It doesn't look like a radical Muslim cleric arrested in Britain wants to be sent to the United States.

Abu Hamza al-Masri, also known as Mustafa Kamel Mustafa, was arrested Thursday. A U.S. indictment accuses him of trying to create a terror training camp in Oregon and providing help to al-Qaida.

Appearing before a British magistrate, he shrugged his shoulders and laughed when asked if he would agree to be extradited to America.

He said, "I don't really think I want to, no." He didn't say anything about the specific charges. US officials are seeking his extradition.
