A MOROC­CAN il­le­gal im­mi­grant who fled Spain in 2012 af­ter mur­der­ing an OAP was ar­rested – when he tried to sneak BACK into the coun­try il­le­gally.

The 34- year- old was found hid­ing on a boat car­ry­ing mi­grants that was in­ter­cepted by coast­guards near Bar­bate, in the Cadiz prov­ince of An­dalu­cia in south­ern Spain.

Po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tions showed he was car­ry­ing false doc­u­ments.

He is wanted for the mur­der of an el­derly man who he stran­gled to death in Madrid in 2012 af­ter rob­bing him of money and jewellery.

Au­thor­i­ties be­lieve he fled back to Morocco af­ter the crime but wanted to re­turn to Spain and thought he would go un­de­tected in a boat car­ry­ing mi­grants.
