A group of four robbers began their raids at the Ibis hotel in Darling Harbour. They hassled a receptionist for cash, threatening to use the stun gun, but left empty-handed.

And the protests in Burma have prompted the US President on the country. to impose harsh sanctions Speaking to the United Nations General Assembly, George W. Bush wants financial restrictions placed on the military regime. We will enforce a visa ban on those responsible for the violations of human rights, as well as their family members. I urge the United Nations, and all nations, to use their diplomatic and economic leverage to help the Burmese people reclaim their freedom.

The Australian Government has warned the Burmese military against using force to end the protests. Now to our weekly report from the United States with Ten's US bureau chief Nicole Strahan. Nicole, Iran's controversial President has addressed world leaders at the United Nations. Good morning, Natarsha. A day after Iran's President declared there are no homosexuals in his country,

he's made another controversial speech. This time to the United Nations General Assembly. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's presence at the UN attracted fiery protests. of world leaders Outside the gathering thousands directed their protests at one man. (All chant) We want justice! We want peace! Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stands accused of aiding terrorists,

pursuing nuclear weapons and helping insurgents who are killing US troops in Iraq. MAN: The President of the United States of America...

But inside the General Assembly President Bush didn't want to draw any more attention to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Mr Bush's address only mentioned Iran in passing. Instead he focused on a broader fight for freedom from poverty, tyranny and violence. The people of Lebanon, Afghanistan and Iraq have asked for our help and every civilised nation has a responsibility to stand with them. President Bush also announced new US sanctions on the south-eastern Asian country of Myanmar where the military regime is cracking down on anti-government protests. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was spotted checking his watch during Bush's speech. at the same time Despite being in the same place

these two leaders never crossed paths. During a part of the Iranian President's speech

entitled 'the Arms Race' he referred to a shadow of threat looming over the world, but insisted that his nation's nuclear programs have always been transparent. Our country is recognised as one with the capacity for for peaceful purposes. Behind the scenes the US is pushing for new Security Council sanctions against Iran. asserting that its uranium enrichment is part of a nuclear weapons program. And during that speech by the US President, a reference also to the future of Cuba and its leader Fidel Castro. Mr Bush declared the long rule of a cruel dictator is near its end. wasn't impressed, and walked out. The UN must insist on free speech, and ultimately, free and competitive elections. The Cubans issued a statement of the arrogant and mediocre statement by President Bush.

The Halo series is one of the most successful video game franchises ever created and Microsoft is hoping it will boost the entertainment arm of its business. Halo 3 embodies our vision for the future of entertainment. Xbox sales are likely to improve too because it's the only console

Halo 3 sales are expected to exceed sales for the latest 'Harry Potter' book. Not among those in line, TV actor Kiefer Sutherland. Instead he's joined the list of celebrities in trouble with the law. Sutherland has been arrested on suspicion of drink driving in western Los Angeles.

The 40-year-old was pulled over

when police caught him making an illegal u-turn. The Emmy Award-winning actor posted $28,000 bail and is due back in court on October 16. Sutherland was already on probation for another drink-driving offence, which means if he's convicted this time around he could spend time behind bars.

Drought-stricken farmers are welcoming the Federal Government's $714 million survival package, to help them get through the worst drought in living memory. But there are concerns many struggling property owners won't take up the offer to leave the land, preferring to tough it out.

A possible breakthrough in the hunt for Madeleine McCann - Interpol are examining a photo of a child that could be the missing British girl. A Spanish tourist took the photo in Morocco three weeks ago. on the back of an elderly north African woman. Burma's military rulers have imposed a dusk-till-dawn curfew

to try to end mass protests. But the demonstrators, led by Buddhist monks, are refusing to back down, as armed soldiers move onto the streets. Protests on this scale are a rare sight in Burma. During the last uprising in 1988, the military killed up to 3,000 people. The Burmese military seized power in 1962. A committee of 12 senior generals controls the state, Opposition has been brutally suppressed. Imprisonment and torture are common place. For decades the regime has kept the lid on a seething popular dissent. The pro-democracy opposition has been down this road before. a series of street protests In August 1988 students began calling for the restoration of democracy. A year before the Tianeman Square protests in neighbouring China, the Burmese military did not hesitate.

Their crackdown was swift and ferocious,

thousands of protestors were killed. The regime conceded multi-party elections in 1990, but when the pro-democracy opposition won more than 80% of the seats, the regime annulled the results, and placed its leader under house arrest. Hundreds more were jailed.

It is perhaps more dangerous for the military rulers, that these protests are led not by students, but by the country's Buddhist monks. of Burmese society, They are the most revered sector like the Catholic church in communist Poland, a quiet, patient, peaceful rebuke to military brutality. And the chance of an alternative Burma. And the protesters know that Burma's neighbours have their own stake in the country's destiny. India may be the world's largest democracy, but it depend upon gas supplies from Burma to fuel its growing economy. In return, India agrees to say nothing critical, to exert no pressure for change. China, though, is the closest Burma has to an ally. But the China that is preparing to hold next year's Olympics is quite different to the old China that condoned the 1998 crackdown.

Beijing does not want another Tianamen Squre in its neighbourhood. It may well exert a restraining hand on Burma's generals. But the generals have never seemed susceptible to outside pressure. They've managed to stay in power before the protesters know that they are walking a dangerous path.

In finance news, the Australian share market has opened lower today. The big dry is now claiming another victim -

cheap wine. The days of those $2 or $3 bargain bottles are numbered, with the advice - stock up now! For close to four years now those who enjoy wine have also enjoyed good prices, but that affair, like most things, has to end. The groceries, fruit and vegies will be going up too, we're being squeezed on all fronts at the moment.

Not as much as wine growers though, the industry has gone from an over-supply, to a shortage, in just 12 months. That means prices like these will be relegated to the history books. The two dollar bottle of wine, which you saw in the marketplace last year, will not happen again. The drought is forecast to reduce the 2008 grape crop by half. Growers will now start to hold on to what stock they have, to get a better price. Those guys have been doing it tough, and it's going to be a very tough year for them as well. Don't expect prices to go up straight away though, there is still cheaper surplus stock available. It will be around six months before the big bargains totally dry up. Retailers aren't worried though, they claim the extremely low prices have made wine more appealing, and expanded the industry's customer base. Josh Murphy, Ten News.

That brings you up to date with all the news. Stay with Ten for updates throughout the day and the full details in Ten's news hour tonight. We'll leave you with some pictures of a different side of football - NRL and AFL stars getting their gear off for breast cancer research, posing for a raunchy new calendar. I'm Natarsha Belling. Good morning. Supertext Captions by the Australian Caption Centre.
