INDONESIA: JAKARTA: B J HABIBIE SWORN IN AS NEW PRESIDENT
 
02:37
Indonesian/Nat President Suharto resigned on Thursday after days of violence and protest made his 32-year grip on power untenable. In a nationwide television address, Suharto asked forgiveness for "any mistakes or shortcomings". Vice-President Bacharuddin Jusuf Habibie was immediately sworn in as the new president of the world's fourth most populous nation. Immediately after the swearing-in, Indonesia's armed forces commander said the army supports the transition of power. Suharto has ended 32 years as the autocratic head of Indonesia. He resigned on Thursday, driven to the wall by Indonesia's economic crash and a week of deadly rioting. SOUNDBITE: (Indonesian) "I have decided to resign as President of the Republic of Indonesia as of the reading of this statement on Thursday, May 21 1998. The statement of my resignation as president I deliver this before you, the parliament leadership, who are also leaders of the People's Consultative Assembly. I also take this opportunity to wish them well." SUPER CAPTION: Suharto, Former Indonesian President Suharto asked forgiveness for "any mistakes or shortcomings" in a televised nationwide address. Just a few days ago, such a statement would have been unthinkable from the powerful, iron-fisted leader. SOUNDBITE: (Indonesian) "In accordance with Article 8 of the 1945 Constitution, the Vice President Bacharuddin Jusuf Habibie will carry on the remaining presidential term from 1998 to 2003. With regard to the health and the support of our society during my leadership of this country and its republic, (close up Suharto) I express my deepest gratitude and my deepest sorrow if there were mistakes, failures or shortcomings. Hopefully, the people of Indonesia will remain victorious based on Pancasila (the state ideology) and the 1945 Constitution." SUPER CAPTION: Suharto, Former Indonesian President Vice President Bacharuddin Jusuf Habibie, a close Suharto ally, was immediately sworn in as the new president. Suharto's announcement that Habibie would serve out the remaining presidential term, which runs until the year 2003, was a surprise move. There was no mention of a transitional government and elections by the end of the year, though both had been expected to be announced on Thursday. That was likely to anger opposition forces, which have been demanding quicker reforms and a total revamp of the Suharto regime. They are unlikely to trust Habibie, a friend to Suharto since boyhood. SOUNDBITE: (Indonesian) "In accordance with Article 9 of the 1945 Constitution, on becoming president I now take the oath according to my religion as a Muslim. That is in the name of Allah I will do my responsibility as the president of the Republic of Indonesia." SUPER CAPTION: Bacharuddin Jusuf Habibie, Indonesian President The leader of the growing opposition movement withheld his support for the new government, saying he wanted to wait and see what sort of Cabinet Habibie assembles. Amien Rais said if the Cabinet consists of "corrupt people" and "stinks of nepotism," then "I will not endorse Habibie's government." Immediately after the swearing-in, General Wiranto, the armed forces commander, said that the army supports the transition of power from Suharto to Habibie. He asked the Indonesian people to remain calm and maintained that the powerful Suharto family would continue to be protected. SOUNDBITE: (Indonesian) "With high regard to the culture and legacy of our nation, we will take great efforts to continue to protect the family affiliates of the president and all parliamentary leaders." SUPER CAPTION: General Wiranto, Armed Forces Commander The initial reaction from student protesters was euphoric. resignation.

1. Various Zimbabwean president, Robert Mugabe, walking onto stage 2. SOUNDBITE: (English) Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe: "Your excellencies we must examine why 10 years after Rio, the poor remain very much with us - poorer and far more exposed and vulnerable as ever before. Our children suffer from malnutrition and diseases, compounded by the deadly HIV-AIDS endemic. The betrayal of the collective agenda we set ourselves at Rio is a compelling manifestation of bad global governance, a lack of real political will by the north and a total absence of rule of law in international affairs." 3. Cutaway 4. SOUNDBITE: (English) Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe: "Indeed, ours is an Agrarian economy, an imperative that renders the issue of access to land paramount. In our situation, Mr. President, this fundamental question has pitted the black majority who are the right holders and therefore, primary stakeholders of our land, against an internationally well connected racial minority, largely of British descent, and brought in and sustained by British colonialism, now being supported and manipulated by the Blair government. We have said, even as we acquire our land, that we shall not deprive white farmers of land completely. Everyone of them is entitled to at least one farm - more than one farm indeed. Fifteen, twenty, thirty-five farms, one person. These are not figures I am getting out of my mind. They are real figures. So no farmer is being left without land." 5. Cutaway audience 6. SOUNDBITE: (English) Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe: "Let no one who is negative want to spoil what we are doing for ourselves, in order to unite Africa. We belong to this continent. We don't mind having and bearing sanctions banning us from Europe. We are not Europeans and we have not asked for any inch of Europe, or any spare inch of that territory. So Blair, keep your England and let me keep my Zimbabwe." 7. Cutaway audience 8. SOUNDBITE: (English) Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe: "People must always come first in sustainable development and later Africans come first in the development of Africa. Not as puppets, not as beggars but as a sovereign people. Thank-you." STORYLINE: Speaking at the Earth Summit in South Africa on Monday, Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe attacked British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, telling him to stop interfering in Zimbabwean affairs. Mugabe told gathered world leaders at the Earth Summit in Johannesburg, "Blair, keep your England and let me keep my Zimbabwe." During his speech, Mugabe also defended his government's land reforms. He said white farmers in Zimbabwe were "an internationally well connected racial minority, largely of British descent, and brought in and sustained by British colonialism, now being supported and manipulated by the Blair government." The British Prime Minister was not in the hall during Mugabe's speech.

