Man on run for 17 years found in cave

46

Chinese police say they have tracked down a fugitive criminal after 17 years, finding his cave hideout with the assistance of a drone.

In a post on their WeChat account, local police in the south-western province of Yunnan identified the man as Moujiang Song.

Back in March 2002, Song escaped a prison camp in neighbouring Sichuan province, Yongshan police explained.

The 63-year-old had been prosecuted for the abduction and trafficking of women and children.
