Four men arrested in Malaysia over the fatal stabbings of two British medical students after a row in a bar have admitted the crime, a police chief said.
The local men were arrested over the killing of Newcastle University students Neil Dalton and Aidan Brunger, who were in the country on attachment to a local hospital.
Deputy police commissioner Chai Khin Chung said police had now finished their investigation after the men confessed to the stabbings.
We have finished our investigation, the crime has been solved. The suspects have been apprehended and they have admitted the crime. We have recovered the weapons from the crime.
We are waiting for the corpses in the hospital mortuary to have the post-mortem carried out. We have all the major evidence in our hands which we will send to the prosecution.
