The drummer of the hard rock group AC/DC, Phil Rudd, has been charged by New Zealand police with attempting to arrange a murder. Mr Rudd, who was born in Australia, will also face charges of possessing the drugs methamphetamine and cannabis, and of threatening to kill. The musician's house in Taraunga, on New Zealand's North Island, was raided on Thursday morning. AC/DC is due to release a new album later this year. The band's guitarist, Malcolm Young, was recently diagnosed with dementia. Mr Rudd, 60, was kicked out of the band in 1983 and rejoined in 1994.
