NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - Two terrorism suspects charged with operating websites that sought to raise cash, recruit fighters and obtain equipment for terrorists in Afghanistan and Chechnya face a Connecticut court hearing on Saturday following their extradition from Britain.
Babar Ahmad and Syed Talha Ahsan are to stand trial in Connecticut, where an Internet service provider was allegedly used to host 1 of the websites.
The two are among five suspects who were flown to the U.S. late Friday after Britain's High Court ruled they had exhausted their appeals after lengthy court fights.
A hearing was scheduled for Ahmad and Ahsan in U.S. District Court in New Haven. Ahmad has been held without trial for eight years in a British prison.
