Suspect loses deportation appeal

A suspected terrorist with links to the failed July 21 bombings in London will be deported to Ethiopia in the interests of national security, a court has ruled.

Home Secretary Theresa May said the test case was a success for the UK's policy of "deportations with assurances", which sees individuals who could not ordinarily be deported due to the risk of human rights violations, being returned with diplomatic agreement that they will not face danger.
The 32-year-old man, named only as XX, attended a terrorist training camp in the UK, visited Somalia for extremist purposes and was closely associated with those involved in the attempted London bombings on July 21, 2005, the Special Immigration Appeals Commission heard. Mr Justice Mitting dismissed his appeal against deportation.
