Tourist in Wheelchair Attacked, Beaten

AFP: Two Australian teenagers have been charged over a vicious attack on a disabled Canadian tourist who was knocked out of his wheelchair and battered with a metal bar, police said on Thursday. The two, aged 15 and 16, were both charged with grievous bodily harm and robbery armed with an offensive weapon following Tuesday's incident, which has made headlines in the victim's home country.

Correction, they are not "two Australian teenagers", the younger of the two is facing deportation back to New Zealand. I don't the nationality of the other one, but from the CCTV footage, it's a fair bet the other is also Polynesian, if not a Maori.
