Fugitive paparazzi turns up in Portugal

MILAN, Italy, Jan. 23 -- Fugitive Italian paparazzi Fabrizio Corona has surrendered to police in Portugal, sources close to the investigation said.

Corona disappeared hours before an appeals court in Italy confirmed his conviction and five-year prison sentence for blackmailing celebrities with compromising photographs, Italy's ANSA news agency reported Wednesday.

Police surveillance lost sight of Corona after he entered a gym and apparently slipped out a side exit.

Because he fled the country, two years and 10 months will be added to his sentence, ANSA said.
