Few of those at Camp Smitty had ever met Private Jake Kovco but his death has hit home. Al-Muthanna province remains relatively calm. But they know that could change. Morale remains high. The Anzac spirit lives on. I think it's important to remember the operations we conduct are dangerous and extremely demanding.

From a Middle Eastern battle front to a hillside in the Pacific - Australian and New Zealand troops past and present have joined French allies in New Caledonia, a battle ground of World War II.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them. Similar ceremonies are being repeated by 2,500 Australians on active duty overseas. Fenn Kemp, Ten News. And Australia's first Iraq war casualty, Private Jake Kovco, has been remembered at an emotional Anzac service in his home town. The 25-year-old's wife, parents and two children

joined by the Victorian town's entire population of 400 to honour their fallen son. Private Kovco was killed last Friday in Baghdad when he accidentally shot himself with his handgun. His body is expected home on Thursday ahead of a full military funeral. Canberra's Anzac Day march has taken on special significance this year,

with the Australian War Memorial officially recognised as a national icon. Prime Minister John Howard has led tributes to our fallen, before announcing the shrine will be placed on the National Heritage List. Anzac Parade, leading up to the memorial, will also be listed, along with its many monuments to diggers past and present. In Melbourne, up to 35,000 rugged up for a morning of reflection. The eternal flame ringed by people

turning their thoughts to current conflicts, family members from wars past and friends long gone. In the march, some descendants carried photos of veterans, defying a recent ruling. Also taking part, East Timorese villagers credited with saving the lives of Australian soldiers during the Second World War. A beachside dawn service on the Gold Coast attracted more than 10,000 people and a high tide.

A sea of faces watched on as the ocean made a dramatic entrance at Currumbin Beach.

The incoming waves forcing veterans to put their feet up. A damp distraction from painful memories. But regardless of what nature threw at them, the crowd was determined to pay their respects. The threat of Cyclone Monica couldn't dampen the Anzac spirit in the Top End. Darwin's official dawn service and march were cancelled yesterday

because of public safety concerns. But as the sun rose this morning, a small group gathered at the city's cenotaph to honour the diggers. And a record turnout for the Anzac dawn service in Perth. Close to 40,000 people gathered at the State War Memorial. The big crowd witnessing a spectacular sunrise over the city. Young and old stood in silence as they paid homage to fallen warriors. Vietnam veterans were given the honour of leading the march. Despite a heavy downpour, tens of thousands of people lined the streets

in support of their servicemen and women. And in Adelaide, the number of veterans is dwindling, but record crowds still turned out for the dawn service. 10,000 braved the early morning chill and many more turned out at other ceremonies State-wide. For once, the skies remained clear. Almost 8,000 took part in the march, including hundreds of family members. Tim Webster joins us with a look at sport. And the Dragons and Roosters turn it on again.

Yes, it's becoming a familiar tale when these sides meet on Anzac Day. Today was no different - plenty of drama and incidents before St George Illawarra finally prevailed. We'll wrap up all the highlights in sport. Plus, some breaking news on the controversial Telstra stadium pitch.

Also, first pictures of Tiger Woods' risky weekend in New Zealand as he nails his longest drive. Also later, the AFL spending up big to grow their game in NSW. Australians wounded in a deadly resort bombing. That's next. And a wild night in the deep north as Cyclone Monica sweeps through. G'day, everyone. To my wonderful wife, I'm missing you heaps, Jennifer. I love you dearly. I'd like to say a big hello to my family back at home, my mum and also to my partner, Carrie, in Wagga. I'd just like to say what an honour it is to be over here in the Middle East serving Australia on this Anzac Day.

Two Australian women are among those injured in a triple bomb blast at an Egyptian resort which killed 23 people. Suicide bombers are being blamed for the terrorist attack, specifically targeting foreigners. At the time of the terrorist attack, these streets were filled with Egyptians and tourists enjoying their holiday. Just heard a really loud explosion and everyone went running. I was sitting in an Internet cafe and just when I went out, I heard the three explosions. Everyone was shouting. Egyptian air force are evacuating foreigners, including Australians, while police piece together what happened. The target, Dahab, is south-east of Cairo, near the Israeli border - so close that Israeli paramedics were first on the scene.

