ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Montreal Police Commander Ian Lafreniere confirmed that Canadian Luka Rocco Magnotta, suspected of murdering and dismembering a Chinese student in Montreal, was arrested in an Internet cafe in Berlin on Monday. Interpol issued an arrest warrant last week for Magnotta, who faces first degree murder charges over the videotaped death of the student, whose body parts were mailed to political parties in the Canadian capital Ottawa. He is believed to have entered France on May 26, and French police had been investigating thousands of reported sightings. Magnotta was found in a cafe on Karl Marx Strasse, a busy shopping street running through the multi-cultural south-Berlin district, which is home to numerous Turkish and Lebanese cafes and snack bars. German television quoted the owner of the cafe as saying that Magnotta had spent an hour surfing the internet before police entered and took him into custody.
