"Nowadays everyone is killing," he'd like to say. Police think so too. Souza and his son Rafael are being investigated for allegedly ordering a series of murders that they then filmed for the show. None too happy now that he himself has become the news. A search on Souza's home gave up bundles of cash and ammunition. Souza denies the claims and his lawyer says there is no proof. Certainly in this largely lawless state this is no easy case. Souza holds real power - a politician, a law-maker, a former police officer. He's believed to be involved in exactly what his TV show claims to rally against. Police say that ordering the execution of drug barons not only boosted ratings but eliminated rivals. Suddenly the investigations and the arrests are not popular. Accompanied by armed police, Judge Antony says people that have worked in this case have all been threatened.

Television can be a cut-throat business. Until now, though, not literally. Now for your first look at Thursday's weather. A fine day on the way for Brisbane. Sydney will be mostly sunny. Melbourne can expect a shower or two. It will be cloudy in Canberra. Rain easing in Hobart. Mostly fine in Adelaide. Darwin will get some early fog before a fine day. Showers in Perth. Coming up on 'Sunrise' at 6am - the latest from the Kokoda crash site. But next on Seven Early News - a man charged over Britain's largest jewel heist. And stories of survival after the Taiwan typhoon.

Welcome back. You're watching Seven's Early News. Indonesian police have revealed the man killed in last weekend's shootout was not Noordin Top but a florist who helped carry out the Jakarta hotel bombings. The man named only as Ibrohim

had worked in the Ritz-Carlton and Marriott hotels for at least two years. Police say he resigned and disappeared on the morning of the bombings which killed three Australians. Security footage shows Ibrohim taking the suicide bombers around the hotel and smuggling explosives in via the loading dock. A man has been arrested over Britain's biggest jewellery heist.

43 pieces of jewellery worth $80 million were stolen from an exclusive Mayfair store by two men armed with guns. Police received a number of tip-offs after releasing photos of the pair. Mobile phone video shows them leaving, taking a female shop assistant hostage. The woman was released before the robbers jumped into a getaway car.

More than 20 people have been injured after two rollercoaster cars collided at a popular adventure park in the UK. The crash happened on the Big Dipper at Blackpool Pleasure Beach after one car became wedged in the railing. A second car then smashed into the back of it. Riders were trapped for two hours before being rescued by firemen. Search crews have rescued more than 700 people who had been missing since Typhoon Morakot battered east Asia. Hundreds of people are still unaccounted for and the death toll is rising. A rescue worker battles against raging floodwaters. Moments later, the sound of the rope snapping. The man's colleagues raced to save him as he clings to the upturned boat. Eventually they pull him to shore.

Typhoon Morakot has brought unimaginable devastation to remote villages in southern Taiwan. 67 people are dead and four days into the relief effort no-one knows how many are missing. Rescuers pick through the debris of the catastrophic mudslides desperately calling out for survivors. So far, 700 people have been found.

Helicopters air-lift them to safety, the only way to reach them as the floods have swept away roads and bridges. Those left behind can only count the cost. This man says, "This place is filled with misery. "I cannot speak of my sorrow - I am very miserable." Even the wildlife is paying the price of this tragedy. At the centre of rescue operations in Qishan a school playing field has been converted into a makeshift landing pad. With so many wounded, the hospital is struggling to cope. Meanwhile, distraught relatives wait for news knowing that as each hour passes the hope is fading. South Australian police are in a right pickle trying to catch a gang of cucumber thieves. The burglars have struck a dozen times north of Adelaide, bagging more than $10,000 worth of vegetables. Police admit they're baffled. The thieves know exactly when the cucumbers have been picked. They strike overnight, loading up boxes, baskets or bags ready for market. We've had thefts ranging from about 30 odd bags through to 150 bags

so the impact on the growers is significant. Since May, six glasshouses at Waterloo Corner, five at Virginia and one at Buckland Park have been targeted. Once they've been stolen, it's impossible to tell where a cucumber's come from. Police say there's a growing black market. Detectives say the thieves could be jealous growers whose crops have failed. If they're actually growers themselves they'd just take it back to their farms, they'd pack it and sell it interstate or go down to the markets here. It's not hard to sell, be easy for them to sell. So if you've seen suspicious vehicles near a glasshouse or been offered a crate of cheap cuies, call the cops. Some grower's put his livelihood there, he's now lost that opportunity to get money for the family. These economic times, it is hard, so we are looking at it as a serious issue.

Your first finance this Early News: Coming up on 'Sunrise' at 6am - Mel and Kochie simplify the climate change debate. But next on Seven Early News - mixed news for the Dragons at the NRL judiciary. And the Socceroos take an early lead against Ireland.

The stories we're following on the Early News. Investigations into the Papua New Guinea plane crash will be stepped up today. Defence Force personnel headed for the crash site this morning. Australian troops in Afghanistan have shot two members of the country's police force, killing one. The men were in civilian clothes when they refused to stop at a checkpoint. And the host of a crime reality TV show in Brazil has been accused of ordering murders to increase the show's ratings. It's claimed he arranged the killings so he could get his cameras to the crime scenes before police. Now it's over to Mark Beretta with all the day's sport. The Socceroos and Ireland are puting on a great spectacle in this morning's friendly in Limerick. Not long into the second half, the Aussies lead 2-0. A stirring tribute to the late and great Sir Bobby Robson set the scene for a frantic first half. The Aussies were tested early but Mark Schwarzer was up to the challenge. But the Socceroos hit back through the man of the moment Tim Cahill. And just minutes later Cahill struck again to give the Socceroos a 2-0 lead at the break. A mixed night for the Dragons at the NRL judiciary ahead of Saturday's clash with the Raiders. In a major boost, prop Justin Poore is free to play after he successfully argued for a downgrade of his dangerous throw charge against Panthers winger Shane Elford. By fighting the charge he risked a 3-week ban. Yeah, obviously very happy with the hearing I received and very excited to play Canberra this weekend. However, centre Beau Scott wasn't as fortunate - rubbed out for one game after being found guilty of a dangerous throw on Wade Graham. Yeah, ah, happy with the hearing, disappointed with the outcome. Thanks. 2010 will be the final year at the helm for premiership winning Swans coach Paul Roos. Citing family reasons for his decision Roos will hand over the reins to his faithful assistant John Longmire after one more season with Sydney. I've always said I'm not going to be a career coach and I felt at the time when I took the role I was the right person to do the job for Sydney. Roos won't be lost to the Swans, though, he'll assist with talent identification and player development after next year. Jessicah Schipper has produced another world record performance on the final night of the Australian short course titles in Hobart. Schipper was pushed all the way by Felicity Galvez in the 100 metres butterfly. COMMENTATOR: Going to close to a world record! What a way to finish, yes! She shaved 0.06 second off the old mark set by Libby Trickett in 2008. That's all for now. I'll be back with more sport a little later in 'Sunrise', Nat. Thanks, Beretts.
