Please, why don't you understand? with the school, is there? The leader is Imam Fouad Chami. Well, if the council approves, we'll go ahead. If they don't, we can do nothing. The imam said his group had no money of its own to build the school and would rely on government grants. Like a grant from the government, free of interest - they help you to build and, as you build, they will help you, and then you will pay it back. The Quranic Society plans to get around the shortage of funds to begin with by building just two classrooms as enrolments grow. and adding another room each year Imam Chami has also admitted being a member of the secretive Muslim group Tablighi Jamaat but denies the group was linked to al-Qaeda.

We were never close to them because we don't deal in these type of things. We don't deal in army business, in guerilla business. This is all nonsense. We were never close to them, never. We're concerned about who these people are. We haven't seen them before and they haven't come to Camden to meet the community. Imam Chami said if the project folded the land would be sold. John Hill, Ten News. A grieving father is vowing to make Sydney Harbour a safer place, as he prepares to mark the anniversary of his daughter's death. Morgan Innes was killed when a ferry slammed into a motor cruiser. Tomorrow marks a year since Robert Innes lost his daughter Morgan, a champion ice-skater. He says her death won't be in vain. I've sat fairly quietly for 12 months. My daughter was killed - I can't change that. But, at the end of the day, I will do whatever I have to do

to make the changes to make sure your children, on the harbour. An investigation found the cruiser 'Merinda' didn't have its navigation lights on when it was cut in two by the ferry 'Pam Burridge'. Today maritime authorities conceded the HarbourCat was speeding and on the wrong side of the harbour. The issue of culpability or further action is not closed. of the four people who died

will again mourn their loved ones tomorrow. little has changed. Revelations in the report suggest out of 19 ferry courses recorded on one day after the accident,

17 were found to be on the wrong side of the harbour. The Opposition says Government inaction has made the harbour unsafe. Among those changes, Mr Innes is urging passengers to dob in ferry masters who flout the rules.

Frank Coletta, Ten News. on his first major overseas trip as Prime Minister. The global economy is set to dominate talks with world leaders for putting off important local decisions until his return. 17 days, three continents - Kevin Rudd farewells Australia to rub shoulders with the world's most powerful. His objective simple. To argue Australia's economic case in a number of the principal economic capitals of the world and to prepare Australia for the global uncertainties. The first stop is Washington, where he'll meet US President George W. Bush and see a nation in financial freefall. The most important thing, I think, is for the two leaders to establish a good personal relationship. He'll also meet United Nations chief Ban Ki-moon, attend a NATO summit in Bucharest and visit the Queen and PM Gordon Brown in London before travelling to China. But his itinerary has drawn criticism.

For Mr Rudd to be away for 17 days whilst the Budget is being prepared is something that is a little concerning. Cabinet meetings have also been abandoned until Kevin Rudd's return,

reinforcing the perception of a government reluctant to operate without its leader

and a leader reluctant to hand over control. When he last travelled overseas, his government was hamstrung would have their bonuses cut. over reports carers and pensioners It took four days for Mr Rudd to return and quell concerns. His deputy Julia Gillard denies there's a problem. If was need to have a Cabinet meeting outside the scheduled meeting times, then, of course, as acting Prime Minister I could convene a Cabinet meeting.

Tim Webster with a look at sport,

and swim star Libby Trickett was in tears at the Olympic trials last night. Yes, but her husband has denied claims his wife cried because he'd missed out on a spot at the Olympics. He says Libby was overjoyed because he'd swum faster than ever before. It was the moment their personal and professional lives collided. COMMENTATOR: It is a tough time - one of the most harrowing meets you can go through. Luke Trickett had just missed a spot on the team for Beijing.

Libby is known for her amplified emotions, I guess. She wasn't upset, she was overwhelmingly happy. They were tears of joy, apparently because Luke had just swum a personal best time, his fastest swim since they met six years ago. He'd been trying to improve on that ever since. Last night he finally did. Just because she wins Olympic golds and breaks world records

and I just stand up in the Olympic trials final, it doesn't make it any less significant for her. But the catch is Libby was just about to swim herself in the semifinals of the 100m freestyle. Minutes later the world champion was beaten by a 15-year-old schoolgirl. Now, following last night's outburst,

some have even suggested Libby would be better off not watching her husband swim when their races are so close together but, as Luke says, good luck stopping her. She said the only way she wouldn't watch my race is if she was dead. a pretty easy person to impress, isn't it? LAUGHTER Luke is now likely to retire from the sport. Paul Cochrane, Ten News. And we'll pose the question - has rugby league's image taken a battering, along with a few players, from shoulder charges?

It comes as Braith Anasta gets ready to back up

after surgery to his smashed nose following a shoulder charge gone wrong last weekend. Also a dramatic escape for the Socceroos in China, how Schwarzer saved the day again. And we'll see who's ringing the bell at Bells Beach. Ahead, a court win for broadcaster Alan Jones. Plus, the last locally made Mitsubishis roll off the line. And the boys go in to battle - just who are the biggest tough guys at the Royal Easter Show?

