Albanian police say they have arrested an ethnic Albanian from neighboring Kosovo who is wanted from the United States on human trafficking charges.
A police statement identifies the man as 53-year-old Hektor Kelmendi, alias Deme Nikqi. It says he was arrested Tuesday at the northeastern Morini border crossing upon coming from Kosovo with a Serb passport.
The statement says an international arrest warrant was issued for Kelmendi following the May 2010 charges in a New York court. It says Albanian authorities are completing documentation for his extradition.
