The case now adjourns for one week. Amber Muir, Ten News. The case against runaway teenager Natasha Ryan has heard she knew all about the huge hunt to find her. She told police she'd read about a man being charged with her murder but was too scared to come out of hiding. When Natasha Ryan re-entered the world after five years in hiding she had some explaining to do. In a police interview played in Rockhampton Court today, Ryan admitted she learned from a newspaper that Leonard Fraser had been charged with her murder while she was hiding in her boyfriend's house. But she still didn't come forward saying: When asked if she ever tried to call police, Ryan said: The day she was found Ryan says she heard a knock at the door and hid in the cupboard, because she didn't want to be found like that. But she couldn't stay hidden forever. Natasha's reappearance shocked her grieving parents. Her father had even held a memorial service. Today he broke down, saying he'll never forget the day she was found alive. Well, someone reckons I'm the only bloke in Australia that had a funeral for a person and they come back from the dead. Serial killer Leonard Fraser told detectives he'd slit Ryan's throat and buried her body. Ryan's lawyers argue it was that confession which sparked the costly murder investigation, and not the young couple keeping Natasha's whereabouts a secret. The hearing has been adjourned for a week.

Emma Dallimore, Ten News. Australia's relationship with Indonesia is under the spotlight, Labor urging the Prime Minister to turn the heat up on Jakarta over terror figurehead Abu Bakar Bashir. But tonight Indonesia says we should just butt out. It is an image causing anger across Australia.

Abu Bakar Bashir basking in the adulation of his followers. At Friday prayers the radical cleric told them not to worry about being labelled 'terrorists' - this at an Islamic school known for producing some of Indonesia's deadliest militants. It may appear inflammatory here, not in Indonesia. Mr Bashir has been prosecuted, has been tried and has been punished. Logically he is a free man and he has to be released. Howard meets Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono in 10 days. The Opposition says he should seek action against terror group Jemaah Islamiah which sees Bashir as its spiritual leader. He must require and request the Indonesian President to ban Jemaah Islamiah as an organisation.

Indonesia may not be willing to listen, though. Indonesia will not allow ourselves to be dictated by other countries. Mr Howard has sent a letter to the President explaining the hostility caused by the early release of the cleric, but he says Indonesia's position has to be acknowledged. It is not right to say they haven't done anything. He has been in jail for 2.5 years

and he was not convicted of direct involvement in the Bali attack. Indonesia's apparent unwillingness to take into account Australian concerns, will no doubt further anger those who believe we've caved in to theirs with planned changes to our migration laws. The Prime Minister rejects the criticism but is still negotiating with rebel Liberals who feel the laws go too far. So that's what we're doing at the moment, taking it very seriously.

Those talks expected to continue next week. Eddy Meyer, Ten News. A soldier wounded in Afghanistan has been brought home to Australia for medical treatment. The soldier's identity, the nature of his injury and details of the incident are being kept secret for security reasons. And Australian soldiers are winding back their duties in southern Iraq. They'll start handing over to Iraqi forces this month but it doesn't mean they'll be withdrawing. A new life ahead for the kitten abused and left for dead by her drug-addicted owner. While he spends a year in jail, little Katie is settling into a loving home. Katie the kitten is thriving

almost six months after being bashed and left for dead. She's now being cared for by Paul and his wife, Tracey. It's just great to see the fact that an animal who has gone through so much comes out the other side being so happy and so healthy. This was Katie in early February, 12 weeks old and recovering from injuries including a broken pelvis and a shattered eye socket. It was a slow recovery and there were complications, but that's all behind her. It never ceases to amaze me what animals can endure. Certainly, this particular attack was horrific. Her one-time owner, Stephen Clancy, is spending 12 months behind bars for torturing Katie. Well, I've got nothing to say about him personally, but the laws are toughening up and hopefully will put these things to rest. That's also the RSPCA's hope. The society believes the increase in prison terms to a maximum of five years for animal cruelty, plus stronger cooperation with police will make a difference. So if someone is picked up for committing an act of animal cruelty, further down the track at least there's a record of that on the police system. For her part, little Katie has landed on her feet and won't suffer again. Not ruling the roost, but she's found a little place in the house and everybody loves her.

