It is obviously a freak occurrence.

Something very unusual.

A while searching for the wreckage

and clues to the incident, Air

France has called counsellors in

for the families of passengers on

Air France flight 447.

A heated exchange in the Federal

Coalition party room also -- almost

came to blows -- plays today,

prompting one of Malcolm Turnbull's

most senior MPs to boycott future

meetings. What prompted the block?

It seems it was a heated discussion

of a three-cornered contests in NSW.

Alby Schultz, the main protagonists,

believes Liberals should run up

against nationals in every contest.

He was storming out of the party

room when one of his colleagues,

Chris Pearce, wished him a nice day.

He took this as a provocation and

one MP said he grabs Mr Pearce.

Whatever happened, the official

spokesman for the party said it was

a regrettable incident and there

were apologies all round. Other

parties told me Alby Schultz will

not now attend Liberal Party ought

joint party meetings in future, but joint party meetings in future, but

whether this is a sign he will

become an independent is not clear.

Also, the Reserve Bank left

interest rates on hold, but the

economy had some good news.

I think we might be seeing some of

those green shoots, or may be light

debate is doing little to restore

Malcolm Turnbull raised the prospect of higher interest rates.

That will jeopardise Labor's

Four men have been branded cowards

and murderers after running away

from a fatal car crash in Sydney.

The group was joyriding in a stolen

taxi when it slammed into another

car. It was one reckless moment -

an illegal joyride that claimed an

innocent young man's life. 20-year-

old Wissam Ahmad had a big smile

and a big family.

A big -- beautiful boy.

It happened at Punchbowl at 1am. A

stolen taxi ran a red light and T-

boned Mr Wissam's Nissan sportscar.

I heard a bang, bang, bang.

Mr Amat was thrown from the

wreckage and died. His older cousin,

suffered critical head and internal

injuries. The four men in the cab

ran off, leaving distraught family ran off, leaving distraught family

members and friends to pick up the pieces.

Coward murderers - that is what

they are. Not only they did it, they ran away.

We witnesses say the cap was

speeding down the wrong side of

Punchbowl Road, overtaking other

vehicles. The Nissan sportscar

headed the other way never stood a chance.

His parents are devastated -

something like that to happen to

their eldest son - it is not easy

and they are taking it very hard.

The taxi was taken from Belmore at

9pm. Police have carried out DNA

tests on aid and are looking at in- cab security video.

Hopefully they will have images of the occupants.

Anyone who knows who they are, dob

them in, bringing to justice,

because it will save their families.

A world famous building climber has

been arrested for scaling a Sydney

skyscraper. Police are

investigating a PR's company part

in the stunt, which brought the city to a standstill.

Today Frenchman Alain Robert set

his sights on Sydney's obvious

power to raise awareness of global

warming. He scaled the towel with

note ropes, harnesses or permission.

Police were forced to close the

roads, as hundreds of people

watched on in amazement. The 46-

year-old scrambled to the top in 10

minutes, with just his bare hands

and climbing shoes. Police on the

ground had been left powerless. By

ground had been left powerless. By

the time the at -- they are right,

the climber was well up the

building. They just had to wait for

him to come down.

It is time-consuming and costly to

the taxpayers of the state. The

stunt was managed by a PR company

Max Markson.

The media were told, but not the police.

You held a press conference telling

us he was going to climb the building?

Yes, but I was shocked - I thought it was just a joke.

There is a possibility of being

arrested for aiding and abetting S

-- offences of all types.

Police took Robert the way to be

arrested and charged. He will face court tomorrow afternoon.

A second Australian a cruise ship

is now feared to have swine flu on

board. One week after leaving

Sydney, the Dawn Princess has been

turned away from New Caledonia

while tests are carried out on five

passengers showing symptoms. The

ship had come from ports in Fiji

and Vanuatu as part of a 13-day

South Pacific tour.

The ship has not been to affected

countries, particularly by swine

flu, but we are taking all

precautionary measures.

The ship's 2000 passengers are due

back in Sydney on Friday. Earlier

this week, the ship's's sister ship,

Pacific Dawn arrived back with 46

confirmed cases. Australia has 400

confirmed cases, most in Victoria.

State of Origin fans travelling to

Melbourne have also been urged to

be aware of swine flu.

