I don't think any Opposition has been as well-prepared to become a Government as come a Government as we have been. The rise of the microparties - how Tony Abbott will deal with the new- look Senate. And the case for a military strike against Syria - the US tries to convince the world, despite reservations at home. Little wars start big wars. We have to remember that. ANNOUNCER: From SBS, this is World News Australia. Good evening. I'm Sarah Abo.And I'm Anton arah Abo.And I'm Anton Enus. Also tonight - DIY explosive kits - growing concerns over the misuse of sport-shooting aids. And royal apology - Prince Andrew mistaken for an intruder in the Palace grounds. The incoming prime minister, Tony Abbott, has returned to Canberra to start shaping his new ministry and his legislative agenda. But there is some uncertainty about the size of his team, with several seats still very close. A short time ago, the Coalition held 88 seats and Labor 57. The Electoral Commission says 5 of those major party seats are close and unconfirmed. The Greens, Katter and Palmer parties - and two Independents - all have one seat each. Our chief political correspondent, Karen Middleton, correspondent, Karen Middleton, joins us now from Canberra. Anton, Tony Abbott has a task ahead - first up, trimming his frontbench back to the required 30. He now says Parliament won't sit before late October. Back in the capital, vowing to do things differently. Now, it's in with the new government and out with the old - the prime minister- elect has minister- elect has held talks with his leadership team.The critical thing is, now, to work purposefully, methodically, calmly, and conscientiously towards implementing our commitments.He's holding off before finalising his ministry - one would-be minister, Sophie Mirabella, minister, Sophie Mirabella, is still fighting for her seat behind to an Independent. The new prime minister faces a negotiation challenge in the Senate, with a surprise collection of microparties elected. We're going to be the main opposition to Tony Abbott.Labor is still saying it will oppose the carbon tax repeal. Tat's indicated Parliament won't resume before late October. I thought we had an emergency on our borders rgency on our borders and across us in our budget. I thought there would be emergency legislation brought in in days and n brought in in days and there would be trips to Indonesia. Apparently everything's not all that urgent now. That's interesting, isn't it?Kevin Rudd has now officially resigned as prime minister. The Governor- General's agreede Governor- General's agreed to commission Tony Abbott instead. commission Tony Abbott instead. Labor's turning its attention to who will lead it in opposition. Frontbenchers Bill Shorten and Anthony Albanese still haven't declared. Both former treasurers have ruled themselves out. Wayne Swan's going to the backbench.I can say some things that I want to say from the viewpoint of my six years of experience. That, perhaps, when you're in a leadership or frontbench positionhip or frontbench position, you can't say. I will be available to the new leader in whichever role they see fit, including to be shadow treasurer.Some want Kevin Rudd to leave politics.I think he has an ongoing contribution to make to the Labor Party, and to the nation, and he should decide what contribution that is.Outgoing foreign minister Bob Carr may quit Parliament, with union leader Paul Howes a frontrunner for the casual Senate vacancy. Labor's blaming their loss on disunity.What was poor was our political management. It is this that cost us the election.As for the bungled attack on Coalition costings...It was a shocker. We really struggled for several days to gain any momentum as a result of that. Campaign headquarters put together that research and the ministers worked on it.The surprise campaign success story - the Palmer United Party - out- polled the Nationals. Clive Palmer is ahead in the seat of Fairfax. Good luck to him. He'll be a character in the Parliament if he does get there.

