“Spooks bugged phones to nail jailbreak ‘spy'” is the lead in the Scottish Mail on Sunday. According to its exclusive story, Daniel Khalife was arrested after MI5, MI6 and anti-terror police combined forces to track him down. The paper, citing security sources, reports that “intercepted communications” initially led officers to a house in Richmond, where they “missed him, possibly by minutes”, before Mr Khalife was ultimately arrested on Saturday.
