ATHENS (Reuters) - Greece will swiftly extradite a 33-year-old Algerian man who may be linked to a foiled Islamist militant plot to attack police in Belgium, court officials said on Tuesday, after Brussels issued an arrest warrant.

The man appeared before a Greek prosecutor on Tuesday but did not contest the extradition request. Police and court officials said he would be transferred to Belgium "immediately", without providing further details.
