WELLINGTON, New Zealand (RNZI, April 30) – U.S. agents flew
eight American Samoan residents to Hawaii only hours after FBI agents arrested
them early today.

A spokesman for the FBI declined to give details of the charges
but our correspondent says the arrests relate to a medical insurance fraud
investigation at the government-owned LBJ Medical Center.

Sources say the indictment comes out of a U.S. district court in
Georgia but those people being flown out will be arraigned in Honolulu tomorrow.

The FBI is reported to be looking for more suspects who are
outside of American Samoa.
