Fletcher team set for Libya
Friday 25 May 2012
A Metropolitan Police team is to fly to Libya to continue the investigation into the murder of WPC Yvonne Fletcher.
David Cameron said the visit was a "really positive step forward" in the inquiry into the killing of the officer, who was shot dead in 1984 as she policed an anti-Gaddafi demonstration outside the Libyan embassy in London.
On a visit to No 10, Libya's interim leader, Abdurrahim El-Keib, promised that his country would "work very closely" with the UK to resolve outstanding questions about the killing of 25-year-old WPC Fletcher, who is believed to have been hit by a shot fired from within the embassy.
Her death led to an 11-day siege of the building in St James's Square and the severing of diplomatic links between the UK and Libya.
