Top Story

- MEN’S CANCER: Hundreds of Gisborne men tested for prostate cancer have been given false results because laboratory staff at Gisborne Hospital have used testing equipment incorrectly for up to six years. Making the nightmare worse for health authorities is the fear that the testing could have caused men treated for prostate cancer to be incorrectly told they are cured.

Also on the front page:

- MAHUTA DEFIES ORDER: Sir Robert Mahuta, the figurehead of the financially stricken Tainui tribe, failed to respond to a "quit or be sacked" ultimatum by yesterday's 5pm deadline. Tainui's ruling executive council, Te Kaumaarua, started an internal process against the ailing 61-year-old last night, which is expected to result in his removal from all his Tainui corporate directorships by the end of the week.

- FIJI RESORT CONTROLLED: - SUVA: Forty tourists have been detained at one of Fiji's top resorts after landowners took control of the hotel. The tourists have not been harmed, and are not allowed to leave Turtle Island Resort in the Yasawa islands in northwest Fiji.

- POWER OVERCHARGE: Consumers are being overcharged by $200 million a year because of the way electricity lines companies have revalued their assets, an independent report published today shows.

- RACHEL HUNTER: Kiwi model-turned-actress Rachel Hunter was quoted yesterday as saying she was at her sexual peak and could not give up sex if she tried.

HITLER’S US FAMILY: Adolf Hitler’s relatives are alive and well on Long Island, New York. Three of the Fuehrer’s great nephews, ranging from their mid-30s to their early 50s, run a small business in the suburbs of New York City, according to the New Yorker magazine.

- BLAST KILLS 100s: An oil products pipeline exploded in Southern Nigeria killing about 250 villagers scooping up petrol with buckets, officials said last night.

- NBA DREAM: Ground-breaking New Zealand basketballer Sean Marks has had his NBA dream revived by the unfashionable Los Angeles Clippers franchise.

- EDITORIAL: TERRORISTS WIN IN FIJI: Terrorists, George Speight and his followers, have won game set and match in Fiji and the island is much the poorer for it.