You have a good day. WOMAN: Right from the very first taste of our new stronger, smoother, 100% arabica bean coffee blend, you'll notice a change at McCafe. So come into McCafe and try the delicious new blend yourself.

This program is captioned live. The end of an era for Australia's car industry. The last locally made Mitsubishi has rolled off the assembly line - loyal workers now walking out the factory gates for the last time. It was an emotional day for staff at Mitsubishi.

The last 12 380s to be made - and the last Australian-built Mitsubishi ever - have come off the assembly line. The final 380 will be auctioned among dealers, the money going to charity. The price could be six figures. The workers who built it say that's a bargain. I mean, this being the best car that we've ever made, I reckon. The final moment

brought mixed feeling for workers who've remained loyal. Oh, it was excellent just to get that final car off the line and for everyone to see what good-quality vehicles that we actually do build here. Most of the final batch go to dealers but cars were donated to the Flying Doctors, Vision Australia and the National Motor Museum. It will be very important to us to be able to tell the story of not only the Tonsley Park right through the Chrysler era 930 workers will lose their jobs. Many employers across Australia have expressed interest in hiring, but few have yet accepted. The workers are saying they don't want to go to Queensland, Western Australia. They've established themselves here, they got houses, they've got kids going to school.

Even though the last 380 is already off the line, Mitsubishi workers still have to clock on for one more day.

At least it'll be a short shift, with most expected to knock off before midday. A win for broadcaster Alan Jones - he's been spared a criminal conviction, despite naming a juvenile murder witness on air. A judge ruled the 2GB talk host had not acted dishonestly when he paraphrased details of the case from the 'Daily Telegraph'. He found the comments did not add to the damage

already caused by the publication. The judge ruled a conviction would have far-reaching ramifications for Jones, significantly restricting his travel.

He confirmed a finding of guilt, but upheld the appeal. Nursing scholarships will be doubled under a scheme aimed at retaining experienced hospital staff. The university scholarships are worth $8,000 each and can be used by any nurse at any facility across New South Wales. 200 places were promised last election, but the scheme's popularity has forced the Government to double the number to 400. I think that the retention will be good. We will retain more nurses if we can encourage programs like this. The scholarships allow nurses to study and improve their skills without having to leave the profession. at Sydney's Royal Easter. The tough guys are sweating it out Men from around the country are putting their strength and skills to the test. Don't come between this couple and their sport. Woodchoppers Dale and Amanda Beams sure know how to wield an axe. If you've got any fear out there it's a waste of time. Back home in Tassie I have to compete against the men as pretty much my only competition.

But then there's nine-time tree-felling world champion

69-year-old Bill Youd. While most 2-year-olds have Tonka trucks for toys, he had a tomahawk. Not to be outdone, our best shearers handle 200 sheep weighing around 70 kilograms a day. That's almost 1.5 tonnes a day. A shearer working flat out in one 2-hour run will expel as much energy as a marathon runner. Then there's the fearless precision drivers. Doing these tricks takes precision and timing. Competing for the daredevil crown is the freestyle motocross team while self-titled couple Dangerman and Dangerwoman show no fear of heights. But driver Dave Shannon plays down his expertise in such an adrenaline-driven sport.

It's just practice really. We're very tame. But there's nothing tame about balancing a ute on two wheels. Now, that was fun,

but it takes years for drivers to develop their skills to take such calculated risks because, one wrong move, and who knows what could've happened? But perhaps those with the toughest gig at the show are the mums and dads who've lasted the day with the kids. Catherine Kennedy, Ten News. Also at the show today, celebrity couple Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban. at the food pavilion They were enjoying the treats and soaking up the atmosphere - obviously a rehearshal before they bring their little one to the show. Nicole is now five months pregnant.

art gallery staff stumble on a work potentially worth millions. And France's first lady gets pulses racing in Britain.

Art gallery staff have struck gold, stumbling on a new treasure in an old masterpiece. Owned by the National Gallery of Victoria for half a century, 'The Finding of Moses' was thought to be the work of 18th century Italian artist Sebastiano Ricci.

But after cleaning a small section, a hidden treasure may have been unearthed. Exciting, yeah, it's good fun. Removing decades of dirt in areas, conservators saw similarities with the work of the Venetian master Giovanni Battista Tiepolo and now believe it could be his. When we bring pictures into the studio and we start doing the cleaning and restoration of them, it's always an unearthing process and they're more often treasures than not. If it is a Tiepolo, its value will increase by many, many millions, but that's secondary for the restorers. We're excited by what we see just in terms of the painting itself, but what we will learn eventually about who painted the picture will always be exciting, no matter if it's by Tiepolo or someone else. For the next 12 months, conservators will continue to restore and examine the artwork. International experts will then be invited to comment. But it could take several years before the true identity of the artist is confirmed. Either way, 'The Finding of Moses' will eventually return to its original hanging place, coincidentally, beside Tiepolo's masterpiece

'The Banquet of Cleopatra'. Mignon Stewart, Ten News. The French President's first visit to Britain has been rocked by controversy. The UK tabloids have been plastered with photos of his wife in the nude. President Nicolas Sarkozy touched down with a new first lady and a new fondness for the United Kingdom.

