Murder Suspected Spotted In Glasgow

A man wanted for the murder of a teacher in Burma has reportedly been tracked down to a flat in Scotland.
Harris Binotti, 26, was seen leaving a flat in Craigton, Glasgow which he is said to share with his Belgian girlfriend, according to the Scottish Sun.
Interpol issued an international "red notice'' alert for the Scots teacher who left Burma after colleague Gary Ferguson, 47, was killed in Rangoon in November last year.
Burmese police have said Mr Binotti, thought to be from Dumfries, had not been seen since he and Mr Ferguson had been drinking together in Burma.
Interpol's notice alerts police forces around the world that Mr Binotti is wanted on a charge of murder and describes him as 1.68m (5ft 5in) with brown hair and blue eyes.
Mr Binotti and Mr Ferguson taught English at the Horizon International School in Rangoon.
The wanted man had worked in different jobs before taking up a post as an English teacher in Rangoon including a holiday representative, a ski representative and an assistant duty hotel manager.
A spokesman for Interpol said: "At the request of Myanmar (Burmese) authorities, Interpol issued a Red Notice, or international wanted persons alert, for Mr Binotti.
"A red notice is a request to provisionally arrest an individual pending extradition issue upon the request of a member country based on a valid national arrest warrant. It is not an international arrest warrant.''
Interpol said it did not send officers to arrest individuals, but added: "Many of Interpol's member countries, however, consider a red notice a valid request for provisional arrest.''
A spokesman for Police Scotland said it had nothing further to add on the apparent sighting of Mr Binotti in the Glasgow area.
