Journalist who wrote article that published McAreavey photos arrested in Mauritius

The Prime Minister of Mauritius has told the Irish Independent, that he knows who leaked the photographs of Michaela McAreavey's dead body to a newspaper.

In an interview published in today's paper, Navin Ramglooam says the source of the pictures did NOT come from within the police force itself, but from someone else close to the case.

He says the source of the leak will be confirmed within the coming days - and that the journalist who wrote the article in last week's Mauritian Sunday Times has been interviewed by police.

Meanwhile the Prime Minister of Mauritius is to invite Gardai and the PSNI to help in the investigation into the murder of Michaela McAreavey.

He's now writing a letter to the PSNI and Gardai inviting them to help with the investigation after two men were acquitted of the killing last week.

Justice Minister Alan Shatter says although the request hasn't yet been received the response is likely to be favourable:
