A wild brawl that left a security guard needing facial surgery has been captured on camera. The guard was set upon by a group of men at Melbourne's Bridie O'Reilly's pub. Staff and patrons who came to his aid were pounded aside. The onslaught only ended when the attackers left the premises. A man and a woman have been questioned. No charges have yet been laid. Calls for Muslim burqas to be banned from shopping centres have been embraced with open arms. A shock-jock says if motorcyclists have to take their helmets off, why shouldn't veiled women? Back on the air at 4BC, offensive or not. We're talking about face coverings. It's the topic that caused a storm after Michael Smith told listeners how the sight of a woman in full burqa frightened his daughter inside a Sydney shopping centre. I found the behaviour of those people to be offensive and, honest to God, if I'd still been a copper I'd consider charging those people with offensive behaviour. That comment drew fire. That's the silliest thing I've ever heard. We live in a free and democratic country - whatever we want to wear. surely we can wear

Just not in the shopping centre, says the Brisbane shock jock who wants burqas banned to protect security at banks and post offices. I'm talking about covering your face - very simple, I'm talking nothing about religion, nothing about race, ethnicity, simply the covering up of your face. It would be easier if that was the law. And for that he's receiving widespread support. If it's a requirement that you've got to take off your motorbike helmet, a requirement for women I don't see why it wouldn't be

to have to remove the veil from the front of their face. Retailers too want the power to refuse entry. Any piece of clothing that anyone in our society would be wearing that could potentially be used to distort their identity, should be able to be removed. Listeners also suggested driving in burqas be banned. The acting Premier says the station should tone down. Look, name-calling doesn't help. 4BC could face losing their licence for breaching the broadcasting code. but only if an official complaint is made. So far, there's hasn't been one. As for Michael Smith... Is it the end of a career shot? ..he has the station's full support.

Emma Dallimore, Ten News. A military boss is in hot water after suggesting the Navy needs hot women in bikinis to attract the right demographic of men. Feminists are outraged, saying it proves a culture of sexual discrimination still exists in the military. It's just a really naive, silly set of statements

and, if somebody's a commander of a submarine, I expect better of them. Politicians say the remarks, contained in a men's magazine, are unacceptable and do not reflect the attitude of the Defence Force. The freelance journalist who wrote the article has apologised saying

the Commander was just responding to his inappropriate questions. There's no shortage of applicants for Queensland's offer of the best job in the world. All walks of life have expressed interest - so many, in fact, the website's struggling to keep up. Oh, my God. I can't believe I'm going to do this. In a Brisbane tattoo parlour, the world's most unusual job application for what's increasingly the world's most sought-after job - Queensland's Hamilton Island is looking for a caretaker - the 6-month stint will involve island-hopping and sunbathing and it comes with the $150,000 paycheck. So now it doesn't matter if I'm snorkelling, swimming, If I'm at work, I'm a permanent advertisement for the islands and the reef. Very clever way of bringing the Barrier Reef and Queensland's tourism destinations to the attention of the world. 2,000 people have already applied and even Outer Mongolia.

A Greek woman's thrown her hat in the ring too, promising to do laundry for everyone in Australia.

How you doing Australia? They've been lucky enough to access the site to apply - the job's so popular, the website is constantly crashing. The ultimate aim of the worldwide job search is to insulate Australia's tourism industry from the global downturn. What we really have to do is protect jobs in the next 12 months, particularly in regional Queensland, and that means coming up with creative, aggressive ways to tell the world we're still here and we're still open for business. Yes, it's a stunt. The job winner has to video-blog their adventures for the rest of the world to see. 11 will make the shortlist to be flown from around the world for interviews. The winner's announced in May. I better get this job. Meg Palmer, Ten News.

After the break, Osama Bin Laden re-emerges with a deadly new demand. Plus the dog fight to save a classic breed.

He's still British and now the bulldog is facing his own battle.

