Detective Acting Senior Sergeant David Richardson said police arrested a man, 43, in Undoolya Rd, Alice Springs, on Wednesday night. A visitor to a complex of units in Bloomfield St had called police after finding the womans body in her flat on Wednesday. When the police arrived they found the 36-year-old woman dead with multiple stab wounds. Two members of the major crime unit and a forensic scientist from Darwin flew to Alice Springs yesterday to help with the investigations. At this stage police are still taking statements and interviewing witnesses in what is a complex investigation, Sen Sgt Richardson said. We are still appealing to anyone who may have been in the area of the units at 111 Bloomfield St and noticed any suspicious activity in the last few days to come forward. Anyone with information should call police on 131 444 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. Lang search on POLICE will continue searching off the Top End coast for a convicted pedophile who has been missing since late October. Darwin watch commander Craig Ryan said police were searching for the man around the Vernon Islands and Melville Island from the south central tip of Cape Gambier to the central east coast area of Tinganoo Bay. Kenneth Roy Langs 12m catamaran Screamer was spotted beached in mangroves in Chambers Bay 100km northeast of Darwin on Tuesday. Lang was the first pedophile to be convicted for sending child pornography from his mobile phone in 2008. New day to mark raids By DAVID WOOD A NEW national day of observance Bombing of Darwin Day will be proposed by Prime Minister Julia Gillard today. Next year marks the 70th anniversary of the surprise Japanese attack on Darwin on February 19, 1942. The two initial attacks on that day killed at least 243 people and wounded up to 400. They were the first of 64 raids on the Territory over 18 months in which civic and military buildings, boats and aircraft were destroyed. The day will acknowledge the first attack on Darwin and subsequent raids on it and other northern Australian towns in World War II. The Federal Government will recommend to the Governor-General that February 19 be proclaimed Bombing of Darwin Day. The anniversary of the first attack will join Anzac Day and Remembrance Day as days of reflection for those who served at war for Australia. Other towns in Australias north also bombed by the Japanese included Broome, where as many as 100 people died, Wyndham, Derby, Katherine, Townsville, Port Hedland and Cairns. The Federal Government is putting up $330,000 to support the commemorations for the 70th anniversary. In the wake of the initial raids, and believing that invasion by the Japanese was imminent, Darwins population began heading to Adelaide River and the train that would take them south. About half of the citys civilian population left, as well as a great many servicemen from the RAAF base. Three days after the attack 278 servicemen were still missing. Sustained attackswiped out defences AT LEAST 243 people died and up to 400 were wounded during the initial two attacks on Darwin, including civilians, post office workers and service personnel fromAustralia and the United States. The attacks were planned and led by the commander responsible for the attack on Pearl Harbour 10 weeks earlier, naval Commander Mitsuo Fuchida. They involved 54 land-based bombers and 188 attack aircraft launched from aircraftcarriers in the Timor Sea. The first attack, which lasted about 40 minutes, began just before 10am with heavy bombers attacking the harbour and town; and dive bombers accompan ied by Zero fighters attacking harbour ships, the military and civil aerodromes, and the hospital at Berrimah. The second attack was an hour later, with the bombing of the Royal Australian Air Force base at Parap, which lasted for 20-25minutes. The Japanese attacked Darwin by air 64 times up to November 1943.
