Dutch Court Won’t Extradite Terror Suspect to US Over Torture Concerns

A Dutch court has blocked the extradition of a terrorism suspect to the United States amid concern about American collusion in his torture.

The 26-year-old man, known only as Sabir K, is accused of taking part in attacks on US forces in Afghanistan.

He says he was tortured in Pakistan after his arrest there in 2010, and that the Americans knew about it.

The judge denied the extradition request, saying the degree of US involvement was "unclear".
