LONDON – Detectives investigating the mysterious death of a British intelligence official said they were hunting for two people seen entering his apartment building in recent weeks.
 Gareth Williams, a 30-year-old official at GCHQ, Britain’s eavesdropping and code-breaking agency, was discovered dead at his central London apartment on August 23. His naked remains were found inside a locked sports bag.
 Williams was working on attachment to the MI6 spy agency at the time of his death, but security officials believe it is unlikely that his killing was connected with his work.
 In a statement, Scotland Yard said the visitors, a man and a woman, were “both of Mediterranean appearance, aged between 20 and 30 years old,” and had been seen at the apartment block in the Pimlico district one night in June or July. (AP)
