A chilling new warning tonight about a terror attack on Australia. Experts say we're going through a classic build-up period and they say the obvious landmarks won't be targeted. They are frightening images - training videos from militant groups showing examples of terror attacks. Two American security experts have used the vision to shock industry insiders into realising just how serious the threat is to Australia.

Allahu Akbah! Professor Robert Pape says the Bali and Jakarta bombings show we're now going through a similar build-up to that experienced by the US ahead of 9/11, where Americans were attacked on foreign soil. With that pattern and consistency of year after year Australians being targeted by suicide attack,

Australia needs to be worried. He says Australia is in the sights of suicide bombers because of our involvement in Iraq, Afghanistan and East Timor. Australia, unfortunately, is facing an unholy alliance between al-Qa'ida and the JI, each of whom is motivated by their own anger about different Australian military deployments.

Former US Navy intelligence officer Malcolm Nance says our icons like the Harbour Bridge and Opera House won't be the targets. Those are huge assets that require a lot of resources, but you have transportation resources like buses, light rail, the ferries, and all of those are things that people use every day. And aside from our transport system, it's our tallest buildings

that are causing the terrorism analysts greatest concern.

You're absolutely on the radar. Al-Qa'ida has members who are Australian nationals. Frank Coletta, Ten News. A Sydney mother is facing charges of neglect after her 5-year-old son was found wandering the streets after midnight.

The boy's brother and sister had also been left home alone. Police remove three children, a girl aged three and her brothers just five and eight.

They'd been left home alone. The alarm was raised when a passing motorist noticed one of the boys standing on the side of the road around 1am. He'd wandered several hundred metres from home, crossing under a train line.

He was spotted outside a row of shops, telling the couple who picked him up he was looking for his mum. I just ran over to him, picked him up, put him on my side here, gave him a kiss on the cheek. Mate, I was nearly in tears myself. They asked him where was his mother? Watching the football at the pub.

It took police 1.5 hours to work out where he lived, driving through the streets of Guildford until he recognised his home. There police found his brother and sister. Tracking down their mother took several hours. She turned up at the police station around 5am. I suppose any area at 12:30am in the morning for a 5-year-old child

would have some concerns. The future of the three children now rests with the Department of Community Services. Welfare officers have interviewed the mother and they'll now decide if she'll face charges of neglect. The couple just thankful they found the boy

before a paedophile or kidnapper could strike. He came with me, so he would have went with them. Poor thing, he doesn't know. Evan Batten, Ten News. Police are investigating the suspicious death of a baby in Sydney's south-west. The child, born to a methadone-dependent mother, was sent home only to die two weeks later when re-admitted to Campbelltown Hospital. The Opposition says the Government ignored its own guidelines by not informing DOCS the baby was in the care of a mother with a drug problem. Hundreds of cricket fans are facing disappointment with the cancellation of Ashes Test tickets sold illegally by scalpers.

Cricket Australia has already nullified 1,100 tickets. A further 200 remain under question.

Most were purchased over the Internet.

Where people purchased tickets at a premium, they're in breach of the terms and conditions, and we will, where appropriate, cancel those tickets. Cricket Australia says it's just trying to protect ordinary fans of the game.

Tim Webster with a look ahead to sport, and is Sydney soccer about to lose its biggest drawcard? Yes, Dwight Yorke could be about to leave us. Yorke didn't fly to Melbourne for this weekend's A-League, waiting for news of whether a transfer deal has been done with English club Sunderland. We'll have that later. Also, Lleyton Hewitt was moving freely as he powered his way into the second round of the US Open. We'll hear from him and Nicole Pratt, who also survived the opening round. Also coming up, a strange game of wet soccer. A western Sydney ecstasy bust lands three people in court - that's next. Also, what a farce - a magistrate slams the Government for telling Jack Thomas he can't contact Osama bin Laden. And history up in smoke - firebugs blamed for a spectacular building blaze.

This program is captioned live. More than $250,000 worth of ecstasy has been seized

during raids on homes in Sydney's west. Police searched three properties as part of a 2-month investigation into the commercial supply of drugs in the western suburbs. More than 5,000 pills were removed and 3 people were charged. A magistrate has slammed the Federal Government for including Osama Bin Laden on a list of people Jack Thomas is forbidden to contact. The freed terror suspect remains under curfew as he continues to fight an unprecedented control order. Taking the bins out is a welcome task after maximum security, yet a control order imposed last weekend means Jack Thomas isn't a free man. You know, I'd love to invite you all in and stuff but lawyers have told me that I've got to ask you to please respect the family's privacy. His lawyers attempting to lift the first anti-terror control order,

which they say is offensive. Mr Thomas must report to police, heed a curfew and is forbidden from contacting 50 listed people.

A federal magistrate told the Government solicitor that including Osama bin Laden on the list was farcical. However, the Government's lawyer defended the al-Qa'ida leader's inclusion, as it's alleged he'd met with Mr Thomas three times and:

The list also contains 13 people either known to be dead or in custody at Guantanamo Bay. Despite the dressing-down, the Government stands by its order. Let me make it clear, separately from this case, that my Government strongly supports the control-order system. Mr Thomas yesterday admitted he'd wanted to leave Afghanistan before the war on terror,

but was stranded there after the Twin Tower attacks. The interim control order will continue at least until the hearing returns on the Federal Magistrates Court on an ominous day for Jack Thomas - September 11. Kate McGrath, Ten News. Rugby league star Sonny Bill Williams has been fined for a series of speeding tickets despite claiming he wasn't the driver. The Bulldogs forward had managed to accumulate seven speeding tickets

between June 2004 and January last year but claimed a friend was driving the car. However, a deal with the RTA has seen Sonny Bill plead guilty to two of the infringements with a court ordering him to pay a $330 fine. There are calls tonight for an overhaul of the way dangerous prisoners are granted parole. It follows a mother's battle to stop her son's killer being released.

