OTTAWA -- Alleged bomber and former University of Ottawa professor Hassan Diab called it a "miscarriage of justice" after the Court of Appeal for Ontario ruled against him Thursday, which could see him sent to France to face questions over a deadly attack more than 30 years ago.

"This is a sad day," said Diab in a statement, adding he was in "great shock" after the appeals court upheld his extradition order.

Diab is currently in jail awaiting another court appearance.
