Princess Diana and Naomi Campbell watched as the priest conducted the memorial service in Milan's Cathedral on Tuesday. Versace's sister Donatella and brother Santo, who have vowed to carry on Gianni's empire, were overcome by grief as the cathedral filled with song. Versace's murder on the steps of his Miami mansion last Tuesday sent shockwaves through the fashion world. Those who mourned his death were still struck with disbelief. As the star-studded congregation descended the cathedral, a sombre mood hung over the city of Milan and the watching fashion world.

So the Prime Minister of Turkey was not given that opportunity. He is after all the Prime Minister of Turkey and he wants to speak." (Question: And he was in his right to walk out and make a point?) "This is a different story. He is angry and I believe we are going to see him now." 13. Cutaway delegates ++MUTE++ STORYLINE Turkey's prime minister stalked off the stage at the World Economic Forum on Thursday after reproaching Israel's president over the devastating military offensive in Gaza. The packed audience, which included President Barack Obama's close adviser Valerie Jarrett, appeared stunned as Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Israeli President Shimon Peres raised their voices and traded accusations. Peres was passionate in his defence of Israel's 23-day offensive in Gaza, which it said targeted Gaza-rulers Hamas and aimed to stop Palestinian militant rocket fire into southern Israeli towns. As he spoke, Peres often turned toward Erdogan, who in his remarks had criticised Israel's strict blockade of the Gaza Strip. "Why did they fire rockets? There was no siege against Gaza," Peres said, raising his voice. The heated debate with Israel and Turkey at the centre was significant because of the key role Turkey has played as a moderator between Israel and Syria. Erdogan appeared to express a sense of disappointment when he recounted how he had met with the Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert just days before the offensive, and believed they were close to reaching terms for a face-to-face meeting with Syrian leaders. Obama's new Mideast envoy, George Mitchell, will be in Turkey for talks on Sunday. Erdogan was angry when a panel moderator cut off his remarks in response to an impassioned monologue by Peres defending Israel's offensive. The angry exchange followed an hour-long debate at the forum attended by world leaders in Davos. Erdogan tried to rebut Peres as the discussion was ending, asking the moderator, Washington Post columnist David Ignatius, to let him speak once more. "You killed people," Erdogan told the 85-year-old Israeli leader. "I remember the children who died on beaches." When moderator repeatedly interrupted, asking him to stop, Erdogan angrily stalked off, leaving behind fellow panelists United Nations Secretary-General Ban-Ki Moon and Arab League Secretary-General, Amr Moussa.

President Bush reacts to Obama's victory in 2008 election
 
03:51
SHOTLIST 1. US President George W. Bush walks to podium 2. SOUNDBITE: (English) George W. Bush, US President: "Good morning. Last night I had a warm conversation with president-elect Barack Obama. I congratulated him and Senator Biden on their impressive victory. I told the president-elect he could count on complete cooperation from my administration as he makes the transition to the White House. I also spoke to Senator John McCain. I congratulated him on a determined campaign that he and Governor Palin ran. The American people will always be grateful for the lifetime of service John McCain has devoted to this nation, and I know he will continue to make tremendous contributions to our country. No matter how they cast their ballots, all Americans can be proud of the history that was made yesterday. Across the country citizens voted in large numbers. They showed a watching world the vitality of American democracy and the stride we have made toward a more perfect union. They chose a president whose journey represents a triumph of the American story. A testament to hard work, optimism and faith in the enduring promise of our nation. Many of our citizens thought they would never live to see that day. This moment is especially uplifting for a generation of Americans who witnessed the struggles of civil rights with their own eyes; four decades later, see a dream fulfilled. A long campaign is ended and we move forward as a nation. Embarking on a period of change in Washington, yet there are some things that will not change. The United States government will remain vigilant in meeting its most important responsibility: protecting the American people. And the world can be certain this commitment will remain steadfast under our next commander in chief. There is important work to do in the months ahead and I will continue to conduct the people's business as long as this office remains in my trust. During this time of transition I will keep the president-elect fully informed on important decisions. When the time comes on January 20 Laura and I will return home to Texas with treasured memories of our time here, with profound gratitude for the honour of serving this amazing country. It will be a stirring sight to watch President Obama, his wife, Michelle, and their beautiful girls step through the doors of the White House. I know millions of Americans will be overcome with pride at this inspiring moment that so many have waited so long. I know Senator Obama's beloved mother and grandparents would have been thrilled to watch the child they raised ascend the steps of the Capitol and take his oath to uphold the constitution of the greatest nation on the face of the earth. Last night I extended an invitation to the president-elect and Mrs Obama to come to the White House and Laura and I are looking forward to welcoming them as soon as possible. Thank you very much." 3. Bush walks away STORYLINE: US President George W. Bush fully embraced the election of Democrat Barack Obama as his successor on Wednesday, paying stirring tribute to the election of the first U.S. black president-elect and hailing the campaign of change that led Obama to victory. Bush promised Obama his "complete cooperation" during the Democrat's 76-day transition to the White House. The president said he would keep Obama informed on all his decisions between now and January 20, and said he looked forward to the day - soon, he hopes - that Obama and his family would take him up on his offer of pre-inauguration White House visit. The defeated leader of his own party, John McCain, won accolades not nearly so glowing with Bush hailing his lifetime of service to the US.

Japan - New discoveries in paper folding
 
02:49
T/I: 10:24:08 Anything made out of paper is generally thought to be structurally weak, but with skilful folding, paper can gain unexpected strength. The Japanese art of origami, or paper folding, has long been admired for its ingenuity, but this traditional pastime is now providing the basis for the foundation of a new technology. Two years ago, Professor Hideyuki Ohtaki, a teacher in mechanical engineering at Saitama University, and his students began conducting research into paper structures. They discovered that long triangular cylinders threaded horizontally through a collection of hexagons produced a strong structure that resisted twisting -- strong enough to hold the weight of a person. A tricycle made entirely out of recycled paper, using joints made from paper cups, was among the objects built to demonstrate the strength of their chosen material. With a fire and water resistant coating, paper could be used in unique ways giving it new options for the years ahead. SHOWS: JAPAN RECENT CU flimsy pieces of paper; Paper being folded into strong structure; Strong paper taking weight of apple; Exterior of Saitama University; Interior shot of researchers in meeting; SOT Professor Hideyuki Ohtaki: "Compared to metals, paper is extremely light-weight and easy to recycle. These advantages create various possibilities for the use of strong paper structures."

President Ronald Reagan and his wife Nancy depart from the Capitol after the inauguration of George
 
01:52
(20 Jan 1989) Ronald Reagan flashed one last salute to George Bush and left the nation's capital to begin the life of an ex-president in California. Reagan, walking hand-in-hand with his wife Nancy, bid the new president and first lady Barbara Bush farewell with handshakes and kisses on the east side of the Capitol at the conclusion of his successor's inaugural ceremonies. The ex-president turned to salute Bush as Mrs. Reagan waved from the door of the aircraft. The new president returned the gesture.

