Al-Qaida's North African affiliate offered to free a British hostage if London allowed radical cleric Abu Qatada to leave Britain for another country. Al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb in a statement posted Monday, April 30, 2012 on a militant website said it would release Stephen Malcolm if Abu Qatada were let go. (AP Photo/Matt Dunham, File)
