Doctors continue to monitor his health and are waiting for swelling of his brain to subside before they learn the full extent of his injuries. The 65-year-old has been in a coma since last Thursday following a fall at his home. Showbiz correspondent Peter Ford is outside the Prince Alfred Hospital in Melbourne. Good morning to you. Has there been any update on his condition? Well, I hate talking in cliches but I am afraid I have to. They say no news is good news and frankly, there is no news.

We have to wait. Doctors know best. They are stopping Molly' friends from visiting him? It is practical and appropriate. Molly has a very small circle of very close friends and obviously family as well. Those people can access him at the moment, but Molly also has probably thousands of people who consider him to be a friend, I am one of those people but there is a lot of us. It wouldn't be possible for people to be lining up to see him at this point in time.

The asylum seeker boat tragedy is front-page news this morning. Tales of survival are emerging after the vessel sank off Indonesia. Some of those plucked from the waters have told how the captain and crew grabbed life vests Good on you. The tragedy shows the extent some people are prepared to go to to get to Australia. But do authorities need to get tougher with those who are running the people smuggling operations? Yes, they think there was a link to the guys who were arrested last time. You have to say yes, but they are based in Indonesian, we can't do much about it. I got a bit narcy with some of the coverage that tended to make us feel guilty. Sort of, Australia's role in this. I kept thinking, " thinking, "Blimey! It is a terrible thing. But a bunch of people get on in Indonesia, what are we meant to do about it? We can't do about it? We can't shadow everyone. And an Indonesian crew. Tell us what you think on that one. Also making news - the new inquest into the disappearance of Azaria Chamberlain more than 30 years ago. This will be the fourth inquest and will consider material related to dingo attacks on other young children. But will it really get to the bottom of what happened to baby Azaria? Just remind me, I thought the last one cleared. It was... There has been three, one that cleared her, one that didn't and the third one. An open finding. This will be the fourth. Because there have been dingo attacks on children since then, they want to prove that a dingo could have taken her. It is a tough one. Maybe there are new ways of testing? That is it, forensic science moves forward. They may be able to come to some conclusion, if not, the same ground and dragging it for everyone involved. But Michael chamberlen has spoken and said he is happy. Also making news - the list of the most annoying words for 2011. "Whatever" reigns supreme for the third year in a row. So true! True. And "seriously" rounded out the group. That's what my youngest daughter keeps saying. My son says it too. Past entrants on the list include "to tell you the truth", "you know what I mean", and "actually". Absolutely should be another one. What is the most annoying were, Tweet us.

We are at work. Hello to all the people in Gosford too. (inhales) too. (inhales). Later - cosmetic surgery on the cheap. The real risks of heading overseas. But first here's Sam with the news. Investigations into the tragic boat accident off Indonesia are underway with local authorities looking at whether an associate of a people smuggling kingpin dispatched the boat. As many as 150 people are missing after the vessel sank off the coast of Java. We don't know how many yet The heavily overloaded boat broke apart in rough seas. It's believed there were around 250 people onboard. Qantas engineers have struck a deal with the airline, bringing to an end a long-running industrial dispute. The agreement will be presented to Fair Work Australia this afternoon. It's understood workers will be given annual pay rises of 3% and allow Qantas to bring in new work practices. It comes two months after the Flying Kangaroo grounded its entire fleet. At least 650 people are dead and more than 800 others are missing after a powerful tropical storm triggered flash flooding and landslides in the Philippines. Entire communities on the island of Mindanao were washed away by the raging waters that struck in the middle of the night. Sifting through piles of debris, bewildered residents have been left to salvage what they can. For many, the devastation is too much to bear. The powerful storm hit the island of Mindanao late on Friday night. A month's worth of rain in 12 hours sent torrents of water and mud rushing through villages. Streets were transformed into raging rivers. The powerful surge carried cars away and brought down bridges. Terrified residents scrambled for higher ground as entire communities were washed away. The death toll stands at around 650 but that number is expected to rise. More than 800 people have been reported missing. It's a vast area and there's the whole area where people are living that has been affected, it's almost 500,000 people and it's quite, ah, not an easy area to move around in. Tens of thousands are now sheltering in evacuation centres while others remain in their homes with no electricity or running water. Around 20,000 soldiers have been sent in to help with rescue-and-relief efforts. Music guru Molly Meldrum remains in a critical but stable condition after falling from a ladder at his home last week. Molly has been in a coma since the accident. Doctors are waiting for swelling on his brain to subside before they can learn the extent of his injuries. They say, "No news is good news" and frankly there is no news. Molly's condition hasn't changed at all but that is what is to be expected - everything is going to plan. Stars from around the world have expressed their support for the 65-year-old. We're being urged to think of those less fortunate The Smith Family, which deliver hampers, are doing it tough this festive season. They urgently need donations to help families trying to make ends meet. We're well behind our target. We're 51% of the way towards our 4 million target and there's only a week to run til Christmas. The Salvation Army also wants us to dig deep and buy a present for someone needy from the Kmart Wishing Tree. That is a really good thing to do too, get behind them. too, get behind them.

