One Of The Fugitives On The Run From Netflix's 'World's Most Wanted' Has Already Been Caught

One Of The Fugitives On The Run From Netflix's 'World's Most Wanted' Has Already Been Caught

Last month, fans of Netflix's Unsolved Mysteries read that fresh leads had been rolling in for the show's historic cases in awe.

Now, the streamer's latest true crime show, World's Most Wanted, is seeing real life cases continue to play out off screen once more as one of the featured fugitives has been captured.

The five-part docuseries, which dropped on 5th August, shines a spotlight on some of the world's most high-profile criminals, who have so far succeeded in evading capture.

Each of the five featured criminals have successfully managed to elude the FBI, CIA, MI5 and INTERPOL for decades - all but one as of recently.

Félicien Kabuga, the 85-year-old criminal accused of participating in the Rwandan genocide, was captured on 16th May in Paris after more than 26 years on the run. Kabuga is thought to have used 28 different identities in that time.

French authorities have attributed the coronavirus lockdown to helping id his capture, after he was living in a wealthy French suburb under a false identity.

Kabuga is due to stand trial next year.

World's Most Wanted currently sits at number three in Netflix's most-watched list, having dropped on the streamer last week.

Another case is that of Samantha Lewthwaite, a British woman known as the 'White Widow' because her husband was 7/7 bomber, Germaine Lindsay.

Lewthwaite is accused of causing the deaths of more than 400 people, thanks to her involvement in Somalia-based Islamic militant group, al-Shabaab.
