Gillard Ousted as Australian Prime Minister

"Australia's first female prime minister, Julia Gillard, has been sacked by her party and replaced by the man she ousted three years ago," the Guardian reports.

"After an unprecedented day of political bloodletting in Canberra, Kevin Rudd beat Gillard to become Labor party leader in a ballot of MPs by a margin of 57 to 45. It is only the second time a sitting Australian prime minister has been removed from office by their party; Rudd's removal was the first."

The Sydney Morning Herald has the latest.
