• 5 arrested in Australia drug, money-laundering bust


    SYDNEY: Five men including a well-known music promoter have been arrested following an investigation involving the FBI into cocaine trafficking and money laundering in Australia, police said Friday. New South Wales police said the case, which allegedly involves money laundering through casinos, dates back to 2011 when they seized A$702,000 ($500,000) from a Sydney hotel room. Police said three men were arrested in Sydney on Thursday, another in Melbourne and the fifth in the United States, reportedly as he played golf. They did not name the five but the man arrested in Melbourne was named in reports as music promoter Andrew McManus, 54, whose promotion company has been involved in bringing bands such as Kiss to Australia.