France's 'King of Bling' greeted by the Queen of England. But elegantly dressed in an understated grey coatdress, it was his new wife, supermodel turned singer Carla Bruni, who stole the show.

The space shuttle 'Endeavour' has landed safely back on earth - the crew of seven making a rare night-time touchdown at Cape Canaveral, in Florida.

The landing had been delayed earlier due to low clouds over the Kennedy Space Center. 'Endeavour' spent a record 12 days at the International Space Station - its crew conducting five spacewalks. There's new evidence humans might have been in Europe long before previously thought. Western Europe's oldest human remains have been unearthed in northern Spain.

The jawbone and teeth are believed to be 1.2 million years old, almost 500,000 years older than the previous oldest known remains.

Their small size suggests they belonged to a female. Scientists have also found stone tools and animal bones with cut marks believed to have been made by humans.

The fastest Australian final ever with all the attention and expectation on lane four. Eamon Sullivan finishing a fingernail short of his goal. COMMENTATOR: But Sullivan! The rocket from Western Australia, he wins it in a time of 47.52, 0.02sec outside the world record! I thought shaving my face would have helped a bit more, but no, I won't grow my fingernails, I'll probably put a hole in my suit if I do that. (Laughs) But with the swimming world improving in leaps and bounds, Sullivan knows this was a chance gone begging. There are just so many guys out there capable of swimming that fast and it only takes one or two swimmers to start doing that for everyone to sit back and realise it's not impossible and, yeah, it's just going to be a landslide from now on.

I wouldn't agree there. No, I don't. I don't think the shoulder charge as such is a particular problem in the game. Hodgson, still to be cleared for Sunday's clash with the Bulldogs, insists the controversial tackle should be made a thing of the past.

I hope people don't think I'm saying it just because I'm the one who got tackled either. Look what happened to Anasta on the weekend. His nose is spread across his face. Braith Anasta's redecorator, Karmichael Hunt, exonerated by the judiciary last night for a shoulder charge gone wrong. The Rooster resuming training today with a remodelled beak.

Have you spoken to Wayne Bennett at all about any discussions that might have gone on with the club? this week Been working very hard on Canberra because they're going to be a very hard game. Parramatta Eels coach Michael Hagan says the final decision on whether Nathan Hindmarsh plays against Newcastle tomorrow night will be left entirely with the back-rower. Hindmarsh missed the Eels final training session with his family following the death of his dad. He's very keen to play tomorrow night but it would be a difficult period for him to go through. Takes a fair bit out of you and I'm sure the boys will rally around him tomorrow night if he does decide to play. Hindmarsh says his father's wishes were for him to play. Ewen McKenzie is confident his Waratahs can silence the critics and relieve a little pressure tomorrow night with a win over the Cheetahs at the SFS. McKenzie's job has been under increasing scrutiny as the Tahs struggle to ignite any excitement,

covered in Tim Tam chocolate. It's one crush that's sure to end in love. # She's got a crush... #

Or Tim and reckons we all going

davit toothy grin on our faces after the weather forecast. You know

know why the big fella has the big

green? He has the forecast a few

minutes to go. I include Friday my

weekend forecast because I know you

love them as much as I do. Fine and

sunny tomorrow and Round About 22

degrees. 23 on Saturday and maybe

25 and the greater West on Sunday

and hardly a cloud in the sky till

about Tuesday. It will be 28

degrees by midweek next week. No

wonder we all grinning. Let's get

into your backyard right now.

Jetstream cloud across the North is

causing rain in Western Australia

and patchy rain and storms

elsewhere. Rain clouds across the

eastern states degenerating

possibly Severe storms. A high will bring a cold morning and a mostly

sunny day to the south-east in land

and clear showers from Victoria and

Tasmania. A front will maintain and

gusty winds in south-west Western

Australia and a trough will cause

further storms over Western Queensland and the Northern tropics.

Predicted precipitation - showers

in New South Wales will be in the

north-east and the far southern

Rangers. Find everyone else. Showers and storms in Queensland

and across the tropics. Late showers in Tasmania and Victoria.

Saturday and Sunday - not a worry. We all grinning and ready for Friday tomorrow. That's Ten News for now. I'm Ron Wilson. And I'm Deborah Knight. Thanks for your company. Stay with us here on Ten.
