GUATEMALA CITY (Reuters) - Guatemala will deport to the United States software pioneer John McAfee, who is wanted for questioning in Belize over the murder of a neighbour, a Guatemalan immigration official said on Wednesday.

McAfee has been held for a week by immigration officials in Guatemala, where the 67-year-old American surfaced after evading officials in Belize for nearly a month. McAfee's lawyers managed to block an attempt to deport him back to Belize.
