emergency people affected by the floods -

emergency workers, and volunteers.

A big day for them. She will then

return back to South Bank, when she

quick tour, but certainly a very

welcome one in Queensland.

Extraordinary stamina for the 85- year-old. Thank you very much.

there's another Gap gap to the rest, with

The French President and German

Chancellor meeting in Brussels

tonight. Angela Merkel says she

thinks they will meet Wednesday's

deadline, although there are

difficult discussions ahead. Step

one - boosting funding for Europe's

banks. We have made real progress

and we have come to important

decision on strengthening European

banks. That is just one part of the

package, and obviously there's more

work to do. The Finance Ministers'

meeting had started with looks of almost

almost despair. It ran on and on,

The banks will have to raise 100

billion euros to protect themselves.

British banks won't. They seem to

be in better shape than others. The

threat is from Greece, with banks

likely to lose more than half the

amount Greece should have paid back.

This was the easy part, though.

Much harder, trying to work out how

to boost the eurozone rescue fund.

Checking the markets now:

As we just told you, Europe rallied

on Friday. That should continue

after the German Chancellor and

French President announced last

night they have made a broad agreement

Let's take a look at today's weather in more detail:

Now for a look at what's making

headlines in today's newspapers.

The 'Sydney Morning Herald' reports

NSW tourism chief wants

Sydneysiders to fall in love with

their city and talk it up. 'The

found the flood system in South

Australia is inadequate. 'The

Is your super fund investing through Industry Funds Management? Do they believe?

Headlines every 15 minutes here on

Ten's Early News. An elderly woman

has been hit and killed by a

runaway car in Sydney's south-west.

The 82-year-old was putting her

garbage bins out when a parked,

empty Toyota Corolla rolled down

her driveway and hit her. The

grandmother was stuck under the

vehicle. She was taken to Liverpool

Hospital, where she later died.

Well, Indonesia's President, Susilo

Bambang Yudhoyono, has decided to

get personally involved in the case

of a 14-year-old Australian boy

facing drugs charges in Bali. Ten's

Leonie Mellor is in Bali and joins

us now live. Good morning. What us now live. Good morning. What

exactly is the President doing with this

this case? Well, Kath, we know Dr

Yudhoyono takes a very tough stance against

against drugs. It seems he's taken

a personal interest in this case,

with the boy being a minor and

possibly facing jail time. The

President is on Bali this morning,

at a defence conference. Reports

out of here say that his

intervention and the intervention

of high-level officials in Jakarta

actually led to those dramatic

scenes we saw late yesterday, when

the boy was taken from here at the

headquarters to that detention

centre, avoiding being held at

Kerobokan, at least for now. What

will happen to the teenager this

week? Today a dossier of the case

will be handed from police to the

prosecutors. They have three days

to lodge that with the court. Then

a decision will be made as to who the

the judges will be, and a date set

for the boy's first court

appearance. Speaking with the boy's

lawyer over the weekend, he was

hopeful that first appearance would

be before the indeed of this week, possibly

possibly Friday. They are -- before

the end of this week, possibly

Friday. They are hoping to speed Friday. They are hoping to speed

things up as much as possible. Thank you very much.

The hunt for a great white shark at

Western Australia's Rottnest Island

will continue today after another

sighting. A shark was spotted by

the Ten's chopper at Thomson Bay,

but by the time authorities got

there, the shark had headed into deeper water.

The hunt for a killer white pointer.

A 32-year-old Texian man, George

Thomas Wainwright was diving off

the north coast when he was fatally

attacked. Two of the man's friends

aboard a private boat saw bubbles

from the water. For the first time

in WA history, the Government

ordered fisheries officers to trap

and kill the beast, believed to be a

a 3m griet white, in a bid to

protect public -- great white, in a

bid to protect public safety. In

the event that a great white is a

threat to human life, and I am

advised of it, then I give

permission to catch that shark and

destroy it. Hooks with bait were

set this morning. On the island,

the beaches were closed. Those

ashore still in shock. I have got

absolutely no doubt that that shark

should be destroyed if it was found.

It's their place. So you can't go

around just killing them. It's the

third fatal shark attack off the WA coast

coast in less than two months.

The royal couple will head to

Brisbane this morning, where they

will tour the area rebuilt after

this year's cyclone and floods.

Ten's Mazoe Ford is at Government

House, where Her Majesty is staying,

and she joins us now. Good morning.

Yesterday, the royal couple had

another busy schedule, meeting with

very high-profile Australians? Yes.

It was a very exclusive list here

for lunch here at Government House

yesterday. Sporting legends, actor,

comedians, and educators. Perhaps

the most notable was Geoffrey Rush.

While we're not privy to the

discussions they had, you can be

sure his invite showed she was

impressed by his performance in the kinges

kinges speech. Bart Cummings and kinges speech. Bart Cummings and

Anh Do were there. Yesterday, the Queen Queen and Duke of Edinburgh

attended a church service here at

St John's at Canberra, the oldest

church here. She greeted well wishes

wishes along the route. Now,

there's no letting up on the schedule

schedule today. What exactly is the

Queen's agenda in Brisbane today?

