Authorities investigate whether police ambush was planned



Authorities investigate whether the Queensland Police ambush was planned, as a community mourns.

Tragedy in Australia with two police officers and an innocent bystander killed, in what has been described as a senseless attack.

Investigations are continuing into how exactly this incident unfolded.

Police were attending a routine missing-person inquiry on a remote Queensland property, three hours west of Brisbane.

Ambushed with heavy gunfire as soon as they set foot on the property, it’s now clear they didn’t stand a chance.

The key questions are whether the officers were lured into a trap and whether this whole ordeal was planned from the very start.

Queensland’s Police Commissioner Katarina Carroll says investigators will focus in on the online presence of the attackers.

They were both shot dead following a mammoth six-hour siege.

Graphic body camera footage will be used to piece together how Constables Matthew Arnold and Rachel McCrow, as well as bystander and neighbour, Alan Dare, died.

Thousands moved by lives taken too soon

The attackers were seemingly well-armed. Additionally, the property itself had a security camera system set up to alert them if anyone entered the boundary.

The Commissioner told the ABC’s 7.30 program police will “get to the bottom” of what happened.

“We’re definitely investigating every avenue. We will investigate what they have been doing not only in recent weeks, but in recent years. Who have they been interacting with, family, friends, their online presence,” the Commissioner said.

“I know that the officer in charge also spoke to them, so they were quite comfortable going out to the property and in fact, from what I understand, quite jovial and having fun with each other. For us, this was a standard job.”

A community and a nation in mourning. Authorities trying to work out exactly what happened and how these two young Constables lost their lives.

China and the U.S. now caught up in a deadly game



As the U.S. and Chinese defence bosses spoke in Beijing, many in the room realised one thing – the two are far from ready to talk.

A thinly veiled criticism of the United States was delivered by Chinese Defence Minister General Li Shangfu.

In his first public statement to an international audience since becoming defence minister in March, Li highlighted China’s Global Security Initiative, a set of foreign policy principles and directions in line with Beijing’s style of diplomacy, which was announced in April last year by Chinese President Xi Jinping.

“It practises exceptionalism and double standards and only serves the interests and follows the rules of a small number of countries,” he told Asia’s biggest defence conference.

Among them are opposition to unilateral sanctions and economic development as a means of stemming instability and conflict.

“Its so-called rules-based international order never tells you what the rules are, and who made these rules,” Li said in a speech to the Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore, without naming the US or its partners.
