NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — The U.S. Marshal for Connecticut says two terror suspects will face a Saturday hearing in New Haven if they are extradited as planned from Britain.
Babar Ahmad and Syed Talha Ahsan face federal charges of running Web sites to raise cash, recruit fighters and seek equipment for terrorists in Afghanistan and Chechnya. An Internet service provider in Connecticut was allegedly used to host one of the Web sites.
They are among five suspects facing extradition to the U.S. after Britain's High Court ruled Friday that they have no more grounds for appeal after lengthy court fights. The British government said it planned to fly the men out quickly.
Marshal Joseph Faughnan (FOR-nan) says a hearing is scheduled for Ahmad and Ahsan in U.S. District Court on Saturday morning.
