His department today announcing a tribunal

to hear the cases of 250 officers who went AWOL during the crisis. On his seventh tour of hurricane-affected areas

President Bush assured locals he's getting help there as quickly as he can. I heard loud and clear from the parish presidents and the mayors that people are getting frustrated, and I understand that frustration. But not fast enough for the thousands who remain homeless and thousands more still without food, water or electricity. Their response was pathetic, you know, but they allowed this to happen. In Washington, Congress unleashed its fury on Michael Brown, former head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, who was forced to resign in the wake of Katrina. You folks fell on your face. You get an F minus, in my book.

Michael Brown says the catastrophic response in New Orleans was not his fault. I've overseen over 150 presidentially-declared disasters. I know what I'm doing and I think I do a pretty darn good job of it. Brown blames state and local officials for not articulating their needs. I very strongly personally regret that I was unable to persuade Governor Blanco and Mayor Nagin to sit down, get over their differences and work together. He admitted the inability to evacuate was the tipping point to disaster but pointed out evacuations were the responsibility of local authorities, not FEMA. I guess you want me to be this super hero that is going to step in there and suddenly take everybody out of New Orleans. That kind of look in the lights like a deer tells me that you weren't capable to do the job. In the United States, Rahni Sadler, Ten News. The family of a Brazilian man

shot dead by police after London's Underground bombings has flown to Britain to see where he was killed. They'll also talk to officers investigating the shooting and say they want justice. Caught in a tragedy with international dimensions, a mother grieves. Maria Otoni de Menezes did not expect to make a trip like this. Leaving her country, Brazil, for the first time in her life, she and her family travel to London to find out exactly how and why her son died. TRANSLATION: We're going because we want justice she said. Brazilians should not be treated how my son was treated. They should be treated with respect. Jean Charles de Menezes was shot by police who mistook him for a suicide bomber. Initially, they claimed that he had jumped the barrier

in Stockwell underground station to get away from officers. Later they admitted that wasn't true. The family want to know why the head of Scotland Yard wasn't told this was a mistaken identity until the next day. During their visit, the De Menezes family will meet police and the independent police complaints commission which will publish its report on the shooting next year. Iraqi leaders have welcomed the killing of al-Qa'ida's top commander in Baghdad during a fire fight with coalition forces. The Government says Abu Azzam was caught in an apartment in the capital following a tip-off from a local resident. Azzam was killed when Iraqi and American troops returned fire after entering the flat,

but the slaughter continues on the streets with suicide bombers targeting more recruitment centres.

This attack south of the capital killed 10 would-be police officers.

And Lynndie England, the 22-year-old American soldier convicted over the Abu Ghraib prisoner scandal, faces three years in prison. The same military jury

that yesterday found her guilty on six charges of prisoner abuse has now sentenced her to jail, despite her emotional pleas not to be separated from her baby son. Italians are getting increasingly nervous about becoming the target of terror. Authorities are staging dramatic exercises to reassure people emergency services are prepared. RAPID GUNFIRE Gunfire thunders across Milan's main Linarto Airport. Then in scenes reminiscent of London this summer, police officers arrest four men and march them away. This was the finale of the country's first large scale anti-terrorist exercise. Italy nervous that it'll be the next target. The common procession is that here it is real and the question is just when it will happen. So it's not an 'if', it's a 'when'. The simulated attack involved 2,000 emergency and security staff handling consecutive bombs on the Metro and in one of the city's biggest railway stations. Italy's interior minister says it would be an unforgivable sin to underestimate the threat the country faces. But this constant talk of terror is putting huge strain on Italy's 1 million Muslims. Milan's Islamic school has been closed leaving children having lessons on the pavement. The teachers all scorn on the official explanation - health and safety. Since July, Italy's security forces have stepped up patrols at tourist sites but as in Britain, there is a risk here that a heavy-handed approach will inflame tension. A typhoon has torn a path of destruction through northern Vietnam. Typhoon Damrey battered the coast with winds of more than 100km/h

The 59-year-old billionaire says his wife Melania is pregnant with their first child. The baby is due early next year

but they haven't tried to determine its sex yet. It will be the first child for Melania, who lived with Trump for three years before their wedding last January. Trump has four other children from previous marriages. Fresh debate is raging over the supposed buried treasure of castaway Robinson Crusoe. Treasure hunters claim to have located the mythical treasure trove with a robot on an island off Chile. They say the size of the hoard puts its value at some $10 billion. The 300-year old booty hasn't even been sighted yet but already there are legal fights over who owns it. Legend says islands in the area hold untold wealth, buried by pirates who frequented them during the 18th century. Ahead the schoolboy who's on stand-by to play in the NRL Grand Final.

That's when Ten's Morning News returns. And a farewell in France for Aussie surfer Luke Egan.

