Anti-terror raids target training camps
Oct 15, 2007 6:21 PM 

A huge police operation has seen anti-terror raids
across New Zealand, centred on the discovery in remote
mountain ranges of what police say are guerilla-style
training camps.

Armed police converged on a valley inland from
Whakatane just as the area was waking on Monday.
Police say they were hunting for suspected terrorists
based in the remote community.

Weapons were seized from the camps which are based in
the forest.

Over 300 police staff were involved at the peak of the
operation on Monday morning and the area was brought
to a standstill with all traffic stopped, cars, locals
and visitors searched. 

Up the valley in the tiny community of Ruatoki, police
were targeting houses.

A handful of people there were arrested including well
known activist Tame Iti who appeared in the Rotorua
District Court charged with possessing a firearm and
molotov cocktails.
