Prosecutors in New Zealand have accused a group of Maori activists arrested on Oct. 15 of planning a violent campaign against the country’s white majority. Prosecutors allege one of the defendants sent mobile phone text messages saying he was going to declare war and that white men would die. The man, Jamie Lockett, said his words had been taken out of context. Police arrested 17 people, during anti-terror raids targeting Maori and environmental activists. (BBC)
