A man has been stabbed to death and two others are in hospital after a brawl in Sydney's south-west.

Concerned residents called police to this address in Airds just before 7:00 last night claiming a fight had broken out between three men. When officers arrived, all were suffering serious injuries. They were rushed to nearby hospitals. One of the men died on arrival. And a 32-year-old man has been charged over the stabbing murder of an Israeli man in Sydney.

Police say the suspect, who's also Israeli, turned himself in to police last night. The 36-year-old died after he was stabbed outside this shop in Bondi. Passers-by tried to help the man who lay bleeding on the foot path. He later died in hospital. The suspect will face court later today. 5-time world motorcycle champion Mick Doohan has been charged over a brawl in Darwin. The Gold Coaster allegedly attacked a bouncer as he was leaving the Northern Territory nightclub at the weekend. Police have charged Doohan over the head-butt. He'll face court next week. More than 200 people have been killed and up to 10,000 forced to flee by flash floods in Ethiopia's second largest city.

Heavy rains in and around the city sent swollen rivers over their banks and into the town, sweeping away houses, vehicles and livestock. Roads were washed out leaving residents stranded. Officials say the toll was high because the sudden flood came during the night. A man caught up in the ill-fated Elephant Man drug tests says he'd rather be dead after learning now he has cancer. David Oakley is in the preliminary stages of lymph cancer but has been warned by doctors he faces other diseases, including arthritis. The news comes just five months after the 35-year-old and others were left fighting for their lives after a botched German drug company test in London. He'd taken part in the TeGenero trial to raise money for his wedding. After years of effort, mummies of some ancient pharoahs have gone on display in Cairo. A new, $350 million antiquities hall has been added to the Egyptian Museum to house a unique collection from the warrior pharoahs.

In finance news - the Australian share market is stronger. To sport - and Fremantle's premiership odds have been slashed

on the back of last night's impressive 53-point win over Hawthorn. The Dockers equalled the club's greatest winning streak,

with their fifth victory in a row. It's a little slice of Docker history - a fifth straight win. Now finals are not only a reality but this team has set some lofty September expectations.

Slipping over, bounces back. Oh, don't tell me! What a goal that is! We set out from the start of the season that we're looking to make the finals and win a final.

Once again, the serial wrestling Freo boys will be up for some more melee fines.

In other results, Geelong's slim finals hopes remain alive. to Steve Johnson, On the back of four goals

the Cats won for the first time ever at the Gabba. To win six out of eight games at this end of the season is a pretty good achievement, so we go on and play St Kilda and, as the gentlemen said here before, that's another cutthroat game we need to win. If we don't win we probably won't make it. But for the second week in a row Jimmy Bartel is under scrutiny for a crude bump. And bound for the NFL, Sav Rocca booted four majors in the Roos' 19-point win over Port Adelaide. Tim Hodges, Ten News. In rugby league - Brisbane is still third on the ladder despite a worrying fourth consecutive loss. But the Broncos still won't admit they're in a slump.

Four straight defeats, six losses from their last eight matches - not pretty stats. But the Broncos still won't hear anything of that 'S' word. Your definition of a slump and mine are different. So I'm not going to add any more to it. The Broncos concede they're lacking confidence but they're not making any other excuses. We haven't got a big injury toll and I know the players aren't - I don't think they're tired anyway, I think they're pretty fresh. The Raiders putting on six tries against Brisbane to move into the top eight and they're planning to stay there. I've had a gutful of the ficklety and these guys deserve more support. Andrew Johns inspired Newcastle to a 32-18 win over the Roosters and fourth place on the ladder. We're building momentum and that's what we want to do.

And South Sydney's becoming a late-season nuisance, putting a big dent in Penrith's finals hopes. Winger Nathan Merritt scoring a hat-trick for the Bunnies

and going four clear of the at the top of the season try-scoring list. We didn't play with a good amount of enthusiasm and drive and whatever that you should be showing at this time of the year if you want to be in the hunt. Leanne West, Ten News. The top two contenders for the Formula 1 crown failed to finish

on a wet and wild day at the Hungarian Grand Prix. Fernando Alonso unable to extend his lead in the driver's championship, while Michael Schumacher collected a solitary point. Once again, Australian Mark Webber failed to finish. Mark Webber's horror year continues. The tyres on his Williams unable to handle the slippery conditions forcing 9th early exit in 13 starts. He wasn't alone though, team-mate Nico Rosberg let down by an electrical fault. COMMENTATOR: Yet another double retirement for the Williams team. The rain causing all sorts of problems out on the track.

No let-up when the weather cleared either. Kimi Raikonnen making a spectacular exit. He just runs smash into the back of Antonio Liuzzi. The debris quickly cleared, before Fernando Alonso's Renault began shedding shrapnel. The world champion out and in danger of losing vital championship points to a surging Michael Schumacher. Realising his opportunity, the German began an aggressive charge for a fourth straight victory. He doesn't make it easy. I'm not sure about that at all. Trying to coax his Ferrari home without changing tyres let Schumacher down with just three laps remaining. That left Jenson Button a clear ride to his breakthrough victory, generating hysteria in the all-British commentary booth. He's done it! Get in there! Anthony Goodridge, Ten News. Australia's Troy Bayliss has stretched his lead in the Superbikes World Championship with yet another victory overnight, this time at the European GP. Bayliss with the maximum points in the first race of the day, leading home Britain's James Toseland with Japanese rider Noriyuki Haga third. The Aussie locked in a gripping battle with Haga in race two, he finished second with another Aussie, Andrew Pitt, third. Another chapter in the amazing career of Tiger Woods - the world's top golfer dominated the field at the Buick Open, becoming the youngest player to reach 50 victories on the US Tour. Former US Open champ Jim Furyk with a late charge, 8 under par for the final round to finish three shots off the pace. Woods, though, unflappable on his victory march in front of a boisterous crowd. COMMENTATOR: That was rather untimely. The world number one home in a stunning 24 under par. A lucky underwater escape for a driver and colleague in the Powerboats British Grand Prix. The 'King of Shaves 50' boat was running second in the race when it rolled at high speed, leaving its passengers to make a hasty escape from the cockpit. Chris Parsonage and James Sheppard managed to free themselves from the wreckage and find fresh air. After a short delay, the race continued without these two rather soggy competitors. And a fiery end to a hydroplane race in Seattle - the driver throwing open the cockpit hatch and escaping as flames engulfed the machine. After seemingly not knowing what to do, he eventually swam away from the burning wreck. He told rescue crews the hydroplane blew a turbine engine as he was heading into the final turn during a qualifying heat. Incredibly, once ashore, he walked away with just a slight limp. I'll be back shortly with a look at the weather around the nation. Our scientific institutes around the world have discovered the power of new Head & Shoulders. Head & Shoulders removes in just one.
