A Tunisian appeals court has ruled that Al-Baghdadi Ali al-Mahmoudi, prime minister under former Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi, will be extradited to Libya to be tried.

Al-Mahmoudi's lawyer told Reuters news agency that "it's an unfair decision, a political decision."

He said that if any harm comes to him in Libya, the Tunisian justice system will be a party to that.

Al-Mahmoudi fled to Tunisia from Libya during the uprising that eventually toppled Qaddafi.
