The Dominion

RISKY MISSION: Prime Minister Jenny Shipley said the UN mission to East Timor would be the riskiest mission in recent years.

ATTEMPTED ABDUCTION: A man tried to abduct a seven year old Porirua girl on her way to school yesterday, just after 8.30am. The man was wearing a white shirt, bootleg pants and black gumboots. He was possibly balding but with long hair at the back, with white stubble on his chin. He was driving a dirty blue vehicle. Police are concerned about similarities to an incident a fortnight ago outside a school in Waitangirua. Police are also checking links to three other recent incidents in Karori, Northland and Alicetown.

TREATY OFF: Indonesia has announced it was breaking off a security treaty with Australia which has harshly criticised Indonesia for its handling of the East Timor crisis.

ANSETT: Ansett is still flying less than half its regular flights due to a pilot lockout.

IMF REPORT: Bill English says an IMF report shows New Zealand’s economy is on track for sound future growth.

TOURISM: The Tourism Board are keen to cash in on pictures of US President in New Zealand – playing golf and being welcomed with a hongi – and use them to promote the country.

KRONFELD: Political scientist Nigel Roberts says the outcome of the Rugby World Cup will be influential as to when the election is held, with the injury to Josh Kronfeld posing difficulties.
