(AP Photo/Kin Cheung) TOKYO, Dec 21 (Reuters) - Japanese prosecutors have re-arrested Nissan Motor Co's ousted chairman Carlos Ghosn for aggravated breach of trust, which means he could be detained for another 10 days, media reported on Friday.

The move comes after a Tokyo court on Thursday unexpectedly rejected prosecutors' request to extend Ghosn's detention, which raised the possibility that he could go free on bail as early as Friday.
