Firefighters are battling bushfires A number of large blazes are being fanned by strong, hot winds - this one in the Gold Coast hinterland. Weather conditions have eased today, but some of the fires are still burning and some new fronts have erupted. So far, no property has been destroyed, but residents in many suburbs have been affected by smoke. And the firebombing helicopter 'Elvis' has rocked into Sydney just in time for bushfire season. But this time, the high-capacity chopper

is accompanied by the sky-crane 'Shania'. The aircraft will both be used to battle blazes across the nation

during what's expected to be a long, hot summer.

The pair are part of a larger fleet of 27 firefighting aircraft that can be moved around the country as needed. Australia's most prominent tobacco case may return to the courts, following fresh allegations of dirty tricks. Two lawyers for British American Tobacco have come under fire, accused of potentially committing pejury in the Rolah McCabe case. Anti-smoking campaigners are calling for a full investigation. That would be called as soon as possible to test the tobacco companies and their lawyers about what they knew and when. The Victorian Premier not ruling out a return to the courts. That would have to be determined on the basis of evidence, of course. If the evidence is there, we'd have every capacity to go back. Rolah McCabe was the first Australian to win a compensation case, which was later overturned. Riots sparked by political turmoil in Bangladesh have left at least 11 people dead and hundreds injured. Running battles broke out between rival political activists in the capital, Dhaka. Riot police fired tear gas and warning shots into the air to try to break up the crowd. One official was hacked to death. The trouble started after about 10,000 protesters tried to hold a banned rally. The owner and some staff at the Greek hotel

where two British children died

will be charged with manslaughter. Authorities have confirmed the brother and sister were overcome by carbon monoxide fumes as they slept.

She came to see where her children had passed away. Sharon Woods was so distraught, she needed constant support from her second husband throughout the half-hour visit to the bungalow. Before she left, a pause to look at the unit housing the boiler. The appliance is now at the centre of the investigation as the probable source of the poisoning. It's now been confirmed, Mrs Woods's children, 6-year-old Robert and 7-year-old Christianne, died from carbon monoxide poisoning as they slept. They had been enjoying a half-term break with the father, Neil, and his partner, Ruth. They are both recovering in hospital.

Prosecutors believe the boiler - housed behind this door - was leaking - that caused it to overwork

and it's believed the excess fumes were then drawn into the bungalow

through the airconditioning unit. Guests at the Hotel are clear that those responsible should be held to account. If it's carbon monoxide that's killed them, then someone's gotta pay, haven't they? But it's not gonna bring the children back, unfortunately. Guests we spoke to at the hotel have chosen to stay on after being relocated from the bungalows to the main building. They'll all be leaving in the next two days anyway, because the hotel's due to close for winter. Former world heavyweight boxing champion Trevor Berbick has been murdered in Jamaica. Police say the 51-year-old was attacked with a machete. In 1981, Berbick became the last boxer to beat Muhammad Ali. He returned to Jamaica three years ago after being deported from the United States, where he had several run-ins with the law and served a prison sentence. Tribute to a legend - next, the life-size statue honouring one of our greatest racehorses. Also, hundreds line up for a look inside the PM's house.

Rescuers found two men on the footpath, thrown from a sedan that careered into a power pole shortly after midnight. A 29-year-old man was dead

and the 31-year-old off-duty officer was injured. Police have yet to establish who was driving. Speed and every other issue associated with these sort of things will be investigated.

The Queensland Police Ethical Standards Command is investigating. Melbourne's best-known bookmaker says he feared for his life while being held up at gunpoint. Michael Eskander was ambushed, bound and threatened with a handgun at his home on Friday. The bookie says he's hardly slept since the 20-minute ordeal. At one stage, I suppose, I thought, "I couldn't care less. "If you're gonna do it, bloody hell, just go ahead and finish it off."

Mr Eskander says the incident highlights the need for better protection for bookmakers by the racing industry. A flotilla of protesters took to Melbourne's Yarra River today, A tribute to one of our greatest racehorses. The life-size statue of Makybe Diva is about to be unveiled in SA.

Tightly wrapped in plastic,

the bronze statue is bolted to its base. The model Makybe Diva standing tall on Port Lincoln's foreshore -

home of owner Tony Santic and sculptor Ken Martin - two men who know her better than anyone. Her ears pricked, her left ear just slightly turned.

As though she's about to move but fully alert, with that electricity running through her body. The Diva raced her way into Australian history with three consecutive Melbourne Cups and a Cox Plate. COMMENTATOR: A champion becomes a legend. It took 1,600 hours over four months to study and recreate the legend -

dozens of photos, countless sketches and a clay model. It was covered in silicone, reproduced in wax and turned into a ceramic mould, filled with 300 kilograms of bronze.

Every muscle is in place and every vein. And there's that artistic licence in it as well that's made it more than just a statue. For me it's definitely, definitely the most exciting project I've worked on so far. Security guards will ensure no-one gets too close to the sculpture before Tony Santic unveils the tribute tomorrow. Kimberley Harper, Ten News. Controversial country music stars The Dixie Chicks are speaking out in a new film.

'Shut Up and Sing' documents the backlash over comments they made about the US President and the invasion of Iraq. It began as a documentary on America's most successful female band. SINGS: # Oh say can you see... # In 2003, the Dixie Chicks were the darlings of country music with 8 Grammys and more than 20 million album sales.

But the film's focus took a dramatic turn in the weeks before the US-led war in Iraq

when Texan-born lead singer Natalie Maines said this. Filmmakers documented the band's sudden demise as conservative country music fans abandoned them in droves. Move to France, Dixie chicks. MAN: Strap her to a bomb and just drop her over Baghdad. The women were labelled traitors, there were radio bans, public protests and death threats. It says Natalie Maines will be shot dead Sunday, July 6 in Dallas, Texas. The hardest part for me was when the Red Cross wouldn't take a million dollars from us. They shouldn't have their feelings hurt just because some people don't want to buy their records. Three and a half years on, all is still not forgiven. Two US networks are refusing to run ads for the documentary because they say it disparages the President. While the Dixie Chicks have won a new fan base with their unapologetic single, 'Not Ready to Make Nice', it's unlikely they'll ever win back the legions of fans they lost. Still, they have no regrets. I, um, am proud to be forever associated with free speech and standing up for myself and my right for that. In the United States, Rahni Sadler, Ten News. The weather's next and then it's Sports Tonight with Ryan Phelan and Fields of Omagh makes racing history. Connections have plenty of reasons to celebrate, Tracey, after one of the great fairytales of the Turf in winning a second Cox Plate. We'll take you to the party.

Thousands have lined up for a look inside the Prime Minister's and Governor-General's Sydney homes, the public getting a glimpse of how our leaders live, while savouring one of the best views in the country. It was a picture perfect day in the harbour city as thousands lined up for an inside look at two of Australia's best-known homes. Just to have a bit of a stickybeak, to have a little look around and see how Johnny lives. I hope she's dusted as well before - I'm gonna check the furniture. Just a great opportunity to see one of the famous houses in Australia.

For security reasons, Kirribilli House was off limits to the cameras, but the Governor-General's home was open to all. The official Sydney residence of Major-General Michael Jeffrey has 10 bedrooms, a sitting and reception room and some pretty sensational harbour views.

And then there's the grand dining room, which has played host to some very famous guests. We get to represent the nation by hosting dinners, everything from presidents to kings and queens.
