Terror suspect extradited to US

Source: BBC News

A terrorism suspect accused of leading an al-Qaeda plot to set off bombs in the centre of Manchester has been extradited to the US.

Abid Naseer has been described by a High Court judge as "an al-Qaeda operative" who "poses a serious threat to the national security of the UK".

In December his case was thrown out of the European Court of Human Rights.

This paved the way for his removal to the US where he is wanted on a number of terrorism charges.

2. see within the link :

the CPS found there was insufficient evidence to prosecute him ......which means there were no UK charges.


A potential breakthrough was made in July 2010 when the FBI announced it had charged Mr Naseer and wanted to try him in New York. They allege he was part of an international terror plot which also included a thwarted suicide attack on the city's subway.

It follows from the above that the only charges were made by the US.
