BBC apologises to the queen
The BBC has apologised for revealing details of a conversation with Queen Elizabeth.
In the discussion, the monarch allegedly voiced concerns about the UK's inability to arrest Abu Hamza al-Masri, a radical cleric.
Considered Britain's most recognisable extremist, al-Masri is wanted in the US for a raft of alleged terrorist offenses.
A European court decision on Monday cleared the way for his extradition and that of four other terror suspects.
He could now be deported within weeks.
Yesterday, BBC journalist Frank Gardner recounted that, years ago, the queen said she was upset that al-Masri had not been arrested.
The BBC later apologised for the breach of confidence in revealing the details of a private conversation.
