Jailed preacher Abu Hamza said "everybody was happy when the planes hit the World Trade Center", in tapes played in his US terror trial.
Hamza, who was tried under the name Mustafa Kamel Mustafa, later spread violent messages following the attacks of September 11 2001.
His lawyers had asked for him to be given a lesser sentence at a prison medical centre due to his amputations and high blood pressure.
But New York district judge Katherine Forrest today jailed him for life after a jury convicted him of 11 terror offences.
