MADDY WATCH Anorak’s at-a-glance guide to press coverage of Madeleine McCann


• Her face was bruised
• She had the eye mark
• Driven 180 miles”

Naoul Malhi is in Morocco. She is 30. She sees a child. She looks into the child’s eyes. Says she: “It was Madeleine. There’s no mistaking that mark”

Pages 4 and 5: More from Malhi: “Her blonde hair was cut shorter and she had a big bruise on her forehead and looked very unhappy [ like the girl in Belgium ].
