The backbench is not into that. Mr Howard maintains he'll heed the call but suggests it won't come any time soon. The speculation is not helpful because it diverts us from what we should be doing. And that's exactly what's happening. Everywhere they go now, ministers and Liberal MPs are having to fend off questions of a handover deadline and where their allegiance would lie should a challenge be called. Oh, not today. I got off the plane at 6:00 this morning. Even State leaders called on for advice. Wrangle? What wrangle. We don't wrangle in the Liberal Party.

MAN: We will endeavour to be the perfect ambassadors for our wonderful country - an honour I shall never forget. Kevin Wilde, Ten News. Australia Fashion Week is proving to be a financial bonanza for designers showcasing their stuff to the world. Ten News reporter Dan Nolan is there. Sandra, it's a case of watch out Paris because at Australian Fashion Week business is booming. I'm back stage here after tonight's parade by one of New Zealand's top labels, Zambezi. But don't worry too much about the Kiwis because it's the Aussie designers that are red hot at the moment. Fashion Week organisers have reported tonight that they're now expecting $60 million in sales. Some designers who've shown this week have already tripled, that's right, tripled their forecast sales. The world's here - all the big buyers, all the big media, the designers - we've had brilliant shows in these first two days so we're really excited for what the rest of the week holds. If business is booming then one designer who'll be taking plenty of orders is Alex Perry. We saw his collection this morning. He's a red carpet favourite with celebrities around the country and when you see Alex Perry's latest collection you can understand why, on such a momentous occasion is something beyond my wildest dreams. More than 100,000 Australians served in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. The original Victory Europe Day was an enormous party, especially in London. If you can imagine it was the greatest scene of emotion let down in my life and I was happy to be there. That's the way it is. As he will be there in Paris on Sunday marking six decades since the war ended. Pat Smith will have husband Tom with her, but only in spirit. We'll manage. I think he might be there with me. After hostilities ended, Dudley Marrows met the German

His gowns turn heads wherever they go, the inspiration for this lot tied closely to his Greek heritage. Gorgeous, glamorous, you know, women that party on Greek islands and, you know, look amazing. With a reputation as one of Australia's most glamorous designers, fashion shows have become a lot easier for Alex Perry. He makes clothes pleasing to his eyes not the critics', and slaps the show together in just four weeks. What I show needs to look world class but I just have to do it with a little bit less time and a little bit less money. And, of course, money is what Fashion Week is really all about. Buyers from around the world outlaying big bucks and the orders keep getting bigger. When we first had Alannah Hill I think, we placed orders of about ?30,000 a season. Now that's up to ?80,000 a season. Today she wanted to check out the collection from Bare by Rebecca Davies. It was billed to showcase her first foray into underwear, although most of the models preferred to go without. Dan Nolan, Ten News. Teenagers at a Bible study class face Armageddon. That story's still to come in tonight's Late News. Also tonight - why archeologists are awestruck by this delightful discovery. Maybe the most beautiful mummy ever found in Egypt. And - she looks like a sheep, acts like a dog. Why this pet is sitting on the fence? She shakes hands, she jumps up on you, she licks you, and she eats dog food. GIRL 2: He's so off his face. I didn't know he'd get so into dope. Yeah. He's been smoking more and more. POLICE RADIO CHATTER Now, Miss, tell me exactly what happened. I don't know what happened. She was just suddenly there. I didn't mean to hurt anyone! I didn't see her! I didn't know it could mess his head up that much. She's not doing too well. Doesn't surprise me. It's like I don't know her anymore. She's really changed. Get it to Dan! Get it to Dan! Not again! Wake up! I don't know what's wrong with him these days. Spectacular pictures of a church ablaze in Texas. About 15 teenagers in a Bible study class escaped without injury from this inferno at an Arlington church. Firefighters rushing to the scene were confronted with huge flames and thick, black smoke. A large 2-storey building being used for youth activities at the church was destroyed. The teenagers were able to escape after smelling smoke. The cause of the fire isn't known. The evidence against the Bali Nine continues to mount with heroin found inside two more suitcases in a Kuta