A police officer is killed and another seriously injured in a shooting in Massey, New Zealand. This is the first time a law enforcement officer in New Zealand has been killed in the line of duty since 2009. The shooter fled, injuring a civilian in the process, but he has since been arrested.
Seven survivors from the MV "Butiraoi", six adults and a baby, are found in a dinghy and rescued, four days after the 50-passenger ferry sank in Kiribati. New Zealand rescuers say there is a lot of debris near the dinghy, but no sign of anyone else.
