Hungarian police have taken into custody a Norwegian citizen who is wanted by the Norwegian authorities for murder, a police spokesperson said on Friday.

The arrest of the 20 year-old took place at the Hungary-Serbia border motorway crossing as the suspect left the country on a bus registered to North Macedonia, the spokesperson for the Csongrád County police headquarters said. The Norwegian authorities had issued a European arrest warrant for the suspect.

A decision on extraditing the man to Norway will be made later, the spokesperson said.
