Protestors occupied a squat

Tough new US-style tactics are being used by police to thwart the attempts of anti-capitalist protestors attempting to set up squats in the City of London.

A lightning raid was executed by officers just hours after Occupy London activists took over a former Midland Bank building in the Square Mile.

Officers swooped on the building in central London, just yards from police headquarters.

Four people were arrested and 25 evicted from the premises.

Former Egyptian finance minister, Youssef Boutros-Ghali, was living openly in London despite being convicted of corruption and profiteering in his home country.

MPs wanted to know why he was being allowed to remain in the UK, despite being the subject of an Interpol “red notice”.

Mr Boutros-Ghali, the nephew of the former UN secretary-general Boutros Boutros-Ghali, was convicted and sentenced to 30 years in jail for corruption, abusing state and private assets as well as profiteering.

He was ordered to repay 60 million Egyptian pounds (£6.1m).
