There are new pictures of a man wanted over the sexual or indecent assaults of six teenage girls. He's of Asian or Middle Eastern appearance,

in his late teens or early twenties, 170 centimetres tall, slim-to-medium build, with buck teeth. police believe it is the same person. The assaults occurred in Sydney's west and north-west over the past two months. Investigators say the man assaulted the girls after threatening them with a knife at bus stops. Anyone with information should call the police. is expected to hit $1.70 a litre within the next week. It follows yet another record surge in the cost of oil and the impact will be felt far beyond the pump. In Europe, the rising cost of fuel and food

had people marching in the streets. The news out of New York overnight could only inflame their mood as crude oil surged to just under US$140 a barrel.

Jittery traders were spooked by a fire on a North Sea oil platform, by Saudi Arabia lifting supply by 200,000 barrels a day. At 200,000, 300,000, 400,000 you're just kind of keeping pace with the demand that's out there. You're not really building supplies and if there's any disruption you're going to see the prices pop. It did drop back, but it's not good news for motorists here,

queuing today for the cheaper fuel of the week. The bottom line for Australians is that the oil price remains very high, whether it's $134 a barrel or $139, which it got to at one point overnight. And that may make this seem like a bargain when it flows through.

Sometime in the next week or so Australian motorists will be paying $1.70 a litre at the pump. But it's not just pain at the petrol pump. Oil has been one of the key factors that's helped double the cost of food across the globe in the past eight years. And, as any Australian shopper knows, we're not immune from that. Farmers in central western New South Wales have begun sowing winter crops. The harvest outlook is promising but prices will almost certainly rise to meet increased costs. The fact that we don't have in many rural areas opportunities to use other forms of transport. and petrol in our farming practice really does have a very big impact

on our businesses and of course the cost of producing food for the nation. And it won't be helped by flooding in the US wiping out grain crops, adding pressure on world supplies. Eddy Meyer, Ten News. Swimmer Nick D'Arcy has lost his final chance to join the Olympic team in Beijing. The Court of Arbitration for Sport today upheld the AOC's decision A shattered former champion says he'll now cheer from home.

It was not just about me, it was about achieving more for my country, more for my team and more for everyone that sacrificed to get me here.

D'Arcy's court date on the brawl that landed him in trouble has also been delayed. The witnesses will be in Beijing. The 20-year-old swimmer says he hasn't thrown in the towel completely. Pending the outcome of his court case he might yet aim for the Commonwealth Games in two years. In sport with Brad McEwan, the Wests Tigers won't be banning Benji Marshall from going to Kings Cross. That's right, Deb, it follow's Benji Marshall's confrontation with a fellow nightclub patron. While the Wests Tigers have praised Benji's handling of the incident, leading league figures believe the Cross should be off limits for the safety of players. Marshall introduced a new sidestep to avoid questioning today. Benji, any comment about - (LAUGHS) But there was no escaping these pictures of flashpoint in the early hours of Monday morning. The Kiwi international embroiled in a scuffle at the Sapphire Lounge nightclub after socialising with Eels players. Marshall says he was just a victim and didn't throw any punches. It's the second time in two years Marshall has been involved in a late-night altercation. Still his club won't be imposing a Kings Cross ban. There's these sort of activities happening in the Cross every night of the week. should I be the crusader that tries to solve the problems of the world? I don't think that's realistic. What I've got to do is talk to the players. The Cross has been a hot spot for a host of rugby league incidents, most recently the attempted shooting of Eels winger Jarryd Hayne just blocks away from the Saphire Lounge. On the same night the club owner took a bullet in the leg. For the nearby Rosters the area is a There's been many cases where I've been having a beer and wanted to go somewhere else when it's been past 12:00

and the only place open is the Cross.

