New Zealand bodies in suitcase: Woman arrested in S Korea over children's deaths

South Korean police say they have arrested a woman accused of murdering her two children who were found in suitcases in New Zealand last month.

In a case that shocked the country, the bodies were discovered by strangers who had bought the abandoned suitcases from a storage unit in Auckland.

The bodies were believed to have been stored for a few years. Korean police said the victims were aged 7 and 10.

New Zealand has applied for the woman's extradition from South Korea.
