A radical Muslim cleric who served time in a British jail for inciting murder and stirring racial hatred has arrived in Jamaica, the second time he was deported to his native country.

Abdullah el-Faisal arrived in Kingston by private jet Friday night after he traveled from Burkina Faso to Antigua via Cape Verde, authorities said.

Faisal spoke briefly to reporters before he left in a minivan with two members of the local Muslim community.

"I'm traveling for two days and you want me to give you an interview?" he was quoted as saying in Saturday's edition of the Jamaica Observer newspaper. "It was a very good flight. It was a private jet. I am very happy to be back home."

It is unclear where Faisal will live. He previously lived in Spanish Town, just outside Kingston.
