Police return from Argentina

Detectives investigating alleged war crimes by British paratroopers in the Falklands returned to London from Argentina and said their visit had been a success.

David Rangecroft, Scotland Yard's assistant director of public affairs, said he knew the visit would provoke strong emotions, but added: 'In professional policing terms, the success of the visit has fully justified the decision to go.' The inquiry centres on allegations that Argentine soldiers were shot after surrendering during a battle in June 1982. A report will be sent to the Crown Prosecution Service.
