- HOPE FOR RUSSIAN SAILORS: A diving bell may be the last hope for the Russian sailors trapped in the Kursk, a nuclear powered submarine stuck on the Barrents Sea bed in the Arctic Circle. The diving bell could carry 10 to 15 people to the surface at a time, the RIA news agency said.

- MURDER VICTIM’S HUSBAND SPEAKS OUT: The husband of murdered Auckland woman Joanne McCarthy believes there are four people who know what happened at the couple’s Whangaparoa home on the morning of November 12, 1998. He says he still does not know why Travis Burns, who was found guilty of Mrs McCarthy’s murder yesterday, bludgeoned her to death. Mr Burns denies he was even at the couple’s home that morning.
