News Summary: UK blocks extradition in hack case


BLOCKED: Britain has blocked a U.S. request to extradite Gary McKinnon, who was accused of breaching military and NASA networks.

REASONING: The U.K. government ruled he was unfit to face charges there. Medical experts had concluded he was seriously depressed and that there was "a high risk of him ending his life."

WHAT NEXT: British prosecutors will now decide if he should face charges in the U.K.
