Two people went to hospital, but were not admitted. First there was the feel-good global concert, now the political fall out.

In London for talks on poverty, Labor's Kevin Rudd is attacking the Howard Government's aid priorities - just 3% of Australia's $2.5 billion a year aid program goes to Africa. Our aid levels are really much too low. It's a bit pathetic. An organisation like World Vision gives more to Africa than the Australian Government at the moment. We are concentrating on the very real needs that are to be found right here on Australia's doorstep. But the focus on Australia's aid effort is only likely to increase in the lead up to a UN conference on world aid later this year. Australia and Japan are the only OECD countries yet to set a timetable for increased aid spending, And we're calling on the Howard Government to lift its game. But the Government argues Africa faces a greater poverty problem - trade barriers. There's an elephant in the room that can't be ignored and that's protectionism in the rich countries.

A 2-word insult that can't be repeated here has cost League star Bryan Fletcher dearly. South Sydney has stripped him of the club's captaincy, dumped him for one game and dished out a hefty fine after he let fly with a racial slur against Parramatta's Dean Widders during yesterday's game. He's a player who's done it all, but Bryan Fletcher fears he may now be remembered for this one foolish act. It wasn't racism - it was just a comment I shouldn't have made and, for that, as I said, it was just stupid. Stupidity that has cost him the captaincy of Rugby League's most famous club. He's also been suspended for one match, fined $10,000 and will join Widders doing charity work with Aborigines. I can't complain, I've done the wrong thing. It's probably the worst the thing you could ever do, I think. And what makes it even harder to understand is that they're former team-mates who have been friends for more than a decade. He said to me, "I still can't work out why I said it." He said, "It just came out of my mouth "and I can't work out why." Widders says it's the first time he's encountered racism in Rugby League and while he's accepted Fletcher's apology, he also felt compelled to make a stand. Racial vilification is something that I'm 100% against and I don't think any sportsman or any person should ever revert to using those comments. It's important that penalties are imposed so that people in our game understand the ramifications of their actions. Paul Crawley, National Nine News. Still together - Shane Warne's family continues to work through this painful time, in the south of Spain. They were out strolling in a resort town last night finalising details of their separation, before Simone Warne returns to Australia with their three children. Pushing the pram with his family, Shane and Simone Warne with their children after an evening meal at a pizza restaurant. Mummy! Mummy! A quiet casual stroll in this Spanish summer evening and no sign of the tension that split this family. The Warnes have been at this southern Spanish holiday village for the past week after the couple announced they were separating. But, despite these family holiday images, Simone Warne confirmed exclusively to National Nine News last night her marriage has broken down and is soon returning to Melbourne with the couple's three children. Only three weeks ago Warne had moved his family to England from Melbourne telling us at the time it was a fresh start. At the moment I'll be living here, the family will be living here, the kids will be going to school here. But the Australian Test team, preparing for the Ashes, is uncertain about Warne's return, fitness and focus. No doubt there could be something else that bobs up down the track but I think, again, one of the strengths of the side has been that it does tend to deal with controversies or distractions, as you'd call it, or issues off-field. It's thought team management is becoming anxious about their valued spin bowler's return to training ahead of the first Ashes Test, here at Lords - although none are asking any hard questions until at least next week when Shane Warne indicated he'd be back from Spain after settling details of his separation.

On the anniversary of one of Sydney's most intriguing mysteries, an appeal today for new information on the apparent murder of heiress Juanita Nielsen. 30 years on, her former partner wants to know where her body is buried. Those who know, please have the courage to come forward. It's time for them to reveal at least where the body is and let's put a closure to this. Crime figures have denied murdering Nielsen, who was campaigning against high-rise development in Kings Cross. The State and Federal Governments are joining together to clean up the banks of the Hawkesbury-Nepean River. More than $14 million has been earmarked for the catchment area over 3 years. This money will see much-needed work carried out on the banks Hawkesbury-Nepean catchment area, and will breathe life back into the Hawkesbury area. It's also hoped the package will protect native bushland. Going to a pub or club just got a lot more comfortable for non-smokers with new bans which restrict smoking to just one room. And after plenty of warning there didn't appear to be too much resistance from drinkers, but the pubs themselves fear their profits will go up in smoke. Health Department inspectors were out and about making sure the new laws were being followed. Which area is smoke free and which area you allow smoking? Although their puffing rights have been severely curtailed many smokers understand the need for the restrictions. For all the other people to have a fair go, too. Shouldn't have to smoke in front of people who don't like it, so it's okay. In this city club yesterday, this area was a smoking zone. Today, the air was much fresher. The industry says it understands the health benefits of the new rules, but is expecting to take a big financial hit. Certainly going to have some significant problems of the next few years, but that's something we have to face and that's something clubs will and we'll move on. In two years time no smoking at all will be allowed inside pubs and clubs but doctors say there's no need to wait and a total ban should be introduced immediately. I think the longer we wait, the more risks and the more lives we put at stake. And these protesters agree. The AMA also wants a ban on the display of cigarettes and other tobacco products in all shops - an idea first raised 17 months ago. The less they see them then, hopefully, Nina Stevens, National Nine News. In Iraq, the man preparing to take the job as the Egyptian ambassador has been kidnapped on a Baghdad street after stopping his car to buy a newspaper.