The town is a popular beach and diving destination for backpackers, and this is its peak tourist season. Dahab is still a beautiful place with beautiful people and I'm really sad about what's happened today.

Two Australian women - a 27-year-old from NSW and a 36-year-old from Victoria - are among the 150 injured. A third Australian is recovering from shock.

It's the third attack in the region in 18 months. I strongly condemn the killings that took place. The innocent lives lost in Egypt is a heinous act against innocent civilians. Terrorism doesn't respect national identity.

It doesn't respect religion, it doesn't respect national borders and it plainly doesn't respect human life.

Catherine Kennedy, Ten News.

Residents caught up in a marathon siege drama in Newcastle have accused police of making them prisoners in their own homes. Relatives of the accused gunman also attacking the officers' tactics. Police snipers in the suburbs - this the scene that confronted residents in Newcastle for the last two nights. A man allegedly barricaded himself in a friend's home with at least one gun following a domestic dispute on Sunday. MAN: Mate, I can give you a guarantee that police are not coming into the house. We were stuck there in the house. You felt like a prisoner yourself, you know?

40-year-old Scott Fear gave himself up this morning and has been charged with firearms offences. His cousin claims the police waited too long to end the stand-off. 30-odd hours they've left him in a house

where it could have been over in two hours if they'd just let us speak to the man. But the police point out the negotiation was successful - the siege ended without anyone being hurt. A difficult situation for your officers, with residents around - a major operation. It was a protracted operation, yes. Police collected bags of evidence, including a rifle, when they entered the home this morning.

As the siege dragged on, frightened neighbours began to run out of food and wondered when the stand-off would end and when police would leave their backyards. I was too scared to cook, because I didn't know if that bloke had done anything to the gas. Scott Fear will face Newcastle court tomorrow morning. It was very scary two days and two nights of not knowing what was going to go on and what was happening.

All you saw was cops and guns. Kevin Wilde, Ten News. Two NSW detectives are on their way to London to bring home Gordon Wood, the man suspected of killing model Caroline Byrne. Inspector Paul Jacob and Senior Constable Paul Quigg will apply to take 43-year-old Wood into custody and return him to Sydney to face a charge of murdering his former girlfriend. Ms Byrne's body was found at the base of The Gap at Watsons Bay 11 years ago. Wood, the former chauffeur of late businessman Rene Rivkin, denies killing the model. The detectives expect to bring him back later this week. Darwin has narrowly escaped the destructive powers of one of Australia's strongest storms. Tropical Cyclone Monica failed to hit the Top End capital with her expected fury, but she packed a punch on some outlying towns.

Cyclone Monica may have been one of the strongest storms to strike Australia, but not when she reached Darwin. She came ashore last night, inflicting damage on buildings in Maningrida and Jabiru, where one person died

but police say it was unrelated to the cyclone. It was a tense night in Darwin, where 700 sought refuge in cyclone shelters.

We know nothing about cyclones, so we prefer to come in the shelter and to be safe. They needn't have worried. By the time Monica's winds were felt in Darwin, she was a Category 2 and passing to the south. This is about as bad as Monica got in Darwin - some rain, winds gusting up to 60km/h, but no building damage and no injuries. The people of Darwin were grateful.

We were expecting a Category 4 cyclone, but it's gone away. Very happy. Some people were thinking, "Oh, we missed out." Hey mate, there's no such thing as a good cyclone. Authorities here reject suggestions they overreacted. It's one of those things where there was the threat. Luckily we escaped any direct threat from that cyclone. After plaguing Cape York last week and now sparing Darwin,

Cyclone Monica has finally broken down into a tropical low. But forecasters say she may re-intensify yet again as she returns to the sea. Max Futcher, Ten News.

