French Polynesian police have arrested a Hungarian fugitive following a routine check of a yacht on Huahine.

The 34-year-old man was wanted in Europe after escaping from jail where he was serving a five-year term for robbery.

He has been taken to Tahiti's prison while awaiting extradition.

The man had reportedly been sailing in the Pacific for months.
