    The radical cleric Abu Hamza may soon be on his way to the United States, along with four other men, now that the European court of human rights has ruled their rights won’t be violated by extradition. In 2006 Hamza was sentenced to seven years in prison for inciting hatred at his north London mosque, and he’s also accused of attempting to set up a terrorist training camp in Oregon in 1999 and working with the Taliban to kidnap 16 Western tourists in Yemen. Hamza had claimed that extradition to the U.S. would violate his human rights because he could be placed in solitary confinement.
