'Sense of injustice' in Tappin extradition case

A British man accused of exporting parts for Iranian missiles has made his first appearance in a US court.

Retired businessman Christopher Tappin, 65, was remanded in custody until Friday, when his lawyer said he would vigorously pursue the case for bail.

He was extradited last week after a battle through the British courts and denies the allegations.

Speaking to the BBC, his son Neil Tappin said his family were let down by the extradition system and felt motivated by a sense of injustice.
