British hate preacher Abu Hamza once managed a London strip club

British hate preacher Abu Hamza told his U.S. terror trial Wednesday how he once jointly managed a London strip club in his quest to live a Western, movie-style life.

Mustafa Kamel Mustafa, 56, better known in Britain as Abu Hamza al-Masri, has pleaded not guilty to 11 kidnapping and terror counts that pre-date the 9/11 attacks.

Blind in one eye and with both hands blown off in an explosion in Afghanistan, he faces life in prison in a maximum security U.S. prison if convicted by jury at the New York court.
