Hamas and Fatah gunmen have been exchanging fire on the streets for days, but now Hamas appears set to seize control of Gaza. SHOUTING AND GUNSHOTS Hamas today celebrated what to them feels like an Islamic revolution.

Their fighters now have control of virtually every important security compound in Gaza. One gunman, clutching the Koran in his hand, thanked God for their victory. Down below, others prayed. And then they picked through the spoils of war. The Palestinian security forces, run by Fatah,

were clearly no match for Hamas. The battle for Gaza is not yet over but Hamas is well organised and determined. Today, on Hamas television, they paraded Fatah prisoners.

Fatah is supported by America, amongst others.

To Hamas, these men are traitors. GUNSHOTS

As Gaza appeared to fall to Hamas, We filmed as one group ransacked a Hamas parliamentary office in Nablus. What seems to be happening here in Nablus at the moment is that Fatah-affiliated gunmen are going from one Hamas office to another, taking control,

burning and looting. In less than one week, the Palestinian nation has been cleaved in two. The white and black chequered headscarves of Fatah, control the West Bank. In Gaza, it is the Islamists of Hamas who are now running things. They raised their flags across Gaza today. They call this a liberation.

The Palestinian President called it a military coup. Tonight, as the President imposed a state of emergency, Hamas showed off some of the weapons and equipment they've just seized. The last few days have strengthened Hamas intends to do with its power. The next few days will show what

A candid interview has been released with Princes William and Harry, their mother and her legacy the brothers talking about ahead of the charity concert they're planning to mark the 10th anniversary of Princess Diana's death. Nice to meet you, William. Your dog is so cute! I know, she's very sweet. No titles, no stuffiness, just, "Hello" from the princes, a reminder of the informality their mother, Diana,

And it's that easy charm, that charisma, the princes want to celebrate. After 10 years, there's been a sort of rumbling of people bringing up the bad

and over time people seem to forget or have forgotten about all the amazing things she did, what an amazing person she was and we sort of felt that this was the best way of bringing that back to life

and letting people remember all the good things about her because she's not here to defend herself when she gets criticised and so we want to do that instead and this is the best way of us getting that across to people. The concert will be a hugely public event but for William and Harry it will also be a time to remember the private to Diana - not the Princess, but the mother. She was wonderful and sadly there is no amount of words that either Harry or I could tell you now that would actually portray that. You'd have to meet her to really understand it and you ask people who've met her and they'll tell you just how amazing she was. And, for us, we were so lucky to have her as our mother. And there's not a day that goes past that we don't think about her and miss her influence because she was a massive example to both of us

and it's one of those things that's very sad but you learn to deal with it and there's plenty of other people out there who have got the same or worse problems that we've had. The nicest thing - the fact that she was our mother - she had her public side and then she had her private side and the private side was very small in comparison to the public side, obviously, but the memories that we've got of her, I think we're very lucky to have those memories because they're so private between us.

And that's the nicest thing about it - is you see her get slated for such-and-such but the personal memories we have of her are very much private

and that's the way, hopefully, they'll always be. Like their mother, both William and Harry have immersed themselves in charity.

Her work with AIDS patients, for example, helped to break the taboo around the disease. She did everything because she felt it was right and it was what she wanted to do. She didn't go by what she thought was the best thing to do or be told to do something. She did it from her heart and fully immersed herself into it

and she cared, she cared massively. We've been left in no doubt at all that we were the most important thing in her life and then after that it was everyone else. It was all her charities and everything like that. And for me that is a really good philosophy that she just loved caring for people and she loved helping. She put everybody first and then herself very much last and she was the most caring person - she was our mother so we would say that, as I'm sure everybody else would say about their mother - but really caring, so sweet and very much missed by not only us but I think a lot of people and I think that is all that needs to be said, really. And then there was that other Diana, the one whose face adorned magazine front covers

and who seemed to to have a wonderful knack for just having fun. To celebrate her life with a concert with music and people just smiling and having fun, hopefully which is what they're going to be doing, wave their arms in the air like they just don't care. I was about to do the second bit. I don't think there is any better way to celebrate her life. Jailed celebrity Paris Hilton has a new place to call home, although it's still behind bars. Hilton has been moved from a correctional treatment facility in Los Angeles to the main women's prison. It's the same place she was jailed when she began her sentence for breaching probation on drink-driving offence. However, she's been placed in a medical ward amid ongoing concerns about her psychological state. Her condition will be monitored, so her condition is stable. The 26-year-old may eventually be moved into a regular cell. Residents in a southern US state are being told to hitch up their pants or face a $350 fine and even jail. The council of small town in Louisiana has passed an anti-sag law, banning pants that show underwear or private parts. The baggy and low pants are popular among young men but the law applies to men and women.

