U.S. offer swap: Aid for ‘Merchant of Death’
Washington claims Russia is hampering his extradition- he's wanted in the U.S. on charges of terrorism. The suspected arms smuggler is accused of supplying weapons to the Revolutionary Armed forces of Columbia, the Taliban, Al Qaeda and a variety of African warlords.
He was detained in Bangkok in March this year. Two hearings into his extradition have been held, but with no result.
