The man suspected of murdering Albanian scaffolder Xhem Krasniqi in Hove last month has been arrested by police in the Italian city of Milan.

Edmund Nela, 31, was arrested earlier today (Friday 14 June).

Sussex Police said: “A 31-year-old man wanted in connection to the murder of Xhem Krasniqi has been arrested in Milan.

“The man, who is unemployed and of no fixed address, was arrested by local police on the direction of the Surrey and Sussex Major Crime Team.”

Nela was held on suspicion of murder, two attempted murders and having a firearm.

His arrest follows the fatal shooting of Mr Krasniqi with a pistol in Church Road, Hove, on Saturday 18 May. Shots were also fired at Mr Krasniqi’s brother and nephew.

He will be extradited to Britain.