The local mayor has denied the rule is racially motivated. Is your home insured for the right amount? Next, we find out what you need to know to financially safeguard yourself against disaster. Stay with us.

A 2-year-old boy is dead and his 10-month-old brother is fighting for life after an horrific car crash on the Gold Coast.

It's alleged the children's father, who was driving at the time, fled the scene of the crash. He later presented himself to Gold Coast Hospital, where he was interviewed by police. The Government has been cleared of any wrongdoing

in the cash-for-canapes affair. But Labor now wants the Prime Minister to explain whether taxpayers footed the bill for two other Liberal fundraisers held at his Sydney residence. And a candid interview has been released with Princes William and Harry, the brothers talking about their mother and her legacy ahead of the charity concert they're planning to mark the 10th anniversary of Princess Diana's death. In another cruel blow for NSW flood victims, many could start to find they've underinsured their homes and will be left with next to nothing. of insurance claims have been lodged. More than $270 million worth But to find out how big a problem this really is, Anne-Marie Esler from financial advisors Centric Wealth

joins me now. Good morning, Anne-Marie. Good morning, Natarsha. This is really going to hurt those people up in the Hunter region who've lost everything and will soon find out they'll only get a little bit back.

There is probably up to 25 % of

Australians who are not insured at

home for their home and contents,

let alone some of those people in

the Hunter region he may have under-insured their properties,

which means they have not fully

insured them for the full cost of

replacing the damage that has been

caused. Statistically, how many

hunter residents could be under-

insured? It is hard to say at this

stage. We have to wait for the

claims to come in. Statistically a

lot of Australians - I do not know

the actual percentage - and under-

insured. When you have partially

damaged a house the and the

insurance company does not pay you

for the full amount. They pay you

for the proportion. If you have under-insured your house by 50 %

and you put in a claim for $100,000,

they will only pay you $50,000.

Under reinsuring, even though you

may save on your premiums, is a

very detrimental. How do you avoid

the problem? It is the replacement

cost. You should be sure your home

and contents for the full

replacement value. That can change

on a yearly basis. The need to make

sure the amount of coverage you

have kids up with the current cost

of replacing the house and contents.

We recommend you get a that you

were in to value your property, and

in some cases we have a mortgage,

the banks may do that for free, or

you can pay a small fee. It is

worthwhile to do that every five

years. Also keep in mind the contents insurance. People always

under insure the contents. A

general of some, we recommend that what every a property is worth, in

short the property for 30 % of that

value. The concern for many people

is they don't realise the devil is

in the detail, that when you put

your claiming you may not be

covered for things like storm

damage. You really need to check

the policy wording very carefully.

If he can, and speak to a general

insurance agent in regard to what

the best policy is for you and your circumstances. In finance news - US talk show queen Oprah Winfrey has topped a list of the world's most influential celebrities, with earnings of $310 million. Golfer Tiger Woods ranked second while Madonna came in third. In other news, the Australian share market is higher today. Now for a look at the national weather.

A couple of weeks ago, the Ten Network's '9am' program aired an inspirational story about a rock band formed by young Australians who all have disabilities. The lead singer of the band, Rudely Interrupted,

and we thought his story was worth retelling. HARMONICA PLAYS MAN SINGS: # Lay, lady, lay # Lay across my big brass bed #

the band, Rudely Interrupted. The band started from a grant we received from ANZ trustees at a place where I work. We decided to form a band called The Day of the School of Rock and from the grant we had to do a single, a film clip

and a live performance and it started out as just a great idea and it snowballed into what you saw previewed as to be an unreal band, one of the most heartfelt bands, a band that really moves people. I didn't know Rory could sing so well, I just knew he could play a bit of guitar and when it all came and he opened his mouth and we got him singing, he floored me. Rory, why don't you tell me a little bit about tonight and how you're feeling about it. Are you excited? Nervous? How are you feeling? Pumped. Pumped? I've got nothing but green lights. I feel like the only red light in the world is the red light on my guitar amp and also the red light on the camera which is rolling. SINGS: Why wait any longer for the one you love in front of you

# Lay, lady, lay # What is it that you love about music, about singing with the band? Being able to put my feelings - put music to my feelings. For example the song 'Don't Break My Heart' is dedicated to one of my teachers at my old school who sadly died of cancer. Where did the name Rudely Interrupted come from?

Well, because of Asperger's Syndrome, that can make my behaviour sometimes a little bit disrupted but also because when I lost Colleen, my teacher, that was a really rude interruption to my life. Well, the band, I reckon, would sort of fall apart if they lost me. # Can you really die from a broken heart? # You really don't die from a broken heart, it's true # Is it true? # I guess it's you who decides what I see in you # School of rock - what is School of Rock?

