A Canadian official says a 29-year-old porn actor accused of videotaping a murder and mailing body parts to the country's top political parties has been arrested in Berlin.

The official confirmed Luka Rocco Magnotta was apprehended Monday. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to announce it.

Berlin prosecutors' spokesman Martin Steltner told The Associated Press a man wanted on an international arrest warrant was arrested in an internet cafe, but he could not confirm his identity.

A Berlin police spokeswoman declined to comment.

Magnotta is wanted by Canadian authorities on first-degree murder and other charges. He is suspected of killing Jun Lin - a 33-year-old Chinese university student he dated - and mailing the victim's body parts to Canadian political parties.
