Police in
London are investigating the “unexplained” death of an Arab man at a hotel in
in Mayfair.

According to
reports in UK media, the man in his 40s was found unresponsive in his hotel
room by cleaners at the five-star Dorchester Hotel. Ambulance crews attended
the scene, but he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Two men aged 31
and 50, both from west London and known to the deceased, were arrested and
released on bail, pending further enquiries, to return to a central London
police station on a date in June.

Scotland Yard
said a post-mortem examination has been carried out in a case that “is being
treated as unexplained”.

The examination, carried out at Westminster Public
Mortuary, has since been found to be “inconclusive”.

“The coroner
has ordered further toxicology tests, which may take around eight weeks,” said
Scotland Yard.

Next of kin
have been informed, but formal identification has not taken place, it added.