No dissent from that. Karen, you mentioned Labor's prospects there. Who's most likely to take over as party leader?Anton, my money rty leader?Anton, my money is still on Bill Shorten, although we still haven't heard from him or from Anthony Albanese. Those names are still both being mentioned. I think - it's hard to see Mr Albanese wanting to take on the job. ng to take on the job. I'm not convinced he does want to. It would be more likely he would be a deputy. Either way, I think theperty want an uncontested ballot. They want someone to come through as a consensus candidate. There are didate. There are a number of other people who might be potential candidates, but I think they're all weighing up a range of considerations, not least the new Labor Party rules that were changed under Kevin Rudd, which means der Kevin Rudd, which means you can't replace a Labor leader between elections unless he or she resigns. They're thinking about the electoral cycle, and Chris Bowen even acknowledged that today. cknowledged that today. They'll be wondering whether they are win a chance in three years time, and people who will be le who will be potential leaders might burn themselves off, like Kim Beazley did, never ending up becoming prime minister. Karen Middleton in Canberra. Tony Abbott has strong majority in the lower house, but is facing a difficult time when the new senators take their seats. A plethora of candidates from small parties is expected to be elected to the upper house, and they could chag challenge the Coalition's legislative agenda. From July, the Senate is going to be very unpredictable, and the incoming senators could be very interesting.It's true. Some of them are extreme conservatives, right off the map in terms of extreme.A diverse range of candidates from microparties could be elected, inlewding Ricky Muir from the motorist enthusiast party. This video has emerged, apparently showing him engaged in a Kangaroo poo fight.This is kangaroo poo. Yum-yum.David Leyonhjelm from the Liberal Democratic Party is also expected to join the Senate. He backs some of Tony Abbott's policies, but opposes others.We would absolutely support abolition of the carbon tax, but we wouldn't support spending large amounts of money on direct action.Preferences could also elect Wayne Dropulich from the Sports Party, even though he only won a tiny fraction of the vote. Glenn Druery advises minor parties on how to arrange their preference flows. Respect without doing some sign type of preference arrangements, the minor parties won't get elected. This system was put in place by the major parties to have their last candidate elected. Billionaire businessman Clive Palmer expects he'll have two senators, but they wouldn't necessarily vote with the Coalition. We'll decide issues base said on their merits.Wayne Swan says he's concerned the rich could have a disproportionate influence on politics.Without, in any way, demeaning all of those genuine voters who uine voters who voted for him, I think we should be very disturbed by the process.The rise of the microparties could turn the Senate into a chamber of horrors for Tony Abbott - he could face a very difficult time passing his legislation.He's going to have to negotiate on a daily basis with a group of people who have no policy platform in most cases.We would hope that the incoming Senate and, indeed, the senators who are currently still in office, would respect the mandate.But that's likely to be a matter of negotiation. Later, we'll look at whether the way the election is conducted for the Senate onducted for the Senate needs to be reformed. So far, more than 650,000 votes cast in the election have been ruled informal and won't be counted. The Australian Electoral Commission says almost half of those were in NSW. More than 10,000 informal votes were cast in each of the five Western Sydney seats of Fowler, Blaxland, Watson, Chifley and Werriwa.The House of Representatives' informal vote at the moment is around 5.9%. That's more than at the last federal election, where it was 5.55%. It has increased a bit.The AEC has confirmed that the rate of informal votes cast is higher in electorates where English is the second language for many voters. Every election gives the nation's economy a little boost, and this election is expected to be no different.What remains to be seen is how it will impact on us, and how long it will last. One of the first signs of confidence from a post-election bump could be found in the share markets Monday, showing an early boost in gains.It's normal to have a honeymoon period for a new government. There's a dash of enthusiasm for a kainge.Financial expert Michael pacifico expects the Abbott government's honeymoon period, and those signs of economic confidence, to igns of economic confidence, to be a little better. The Coalition etter. The Coalition has been very successful in talking down the Australian economyg down the Australian economy - all of a sudden, they'll be talking it up. I think Tony Abbott's going to be lucky. It looks like the economic cycle is turning just in time for him.Pacifico says that's more good news for superannuation funds already coming off a strong year. And the housing market is also on the rise, with the value of home loans now lue of home loans now at a 5-year high.Nothing makes an Australian happier than to think that the value of their home is going up.In the short term, a change in leadership has an immediate psychological impact, ending months of uncertainty surrounding the Labor government. Traditionally, stability and consumer confidence go arm in arm. Why would it be any different this timeThat's why certain parts of the retail sector, coming off weak winter sales, are optimistic about the change. The auto industry is also hoping for a bump, because of the change bump, because of the change in government, and it's expecting an increase in sales within the next few months. Fleet Choice Communications manager says the Rudd government's changes to the fringe benefits tax rules cost jobs in the leasing sector and further impacted already slumping sales.It's fair to say that the car industry and specialist financiers are breathing a sigh of relief from Monday morning, because FBT concessions will be restored in very short order.Experts say Tony Abbott's biggest asset when it comes to the economy right now is timing. To breaking news now - West Australian domnumber Bird, who escaped the beth penalty in Malaysia last week, has been rearrested while waiting to board a plane out of the country. He was set to return to Perth this afternoon but was taken back into custody. His lawyers say Malaysian prosecutors have launched an appeal against the 34-year-old's acquittal on drug charges. His lawyers say the rearrest will be challenged, and Mr Bird should be allowed to return to Australia before an appeal is heard. Two journalists have accompanied a group of asylum seekers making the hazardous voyage from Indonesia to Christmas Island. The Department of Immigration has confirmed a Dutch and a US national were found on board when the boat was intercepted north of the island. The pair have been identified ascoble-based reporter Luke Mogelson and photojournalist Joel van Houdt. The Department says both men had valid travel documents. The United States has mounted a media offensive to convince the world a military attack on Syria is the right thing to do.In an interview with an American TV network, Syria's President, Bashar al-Assad, has denied responsibility for last sibility for last month's chemical gas attack, and warned America not to get involved. In the line of fire - rebel forces dodge an attack from a Syrian army base, and a Syrian army base, and then retaliate, leaving the hills of western Syria burning. America is weighing up its own retaliation. President Obama wants to punish the Assad regime for last month's alleged chemical weapons strike. But in a yet-to-be- broadcast interview with American network CBS, President Bashar al- Assad has warned against it.He said there would be -- suggested there would be, among people that are align would him, some kind of retaliation if a strike was made - that that would be what would be - that he would not even talk about any kind of - the nature of the response.Despite the threat, Barack Obama t, Barack Obama is pushing Congress to approve a strike. Video of the alleged attack has been sent to Congress men and -women and broadcast on American TV, and his top White House aide has appeared on five weekend talk shows to state the administration's case.

