NEW YORK (AP) — Two men brought from England to face terrorism charges have made their first appearance before the New York judge who will oversee their trial.

Khaled al-Fawwaz and Adel Abdul Bary are charged in a plot to blow up U.S. embassies in Africa. They appeared Tuesday in Manhattan federal court.

Another Manhattan judge is conducting a hearing for Egyptian-born preacher Abu Hamza al-Masri (AH’-boo HAHM’-zuh ahl MAHZ’-ree).

He’s accused of conspiring with Seattle men to set up a terrorist training camp in Oregon and helping a plot to abduct 16 hostages in Yemen in 1998.
