journalist death still poses questions, 10 years on

New Zealand's main daily paper, the New Zealand Herald, has published a rare article on the Pacific Islands, in this case regarding the tenth anniversary of a journalist killed in French Polynesia.

"It has all the hallmarks of a spy thriller. The setting is the idyllic South Pacific island of Tahiti and the plot concerns a journalist who knows too much, and is drowned by government agents.His wife, who is having an affair with his friend, readily accepts the death was a suicide."
The report was filed by the Australian Associated Press, and is only the second article by the New Zealand Herald on Couraud, the first last being back in November 2004. read more digg story