No decision has been made by the President. We will obviously take this under advisement.He's also met with Britain's Foreign Secretary in London.I do believe, very strongly, the world must stand up to the use of chemical weapons. And President Obama will address the nation to try to convince Americans it's the right thing to do.Once we're in, we're in. Once we hit, this is an act of war. Little wars start big wars. We have to remember that.Iran says an attack will ignite a fire across the Middle East. Israel has deployed its missile defence system, and tens of thousands filled St Peter's Square, answering the Pope's call wering the Pope's call for peace. While in Syria, the truly innocent continue to suffer. You're watching World News Australia on SBS. Coming up next - paedophile cure - the controversial evidence of ersial evidence of Catholic Church leaders at a child abuse inquiry. Shortly - remembering the nightmare in Chile - Canberra pressed to explain Australia's role in 1973. And later - a day at the beach in Mogadishu amid Somalia's shaky grip on security.

A senior member of a Catholic clergy has told a NSW commission of inquiry into sexual abuse that Church leaders believed paedophile priests could be cured. Today was the last day of public hearings in to allegations dating back to the 1980s and '90s. Monsignor John Asher was part of a select group of powerful Catholics tasked with helping bishops deal with allegations bishops deal with allegations of sexual abuse.I better not make any comment. It's still going on.The Sydney archdiocese chancellor told the hearing how religious leaders had faith in therapy for offending priests: "The church was strong on forgiveness and reconciliation. There was a tendancies to believe they wouldn't do it again." The special commission of inquiry looking into how claims of deceased paedophile priests were handled. Monsignor Asher says he had no recollection of he had no recollection of dealing with the cases. His colleague, Father Brian Lucas, has given evidence that he never took notes during confidential meetings. Asher had different modes of operation.There were discrepancies in your recollections?As I've said, I'm under instructions from the lawyers and the commission that I really can't give a commentary on the evidence.Monsignor Asher said bishops were the only ones who could step a priest aside. Otherwise, "Where there was confusion about the evidence and the priest had denied it, the priest might be put in a special ministry for risk minimisation purposes." He recalled going to police in two instances. Monsignor John Asher said, in those cases, it was a serious matter, and the victim was prepared to talk to the police. So, as he put it, it "wouldn't be a waste of time." The commissioner's repor of time." The commissioner's report is due in February.

