As the President was speaking, the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council were meeting in New York to plot a way forward before them - a draft French resolution before them, giving Syria 15 days to make an exhaustive, complete and definitive declaration of the location, amount and types of its chemical weapons. The regime would have to give immediate unconditional and unrestricted access to inspectors with the eventuality of destroying the measure. If not further measures a could be taken, including the use of force, which Russia opposesle Syria throwing a panner in -- opposes. Syria throwing a spanner in the works too.

His words playing into the hands of those advocating US Military intervention.I think that any initiative that would prevent this military action is worth exploring. But briefly, and I frankly am extremely sceptical.As is - the free Syrian army, as the CIA starts to supply the rebels with light weapons and other munigs, its leadership rejecting the Russian proposal out of hand.

Tony Abbott has been taken calls from world leaders. Today me spoke to US President President Barack Obama, with Syria front and centre. Tony Abbott told the President he favours chastising the Syrians without force, but if force was necessary he'd have Australia's strong diplomatic and political support.

He is expecting former Deputy Prime Minister Anthony Albanese would also run.I think he should. Obviously that will be up to him to decide.I believe I bring energy, I believe I bring optimism. I'm hungry for victory.As for those attacking each other.Please go into an empty room and say it to no-one.Bill Shorten says Labor will oppose repealing the carbon tax. A leadership ballot triggers the party's rules meaning the wider membership also votes - meaning Labor could be without a leader for a month. ut a leader for a month.These rules make us a laughing stockThere's nothing wrong with e's nothing wrong with a bit of democratic process.

Australia's jobless rate has been steadily rising since the beginning of 2012, and is now at its highest level since the middle of the global financial crisis in 2009. For the month of n 2009. For the month of the August the unemployment rate rose to

The biggest increase came from WA. Up 0.4% to 5%, reflecting the pull-back in the mining investment story. Now to CommSec for more.These figures are backward looking data. Before the election there was a period of

backward looking data. Before the
election there was a period of uncertainty We had consumer confidence and business confidence figures suggesting that levels are likely to pick up over the medium term, we'll have to wait and see. In the meantime some suggest the National jobless rate could exceed 6%. Traders sold off the Australian dollar after the release, betting we'll see ease, betting we'll see another interest raid cut soon.The Reserve Bank will maintain an evening bias over the next few months, they are in wait and see mode to get a better gauge on how the economy reacts. If there's no pick-up in activity, another rate in activity, another rate cut before Christmas to try to bolster the consumer spending period over Christmas is likely.Incoming Treasurer Joe Hockey.Incoming Treasurer Joe Hockey kept a low profile but released this statement about the need for a positive economic plan. He's hoping to create 1 million new jobs in the next five years.The Perth man acquitted on charges in Malaysia carrying the death penalty is disappointed to be back in custodyy.Last week Dominic Bird was found not guilty of drug trafficking and set free. He was re-arrested on Monday, just minutes before his flight to Perth. His lawyer has accused Malaysian police of corruption.There is a case to argue. You can see that people are being subjected to a death penalty. Based on evidence, mostly by police officers, who we have proven - this is perhaps the tip of an iceberg. It could be serious as to the corruption in the police.Today the Kuala Lumpar High Court denied Dominic Bird bail, saying it needs more time to consider the case. A group of Australian trekkers is back after a horrifying ordeal in the jungles of Papua New Guinea. Two of their porters were hacked to death in front of them by armed bandits.Out hem by armed bandits.Out of the jungle and into the spotlight. Touching down in Cairns, the trekkers were asked to make sense of what had happened to them.I don't - you know, there were three very bad people. They had done a lot of damage.The group had set up camp on Day 1 of the Black Cat Track, when armed men approached.I saw them coming out of the bush and I thought "What?", three guys with hoods on and - and machetes, rifles, and then they were into us.Local porters were attacked first.We could hear the cries from the carriers, slash, slash, slash - you know, they started on us. I was hit a couple of times s hit a couple of times - just with the flat of a bush knife.Two porters were hacked to death, several other locals badly injured.We are here, and two boys are not. And many others so badly LAS rited it's unlikely they'll work again.We are putting together a trust fund, a donation fund for the locals. We just want people to support it.Trek leader Christiana King led those who were able on a 5-hour walk to a medical clinic, down the same path the attackers had appeared from. They seemed to have disappeared now, though a police helicopter and locals are looking for them. If found - PNG's Prime Minister says they should face the death penalty. As for the trekkers, some have not ruled out going back.I would like to do the walk again, but it's going to depend on my family, whether I can get away with it or not.This is not New Guinea, the people are gentler and it is worth going there, worth having an adventure. But be prepared.For now, it's all about getting home.My wife is waiting at Mackay airport. My son has flown up from Brisbane. That's what is waiting for me shortly. That's what I want to see. A trip they will never forget. Anger is mounting an Manus Island with a group of locals threatening to shut down Australia's asylum seeker processing centre. In this exclusive SBS story, they have expressed anger at discrimination in pay rates for workers helping to build the centre. While many locals welcome opportunities that Australia's asylum seeker processing centre brings to Manus Island, some are angry they are not reaping the benefits. Workers at the centre staged a half day strike last month to demand their be be lifted from $1.50, less than half that of other worker. In a video exclusive to SBS, this man claims local workers are used as cheap labour.

