French architect with alleged links to politicians Bo Xilai is flying back to China, Cambodian officials say

Patrick Devillers was detained in Phnom Penh on 13 June at China's request.

He reportedly had close ties to Mr Bo and his wife, Gu Kailai, a suspect in the death of British man Neil Heywood.

Cambodia had said he would not be sent to either China or France without an investigation, but officials said he left on Tuesday of his own free will.