A man has died in Sydney's west after being stabbed during an argument on a construction site. Police were called to a dispute at St Clair to find the man alive, but suffering multiple stab wounds. The 54-year-old Chinese national died that scene. Detectives are now questioning a workmate who walked into Campsie e who walked into Campsie Police Station a few hours later. And two bushwalkers missing in the Victorian high country have been found safe try have been found safe and well. Experienced hikers 77-year-old Ruth Binder and her 44-year-old son, Sam, were expected back from a 3-day walk late yesterday. The pair says strong winds forced them to take an alternative track, which delayed their return. A race for the Moscow mayoralty has been shaken up, with the strong showing of Alexei Navalny, a staunch critic of Vladimir Putin. Sergei Sobyanin has won the first round. Navalny, who staged a presidential- style campaign, is refusing to concede. He claims some results have been faked and is calling for mass protests. He has been described as the man President Putin fears most. The charismatic lawyer-turned-anti- corruption campaigner, Alexei Navalny, is the first-ever candidate to run a Western-style political campaign ern-style political campaign here. His slogan, "Change Russia, start with Moscow," has become a mantra for his mainly young middle-class supporters.I came here because I very like Navalny because he is only one who try to change everything what happens in our country.His campaign video uploaded to YouTube became a sensation, tapping into social media to reach the voters. It was only two months ago that Navalny was sentenced to five years in a labour camp for embezzlement. Political charges, he said, concocted for political reasons. But in a surprise decision by the prosecution, he on by the prosecution, he was released on appeal, allowing him to stand in the mayoral election. A deliberate decision by the Kremlin, say political commentators. TRANSLATION: The Kremlin needed Navalny to run for Moscow mayor to make his opponent, Sobyanin, win legally. You can't choose the mayor of the choose the mayor of the biggest Russian city - a guy who would not be supported by the majority.Navalny is running against Sergei Sobyanin, an old- school politician, ally of Vladimir Putin, and member of his united Russia Party. And the current mayor of Moscow. He's run a lacklustre, low-profile campaign, but with a huge party but with a huge party machine and a worthy but dull reputation for sorting Moscow's problems, all the polls say he'll win. But Navalny is undeterred. This election day may just mark the day the that protest politics came of age in Russia. Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari has stepped down, having completed his 5-year term. He's the widower of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto, who was assassinated in 2007. The country's first democratically elected president to complete a first full term in office. His successor, Manmoon Hussain, will be sworn in later tonight. A Thai Airways plane with 280 people on board has skidded off the runway while landing in Bangkok. The airline has blamed the incident on a landing-gear malfunction that caused the Airbus to veer offcourse. 14 passengers received minor injuries, escaping down emergency slides. Tannerite is an explosive agent used by target shooters to help identify a successful shot. It's advertised for sale in Australia. But two US states have restricted its use - they're concerned it could be misused, and used to make bombs.

Ready to fire... Tannerite, a top-selling brand of rifle targets, triggered that sonic boom, signalling the shooter struck his target.

In this jar is ammonium nitrate. In the package, alumen inpowder. Separately, they're not explosive. It's when you mix them together that it creates a high explosive. Both ingredients come in a kit and can be mixed together in seconds. It's sold at sporting-goods stores and online. Manufacturers say the targets are safe if used as intended.It's a Tannerite bomb... But a quick Web search shows a lot of misuse.We are going to blow 12 pounds of Tannerite up...

This Minnesota man detonated 100 pounds of Tannerite in the back of a dump truck. Shock waves were felt at a nuclear plant more than a mile away, forcing it into lockdown. Just last month, a US forest service banned exploding targets, blaming them for 16 western fildfers, causing taxpayers about $33 million. And the FBI is warning exploding targets can be used by criminals and extremists in improvised explosive devices. Maryland and California have restrictions on the targets, but in every other state, anyone can buy any amount without ID or a background check. Tannerite acknowledges its nnerite acknowledges its products can be misused and issued this plea. Please, please, don't misuse the product. Don't blow up anything. If you use Tannerite-brand targets for anything other than a shot indicator, you very well could be breaking the law. As we reported earlier, it's going to be a very interesting Senate, with the proliferation of tiny parties. Anton?A colourful result so far, Sarah. That's sparked calls for the reform of Senate elections. One academic argues that the system is just too complex. There are also concerns that tiny parties with little popular support can wield too much influence. That leaves questions over whether the Senate is protecting the rights of the states and territories as originally intended.s as originally intended. Liberal Democrat David Leyonhjelm is anti-gun control and believes in cutting taxes - and it looks like he'll soon be off to Canberra as a Senator. But Mr Leyonhjelm says he's a reluctant politician.I think it is a bit of a lunatic asylum. Occasional periods of intelligence, interspersed by long periods of stupidity.David Leyonhjelm was one of 110 candidates contesting the six Senate seats ix Senate seats for NSW and, after a random draw, found himself placed first on the ballot paper. It may go some way to explaining how the parties vote in NSW -- party's vote in NSW jumped from 1.81% in 2010 to almost 9% this time around.Perhaps it was due to my natural charm and charisma. Or perhaps there were some people who just like to vote for the first party on the ballot paper - that's called a donkey vote. The Electoral Commission says a record number of candidates stood for the Senate. In some states, the font size on the ballot paper had to be reduced to fit all the names. As you have more groups on the Senate ballot paper, which is printed at just over 1m, the font size gets smaller. That's why we provided magnifying cards at this election.Ian McAllister is a political scientist at the Australian National University. He says our Senate ballot papers are some of the biggest in the world. This is a big information burden that's being placed on voters, and there's great potential to cast a misballot, cast tial to cast a misballot, cast an informal vote, when you've got this level of complexity.Professor McAllister says the Senate system has become too complex and needs to be reformed. There's a lot of preferencing and a lot of preference arrangements between a lot of these minor parties, and that's something that is largely hidden from voters unless they happen to have a lot of information and do a lot of research. That's something that really undermines,mething that really undermines, I think, the whole nature of the democracy. Professor McAllister says the Federal Senate is a much stronger upper house than most around the world, but he says it's not guarding the interests of the states and territories as it was intended to do. It's in the interests of Australian democracy, he argues, to have a clear and simple Senate system that people can understand. To South America now - Chile is preparing to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the violent overthrow of Socialist president Salvador Allende. Thousands have taken to the streets to remember victims of General Augusto Pinochet's regime. Here in Australia, questions are being asked about Australian involvement in the coup. It was one of the most potent events of the 20th century. A democratically elected president killed inside his palace by a military coup. alace by a military coup. On September 11, 1973, the Chilean military surrounded the palace, while the Air Force bombed the building.