Ricky Ponting's Hobart Hurricanes notched a comfortable 31-run win over the Perth Scorchers in last night's Big Bash League clash at the WACA. The Hurricanes notched what looked to be a sub-par total of 140 but it proved to be more than enough, with the Scorchers dismissed for 109. In last night's other match, the Adelaide Strikers defeated the Melbourne Renegades by 67 runs at Adelaide Oval. The Strikers were never troubled after posting 5/189. Manchester City has retained its place atop the Premier League ladder with a 1-0 win over Arsenal this morning. David Silva broke the deadlock early in the second half.

('BETTER GET A LAWYER' BY THE CRUEL SEA PLAYS) Sunrise goes after Australia's most wanted. We do know that the 30-year-old was a career criminal it's been investigated by police... Sunrise, gets results. We had an overwhelming response to last week's segment about that assault... Crime Stoppers, Mondays, only on Australia's number one breakfast show, Sunrise. This week's crime stoppers case has baffled police for a decade. 23-year-old Rachelle Childs was found murdered on the New South Wales south coast in 2001. Her parents, Graham and Ann, have always suspected she was killed by someone she knew. Now they want your help to find their daughter's killer. We have Rachelle Childs suiting up. Who could do such a thing and why would they do such a thing to such a beautiful girl? After all this time, Rachelle's parents are still searching for the answers to their questions. There are times when you go quiet smoothly and then all of a sudden a song or an event and you're right back there in 2001. That was the year Rachelle died. June 7th - a Thursday night. Run us through what happened that night? She met somebody, they believe she may have met that person at bargo hotel. Seven hours later in bushland at Gerroa, 90 kilometres away, her body was found By a security guard who was passing by and noticed it. Notice a fire just off the side of the road, went in there to put out the fire and that fire happened to be my daughter. Rachelle's car was located two days later at the Bargo Hotel. At the time, all the patrons at the pub had their DNA tested but it was never confirmed she went inside. During a coronial inquest in 2008 it was revealed the police had narrowed their hunt down to seven persons of interest. But ten years since the murder they are no closer to finding who killed her. The worst nightmare is someone to ring up in the middle of the night and say we have caught this person, he has done it to another person. What would it mean for you to catch the killer? Everything, just to hopefully get answers and put it behind us on a level. The reward for catching Rachelle's killer has just been doubled to $ killer has just been doubled to $200,000. There has to be someone who knows, someone with a guilty conscience, maybe? They have lived with that for and a half years. They are hoping the doubling of the reward will They have lived with that for ten