Kevin Wilde, Ten News. The PM is backing moves for a World Cup in Australia in 2014. But there's a far more pressing matter at hand -

our looming showdown with Brazil. This is a scene being repeated right across Germany, this time it's dedicated Dutch fans flanked by scores of police waiting for their favourite players. For Australia, all roads lead to Munich this weekend

as we prepare for the big match against Brazil after the latest celebration in Oehringen. Let the good times flow

The Socceroos are the toast of Oehringen, where they turned a public holiday into a green and gold festival. A mix of German and Australian traditions going down well. (All sing) # Advance Australia fair. # Go the Socceroos! While our first-up performance had them dancing in the streets, our football bosses sense we're on the verge of something very special. That inner belief now is so ingrained in them that when you sit down and talk to them one on one, you know, it's the most satisfying experience I've had. The Aussie festival in the heart of Oehringen has attracted hundreds of Australian tourists. Among the crowd, the wife of one of our highest profile players. Harry Kewell's wife, Sheree Murphy, revealing a family day spent with the Socceroos has given the whole squad a huge lift before the Brazil clash.

We haven't seen each other for probably about three to four weeks now, and he hasn't seen the kids, so all the families were so happy.

The Kewells have two children, Taylor, five, and Ruby, aged three, and there's no doubt who they're barracking for. My loyalties lie with Harry and Australia, definitely. The importance of catching up with loved ones also stressed by Lucas Neill's parents. We really haven't talked too much about him about the game. We've just had family time together and it's been absolutely fantastic. They know what's happening around them and they can feel the buzz. Here in Stuttgart preparations are already under way for what could prove to be, one of the most volatile matches in World Cup history with the possibility that the host nation Germany will take on England in the second round on June 25. If Japan get a simple majority at this meeting, it means that the IWC is in the whalers' hands for the first time since the 1970s, and that is a disaster for whales.

When we come back, fears of a return to commercial whaling. It's just got so much character and history It is beautiful, it's a beautiful part of the world. And the Australians making the ultimate seachange.

Hon, what's your ultimate fantasy?

With all the grunt of a big Rodeo V6, and good enough for the weekends too. Is that all? No, I want it all from $19,990. and government charges.

This program is captioned live. A woman has been stabbed to death in Melbourne tonight. Police say the victim arrived at a medical centre suffering wounds to her neck. The woman, believed to be Sudanese, died at the scene shortly afterwards. A man who turned up with her at the centre

is now being questioned by Victorian police. Australia is scrambling for votes

to stop a return to commercial whaling.

On the eve of an international summit, it's feared Japan may have the numbers to overturn the 20-year ban. It will be a night of last-minute lobbying for Environment Minister Ian Campbell,

who is heading up the international fight to save the whales. This vote is important. Losing it would be a tragedy.

It would see Japan, which, in the name of scientific research, slaughtered 863 whales last year, including 10 endangered species, in control of the industry's governing body. If Japan get a simple majority at this meeting, it means that the IWC is in the whalers' hands for the first time since the 1970s, and that is a disaster for whales. To win the numbers game, Japan is accused of buying votes by providing foreign aid to small, poor countries, such as St Kitts in the Caribbean, where the summit is being held.

Of the 70 countries eligible to vote, 36 are said to support Japan,

but it would need a 75% majority to overturn the ban immediately. Japan will put its numbers to the test tomorrow when it's expected to call for Greenpeace to be banned from the organisation. Australia has not ruled out taking Japan to an international court to try to stop the killing. There is no reason to destroy them, there is no reason to spill the blood that they've spilled. The Japanese delegation refused to comment before the crucial meeting begins tomorrow. In St Kitts, Leisa Goddard-Roles, Ten News. A lone humpback swimming close to Gold Coast beaches has kept whale watchers enthralled with its unusual behaviour. It was thought it was giving birth but so far there's no sign of a baby.

It's a mystery of mammoth proportions. What was this whale doing so close to the Gold Coast shoreline? You don't see the whales in that close very often. Is it sick or not? First sighted at 7:30 this morning near shark drum lines at Burleigh,

the humpback attracted the attention of beach goers with it's unusual behaviour. Today it just seemed to be remaining in the one spot and not breaching the surface of the water like we normally see.

