Briton facing extradition to US
Mr Aswat was initially detained in Lusaka jail in Zambia
A British terror suspect can be extradited to the US, a judge at Bow Street Magistrates court has ruled.
US authorities say Haroon Rashid Aswat, 31, tried to set up a camp in Oregon between 1999 and 2000 to train people to fight in Afghanistan.
Home Secretary Charles Clarke has up to two months to approve the extradition of Mr Aswat, of Dewsbury, Yorkshire.
Mr Aswat, who denies the charges, was deported from Zambia in August after he was arrested and held in Lusaka jail.
Why was he deported to the UK rather than directly to the USA ?
It seems that the District Judge Timothy Workman has repeated his judgement stemming from the Babar Ahmad case., which may set a precedent for the Gary McKinnon and other pending cases.
