More water trouble:

Two men have been arrested over a stabbing attack on a group of six people at Sydney’s Bondi Beach.

The five males and a female were injured after one group, described as being of Middle Eastern or Mediterranean appearance, set upon the other about midnight, police said.

At least the police approach ban has been lifted:

Police were ordered not to approach convoys of men of Middle Eastern appearance who were heading towards beachside suburbs to take revenge for the Cronulla riots …

Assistant Commissioner Bob Waites told the Herald that a log entry of the commander’s order was kept, revealing that he said: “Cars of Middle Eastern persons are not to be approached, just advise … registration number and location.”

Before the commander’s radio order that night police made an operational decision not to disperse a crowd of Middle Eastern men who gathered in Punchbowl Park, so as not to antagonise them.

Wouldn’t want to do that.
