NEW YORK (AP) — An Egyptian-born preacher has pleaded not guilty in New York to charges that he conspired with Seattle men to set up a terrorist training camp in Oregon.

Abu Hamza al-Masri appeared in Manhattan federal court.

Earlier Tuesday, two men brought from England to face terrorism charges made their first appearance before another Manhattan judge. Their trial was set for October 2013.

Khaled al-Fawwaz and Adel Abdul Bary are charged in an alleged plot to blow up U.S. embassies in Africa.
