The UK's high court ruled on Friday that pro-Palestinian Israeli-Arab activist Raed Salah was held unlawfully in the UK, and is entitled to compensation.

Salah was detained on order of the UK Home Secretary, Theresa May, shortly after his arrival in the country last June.

The 52-year-old leader of the Islamic Movement's northern branch entered the UK despite being banned from the country.
