U.K. boy with tumor sparks cruelty claim over extradition

LONDON (AP) — The grandmother of a British boy with a severe brain tumor has accused U.K. authorities of cruelty for seeking an arrest warrant and pursuing the family abroad after his parents removed him from a British hospital against medical advice.

Patricia King told the BBC on Monday it was an "absolute disgrace" that her son and daughter-in-law were accused of child neglect after they took Ashya King, 5, from Southampton General Hospital last week. The family says U.K. authorities had refused to give Ashya the kind of treatment he needed.
