Detainee G loses appeal

The government is to deport a suspected Algerian terrorist who is alleged to have plotted a string of atrocities across Europe and sent young British Muslims to Afghanistan to train as jihadis.

The man, known only as 'G', has lost his appeal against deportation in the Special Immigration Appeals Court (SIAC), the body that hears in private the evidence against terrorist suspects the government cannot charge but believes are a threat to national security. The judgment has dismayed human rights groups, who say that 'G' faces torture if returned to Algeria.
