Abu Qatada verdict delayed in Jordan

The judge at the trial of radical Jordanian cleric Abu Qatada, accused of a plot in 2000 to attack Israelis and Western targets, says he needs more time before delivering his verdict.

Qatada was extradited from the UK to Jordan last year. British courts claimed he was a senior al-Qaeda figure in Europe.

The verdict has been put back to September the 24th.
