Adrienne Frances with ABC

News. There are furious tonight to free the 14-year-old

Australian boy being held in

Bali over alleged drug possession. Australia's

ambassador to Indonesia has arrived in Denpasar and is

currently meeting the teenager

and his parents. But the Foreign Minister has cautioned

that there is no guarantee of a

positive outcome. From Denpasar

here's Indonesia correspondent

Matt Brown. The boy was

arrested just up the road here

as he walked out of the ally he was ambushed. The boy's lawyers

seem to be building an argument

that he's a young man that

requires protection,

imprisonment and a report from

a psychiatrist who examined him

yesterday is expected to

bolster that case. Last night a

local friend of his here in

While the boy is now being

Peace Prize has been awarded to

three women. Each is recognised

for promoting peace and

democracy in a nonviolent way

in Africa and the Middle East. They've been the most

the influential women in Africa and

the Arab world and now they

said the prize recognised her

decade of civil war. Across

the award many times over. She's brought stability

I was worthy of the prize because I've never really thought I've done anything

this year's prize will be the end of around the world. Forces loyal

to Libya's new government say

they are now in control of most

of Sirte. The last significant

stronghold of the old regime.

they're confident of

winched to safety after their

boat was struck by lightning as

a band of storms swept through Queensland's south-east this

morning. The storms which brought heavy rain, strong

winds and some localised

flooding were a wake up call

for what the weather bureau for what the weather bureau is

predicting will be an active

summer season. The three fishermen set off an emergency

beacon after their boat was

struck by lightning off Cape

Moreton. When you look at the

size of the ocean and they're

like one drop on that like one drop on that total sea out there it's extraordinary to think that they were hit by

lightning. The boat lost power

and the men abandoned it in

favour of a life raft. The

rescue helicopter crusade it

was a challenging scenario. We

put our winch crewmen into the

water and he had to swim to the

boat because there were too

many obstacles on the boat to

winch him straight on board.

The The swell meant too the boat

was rocking and pitching quite

violently. The men were winched

to safety. I think they were in

a bit of shock. One gentleman

had mild hypothermia. He had a

small head injury as well where

he came into contact with one

of the hatches. The storms

moved through the south and

south-east earlier this morning

causing localised flooding in

Toowoomba. The Lockyer Valley also reported big falls in a

short time. We've seen some

reasonably heavy rainfall

associated with these storms,

around 60 to 70 mm 2 hour period in some parts of the south-east corner,

particularly around about the Lockyer Valley region. The

capital was cloaked in grey

until mid morning as the

passed through. 16,000 homes

lost power during the deluge

and there were 30,000 lightning

strikes. The bureau says it's

the start of things to

come. Pretty much the advice is to

to be prepared for the rest of

the season, to take precautions

around the house and also when

you're out driving. The storm

season is expected to pick up

in the next few in the next few weeks. Thailand's Prime Minister says massive flooding in the country

is now a serious crisis. Thousands

Thousands of residents have

been forced to flee their homes

Australia.Wales is through to the semifinals of the rugby

World Cup after the pulsating

22-10 win over Ireland this

afternoon. This in tonight's

other match France is leading

England at Eden Park. The Welsh

win over Ireland saw the team

advance to the semifinals for

the first time since the inaugural World Cup in

1987. There's an old saying, if

you're lucky enough to be Irish then

then you're lucky enough. The

men in green had previously upset Australia but would their good fortune prevail against

Wales? The answer was no. First

try of the match goes to Shane

Williams. Equalled the

trial in rugby World Cup

quarter finals. The conversion

made it 7-0. Ireland opened up

the Welsh defence on at least 3

occasions in the first half but

their only points came from the

boot of Ronan O'Gara. Leigh Halfpenny kicked 50 Halfpenny kicked 50 metre

penalty to put his side in

front 10-3 at half front 10-3 at half time. O'Gara's sideline conversion levelled the score. With the

pride of Welsh rugby on the line half-back Mike Philips

made a dash down made a dash down the blindside.

The Irish were still crying

in their Guinness when

Johnathan Davies burst through

some flimsy defence. The

singing could be heard all the

way from Cardiff as Wales

became the first team through to the plenty of love in the English

front row prior to their

quarter final against the

French who had been embarrassed

by Tonga in their last pool

game. England said they'd

played running rugby, if only

they could catch. And in that

match in Auckland France is

leading England 16-0. There's

been a last-minute influx of

Australian flan fans into Wellington ahead of tomorrow's

do or die rugby quarter final

between the Wallabies and South

Africa. Thanks to the fierce

rivalry, springbok players and

fans say fans say they're now enjoying new-found popularity amongst

the locals. Rugby takes

dedication. For the fans as

well as the players. Life's

going to get harder. Like going to get harder. Like on

the bus because there's 6 guys all sleeping together. The Bok

Bus is home for 6 South African

mates who are feeling jumpy about tomorrow's game. Biggest

hope is that we beat you guys,

the Aussies, and after that I don't care. Come on,

Aussie! But it's all bravado from the Aussie

the All Blacks then I'm a bit worried.

Africans a run. On the streets

Aussie numbers are building.

The cruise ship depositing

these diehard fans. They

couldn't get enough of Phil

Kearns who was in Australia's 2 winning World Cup squads. You

do need to have the experience

there, particularly in times

when you might be behind or

things aren't going your

way. But it was the weather,

not their relative inexperience

which was challenging the Wallabies today. Whether we

have or haven't got World Cup

experience I think the group

that we've got has got the goods

goods to win this game tomorrow night and that's what we're

focused on. Even if South African lock victor matfield

feel the Boks are winning in

the popularity stakes. It's the

first time I've been walking

around New Zealand and

everyone's saying good luck,

hope you do well. Like the weather in this outcome of tomorrow's game is almost impossible to predict.

But if anticipation is anything

to go by it's shaping up to be one of the cracker matches of the tournament. Manly's dual

premiership coach Des Hasler

has confirmed he will switch

clubs and join the Bulldogs in

2013. Hasler will serve out the

final year of his Sea Eagles

contract before taking up a

4-year deal with Canterbury.

Manly says it put forward a

compelling financial offer but

that Hasler was motivated by new challenge. Jim Dymock will

continue as coach of Canterbury

next season and will be

Hasler's assistant in 2014. He

will work under Des for the season onwards and that's a great career development

opportunity for him. Working

under the calibre of Des Hasler

will do wonderful for his

career. Hasler led Manly to the

2011 premiership just 6 days

ago. 2 goals each to Josh

Kennedy and Alex Brosque helped

the Socceroos breeze past Malaysia 5-0 in Canberra last

night. In a capital the national side

Malaysians in front of a

grid. We were quickest in the practice leading up to the shootout so it's really well, the car's shootout so it's been going

good. Craig Lowndes and Mark
