Britain's high court has ruled that radical preacher Abu Hamza al-Masri and four other terror suspects can be extradited to the US.

Judge John Thomas says these are the final proceedings in the suspects' yearslong battles to avoid going to the US.

Britain has said it will act immediately to remove them.

Al-Masri, who turned London's Finsbury Park Mosque into a training ground for radical Islamists, is wanted in the US on charges that include helping set up a terrorist training camp in Oregon.
