Guatemala has rejected an asylum request by US software pioneer John McAfee, who was arrested ion Wednesday after fleeing Belize.

Police in Belize want to quiz him over the killing of fellow American Gregory Faull, with whom the 67-year-old had quarrelled.

McAfee crossed into Guatemala with his 20-year-old girlfriend and claims he will be killed if returned to Belize.
