Brendan Nelson has reportedly backed away from his earlier comments, but there are calls for him to return from his overseas trip

and explain exactly what he meant. The usefulness of oil to the international economy taken in the Middle East

but people who say it was the only criteria are way off the mark. America's top brass maintains that for US soldiers it's simply a war on terror.

That sounds like a bumper sticker, but that's what they believe. In the past two days another six American soldiers have died in Iraq, bringing the US death toll there to almost 3,600. Murray McCloskey, Ten News. Federal police braced for trouble

Also looking on, Syrian embassy staff with video cameras. Health officials are calling for calm after a severe form of the flu led to the deaths of three children in Perth.

The scare has sparked panic with hundreds of parents pouring into emergency rooms and jamming hospital phone lines. Concerned parents rushed to emergency departments after the deaths of three Perth children under the age of five. Sometimes these things are hard to tell whether it's a cold or a flu but it's always right to bring them in to get checked out. Basically what they're saying is if they're critically, acutely ill that's when you should really worry. Health officials say We think it's likely that although all the children had signs of influenza A infection,

as part of the process that's been the cause of the tragic consequences. We've been very busy yesterday after the public announcement. We saw 237 patients yesterday which is an increase of 60% compared to the previous Friday. But the Australian Medical Association has attacked the Health Department for being too slow to inform doctors. Clearly coming out so late on Friday afternoon it's caused significant difficulties. The Health department is urging parents not to panic

but if their child has a fever and a temperature over 38 degrees, a cough and is unresponsive, they should seek medical attention.

Officials say this influenza strain isn't new. The data we've got at the moment indicate that there's a similar strain in circulation at low level throughout Australia and there's been a slight increase in activity in New Zealand. Matt Moran, Ten News. A 15-year-old girl has been killed on her birthday crossing a busy road on the Sunshine Coast. Naarah Austin and her friend, also 15,

But there are fears confusion over the change will cause traffic chaos. Once traffic starts to stop and starts to ask questions then we're going to have huge congestion. The tunnel will be closed overnight as crews make the final changes to the toll stations. With a rental squeeze gripping the nation, more families are being forced into caravan parks. Recent flooding in many parts of Australia adding to the woes of low income earners. The parents of these little girls want nothing more than a house for their daughters but, like thousands of Australians, they're unable to compete in today's tight rental market. Over the past 12 months of looking, there is less and less places to apply for. A single father, Peter Benis has been living with his daughter in a caravan on Melbourne's outskirts for four years. He's applied for dozens of rental homes and it's getting tougher. It has gone up. Too expensive to pay for rent and food - with the price of food and all that, it's just too hard. Charity groups are unanimous in their claim the rental market cupboard is bare. at their lowest they've ever been since records have been kept - they're only at 1.2%. Recent flooding in several areas has also tightened the rental squeeze - with nowhere to go. many tenants forced to vacate

Welfare groups are again calling for urgent funding into public housing. While Labor claims eight interest rate hikes under the Howard Government has pushed affordability out of reach. There is no such thing as a small home loan any more

no such thing as a cheap house so there's such thing as a small interest rate rise. Meanwhile, for some, the great Australian dream will remain just that. We want to move out into a big, big house. Mignon Stewart, Ten News. Seven people ended up in hospital after a teenager's birthday was raided by 30 gatecrashers armed with knives and swords. Police have been criticised to calls for help. for not responding fast enough In a matter of minutes, a celebration became a crime scene. A group of up to 30 people gate-crashed a 16th birthday party armed with swords and knives. Caused mayhem, ran through attacking blokes, stabbing blokes, a couple of blokes got bottled across the head, blokes just running around everywhere, girls screaming, it was just out of control. Seven partygoers suffered serious stab wounds, two teenagers required surgery for injuries to their abdomen and wrist.

Neighbours say the hall, which was hired from the St Albans Saints soccer club, is notorious for hosting rowdy functions. when they have their dos. You don't come outside the gate before they responded. Get down here, there's 30 blokes coming here to crash a party.

I'm happy with the way the response was.

The police investigation will be extensive with more than 100 potential witnesses and more than 50 items collected as evidence from the scene. Racial tension is being considered as a possible trigger for the brawl. Police have interviewed a 16-year-old boy who is believed to be one of the gate crashers.

Cameron Baud, Ten News. It's 60 years since one of the world's most iconic weapons

went into production. Mikhail Kalashnikov - designer of the AK-47 - was honoured at a special ceremony in Moscow today. More than 100 million of the assault rifles have been produced since 1947. Despite the many thousands of people killed by the gun, the 87-year-old inventor says although he did admit that if he had his time over he would have liked to invent something more peaceful,

like the lawnmower. Missiles being tested in North Korea might one day have the potential to hit Australia. That's the warning tonight in a Japanese defence report.

This program is captioned live. A man's been jailed for attacking a TV reporter as the cameras rolled. The reporter was filming an interview about a real estate scam when an angry woman appeared and confronted him. Why do you have to bother me? Then her husband stepped in with a savage onslaught that left the reporter with cracked ribs, bite wounds and cuts to his face. The man has been jailed for a year and ordered to go to anger management classes. His wife has been given 30 days community service. It's the 7th of the 7th of the 7th - and, as you're about to find out, with all those sevens, it's lucky for some. Today's milestone may have passed without notice for many but the 7th of the 7th '07 is considered three times the chance at happiness for some who chose today to exchange vows. And for Oleg and Victoria at least they're hoping it's second time lucky. It's not our first marriage, but I think it will be the last one.

No thinking about the seven year itch -

at registry offices across the country it's been a record day for couples who thought lucky seven wouldn't hurt as a start date for the their new lives. We even had a waiting list for couples that wanted to book today as it's a special day. The combination of the numbers today actually bring loving people unconditionally soft touch, to it being so many couples wanting to get married. Those not exchanging rings were exchanging money.

Might even go and put $77 on number 7. I'm gonna go up and have a go at the roulette table and see how I go. Number 7's not lucky for me so I don't stand a chance, do I? If your numbers haven't aligned today in Chinese culture, at least, preparations are already well under way for the 8th of the 8th 2008. 8 is considered prosperous, but, be cautious - numerology isn't an exact science. No luck - at all. No matter matter what day it is. Josh Murphy, Ten News. A golf club has come up with a novel way to drought-proof their greens. They're using recycled sewage to turn a former dustbowl into a lush fairway. It's Murphy's law - a new drought-proof watering system to combat the 100-year drought has brought the rains. But action was needed to save this social hub. From a community point of view it's one of the focal points for people. The fairway six months ago... We lost four greens. But a new system of pumping treated waste water to the central Victorian club means the fairways, tees and greens will be kept green. And the idea of recycled sewage and testing for salt and E. coli put no-one off their game.

The water situation became more desperate, the EPA have been more congenial with regard to using it and certainly we have a full environmental plan in place. The local water company is on par, promising 70 megalitres of waste water a year until 2032. The next stage - which includes laying 9km of pipe throughout the course - requires $200,000. Besides assistance from all three tiers of government, that's a lot of raffle tickets.

We've already had fundraising nights, casserole teas with entertainment, raffles. Water companies say that with proper testing and treatment, other sporting grounds, such as football ovals, could benefit from recycled sewage. Kate McGrath, Ten News. A young bear had the shock of his life

after climbing what he thought was a tree. It turned out to be a power pole and he was stranded 30m off the ground. Authorities closed the highway near Los Angeles to give the animal time to consider his predicament. After enjoying the view for a while, the bear made it back down by himself. It's thought he was forced out of his home in nearby mountains because of recent bushfires.