After nearly nine years of conflict, US combat troops have finally withdrawn from Iraq. Around 500 soldiers have now crossed the border into Kuwait. The withdrawal marks the official end of the Iraq War. Almost 5,000 US troops and 100,000 Iraqis have been killed since the conflict began in 2003. CNN reporter Arwa Damon joins us from the Iraqi capital, Baghdad. And Sunrise foreign editor Dr Keith Suter is in Melbourne. Arwa, did the withdrawal go off without a hitch? It did, from the US perspective. Most certainly. No Attacks on that final convoy that final convoy that many Americans were concerned about. But when it comes to the Iraqis, it is important to point out while the US has delaired the end of the war, Iraq remain as war zone and Iraqis have conflicting emotions about the role America played here. Many did initially welcome the toppling Saddam Hussein but had little say in the political transpations after. At initially welcome the toppling of

one time, al-Qaeda controlling huge

swats of the country and it descended into severe sectarian blood-letting, neighbours turns on neighbours and because of the heavy price Iraqis paid they cannot view this as a success or victory. The type of nation has left America has left behind, the violence has not ended. It is far from being stable. So, are the locals there, the general public in Baghdad, are they glad to see the Americans go or they feeling abandoned? You know, it is not a yes or no answer to any of those questions when we pose them. Many of them are glad to see the end of what they view as being an obpation. They resented the fact Americans were able to do whatever they wanted to in their streets, act with absolute and utter impunity and not be held accountable but there are grave concerns about the type of Iraq America is leaving behind. There are those who believe the US troop withdrawal is happening too soon and the Iraqi forces can't hold it together and the government is already beginning to fracture. there are the real concerns about Iran's influence, the footprint it already beginning to fracture. Then

has established in today's Iraq, that concern express td amongst the Sunni and Kurdish population. Many tell you they dreamed America would bring prosperity and they say have been left with anything but. bring prosperity and they say they Keith, I can't help but bring back the images of the aircraft carrier, the huge sign, mission accomplished all those years ago. What has been achieved? Well, it is a good question. The comment we made at the time back in 2003 is America had won the war but thought yet won the peace. If you look at it, what we have seen is eight years of continuing strife and problems. So now, in Iraq, you have got a quarter of the population living in poverty, women in a worse position than this position than position than they were in 2003, over 1 million people internally displaced, one of the most corrupt stouz in the world, they don't have an air force. They are trapped between Syria and Iran which are

boat on the boil. Potentially a rich country because of the oil there is also potentially a lot of instability. We went in there because of so-call weapons of mass destruction. That turned out to be a no show, then it no show, then it was all about oil, what about oil? Does America control the oil output there is What is interesting, America only represents about 10% of the foreign direct investment in Iraq, indeed, if anyone has benefit from

think it will be the Chinese because if anyone has benefit from it I they are sitting on a lot of foreign-exchange reserves and they are in a position to exploit investments opportunity within Iraq. It is fascinating to see, I suppose America now has to just focus on Afghanistan. Thank you. Thank you. Residents across Victoria and South Australia after being battered by severe thunderstorms and flash flooding. In some parts there was even hail the size of golf balls. Meteorologist Tom Saunders is from the Weather Channel. Have the storms now cleared from South Australia and Victoria? They have cleared from South Australia. They had their big storms on Saturday.

The warning has been cancelled tut but it would be issued again as the storms track through the state this afternoon. What is the outlook for Christmas? The lead-up to Christmas, Tuesday to Sunday will be mostly dry for southern parts of Australia, but isolated showers and thunderstorms will continue on the oest east coast.

OK, is it too early to look OK, is it too early to look to New Year's Day?

