We’ve rounded up all the latest stories from Australia and around the world – so you don’t have to go searching.
1. Brisbane dad dies after alleged one punch attack by his son.
A Brisbane man has died in hospital after allegedly being punched in the mouth by his son.
Doctors were unable to save Mark English, 53, who was injured after an alleged tussle in Brisbane’s CBD on Monday afternoon, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
According to court documents, he was knocked out and fell backwards, smashing his head on the footpath opposite central train station around 4pm.
His son, Morgan Isles-English, 25, appeared in court yesterday charged with one count of causing grievous bodily harm.
He reportedley yelled “I love you Mum” from the glass walls of the prisoner dock and sobbed loudly, with his lawyer calling for the case to be adjourned.
“I love you too,” she mouthed back.
2. All the election latest: Coalition edges ahead of Labor in seat count, as PM Turnbull accepts responsibility for shock result.
The ABC’S trusted election analyst Antony Green has projected Coalition wins in two key undecided seats, Grey in South Australia and Petrie in Brisbane’s northern suburbs.
Counting finally resumed in earnest yesterday as Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull conceded the shambolic election outcome for the Coalition rested on his shoulders.
Mr Turnbull also sought to blame the Government’s poor showing in the campaign on Labor’s “Mediscare” campaign, claiming it tricked people into voting for Labor, the ABC reports.
“We have work to do and we are committed to that, that is a very clear lesson,” he said.
“There is no doubt that Labor cynically abused the trust of Australians by lying to them about this and it is something for all of us, politicians and the media, to contemplate.
“What we have to recognise is many Australians were troubled by it, believed it or at least had anxieties raised with it.”
For now, the Liberal party’s hard right appears to be standing behind the Prime Minister, with key figures like Immigration Minister Peter Dutton offering their support for his leadership.
The Australian Electoral Commission tally has Labor on 71 seats, the Coalition on 70, others with 5, and a further 4 seats undecided. But there has been criticism of the official tally, with the ABC so far awarding just 67 seats to Labor and 70 to the Coalition – leaving eight seats in doubt.
To govern outright 76 seats are required, and it is not likely that either major party will meet that target.
Counting continues today, with 80 per cent of votes already counted.
