Prime Minister John Key has confirmed few details and refused to answer most questions about a news story claiming "suspicious" activities of several groups of Israelis following the February 22 Christchurch earthquake.

The Southland Times this morning reported that the activities of a number of Israelis following Christchurch's earthquake February raised the suspicions of the Security Intelligence Service (SIS) and sparked an investigation into the possibility the police national computer may have been hacked.

Mr Key, currently on tour in the US, this morning said it was "not in the national interest" to give details of any SIS inquiry.

Due to an increasing amount of unpublishable comments, this discussion thread is now closed for comments.
