New Zealand Police Hold 17 in Terror Raids

New Zealand police have arrested 17 people and seized a number of weapons during a series of anti-terror raids. More than 300 police were involved in the operation, reportedly targeting Maori sovereignty and environmental activists - not foreign groups. Those arrested had used firearms and other weapons at military style training camps. Among those held was the prominent Maori rights campaigner, Tame Iti.
