Vanuatu police hunt Foster

Police in Vanuatu have confirmed they are looking for convicted Australian conman Peter Foster.

Foster had been under house arrest in Fiji, where he is facing fraud charges, but failed to appear in a Suva court on Tuesday.

Police in Vanuatu say they are searching for him after reports he arrived in the capital Port Villa on a yacht.

Foster shot to international prominence in 2002 when he bought two flats on behalf of Cherie Blair - the wife of British Prime Minister Tony Blair.

His career has included prison spells in Australia, Britain and the United States for offences including marketing quack slimming remedies.
