next to one of Sydney's busiest highways. The blaze pouring thick smoke into the sky. The highway and surrounding roads were closed This decision as I suggest is a more appropriate way because it applies to a large number of other defence force people who are serving in similar operations. The medal will recognise humanitarian work done by our troops, not only on Nias but also in Aceh, and on any other future relief operations. The award was technically only available to people operating in a hostile environment. The legal advice we had was the work being done in Aceh and in Nias in the wake of the tsunami and the earthquake was not legally regarded as hazardous. The Prime Minister also expects to announce soon the awarding of the Australian Defence Medal to the victims of the Sea King tragedy. Murray McCloskey, Ten News.

An Australian arrested in the US as a suspected suicide bomber will be deported back to Sydney. The man sparked a major security scare in Washington DC when he demanded to speak to the President. Wen Hao Zhou of Sydney wasn't the suicide bomber police feared he was but the 32-year-old still remains behind bars in the US. Zhou was crash tackled and arrested after sparking a security scare outside the Capitol Building with two suitcases suspected of hiding bombs. Then he said if we wanted to know what was inside the bag go ahead and open it. So it was kind of a threatening situation. In the end, the bags were destroyed. But no explosives were found. With no crime committed, Zhou wasn't charged. We don't have any concerns about how they handled that. They obviously had concerns and a job to do and they did their job. Zhou, who is believed to have dual Australian and Chinese passports only arrived in the US five days ago. Australian Consulate officials spent half an hour with him this morning. You simply don't come to the You simply do not come to the US and conduct yourself in this way and expect to stay here.

US officials are working to get him out of the country. We fully intend to remove him as expeditiously as possible. It's not clear how soon that will happen. Another twist in the Schapelle Corby drug case a death threat sent to the Indonesian Consulate in Perth. The letter arrived several days ago, threatening to shoot staff if Miss Corby was not immediately released from jail in Bali. It's believed the letter also contained two bullets.

Speculation mounts on when the US will pull out, as Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld made a surprise visit to Iraq. Back in Baghdad, Donald Rumsfeld flew in before dawn. The main architect of the war that brought US troops here is now under pressure to bring them home. APPLAUSE A debate on the edge of the capital, there were medals for men who had been injured on the front line. The US military says attacks on its soldiers have declined since January's elections here, but large numbers of American troops will only be pulled out when the Iraqi security forces are ready to take their place. These are the most elite of the new Iraqi troops and many are soldiers that served under Saddam Hussein. They've been brought back to help fight the insurgents because they're experienced at war but the Americans are now worried they may be purged when a new government takes power. After meeting the outgoing prime minister, Ayad Allawi, Donald Rumsfeld voiced his concerns about the political transition here. It would be most unfortunate if these changes caused a delay or a disruption in the progress that we've seen because our goal, and the goal of the Coalition forces, is to pass off the responsibility for security to the Iraqi security forces. China has seen some of its biggest protests since Tiananmen Square in 1989. This time the people's anger is directed at Japan over a new school book which glosses over its World War II atrocities. This spring, the outpouring of emotion isn't against the Communist Party. PEOPLE YELL These stones are being thrown at the Japanese. PEOPLE YELL In the city of Guangzhou, Japanese businesses have been attacked... ..even Japanese cars. The spark for all of this - the publication of a new Japanese school textbook. PEOPLE YELL In India today, China's Prime Minister added his voice to the growing row over Japan's history teaching. "The core issue is that Japan needs to face up squarely to its history," he said. "The war of aggression waged by Japan inflicted huge suffering and hardship "on the people of China." (All chant) But the crux of this argument isn't history textbooks. It's Japan's push to get a permanent seat on the UN Security Council. From his flat in Beijing, this man is organising a campaign to stop Japan. So far, he's got over 10 million signatures. "The United Nations was set up "to stop countries like Japan from invading others," he says. "How can you allow Japan to sit on the Security Council? "That's like letting a criminal join the police." A small plane carrying the New Zealand Prime Minister has made a dramatic emergency landing. A door burst open midair during the flight and two police officers travelling with Helen Clark had to hold it closed. With my head in papers, all of a sudden there seems to be a lot of noise and the plane plunging and even with your belt on you go up and my arm crashed down on a piece of metal and the window sill and I could feel that was a bit painful but then I noticed there was a struggle going on with the door. It was quite dramatic. The two policemen with me were struggling to hold onto the door. struggling to hold onto the door. That was quite dramatic. The latest research has revealed food from cloned animals is safe to eat. The find could help boost food production, especially in developing countries. Welcome to the farmyard of the

future. This is the animal science centre at the university of Connecticut and the cattle here have all been Connecticut and the cattle here have all been cloned. They're genetic copies of animals picked for the quality of their meat or milk and could soon end up on a menu like you. The researchers are comparing cleaned animals with conventional ones and their conclusion? The product from cloned animals, including meat and milk , animals, including meat and milk , are no different to the milk and meat from animals by natural reproduction. Ever since the cloning of Dolly the sheep, there have been concerns about where science is heading. These genetically modified salmon are five times the size of normal. This pig was fed five times the size of normal. This pig was fed so much growth hormone it couldn't carry its own weight. Cloning often goes wrong. They are born deformed and die in pain and distress. Researchers say cloning will produce better food but will anyone buy it? Pop princess Britney Spears has announced she's pregnant. The 23-year-old broke the news to fans on her official website. The short message says she is expecting her first child, with her husband, dancer Kevin Federline, and all is well, despite reports she was in hospital over the weekend. The couple married last September. The child will be a first for Britney but the third for her husband.