Well, this is seen, Kath, as

perhaps the most important day on

the Queen's itinerary here in Australia

Australia on this visit, to go and

see some of the way that Brisbane

is rebuilding following the January

floods, and meet the victims and

the heroes who are helping them to

rebuild. She will go on a cruise

from Bretts Wharf up the river to South

South Bank. She will tour South

Bank. She will have a reseps with Anna

Anna Bligh, the Premier in Brisbane,

-- a reception with Anna Bligh, the

Premier in Brisbane. Thank you.

And with just four days until CHOGM,

Perth motorists are being warned to

expect traffic delays this week in the

the CBD. Police have begun their

security crackdown. The Terrace has now

now been classified as a security zone.

We're a city that loves to drive,

but this Friday and Saturday, we're

being told to leave the car at home.

Getting into the city during CHOGM

will be a battle. Those stwo days

two days are gonna be particularly

busy around the city. There will be

several road closures, particularly

as delegates move thrufplt which roads

roads and what time will vary, but

it's available on the Main Roads

website. Ignorance won't be an

excuse. The Government claims

there's been plenty of notice. I

think if you have missed the

arrival of CHOGM and you haven't

had an opportunity to look at the information

information that's been available

on newspapers and online, you have

probably been a long way from

civilisation. There is an upside -

the Government's hoping free public

transport on those two days will

still encourage people into the CBD,

especially for the Great Aussie

Barbecue to farewell the Queen on

Saturday. It comes as police start

ramping up their presence in the

CBD. Around 800 centre officers

have been brought in for the event.

Their first job was putting up the security

Australia's economy has changed Australia's economy has changed

into a 3-speed economy, according to

to a new surveyor. The CommSec

'State of the States' report says

the nation has divided into three

groups. WA is the strongest state.

At the next level, Victoria, ACT

and South Australia. NSW is at the

bottom. The report judges the

states on factors including economic

unemployment and population growth.

Spring was in the air for real

Auctioneers in Sydney unloaded 134

properties. The clearance rate in

Sydney has stayed well above the 50%

Brisbane and Adelaide as well. A

check of the markets now:

Europe is also rallying. It did on

Friday. That momentum should

continue, after the German

Chancellor and French President

overnight made a broad agreement on the rescue plan.

A weather check now for you:

Ten's Early News. An elderly woman

has been hit and killed by a

runaway car in Sydney's south-west.

The 82-year-old was putting her

garbage bins out when a parked,

empty Toyota Corolla suddenly

rolled down her drive woip and hit

her. The grandmother was pinned

under the vehicle. Neighbours gave

her first aid until paramedics

arrived. She was taken to Liverpool

Hospital, where she later died.

Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono

Yudhoyono has decide to do get personally

personally involved in the case of the 14-year-old Australian boy

facing drugs charges in Bali. Ten's

Leonie Mellor is there and joins us

now live. Good morning again. What

exactly is President Yudhoyono

doing with this case? Kath, it is

quite unusual, given we know how

tough a stance Dr Yudhoyono takes

against drugs. It seems he's taken

a personal interest in this case,

given the boy is a minor and faces

possible jail time. The President

is on Bali this morning, attending

a defence conference. Reports say

he actually intervened in the case,

and also the intervention of high-

level officials in Jakarta affected

scenes we saw on Saturday, where

the boy was taken from headquarters

here to the derpblt, thereby

avoiding -- to the detention centre,

thereby avoiding going to the

Kerobokan prison for the moment.

What will happen to the teenager

this week? Well, today a dossier of

the case will be handed over from

police to prosecutors. They have three

three days to lodge that with the

court. Then a decision will be made as

as to who the judges will be and a

date will be set for the boy's

first court appearance. We spoke

with the boy's lawyer at the weekend

weekend and he was really hopeful

that the first court appearance

would be before the end of the week, possibly

possibly Friday. They really want

to speed things up and have this

case dealt with as soon as possible. I

I am sure the family do too. Thank

you very much. Well, the royal

couple will head to Brisbane this

morning, where they will tour the

area rebuilt after this year's

cyclone and floods. Ten's Mazoe

Ford is at Government House, where

Her Majesty is staying. She joins us

us live. Hello again. The royal

couple met with high-profile

Aussies yesterday stphr They did.

It was -- High-profile Aussies

yesterday? They did. It was a

packed house, including actors, sporting

sporting legends, comedians. Probably the most high-profile

guest was Geoffrey Rush. And we

caught up with him quickly before

he met the Queen and asked, "Are

you looking forward to lunch?" He

replied, "I'm hungy." Clearly, food

was on his mind. As he entered the

drawing room, he walked straught

past the Queen and Duke of

Edinburgh, and had to be called

back. Also, the legendary horse

trainer Bart Cummings was there,

and comedian Anh Do. Earlier in the

day, the Queen attended church at

St John's here in Canberra. She also

also greeted the hundreds of people

who had turned out along the

streets, lining those streets as he

returned to church. She took

flowers and greeted those people.

