Abu Hamza extradition: US courts hear terror suspects


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

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

In the same court, Adel Abdul Bary and Khaled al-Fawwaz pleaded not guilty.

Earlier, Babar Ahmad and Talha Ahsan pleaded not guilty in a court in Connecticut.
