Sudan extradites kingpin of migrant smugglers to Italy

An Eritrean dubbed “the general”, suspected of controlling a migrant-trafficking network responsible for shipping thousands of people to Europe and sending some to a watery grave, has been extradited to Italy. 

Medhanie Yehdego Mered, 35, who had been on a wanted list since 2015 for international people smuggling, was arrested in the Sudanese capital Khartoum and flown to Italy late Monday. He is “the accused ringleader of one of the four largest criminal migrant trafficking organisations”, the Sudanese interior ministry said in a joint statement with the country’s British and Italian embassies.
