An autistic man suspected of hacking into US government computer systems is to be extradited from Britain to face trial, a court has ruled.

Lauri Love, 31, who has Asperger’s syndrome, is accused of hacking into the FBI, the US central bank and the country’s missile defence agency.

Mr Love, from Stradishall, Suffolk, has previously said he feared he would die in a US prison if he was extradited.

A judge at Westminster Magistrates’ Court made the extradition ruling.
