For years, the radical imam Abu Hamza al-Masri delivered incendiary sermons at a London mosque, using words that US and UK authorities say helped inspire a generation of militants, including British would-be shoe bomber Richard Reid.

On Friday, he will have one final chance to convince a US judge that he should not spend the rest of his life in prison, eight months after a federal jury in New York convicted him of terrorism charges.

Abu Hamza, 56, was scheduled to appear in court in Manhattan to be sentenced.
