back. But whether Australian holidaymakers can regain the back. But whether Australian holidaymakers can regain the trust

and come back to Bali

holidaymakers can regain the trust and come back to Bali remains to be seen. A dozen injured Australians are already in Darwin, five of them are critical. The trauma team at the Royal Darwin Hospital comparing the injuries to treating war wounds. Doctors are also preparing for another 40 patients to arrive this afternoon. It's out of Bali and into Darwin to the relief of the victims. A middle-aged Aussie couple with serious injuries first to arrive.

Another seven ferried to Darwin Base Hospital overnight. Some of their wounds horrific. They are very consistent with a war injury. The type you might expect in a war situation or indeed an industrial explosion. It's almost three years since the first Bali bombing claimed more than 200 lives. The Darwin surgical teams involved then are better prepared now because they know what they're up against.

Extensive injuries from what has been quite a horrendous bomb blast involving ball bearings, glass, metal pieces, nails and so on. This because the backpack bombs were smaller. There were nowhere near as many burns victims. But two Australians with serious burns were quickly airlifted to Singapore. Also there, a 50-year-old Aussie with worrying head injuries caused by shrapnel from one of the blasts.

Darwin Hospital staff agonising over the lives they couldn't save.

To do it deliberately is a horrendous event and intolerable event

and how such evil can be actually perpetrated is beyond me.

Harry Potter, Ten News. A teary reunion for many Australian families greeting loved ones at Sydney airport this morning. Three planes touched down, two of them specially chartered mercy flights

packed with tourists cutting short their holidays. The fear of terrorism replaced by the relief of being home.

How's it feel here today? Pretty good pretty, damn good. It's great to be here, great to be here. Three planes touched down in Sydney this morning, bringing with them hundreds of Australian tourists fleeing Bali.

Teary eyed family waited to greet them along with Federal police officers who interviewed those closest to the blasts. We were 20m away from it. Glass went out on the road. I just grabbed my girlfriend's hand and ran. We could smell all the gunpowder and all the smoke and that was really thick, and it was prety scary at the time.

Many of these people arrived

courtesy of two specially chartered Qantas flights, sent into Denpasar airport last night. It's very organised - a lot of security - and I was expecting a lot worse. Qantas dispatched a third aircraft to Denpasar this morning. It returns to Sydney tonight, and depending on the situation, may be the last mercy flight on offer. Its expected to be filled with more Australians

willing to cut short their holidays with safety the number one priority. I just wanna get to my kids. They just want me here. But despite two major bombings in Bali in less than three years, many say they will return. Yeah, I'll go back. Good waves - I'll go back for sure. Dan Nolan, Ten News. Tourists returning to Brisbane from Bali claim there were warnings of possible terror attacks

Despite the blasts, the majority of tourists say they would holiday again in Bali. On Friday they said, "Don't go out "because there's going to be bombings on Friday, Saturday night". We were like, "Yeah, whatever, whatever. and it ended up happening. We were warned there was going to be an attack, well, there was a high threat, but no security was stepped up at all.

The mother of the West Australian teenager killed in the blasts is on her way to Singapore to join the rest of her family. Lisa Fitzgerald will fly out later today to be with her daughter and former husband both being treated for burns. As more tourists arrived in Perth overnight, stories emerged of a warning leading up to the bombings. A guy in our hotel spoke to the bouncer

and he was warned not to go out Friday or Saturday night but I was only told on the Saturday morning. One of the bouncers at Paddy's said he's not working on Friday and Saturday because he thought there might be a terror attack. Australian Federal Police were also at Perth airport interviewing witnesses and taking clothes from those close to the bomb site. The Federal Police took my clothes 'cause we hadn't taken them off since then,

we haven't slept much, they're going to do forensic testing on them. Nathan Luies was only metres away from the blast. There was a massive bang. Smoke everywhere. Saw a few people go flying, motorbikes everywhere. Glass going everywhere, people started screaming. Pretty scary 'cause we were supposed to go to that restaurant that night then one of our friends said, "No, let's go to a different one".

So went to a different one. Family members were overcome with relief at having loved ones home. Very concerned when you can't get through for five hours it's pretty scary. I'm so happy that he said he was alright.