Shirley McHugh stopped her son's killer being released from jail this week by discovering evidence of his poor prison record. Paul Hart denied parole after it was revealed he had 21 offences on his internal prison record, including violence. Hart killed Shirley's son, Simon McHugh, in 1992,

brutally bashing the Newcastle businessman to death before throwing him in a dam to drown.

He's a murderer. Would you like him living next door to you? She says parole is granted far too easily

and the families of crime victims are given a raw deal. It doesn't matter where a victim goes, the system is biased against them. Even the parole board hearing is very formidable. Concerns about the parole system follows the release of child killer John Lewthwaite and allegations that he was caught in the sandhills at Cronulla

engaging in lewd acts with other men. Killers and other offenders are getting out of jail far too early. The Government says parole should remain in the hands of the Parole Authority and the Serious Offenders Review Council. But critics say the whole system of paroling prisoners is flawed and needs extensive reform. Victims groups say parole should not be granted unless a prisoner

has undertaken rehabilitation courses. So if they're sex offenders, or if they are a person who has been driven by drugs and alcohol and they've done nothing to address that issue, what happens when they get out? They reoffend and we have more victims. John Hill, Ten News. A protest today against job cuts at Westpac. Staff rallied outside the Westpac Service Centre, calling on management to abandon plans to outsource 485 jobs to India. They describe Westpac's cost-cutting measures as cold-hearted following Westpac's 2005 record profit of $2.8 billion. In the first instance, of course, it's the worker who loses, but ultimately it's the customer of the company involved who loses because the controls are lost, security of information are lost. The final decision will be made in a fortnight. A spectacular blaze has ripped through an historic building in country Victoria. But firefighters managed to prevent the flames spreading to heritage-listed parts of the complex. Century-old timber provided the perfect fuel for the flames to quickly spread. The blaze engulfing the laundry area of St Aidans orphanage

even before fire crews arrived. A patrolling police car was driving up the road

and saw a lot of smoke. They assumed a fire was occurring and called the fire brigade. The flames were so fierce, they could be seen as a glow in the night sky up to 15km away. It took hold just before 9:00 last night - little could be done to prevent the structure from collapsing. At one stage, a nearby school was threatened. The only problem that was faced then

was a possible collapse of brick walls. Simply getting enough water was one challenge - We've done a lot of fire prevention work

over the last couple of years in removing any fuel or materials from the actual buildings that could have fuelled the fire or made things worse. About $300,000 worth of damage was inflicted, but this section of the property was already earmarked for demolition. Nicole Strahan, Ten News.

Unable to swim, she was trapped, terrified, in her sinking car. She did the only thing she could - she called her brother on her mobile phone and watched the murky water of the Colorado River rise. Those who saw it soon realised Charlene couldn't help herself and they frantically raced to her aid. I was pounding away

and she had her hands against the glass and she was terrified. They were working against an unforgiving deadline, and quickly running out of time. Eventually down it went. The 4-wheel drive completely submerged. But still they didn't give up. For me, to feel her actually grasp my arm was a real shock. And then the second time she grasped my arm

I knew right then that I could get her out. Eventually she surfaced.

As her saviours calmed her, little did they know the rescue was about to become even more incredible. When the car was towed out of the river every door and window was shut tight.

Nobody knows what happened under that murky water, just how she managed to escape. There was something there.

I can't explain it but something happened for her to be able to be alive today, for me to be able to pull her out. Amanda McLeay, Ten News. Hollywood funny guy Will Ferrell is heading down-under.

I sort of tried to rush it a bit to play the US Open. Wild card Mark Philippoussis threw everything at world number two Rafael Nadal in their first-ever on-court meeting. Well controlled. Well done. But it still wasn't enough, as the 1998 finalist was shown the first round exit door by the French Open champion.

Oh, quite incredible. Nadal's main rival, world number one Roger Federer, coasted through his opening match against Taipei's Jimmy Wang. Qualifying as a lucky loser, veteran Nicole Pratt backed up her best Wimbledon performance to beat Venezuelan Milagros Sequera. The last two months have been unbelievable for me, so I'm just trying to capitalise on that. New York now eagerly awaits the showman showdown

between the retiring Andre Agassi and Cypriot Marcos Baghdatis. Mark Chester, Ten News. Netball grand finalists the Sydney Swifts are attempting to go through a major Australian competition undefeated, a feat not achieved since rugby league greats St George some 47 years ago. The grand final breakfast didn't provide an opportunity for Sydney to face off with the Thunderbirds - only their non-playing captain attended.

Despite beating their rivals three times this year, the Swifts are wary. We had a similar year last year. We broke all sorts of records for winning games in a row. We had a great team, we had every reason to be confident, then we got pumped by Melbourne Phoenix in the grand final by 17 goals, so that's still pretty fresh in our memory and we don't want that to happen again. A superstitious Ellis wouldn't touch the trophy, a tradition Thunderbirds co-captain Peta Scholtz exploited.
