but a CEO's pay packet actually fell? Yes, Bill.

As profits fall so, too, are the pay packets of top Qantas executives But they're still doing pretty well. Chief Executive Geoff Dixon saw his salary cut by nearly 20% last year

after the airline reported a 30% fall in full-year profits. But the Qantas boss is still doing pretty well, last year Mr Dixon took home $5.2 million - down from nearly $6.5 million in the previous year. Some good news at last for motorists, petrol prices may be on the way down. Experts are tipping fuel could slide to $1 a litre in the new year. The oil price falling because there were no major hurricanes in the US and the Middle East has calmed down. We are going to see more crude oil on the market, more refining capacity so there's potential that the oil price could fall further, that meaning the petrol price could fall to perhaps in the order of $1-$1.10 a litre.

Oil industry figures dispute claims that global supplies are running out. Let's take a look at the national weather: Now for a look at Tuesday's newspapers - in the Melbourne 'Age' - a convicted drug trafficker holds answers to a 9-year-old murder mystery. Former US president Al Gore applauds South Australia's focus on renewable energy. That story in the Adelaide 'Advertiser'. And in Sydney's 'Daily Telegraph' - the city's deadly smog

contributing to the deaths of 1,400 people per year. Relatives of those killed in the September 11 attacks pause to remember the fifth anniversary. We'll have the latest when the Early News returns.

This program is captioned live. Welcome back to Ten's Early News. This morning - poignant services across America to mark the fifth anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks. On the run and on the defensive - East Timor's renegade leader denies claims he's out to kill Australian troops.

The Howard Government to hold off selling the country's biggest private health insurer reportedly until after the next election.

And in sport -

Collingwood's Brodie Holland to face the tribunal tonight to challenge a six-match ban for rough conduct. Time for another check of the markets now, here's Kath. Bill, thank you. Well, a late rally on Wall Street has pushed stocks back in the black. Medibank Private sell-off on hold until after the Federal election. I'll have more shortly. America has commemorated the fifth anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks. Australians are among those honouring the nearly 3,000 people killed. It was a day for America to remember its victims and heros. One by one the names of the 2,749 people who were killed in the World Trade Centre were read out. Families only pausing to mark the time that the planes hit and the towers collapsed.

Dorry Tompsett's Australian husband, Stephen, was one of the 10 Aussies killed. He never told me how bad it was.

He was in the north tower for a business meeting and emailed her asking what happened.

Stephen died 11 days before his daughter Emily's 10th birthday. He's not here. Sydney mother Jacquelin van Deinsen lost her daughter Lesley Anne Thomas. The 40-year-old was at work on the 105th floor of the north tower. The world's lost a very special young woman. The bodies of 1,100 victims of the World Trade Center attack have never been identified. Today, bells echoed across the city in their honour. Victims of the terrorist attacks on the Pentagon and on flight 93, which crashed in Pennsylvania, are also being honoured at memorials. In the United States, Leisa Goddard-Roles, Ten News. Australia's political leaders say the fight against terrorism must unite the world. Both the Prime Minister and Opposition Leader say the war will last generations. This is a challenge that will outlast, I am afraid to say, the political careers of both the PM and myself. The Prime Minister has called on all Islamic leaders to condemn terrorism.

But he maintains Australia is now safer than it was five years ago. East Timorese rebel leader Alfredo Reinado has denied claims he'll fight Australian troops. It comes as Federal police admit they've all but given up on recapturing the prison escapee. This amateur footage was taken from a secret location shortly after Alfredo Reinado broke out of a Dili jail. Two weeks later, he's still on the run. In his first face-to-face interview with a foreign journalist, the rebel leader refutes claims he'll shoot Australian soldiers. He says his comments aired on SBS last week were taken out of context. When they come after me, I will stop them and shoot them back, because I have a right to protect myself in my country. While the prison escapee maintains he reserves the right to defend himself, he says he has a good relationship with the Australian military. He's urging international security forces

