The British government has formally requested the extradition of Anne Sacoolas, whose husband was an intelligence officer at a British military base, from the U.S., AP writes.
The intrigue: The State Department calls the request "highly inappropriate," because she had diplomatic immunity at the time of the crash
Context: Sacoolas' car collided with 19-year-old Harry Dunn's motorbike and killed him in August. She has already been charged by the U.K. government with "causing death by dangerous driving," and has invoked immunity under the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations. "British prosecutors, however, maintain that immunity does not apply to dependants of consular officials based outside London," the AP writes.
