Monday, July 30 in the news....

  • An Iraqi man has been abducted, bashed with a weapon and robbed while holidaying in Melbourne's north. He was released a short time later in the same street and staggered to the house where he is staying. He was all smiles and so was his family because the abductors didn't take his head.

  • In the US, athletic shoe and sportswear manufacturers Nike Inc. and Reebok said on Friday they were suspending sales of products endorsed by Michael Vick following accusations the National Football League star had sponsored a dog-fighting operation. Spokesmen for the companies said it wouldn't have happened if he sponsored their child labour operations instead.