Unseen belongings of legend Marilyn Monroe unveiled ++REPLAY++
 
05:03
(11 May 2012) LEADIN Never-before-seen belongings of the Hollywood legend, Marilyn Monroe, are on display in Los Angeles. The show marks the 50th anniversary of the movie star's death at the age of 36. STORYLINE: One of the world's most iconic actresses, Marilyn Monroe, is the star of a million dollar exhibition of some of her most personal belongings. It's taking place here in Hollywood, 50 years after her premature death. Over 50,000 fans from all over the world are expected to arrive to commemorate the anniversary. This exhibit is housed inside an old bank vault, and the contents inside are valuable - maybe priceless because of their association with Monroe. The Marilyn Bank Vault Collection at Ripley's Believe It Or Not is Hollywood's ultimate homage to Marilyn, remembering an era and commemorating the queen of the town. Among the many Marilyn items are a hand knitted cardigan, currently valued at USD $170,000. She wore this on her last photo shoot. These are all personal items belonging to the owner of the Ripley's company. Andrea Silverman, general manager of Ripley's Believe It Or Not says: "We have her famous sweater which was actually the last photograph that she did before her death. You're gong to see her makeup case. It took her over three hours to do her makeup. You guys have to come see all the cool stuff that we have. We have her shoes. We have her nightgown when she was married to Joe DiMaggio for her honeymoon" Personal items include a dresser top of Marilyn's cosmetics and makeup case. She was rumoured to take three hours to put on her makeup on every morning. An old Revlon nail polish bottle sits next to an Erno Laszlo face cream, lavender smelling salts, and an Elizabeth Arden eyeshadow. This black lingerie was worn by Marilyn for baseball legend Joe DiMaggio on their wedding night. Slippers with glass and white faux fur straps were valued 10 years ago at over USD $100,000. Also on display is a USD $12,000 lace nightcap as well as a bathing suit that was quite scandalous at the time for being a midriff baring two piece, in US size 16. A polka dot dress on show is known as the willpower dress because it took sheer willpower in the 50s to wear a strapless dress. Head scarves on display were worn to shield herself from the paparazzi. Jeanne Wolf, a veteran Hollywood journalist says: "We loved and adored her and still do. There's something about her very strong. You know she came form utter poverty. She should have had absolutely no exceptions in life and rose to be well arguably the most famous movie star in the world. There was something about her, that no one looked like her. No one reminded you of her. She invented herself. She created herself and in the midst of all of that, there was something so utterly exposed and fragile about her." Her dresses on display showcase her well documented size fluctuations. Going from 37-23-34 and a US size two when she began her career to 38-23-36 in 1962 - a US size 12. A larger than life poster shows her famous dress blowing scene from the movie "The Seven Year Itch." There are 40 pairs of shoes on display, including a pair of red Salvatore Ferragamo shoes which he made just for her. There is a copy of Marilyn's footprints in cement that were given personally to Sid Grauman, the owner of the famed Grauman's Chinese Theatre. They were made in 1953 on the night of the premiere of the classic film 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes'. A lock of her hair as a child sits in a drawer for tourists to get a glimpse of. It is reported she experimented with 10 different blonde shades before deciding on her legendary platinum colour. Wolf says people will like the feeling of being inside the vault to see her things.

German FM makes impassioned plea for peace

1. Wide shot of audience 2. German Defence Joschka Fischer (clapping earlier to Rumsfeld's speech) 3. SOUNDBITE: (German) German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer: "We haven't even finished the first job, we by far haven't finished the job of fighting terrorism and the al Qaeda network. Who of you pretends to know that we will not get a blow which is not from Saddam Hussein but from the unfinished terrorism network? That's why I ask this critical question: why these priorities? Why do this now?" 4. Close up of US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld 5. SOUNDBITE: (German/ English) German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer: "We owe the Americans our democracy. They are very important for stability and peace especially. We Germans would never have been able to free ourselves from the Nazi regime without America. The Americans allowed us to build up our democracy but in this democracy my generation has learnt... (switches to English) You have to make the case, and to make the case in a democracy you have to be convinced yourself, and excuse me I am not convinced, this is my problem and I cannot go to the public and say, well let's go to war because there are reasons and so on, and I don't believe in that." 6. Mid shot of Fischer at podium looking towards Rumsfeld in audience 7. Wide shot of delegates at security conference STORYLINE: German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer made an impassioned plea for patience with Iraq on Saturday and said the German public sees no justification for going to war. Fischer responded to an earlier pro-war speech by Rumsfeld, stating that diplomatic efforts to secure Iraq's disarmament had not been exhausted and it was premature to start military moves. The Iraq crisis and the divisions it has caused among traditional allies dominated the annual conference in Munich where dozens of ministers and military and defence experts from Europe, North America and Asia have gathered. Fischer told the conference that Germany would not support a "military build up" ahead of the next UN Security Council session on February when chief weapons inspector Hans Blix is due to present a new report. Fischer also said that Germany would respect its commitments to Turkey under the NATO treaty. NATO has to decide by Monday whether to order its military experts to plan for the deployment of early warning planes, missile defence batteries and specialized units to Turkey. France, Germany and Belgium have held up the NATO planning for three weeks, arguing that it could undermine UN efforts to avert a war. Anxious alliance officials fear continued refusal could do permanent damage to NATO.

Former terrorism advisor Richard Clarke testifies on 9/11

1. Richard Clarke walking into hearing room 2. Clarke sitting down at witness table, pan over to commission members 3. Clarke raises his right hand and takes oath 4. Commission Chair Thomas Kean 5. SOUNDBITE: (English) Richard Clarke, Former White House Counter-terrorism Adviser "I also welcome the hearings because it is finally a forum where I can apologise to the loved ones of the victims of 9-11. To them who are here in the room, to those who are watching on television, your government failed you. Those entrusted with protecting you failed you, and I failed you. We tried hard, but that doesn't matter because we failed. And for that failure, I would ask, once all the facts are out, for your understanding and your forgiveness." 6. Various of hearing 7. SOUNDBITE: (English) Timothy Roemer, 9/11 Commission Member "How high a priority was fighting al-Qaida in the Bush administration?" 8. SOUNDBITE: (English) Richard Clarke, Former White House Counter-terrorism Adviser "I believe the Bush administration, in the first eight months, considered terrorism an important issue but not an urgent issue." 9. Wide shots of hearing 10. SOUNDBITE: (English) John Lehman, 9/11 Commission Member "The inconsistency between what your promoters are putting out and what you said as late as August 05, you've got a real credibility problem. And because of my real genuine, long-term admiration for you, I hope you resolve that credibility problem, because I hate to see you become totally shoved to one side during a presidential campaign as an active partisan selling a book." 11. SOUNDBITE: (English) Richard Clarke, Former White House Counter-terrorism Adviser "I've been accused of being a member of John Kerry's campaign team several times this week, including by the White House. The White House has said that my book is an audition for a high level position in the Kerry campaign. So let me say here as I am under oath, that I will not accept any position in the Kerry administration should there be one, on the record, under oath." 12. Mid shot of hearing 13. SOUNDBITE: (English) Richard Clarke, Former White House Counter-terrorism Adviser "In the 15 hours of testimony, no one asked me what I thought about the president's invasion of Iraq. And the reason I am strident in my criticism of the president of the United States is because by invading Iraq - something I was not asked about by the commission, something I chose to write a lot about in the book - by invading Iraq, the president of the United States has greatly undermined the war on terrorism." 14. Wide pan of hearing STORYLINE: The US government's former top counterterrorism adviser apologised to the families of September 11 victims on Wednesday, saying "your government failed you." Richard Clarke made the comments just before testifying before a bipartisan commission investigating the September 11, 2001, attacks. It was the second day of hearings with Bush and Clinton administration officials as the commission tried to determine what went wrong in the efforts to stop al-Qaida before the 9/11 attacks. Clarke, who has received much attention in recent days for the release of his book, which is highly critical of the Bush administration for its response to al-Qaida, delivered a sharp attack against President Bush and his top advisers. He said although he continued to describe terrorism as an urgent problem, the Bush administration never treated it that way. In comparison, Clarke said the Clinton administration had "no higher priority" than combating terror. Clarke said he was so frustrated by the Bush team's lack of urgency that he asked to be reassigned.

