Dutch minister approves transfer of bomb suspect to US

AMSTERDAM - The Netherlands' justice minister has approved the transfer of a Dutch citizen to the United States to face charges of plotting suicide attacks against American troops in Afghanistan, a spokeswoman said on Friday.
She could not say when the suspect, known as Sabir K, will be transferred to the United States where a warrant for his arrest on terrorism charges was issued in June 2011.
In April, the Netherlands' highest court upheld an appeals court decision and approved the extradition of Sabir K to the United States.
