The European Court of Human Rights has backed terror extraditions from the UK to the United States.
The Strasbourg court held there would be no violation of human rights for those facing life and solitary confinement in a supermax prison.
The court sanctioned the extradition of Abu Hamza, Babar Ahmad and three others.
Judges said they would consider further the case of another suspect because of mental health issues.
The court's ruling can still hypothetically be appealed to its final Grand Chamber - but in practice very few cases are reheard in that final forum.
The men have three months to try to persuade the Grand Chamber to reopen the entire case and examine it. If the men fail to launch an appeal, they will be extradited to the United States.
A spokesman for Babar Ahmad, who has been held for a record of nearly eight years without trial, said he would fight on against extradition.

THE MEN FACING EXTRADITION
Haroon Aswat - case adjourned
Adel Abdul Bary
Last week, he appealed in a BBC interview to be charged and tried in the UK because his alleged crimes were committed here.
The European Court said there would be no breach of human rights if the men were to be held at ADX Florence, a Federal Supermax jail used for people convicted of terrorism offences.
Abu Hamza is unlikely to be held at that jail because of his disabilities. The court also held that the life sentences each man faces would not breach human rights.
But in one case, Haroon Aswat, judges said they could not yet give the go-ahead to extradition because they needed to see more submissions on his schizophrenia and how that would be treated were he sent to the US.
I'll only believe it when it happens, these people wriggle for years and nobody gets a grip on the B*****s, there'll be appeal after appeal for years yet. Pisses me off, we all know he's guilty and the problem could be solved with one good old 7.62 from a rusty old SLR.
Is this, perhaps, the start of a new era in which the European court of human rights (or whatever it is called) has finally woken up to the fact that subscribing states are getting fed up with them and, if they dont start making some semblance of common sense in their judgements, they will simply be ignored and rapidly become irrelevant.
The prospect of these scum being driven into RAF Northolt,then on to a shiny CIA Gulfstream for a one way flight to supermax is certainly good news.Entertainment may be a bit limited as the passengers are hopefully going to be schackled.
The choice of in flight meal should be a traditional English breakfast,with bacon and pork sausages,or rat sh*t.
Just seen on BBC World some lawyer who is representing one of these scum going on about no possibilty of a fair trial in the States.said lawyer was another probable terrorist Islamic cnut,who should also be on a one way trip to supermax.
