Shrien Dewani extradition hearing begins


A man accused of ordering his wife's murder on their honeymoon has arrived at court for an extradition hearing.

South African police want to extradite Shrien Dewani, 31, from Bristol, for his alleged role in the killing.

His bride, Anni, 28, was shot when a taxi the couple were travelling in was hijacked in the Gugulethu township in Cape Town last November.

Mr Dewani, who denies any wrongdoing, is on bail but is being held at a mental health hospital in Bristol.

The three-day extradition hearing is being held at Belmarsh Magistrates' Court in south-east London.
