Earlier today, a court granted Mohamed Haneef bail on a charge of providing support for a terrorist organization.

But hours later, Australian Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews said Haneef's work visa was cancelled and that he would be held in an immigration detention center until the charge against him was heard in court.

Two people in Britain have also been charged in relation to the failed attacks in London and Glasgow.