Photograph of Juan Lopez carried during the funeral by one of his relatives 21. Various of Marines escorting the funerary chariot 22. Mariachis escorting the coffin STORYLINE Mexican soldiers carrying automatic weapons interrupted the U.S. Independence Day funeral of a U.S. Marine and demanded that the Marine honour guard give up ceremonial replicas of rifles they carried. A contingent of Marines was participating in the funeral of Juan Lopez, who was killed in an ambush in Ramadi, west of Baghdad, on June 21. Arrangements originally were made to give a traditional 21-gun salute during the ceremony in Lopez's home town in Mexico. But Mexico's Secretary of Defence turned down the request last week, saying the salute violated constitutional measures preventing foreign soldiers from bearing arms on Mexican soil. Problems began moments after the start when four U.S. Marines marched solemnly to the grave carrying an American flag and the colours of the Marine Corps. Two of the men had rifles that looked real, but could not be fired, strapped to their backs. Four Mexican soldiers blocked their path, asking the four Marines and six others who had served as pallbearers to return to the car that had brought them to the funeral. Several minutes of discussions by soldiers from both countries continued until a trumpet player began a rendition of taps and the funeral continued, despite the objections of the Mexican troops. When the ceremony was complete, all the Marines on hand returned to a U.S. Embassy vehicle and waited. Fourteen Mexican soldiers arrived to guard the premises. About 40 minutes later, apparently under orders from a superior officer, the Mexican soldiers allowed the van to leave. Mexican soldiers at the funeral refused to comment, but U.S. Embassy spokesman Jim Dickmeyer said they likely saw the rifle replicas and mistakenly thought the Marines were planning to fire a salute anyway. When U.S. Marines loaded Lopez's gray coffin onto a hearse earlier in the afternoon, a swell of local residents poured through the street and marched with the Lopez family past shabby brick homes. Lopez's death left residents grappling with how to best honour the 22-year-old who gave his life in a conflict most Mexicans don't believe in.

President's address to the nation on the Columbia shuttle disaster
 
03:23
1. SOUNDBITE: (English) George W.Bush, US President "My fellow Americans, this day has brought terrible news and great sadness to our country. At nine o'clock this morning, mission control in Houston, lost contact with space shuttle Columbia. A short time later debris was seen falling from the skies above Texas. The Columbia is lost. There are no survivors. On board was a crew of seven, Colonel Rick Husband, Lieutenant Colonel Michael Anderson, Commander Laurel Clark, Captain David Brown, Commander William McCool, Dr Kalpana Chawla and Ilan Ramon, a colonel in the Israeli air force. These men and women assumed great risk in the service to all humanity in an age when space flight has come to seem almost routine, it is easy to overlook the dangers of travel by rocket and the difficulties of navigating the fierce outer atmosphere of the earth. These astronauts knew the dangers and they faced them willingly, knowing they had a high and noble purpose in life. Because of their courage and daring and idealism, we will miss them all the more. All Americans today are thinking as well of the families of these men and women who have been given this sudden shock and grief. You are not alone, our entire nation grieves with you and those you loved will always have the respect and gratitude of this country. The cause of which they died will continue. Mankind was led into the darkness beyond our world with the inspiration of discovery and the longing to understand. Our journey into space will go on. In the skies today we saw destruction and tragedy, yet further than we can see there is comfort and hope. In the words of the prophet Isaiah 'Lift your eyes and look to the heavens. Who created all these? He who brings out the starry hosts one by one and calls them each by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength not one of them is missing'. The same creator who named the stars also knows the names of the seven souls we mourn today. The crew of the shuttle Columbia did not return safely to earth, yet we can pray that all are safely home. May God bless the grieving families and may God continue to bless America." STORYLINE: President George W. Bush sadly informed the American people on Saturday of the worst space tragedy in 17 years, saying "The Columbia's lost. There are no survivors." Bush said the loss of the space shuttle and its seven astronauts "brought terrible news and great sadness to our country." Addressing the nation from the Cabinet Room, Bush said, "The Columbia is lost." Before his remarks, he telephoned the families of the astronauts to console them. "These men and women assumed great risk in the service to all humanity," the president said. The astronauts knew the dangers and they faced them willingly," he said in brief remarks after returning to the White House from a weekend at Camp David, Maryland. Flanked by two flags, Bush spoke slowly, his voice falling almost to a whisper at some points, his brows furrowed and his mouth downturned. Earlier, NASA Administrator Sean O'Keefe, announcing the shuttle's demise, said he had spoken with Bush and the president had offered his "full and immediate support" to determine what had gone wrong and what to do next. O'Keefe spoke at a news conference in Cape Canaveral, Florence. Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge coordinated the government response. Under an executive order signed recently by Bush, Ridge is the coordinator of all domestic incidents of this magnitude, even when terrorism is not suspected. "There is no information at this time that this was a terrorist incident," said Gordon Johndroe, spokesman for the Homeland Security Department. He said, "Obviously the investigation is just beginning, but that is the information we have now."

Mandla Mandela, 32, was draped in a lion skin, the symbol of royalty, and officially installed as head of the Mvezo Traditional Council by the king of the AbaThembu, Zwelibanzi Dalindyebo, one of six kings of the Xhosa people. The ceremony took place in front of hundreds of well wishers, including tribal royalty from across the country, most of them clad in brightly coloured traditional dress and beaded headdresses. It was the first time in nearly 70 years that a member of Mandela's family from the Madiba clan took up the mantle of traditional leadership. Dressed in a black and white animal print shirt, he walked with difficulty up the stairs but otherwise looked in good health and in radiant spirits as he delivered a short speech in Xhosa in a firm voice. "That will make me sleep forever being a happy man in my grave knowing that Mandla has taken this chieftaincy that I was supposed to have taken," said Nelson Mandela. Mandla Mandela's father Makgatho, Nelson Mandela's last surviving son, died in 2005 of AIDS-related complications. His mother, Rayne Mandela-Perry, said her late husband would have been proud to see his son carry on the family legacy. Mandla Mandela, who graduated from Rhodes University's political science program last week, now has the power to decide disputes and try certain criminal and civil cases.