Local police are now looking at whether a people-smuggling kingpin is linked to the accident. The wooden vessel was heavily overloaded with asylum seekers when it capsized about 70km off the coast of Java. Around 250 people were crammed onto the boat which was designed to carry 100. Local fisherman have rescued at least 87 despite strong currents and waves up to 5m high but the grim search continues for any more survivors. We don't know how many yet, um, but potentially dozens and dozens of people have died. Those onboard were mainly from Afghanistan, Iran and Iraq and had paid up to $5,000 each to make the dangerous journey to Australia. It's a day when you see things like this happen being a humanitarian one. Both the government and Coalition say now is not the time to talk about the politics of the issue. But former Labor leader Mark Latham has weighed in, blaming the government's onshore processing policy. You can't have a good heart if you encourage people to get on boats that sink. Two Indonesian navy ships and hundreds of sailors have joined the search while Australia has also offered assistance. since the Christmas Island boat crash claimed 50 asylum seekers. Almost two months after Qantas grounded its entire fleet the airline and one of the three unions have agreed to a truce. Qantas and the engineers' union will present Fair Work Australia with an agreement to end their long-running stand-off this afternoon. The deal is understood to see annual pay rises of 3% and allow Qantas to bring in new work practices. It's expected Fair Work will ratify the deal by the end of the year. Residents through parts of Victoria are mopping up this morning after storms and heavy rain across the weekend. Severe thunderstorms caused roads and homes to flood. A number of properties were also evacuated. There were more than 240 calls for assistance. Stall in Victoria had 74mm Stawel in Victoria had 74mm at one stage that included 27mm in just 10 minutes. As a result of that rainfall there was flash flooding. Some parts of the state received more than double the average monthly rainfall. A home that was for sale in Sydney has been left badly damaged by fire. The blaze broke out at the Guildford property early this morning. When crews arrived, the home was well alight. Neighbours say they heard some loud banging before the fire started. It's being treated as suspicious. A toddler has been killed in a car accident in the New South Wales central west. The 3-year-old died after the 4-wheel-drive she was travelling in crashed into a tree at Cudal, near Orange, late yesterday. The male driver was trapped for some time before being rescued. A woman and two other young children were also taken to hospital. Rescuers are searching for more than 800 people still missing after a powerful typhoon triggered flash flooding in the Philippines. The storm has already claimed at least 650 lives and forced thousands into evacuation centres. On an ilen where entire have been washed away the only means On an ilen where entire villages to reach some survivors is now by air. A region of the Philippines not formally prone to typhoons, Mindanao received the full force. Now helping the survivors will be huge task, even with 20,000 Filipino servicemen deployed, the immediate problem is to stay alive. 70% of the yare has no access to water. So people at the evacuation centres are really having a Hardman time looking for water. They do not have water or resources. So as the queues form, more than thee50 are known to have died with 800 listed as missing. The government and Red Cross are appealing for help to appealing for help to feed and shelter the people. The danger is that floods will be followed by famine and disease. Relief workers are trying to warn survivors the worst is perhaps not over. Coming up - the online debacle that's left shoppers without their Christmas presents. But first here's Kochie.

Saturday morning, our time. Just two points lower. Wall Street was treading water,

well. We had a good end to the week in our region. European markets were softer as

Time for sport. Here's Beretts. Thanks, Kochie. The Adelaide Strikers have struck an early blow in the Big Bash League, upstaging the more fancied Melbourne Renegades at Adelaide Oval last night. The Strikers cruised to a 67-run victory after amassing an impressive 5/189. COMMENTATOR: Is it out or is it six? That's an amazing shot. He goes the ramp, all the way for six. You're kidding. At the WACA, Ricky Ponting could only manage 17 but his Hobart Hurricanes still defeated the Perth Scorchers by 31 runs. as the Scorchers collapsed to be all out for 109 in reply to Hobart's 140. Melbourne Victory's sluggish start to the A-League season appears to be over judging by last night's 3-1 victory over Wellington at AAMI Park. The home side scored 3 goals inside the opening 25 minutes including a spectacular long-range strike from Diogo Ferreira. Meanwhile, Lionel Messi's all-conquering Barcelona outfit has collected another piece of silverware. The Spanish giants thumped Brazilian side Santos 4-0 last night, in the final of FIFA's Club World Cup. England's Ian Poulter has broken back into the top 20 in the world rankings following his win in the Australian Masters at Victoria Golf Club. Geoff Ogilvy started the day with a 2-shot lead but fell apart in the blustery conditions. In contrast, Poulter fired a flawless 4-under 67 to cruise home by three shots and collect his first gold jacket. And the V8 Supercar family and the Australian and New Zealand sport lost one of its best-loved members late last week. Jason Richards lost his courageous 14-month battle with stomach cancer. He was a 3-time Bathurst runner-up in 2005, 2008, and 2009. Jason had 285 starts in V8 Supercars, climbed the podium 12 times and won in Winton in 2006. A public memorial service to honour Jason will be held at Sandown in coming weeks. Jason was just 35 and our thoughts are with his wife, Charlotte, and young daughters, Sienna and Olivia. He was a wonderful bloke. Outstanding young fellow, very sad. Just a tragic, tragic story. Now to today wfs Perth forecast. James is here today. Thank you, it has been a huge year for Sunrise weather. Some massive stunts, some world firsts, this morning I want to try to do something that had never been done before. I thought I found it. I am going towalk on water. Turns out has been done before, but not in Australia. I going towalk on water. Turns out it

