Postcard from Guantanamo

Bad news for hacker Gary McKinnon, accused of breaking into Pentagon computers . He was told yesterday that he could be handed over to face a trial in the United States.

McKinnon, a self-confessed "40-year-old computer nerd" from Wood Green, north London, will have his case considered by the home secretary, John Reid, after Bow Street magistrates court recommended that an extradition request by the US government be granted.
