Terror suspect will be extradited to Spain

BRUSSELS-[From Expatica]Belgium is to extradite a Moroccan man accused of being linked to the Madrid bomb attack in March last year.

Youssef Belhadj, 28, was first arrested by the Belgian authorities on 20 March 2004 but released three months later due to a lack of evidence.

He was arrested again in Brussels on 1 February 2005.

A court in Brussels gave the final agreement to his extradition, after his appeal failed.

Belhadj stands accused of being an Al Qaeda spokesman and of belonging to a Moroccan militant Islamic group.
