Maltese police have arrested ten suspects in the murder of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, prime minister Joseph Muscat has announced, almost two months after her car was blown up in an apparent targeted assassination.

All of those arrested are Maltese nationals and most have a criminal record, the PM said at a press conference on Monday morning. The police have 48 hours to question the suspects, arraign them or release them.

The spate of arrests comes just days after a European Parliament delegation from Brussels visited the island EU member state and warned that rule of law was failing there, with authorities showing a “high degree of unwillingness to investigate”.
