Just 67, too young.

It is 7:00.

Here is Natalia with an update.

Political opponents have warned rebel MP Geoff Shaw he's on borrowed time in Victoria's government.

The state is facing a possible constitutional crisis after he'd threatened to pull his support from Premier Denis Napthine's government.

It backfired when Labor pushed to have Shaw removed from parliament.

While I'm Premier, Mr Shaw's wrongful behaviour will be dealt with and will be dealt with appropriately, strongly and effectively.

The matter will come to head when parliament resumes on Tuesday.

Prime Minister Tony Abbott has met Indonesia's President for the first time since last year's spying row.

Seven News political reporter Tim Lester has more from Canberra.

Tim, were the talks productive?

Morning, Morning, Natalia.

Yes, they appear to have been productive and achieved just what Tony Abbott would have wanted at this stage with a damaged, but important relationship, given an appearance that all is pretty much well.

Though not entirely resolved.

The two leaders spoke for 45 minutes on Batam island, Indonesian territory, just off Singapore after their meeting, they spoke to the media and explained pretty much how they see the relationship being back on track.

Yes, there have been a couple of issues between our countries over the last few months, but I am confident that they are well on the way to resolution.

TRANSLATION: Our spirit is to find a solution, the best solution possible and the widest solution so that we may overcome any challenges.

The main challenge at the moment for the two leaders remains, including a memorandum of understanding on how we deal, between the two countries, on Intel.

The President Yudhoyono wants that completed by August.

The Prime Minister Abbott has signalled that is likely to be the case, but it is not yet completed.

Prime Minister Abbott this morning flying to Europe for the second leg of his international trip and visits to Canada and the United States remain, Natalia.

OK.

Thank you for the update, Tim.

Rolf Harris's older brother and manager, Bruce, has denied pressuring a witness in the star's child sex abuse trial.

Bruce Harris also dismissed claims by Australian woman Tonya Lee that Rolf groped her more than 20 times.

He gave evidence via video link - saying he called Kathy Henkel, the director of the youth theatre that originally sent Ms Lee to London for work.

He maintained Ms Henkel would have witnessed Rolf's advances if they happened during the tour.

Detectives plan to extradite a man from New South Wales to Queensland after he was found with a stash of counterfeit money believed to be linked to bikie gangs.

Sunrise correspondent Michelle Tapper joins us from Brisbane.

Michelle, where was this haul of cash found?

Good morning, Natalia.

Good morning, Natalia.

The 48-year-old man, named Shane Owen, was found with about $2 million worth of counterfeit money.

He was arrested down near Wollongong.

He will be extradited back to Queensland.

Police had him under surveillance for about five months.

It is believed he has links to bikie gangs, both here in Queensland and also in NSW.

Police also raided a property up in Mission Beach in North Queensland and in a storage shed they allegedly found $1.

6 million of assets, believed to be involved - sorry, believed to be related to bikie criminal activity.

Police found jet skis, motor homes, cars, drugs and weapons in the storage shed.

They also plan to sell off the property and it is believed the haul is worth allegedly $4 million.

OK.

Thank you, Michelle, for bringing us up-to-date on that one.

A man says he's the victim of a hoax after being arrested during a major police operation in Sydney's south.

Heavily armed officers surrounded Matthew McGrath's home after emergency services were called to a shooting at his address.

It's believed he's a victim of what's called swatting, an online trend where points are awarded to gamers for the biggest disturbance caused.

I was unaware of the terminology 'swatting' until this morning but in simple terms, it's a hoax call.

In California, hoaxers foot the bill for the entire police operation - which can cost thousands.

The search for this hacker continues.

Security is tight in Tiananmen Square this morning 25 years on from the massacre of hundreds of students.

They were protesting for democracy when they were gunned down by soldiers from their own military in 1989.

The final death toll still isn't known.

The only place in China where vigils marking the anniversary are allowed to take place is Hong Kong.

CNN's Anna Coren has joined the crowd at a candlelight vigil in the city.

OThe Chinese regime may refuse to acknowledge the Tiananmen Square crack down the people of Hong Kong are refusing to forget.

25 years after the bloody massacre.

Well, as you can see, tens of thousands of people, possibly as many as 200,000, according to organisers, have gathered here at Victoria Park for this candlelight vigil.

They are here to commemorate the death of hundreds, if not thousands, who died on that fateful day on 4 June, 1989.

Of course, Hong Kong is the only place in China where people can gather and remember the massacre.

From the people that I have spoken to, they believe it is their responsibility to remember this tragic heart of China's history and to remind the communist regime that the people of Hong Kong and mainland China will never forget.

Every year people should remember this date and no matter how much economic development and how rich people in China become, money does not bring back the victims.

Ironically, the message of freedom, democracy, human rights and an end to corruption that protesters were calling for 25 years ago, is what the majority of people in China want today and while people on the mainland cannot take to the streets and voice their dissent, the people of Hong Kong are hoping their
