DNA advances lead to arrest for 1995 murder
Advances in DNA analyses has led to the arrest of a man in connection to a murder in Geneva 23 years ago.
In November 1995 an Egyptian man who worked for the United Nations in Geneva was gunned down in a building in Le Bouchet near the Palais des Nations.
DNA samples were taken from a gun found near the body at the time. New analysis has now linked the weapon to a used car salesman who lives in France. The man was already known to the police.
The man is denying any knowledge of the murder. Samples of female DNA was also found.