The body of the second Melbourne man

killed in a glacial collapse in New Zealand has been located. Grieving parents Ronnie and Winnie Miranda

made the painful trip home yesterday, forced to leave the body of one of their sons behind. But 22-year-old Akshay Miranda's body was found this afternoon, a week after he and his brother, 24-year-old Ashish were crushed to death at Fox Glacier. The family is now hoping to bury their sons together after autopsies have been completed. There's hope an end to the war in Gaza could be in sight. Hamas has accepted an Egyptian-brokered cease-fire, with Israeli negotiators heading to Cairo to discuss the deal. It comes as the Palestinian death toll passes 1,000. Thick smoke blankets part of Gaza as Israel fires more white phosphorus shells. The Israeli Army is reportedly using these controversial weapons to create smokescreens for its troops. But pieces of burning phosphorus fall to the ground.

They're difficult to put out, and some civilians have been burned. Israel is also using some of the heaviest conventional bombs in its arsenal. Whole buildings have been virtually erased. Districts near the border have been ravaged by ground attacks.

This is the village of Khoza'a after a 24-hour battle between Israeli troops and militants. Really, what happened is unbelievable. I couldn't believe what happened here. It's scenes like these that have prompted the UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, who's now in the Middle East, to call once again for a cease-fire. Israeli officials reject the idea that international pressure for a cease-fire could force them to wind down the operation.

"No-one should stand here with a stopwatch "or put a pistol to our head," one official was quoted as saying. But the truth is there is international pressure, and it's building. Israel has now announced that more elite troops have been sent into Gaza. This lopsided conflict has now caused more than 1,000 Palestinian deaths. And still there is no agreement on how to end it. Julian Manyon, Ten News. And Osama Bin Laden has re-emerged, calling on Muslims to launch a holy war against Israel. The al-Qaeda leader has released a new audio message, promising to open up new fronts against the West beyond Iraq and Afghanistan.

The man whose name will be forever linked with that of George Bush took his parting shot not with a terrorist attack but an audiotape.

Breaking an 8-month silence, Osama bin Laden also warned the incoming president he has inherited a war he cannot win without making the economic crisis worse. He's trying to take a victory lap here. Does he deserve to take a victory lap? Yes and no. has taken some serious hits. In some ways, his organisation But, at the same time, it's survived in the face of a massive US onslaught and in some parts of the world, especially Pakistan, it's grown stronger. The Pentagon keeps commandoes on constant alert in Afghanistan, waiting for a tip on bin Laden's whereabouts, but has not has a good shot at him

since he was cornered in the Tora Bora mountains in December of 2001. Daniel Byman, of Georgetown University, says bin Laden himself seems surprised to be alive.

From his point of view, there's an expectation of martyrdom that could come any day now, and he must see his survival as a sign of divine favour. And he remains, in everybody's eyes, the number one threat to the United States. Actor Ricardo Montalban has died at the age of 88. He rose to stardom in flashy MGM musicals and then hit the small screen as Mr Rourke on the hit series 'Fantasy Island'. Montalban's character presided over a tropical island resort where guests were able to fulfil their life dreams, but at a cost. He died at his home overnight. The cause was not been revealed. Apple founder Steve Jobs has been forced to take extended sick leave. In an email to employees, the Mac chief executive said he'll be off work until June

because his health problems are more complex than originally thought. Earlier this month, Mr Jobs announced he was being treated for a hormone imbalance which had caused dramatic weight loss. Apple's chief operating officer, Tim Cook, will take over the day-to-day running of the company. Tennis fans are being put on notice, with extra police to patrol crowds at next week's Australian Open. Bad behaviour could see troublemakers served with 24 hour bans and costly fines. The two Andys - Murray and Roddick - tested out the surface at Melbourne Park this afternoon, the cool weather a welcome surprise in an Australian summer. that has police concerned. But it's action off-court If people misbehave it's most likely they'll find themselves on the outside of the arena with a $227 ticket in their pocket. Police used capsicum spray on unruly fans last year. Organisers are keen to avoid similar ugly scenes. It's our goal every year not to have any, and if we are in a situation where there is an incident, it will be dealt with immediately. Every officer will carry new capsicum foam, replacing spray canisters. The effects are exactly the same. The only difference is that with the foam

