All the news you need to know this Friday morning.

Malcolm Turnbull's political fate will soon be sealed, and the country's Prime Minister decided. 

Turnbull is waiting for proof that he has lost a majority of support from his colleagues before he calls another vote at a partyroom meeting that would go ahead at midday today.

The aspirations of Peter Dutton, Julie Bishop and Scott Morrison hang in the balance of advice from the Solicitor-General over whether Dutton is eligible to sit in Parliament. Overnight, he released new legal advice of his own that he says proves his business interests do not put him in breach of Section 44 of the Constitution.

Former NRL star Lance Thompson has died, aged 40.

Ten News understands police were called to his Cronulla unit about 9pm on Thursday night. His cause of death is unknown but police say it was not suspicious.

Queensland Police have issued an amber alert for a two-year-old boy who was taken from a medical facility in South Brisbane on Thursday night. 

A man and a woman were seen putting the boy into a maroon 2005 Ford Falcon and driving away before he was seen by doctors.

Two people have been killed and a third badly injured in a knife attack in a suburb west of Paris, authorities have confirmed.

French Interior Minister Gerard Collmb said a 36-year-old man fatally stabbed his mother and sister in broad daylight in the suburb of Trappes, seriously wounding another person.

He was shot dead by police when he ran towards them in a threatening manner, the minister said. While known for "advocating terrorism", he said the attacker had psychiatric problems, and that counter-terrorism prosecutors were at this stage following, but not leading,  investigations.
