Fiji police continue hunt for escaped convicts

8:13 pm on 15 November 2006

Police in Fiji launched their latest operation to try to recapture four escaped convicts.

They were among several who escaped from prison earlier in the year.

Police deployed four teams of officers who will set up road blocks and conduct searches for the escapees.

The convicts are believed to have taken part in a recent spate of robberies and home invasions, based on witness descriptions.
