Accused terrorist Abu Hamza, who has been linked to al Qaeda, has been ordered to be extradited from the U.K. to the the U.S. following a years-long legal battle. The Egyptian-born 54-year-old is wanted in the U.S. for allegedly setting up a terrorist training camp in Oregon, and helping al Qaeda seize hostages in Yemen. The U.K. High Court rejected Abu Hamza's plea to delay his extradition so that he could undergo an MRI scan that would show that he is unfit for trial because of degenerative brain problems. Four other terror suspects will also be extradited.
