ORANJESTAD, Aruba (AP) -- Authorities in Aruba and in the Netherlands have arrested three young men who had earlier been detained as suspects in the disappearance of American teenager Natalee Holloway.

The prosecutor's office in Aruba says Joran van der Sloot of the Netherlands and two brothers from Suriname have been arrested on suspicion of involvement in manslaughter and causing serious bodily harm resulting in Holloway's death.

Van der Sloot was arrested in the Netherlands, where he is attending a university. The others, Satish and Deepak Kalpoe, were arrested in Aruba. Van der Sloot is expected to be extradited to the Dutch Caribbean island.

Holloway disappeared in May of 2005, hours before she was scheduled to fly home to Alabama with her high school classmates. She was last seen leaving a bar with the three young men who are now back in custody.
