Radical cleric Omar Bakri, on bail in Lebanon on charges including incitement to murder, attends a sit-in in the southern Lebanese port city of Sidon on June 29, 2012, demanding the disarming of the Shiite militant group Hezbollah, considered the most powerful military force in the country. The Syrian-born cleric and holder of Lebanese nationality, who earned notoriety by praising the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States, was banned in 2005 from returning to Britain, where he was based for nearly two decades, under government curbs introduced following the London underground and bus bombings that year.
