East African leaders call on Congo rebels to end hostilities.Stop talk of overthrowing an elected government. She knows nothing, Julia's Gillard's former boyfriend says she had no connection to union slush fund. Confrontation in France, police evict protesters opposed to new airport. Good evening. Welcome to the program. I'm Lee Lin Chin. Later, Mariana Rudan will join me with all the day's sport. Feeling the pressure, South Africa struggles for survival against Australia in the second Test in Adelaide. But first, Egypt's judges have called for a nationwide strike to protest against the decree which grants President Mohammed Morsi far reaching new powers. They have also united behind the country's former chief prosecutor, who was sacked on the day the president issued the decree which eliminates judicial oversight of all his decisions. The mass protests of the previous day may have died down, but opponents of Mohammed Morsi are determined and say they will not go away. On the steps of the High Court, protesters rallied in support of the judiciary. While 150 judges, lawyers and prosecutors gathered to condemn the move to silence the courts.

silence the courts. The prosecutor, who was sacked by Mohammed Morsi last week on the pretext that he'd failed to pursue police charged with killing Tahrir Square protesters in 2011, accused the president of fabricating evidence.

Judges and opposition political parties have united in their call for a mass rally on Tuesday. The Muslim Brotherhood immediately countered that, calling on Morsi supporters to flood the streets of Cairo on the same day. Nobel Peace prize winner and former Presidential candidate, Mohamed ElBaradei, says the protests will only end if Mohammed Morsi withdraws the decree which gives him unchallenged executive powers. There is no room for dialogue when a dictator imposes the most repressive, abhorring measures and then say, let us split the difference. We cannot split any difference there, but we are of course ready for dialogue once he rescinds that and then we can talk. Political observers say Mohammed Morsi has another problem as ordinary Egyptians face the pressures of rising prices and unemployment.Especially if you go to squatter settlements, to the countryside, people who voted for him, they have begun to feel disillusioned, they thought things will be much better.Now many are asking whether life in Egypt will get worse. Talks are under way in Africa to find an end to the conflict in Democratic Republic of Congo. The fighting between rebels and the Congolese government is not new, millions of people have died in violence dating back to 1997. But what's different is that the divide between the two sides is even greater, making the goal of an agreement even more of a long shot. DRC President Joseph Kabila was among the African leaders who gathered for what was billed as an extraordinary summit to end the rebel's advance across eastern Congo. But the leader of the M23 rebels, the other half in this growing conflict, wasn't there because he wasn't invited.M23 stop expanding the war forthwith. Instead the two sides met afterward, the specifics of those talks were not made public. Since April, the M23 has grown from a small group of rebel defectors into a well-armed military force that continues to occupy communities in the DRC's east, including the city of Goma, causing tens of thousands of people to flee for their safety. But the rebels' concerns go beyond being a bigger part of the army and date back much further than April. They have also been calling for the protection of Tutsis in the region. Since 1997 we have refugees in Rwanda in camp. We ask the international community to hear about us, not to fight us because we are not asking to fight. We are not damned to die. We fight and we lose friends, we lose parents, we lose brothers.The summit of neighbouring leaders also has a list of demands for rebels.Stop all war activities and evacuate from Goma.The Congolese government has given the rebels just two days to move out of Goma. In return the government must listen to rebels grievances and integrate rebel soldiers into the Congolese Army. Even with the presence of the largest UN peacekeeping mission, the violence and what the UN calls the largest humanitarian crisis in the world here continues.Our protection monitors are reporting many incidents of violence against civilians. In Goma there have been reports of 60 assaults on civilians to our partners. Our partners are telling us eight people have been killed and houses and shops have been looted.Experts say even if this one-sided summit brokers a deal, being integrated into the army may no longer be enough for M23 rebels, who are now considering establishing their own administration and government. A key figure in the Australian Workers Union scandal has defended the Prime Minister's conduct when she was a lawyer in the 1990s. Julia Gillard's former boyfriend and union official, Bruce Wilson, has declared she had no knowledge of a slush fund that allegedly misappropriated union funds. It's the kind of headline the Prime Minister won't object to. Bruce Wilson says she knew nothing about the union fraud scandal.From what I've looked at in today's papers it's story over.Mr Wilson has broken his silence telling News Limited newspapers: They can go on a witch-hunt for as long as they like, they will find nothing. She knew absolutely, categorically nothing. The Opposition says his intervention doesn't change anything.Mr Wilson's defence of Ms Gillard is not supported by the documents.Julie Bishop says the Prime Minister's refused to answer questions about a union association she helped Bruce Wilson set up when she was a solicitor in the 1990s. It was later alleged that the association is linked to a union slush fund. Labor says there's no connection between that fund and Julia Gillard.There's still no allegation of any impropriety or illegal conduct by the Prime Minister. The most substantive allegation is maybe she didn't choose that wisely her boyfriend. The Opposition's vowed to pursue the Prime Minister as Parliament prepares for its last sitting week of the year. It's demanded she make a statement to MPs.If she has nothing to hide, if she has done nothing as she maintains, then she should have no difficulty answering the questions I put to her.The Greens say they expect Julia Gillard to answer allegations if any are put to her. The coalition's also preparing to step up the pressure on Labor over asylum seekers. It will try to reintroduce the Howard-era temporary protection visas. At the same time, Labor's Left is angry about the government's decision to place refugees on bridging visas, banning them from work.It is a race to the bottom on who can be the nastiest when it comes to these temporary visas.There's been a fresh reminder of what's at stake in this debate. An asylum seeker who survived at sea for three days has told of how 33 others drowned when their boat sank en route to Christmas Island. Tony Burke says that's why Labor's strengthened its policies.Yes, it is tough. It's very harsh, but I don't want to see a situation where we do anything that adds to the risk of people losing their lives.But they continue to make the dangerous journey. Another boat has been intercepted north-west of Cocos Islands carrying 87 suspected asylum seekers. Richard Davis joins us now from Canberra. Richard, is this scandal hurting the Prime Minister and how will it play out in Parliament this week?I think we are going to have a very bumpy ride ahead. The opposition will target the Prime Minister over the scandal. They may even move a motion of no confidence. Labour is worried some of the month that is being thrown will stick. s being thrown will stick. -- mud.It is parliament's last sitting week for the year. It appears to be shaping up as be shaping up as a busy one?It is going to be very hectic. A lot of legislation before the parliament to debate. There is ent to debate. There is legislation for the National Disability Insurance scheme. Legislation for Education reforms. There will be a vote in the Senate for the gaming laws. A very busy and interesting week ahead.Thank you. Sydney police have arrested two men after an incident at a Mosque in the city's south-east. Police say members of the congregation at the Arncliffe Mosque ejected a man after he began acting suspiciously.

