Muslim Cleric Arrested in London on U.S. Charges

British authorities arrest a Muslim cleric accused by the United States of being part of several terrorist plots. A U.S. indictment names Abu Hamza al-Masri in the 1998 kidnapping in Yemen that ended with the death of four tourists; his extradition is being sought. Authorities also link al-Masri to terror suspect Zacarias Moussaoui and a terrorist training camp in Oregon. NPR's Brian Naylor reports.
