New probe to begin on Michaela

DETAILS of a new police team to investigate the murder of Michaela McAreavey in Mauritius have been revealed.

The fresh probe will be carried out under Superintendent Yaswant Callee of the Central Criminal Investigation Division.

The new team will question those in the immediate proximity of John and Michaela McAreavey's Legends Hotel room shortly before the murder. They will also try to locate the room's electronic card key and examine all the DNA samples found.

The re-opening of the case follows talks between the Irish ambassador to Mauritius and the country's prime minister.
