Britain can extradite jailed radical Muslim preacher Abu Hamza and four other alleged terrorists to the United States, the European Court of Human Rights ruled Tuesday. The court found that the men's human rights would not be violated if they were extradited, but allowed a three-month stay for appeal. The men claimed that conditions at the ADX supermax prison in Florence, Colorado -- used for people convicted of terrorism -- and possible multiple life sentences they face would be grossly disproportionate and amount to inhuman or degrading treatment. The Strasbourg-based court said Mustafa Kamal Mustafa, as Abu Hamza is also known, and four others -- Babar Ahmad, Syed Tahla Ahsan, Adel Abdul Bary and Khaled Al-Fawwaz -- could be extradited.
