[JURIST] Omar Bakri Mohammed, the British cleric who fled to Lebanon [JURIST report] after being named in an investigation into possible treason charges [JURIST report] for allegedly praising the London bombings, was detained by Lebanese police Thursday. Bakri, who has dual Lebanese-Syrian citizenship, arrived in the country on Saturday, shortly after the British government announced plans to deport and exclude from the UK those who advocate violence. Bakri is alleged to have praised the bombers and promised not to tell authorities if he learned about plans for future terrorist attacks. He denies talking about the bombings [AFP report] and says he plans to return to London. Lebanese police cited no reasons for his detention. CNN has more.