Italy: Rome: Funeral Of Actor Marcello Mastroianni - 1996
 
03:16
Italian actor Marcello Mastroianni has been laid to rest in Rome Sunday. In a simple civic ceremony at Rome's Campidoglio (city hall) family members, celebrities and fans remembered their friend and hero - a man whose acting career spanned nearly fifty years. With the song from his movie "eight-and-a-half" playing in the background - friends spoke of their memories of the star. After the ceremony his coffin was taken across Rome and placed in the family vault. Mastroianni died in Paris Thursday from pancreatic cancer aged 72. There was music and applause - perfectly fitting for Italy's acting great Marcello Mastroianni to make his finale. As his coffin was carried into Rome's Campidoglio the huge crowd broke into a thunderous applause - thanks for the man who had entertained them since his cinematic debut in 1947. And in the background - the theme music from his movie "eight-and-a-half". Rome's mayor Francesco Rutelli accompanied Mastroianni's grieving family into the ceremony. His widow Flora Carabella and daughter Barbara took their seats with another of Italy's greatest acting exports - Sofia Loren. Loren and Mastroianni had performed in 12 films together - they had also been close friends. Many of Italy's most renowned actors and directors had come to say their last farewell - including actress Monica Vitti. Mastroianni's long-time seamstress simply summarised his importance in Italian cinema. SOUNDBITE: (Italian) "You will always be in my heart and in the heart of Italian cinema. Thank you for everything." SUPER-CAPTION: Angela Insimani, Mastroianni's seamstress. As the music played and memories of Marcello flooded back - Sofia Loren broke down in tears as she held the hand of his widow Flora. She says they made one of the great cinematic partnerships. SOUNDBITE: (English) "There was a kind of chemistry between us that could not be compared with anybody else, with anyone else. Q/ Do you have a last message for Marcello? "Ciao Marcello, I will never forget you. You will always be in my heart, I know that." SUPER-CAPTION: Sofia Loren, actress. After the ceremony - Mastroianni's body was transported across Rome to the Verrano cemetery where the family vault is. There he will now rest - but always remembered through the 160 films that he starred in. More often than not, he was the quintessential "Latin lover" - most famous for his role in Fellini's film "La Dolce Vita".

USA: PAKISTAN'S BENAZIR BHUTTO MEETS PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON
 
02:09
English/Nat Pakistan's Prime Minister, Benazir Bhutto, met with U-S President Bill Clinton today (Tuesday) to deliver a clear message: my planes or my money. Benazir Bhutto wants the Clinton administration to either unfreeze the delivery of 28 F- 16 fighter jets or return the one-point-four (b) billion dollars paid for them. Clinton promised to urge Congress to reimburse Pakistan. But he is limited by a 1990 law which freezes U-S military supplies and economic aid to Pakistan due to concerns that it was developing nuclear weapons. Bhutto told Clinton that Pakistan had no nuclear weapons, although she claimed it had the knowledge to build them. President Clinton's administration inherited the uncomfortable situation of Pakistan's payment of one-point-four billion U-S dollars for fighter jets it never received. The 28 F-16 fighter jets were manufactured and paid for, but never delivered. The deal is being held up by a 1990 U-S law freezing economic aid and military supplies for Pakistan over concern that it is acquiring nuclear weapons. Bhutto said Pakistan had the knowledge to develop atomic weapons, but had decided against assembling, exporting or detonating nuclear devices. The measure is known as the Pressler amendment, after its sponsor, Senator Larry Pressler of South Dakota. Following their meeting, President Clinton says the situation is unfair and must be addressed. SOUNDBITE: "I don't think what happened was fair to Pakistan, in terms of the money. Now under the law, we can't give up the equipment, the law is clear. So I intend to consult with Congress on that to see what we can do." SUPER CAPTION: US President Bill Clinton Bhutto felt progress was being made on the five year old dispute. SOUNDBITE: "I'm encouraged by my discussions with the president this morning and with the concern he has shown for Pakistan. I welcome the Clinton administration's decision to work with Congress to revise the Pressler amendment." SUPER CAPTION: Pakistan PM Benazir Bhutto The two leaders also discussed the 48-year-old conflict between Pakistan and India over control of the disputed Kashmir territory on their borders.

NETHERLANDS: BRITISH & DUTCH SCIENTISTS MAKE FROG FLOAT IN MID-AIR
 
01:48
English/Nat British and Dutch scientists using a giant magnetic field have made a frog float in mid- air, and might even be able to do the same thing with a human being. The team from Britain's University of Nottingham and the University of Nijmegen in the Netherlands has also succeeded in levitating plants, grasshoppers and fish. Scientists at the University of Nijmegen in Holland have managed to make a frog float six feet (approximately two metres) in the air - and they say the trick could easily be repeated with a human. The secret is not magic but a powerful magnetic field which overcomes the force of gravity. The field makes the frog's atoms generate a weak magnetic force in the opposite direction. This causes it to be repelled in the same way as like poles of two magnets. Plants, grasshoppers and fish have been levitated by the research team in the same way. NASA, apparently, is extremely interested in the experiment in order to be able to test the effects of weightlessness on astronauts without having to put them into space. Easy, says team leader Dr Andre Geim. SOUNDBITE: (English) There is no problem with putting a man by this magnetic levitation, to fly in the air. Technically we can do it with you without any problems. SUPER CAPTION: Dr Andre Geim, Director of the High Field Magnetic Laboratory of the Catholic University of Nijmegen And for those worried about the effects on the frog - don't worry. He's not hopping mad - quite the opposite, in fact.

Two shot Tony Blair and Bill Morris (leader of Transport and General Workers' Union) as Morris introduces Blair (UPSOUND: (English) "In the light of that information I now invite the Prime Minister to make a statement to the Congress." 3. Blair goes up to speak 4. SOUNDBITE: (English) Tony Blair, British Prime Minister "As Bill has just informed you there have been the most terrible shocking events taking place in the United States of America within the last hour or so including two hijacked planes being flown deliberately into the World Trade Centre. I'm afraid we can only imagine the terror and the carnage there and the many many innocent people that will have lost their lives. I know you will want to join with me in sending the deepest condolences to President Bush and to the American people on behalf of the British people at these terrible events. This mass terrorism is the new evil in our world today. It is perpetrated by fanatics who are utterly indifferent to the sanctity of human life, and we the democracies of this world are going to have to come together to fight it together and eradicate this evil from our world. Delegates, I hope you will understand that I don't believe it would be appropriate to carry on the speech I was going to give you today. I know I have issued copies of the speech, we will make sure that all delegates get copies of the speech, but I think it inappropriate to give that speech here now. I will obviously want to carry on discussions that we've had about the issues that concern us. I will now return to London and once again I thank you for your indulgence here. I'm very very sorry it has turned out the way it has but I know that, as I say, you would want to join with me in offering our deepest sympathy to the American people and our absolute shock and outrage at what has happened." 5. Blair returns to his seat to applause STORYLINE: British Prime Minister Tony Blair has reacted with shock and outrage to the news on Tuesday of attacks on the World Trade Centre in New York and the Pentagon in Washington. Blair was speaking at the TUC Congress in Brighton where he had been due to address delegates about his plans for public services. But he said in the circumstances it would be inappropriate and instead he was returning to London immediately. Blair sent deepest condolences to President Bush and to the American people on behalf of the British people. And he condemned the new evil of mass terrorism, calling upon world democracies to unite and eradicate it from the world. Two planes crashed into the upper floors of both World Trade Centre towers minutes apart on Tuesday morning in what the President George W. Bush said was an apparent terrorist attack, blasting fiery, gaping holes in the 110-storey buildings. Within the hour, an aircraft crashed on a helicopter landing pad near the Pentagon, and the West Wing of the White House was evacuated amid threats of terrorism.

