Britain's High Court on Friday temporarily halted the extradition of businessman Shrien Dewani to South Africa, where he is wanted in connection with the murder of his wife on their honeymoon in 2010.

The ruling was made on mental health grounds, after Dewani's lawyers said the 31-year-old was suffering from severe post-traumatic stress disorder and depression, and his life could be at risk if he were extradited.
