Five terror suspects have left the UK on a jet bound for the US

The suspects, including the radical cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri, have flown out of the UK on a jet bound for the United States.
Officers from Scotland Yard’s extradition unit handed the men to US marshals at RAF Mildenhall in Suffolk.
Earlier, High Court judges earlier dismissed the men’s final appeal against extradition to the US to face terror charges.
