Nuclear arms suspect extradited
Scales of justice
Dara is accused of ordering the equipment from a German chemist
A man accused of ordering illegal nuclear equipment has been extradited to Germany.

Pakistani national Iqtidar Mahmood Dara was extradited from Heathrow Airport.

The 44-year-old is accused of ordering the equipment from a German chemist with the aim of developing nuclear weapons in Pakistan.

Mr Dara was arrested by the Metropolitan Police on behalf of the German authorities when he entered Britain on 4 April.

It is alleged that, between 14 August 2002 and 24 November 2003, Dara ordered a liquid waste monitor, two detection systems and an alpha-gamma spectrometry system.

His extradition was ordered by Bow Street Magistrates' Court on 8 May and took place after he lost subsequent appeals.
