(CNN) -- A European court on Monday ruled that radical Muslim cleric Abu Hamza can be extradited from Great Britain to the United States, where he faces a host of terrorism charges.
The European Human Rights Court issued its ruling clearing the way for Hamza's extradition. This means that he can now be moved to the United States.
Hamza faces 11 charges in U.S. courts, including conspiracy in connection with a 1998 kidnapping in Yemen and conspiring with others to establish an Islamic jihad training camp in rural Oregon in 1999.
The British Home Office issued a statement Monday saying it "welcomes" Monday's decision, which also affects several others wanted in the United States.
"We will work to ensure that the individuals are handed over to the U.S. authorities as quickly as possible," the office said in its statement.
