Libya reviewing extradition request for Manchester bomber's brother - spokesman

TRIPOLI (Reuters) - Libya’s internationally recognised government is “cooperating to process” an extradition request for the brother of the bomber who killed 22 people in Manchester in May, but no decision has been taken yet, a spokesman said on Thursday.

“An official request has been received through the Libyan ministry of foreign affairs and the Libyan authorities are cooperating to process (the request) in accordance with Libyan legal procedures,” said spokesman Hassan al-Houni.
