4. Germany preparing to deport convicted Sept 11 suspect
A Moroccan man convicted of helping Mohamed Atta and the other Hamburg-based Sept. 11 suicide pilots as they plotted their attacks on New York and Washington was deported Monday from Germany to his native country.
Mounir el Motassadeq, who was convicted of membership in a terrorist organization and accessory to the murder of the 246 passengers and crew on the four jetliners used in the 2001 attacks, was flown by helicopter from a Hamburg prison on Monday morning.
Blindfolded and with his hands and ankles shackled, the 44-year-old was then led by two police officers to another helicopter while other heavily armed police in balaclavas patrolled the area and watched from rooftops. [...]
El Motassadeq was released shortly before completing his 15-year-sentence on the condition that he agree to be deported to Morocco. That would allow Germany to re-arrest him if he ever returned to the country.

6. Anjem Choudary: Radical preacher has assets frozen
Radical preacher Anjem Choudary has had his assets frozen, days before he is due to leave prison.
The 51-year-old, who was jailed for five-and-a-half years for inviting support for the Islamic State group, is expected to be released on Friday.
The BBC understands police have been preparing a list of up to 20 measures to control the east London preacher.
The government's asset freezing team confirmed Choudary had been listed on a global record of known terrorists.
Former Met terror chief Richard Walton told BBC Newsnight that Choudary was a “hardened dangerous terrorist” and someone who has had a “huge influence on Islamist extremism in this country.”
The international list, overseen by the United Nations Security Council, is designed to prevent targets spending money on their causes.

Islamic State-linked extremists in Nigeria have killed another abducted health worker despite an urgent plea from the International Committee of the Red Cross to spare her life, Nigeria's government said late Monday.
The government identified her as Hauwa Mohammed Liman, who had been working in a hospital supported by the ICRC.
Her death comes a month after a third abducted health worker was killed by the same group, the Islamic State West Africa Province. It has become the largest IS-linked extremist group in Africa.
10. UK: Government Blocks Study into Radical Islam and Conversion in UK Jails
The Ministry of Justice has blocked a study examining why so many convicts and prisoners in the UK are converting to Islam and turning to extremism.
A so-called “corporate culture” in the government department was blamed for the move, with officials allegedly worried about what the academic study might unearth or reveal.
Many of the UK’s homegrown extremists have converted to Islam in jail, including the Westminster terrorist attacker Khalid Masood, with some prisons allegedly controlled by Islamic gangs and prisoners forced to covert for their own protection.
The proposed three-year study was supported by Max Hill, the independent reviewer of terrorism laws, but the prison service did not want outsiders studying such a sensitive area, The Times reports.
“The scale of radicalisation should not be overestimated but in certain prisons it is certainly growing,” a source told the newspaper.
