Two brothers held in the disappearance of American teenager Natalee Holloway were expected to appear before a judge Friday in Aruba while a third suspect was due to be transferred soon to the Dutch Caribbean island from the Netherlands.
Surinamese brothers Satish and Deepak Kalpoe were scheduled to make an initial appearance before a judge who will consider whether prosecutors have enough evidence to justify holding them for at least eight more days while continuing to pursue the investigation.
