KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) -- Malaysia has extradited a former Goldman Sachs banker to the United States for 10 months to face criminal charges linked to a multibillion-dollar scandal at state fund 1MDB, its attorney general said on Monday.

Malaysian Roger Ng has been detained in Kuala Lumpur since Nov. 1, after the U.S. Department of Justice announced charges against him for allegedly laundering funds diverted from the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) fund.
