WARSAW (Reuters) - Poland has received a request to extradite filmmaker Roman Polanski to the United States, where he is wanted over a 1977 child sex crime conviction, state news agency PAP quoted the prosecutor-general's office as saying on Wednesday.

Polanski, who was born to Polish parents but lives in France, has been spending time in the southern Polish city of Krakow, where he is planning to shoot a film.