The blast designed to kill soldiers attending an earlier explosion. During the day, seven car bombs went off across Baghdad. The attacks come as the trial of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein resumes. Prosecutors confident a verdict will be reached by August. Spectacular vision from the US of the destructive power of tornados. The Midwestern state of Oklahoma

was attacked by two twisters in quick succession. The power of the tornados evident on the ground. A local airport was unfortunate enough to stand in its path. The concrete and steel of the hangars no match for the ripping winds. OK, Mike. Roof's gone, roof's gone. Residents reported hail as large of golf balls. Fortunately, no-one was injured.

Six 12-year-old boys are behind bars tonight, charged with plotting to kill their classmates at an American school. The planned massacre allegedly payback for bullying. The North Pole Primary School remains under guard despite the arrests. There was a plan to bring guns and knives to school in order to shoot and kill both students and faculty. Parents were told the Year 7 boys had planned to disable the school's phone and power to give them time to carry out the attack.

It's a shock to know they are so young - 12 years old, The boys are now in jail, charged with conspiring to commit murder, while another nine of their classmates have been suspended for their alleged involvement. Their motives ranged from being picked on by other students to disliking staff members and other students.

The arrests come as five teenagers face court in Kansas over plans for a similar killing spree

to mark the seventh anniversary of the Columbine school massacre. It was scary knowing they might actually were going to do this. The teenagers, aged 15 to 18, were arrested after police found a threat on the Internet. They had the guns, ammunition and a hit list ready for the attack. In the US, Leisa Goddard-Roles, Ten News. A former neighbour becomes a big box office star in the US. That's coming up.

I'm currently in Baghdad having a great Anzac Day. Just like to wish all the boys at home all the best for Anzac Day. Make sure you get into a few rumbos for me. Cheers.

Today's major stories - a more solemn atmosphere than recent years as more than 7,000 people commemorated the Anzac legend at the place where it all began. Young Australians dominated the crowd at Gallipoli, gathering in quiet reflection of the sacrifices made by our diggers. While in Sydney, the absence of World War I veterans only seemed to swell the crowds, ever more youthful and still eager to pay their respects to the fallen.

More than 20,000 taking to the streets to say thanks to our soldiers. And a community mourns Private Jake Kovco, the latest Australian to lose his life in action. His wife and and children joined the Anzac service in Briagolong, Victoria, as the entire population of 400 honoured its fallen son. Private Kovco died last week in Iraq when his pistol discharged accidently. A unique Anzac Day dawn service on Sydney Harbour this morning. A group of schoolgirls from Pymble Ladies College were among more than 40 rowers who gathered under our biggest war memorial, Sydney's Anzac Bridge, for the regatta service.

They were joined by high school students from New Zealand to honour both nations.

The nine crews banding together for the special water tribute. It wouldn't be Anzac Day without that great after-march tradition - placing a bet on a game of two-up. It's the one time of the year street gambling is not only allowed, but considered a national sport. It's always an emotional reunion - the annual get-together for the lads from Air Force squadrons 454 and 459 who fought in North Africa and Europe in World War II. I wouldn't want to tell the public or anybody about what he got up to. But my contact was immaculate, impeccable

and all that ridiculosity. Sharing memories the name of the game. The main thing is, though, that we're all mates - especially when you have a crew of four in it, it's a very closely bonded group. And you never forget them. And the sad truth is their numbers are dwindling. 15 lost in just the last year. We're getting to the stage, unless we can have 10 ex-service members in the front rank, we no longer can march. But they vow the annual reunion will live on. As will the tradition of betting on the toss of a couple of coins. Thousands fronting up for a bout of two-up. Tell us about your T-shirt.

Well, I don't know - I just woke up this morning and thought I had to have something fitting for today, so I just, yeah, just pulled out my craft box and thought, "Yep, that'll do. Two-up definitely suits the day." Spinners who can't get the toss right down for 10. CROWD: Five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten.

