ROME (Reuters) -Italy will hold an extradition hearing on Aug. 17 for a man Britain believes was one of the bombers involved in a failed attack on London last month, a legal source said on Thursday.

Hamdi Issac, also known as Osman Hussein, was seized in Rome last week after fleeing London. He has told Italian magistrates that he took part in the failed July 21 attacks, but that he did not intend to kill and has indicated he will fight extradition.

The British embassy said if all appeals were lodged, and all extensions taken, the extradition process should be completed by early December, but the process may be complicated if Italian magistrates decide to prosecute Issac.