I just go home - it's saved me a fair bit. Mason also agreed with suggestions Marshall was targeted for financial gain, with the instigators cashing in for their set-up photos. Those wankers out there always want to start on Benji

like he's got a sign on his head. Just 'cause he's not as big as the other blokes they seem to give him a fair bit of lip. Police here at Kings Cross have now launched an investigation into the incident. They currently lack evidence to lay charges and have called for any witnesses to come forward. Scott Mackinnon, Ten News. Shortly in sport, more reaction plus another day of drama for Tiger Woods. but it's ended in what he's described All the US Open play-off highlights coming up, plus Woods's emotional response.

Horrifying details have emerged over twin toddlers whose starved bodies have been found more than a week after they died. The parents have been charged with failing to provide the necessities of life. For more than a week the malnourished, decomposing bodies of the 18-month-old twins lay in their cots at this Sunnybank Hills home. The children were deceased. Police are treating the death of these two children as suspicious.

The little girl and boy were discovered last night when their grandmother came to visit. I think it's disgusting. I feel bad, I should have done something.

she found them dead more than a week ago. It was her 11-year-old daughter who noticed a bad smell coming from the twins' room. She said to her mother, "I know why you've been crying now." The twins were the size of new born babies, both weighed around four kilos. They were only ever bottle fed and rarely had their nappies changed. Their mother's only explanation, "I don't think I fed them enough". The couple has four other children. they were regularly left alone. Neighbours say A number of times I've said, "look, does your mother know you're here", and sent them home. They just never looked after their kid. He used to come around here asking me for water. Those siblings are now in the care of their grandparents. Neighbours now feel a deep sense of regret they didn't do more to help the children. They say, in the time the family had lived here there were plenty of warning signs things were not right. You end up quite shell-shocked in your neighbourhood. And as I said, maybe someone had contacted authorities, who knows? But I tell you what, next time I will be making a phone call. Chloe Symons, Ten News. A western Sydney home found filled with cannabis last week has gone up in flames, in what police believe may be an attempt by a drug gang to destroy evidence. A neighbour captured these pictures on his mobile phone

as the fire took hold at around 11:00 last night. The house was destroyed in the blaze. It was one of 10 properties which police raided last week, seizing hundreds of cannabis plants. But detectives say they removed all the evidence from the home before the fire was lit. If you witness a breaking story and would like to see your pictures on Ten News, email them to:

We're interested in both photos and video. It's one of the world's oldest contemporary art festivals and. as usual, the Sydney Biennale has plenty to shock and surprise. Its seven venues set to turn the city into a giant art gallery. Bubble bubble, toil and trouble - the 2008 Sydney Biennale has it all. The bubbles are part of the moving sculpture Cloud Canyons. The toil? 1.5 years work lining up 180 exhibits of contemporary art at seven venues around Sydney.

And the trouble? The controversy some of them will no doubt generate. Like this real stuffed horse by Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan. The horse is suspended from the ceiling, unable to run and it is therefore a reversal - a revolution equestrian sculpture. As well as featuring new works of art the festival also features some older works. and that work When I selected that artist so there is no connection between the two. 'No Future' is a work featuring four women in their 80s singing the Sex Pistols' 'God Save the Queen'. Sings 'God Save the Queen.' Free ferries will transport art fans to Cockatoo Island where there's more to discover, including a mobile of animals made from pieces of luggage.

Gordon Brown announced the deployment of an extra 230 soldiers after a meeting with President Bush on the day the bodies of five British soldiers were returned home. They were killed in Afghanistan last week. It is in the British national interest

to confront the Taliban in Afghanistan or Afghanistan would come to us. George W. Bush wrapped up his farewell tour of Europe in Northern Ireland. And with the serious business out of the way, the President tried to show off his basketball skills during a visit to a primary school in Belfast. Former vice-president Al Gore has backed Barack Obama as the next president of the United States. The Nobel peace prize winner officially endorsed the Senator as the Democratic candidate at a rally in Detroit. He also accused the Bush Administration of incompetence and neglect. After eight years of the worst, most serious, foreign policy mistakes in the entire history of our nation, we need change.