Yes, Victoria is the swine flu

capital at the moment. The health

warnings for Blues and Maroons supporters had been spelled out?

Yes, the NSW health minister John

della busker today warned fans

travelling south to take

precautions of basic hygiene to

avoid picking up to swine flu. The

doctor has been in touch with all

of the players to avoid swine flu

coming into the camp here. Face

marks will be available at the game.

There is speculation that we might

see a little bit of Origin biffo?

We almost got through without

seeing any of it. Who cannot forget

1995 - it was one of the biggest

roles in Origin history. The

question came up today.

I am not much of a ball myself, but

he knows what happens on the night?

Anything could happen, but we will

see what happens.

will have the latest coming up in sport. sport.

A man has been shot dead by police

after threatening officers with a

knife in Armidale in the State's

north. Police say they called on

the man to drop the weapon, but he

continued to threaten them and a

shot was fired. A specialised team

will be established to investigate.

A long-running neighbourhood

dispute very nearly ended in

tragedy today. Police found a man

still standing over artist Cameron

Sparks when they arrived at his

Waverton home. Police subdued the

41-year-old suspect with capsicum

spray. He's now helping police with

their inquiries. The victim, who's

in his late 70s, was rushed to

North Shore hospital with head

injuries. He'd been hit with a

blunt object. We're looking at the

background of both persons involved,

including the background of the

person we have taken into custody.

Police believe the attack was

played out in both the victim and the attacker's homes.

The Kings Cross policewoman, robbed

and bashed on her way to work, is

recovering so well she could be

home with her family in a fortnight.

Sergeant Samantha Barlow was let

out of hospital for a few hours to

spend time with her husband.

Together they bought a handbag to

replace the one that was stolen in

last month's attack. The mother of

two is out of intensive care. Her

injuries were initially likened to

those of assault victim Lauren

Huxley. Sergeant Barlow wants to

return to work, as soon as she is fit enough.

It was one small block of land

which caused one very large fight.

But today the battle was won and

lost. Camden Councils decision to

take into consideration town

planning considerations only has

been shown to be justified, and

it's a good result for the

residents of Camden. After months

of angry demonstrations and nasty

name-calling, the Land and

Environment Court today quashed a

last-ditch appeal to build a Muslim

school in Camden. Its reason - the

land is not zoned for this type of

development. It's pretty keen to

find objections to any development.

We could have found objections to

the Harbor Bridge or Opera House.

The Islamic group who proposed the

900- student school says the Camden

community is the ultimate loser

because it would miss out on growth

and development. Camden residents

don't see things that way. We're

not racist, we just don't want a

Muslim school in our town. I don't

see how that's racist. We don't

need things like that here, The

town will get on quite well without

them. The community initially

objected to the development because

of concerns about traffic and

sewerage. But the Muslim leaders

aren't giving up on their dreams of

building a school to cater

specifically for their religious

needs. They'll meet tonight to

discuss what to do with this block

of land, and any other potential

sites. This was always a bad

development, and we can see a bad

development from a country mile away.

The State Government's been

embarrassed by a significant pre-

budget leak - details of roads

spending revealing there's no new

money for much needed major

projects. Ten reporter James Boyce

is at State Parliament. James, the

Roads Minister must be fuming about

this leak? This document reveals

how much of the Reiss Government

was relying on the Prime Minister

to hand over billions of dollars

for roads in the May federal Budget.

We now know this money will not be

forthcoming. The premiere has had

to scrap any plans of building the

M4 tunnel or the M5 tunnel. When

the minister are confronted our

cameras to explain what he thought

about the leak, he was determined

to put a positive spin on things.

What I can tell you, I will be

receiving a record speed of $4.4

billion. We will be spending a

record amount. What I am here today

to do, is to talk about the fact

that we have a record a Rhodes

spent in NSW by allocating it a

record $4.4 million. I think we

have got the idea it will be a

record spend. Where is the money

going to back only about a quarter

of it will be spent on roads in

Sydney. 2 billion it will be spent

in regional NSW. Two-thirds of that

for the Pacific Highway. This is

technically a drop in funding for

NSW. This left the minister seeding.

We can expect some more positive

sanctioned leaks from the minister

in the coming days. Rest assured

that they are already starting the

man hunt for the person responsible

for the leak to the Opposition.

