Two brothers held in the disappearance of American teenager Natalee Holloway will stay in custody for at least another eight days on an Aruban judge's order.

The judge made the decision after reviewing new evidence against Surinamese brothers Satish and Deepak Kalpoe. Prosecutors will use the additional time to pursue their investigation into Holloway's disappearance.

Joran van der Sloot is the third suspect in the case. He's expected to arrive in Aruba today from the Netherlands.

All three were re-arrested this week in light of new evidence in the case.

A Dutch newspaper is reporting the evidence comes from phone taps of conversations between Van der Sloot and the brothers from earlier this year.

Holloway was last seen leaving a bar with the three in Aruba in May of 2005.
