A Tunisian appeals court ruled on Tuesday that Al-Baghdadi Ali al-Mahmoudi, prime minister under former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, will be extradited to Libya to be tried by the country's new leaders, al-Mahmoudi's lawyer told Reuters.

The judge decided to extradite him to Libya, said the lawyer, Mabrouk Korchid. It's an unfair decision, a political decision. If any harm comes to him in Libya, the Tunisian justice system will be a party to that.