SOUNDBITE (English) Amr Moussa, Arab League Secretary-General: "Yes he walked out because he was not given the full time to answer, and we also wanted him to answer because what Mr. Peres said was first unacceptable, second, many of the points were not really accurate and we wanted to say something. 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.

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.

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."

ITALY: MILAN: INTERNATIONAL CELEBRITIES PAY FINAL RESPECTS TO VERSACE
 
03:45
Natural Sound The "Who's Who" of high fashion and showbiz said goodbye to their colleague and friend Gianni Versace on Tuesday. Britain's Princess Diana, supermodel Naomi Campbell, singers Elton John and Sting and designers such as Giorgio Armani and Valentino were among the more than two- thousand mourners who joined a memorial service at the Duomo cathedral in Milan. Fashion guru Versace was gunned down on 15 July in front of his mansion in Miami Beach in Florida - his brutal killing sent shockwaves through the world of glitz and glamour. Surrounded by security guards, rock star Elton John arrived at Gianni Versace's downtown palazzo in Milan on Tuesday. He joined friends and colleagues of the murdered designer who had come from all over the world to pay their last respects to the designer. In the palazzo's courtyard, the mourners filed past the urn containing Versace's ashes which sat on a simple altar. Naomi Campbell - Versace's favourite model - had flown in from South Africa - she arrived carrying a single white rose. Versace's sister, Donatella - who has vowed to carry on Gianni's empire with her brother Santo - was on hand to greet the mourners. As a host of international celebrities came and went, crowds of spectators formed outside the building in Milan's exclusive Via Montenapoleone design district. Later in the day, the mourners attended a memorial service in Milan's Gothic Duomo Cathedral. The celebrity-filled service might have resembled a night at the Oscars, except there was no glitz, only grief. Many wept openly. The mourners included Britain's Princess Diana, supermodels Eva Herzigova, Valeria Mazza and Carla Bruni, choreographer Maurice Bejart and many others. Perhaps one of the greatest tributes to Versace was the turnout of so many of his fashion colleagues, despite past rivalries on and off the runway. Carla Fendi, Karl Lagerfeld, Valentino and arch-rival Giorgio Armani sat in a row behind the Versace family. They were united in mourning the loss of one of the main contributors to the success of the "Made in Italy" label. At one point during the highly emotional service, Elton John broke down in tears and had to be comforted by Princess Diana. The sombre mood in the Milan Cathedral reflected the atmosphere throughout the world of fashion. All of Versace's followers, many of whom loved to flaunt his bright colours and sequinned fabrics, wore black. As relatives and stars comforted each other, Elton John and Sting performed a mournful rendition of Psalm 23 "The Lord is my Shepherd". It brought many of the celebrities and other mourners to tears. Versace's sister Donatella and brother Santo were overcome by grief as the cathedral filled with music. Versace's murder on the steps of his Miami mansion last Tuesday sent shock waves through the world of fashion and showbiz. 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. A few blocks from the cathedral, shops in the heart of Milan's fashion district had closed during the service in tribute to the slain designer.

SOUNDBITE:(English), Tom Mesereau, Michael Jackson's defence attorney "Mr. Jackson now realises that the advice he received was wrong. He should have fought these actions to the bitter end and vindicated himself.

EGYPT: EU-AFRICA SUMMIT: MUGABE
 
02:32
English/Nat: British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook is set to confront Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe over the violent political turmoil gripping the former British colony. President Mugabe was due to lead the Zimbabwean delegation at a two-day E-U-Africa summit, getting underway in the Egyptian capital Cairo on Monday. The Zimbabwean and UK delegations will be seated close together in the conference room. Relations between the two countries have grown increasingly strained in recent weeks. British Foreign Office ministers have repeatedly condemned President Mugabe's failure to order his security forces to implement judicial orders to remove squatters occupying white-owned farms. And Britain voiced grave concerns when on Saturday brutal force was used against demonstrators protesting against the farm invasions. President Mugabe, for his part, has accused the British of colonialism and interference. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Well the U-K is trying to teach us how to run our country. Naturally we resist that. We do not accept - we are not a British colony any longer. We are not the only developing country with problems. There are many countries with problems. Zimbabwe is far better that the average developing country. You come to Zimbabwe and you will see. We are not a collapsing economy. We have difficulties at the moment but certainly we have a strong asset base and we will not collapse. But when we have difficulties, you see, Britain has no right at all to try and suggest to the rest of the world that we are a failure, nor have they a right to try and suggest to us what we should do. We are not an extension of Britain, we have said. So this is the main area of difference between them and ourselves". SUPER CAPTION: Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe Britain's shadow foreign secretary Francis Maude has renewed calls for Zimbabwe to be suspended from the Commonwealth. But President Mugabe insists that if any country deserves to be sanctioned, it's Britain. SOUNDBITE: (English) "If there's any country that should now be considered for sanctions, it is Britain for interfering in the domestic affairs of Zimbabwe. Q:Britain also wanted to raise this issue during this summit. Do you think it's appropriate? "Well, the British have no standards, apparently, to guide them and if they do, they would be misfiring. And since I'm here I'll take care of them". SUPER CAPTION: Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe The U-K is also concerned about threats by former guerrillas to instigate violence if the Zimbabwean government is defeated at forthcoming elections. Those elections were originally set for April but are now likely to be held in July. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The elections - we have been announcing the stages we are taking. We have a delimitation commission which is working on delimiting the constituencies. As soon as they are through we will announce a date. But we can announce a date before. But next month the elections should take place". SUPER CAPTION: Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe On Sunday, at a preparatory meeting of European Union foreign ministers in Cairo ahead of the summit, Robin Cook proposed that the E-U should offer to send officials to monitor the elections to ensure that they are "free and fair" - a suggestion likely to infuriate President Mugabe. During those same discussions, Robin Cook proposed that the situation in Zimbabwe be added to the agenda for the next E-U General Affairs Council on April 10. Britain has drawn up contingency plans to evacuate up to 20,000 British passport holders from Zimbabwe, should that prove necessary.

