Three men charged over murder of investigative reporter Daphne Caruana Galizia

All of the suspects are Maltese nationals and most have a criminal record, the Prime Minister said, without providing any further details.

Maltese police have arrested 10 suspects in the murder of anti-corruption blogger Daphne Caruana Galizia.

"During this operation, 8 persons were arrested" the statement said, adding that they faced "reasonable suspicion in connection with involvement in the murder" of Caruana Galizia. Shortly afterward, he tweeted that two others had been arrested. They also are Maltese, Home Minister Michael Farrugia said.

Maltese police have arrested 10 suspects in the murder of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, Prime Minister Joseph Muscat said, nearly two months after her vehicle was blown up while she was driving it.

"Caruana Galizia's critics called her a force of nature who had on at least one occasion nearly single-handedly brought the government to collapse".

The journalist's family alleged last month that Farrugia had put the investigation at risk by sharing confidential information with lawmakers. The minister brushed off the allegation, but the family said it was prepared to take legal action to prevent the government from sabotaging the investigation.

The three were arraigned in court after being arrested, along with seven other men, in a series of raids involving the police, armed forces and intelligence services, on Monday morning.

Authorities have 48 hours to question those in custody before either charging or releasing them.

The three main suspects arrived at court under a heavy police escort on Tuesday.

Europol, the police agency of the European Union, with help from FBI and Dutch forensic experts, joined the Maltese police in the investigation.

Just before her death, Caruana Galizia, 53, had posted on her closely followed blog, Running Commentary, that there were "crooks everywhere" in Malta.
