MIAMI - Former media mogul Conrad Black returned to prison on Tuesday in Florida to finish serving a sentence for fraud and obstruction of justice, a US Bureau of Prisons spokesman said.

Black, who turned 67 in August, was booked in to the Federal Correctional Institution in Miami, a low-security facility, shortly after 1 p.m. EDT (1400 GMT), bureau spokesman Chris Burke told Reuters from Washington.

A US judge in June re-sentenced Black, a Canadian-born British citizen and member of Britain's House of Lords, to another 13 months in prison on top of the 29 months he had already served for his 2007 conviction.

He had been expected to serve out his time at the Coleman Federal Correctional Complex near Orlando, Florida, where he was held previously. It was not immediately clear why he was instead assigned to the Miami facility, where former Panamanian strongman Manuel Noriega was imprisoned for drug smuggling and money laundering.
