New Zealand police question boys over fatal stabbing
(06-10 14:00)


New Zealand police are questioning two boys, aged 12 and 13, over the fatal stabbing of a shopkeeper in Auckland.
Police said the boys were taken into custody after Arun Kumar, 57, was stabbed in the neck early this morning.
They said officers were called to reports of a robbery at the shop in suburban Henderson and found Kumar seriously injured. Attempts to save him failed.
Detective-inspector Bruce Scott said the boys, who were known to the police, were picked up a short time later.
''It is shocking to us that kids so young could be involved, or possibly involved, in something like this,'' he said, saying nothing was taken in the apparent robbery gone wrong.
No charges have been laid.
