WASHINGTON - The possible involvement of US government employees in the Home Office search for Bill Clinton's immigration and naturalisation files is to be examined by the State Department, writes Patrick Cockburn.

Larry Eagleburger, the acting Secretary of State, has asked his department's inspector-general, Sherman Funk, to 'determine if US government employees requested or were otherwise involved in the British search,' a State Department spokesman said yesterday. Mr Funk is already conducting an inquiry into the State Department's own search for the passport files of Mr Clinton and his mother.
