POLICE EXHUME BODIES IN SOLOMON ISLANDS

SYDNEY, Australia (ABC News Online, Oct. 7) - Police in the Solomon Islands are exhuming the graves of seven missionaries allegedly killed by former warlord Harold Keke and his men.

Investigators from the Australian-led Regional Assistance Mission traveled to the remote Weather coast on the island of Guadalcanal to carry out the grisly task.

The Deputy Commissioner of Police, Ben McDevitt, says he is confident that all those responsible for the murders are in police custody.

He says the murder investigation may be the largest in the South Pacific for the last two decades.
