An All Nippon Airways Boeing 787 Dreamliner carrying 249 people had to make a second approach at a west Japan airport before landing, after a glitch forced the pilot to manually deploy the main landing gear, the airline said Monday. The first glitch on a commercial flight for the new plane occurred on a domestic route Sunday after a cockpit monitor showed that the landing gear had not fully deployed shortly before landing, ANA said. As flight 651 from Tokyo's Haneda airport approached Okayama airport in western Japan, the monitor issued a warning that the main landing gear had not deployed due to a hydraulic valve fault, an ANA spokeswoman said.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a "liar" in talks with US President Barack Obama, who then complained of having to deal with him daily. The private conversation, held during the G20 summit in the French city of Cannes last week, was overheard by a number of journalists after it was inadvertently transmitted over a system used for translation, media website Arret sur Images reported. "I can't stand him anymore, he's a liar," Sarkozy said in French during the talks. "You may be sick of him, but me, I have to deal with him every day," Obama replied in comments that were translated into French. A number of journalists have confirmed hearing the remarks.



Budget Australian airline Jetstar and Tourism New Zealand have signed a $9 million marketing deal to attract more visitors from Australia, Singapore, Japan and across the Asia region. The three-year agreement runs to mid-2014 and will see Tourism New Zealand and Jetstar each contribute $1.5m a year to various campaigns including consumer events as well as print, online and television advertising and social media activities. Jetstar brings more than 400,000 passengers to New Zealand each year and is now the largest low-cost airline in the Asia Pacific region by revenue. It last month announced a similar alliance with Tourism Australia which will cost $A10m over three years to also tap the burgeoning Asian market.



Police have released a photograph of a woman allegedly used by a man to pose as a woman online to get young men to expose themselves and commit sex acts. Christchurch man, Cameron Stuart Hore, 27, was arrested and charged with sexual exploitation, obtaining by deception and sexual grooming through online internet contact. The photo of the young woman holding a phone was on a Facebook page with the name Sarah Ruddenklau. "At this stage we don't know who this person is, or whether there is any connection to the name that was used," Detective Sergeant Scott Anderson of Christchurch South Police said. "If anyone can identify the person in this photograph we would be very interested in hearing from them." It is alleged he would then befriend some using the name Dan McPherson and offer between $1000 and $4000 to allow him to perform sexual acts upon them. Many males passed on details including their names, addresses, phone numbers and bank accounts, said Anderson, but the money was not paid.

Oamaru police are asking locals to be on the lookout for the unmanned jet ski that took off from a beach near Oamaru on Sunday afternoon and has not been seen since. Senior constable Bruce Dow, of Oamaru, said police were alerted to the runaway jet ski by a Temuka woman. She said she had got off the jet ski at Bushey Beach. However, the motor failed to stop and the jet ski headed out to sea at about six to seven knots. It was last seen heading south-east. "It had a full tank of petrol and could go for several hours," Mr Dow said. It is a Yamaha Superjet, stand up-style jet ski coloured dark blue with yellow and silver trim.



Federal agents at Chicago's O'Hare Airport averted "a potential catastrophic event" when they stopped a package containing a live military flare from being loaded onto a flight to Japan, a federal agency said. The Customs and Border Protection said the Vietnam War-era device, identified as an M49A1 phosphorous trip flare, was found in the mail as it was passing through the busy facility on Thursday. Brian Bell, a customs supervisor, said he did not know whether the package that contained the device would have been routed onto a passenger or cargo plane. The device, which burns at a temperature of 5000 degrees Fahrenheit, had been listed on the shipping manifest as a "military training dummie", the agency said.

軍事用の火炎放射器が郵便物として日本へ送られようとしたところ、連邦政府がそれを発見し発送を止めたようです。税関によると、その機器はヴェトナム戦争時代に使われた華氏5000度(摂氏2760度)の炎を生成できる”M49A1 phosphorous trip flare”という火器だったようです。おそらく、日本在住の人物がオンラインで購入したものではないかとみられています。


A woman wearing a little black dress and a fascinator jumped the barrier at Addington Raceway just before the New Zealand Trotting Cup began yesterday. The 32-year-old woman was quickly escorted off the track by security staff and was handed to police.

She had been charged with disorderly behaviour and would appear in the Christchurch District Court. The arrest was the only "full arrest" made at Cup Day, Prior said.




Schapelle Corby's insistence she knew nothing about the bag of marijuana found in her boogie board bag has been dealt another major blow with a new book detailing where the marijuana came from, how it got into her bag and her father's 30-year history of drug dealing. Sins of the Father by Sun-Herald journalist Eamonn Duff adds myriad details to the circumstances surrounding Australia's most polarising criminal cases since Lindy Chamberlain's conviction. Launching the book this morning, Allen and Unwin publisher Richard Walsh said: "Indonesians have said from the beginning she's a guilty person, we are saying to a domestic audience we agree." She was delivering it for Malcolm McCauley, the convicted South Australian drug dealer who visitied Corby in jail 18 days after she was arrested. Five months later, Eastwood was arrested delivering marijuana to far North Queensland on one of 15-20 runs she said she had made. Mick Corby died of cancer in 2008. Corby is seven years into a 20-year sentence in Bali's Kerobokan jail after she was arrested in 2004 with a 4.2-kilogram bag of marijuana shaped like a boogie board inside her boogie board bag. Corby's half-brother James Kisina, who was with her on the trip to Bali, was later jailed after he was involved in an assault and theft of drugs and money from a drug dealer.