The centre's security operato,, G4S say security staff paid the same basic wage, with non-Manus Island employees given a deployment allowance. Landowners are angry. They say most contracts for building and supplying the centre have gone to Australian companies. They have blocked access to a garbage dump they claim was used by the centre.No products, no plastics...Another group has blocked access to a gravel pit used in the construction of a permanent centre. Here the Immigration Department says there's no disruptions to centre operations, and discussions with locals about a long-term waste site continues. It says locals are engaged by and paid in line with PNG's Department of Industrial Relations rates. Locals are encouraged to apply for jobs. One Manus Island MP is warning the situation could turn nasty.When the time gets to a point where they decide they have had enough. You will see blockages to the airport. They will close the camp down. If we don't do something quickly. The whole thing will be in jeopardy.Mr Knight raised the issue in parliament and is calling for an investigation by the PNG government into whether Australians working at the centre comply with local labour laws. Australian trained police are under fire ained police are under fire for their rough treatment of villages in the Solomons. Police involved in a hunt for a suspected murderer have been accused of undermining the peace protests on the islands. Four 10 years an alleged murderer has been on the run in the jungles of Malaita, accused of crimes committed during the Solomons ethnic conflict.From here. The commander and some soldiers ran around the house. Some came around in front of the house.In May about 10 heavily armed Australian led place raided Fauabu.Edmund Sae is wanted for the murder of the Royal Solomon Islands Commissioner of the police force force.Stun grenades were used, shots fired. In child needed hospital treatment. There are a number of devices used, but no bullets are fired.It's a big slap of the face of the peace protest. That's the feeling we get during the tension.In the past decade Australia spent. 2 billion on a largely successful peace- keeping operation in the Solomons. Known as the Regional Assistance Mission, or RAMSI. The raids were over within 30 minutes. What they did achieve was to destroy any faith the people have in RAMSI. Communities are in year. He committed a serious offence, he's believed to have used a firearm. It's a view at odds with the nation, still trying s with the nation, still trying to reconcile its violent passed. Edmund Sae is pretty well getting back into society. I back into society. I read that in - that he's been well adjusting to the society and hasn't imprisoned anyone. Does he endorse the auffed raid.Matters of the Australian Federal Police rests with the Commissioner of police, not the Prime Minister.The villagers insist they are not harbouring the fugitive. It's the second time they've been raided. They will take all reasonable steps to bring him to justice.Peace is very fragile at this point of time. Edmund Sae is at large, and the peace is holding. For some, the welcome for Australia's police is wearing thin. You're watching World News Australia on SBS. Coming up next, a losing Liberal hits out at his party's treatment of migrant candidates. Shortly the real reason the Mammoth died out. Later, all in the name of charity, Britain's princes turn traders to hon your victims of the September 11 attacks.

