Czechs officially ask Israel to extradite man over Prague grenade attack

The Czech Republic has officially asked Israel to extradite an Israeli citizen wanted in connection with a grenade attack on a casino owner in Prague at the beginning of August. An Israeli court will now decide whether to extradite the man, who is 27 and originally from the former Soviet Union. Eighteen people, mostly foreign tourists, were injured in the attack, which was believed to be part of a feud between Israeli crime gangs.
