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.
His attorney Sabrina Shroff told reporters Thursday that her client "flatly denies the accusations in the indictment."
Still, she added, "He seemed very much like a gentleman."
