Court: Radical preacher can hold on to UK passport

LONDON — A radical Muslim preacher wanted for trial in the United States can hold on to his British passport, a court ruled Friday, dealing a blow to the seven-year effort to strip one of the country's most notorious Islamists of his citizenship.
Abu Hamza al-Masri's lawyers successfully argued before the Special Immigration Appeals Commission that he had already lost his Egyptian citizenship, and that depriving him of his British passport would effectively make him stateless.
