AMMAN - A Jordanian court acquitted radical Muslim cleric Abu Qatada on Wednesday of charges of providing spiritual and material support for a plot to attack tourists during Jordan's New Year celebrations in 2000, a judicial source said.

Jordan's state security court ruled that the charges lacked sufficient evidence, the source said.
