UK 21/7 bomb suspect is extradited to Britain

Hamdi Isaac, also known as Osman Hussain, and arrested last month in Italy in connection with the 21/7 failed attacks in London, is to be flown back to Britain today. He is believed to have attempted to explode a bomb on an underground train at Shepherd's Bush station in west London, but was arrested after fleeing to Italy. An extradition warrant was sought by British authorities and eventually granted by an Italian court despite protestations by Hussain's lawyer. He is due to fly back by a military plane this afternoon. [BBC]
