    World News - Fletcher suspect 'found in Libya'

    31 August 2011 Last updated at 05:05 ET Libya's interim leaders know the whereabouts of a suspected accomplice in the 1984 murder of PC Yvonne Fletcher, according to reports.

    The Daily Telegraph says Matouk Mohamed Matouk is the last named suspect alive connected with the killing outside the Libyan Embassy in London.

    The paper quotes Ali Tarhouni, a senior National Transitional Council (NTC) figure, saying "we know where he is".

    Abdulqadir al-Baghdadi, another murder suspect, has been found dead in Libya.

    Mr Tarhouni denied reports that Mr Matouk had been placed under house arrest due to his long service with the Gaddafi regime, the Telegraph said.

    'Co-conspirator' It described Mr Tarhouni as the de facto deputy prime minister of the new government and said Mr Matouk had recently tried to defect to the NTC.

    The paper said the disclosure that rebels know where Mr Matouk is will pile pressure on Libya's new government to co-operate with Scotland Yard's ongoing investigation.

    A Metropolitan Police spokesman told the BBC it remained committed to identifying those involved and detectives were still in regular contract with PC Fletcher's family.

    Mr al-Baghdadi is one of three former diplomatic staff alleged to have been involved in the killing, according to a witness statement given to UK prosecutors.

    Libyan opposition officials revealed on Tuesday that the "co-conspirator" had been found dead, and Foreign Secretary William Hague said the UK wanted to know "a great deal more" about the circumstances.

    Documents handed to the Crown Prosecution Service also alleged that Abdulmagid Salah Ameri, a more junior diplomat at the time, had actually fired the gun.

    He is believed to have died some time ago.

    Yvonne Fletcher was shot dead when a gunman fired from the embassy at a protest outside after an 11-day stand-off.

    About 30 Libyans were allowed to leave the embassy under diplomatic conventions.

    The British government has said it intends to send police officers to Libya to continue their investigation into the killing.
