Venezuela to extradite Lebanese drug smuggler to Belgium

Venezuela's highest court has approved a request from Belgium to extradite a Lebanese man convicted on drug trafficking and money laundering charges. The Supreme Court on Wednesday said Joseph Gerges El Chabab would soon be handed over to Belgium. A court there convicted him in 2006 of smuggling several shipments of cocaine into the European nation. El Chabab was collared by Venezuelan police in June.
