French men being investigated
Two French men, aged around 20, are being investigated by the police after they were seen manoeuvring a boat which was later abandoned.
The police stopped the French men, who looked suspicious, as soon as they landed at around 4.30 a.m. In the meantime, the 14-foot boat was seen moving towards Balluta.
The AFM were called to search Balluta bay but their search proved negative.
The police informed the owner of the boat, which was damaged, of the find.
