Swede accused of U.S. terror camp plans can be extradited to U.S.

A Czech court ruled Wednesday that a Swedish citizen wanted in the U.S. on suspicion of plotting to set up a terrorist camp there can be extradited.

Czech Radio said that Oussama Kassir immediately appealed the decision of the Municipal Court in Prague.

If a higher court upholds the ruling, it will be up to the Justice Minister to decide whether Kassir should be extradited.

The judge and the court's spokesman could not be reached Wednesday.

Kassir was arrested on Dec. 11, 2005, at Prague's Ruzyne international airport while flying from Stockholm, Sweden, to Beirut, Lebanon. He has been held in a Czech prison ever since. The United States requested his extradition in February 2006.

Kassir has been charged in the United States with taking part in a plot to set up a terrorist training camp in Oregon. Kassir allegedly wanted to teach military-style methods to Muslims seeking to travel to Afghanistan to fight or receive further training there.

A U.S. court has issued an international warrant for his arrest.

Kassir was born in Lebanon and moved to Sweden in 1984. He became a citizen five years later.

He spent several months in prison in 1998 for assaulting a police officer and drug possession. A Swedish court jailed Kassir for 10 months two years ago for illegal weapons possession.
