MILAN, Jan 13: Italian former leftist guerrilla Cesare Battisti, who has been on the run for almost four decades after being jailed for murder, has been arrested in Bolivia and is expected to be extradited to Italy, officials said on Sunday.
"He will soon arrive in Brazil and from here will be transferred to Italy to serve a life sentence," Filipe G. Martins, a senior aide on international affairs to Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, tweeted.
A plane carrying Italian police and intelligence officers is already on its way to South America, Italy's Interior Ministry said on Sunday.     -Reuters
