In Australia, an 18th Century cottage that originally belonged to the family of explorer Captain James Cook has been sprayed with graffiti.

The building was defaced with the slogan "26th Jan Australia's shame", in reference to Australia Day on Monday.

Opponents of the holiday call it "Invasion Day," saying the day celebrates the wrongful seizing of the land from Aborigines by colonists.

Russell Trott reports.
