Abu Hamza gives emotional testimony in U.S. terrorism trial

Taking the stand in a New York federal court -- the handless, one-eyed muslim cleric, Abu Hamza al-Masri. He testified that he was injured in an accidental explosion in Pakistan two decades ago, while working with the Pakistani army as a civil engineer. A different story from what has been widely reported -- that he was injured while fighting the Soviets in Afghanistan. He broke down in tears, while describing his visit to Srebrenica in the aftermath of the 1995 massacre. He said it convinced him that young Muslims, even children, needed training to defend themselves against oppressors. Abu Hamza is accused of aiding terrorism, and faces life in prison if found guilty.
