FILE - In this Tuesday, April 17, 2012 file photo, Abu Qatada is driven away after being refused bail at a hearing at London's Special Immigration Appeals Commission, which handles deportation and security cases, in London. A radical Islamist cleric accused in British and Spanish courts of being a senior al-Qaida figure is asking a London court to halt his extradition to Jordan, something British authorities have sought for a decade. Abu Qatada is taking his case Wednesday Oct. 10, 2012 to the Special Immigration Appeals Commission, which handles deportation and national security cases. He has fought attempts to extradite him since 2001, arguing that he could be tortured in Jordan, or could be tried using evidence obtained by torture. (AP Photo/Matt Dunham, File)