But all this revelry does nothing to camouflage the real meaning of Anzac Day. Even with a beer in one hand and a fiver in the other, these punters definitely know what today is all about. It's great there's a lot of young people here and we're all sort of keeping the Anzac spirit alive. Just to thank those who fought for our freedom. Angela Bishop, Ten News. A call for more teenagers to take up cadets. The State Opposition wants funding to expand the scheme in public high schools to help improve discipline. Following in the footsteps of our nation's heroes -

school cadets have been around for a century,

but the 9,000 students involved today and selective schools. nearly all come from private

Now the State Opposition wants more cadets in the public system. It provides a sense of discipline, a sense of teamwork, self-reliance and self-confidence. It's a great start for many teenagers. He's calling for a 25% jump in cadet participation within three years.

The comradeship and fellowship they have there - cadets would be a great thing, yes. Discipline and respect. Even cadets were drilling home the message. There's a lot to be gained from it if you want to do it - I certainly have. The discipline it's taught me and the leadership skills, the initiative I've learned from it. At present, 40% of school cadets go on to serve in the Australian military. If more schools got involved, it could mean a big boost for our defence forces. But the Premier believes it's all one step behind his Government's plan for improving teenage discipline. Not only that, we have a much broader plan in our schools for instilling respect and responsibility, from the teaching of Australian values to the playing of the national anthem. These youngsters today showing the way. James Boyce, Ten News. Another Aussie has hit the big time in Hollywood. Former 'Neighbours' star Radha Mitchell's horror flick 'Silent Hill' topping the US box office. She's 32, Australian, and the star of the America's hottest film. The door's open but she's not out here. I can't find her. Honey! Melbourne's Radha Mitchell started out in shows like 'Neighbours'. Now she's the lead in 'Silent Hill'. It's the story of a young mum

who loses her daughter in a very scary small town. Sharon! Somebody, help! Based on a video game, the R-rated script nearly frightened Mitchell away from the role. I was by myself in my apartment and I put it down because I was too scared to keep reading.

Its director created such a disturbing world even the actors had trouble inhabiting it. He constantly disgusts us with his different visions and insinuations.

Really seriously, this is the strangest movie I've ever done.

Guided by Aussie 'Matrix' producer Andrew Mason, 'Silent Hill' tells two stories simultaneously - one of fantasy and one of reality. I think 'Silent Hill' is going to create an entirely new subgenre. It is horror, it is suspense, it's an adventure movie. While 'Silent Hill' has been widely panned by critics, it's a hit with American movie-goers.

This weekend it pushed 'Scary Movie 4' out of top position, raking in more than $27 million. And after critically acclaimed roles in 'Finding Neverland' and Woody Allen's 'Melinda and Melinda', this could be exactly what Radha Mitchell needs to catapult her to Hollywood star status. In the US, Rahni Sadler, Ten News. Tom Cruise says his real-life mission impossible

was leaving his infant daughter to go and promote his latest film. The star was in Rome for the world premiere of his latest blockbuster. But the new father's hardest stunt was saying goodbye to fiancee Katie Holmes and their newborn daughter, Suri.

I wasn't going to come and then Kate said, "Go, go. "You've got the whole cast and the world premiere here,"

So I'm here and I'll be here for a few hours, then I'm going to get back on an aeroplane and I'm going to go back home. His movie, 'Mission Impossible III', opens next month.

after an obstruction call denied the Roosters a shot at victory. The Anzac Day trophy flown in by a Black Hawk helicopter

for this traditional annual fixture. With the pre-game tributes complete, it was down to business. And the Dragons were in before the Roosters had even touched the ball. Six minutes later, same play, same result. COMMENTATOR: It comes to Barrett. Wes Naiqama once again!

