A Swiss police guard and her Syrian rapist lover she broke out of jail with have been captured in Italy, after more than a month on the run.
Angela Magdici, 32, opened the cell door for serial rapist Hassan Kiko, 27, during a night shift at Limmattal prison in Zurich, and vanished with him while her colleague was taking a nap.
The couple were arrested early this morning in Romano di Lombardia, a small town close to Milan. Italian police also found the getaway BMW X1 they had used to cross the border.

Kiko, pictured, was jailed for four years for raping a 15-year-old girl in a friend's car
Their arrest comes four days after they released a video, in which Kiko complained about the 'crap food' in prison and Magdici justified her actions by saying she did it 'out of love'.
They had been staying at an apartment block in the town and the same black BMW [bought for Magdici by her former lover] was parked outside.
Swiss police told Blick newspaper an extradition procedure was ongoing.
The pair had been on the run since their escape on February 9.
She had become fascinated with Syria and started reading the Koran before helping her asylum seeker love break out of prison.

Kiko had been serving four years for raping a 15-year-old schoolgirl in a friend's car and the attempted rape and sexual assault of a 19-year-old woman.
In a video posted by they pair last week they taunted the authorities for failing to catch them.
In a separate video, Kiko complained about the food in jail while puffing on a cigarette.
He said: 'This crap food, which I was always given by these crap people.'
He then went on to claim had been abused in jail showing what he said were bruises on his legs and neck, and complaining he had been forced to share a section of the jail with people who are HIV positive.
He then insisted he was innocent and said there was no evidence the rape had ever taken place.
Magdici said: 'What we did was a result of love.'
She added: 'I want to apologise to my family. Everything was so surreptitious but it was not possible to say anything before vanishing from your lives. I am really sorry, and I love you all very much.'
She added: 'Hassan is the love of my life. I have never met such an honourable, warm and sensitive and funny man as him.'
