the scenario was scary, yesterday

the government came up with a new scenario

Cairo and the weather bureau say

that drought, is there been in one

twice the year. The agriculture

minister went on a regional radio

to say that the government has no

choice but to prepare for the worst.

He is. It is no longer an option at

all for there to be any neglect

obliged to help farmers prepare for

the future and prepare for the

is forcing more and more mums to take little or no maternity leave. A study released today shows 10% of women return to work within three months of giving birth, with 5% returning within days or weeks. Most of those women are self-employed. Australia is one of the only OECD countries without a universal paid maternity leave scheme. We'll have more on this story later in Ten's Morning News. Pilots have been forced to fly blind over Canberra because of a shortage of air traffic controllers. It's believed a number of flights between Sydney and Melbourne and Canberra and Sydney have been unmanned over the past fortnight because there haven't been enough controllers to do the job. It's up to individual airlines to decide whether to divert or delay flights until the positions are filled. Meanwhile, Qantas and Singapore Airlines are calling for a night-time curfew at Sydney airport to be scrapped. The airlines claim the curfew, and a cap of 80 flights an hour, are restricting growth at the airport.

Well, it took almost five hours, but Rafael Nadal has been crowned Wimbledon champion after a gruelling 5-set final against world number one Roger Federer. The marathon match was twice interrupted by rain and ended in near darkness with neither man willing to admit defeat. The Grand Slam was finally decided after Federer hit the ball into the net, handing the 22-year-old his first ever Wimbledon title. It was all a little too much for the emotional Spaniard who ended Federer's 6-year unbeaten run on grass. We'll have a full match report later in our sport break. The dangerous side effect linked to the long-term use of codeine. We'll have that story when the Morning News returns. And they're off!

The father of the 6-year-old child appearing nude on a magazine cover says his daughter is proud of her controversial images. The issue of 'Art Monthly' has been referred to the classification board today. His daughter is the focus of a national controversy, but art critic Robert Nelson says the images are about freedom of expression. It's a risk worth taking. I think we have to defend the dignity of children's nudity, otherwise we're in for a culture

where you can't expose children in any circumstance, because someone might take some joy at looking at their bodies. These pictures got put in Perth in one of the galleries. It was on the first window, so you saw it when you passed, it was in there for four weeks, and not one person complained about the photos. So what's happening here is really, really weak.

The image of the 6-year-old girl sitting naked has provoked outrage from child protection campaigners and politicians. This is sexual exploitation of children. Frankly, I can't stand this stuff. And it could lead to new laws. NSW Premier Morris Iemma says

his government will re-examine the State's child protection guidelines. 'Art Monthly' has already been referred to authorities. It's a matter for the Australian Classification Board and that's why I'll be referring it to them tomorrow.

The magazine's editor, Maurice O'Riordan, defends the images, saying: But many disagree. I think there are are other ways of making a point in support of freedom of expression. Ben Lewis, Ten News. Australian researchers have found a dangerous new side effect

from the over-use of codeine. They've discovered it can cause hearing impairment, even deafness, almost overnight. Susan might be deaf but she hopes all codeine users listen to her story to ensure their hearing isn't lost too. Is that OK? Yes, I think so. For years she consumed high doses of prescription tablets for chronic back pain. Then last year,

she noticed her sense of hearing fade. Within months it was totally gone. I think it was about January. Got up, and I didn't have anything at all. It just suddenly went. None of her doctors picked up on the link between codeine and deafness until she met researchers from the Sydney Cochlear Implant Centre. About two years ago

we had some patients who'd suddenly gone completely deaf in both their ears, which is quite unusual. And the common factor was the fact the were all taking excessive amounts. And patient numbers continued to grow as previously unsolved cases of deafness were found to match a history of codeine use. It's not a case of just taking too many tablets every day, but taking even the recommended dose over two, three, four years can lead to total deafness. Codeine is available in a number of products and has morphine properties as it breaks down in the body. That's what makes it so addictive and why some patients can be reluctant to move on to alternative pain relief But they might if they knew the potential cost. When it got to point when I'd lost practically all the hearing in the right ear

