Radical Muslim cleric Abu Hamza can be extradited to the US after Europe's human rights judges rejected his request for an appeal, officials have said.Hamza wanted to appeal a European Court of Human Rights ruling that extradition would not breach his human rights.
But his request was rejected by a panel of judges, a spokesman for the court said.
The unanimous judgment said there would be no human rights breach either as a result of likely detention in ADX Florence "supermax" prison in Colorado, or the length of possible sentences on conviction.
The decision means Hamza, who was jailed for seven years for soliciting to murder and inciting racial hatred, can now be extradited with four others, including terror suspect Babar Ahmad.
