The former head of the Fiji Visitors Bureau was briefly held by police after he reportedly sent an e-mail to tour operators warning them of a disastrous earthquake predicted by a church minister who said God told him it would strike at 2:30 pm (0230 GMT) Wednesday.

Fiji’s military strongman, Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama, had warned last week that those spreading rumours of the prophecy were trying to cause instability and would be dealt with under emergency regulations.
