Police have tonight charged a man with making telephone death threats against the NSW Premier Bob Carr. He's been refused bail and will appear in court tomorrow.

gives a 60% chance the board will announce a rate hike tomorrow. Australian households are deeper in debt than they've ever been before and we know that more and more of household income is going towards servicing that debt. A 0.25% rise on a $270,000 loan would see monthly repayments jump to just over $2,000. That's an $87-a-month rise since February. The Prime Minister hopes the Reserve will take into account the added burden of record petrol prices on households. Mr Howard is also strongly of the view the economy is already slowing. Business, small and large, is urging the bank to hold off. We think it would be damaging to the economy if they were to proceed with another interest rate rise so soon. The Reserve Bank has a habit of raising rates in pairs. That's why many economists expect another hike tomorrow. That, and fears inflation still needs a tighter rein. The Government's concerns also political - the latest Newspoll has its support dropping five points to 49%, while Labor's rising five to 51%. There's no doubt that the upward pressure on interest rate cause by the Howard Government policy is a factor in the polls. John Howard says rates are still at an extremely low level. Paul Bongiorno, Ten News. How Britain's hastily re-scheduled royal wedding will now be on the anniversary of one of the saddest days in the Queen's life. We're following that story in Ten's Late News. Also tonight - why this man is making no secret of his hatred for police. concerning the safety of the Premier at NSW State Parliament House.

About 40 indigenous residents screamed at police as they read the arrest warrant issued for Kevin Buzzacott after he failed to turn up at his Supreme Court trial. Get your hands off him! Police eventually took him, in a caged vehicle, to the police watch-house, where he'll spend the night. Buzzacott is on trial for taking a coat of arms from Old Parliament House three years ago. The fatal shooting of a man during a police raid has sparked threats of revenge attacks against police. One angry relative has vowed to take two lives for the one his family lost. Grief turned to fury as family of the dead man arrived at the shooting scene. (Man yells) An uncle rushing inside a police cordon, then clashing with officers. He was overpowered and wrestled to the ground, handcuffed until he'd calmed down. Other relatives also hitting out as emotions boiled over. No good to kill, no good to shoot! Inside the house a 29-year-old man lay dead. He'd been shot by police during an early morning raid. He was a real good bloke, good-hearted, kind-hearted. Never hurt anyone. The police shot him in his neck. The shooting occurred as Special Operations Group officers moved in. Police won't say if the dead man had been armed but an officer was injured. An incident occurred upstairs involving one of the occupants of the house. As a result of that incident a firearm was discharged by a member of the SOG and a suspect has been fatally wounded. Family of the dead man who'd been in the house were arrested and taken for questioning. Police had swooped on several homes simultaneously. The culmination of a 6-month investigation by the Organised Crime Squad into serious crimes, including drug production and an attempted shooting murder. More arrests at a second house on the same road. It too had been raided. Detectives say the dead man was a suspect. His killing prompting threats of revenge attacks against police. I'm gonna drink their (Bleep) blood, the (Bleep) dogs! The threats were taken seriously, screens erected around the shooting scene, to obscure the view of anyone attempting a drive-by shooting. Guards in bullet-proof vests outside the nearby Altona North police station. Jeremy Pudney, Ten News. And there's been a development in that story tonight - the father and brother of the man shot dead have been charged with attempted murder and will appear in court in the morning. Yet another wedding hiccup for Charles and Camilla - the couple delaying their nuptials because they clashed with the Pope's funeral. Instead of attending his wedding this Friday, Prince Charles will now be attending a funeral. As the Prince and Camilla Parker Bowles attended a memorial service for Pope John Paul II at Westminster Cathedral, Clarence House released a statement announcing the pair's wedding would be postponed a day. I particularly welcome His Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales, representing Her Majesty, the Queen. The nuptials were to have taken place this Friday, but that is now the day the Pope will be laid to rest and the statement said the postponement was "absolutely the right thing to do." The Prince will now leave his fiancee on the eve of their wedding to fly to Rome to attend the Pope's funeral, returning in time to make it up to Windsor for a midday Saturday ceremony GMT. Three other weddings due to go ahead that afternoon in the Windsor Guild Hall won't be affected. But it just wouldn't be Charles and Camilla if there weren't more dramas. The change now means the wedding will be held on the third anniversary of the funeral of the Queen Mum - the Queen finding herself sitting in the same pew for the marriage blessing as she did for her mother's funeral. Newspapers reporting a royal source says the monarch is exasperated and feels the wedding is jinxed. However the change does mean many high-profile guests will now be able to make it to both services - including British Prime Minister Tony Blair and our own Governor-General Michael Jeffrey. Good news too for souvenir sellers - mugs and tea towels bearing the April 8 wedding date ankle injury. sidelined for two months with an rugby league's hottest property And in 'Sports Tonight' - more subdued than usual.

He's lost his licence for nine months for drink driving. It wasn't hard to spot the only rock star in Condobolin Local Court this morning as the town's hero Shannon Noll appeared on a drink-driving charge. It was just the end (Sings) # Let's drive # Yeah, oh, well, I got a bit of walking to do so I won't be driving again for a while, mate but definitely never gonna contemplate doing it again, that's for sure. Locals around here say nearly everyone in Condobolin drives under the influence at some stage of their lives because there's no public transport and only two taxis in the whole town. It's very difficult for people who are living out of town to get to and from hotels.
