British police may have found body of murdered British journalist in Beirut


British police forensic researchers may have found the body of British journalist Alec Collett in Beirut.

Collet was on a writing assignment for the UN in 1985 when he was abducted by a Palestinian group calling itself The Revolutionary Organisation of Socialist Muslims, The Times reports. In 1986 a videotape was released purporting to show Collet had been hung in response for the US attack on Tripoli.

The forensic researchers have found two bodies in the Bekaa Valley, one of which is undergoing DNA tests to find out if it is Collett.
