Over to Tonga now for an update on the manslaughter case involving three police officers.

This morning the three appeared in court, but had their case adjourned until January and were released on bail.

They were charged early this week over the death of a man after a fight at a party.

The results of a postmortem are due to be released shortly, and police are investigating reports the dead man and the police officers were attending separate parties.
