TEN PEOPLE ARRESTED FOR THE MURDER OF CARUANA
Ten people were arrested today for the murder of Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galicia, who was killed on October 16 in the explosion of her car. This was announced by Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, who during a press conference explained that the arrests were taken during an operation that took place in Marsa, Zebbug, Bugibba and other areas of the island. Some of those arrested had already appeared in court in relation to other cases and are well known to the police, while the other suspects have no criminal record.
The Maltese Prime Minister thanked for the work done by the Maltese investigators. The joint operation was conducted by the police, armed forces, secret services, as well as by the FBI, Europol and Finnish officials.
The investigators have 48 hours to interrogate the people arrested and indict them.
