The Muslim cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri can be extradited to the US to face terrorism charges, a court has ruled.

The Egyptian-born preacher is currently serving a seven-year jail term in the UK for inciting murder and race hate.

The 49-year-old from west London is wanted by the American authorities on a number of charges.

City of Westminster Magistrates Court approved the extradition, but the decision has to be ratified by the Home Secretary, Jacqui Smith. Daniel Sandford reports.
