Albania extradites Kosovar man to US

Albanian police say they have extradited to the United States a Kosovo Albanian man accused of illegal human trafficking.

Hektor Kelmendi, alias Deme Nikqi, 53, is wanted by a New York court on charges of assisting people to enter the United States illegally.

Kelmendi was arrested in April as he crossed into Albania from Kosovo, based on an international arrest warrant.

Authorities said that Kelmendi was extradited Friday.
