A British man accused of arranging the slaying of his wife on their honeymoon has arrived under escort in South Africa after his extradition from Britain.

The South African justice ministry said that Shrien Dewani landed in a chartered plane in Cape Town and was taken into police custody.

He is expected to appear in court later in the day.  

Dewani had spent years fighting extradition over the killing of his 28-year-old bride Anni.

She was found shot dead in an abandoned taxi in Cape Town's Gugulethu township in November 2010.  

Dewani is accused of hiring men to kill his wife and make it look like a botched carjacking.

Three men, including the cab's driver and a gunman, have been convicted for the murder.

Dewani denies wrongdoing.
