Entertainer Rolf Harris re-arrested over sex crime claims
LONDON, England (AFP) - Australian entertainer and artist Rolf Harris was re-arrested by police in Britain on Monday over further allegations of sexual offences.
Harris, 83, was first arrested in March by officers from the unit set up after claims of sex abuse were made against the late BBC TV star Jimmy Savile.
Harris's arrest was unrelated to Savile, who police now believe was a serial abuser of under-age girls and boys.
London's Metropolitan Police said Harris had been "further arrested in connection with further allegations", and re-bailed until a date in August that was not divulged.
