The former head of Mexico's state oil company has been arrested in Spain on an international warrant issued by Mexico.

Mexican Attorney General Alejandro Gertz Manero says the arrest took place Wednesday in the southeastern Spanish port city of Malaga.

Lozoya was director of Pemex between 2012 and 2016 during the administration of former Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto.

Mexico issued international arrest warrants against Lozoya last year as a result of corruption investigations, including into his alleged ties to Odebrecht.

The Brazilian construction company secured contracts across Latin America through a network of bribes.

Lozoya has denied wrongdoing.