This program is captioned live. Australia's biggest oil companies have been called to a meeting with PM John Howard today to discuss the recent jump in petrol prices. Ten's John Hill is there. Natarsha, the meeting has been going on all morning. The PM called in the heads of the four big oil companies - Shell, BP, Exon, Mobil and Caltex. They've been joined by the head of the ACCC, Graham Samuel, and we understand there are two items on the agenda. The first, the outlook for petrol prices and also the Government's concern about increasing use of bio-fuels like ethanol. On petrol prices, the oil companies are maintaining their position that they're only reacting to international market forces brought on by Hurricane Katrina. That pushed prices up over the past few weeks. The only executive to speak on the way into the meeting was the chairman of Shell, Tim Warren. I have great empathy with people who have seen their back pockets out with the price of petrol. But we must remember that that's as a result of international price factors. The Government, like everyone else, is hoping the price of fuel will start to fall

after Hurricane Rita left less damage than expected. And overnight, the world price for oil fell marginally, so that's a good sign. On bio-fuels, ethanol is a fuel alternative that's being used extensively overseas and Mr Howard announced last week he wants greater use of ethanol to help to ease our dependance on oil. So he's likely to be asking the oil companies to make greater use of ethanol blended with petrol. The motoring groups have said that blends of up to 10% ethanol won't damage car engines. The PM's target is for 350 million litres of ethanol

to be in use by 2010. The key issue, of course, is getting the oil companies to agree to have the blends of ethanol available at every service station.

Natarsha. Californian police have released amazing security video In finance news - the Australian share market opened stronger this morning. Julia Lee at Commonwealth Securities and some bad news for people looking for jobs?

For the first time in two years,

employer optimism has fallen. In a

survey of 8,000 employers, 38% said

they planned to add new jobs before

the end of the year while 6% said

they actually planned to get rid of

people. The exception is in

resources with a record 5% planning

to add new jobs. So if you're

looking for new jobs, the best plan

is in resources. I understand

changes ahead for the National

Australia Bank. It has its strategy

briefing today and the company said

the 1,000 job cuts it announced in

May has happened and it's

announced a further 1,000 job cuts

over the next two years. NAB plan

did drop today.

Sport, and as we'll told you earlier, North Queensland will farewell the Cowboys today as they head to Sydney for the NRL Grand Final. Meanwhile at the Wests Tigers a schoolboy may get a last-minute call up to play in the season decider. It's not just the fans soaking up the Wests Tigers' first Grand Final. 18-year-old Shannon McDonnell is on stand-by for injured winger Pat Richards, a prospect that's making it hard to concentrate on his studies. I'm doing my HSC in a couple weeks and have to get down to study soon. But I'm managing. A former schoolboy Tiger, Tim Brasher, juggled final exams with Balmain's 1988 Grand Final appearance. He had half a season of first grade under his belt. McDonnell has played just one game. For him, one first grade game it will be tough. But, like I said, if he can control his nerves and just remember, get in early and make a run, get involved in the game, it soon becomes a normal game of football. The last time the two sides met at the start of the finals the Tigers thrashed the Cowboys. It's still a touchy subject. How much has been said about that 50

that the Tigers put on you a couple of weeks ago? I nearly forgot about that. Not much at all. Three weeks is like an eternity in football. So it is not going to mean much. The Cowboys will arrive in Sydney tonight for final preparations including tomorrow's Grand Final breakfast. Owen Martin, Ten News. Premier League rivals Arsenal and Manchester United both had 2-1 wins this morning

to remain top of their Champions League groups. Manchester fans were given reason to cheer by Ryan Giggs before halftime. The Welshman's free kick taking a deflection on route to the Benfica net. It looked briefly like another nightmare was about to unfold at the theatre of dreams when the Portuguese side equalised after the break. COMMENTATOR: And what Giggs did for Manchester United, Simo does for Benfica. Once again, it was Ruud van Nistelrooy to the rescue with a timely close range winner in the 85th minute. Gold Coast veteran Luke Egan has announced his retirement from the professional surfing tour. Prior to his second round heat at the Quicksilver Pro in France today, the 36-year-old revealed the final event of this year's circuit at Hawaii's Pipeline would be his last. He then paddled out and proved it's clearly a lifestyle decision and not because of form as he dominated in the two metre barrels. I'm really fit and I'm still surfing really well so I want to go do some surfing for myself to just free-surf with my mates. Egan's been a full-time competitor on the world tour for 21 years. The AFL Cup may have left Victoria but the State's now boasting the Melbourne Cup, today officially launching the 2005 Spring Racing Carnival. Amid the fanfare is reporter Mignon Henne. Mignon - as always a little glamour to kick off the season.

Yes, as always. And it's official,

it might be raining here in

Melbourne today, but the 2005

spring racing carnival is amongst

us. And I must say, the atmosphere

down here is electric, celebrating

the race that stops the nation. One

of the highlights today though has

been the unveiling of the

carnival's beautiful ambassador,

Victoria Samber. The daughter of a

former trainer and fiancee of Danny

Nichol, she's made for the role.

The carnival encompasses 82

amazing race meetings over a

spectacular 50 day period. The

jewel in the glorious crown is the

Melbourne Cup. The race that stops

the nation. The big question,

what's hot for fashions on the

field this year? Well, the boys

seem to think that the racing

carnival is about racing. But us

fillies know it is about fashion

and forgive olities. We got a taste

of what to expect and it is fun and

flirty and of course bright colours.

Rule number one at the race track,

it is not a disco. So no evening

wear, just bright colours and

wear, just bright colours and spring fashions. Girls, it's big

hats, the bigger the brim the better