Australia. I couldn't get the exact length of time it was done for or measurement so it could be a world record this morning. This is how I'm doing it. An Oz Bobble, all I need to do is get in. Open the big ziper and dive in. This is going to be graceful. Sorry about the view. OK. So this is my Oz Bobble, we need to reinflate and then, I will attempt to walk on water. Let's have a look at the weather forecast before we do it. OK. I'm in. Doesn't, sound like an echo to you? I am getting mixed emotions. We going snin OK, here we go. Wohh! OK. Now, to get up, apparently you just got to run pretty fast. It's quite, it's quite, almost up. It might not happen, but I will be up in half an hour. I will walk on water this morning. Keep practising. There's a breakthrough this morning in the bitter ongoing dispute between Qantas and its staff. The airline and its engineers have reached agreement on a new pay and conditions package. Sunrise correspondent Edwina Bartholomew joins us now. What have they agreed to? This has been a really tough dispute. Hasn't it? A lot of grievances involved. What it have they agreed to? We understand it is a three-year agreement, they have been in compulsory arbitration Work Australia since the Work Australia since the end of October and will see a 3% annual pay compulsory arbitration through Fair

rise for the engineers and changes to work practices rise for the engineers and see changes to checks on aircraft in transit. It addresses most of the changes to work practices including

unions' sticking opponents but one issue didn't get involved. The union wanted a construction of the hangar for the heavy maintenance of the A 380 to be built here but it will still take place offshore. From memory, they are in Fair Work Australia already, so these negotiations have been going out of that. Do they have to report back? Yes, this will need to be presented to Fair Work Australia and it will take place this afternoon. It to be ratified so that will likely take place by the end of the month take place this afternoon. It needs

or possibly into January. They have got it listed Work Australia at 2 o'clock this afternoon. So hopefully it will be They have got it listed for Fair

rubber-stamped thro. Qantas is in a standoff with other unions? Yes, of course, can you believe it? rubber-stamped thro. Qantas is still

