The European Court of Human Rights has given its final approval for the extradition of five major terrorism suspects from the UK to the US.
The court’s highest judges said they would not re-open the cases of Abu Hamza al-Masri, Babar Ahmad and others.
The decision means that the extradition of the five men, wanted for years by the US, is likely to happen within weeks.
Each man said they would face inhumane treatment in the United States.
In a brief statement, the Home Office said that it welcomed the decision and would work to ensure the extraditions would happen as quickly as possible.
