Belgium will extradite five suspects in Eindhoven beating

Five teenagers said to be involved in an attack on a man in Eindhoven last month will be extradited from Belgium to face a court hearing, the Belgian authorities have decided.

The five were part of a group of eight teenagers caught on security camera kicking and punching a man on January 4.

Three of the group are Dutch and turned themselves in last month after the film was shown on a television crime show.

The five Belgian suspects still have the right of appeal against their extradition.