The endorsement has renewed speculation that the climate change crusader could be on the Senator's list of prospective running mates. Prince William has had a taste of his future, parading the streets of Windsor in an extraordinary outfit as the newest Knight of the Garter. The ceremony signalled his position in the royal family and his girlfriend's importance in his life. The most exclusive and noble club in Britain also happens to have the most elaborate uniform. Its newest and youngest member, Prince William, certainly looked the part, parading the streets of Windsor in dark blue velvet robes and a ostrich feather bonnet. His outfit matched his grandmother's as she installed him as the 1,000th Knight of the prestigious Order of the Garter. It's an ancient but essential rite of passage in preparation for his future public duty as King. Dressed demurely in black, trying her best to avoid the cameras, Kate Middleton watched from a distance as her Prince became a Knight. So instead of his girlfriend, William had his stepmother on hand to assist with his headwear, meaning there was no fumbling with feathers like Prince Charles did exactly 40 years ago. The 660-year-old Order boasts many senior members of the royal family. They join past prime ministers and others honoured for serving the nation and the Queen. The Prince will be making the most of all this pomp and ceremony while he still can. He'll spend the next two months in a far less glamourous environment, serving with the British Navy as a rookie sailor. It's not until next year he takes up royal duties full time. At Windsor Castle, Danielle Isdale, Ten News. A quadriplegic sailor is taking on an extraordinary challenge. She'll sail solo around the coast of Britain in a boat she controls with her breath. On the water Hillary Lister has the freedom that she can never experience on land. One of the world's most extraordinary sailors, she is able to move only her head and controls her boat with just her breath. But she has already broken records, sailing solo across the English Channel and around the Isle of Wight. Now she is going solo around the entire coast of Britain. On land if I want to look at my boat I need to get someone to take my brakes off, turn me around, put my brakes back on. Out there, if I want to have a look at the cliffs or turnaround or change my course, I can do it all myself. It is utter freedom, it is incredible. Once able-bodied, Hillary has a condition called reflex sympathetic dystrophy. Sailing has changed everything.

This is how it is done.

A sip-and-puff system of three straws which control her tiller and sails. These are attached to pressure switches which are attached to electronics which control the autopilot, the wenches, all the normal functions of a boat. And there she goes. about three months in that boat Hillary intends to spend completing this extraordinary challenge. She does of course, have a support team

both on land and at sea, but she says she wants them to stay as far away from her as possible. This is one adventure she intends to complete almost entirely alone. Hillary's condition is progressive For now she is sailing on, living her dream. Next, why rising petrol prices could force up interest rates.

A street racer has owned up to his role in the crash which killed an elderly couple at St Marys last year. Alan and Judith Howle's family was in court for the guilty plea. But they were faced with distressing evidence, as another driver maintained his innocence. Witnesses say cars were flying. A booklet telling school kids how to experiment with drugs - has been pulled from publication. The Health Department flyers have been doing the rounds for two years, to the shock of parents. John Della Bosca has fronted Parliament over the Iguana Joes nightclub scandal which saw him stood down as Education Minister. He refused to apologise, maintaining his actions were above board. He says any of his colleagues would have done the same in the circumstances. There's good news for home buyers it is getting inflation under control. But there could be trouble if petrol prices keep going up. Just one month ago interest rates were on a knife edge. Now with the economy slowing and consumer confidence plunging, the Reserve Bank board believes the rate hikes have done the job. The Reserve's pretty happy with trends at the moment. We spend most on retail spending and that's slowed very notably. The good news for homeowners comes in the release of the RBA board's explanation for why it kept rates on hold this month. Despite the board's ongoing concerns about inflation, it believes the current policy to moderate demand is succeeding. It is good news, you're safe for a few months, not necessarily out of the woods yet. Inflation risks remain very high. The one dark cloud remains petrol - the Reserve warning soaring prices could be the inflationary trigger for another rate hike. Brendan Nelson's future also remains under a cloud. He rallied his party room by telling them Australians are no longer starry-eyed by Kevin Rudd. But it's his star which continues to wane under bad polls. He's plunged four points as preferred prime minister = now 55 points behind Kevin Rudd. The Government accusing Malcolm Turnbull of using focus groups at this Melbourne market research company to gauge opinion on his leadership credentials. He's either paying for the research on himself or the Liberal Party's doing it, but either way even the Leader of the Opposition doesn't know about it. Even his own MPs now setting a deadline on Dr Nelson's leadership. We usually stick with the football team for about a year before they keep losing. Next weekend's Gippsland by-election is looming as the make or break result for the Opposition Leader. Brad Hodson, Ten News.

