Gary McKinnon extradition to US blocked
The United Kingdom has blocked the extradition of an English computer hacker to the United States, ending his decade-long campaign to avoid trial there over allegations he broke into sensitive military and NASA computer networks. British Interior Secretary Theresa May on Tuesday told the House of Commons that she had refused the US request to send Gary McKinnon to face charges over an electronic rampage between 2001 and 2002. Al Jazeera's Laurence Lee has more details.
