Todd Nardy, Sky News news. The man who murdered well renowned heart surgeon Victor Chang is back in Malaysia, Chiew Seng Liew was released after the Government said it would not appeal a decision ordering the parole of the Malaysian nation. Chiew Seng Liew arrived in Malaysia a free man, his deportation back to his native country follows a long legal battle in the NSW supreme court. With the state government fighting to keep the man convicted of killing renowned heart surgeon Victor Chang behind bars. However the challenge was over ruled. On Friday 69 year-old was handed over to immigration authorities. By removing Chiew Seng Liew from the jurisdiction of Australia what has effectively been done is the supervision which would normally be conducted during parole cannot occur. Closely guarded by from the media he was whisked to Kuala Lumpur, his family eagerly awaited his return home. Thank you Australia, I love Australia. But for the Chang family the ruling is a distressing end to what has already been a painful ordeal. They are absolutely devastated by this decision. We have trialed everything we possibly can to act not only on behalf of the Chang family but the entire community. We have tried our best. That's all we can do. Mother than 400 Australian soldiers from the 7th battalion RAR have been farewelled in a parade at the Edinburgh base in SA, set to be deployed to Afghanistan soon and the first Australian task force to be sent in as advisors to the Afghan army rather than mentors. It comes as part of the transition of governance in the country. Lieutenant General David Morrison says that Australia's mission in Afghanistan will save and change lives.I'd ask you not to focus on some negative and misinformed comments that are currently in the media, to the effect that your work is not as relevant as it should be. Not in the national interest, nor vital to the security of your families and this nation, nothing could be further from the truth.The seven-month mission is the first large scale deployment of Australian based soldiers to Afghanistan. Labor appears to be backing off in the so-called gender wars off a torrid week in federal parliament, Penny Wong says the Foreign Minister should be able to call sexism when she sees it. A cease fire in the gender wars, Labor this week was accused of failing its own test when Wayne Swan spoke at a union function after a crude joke was held told about the opposition leader's female Chief of staff. We see some evidence that perhaps Labor is pulling back a little in its attack on sexism as it sees it in the opposition. Take a look. Nobody wants a gender war as you coin it. Let's not get into this situation where you're suggesting to me that unless I or any other woman, women that you know, speak out every single time we hear something we think is inappropriate that we are some how not feminists we don't stand up for women's rights you and I both know every day we have to make decisionb what we say, what we criticise and what we don't speak out on. The new speaker Anna Burke has given several int interviews in the past 24 hours where she now says that Tony Abbott does provide her with the appropriate respect in the speaker's chair. That's a softening of her position of a few months ago. She's also been accused of by Yass by the Manager of Opposition Business Christopher Pyne after she gave an interview yesterday where she said the Prime Minister's speech last week was spot on. Now she says she does take issue with some of the things in Julia Gillard's speech. Christopher Pyne said she had to not only be impartial but to be seen to be impartial. David Lipson, Sky News, Canberra.In the meantime the opposition is demanding further explanation from the Prime Minister over her time at law firm Slater and Gordon. She voechd for the legitimacy of a trade union association which was em Baz ld by her former boyfriend Chris Wilson. Miss Gill regard described it later is a slush fund. Ms Gillard still has many yes, sir to answer about her role in the establishment of the workplace reform association. The Prime Minister recently said that she only provided limited professional advice about establishing the association. A shot has been fired at president Barack Obama's campaign office in the US state of Colorado, shattering a window. No injuries, but people were inside the building at the time. Splis a description of a car they're looking for. The President is currently in Washington in the throws of his presidential campaign and preparing for another debate which will take place in New York. In the meantime a spokesmen for the Obama administration has vigorously defended comments made by Joe Biden over the attack in the US Embassy in Libya, during the Heated debate with Republican Paul Ryan he said we weren't told about requests for extra security in the days leading up to the attack. The vice president was speaking about himself and the President and the White House, weighs not referring to the administration, clearly since there was a public hearing for four and a half hours where it was discussed openly by individuals working at the state department requests that were made. White House spokesmen Jay Carney said there's no reason the vice president would have been briefed on diplomatic security requests because those staffing levels are determined by the state department. Good morning everyone...At the state department secretary Clinton did not dispute Mr Biden's intention that initial intelligence about the attack led to the administration's early inaccuracies. There is much we don't know, I'm the first to say that. but as someone who has been at the centre of this tragedy from the beginning I do know this: there is nobody in the administration, motivated by anything other than trying to understand what happened. United States is facing an attack threat equivalent to September 11 an attack that would be carried out by computer, that was the stark warning by the defence secretary describing a cyber Pearl Harbour saying that attackers could takeover computers that travelled transport systems. A cyber attack againstSanco has been traced to attackers in Iran. The defence secretary warns potential enemies including Iran are developing the capability to launch devastating attacks. The collective result of these kinds of attacks could be a cyber pearl harbour.An attack that would cause physical destruction and the loss of life.An attack that would par lies and shock the nation and create a new profound sense of vulnerability.Iran does not have that kind of capability yet, but US officials say several recent cyber attacks have been trace today hackers inside Iran. He stopped short of blaming Iran but in a speech described the cyber attack against Eranco that happened two months ago. More than 30000 computers it infected were rendered useless having to be replaced. The vier yus called Shmoon did not disrupt oil pro ducks, it struck against the second largest producer of liquid national gas. The Shamoon virus was the most destructive attack the private sector has seen today. These attacks mark a significant escalation of the cyberthreat. They could be in retaliation for cyber attacks against Iran's nuclear program, also recent attacks on the websites of American financial institution s the Bank of America and JP Morgan Chase could be a way of fighting back against sanks, they overwhelm the sights with emails. This could be a minor disruption that would happen if in this test of the industrial turbine hackers over over the control of critical infrastructure.

