Irresistible Headline

"Pigeons Detained Amid Risk of Coo"  (slightly paraphrased)

It's hard to imagine NZ journalist with enough brains to dream up such a glorious headline.

Only in the WSJ Asian edition will you find such erudition.

Anyway, it seems those bad bastards from Pakistan are using carrier pigeons to assist in plotting an attempted coup in India.  Fortunately the good buggers found out and nabbed the feathered flutterers.  You see, not even Google can tell you where these phone dodging chaps have been.

An X-ray of a pigeon captured by Indian authorities on suspicion of espionage.

It is understood all the information gathered from a spate of bird captures has been pigeon holed for further reference.
