A British court is expected to rule on whether extremist cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri is too ill to be extradited to the United States to face terror charges. London's High Court is set to decide Friday Oct. 5, 2012 whether al-Masri and other terror suspects can be sent to the U.S. to face charges that include helping set up a terrorist training camp in rural Oregon.

NEW YORK (AP) — Radical preacher Abu Hamza al-Masri (AH'-boo HAHM'-zuh ahl MAHZ'-ree) and two other terrorism suspects who fought for years to avoid facing charges in the United States have appeared in a New York court, hours after being extradited from Britain.
Al-Masri has hooks in place of hands, but he came into court without prosthetics and complained through his lawyer that he wants them given back. The brief hearing ended Saturday without him entering a plea.
The others, Khaled al-Fawwaz and Adel Abdul Bary pleaded not guilty.
Lawyers for both al-Fawwaz and Bary note the ailments of their clients and say they're concerned that they get their medication. The lawyers did not seek bail for their clients though Bary's attorney reserved the right to do so in the future.