The space shuttle endeavour has embarked on its final journey but the streets of Los Angeles, after 25 trips into space it's now heading into retirement. Just before midnight Los Angles got a glimth of the space shut, five storeys tall, 78 foot winning span moving through dense city streets. It was a dramatic entrance fit for Hollywood. It gave me goose bumps. I had no idea how the community would be coming together. It's just so special. It has been a remarkable journey for the endeavour from outer space to inner city. This might not be its riskiest mission but possibly its more complicated. It's 12-Nile trek at two miles an hour goes over freeways, down bowl vardz, through neighbourhoods, almost 400 trees were cut down to make way, 2700 metal plates laid down to strength theed road ways, stop lights were removed.

This is not the biggest thing you have ever moved. Definitely not. Nobody has ever moved anything more significant. Endeavour should reach its new home at the science centre Saturday night. This is news now on Sky News, time for the sport with Sam. A big upset in the Caulfield Guineas. All ice were on Piero. The winning streak of Gai Waterhouse's champion colt Piero has come to an end after a shock defeat. He was the odds on favourite chasing a win, he ran out of stream on the run home. All too hard the half brother of Black Caviar hanging on for a Victory. Piero, they had to deploy the whip, all too hard has his chance, Piero has to fight, all too hard has grabbed him and won it. Earlier Waterhouse's star mare more joyous failed to fail missing out on a place in the toor rack handicap. More joyous took the lead, sult tan, out wide, into the front, sult tan and toor rack by a head. followed by more joyous too much early with the big weightmentIn the Caulfield stakes there was no stopping ocean park as Glen Boss claimed yet another Group One. He's digging in strongly, Alcopop is closing. The Kiwi responds, he gets home, ocean park by half a length, Alcopop or sincereo. The marketing dream becomes reality today when 35000 fans flock to Allianz Stadium acid knee FC clash with Alessandro Del Piero and Hesky facing off. The Wanderers are still chasing an ee Lewis sieve goal and Victory after falling to the Reds 1-0 in Adelaide. The Wanderers coach Tony Popovic was looking for more from his team. S shzinji Ono wasted no time trying to get a sight on goal. It didn't take long after Adelaide this their chance to open the scoring. Beautiful first touch, it would have been a special goal!The best chance from the half would come from the A-League's new boy. Combining with Poljak, he tries his luck. Both teams continue to waste their opportunities. Here goes Jeronimo Neumann. The failure to hit the score board left them frustrated. It was Adelaide who started the second half with all the running. No touch from the Portuguese star standing up, a chance!It now appears a matter of when not if the home side would hit the back of the net. Penalty given. I only saw it on the screen to be honest. It looked like to me it started outside. Nuemann, saved!Took less than five minutes for Jeronimo to redeem himself. He's a fan favourite!It would be the aem goal of the match enough to seal the second straight Victory for Adelaide United. We were rusty, but we played well, we weren't fluent. The second half we started to come good. If we keep creating chances getting in the right areas I'm confident that will turn. We will get our goals that the team deserves. Kangaroos captain Cameron Smith is playing down his bid to cap off an amazing personal year at rugby league ahead of tonight's test with New Zealand in Townsville. Chasing a rare triple crown captaining a victorious team, notching a test Victory in a single season. I've had a pretty Goodyear, been able to captain first of all the country Anzac Test Victory, Queensland to another series win, obviously finishing with a premiership was nice. Only follow Queenslanders Alan Langer and Darren Lockyer have achieved the feat. Australia and New Zealand have made successful starts to the Gold Coast sevens campaign, the Aussies too good for Tonga winning 31 to 14. Two on two, out it goes to Ed Jenkins. McMahon is through, Shaun Mack Karen from the GPS club in Brisbane. New Zealand had a tougher time against the United States eventually whiching 19 to 7. The cycling world governing body will hand down the vefrkt an Lance Armstrong's doping allegations later in the month. It is assessing the report from the US ante doping agency, which outlines Armstrong's use of performance drugs. It has always worked within the rules, with good rules in place we can catch cheats, we have caught cheats. People can beat the system not the UTI system it's the world ante doping agency that puts the system in place, any sports persons can beat the system, you know the system isn't strong enough. If the tur deFrance Chief says if Armstrong is stripped of his seven titles there will be no replacement winner from 1999 to 2005. Townsville and Perth will clash tomorrow afternoon to wrap up the second round of the NBL, the Hawks downed the taipans, the breakers beat Adelaide and the Kings point guard core rin Henri scored points to tame the Tigers. The new-look side was keen for a which. The Tigers the team attack served them well early on. Real good ball movement by the Sydney kings. They were caught short in defence, the Tigers managed to snatch a two-point lead on the cusp of quarter time. Firing in the second with smart shooting, he briefly gave the home side the lead. The Tigers were not about to let them out of reach. Were soon back on top. Braswell, talk about James Harvey finding the hot hand. The home side was in trouble trailing by eight in the main break, Sydney fought back in the third as Darnel Lesair and core rin Henri took it up a notch. The steel, Henri, up against the score, the Corin Henri show!Two points in it heading into the final quarter the home side managed to outshoot their opponents in the fourth and stretch the lead out to eight. Again the Tigers came back over hauling Sydney with seconds to play. Lesair remained cool under pressure sealing a narrow win for the Kings. All right that's all from me in sport for now.

