Police: Brazil deports priest wanted in Ireland

Police: Brazil deports priest wanted in Ireland

Irish authorities say a priest wanted in their country over sex crimes allegations has been deported from Brazil to the United Kingdom and is being extradited to Ireland.
Ireland's Justice Department said Thursday that the Rev. Peter Kennedy was in British custody but declined to give any further details.
A spokesman for Ireland's national police force says the 73-year-old priest was "met by U.K. officers when he got off the plane" and that he could be sent to Ireland within days depending on the outcome of any extradition proceedings.
It wasn't immediately clear why Kennedy was deported to Britain _ although he could have been sent to the U.K. if he were traveling on a British passport.
