  • Norbert Feher, known as 'Igor the Russian', is accused of killing two Guardia Civil and a farmworker in Aragón

A 36-year-old former Serbian solider was arrested late last week after a series of violent attacks in Teruel province, Aragón.

Following an armed attack in a rural area earlier this month, the Guardia Civil had been carrying out extra searches in the province. On Thursday last week two officers were shot at close range and a farmhand who had been helping the searches was found close by, also fatally wounded. Next morning, Norbert Feher was found sleeping by a road and arrested on suspicion of the crimes.

He carries the nickname 'Igor the Russian' and has been the subject of an arrest warrant since last July after violent incidents in Italy. In September this year Italian police asked Spain to check Mijas and Puerto Banús where it was rumoured he was hiding, but he was not found. He was described as extremely dangerous and violent.
