TVNZ Meeting – Team NZ Rift – Warehouse Banking – Camp Drowning – ACC Claim – WINZ Review – Blakie Inquiry – Environmental Disaster – Kiwi Hacker – TB Risk – Ihug Hit

TEAM NZ RIFT: A rift has emerged between the Team New Zealand yachting administration and its sailors, five days out from the first race of the America's Cup

CAMP DROWING: One boy drowned and another was in a critical condition early today after a tragedy at a remote Coromandel school camp.

ACC CLAIM: No one blames the surgeon for what happened to Maria Fredatovich, but her mother cries in frustration over the family's dealings with ACC.

WINZ REVIEW: The fate of controversial WINZ chief Christine Rankin will depend on the outcome of a Ministerial Inquiry into her department.

BLAKIE INQUIRY: In Christchurch, hitchhiking homicide victim Lisa Blakie may have got into trouble soon after she was given her first lift on the day she disappeared, police say.

ENVIRONMENTAL DISASTER: Huge tracts of the Earth's surface could disappear under rising oceans, creating millions of "environmental refugees," says a British scientist.

KIWI HACKER: Police claim an Auckland software whiz hacked into at least 19 personal computers to glean their secret account details and threatened to damage one machine unless the owner stopped using Telecom's Xtra Internet service.

TB RISK: Residents of poor suburbs in Auckland are 60 times more likely to be infected with tuberculosis (TB) than people in "posh" areas, say scientists.

IHUG HIT: Internet hackers have tried to shut down one of New Zealand's most popular Internet companies, Ihug.
