Abu Hamza: UK Home Secretary May hails guilty verdict

The home secretary has hailed the verdict of a New York court which found radical Muslim cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri guilty of supporting terrorism.

Theresa May said the conviction followed "this government's tireless work to successfully remove him from the UK to face trial."

Abu Hamza, 56, came to prominence in the UK for his fiery sermons at the Finsbury Park mosque in North London.
