NEW YORK —

Lawyers for an Egyptian Islamic preacher extradited from Great Britain in a terrorism case say the U.S. government has imposed harsh pre-trial restrictions.

The lawyers say special administrative measures were imposed about a week ago on Mustafa Kamel Mustafa (muh-STAH'-fuh kah-MEHL' muh-STAH'-fuh). They say that severely limits his communications and what he can read at a federal lockup in Manhattan.

Attorney Lindsay Lewis says the restrictions are more difficult for a defendant who has trouble getting around because he has no hands.

He has pleaded not guilty to conspiring with Seattle men to set up a terrorist training camp in Oregon. He's also accused of helping abduct two American tourists and 14 other people in Yemen in 1998.

Prosecutors did not immediately return a message for comment.
