LONDON (AP) — A British court has approved the extradition of a terror suspect wanted in the United States over a purported plot to detonate explosives on the New York City subway.

City of Westminster Magistrates’ Court says that Abid Naseer can be sent to the U.S. to stand trial for his suspected role in a terror campaign that would have struck at targets in Britain, Norway and the U.S.

Authorities have previously tied the plot to a foiled plan to detonate explosives aboard the New York City subway and a suspected plot to bomb a busy shopping area in the northern England city of Manchester.

The 24-year-old Mr. Naseer, who wore a brown shirt and sported an unruly beard at Friday’s hearing, can appeal the decision.