Some won't be returning. 16-year-old Brendan Fitzgerald one of the confirmed victims.

He was a lovely boy. He was a very special kid.

A very nice, loving, intelligent kid. He loved life. Matt Moran, Ten News. The big question being asked today is what warning did we have that an attack was about to take place? Ten's political editor Paul Bongiorno joins me now. Paul, what sort of travel advice had been issued?

Well, there's no doubt there

Still to come in Ten's morning news - the Federal Government under pressure to slash taxes and cut the cost of fuel by 10 cents a litre. A holiday tragedy in the United States. 21 people are dead after their tour boat capsized on a New York lake. Plus, wild celebrations in Sydney - Wests Tigers fans and players are still partying

after their victory in the NRL Grand Final.

to tackle your project in the Bunnings Warehouse spring catalogue.

30-litre potting mix, only $5.98. only $14.94. just $9.87. are just the beginning.

This program is captioned live. A tragic cruise boat accident in America. 21 elderly people drowned after their boat overturned on a busy lake. The accident happened so quickly

few of the frail and elderly passengers had time

to grab life-jackets. Plenty of life jackets - the bright orange ones - in the water, just no people in them 27 people were rescued, including the captain, but 21 died,

all members of a senior citizens tour group from Canada. We were pulling the elderly out of the boat. There were, like, tons of them and they were all frantic. We were just trying to throw life jackets and get as many people on our boat as we could. It's believed the 12m cruise boat sank after being swamped by the wake of a larger vessel. One guy, as I was taking him off, said,

"That was my wife, they just took my wife.

"I know she is dead."

Divers are now searching the submerged hull of the 'Ethan Allen' hoping they wont find any more victims. In the United States, Leisa Goddard-Roles, Ten News.

Claims today the Government could cut the cost of fuel without breaking the budget. Family First Senator Steve Fielding says a 10 cent cut to the fuel excise would hardly make a dent in the surplus.

Cutting excise by 10 cents a litre is roughly about $3.8 billion.

That will give tax relief to Australian families and businesses. The Prime Minister insists changes to the excise

would trigger major cutbacks in Government spending. The party's still well and truly in full swing for this year's kings of rugby league - the Wests Tigers.

The players and their fans soaking up the premiership glory.

The celebrations are soon to get

The joint venture club beating fellow outsider North Queensland by 30 points to 16. Setting off long awaited celebrations for fans of the old foundation clubs, the Balmain Tigers and the western suburbs Magpies. A footy fairytale closes with a golden chapter,

a story that few thought possible at the start of the season - the Wests Tigers 150/1 longshots to win the title, even the players stunned by their achievement You know what - it's just an unbelievable feeling. The Tigers conceded the first try of the match to the North Queensland Cowboys.

But the game's momentum turned when Tigers' captain Scott Prince put up a high ball that became a low point for the Cowboys - a terrible in-goal mistake. The Cowboys veteran centre Paul Bowman shattered by his pass to no-one. Yeah, I just shouldn't have done it, mate. I just really feel that I let everyone down. It's gonna be hard to look the boys

It's gonna be hard to look the boys in the eye, actually. Then the try that saw the stadium erupt, Tigers whiz kid Benji Marshall setting sail from deep in his own half.

COMMENTATOR: Pat Richards has scored a magnificent try, Marshall sending Richards on his way with an extravagant flick pass at high speed. I just saw a gap and ran. All of a sudden I saw it - I dunno.

The bloke's a freak and he deserves every accolade he's got. The Tigers went to half time leading 12-6, soon after their lead blowing out to 12. Cowboys captain Travis Norton putting the Cowboys back in contention, but when Clive Churchill medallist Scott Prince set up his winger, the game was all but gone.

The joint-venture Tigers the first team in 95 years to win a premiership in their first finals appearance, the Cowboys gutted. It's hard to describe. It just feels like we're at a funeral. It's that bad, you know? Leanne West, Ten News.

after a rain-affected round of the championship in Italy. It wasn't such a memorable day for Italian rider Lorenzo Lanzi who was catapulted from his bike in the first race of the day. Japan's Yukio Kagayama also coming to grief. Aussie Chris Vermuellen won the race from Corser, who sealed the world championship when the second race was cancelled due to heavy rain.
