I mean, London has been a terrorist target for years with the IRA and so on, so you just get on with it. Forensic investigations have revealed each bomb weighed less than 5kg, small enough to fit in a sports bag. The recovery of an unknown number of bodies in the tunnels could take weeks with fears the walls may collapse. With the biggest criminal investigation in British history under way, Intelligence experts say the mastermind could be the same man who planned last year's Madrid train bombings, Mustafa Nasar. too bothered about it.

perhaps indicating the gravity of what has happened, with a Buckingham Palace spokeswoman saying it's highly unusual for the Queen to speak so soon after an event of this magnitude. Leaders of the world's most powerful nations have stood together in a show of unity against terrorism. They've put aside their differences over Iraq and Afghanistan, promising to collectively fight Islamic extremism. The flags were at half-mast, but that was the only visible change terrorists caused at the G8 Summit. She says their brutal crimes will not change the way Britons go about their lives. The Queen arrived by helicopter from Windsor Castle to visit survivors of the blasts in the Royal London Hospital. She thanked staff for their work in the rescue operation. Then, uncharacteristically, addressed the media to issue a defiant message to the terrorists. Those who perpetrate these brutal acts against innocent people should know that they will not change our way of life. The hospital is treating more than 200 victims. 32-year-old Bruce Lait was in a carriage blown apart between Liverpool Street and Aldgate stations. The Queen told survivors she's deeply affected by the blasts. She comforted victims, as the royal family has done after other attacks on London, perhaps most famously the blitz of World War II. Sadly, we in Britain have been all Sadly, we in Britain have been all too familiar with acts of terror. She says the best response is to get back to normal as soon as possible. Atrocities such as these simply reinforce our sense of community. Cheers and applause from hospital staff - a stark contrast to public criticism in recent times when her response to tragedy was said to be too slow. Her comments at the hospital today The al-Qaeda veteran lived in London during the '90s. He remains on the run. The Queen has visited bombing victims in a London hospital, delivering a blunt message to those responsible for the attacks.

The attackers had tried to disrupt the meeting, but the leaders stood defiantly. There is no hope in terrorism nor any future in it worth living alternative to this hatred. Instead, their focus was building hope. African leaders arrived to hear the world's richest nations had promised to double aid to $50 billion a year. If an Irish rock star is allowed to quote Winston Churchill, I wouldn't say this is the end of extreme poverty, but it is the beginning of the end. It was music to the ears of rock stars Bono and Sir Bob Geldof, who had organised the Live 8 concert to put pressure on the western world. Africa, and the poor of that continent, have got more out of the last three days than they have ever got in any previous summit. As George Bush returned home, it was the victims of the London attack on his mind. Once again, that great strength of character is coming through. A bell given to New York by the people of London after September 11 today tolled for them. Relieved families in Sydney have made contact with relatives caught up in the London bombings. It's been an anxious two days waiting for confirmation that they're alive and well. Tony Cancellara and Tanya Calabrese were escaping the crippled Underground for another way to work. This was the bus they got on, the doomed No.30. Sitting up top, they survived. I think it's miraculous and we are so grateful that they're here. Both suffered burst eardrums, cuts and concussion. Tony was thrown from the wreckage but they're now out of hospital. They sound great, their usual joking selves. Catherine Kestov was downstairs, underneath the blast that killed 13 passengers. She suffered only scratches and bruises. She thinks that she was probably cushioned by the other people around her. Relief was a phone call. At Sydney Airport, a homecoming hug. Oh yeah, because I hadn't slept all night when I heard about it. It's horrible, awful, It's horrible, awful, with both of them there, you know. A chance to reflect on being so close to disaster. I caught those trains last week four times every day. We normally stay in Russell Square. This time we didn't, but we normally stay in that area and we were there the day before. The bombing has already seen some people cancel their flights to London. Qantas and Singapore Airlines are offering passengers some leeway, allowing them to change travel plans allowing them to change travel plans without being penalised. The Union Jack on the bridge symbolising Australians are with Londoners here and there. They've said they're going back to work on Monday and they're fine. They say, "Yeah, we're off on They say, "Yeah, we're off on Monday, we're back on Monday." Coming up next, some of the day's other stories, including America bracing for a deadly hurricane.