We are approaching the half woip

point of the Queen's visit and -- the

the halfway point of the Queen's

visit. And she really hasn't seemed to

to slow her pace? She has a busy day

day today up in Brisbane, touring

the flood-affected region, then

it's back here to Canberra tonight. She

She will go to the war memorial

tomorrow, Melbourne on Wednesday,

then over to Perth for the comoom.

So still a hectic -- for the

Commonwealth Heads of Government

Meeting. So still a hectic schedule

for the Queen on the second half of this

this tour. Thank you very much.

Well, turning to overseas now, and in

in Turkey, rescuers have been digging furiously through the

rubble for people trapped after a 7.3

7.3 earthquake. The quake struck the

the east of Turkey, killing as many

as 1,000 people, and collapsing dozens

dozens of buildings.

It would normally be a time when families

families in this part of Turkey

gathered for lunch. This was when

the earthquake struck. This block

of flats completely demolished. There

There was panic as those who arrived

arrived home to discover the damage

struggled to understand exactly

what had happened. Before the quake, this

this was a 7-storey block, housing

50 or 60 people of all ages. Some

escaped from the rubble in the clothes

clothes they stood up in. Friends

and neighbours scrambled over the

collapsed building, trying to find anyone

anyone who might have been trapped

underneath. This is a region

crisscrossed by faults. Small

earthquakes are almost a daily

occurrence. It does once again

raise questions about how well the

authorities were prepared. As one

local journalist explained.

Buildings are not very good there, but

but it's a general problem for

Turkey, especially old buildings,

built according to old regulations.

Aftershocks have continued to hit

the area as rescuers continue to

gigadig into the rubble. Many have

been brought out alive. Many others

are still trapped. The rescue

services are preparing for a long

night, and probably another long

day.

Thai authorities are struggling to cope

cope with what is now officially

being called the worst flooding in

decades. At least 356 people are

listed as having been killed. Another

Another 110,000 have been displaced.

There's been massive damage to the

economy and local structure. At

least five major industrial zones

north of kpwonge have been swamped,

putting hundreds of thousands of

people out of work. Among thods

affected are carmakers Honda and

Toyota, and computer hard drive

maker Western Digital. Well, two of

the biggest names in movies have

launched their newest animation

blockbuster. Steven Spielberg has

teamed up with 'Lord of the Rings'

director Peter Jackson on a movie

version of comic book Tintin. The

premiere of 'Secret of the Unicorn'

was in Brussels. The film uses

actors to generate computer images.

Well, there should be some sore

heads across the Tasman this

morning after last night's narrow

by the Kiwis over France in the

Rugby World Cup. When Tony Woodcock

cross early, -- crossed early,

things looked ominous for the

French. And Thierry Dusatoir got a

try, but it was as close as they

would get. It's the filter since

1987 that New Zealand has claimed

the Webb Ellis Trophy. In

In soccer, Manchester City has

inflicted an humiliating 6-1 defeat

on bitter rivals Manchester United.

The Red Devils were torn apart in a

5-goal second-half route. Manager

Alex Ferguson described the loss as

the worst of his career.

COMMENTATOR: A seismic day in

English football. And the afternoon

got even better for City, when the

9-man Chelsea suffered a shock loss

to Queens Park Ranges. In cricket,

Shane Watson's injury troubles look

set to return after he suffered

back spasms in this morning's loss

to South Africa. The all-rounder

was taken from the field, as the

Proteas set a daunting total of 304

for the visitors. In reply,

Australia could manage only 223.

The series is now level at one,

with the decider in Durban on Friday Friday night.

Well, it could be a volatile week on

on the stock markets, with

inflation numbers out and bank

reporting season about to start.

Here with the details is James Rosenberg from Macquarie Private

Wealth. Mate, the main game is

Europe. And it's a work in progress?

progress? It is a work in progress.

Angela Merkel has warned people not

to expect a quick resolution. This

is the 13th time that the Europeans

have met over the last almost two

years to try and work out their

problems. Amongst the solution will be

be investors in Greek debt, for

example, take ag 50% haircut. So

it's gonna be -- taking a 50 heirs

-- taking a 50% haircut. I don't

think we will see quite the

strength we saw on Wall Street.

Attention for the week really will

be on the CPI numbers that come out

later. That's gb critical to

whether we get a rate -- that's

gonna be critical to whether we get

a rate cut on Cup Day next week.

Briefly in other business news - shareholders of property company

Stockland are expected to grill the

board about executive salaries at

tomorrow's general meeting. The

managing director's pay recently

rose by almost $1 million. The

Australian pipeline industry is

predicting a substantial rise in

contracts because of a demand for

gas. Up to $20 billion is expected

to be invested in the next few

years in Queensland projects alone.

And the three big iron ore mining

companies are in a race to expand

and ramp up production to take

advantage of the windfall in iron ore prices.

That's just about it in finance for

the moment. Lovely. We will do it the moment. Lovely. We will do it

all again tomorrow. Thank you, Mr Webster.
