He joins other politicians, media identities and sportspeople awarded for their service to the Australian way of life. After more than 30 years in Parliament and 11 years as prime minister,

John Howard's elevation to a Companion of the Order of Australia is in keeping with a long career of achievement - recognition of the former leader's contribution to politics and to economic and social reform while doing a job he loved. It has been an incredible privilege to be the prime minister of the greatest country in the world. for much of his tenure The man behind Howard was his chief of staff, Arthur Sinodinos, who's also on the Queen's Birthday list. Other politicians recognised included former WA premier Geoff Gallop and the late Peter Andren, the much-loved Independent MP and former journalist. Channel Seven boss Kerry Stokes has been honoured for his contribution to business and the arts, as well as his purchase of Victoria Cross medals for the War Memorial. Their history is a story that we need to tell all Australians and I take great personal pride in being able to assist in that. Another recipient from big business was Woolworths chief Roger Corbett. On the other side of that equation - Bill Kelty. The former ACTU boss was awarded for service to the trade union movement. And making plenty of sense when it comes to dollars, money man Paul Clitheroe.

after returning from Iraq. But the journey was delayed by a few agonising hours It's hard to imagine a warmer welcome. Whoo-hoo! 130 Brisbane-based troops were due to touch down yesterday but instead arrived at 2:00 this morning after a stray bird grounded their flight from Darwin. Mate, it's a great feeling to come home, and to see my family again, it's the best feeling I've had. It's terrific to be back. There was a bit of a hiccup getting here, anyone could do about it. but there was nothing So we are here now -

After a 6-month deployment, relieved family and friends just happy to have their loved ones home safe and well. He has been worth the wait all the time - not just this last seven months, but for him, anything. The troops from the Combat Team Heeler of the Overwatch Battle Group West in southern Iraq were involved in security operations and reconstruction efforts. But one injured mate is still to arrive home. One of the team's still missing - Private Liam Haven. From what we understand, he's recovering well in Perth and hopefully will be able to make it for the parade later on this month. The Federal Government began withdrawing troops from Iraq last month as part of its election promise to bring home all combat personnel by mid-year. The job's done. The job's over. The Iraqi security forces started to step up to the plate in southern Iraq around about a year ago now. They are now confident and competent. A parade will be held later this month in Brisbane to honour the soldiers. I'm so proud of him - that's the main thing. A delay in reporting the latest aircraft laser attack has hampered police investigations. A Qantas Boeing 747 was targeted with a green laser as it flew into Sydney Airport from Melbourne last night, but authorities didn't notify police for two hours. The beam was spotted between Kings Cross and Royal Sydney Golf Course.

It was the third laser attack on aircraft this long weekend. A Federal Government ban on imports of high-intensity laser pointers takes effect next month. If you witness a breaking story and would like to see your pictures on Ten News:

We're interested in both photos and video. There are growing fears over a cloud-seeding experiment in the Snowy Mountains. While some are happy it seems to make more snow, there are worries about the chemical run-off affecting drinking water.

But scientists in the Snowy Mountains aren't cultivating land, they're harvesting clouds. is investigating Snowy Hydro Corporation if cloud seeding can generate more snow across the Australian Alps. For the past four winters, it's used technology to artificially tease falls from the skies. The expert opinion was that we were expecting a 10% increase in precipitation, and all of our results so far are supporting that increase. Sounds like science fiction, but cloud seeding for rain has been occurring in Tasmania and overseas for decades. We can't create extra clouds out of nowhere. We actually just use what Mother Nature has already given us. Snowy Hydro constantly monitors the weather. When conditions are right, 13 generators burn silver iodine, releasing crystals into the air. These attach to freezing water droplets in the clouds, forming snowflakes.

Some scientists say it's virtually impossible to distinguish between artificially generated snow and that which falls naturally. Environmentalists also have their concerns. The real concern is to do with silver iodine itself, and there's no real knowledge as to how it will impact upon the environment.

The trial has been extended until 2014 in the hope that successful seeding will defend the Alps against climate change, giving better ski seasons and extra snow melt for the Snowy Hydro-Electric Scheme and River Murray. Emily Rice, Ten News.

