UK to extradite 'miracle baby' pastor to Kenya

British authorities say they are preparing to extradite to Kenya a self-styled archbishop who claimed to help infertile couples produce "miracle babies."

Gilbert Deya faces charges in Kenya of abducting five children from a hospital.

Britain's Home Office said Wednesday that Deya has exhausted all appeals and will be deported.

Deya's wife Mary and two other women were convicted in Kenya four years ago on a charge of abducting a child from a hospital in 2004.

Kenyan police have said the preacher blessed infertile women and sent them to Kenya, purportedly to give birth. The women claimed to have delivered babies after as little as two months and then applied to British authorities to take the children to London.
