ROME (AP) — A left-wing Italian militant who was convicted of murder three decades ago is heading home to serve a life sentence, after his life as a celebrity fugitive came to an abrupt end with his arrest in Bolivia by a team of Interpol agents.

Cesare Battisti was handed over to Italian custody late Sunday in Santa Cruz de la Sierra, where he was located by Italian intelligence agents after using one of his mobile devices. Italy sent a government aircraft to pick him up, and the plane left late Sunday.

A photo released by the Italian interior ministry showed Battisti sitting in the aircraft with a gray blanket over his lap.

He was due to arrive in Rome on Monday afternoon and be immediately transferred to the capital's main Rebibbia prison.
