In sport, Steve Johnson has led GWS to a win over Brisbane in their final preseason hitout on the Gold Coast.Cooler conditions for the public holiday in the south-east but NSW misses out on both the cool weather and the public holiday. We have the full forecast on Channel 603. Welcome to the program. Bill Shorten has called on the PM to outline his economic plan for Australia this week. As Malcolm Turnbull prepares to mark six months in the top job. It comes as the Finance Minister delivered a message to the crossbench, passed legislation to bring back the legislation building industry watchdog or face the threat of a double dissolution election. It looks like a campaign, and it sounds like a campaign. The official campaign hasn't started but Bill shorten's calling on the PM to put his cards for re-lection on the table.Every time there's been a hard issue in the last six months we've seen Mr Turnbull shrink and shirk the challenge. He should bring down his budge. He should explain what his economic plans are for the nation.The Finance Minister has delivered his own directive to the crossbench.We want to pass this legislation. The only reason you would go to a double dissolution election as the PM rightly indicated is if you have an unresolvable deadlock between the House of Representatives and the Senate.He insists the ABC bill will go back to a vote.Our priority this week is the successful passage of Senate voting reform. That's a time sensitive piece of legislation. At the earliest opportunity when we come back in May, we will be putting the Australian Building and Construction Commission legislation back to the Senate.The last chance to call a double dissolution election is May 11. After this week the parliament isn't due to sit until May 10. There won't be much time for the Senate to consider the bill if the Government does want to fight both houses to an early pole on -- poll on union corruption. The finance minister has played down the option, insisting the Government is working towards a budget for a regular time.It is scheduled May 10.Not twice.The Budgeset kedgeled for the second Tuesday in May.But seven times. The PM and the Treasurer is working on 10 May.It could be almost three months before work restarts at the nickel refinery in Queensland with the jobs of the 550 workers still in doubt. The Opposition Leader has called on the Federal Government to step in and guarantee workers' entitlements while they wait for confirmation on their future.It's now time for Mr Turnbull to show that he cares about people. This is an important decision for him. That doesn't absolve Mr Palmer and his company for their conduct. Thin meantime what really riles me up is -- in the meantime what really riles me up is 800 families are wondering where their next dollar is going to come from.Queensland Nickel was put into administration. Last week Clive Palmer took back control of the plant with a new company. But previous administrators have told almost 550 employees they would not have any more work unless they were rehired by the new company. On Friday, the Queensland Government granted the new operator's environmental approval to run the plant but Clive Palmer insist there is are 18 more approvals needed before the refinery can start up again.The major approval we need is to operate a hazard facility and that hasn't been granted by the Queensland Government. You have to have all approvals or you're breaching the law. The directors of the company - which is not me - can't operate that refinery unless they've got the approvals.Even if Queensland Nickel sales restarts operations, it could be a long wait for workers facing an uncertain future.We have to have ore. The-t will take at least eight weeks to get ore on the ground. We have to work hard to see if the Government really wants us to be in Queensland. If they don't want us to be there, I won't be putting tens of millions of dollars and make that available just to lose that money.Foreign Minister Julie Bishop has touched down in Fiji to see first-hand how Cyclone Winston devastated the island nation. The Australian Government's committed $15 million in humanitarian assistance to Fiji in the wake of the country's worst natural disaster. The Government has dispatched 30 relief flights and is deploying Australia's largest naval assistance ship, HMAS Canberra. Ms Bishop inspected some supplies flown to our Pacific Islands neighbour shortly after she landed. US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's rallies have drawn more protests. His campaign has drawn a big endorsement and his opponents have drawn up an emergency plan to break his momentum. At his most recent rally, Donald Trump ridiculed protesters, calling them the people who were destroying the country.Go back home to Mummy.Tensions on the trail are flaring up. Donald Trump had just finished scolding one protester.I have to do it myself. Another leapt over the barricade. Watch there as the second protester rushes the podium. The Secret Service flanks the candidate, as agents subdue the protester and frogmarch him out. He's been booked for disorderly conduct.Thank you for the warning. I was ready for him but it's much easier if the cops do it. Don't we agree? What a great job.The Trump campaign was already on edge today. After the last night in Chicago. Trump haters infiltrated the arena.Donald Trump is not welcome in Chicago. We're going to make it clear.Trump cancelled the rally, provoking a violent reaction from Trump's supporters.We wanted Trump. Fistfights, a police officer seen bloodied. Trump didn't back down, calling the protesters thugs and communists.Some represented our calling communist friend. When they have organised professionally staged wise guys, we've got to fight back. The tensions simmering for months have reached boiling point. The rhetoric increasingly violent. The candidate sometimes egging on supporters, urging them to take on the protesters.Like to punch 'em in the face. I'll tell ya. Knock the crap out of them, seriously. Do you know what they used to do to guys like that in a place like this - they'd be carried out in a stretcher.Donald Trump has created a toxic virmt and that's allowed his supporters -- environment and that's allowed his supporters and sometimes those who see confrontation to come together in violence.Marco Rubio was asked if he would still support the GOP ticket if Trump was the nominee?I don't know. Getting harder every day.Another big Trump rally planned. Heavy security inside the venue right now. All calm so far. Outside the Trump supporters and the Trump haters are taunting each other. Two men have been charged after a series of brawls broke out in Sydney's CBD in the early hours of this morning. Police initially said 200 people were involved in the fights but later reduced that figure to 30 people. Police are still investigating what sparked the brawls which occurred in the laneway near the Metro Theatre Concert venue.From what I understand the majority of the persons involved were of an African descent. As far as I know there were no other groups involved at all. We're trying to establish all. where that group came from. We haven't firm leaf established the link between the group and the Metro or any location of interest at the moment.It's understood at the time the brawls began, a concert had just finished at the theatre, pushing crowds on to nearby streets. And Victoria's Deputy Police Commissioner has denied reports an outbreak of violence in Melbourne's CBD overnight was a clash between two rival gangs. More than 100 young men took part in the violence during Moomba Festeral celebrations, threatening bystanders and clashing with police. Police say they were alerted to the situation after seeing posts on social media. One man was arrested for assaulting a police officer, while another was taken into custody after allegedly being found armed with a taser. Homicide squad detectives are investigating a suspicious death at a disused mine in northern Victoria. Emergency services were called to Whroo yesterday after prospectors found a body in a mine shaft. Specialist services attended this morning. The body is yet to be retrieved and the cause of death has not yet been determined. Rescuers are searching for skiers buried by large avalanche in the Italian Alps near the Austrian border. At least six people have been confirmed dead with one other injured. Tragedy at 10,000 feet. 15 back country skiers were climbed the mountain when the avalanche -- climbing the mountain when the avalanche hit. Six died and one was injured. Help was sent but rescuers struggled with the difficult terrain and challenging breathing conditions at high altitude.

