Its penalty - a $178,000 fine. It's a complete kick in the guts. It's pathetic. Multimillion-dollar company Australand admitted responsibility for Joel's death. He fell 15m from a roof he was working on, unharnessed, just three days into his new apprenticeship.

We're dealing here with a big builder with enormous assets and resources that had the capacity to make sure the workplace was safe. With the changes to unfair dismissal laws, the union claims more and more apprentices, young workers like Joel Exner, will be too afraid to speak up when assigned to unsafe tasks. It wants company directors made accountable. The day the CEOs of big companies are held responsible is the day they'll pay more attention to safety. And Sue Baxter wants the one thing she can't have... The only thing I want back is Joel. That's all and nobody can give me that.

Danielle Isdale, Ten News. As we go to air, lawyers are back in a Brisbane court arguing over the detention of terror suspect Dr Mohamed Haneef. Locked up for more than a week, the Gold Coast-based doctor is linked to the failed UK terror attacks. Federal Police have to convince a magistrate to give them more time to question Haneef, but even his lawyer is unaware what evidence they have against him. Well, from my point of view it's unfair on my client but there's another side to the story that hasn't been told yet. This afternoon, Haneef was allowed to speak to his wife on the phone, but there are moves to evict him from his Gold Coast home because he hasn't been able to pay his rent. The coroner has lost her patience with another of the men of interest in the Dianne Brimble cruise ship inquest. Luigi Vitale claims he's forgotten almost the entire holiday, but the coroner doesn't believe a word of it. before his trip on the 'Pacific Sky'. In fact, he'd never been out of Australia before. on his memory, But it's had so little impact it's almost as though it never happened. Must have been a fairly memorable event, a woman dying. The Adelaide man went on the trip with seven travel companions, three of whom were his friends. He returned a person of interest in a suspected homicide. But he claims to only remember the time he spent his cabin feeling ill with seasickness. And that's where he was the night Dianne Brimble died. Vitale told the court he can't even recall the name of the island where he and friends disembarked three days later.

But his memory lapses wouldn't wash with the coroner. She pointed out that the court had a copy of his expense account while on board, showing frequent trips to nightclubs and bars for alcohol, daily sessions at the gym and snacks of pizza and ice-cream. And this from a man who: By lunchtime, the coroner had lost her patience with the witness

and abruptly adjourned the case. She urged Vitale's lawyer to speak with his client because she would no longer tolerate his poor memory claims. A police video played to the court showed Vitale's lawyer expressing concern about potential charges relating to knowledge of a crime. But even after watching it, Vitale claimed not to remember participating in the interview. In the end, the coroner adjourned his evidence with a warning: The court will now focus on processing 500 bugged phone conversations between the eight men before resuming their questioning.

in the collapse of investment company Bridgecorp. Many of the victims confirming in other investment firms.

It's becoming an all too familiar sight - Australian investors attending a creditors' meeting to find out what happened to their money. The company name may change, but the story stays the same. This time it's Bridgecorp but many here have been bitten before. I did $50,000 in Fincorp. My daughter did $50,000 in Fincorp too. And I did $70,000 with Bridgecorp. Like this investor, many lost money with Fincorp, Westpoint and ACR.

I'm only a 2-time loser.

What do you mean, 2-time? I had some money with Fincorp too. Between them, 1,000 or so Australians are owed around $24 million. It's a terrible situation we find ourselves in and I'm sure we're probably better off than a lot of people. that's for sure. I'd like to get my money back, out for these investors Those who were meant to be watching have been remarkably silent since this latest collapse. The corporate regulator, ASIC, again declining our requests for an interview and refusing to explain how it let this happen yet again. I don't think they're regulating these companies enough, all these finance companies. They're very neglectful. This is the fourth company that's gone broke. Bridgecorp is essentially a New Zealand company, investors there lost $500 million.

The administrators of the Australian arm now looking at the assets left behind - heavily mortgaged properties. They will get some money back but the extent to which they get money back, I can't estimate. Little comfort but no surprise for these latest victims.

