Her legal team says it will be able to use the new evidence when it takes the case to the High Court in Jakarta, The pressure however is mounting, particularly on her lawyer, Lely Lubis. She broke down in the arms of Ros Corby. It seems they both think the chances of an acquittal are minimal. Poor baby, Lely's a poor baby. As it finally reaches its conclusion, the trial, with all its twists and turns, is proving fascinating viewing for those who usually watch from home. It gives me goosebumps. A verdict is expected at the end of the month. Martine Griffiths, Ten News. A long overdue reunion tonight for the Australian woman mistakenly deported to the Philippines. There was relief as Vivian Alvarez caught up with her sister, but also anger over what went so horribly wrong. to the list. Tourists were keen to add their names people who believe she's innocent. with petitions signed by 15,000 Mercedes, came to the trial The accused drug smuggler's sister, the cocaine was brought in. incredibly on the exact same day was planted in her luggage The 27-year-old alleges marijuana at Sydney airport. using corrupt baggage handlers and a cocaine-smuggling operation with the Corby case has said there is no link The Federal Police Commissioner of life imprisonment overseas. who is in danger for an Australian citizen and he should not do it In Australia he could not do that, he's saying. That's what, in other words, of Schapelle is guilty. He's in suppport of a cover-up. Commissioner Mick Keelty accusing Australian Federal Police Outside, though, they unleashed, new evidence respectfully in court. they still tried to introduce the knew it was futile, Although Schapelle Corby's lawyers allowing written evidence. but then relented, claims of airport drug smuggling - the judges refused to hear other In a dramatic day, to support her story. and there's a new glimmer of hope has been set for May 27, For four years Vivian Alvarez's family thought she was dead. Now, finally, a reunion with her sister, Cecile. Can we ask how you are feeling? Yes, interesting. Are you happy to see me? Yes. I would like some cigarettes. Since she was thrown out of Australia in 2001, Vivian has been cared for at a hospice in the town of Olongapo. But until yesterday, nobody knew she was there. Are you going to look after me? Yes, of course. I am stronger than you are right now, as you can see. You have a room for me? Joy, as well, for Vivian's brother in Australia. We are very, very happy and we are overwhelmed to find her alive. But Mr Solon is furious she was deported. It's believed Vivian was disoriented after a car accident, speaking a Filipino language and telling authorities she was not from Australia. Her family was never told of her deportation, Her family was never told of her deportation, and despite recent Government promises to find her, her location was confirmed only through media reports. Clearly the circumstances of this case, on the available information, appear very sad and it will be a matter of sorrow and regret. Appalling. It's....four years, I mean... ..first it's a mistake, then it's another mistake, I mean, it just keeps going on. Vivian Alvarez is the second mentally ill woman held as an illegal immigrant after Cornelia Rau was detained at Baxter. The country's top mental health experts are demanding major changes. It's really a case of enough's enough. We have got to deal with this and there is a great moral problem facing our country. An embarrassed Immigration Minister resisting calls for a royal commission but trying to make amends. If she wants to come home, of course we will bring her home. Laurel Irving, Ten News. Kim Beazley has moved to trump the Treasurer, offering double the tax cuts to middle Australia. The Opposition Leader will tonight confront his critics, outlining his own vision for the taxation system. The Treasurer has turned up the pressure on Labor to pass his tax cuts rushing the bill into Parliament. They are demonstrating that they stand for higher taxes But in his Budget reply tonight, Mr Beazley will try to gazump the Treasurer. He will propose a $12-a-week tax cut for most taxpayers instead of the $6 on offer and suggest it can be funded by slashing top earners' savings from $65 to $40. I am there as Leader of the Labor Party to fight for the 7 million Australians who were dudded in this Government's tax package. Mr Beazley is clearly hoping these moves will calm his colleagues, who are none too happy with the threat to block the bill. One frontbencher unwilling to defend the tactics. I think Kim and Wayne Swan will be handling that. What do you think, though? It's in their carriage. Even supporters see it as crazy brave. Leadership is about making hard decisions but he's demonstrating he has the courage of his convictions. This morning the ALP is in absolute chaos, chaos, Mr Speaker, because of the briliant 'Blackadder'-like tactics. They have a cunning plan, Mr Speaker, a cunning plan. The Labor cunning plan would also drop the top tax threshold to $100,000 which would catch most politicians. Labor will put its plan into the Senate as amendments which the Government is sure to reject but at least it gives Kim Beazley a feather to fly with in the tax debate. Paul Bongiorno, Ten News. Calls tonight for a millionaire businessman to be jailed after he was caught doing 231km/h on his way to Canberra. 