(GUNFIRE)

Salvador Allende died in the rubble. He was brought down by an alliance between the military and the United States, which declassified documents later showed had supported the coup plotters. The man who replaced him, General Augusto Pinochet, became one of the world's most despised dictators. He gave the world a new term - "the disappeared" - the thousands of people who were taken away by the military and simply never seen again.

Today, 60,000 people marched in this capital, e marched in this capital, many carrying pictures of their disappeared relatives. Their slogan, "Nobody and no-one has been forgotten." For many taking forgotten." For many taking part, there's still a burning sense of frustration that, despite a return to democracy, many questions about what happened to opponents of the regime are still unanswered.

? That frustration boiled over when one group of protesters burned a US flag, then set up barricades when the police intervened. Rocks and sticks were thrown. The police retaliated with water cannon and tear gas. The question for answers is not just confined to the people of Chile itself - some Australian Chileians are asking what roll this country played during the coup.The international branch of the Australian secret police, ASIO, were posing as migration officers in Buenos Aires and Argentina, and going to Argentina, and going to Chile and working in Chile with the CIA.They are demanding Canberra finally explains what Australian intelligence officers did in Chile, and how much the government knew. SBS Radio's Spanish program is running a series of documentaries on Australia's involvement in Chile. Details on the Radio website. A year ago, President Hassan Shekih Mohamud took office in a UN-backed bid to end the violence in Somalia. A weekend bombing in Mogadishu that killed 18 people shows that peace remains elusive. The Islamist militant group al-Shabaab has been driven from habaab has been driven from the capital. Life appears normal in some respects. But beyond the city limits, the militants and y limits, the militants and the clans are in control. These are the men struggling to bring back order in Somalia's volatile capital, Mogadishu. They are members of its fledgling police force, and they can't afford to relax. They remain on the streets day and night, trying to prevent attacks by their opponents it, the al-Shabaab fighters. Assassinations, improvised explosive devices and, suicide bombings e devices and, suicide bombings are still an almost everyday occurrence. But Somalia's President, Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, believes Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, believes a lot has been achieved in the past year.The throwing hand grenades here and there, killing people, some quarters of the city, is what's going on hat's going on now. Whereas a year ago, we were having a front in Mogadishu with al-Shabaab fighting. I don't think the security situation is deteriorating.For the first time in more than 20 years, people feel confident enough to come out and enjoy themselves on the pure white sands of the beach, the city's most popular stretch of the Indian Ocean coast. While the stream of returnees, investors and aid workers to Mogadishu is endless, it has not been replicated elsewhere in the country. The inability of the government to consolidate power beyond Mogadishu is a stark reminder to the huge challenges to lasting peace in Somalia. Outside the capital, the government has e capital, the government has little influence, with much of the country divided into autonomous religions and areas controlled by clans. How to bring the country back together is one of the government's biggest priorities. The challenge for the government is actually to he government is actually to build partnerships with the de facto authorities and forces across the country to unify them within, or beneath, a single governmental framework.But the Somali President says that will take some time.We have a history of prolonged conflict, prolonged statelessness. That has affected the fabrics of our society. Bring them back together. And unify them in the long term.With three years to go before their mandate ends, government officials are confident they can achieve a lot in bringing stability to Somalia. But the magnitude of the crisis they face remains colossal. It is estimated, Sarah, that about three-quarters of Somalia still remains under Islamist control. Thank you, Anton. To London now - security at Buckingham Palace is on high alert, after two men were arrested after a break-in last week. Overzealous royal protection officers have now been forced to apologise to Prince Andrew, after mistaking him for an intruder on the Palace grounds. For Buckingham Palace, it's been a week of unprecedented security jitters. The calm scenes that usually play out in this garden