This is what an Israeli airstrike looks like from the ground

An Israeli airstrike was about to unfold. The target: a grey, concrete building of moderate height in the heart of Gaza City. Children gathered on balconies. Young men congregated at an intersection. Others placed bricks and tyres blocking off a section of the street that ran past the building. A man in a tank top and shorts served as a traffic officer, directing vehicles to take a detour. Cars stopped. More people stepped out, their eyes glued to the ill-fated building.

'Why does he have to be abandoned?': Australian parents desert Thai surrogate mother

The Thai surrogate mother of a Down Syndrome baby who was abandoned by his Australian parents says she has been left to provide for the child who also suffers from a life-threatening heart condition.

In an exclusive interview with the ABC's Samantha Hawley, Gammy's mother Pattaramon Chanbua described how she loves the baby boy as if he was her own, but cannot afford the medical treatment he needs.

The 21-year-old impoverished mother fell pregnant with twins but the Australian parents abandoned Gammy and only took his healthy sister home with them.

"Why does he have to be abandoned while the other baby has it easy? ... I feel sorry for him. I don't know what to do," she told the ABC.

Medicinal cannabis trial gets green light on Norfolk Island

The Tasmanian company that applied to trial medicinal cannabis in the state has been given the go-ahead elsewhere.

Norfolk Island has given Tasman Health Cannabinoids (THC) approval to grow medical cannabis.

"We are open for investment, we are open for business on Norfolk Island," the island's Health Minister Robin Adams said.

THC had wanted to conduct its trial in Tasmania, with the view to it becoming a multi-billion-dollar export industry.

The Tasmanian Government knocked them back and Mr Adams said Norfolk Island leapt at the chance.
