A lawyer for two Canadians wanted by the FBI following the death of a controversial imam in a police shootout in Detroit says they plan to fight extradition.

The two men, Mohammad Al-Sahli, 33, and Yassir Ali Khan, 30, both of Windsor, Ontario, appeared briefly in court on Monday.

Lawyer Patrick Ducharme says their case was put over until Friday for a bail hearing.

The men, arrested Saturday, remain in jail.

The FBI accuses the men of a conspiracy to sell stolen goods, and says they were followers of Imam Luqman Ameen Abdullah.

A police complaint suggests the imam espoused violence and sought to establish a Shariah-law state within the United States, a claim his mosque calls preposterous.
