Hoax bomb suspect Paul Douglas Peters flown to Australia

A man has been extradited to Australia to face charges over an alleged attempt to extort money by locking a teenage woman to a fake bomb.

Paul Douglas Peters, 50, arrived in Sydney on Saturday morning under guard on a flight from the US, where he was arrested in Kentucky in mid-August.

He was charged with kidnapping and other offences.

The charges stem from an alleged ordeal endured by 18-year-old Madeleine Pulver on 3 August.

Duncan Kennedy reports.
