Foreign ‘fugitive’ arrested at airport after escape attempt

A foreign man of unknown identity has been arrested after he tried to escape from the custody of security at the Katunayake airport, police said.

The middle-aged man holding a Seychelles passport, alleged to be a fake, had been in transit to France via Abu Dhabi.

Officials who became suspicious of him had taken him in for questioning this  Monday morning (10).

As he had been under interrogation in a room, the man had run out and entered the departure lounge, where he climbed onto a roof.

After much effort, airport security, with the support of the air force and police, managed to capture him.

Authorities believe him to be a fugitive.
