A devout Jew was preparing himself for daily prayers, the way devout Jews do.
Some dumbarse Kiwi reported to the ship's skipper that the Jew was about to detonate a bomb.
TV3 embellished the story:-
An Israeli man was being spoken to police at Picton police station this afternoon after the incident, which was being played down by police.
TV3 earlier reported that the Kaitaki Interislander ferry's captain had been taken hostage by a man in possession of explosives and possibly a gun.
What else needs to be said?
Fuckwits making up news for fuckwits.
