Interpol: Islamic extremist rebel to be extradited to Uganda

The head of Interpol in Uganda says an Islamic extremist leader who was arrested in Tanzania will be extradited to Uganda after Tanzanian authorities agreed to co-operate.

Asan Kasingye told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Jamil Mukulu appeared on Friday in a Dar es Salaam court, charged with multiple counts of murder, after his extradition papers were filed.

Mukulu is the Ugandan leader of the Allied Democratic Forces, or ADF, an armed group that originated in Uganda but which now operates in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.

The ADF is accused of carrying out massacres in Uganda as well as in parts of eastern DRC, including savage killings earlier this month near the town of Beni in DRC North Kivu province.
