Switzerland Extradites First FIFA Official To The US
Swiss authorities say an unidentified FIFA official, one of seven arrested in May, has been extradited to the U.S.
The first of seven FIFA officials has been extradited to the U.S. to face corruption charges.
The official was escorted from Zurich, Switzerland to New York by a three-man U.S. police escort on Wednesday according to the Swiss government.

Webb is accused of accepting millions of dollars in bribes in exchange for marketing rights.
The U.S. Department of Justice ordered the arrest of the seven FIFA officials back in May.
"The 47-count indictment against these individuals includes charges of racketering, wire fraud and money laundering conspiracies spanning two decades," U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced.
Reports indicated last week that Webb had agreed to be extradited to the U.S. The six other FIFA officials arrested with him are still fighting extradition from Switzerland.
