The long arm of the law finally caught up with Islamic militant Khair Mundos on Wednesday, when he was arrested in Manila after a manhunt that lasted years.

Mundo, who was on the FBI's Most Wanted list and had a bounty of US$500,000 on his head, was described as a "key leader and financier" of the Abu Sayyaf, a Filipino Islamic extremist group responsible for carrying out bombings and mass kidnappings.

The FBI maintains lists for fugitives divided into categories such as Ten Most Wanted, Most Wanted Terrorists, Cyber's Most Wanted and Crimes Against Children. To date, the list has reached 502 fugitives, with 471 captured or located.

Here are the five most notorious criminals still at large.
