Chilean Guerrilla Caught

(Hamburg, Germany)
A French woman suspected of being a member of a now-defunct left-wing guerrilla group in Chile has been arrested in Germany.

Marie Emmanuelle Verhoeven was captured while trying to board a flight from Hamburg to Dubai late Saturday.

A police statement says the 54-year-old has been wanted since 1996 on an international arrest warrant for murder, forming a terrorist organization and grievous bodily harm resulting in death.

Verhoeven allegedly was a member of the Manuel Rodriguez Patriotic Front set up in the 1980s to fight the 1973-90 dictatorship of Gen. Augusto Pinochet.
It took almost two decades to get her.
