A 77-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the assassination of a Seychellois politician in London in 1985. BBC News reported on Friday that the man was arrested in County Antrim, North Ireland. 

Gérard Hoarau was the leader of a political movement called ‘Mouvman pour Larezistans’ (MPR) formed in 1979 and had been living in exile in the city when he was killed in 1985. Hoarau was shot a number of times with a sub-machine gun on the doorstep of his home in Edgware.
