According to Prva TV, the court initially decided to send Haradinaj to Serbia where he would face trial for war crimes.

The broadcaster said it learned that the court then ruled against this "as the consequences of extradition would have been very grave for Haradinaj."

Euronews this morning reported on its website about the original decision and its reversal - but this article was later removed.

Reuters also first reported that Haradinaj would be extradited to Serbia, but corrected the report several minutes later.