It has been two months since you and I were covering the grounding of Qantas. They are still battling out the bagic union and the pilots association. the bagic union and the pilots association.. the bagic union and the pilots association... The TWU will go before Fair Work Australia in March. The pilots association were banned from taking strike action and they are still fighting the decision. That is expected to go before the federal court in February. It seems to take an extraordinarily long time but the good news, no strike action disrupting the Christmas holidays. Yep, good news. Thank you. The search is continuing for more than 150 asylum seekers headed for Australia. They're feared drowned after their boat sank off the Indonesian island of Java. Local authorities say the overcrowded vessel they were on capsized in rough seas. It was reportedly carrying 250 people There are conflicting reports about how many survivors have been rescued but it comes a year after the Christmas Island tragedy Joining me now is Andrew Beswick from Amnesty International. Good morning. This is the second incident of its kind in the space of two months. How big of a concern is it? Can we expect more boats? Well, I think you need to consider the situation with these people. First of all, I would like to express our condolences for the tragic loss of life and our thoughts go to the families of those who perished and those who survaived. This is a really sad situation. I think what we need to bear in mind is these are families fleeing violence and these people wouldn't take the risks if they felt they had the alternative but unfortunately, they don't feel they do. So what is Australia to do? It is a stalemate, the opposition is blaming the government and saying the off-shore processing solution was better and won't pass the government's policies. What do you think should happen? What what the we think needs to happen is people need a safe alternative to getting on risky boats. It means in Asia, and working with the region Australia has a role to play, we need to ensure people have a safe place to stay. If they are able to be integrate under to the community there or countries such as Australia can increase resettlement numbers we are providing people with alternatives rather than forcing these risks. Would it stop people? If we took more people more people through the legal route? These people have been in camps often for many years and are desperate. It is not illegal to seek asylum in Australia. But the resettlement is another option for people. Obviously, if it means they don't have to go on a boat it is a preferred option. We would like to encourage other countries to do their fair share in terms of helping those people and work with in the region to make sure places those people and work with countries like Malaysia are much safer for people to go and our information is that, the situation is still very dangerous for people in Malaysia. And it continues to be a crack down on people there. As long as that happens people won't feel safe. Thank you very much. A number of Aussie families are facing major disappointment come Christmas morning after being told the gifts they ordered online won't be ready in time. Big W has been bombarded with complaints from angry customers who bought presents weeks ago only to be told there's no guarantee they'll arrive by Sunday. It's really hard trying to tell kids that Christmas is delayed because someone's lost all your toys. We asked Big W for an explanation. The store acknowledged there had been issues and that it's working closely with Australia Post regarding delivery of items. The company also says it's taking steps to ensure the same problems don't occur again next year. Next year is a long way away for the people affected by this. Ingrid Just is from consumer group CHOICE. Is BW doing enough? It is their lay buy system that has had issues. Good news that they are now offering full refunds, including the service fee for lay buys to those people who are affected. But some of these people made purchases in June or July or some of these people made their September of this year and they thought they were organised for Christmas and a week out to be told they are now going to have to go out and shop for those presents again. At least it is not the 24th December they are being told. It points to the fact businesses need to make sure their online processerise streamlined especially at these busy times of the year. It is the first time they did the online lay buy service. Will they get the refunds before Christmas. People are e-mailing saying that is fine but we need the money now to buy presents. I was Talking with Big W yesterday, but we known transaction period, we know banks take a couple of days to put the refund back into your account. That could be where there is delay. Incredibly furstrating for the customers. Did Big W get on to it quick enough? I was on the site yesterday and looking carefully and there are warnings about the delays. I think again, it is another indication how important it is to use all of communication with your customers through communication, SMS, e-mail, important it is to use all channel

