A Dutch-Pakistani man under suspicion for planning an attack against US military personnel in Afghanistan has lost an extradition appeal to the US. The 25 year old was arrested in 2011 in Pakistan and sent to the Netherlands, and a Rotterdam court found in favour of the extradition. The latest appeal was to the supreme court: a final decision on extradition will be taken by the Netherlands’ justice minister. The US accuses him of working with al-Qaeda in planning the attacks.
