This program is captioned live. Welcome back to Ten's Early News on this Queen's birthday. A growing band of supporters await the Socceroos in Kaiserslautern where in just a few hours time they'll return to the World Cup. Entertainers, academics and a union official among scores of hard-working Aussies honoured this Queen's birthday long weekend. Services across the country to mark the 10th anniversary of one of the worst tragedies in Australian military history. And al-Qai'da warns of a new wave of revenge attacks Iraq after the death of its terror leader. Kath's back now with another look at all the market numbers. It should be a fairly quiet one on the local front with the ASX shut for the public holiday but investors should brace for a sell off on Tuesday.

From entertainers to football heroes, they've all been honoured as part of Queen's birthday celebrations. While Olivia Newton-John's appointed an Officer in the Order of Australia for her support of breast cancer treatment, Brad Fittler has been recognised for his service to rugby league.

You feel very proud, given the opportunity as a footballer I suppose

to put a few smiles on kids faces

Also honoured for his contribution to sport - John Coates from the Australian Olympic Committee. The Socceroos have a not-so-secret weapon in their first game at the World Cup. When Guus Hiddink's men walk into the stadium against Japan they'll be greeted by a sea of green and gold. Socceroos, help is on its way. Frankfurt is the latest German city to get a taste of green and gold mania, the 7,000 strong fanatics rolling into town. They've come prepared for the month long festival of football, tired but ready for the challenge. You find it from somewhere no matter how tired you are, definitely. We've got a few songs for the boys.

Little Australia, where they've been toasting Socceroo success. We're here and happy about qualifying although a couple of rivals wanted to make sure Aussie fans never forget the pain of the past.

Don't forget '97, don't forget '97. Iran, Iran. Cheeky, mate, that was cheeky. A special train they've dubbed the Aussie Express will see these passionate supporters to Kaiserslautern, most are ready to give their all. Oh, I've still got to learn the words. This is what awaits the Socceroos and their growing band of supporters, a hearty welcome in Kaiserslautern.

It's pretty quite now. Up to 10,000 Aussies are about the change all that.

A Gold Coast man will face court today charged over the attempted murder of a New Zealander at Main Beach. Police arrested the 28-year-old late yesterday, it's alleged he shot the man and left him to die on the side of the road. The 30-year-old victim was found in a pool of blood suffering several gunshot wounds to his limbs and torso. He remains in a critical condition in hospital. Remembrance services will be held across the country today to mark the 10th anniversary of the Black Hawk helicopter disaster.

18 Australians were killed in the counter-terrorism exercise in 1996 in which two defence force helicopters collided near Townsville. Most of those killed were from Perth. Human rights activists are stepping up their fight to get Guantanamo Bay detention centre shut down after three inmates hanged themselves. But US officials are calling the suicides a PR stunt

to further the Jihadi cause. Camp 1 at Guantanamo Bay - a maximum security area and where the bodies of the detainees were found. Each in a separate cell, each had hanged himself using clothes and bedsheets.

Left behind three notes in Arabic. But such is the sensitivity surrounding America's treatment of its detainees that the Pentagon was quick to stress

that all proper procedures were being followed. The remains of the deceased are being treated with the upmost respect.

A cultural advisor is assisting a joint task force to ensure that the remains are handled in a culturally and religiously appropriate manner. Guantanamo had been under intense scrutiny since it opened. There are 460 prisoners being held. Only 10 have been charged as terror suspects.

25 inmates have attempted suicide. Human rights groups warn there is growing despair amongst prisoners, The White House insists its ultimate aim is to empty Guantanamo. But for now it stays open. Its inmates still viewed as dangerous posing a serious threat to America. Supporters of slain terrorist leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi are warning of a new wave of major attacks across Iraq. In a message posted on the internet al-Qai'da is vowing to avenge the death of its leader and has renewed its allegiance to Osama bin Laden. Coalition forces say they are prepared for a string of attacks

and have stepped up security measures across the country. British pop icon Robbie Williams is promising Irish fans a free show after a stunt at his concert went wrong.

Robbie was performing in front of a sell-out crowd of 80,000 in Dublin when he was left suspended in mid-air after a mechanical stuff up. But the former Take That singer made up for it by performing some of his old favourites. It was the first concert of his world tour.

Holland are off to a winning start in the World Cup. The orange army secured their Group C match with a goal in the 18th minute.

In Nuremberg, Mexico scored twice late in the second half to start their campaign in stunning fashion. Socceroo coach Guus Hiddink is furious over claims made by the Association boss of our first up opponents Japan who say Australia play dirty. Hiddink has described the comments as irresponsible and designed to influence the referees.

The Wallabies have beaten England 34-3 in a scrappy opening to the domestic test season in Sydney last night. Coach John Connolly passing his first test in the top job thanks to three second half tries, but he admits there's still plenty of work to be done.

I think a lot more pluses came out than minuses. I think we're a new team, a new coaching team. It was a bit of a jump into the unknown but it gives us a line in the sand where we can work from. Test rookie Rodney Blake capped his debut with a memorable 5-pointer. While skipper George Gregan was busy saving tries in his record-equalling 119th test. Carlton has fallen agonisingly short

of scoring one of the greatest upsets in AFL history. They were the longest priced outsiders of all time against the West Coast Subiaco

but almost silenced the Perth crowd when they led by 44 points in the third quarter. Then eight Eagle goals to two in the final term produced a stunning victory. And the Western Bulldogs 14 point win over Fremantle was overshadowed by a knee injury to Chris Grant.

Kath's here again,

and claims we're being charged even more for fuel? As if higher prices over the long weekend weren't bad enough,

now motorists may be forced to pay an extra charge. In New South Wales, people who pay for petrol with their credit cards are being slugged an extra $2.50 in fees and charges. Those working in the industry defend the charges saying they're entitled to collect the extra charges.

Petrol prices around the country have spiked in recent weeks, despite world crude oil prices falling sharply. The 2006 snow season has opened with impressive falls

and even more impressive forecasts. The industry turned over $1.3-billion in New South Wales,

Victoria and Tasmania last year. Officials hope to top that this time round. The same goes for the 1,750 jobs created. Thredbo has a new $2-million snow-making machine. And the Snowy Hydro is for a third year involved in cloud seeding - a science experiment to see if adding silver iodine to the atmosphere boosts snowfalls.

Weather: Australian's honoured in the Queen's birthday awards. We'll take you through the list when Ten's Early News returns.
