Belgium to extradite Al-Qaeda sympathiser to US
Belgian justice authorities gave the green light Wednesday for a Tunisian Al-Qaeda sympathiser to be extradited to the United States, a justice official said.
US justice authorities issued an extradition request for the former professional footballer Trabelsi over suspicions that he was involved in other major Al-Qaeda backed plots.
The request is based on allegations that he was part of a criminal enterprise aiming to kill US nationals overseas as well as membership of a criminal organisation trying to procure or use weapons of mass destruction.
He was also alleged to be part of a group supplying materials and other resources to "a foreign terrorist organisation".
