Kenyan police in Mombasa say they have arrested a man in connection with attacks in India after a five-day hunt.

Abdulkadir Karim Tunda was captured in the Kenyan coastal town in possession of eight fake passports on Thursday.

According to Kenyan police sources he has also been connected to the bombing in 2002 of an Israeli hotel in Kenya and was on the FBI's most wanted list.

The BBC's Odhiambo Joseph says the suspect was airlifted to the capital, Nairobi, in the early hours of Friday.

Our correspondent in Mombasa says the arrest follows a sighting of the suspect in the town of Taveta along the Kenyan and Tanzanian border earlier this week.

Reports in the Indian media have linked Abdulkadir Karim Tunda to the Pakistan-based militant group Lashkar-e-Toiba.

There has been no comment from the Indian authorities on the arrest.