This program is captioned live.

Last year's Young Victorian of the Year A disturbed comic book fan who killed seven people in a stabbing frenzy in Japan warned of his actions on the Internet. The attacker told police he came to the busy Tokyo shopping district to kill people because he was "tired of life". Panic on the streets of the Japanese capital as the emergency services attend the scene of a massacre in a packed shopping centre battle to save lives. and, behind green screens,

It happened at lunchtime in Tokyo's Akihabara district, popular for its electronic stores. In the first few moments, it appeared to be a road accident, after the driver of a truck drove the vehicle into a crowd of pedestrians, running three over. But then, say witnesses, he jumped out and began screaming as he stabbed passers-by indiscriminately. This man said he saw people collapsing onto the street one after another. "Someone shouted," he said, "that he had been stabbed." These dramatic pictures show the moment the police arrested the suspect, named as 25-year-old Tomohiro Kato. Dressed in a cream suit, he is pinned to the ground. His blood-splattered face is visible as he is bundled by officers towards a police car. They later said the suspect had told them he was tired of life and sick of everything. Once-rare knife attacks have become more frequent in Japan in recent years, as violent crime increases. Today the country once more has to ask itself why. Nina Nannar, Ten News. Chinese soldiers have used military might to stop a mega flood threatening a million people. Troops fired rocket-propelled grenades at close range, clearing enough debris to drain water from a so-called quake-lake, formed during last month's earthquake in the Sichuan Province. The tactic was successful in widening the run-off channel. Authorities feared the lake could burst its banks and cause catastrophic flooding. There are fears 35 coalminers could drown, trapped underground after an explosion in the Ukraine. and ripped through the shafts of the Karl Marx mine. Rescuers can't get through the debris but have reported hearing voices from about 700m below the surface. Authorities say there's the risk of the shafts flooding within the next few hours. A strong earthquake has rocked south-western Greece, killing 2 people and injuring at least 50 more. The quake, measuring 6.5 on the Richter scale, struck near the western city of Patras. One man was killed when his home's roof collapsed on him, while an 80-year-old woman died of a heart attack brought on by the tremor. Authorities have warned residents to beware of possible aftershocks. Motorcycle daredevil Robbie Knievel has stopped traffic

at a speedway in Texas, performing another death-defying stunt. Knievel successfully jumped 21 Hummer vehicles, four less than he'd originally planned because of a strong headwind. The landing ramp protected though they were easily cleared by the 'Kaptain'. It's Knievel's second public jump since the death of his father, stuntman Evel Knievel, in November.

This program is captioned live. Kevin Rudd has used his Japanese visit to unveil a major international initiative to rid the world of nuclear weapons. The Prime Minister's announcement came after an emotional visit to Hiroshima, the city devastated by a nuclear bomb in World War II. According to the Mayor of Hiroshima, Kevin Rudd is the first serving Western leader to pay respects here. He's certainly the first Australian prime minister.

You can't come to this place and not be confronted by the sheer brutality of one bomb killing 140,000, laying waste to a city and destroying the lives of thousands more survivors. was profoundly moved, The Prime Minister his thoughts recorded in the visitors' book. Hiroshima should cause the world community to resolve afresh that all humankind must exert their every effort for peace in this 21st century. And he says the people of the Asia-Pacific should resolve to work together