51-year-old Alan Shortall says there were reasons for driving his Bentley so fast but next time he'll probably catch a plane. There wasn't a radar in sight today but it's unlikely Alan Shortall's leisurely stroll would've registered anyway. A different story, though, on Tuesday night, when police clocked him at 231km/h on his way to Canberra. Do you think you'd have been better off catching a plane perhaps? Well, certainly being a bloody idiot doesn't feel good, so chances are I'll take a plane next time. The 51-year-old CEO of a major medical supply company was driving his 2004 Bentley Continental - similar to this one. There were mitigating circumstances which the police are aware of but regardless of that it does not excuse my behaviour. Mr Shortall won't reveal what those reasons were. He also denies his excuse to the highway patrolman was that he was running late for dinner with the Prime Minister. Police don't keep a list of the State's worst speeding offenders - But road safety experts say this one could be the worst ever. Look, it's the fastest that I've heard of. Whether its the fastest overall, I don't know, but it is definitely the fastest speed that I've heard. He says at 231 k's an hour, Alan Shortall could've wiped out an entire family. You would have to mount a very good argument as to why this person shouldn't be in jail. I've got no doubt anyone who drives at that speed on our roads should lose their licence for life. The message in this story for your viewers is don't be a bloody idiot like me. It was irresponsible and there's no excuse for it. A magistrate will have the final say next month. Dan Nolan, Ten News. Still to come - Sydney communities join forces to fight a suspected paedophile. Plus - the mum-to-be who claims she had a terrifying encounter with those CityRail turnstyles. And the boy king - we finally find out what Tutankhamen really looked like and what sort of shape he was in.

This program is captioned live. A possible ray of hope for hostage Douglas Wood. Australia's Islamic spiritual leader, in Iraq to try to negotiate his release, says the kidnappers have agreed to extend the deadline for his safe return. Images of Douglas Wood, the loving husband and father, part of a fresh plea for his freedom. A new website in Arabic and English is appealing directly to his captors, who may be offering a reprieve. Australia's Islamic spiritual leader, in Baghdad on a mercy mission for the Wood family, says he has been negotiating with the kidnappers through Iraq's senior Muslim clerics. And in his first interview, he told a journalist he's secured an extension of the deadline for Australian troops to withdraw from Iraq in exchange for Douglas Wood's freedom. I asked him what time this is and he said 72 hours, and according to Australian time, that's midnight Thursday - midnight tonight. A claim the Australian Government can't confirm. We don't really know, actually. We just hope, yeah. We hope he will eventually be released. Despite no word on the 63-year-old engineer since this disturbing video, the Australian mufti believes Douglas Wood is alive and well and is prepared to risk his own life for confirmation. Even if it means being blindfolded and taken to wherever destination they nominate. And offers of help continue from unlikely quarters. Former terror suspect and Guantanamo Bay inmate Mamdouh Habib says he's also prepared to travel to Iraq claiming that he, a former prisoner of the Americans, could sway Douglas Wood's captors. But as violence in Iraq escalates, there's new fear for the fate of a Japanese hostage. An eyewitness saying he suffered fatal wounds during his capture. Deborah Knight, Ten News. A bizarre shooting in Sydney's south this afternoon - a man turning a pistol on himself after being questioned by police. The man and his girlfriend were arguing loudly in a parked van when a police patrol stopped to question them. As police started to search him, it's alleged the 44-year-old man ran, pulling out the gun. He fired twice - the second shot hitting him in the head. He was taken to hospital, but died a short time ago. It's believed the officers didn't have time to pull their weapons before the man shot himself. An independent police investigation is under way. A lucky escape for a policeman dragged 30m by a stolen car in Sydney's west. The officer was carrying out a registration check when the vehicle took off at high speed. forced to let go as the car approached a brick wall. Police later found the suspects and their baby in an underground car park. But in the back seat was a young child in a type of bassinet which was not fully secured. The officer's receiving treatment for an injured ankle. Charges are pending. Communities in our west have joined forces to fight off a suspected paedophile gang preying on schoolchildren. Police have spent the day trying to piece together descriptions of the men from terrified children. The fear of a paedophile attack on one of their children is very real for these parents. You can see I'm a wreck. My kids, they're all I've got and I want to protect them. Very scared that there's people out there attacking these little kids. It just hurts and makes me scared thinking my daughter could be taken. There's been four incidents in the past two weeks where children from Blacktown West, Walter Street Primary and Evans High School have had to run for their lives after men have tried to lure them into vehicles. Schools in the area sending out warning letters to families to be on the lookout for anything suspicious before and