    SMOOTH CRIMINAL SAYS HE AIN'T NO KINGPIN



    Jeremy Meeks, who found fame for having the hottest ever mugshot, has broken his silence saying I'm not a "kingpin."

    The thirty year old's dreamy blue eyes and chiseled jawline went viral last week when California's Stockton Police Department posted the picture online.

    Meeks, who is married with a three year old son, says his wife has informed him of his new found dreamboat status. 

    He has told a California news network  "I appreciate (the attention) but I just want you to know this is not me, I'm not some kingpin."

    Meeks has been charged with illegal possession of firearms or ammunition, carrying a loaded weapon in public and street gang activity. 

    He has previously spent nine years behind bars for "grand theft." 

    Bail has been posted at $900,000.

    Australian death toll rises in the MH 17 disaster.




    Tony Abbott says it could be some time before the bodies of the 36 Australians killed on the ill-fated MH 17 flights are returned home

    The PM says while the site is secured and investigations continue, it could take weeks, rather than days to repatriate the bodies.

    The Australian death toll rose to 36 after it was discovered eight permanent residents had been travelling on overseas passports

    Meantime monitoring teams say they are still being denied full access to the crash site

    There's also reports of looting, with wallets, mobile phones and other valuable items missing from around the area where the jet crashed

    The Prime Minister and Governor General will attend a mass at St Mary's cathedral in Sydney, while other services will be held across the country today to remember the victims

    GUILTY OF MANSLAUGHTER



    Oscar Pistorious has been found guilty of culpable after the shooting death of model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. 

    The verdict comes a day after South African Judge Thokozile Masipa found the Bladerunner not guilty of premeditated murder.

    Masipa said the celebrity amputee's actions were negligent.

    "The accused acted negligently when he fired shots into the toilet door knowing there was someone behind the door. A reasonable person would have foreseen the possibility that the person behind the door might have been killed by the shots."

    Steenkamp was killed on Valentine's Day in 2013. 

    Pistorious has also been found guilty of firing a loaded weapon in a Johannesburg restaurant.

    AUSTRALIA TO BEGIN AIR STRIKES



    Australia will begin bombing raids in Iraq targetting terrorist group the Islamic State. 

    The National Security Council met in Canberra this morning to sign off on the raids after receiving clearance from the Iraqi Government. 
    ISIL must be disrupted and degraded at home and abroad.

    "Today cabinet has authorised Australian airstrikes in Iraq at the request of the Iraqi Government," said Prime Minister Tony Abbott. 

    Mr Abbott says the mission is in Australia's best interests.

    "It an essentially humanitarian mission, yes it is a combat deployment but it is an essentially humanitarian mission to protect the people of Iraq and ultimately the people of Australia from the murderous rage of the ISIL death cult."
    Australian Special Forces soldiers will also be moved in to Iraq assisting local forces pending final legal documentation. 

    Air Chief Marshall Mark Binskin said the mission is imminent "over the coming days I won't be specific."

    Mr Abbott stressed Australia was not going to war.

    "I know that you'd love that headline but it's strictly not accurate.

    We we are engaged in combat operations. But these are combat operations against an insurgency in support of the legitimate government of Iraq."

    Jack Bruce, the composer, singer and multi-instrumentalist, has died of liver disease, aged 71.


    Bruce was most famous for his work with guitarist Eric Clapton and drummer Ginger Baker in legendary 1960s group Cream.
    His death was announced on his official website.

    Cream sold 35 million albums in just over two years and were awarded the world's first ever platinum disc for their LP Wheels of Fire.
    Bruce wrote and sang most of the songs, including I Feel Free, White Room, Politician and perhaps the world's most performed guitar riff, in Sunshine Of Your Love.

    Cream split in November 1968 at the height of their popularity.
    Bruce felt that he had strayed too far from his ideals and wanted to re-discover his musical and social roots.