have been replaced by suspicion. Even the Queen's own son was mistaken for an intruder. On Wednesday night, Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, was walking in the gardens when two armed police suddenly confronted him, forced him to identify himself, and reportedly made him put his hands up.Suddenly you see somebody in an area where the public shouldn't be, yes, you are going to confront that person, then you realise who it is and egg end up with egg on your face.Today, an embarrassed Scotland Yard under its police didn't pull guns, but apologised, saying they were grateful to the Duke for his understanding. There's good reasons the Queen's guards are jumpy. On Monday night, re jumpy. On Monday night, a real-life intruder got into the Queen's home. He broke through a door near an area displaying the priceless coronation necklace. Police arrested him, and an accomplice waiting outside. It's the most serious Palace breach in more than 30 years. In 1982, this man hopped this man hopped the fence and climbed up a drain pipe right into Queen's bedroom. She Queen's bedroom. She woke up and stalled, speaking to him for 10 minutes until security arrived. The Queen has seen many intrusions over the years. Her Majesty's famous words are, "Get it right. Put it right. And there will be a review."Prince Andrew accepted the apology and says he hopes his next garden stroll is slightly safer. Tonight, Scotland Yard is conducting that review, urgently looking at all aspects of Palace security. Facebook has delayed implementing another round of proposed changes to its privacy policy following an outcry from advocacy groups. The groups say the revisions will allow Facebook to use personal its members, including children, for advertising purposes. Last month, Facebook was fined about $22 million for using names and pictures of users without their permission in what they called sponsored stories. The ruling prompted Facebook to review its official explanation of how data will be used for other purposes including advertising. The updated policy clarifies that Facebook users automatically consent to having their likenesses used by the site unless they opt out. This is what's causing quite a bit of an uproar. While those details are now details are now in the policy,ist not quite clear how st not quite clear how you can opt out. They don't exmisedly tell you when they're going to be using the images or say that, "Yes, we'll be using this image in this yare crufor this product."Six advocacy groups have launched a complaint with the US Federal Trade Commission, the l Trade Commission, the same body that in 2011 announced a broad settlement requiring Facebook respect the privacy wishes of isusers. Facebook gave its users a chance to respond online. So far, they've been overwhelmingly negative. One reads:

Advocates are also accusing Facebook of not doing enough to protect users under the age of 18. If your parents or guardian has given you permission to sign up to Facebook, they're also giving Facebook permission to use the child's photograph in their advertising. The parents, without knowinging, are basically giving advertisers the opportunity to use the images of children, of teenagers.News that prompted a mixed response from some of its younger users.It's not like they're going to choose our picture out of the millions of people on Facebook.But then the people they do choose, it's kind of slack.I guess.It's comun comfortable knowing they can use it whenever they like for whatever - that's really scary.Also, it's other things that people put on there, not necessarily you vulitarily putting it it on there! They're going to be using it, I don't feel comfortable with it.The changes will reportedly be implemented next week. When you have a moment, go to SBS News Online for a step-by-step guide on how to secure those very important Facebook privacy settings. Coming up - Craig Foster with sport. And - the queen of Queens - Serena Williams wins the US Open for the fifth time. Also - winning the fight of its life - wrestling survives as an Olympic sport.

Japan's share market hit a one- month high today, as investors rejoiced in Tokyo's successful 2020 Olympic Games bid. The Nikkei closed 2.5% stronger, with the win adding to investor confidence, which was confidence, which was also boosted by a stronger-than-expected expansion in the Japanese cted expansion in the Japanese economy. The growth reflects the Bank of Japan's aggressive stimulus measures. Analysts warn that a possible increase in sales tax could stifle its recovery.

Sport now with Craig Foster. What can you Foster. What can you say about Serena Williams? She keeps getting better. Extraordinary, Anton. The American star has strengthened her claim too one of the greatest players of all time, winning a 17th grand slam title at grand slam title at the US Open this morning.

