An Italian court Wednesday approved the extradition of London bombings suspect Hamdi Issac to Britain, where he will be questioned for his alleged role in the failed July 21 attacks on the transit system.

Judge Domenico Massimo Miceli said Issac would be extradited to Britain within 35 days, allowing time for Italian authorities to finish their investigations.

Issac, a British citizen also known as Osman Hussain, is being held in Rome on international terrorism charges following his July 29 arrest.

The July 21 attacks came two weeks after four suicide bombers killed 52 people on the subway and a double-decker bus.