While whales aren't rare this time of year, it's unusual to see

one of these gentle giants just lolling around on the surface unless they're in trouble. Fisheries officers checked out the giant visitor and reported seeing red stains in the water. It appeared that due to the size of the whale and the way the whale was acting that it could've been giving birth to a calf. But there was no sign of a new arrival and no obvious injuries. The lone humpback was last seen slowly heading north on it's usual migration. And as for why it was behaving this way, well that's destined to remain a mystery of the deep. Andrew Leahy, Ten News. Australians are making the ultimate seachange, snapping up property in the south of France. One big attraction of finding property on the other side of the world is the bargain basement price. It doesn't get much more French provincial than this. Three hours from Paris, the beaches of Spain and the Italian border, and Mal Sword knew he had to have it. The base of the house, they have the old caves where they used to put the animals, and that will eventually become our wine cellar but it's just beautiful. Absolutely - it's gorgeous, just beautiful. It's like stepping back into a different time. Three Brisbane families bought equal shares in the renovated 13th century cottage near Bordigett in southern France for about $300,000. And they're already looking for another one. We haven't bought this for investment, we bought this as a haven, and a gateway through to Europe. It's a lifestyle choice. It's a lifestyle more than an investment. This is no one-off. France has become the new real estate hot spot

and these people are helping make it happen. You can buy a renovation project if you've got a strong heart and a strong will. We can buy a renovation project for around $100,000 up to a chateau at $2 million - 2.5 million, $3 million, $4 million. Apart from the attraction of owning a piece of French 13th century architecture, the numbers has Queenslanders more than interested as well. 100% finance, fixed at around 3%. and values currently on the increase at 12% annually. It's just got so much character and history It is beautiful, it's a beautiful part of the world. Tim Collits, Ten News. The new Superman movie getting off to a flying start. Seeing some of the visual effects come back and how I was flying is, you know, really pretty awesome. After the break, the man who plays the Man of Steel. And the bizarre case of the bare-chested bandit.

But Brad has a bright idea. BRAD: If we bundle four services with ActewAGL and TransACT, we'll get a free Privileges Card, saving us 20% to 50% at over 200 restaurants and attractions, plus we'll save 10% off our electricity account! Start saving now.

This program is captioned live. Dozens of people have been injured in a basketball riot.

As riot police moved in about 40 people crashed out of a stand. The clash between the rival supporters later spilled out onto the streets. It's two weeks before the Man of Steel

returns to our big screens, but his alter-alter ego is already here, the actor flying in to talk up the most expensive movie ever made. June 29 is the day we can look up in the sky to see Superman return.

But today you'd have been better off looking inside this Sydney hotel room. It's great to be back. Despite wrapping up filming here in Sydney last November, Brandon only got to see the movie last Friday, the day it was finished. Seeing some of the visual effects come back and how I was flying is, you know, really pretty awesome. It's a 2.5-hour adventure with plenty of surprises, including a cameo by the late Marlon Brando.

Sydney's streets barely recognisable after being digitally transformed into Metropolis,

all adding to the astronomical cost of the movie. We hear tell that this is the most - What do you hear tell? That this is the most expensive movie ever made. Go on! I think a lot of the exaggerations are just inaccurate. People don't spend $300 million to make movies. I'm sorry. They just don't. Allegedly, whatever the final bill, it also included some digital manipulation to minimise a protrusion on the famous Superman suit.

There's been so much speculation about the codpiece on the costume. Do you want to clear any of that up? Yes, a little weird but, you know, I'll stop those rumours. That's not happened. They had, they had a lot more things to spend money on than to worry about that. For a relative unknown like Brandon,

having Kevin Spacey play villain Lex Luthor was reassuring. Well, just knowing that he was willing to do this film with me, I mean, you know, because he had to trust that I could pull this off. Otherwise, he could look bad. So long, Superman. Angela Bishop, Ten News. To Finance news, and a remarkable rally for the Australian stock market.

The Adelaide Crows have underlined their premiership credentials, dishing out a hiding to St Kilda at Telstra Dome. The Crows dominated from start to finish,

inflicting a 63-point belting with a 10 and 2 record. and going into the week's break during the week Adelaide had been talking finals it was easy to see why. and within the opening minutes, sizes them up and goes wham! Stevens runs to 49, and he gets the Crows' second. Riley steps inside 50 While the Crows could do no wrong getting into the game, the Saints took their time needed goal for him and St Kilda.

and their tackling was superb, I thought they hit us really hard and the pressure they put on us even made us compound a little bit any pressure on us. when we didn't have at Suncorp Stadium. It was a dramatic night

a 2-point win against Brisbane St George-Illawarra stealing in the dying stages. But it wasn't without controversy, assisting the Dragons to victory. a suspected forward pass backing up from Wednesday night. Brisbane had six Queensland players a State of Origin hangover If there was stunning St George Illawarra. it didn't show with an early try COMMENTATOR: Lockyer drifting, Carmichael Hunt, goes back to the second man,

Berrigan! He's done it again! find the line? Shaun Berrigan. Oh, can't he score a try? Can't he extended the lead to 8-0 A Darren Lockyer penalty to their name, with four straight wins with a contentious try the Dragons in form and responding appeared to be a forward pass backrower Ben Creagh throwing what in the lead-up. That ball's gone forward.

