Thai police arrested Canadian schoolteacher Christopher Paul Neil on Friday, ending a global manhunt that began three years ago with the discovery of hundreds of photos online showing a man having sex with Asian boys. Neil was arrested at a house in the rural northeastern province of Nakhon Ratchasima, which he rented with a Thai transvestite friend whose phone calls police had traced. Paisal said Neil, 32, acknowledged he was the man they had been looking for, but didn't comment on whether he was the man seen having sex with a dozen different boys, aged between six and twelve years, in photos posted on the Internet. Only 10 days earlier, the international police agency Interpol had issued an unprecedented worldwide appeal to identify and apprehend the suspect, whose face had been digitally obscured in the photographs.
