Images By Jason Dorday.

New Zealand Prime Minister, Helen Clark, has arrived in the Solomon Islands. Helen Clark was greeted on Sunday by Solomon Islands’ Prime Minister Sir Allan Kemakeza. The visit is a whistle-stop tour of the islands that New Zealand and Australian defence and police helped settle in 2003/04 when civil unrest threatened to launch the nation into civil war.
