Google News New Zealand has been broken all day

http://news.google.co.nz/?topic=n
http://news.google.com/news?ned=nz&topic=n

Empty local news section.

I guess by the lack of action I must be the only person on the planet who noticed...

Maybe just a slow news week?

I gather that it worked before, and it's not simply Google being unable to properly seperate world news from local news in your country?

Still broken

4th of July long weekend or somesuch?

There's plenty of recent local news if I search for it, the section just seems to have broken.

Oh well, report the bug to Google and you might get a free t-shirt or even a mousemat if you're lucky

Note to self: Put pallet of 1000 Google mousemats on eBay.

Weird

That's strange. Has it been very quiet in NZ?

I'll ask someone about this.

One of my housemates has just emmigrated to NZ, I can confirm that nothing has happened - apart from some very dodgy "funny video" emails.

I believe everything should be fixed now, and has been fixed for a little while now.
