Fiji police have reportedly arrested more people in relation to ongoing sedition investigations.

FBC News reports the men were apprehended in Vanua Levu, in the country's North, but did not say how many had been arrested.

The director of intelligence and investigations, Henry Brown, says the suspects fled to the North when police made a series of arrests in the Western Division.

He says the men have been returned to the West for questioning, and the main focus of investigations remains the Nadroga and Ra regions.

Dozens of people from various groups have been rounded up after being accused of sedition in recent months, with one group in Ra accused of trying to form a breakaway Christian state.
