Abu Hamza to die behind bars: New York court finds hate preacher GUILTY of setting up terror training camps in US
Guilty verdict: Hate preacher Abu Hamza, 56, who was extradited from the UK in 2012, has been found guilty of terrorism offences in New York on Monday night
- Abu Hamza found guilty of terrorism offences in a Manhattan court
- Hate preacher was extradited from the UK in 2012 to face U.S. justice
- Guilty of aiding Al-Qaeda terrorists and may be jailed for life
Hate preacher Abu Hamza is expected to die behind bars after he was last night found guilty in the US of a string of terror offences.
The hook-handed Islamist cleric – who for years spouted evil on Britain’s streets – was convicted by a New York court of 11 charges after a five-week trial.
The firebrand, 56, had denied helping to organise a hostage-taking in Yemen in 1998 when three Britons were killed.
He also denied supporting Al Qaeda in Afghanistan by sending volunteers and money and trying to set up a terrorist training camp Oregon in 1999. But a jury of eight men and four women took 11 hours to reach their guilty verdict.
The trial took place just a few streets from the site of the attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, which Hamza gloated was a ‘towering day in history’.
