UK-Algeria talks on deportation of terror suspects?

Kim Howells, UK Foreign Office Minister, is visiting Algeria, where "he will hold high level discussions with the Head of Government and the Foreign Minister." The topics of discussion were not mentioned, but are likely to include the proposal to sign a memorandum of understanding, similar to that recently signed with Libya, whereby Algeria would undertake not to, um, mistreat any people extradited from the UK to Algeria, thus allowing the UK to expel a number of people without technically falling foul of the Human Rights Act. A useful side-effect for Algeria is that it would probably be able to get Rafik Khalifa back, as Liberte speculates.
