In a rare move, Kevin Rudd has suspended his election campaign and is tonight preparing for a top-level security briefing on the worsening crisis in Syria. It comes as Tony Abbott prepares to officially launch his election campaign. Kevin Rudd was in Sydney when he made the decision to hold his campaign, flying to Canberra late this afternoon for top-level briefings.We have grave concern.

Tony Abbott thinks it is appropriate. His campaign goes into its second last week. He looks on the verge of becoming a minister. -- prime minister.

They hope to win on the back of the Kevin Rudd factor.I am in the business of fighting an election as hard as they can. I will fight for the things I believe in.Frankly, I do not believe them. I believe this is a very close race. This campaign still has a long, long way to run. The poll points to potential disaster Kevin Rudd personally. Staring at the prospect of losing his seat.The people are going to get behind him and support him.I am a bit dubious about the Labor Party.Labor is convinced it can come back. They believe Tony Abbott will cut health and education.I will fight for what I believe in. We will see what the mother of all negative campaigns unleashed, scare after scarer, lie after lie.And that the Greens, their own warning. It stops Tony Abbott getting absolute power in the Federal Parliament.There will be no scare in turn out that's campaign launch. -- Tony Abbott's. We are now joined from Canberra. Kevin Rudd's briefing on the crisis in Syria should get under way shortly?That is right. He is due to touch down shortly.

The situation is becoming more tense, with the United States moving naval warships toward Syria. Fighter jets and unverified division continued assault. While bodies were to be buried, with no sign of blood a troubling sign that points towards a chemical attack. When you start seeing chemical weapons used on a large scale, again, we are still gathering information, it is very troublesome.The distressing images of women and children across our screens are more than troublesome. This is not something that a humane or civilised world can ignore.Even though Russia believes the rebels could be behind the attack, they have also joined Corrs to the city and government to cooperate. -- calls for the Syrian government.We believe that we would like the United Nations to be able to assess it.But the UN team on the ground in Damascus has not been allowed to investigate.

Sedated, the dogs are taken to a shelter. This is the 2-year-old who watched as the animals attacked his mother. She threw herself on to the pram in terror as one grabbed her on the neck.I just help, help, help. I came out and tried to get the dogs away from her.Two police officers were also bitten. Today they discovered the dogs were not microchip and the owners were overseas.They were in a secure yard. As to how they got out, we are not sure.Locals have spotted the dogs wandering unrestrained along this adjacent street before.