after their light plane disappeared near the Victorian snowfields. The Piper Chieftain aircraft was travelling from Melbourne to Mount Hotham late yesterday when radio contact was cut. 100 police and volunteers are taking part, with the search expected to resume Former Sydney terror suspect Mamdouh Habib has spoken out about the terror attacks in London, saying Britain needs to be accountable for its actions. His comments came as he met the father of Guantanamo Bay detainee David Hicks for the first time. He was held as a terror suspect for three years at Guantanamo Bay. His son is still there, 3.5 years without being charged. at first light.

there's a call for a winding back of Australia's anti-terrorism laws. Clearly, it is in retaliation for invasions in other countries. Australia is involved in invasions in other countries. Mamdouh Habib believes it's exactly why terrorists have struck in the UK. The Britain Government, they do a lot of bad things. They send the troops, they advertise themselves, they do crime against the world. A cyclone bearing down on the United States has killed 30 people in the Caribbean. Hurricane Dennis is a Category 4 storm, with wind gusts up to 240km/hr. It has cut a destructive path through Cuba and Haiti and is now headed for the Florida coast, where there's a state of emergency. Residents in the Florida Keys are being told to evacuate their homes. And a winter blast has hit our State, though not quite as ferocious. Even so, blizzards have caused havoc in the Snowy Mountains. I want to introduce Mr Terry Hicks. Before today, Mamdouh Habib and Terry Hicks had never met. I'm very happy to see you and I hope you see your son soon. David Hicks did speak to Mamdouh Habib on one occasion. They were in adjoining cells. Hicks wrongly believed he was going home. I believe David Hicks, he's been tricked, the way he tell me. Three and a half years of what they go through over there, you are going to break and I think David is getting to that point. They had a 15-minute conversation on the phone a fortnight ago, but as legal argument continues, Terry Hicks says his son may spend a further two years at Guantanamo. And despite the bombings in London, A blackout at Jindabyne brought the town to a standstill. But it was all good news for skiers, Thredbo and Perisher Blue celebrating the first major snowfalls of the year. More than 60cm has fallen and there's more on the way.

SONG: # Bunnings Warehouse. # Lowest prices are just the beginning. It's delish! A brawl sparked by Dragons Captain Trent Barrett was the turning point in his side's 26-point demolition by Parramatta last night. At half time, the Rabittohs are leading the Sharks at Aussie Stadium. The Eels-Dragons score line looked like one-way traffic in the end, but the floodgates only opened after the Barrett fight. Midway through the second half, Trent Barrett was adamant he'd been elbowed by Parramatta's PJ Marsh. COMMENTATOR: Trent Barrett got up, had a look at the man who came through and threw a punch. That started it. I probably reacted when I shouldn't have. In the end, it cost us. A little bit of ill-discipline from myself, I suppose. I thought I hit him in the chest, but he might have thought it went a bit high. Marsh's team-mates came to the rescue. Almost everyone joined in, except for Wade McKinnon, who had a clear run to the try line. It probably swung the game our way.