Eddy Meyer, Ten News. Disturbing revelations tonight dozens of deaths and illnesses have been caused by hospital blunders. of cover-up and fatigue for many of the medical mistakes. It's a surprise no patient ever wants to receive. A 17cm pair of surgical scissors were left inside Pat Skinner during a routine operation. A new report into medical blunders it's not a one-off incident, has found to report if something goes wrong. with many staff still too reluctant

One advocacy group believes The Medical Error Action Group receives 70 calls a day from families desperate for answers. The stories I get from families are horrific. I don't see any changes to the culture, it's still one of secrecy, it's not one of safety. There's lots of talking about things - they're frightened they're going to be identified.

It'll have to be a statement released by my lawyer later. It is hugely prejudicial. I'm dreadfully concerned that it is going to affect the fair procedure of a trial for Michael and for Simon. Both Michael and Simon vehemently deny any wrongdoing and are going to defend the charges that they face. former team-mate Simon Black, St Kilda star Fraser Gehrig and former Saint Stephen Lawrence are facing assault charges over the clash, along with two other hotel patrons. We're all ruled by the law of the land and we have faith in our legal system that the correct judgments will be made.

in a shocking plane crash in America. Three of the victims were killed into their homes, when the aircraft slammed sparking a huge fire. In the moments after the crash of the Cessna 310 there was panic among those on the ground as two houses were engulfed in flames and reduced to charred ruins. 911 OPERATOR: I want everyone to get away from that house! WOMAN: OK. It's two houses! It's two houses? Get away from the houses!

The light plane had just taken off when the pilot raised the alarm as the cockpit filled with smoke. He'd been cleared to make an emergency landing when the plane clipped a tree and crashed into two homes. I heard people screaming and I saw the fire and I said, "What happened?", and I thought it was a fire but you never think it was a plane. Killed in the plane were the pilot and a plastic surgeon, well known in the nearby NASCAR racing community. They're shocked. They're upset. They are handling it very well, for the circumstances. Found dead in the houses - a mother and her 6-month-old son in one and a 4-year-old girl in the other. Her 10-year-old brother survived but suffered third-degree burns to up to 90% his body. His parents also survived. Neighbours are devastated at the tragedy. They don't deserve to lose Gabby. That's their baby. REPORTER: Tell me about Gabby. She's a really sweet, little girl, full of life. Firefighters managed to stop the flames spreading to nearby houses. The plane's manufacturer has been called in to help with investigations into the cause. In the US, Nicole Strahan, Ten News. The death toll from a week-long siege at a mosque in Pakistan has passed 60. Soldiers are in a tense stand-off with radical militants who've barricaded themselves inside. Loud explosions were heard a short time ago

as commandos worked to free as many as 300 people who are apparently being held hostage. The military stormed the mosque yesterday, the initial raid killing at least 40 militants and the mosque's cleric. Eight Pakistani soldiers also died. A runaway wrecking ball has caused havoc on the main street of an American town.

It was being used to knock down a library on top of a hill when the cable snapped, sending the 700kg projectile hurtling down the street. It's very strange when you see this huge ball coming down the street at you. The ball travelled more than 1km, finally coming to rest in the boot of a car.

Bush is pleading for more time before troops are withdrawn from Iraq. Our Opposition warning Australia could be left behind with no exit strategy. The weekend devastation of a truck bomb in the Iraqi town of Armili, which left more than 100 dead, is a foretaste of a report due in Washington on Thursday. It will detail the lack of progress in the strife-torn country. Desperately trying to get ahead of its release, the President is urging patience. I welcome a good, honest debate about the consequences of failure the consequences of success in this war. The Democrat majority in Congress has lost patience.

All I know is we will draw down significantly Republican senator John McCain was in Iraq last week. He saw little progress but is backing the President's call for more time. I know that senators are tired of this war, tired of the mounting death toll. A new poll in America shows by next April, 71% want all troops out of Iraq except for a small number involved in counter-terrorism. Labor says it's time for an Australian exit strategy. The debate about a staged and phased withdrawal in the US has well and truly begun. The Australian Government is pledging to stay the course, though Foreign Minister Downer today ruled out doing more to help the American surge.
