Fermin Vila Michelena extradited from Northern Ireland to Spain

A 44-year-old Spanish man has been extradited from Northern Ireland to Spain to stand trial for a number of terrorist offences.

Fermin Vila Michelena was detained by the PSNI on a European Arrest Warrant in June 2010.

The charges relate to separate killings of a military general and police officer in Madrid 11 years ago.

He is also wanted over a car bomb attack on a bank in the Spanish capital in 2001 that injured 18 people.

Earlier this month, he abandoned a legal bid to avoid his extradition.
