TWO men have been arrested in connection with the attempted murder of a British man Peter Christley, 54, in Benalmadena in January. Christley was shot four times at point-blank range outside his home in the Torremar Park Urbanization and was injured in the stomach and the leg.
Apparently two men knocked on his door, and without saying a word, shot him. Both detainees are from Cork, in Ireland, and were identified by the victim.
One, aged 53, was arrested in Fuengirola, and the other, aged 45, was arrested in Montevideo, Uruguay, on an Interpol international arrest warrant.
It has not been established which of them pulled the trigger.
The victim has since recovered.
It is alleged the shooters gave him €200,000 drugs money for laundering which he claimed had been stolen and failed to return, Spanish daily El Pais reports.