USA: NOBEL PRIZE FOR CHEMISTRY AWARDED TO SCIENTIST ZEWAIL
 
02:36
Los Angeles, USA, 12 October 1999 The Nobel Prize for Chemistry has been awarded to an Egyptian-American for his pioneering work with lasers. Scientist, Ahmed Zewail has shown that a rapid-firing laser can observe the motion of atoms in a molecule, during chemical reactions. The Nobel Prize is the latest in a series of plaudits offered to Zewail and his colleagues at the California Institute of Technology for work in this field. It was congratulations all round when Ahmed Zewail arrived at work on Tuesday morning The 53-year-old scientist had just found out that he had been awarded the Nobel Prize for Chemistry for his work capturing ultrafast snapshots of atomic reactions. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Well in the excited state as they say, I feel well, very, very well. (Q) Did you expect it? You can never expect a Nobel Prize, nobody ever expects a Nobel Prize. People tell you that you can get it but you never expect a Nobel Prize so it was very thrilling to get the call at 5.30 this morning. (Q) What happened with the telephone call? Well the Royal Swedish Academy, the secretary-general called and he said 'I'm sorry to wake you up and I have some good news' and then he told me about the award and the significance and so on. (Q) How did you feel when you got off the phone? Did you jump in the air? I went and kissed my wife and kissed my children and she made a cup of coffee and the phone did not stop until now. It just did not stop." SUPER CAPTION: Ahmed Zewail, Nobel Laureate Colleagues who work with Zewail are elated at the award and say he's a deserving recipient. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Yeah I was excited, I woke up at six and went and turned on the computer and went on-line and there he was, Ahmed Zewail, it was unbelievable. I'm really excited, I'm so happy and I'm one hundred percent sure he deserves it, it's great." SUPER CAPTION: SOUNDBITE: (English) "He did some very good experiments in the late 80s and he's the founder of the field. Now there's hundreds of groups all over the world doing the same thing and I think many people didn't believe it was possible but he showed it was and now it's a standard thing, text-books, conferences, everywhere." SUPER CAPTION: Zewails' development known as femtochemistry, uses ultra-fast lasers to measure the movement of atoms during chemical reactions. His ground-breaking research has helped explain the way the human eye adjusts to the dark and the way plants convert light to food in photosynthesis. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Until the work at CalTech you could not really see them in real time, you could not see the motion of the atoms." SUPER CAPTION: Ahmed Zewail, Nobel Laureate Zewail grew up in Egypt and got his first science degree from Alexandria University in 1967. From there he went to the United States, where he earned a PhD from the University of Pennsylvania. He then performed research at the University of California in Berkeley and was appointed to CalTech's faculty in 1976. Zewail and his team have been showered with honours over the years, the Nobel prize is the latest.

UK: PRESIDENT MANDELA'S ROYAL WELCOME TO BRITAIN
 
04:01
(9 Jul 1996) English/Nat Britain is giving the red carpet treatment to Nelson Mandela, the man who smashed apartheid in South Africa. In Britain, on a four-day state visit, the South African President is being hailed as a hero. It's the first state visit to the country by a South African president. President Nelson Mandela's state visit to Britain began according to tradition. Met by the Princess Royal at London's exclusive Dorchester Hotel, the hero of apartheid was whisked off to Horse Guards Parade to inspect a guard of honour. At 12.40 pm local time, a Royal gun salute boomed across the capital as the President's limousine glided into the parade ground. The formal welcoming party, headed by the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, Prime Minister John Major and several top ministers, bore all the traditional pomp and ceremony befitting a visiting head of state. But the South African leader received a rather less formal welcome from the crowd. More than six-thousand people had gathered at the square - the largest turnout for a head of state's welcome since the birth of television. Chanting 'Nelson', 'Nelson', they waved South African flags and craned their necks for a view of the man who was once known as the Black Pimpernel. Britain's Queen Elizabeth appeared pleased to meet Mandela. She made a highly successful visit to South Africa last year, and clearly enjoys Mandela's company. The band of the Irish Guards played the South African national anthem, incorporating the last few bars of the old Afrikaans anthem, signifying the transition from old to new. On Horse Guards Parade, President Mandela, wearing a smart, dark business suit, inspected the honour guard. His walk was stiff, but he appeared as dignified as ever. Then he and daughter Zenani joined their royal escort to parade down The Mall in open carriages to Buckingham Palace. Later in the day, the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh gave a state dinner in Mandela's honour. The Queen Mother paid tribute to the South African President by attending her first Buckingham Palace state banquet in almost three years. The 95-year-old Queen Mother sat on Mandela's right. The Queen was on his left. The Prince of Wales, Duke of York, Princess Royal, and Princess Margaret were also present. As were Prime Minister John Major and senior cabinet ministers. In all, around 200 guests were assembled in the sumptuous Palace Ballroom. In her formal welcome to the guest of honour, Queen Elizabeth II stressed the close ties between Britain and South Africa. SOUNDBITE: Mr President, South Africa has a special place in my heart and in the hearts of the British people. Our two counties are bound together by history, by common interest and by ideals and aspirations. SUPER CAPTION: Queen Elizabeth II The Queen and Mandela then touched glasses in a toast to an even tighter bond between their two nations in the future.

ZIMBABWE: BRUCE GROBBELAAR PLAYS FOR NATIONAL TEAM
 
02:53
Nat Sot Embattled goalkeeper Bruce Grobbelaar has taken his place in his country's team for the African Cup of Nations. It's his first major game since the allegations that he deliberately threw matches for bribes. He's playing for his home country of Zimbabwe, against Zaire. All eyes were on goalkeeper Bruce Grobbelaar when he ran out for his country in Harare Football fans in his home country of Zimbabwe were delighted to see their hero in his national kit. He was cleared on Saturday by the world football authority FIFA to play. FIFA came to the decision after examining a preliminary report by the English Football Association. The English tabloid newspaper "The Sun" alleged last week that Grobbelaar had taken bribes to fix matches, both for his former club - Liverpool - and for Southampton, the team he currently plays for. Earlier, FIFA had said it could ban the goalie if the F-A's report was damning. Since he arrived in Zimbabwe Grobbelaar has denied the allegations. And he added that they'd be unlikely to unsettle his game. There was a party atmosphere at the national sports stadium, with cheerleaders and a band. Some of the crowd chanted "Up with Bruce, down with Sun. The only pressure from fans in Harare is to stop any goals from Zaire and help Zimbabwe through to the next round of the African Cup of Nations. And in soaring temperatures, it was clearly thirsty work.