after school, outlining one of the recent incidents where a man in a blue van approached a young girl. Education officials also urging parents to talk to their children about stranger danger. Detectives are investigating several similar attacks. While police have stepped up patrols before and after school, parents say there's more that can be done. They want schools in the local area to band together and share information and descriptions of school predators. Tim Potter, Ten News. A pregnant Sydney woman is demanding an apology from CityRail after she was slammed by a ticket barrier. The incident, plus the uncaring reaction of staff, is being investigated. Expectant mum Ellen Lloyd Shepherd feared for her unborn baby's health when a Town Hall station ticket barrier slammed into her. While I was halfway through the barrier, the barrier shut onto my stomach. It was extremely painful and I was very, very upset. She was rushed to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital for tests that showed contractions had begun five weeks early. This might happen to somebody else. My baby is OK, but if it hadn't been, that's really awful. RailCorp can't work out from security video what went wrong, but say the barrier was serviced the day before. The uncaring response of a platform staff member is also being looked at. The scare comes on the back of a snap strike that again left commuters late for work. Exactly why maintenance workers walked off the job last night remains in dispute. They don't like the fact that random testing units that random testing units are turning up at their locations. But the main union says it doesn't have a problem with drug testing. That's evident by places like Sydney Ferries and Buses where the union sat down with those organisations and successfully negotiated. Ending the high level of distrust among some unions and RailCorp would be a welcome breakthrough as a result of this afternoon's meeting organised by the Transport Minister. Passengers need that to happen if improvements are to occur long term. Kevin Wilde, Ten News. Checking the weather with Tim Bailey. Checking the weather with Tim Bailey.

Former ATSIC chairman Geoff Clark has won a legal battle against two women who claimed he'd raped them. Joanne McGuinness and Carol Anne Stingel alleged Mr Clark attacked them in separate incidents decades ago. But Victoria's Court of Appeal today ruled they've run out of time to sue him for psychological damage. I hope you're suffering, Geoff Clark, I really do. And I know you are, because you've got nothing - you lost your job. Geoff Clark has always denied the claims. Panic on the streets of Washington - the capital put on red alert as fighter jets were scrambled. A plane breaching a no-go zone, apparently headed for the White House. WOMAN: Go, go, go, go! Running scared in the halls of power. People getting out as quickly as they can, the city on red alert. Just above them, fighter jets targeting a light plane that's ignored warnings and apparently is headed for the White House. Folks, you have to get off the grounds, now. Let's go, guys, move! And move they did, shutting down the Government mid-vote. As people dashed for cover, a Secret Service detail took the President and Mrs Bush to safety. The pilot was not responding to efforts to communicate with the plane and then at 12:03 the alert level was raised to red. With the Cessna still on course for the White House, the pilots flew tight circles around it, even firing warning flares. With panicked people still running to who knows where the Cessna pilot finally got the message and landed. There were no bombs, just a lot of embarrassment. The pilot and student had been going to an airshow, a scenic shortcut across Washington seeming like a good idea at the time. Their next trip to the US capital will be for a court appearance. Patrick Burns, Ten News. The first star witness has taken the stand in the Michael Jackson paedophile trial. Actor Macaulay Culkin admitting he slept with Jackson plenty of times but insists it was never sexual. Macaulay Culkin decided it was time to tell jurors what he's often told the media. I never saw anything. You know, I was never party to anything like that at all. Now 24, Culkin was just 10 when he became friends with Jackson. He just invited me over to his house and so I said, "Sure, why not?" He describes as absolutely ridiculous claims by two prosecution witnesses they saw him being molested by Jackson. He admitted sharing the star's bed countless times but said he would have known if Jackson had tried to molest him while he was asleep. Explaining it was not love or lust which drew Jackson to him but a shared experience of being child stars. Why he liked me was the fact that I didn't care who he was. That was the thing. I talked to him like he was a normal human being. Pleading with jurors to understand that Jackson lives a childlike life because he was deprived of a normal childhood. But the prosecution asked Culkin how childlike it was for Jackson to keep pornography in his bedroom. Macaulay said very, admitting he had copies of 'Playboy' when he was 12. The prosection insists Culkin's evidence should be taken with a grain of salt because he's an actor whose career could suffer if he admits he was abused. But analysts believe his star status will weigh heavily with jurors. This is their opportunity to relate to someone whose name they've heard of before, whose face they're familiar with.

