Mexican police say they have captured one of the FBI's top 10 most wanted fugitives, sought on charges of murder, rape and kidnapping.

Joe Luis Saenz, a US national, was held in the western city of Guadalajara.

The 37-year-old is alleged to have shot dead two rival gang members in Los Angeles in 1998 and later that year raped and murdered his ex-girlfriend.

The FBI had been offering up to $100,000 (£62,400) for information leading to his arrest.

Born in California, Mr Saenz also suspected of murdering a fourth victim in Los Angeles County in 2008.

He is believed to have been working for a Mexican drug cartel and had a number of aliases.