Sky News.More than 400 Australian soldiers from the 7th bat al an RAR have been farewelled with a parade at the Edinburgh base in SA as they prepare to be deployed to Afghanistan, Sky News's Adelaide reporter Ashleigh steel has the details. ? 450 soldiers of the seventh bat al tonne RAR have been farewelled at the Edinburgh base today. The first large scale deployment of South Australian based soldiers to Afghanistan, it's in fact the largest state deployment since World War II. It's also the first task group to be September as advisors, rather than mentors. That's of course part of the handing over of governance and security to the Afghan national army. Now the troops here have been in intense training since the start of the year, for many it will be their first international deployment. A lot of family and friends gathered hered it to farewell their loved once. It was a rare opportunity to see so many Adelaide-based soldiers in a parade at one time. Chief of Army Lieutenant General David Morrison addressed the soldiers, assuring them their mission will save and change lives. I'd ask you not to focus on some negative and misinformed comments that are currently in the media to the effect that your work is not as relevant as it should be, not in the national interest, nor vital to the skufrt of your families and this nation, nothing could be further from the truth.The task group will be led by Lieutenant Colonel Malcolm Wells who in fact has recently moved from a mission in Kabul. He said there is a good morale amongst the soldiers, they're well prepared for the challenging seven month task ahead.

The incident is currently being investigated. A shot has been fired at president Barack Obama's campaign office in the United States, shattering a window in the officen Colorado. There are no reports of injuries, people were inside the building at the time. The President is currently in the throws of the presidential campaign in Washington and is preparing for another debate, which will take place in New York. In the meantime president oh bomb ma has praised his running mate's performance. Joe Biden took an aggressive approach against Republican nominee Paul Ryan. He's been asked to clarify his comments on Libya. The question of who won yesterday's vice presidential debate has sparked a debate of its own. The reality there is was no clear winner, Republicans very happy with the performance of the vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan, Democrats happy with the more aggressive approach of Vice President Joe Biden a lot more fiery, punchy than Barack Obama in the first of the presidential debates, amongst those heaping praise upon Joe Biden was the president himself. He watched the debate on Air Force one, he had this to say. I could not be prouder of him. I thought he made a very strong case. But there was an issue coming out of the vice presidential debate that is a growing problem for president oh bomb ma. That is the issue of what happened and why in that attack in Libya on the U S colon slat building in Benghazi in which four Americans were killed including Christopher Stephens, the ambassador. This was a protest after that mocking video against Islam. That is not true, we know now it was Hogg to do with this video. This was a plotted attack by al-Qaeda on the building. We heard from a couple of administration officials, government officials they had requested more security in Libya, but were knocked back by the state department. When asked about this in the debate vice presidential Joe Biden said "we were not aware of that quest" it plomented this from the Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney today. The Vice President directly contradicted the sworn testimony of state department officials. He's doubling now on denial. We need to understand exactly what happened as opposed to having people brush this aside. How does the White House explain this? Well, they acknowledge yes the state department was aware of the quest for more security in Libya, but not the White House, not the press, nor the Vice President. Jay Carney, White House press secretary today: He was speaking directory nor himself and the press, he meant the White House. In over four hours of testimony, the testimony you just referenced the other day, no-one, who testified about this matter suggested that requests for additional security were made to the press or the White House. These -- president or the White House, these are issues handled by officials at the state department. That's what he was talking about. The Republicans are asks questions how did the White House not know if the department state knew. There is an investigation about what happened. Foreign policy sand national security has been a strejt for Barack Obama in this campaign, he even cites the killing of Osama bin Laden, the withdrawal from Iraq, this issue of what happened in Libya is being used by the Republicans to undermine that strong suit. Police in Pakistan have arrested through people in connection with a shooting of a school girl by the Taliban.

In Britain former and serving police officers could face charges of manslaughter after the 1989 Hillsborough disaster, 96 people died during the football riots blamed on a failure of police control. Families of the victims have welcomed an independent commission into the tragedy and the alleged coverup that followed. Relatives of the victims have waited more than 20 years to hear such words of support. 23 years was far too long to wait. It has been a generation of distress and anger and the picture is not yet complete. It is now for the independent police complaints commission and other organisations to try to complete that picture.
