Lebanon to extradite terror suspect to Australia

Lebanon has agreed to deport an Arab Australian who is wanted for an attack on a Sydney police station and hopes that in return Australia will extradite a Lebanese terror suspect, Lebanese officials said Monday. There is no extradition treaty between Lebanon and Australia, but the two sides are studying the legal procedures to hand over Saleh Jamal, a Jordanian-born Australian, to Australia, a government official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to release the information. Australian media have forecast the deportation could take place later this month.