This is a sensational place.

Everything is recycled. There is a

big water tank. They have check-ins,

they are laying their own eggs. It

is a brilliant century. What about

The government is closely monitoring the recent outbreak of human swine influenza in Australia and is taking steps to help limit its spread. You can minimise the spread of flu by covering your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough, disposing of used tissues in the bin, washing your hands often and thoroughly. If you are unwell, seek medical advice and try to avoid close contact with others. For further information, visit the website or call 180 2007.

Let's check on the traffic. It is

going to be a slow trip home for

motorists heading into Castle Hill.

There were earlier problems coming

out of the Beecroft tunnel, where

we are now. This is the traffic

Taxpayers could soon be funding a

radical weight loss treatment. A

gastric bands surgery to be added

to Medicare, although some health

experts are sceptical.

nation battles with an obesity nation battles with an obesity epidemic.

Here it is costing taxpayers an

A Parliamentary committee believes

gastric bands could help stem the

spending and has recommended the

government fund the extreme weight

loss treatment which shrinks the stomach.

For those in dire straits he needs

to change their life immediately

because they have no other option.

Every dollar spent on gastric bands

in probably saves about $10 later on.

I got to a point where diets were

not working and I was getting

sicker and sicker. I knew it was

something I had to look into having done.

About 60 % to 70% will have remission of their symptoms following

following gastric bands surgery.

People have the gastric bands put

on and they do not learn anything

about themselves. There is no

change in habits, or they can do is

eat smaller, more frequent meals.

The committee recommended

guidelines on the amounts of salt

and sugar in our food on how it is

labelled. The government is waiting

for a full report, before weighing

up all recommendations, but that

has not one MP from making his own changes.

The ING Direct finance report now.

It did indeed. It seemed nothing

restructuring plan gave investors

hope of a quick turnaround for the

iconic carmaker. News is not quite

as good for Melbourne-based brake

maker Pacifica Group. It says GM's

bankruptcy is likely to have an

adverse effect on its earnings for

Relief for 6,000 Australian workers,

spared from a global giant's up

bankruptcy crisis. Holden's

operations here survive unscathed

from the dramatic collapse of its

United States parent, General Motors.

Amid worldwide financial doom, it

is rare for a corporate bankruptcy

to cause it celebration down under.

I would say this is good news for

the Australian economy.

Australia is now to be one of the

key centres in the Asia-Pacific

region, along with China and Korea.

Holden believes GM's overnight

bankruptcy filing will only

accelerate local production and

even turn the Australian arm a

much-needed profit.

We can learn a lot of money here.

We can do it on a revenue bases

Holden is also confident its

dealers and suppliers will not be

affected as the American parent is

forced to become a leaner and

greener car company. There is no

doubt that Holden here will also be

looking to produce a more eco-

friendly fleet of cars. With its

much publicised and government-

subsidised new four-cylinder

vehicle expected to come out next

the green car federal Innovation

plans but the 29-year-old didn't

see enough ball for the Waratahs

this season. He hasn't had a lot of

opportunity, to be fair. And Sonny

Bill Williams had his first run with his Barbarians team-mates

today. Samantha Stosur has become

the first Australian woman to make

it to the French Open quarterfinals

in more than two decades. In the

men's Roger Federer won after

fighting back from 2-0 down. Stosur

will now play Romanian Sorana

Cirstea for a semi-final spot.

Samantha Stosur made history with

this serve. The number 30 seed

became the first Australian woman

to reach the French Open

quarterfinals since Nicole Provis

in 1988, beating Frenchwoman

Virginie Razzano in straight sets.

I am very happy that I went from

having those opportunities and not

getting them, I still do the right

thing. World Number five, Jelena

Jankovic, bowed out at the hands of

Sorana Cirstea while Serena

Williams cruised into the final

eight. In the men's draw, another

upset looked on the cards when

second seed Roger Federer was

trailing 2-0 against Tommy Haas.

Who would have believed this. But

with the title race now wide open,

the Swiss turned up the heat -

showing all his class to get back

into the game, taking the final

three sets 6-4, 6-0, 6-2. He'll now

face local hero Gail Monfils in the

quarterfinals. In Sports Tonight at
