Australian trafficker Schapelle Corby back home amid media storm
Australian Schapelle Corby returned home following her deportation from Bali 12 years after her conviction for drug trafficking, as she battled through a media storm in a dramatic end to a saga that captivated her homeland.
Corby and her sister Mercedes avoided cameras when she touched down in the eastern city of Brisbane early on Sunday morning, with live television broadcasts showing a convoy of vehicles believed to be carrying them leaving the airport.
“It is with gratefulness and relief that this morning we mark Schapelle Corby’s return to Australia,” a member of her security team said, reading out a family statement at Brisbane airport.
“We would like to say thank you to Schapelle’s supporters for all the faith, love and support they have shown over the years... Priority of focus will now be on healing and moving forward.”
The beauty school dropout hit the headlines in Australia when she was arrested in 2004 at Bali airport with several kilos of hashish stashed in her surfing gear, and was jailed the following year for 20 years.

Donald Trump promises climate decision next week after G-7 stalemate
President Donald Trump said he would decide next week whether the United States would abide by the 2015 Paris agreement on cutting global carbon emissions.
His announcement came as a summit of Group of Seven (G-7) leaders in Sicily wrapped up in deadlock on the issue, with US partners voicing frustration at the President's failure to commit to the deal aimed at stemming global warming.
"I will make my final decision on the Paris Accord next week!" Trump tweeted. The US leader, concluding his first overseas trip in office, later left for home without giving the customary close-of-summit news conference.
Football: Arsenal win FA Cup after beating Chelsea 2-1
Aaron Ramsey scored a 79th-minute header to earn Arsenal a stunning 2-1 win over Double-chasing Chelsea and deliver embattled manager Arsene Wenger a record seventh FA Cup.
Wenger has been barracked by his own fans and failed to secure Champions League qualification for the first time in 20 years, but he ends the season by surpassing Aston Villa’s George Ramsey as the FA Cup’s greatest manager.
Alexis Sanchez’s early opener for Arsenal, allowed to stand despite an apparent handball, was cancelled out by Diego Costa, only for Ramsey to reply immediately with the second FA Cup-winning goal of his career.
Formula One: Raikkonen takes Monaco pole for Ferrari ahead of Vettel
Ferrari veteran Kimi Raikkonen rolled back the years and upstaged his championship-leading team mate Sebastian Vettel to take pole position at the Monaco Formula One Grand Prix.
Vettel qualified alongside the 37-year-old Finn on the front row, with Ferrari’s pace making them clear favourites for a glamour race the Italian team last won in 2001 with Michael Schumacher.
The pole ended a nine-year drought for Raikkonen whose last was at the June 2008 French Grand Prix, 129 races ago when he was the reigning world champion and German Vettel had yet to stand on top of a Formula One podium.
