Boys Killed - F16 Deal - ACC Changes - Samoan Murders - Christchurch Killer

BOYS KILLED: The names have been released of two boys killed in a Whangarei house fire yesterday afternoon. The house was fitted with fire alarms and police think the boys may have been playing with matches under the house.

F16 DEAL: The Defence Minister Mark Burton said he has heard nothing from America about any change in the price of the F16 figher planes offered to New Zealand in a defence deal. ACT Leader Richard Prebble said the Americans had lowered the price of the jets and arranged to sell New Zealand’s ailing skyhawk fleet to the Phillipines.

ACC Changes: Ruth Dyson Associate Minister of ACC says she cannot accept evidence from the Insurance Council that private workplace insurance lowers accident or worker absentee rates. She calls the research of the council based on 6 months of private Accident Compensation "superficial".

SAMOAN MURDERS: A farmer has testified that a former minister offered him money and a gun to shoot another Samoan Cabinet Minister in a court case in Apia. Two former ministers are charged with the Cabinet Minister's murder and have pleaded not guilty.

CHRISTCHURCH KILLER: Police are looking for the killer of a Christchurch woman and her dog Kaos after the woman’s body was found in a Christchurch river on Sunday. They say her dog could be a key to her disappearence. They believe the woman was kidnapped while hitchhiking to the West Coast.
