SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters):  A United States judge Tuesday sided with a Malaysian woman challenging the US federal government's no-fly policy and ruled that existing procedures to correct mistakes on that list do not provide adequate due process protection.

US District Judge William Alsup in San Francisco ruled on a lawsuit brought by Rahinah Ibrahim,(pic) a Malaysian citizen. The US no-fly policy excludes individuals from commercial air travel if they are suspected of having ties to terrorism, but critics say it is practically impossible to be removed from the list once on it.
