Mongolian spymaster arrested in Britain


A Mongolian spymaster who says he was lured to Britain on false pretenses is due in court to fight extradition on kidnapping allegations.
Bat Khurts, head of Mongolia's counterterrorism agency, was arrested at Heathrow Airport in September. He claims he was invited to London for security talks, only to be detained.
Khurts is wanted over the kidnapping of a Mongolian man suspected of murdering a government official there a decade ago. The suspect was abducted in France in 2003, driven to Germany and flown back to Mongolia, where he later died.
Khurts' lawyers accuse Britain of ''duplicitously luring'' him to his arrest.
Britain says it had to arrest Khurts because Germany had issued a warrant.
Khurts is due at City of Westminster Magistrates' Court on Wednesday.
