AMMAN, Jordan: A Jordanian military court will start on Tuesday to hear the trial of a radical Muslim preacher deported from Britain to face terrorism charges at home, a court official said.

Prosecutors have charged the cleric, Abu Qatada, 53, with conspiring to carry out terrorist attacks against Israelis, Americans and other Westerners in Jordan in two foiled plots in 1999 and 2000. In both cases, Abu Qatada was convicted in absentia years ago and sentenced to life in prison.