A defeated Liberal candidate has gone to ground after accusing his party of treating migrant candidates as second-class citizens. Andrew Nguyen said he did not stand a chance because the party ignored the wishes of foreign-born voters. Winning a safe Labor seat was going to be tough. Andrew Nguyen said his party head tougher. The Vietnamese- born candidate was contesting the seat of fowl rer. He was asked for interviews. SBS Radio held a forum. He was keen to attend. After checking with party advisors,He confirmed that he was not allowed to be part of it and they told him not to take part in the forum.As well as being told it switch off his phone. Andrew Nguyen was escorted away from an appearance by Tony Abbott in Liverpool. The party didn't know how to campaign with foreign-born people and candidates, including those in the seats of Greenway and Parramatta.Comments like this are not helpful at the end of the day. I don't know why he made the comment or why he mentioned my name.Martin Zaiter says the support he received from the Liberal Party was phenomenal. Votes are being counted where Martin Zaiter trails Julie Owens by 0.6. But the Liberals are ahead in Ashleigh Barty, where half the population was born overseas. The seat of Fowler is home to large clusters of Vietnamese-Australian voters. Andrew Nguyen's cap pain was so ineffective that a majority voted Labor. In Cabramatta, the ALP received five times the number of first preference votes and secured Fowler with a 9.4% swing.

It's a substantial chunk of Australia that is going here.He would not be drawn on how the incoming Government would deal with the issue. I'm unsure what our position is at this point in time. Once a block of land is found the can block the sale. Farmers support the mood.Our sector will not survive without a level of foreign investment and capital that is required to take Australian agriculture forward.Mr Linnegar says buying Australian land doesn't mean Indonesia will whittle back export quotas. l whittle back export quotas.If the trade continues and they invest in that that could mean more jobs for Australians.Graziers in the Northern Territory welcome foreign investment as a lifeline after the previous government suspended live exports.

The road has been fought over several times since armed rebels seized the area. The civilians who lived here, part Christian, and the rest Muslim, fled. It was late afternoon. Since the morning the Syrian army had been assaulting the town and seized the main scare. The heavy gunfire showed the rebels were fighting back.

Most of the Syrian troops trying to push them out were volunteers who joined a territorial force called National defence. Nusra are a terrorist group. They are destroying people and all the people are against them. They are destroying churches and mosques. This area has some of the oldest Christian churches in the Middle East. Its people in Damascus still speak Aremaic the language they believe was spoken by Christ.

Most Christians and other minority sects in Syria support the regimes, or believe it's a better option than jihadist rebels and foreign fighters.I've been here and talking to the soldiers. A lot of them are local men, some Christians, who say that they are fighting for the town and for what it stood for. As well as that, they are Bashir al-Assad loyalists and are fighting for him.Malula is treasure usualed by every Christian in the Middle East, and the rebel advance horrified them. The Syrian army is well supplied with arms and ammunitions by Russia and... Fresh troops including volunteers from Christian areas and Damascus, got ready to go into action. The men said western countries opposed to the Assad regime were backing the wrong side and should help them to fight jihadist help them to fight jihadist rebels. He said - "Tell the EU and the Americans that we sent them St Paul 2,000 years ago to take you from the darkness", you sent terrorists to kill us. Wounded men were rushed back from the frond line. This is the reality of the war in Syria. Conventional weapons killed more than 100,000 people on all sides of this Civil War. And kill more every day. Syrian army jets were circling. Supporters of pro western armed rebels thought a few days ago that the Americans days ago that the Americans might tilt the war their day by attacking the regime's armed forces. The fact that the world's powerful military may not come after them is good news for the Syrian army and supporters. Chinese government is drawinging up plans to move 100 million people from rural areas to the cities in the coming decade. It's premier says more needs to be done to boost incomes and living standards. For many the pace of change is leading to divisions and discontent. Never in human history has one nation changed rapidly. The government here calls this the China dream. Giant cities rising from nothing. This massive building spree is what kept china's economy growing fast. Now the plan is to move another 100 million people into the cities in the next 10 years. In the rush for riches, many are losing out.The dream here was a boarding school. Her husband built it a decade ago. It had over 1,000 student. Studying English, all paying to be educated here.

The family say they've been beaten up dozens of times. The police do nothing. It's a vicious circle. To keep growing china is urbanising, lands ing china is urbanising, lands is being grabbed. Ordinary Chinese are left feeling abandoned, vulnerable. Our parents are old. In their '70s, and 80s, they worry about it because of what is happening.

