and that we need a change. And that go away, we're going to keep coming back. It's the

principle, it's can rally this many people principle, it's the idea you

can rally this many people and

we can stand strong as a

community and that's what's

important and it's about not

like we're saying oh, our

circumstances, we shouldn't

care everything's fine in Melbourne, it's about this

global issue that is really

relevant to empb because it's

how we think, it's how we care

about the rest of the world or

not care and yeah, it's got the

you believe in it you've got to

be here and come what may. I'm not going to be pushing and

hitting and,io u know, throwing myself at the feet of the

police. If they say it's

to leave I'm going to go cool,

it's time to leave. But until

then I stand for this because

we believe in it. We were peaceful protestors yesterday.

We pretty much wanted to keep

our sphais so we could have a peaceful demonstration. Unfortunately the Unfortunately the police came

out in massive force, we were people had their faces smashed, pepper sprayed at the same time

as what we're trying to do is

have a say and I think that's

what we're going to do today. Have another peaceful rally and

march and hopefully the police aren't as brutal as they were yesterday. Negotiations are

after the euphoric night before. Tripoli is quiet, before. Tripoli is quiet, in places almost deserted. But

it's far from subdued. it's far from subdued. The

atmosphere is extraordinary. Optimistic, generous, open, b

relaxed. It's as though has been lifted. But the hard

work in transforming Libya

begins now. It's a big change from dictatorship to a

democratic country, to a

country and it's not - it doesn't happen overnight. It

takes a lot of time to train the people, to teach the

people, to upgrade the society. Within 30 days from

The most immediate concern is

security, the place is security, the place is awash

with weapons. This was a bottom up revolution. The streets up revolution. The streets are

controlled by the militias who liberated them. They won the

war, they don't intend to lose

the peace. "God willing," he

told me, "The Libya we want is democratic, we want to be free

to express ourselves freely, that's the kind of Libya want." The NTC must make sure that the expectations of that the expectations of the

the potential for armed revolt is obvious. But already the security situation is visibly changing. Today we found this group of recent recruits to group of recent recruits to the

new national security service,

former militia men now being welded into a single with which Libya has already moved on from the last regime. The revolution has unleashed

enormous expectations here. But

Libya is best placed to begin realising those

expectations. And this is one

reason why. Before the uprising

Libya with just 6 million people was producing 2% of the people was producing 2% of the

world's oil. The infrastructure has not been seriously damaged. Production is already back to a

quarter of what it was. Managed well, this wealth could help

transform lives here. Libya transform lives here. Libya has

tribal divisions, yes, but

there's little sign of tribal

antagonism. The will to succeed

here is a powerful unifier. There may be bitter

disagreements ahead but disagreements ahead but Lybians

for now are relishing this moment of promise. At least 13

people have been killed in

President Barack Obama says all

US forces will be from Iraq by the end of the

year. More than 8 years after

the US invasion. President Obama's announcement Obama's announcement came after

he held a video conference with

the Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri

al-Maliki. Le says removing US

forces from Iraq has been forces from Iraq has been one

of his key goals. After taking

office I announced a strategy that would end our combat mission in Iraq and

remove all of our troops by

tend of the 2011. As commander

in chief, ensuring the success of the strategy of the strategy has been one of my highest national my highest national security priorities. Last year I

announced the end to our combat

mission in Iraq and to date we've removed more than 100,000

troops. Iraqis have taken full responsibility for their

country's security. A few hours

ago I spoke Minister Maliki. I reaffirmed

that the United States keeps

its commitments. He spoke of

the determination of the Iraqi people to forge their own future. We are in full

agreement about how to move

forward. So today I can report

that as promised the rest of

our troops in Iraq will come

home by the end of the year.