you're able to target particular people more accurately. at the cricket, After this week's laser incident tennis security staff will be watching for the dangerous devices. And anyone leading a Mexican Wave could be banned. A man caught upskirting, and a racial brawl and a child sex attack

in the past two years have dented the image of the 104-year-old championships. With Middle Eastern and Asian nations interested in hosting a Grand Slam event, tournament organisers say it's vital its safe, fan-friendly reputation

the Australian Open maintains if the event is to remain in Melbourne. We are known as the players' Slam - we're known as the players' favourite place to play and you ask the players, "Why is that?" Well, because of the friendly environment and enjoy the tennis. Ben Lewis, Ten News. Sports Tonight with Adam Hawse is next, and Adam, Lleyton Hewitt out of the Sydney International?

Yes Belinda, but he didn't go down without a fight.

This program is captioned live. Good evening and welcome to Toyota Sports Tonight. Australian batsman Michael Clarke has been passed fit for tomorrow's opening one-day clash against South Africa at the MCG.

But the vice-captain's good news is bad news for young gun David Warner - he's been cut from the squad. A bandaid was the only telltale sign of Michael Clarke's sore right thumb.

In the privacy of the indoor nets at the MCG, the Australian vice-captain padded up to a bowling machine, a fitness test lasting exactly half an hour, with the team physio and doctor. before deliberations

And he was given the all clear to advance outside. How is it, Clarkey? It's going OK, thanks. From there, the bandage was reapplied. And, with the skipper and his selectors watching on, the 27-year-old proved he was good to go. Completed all his training well today. He's still got a bit of discomfort in his thumb but he's had that from the start of the Perth Test match and got through really well - good signs for us that he's fit for selection. Good news for Clarke is bad news for young gun David Warner. He's been cut, to return to domestic duties. When told, it proved music to the ears of the South Africans.

He's obviously a dangerous player - we saw that at the MCG last week, but Australia have got quite an established one-day team. Brad Haddin returns to keep wicket. Nathan Hauritz is Australia's likely twelfth man. Ricky Ponting is happy to pour the acid on the visitors. After a long tour, he says they've lost their way without injured skipper Graeme Smith. Yeah, I think we did notice that, even probably more so at the end of the game than the other night

when there seemed to be three or four skippers out on the ground, up in Birsbane the other night, trying to run and control things. If we win tomorrow night we're 1-0 up. As a sign of the times, just 45,000 are expected for game one of a tournament that will find it tough to top a Test and 20-over series. I'm confident that both Twenty20 and 50-over cricket will survive together. I've got no doubt about that. Roger Federer has continued his unbeaten run at the Kooyong Classic, but only just. After a great start, the world number two was less than convincing against Fernando Verdasco. He's no longer number 1 in the world, but Roger Federer remains an imposing figure. early on against a nervous Fernando Verdasco. COMMENTATOR: Gee whiz, how confident does Federer look?

The night began with yet another honour Cristiano Ronaldo. for Manchester United's

The Premier League's first World Player of the Year. COMMENTATOR: Best club side in the world the best player in the world among their number. The north-west derby against over-achieving Wigan loomed as a danger game for the Red Devils but Ronaldo took just 51 seconds to stamp his authority on the match. And Manchester United have not taken long to pick up where they left off. And Ronaldo, and Rooney strokes it home. Wayne Rooney with his fifth league goal of the season but just six minutes later, he limped off with a hamstring injury which will keep him sidelined His replacement, Carlos Tevez, should have doubled the lead midway through the first half.
