Kentucky woman accused of Bosnia war crimes awaits extradition decision

No decision was made Monday during an extradition hearing for a Croation woman facing charges of murder and torture stemming from the unraveling of Yugoslavia in the 1990s. More than three hours of testimony and arguments were heard Monday in U.S. District Court in Lexington in the case of Azra Basic. The U.S. government wants to return Basic, 52, to Bosnia to face charges. Basic's attorney, Patrick Nash, is fighting the extradition.
