Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi has said he is sorry about the death of a British policewoman shot outside Tripoli's embassy in London 25 years ago, but does not know the identity of her killer.
Yvonne Fletcher was killed in April 1984 by shots fired from inside the embassy. No one has been convicted of the 1984 killing, though the Libyan government has accepted that its agents were responsible.
"She is not an enemy to us, and we are sorry all the time and our sympathy, because she was on duty, she was there to protect the Libyan Embassy," Gadhafi told Sky News in an interview broadcast Monday
He said the case is "a problem which should be solved. But who did it? That's the question."
Britain broke off diplomatic relations with Libya for 15 years after the shooting. The two countries restored diplomatic relations in 1999 after Libya accepted responsibility for Fletcher's shooting, apologized and agreed to pay her family compensation.
