    Nine rare and valuable Victoria Cross (VC) medals awarded for acts of extreme bravery in combat have been stolen from a military museum in New Zealand.

    The thieves managed to evade security patrols, cameras and an alarm when they broke into the Army Museum in Waiouru on North Island early on Sunday.

    Defence Minister Phil Goff called the raid "a crime against the nation".

    Military officials estimate the medals are worth millions of dollars, but say they will be difficult to sell.