The Roosters hit back through David Shillington, but the St George Illawarra continued to turn possession into points. Now a chance for Colin Best. Gasnier's there. Head's kicking game a headache for Roosters coach Ricky Stuart. His star recruit Braith Anasta was then levelled without the ball before he and Brett Finch, who've been criticised of late, put Amos Roberts through a gap. The half-time score 14-12 to the Dragons. And they cut the Dragons wide open. The visitors went ahead by 4 following this late tackle. And then came the turning point. With 15 minutes remaining, Solimana Sa appeared to have scored for the Roosters, but obstruction was ruled. On the very next set of six, the Dragons went the length of the field and, off the boot of Mathew Head, won the match. Gasnier was there. Made the pass.

Rob Canning, Ten News. There'll be plenty of fallout from this match, that's for sure. League reporter Adam Hawse joins us from Aussie Stadium. And the Dragons' win has come at a price?

Groundsmen today doing what they can to fix Telstra Stadium's playing arena. But more trouble brewing this weekend, with the Swans and Rabbitohs playing home games inside 24 hours. I think if there is a problem it's a very professional outfit out there. I think they'll fix it, or they won't let us play on it if the surface is no good. As a club, we need to make sure the surface is OK, and I think the AFL's in the process of sending someone up to have a look at the ground. Unstable turf a major headache for players nursing leg injuries. I guess guys who have groin injuries and knee problems, stuff like that, it's not going to be too good for them. But hopefully they will get that out of the way and get Telstra Stadium up to NRL standards. The dodgy surface unlikely to have Andrew Johns rushing to make a comeback from an ankle injury in Newcastle's clash with Souths on Sunday.

A selection - William Priddy will

replace Gower at halfback in

Friday's game against Cronulla. Thank you. A boost for the Socceroos, with injured stars Mark Schwarzer and Harry Kewell expected to be fully fit for the World Cup in June. Schwarzer has undergone surgery on a fractured cheekbone

suffered in Middlesbrough's FA Cup loss to West Ham yesterday and he could be back in training in two weeks. And we understand Kewell's groin strain is only minor, while Socceroos captain Mark Viduka is tipped to return from injury for Middlesbrough later this week.

Tim Cahill's knee injury is being monitored by Socceroos medical staff. Jim Richards will be the pace setter for this year's Targa Tasmania after taking out today's prologue through the streets of Georgetown. The Targa master outclassed the 245-strong field by over four seconds on a day when local knowledge proved more of a setback than an advantage. Tasmanian driver and last year's runner-up Greg Garwood smashed into a picket fence on his dash through town. Defending champ Jason White hurled his Lamborghini around the tight 4km course while Peter Brock made a solid start in his 2001 Daytona Coupe.

The 61-year-old is confident of a maiden Targa victory. Tiger Woods has been living dangerously in New Zealand on a trip that would send shivers up his bank manager's spine. The world's number one golfer making an extreme shift from driving golf balls to driving stock cars. His crash-and-bash debut behind the wheel earning the chequered flag. It's a little bit different and definitely more violent, and I think that's the fun part. If that wasn't enough, Woods took the dive of a lifetime, plunging more than 135m from the highest bungee jump in New Zealand. Tiger taming the 8.5 second freefall not once but twice. A brand of extreme training that's sure to reduce his heart rate on the greens. Later in Sports Tonight, a complete wrap-up of today's footy, and, on this Anzac Day, a look at the relationship between sport and war. Tim Bailey's next with the weather.

And an amazing illusion - the dresses that really are painted on.

Fears expressed by rugby league officials about the AFL's growth in NSW appear to be well founded. The AFL are prepared to outlay big scholarship dollars to attract this State's talented 15- to 17-year-olds, regardless of the sport they are playing now.

St Ignatius

College is a rugby

union stronghold, but this week,

it's turn under to an Aussie Rules

Mecca as recruiters from AFL clubs

across the country descend on

Sydney to pick the best young

talent NSW has to offer. Not that

they stop playing their own sports,

but to try AFL also. If they but to try AFL also. If they like

AFL over time, hopefully we can

develop them to the stage where

they might become the next Tadhg

Kennelly. In a bid to develop the

code in NSW, AFL clubs will be able

to pay as much as $20,000 to

players as young as 15 years of age.

