Aruba Missing Teen

ORANJESTAD, Aruba (AP) _ Lawyers for one of the men arrested in
the disappearance of a U.S. teenager in Aruba is disputing that
there's new evidence in the case.

Prosecutors have submitted what they say is new evidence to a
judge to justify detaining the three men. The attorneys say the
evidence is not significant or new. They accuse prosecutors of
rehashing old evidence and they predict all three suspects will be
released again.

Natalee Holloway was last seen leaving a bar with the men on May
30th, 2005.

They say the new evidence includes segments of interrogations
that had not been transcribed previously and recordings of
conversations.

One of the attorneys says ``90 to 95 percent'' of the material
in the summary file is not new.

Meantime, a judge in Aruba has ruled there is enough evidence to
detain suspect Joran van der Sloot (YOHR'-uhn VAN'-dur-sloht) for
an initial eight-day period while authorities pursue the
investigation. A judge had already made such a ruling for brothers
Satish (sah-TEESH') and Deepak Kalpoe (DEE'-pahk KAL'-poh).
