David Cameron: 'UK should extradite faster'

David Cameron has pledged to speed up the deportation of people who pose a threat to Britain following the conviction in the United States of radical cleric Abu Hamza on terrorism charges.

The north London preacher, who was tried under the name Mustafa Kamel Mustafa, could face life in prison after a federal court in New York found him guilty of supporting terrorist organisations, including aiding the taking of hostages in Yemen, and seeking to set up an al Qaida training camp in the US.

The Prime Minister was speaking on Radio 4's Today programme.
