Raw video: NZ soldiers' bodies arrive home

Two grieving families watched from a dimly-lit runway as the bodies of Lance Corporals Pralli Durrer and Rory Malone arrived home to New Zealand. The pair, their caskets each covered in a New Zealand flag, flowers, their hat and a single framed photo, were carried off a United States Air Force C-17 in Christchurch late last night. It was the first time their families could be reunited with the men, who were killed in a gun battle in Afghanistan at the weekend.