Various bear is lifted onto stretcher STORYLINE: Tokyo's residents are used to carrying out earthquake drills, but on Friday, there was a drill with a difference. An employee at a Tokyo zoo dressed up as a polar bear and effected a fake escape. It seems one of the worries about earthquakes is that they could lead to dangerous and wild animals escaping from their damaged pens and roaming Tokyo. So the zoo wanted to practice for this eventuality - but without the danger of using a real bear. The pretend 'bear' was eventually overpowered by tranquilisers, but not before he managed to knock over a couple of the zoo's visitors.

IAN SMITH TALKS ABOUT PRESIDENT ROBERT MUGABE
 
02:31
English/Nat XFA With the opposition trying to impeach him and his popularity at an all-time low, President Robert Mugabe has lashed out at Zimbabwe's white minority, threatening genocide trials for all who fought against him in the independence war. Mugabe told supporters on Wednesday that Ian Smith, the white leader he helped overthrow two decades ago, and all whites who fought against black guerrillas would face trials for war crimes. Speaking as he arrived for a debate in Oxford on Thursday, Ian Smith responded to these latest threats, saying Mugabe's actions belonged to a man clinging onto the last vestiges of power. He challenged Mugabe to set up a truth and reconciliation committee, saying that he had nothing to fear. Arriving at Oxford Union Thursday night, the former white leader of the former British colony of Rhodesia, Ian Smith laughed off President Mugabe's latest threat to put him on the stand. Mugabe is calling for all whites who fought against black guerrillas to face trials for war crimes. Mugabe has said the nation's 70,000 whites - less than 1 percent of the population of 13 million - mostly opposed his government and had spurned offers of forgiveness and reconciliation. Smith rejected Mugabe threat, saying that the blame for the violence lay squarely on Mugabe's shoulders. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Well he is the one who should be put on trial for genocide isn't he, Mugabe -- not Smith." SUPER CAPTION: Ian Smith, former Rhodesian Prime Minister SOUNDBITE: (English) "Well because he killed so many people, massacred them by the thousands, I mean Gurugundi and Matabeleland land, when he massacred 30,000 Matabeleles, I never remember massacring a single person in my life." SUPERCAPTION: Ian Smith, former Rhodesian Prime Minister Smith said Mugabe's belligerent style of government had forced him into a corner - one which had made him desperate and dangerous. SOUNDBITE: (English) "He is in a state of panic, he doesn't know whether he is coming or going, he is like a wounded animal in a corner, dangerous and unpredictable. So I don't know what to say or what to think, it is difficult." SUPERCAPTION: Ian Smith, former Rhodesian Prime Minister When asked if he feared a trial, Smith openly challenged Mugabe to carry out his threats, saying he had nothing to fear. SOUNDBITE: (English) "No I would love it, let's get the truth, when your conscience is clear you have got no problem, have you?" SUPERCAPTION: Ian Smith, former Rhodesian Prime Minister However, when questioned if he felt any responsibility for the current state of the economy in Zimbabwe, Smith said the blacks had actually benefitted under British rule. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Certainly not, the black community will tell you they lived better under Smith than under Mugabe, they were brain washed by a communist propaganda machine into believing that things were going to improve, sadly they were taken for a ride." SUPERCAPTION: Ian Smith, former Rhodesian Prime Minister He said that the only way to establish the truth of Mugabe's accusations was to follow in the footsteps of South Africa's truth and reconciliation commission. SOUNDBITE: (English) I've challenged Mugabe to set up a commission of truth and reconciliation similar to the one they had in South Africa. My word I think that would frighten him if he had to face up to that thing, I would welcome it." SUPERCAPTION: Ian Smith, former Rhodesian Prime Minister Mugabe's threats come the same day a poll was released showing that 75 percent of Zimbabweans want Mugabe to resign and 51 percent want him prosecuted for human rights abuses.