to concentrate on catching other criminals who are worse than him. Australia's Federal Police conceding they lack the numbers to track him down. Kate Donnison, Ten News. There are reports this morning pollution in Sydney is so bad,

it contributes to the deaths of 1,400 people each year. 'The Daily Telegraph' says the city's smog has proven fatal for asthmatics and those suffering respiratory or cardio-vascular illnesses. The paper says the dirty air has also contributed to a small number of lung cancer deaths. The results were revealed at a public inquiry into the health complications from Sydney's pollution. The body of racing legend Peter Brock is expected to make its final journey home today. Participants and officials from the rally Brock died in have joined together to remember the 'king of the mountain'. An outpouring of emotion as members of Australia's tight-knit motor sports community farewelled one of their own. Peter Brock's brother, partner, a son and daughter in Perth for the memorial service. I'm really in turmoil.

Not a happy reason to come here and I love this place but I didn't want to be here for this. Brock died near Perth last Friday during the Targa West rally. Last night's memorial service a chance for the grieving to remember the fallen legend. That means so much to us, knowing he left this world being so happy. A state funeral will reportedly be held for the 'king of the mountain'

in Melbourne's St Paul's Cathedral early next week with a public memorial at Sandown Raceway the following weekend. Organisers of the Bathurst 1,000 may name its trophy in his honour. Christopher Still, Ten News. Thousands of well-wishers have turned out to welcome home the Pope to his birthplace in southern Germany. Pope Benedict, relaxed and smiling, took his time shaking hands with people in the crowd and has prayed at St Oswald's, the church where he was baptised 79 years ago. Earlier, he celebrated Mass in front of 70,000 people. His 6-day tour will also take in the town where he was ordained a priest. Tony Blair has promised to help with reconstruction efforts

on a visit to Lebanon. It's the first time a British PM has travelled to the country but his support for Israel during the recent conflict saw him face some noisy protesters.

If welcome to Beirut. They shout.

That owed much care when he goes. That owed much care when he goes. The

revenge for British support for revenge for British support for a war

that killed over 1200 of their

citizens. A news conference with the citizens. A news conference with the

Lebanese Prime Minister had men at

thrift. There never was going to be a

cessation unless it was done on the

basis of the United Nations

resolution. That is the reality. What resolution. That is the reality. What

Tony Blair did not receive is what

remains of a that country. remains of a that country. Hizbollah

is seen as heroic defenders of their

country but Tony Blair sees as country but Tony Blair sees as

seraphs. The Prime Minister invited

Blair to visit even though war was raging. Collingwood will fight the harshest penalty of the year when midfielder Brodie Holland fronts the tribunal tonight to challenge a six-match ban. Holland was suspended for rough conduct during the Magpie's elimination final loss to the Western Bulldogs. COMMENTATOR: Brodie Holland! What an unbelievable start to this game. But West Coast's Daniel Chick has avoided any sanction

and is free to play in the Eagles semi-final against the Bulldogs at Subiaco on Saturday. The St George Illawarra medical staff will continue to work around the clock to have Mark Gasnier fit for Friday night's match against Manly. Gasnier was ruled out of the game yesterday but some believe he'll play. Mark Gasnier has already been ruled out of Friday's semi-final against Manly with a hip flexor injury, but not all are convinced. In round 20 he made a last-minute appearance after being ruled out. Even Gasnier concedes he's a chance. I'll play if I can - simple as that. If I think I can play, I'll definitely play. Another injured international, Brisbane's Karmichael Hunt,

who strained his hamstring and missed Saturday night's loss against the Dragons. But he is expected to suit up against Newcastle this Saturday night. The Broncos denying Wayne Bennett's coaching future has been a distraction. We don't even think about it. Bennett could be leaving. We've just burried it and try to get on with each week. Rob Canning, Ten News. Time for more finance and Kath, the Medibank sale on ice? It looks likely the Government will hold off selling the country's biggest private health insurer

