LONDON May 16 A man who was arrested in 2015 in
connection with the murder of British policewoman Yvonne
Fletcher outside the Libyan embassy in London in 1984 has been
released from police bail and will not face charges at this
time, British police said on Tuesday.
Fletcher, who was 25 and had joined the police aged 19, was
hit in the back by a shot fired from the embassy while she was
policing a demonstration by Libyan dissidents against Muammar
Gaddafi, who then ruled the North African country.
The shooting triggered an 11-day siege of the building by
London's Metropolitan Police, the deportation of 30 Libyans in
the embassy and the severing of diplomatic ties between London
