Samoa's prime minister has gone public with his desire to re-home the University of the South Pacific in his country.

In the latest chapter of his fraught presidency at the region's premier university, professor Ahluwalia and his wife were arrested and deported by Fiji authorities without consulting other regional partner governments.
