British tourist 'hit his head' in custody
A British tourist who died in police custody in Dubai hit his head against a wall while resisting officers but this did not cause his death, local authorities said yesterday.
Lee Brown, 39, from east London, was arrested for allegedly trying to throw a female housekeeper off a balcony at the luxury Burj Al Arab hotel. He died on 12 April amid claims officers punched and kicked him during his time in custody at Bur Dubai police station.
A forensic report showed the "minor" injuries found on Mr Brown's body could not have caused his death, said Issam Al Humaidan, Dubai's attorney-general.