Various photo opportunities of Israeli Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom and Erdogan STORYLINE Guarded by scores of Israeli and Palestinian security officials, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday visited the Al Aqsa Mosque, Islam's third-holiest site and one of the most politically sensitive areas in the region. Erdogan, in the region on a two-day visit, is meeting Palestinian leaders on Monday. He held talks with Israeli leaders on Sunday in an effort to repair strained relations with the Jewish state. In a sign of closer ties, Israel and Turkey said they would set up a hot line for instant communications on terror threats. On Monday morning, Erdogan, whose party has its roots in Turkey's Islamic movement, arrived at the disputed site in the Old City known as the Temple Mount to Jews and the Noble Sanctuary to Muslims. The site, which once held the biblical Jewish Temples and now holds Al Aqsa, is claimed by both Jews and Muslims. Erdogan was surrounded by dozens of Israeli security guards when he arrived at the compound. In his trip here, Erdogan, only the second Turkish prime minister to visit Israel, said he hoped to offer himself as a mediator in the conflict between the Palestinians and Israel.

She inaugurated three days of celebrations with a call to those attending the events to "remember with pride and gratitude those men and women, armed and unarmed, whose courage really helped to bring us to victory. God bless them all." The opening ceremonies were both solemn and festive. They included prayers, choral songs and homages to the reconciliation of the warring parties. There was a colourful march-past of veterans, military and civilian. The then-Queen Elizabeth regularly visited bombed sites in London's East End during the Blitz to help comfort victims of the attacks.

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.

USA - Simpson Tries On The Murder Gloves - 1995
 
01:43
Simpson tries on the murder gloves The much-hyped OJ Simpson trial finally saw drama on Thursday (15/6), when the defendant tugged on the blood-stained gloves that were found at the murder scene. Jurors watched as Simpson put on latex gloves first, then struggled to fit his hands into the brown leather gloves. "They're too small," he said. After some minutes of pushing and pulling, the gloves were on his hands but seemed tight. Simpson pulled the tips of the fingers to show that his hands weren't all the way in. After the glove demonstration, witness Richard Rubin, former vice president and general manager of glovemaker Aris Isotoner, walked to the counsel table and inspected Simpson's bare hands. He testified Simpson was a size large or extra-large. The gloves found at the scene of the murder are extra-large and the prosecuting attorney suggested the former footballer turned actor had faked the courtroom struggle, holding his hands in such a way to inhibit a true fit. The incident was the first dramatic moment in the long trial, which has been dominated for the most by lengthy debates over the validity of the forensic evidence.

And when I got the news that she had died in an accident I was completely devastated. So the fact that I come here now to say goodbye to her is very significant." 17. Cutaway Mandela meeting staff and members of the Spencer family 18. SOUNDBITE: (English) Earl Spencer, brother of Diana, Princess of Wales: "Well it's been a wonderful honour for my family, and for Diana too, and fantastic that such a respected statesman and humanitarian has come here to pay his respects to her. And we're just delighted that he's come it's been a long term commitment and it's finally been fulfilled and we're very very grateful to Mr. Mandela for coming here today. (Question: Would you like to say a few words about your reaction to the collapse of the Burrell trial) Not really." 19. Various Mandela leaving STORYLINE: Former South African President Nelson Mandela visited the grave of the late Diana, Princess of Wales at her ancestral home in Althorp on Friday. Mandela planted a tree in the grounds of the Northamptonshire estate and laid a wreath at the island burial site of the Princess of Wales. A temporary bridge was erected so the elderly statesman could have access to the island. Her grave is normally off-limits to visitors who can visit a memorial statue on a bank opposite the island. The 84 year old is visiting Britain to discuss a new charity project with Diana's brother Earl Spencer. He will outline proposals to combine the Diana, Princess of Wales, Memorial Fund with his own charity, which helps young people suffering from Aids in South Africa. Diana met the statesman for initial discussions about the idea five months before her death in August 1997. Mandela said that Diana had made a great impression on him and that the news of her death had been devastating. Spencer said that the visit of the former South African leader was a great honour for his family and the Princess. He declined to comment on the collapse of the Paul Burrell trial. Burrell, Diana's former Butler, had been facing a possible prison sentence for allegedly stealing personal items from the Princess of Wales. Prosecutors dropped the theft charges on Friday, explaining that Queen Elizabeth II had said he told her shortly after the princess's death that he had taken some of Diana's papers for safekeeping. Diana was killed in a car crash in Paris August 31 1997.

ZAIRE:KINSHASA: PRESIDENT MOBUTO GIVES UP POWER
 
03:01
Eng/French/Nat Zaire's Information Minister announced on Friday that President Mobutu Sese Seko has given up power. The ailing dictator left Kinshasa for his northern palace, apparently ending his 32-year regime as rebels closed in on the capital. Mobutu flew off to Gbadolite, 700 miles north of Kinshasa, for what his spokesman called a "short rest." Later, the information minister Kin-Kiey Mulumba said Mobutu had "ceased all intervention in the conduct of affairs of state." The minister added that Mobutu reigns but does not govern. It's now rumoured Mobutu is planning to flee into exile possibly to France or Morocco. SOUNDBITE: (French) The head of state has left Kinshasa friday morning to go to Ghadoli where he normally lives as everybody knows. SUPER CAPTION: Kin-Kiey Mulumba, Zairean Information Minister.

