A Brit accused of hacking into US military and NASA computers on Friday lost his latest legal bid to avoid extradition to the United States.

Gary McKinnon, who suffers from a form of autism, could spend life in prison if convicted by a US court of gaining access to 97 computers in 2001 and 2002 in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks.
