The international manhunt for the Canadian "psycho killer" wanted for the gruesome murder and dismemberment of his lover ended in the German capital, Berlin, yesterday when he was arrested in a dramatic police raid on an internet café.

Luka Rocco Magnotta, a 29-year-old gay pornographic film actor and model, was seized in the café on the Karl-Marx-Strasse in the working-class Neukölln district of the city after catching an overnight bus from Paris on Friday. The owner recognised him and tipped off the police.

Magnotta is suspected of killing his lover, Jun Lin, a 33-year-old Chinese student, in a gruesome murder carried out in a Montreal apartment.

He is thought to have dismembered his lover's body and posted body parts to political parties in Canada. Some reports said Magnotta had also eaten parts of his victim's corpse.

Police said a video posted online, in which a man is seen using an ice pick to kill another man, is believed to be footage of Jun Lin's murder. The killer's motive is believed to have been jealousy.

The Berlin newspaper BZ quoted police as saying that Magnotta was captured during a raid on the Neukölln internet café as he was sitting at a computer, apparently looking at online news reports about himself. The owner of the café had earlier identified him and phoned the police, the newspaper said.