To some breaking news and Qantas is axing several regional routes because of rising jet fuel prices. Wollongong and Newcastle are two of the centres worst affected, losing links to Melbourne and Sydney from July 18. To the BankWest finance report and the market finished 46 points higher. The average price of petrol in Sydney is $1.56. The cheapest we could find it was $1.50 a litre at Sylvania Heights and Smithfield. Superannuation experts have ruled out any chance of positive super fund returns two weeks out from the end of the financial year.

The cream of Australia's music industry was in song last night for the annual APRA awards. Daniel Johns, Silverchair's flamboyant frontman, took out the trifecta, named Songwriter of the Year for a record third time.

over his involvement in a scuffle in a Kings Cross nightclub. But he's been advised to be smarter about where he spends his nights out. Just like the early hours of yesterday, Benji Marshall was ducking and weaving today.

But from at least one fellow player, sympathy about the situation he found himself in. He's a fiery little dude and blokes that are gonna provoke him are gonna get some back. The police have said

in this particular case there was provocation of the kid. The kid handled himself really well. The Tigers won't be following the Sydney Roosters by banning its players from Kings Cross. They believe that telling young men to restrict their social lives just doesn't work.

I think it's about balance, accountability and responsibility and we continue to talk to these young players about that all the time. A word of advice for Marshall from someone who's seen it all. You've gotta be smarter about where he goes and what time he goes. as well It deals him a pretty good lifestyle and he's gotta understand there's gotta be a bit of give and take in there. There's camera phones and there's people out there and they try to provoke you and bang, they snap that photo. It's quite annoying but it's just society now. Leanne West, Ten News. Tiger Woods has moved one step closer to Jack Nicklaus's record of 18 major golf titles, his 14th coming after 19 play-off holes at the US Open. The win maintaining Woods's ominous record of winning majors when leading after three rounds. A day after the Americans celebrated Father's Day, Tiger Woods tore himself away from daughter Sam to cradle the US Open trophy I lost my dad a couple of years ago and I know how special it was in 2002 for me to bring this home, talk to him about it and share it with him. I can't do that anymore First he'd had to endure the standard 18-hole play-off and more, the world number one at times looking pedestrian while his 158th-ranked opponent, Rocco Mediate, continued to punch above his weight. Ha-ha! Rocco slipped midway through the round. Tiger pounced, 3 shots ahead after 10. Oh! Another stroke of genius by Tiger. But the 45-year-old Mediate wouldn't give up. He went 1 ahead at 15,

knocking down a Tiger-like putt for a third straight birdie. Back and forth, back and forth and 90 holes wasn't enough,

we had to go one more. All square after 18, just the third sudden death in US Open history. Woods unable to seal victory with a trademark long birdie bomb. to keep his hopes alive. Mediate needed this Tiger Woods perseveres through Torrey Pines and wins a third Us Open championship. I got what I wanted - I got a chance to beat the best player in the world and I came up just a touch short but I think I had him a little scared at once which was great. This couldn't have been - this is probably the greatest tournament I've ever had. Anthony Goodridge, Ten News. Australia has wrapped up the third Test against the West Indies, winning by 87 runs. The hosts launched a blistering attack in the morning session before the Aussie bowlers closed out the series just before tea. the West Indies gave it an early nudge.

A 2-nil series win, the Frank Worrell trophy still in Australian hands. Test cricket played, I think right through the last three Test matches. a Twenty20 international on Friday. Paul Cochrane, Ten News. Australian Olympic officials are defending the decision to ban Aussie athletes from marching in the Opening Ceremony. The track and field team won't march with Athletics Australia originally blaming China's pollution problems. But they've since backtracked, saying it has nothing to do with the city's smog.
