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.