SOUNDBITE: (French) "The president of the republic can neither arbitrarily transfer powers to the rebel alliance nor transfer any powers which he doesn't constitutionally hold". SUPER CAPTION: Kin-Kiey Mulumba, Zairean Information Minister. SOUNDBITE: (French) "He is frightened of Kabila's troops who could come in either today or tomorrow".

Heated exchange as CEO of investment bank testifies, protest

SOUNDBITE: (English) Lloyd Blankfein, Goldman Sachs CEO: "The people who were coming to us for risk in the housing market wanted to have a security that gave them exposure to the housing market, and that''s what they got. The unfortunate thing, and it''s unfortunate but it doesn''t, is that the housing market went south very quickly after some of these securities, not all of them because some of them were done early, but they went. And so people lost money in it, but the security itself delivered the specific exposure that the client wanted to have." 4. SOUNDBITE: (English) Senator Carl Levin, Subcommittee Chairman of Homeland Security Committee: "You don''t believe it''s relevant to a customer of yours that you are selling a security to that you are betting against that same security. You just don''t think it''s relevant and needs to be disclosed. Is that the bottom line?" 5. SOUNDBITE: (English) Lloyd Blankfein, Goldman Sachs CEO: "Yes, and the people who are selling it in our firm wouldn''t even know what the firm''s position is." 6. Blankfein sitting before Senate panel 7. SOUNDBITE: (English) Senator Carl Levin, Subcommittee Chairman of Homeland Security Committee: "You are taking a position against the very security that you are selling and you are not troubled?" Blankfein: "Senator, again." Levin: "And you want people to believe to trust you?" Blankfein: "Senator I think people do trust us." Levin: "Why, I wouldn''t trust you. If you came to me and wanted to sell me securities and you didn''t tell me that you have a bet against that same security, you don''t think that affects my thinking?" 8. Wide shot of protesters in prison uniforms with Goldman officials'' names around their necks 9. SOUNDBITE: (English) Senator Claire McCaksill, Homeland Security Committee: ++starts on pan of witnesses++ "We have spent a lot of time going through all these documents, and let me just explain in very simple terms what synthetic CDOs are. They are instruments that are created so that people can bet on them. It''s the la-la-land of ledger entries. It''s not investment in a business that has a good idea. It''s not assisting local governments and building infrastructure. It''s gambling, pure and simple, raw gambling." 10. Witnesses seated at table 11. SOUNDBITE: (English) Michael Swenson, Managing Director, Structured Products Group Trading, Goldman Sachs: "We did not cause the financial crisis, specifically to the mortgage desk, which is what I''m here to speak about. You have two panels in subsequent meetings to speak about that, about the Goldman Sachs and our businesses. We, I do no think that we did anything wrong." 12. Mid shot of clerk taking notes STORYLINE: Defending his company under blistering criticism, the CEO of Goldman Sachs testily told sceptical US senators on Tuesday that customers who bought securities from the Wall Street giant in the run-up to a national financial crisis came looking for risk. Lloyd Blankfein and other Goldman executives were lambasted by lawmakers for "unbridled greed" in an often-electric daylong showdown between Wall Street and Congress - with expletives frequently undeleted. Unrepentant, five present and two past Goldman officials unflinchingly stood by their conduct before a Senate investigatory panel and denied helping to cause the financial near-meltdown that turned into the worst recession since the Great Depression. "Unfortunately, the housing market went south very quickly," Blankfein told sceptical senators. "So people lost money in it."

Former white ruler Smith says he is stripped of citizenship

March 27th, 2002 1. Ian Smith, former Rhodesian prime minister, walks out of his house 2. SOUNDBITE: (English) Ian Smith, former Rhodesian Prime Minister: "Well, it's (referring to his passport) been confiscated. I've been told I've lost my citizenship. This is unacceptable, its quite illegal. I was born in this country 83 years ago, and I have all my life only been a citizen of Rhodesia, and then a Zimbabwe passport. I accept certain countries in the world where if people commit a crime, then the penalty is they lose their citizenship, but I have never committed a crime in my life, and never been charged with a crime. So on what basis have I lost my citizenship." 3. Smith walks away, talks with postman FILE - March 10th, 2002 4. Various of Smith casting his vote in the 2002 Zimbabwe presidential elections STORYLINE: Zimbabwe's last white ruler, former prime minister Ian Smith, has been stripped of his Zimbabwe citizenship and passport by President Robert Mugabe's government. Smith, 83, the leader of Rhodesia, as Zimbabwe was known before independence in 1980, said authorities in Harare refused to renew his Zimbabwe passport, leaving him stateless. Smith said officials at the Harare passport office refused to meet with him after informing him his passport was not being renewed ahead of a scheduled trip to Britain and the United States next week. The son of a Scottish immigrant, he was born in western Zimbabwe and headed the white minority government after his Rhodesia Front party severed ties with Britain, the former colonial power, in 1965. According to Smith he renounced claims to British citizenship in 1984, but did not renounce again last year under new rules passed by President Robert Mugabe's ruling party banning dual citizenship. Under the new law, even those who did not possess foreign passports were required to renounce all rights to foreign nationality. By ignoring it, Smith is still entitled to British nationality through his British-born father.