until after the next Federal election. 'The Financial Review' says the Government has been warned by bankers advising it on the Telstra sale that if it proceeds with the Medibank sell-off, the T3 float would be put at risk. The decision to postpone the sale comes as a new AC Nielsen poll reveals almost two-thirds of Australians don't support the Government's planned sale of Medibank. And more bad news for Telstra with the ACCC issuing a draft decision rejecting its latest attempt to charge rivals more for using its network. The phone giant had wanted to increase the amount it charged rivals for them to make long distance and land-line to mobile calls. The competition watchdog said Telstra's pricing proposals

would significantly disadvantage some rival operators. Telstra shares ended two cents lower at $3.54 on the news. Let's take a look at the national weather: Services around the world mark the 5th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. We'll have the details after this break.

The make-up of Peter Beattie's new Queensland ministry will be unveiled at a Labor caucus meeting today. The Premier has added four new faces to his senior team - as it embarks on an historic fourth term - including former child safety minister Mike Reynolds as the speaker of the parliament. Labor is likely to retain its 16-seat majority with 60 MPs in the 89-seat parliament. Meantime, no word from Opposition Leader Lawrence Springborg on whether he'll recontest the Nationals leadership. Liberals Leader Bruce Flegg has the PM's support to press on. TV personality Adriana Xenides is due to be sentenced today for dangerous and negligent driving. The former star of 'Wheel of Fortune' pleaded guilty in July to charges arising from a head-on collision last year in Sydney. The crash put her in in hospital and seriously injured the other driver.

She blames a sneezing fit for the accident but faces a possible jail term. East Timorese rebel leader Alfredo Reinado has denied claims he'll fight Australian troops. While the prison escapee reserves the right to defend himself, he says he has a good relationship with the Australian military and was taken out of context in a recent interview. Reinado has been on the run for almost two weeks after escaping from a Dili prison with 56 other inmates. Australian and UN police conceding they lack the numbers to track him down.

Princess Mary's baby has been formally recognised as having a claim to the Danish throne. The country's foreign minister has signed a document acknowledging 11-month-old Christian as a rightful future heir.

He's second in line, after his father, Frederik. The Western Bulldog's Brad Johnson was named captain of the 2006 All-Australian side at last night's gala event in Melbourne. Ten players earned selection in the coveted team for the first time.

His stunning year continues. A finals campaign for the first time in six years, runner-up in the Coleman medal and now one of the highest honours of all. Brad Johnson named All-Australian captain.

You work as hard as you can and hopefully you get individual rewards at the end of it. Sydney's Barry Hall is vice captain, while West Coast's Ben Cousins earns his sixth All-Australian honour. The Eagles and Swans have the most representatives - each with four. To the rest of the day's news,

Captain Ponting in a confident mood.

this time crossing the floor to vote in support of a bill that would give the ACC more power to monitor the petrol industry. Meantime, there are fresh predictions

we could see petrol prices fall to around $1 by early next year

after another fall in the price of crude oil. For once, it appears, Christmas has come early. Petrol doom and gloom a month ago seems a distant memory. Gone - prices peaking close to a $1.50 a litre, now, a better outlook. We were looking at $1.15 by Christmas. That forecast looks as though it's just being realised somewhat early. that prediction two weeks ago. Craig James was criticised for making But with oil hitting a 5-month low, he says it could fall further in the first half of next year. We are going to see more crude oil on the market and more refining capacity,

so there's potential that the oil price could fall further, that meaning the petrol price could fall to $1.00, $1.10 a litre.

The oil price is falling because there were no major hurricanes in the US and the Middle East has calmed down. It's given a senior oil industry figure the confidence to attack the theory that supplies are running out. There's about 3 trillion barrels of recoverable oil in the world and, to date, we've only used about a third of that And beyond that, technology, we are confident, will continue to find more.