The code is targeting elite

athletes like Zach and Jordon

Stenmark, who play State-level

basketball. Kids are aware of

opportunities. Their do see opportunities. Their do see these

elite athletes earn good money.

Even at an early age, kids are

aware. We don't want to push that

side at this stage. They're obls

aware and think it's valuable.

Under the scholarship program, each

AFL club must select one player to

develop, but can take two if they

desire. Do you think you'll go for

two? We've got no doubt. I'd take

six if I could. Swans midfielder

six if I could. Swans midfielder Paul Williams was in attendance and

will return for Saturday night's

match against Geelong at Telstra

Stadium. In Melbourne, the Anzac

Day match between Essendon and

Collingwood has provided another

thriller, the Magpies winning by 17

points. For most people, stuck

behind jail bars would be chilling.

For Tim baily, it's like the end of any

any other weekend, I guess. Indeed

-- in deed, rani! It's the

second-biggest tourist attraction

after the Western Plains Zoo. We go

out there tomorrow to name the baby

white rhino. Who loves Dubbo? (All)

We love Dubbo. Tomorrow, we are

going to... (All) Name the white rhino.

rhino. Who loves Dubbo? All are we

love Dubbo. Who loves Ron Wilson?

(All) Who the bloody hell is Ron

Wilson? Love your work. The short

list, ladies and gentlemen, for the

white rhino tomorrow at western

plain zooz. He comes on the

television and we give him a name,

cris 247 little fello. Tiny cris 247 little fello. Tiny Tim -

Pam and Jeff sent us that one.

Round of applause. APPLAUSE Someone

wants to call him Obbud. That's

Dubbo spelled backwards. Round of

applause. Hamsa is African for

'strong'. That comes from Elliott

Carr in Bathurst. Keep the round of

applause going! Mambosa applause going! Mambosa is another

option, and Ky, which, in an

African language, means 'white'. So

tomorrow, we... (All) Name the

white rhino. Indeed. Live at the

zoo. It will be fantastic. Thank

you to all the people at the Old

Dubbo Jail for letting me out of

the cells. It has been an

experience in Dubbo for 72 hours.

Weatherwise, Anzac do was a bit grey.

grey. The sky leaked, but it's

about what's under your left tit,

really. Being Australian, we had a

great day out there. Weatherwise,

showers - more of them on the way

tomorrow. Two below today - more of

that behaviour as well. You'll have

to tackle the office for the first

time in a long while. I've got a

feeling that a few of you took the

last four days off! Congratulations

on getting away with it!

Satellite - cloud over the tropics

is circulating around former

cyclone Monica, bringing heavy rain and showers

and showers and squally storms. The

map tomorrow - former cyclon Monica

will head further west and cause

heavy rain and squally winds over

the NT. A front will bring cold,

showry winds and a few storms to

southern WA. Onshore winds will

bring showers to the NSW and

Queensland coasts. Predicted

precipitation - drips and drops

NSW coast, mainly the neither.

Showorns the central Queensland coast. Heavy coast. Heavy rain and storms over

little bit. Who loves Dubbo? (All)

We love Dubbo! Got to do this one

one more time. Who loves Ron

Wilson? (All) Who the bloody hell

is Ron Wilson? Dubbo. There's something

something about the place that I'm

falling in love with!

This is the Old Dubbo Jail. It is a

must-see. A must-visit when you

come out to the zoo. Put this on

the agenda as well. Hope you had a

great Anzac Day. See you tomorrow night. A cheeky start to this year's Australian Fashion Week. A barely-there body painting exhibition kicking off proceedings. Cosmetics brand MAC painted 14 naked models in classic Chinese dress using its makeup products. It's not the first time the bold designs have been shown off - the exhibition has also toured parts of the United States and Thailand.

That'll keep the diggers watching! That's the news at 5:00. I'm Ron Wilson. And I'm Deborah Knight. Thanks for your company. Ten's Late News and Sports Tonight is our next bulletin at 10:35. Goodnight.
