Video suggests suspect ate parts of body
MONTREAL — Video footage from the death and dismembering of a Chinese student seems to show the suspect eating the body, Canadian police said Tuesday.
Montreal Police Cmdr. Ian Lafreniere said that although police have not been able to conclusively confirm it, they suspect Luka Magnotta did eat parts of the body.
“As gross and as graphic as it could be, yes, it was seen on the video,” Cmdr. Lafreniere said.
Mr. Magnotta, 29, was arrested in Berlin while reading about himself at an Internet cafe on Monday after an employee recognized him from a newspaper photo and flagged down a police car.
A copy of the video viewed online by the Associated Press did not show anyone eating the body but did show a man using a fork and knife on it.
Mr. Magnotta appeared before a German judge in the afternoon and was ordered held pending extradition, police spokesman Thomas Neuendorf said. He was then transferred to a Berlin prison from a police detention center.
U.S. seeks inspection of suspected nuke site
VIENNA, Austria — A U.S. envoy challenged Iran on Tuesday to disprove suspicions it had worked to develop nuclear arms by throwing open a military site to U.N. inspection.
Robert Wood also urged Tehran to curb uranium enrichment, noting that with further work the material it has amassed would be enough for use in several atomic bombs.
He spoke to the 35-nation board of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) as it turned its attention to Iran’s nuclear program and concerns that it could be transformed into making weapons. That fear has generated threats of military action from Israel and the United States if diplomacy fails to persuade Tehran to compromise.
The IAEA late last month showed board members satellite photos that its officials and diplomats said seemed to show Iran moving earth and hosing down the insides of a building at its Parchin military site, southeast of Tehran.