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.

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.

Various of St Peter's Square STORYLINE Roman Catholic cardinals at the Vatican remained tight-lipped on Friday as they began a final series of meetings ahead of the Conclave, due to start on Monday afternoon. Cardinal Walter Kasper of Germany said the talks were going well, and he was hoping for a good result. The cardinals have been meeting for the past week to discuss the forthcoming election, which will decide the future direction of the Catholic church following the death of John Paul II. Many are speculating about the selection process of picking the successor to Pope John Paul II. Some pilgrims gathered at Saint Peter's Square said they want to see a Latin American pope succeed John Paul. Latin America will have 20 cardinals in the conclave, and some observers think the predominantly Spanish-speaking region could have its first pope. Among the most talked about candidates is Honduras Cardinal Oscar Andres Rodriguez Maradiaga. Like John Paul II, who was the first non-Italian pope in 455 years, high on his resume are his skills as a linguist, including command of Italian.

(Reporter: "People are continuing to die.") "The work has been given, assigned to Kofi Annan." (Reporter: Will you go to Nairobi?) "To do what?" (Reporter: "I don't know, I'm asking you.") "To do what? There is Kofi Annan, Kofi Annan is enough there with his team." 13. Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe and aides making way through delegates 14. Various of Mbeki leaving UNECA building after meeting STORYLINE: President Mwai Kibaki of Kenya on Friday indicated his rival, opposition leader Raila Odinga, should go to court to resolve the country's deadly presidential election dispute. The Kenyan leader was briefing leaders at the African Union (AU) summit on the elections, according to a Kenyan government statement. The situation in Kenya continued to dominate discussions as African leaders met in Addis Ababa for a second day of talks at the three-day AU summit. More than 800 people have been killed across Kenya and tens of thousands have fled their homes since a December 27 vote Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki is accused of rigging. Kibaki indicated that progress was being made in the talks, and outgoing AU Chairperson John Kufuor assured reporters that the union was standing firm behind former United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan "to try to achieve a mutually acceptable role for all sides." Talks aimed at ending the crisis, being mediated by Annan, resumed on Friday with an address by his successor, Ban Ki-moon, who appealed to negotiators to "look beyond the individual interest". Ban also met on Friday with Odinga, who accuses Kibaki of stealing December 27 elections and demands a new vote. Kibaki has made clear his position as president is non-negotiable, and the international community is pressing the two to share power. In Ethiopia, Kibaki, who met with Ban Ki-moon a day earlier, welcomed the international mediation effort. But his reiteration of the suggestion the opposition go to the courts indicated the two rivals remain far apart and that negotiations could well be protracted. Still, Kibaki pointed to the start of talks as a hopeful sign, and said: "I am optimistic that we will arrive at a lasting political solution". Tanzanian President Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete, also the AU's new chairperson, said Annan and his team would be "enough" to deal with the situation in Kenya.

USA: BEVERLY HILLS: MOURNERS BID FAREWELL TO FRANK SINATRA
 
03:10
Natural Sound Frank Sinatra fans gathered by the hundreds outside a church today as family and a who's who of the entertainment world came to bid a final farewell. More than 400 friends were invited to his noon funeral, a liturgy planned to feature uplifting music and remembrances by Frank Sinatra Jr., Gregory Peck and others. The Good Shepherd Roman Catholic Church had been transformed into a forest of white flowers for the service. Sinatra's casket was blanketed with gardenias. Mourners who entered the church today included former first lady Nancy Reagan, Tony Bennett, Joey Bishop, Don Rickles, Paul Anka, Tony Curtis, Sophia Loren, Wayne Newton, Milton Berle and Dionne Warwick. Also seen were Red Buttons, Tim Conway, Diahann Carroll, Angie Dickinson, Marlo Thomas, Phil Donahue, Tony Danza, Ed McMahon and Tom Dreesen, the comic who opened for Sinatra for many years. As a skywriter sketched a white heart in the sunny sky, Cardinal Roger Mahony, archbishop of Los Angeles, followed a procession of altar servers into Good Shepherd Church to celebrate the noon Mass. A glossy white ticket with "Francis Albert Sinatra Funeral Mass" printed in purple was required to enter Good Shepherd Roman Catholic Church, which was transformed into a forest of white flowers. Sinatra's widow, Barbara, and a family contingent were to later accompany Sinatra's casket to the Palm Springs area. The interment site at Desert Memorial Park in Cathedral City is where his mother, Natalie "Dolly" Sinatra, and father, Anthony Martin Sinatra, are buried. Sinatra was 82 when he died Thursday of heart failure.

