Default Unable to get multiple matches

Dear friends,

 I am writing following regex: (http\:\/\/news.*\&amp\;url\=)

to extract 2 matches from:

 <url>http://news.thirdparty.com/intl/en_us/images/news_res.gif</url><link>http://news.thirdparty.com/</link></image><item><title>State Department - Hindu</title><link>http://news.thirdparty.com/news/url?sa=T&amp;ct=us/0-0&amp;fd=R&amp;url=http://www.hindu.com/thehindu/holnus/000200810090926.htm&amp;cid=1253751878&amp;ei=5LXt SOjOAqGO6AP9yby5Ag&amp;usg=AFQjCNGAkpKActP6yAiup4V QxtkMZrEbjA</link><pubDate>Thu, 09 Oct 2008 03:51:34 GMT</pubDate>&lt;a href="http://news.thirdparty.com/news/url?sa=T&amp;ct=us/0-0&amp;fd=R&amp;url=http://www.hindu.com/thehindu/holnus/000200810090926.htm&amp;cid=1253751878&amp;ei=5LXt SOjOAqGO6AP9yby5Ag&amp;usg=AFQjCNGAkpKActP6yAiup4V QxtkMZrEbjA"&gt;

But it is giving one match. Please guide me.

Well, you don't show the code you are using to extract the matches. You don't even say what language you are using.

So it's tough to guess. It might be as simple as you forgetting to specify "global" to the regexp search.
