Kate McCann Quizzed For 11 Hours

The mother of missing four-year-old Madeleine McCann has left a police station in Portimao, after 11 hours of questioning.

Kate McCann looked drawn and tired as she emerged from the headquarters of the Policia Judiciaria alongside her lawyer and her sister-in-law Trisha Cameron.

She is still being treated as a witness, according to her lawyer Carlo Pinto de Brao.

In a short statement he said: "The investigation is still going to continue; as you know our secrecy laws don't allow us to say any more.

"I can assure you that she was heard all day long as a witness and that is all that we have to say."

Mrs McCann's lawyer also confirmed that Madeleine's father Gerry is due to return for separate questioning later today.

Portuguese police have not revealed why they want to speak to the McCanns again.

But there is speculation the move may be linked to forensic tests on samples taken from the family's holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, or to their plans to return to Britain.

Detectives telephoned Mr McCann on Monday to summon the couple back to Portimao police station, specifying that his wife should be questioned first.

A family friend of the McCanns said they regarded the interviews as a "step forward in the investigation" but were apprehensive about their significance.

"They do fear they are about to become suspects," the friend added, stressing that they remained witnesses in the case.

Mr Pinto de Abreu travelled down to the Algarve from Lisbon yesterday so he could sit in on Mrs McCann's interview and will be present when Mr McCann is questioned today.

Portuguese police have repeatedly said that the couple are not suspects in the case, but they have endured a series of "hurtful and untrue" media reports alleging they were involved.