TRANSLATION: Five people were from the Italian region. One was from Austria. Among the rescuers - police with dogs, three elhelicopters and police. The risk of avalanche was at 2, moderate risk, it means the snow was old. Around 100 workers from different agencies were involved in recovering the skiers. Eight surviskers have been delivered to -- survivors have been delivered to safety. The bodies of the dead have been recovered. With everyone accounted for, rescue efforts have now been called off. Child refugees in Turkish border camps have told Sky News they live in fear of Islamic State after their parents and relatives were murdered by the militants. Councillors at the camp say a generation have lost their childhood. She has, at the age of eight, lived a lifetime of pain. She sings for peace but is haunted by the spectre of war. Her family fled the bombing and shooting three months ago but she still hears the sound of explosions and gunshots in her sleep.

Her father was murdered by the Islamic State. She witnessed him being taken awacht she's now cared for by her uncle and mother. He says a generation of children have lost their childhoods. Approximately 40% of Syria's refugees are under the age of 12 and many of them are suffering from post traumatic stress disorder. The children here, like other kids displaced by the Syrian conflict, need more than just food and water. Most of them have experienced first-hand the traumas of war. And the psychologists working at this camp say it will take month, if not years, of counselling if they're to regain any semblance of a normal life. Peggy Chan, a councillor from Doctors Without Borders, is helping them recover.A child may be seven or eight years old and then they go back and there may be a sign. Some of the children would also withdraw. They end to isolate themselves. Don't interact with people. Don't talk.So this is shrapnel? The suffering in the refugee camps is overwhelming. His heldest son was killed by an airstrike by Russian jets. He shows me the scars on his youngest son's body. He's barely spoken since the attack. The destructive power of the war has reached far beyond the battlefields. The unseen damage to the mental health of Syria's children is another of the conflict's lastest tragedies.

The documents described by officials as a gold mine of crucial information have revealed more than 60 people with British connections are linked to the group. While also providing details of two training camps set up specifically to coach people to carry out attacks in the West. Analysis of the Islamic State files is revealing more and more about the British involvement in IS. So far we've identified 64 people, either British nationals, residents or with links to the UK. The files identify two specific camps where the fighters were stationed and trained. Sky News revealed their existence last year, with former IS members confirming that the foirthz were being trained for missions a -- fighters were being trained for missions abroad. The first camp as 370 men, four of whom are British. Others came from the US, France, Belgium, Sweden, Germany and New Zealand. Some were gh credibly young. Nine are under the age of 16. What is critical about this paperwork is the documents are graduation certificates. They've completed their terror training. One of the graduates is a Moroccan, described in the files as a chemical missile specialist. In January this year, Sky News revealed IS's extensive research and development wing, almost exclusively housing foreign fighters. It was here they developed the technology to recommission surface to air missiles. All of this information was prepared for transfer to supporters in a host of different countries. Amongst their research program was the development of remole control car bombs with mannequins coated in foil and self-adjusting thermostats to create the signature of a human and avoid security scanners. Camp 2 houses 110 people. One of the men is a Libyan. He lists his skills as assassination and smuggling. Each piece of information is building a picture of Islamic State and the fighters attracted to it. Trained and in some cases sent back to attack at home. This is the start of an international man-hunt. Doctors who treated Germanwings pilot Andreas Lubitz for depression and mental illness before he killed 150 people by crashing into the Alps last year have refused to speak with French investigators. The French investigators told relatives at a meeting in Barcelona that the German doctors were not required to talk about Lubitz's medical conditions under German privacy laws and they didn't, even though the 27-year-old pilot also died in the March 24 plane crash. Investigators added that one of the Saifty recommendations will be a requirement that -- safety recommendations will be a roirmt that doctors provide information about pilot's mental health issues. Good intentions have come under scrutiny with the transportation of elephants to the US. Animal rights groups say the rescue of more than a dozen elephants robbed them of their freedom because they had measures in place to look after the animals in the wild. 17 elephants fighting to survive a severe drought is now safely in the US. The life saving mission, an international effort, a special plane carrying them to Texas where huge lifts placed the 10,000 pound elephants on to big rigs.It's been a long trying time to get them here. And I am confident in saying that if we do not move these animals here, they would not be alive.It almost didn't happen. An animal rights group asking the court is to stop the move but the judge citing with the zoos:

They said the zoo secretly shipped them to the US. Tonight, zoo officials standing firm, saying the move was to save them.We have been committed to bringing those elephants here as quickly as possible, knowing what the drought situation was.Already tonight their new caretakers posing pictures of them eating and drinking and saying the elephants are doing well.
