 The talks are indeed underway to try to resolve the conflict in the Ivory Coast. The country’s President Laurent Gbagbo says his army is negotiating a ceasefire, but he’d told French TV he’s not ready to surrender. Early reports said he was in the brink1 of standing2 down.

 
Radioactive iodine3 7.5 million times above the legal limit has been found in seawater near Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant. Radioactive cesium, which is extremely toxic4, has also been found in fish for the first time. Authorities have begun checking school playgrounds near the plant for radiation. More than 1,400 schools outside the exclusion5 zone will be checked.
 
The Federal Government has flagged it may introduce a mandatory6 deadline for insurance claims if the industry doesn’t lift its gain. Assistant Treasurer7 Bill Shorten has met Ipswich residents who are extremely angry about delays in processing their claims from the floods. Mr Shorten says it’s unacceptable that insurers are still dragging their feet 11 weeks after those floods.
 
The Federal Opposition8 says the resignation of a top executive from the National Broadband Network is yet another sign of problems with the multi-billion dollar project. NBN Co’s construction chief Patrick Flannigan quit just days after the company ended negotiations9 with other firms to build the network, saying their quotes were massively overpriced. Opposition Communications spokesman Malcolm Turnbull says the circumstances of Mr Flannigan’s departure are troubling.
