And more reports:

Four Wellington peace activists appeared in court this afternoon, were remanded in custody and had their names suppressed on firearms charges which are alleged to have been committed in Rotorua over the last 10 months. The court appearances were attended by a large number of supporters of the accused, all of whom appeared to be at a loss to understand what was going on.
