Abu Hamza interview 'stood out' in evidence, juror says

A taped interview with a woman whose kidnapping was aided by Abu Hamza "stood out" in the imam's trial, a juror has said.

A recording of a conversation with the Egyptian-born preacher conducted by Mary Quin - a New Zealand national who was one of 16 tourists captured in Yemen in 1998 - was played to the court and "spoke in my mind significantly", Howard Baynson said.

In the tape, recorded during a visit to London's Finsbury Park mosque, the cleric told her "we never thought it would get that bad" - referring to the death of four of her travel companions.
