Officials said 122 inquires had so far been opened against him in Germany.

French reports said that among the offences he was suspected of committing were the rape of his daughter over a number of years.

German authorities first alerted their counterparts on 7 October that the suspect had crossed into France.

His whereabouts were passed on days later and he was detained on 16 October.

He is now being held in Colmar during extradition proceedings.