Cooper will score. He didn't stop and check,

Cooper scores. Dragons are in. the spotlight from Matt Cooper's try. Creagh's controversial pass stealing

The Broncos up 8-6. More pain for Brisbane with St George Illawarra coming up with a 5-star 4-pointer. Now Colin Best is flying down the right side. Colin Best, he will score. So close for Darius Boyd, denied this try as the hosts went in to half-time down 12-8.

Luke Bailey's corked thigh a concern for the Dragons. but he later returned. Their defence had problems early in the second h alf. Greg Eastwood unstoppable - 12-12. Now they find Eastwood out in the centres. Eastwood will score. More controversy with referee Tony Archer ruling a knock on against Brisbane before reversing the call and penalising St George Illawara for stripping.

The penalty Lockyer's second for the half, the Broncos ahead 16-12. That lead wasn't enough. St George finished on a high, Brett Morris levelling the scores in the 77th minute. Morris has scored. The Dragons are home. Aaron Gorrell converted from the sideline to seal a stunning 2-point win. Away she goes! I don't know! Yes I do, it's a goal! A kick to remember - the final score 18 points to 16. The Broncos gutted with the loss and furious with the officials failing to call 'that pass' forward. The frustrating thing, the officials are on the ground, you've got linesmen and referee, I was in the box 30m behind the play, and everyone in the box said, "How far forward is that?"

as it passed his hands. So the disappointing thing is the officials, they can't get it right. When you put so much effort into something and you come up empty, it, it, it hurts. But we'll bounce back. The Socceroos have had one last hit-out before embarking on their trip to Munich and the ultimate showdown with Brazil. There was one notable absentee, though, Harry Kewell didn't train with the side. Sports Tonight's Neil Cordy has the latest. Yes, thanks. Just over 48 hours before the Socceroos' biggest test of their lives when they take on five-times world champions Brazil. They had their final training session here in Oehringen before heading to Munich this afternoon. And while all 23 of the squad members trained

it must be said Harry Kewell looked a long way off top fitness as he tested out his injured groin on a number of occasions. Guus Hiddink says it's time to rest a number of the players

that are on yellow cards. But Tim Cahill the goalscorer believes they should go with their best team. We could actually go through on this game and you don't know what Japan and Croatia are going to do. If it's a draw and we draw then it's all there for the taking, there'll be goal differences and that, so we've just got to be positive. Whoever plays, yellow card or no yellow card, it doesn't change a thing. Cahill's confidence is mirrored throughout the team. The man who could be the busiest player during the match - keeper Mark Schwarzer - believes Australia can't be intimidated. It's going to be a very difficult game but we have to be careful not to get too carried away about the game itself. We have to take the game in context. It's a group game, another three points up for grabs. Tony Popovic was part of the Australian team which beat Brazil 1-0 in the 2001 Confederations Cup. He learnt from that match, and Brazil's 1-0 win over Croatia. If you get right in their faces and make it difficult for them and force them into decisions that they wouldn't take normally then there is a chance.

Apart from Harry Kewell's groin the rest of the squad looks in top shape. for what will be the high point of their careers. Another match to look out for which could be a ripper is the potential of England playing Germany If both teams play in their current positions they will meet in the round of 16. I'll be back with more tomorrow night. England has qualified for the second round, but was far from convincing

in its 2-0 defeat of Trinidad and Tobago. Both goals came in the final seven minutes. Sweden also relied on a late goal to defeat Paraguay. While Ecuador impressed against Costa Rica. England's crusade was full of frustration. COMMENTATOR: He's a long way away from his target. Only a desperate John Terry clearance

prevented Trinidad and Tobago going one up. And for Sydney FC's Dwight Yorke, a rude awakening. I think Dwight would be grateful if we cut off this particular shot. England's lacklustre performance had the crowd chanting for change. "Rooney, Rooney" is the cry from England fans. The wish granted in the 58th minute. But seven minutes from time, relief.

And Crouch this time! Stephen Gerrard then put the result beyond doubt. They have found the touch - Stephen Gerrard.

You know, we can get better than this and we hope there's better to come, and we know there's better to come. England fans celebrated long into the night Their next round opponents either Germany or Ecuador, which impressed against Costa Rica. COMMENTATOR: Mendez! Right on the money! In the Ecuador capital, the 3-0 victory was celebrated as the country's greatest ever sporting achievement. Yellow also the colour of triumph along the fan mile in Berlin. It was sooooo good!
