Omar Bakri Mohammed held in Lebanon

The Sun Online - News has it that Lebanon has arrested the hate-spewing cleric who fled London immediately after Tony Blair announced that those who preached intolerance, those who promoted violence in Britain would be dealt with.

Bakri is, by birth, a Syrian, with a Lebanese wife... but I get the sense that, recently, having native in-laws doesn't get you very far in Beirut, if you've had a habit of suppporting oppressive regimes and the like. I wonder what the Lebanese security forces will do with him?
