Could this be an indication that the British (and French) are really getting serious about fighting Islamic terrorism? From the TimesOnline, with thanks to Twostellas:
FRENCH prosecutors got their hands on one of their most wanted terrorist suspects after ten years when Britain extradited Rachid Ramda to Paris last night.
Mr Ramda, 35, who is accused of masterminding a series of bombings on the Paris MÃ©tro in 1995, was flown to Le Bourget airport and handed over to waiting police. He was due to appear in court last night.
The protracted legal battle in Britain over Mr Ramda’s fate had strained relations between the two governments, with security chiefs in Paris accusing Britain of being a haven for Islamic militants….
He is the first terror suspect Britain has handed over since the September 11 attacks, despite pledges by Tony Blair to speed up extraditions.
