ZIMBABWE: The Commonwealth Secretary General is going to Zimbabwe to pass on a message from the Commonwealth Ministerial Action Group. Meanwhile in Zimbabwe Mr Mugabe’s cabinet has been meeting. Shortly after the CMAG report was released a report came through that the brother of an opposition election candidate had been murdered.

WAITARA SHOOTING: Police say they have received death threats against the constable who shot Steven Wallace in Waitara on Sunday Night.

POLICEMAN STABBED: A man has been arrested after a police officer was stabbed in the stomach in Mangere. The police officer was following up reports of a naked man knocking on windows. The injured constable has undergone surgery.

WEST COAST LOGGING: The PM is stepping into the West Coast logging row and will today meet with Greens to discuss the issue. Rod Donald says he will be asking the Government to clarify its position.

PHILIPPINES: The government of the Philippines says it will keep up its military cordon around the base of Muslim separatists who have taken hostages – including westerners.
