Canada judge denies bail for man U.S. wants over Yahoo hack

TORONTO, April 11 (Reuters) - A Canadian judge on Tuesday denied bail to Karim Baratov, whom the United States wants to extradite to face charges of involvement in a massive hack of Yahoo email accounts, his lawyer said.

Prosecutors had argued the 22-year-old Canadian citizen posed a flight risk. The United States says Baratov worked with Russian intelligence agents who paid him to break into at least 80 email accounts, including those of specific targets with non-Yahoo accounts.