hotel. Police believe they belonged to one of the alleged ringleaders. An insight into accused drug trafficker Andrew Chan's isolation. Desperate for sunlight, he eats breakfast pushed against cell bars. Indonesian guards know his every move. The Sydney man's only reprieve is when he's let out for interrogation. From the pattern of these interviews it appears he could be cooperating with police, leading them to more evidence. Indonesian authorities claim two suitcases found at a Kuta hotel containing narcotics are linked to the Bali Nine. Forensic testing confirm the drug is heroin. An Australian Federal Police officer was present when the cases were tested. Police raided Chan's hotel in Kuta which stands opposite the Melasti Hotel where four of the Australians were detained. It's here police say the accused gang mastermind booked a room under a false name. These hotels are the perfect place to remain anonymous because they're so popular with Australian tourists. Even Schapelle Corby's mother Ros has stayed at the Melasti. Luggage seized during the first raids was also transported to the forensic laboratory for testing. Even if the new seizure belongs to the accused traffickers, it won't change the death penalty their alleged crime attracts. As each day passes, it gets harder for them. Renae Lawrence has lost weight and the language barrier makes receiving her daily medication an enormously difficult task. In Bali, Martine Griffiths, Ten News. An American soldier has pleaded guilty to abusing Iraqi prisoners at the Abu Ghraib prison. In return for fessing up, Private Lynndie England is expected to serve a reduced prison sentence. Lynndie England, the woman in the middle, demure, diminutive and off to plead guilty in return for a maximum sentence of only 30 months. Last year this 22-year-old private became the poster girl of perhaps the worst human rights scandal in recent US history, blithely playing her part in the systematic abuse of Iraqi prisoners and clearly enjoying it. Casual snaps turned into emblems of torture, creating shock at home and revulsion abroad. The symbol of America is not the Statute of Liberty, it's the prisoner standing on a box wearing a dark cape and a dark hood on his head. Exactly one year ago, Capitol Hill bristled with special hearings and demands for heads to roll. None did, although the Administration denounced the use of torture. Last week a Pentagon inquiry cleared all senior officers of wrongdoing. The message that has come down through the various internal investigations put together by the Pentagon is that the senior leadership is not going to take the fall for this stuff, despite the fact that there are written memos that talk about authorising some of these techniques. Lynndie England next to her ex-boyfriend, Charles Graner. A year ago, she and five others said they were following orders. Now they've pleaded guilty. Bad apples, according to the Pentagon, but the suspicion lingers that the rot spreads much further. Archaeologists have hailed their latest discovery the most beautiful mummy ever. The mummy is over 2,300 years old. They don't know who it was but on its case several images of Egyptian gods and their children. The sand revealed maybe the most beautiful mummy ever found in Egypt. Authorities will soon use a CAT scan to take a closer look inside the rare find. When we come back - she looks like a sheep and acts like a dog so why is this pet sitting on the fence? She shakes hands, she jumps up on you, she licks you, and she eats dog food. And in 'Sports Tonight' - we'll take you to new A-League club Sydney FC's glittering red carpet launch. WOMAN: Boofy hair weather. Frizz Defence from Pantene. MAN: Je t'aime. three-times better frizz control DANCE MUSIC GIRL: Are you alright? Roll her over! What did she take? I don't know what was in it! I think it was ecstasy. (Whimpers) Hey, are you alright? BOY: I don't know why she takes it. She always gets so depressed coming down. Hmm. Done quite a bit of damage in there. I didn't know how many health problems it could cause. The grinding has cracked your front teeth. This is pretty serious. (Doctor barks orders) GIRL: They don't know whether he's gonna make it. NURSE: It's touch and go. We're doing all we can. He just wanted to try something new. A dramatic rescue off Africa with dozens of people saved when a boat capsized. Almost 50 people are thought to have drowned after their vessel sank in the busy shipping channel off the coast of Somalia. Babies and children are among the dead. Nearby frigates raced to the scene and began taking passengers off the boat after it started taking on water. An inquiry's under way to find the cause of the disaster. The search continues for the missing. Now to finance and CommSec's Tom Piotrowski. Tom, yet more profit warnings battered the market again today?
