Netherlands hands extremist suspect to Spain

The Netherlands extradited Pakistani national Akeel Abassi to Spain, where he faces allegations of belonging to an extremist Islamic group. Abassi fled spain in January following the dismantling of a group of militants in Barcelona. Authorities say the man traveled from Spain to Germany to carry out a suicide attack, but left for Netherlands without carrying out such actions. Abassi is one of eleven Islamists charged by Spain’s High Court in June.