acting suspiciously. Police, who witnesses say were in the area because of worldwide threats against Shia Muslims by extremists, arrested the man and another man who intervened. The Shia congregation were commemorating Ashura, the anniversary of the death of Mohammad's grandson. And Shia Muslims marking Ashura were the target of a bomb blast that killed eight people in Pakistan. The Taliban has claimed responsibility for the attack in the north-west city of Dera Ismail Khan. A trail of shrapnel and bloodstains from a 10 kilogram bomb packed with ball bearings. Hidden inside a rubbish bin, the explosives were so powerful they hurled a young boy onto a roof. Four of the dead were children taking part in the climax of the Shiite mourning month. Al- Qaeda linked Sunni militants are rife in Pakistan's north-west. They're against the public marking of the death of the Prophet Mohammed's grandson. That makes Shiites during Ashura a target. Some have received death threats. And those who choose to take part are at risk. No doubt there are concerns here, this Islamabad resident said, God willing nothing will happen. Mobile phone services were blocked in many cities, but police say yesterday's bomb was triggered by a television remote control. They are now reviewing security tactics.Every person that is entering this procession is searched and checked thrice by our force, by the volunteer scouts and by our special teams who have metal detectors. They're searching everybody.Security forces are watching from the ground and the skies. Bomb disposal experts conspicuous throughout the capital. But the Pakistani Taliban says it won't be deterred. In a statement a spokesman warned the government could make whatever arrangements it wants, but that won't stop more attacks, threatening at least 20 suicide bombers are ready and waiting. And Shia Muslims in Yemen have also been targeted in a bomb attack. Three people were killed and 13 injured as they left a Mosque in Sanaa. It's the first time Ashura has been marked publicly in Yemen for half a century. Now a quick look at some of the other stories making news around the world. Palestinian authorities have announced they will exhume Yasser Arafat's body this week. The inaugural Palestinian President died in 2004 in Paris. The head of an inquiry says the exhumation is necessary to establish whether Arafat had been poisoned. Many Palestinians believe he died after he was poisoned with the radioactive element polonium by Israel. Greek police have recovered almost 80 missing artefacts stolen from an antiquities museum in February. Three men were arrested attempting to sell a 3,000 year-old gold ring during a police sting. Also recovered was an oil jar dating back to 500 BC. Pope Benedict XVI has appointed six new cardinals from five different continents. The move comes amid criticism that the Vatican's top decision-making body is too Eurocentric. Just over half of the college of cardinals are from Europe. Illegal squatters camped on the future site of a regional airport in France are being forcibly removed by police. A confrontation turned into a riot as police used heavy machinery and firing tear gas to control protestors. French police in riot gear move in to face-off against squatters near the southern city of Nantes.

the southern city of Nantes. They fired tear gas to clear treetop tents, erected by protestors trying to stop plans to build a new airport on the 1,650-hectare site. Bulldozers were also used to squatters who have occupied the area for several months. Activists hurled bottles, stones and firecrackers, injuring several people. Police detained nine people, seven of whom were later released. Two were held for possession of a weapon. The Greens and other politicians have also denounced the $720 million project. But the government says it is necessary to provide a vital lifeline to the region's economy. The airport will have an initial capacity of 4 million passengers annually. It is scheduled to be operational by 2017. More than 100 people are dead after fire raced through a garment factory in the Bangladesh. Police say some of the victims died after jumping from the top of the Dhaka building to escape the flames. Police say lax safety standards, poor wiring and overcrowding cause several deadly factory fires every year. You're watching World News Australia on SBS.

