A local fishmonger is considered the main suspect by police after the fatal stabbing of two British students in a reported bar row in Borneo, a local reporter has told ITV News.
Sharon Ling from Malaysian newspaper The Star said the 23-year-old man was arrested along with a 29-year-old mechanic and two other unemployed men.
She said all four would be remanded for seven days following the early morning killing of Neil Dalton and Aidan Brunger from Newcastle University.
Ms Ling said the island was in shock at the deaths, which she said occurred in an area generally considered to be safe.