for a world where nuclear weapons are no more. that was the message he took to Kyoto University after offering an olive branch to Japanese feelings. (SPEAKS JAPANESE) (APPLAUSE) That's the extent of my Japanese. Mr Rudd retraced the Australia-Japan relationship, reaffirming its importance and restating his commitment to it. and specially singled out our past cooperation on nuclear disarmament. I announce today that Australia proposes to establish an international commission and disarmament. on nuclear non-proliferation Former foreign minister Gareth Evans will be a co-chair. for others to join him and will seek Japanese involvement. The statistics on nuclear weapons are chilling - there are 10,000 nuclear warheads and another 20,000 in storage, Kevin Rudd says, any one more powerful than the bomb that devastated Hiroshima. Australia, with most of the world's known uranium reserves, has a big stake in eliminating nuclear weapons and the PM makes it clear our uranium will not be going to India unless it signs the non-proliferation treaty. The university audience applauded but a nagging question remained. What do you think about Japan? Japan is a fantastic country. In Kyoto, Paul Bongiorno, Ten News. A young netball player is looking forward to returning to the court despite fearing she may never play again. Doctors have swapped her bones to treat her cancer. 14-year-old Katie-Lee Brown's sore arm was fixed Last November she thought it was just broken, but it proved to be much more serious - cancer. I hit my arm in my sleep and then the next day I woke up and it was just red and, like, really puffy and bruising. Six weeks ago two teams of surgeons at Sydney's Children's Hospital at Randwick

took five hours to remove the arm bone and fit one of two leg bones as a replacement. It's an operation that is rarely performed. It's looking good - a lot less swollen than before. Dr David Ziegler is pleased with the progress. She had this very large tumour in the forearm - all this white area extending almost all the way from her elbow right down to her wrist. She then had very intensive chemotherapy, which she responded really well to, and as a result of that The bone swap has gone smoothly. It's lucky that we all come with a few spare parts and she can get around perfectly normally without having this bone in her leg. Katie-Lee and her family are from South West Rocks, so months in Sydney away from family and friends is a burden, but her mum is hoping the worst is behind them. It's because you just don't know what's round the corner. Each day it's a different outcome, yeah, but looking positive as each day goes past. If there are no more serious setbacks the next three or four months here, Katie-Lee will still have to spend but she's confident - and so are her doctors - that she'll be home for Christmas. But she has plans to go back to the netball court. Hopefully my arm will be able to do everything, but I won't have the strength I did in it. But hopefully I've got most of it back. So you'll have to do weights. (LAUGHS) Yep. Kevin Wilde, Ten News. Virgin Blue could soon be charging passengers to check in their luggage.

It severely damaged more than two dozen houses of around 50 people and forced the evacuation from an aged care home.

We play Penrith on Friday night and they also got beat, so it's gonna be two teams that are pretty desperate. Fullback Anthony Minichiello says he's confident he'll see out the season despite his ongoing back problem getting a torrid workout yesterday. More suspension worries for the North Queensland Cowboys, with stand-in halfback Travis Burns facing a minimum four weeks on the sidelines. Burns was today hit with a dangerous throw charge as well as a high tackle charge out of Saturday night's loss to the Wests Tigers. And Canberra prop Scott Logan is facing a minimum 3-week ban for a dangerous throw on Parramatta's Luke Burt. Sydney's Adam Goodes after the Match Review Panel gave his report a low grading. Goodes went into the umpire's book early in Saturday night's dramatic win over the Eagles for this hit on Adam Selwood. But an early guilty plea will see him escape with a reprimand. The result is sure to provoke a negative reaction from other clubs, with Goodes previously escaping suspension for other incidents. And Melbourne's lean year has continued at the hands of Collingwood - the Magpies souring the Demons' 150-year celebration with a 21-point win at the MCG. the great Bjorn Borg's record Rafael Nadal has equalled of four consecutive after defeating Roger Federer in the final at Roland Garros. The Spaniard clinically dismantled the world's best in straight sets. As the French Air Force painted the sky above Roland Garros, beneath them Rafael Nadal began work on his clay masterpiece. Taking on the world's best for the third successive time in the Paris final, the Spaniard made it look easy. COMMENTATOR: It's too good. Nadal blitzed through the opening set 6-1 in 32 minutes, before Federer finally found some form.

Well, that's what it takes. Just an unbelievable angle. The Swiss Master broke back to square the second set... ..and he appeared to be getting back into the match. Well done. But Nadal quickly extinguished Federer's fire. Oh, that's quick. The world number two combined deft touch... Stop it. ..with a barrage of heavy hitting to wipe his opponent off the court and set up a historic fourth consecutive French Open title. It's long. I didn't expect one match like this, no?
