An apology today from two of Australia's most high-profile asylum seekers. The Bakhtiyari boys have turned on their supporters, claiming they were used by opponents of Australia's refugee system. Amadar and Montazar Bakhtiyari want a second chance.

Deported to Pakistan with their parents nine months ago, the boys say Australia is a wonderful country. It's just some of the locals they are not so happy with. The lawyers didn't really help our family at all in the end. If they wanted to help us, why are they not talking to us today?

These dramatic pictures shot the Bakhtiyari boys into the limelight. After escaping from the Woomera detention centre,

refugee advocates encouraged them to seek asylum at the British Consulate in Melbourne. The plan was made. We were taken there. We were used. The boys claim they still feel like outcasts and want to return to study here or in another English-speaking country. The Australian Government is still in the same mind that we're bad. But I would love to be given another opportunity.

Those who had once stood by the boys say their accusations are unfair. Democrats Senator Andrew Bartlett was one of those who had once rallied to the Bakhtiyari family's cause. I don't agree with all of the actions some of the advocates took on their behalf but I think their motivation was correct. The Bakhtiyari boys insist they would return to Afghanistan once their education is completed, but the Government remains concerned they will again seek to stay,

reopening the whole sorry saga. Fenn Kemp, Ten News. A heatwave has firefighters in Queensland's Southeast braced for an outbreak of bushfires. Emergency crews controlled a blaze on Brisbane's western outskirts overnight. A rural fireman was taken to hospital suffering smoke inhalation. The risk of more fires is very high, thanks to a combination of high temperatures, low humidity, high winds and drought. This fire this evening has been a good wake-up call for the fire service. We've put into place some long-held practices and it's worked extremely well. This morning, a haze of smoke covers Brisbane as temperatures head for 35 degrees plus. And it's expected they'll be even higher at the weekend. Tom Cruise and fiancee Katie Holmes are to be parents. Less than six months after their first date, the 27-year-old actress is pregnant. The couple and their families are said to be "very excited". 43-year-old Cruise already has

two adopted children with ex-wife Nicole Kidman. He and Holmes are planning to marry, but no date has been set. Princess Diana threatens to overshadow Charles and Camilla's first overseas trip together -

that story when Ten's morning news returns. And actress Lindsay Lohan hospitalised after this crash - what the starlet says forced her to lose control.

Several Central American countries are reeling in the aftermath of Hurricane Stan, which is now a tropical storm but still dumping torrential rain. That's sending raging rivers of mud and debris surging through villages across four nations, tearing down flimsy shacks, burying some homes under landslides and washing out bridges. Rescue teams have been left helpless

as they try to reach tens of thousands of survivors struggling to stay alive in the open. At least 150 are known to have died.

Prince Charles and Camilla will visit America on their first official overseas trip as husband and wife. It's part of a British campaign to attract tourists but is expected to be overshadowed by American memories of Princess Diana. The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall are to make their first joint official foreign visit to the US

at the beginning of November. The US was, of course, a country where Diana, Princess of Wales was extremely popular. This was a visit she and Prince Charles made to the White House in November 1985. By all accounts, Diana dazzled all those who met her. The inevitable question then, how will America react to Camilla? She's going to go to her grave being compared to Diana. And Diana was a fabulous, glamorous, wonderful woman.

But she's gone. So now the future is Prince Charles and his new wife, who may be Queen one day. And everybody is going to look to see what kind of person she is. Officially, the couple are greatly looking forward to the US visit. It will, though, be an important test for them.

A spectacular end to a high-speed chase in America. Police video shows the moment the suspect's luck ran out. His out-of-control van ploughing into a parked police car. The driver had been trying to outrun police for more than half an hour. He suffered critical injuries and remains in intensive care. The police officer was able to leap clear. Hollywood starlet Lindsay Lohan has escaped with minor injuries

after her sports car slammed into a van in West Hollywood. Police say Lohan and her female passenger were trying to elude a group of photographers when they crashed. It's believed the driver of the van turned in front of her. This car was just flying, it was speeding and then in a split second she just like, slammed on those brakes and she really skidded for a while and she hit the red van.

Witnesses say the 19-year-old actor and her passenger fled into a nearby shop to avoid the cameramen, and left after speaking with police. Nobody was badly hurt. Now to the story of a python whose eyes were bigger than its belly. The 4m snake literally ate itself to death. At one end of this photo is what remains of the python. At the other is the tail and hind legs of the 1.8m alligator it attempted to eat for lunch. It seems in the battle for supremacy in the Florida Everglades, the Burmese python may just be winning. Ahead - the roar of the V8s at Bathurst as practice gets under way. Plus the schoolgirl sports star who's become an instant millionaire. And how the Aussie cricketers regained that winning feeling.

