Extradition for Kriss case trio
Kriss Donald
Kriss Donald was abducted near his home in Glasgow
Three men wanted in connection with the murder of Glasgow teenager Kriss Donald have agreed to be extradited from Pakistan to face trial in the UK.

The men, who were detained in July, may be sent to the UK next month but their trial is not expected for some time.

There is no formal extradition treaty between Pakistan and Britain so special measures had to be taken.

Kriss Donald, 15, was abducted near his Pollokshields home last March and his body found the next day in Glasgow.

Warrants for the arrest of the three men were issued by Strathclyde police last year.

Police escort

Early in July, Zeeshan Shahid and Mohammed Mustaq were detained by Pakistani police in a village near Faisalabad in central Pakistan.

Imran Shaid was arrested a few days later in the city of Lahore.

At an earlier hearing in Islamabad one of the men opposed extradition but on Thursday all three suspects agreed to be sent to Britain.

They will be escorted from Pakistan by officers from Strathclyde Police.
