Kazakh cuts off penis to avoid extradition
A Kazakh man cut off his penis at Madrid's Barajas airport in order to avoid being extradited home and was hospitalised in serious condition, Spanish media reported.
The 52-year-old man had finished serving a five-year prison sentence in Spain for a violent crime and was to be extradited back to Kazakhstan overnight Monday.
Despite being escorted by several police officers, at Barajas airport the man was able to slip a knife out of his clothing and cut off his penis.
The man was admitted to a Madrid hospital and was still in a serious condition on Friday, Spanish media said.