School of Rock is about people who have learning disabilities - autism or Asperger's or Down's syndrome - it's about expressing themselves musically. And there's a social interaction there too because people with Asperger's find it hard - they don't have empathy - Rory doesn't have too much empathy, do you, mate? And so they find it hard to relate to each other in social circumstances and what music does in a band situation is they're forced to think of other people and what they are hearing. How far are you hoping this band can go? I want it to continue - I'm hoping our songs end up getting a lot of radio play. Do you think they will? I sure hope so. Without this guy, dude here, Rohan Brooks - without this guy this band would probably be non-existent.

(All) Rudely Interrupted rocks! I'm hoping to become a father but I'm looking in all the wrong places. Now, is Mick a grandad yet? No, not yet. The cash-for-canapes scandal has dominated federal politics this week. Next, two of Parliament's rising stars go head to head on the issue - stay with us.

There were plenty of robust exchanges in Federal Parliament this week, with shots fired over a leaked union campaign strategy and a Liberal Party gathering held at Kirribilli House. Here to debate the political scorecard - Arts Minister Senator George Brandis, Human Services Tanya Plibersek. and Shadow Minister for Good morning to you both.

the gathering at Kirribilli House.

Not a number of other gatherings

are under the spotlight. Do you think

think John Howard will think twice

about having guests to Kirribilli House?

House? I do not see why he should

because it is where he lives. There

has been a lot of nonsense. The

rules are as plain as can be - the

official residences, and whoever is the prime minister of the day is

entitled to treat those residences

Australian people, and the Prime House and the large belong to the

Israeli people allow him to be

anyone objects to the Prime Minister having guests at his hand.

I think people object to the fact

that those guests are expected to

donate $8,000 to the Liberal Party

was not what they were paying for.

are in opposition. It was only

available to those observers who

had paid that money. It is not

available to people on the street

and you know that. It is special

treatment for people who paid the

They paid $8,000 to be observers at the Liberal Party Federal Council,

just as people paid $20,000 to be

commonplace and there is nothing national conference. It is

wrong with that. There is something

wrong with them being invited to

Kirribilli House. I do not think there is anything wrong with

business leaders being invited to the Prime Minister's private

residence. It is where he lives and

Business of the community, like

other citizens of the land are

entitled by the Prime Minister to have a conversation in Kirribilli

House. They should not be asked for

$8,000. They were paying to attend

a Liberal Party federal council at

a hotel in Sydney. The Prime Minister decide to have a cocktail

party on a Friday night to back

conference, and that is a matter

for him. The Government made the

most of a leaked ACT use strategy

this week out lining the pre-

election campaign. What is wrong

with the unions are targeting their

members? There is nothing wrong with people sending political

messages. You have to draw the line

at people intrusively invading

people's privacy by knocking on the

dot and haranguing them in their

own home to say you have to vote

for the Labor Party. Would you like

a Union boss to turn up uninvited

at your front door and start

haranguing you? Every election

campaign, people who want to be

elected to Parliament, go to on a king. The Israeli Conservation

Foundation, goodness knows how many

organisations, the Salvation Army,

there are dozens of organisations that

that go door-to-door to get their message out. There is nothing message out. There is nothing wrong

with unions trying to talk to their

members about work choices. Let me

finish. The government thinks it is

a case for big business to run

support of WorkChoices. It is fine expensive media campaigns in

for the Australian Chamber of

Commerce in industry, fine for the

big companies to back WorkChoices

with huge media campaigns, but if unions want to talk to their

members somehow that is terrible.

It is unreasonable. You are

misrepresenting the position. It is

fine for the unions to run an even more expensive media campaign.

People are accustomed to the

campaign of political messages campaign of political messages in

the media, but all your viewers

would know how annoying it is when

people turn up on your doorstep

uninvited, not on the door and

tried to sell you something.

Sometimes they are very hard to get

rid of. I would not like one of

those union bosses turning up on my

doorstep and refusing to go away

and haranguing me about the

election. They will be no her

raining. Is that a promised that no

Liberal candidate will go docking

in this Segel campaign? The union

bosses are not standing for

Parliament. This is not about union

bosses. This is about people who

are concerned about WorkChoices,

ordinary workers, going out and

talking to other union members

about their concerns. They have a

lot of concerns and people are very

keen to hear what this will mean

for them in the future. We have to

leave it there. Why is it part of a

professional operation that is

being worked through the dirty

tricks menu? That is nonsense. on the weekend's NRL and AFL. Ahead, the latest
