Libyan Spy Chief is Extradited From Mauritania

Mauritania has handed Libya's former intelligence chief Abdullah al-Senussi over to the Libyan authorities, state media say.

Libya wants to try Mr Senussi for crimes allegedly committed during his time as Col Gaddafi's right-hand man. He is also wanted by France and the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Mauritania previously said Senussi must first face charges of illegal entry.
