Alleged Al Qaeda Operative Extradited to the United States

BBC News reports that Abid Naseer, who is accused of playing an instrumental role in the Al Qaeda conspiracy to bomb Manchester in 2009, has been extradited to the United States where prosecutors will try him for the UK plot as part of an alleged larger plan to also attack New York.

UK prosecutors did not believe they had enough evidence to charge Naseer, according to BBC.  The Huffington Post recently reported that Naseer pleaded not guilty to the U.S. charges last week.
