9:59 am on 7 June 2013

A convicted killer in Samoa, Laki Nauer, who was reported to have escaped from the court house last week during an appeal hearing, has been back behind bars for the past week at the main Tafaigata prison.

Police would not give more details but a source says Nauer had not escaped but had gone home to get his clothes and other personal items after his appeal was dismissed.

He was later taken to jail by an assistant police commissioner.
