Court: 5 terror suspects can be sent to the US

By the CNN Wire Staff

The European Court of Human Rights ruled against five terror suspects Tuesday saying that they can be extradited to America despite their claims that they will be poorly treated.

The court ruled that the suspects would not get "ill treatment" in super-maximum security prisons if they are extradited to the United States and convicted in American courts, according to a statement from the European Court of Human Rights.

The court still needs to make a decision on one other suspect connected to the case.

The ruling adds another chapter to the long-running legal battle that started when the six suspects where indicted by the United States between the years of 1999 and 2006. The suspects were all arrested in the United Kingdom and have been fighting extradition to the United States for years.

Several of the suspects were alleged to have links to the late Osama bin Laden, the European Court of Human Rights said.
