BELIZE BOUND: Anti-virus software pioneer John McAfee was denied political asylum in Guatemala on Thursday. Police in neighboring Belize expect him to be flown back soon for questioning about the killing of a fellow American expatriate.

SAFETY FEARS: McAfee said he requested asylum in Guatemala because he fears for his safety in Belize. He says he has sensitive information about official corruption in that country.

ILLEGAL ENTRY: McAfee, the creator of the anti-virus program that still bears his name, was arrested for illegally entering Guatemala, ending a bizarre weekslong journey as a self-styled fugitive with an active blog and constant contact with the media.
