Terror suspect finally in French hands

Text size Aa Aa

The French government is promising justice will be done following the extradition of an Algerian man from the UK on charges of blowing up a Paris metro station 10 years ago.

Concealed amid flanks of French police, Rachid Ramda arrived at Paris’ Le Bourget airport last night. His extradition ends a lengthy legal battle that soured relations between Britain and France. The charges against Ramda concern a series of attacks on Paris metro stations in 1995 which killed 10 people and injured nearly two hundred and fifty. The bombings were France’s worst since the Second World War. Two other Algerians are already serving life sentences for their involvement in the attacks.