UZBEKISTAN: RUSSIAN PRESIDENT YELTSIN STUMBLES DURING CEREMONY
 
02:37
Russian/Nat There are once again questions about Russian President Boris Yeltsin's health after he swayed and nearly fell over during a military ceremony in Uzbekistan. Another welcome ceremony in which he was due to take part, was cancelled. Talks with Islam Karimov, president of Uzbekistan, were later held behind closed doors at a government residence. Yeltsin's spokesman said the Russian president had had a "difficult flight" and had caught at cold. Yeltsin is on a two day visit to the central Asian republic of Uzbekistan. As so often with the Russian leader, international crises were put on the back burner as doubts about his health took centre stage once more on Sunday. Yeltsin was seen to visibly stumble when he arrived in the Uzbekistan capital, Tashkent. He leant on the arm of President Karimov for support as he crossed the tarmac and later waved to the cameras. But more was to follow. Yeltsin was uncomfortable on his feet as he and Karimov stood side by side while the national anthems were played. An aide dashed closer to the Russian leader when it looked at one point as if he was going to fall over. After the ceremony, Karimov immediately took Yeltsin's arm as they walked away over the tarmac. A wreath laying ceremony at a monument to a national hero of Uzbekistan was cancelled. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Yakushkin said the Russian president was suffering from a cold after having been through a tough working week. SOUNDBITE: (Russian) "I have to say I have spent the whole week with Boris Nikolayevich (Yeltsin). He has had a very busy working week, and that is why I am holding this briefing. Some of you were present at these meetings. It was a hard flight and not an easy end to his working week. I have to say he has a cold. SUPER CAPTION: Dmitry Yakushkin, Kremlin spokesman The 67-year-old president, who had a quintuple heart bypass, is facing an economic crisis and labour unrest at home while on the international front the crisis in Kosovo poses a serious challenge to Russia's international relations.

"Hansie should be remembered as the good natured spirit that he was," national cricket captain Shaun Pollock told the packed funeral service for 32-year-old Cronje, who died on Saturday in a plane crash. More than a thousand people filled the church at Grey College in Bloemfontein, Cronje's alma mater. A large television screen and rows of seats were set up outside to accommodate the overflowing crowd. The audience included Cronje's family and the nation's cricket squad, wearing their team jackets. South African Sports Minister Ngconde Balfour and former United Cricket Board head Ali Bacher, both of whom had strongly criticised Cronje's role in the scandal, were there as well. The charismatic Cronje, who took over South Africa's national team at the age of 25 to become its youngest captain, led South Africa to possibly its greatest triumph - a five-run win over Australia in the Sydney Test of 1994. But South African fans felt betrayed six years later after Indian officials announced they had tape recordings of Cronje talking to an Indian bookmaker during the team's tour of the subcontinent. Several teammates later told a government commission that Cronje once told them of an offer of up to 350-thousand US dollars to lose a one-day game against India. Cronje denied this but admitted receiving 100-thousand U-S dollars from gamblers in exchange for match information and conveying other offers from gamblers to team-mates.

Some of the best times of my life is when I have done something hard, when I have overcome a fear.

That's a big part...that's what we do to each other all the time.

SOUNDBITE (English) Michelle Obama, US First Lady "I knew he was a special person, and it had nothing to do with his education, it has nothing to do with his potential. I say this to young women, don't check off - there are a lot of women who check off the boxes. Did he go to the right school, what is his income, you know. It was none of that. It was how he felt about his mother, the love that he felt to his mother, his relationship to women, his work ethic. We worked together in a firm. He did his work, he was good and he was smart and I liked that. He was low key and wasn't impressed with himself and he was funny and we joked a lot and he loved his little sister...those were the things. And he was a community organiser. I really respected that. Here we are in a big law firm, right, and everybody was pushing to make money, he was one of the smartest students at Harvard Law School, one of the smartest associates in our firm. He had the chance to clerk for the Supreme Court and I thought well, you are definitely going to do that, right? Only a few people have the chance to do that and he was like, 'not really, I think I can do more work working with folks in churches.'

Lebanon - Girl sheds tears of glass

T/I: 10:44:35 A family in Lebanon believes that their daughter has experienced a miracle from God. She sheds up to ten pieces of glass daily from her eye without causing any damage. Hasnaa Muslumani, a twelve year old girl who lives in Fakha, says the unusual phenomenon started on March 28th this year when she woke up one morning feeling pain in her eye and something come out. Her mother took her to hospital and Dr Ahmed Araji reportedly managed to take out three big pieces of glass from her eye. Since her return home, Hasnaa has reportedly shed around 7-8 pieces of glass daily without any apparent harm being done to the eye. While her parents claim it is a miracle from God, Dr Araji has a different explanation. He says the girl's father broke a glass near his daughters face a few months ago and believes that this incident may be responsible.

SOUTH AFRICA: PRESIDENT MANDELA MAKES FINAL SPEECH AS ANC LEADER
 
03:25
(16 Dec 1997) Natural Sound South African President Nelson Mandela made his final speech as leader of the African National Congress at the party's 50th national conference on Tuesday. The conference marks the final step in the A-N-C's transition from a liberation movement to a political party. Deputy president Thabo Mbeki is expected to be the only candidate to replace Mandela as head of the A-N-C. The five-day conference will choose new leaders to replace the generation which led the African National Congress through its struggle for liberation. It will also decide on new policies to take the party - and South Africa - into the 21st century. The congress will see Nelson Mandela step down as A-N-C president after six years in which he has led his party through negotiations on ending white rule, the landmark 1994 elections and its first period governing the country. The conference is also expected to decide on final nominations for the top six party posts later on Tuesday. Mandela's deputy president, Thabo Mbeki, 55, is expected to be the only candidate to replace him, and will automatically be considered the new party president when the nominations close later today. Mbeki is expected to receive unanimous backing. A party atmosphere permeated the University of the North West campus in Mafeking. But while the scene suggested unity, the conference could see rifts grow in the A-N-C over leadership and policies. The only candidate to emerge so far for the deputy presidency - national chairman Jacob Zuma - may have to face a floor revolt from Mandela's ex-wife, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela. She proffered her famous raised-fist salute as she arrived on Tuesday and was cheered by about a dozen delegates. The A-N-C was expected to change its rules to make it more difficult for Madikizela-Mandela to be nominated by conference. At present such a nomination requires support from 10 per cent of the delegates by a show of hands. The new rules would increase this to 25 per cent - or 766 of the 3,064 voting delegates - who must sign seconding petitions. Madikizela-Mandela has been isolated for years by the mainstream A-N-C leadership because of her defiance of party discipline. Trouble could also come from discontented grassroots supporters of the A-N-C. Delegates representing impoverished blacks hungry for housing, power and jobs want more forceful policies and more pressure on wealthy whites to ease their situation. Some party leaders have warned that the A-N-C must start paying more attention to its members. In his final state of the A-N-C address, Nelson Mandela looked to the future. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Hopefully it will also assist the conference as it formulates both our policy position and the programme of action that will guide our activities in the period up to our next conference at the end of the twentieth century." SUPER CAPTION: Nelson Mandela, South African President Mandela will remain president of the country until 1999, when national elections are due. The A-N-C is expected to win, and the leaders chosen this week are almost certain to lead South Africa into the next century.