She's one grand slam victory behind Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert on the all-time list, and seven behind Australian great Margaret Court. With four singles titles clinched in the Arthur Ashe Stadium already, Serena Williams made herself right at home. In the opening game, a real statement of intent from the 31-year-old. In windy conditions, the first set seesawed. Williams always looked the more likely.What a big chance for Serena Williams. That chance in the 11th game handing the American the first set. Down 4-1 in the second, the looked it like it was all slipping away for Victoria Azarenka, but she fought back, forcing a tie break. Great hitting.She claimed it 8-6. Game on, again. But the third set was all Williams, and not just her trademark power.Perfectly played.

But it was a tough battle to stay in ough battle to stay in the Olympic family, and not everyone is happy with the fact that squash, softball and baseball all missed out. Consigned to the Olympics wilderness since February, one of the Games' original sports is off the mat.With 49 votes, wrestling has been elected...(CHEERING) We did all we could to change our sport, our federation, and to prepare a good presentation. And we succeeded. It was a fair fight. Wrestling won the vote easily, ahead of squash and a joint bid from baseball and softball. But only after grappling with fundamental changes from the top down.It's quite good when someone like the IOC comes along and says to you, "It's time to change for the 21st century." And that's what we've done.Competition rules have been simplified for TV viewers, and female competitors will now vie for six medals - the same as their male counterparts. Australia had just one competitor at the London Games, but the lure of Rio, Tokyo and beyond is the ultimate sporting incentive.We've got that goal again. Everyone who wrestles, everyone who's out there dreaming of going ere dreaming of going to the Olympics, then wrestling is a way that they can get there.While wrestling's future is locked in for the 2020 and 2024 Games, the beaten sports haven't given up all hope.My guess is that, with a host city like Tokyo for 2020, they could take both, because they have ke both, because they have all the facilities already and facilities already and the squash facilities cost nothing. h facilities cost nothing.Those decisions will be driven by a new IOC president who will be confirmed on Wednesday.

Clarke smashed 105 and was given valuable support from George Bailey, as Australia cruised past 300. Clarke's eighth one-day ton included 14 boundaries. Bailey smashed four successes in his 82, as Australia took control of the match. In reply, England threatened through Kevin Pietersen and Jos Butler, but eventually fell 88 runs short. Clint McKay and Mitchell Johnson were the best of the Australian bowlers. It's nice that we played the way we did. Everybody contributed today. Everybody played a part. Still three very part.

Finally tonight - a story about a king, a lord, and the Yandruwandha people. It begins with the ill- fated Burke ith the ill- fated Burke and Wills expedition. And ends 152 years later, with the remarkable reunion between Irish and Aboriginal descendants. On August 20, 1816, a team of men headed by Robert O'Hara Burke and William John Wills started on from the Port ed on from the Port of Melbourne in Victoria to the Gulf of Carpentaria in Queensland. It became known as the Burke and Wills expedition, and history would show that only one explorer would nly one explorer would survive - an Irish man named John King, saved by the Yandruwandha people halfway into the return journey. King's incredible story of survival has been handed down through generations of his Irish family. There were rish family. There were two things about the story that were always told at home in Ireland. The first was that John King was the only survivor of the Burke and

Burke and Wills expedition. But the second thing that was always linked with it was, "And he survived because of the hospitality of the Aboriginal people on the creek."In Australia, the story was also passed down generation through generation through the descendants of John King's Yandruwandha daughter.It ruwandha daughter.It always seemed to be through a female or woman's lines that I learned about our connection to Burke and Wills. If it wasn't for that lady way back then, there'd be no me here today.While the two families shared the same story, they knew nothing of each other. In fact, in Ireland, the tale of King's Yandruwandha daughter was often thought to be embellishment.It was there in a secret, a myth, in the family. Now, it's a wonderful reality.That reality was realised when Yandruwandha man Aaron Patterson and Irish lord John Alderdice met last week in Melbourne, the same city that their story started.

last week in Melbourne, the same
city that their story started. Both Mr Patterson and Lord Alderdice say, while the meeting feels like the closing of a circling for their late ancestor, it is also an example of recsilliation.We know all about the rights and wrongs of things from Australian history, but many of us today still think there's an opportunity to come good. An internationaly recognised specialist in the field of conflict resolution, Lord Alderdice agreesism in Australia to speak at a reconciliation conference, he had just been hoping to arrange a visit to the Cooper Creek tree when he learn of the relatives.A reconciliation of the Aboriginal part and the Irish part of our family. It's very moving, really. Both families now hope to continue to tell the story of the king, the lord, and the Yandruwandha people for generations to come. Recapping our top stories now - the prime minister-elect, Tony Abbott, has held talks with his leadership team in Canberra to start shaping the Coalition's legislative agenda. Mr Abbott could face a tough time getting legislation through the Senate, dealing with a number of microparties. The US Secretary of State, John Kerry, is meeting his British counterpart a renewed effort to launch military action in Syria. Russia's Foreign Minister has warned military strikes risk causing an outburst of terrorism. Malaysian authorities have rearrested West Australian man domen inBird as he was about to board a flight to Perth. He was acquitted on drug charges last week. His lawyers say prosecutors are appealing that decision. That's the world this Monday. Our next bulletin at 10:30 on SBS One.

