166 inmates remain. 3 convicted, 30 to face trial. 50 in legal no-man's-land, too dangerous to release but against whom there is not enough evidence to prosecute. And then there are 86 who have been cleared for release, yet aren't released.

Muslims Against Crusades to be banned from midnight | UK news | The Guardian
'Home secretary announces ban on group, which burned poppies last November and was planning Armistice Day protest this year'

But they're doing it for the fact that they're glorifying terrorism, and they're apparently just a renaming of an already banned group, not for burning poppies, so I have less issue with the ban.

Anders Behring Breivik's not a terrorist, he's a mass-murderer | World news | The Guardian
"The Norwegian killer is insane and those trying to give meaning to his actions should stop". Yes, really, we should stop looking at why he did this, and just dismiss him as a loon. That'd be helpful. Really! And of course, he's not Muslim, so he can't be a terrorist really anyway. Or? Not.
