JOHANNESBURG — A British businessman who was acquitted of arranging the murder of his wife on their honeymoon in Cape Town left South Africa on Tuesday.

Shrien Dewani, who was extradited this year from Britain to face trial in South Africa, arrived at Cape Town's international airport. Journalists saw him board an Emirates flight to Dubai, where he could possibly catch a connecting flight to Britain.

Dewani did not speak as he was escorted through the airport while surrounded by media seeking comment.

Dewani was cleared Monday of paying hitmen to kill his wife Anni in 2010 and make it look like a botched carjacking. In issuing her ruling, Judge Jeanette Traverso said evidence in the prosecution's case was insufficient.
