AUSTRALIA - Bikie shooting suspect arrested at airport

One of Australia's most wanted men has been arrested at Sydney Airport over the fatal shooting of a bikie in 2009.
Anthony Tan, 27, was arrested when he got off a flight from Vietnam just after 9:00am (AEDT), and has since been charged with one count of murder.
He had been wanted since a shoot-out where a 23-year-old Rebels bikie was killed in January 2009 at a car yard at Campbelltown, in Sydney's south-west.
Tan left Australia in the days after the shooting and went to Vietnam, which has no extradition treaty with Australia.
Detective Sergeant Keith Bristow says Tan contacted police through his lawyer in recent days and said he wanted to surrender himself.
Tan has reportedly said he was surprised to discover he had been added to New South Wales' "most wanted" list last month.
He boarded the flight at Ho Chi Minh City last night.
Tan was taken to Mascot Police Station for questioning, but Sergeant Bristow says he maintained his right to silence.
He is expected to face court this afternoon.
