Newlywed bailed in honeymoon case

Shrien Dewani, the British newlywed accused of paying to have his bride Anni killed on their South African honeymoon, has been granted £250,000 bail.

During an appearance at City of Westminster Magistrates’ Court on an extradition warrant, Dewani’s legal team was told they must produce the surety within two hours and he would be held until then.

Dewani, whose wife was shot dead last month as they visited a township, was arrested on Tuesday night on suspicion of conspiring to murder her.

The 30-year-old businessman was accused of ordering her death by taxi driver Zola Tongo as Tongo was sentenced for his part in the killing in a South African court on Tuesday.