Mid of Escalona's relatives waiting for lift, surrounded by media STORYLINE: A Dallas woman who beat her two-year-old daughter and glued the toddler's hands to a wall was sentenced in the US on Friday to 99 years in prison. State District Judge Larry Mitchell announced Elizabeth Escalona's sentence at the end of a five-day hearing. Prosecutor Eren Price, who originally offered Escalona a plea deal for 45 years, had argued that she now thought she deserved life. Mitchell said his decision came down to one thing. "On September 7th, 2011, you savagely beat your child to the edge of death," he said. "For this you must be punished." Escalona's other children told authorities their mother attacked two-year-old Jocelyn Cedillo because of potty training problems. Police said she kicked her daughter in the stomach, beat her with a milk jug, then stuck her hands to an apartment wall with an adhesive commonly known as "super glue." Jocelyn suffered bleeding in her brain, a fractured rib, multiple bruises and bite marks, a doctor testified. Some skin had been torn off her hands, where doctors also found glue residue and white paint chips from the apartment wall. Escalona pleaded guilty in July to one count of felony injury to a child. Price said Escalona would be eligible to apply for parole in 30 years. "I think everybody has obstacles in their life and the day that the justice system sends the message to people with obstacles that that becomes some excuse for your bad behaviour, for your poor choices, is the day that we should just open the doors of the jail up and let everybody out," said Price. Escalona's attorney, Angie N'Duka, had asked for probation or a prison sentence shorter than 10 years. She argued that her client was the product of a broken home, abuse and a childhood that included illegal drugs and gangs. "She's not evil, that's all I can tell you. Elizabeth Escalona is a child who never developed, who never had a childhood," N'Duka said. Escalona's five children, including Jocelyn and a baby born after the attack, are in the care of their grandmother, Ofeila Escalona. She had asked for leniency for her daughter.

SOUNDBITE: (Arabic) Hassan Ankoni, Released Lebanese Prisoner: "This is a great victory for us and with God's help we'll liberate the rest of our land and Shabaa (a village on the border of Israel and Lebanon) and our prisoners from the Israeli prisons." 14. Various of former prisoners in airport building STORYLINE: Lebanese and other Arab prisoners freed in a mass exchange of prisoners with Israel arrived in Beirut on Thursday night to a rousing welcome from the Cabinet and thousands of people. The German government plane, which touched down at 7:08 p.m. (1708 GMT), had flown from a military base near Cologne where the more than two dozen Arab prisoners were exchanged earlier on Thursday for an Israeli businessman and the bodies of three Israeli soldiers killed on the Lebanese-Israeli border in 2000. Minutes earlier, an Israeli plane landed in Tel Aviv, Israel, carrying the businessman, Elhanan Tannenbaum and the coffins of the three soldiers. Israel arranged a memorial service for the dead soldiers. Sheik Abdel Karim Obeid, a Hezbollah leader and one of the most famous prisoners released, was the first to disembark at Beirut airport. Sporting a long beard and white Shiite Muslim turban, he walked steadily toward a group of government officials. He was followed by another famous ex-prisoner, Mustafa Dirani, a leader of Hezbollah. Lebanese President Emile Lahoud, Cabinet ministers and Hezbollah guerrilla leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah welcomed the prisoners on the airport tarmac. Obeid burst into tears as his children and relatives hugged and kissed him. The other prisoners were also mobbed by their families. Thousands of supporters of Hezbollah lined the airport highway to greet the more than two dozen freed prisoners with flags, patriotic songs and fireworks. Hezbollah laid on a massive rally for the prisoners in its south Beirut stronghold. An estimated 10-thousand people had gathered for the rally by the time the plane landed. The Lebanese prisoners, who number 21 according to Hezbollah's Al Manar television, and seven other Arabs were flown to Germany on an Israeli Air Force plane early on Thursday. At about the same time, a German Air Force plane took off from Lebanon bearing Tannenbaum and the three soldiers' coffins. As part of the complex deal, Israel earlier on Thursday freed about 400 Palestinians to the West Bank and Gaza Strip. They were greeted by jubilant relatives, many of whom expressed thanks to Hezbollah. At a border crossing in south Lebanon on Thursday, Israel handed over the remains of 60 guerrillas to the International Committee of the Red Cross.

The five children who authorities say were slain by their father, Timothy Jones Jr., were remembered
 
02:12
In Mississippi, Timothy Jones' children were remembered at the Amory Church of Christ. A program showed a photo of each child smiling and offered a description of what they liked to do. The youngest, 1-year-old Elaine, loved giving high fives and kisses. The oldest, Merah Gracie, enjoyed dressing up like a princess, going to church, reading books and coloring. Two of the boys - 7-year-old Elias and 6-year-old Nahtahn - loved to fish. Nahtahn also liked to swim, ride his bike and dress up like Ironman. Elias dressed up like Spiderman. Their brother, 2-year-old Gabriel, enjoyed watching "Care Bears" and playing with the family. At the end of the description for the four oldest children, the program said: "loved wrestling with dad." On the pulpit area, there was a wreath on an easel with a photo of each child. Yellow and pink flowers and a colorful array of ribbons dotted the wreaths. Star-shaped balloons were tied to them. Jones killed his children at home "by violent means" about a week before his ex-wife reported them missing, Acting Lexington County Sheriff Lewis McCarty said. The motive and cause of death is still being investigated, authorities said.

