Two more soldiers have been arrested by the CID this morning in connection with the abduction and assault on journalist Keith Noyahr in 2008.

The police said the suspects would be produced before Mt. Lavinia Magistrate today.

Earlier, CID arrested an Army Major and two Army soldiers over the incident. They were remanded until 23rd February.

Noyahr was an associate editor of the English language weekly The Nation when he was abducted in May 2008. He was severely beaten before being released, barely able to walk. After the attack, he fled the country with his family fearing for his life.