Eddy Meyer, Ten News. Now let's take a look at some of the other stories making business news.

because I have a right to protect myself in my country. While the prison escapee maintains he reserves the right to defend himself, he says he has a good relationship with the Australian military. He's urging international security forces to concentrate on catching other criminals who are worse than him. Australia's Federal Police conceding they lack the numbers

to track him down. Kate Donnison, Ten News. A medical tribunal hearing of allegations of malpractice against a convicted abortion doctor continues in Sydney today. Suman Sood is facing 11 complaints relating to five patients between 1998 and 2002. Two of the complaints involve the illegal abortion conviction

where Sood was found to have given a woman, 6-months pregnant, a pill that caused her to give birth on the toilet. She'll be sentenced on that later this week.

Sood has decided not to contest the malpractice and dishonesty allegations. There are reports this morning pollution in Sydney is so bad, it contributes to the deaths of 1,400 people each year. 'The Daily Telegraph' says the city's smog has proven fatal for asthmatics and those suffering respiratory or cardio-vascular illnesses. The paper says the dirty air has also contributed to a small number of lung cancer deaths. Space shuttle 'Atlantis' has docked with the International Space Station ending a twoday journey through space. 'Atlantis' performed a dramatic 360-degree flip as it approached so the crew of the space station could survey the shuttle's underbelly for damage.

Seven foam pieces fell off when 'Atlantis' left the atmosphere but NASA officials don't believe they caused any significant damage. 'Atlantis' and its crew are there to help with construction at the Space Station - three space walks are planned. Tragedy has struck former 'Playboy' playmate Anna Nicole Smith just days after the birth of her baby daughter. Her adult son, Daniel, has died in the Bahamas.

Collingwood will fight the harshest penalty of the year when midfielder Brodie Holland fronts the tribunal tonight to challenge a six-match ban. Holland was suspended for rough conduct during the Magpie's elimination final loss to the Western Bulldogs. COMMENTATOR: Brodie Holland! What an unbelievable start to this game. But West Coast's Daniel Chick has avoided any sanction and is free to play in the Eagles semi-final against the Bulldogs at Subiaco on Saturday. The St George Illawarra medical staff will continue to work around the clock to have Mark Gasnier fit for Friday night's match against Manly. Gasnier was ruled out of the game yesterday

but some believe he'll play. Mark Gasnier has already been ruled out of Friday's semi-final against Manly with a hip flexor injury,

but not all are convinced. In round 20 he made a last-minute appearance after being ruled out.

Even Gasnier concedes he's a chance. I'll play if I can - simple as that. If I think I can play, I'll definitely play. Another injured international, Brisbane's Karmichael Hunt, who strained his hamstring and missed Saturday night's loss against the Dragons. But he is expected to suit up against Newcastle this Saturday night.

The Broncos denying Wayne Bennett's coaching future has been a distraction. We don't even think about it.

Bennett could be leaving. We've just burried it and try to get on with each week. Rob Canning, Ten News. Time for more finance and Kath, the Medibank sale on ice? It looks likely the Government will hold off selling the country's biggest private health insurer until after the next Federal election. 'The Financial Review' says the Government has been warned by bankers advising it on the Telstra sale that if it proceeds with the Medibank sell-off, the T3 float would be put at risk. The decision to postpone the sale comes as a new AC Nielsen poll reveals almost two-thirds of Australians don't support the Government's planned sale of Medibank. A late rally on Wall Street has pushed stocks back in the black.

Well, they're at it again.

Those magnificent men in their flying machines

attempting to defy gravity in the annual Birdman flying contest. A lack of wind didn't help competitors putting their various contraptions to the test. And there's no room for chickens when you're taking a leap of faith. Top honours, though, went to English hang glider Tony Hughes soaring 84 metres.

Let's take a look at the national weather: A quick recap of the morning's top stories - and the names of the 10 Australians killed in the 9/11 terror attacks have been read out at memorial services in America.