A row's erupted in Britain over the decision of a Labour-run council to remove three children from their foster parents because it did not like their politics. The couple are members of the UK Independence Party and Rotherham Borough Council is opposed to the party's immigration policy and opposition to multiculturalism. Britain's Education Secretary has called the removal arbitrary and indefensible. Local authorities face difficult decisions on placements. This council removed three children from an eastern European background from their parents when they were told the couple were members of UKIP. They said there was no issue about the quality of care, but that UKIP's stance but that UKIP's stance on immigration had to be taken mmigration had to be taken into account.They want to end multiculturalism. These children are from EU migrant backgrounds. They do not want that going forward. I have to think about how sensitive I am being to those children.The council says it has been criticised by a judge in previous proceedings for not looking after for not looking after the children's cultural and ethnic needs. In a statement they said, we were meeting the colt will needs of these children. We were encouraging these children ere encouraging these children to speak their language. Their leader of UKIP, Nigel Farage, said the decision to remove the children was appalling. There were giving those children love and stability. -- they were. They have been discriminated against by a Labour-run council on the basis that they support a party that says, we should not be part of the EU and we should control our borders. That is the most appalling prejudice.The Education Secretary, Michael Gove, described the decision as indefensible.We need to encourage more parents to come forward to adopt. If we say you cannot look f we say you cannot look after children because you are a member of a mainstream political party, that is completely wrong.The council says it will hold an investigation into the decision to see that all the broke -- correct decisions were carried out. The foster parents have looked after a dozen different children for nearly seven years, one of them in a placement for four years. A unique weekend camp has been held on Victoria's Phillip Island, aimed at giving African men the chance of better bonding with their children. Organisers found many African men had problems finding time to be with their children. It was also an opportunity for police to foster relations with the community. Kicking goals for families while kicking a ball along the beach at the African Dads and Kids Camp. A chance for busy dads to spend some quality time with their children. This memory will be printed in his mind, he will never forget it.Why do you like spending time with your dad?Because he's my dad!This is my son, my friend and brother. All my family, this one.What are some of the things you have done with your dad?He just does some things nice. He holds the board for me when I go to the beach because it's too hard.We asked him questions we didn't know like what was your favourite memories when you were my age.Having them away for the weekend means they're totally focused on their kids, laughing with their kids, learning from their kids.Organised by CatholicCare, the camp also provides police the opportunity to build relations where there might once have been fear of authority figures.When they first begin in the program they look at me quite suspiciously. What is he doing here? By the end of the program there is e program there is a sense, we are here to support. Victoria Police are here to support communities, not just police them.Life in Australia is very different for many. Programs like these a chance to educate and adjust. It is a chance for the children to make some new friends. Judging by the endless miles, it has achieved its aim. The advice for other . The advice for other fathers and kids?You should go, it is so much fun.Now to other stories in the news around Australia. A long-serving Queensland state politician has defected to Katter's Australia Party, saying he can no longer support the leadership of Premier Campbell Newman. Ray Hopper says at least four other LNP members may follow him. If that happened Katter's Australia Party could claim the official status as Queensland's Opposition. The NSW Police Marine Command has celebrated its 150th anniversary. Since 1862 the command has been responsible for water safety and rescues on Sydney Harbour. Today's celebrations featured a mock rescue. Speculation is growing about the recommendations that will be put forward this week when the Leveson Inquiry releases its first findings into Britain's press standards. Prime Minister David Cameron says he's keeping an open mind, despite a newspaper report claiming he would reject full-blown state regulation of the media. According to Britain's Mail on Sunday, David Cameron has already decided to back a tougher model of self-regulation for the press. That reportedly includes replacing the current Press Complaints Commission, all while threatening to introduce a statutory system if matters don't improve. The first results of the Leveson Inquiry into press standards are due on Thursday. Britain's massive press corps waits in nervous anticipation. In Denmark reader complaints are handled by a press council, whose members are appointed by the government. If the press gets anything wrong, they must answer to the council, whose chair is a Supreme Court judge. Their punishment is to force us to write in a prominent place in the paper, we made a mistake, we wrote this, this is the truth. We have to print exactly the wording of the verdict of the council. And we do that.But does that mean the press is being controlled by the government?I'm not employed by the government in any way. The majority don't have any specific ties to the government. The government doesn't in any way try to influence us. Denmark's newspapers say they're happy with the arrangement because it helps their credibility. But Danish MPs are still highlighting several stories that have crossed the line, containing false accusations surrounding murder and paedophilia. Denmark's system is one of several recommendations the Leveson Inquiry could make for Britain's press. Another is Ireland's, which has self- regulation. But newspapers that sign up are given preferential treatment if they're sued for libel. The system preferred by Britain's newspapers is self-regulation with legally enforceable contracts. That would stop publishers from opting out of the system, as well as the power to levy fines. Earlier this year the Independent Media Inquiry recommended a statutory watchdog regulate Australia's news and current affairs across all platforms. The findings are still being considered by the Federal Government.
