Afghan asylum seeker wins right to stay in Britain after converting to Christianity
by Tom Kelly
An Afghan who arrived in Britain on a hijacked jet has been granted asylum after converting to Christianity.
The man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, used human rights rules to overturn a Home Office decision to deport him.
The former Kabul hotel worker claimed he could be executed under Sharia law if he returned home after switching religions.
