Australia PM Tony Abbott survives confidence vote
Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott has survived a party confidence vote on his leadership.
Liberal Party MPs voted by 61 to 39 not to open up his position to challengers.
The leadership test, initiated by a backbencher on Friday, came after a series of policy mis-steps by Mr Abbott that saw his popularity tumble.
