Radical cleric Omar Bakri flees UK

Omar Bakri Mohammed has left the country Channel 4 News has reported tonight. The radical cleric, a former meber of Al Muhajiroun, has fled to Lebanon according to reports. He has courted controversy for 'inciting terrorism' and told Channel 4 News on Friday that he would not report a suicide bomber to police. He apparently left Britain on Saturday. This comes in the wake of possible changes to the British law proposed earlier this week by Tony Blair in order the combat the 'new enemy in our midst'. Meanwhile four would-be bombers arrived at a high security court at Belmarsh today charged with a number of terror related offences. All were remanded in custody until November.
