The US government has said Islamic preacher Abu Hamza tried to create an al-Qaida terrorist training camp in Oregon in late 1999 and early 2000, during opening arguments at his trial in New York.
Mr Hamza is also charged with helping kidnappers in Yemen in a 1998 attack that killed four people, and of arranging for fighters to attend an Afghanistan al Qaida training camp.
But the defence lawyer for Abu Hamza - who is also known by the aliases Mustafa Kamel Mustafa and Abu Hamza al-Masri - said he has never harmed Americans.
