MIAMI (AP) - A U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement effort to track down foreign fugitives has led to three captures in South Florida.
ICE officials say the arrests include a Honduran man sought for the slaying of a former government minister and a man wanted for murder in the Dominican Republic. A third arrest involved a Honduran allegedly involved in firearms and explosives crimes.
The arrests were part of an ICE initiative with the Interpol organization to find fugitives believed living in the U.S. The three South Florida cases were among 20 arrests nationwide, eight of them for murders.
Those arrested will be returned to face charges in their home countries.
The so-called "Operation Far Away" will continue until Oct. 31.
