Osama bin Laden’s former London spokesman is set to return to Britain a free man after being released from jail in the United States.
Adel Abdel Bary, 60, was convicted for his part in the terror attacks on US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania that killed 224 and wounded another 5,000 people in 1998.
A year later he was arrested in Britain and eventually extradited to the US after a protracted legal battle. He agreed a plea deal that involved admitting three charges, including conspiracy to murder US citizens abroad. In 2015 he was sentenced to 25 years’ jail, but consideration was given to the 16 years he had already spent in custody.
