ISLAMABAD - A Pakistani terrorism suspect has appeared in court 18 months after his extradition from South Africa and is being held in connection with the 2005 London bombings.

Khalid Mehmood Rashid, 25, appeared in the high court in Islamabad for the first time last week and his detention was extended by three months, his lawyer Hashmat Habib said.

"There is no documented charge against him, but I understand he is wanted in connection with the July72005 attacks in Britain.

"When he was arrested in South Africa for overstaying his visa, a special plane was sent to bring him back to Pakistan," Habib said. - Sapa-AFP
