PRAIA DA LUZ - The detective leading the hunt for Madeleine McCann has been charged over his conduct in another missing child case.

Goncalo Amaral, head of the regional Judicial Police, is one of five officers accused over the beating-up of a suspect during questioning.

They are said to have attacked Leonor Cipriano, whose 9-year-old daughter Joana vanished from the Algarve in 2004.

Cipriano was convicted of murder and jailed, along with her brother Joao, even though Joana's body was never found. A photograph of Cipriano's face covered in bruises following her police interview has been published in Portuguese newspapers.

Police still do not have any suspects in their Madeleine hunt apart from Robert Murat, who looks increasingly likely to be cleared of any involvement.-DAILY MAIL
