Two crew members of the SA Agulhas have been arrested for the murder of a fellow crew member.

Police spokesperson, Captain Randall Stoffels, confirmed that the deceased and the two sailors arrived in Cape Town aboard the Sarah Bartman. They were arrested and are being held in police cells.

The incident happened after an alleged altercation on board the vessel as it journeyed to Tristan Da Cunha Island. Edward Hulley (22) was later stabbed - allegedly while he was asleep.

The two are expected to appear in the Cape Town Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
