Also - Julia Gillard's dinner date with Barack Obama. Ramraid destruction - the ATM thieves. Ultimate shopping bonanza - how you can cash in. ANNOUNCER: This is Nine News. Good evening. Paul Douglas Peters, the man who caused unimaginable terror to a Sydney schoolgirl will spend at least the next ten years behind bars. Madaleine Pulver today came to see the man who strapped a fake bomb to her neck. Tonight we have her reaction to his sentence, plus the exclusive video showing how police cracked the case. It was the moment Madaleine Pulver has avoided for 15 months, coming face to face with the man who terroriseed her. Happy it's nearly all over.Today she watched as Paul Douglas Peters was condemned to a jail cell.I'm pleased with today's outcome and that I can now look to a future without Paul Douglas Peters's name being linked to mine.The judge said the attack was a henous ablgt and she was entitled to the sanctity of her home and her terror was unimaginable. Peters broke into Maddy's Mosman home last year, straped a suspected bomb around her neck and left an extortion note. The judge, I think, made him accountable today, for behaviour which is simply not acceptable in our community.Good to hear the judge acknowledge the trauma he put my family and me through.While Peters pleaded guilty, he maintained a psychotic episode made him do it. But the judge said the extortion was planned adding Peters initially denied involvement and showed little remorse. Mr Peters was actually, from our perspective, shown no clear remorse through this entire event. Is there anything you want to tell me about the extortion, kidnapping? The bomb placed around Madaleine Pulver's neck on 3 August?No.Are you responsible?No.It was textbook, detective work. CCTV footage, a money trial. The extortionists provided the vital clue; the email address he stuck to the fake collar bomb.The email address was obviously pivotal.Luke Ball led the team that tracked down the man who called himself 'Dirk Strewan' a character in a novel. It was important to us in identifying that this was not a figurement of someone's imagination. There was a genuine threat.This was rolling quickly?It was happening fast.This CCTV foot age gave police the face of the man who accessed that email account and they needed a name.We had an image of a person from CCTV that we thought was important to our inquiries and a motor vehicle.That tar was a gold Range Rover but the rego plates couldn't be seen, so police trawl through hundreds of RTA records of gold Range Rovers, matching car registrations with licence foe tes. -- photos. They got a name - Paul Douglas Peters. It took some old fashioned investigative work to be able to put a name to that image.Then there was the money trail. Debit card transactions, the baseball bat used to threaten Maddy, bought by Peters at Rebel Sport at Erina. The rainbow balaclava and the USB stick attached to the bomb - Officeworks at West Gosford, all paid for on a debit card bearing the name Paul Douglas Peters. By the time the pieces of the jigsaw started to fall into place, Peters had already left for the US. With the FBI on his tail, hep was soon arrested by a SWAT team in his ex-wife's house in Kentucky. There, on a table, James Cl oorbgs vell's novel, 'Taipan'.It is a total gotcha. It's one of those things that is almost too strange to be true. They had their man.Within two weeks he was sitting in a holding jail in the United States. Do you know anything about an email address with that name? 'Dirk Stuan'?Yes.What can you tell me? I had set up an email address with... Detective Sergeant Andrew Marks was reeling him in with the CCTV images. Then the twist. The USB stick contained a deleted document with the name of a multimillion dollar trust Peters himself had told police about.No comment. The collar bomber was collared. What was Paul Douglas Peters's biggest mistake?His biggest mistake was undertaking it in the first place.For Madaleine Pulver, now is the time to rebuild her life. This year has been much harder than last year. But I'm lucky enough to have a wonderful family and friends and we're all making great progress. You must be proud of your daughter, what she's done there?Madaleine Pulver is a very special young lady who handled herself with incredible poise and dignity throughout this entire event, so yeah, we're unbelieveably proud of her.Live to Simon Bouda outside Parklea Prison. What happens to Paul Douglas Peters now?He's been held here in ParkLeigh Prison. He will undergo a classification process which will mean he will probably then be classified into maximum security and probably housed in either Goulburn or Lithgoe jails. Maddy is heading to Sydney University to begin her college life and is looking forward to it. Thank you. For the rest of the day's news: a large factory fire is causing major peak hour traffic problems in the inInner West. Mark is at Marrickville.That traffic in and around Marrickville is a mess, as fire crews remain at the scene, making sure this fire does not get out of control again. The blaze started at 3.30, and furniture workers were applying a very flammable laquer when some spark in the factory iingnielted those fumes and the blaze --ic nighted the fumes and blaze tore through the building. The fire brigade were concerned the flames would spread. Two people were taken to hospital. At the moment it is under control and they're trying to work out what happened.Julia Gillard and Barack Obama have renewed their friendship, enjoying a dinner side by side at the East Asia Summit in Cambodia. The Prime Minister described it as a good catch-up as she begain formal talks with world leaders. Old friends together again. Tim Mathieson was also at the dinner, but the foi kus was on Julia Gillard and Barack Obama.We had a wide ranging discuss, and so it was a -- discussion, and so it was a good opportunity to catch up. Earlier the Prime Minister paid her respects to the Cambodian late kepbg's father. Tim Mathieson came. - his son came.He's oh on a private visit. He did not travel with us. He's in accommodation that's his own.This morning Julia Gillard had a formal meeting with Barack Obama to discuss plans for more free trade in the Asia Pacific. They want a new agreement by October. Kevin Rudd is at play, appearing with Malcolm Turnbull, and the two ruled out a return to the leadership or an audience suggestion they form a breakaway party.Malcolm and I could never agree on the leadership. (LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE) That was a joke. In Cambodia. A stolen ute has been driven into the front of a bowling club near Cessnock in a dramatic ramraid. Three men made off with an ATM, leaving a trail of destruction. Police hope security camera vision will help identify the thieves. There's a growing chorus of world leaders calling for Israel and Palestinian militants to end their fighting. The head of the UN has flown into the Middle East to try to negotiate a peace deal as rocket fire continues. We report from Gaza City. Captured on our camera - positioned on our hotel ball con that i. -- balcony. Another Hamas target up in a cloud of smoke. The attacks now almost a week old carried once more into the night. That was close. Listen to this. That's shelling coming from the navy ships out on the water. Within a few seconds they launch, whistle through the air, and they land off in the distance. On the streets of Gaza, the bodies of 12 family members were carried to their graves, all killed in yesterday's airstrike. The victims spanned four generations. A father raised his dead child in the air. Onlookers shed tears of pain and heartbreak. There is a mixture of feelings here. A lot of the people are sad, but also angry as well, and this is what makeings people here want to strike back to Israel. That in turn means torture and misery for more than 3 million Israelis. Residents have 15 seconds to take shelter once the sirens go off. UN chief, Ban Ki-moon, is in the region trying to broker a peace deal or a cease-fire, something to stop the rockets.

There's an important safety alert over child car seats. 60,000 anchor kits and brackets have been recalled. The warning only affects units sold since April and are identified by batch numbers 022 or 023. You will find this on the bracket. The recall includes major brands.

A revelation last night that Cooper has quit the ARU, devastated his team-mates.No other guy I like having many my team more. He brings so much to the group. But it's hard to get hold of. He has to be somewhere he feels he's treated fairly. I'm playing basketball the next two years. Rugby league like union is a team game. If you don't fit in the team, then you might find yourself in a toxic environment. Quade is a fantastic footballer but no John Eel.

Stark has outdone Hilfenhaus here in Adelaide. Hilfenhaus came here already under pressure after struggling at the Gabba. He receiveeded the backing of an influencial member. He's been pretty good.
