DENPASAR, Indonesia (AFP) - Australian drug mule Schapelle Corby brandished a knife and acted erratically in an encounter with Indonesian authorities after a government minister warned her parole was in peril, an official said on Tuesday.

Mr Sunar Agus, a top prison official in Bali, said he visited 36-year-old Corby on Monday evening at her residence on the resort island of Bali.

The visit followed the airing of a TV documentary in Australia on Sunday that featured an interview with Corby's sister Mercedes, which has angered Indonesian authorities.

"We saw that she wasn't mentally stable," said Mr Agus, chief of the Bali Corrections Division which is in charge of overseeing Corby's parole.
