GUATEMALA CITY (AP) - A Guatemalan official says software company founder John McAfee has been arrested in Guatemala City for entering the country illegally.

Interior Minister Mauricio Lopez Bonilla said McAfee was detained by police at a hotel in an upscale neighborhood.

Earlier Wednesday, McAfee said he had formally requested asylum in Guatemala claiming he is being persecuted in Belize, where he is wanted for questioning in the fatal shooting of a neighbor.
