Islamist cleric Abu Hamza has appeared in court in the US, having been extradited from the UK with four other terror suspects after a long legal battle.

He faces 11 charges in the US relating to hostage-taking, conspiracy to establish a militant training camp and calling for holy war in Afghanistan.

Hamza appeared briefly in a New York court before being taken into custody, ahead of a plea hearing scheduled for Tuesday.

The BBC's Barbara Plett described events in court.