and the left ear had gone completely, it was very, very scary because I didn't know what was going on, or whether I would actually recover the hearing. I felt a little angry that I'd been taking it for all this time and no-one knew. If someone had been able to say to me 12 months ago, I wouldn't be deaf. Studies have found the problem doesn't happen to everyone, but it when it strikes, it's swift and permanent. Those who've paid the price, urge all doctors, chemists and codeine users to take note. Amber Muir, Ten News. A suicide bomb attack in Pakistan has killed at least 15 people, most of them police officers. The victims were guarding a rally to mark the anniversary of violent clashes between militants and government troops at Islamabad's radical Red Mosque. We warn some of these scenes may be disturbing. Pakistan authorities say the attacker was a man in his 30s who dashed into a group of policemen and blew himself up. What followed was a familiar scene of chaos and shock, streets cordoned off, and the injured carried away. In addition to the dead, at a nearby hospital an emergency room doctor said at least three dozen people had been brought in wounded by the bomb, nearly all of them security officials. As far as blame is concerned, it is too - it is premature to blame anyone. An investigation takes a little time and we're not in a position to level blame or hold anyone responsible at this point in time. The police had been assigned to ensure safety at a rally nearby at Islamabad's infamous Red Mosque. It was a gathering to mark the anniversary

of a violent crackdown against extremists there just one year ago. Last July, a military raid on the Red Mosque left more than 100 people dead. Pakistani officials said the mosque had been a challenge to government authority, a pro-Taliban school for radicals, and a source of violence. Anger over that assautl is still strong, and some believe the latest suicide bombing was a revenge attack. But Pakistanis bent on violence have a catalogue of complaints against the government. pledged partnership with America It includes the country's on anti-terror efforts along the border with Afghanistan and cooperation in the hunt for Osama bin Laden. Cooler weather has brought some relief A treasure trove of priceless ancient objects has found its way to America. The items from Afghanistan, survived the Soviet invasion survived the Soviet invasio and the Taliban to reach a gallery in Washington. It's the stuff of myths and legends the kind that would drive Indiana Jones

on a last crusade or two. But this gold is real - up to 4,000 years old, hidden in war-torn Afghanistan by a web of secrets and lies. What really saved these artefacts was a code of silence of these Afghans, where hidden, who knew that these treasures were hidden, but they didn't tell anybody. And this is the real-life Indiana Jones who braved a war zone to find the stuff, National Geographic archaeologist Frank Hieber. After Kabul fell to coalition forces and the Taliban fled, new Afghan President Hamid Kharzai found locked museum boxes in his new palace's basement. Wow, could these be the treasures from the national museum we thought were lost, stolen, bombed? But the keys were lost. Dr Hiebert talked them into letting him crack the case. I was worried about whatever was inside of that safe, from the heat. it might get melted The moment of truth.

That first sigh of relief was just amazing. This could be real? This could be real. Some 20,000 pieces of gold from a nomadic princess's collapsable crown... A crown that travels? Yup, a travelling crown. ..to gold worn head to toe. In the other boxes a vast collection of treasures, as if something fell off every trader's cart, on the old Silk Road which stretched from Asia to the Mediterranean. Much of the art was actually made in Afghanistan. The artisans were taking ideas and different art styles from along the Silk Road and putting it all together and making it all part of Afghan culture. Not what you have come to expect from the land of burkhas and bloodshedding.

War, problems, chaos, and terrorism, And here, Afghans themselves say. "Look, we have a sophisticated culture, "we have another side and people should know about it." Not just people here. Afghans plan to bring this treasure home, what they once more, to remind their people what they once were, and inspire them to dream of what they can be. Madonna has denied she's split with husband Guy Ritchie. Rumours have been rife the pop superstar and her film director husband are headed for divorce after 7.5 years of marriage.

To the latest in business and finance with Kathryn Robinson, and St George Bank paves the way for other banks to raise rates? Quite possibly, Tarsh. After St George hiked rates 0.2% on Friday, independent of the Reserve Bank,

there are fresh fears that other banks could follow suit. According to market analysts, if funding costs remain high, further interest rate rises are inevitable regardless of what the RBA does. But St George's rivals have played down the need to pass on the higher costs to customers.

ANZ, Westpac, CBA and the NAB have all increased rates on top of the RBA's quarter-point hikes in February and March.

And St George's most recent rate hike will only contribute to the nation's slowing housing market. Weekend auction clearance rates in Sydney and Melbourne remained soft. Queensland, though, bucked the trend, boosted by recent stamp duty cuts. Job numbers out this morning show rates are continuing to bite, employers cutting back on hirings

after taking little or no maternity leave. New research from the Australian Institute of Family Studies has found 1 in 10 new mums is back at work within three months of giving birth, while 5% of women return to the workforce just weeks or even days after leaving hospital.

For more on this now we're joined by Sharan Burrow, president of the Australian Council of Trade Unions. Good morning, Sharan. Women returning to work days after giving birth sounds like something that happens in Third World countries.