After nearly 9 years America's war in Iraq will be Corp shareholders have re-elected Rupert Murdoch and his sons to run the media

giant. But the company won't be

releasing the actual results of the vote until next the vote until next week. It's

the first time Murdoch met with shareholders since News shareholders since News Corp

faced a mobile phone faced a mobile phone hacking scandal inquiry in July. Protestors chanted

outside Fox stud Yose in Los

Angeles as a contentious News Corporation scandal

meeting got under way. Company chairman and Murdoch has been on the

defensive since revelisations of mobile phone hacking by

employees of his 'News of the

World' paper in Britain. The scandal rocked of Prime Minister David Cameron

and spurred resignation of government officials and high-level police officers. high-level police officers. No

cameras were allowed inside but

on an audio feed Murdoch was heard apologising for heard apologising for the scandal once again. There scandal once again. There is

simply no excuse for such unethical behaviour. Some California teachers California teachers retirement system, voted in favour of

ousting Murdoch from his chairmanship. We want to push

for an independent chairman because if they have a CEO who stays in there we need stays in there we need a representative on that representative on that board not just for the interests of the family but all the

shareholders. But Murdoch, who

with his allies, controls

almost half the company's

voting shares, dismissed calls

for corporate governance reform, reform, disappointing activist shareholders. Rupert is clearly

in the bunker. This was most undemocratic annual

meeting I've seen after 12 different encounters with

Rupert since 1999 and I think he's really quite paranoid. British paranoid. British parliament member Tom Watson says more scandalous News

warned Bangkok residents to move their possessions to higher ground as flood higher ground as flood waters

begin to seep into residential areas of the capital.

Businesses and residents are

preparing for the worst using

sandbags to fortify shopping

centres and office buildings.

Zoe Daniel reports from the Thai capital. This is

of Bangkok and it's only really

now that we're starting to see businesses here fortifying

their properties against this

flooding. We were told flooding. We were told a week ago that central Bangkok would

definitely be safe, then the

Government had to retract that

and say that the city could see

some flooding and now Yingluck Shinawatra, the Prime Minister,

has said that everyone in

Bangkok should protect their

property and move belongings to

higher ground. The simple fact is that the Government is that the Government has failed to control that flood

water that is moving from flood barriers greack -

breaking and areas being un -

inundated around the city. The Government's had to admit that

it can't control that water,

that the longer it tries to stop it with sandbag stop it with sandbag barriers the deeper it's getting and the

more likely it will be to actually break down those

defences. Some Bangkok defences. Some Bangkok canal s have been opened to try to

release some of that water through the city before more water arrives north of Thailand over the

weekend. So now people here in

central Bangkok aren't quite

sure if water's coming, sure if water's coming, when

it's coming or how deep it be. But they really have no choice but to make some

preparations and people have definitely been, for example,

stocking up on food and water supplies and now are

sandbagging their properties. Zoe Daniel

now there's been no alternative

to the GPS satellite positioning system operated by the US military. That's about

to change. Europe is launching

its own global positioning

system and for the first time

it's using Russian rockets to

help get its satellites into

orbit. For the last 4 years in the sticky jungle of French

Guyana hundreds of engineers from one of the coldest kun trshlings on earth have been

building this - a launch site

for Russian rocket ts to blast

off in partnership with off in partnership with the

European space agency, ESA.

It's the first time a Russian

Soyuz rocket has ever lifted

off from outside the former Soviet Union. The first cargo, the first two satellites for Europe's answer to America's system. In Moscow they watched

anxiously as Russia's Soyuz work horse carried into space

the beginning of Europe's independence. Because it's a

political and stroo - strategic

asset which we need for ourselves. The European's

Galileo plan calls for as many

as 30 satellites. ESA has one of the most powerful rockets in

the world but it's expensive.

To save money they turned to the tried the tried and true soy yus to get mid size cargo into orbit.

TRANSLATION: They're getting a

cheap rocket that is already operational. Galileo enjoys an

increasingly crowded field of

GPS. Russia has spent billions

launching its own network and

China's space ambitions also include the satellite

positioning system. Galileo is

now relying on the EU to foot

its nearly $7 its nearly $7 billion

budget. And I think it is more

important to have it than to

count the money you in with it. But this moment was

about celebration from South America to the EU to Russia.
