Eindhoven attack extradition decision postponed

A decision on whether five youths wanted in connection with an attack in Eindhoven can be extradited from Belgium was postponed on Tuesday afternoon.

Five youths aged 17 to 19 living in and around the Belgian border town of Turnhout are suspected of involvement in an unprovoked attack on a 22-year-old man in Eindhoven on January 4.

The Belgian judge said after considering the case, he decided to make his decision next week Tuesday.

The youths were part of a gang of eight who hit and kicked their victim, who suffered severe concussion and injuries to his face. The gang was caught on security cameras.

The other three youths live in the Netherlands and have already reported to local police. Two of them have been remanded in custody.
