MOSCOW (Reuters) – Britain’s ambassador on Monday submitted an official request to Russia for the extradition of the man suspected of murdering Alexander Litvinenko.

British prosecutors said last week they wanted to bring Russian businessman Andrei Lugovoy before a British court to try him for the murder of Litvinenko, who died on November 23 after being poisoned with polonium 210.

Ambassador Anthony Brenton submitted the request to the Foreign Ministry in Moscow, a spokesman said.

“I can confirm that today the ambassador submitted to the Russian Foreign Ministry papers requesting the extradition of Mr Lugovoy,” a spokesman for the British embassy said by telephone.