It had been a close, tough contest. Oh, he's just absolutely monstered him! The Dragons were ahead 10-0 when Dean Widders set up two Ben Smith tries to level the score. Look at that flick! Around the corner, finds the mark! Picks up Widders, Widders throws the dummy. He's still got support and Parramatta with Ben Smith scoring try number two. In the second half, Parramatta were in a league of their own. Hindmarsh robotic, that's an understatement! The Eels put on five more tries to bury the Dragons, Smith the hat-trick hero. Ben Smith, Ben who? Despite the loss, Trent Barrett still got a compliment in the press conference. Trent, you're a freak. Beg your pardon? But it was only a Dragons fan who had slipped past security. I thought I was getting a rap off a journo then (laughs). Wallabies captain George Gregan has rejoined the team after attending a family funeral and is ready to lead his side against South Africa here at Telstra Stadium tonight. Despite a history of vicious contests and a week of Springbok baiting, coach Eddie Jones expects no malice. With their skipper back, the Wallabies seemed relaxed, but the smiles will vanish in a little over an hour when South Africa's monster pack rumbles on to Telstra Stadium. Still, the big men won't necessarily dictate this game. Could get a bit of rain. If that's the case it'll be very much a set-piece contest. If it stays fine then I think there'll be a bit of ball movement. Under Jake White the spiteful Springboks have become a thing of the past, at least, that's what Eddie Jones is counting on. South Africa-Oz Tests are always tough affairs. but both sides play the game pretty fairly, so I'm sure there won't be any incidents off the ball. In Auckland, the final match in the Lions' disappointing tour but first a minute's silence... Thoughts of us all are with the people of London. The Kiwis were without two of their best - McCaw and Carter and after seven minutes, they had no skipper either. Umaga in the bin for 10 - they trailed 6-0. The response was typically ruthless, two tries in three minutes - the All Blacks in front and in control. Penalties kept the Lions in touch but Umaga atoned for his earlier indiscretion with a crucial try right on half-time. And the latest from that match at Eden Park - it's half-time, with the All Blacks leading the Lions 24-12. A tough month ahead for the Sydney Swans. Tonight they face Geelong at the SCG, the first of four games against the AFL's top four teams. Despite heightened security fears in London, Sunday's one-day game between England and Australia will go ahead at Lord's. Meanwhile, Shane Warne has warmed up for the Ashes with a gritty captain's knock for his county side. In his first game since his marriage break-up, Warne arrived at the crease with Hampshire in trouble at 6/189. But 11 fours and three sixes, including this one to bring up his half-century, saw Warne remain unbeaten on 93 with Hampshire 8/331 when bad light stopped play. Warne will join the rest of the Ashes squad next week. The first Test starts on 21 July. Australia's Robbie McEwen has won stage seven of the Tour de France. McEwen, on the left of screen, burst through the pack to hold off sprint rival Tom Boonen for his second-stage victory. But with the Tour now heading to the mountains, McEwen knows the hard work has only just begun. This is the last sprinter's chance for a little most probably, so it's nice to end the first week on this note. I'm really happy. There was the usual wreckage among the chasing pack with several riders coming unstuck. No such dramas for Lance Armstrong, who retains the leader's yellow jersey. And that'll almost do it from here. Don't forget Sportsworld from 9.00 tomorrow morning. Of course, the rugby here tonight live from 7.30, the Wallabies and South Africa. See you tomorrow. We're expecting a real taste of winter tomorrow. I'll have Sydney's weather outlook next in Seven News. Phil? Yes. Or next week. Aren't we busy too? And who's the customer here? (Sarcastically) Great bank... DOORBELL RINGS Nice to meet you. Hi. (Speaks French) Statesman Internationale. Imbecile. We've had a fine and mostly sunny day across Sydney, but stand by for some of that Snowy Mountain cold snap to come our way. Temperatures reached a pretty mild 19 degrees across the city and western suburbs. Right now, it's cloudy and 15. Around the country tomorrow - A strong wind warning is in force for the Illawarra and south coast. And looking ahead, it's going to be a wet week - bad for the school holidays, but exactly what Sydney's thirsty dams need. Tomorrow, Chris Reason will present Weekend Sunrise from London, bringing you the latest on the terrorist attacks. That's from 8am. And that's Seven News to now. I'll be back with updates later and see you again tomorrow. I'm Anne Sanders. Goodnight. Captioned by Seven Network Email -
