Extremist leader Omar Bakri arrested in Beirut.
The radical muslim leader Omar Bakri, who has fled from London, has been arrested. It's not clear why.
He is the former leader of Al-Muhajiroon, and has praised the September 11 bombers as the 'magnificent 19'.
More recently he said he would not inform police about potential suicide bombers in Britain.
He fled to Lebanon when it became clear that he would be arrested in Britain. He is still threatened with detention if he returns.
Bakri has joint Lebanese-Syrian nationality, but hails from Jordan. He went to Britain in exile from Jordan, and began preaching hatred.
His supporters campaigned outside British mosques, after being barred from many mosques.
