    BANGKOK (Sputnik) — Four Russians wanted for serious offences at home have been arrested in Thailand and will be extradited to Russia soon, Thai immigration police chief Nathorn Phrosunthorn said Thursday.

    The police general told reporters in Bangkok all four were international fugitives wanted by Interpol on charges of police assault, battery, organized crime and contract killing.

    Several of the suspects had tied the knot in Thailand and were living with their spouses on marriage visas, Phrosunthorn said at the press briefing.

    Operations to arrest the suspects were conducted in Bangkok and in two provinces in cooperation with the Russian Embassy and law enforcement. The men will be taken back by Russian police officers.
