Oct. 9, 2012 at 4:27 PM

NEW YORK, Oct. 9 (UPI) -- Abu Hamza, the radical Muslim cleric extradited from Britain after a lengthy court fight, pleaded not guilty to terrorism charges Tuesday in New York.

Mustafa Kamel Mustafa, who served as an imam in London under the name Abu Hamza al-Masri, arrived in New York early Saturday with four other terror suspects. He is charged with a kidnapping in Yemen that left four people dead and with attempting to set up a training camp in Oregon, the New York Post reported.

Abu Hamza was sentenced to seven years in prison in Britain for inciting racial hatred.
