LONDON  - Britain's attorney general said Tuesday he was "very concerned" about the release on bail of radical cleric Abu Qatada, amid a hail of press criticism, but said the government was bound by the rule of law. A British judge on Monday ordered the release of the 51-year-old Jordanian, allegedly a former top aide of late Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden, under strict bail conditions despite government concerns he poses a security risk. Qatada has been fighting British attempts to deport him to Jordan for more than six years, most of which he has spent in jail, but without charge.