Humans have been blamed for hunting the woolly Mammoth to extinction around 4,000 years ago. 4,000 years ago. A study suggestions we might be off the hook. The new factor is climate change. There's plenty of evidence that humans hunted woolly Mammoths. Many believe that it led to the extinction of gigantic creatures 4,000 years ago. Scientists studying their remains are seeing a different picture. By drilling into their tuskss they extracted DNA. From it they are able to tell moum mammoths there were at any given time. If the DNA from each is urgent, there were lots of them. If there are signs of inbreeding there are a few. The frozen remains of mammoths have remains of mammoths have been discovered across the world. DNA from their bones, and teeth, and their hair shows that their demise was due to a change in climate. It began 20,000 years ago. The ice age was at its height.It was too cold for Mammoths, it would have depressed the plant growth that the mammoth depended on. That was the first hit of a process leading to its extinction.Then it became too warm for them.Mammoths - the Woolley mammoth was the size of a modern day elephant. It thought they ate huge amounts of grass around 200 kilos.40,000 years ago. There was lots of ago. There was lots of grass for the creatures to eat. As the ice age ended the grass disappeared, so did the ma'am oth. These beasts were forced north as their grassland was replaced by forests. One clear message from here is that mammoth don't like the warm. When it gets warm, they get going, they go up north and sometimes they go up at least once they went up when they weren't extinct. All that's left of the ceet tours. Is there frozen remains. Some Woolley mammoth trivia you may not know. th trivia you may not know. They lived up to 80 years and died when their last set of teeth wore down. There was a Woolley era. here was a Woolley era.

Johnson was among a number of high profile former athletes and administrators calling for change at an antidoping forum in Sydney.

If the World Anti-Doping Agency continues to catch cheats, it's wasting time testing millions of athletes every year.The sport begins with expersonnel forces, those that have a commercial or criminal interest, and then the athletes are corrupted. A new approach needs to be taken, moving away from a concentration on testing to focusing on investigations. 25 years ago Ben Johnson became the notorious drug cheat in history.Preaching what he learnt from mistakes made is important for athletes.Two petitions to the International Olympic Committee and Wada are asked to keep funding and powers. For Johnson it's about convincing the next generation to learn from his mistakes.I can change the minds of young people, that what I did back then was a mistake, and I never want to go back that road again.

When I first came to Britain,

you would not have called this
a curry nation.

But today you certainly can.

Now most curries came
from South Asia,

and different parts of South Asia
have different kinds of curries.

They're all wonderful,
but there's one particular area

where I find that the curries
are exquisite.

Today I'm going to be exploring
the food

loved by the Gujarati people
of Britain.

Gujarat is a state in western India,
and its people

have one of the most delicate
and varied cuisines in the world.

Many British Gujaratis
first lived in Africa,

and it is that African influence
in their food that is something very special and
it is that that I want to explore.

This is what is eaten
through much of Africa.

And I also discover that real India
is to be found in Britain

with Gujarati Hindu classics.

These are cooked exactly the way
they were cooked a long time ago.

And I'm going to teach you
how to cook

a very nutritious dal soup
with pasta in it.

Pasta in a curry, I hear you say?

Trust me, this is one of
the most delicious recipes

I've ever cooked on television.

When my first recipe book
was published in the UK in 1973,

Indian food was in its infancy here.

But, boy, has it grown.

Wherever they travel in the world,

people take their favourite recipes
with them.

As they settle in new countries,
traditional recipes get adapted.

through food

and that is something I am going
to be doing in this program.

I have come to Leicester,
where many Gujaratis have settled

and made Belgrave Road
the centre of their community.

It's a very special street

filled with sari shops and
restaurants and Gujarati businesses.

But not all the food for sale here
sounds like it's Indian.

What is this one here?
That's mogo pili-pili.

Oh, mogo pili-pili.
That, I'm going to taste.

These spicy cassava chips are
on every Indian menu in Leicester.

But cassava is more popular in Africa
than it is in India.

And its name, mogo pili-pili,
is Swahili.

I want to explore this
African-Indian link a bit further

and ask listeners
to a local Indian radio station

about their favourite recipes.

Hello, how are you?
How are you?

To help me with my research,

Faruk Razak invites me
to his radio phone-in show.

In the 19th century
and the earlier 20th century

a lot of Gujaratis from India
went to Africa,