Brave the crowds and help the retailers. Here is Kochie. Family and friends of Molly Meldrum are playing a waiting game as doctors continue to monitor his health. The 65-year-old remains in a coma following a fall at his home last Thursday. Doctors are standing by for swelling of his brain to subside before they learn the full extent of his injuries. Molly's Manager Mark Klemens is outside the Prince Alfred Hospital in Melbourne. Is there any update on Molly's condition? Yes, sure, look it is steady as she goes. He is still in a stable condition. He had very good night last night, stable, but e still on the critical list but I guess they have saying to us it is going to plan. And that's what it appears to be. At this stage, we have no indication as to when he is to be taken out of the induced coma. indication as to when he is likely One would think and hope in the next day or so that will take place. They clearly need to do a CAT scan before they make that determination. We should explain Molly is in an induced coma on the instructions of the doctors to allow him tile to heal, not that he is getting more critical. No, he is not deteriorating at all. It is great news. Part of the normal process. It is textbook as I understand it. It does allow him to heal. Hopefully that will continue. Mate, you know how much we love Molly here on Sunrise. Absolutely. He is such a cornerstone of the program. Are you stunned at the reaction this is getting reaction this is getting from around the world? From basically music royalty around the world? Quite extraordinary, Kochie. It, you know, David Bowie sent me an e-mail the other day. I got an obscure one from Susan Boyle's fan club in the US, they saw the interview he did with her and fell in love with him. He endears himself to many people, e I have known him for many years as you have. He is a wonderful person who endears himself to celebrity. I have never seen the response. He is one of Australia's great characters. Our prayers are with him. characters. Our prayers are with him. Before you go, can I just say bon half of the family and Molly I know would want me to say this, thank you to everybody, people who don't know him, people who just love watching him and being part of his life on television and radio and inmedia, thank you to everybody so much, thank you to everybody so much, it does make a difference and fingers crossed for the future. That is very nice, thank you on behalf of everyone who is praying and hoping for a quick recovery for Molly. Prince Harry is back in the headlines but this time, it's a positive story. He came to the rescue after a friend was mugged on a London street. After trying to help his mate, he gave a witness statement to police. An investigation is now underway. Joining me now is royal correspondent Rob Jobson. Good morning. Rob, tell us a bit more about what happened. Well, Prince Harry was on the phone to one of his school chums, have been friends for that long, to one of his school chums, they Tomas Van Strabensy when he was mugged in the street. His BlackBerry, we don't know how he got there so quick but he is a motor bike fiend and probably jump said on his Du his Ducati, by the time he got there, his friend was at the police station and an investigation is under way. We believe he was the first-ever royal to walk into police station and help witness a crime. That would have been quite unusual for the police officers to see. he had no problems doing that's, for the police officers to see. But obviously? Yes, he didn't have any problems, we don't know at the moment, because it is sketchy, whether he was companied by the Scotland yard protection officer from Special Operations 14, a shock for the mugger if Harry turned up on the motor bike and an armed policeman too. But he is prone to it, he may have jump on his motorbike and help his pal. Go, Hazza, we say. Harry the hero. Mpgts a bit of cynicism in the voice. You are being tough. No! Good on him for going and making a police statement. Still ahead - the bushfire safety ad that victims of Black Saturday want banned. Plus, Monday's news, sport and weather.

Rescue teams will face rough seas when they search for as many as 200 people still missing after their overcrowded boat capsized off Indonesia. It was reportedly carrying 250 people, mostly from Afghanistan, Iraq and Iran, to Australia. Amnesty International says it's a tragic situation. What we need to bear in mind is that these are families fleeing violence and these people wouldn't take these risks if they felt that they had an alternative and unfortunately they don't feel that they do. Local police are looking at whether a people-smuggling kingpin is linked to the accident. Qantas engineers have struck a deal with the airline, bringing to an end a long-running industrial dispute. The agreement will be presented to Fair Work Australia this afternoon. It's understood workers will be given annual pay rises of 3% and allow Qantas to bring in new work practices. It comes two months after the Flying Kangaroo grounded its entire fleet. Molly Meldrum remains critically ill after falling from a ladder on Thursday night. The music guru has been in a coma since the accident, with doctors still waiting for swelling on his brain to subside.

Celebrities from Australia and around the world have expressed their support for Molly. He fell while putting up Christmas decorations at his Melbourne home. The death toll from a powerful typhoon in the Philippines has risen to 650. Entire communities on the island of Mindanao were washed away by raging floodwaters that struck in the middle of the night. 800 people remain missing.

Around 20,000 soldiers have been sent in to help with rescue and relief efforts. The last US troops have withdrawn from Iraq after nearly nine years of conflict. The soldiers crossed over the border into neighbouring Kuwait, officially bringing an end to the costly war. Experts are questioning whether the mission was successful. Now, in Iraq, you've got a quarter of the population living in poverty, you've got women in a worse position than what they were in 2003, over a million people internally displaced. Almost 5,000 American troops and 100,000 Iraqis have been killed since the conflict began in 2003. A group of prominent Australians is calling on the Federal Government to safeguard the human rights of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Former Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser is among those who've written the open letter.

Ricky Ponting's Hobart Hurricanes notched a comfortable 31-run win over the Perth Scorchers in last night's Big Bash League clash at the WACA. The Hurricanes notched what looked to be a sub-par total of 140 but it proved to be more than enough, with the Scorchers dismissed for 109. In last night's other match, the Adelaide Strikers defeated the Melbourne Renegades by 67 runs at Adelaide Oval. The Strikers were never troubled after posting 5/189.
