Eritrean migrant smuggling suspect extradited to Italy

MILAN- Italian police say Sudan has extradited a man suspected of being one of the masterminds of a migrant-smuggling network bringing people from sub-Saharan Africa via Libya to Europe. The extradition is the first time that a suspected trafficking boss has been detained in Italy. Police said Wednesday that Mered Yehdego Medhane arrived in Italy overnight, culminating an international investigation that identified him last year as a principal suspect.
