Diplomatic war?

I’ve posted before about the strange case of Mr Bat Khurts, former head of the Mongolian counter-terrorism agency, who is at the moment  an unwilling guest of Her Majesty in Wandsworth prison.  It’s a highly bizarre tale (one of those that could make a mere crime writer despair of keeping up with real life), and I remain intrigued that, with the exception of The Independent newspaper and (belatedly) the BBC, it’s received virtually no coverage in the British media.  It appears that a decision will now be made on 3 February about whether Mr Khurts will be extradited to Germany, so perhaps we’ll learn more then.  Or perhaps not.  It’s also intriguing that, while The Independent suggests that Mongolia has virtually declared ‘diplomatic war’ on Britain, the London Stock Exchange doesn’t seem to have noticed.
