It's such a beautiful day and they're just sitting in this quadrangle and can't go anywhere - it's awful. Crowds could be banned from some NSW soccer matches after more violence between rival fans. It's the second time in two months

Serb and Croatian supporters have clashed, with flares and firecrackers hurled at police. The last bus of Croat fans was pulling out of the stadium

when, all of a sudden, over the hill came charging scores of their Serbian rivals. (All chant) Serbia! Serbia! Get in line, form a line. The busload of Sydney United supporters took off, chased by the frenzied Bonnyrigg White Eagles fans. Mounted police came under attack. Riot-trained officers jumped in to help out.

Please, please, please get off me. Don't move your head. Lean across that bonnet, don't move. Stadium security seemed more concerned about the public fallout as police made six arrests. C'mon guys, see you later. The disturbance spread to nearby streets. (All chant) Serbia! Serbia! The Serb fans continuing to taunt police during a tense stand-off.

Two ranks across here. Go, make it happen. OSG, form up, two ranks, move, move. The crowd eventually calling it a night. A wooden plank embedded with nails was retrieved from the bus, which was trashed, windows and side panels kicked in. Despite the best intentions, it's clear the neutral venue approach hasn't worked with these two sides. Now there's a call to ban the clubs if they can't control their fans. Kick 'em out, no excuses. Don't give me name changes, don't stop one or two individuals going into the ground. Police want to meet club and league officials to discuss radical action. Certainly, I'll be discussing with the authorities a possibility of conducting future matches without spectators.

Police are examining CCTV footage in a bid to reel in more of the troublemakers. Shaun Fewings, Ten News. Defence Minister Robert Hill has visited our troops in southern Iraq, just weeks before hundreds more are due to arrive. He's reassured local leaders Australia wants to help, not hinder the country's rebuilding.

The Defence Minister touched down in southern Iraq, met by an advance party of Australian troops at Camp Smitty. How are you? There, his tour began. First stop - a briefing room tent before more informal chats with the troops. The rest of Australia's 450-strong deployment will arrive within weeks. The Minister given a taste of the dangers they'll face

In a visit designed to smooth the way for our troops, Robert Hill met with the governor of the al-Muthanna province to stress Australia's 12-month involvement in Operation Catalyst I wanted to visit the Governor

to express to him the wishes of my country, to be helpful in the process of building peace and security. Our troops will work alongside Japanese troops on the ground.

They will also help train Iraqi soldiers. But the so-called rebuilding of the country has a long way to go. In the last day, rocket attacks in Fallujah killed at least three civilians including a child. In Baghdad, a car bomb blast killed three more, injured six. Just a day before these attacks there were about 12 others

killing more than 30 and wounding 100. Attacks police say were targeted mostly at security forces. Guards at the Indonesian jail holding accused drug smuggler Schapelle Corby have allegedly been caught selling heroin to inmates. to walk free at their leisure, and an unusually high number of deaths in custody. Undercover police surveillance exposed a Kerobokan prison guard selling heroin to inmates. Police, posing as drug mules, caught the uniformed officer red-handed. It's a black mark that's making headlines in Bali

why Schapelle Corby's supporters want her out. But this is not an average jail. Prisoners regularly walk in and out of here

at their own leisure and there have recently been a high amount of suicides, It's prompted a Red Cross investigation. The other nine Australians behind bars in Indonesia

have had an interrogation-free day, but the ordeal continues to drain them emotionally. It's not known how long their distressed parents can keep up their regular visits. 18-year-old Matthew Norman though, still languishes in his cell

without a visit from his Sydney-based family. Police say he screams for his mother at night. The so-called Mulusty Four who were arrested at a Kuta hotel will be interviewed this week. 21-year-old Andrew Chan, one of the accused ringleaders, faces a lengthy interrogation tomorrow.

And police from both Indonesia and Australia are still hunting the drug lords who allegedly ordered the Australians to strap heroin to their bodies.

In Bali, Martine Griffiths, Ten News. Anti-smoking groups are fuming about a legal loophole, giving children easy access to cheap cigarettes on the Internet. An Australian website is offering tax-free smokes, for just $4.30 a packet. Half price cigarettes, tax free, delivered to your door

and it's all legal. By mailing cartons to customers one at a time, the budding tobacco tycoon avoids attracting stamp duty. A packet of 20 setting back the puffing public just $4.40 each. Anti-smoking groups are fuming. Quit says there are no safeguards preventing the net nicotine business selling to children. We've got to make sure that we're protecting young people by making sure they're not able to access cigarettes so cheaply.

The site makes a mockery of strict rules banning tobacco advertising. The imported cigarettes have no health warnings and are promoted online in a way which is banned in newspapers and on TV. that people would prey on vulnerable, particularly children and try and find loopholes in the law to sell cigarettes. The Victorian Government wants it shut down.

Today media attention forced it to do just that, but not for the reason some might have hoped. The site showing no signs of running out of puff, inundated with orders. Health authorities pleading with Canberra to take action. It's an unregulated way to sell cigarettes and we think selling over the internet should be banned. But until the smoke clears, cigarette smokers appear keen not just to cheat death, Gerard Scholten, Ten News. Renewed calls tonight for tough jail sentences to people torturing pets. Another cat has been left for dead - beaten, tied up and dumped. Sporting the scars of a torrid few days, some Sunday R&R with Dad was just what the vet ordered. It was, it seems, just as therapeutic for Peter Vasilevski. His beloved long-haired moggy Meatball the target of mindless thugs.

Just found in a ditch inside a bag, apparently, not in a very good condition. A life-threatening condition according to his vet.

Meatball suffered a broken leg and had to have a pin inserted during lengthy surgery. He also endured nerve and spinal damage, missing skin and a damaged eye. The spinal injuries potentially could have left him paralysed,

but with treatment over a course of five or seven days he came good. Peter suspects locals stole his cat, bashed and tortured him, before tying him up in a cement bag and leaving him for dead. A passer-by spotted him and took the cat to the local vet. I'm sure if he was there another night, he wouldn't have survived. This is the latest in a string of cat cruelty cases. In Sydney, three teenagers tortured an 8-week-old kitten

at a train station. Little Sheepy sustained horrific injuries but survived. One of her attackers had some charges dropped and could receive only a fine. The RSPCA wants much tougher penalties. The judiciary have got to jail the culprits. I get very angry when I think about what people do to these animals. Despite his ordeal, Meatball is almost purr-fect again.

Mitchell Catlin, Ten News. Still to come in Ten News - a boat blast leaves a little girl with shocking burns. The man who plummeted down an empty lift shaft while trying to help others. And the bride-to-be whose cold feet led to an elaborate abduction hoax.

Our target for the new car is to produce the world's best quality vehicle. WOMAN: People have been really excited about it. There's a general view that it's a huge step in the right direction. I've really been able to influence the colour and trim direction to a future which is more stylish, modern and exciting.

Superior quality, superior strength. Everything has changed. Our new model, like all Mitsubishi vehicles, will come with Australia's first 5-10 warranty. In fact, it will be better built, better backed than any other car built in Australia.
