9:13 am on 15 December 2003

Fiji police have arrested and charged a man with the murder of four young people near Ba last week.

24-year old bus conductor, Waisele Waqanivala, will appear in Ba court this morning amid tight security.

The Director of Criminal Investigations, Emosi Vunisa, says the man has confessed that his motive was robbery, but that it had gone wrong.

The murder weapon has been found and further investigations are continuing.

A Ba farmer discovered the bloodstained bodies of two Fijian women, an Indo-Fijian man and a Fijian man, all in their early 20s, near an isolated drinking spot last Tuesday morning.
