The Evening Post

The Evening Post is dominated by coverage of East Timor. The main story
carries the headline "There will be a massacre", which is what many
westerners trapped in Dili are saying. The report also says that the UN has
delayed a decision to evacuate. The accompanyine photo story depicts a
newly born baby in the beseiged UN compound in Dili and asks 'who will save
him now'.

Also on front page there is coverage of Scott Watson murder trial. Justice
Heron has told the jury in his summing up that they must not assume Watson
is guilty due to his not testifying.


An investigation into the Wellington City Council's email service after
confidential emails were publicly revealed, has found the service is secure
if those receiving email remember to log off their machines.

The editorial says the crisis in East Timor shows how bare our defence
forces have become.

The business section leads with a report that Brierley is leaving
Wellington for Singapore and is launching a share buy-back.

In sports, claims by former All Black Coach Laurie Mains that leading NZ
rugby players used drugs have been rubbished. David Rutherford is to be the
new CEO of NZ Rugby Union.
