Thailand to Extradite Hacker Wanted by the FBI

An Algerian computer hacker wanted by the FBI for allegedly stealing millions of dollars from American banks to fund a lavish lifestyle has been arrested in Bangkok, Thai police said Monday.

Hamza Bendelladj, 24, appeared unruffled by his looming extradition to the United States as he was paraded before the media in handcuffs with a beaming smile.

The FBI has been tracing the computer science graduate for three years after he began hacking into US banks at the age of 20, Phanu said.

Bendelladj was detained at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi airport on Sunday after arriving from Malaysia for a connecting flight to Cairo.
