Mumbai is slowly coming to terms with yesterday's terrorist attack which killed more than 200 people. Forensic teams working on the train wreckage say the explosions were most likely detonated using timers. This is Mumbai today - a resilient city.

Commuters riding the trains through the very stations that were bombed yesterday.

Passengers looked down at the sandals and the pieces of clothing, the only remaining traces of seven bombings that cost 200 lives. There was blood all over. It made me feel nervous. Thank God at least I was saved. The seven bombed carriages have been taken to a siding for forensic examination. That type of powerful explosive has increased the suspicion that Islamic militants who oppose Indian rule in Kashmir were behind the bombings but officials are being cautious. Outside the hospitals family searched for the missing. A few held up photos. Some relatives scanned the list of the dead and injured and some discovered what they feared most. Some of the dead have been cremated.

the aftermath of a deadly attack on the city's commuters. More than 25,000 protesters have clashed with riot police

in South Korea. The demonstration turned violent when police obstructed a main thoroughfare into Seoul's main square. When farmers and students used bamboo sticks to try and break the blockade, police fought back with water cannon. The mass protest was over a proposed free trade agreement with the US. Bushfires are raging across California. More than 30 homes have been destroyed and thousands of people evacuated. Lightning strikes sparked the fires which are burning out of control. Suddenly the wind turned the fire and you're inhaling smoke and fire and you can't even describe it and the air turned to flame. In their path, the historic pioneer town where dozens of classic western movies were filmed. The homes and buildings that were once props now smouldering rubble. Ranchers were unable to save their property but they did get their stock to safety. Time to take 'em out of here. Fire is just over the hill. We could feel the heat from it already. More than 2,500 firefighters are battling the blaze with helicopters and planes attacking it from the air. These are people's homes. This is their life, this is where they live. A lot of our firefighters on this fire live here as well. With temperatures soaring above 40 degrees and more strong winds on the way, firefighters and locals are fearing the worst. At least 1,500 homes are under threat and hundreds of people are waiting out the disaster in shelters. In California, Leisa Goddard-Roles, Ten News. A medical breakthrough is heralding new hope for paralysed people around the world -

surgeons creating a brain implant

that can turn the power of thought into actions. Here's Matt during the trial. He has a robotic arm in his lap connected to his brain via a computer. He's making the hand open and close purely by thinking about it. MAN: Now close it. MATT: Now I'm closing. You can hear him speak the commands, but it's his brain controlling the hand. Close. Not bad, man. Not bad at all. The sensors are picking up the activity of neurones.

It's the language of the brain, like a form of morse code. The signals are sent down a wire to a computer, where they're decoded and turned into instructions, controlling the cursor on a screen. The patient can turn the lights off or on. So what's it like?

I can't put it into words. I use my brain... I just thought it. I said, "Cursor, go up to the top right," and it did. And now I can control it all over the screen. It's wild.

This is where the device was screwed into Matt's skull and connected to a computer. So what else did he use it for? Going to open the first email, which is congrats. It says, "You are doing a great job." And here, trying to draw a circle just by thinking about it. That's the best circle I can do. And now switching on the TV. That's channel down. Now I'm going to channel up. There's channel up. It'll be years before the device is widely available, but the director of the research program believes this is a major breakthrough. Ahead, French soccer star Zinedine Zidane talks about that headbutt for the first time, that's when ten's morning news returns. And we'll update the Aussie charge as the Tour de France starts its gruelling mountain stages. This program is captioned live. In finance news, the Australian share market is trading in negative territory. Zinedine Zidane has made a very public apology for that headbutt in the World Cup final. It comes as Football Australia asks FIFA to explain the Socceroos' latest surprising world ranking. Socceroos receiving the star treatment at home, We apologise for the break in caption transmission. Zidane said the defender insulted him. I tried to walk away and he repeated the insult. I apologise. FIFA is investigating his conduct. In AFL, the Kangaroos are set to announce later today that they'll play three home games out of the Gold Coast from next season. The new deal will mean the club will abandon Canberra as their home away from home. Desperate for the game's movement on to the Gold Coast the AFL is set to bankroll the Kangaroos' move north. The cash-strapped Melbourne club will receive as much as $500,000 for each of the three matches they play at Carrara from 2007. The Roos will announce the move this afternoon. The deal now opens the door for other Melbourne-based clubs to negotiate playing some of their home games

at Manuka Oval in Canberra. The premiers last night made their way west for their grand final re-match against the Eagles. But they've travelled minus veteran Paul Williams who today announces his official retirement. I think most of the players were shocked they expected Willo to play over the next eight weeks as the coaching staff did. But, look, it's something we can't do anything about. He's got to have an operation. Hopefully, for the players it's a bit of a reminder of how quickly it can finish. West Coast will lose suspended midfielder Daniel Kerr for Saturday night's blockbuster. But won't be out for redemption against their September nemesis. We'd love to win and get four points his week. It's not about getting one over anyone. Tim Hodges, Ten News.

In other moves, off-contract Bulldog Nate Myles will meet with new NRL side the Gold Coast Titans this weekend after already having talks with Melbourne but he insists his focus is still with the Bulldogs. It' a bit of a spin-out but I suppose it's great to be noticed. Then again, my main focus is to take out the premiership with the Bulldogs this year and I suppose it's a big decision deciding my future but my main focus is on the Bulldogs at the moment. The Dogs play the St George Illawarra Dragons in this weekend's match of the round. The Boomers have drawn first blood in a 4-game basketball series against New Zealand, winning game one 81-79 in extra time. The NBL's most valuable player, Chris Anstey, top scored with 24 points, overshadowing Andrew Bogut's return to Australian colours, Regular time went down to the wire. Kiwi guard Mark Dickel hit a three-pointer on the buzzer... lock the scores at 67 apiece. But the visitors steadied to take the win. Game two will also be in New Zealand

before the series shifts to Hobart and Melbourne for the final two games next week. Australian cyclist Robbie McEwen has hung onto the green sprinters jersey after a gruelling stage 10 of the Tour de France. The first of two climbing days in the Pyrenees spectacular and challenging as ever. But as they headed into the mountain mist the climbers came into their own.

Now for a look at the national weather: And for a look at the snow fields across the country we're joined by Madeleine Hubbard in Thredbo. Morning, Madeleine. Glorious sunshine there, but has there been much fresh snow. Hi, Jacinta. Well, yes, there has. It's another beautiful blue sky day in the mountains but we had about 15cm of fresh stuff blanket the upper slopes on Tuesday and yesterday morning. Because it was quite cold overnight the firm cover has retained a nice dry upper layer and the snow-makers at all the resorts were able to make lots of fresh stuff. Looking at the NSW resorts: Fine conditions are expected for tomorrow then the snow should make a return on Saturday falling on the upper slopes. A top-up we're happy to have. See you soon. That brings you up to date with all the news. Stay with Ten for updates throughout the day
