The same was on nzherald.co.nz

Yes it happened last week, but John Key only told us about it this afternoon, thats why it was "breaking news".

Somehow I don't think the OP was pointing out the fact that it was "breaking news" :)

Ha, i agree completely.

If some kiwi tourists were in a gun fight that would be worthy of breaking news.  Like you said, this is the job they have been trained to do, hardly breaking news?

Maybe the whole point is now to disgust (or fascinate) the enemy to death!
