Malaysia court: Give Iranian bomb suspect to Thais
A Malaysian court says an Iranian man accused of plotting to attack Israeli targets in Bangkok must be extradited to Thailand.
Masoud Sedaghatzadeh wants to appeal the decision and is not expected to be immediately deported.
Sedaghatzadeh was arrested at a Malaysian airport soon after an apparently accidental explosion rocked a Bangkok neighborhood in February.
Bombs were found at the house were the explosion occurred, and Thai police say Sedaghatzadeh and two other Iranian men now in Thai custody had been seen leaving the house.
A Kuala Lumpur court on Monday ruled in favor of the Malaysian government's bid to deport Sedaghatzadeh to the Thai capital.
He insists he visited Thailand for a vacation and came to Malaysia for business.