I'm here in Melbourne to learn about

one of the oldest cooking techniques
known to man.

Smoking has been adding flavour
to food since we invented fire.

And I'm here to meet a guy

who's been perfecting the art
of cold-smoking

for the last 25 years.

In fact, Tom Cooper
is so good at his craft,

he's supplied some of Melbourne's
best restaurants,

like MoVida Aqui.

Tom, cold-smoking is a process

that is very popular in
North America and also in Europe,

but it's not very well
understood in Australia.

Can you describe it for me

Cold-smoking imparts a flavour
but maintains the texture,

as opposed to hot-smoking, which
you see in your little baby trout,

quite often smoked chicken,

where the product is actually cooked

with a combination
of heat and smoke.

Oily fish are especially
good for cold-smoking.

We're in a Spanish restaurant
so we're going with mackerel.

Well, the first step is we're
gonna make a cure.

My cure here is salt,
raw sugar and a touch of pepper.

Love the simplicity of it -
just salt, sugar, pepper.

That's all you need.
That's it. Well, that's the cure.

So we've got our mixture there.

And we just use a cup here

and we're just gonna spread
it on here liberally.

Right, so that's quite thick.

That's quite...and this is a fairly
thin fillet of fish,

not quite as oily as salmon,

so I would leave
that for about 24 hours.

I've developed this

so small volumes of cold-smoking can
be done at required temperatures.

Right.

Tom uses a mix
of aromatic woodchips,

like birch, maple and beech.

Smoke comes up through here

and goes into the smoking chamber.

It's quite a strange feeling

'cause it's cold in there,
like your refrigerator cold,

but then it's got this powerful
smell of the smoke coming through

and yet you can't see
any smoke at all.

It's not like you're
sitting around a campfire.

It's completely clear but just
a very strong wood-smoke smell.

That's it.

And how long does that
stay in there for?

That should be in there
for about 5-6 hours.

OK, alright.

The man behind this restaurant
is Frank Camorra,

one of the hottest
Spanish chefs in town.

Frank's agreed to show us
one way he uses cold-smoking

in a simple signature dish -

smoked tomato sorbet
with anchovy and capers.

Using tomatoes he's peeled and cured
with salt, pepper and sugar,

Frank smokes them in small batches

using a plastic bag
and his smoke gun.

Once they're blended into a puree,
he adds sugar syrup...

..and a pinch of sea salt.

Then it's churned
in a ice-cream maker.

It's served on a sourdough crouton

with an anchovy and capers.

Might start with the...
with the mackerel first.

Yes. Smoked Spanish mackerel.
So that's...

After it's smoked,
we give it a finishing rub.

And on the Spanish mackerel,

we give it a rub of lemon cordial
and sweet paprika.

Mmm.

It's not a delicate flavour.

It's very, very strong
but it's actually mellow.

It's not jarring in the mouth,
it's not overwhelming.

Just a strong-flavoured...smoke
with a really nice-textured fish.

Really nice.

Try the sorbet now.
OK.

Now, Tom's tried this before

and I think he's keen
to see my reaction.

Wow. (LAUGHS)
That's an experience, isn't it?

I don't think there's anything else
that comes close to that.

That's...that's really something.

There's a whole bunch of different
temperatures and textures.

It's all kind of riding
around in my mouth.

The sorbet is very cold but it's
strong in that smoky flavour.

And that balances really well
with the sourness of the capers

and that really salty anchovy.

That's really something.

And at last. Cheers.
Cheers, Tom.

Welcome to cold-smoking.

The next phase of this journey
is hot-smoking.

At some point,
Paul Rietmier's toolmaking skills

collided with his love
of US-style barbecuing.

And when the smoke
finally cleared...

Paul, what is this
amazing-looking contraption?

smoker trailer pit,

um, which I've built to basically
do American-style barbecue.

In Australia, a barbecue's
mostly a gas flame under a grill.
