THE HAGUE, Netherlands — The Dutch Supreme Court rejected the final appeal Tuesday of a Somali man against his extradition to the United States, where he is wanted for allegedly aiding an Islamist terror group.

The court ruled that Mohamud Said Omar has no further grounds for appeal, but his lawyer said he would urge the Dutch justice minister not to sign off on any extradition order.

"We're not there yet, he's not on the plane yet," Omar's lawyer, Bart Stapert told The Associated Press. "We will do whatever we can to raise all arguments against the extradition."
