Isreali organ-trafficking fugitive nabbed in Rome

Rome, June 7 - Italian police said that a fugitive man charged with organ trafficking and on the run since 2010 was captured at Rome's Leonardo da Vinci airport and on Friday was transferred to a prison in nearby Civitavecchia. Tauber Gedalya, 77, an ex-military officer for the Israeli government, arrived on an Alitalia flight from Boston on Thursday. Border police became suspicious by the man's "nervous behaviour and alterations made to his passport," police said at a press conference on Friday. Police checks showed that Gedalya, found guilty of human organ trafficking by a Brazil court before fleeing in 2010, was being sought by Interpol. Gedalya faces extradition to Brazil.
