    World News - Yvonne Fletcher UK police talks

    30 August 2011 Last updated at 10:03 ET Downing Street is seeking permission for police officers investigating the murder of PC Yvonne Fletcher to visit Libya, No 10 has confirmed.

    Downing Street said it would raise the issue with Libya's National Transitional Council (NTC) and hoped an agreement could be reached soon.

    Ms Fletcher was shot dead in 1984 while policing a demonstration outside the Libyan embassy in London.

    Junior diplomat Abdulmagid Salah Ameri has been named as the chief suspect.

    Ms Fletcher's mother has said the overthrow of the regime of Col Muammar Gaddafi offers the best chance of yet of bringing her daughter's killer to justice.

    Following a meeting of the National Security Council to discuss developments in Libya, No 10 said discussions would take place "when it is appropriate" about "outstanding issues" between the two countries - including the Fletcher case.

    "In terms of Yvonne Fletcher there is an ongoing police investigation and we are working with the NTC to see whether we can ensure those investigations continue in Libya," No 10 said.

    Some senior figures within the NTC - the body recognised by the UK as the sole governing authority in Libya - have appeared to rule out the possibility of any Libyan nationals being extradited to the UK to face charges in connections with the murder.

    Suspect named But Foreign Secretary William Hague has insisted the NTC will co-operate with the police inquiry.

    No-one has ever been charged with PC Fletcher's murder. While the shots that killed her were fired from inside the embassy, the Libyan staff claimed diplomatic immunity and were deported.

    The Daily Telegraph reported on Saturday that a dossier of evidence had been handed to UK prosecutors includes a witness account claiming the shooter was Abdulmagid Salah Ameri, a junior diplomat working in London at the time.

    Prime Minister David Cameron is due to hold talks with members of the NTC in Paris on Thursday as part of an Anglo-French summit designed to pave the way for it to formally assume power in Libya.

    The agenda for the summit was one of a range of issues discussed in Tuesday's Whitehall meeting, the BBC's Political Correspondent Robin Brant said.

    While uncertainty over the whereabouts of Col Gaddafi and continuing violence in parts of the country was complicating progress on other fronts - including humanitarian supplies - he said UK officials believed the former Libyan leader's future could become clearer within the next week or so.

    Rebel leaders have warned that unless troops loyal to Col Gaddafi holding out in the city of Sirte - his birthplace and one remaining stronghold - to surrender by Saturday, they will use force.
