Viktor Bout’s extradition to the U.S. delayed — again

AP has the story: Viktor Bout extradition stalled by Thai ruling:

A Thai court has rejected a request to drop a second set of charges against alleged Russian arms smuggler Viktor Bout, a decision that stalls his long-awaited extradition to the U.S.
