An American-born convicted murderer arrested in Portugal has been ordered to stay at home with an electronic tag while he fights extradition to the US.

68-year-old George Wright escaped from an American jail 40 years ago and allegedly hijacked a plane to flee the country.

He later became a Portuguese citizen and had a family, and argues he should serve his sentence in Portugal.