Obviously we don't have all the means otherwise we would not go outside Africa. We don't have all the means but nevertheless it is an African problem and clearly though the countries of the regions are the ones who have met for this problem, we can't envisage an African force seeking assistance from the outside world, we can't envisage a force that does not have South Africa"'; C/A press; SOT Mandela: "The supply of arms to Rwanda was influenced by humanitarian considerations that people who were unarmed are going to be victims of that party outside the border which is being trained and prepared to go back and commit those massacres.

Bosnian Muslims help keep Balkan Ramadan traditions alive
 
03:13
It's one of the busiest times of year for Sarajevo's bakers, preparing the city's favourite food - a yeasty bread known as somun - to break a long day of fasting. While somun is baked all year round, there's one special ingredient added just for Ramadan. Cumin seeds are sprinkled on top and when they are baked in a wood burning oven they release an aromatic smell. The owner of Vrbanjusa bakery in Sarajevo Jasmin Aljovic explains: "It is specific for Ramadan that we put black cumin seeds on somun. We do it for the smell; it is the traditional smell of Ramadan that permeates most of the city." As dusk approaches, queues form in front of the city's many bakeries. People prefer to get their somun bread for iftar while it is still hot from the oven. In Sarajevo, an old fortress overlooking the city has become a favourite iftar destination. Large crowds, including tourists and non-muslims, gather there to watch Smajo Krivic shoot a firework rocket from a cannon-like launcher to signal the end of fasting. Nearly two decades ago, Krivic and a group of friends reinitiated the cannon tradition which had been established during more than four centuries of Ottoman rule in Bosnia from the 15th to the 19th century. Krivic says: "During the communist rule after World War II, the (cannon firing) tradition had been banned," "But now, after the latest unfortunate war (between 1992 and 1995), myself and a group of my friends wanted to re-launch it and we succeeded in that," he says. Krivic consults his watch before firing the cannon into the sky. Soon after, Sarajevo's many minarets light up and the call to prayer starts echoing through the city. Many young Muslims like to break their fast with friends on top of the fortress, replacing traditional meals with a simple slice of pizza. For those who stay home or go to restaurants, the fast is typically broken by dates and strong sugary lemonade. It is then followed by small servings of traditional Bosnian meals such as onions or stuffed peppers and soups and stews. All meals are accompanied by somun.

This subcommittee, this Congress and the NIH have the opportunity to make it happen in time for many more people today living with Parkinson's. Thank you." 15. Various shots of people applauding 16. Wide shot of hearing room STORYLINE: Two heavyweights - one in the ring and one of the big screen - were on Capitol Hill Wednesday, making their case for more federal dollars for Parkinson's research. Muhammad Ali and Michael J Fox testified before a Senate Appropriations subcommittee, urging lawmakers for more money to help find a cure. Fox, who showed symptoms of the disease by squirming and fidgeting throughout his testimony, said the government needs to be more pro-active. He said scientists are close to unlocking the secret that will lead to a cure, but emphasised they need more funding to do so. Boxing legend Muhammad Ali sat next to Fox during the hearing. Ali's wife Lonnie called Parkinson's disease the "fight of Muhammad's life," and told lawmakers that not coming up with enough money could mean scientists miss finding the cure. Scientists have reported numerous promising approaches to the disease.

Standing hand-in-hand with his wife, Kennedy family member Maria Shriver, with her parents, Sargent Shriver and Eunice Kennedy Shriver, close by Schwarzenegger said he wanted to represent all the people of California. Speaking at the Century Plaza Hotel ballroom Schwarzenegger said he had received a gracious phone call from Governor Gray Davis conceding his defeat. Schwarzenegger pledged to bring jobs back to the state, improve education and restore trust in government, and urged his opponents to join him in solving California's problems. Earlier, as televisions in the ballroom monitored Davis' concession speech, the crowd of about 1,000 applauded when Davis said voters had decided it was time for someone else to serve as governor. Schwarzenegger raised at least 21.5 (m) million US dollars for the race, some 10 (m) million US dollars of which from his own pocket. The celebration must quickly give way to planning for a lightning-fast transition that will take place as soon as the election is certified, and no later than November 15. Schwarzenegger's campaign co-chairman, Republican David Dreier, will lead his transition team, campaign spokesman Todd Harris said.

Chirac says no to any second resolution authorising war
 
02:02
1. Reporter asking question 2. SOUNDBITE: (France) Jacques Chirac, French President: "I'll tell you what my feeling is. My belief is that tonight this resolution, which carries an ultimatum - and therefore presenting an international slide towards war - does not have a majority of nine votes." Question: So France doesn't need to use its veto? Chirac: "Apart from that, which is exactly right, France will naturally have a part to play. There are the nations that are voting no, therefore France, there are those who will abstain and in that case there won't be a majority. So in this case there won't be the problem of a veto." Question: And if that's not the case? Chirac: "So, in the second instance, of course people change their minds and according to what I believe are their sentiments at this time and in this case there could easily be a majority of nine or more votes who are for the new resolution - the one which authorises war. In this case France will vote no. But there is a characteristic, that's what one would call the reality of using a veto, that's if one of the members of the Permanent Five, that's the United States, England, Russia, China, France, votes no, even if there is a a majority then the resolution won't be adopted. That's what one would call the right of veto." Question: What's your main position at the moment? Chirac: "No matter what the circumstances we will vote 'no', because it considers, at this time, that there is no place for going to war to achieve the objective that we all want at the moment, that is the disarmament of Iraq." 3. Reporter on camera 4. Wide aerial Chirac talking to the two reporters STORYLINE: President Jacques Chirac said on Monday that France was prepared to veto the US-backed resolution on Iraq if necessary, joining Russia in saying it would vote against giving Saddam Hussein until March 17 to disarm. Chirac said in a televised interview that France would vote against any resolution that contains an ultimatum leading to war: "No matter what the circumstances we will vote 'no.'" It was the first time Chirac explicitly said France would use its veto power as a permanent member of the UN Security Council to block the United States' quest for world body approval for war. However, Chirac also indicated the veto might not be needed because the resolution does not have the nine Security Council votes needed for passage. "Tonight this resolution, which carries an ultimatum ... does not have a majority of nine votes," Chirac said. Chirac's statements came shortly after Russian Foreign Minister Igor Ivanov said Russia - another veto-wielding Security Council member - would vote against the US-British UN resolution.

