British soldier with mental disorder extradited to US


A British soldier with post-traumatic stress disorder said he had been disowned by the British government as he was extradited to the United States on Thursday.

David McIntyre, 43, has been fighting his removal to the US, where he is wanted on fraud charges, but on Thursday his lawyers said he was being extradited and was expected to arrive on 4 July, where he faces detention in a US federal prison.

US authorities want McIntyre, from Hyde, Greater Manchester, to stand trial on eight charges of fraud relating to a contract between Quantum Risk, the security firm he ran in Baghdad in 2009, and the US Institute of Peace, which describes itself as an American "national security institution" devoted to preventing conflicts abroad.
