Child allegedly killed by soldiers

Reports say the child was trying to cross the road when the vehicle hit her, killing her instantly.

While police are still investigating the matter, the soldier who was driving the vehicle is yet to be arrested and charged.

It is believed the soldiers are from the Supply Company of the Force Support Battalion of Murray Barracks, currently engaged to assist with relief efforts in the earthquake stricken areas.

Children exposed to CT scans face increased risk of developing cancer

CT scans are used by doctors to get to the core of a problem by creating a 3D image of the most inaccessible nooks of the body.

But the beams of ionising radiation can cause cellular damage.

A fresh analysis of 2013 research is being presented by researchers from the University of Melbourne at the World Congress of Public Health in Melbourne.

They said the radiation risk was much greater than previously acknowledged.

The results indicated that most of the excess cancers occurring more than two years after a CT scan were caused by radiation from the scan.
