McAfee arrested in Guatemala

Police in Guatemala have 'finally' arrested the absconding software tycoon, John McAfee, who had crossed into Guatemala over the weekend with his 20-year-old girlfriend.

The arrest came three weeks after his disappearance following the murder of a fellow American in Belize. McAfee was detained by police and a member of Interpol at the Intercontinental Hotel in Guatemala City.

Mr McAfee was taken to a residence belonging to the immigration department guarded by police.

Police in Belize want to question him, but say he is not a prime suspect in the killing of Gregory Faull.


The 67-year-old Mr McAfee is one of Silicon Valley's first entrepreneurs to build an Internet fortune and made millions of dollars through the Internet antivirus that now carries his name. 

He had been seeking political asylum in Guatemala, which has been embroiled in a long-running territorial dispute with Belize.

The authorities plan to expel him, it is learnt so far.
