    SANLIURFA, Turkey — When Abu Hamza, a former Syrian rebel, agreed to join the Islamic State, he did so assuming he would become a part of the group’s promised Islamist utopia, which has lured foreign jihadists from around the globe. Instead, he found himself being supervised by an Iraqi emir and receiving orders from shadowy Iraqis... All of the men, however, were former Iraqi officers who had served under Saddam Hussein... His account, and those of others who have lived with or fought against the Islamic State over the past two years, underscore the pervasive role played by members of...

    SANLIURFA, Turkey — When Abu Hamza, a former Syrian rebel, agreed to join the Islamic State, he did so assuming he would become a part of the group’s promised Islamist utopia, which has lured foreign jihadists from around the globe. Instead, he found himself being supervised by an Iraqi emir and receiving orders from shadowy Iraqis who moved in and out of the battlefield in Syria. When Abu Hamza disagreed with fellow commanders at an Islamic State meeting last year, he said, he was placed under arrest on the orders of a masked Iraqi man who had sat silently through...

    NEW YORK — An Islamic cleric convicted of terrorism charges in a 1998 kidnapping that killed four tourists in Yemen and in failed plans to build a terrorist training camp in Oregon was sentenced Friday to life in prison by a judge who called his actions "barbaric" and "misguided." Mustafa Kamel Mustafa, 56, remained composed as U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest announced the sentence, saying it was significant that "you have not expressed sympathy or remorse for the victims of the Yemeni kidnapping." She called his actions "barbaric, misguided and wrong" and read aloud the names of the victims, saying:...

Abu Hamza, 56, is scheduled to appear in U.S. District Court in Manhattan at 10 a.m. to be sentenced. The one-eyed, handless Abu Hamza gained notoriety for his fiery rhetoric and use of a hook in place of his missing right hand. He was found guilty of providing a satellite phone and advice to Yemeni militants who kidnapped Western tourists in...

    SNIPPET: "Two U.S. planes have flown radical Muslim preacher Abu Hamza al-Masri and four other suspected terrorists to the United States, hours after Britain's High Court cleared the way for their extradition. The planes departed a Royal Air Force base immediately after the British High Court rejected last-minute appeals by Hamza and the others. The five had raised legal questions about human rights and prison conditions they expected to face in the United States. In rejecting the appeals, the British court cited an “overwhelming public interest” in seeing the extraditions carried out. Hamza is wanted on U.S. charges that include...

    Radical cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri, the man authorities said tried to set up a terrorist training camp on American soil, is finally on his way to stand trial in the U.S. after an eight-year delay. Hamza, along with four other suspected terrorists, will fly to the States in the custody of U.S. Marshals, British officials told ABC News just hours after the defendants lost a last ditch appeal to the British courts. The officials said there had been "dreadful weather" but they still have "every intention to get them airborne tonight." "There is great relief here that these men who...

    'Five suspected terrorists including Abu Hamza al-Masri can be extradited to the US, ending a long legal battle, UK High Court judges have ruled. The radical cleric, Babar Ahmad, Syed Talha Ahsan, Adel Abdul Bary and Khaled al-Fawwaz failed to show "new and compelling" reasons not to send them. Their appeal came after the European Court of Human Rights backed successive UK courts in ruling for extradition. Judges said their extradition "may proceed immediately". A Home Office spokesman, meanwhile, welcomed the decision and said it was "working to extradite these men as quickly as possible". The BBC understands two US...

    'Hate cleric' Abu Hamza's extradition to US halted after launch of another legal bid By ANI | ANI - Thu 27 Sep, 2012 London, Sep 27 (ANI): Radical Muslim preacher Abu Hamza al-Masri's extradition has been halted after the hook-handed cleric's legal team got a court ruling, preventing him from being sent to the US pending an urgent hearing in open court. It is thought that Hamza's lawyers would argue that his physical and mental health has deteriorated so much that he is not fit to stand trial on terror charges. 12

    'Radical Muslim cleric Abu Hamza can be extradited to the US after Europe's human rights judges rejected his request for an appeal, officials have said. Hamza wanted to fight a European Court of Human Rights ruling that extradition would not breach his human rights. But his request was rejected by a panel of judges, a spokesman for the court said. The unanimous judgment said there would be no human rights breach either as a result of likely detention in ADX Florence "supermax" prison in Colorado, or the length of possible sentences on conviction. The decision means Hamza, who was jailed...

    NEW DELHI: The agreement between David Coleman Headley and US authorities, under which he pleaded guilty to being part of the 26/11 plot in order to dodge the death sentence and extradition to India, has considerably abated the fear here that the Americans would let off Headley aka Daood Gilani, a suspected "double agent", lightly. It also marks a big boost to New Delhi's efforts to expose Pakistan's propaganda to project Lashkar as a group focused on J&K. Details of the "guilty" plea made by Headley validate India's claims about the Lashkar leadership masterminding 26/11, and suggest that the American...

    The radical cleric argued that such a move would render him "stateless" as he had already been stripped of his Egyptian citizenship. In his ruling, Mr Justice Mitting said: "We are satisfied on balance of probabilities that if a deprivation order were to be made, the appellant (Hamza) would be made stateless. Hamza, 52, was jailed for seven years in February 2006 for inciting murder and race hate. He is in Belmarsh Prison as he challenges attempts to extradite him to the US on terror charges. That case was delayed by the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg in...