Bringing the dead back to life - science usually used to solve murders has brought us a first look at Egypt's King Tutankhamen the day he died. Who's a pretty boy then? 3,000 years after he died, modern science gives us the first real look at history's most famous pharaoh - King Tutankhamen. We can say now that using forensic techniques, it can reconstruct ancient people's faces. We can really know for the first time and change mummies from dead to alive. The incredible model is a facial reconstruction of King Tut based on CT scans done of his mummy in January. A portable scanning machine was taken into the Valley of the Kings and 1,700 images were taken. They revealed the 19-year-old was about 1.7m, or 5'6", healthy and well-fed. But as to rumours he was murdered... There is no evidence of a blow to the back of the head or indication of foul play, but radiologists did confirm this week that there is a fracture to the left leg. Experts speculating the injury might have got infected and killed him. King Tut has captured imaginations around the world since Howard Carter discovered the tomb full of treasures 83 years ago. The child pharaoh, who came to power at just nine, is the first to go under the scanner. Five more royal mummies are going through the process now and there are more to come. We have 10,000 mummies that we will do. We can, for the first time, know what the pharaohs looked like and that is very interesting for everyone. Angela Bishop, Ten News. Sport with Leigh Diffey - and Sydney's new soccer team in line for a million-dollar bonus. Yes ,into the local final of the World Club Championship qualifiers, but they claim they've got the rough end of the deal. Why shortly. Plus - Australia's greatest basketballer, Andrew Gaze, retires. Also - a rolling maul of sorts as Braith Anasta meets rugby supremos. We'll tell when he'll make a decision. And a rough ride - one of our top cyclists gets cut off in Italy.

Lowest prices are just the beginning. This program is captioned live. Bulldogs five-eighth Braith Anasta will decide within the next two weeks just whether his future lies in league or union. Today Anasta fronted Wallabies coach Eddie Jones to dispell talk that switching codes wasn't a real option. There was no secrecy about Braith Anasta's much-awaited meeting with the rival code. He came in through the front door for talks which lasted just half an hour. Anasta emerged, looking for a quick getaway. I don't really want to talk about it. What about you, mate? I mean, just turning up, it shows you're genuinely interested. Yeah, definitely interested, for sure. Figures for both codes suggest that, with sponsorships and third-party agreements, the money is comparable. The Dogs have previously offered him $300,000 a year. Wallaby coach Eddie Jones didn't think Anasta was using rugby to secure a better deal in league. You can never be convinced, but we certainly believe his interest in playing rugby is genuine. Jones reported his findings to Waratahs coach Ewen McKenzie, who was more than wary, after previous negotiations failed. I think he's initiated the whole process. It hasn't come from us, so he's initiated the whole process, that might suggest something. While McKenzie wants Anasta to fill the Waratahs' troublesome No. 10 spot, there is a downside. He'll be taking the spot of a rugby union player that's gone through the ranks and is just about to make his entrance onto the stage when suddenly, stage right, here comes Braith Anasta taking his spot. While rugby union officials were delighted with the meeting and the attention that it attracted, the Bulldogs weren't surprised. They'll now open up talks with Anasta. Those talks began this afternoon, with the Dogs hopeful. I know he wants to stay with the Bulldogs, that's the main thing. Braithy told us that, and his manager has told us that as well. If he stays in rugby league, there's every chance he'll stay with us. The NRL won't buy into it like they did to retain Andrew Johns. We helped to the extent that we could within the rules, and we'd do that for Braith, but we won't be making exceptions to the rules. Tony Peters, Ten News. It's an all-NSW final to decide Australia's entry for the rich World Club Championship qualifers. Sydney FC will square off against the Central Coast Mariners. Even though Sunday's decider has now been switched from Adelaide to Gosford, Sydney