Prosecutors in Fiji have decided there is not enough evidence to charge a group of politicians, after they were detained for holding a meeting.

Six men, including leaders of the main opposition parties, were arrested and taken to police cells for not having a permit for the meeting, as is required under a special decree.

But Fiji's Director of Public Prosecutions says there was no intention by anyone to break the rules.

In his decision, the police were also criticised for being "selective" about who they arrested.
