UK: Muslim anti-gay cleric Abu Hamza launches new appeal
Abu Hamza has launched a last minute High Court appeal to avoid extradition to the US on terror charges.
The Home Office said the extradition would happen “as quickly as possible”.
Hamza is wanted over allegations he plotted to set up a terrorist training camp in the US and was involved in kidnapping Western hostages in Yemen.
According to the Mirror, in 2007, he launched a complaint after learning that his former care nurse happened to be a gay man.
Hamza has a hook instead of a right hand, and requires help from a nurse to wash and dress.
Hamza was convicted and jailed for seven years on charges of inciting murder and stirring up racial hatred in the UK in 2006.
