Qatar extradites Egyptian suspect

Qatar has extradited to Egypt an Egyptian suspected of financing attacks on tourists in Cairo last year, Egyptian security officials have said.

    The suspect is linked to several attacks in Cairo

    The man was handed to Egyptian authorities on Friday.

    He was one of 14 people referred for trial by the public prosecutor this week for involvement in the two bombings and a shooting in April last year.

    The first bombing on 7 April in a Cairo bazaar popular with tourists killed the bomber, two French people and an American.

    On 30 April a bomber from the same group wounded tourists near Cairo's Egyptian museum while his sister and wife opened fire on a tourist bus in the south of the city.

    All three attackers died.

    The public prosecutor said on Thursday the 14 people to stand trial had formed a group which considered the Egyptian ruler an infidel.
