Wife of the main suspect in the murder of Yvonne Fletcher, Saleh Mabrouk, had been accused of clashing with Libyan dissidents in Britain, The Telegraph reported Sunday.
Kamila Otman was said to have opposed Libyan students living in the UK who supported the overthrow of the Gaddafi regime in 2011, according to the report.
The Telegraph added that Mrs Otman was accused of targeting her fellow Libyans at Reading University over their support of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi’s opponents during the uprising against his regime.
