The radical cleric was extradited to face a judge in New York within hours of losing his legal battle to stay in Great Britain . Hamza and the other terror suspects arrived at Westchester County Airport in New York at 02:30 am local time. Hamza was taken to a lockup next to the federal courthouse in lower Manhattan. On Saturday, Hamza was expected to be briefly presented before the US Magistrate Judge Frank Maas, and later, is scheduled to appear at a lengthier court session on Tuesday.