It is scandalous, and when you have

because of financial pressures?

And he immediately took up the fight to the World Number one, breaking him in just the third game and claiming the opening set. COMMENTATOR: Oh, that's brilliant. The Swiss responded immediately in the second.

His momentum stalled when a fan yelled out and distracted him on a break-point opportunity. Nadal pounced to take a 2-0 lead. UMPIRE: Game, Nadal. Despite receiving treatment for a knee injury victory seemed in Nadal's sights.

Yeah, tried everything. Got a little late, and everything. But look, Rafa's a deserving champion, he just played fantastically. Andrew Brown, Ten News Racism in sport has once again reared its ugly head, Penrith captain Petero Civoniceva claiming

he was the target of racial abuse during yesterday's match against Parramatta. He claims he was called a 'monkey' and told to "get back in his tree" by a group of six Eels supporters. As soon as he called him a monkey, Petero turned around and walked straight at him and I thought he was going to hit him - I was hoping he would, because the guy was an idiot. Civoniceva admits he retaliated by knocking over one of the spectator's beers. He plans to send Parramatta a letter of apology. Ugly stuff. It marred a good win for Penrith, who leapfrogged Parramatta into the top eight. And despite a host of Origin stars backing up, Melbourne was much too good for Canberra. Penrith coach Matt Elliott's focus on youth is beginning to pay dividends, his young Panther cubs leaving their mark at Parramatta Stadium and taking the club into the top eight. Mate, the sky's the limit. You've got Wade Graham who is 17 and still in high school, and Masada out at dummy-half - he just gave us so much fire in that pack today and the thing I loved about him was the way he stepped up into it. Rookie five-eighth Wade Graham drawing comparisons to another boom Penrith junior, Brad Fittler. Freddy was such a great player

Oh my God, oh my God! What are we seeing here? I don't know if I should make this public, but I thought Greg went to another level today. He doesn't usually back up after Origin or rugby games so well. The win securing the Storm's place in the competition's top four.

Barry Hall's been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons this year and the unwanted attention is set to continue after this clash with Shane Wakelin -

although the Magpie veteran's team-mate had a different take on it. It didn't even look like he hit him. I think Wakes just fell down. He's getting a bit older in his age so he might have just taken a dive - trying to get a free kick, Wakes, knowing him. If Hall's coach was worried he didn't show it, unflappable as ever following the 29-point loss, their fifth in a row to Collingwood. Everyone's left. I could have gone home and watched 'The Wedding Singer', it was on. The Swans hang on to fourth spot, with the Pies now just a game and a half further back, a top-four position in their sights. If we had have lost in that game,

it would be very difficult to make it to the top four in the rest of the year, but yeah, keep winning and hopefully that top-four spot stays available. Nathan Templeton, Ten News. Cricket - and Australia inflicted their heaviest ever one-day defeat of the West Indies this morning, cruising to a 5-0 series clean sweep.

Whirlwind half-centuries by Luke Ronchi and David Hussey setting up the win. While Mitchell Johnson took his second 5-wicket haul. Sean Marsh and Shane Watson were the two outstanding performers of the Indian Premier League. The pair look to have found a winning combination at the top of Australia's 50-over side. COMMENTATOR: And he's got away with it. It's going to drop just inside the boundary.

The loss of Watson brought Luke Ronchi to the crease. The keeper making his intentions clear from the outset. Fine shot, beautifully hit. Three sixes off one Chris Gayle over alone as Ronchi smashed his way to a 22-ball half century. Andrew Symonds and Mike Hussey also scored 50s before David Hussey set about pushing the target past 300. A brilliant shot from David Hussey. His half-century coming off just 19 balls, the second-fastest by an Australian.

At the end of 50 overs, Australia were 8/341. To be a chance, the West Indies would need some inspiration from their captain, Gayle. Gayle will go, big edge. Gayle out for 5, the hosts in trouble. Shaun Findlay made the only significant contribution with a defiant 59 not out.

Mitchell Johnson claiming the last three West Indian scalps to finish with the second 5-wicket haul of his career. 5-for for Mitchell Johnson to finish this tour. The West Indies all out for 172. Australia 5-0 series winners. Our goal was to come over to the Caribbean, the one-day series, and win 5-0, and we achieved that, so full credit to all the guys.

Shane Watson was named man of the series after finishing with 206 runs at an average of 41.2.

We've got a few weeks break now, so I'm going to look forward to that. But yeah, everything's progresing really well and I can't wait to play some more cricket. Britain's Lewis Hamilton has joined a 3-way tie at the top of the Formula One standings
