US/Chinese Diplomatic Standoff – Trans-Tasman Bum Deal – HIV Positive Teacher admits Abuse – Patty Burton – Tiger To NZ

- US/CHINESE DIPLOMATIC STANDOFF: America is demanding the return of a crippled spy plane on Chinese land and China is demanding an apology, because they say the US plane deliberately rammed a Chinese fighter jet and violated Chinese air space. Tonight the chances of the plane or its crew going anywhere look slim. China says it may yet put the crew on trial for violating its airspace and killing one of their pilots. The Pentagon says the Chinese are clearly mining a bonanza of spy gear found on the plane that is used to monitor China. The Chinese say the US crew are under protective custody.

- PATTY BURTON: Queenstown farewelled Patty Burton, who was killed by her 20-year-old son, Mark, today.

- TIGER TO NZ: Bid to get Tiger Woods to play in New Zealand goes on. A deadline to come up with the funds has been extended until the middle of this month. Woods is non-committal, but his Kiwi caddy is positive he will come.
