David Cameron announces Yvonne Fletcher probe to continue in Libya

David Cameron announced that a Metropolitan Police team will be visiting Libya to continue a probe into the murder of Wpc Yvonne Fletcher, as he welcomed the country's interim Prime Minister Abdurrahim El-Keib to Downing Street.

Mr Cameron said it was a "really positive step forward" that would be "welcomed by everyone in Britain".

Mr El-Keib said: "The Fletcher case is one case that is close to my heart personally, I had friends that were demonstrating that day next to the Embassy and it's a sad story. It is very unfortunate that it has anything to do with the Libyan people."
