Russia won't extradite murder suspect
by UPI

MOSCOW -- Moscow has officially told London it will not extradite the man charged with killing former KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko, it was reported Thursday.

Russian officials have said they would not comply with the British extradition request for Andrei Lugovoi because the Russian constitution prevents it. Sources told the Interfax news agency Russia has officially notified British officials Lugovoi will not be sent to London to face the charges.

Russian prosecutors have said Lugovoi could stand trial in Russia if the British send compelling evidence against him.

Litvinenko died in England last year after being poisoned with a radioactive agent.
