Re the Abbott statement, note that it was an announcement to Parliament rather than a press conference. Beyond his announcement to the House of Representatives, the Australian Government has said nothing to the media about it yet.
AMSA presser starts in 5 minutes.
People not in Australia, do the Channel Nine or NZ
links posted above work? I didn't realise that ABC was only available in Australia.
For people in other countries, despite the very short lead-in time I would expect that at the very least New Limited news sources (Sky News UK, Fox News etc) will be able to cover it because Sky News Australia will have their people on the ground; and ABC and BBC often swap feed so BBC News 24 will probably carry it as well. CNN, Al-Jazeera, France 24 etc will probably pay for feed from ABC as well, so must local 24 hour news sources will probably pick it up.

Aussies, when does Question Time finish? Surely any real update will be independent of this, right?
ABC cut off Question Time at 15:20, but off the top of my head it finishes at 15:30
