Terror extraditions 'a watershed moment'

US Attorney Preet Bharara said the extraditions of five terror suspects from the UK to the US were a "watershed moment in our nation's effort to eradicate terrorism"

As is charged, these are men who were at the nerve centres of al Qaida's acts of terror, and they caused blood to be shed, lives to be lost, and families to be shattered.

Hamza will be housed in Manhattan along with 50-year-old Khaled al-Fawwaz and 52-year-old Adel Abdul Bary, whilst 33-year Syed Talha Ahsan and 38-year-old Babar Ahmad will be held in Connecticut.
