An extremist Egyptian-born preacher entered a U.S. courtroom Saturday for the first time to face multiple terrorism charges, complaining that his prosthetic hooks, medication and special shoes were taken away from him. The preacher was one of five terror defendants rounded up in Britain and extradited overnight to the United States.
Radical preacher Abu Hamza al-Masri and four other terror suspects can be extradited immediately to the U.S. to face charges there, Britain's High Court ruled Friday.
A British man accused of terrorist fundraising launched a High Court bid on Monday to halt his extradition to the United States, mirroring a similar move by radical cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri.
A British court issued an interim injunction Wednesday blocking the extradition of a radical cleric to the United States on terror charges and granted a court hearing for an appeal.