say they copped an unfair draw. While they're delighted to be in the final, Sydney FC's players were hardly jumping out of their skin at Perth airport today. In spite of the game being moved to their home State, star striker David Zdrilic believes his team are badly disadvantaged. It's not really a bonus for us at all It's not really a bonus for us at all because It's not really a bonus for us at all because it's It's not really a bonus for us at all because it's not It's not really a bonus for us at all because it's not our It's not really a bonus for us at all because it's not our home ground, ground, central all because it's not our home all because it's not our home ground, central coast are now playing three depaims at home, we've we've had playing three depaims at home, we've had to playing three depaims at home, we've had to travel. playing three depaims at home, we've had to travel. It's playing three depaims at home, we've had to travel. It's NSW playing three depaims at home, we've had to travel. It's NSW but not Sydney. If you see us, we're on the other side of the country and we the other side of the country and we have the other side of the country and we have to the other side of the country and we have to travel the other side of the country and the other side of the country and we have to travel back so it's not easy. Unfortunately for Pierre Littbarski's team, no suitable soccer venues in Sydney were available, but while the team are travel-weary, last night's come-from-behind 2-1 win against the Glory in Perth has given them a big shot of confidence, galvanised team We're going to stay strong as a unit We're going to stay strong as a unit and We're going to stay strong as a unit and that's We're going to stay strong as a unit and that's what We're going to stay strong as a We're going to stay strong as a unit and that's what we've done. We'll did go to central coast and We'll did go to central coast and hopefully get a good result. Sydney are clearly keen to put the pressure of favouritism on their local rivals. The Central Coast team have been the surprise packet of the competition, last night hammering Adelaide 4-0. Striker Nick Mrja scoring a hat-trick after being embroiled in controversy in the build-up to the match when he broke the leg of Newcastle's Andrew Durante in the opening game. Especially after the dramas of Especially after the dramas of the last game and bouncing back, for

me, personally, I can't explain it. It's great. Neil Cordy, Ten News. Everton have been given a Champions League wake-up call, hammered 7-0 by Arsenal. In what could be his last game at Highbury, Gunners hero Dennis Bergkamp turned on a spectacular display of skill helping create the opening three goals of the match, the first falling to countryman Robin Van Persie. Patrick Vieira finished off another superb piece of play before Bergkamp made the most of his chance to shine. CHEERING The thrashing completed in the final minutes when the home side knocked in their seventh. South Americans are known for their passionate love of soccer, but sometimes that passion gets the better of them. Goalkeeper Ignacio Gonzalez had already been booked for dissent by strict referee Enrique Osses but when the stopper decided to go on with it, he saw red - in more ways than one. That shove earned Gonzalez a 22-match ban from Chile's Football Association. He could also face criminal charges under a law aimed at curbing violence in sports stadiums. It's official - the career of Australia's greatest basketballer, Andrew Gaze, the 39-year-old announcing his retirement along with his father and long-time coach, Lindsay. Despite the ever-present smile, Andrew found some tears as well. The five time Olympian's achievements are legendary - more than 600 NBL games, the record points scorer and MVP on seven occasions. A nasty fall for Aussie cyclist Baden Cooke, the victim of a rough-house finish in the Giro D'Italia. In the race to the line Cooke was running second when he was cut off by Olympic road race champion Paolo Bettini and slammed into the advertising boards. Cooke was able to walk over the finish line but wasn't interested in Bettini's excuses, waving him away. Neither were race officials, who disqualified the Italian for dangerous riding, awarding the stage to compatriot Luca Mazanti. A taste of the Gold Coast's Lexmark Indy 300 for Sydney today.
