Canadian court extradites accused Paris bomber

6th June 2011, Comments 0 comments

A Canadian court ruled Monday to extradite accused Paris synagogue bomber Hassan Diab to France to face prosecution, but warned the government's case was "weak" and unlikely to result in a conviction.

French prosecutors want Hassan Diab to face charges of murder, attempted murder and willful destruction of property. The the Canadian-Lebanese national's lawyer indicated in court that he would appeal the ruling.

If convicted of the bombing, he could face life in prison.
