Abid Naseer was extradited from Britain.

A British terror suspect has been extradited to the United States to face charges for what authorities say is his role in an al-Qaida plot targeting New York’s subways as well as interests in Europe.

26-year-old Abid Naseer was in Brooklyn Federal Court this afternoon, where he pleaded not guilty. He faces a laundry list of charges that includes providing and conspiring to provide material support to al-Qaida.

His next court date is March 7. If convicted on all counts, Naseer is looking at a maximum sentence of life in prison.
