A hotel worker in Mauritius was tonight said by the country's police commissioner to have confessed to the murder of an Irish teacher while she was on honeymoon.

Avinash Treebhoowoon, 29, who appeared in court yesterday along with two others, is reported to have admitted that he killed Michaela McAreavey, the daughter of the All-Ireland Gaelic football winner Mickey Harte.
