In the US, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) announced that 63-year-old Greg Lawson, who fled during his 1991 trial for attempted murder, was captured in Mexico.

Lawson was brought to the US and arrested after his capture.

Lawson escaped in 1991 as he was returning to a Louisiana courtroom for the jury's verdict on his attempted murder conviction.

Lawson's capture was considered a "significant achievement" by state authorities and the FBI.

Lawson is expected to stand trial for murder.
