ABC News. Those stories coming

up. First there has been a significant breakthrough in the

search for Daniel Morcombe's

body. Police revealed late this

afternoon that three human

bones have been found. Police

and SES have been come ing the

Sunshine Coast scrubland for

more than a week. Donna Field

has the details. The discovery

of the bones was made in some

pretty bleak weather. There has

been a lot of rain today and the bones search site at Beerwah on the

Sunshine Coast about 7

kilometres from where Daniel

December 2003. Morcombe disappeared in

December 2003. The bones were

found in the same area that two

matching shoes were found, one

was found yesterday and one on

Wednesday. All of those items

will undergo scientific

testing, DNA testing to see

whether they belong to the teenager. Police are cautioning

that despite this breakthrough

people need to realise that

they may be unrelated the case.

The Morcombe family has been

advised of this discovery and

for the Morcombe's they've

always said that their focus is on finding Daniel and giving

him the dignity of a burial.

The breakthrough, of course, in

this case came a week a go with

the arrest of a 41-year-old

man, Brett Peter Cowan, who

remains in custody. He is

charged with Daniel Morcombe's

murder and a number of other

offences. He'll appear in court

again next month. Six months again

after the uprising began, Libya's revolution looks to

have reached the capital,

Tripoli. The rebels have taken

control of the key towns

Zawiya and Zlitan over the last

two days. They are now moving

in on Colonel Gaddafi's

stronghold from the east, south

and west. The American network

NBC is quoting US intelligence

reports say the Gaddafi and his

family are making plans to flee to Tunisia. Middle East correspondent Ben Knight decisive battle in the fight reports on what

for Libya. This was the turning

point for the rebels, the

capture of the city of Zawiya just 50 kilometres from the

Libyan capital. When opposition

fighters captured this town on Saturday it choked off the last

supply line to Tripoli, isolating Moammar Gaddafi in

his capital and giving the

rebels a massive morale

boost. The Gaddafi soldiers

they were here in the last

bridge in saur sau and they are now - Zawiya and they are now

going back - the rebels are going towards Tripoli. Opposition fighters

have now arrived in Tripoli. Heavy gunfire is being heard in

neighbourhoods to the north and

the east. No one knows exactly

where Colonel Gaddafi is but as

the fighting closed in on the

city the Libyan leader called

into State television claiming

the rebels have been pushed back. TRANSLATION: The Libyan

always going to have its final

leader iron grip on the city is about to be broken. A self proclaimed convoy of no

confidence is converging on

Canberra tonight. Organisers

say the hundreds of truckies say the hundreds of

taking part will circle

Parliament House in the

morning. Many are protesting

against the Carbon Tax but

issues as diverse as same-sex

marriage and road rules are

also in the requiring line. One

thing they all agree on is the

need for a fresh election. Mark Simkin reports. Scores trucks and dozens of different

grievances are thundering

towards Canberra. Some truckers

have driven around 4,000 kilometres. They're de manning kilometres.

a new election and a new Government. Whether you are

Liberal or Labor you shouldn't

lie to get into government or

else we've got nothing. Julia

the people have spoken. People

have had a gut full. I'm angry

and I don't know any other way

of showing my anger than

showing the crowd. Tony Abbott

is onboard

the driver's seat. I appreciate

that are so many decent people

right around the country who feel ripped off by this

Government. He is stepping up

the pressure on Craig Thomson

demanding the Labor MP step

down as the chair of parliament's economics

committee. I think it is var

hard for someone who can't

answer questions about his own

credit card to cred inially ask

questions of the Governor of the Reserve Bank about the

nation's credit card. I have

full confidence in Mr Thomson.

As I said before allegations

have been made and denied. The

thunder. Labor would prefer to storm steeling the

talk about a new plan to make

it easier to switch banks. They

will be free of the burden and

head ache of trying to run around around collect all their

debits and credits and so

on. In other words, the banks

will change the details of

salary disbeersments and direct

debits. There will be costs

associated with that but they

are quite small compared to

what the costs otherwise would

be. I don't think we will see customers charged anything for

this service. It does not allow customers to keep their reserve

- their account numbers. It was found to be too expensive.

Ban in 2008 amid similar fanfare Wayne Swan launched a

different scheme. Bernie

Fraser's review concludes that

plan was seriously

flawed. Canberra motorists may

not have to leave quite so

early for work tomorrow morning

after all. Organisers behind

the so-called convoy of no

confidence warned o traffickic

delays across Canberra saying several thousand vehicles would

be taking part. A venue hosts

five of the 11 convoys says

numbers have dropped significantly. We significantly. We were

expecting around 3,000 vehicles

coming and now we are expecting

about 200 or so. The North

Canberra venue closed its

entire back section for the

convoys. Peak hour disruption

is still expected on roads

leading to parliament. The ACT

Government has been accused of

overlooking fire risks at a

Belconnen site where blaze broke out yesterday.

Crews are still at the Parkwood Road Recycling Estate

monitoring the fire and piles

of mulch and wood. The Canberra Liberals say inspections over

the past two years show several

businesses in the area have failed to clear timber

stockpiles. I was told they

could be a fire risk, I passed those on to the government and

here we are 15 months or so

later and it turns out a fire

has taken place there and it is fortunate no one was injured

during the blaze. The

Government says prixing guide has been working

closely with the business for

some tile. There has been

significant reduction in the

number of timber pallets on the

site as a result of instruction

and advice from ACT fire brigade and that work is

continuing. The fire is under

control but is expected to smoulder for some time. British

authorities have released CCTV

footage of rioters shooting at

unarmed offy serves and a police helicopter during this month's riots

The police are calling it

attempted murder. They have

asked for help from the public in identifying those

responsible. This is the moment

when an English when an English rioter opens

fire. The authorities say he is shooting at unarmed police

officers just out of the CCTV camera's field of view. The

officers on the ground weren't

the only ones being targeted.

This footage comes from a

police helicopter survey ing

the area on the same night.

Police in Birmingham say 11

shots were fired from police from four different look at that footage and think

that the only motive could have

been to maximise the harm that

they could cause to police

officers and potentially, of course, other members public. Earlier in the night

the masked mob attacked a

police car before turning their

sights on a pub. As police

fought against rioters outside

the pub's owners fought to

control fires inside. Blazes

started by petrol bombs.

It is quite clear ha the

intention of those people was

to burn those premises down,

absolutely. It was not a case

of steeling a - stealing a lot

of high value goods from there. Two people have been

charged with violent disorder.

Police are calling on the public

public to help them catch others involved. This week 20,000 people attended the

funerals of three men who were

killed on the same night in

another part of Birmingham.

Police say these pictures show how close

another murder investigation on their hands. Egypt is recalling its ambassador to Israel

pending an investigation into

the killing of five Egyptian

policemen on Friday. The

Egyptians were killed by

Israeli forces who had crossed

the border to pursue Hamas

militants. Israel has expressed

regret over the deaths but that

has not quelled anger on the

streets of Cairo. Hundreds of people have been protesting

outside the Israeli embassy

It's only the second time Egypt

has recalled its man in Tel Aviv since the two countries

signed a peace treaty in 1979.

Iran has sentenced two Americans to eight years jail

Shane Bauer were detained two

years ago after crossing into Iran

adolescents. Fellow academics

were concerned about potentially dangerous

effects. He hat back saying a

small and vocal minority was ignoring the need to develop better treatments for those

Patrick McGorry last year. The

parties support the direction

of these reforms and there is a

small group of people really

who are concerned about them
