The BBC reports:
Pakistan’s cricket captain and the assistant coach have been interviewed for a second time by police investigating Bob Woolmer’s murder.
Inzamam-ul-Haq and Mushtaq Ahmed were questioned by Jamaican police on Saturday although both have said they were only completing formalities.
The team was now free to leave Jamaica, said deputy commissioner of police, Mark Shields.
The Pakistan team are due to fly home from Montego Bay at 2340 GMT.
Mr Shields said the players were questioned to “clear up” any possible “ambiguities” given in the statements from the team.
“Throughout this process, there has been nothing but co-operation from the Pakistan team,” Mr Shields added.
Jamaican police have already taken DNA samples and fingerprints from all Pakistan players.
