A Muslim cleric charged with terrorism, including starting a terrorist training camp for al-Qaida here in southern Oregon, pled not guilty in a US court Tuesday.

Abu Hamza al-Masri is accused of supporting the Taliban with money and troops as well as aiding Osama Bin Laden's network.

Investigators also believe that al-Masri attempted to create a terrorist training camp near Bly.

The man was found guilty of promoting racial hatred, and possessing a terrorist document by a British court in 2006.

He was sentenced to seven years in the U.K.

The US has been attempting to prosecute him ever since.
