A Spanish man convicted for the 1977 killing of five leftist lawyers in a Madrid trade union office has been taken into custody in Brazil’s biggest city.

The head of the federal police in São Paulo, Disney Rosseti, said Carlos García Juliá was arrested Thursday as he was walking down a street in a middle-class neighborhood.

Rosseti said Spain is expected to request the extradition of García Juliá, who is being held in a cell in São Paulo. The request must be made within the next 90 days.

García Juliá was among those convicted of the 24 January 1977 attack by gunmen linked to far-right organizations against a legal office working for labor unions near the Atocha train station in central Madrid.
