The international manhunt for gay porn star cannibal killer, Luka Rocco Magnotta, has ended with his arrest in the German capital Berlin.

29-year-old Magnotta was seized in an Internet cafe on the Karl-Marx-Strasse in the working class Neukoelln district of the city after catching an overnight bus from Paris on Friday.

Neukoelln is also the venue for numerous gay bars and sordid sex joints frequented by tourists and seedy locals.

Police sources say the cafe was raided at shortly after midday. Magnotta was online when armed officers brandishing their weapons pinned him to the floor and handcuffed him.

The arrest brought to an end an international trawl spanning thousands of miles and hundreds of police officers across two continents.

Magnotta, branded the ‘Canadian Psycho’, is wanted for the gruesome videotaped murder and dismemberment of a student in Montreal.

He fled to France where his mobile telephone calls gave him away to police on his trail.

Witnesses said they saw Magnotta getting on the bus at the Bagnolet international bus station in the eastern suburbs of the French capital on Friday night.

The Eurolines bus company said they had assisted police in handing over bus station CCTV footage and paperwork on passengers.

The next step will probably be an extradition hearing in a German court.
