Patrick Devillers the former business partner of Neil Heywood's and his Alleged Killer Arrested in Cambodia

The former business partner of British businessman Neil Heywood's alleged killer has been arrested in Cambodia, it has emerged.

French architect Patrick Devillers, 51, was detained 'two to three days ago' in the capital Phnom Penh in the latest twist to the biggest political scandal to hit China in years.

Cambodian government spokesman Khieu Kanharith said China had requested Devillers' arrest because of possible involvement in the murder of British businessman Neil Heywood.
