Abu Hamza Found Guilty Of Terror Charges In Us Court

Radical Muslim cleric Abu Hamza has been found guilty of supporting terrorism by an American court.

He was accused of conspiring to aid organisations like al-Qaeda.

Prosecutors at the court in New York said Abu Hamza - who was tried as Mustafa Kamel Mustafa - assisted the kidnappers of 16 tourists in Yemen in 1998 and attempted to build a terrorist training camp in Oregon.

The 56-year-old had denied the charges.

Can't say I'm surprised by the decision.

Undoubtably, an unpleasant man with a horrible outlook on life - but like many figureheads he'll likely have taken precautions to keep his hands clean. He's a bit of Gerry Adams figure to me.

Definitely a bit of smell of show trial about it, e.g. holding it close the WTC etc. So not surprised by the verdict.

Possibly he has inspired others to do awful things, but his imprisonment is unlikely to stop that.
