Swede suspected of Copenhagen blast to be extradited to Denmark

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - A man detained in Sweden on suspicion of being behind an explosion near a Danish government agency is to be handed over to Denmark, Swedish radio reported.

The Malmo district court on Friday formally detained the 22-year-old Swede after Swedish police arrested him on Tuesday at the request of Denmark, the public broadcaster said.

Him and another man are suspected of having detonated a bomb outside the Danish Tax Agency on Aug. 7 that injured one person and damaged the front of the building.

The court and the prosecutor were not immediately available for comment.

The 22-year-old will remain in Swedish custody pending a possible appeal against extradition, the radio reported.
