death in the middle of Sydney death in the middle of Sydney

Airport. The victim is believed to

be linked to the Hells Angels bikie

ensued. The fight moved through

various parts of the terminal to various parts of the terminal to

the ultimate location where the man

was... deceased. Four men have been

charged with affray and refused

bail. They'll face court tomorrow.

Early News - Sydney's bikie war

takes a deadly turn - a gang brawl

with one man bashed to death in the

middle of the domestic airport.

More bad news for the economy - the

PM warning it's now virtually

impossible for us to avoid a recession.

And no rest for the wicked in

getting down to business after her

historic win at the weekend.

The NSW State Government will

consider outlawing bikie gangs in

the wake of yesterday's violence at

Sydney Airport. One man died

during a brawl involving a large

group of bikies in front of horrified passengers.

In the early afternoon inside the

Qantas domestic terminal, 15 men

beat a 28-year-old Hells Angel

bikie to death. The brutality

witnessed by hundreds, including

airport security. I saw the other

guys pick up the poles, the barrier

poles. While the guy was on the

ground getting beaten, they beat

him across the head. Four men were

arrested at the scene. They'll

front court this morning. It would

appear a group of males have exited

a plane. They were met by another

group of males, who we believe may

be Hells Angel Motorcycle Gang

members. A fight ensueed. It's

linked to a feud between the Hells

Angels and the Comancheros

following the bombing of the

Angels' Petersham clubhouse in

February. The brawl came only hours February. The brawl came only hours

after a street fight between bikie

clubs the Bandidose And Notorious -

up to 30 bullets sprayed in a

street in Auburn. How long did it

last? A good five minutes. The NSW

Premier is holding emergency talks

with police this morning. It's likely legislation will be

fast-tracked outlawing bikie gangs.

The Prime Minister has admitted

that, despite the stimulus packages, infrastructure spending and

home-buying incentives, a recession

is now looking more and more likely.

Mr Rudd admitted as much without

actually uttering that 'R' word.

The impact of a worsening global

economic recession will make it

virtually impossible for Australia

to sustain a positive economic

growth. The PM has also warned the

May Budget will be a tough one.

Mr Rudd will leave for Washington

this morning at the top of the

agenda - the Afghan war. The PM

says he'll consider any request

from the Americans to send more of

our troops. Mr Rudd will meet

President Barack Obama tomorrow

with both men agreeing the

international coalition is not

winning the war. Yeah, that's right

let's just be blunt about it - I

think people need to just be

up-front about the reality. Mr Rudd

will also use meetings in the US to

address the problem of toxic debt

in the banking system holding up

the flow of credit.

Queensland's Premier was flying

high after the weekend's historic

win. That pile there - that's more

bad? She wasted no time to fix the

state's problematic health system,

giving the portfolio to her deputy,

Paul Lucas. The Deputy Premier has

stepped up to the mark today and

chaik taken on one of our biggest

challenges. I'll certainly be

asking the same of other ministers.

There have been a number of issues

that clearly have not been good

enough. The issue in terms of the

nurses' accommodation - clearly not

good enough. The only other MP

guarantee administry is the

Treasurer, Andrew Fraser. Secret

meetings have already begun. What's

the meeting about today? What

meeting? Current and former Labor

leaders have praised the

48-year-old on becoming the first

elected female Premier. A gutsy

performance from a gutsy leader,

Anna Bligh. She did it all on her

own and she deserved 10 out of 10

for it. I'm very proud of her. The

new-look Cabinet will be sworn in

by Thursday.

Disgraced former Federal Court

judge Marcus Einfeld says he's not

dishonest. The 70-year-old began a

2-year term in jail for perjury

over the weekend. He was convicted

for lying about who was driving

when his car was clocked speeding.

He says he's not dishonest, but

merely made a mistake.

apology to the club as he was

the king crumbled. I'm sincerely sorry for all the pain I've caused over the past years

to so many people in so many ways. I have let down

my family, my team-mates, closest friends, supporters, this great club that's given me so much, and of course myself. Based solely on playing achievements, Carey's admission into the Kangaroos' Hall of Fame was a given. In recent years, though, he's made headlines for off-field battles with alcohol, drugs and anger management. I may have been successful as a footballer, but nonetheless I have been a failure as an emotionally mature man. Carey thanked his ex-wife, Sally, and their 3-year-old daughter, Ella, before paying special tribute to his older brother, Dick. My family's been a great support, but none bigger than my brother, who's here tonight. (APPLAUSE) Nathan Templeton, Ten News.

Wayne Carey has made a very public

apology to the club as he was

inducted into the North Melbourne

Hall of Fame. As a footballer, Wayne Carey possessed seemingly unshakeable confidence. But faced with a speech in front of the club he left in disgrace, the king crumbled.

I'm sincerely sorry for all the pain I've caused over the past years to so many people in so many ways. I have let down my family, my team-mates, closest friends, supporters, this great club that's given me so much, and of course myself. Based solely on playing achievements, Hall of Fame was a given. Carey's admission into the Kangaroos' he's made headlines In recent years, though, drugs and anger management. for off-field battles with alcohol, as a footballer, I may have been successful I have been a failure but nonetheless as an emotionally mature man. and their 3-year-old daughter, Ella, Carey thanked his ex-wife, Sally, to his older brother, Dick. before paying special tribute My family's been a great support, who's here tonight. but none bigger than my brother, (APPLAUSE) Nathan Templeton, Ten News.

Denan Kemp landed the conversion

the Roostvers tkhauked up their

first victory of the season -

Roosters have chalked up their

first victory of the season for

Frank, beating them 28-4. We didn't

even see the try! Liverpool has

jumped above Chelsea to be second

on the English Premier League

ladder, following a resounding win

over Aston Villa. The Reds were on

the scoreboard after just seven

minutes, when Dirk Kuyt cleaned up

a Steven Gerrard free kick. Their

second was hand-delivered by goalkeeper Pepe Reina. A brilliant finish!

First-time volley from a

goalkeeper's clearance! Outstanding

goal! Skipper Steven Gerrard stole

the show from there, scoring the show from there, scoring a

hat-trick on the way to securing a

5-0 victory. The Hoe Reds one point

behind leaders Manchester United.

The Australian share market is

expected to open lower today, with

investors awaiting details of the

US Government's latest effort to

stimulate that economy. With the

details is Juliette Saly from

CommSec. The American market is up CommSec. The American market is up

12% in the past two week - that's a

good sign. It certainly is a good

sign, Frank. Wall Street has posted

its best winning streak in 10

months over the past fortnight. We

did see stocks on Friday ease, and

that was due to profit-taking and

the expiry of the futures contract.

We saw banks and tech stocks drag -

they've been the ones running up

the hardest over the past couple of

weeks. The Bank of America down by

about 11% on the Dow. The Dow

itself lost 122 points, or 1.7%, on

Friday. The tech-heavy Nasdaq down

2%. Over the course of the week,

Wall Street put on between 1%-2%.

There definitely should be renewed

confidence, with US Treasury

secretary Timothy Geithner expected

to announce that plan to buy up bad

debts from the gang banks as early

as today. Where are we headed

today? It does unfortunately look

like we will have a fairly unims

prestive start to the trading week.

Not too much on the economic front

this week, either, although we will

hear from Reserve Bank Governor

Glenn Stevens on Wednesday - he's delivering a speech in Melbourne.

Today, weakness in gold, copper and

oil prices will weigh on our market,

as will the the weaker financial

stock from offshore. The futures

pointing a drop of 1.6%. Thank you.

That's all in finance. Let's hope

it's not too bad today. Confidence

in the stock market should also be

boosted by that Roosters win on the
