British newspapers inquire into Jean Charles de Menezes killing

As the row over the shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes rages, the British papers consider new claims from staff at Stockwell Tube station.

The Times says they insist CCTV cameras on the platform were working when police shot the Brazilian electrician.

Police officers are said to have told investigators no footage was available, BBC informs. The Daily Mail asks whether there was a cover-up, but the Financial Times urges critics to "hold fire" until the inquiry into the killing is complete.

As noted earlier, Wagner Goncalves, of Brazil's federal prosecutor's office, and Marcio Pereira Pinto Garcia, of its ministry of justice, flew to the UK on Monday to look into the circumstances surrounding the killing of the 27-year-old electrician.
