Johannesburg - Shrien Dewani will be extradited to South Africa to stand trial for the murder of his wife, a UK court ruled on Wednesday.

A Westminister Magistrate’s Court judge said in his ruling that the risk of Shrien Dewani committing suicide if extradited to South Africa have diminished and Dewani would receive medical care there.

Judge Howard Riddle said in his ruling: "The journey to South Africa will be difficult for Dewani but he will manage it."

He said if Dewani is extradited he would not be held in prison. He would either be bailed or admitted to a mental health unit.

Dewani is accused of masterminding the murder of his wife Anni Dewani in November 2010.

Dewani now has 14 days to appeal the court's decision.
