An Iraqi fugitive wanted internationally for murder has been arrested on Hungary’s southern border, the Bács-Kiskun County police department said on the website on Monday.

The 22-year-old man was apprehended by Hungarian police last Friday evening as he was trying to climb the fence on the southern border.

As he was being processed, police discovered that the French authorities had issued an international warrant for his arrest for murder. The suspect wanted to flee Hungary by climbing over the border fence, police said.

Investigators also seized the car driven by the suspect, which had a French licence plate, the statement said.
