1:58 pm on 21 January 2010

A German man has been released by the Vanuatu court on bail after being arrested by police this week and charged with threatening to kill.

Police say the man threatened to shoot his workmen at their work place in Port Vila.

Police, who have seized two guns at his home, are also investigating him for allegations of drug dealing.

The court has ordered the man, whom police describe as dangerous, not to leave the island of Efate until his court appearance next month.
