Cervical Cancer Inquiry - ACC Argument - F16 Deal - Israel Pull Out - Baby Skull - Boat Aground - Team NZ On Tour

CERVICAL CANCER INQUIRY: There are calls to widen the scope of the cervical cancer inquiry after the latest Health Funding Authority figures showing 1,500 women were misdiagnosed by Gisbourne Pathologist, Dr Michael Bottrel. The Prime Minister has indicated she may extend the Ministerial Inquiry into other cancer diagnoses by Dr Bottrel. The Health Funding Authority experts say there is no need to do this.

ACC ARGUMENT: The Prime Minister says the misread cervical smear cases are a compelling argument into keeping ACC in public hands.

ISRAEL PULLS OUT: Israel has announced plans to pull out troops of Southern Lebanon after 18 years of occupation by July this year. Syria has not officially reacted to the decision yet.
