British man fails to block extradition to US in terror case
LONDON (AP) — A court on Wednesday rejected a British man’s attempt to block his extradition to the United States to face charges of running Web sites supporting terrorism.
Lawyers for Babar Ahmad, 32, had sought to prevent his extradition so that he could pursue a civil case accusing London’s Metropolitan Police of assault at the time of his arrest. Extradition, they said, would breach his right to testify in the civil case.
Lord Justice Roger Thomas and Justice Peter Gross ruled that Ahmad did not have an arguable case.
Ahmad was indicted in the U.S. state of Connecticut in 2004, accused of running several Web sites including Azzam.com, which investigators say was used to recruit members for the al-Qaida network, Chechen rebels and the Taliban in Afghanistan.
