An Austrian court has halted the extradition of Dmitry Firtash from Austria to the US, while it hears an application to reconsider its original extradition order. Mr Firtash is a Ukrainian billionaire linked to President Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort, and is wanted by the US on bribery charges relating to titanium deals in India.

His lawyer told a federal Court in Chicago that it was unlikely Firtash would be extradited “in the immediate future”, having previously expected him to be extradited before the end of 2017.