UK QUEEN HOSTS JUBILEE LUNCH FOR SOVEREIGN MONARCHS
 
03:19
(18 May 2012) Britain has come under criticism for inviting the king of Bahrain, whose Gulf state has been engaged in a brutal crackdown on political dissent, to a lunch on Friday celebrating Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee. The lunch in Windsor Castle was the largest gathering of foreign royals in Britain since Queen Elizabeth II's grandson, Prince William, was married to Kate Middleton last year. Then, as now, the decision to extend an invitation to members of the Bahraini royal family has angered whose who are upset by the deadly violence deployed against demonstrators since protests erupted in the Gulf state. Bahrain's Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa eventually skipped the royal wedding, saying he didn't want the controversy to tarnish the couple's happy day. But on Friday Buckingham Palace confirmed that his father, King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, attended the queen's lunch, along with some 45 other royal guests from around the world. The Foreign Office, which advised Buckingham Palace on the invitations, said that Britain's ties to Bahrain allowed UK officials to talk frankly with the strategic island nation's rulers about "a range of issues including those where we have concerns." Al Khalifa wasn't the only controversial guest dining at Windsor Castle. Swaziland's King Mswati III, who is accused of living in luxury while his people go hungry, also attended the lunch. Other guests included Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands; Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko of Japan; the Emir of Qatar Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani and Saudi Arabia's Prince Mohammed bin Nawwaf bin Abdulaziz al Saud. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry also attended the lunch. The Diamond Jubilee marks 60 years of Elizabeth's reign as Britain's monarch.

VICE PRESIDENT JOSHUA NKOMO DIES AGED 82
 
02:43
English/Nat Vice President Joshua Nkomo, the father of Zimbabwe's fight for independence from white colonial rule, has died. He was 82. Nkomo suffered from prostate cancer, and poor health forced him to largely withdraw from political life last year. Thandiwe Nkomo, Nkomo's daughter, said he died around 1:30 a-m local time at Harare's main hospital, on Thursday. Joshua Nkomo was regarded by many as the guiding light of the nation's black nationalist movement, which fought a guerrilla war against white colonial rule for nearly three decades in the former British colony of Rhodesia. But the traditional leader of the minority Ndebele tribe failed to achieve his goal of becoming the first black leader when Rhodesia became independent Zimbabwe in 1980. Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe, a longtime lieutenant of Nkomo in the nationalist movement, formed a coalition, appointing him in 1980 to the post of Home Affairs Minister in charge of police and internal security. But the alliance was short-lived. In February 1982, Mugabe accused Nkomo of plotting a coup and fired him and three ministers of his Zimbabwe African People's Union party. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I have suffered, I have worked so hard for this county, before independence, and I have worked so hard to make independence stick. And now this man turns round and calls himself a traitor. Me, a traitor- a man who has worked so hard for his county. There is no insult to beat this." SUPER CAPTION: Joshua Nkomo, Nkomo's passport was seized and he was restricted to his home city of Bulawayo in western Zimbabwe. Fighters professing loyalty to Nkomo mounted an armed rebellion. Nkomo saw his sacking as a personal act of revenge by Mugabe. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I have never done anything wrong and Robert (Mugabe) knows this. I tell you, this is for personal power. Let him stand up and deny this. He is frightened of me and my stature and is frightened that he will not win the next election. That is what he is doing- trying to smear me. It is very very sly and very dirty. You don't expect (this) of a president of a country." SUPER CAPTION: Joshua Nkomo Mugabe brutally crushed the insurrection with troops drawn mostly from his majority Shona tribe. Nkomo denied direct links with the rebels, but fled into exile by crossing the Botswana border on foot and in disguise after government troops ransacked his home and killed his driver. He returned to Zimbabwe to negotiate an end to the rebellion and in 1988 signed a peace accord with Mugabe. He rejoined the government as vice president. Joshua Mqabuko Nyongolo Nkomo was born on June 19, 1917. As a young man, he worked as a truck driver and carpenter to raise money for his education in South Africa. On returning to Rhodesia, Nkomo rose through the ranks of youth movements and labour unions to form and lead the African National Congress, the nation's first black nationalist political party, in 1952. In 1957, the African National Youth League merged with Nkomo's ANC and the new group, named the National Democratic Party, elected him president. Colonial authorities banned the NDP five years later. Nkomo reformed it as ZAPU, which was also immediately banned. But as Britain granted independence to its other African colonies in the early 1960s, rivalries in the nationalist movement erupted into violence. Nkomo, Mugabe and other black activist leaders were detained. Rhodesian Prime Minister Ian Smith declared unilateral independence from Britain in 1965 to retain white rule. Nkomo and Mugabe were to remain in detention for ten years. Those talks failed. Nkomo remained in Zambia and two years later merged his guerrilla army with Mugabe's Mozambique-based fighters under the banner of the Patriotic Front.

KENYA: NAIROBI: PRESIDENT DANIEL ARAP MOI SWORN IN UPDATE (2)
 
01:56
Natural Sound Kenyan President Daniel arap Moi was sworn in for his fifth and final five-year term on Monday. Presidents Yoweri Museveni of Uganda and Benjamin Mkapa of Tanzania, attended the ceremony in a show of support for one of Africa's longest-serving leaders. The Kenyan President was out at the Nairobi airport to greet his African neighbours - the presidents of Tanzania and Uganda - on Monday. They were in Kenya to attend his swearing-in for another five year term. First to arrive was President Benjamin Mkapa of Tanzania followed by Yoweri Museveni - the President of Uganda. The East African leaders came to join in the celebrations in a symbolic gesture of support for the 73-year-old President Moi. Five thousand Kenyans, some carrying posters of Moi, also crowded onto a grassy hill overlooking Nairobi's Uhuru Park to watch their president be sworn in. It was in this park where President Daniel arap Moi, one of Africa's longest-serving leaders, first took the oath of office following the death of Jomo Kenyatta in 1978. Moi first inspected a guard of honour made up of members of the 70th Battalion of the Kenyan army, which prevented a coup against Moi in 1982. Then the 73-year-old ruler was sworn in by Chief Justice Zaccheus Chesoni. During the ceremony he swore to perform the duties of the president of the Republic of Kenya faithfully, and "with commitment and clear conscience" and he said he would "champion all the people according to the law without fear, favour or hatred". Moi's swearing-in comes after last week's chaotic election. It ran for an unprecedented second day and was marred by charges of rigging and eight deaths in political violence. Moi's two nearest challengers - Mwai Kibaki, his vice president for a decade, and Raila Odinga, son of an independence leader - rejected Moi's victory and called for a new vote. But on Sunday, the Electoral Commission Chairman Samuel Kivuitu officially confirmed what unofficial results already had shown - that Moi had won with 40 percent of the vote. But Moi remains unpopular with most Kenyans - 60 percent didn't vote for him but instead chose one of 13 challengers. Critics blame Moi for rampant corruption and inept management that have badly damaged this once prosperous former British colony's economy.
