VIENNA (AP) - An Austrian law enforcement official says a former Libyan prime minister found dead in the Danube river suffered a heart attack before drowning.
Thomas Vecsey of the state prosecutor's office says investigations are continuing into Shukri Ghanem's death, but police are sure it was accidental.
Ghanem's body was found floating in the Danube April 29, just a few hundred meters (yards) from his Vienna home.
Police initially said he had drowned, but Vecsey's comments Tuesday were the first mention of a heart attack. Vecsey cited the result of a medical report into the death as his source.
Ghanem was considered a member of deposed Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi's inner circle until his defection last year, and his death had sparked speculation of foul play.
