The road between us and Whyalla is cut and there's actually a 4-wheel drive sitting in the middle of the road with water up to the windows. Emily Rice, Ten News. Sydney's legionnaire's disease outbreak has claimed another two victims. Six people have now contracted the deadly bacteria after celebrating New Year's Eve at Circular Quay, water cooling tower tests yet to identify the source. Those tests won't be back until early next week but as I understand it from the council there's been no obvious smoking gun in this case. Another man from southwestern Sydney is fighting for his life in hospital,

but his case is not believed to be related. There's a growing chorus of condemnation across the globe after China used a missile to destroy a satellite in space. The test fuelling fresh concerns of a Cold War-style arms race. It's being seen as

the most dramatic military move in space in a generation, an escalation of China's regular space program causing worldwide alarm. A week ago, a medium-range ballistic missile, launched from south-western China, intercepted and destroyed an old weather satellite orbiting the Earth. America and Russia did this in the '80s but stopped because of the debris it caused. What China has done is a very aggressive move. We all know and China knows that we know that they have this capability, but it's a whole different thing to actually go ahead and do it. Australian officials summoned China's ambassador, seeking an explanation, but are waiting for a response. We are concerned about the militarisation of outer space on the one hand, and secondly we are concerned about the impact that debris from destroyed satellites could have on other satellites. This is a point echoed by a growing number of nations. We don't want to see a situation

where there is any militarisation of space. We certainly don't want to see a situation with even tests of this kind

that produce extensive amounts of space debris. China is notoriously reluctant to discuss its expanding military might... (Speaks Mandarin) ..but a foreign ministry official did emerge today, insisting they oppose the use of weapons in space. Eddy Meyer, Ten News. Next - on the run.