Openers Simon Katich and Adam Gilchrist helped set up a big total, with the World XI never seriously in the hunt in their run chase. It's been a long month for the Aussies and last night's demolition of the world's best couldn't have been sweeter for their under siege skipper.

We've all worn a bit and copped a bit since we've been back about the way the team performed in England, which some was fair and some was a little bit unfair, I thought. But this is the first chance we've had

to get back out and show everybody, all the cricket-loving public of the world, really, just how good a cricket team we are. While the batting had improved, the fielding hadn't. Luckily for Watson, Sehwag didn't make him pay. COMMENTATOR: Brilliant. McGrath has done it. McGrath's opening spell was brilliant. The miserly champion trapping Kallis. Big shout, very big one. He's got him! It should've been followed by Sangakkara. Katich letting another one slip. Nathan Bracken returned to the big time with the prized scalp of Brian Lara. Sangakkara the only member of the top six to make double figures, before falling to a juggled catch from Ponting. Removing Shaun Pollock with a direct hit was only part of Watson's big night out. The all-rounder's third wicket removing any chance of victory. The World XI fell 93 short. The series credibility now depends on an improved showing in games two and three.

The guys are hurting. There's no doubt about that. I think we have to try to see it as a challenge. We're going to have to play like one hell of a team if we're going to come back from 1-0 down. Earlier, Gilchrist and Katich returned to form as openers setting up the Australian total of 255. Crash! Magnificent cover drive.

Rob Waters, Ten News.

Opening practice has begun at Bathurst ahead of Sunday's V8 Supercar showpiece event - the Super Cheap Auto 1000. Ten's Trent Higgs joins us from pit lane at Mount Panorama. Trent, who's the early pace setter?

That's right, no matter how many

times you come up to this place,

nothing beats the feeling of the

cars rolling around the track for the

cars rolling around the track for the first time. As you can hear

behind me, that's exactly what

happened. The V8 supercars are out

there. It's a two-hour long session

and the Holden racing team's Todd

Kelly is fasest . The V8 1,000 is

the show piece of the supercar

racing. There's no driver with

more pressure than defending

more pressure than defending champion and four time race winner,

Greg Murphy. He's won the last two

races here but he has a new partner

and new team. Murphy is going to be

chasing some serious history this

weekend. He's hoping to become the

first driver since 1984 to win

three straight races. He's

confident but ignoring the hype,

despite the attention, he's not

paying much attention to the history books and all

paying much attention to the history books and all the records.

I'm not thinking about it. But if

you happen to do it, well then, it

would be unbelievable. You

would be unbelievable. You put

yourself into good company and a

very small group if you can manage

to win five or do something like

that. All those things are

wonderful, absolutely wonderful.

But it means nothing until you can actually achieve it. Here's But it means nothing until you can actually achieve it. Here's another

notable piece of history. Holden

has won the last six straight races

here and Ford will be trying to

more V8 supercar practice here

tomorrow and then practice live

here on Network Ten tomorrow night.

And don't forget that the race is

live here on Network Ten all day on Sunday.

AFL trade week has taken a turn for the better for Carlton, with forward Lance Whitnall rejecting a lucrative offer from Melbourne to remain with the Blues. The 26-year-old has agreed to a new 2-year contract, meaning fellow forward Brendan Fevola could be offloaded before tomorrow's 2pm deadline to make room in the salary cap. Richmond remains the favourite to secure Fevola, while Essendon has made no secret of its intention to secure midfielder Scott Camporeale. The Bombers have already signed Collingwood's Richard Cole in exchange for draft pick number 23.

Hawaii's teenage golf star Michelle Wie has hit the jackpot, turning pro days before her 16th birthday, picking up an instant $13 million in endorsements. Wie, who's already contested both men's and women's pro events as an amateur since she was 13, is likely to make much more in prize money. The first time I grabbed a golf club I knew that I would do it for the rest of the my life and I loved it.

Some 12 years later, I'm finally turning pro and I'm so excited. Wie still aims to complete her education right through to college and has donated $500,000 to the Hurricane Katrina appeal. Next in Ten News - a look at the weather around the nation.