But a Mexican company has found an innovative use for the country's growing mounds of plastic rubbish by turning it into low-cost housing. STORYLINE: Mexicans throw out more than four-thousand metric tonnes of plastic waste every year, and at the moment, about 90 percent of it ends up on landfills, waterways and beaches, according to the country's National Plastic Industry Association. Only about 10 percent of this plastic waste is reprocessed. Recycling facilities do exist in Mexico, but a lack of awareness among most people about the importance of reducing waste in the environment means that a large amount of plastic ends up on landfill sites. A company called Kuadro Ecological Solutions has spotted an opportunity among all the rubbish. Based on the outskirts of Mexico's second-largest city Guadalajara, Kuadro reprocesses plastic waste and turns it into plastic boards that can be used as a construction material. Every month, 40 metric tonnes of plastic waste from all over the state is sanitised and brought to the company's factory to be processed. Kuadro employs a team of workers to sort through a mountain of drinks bottles, chemical containers, supermarket bags, pipes and even car interiors. ==== You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/e697d8aacb8b5b106d48abda1ae84c1a Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork

UK: LONDON: NELSON MANDELA ADDRESSES PARLIAMENT
 
03:19
(11 Jul 1996) English/Nat The British passion for Nelson Mandela continues unabated on the third day of his four- day state visit. Full British pomp and ceremony surrounded the South African President at the Palace of Westminster, where he addressed both Houses of Parliament. He then left to host a special lunch at the Dorchester for the Queen. The huge medieval Westminster Hall was packed with people wanting to pay homage to Nelson Mandela. Ministers, M-Ps and peers gathered to hear a rare double address to both Houses of Parliament. The double address is an honour reserved for leaders of nations with particularly important links with Britain. Mandela is a leader like no other, in an age of cynicism he's been hailed as a man of integrity, honesty and courage. The Speaker of the House of Commons, led him to the stage. Betty Boothroyd was a member of the Black Sash Movement of white women who took part years ago in anti-apartheid vigils outside the South African Embassy. But British politicians have not always seen Mandela as a hero. In 1987, John Major's predecessor, Margaret Thatcher described the A-N-C as a 'typical terrorist organisation'. Baroness Thatcher sat subdued in Westminster Hall, perhaps reflecting the extraordinary reversal of fortunes which has the former political prisoner returning as President of South Africa. In his address, Mandela spoke of the need to bring peace, unity and equality to Africa. SOUNDBITE: Join hands to build on what we have achieved together and help construct a humane African world, whose emergence will say a new universal order is born in which we are each our brother's an sister's keeper. SUPER CAPTION: Nelson Mandela, South African President When quizzed by reporters on Margaret Thatcher's attitude towards him nine years ago, he made it clear that bygones should be bygones. On this, the first state visit by a South African president to the U-K, Mandela has had nothing but praise for the royal family, the government and the people. President Mandela was escorted out of the hall to the sound of trumpeters and the Band of the Grenadier Guards. He left to host a lunch for the Queen at the Dorchester. Doorman at the luxury hotel were already rolling out the red carpet in preparation for her majesty and a number of other high-ranking guests. Former Prime Minister Sir Edward Heath had heard the Westminster address. He congratulated the President on his words. SOUNDBITE: A tremendous reception and a very good speech this morning. SUPER CAPTION: Sir Edward Heath Paddy Ashdown, leader of the Liberal Democrats, had been deeply touched. SOUNDBITE: The sight of that frail figure there and all that he's been through, and with all that history behind it. I think it was very emotional. SUPER CAPTION: Paddy Ashdown, Leader of the Liberal Democrats Also on her way to the lunch, Margaret Thatcher was less willing to talk. Mandela had refused to meet the former Prime Minister on a trip to London in 1990. Mandela arrived, having swapped his dark suit for one of his trademark bright shirts. He stopped to shake hands in the crowd before going in to meet the Queen. They chatted and smiled before finally entering the dining hall.

But if you can't, and an overwhelming majority of the members go for something, I think it should work. My understanding is that the U.S., even though they may not be able to vote for the Council as it is now currently proposed, will be able to work with the Council, and so I do expect the Council to be established today. I am particularly happy about it because I think it's qualitatively better than the Commission. The President of the General Assembly has done great work working with all the member states to come up with a document that gives us a credible basis to move forward. And I'm sure the US, which has done so much for human rights, will find a way to work with the other member states to make the Council what it ought to be." 6. Mandela and Annan shake hands 7. SOUNDBITE: (English) Nelson Mandela, Former President of South Africa: "Kofi introduced a new approach of respecting everybody whether he is black or white, and trying to serve them.

Various of Kofi Annan and wife watching traditional dancers 11. Kofi Annan getting into a car to go 12. School children singing STORYLINE: United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan is sure a UN human rights council would be able to work with the United States, even if the US was to vote against it being established, he said on Wednesday. Annan spoke after meeting former South African president Nelson Mandela at the Nelson Mandela Foundation in Johannesburg. Annan said he was optimistic that member states would approve the creation of a new UN Human Rights Council despite vows by the United States to vote against the new body. US Ambassador John Bolton had rejected any compromise that did not reopen negotiations on the council and reiterated that the United States would vote against a resolution to create it on a Wednesday ballot in the General Assembly. A vote was considered likely despite Assembly president Jan Eliasson's repeated calls for the new council to be approved by consensus of the 191 member states. Annan said, "in a normal democratic process, if you can get unanimity, well and good. But if you can't, and an overwhelming majority of the members go for something, I think it should work." "My understanding is that the US, even though they may not be able to vote for the council as it is now currently proposed, it will be able to work with the council," Annan said. Annan noted that the US had done "so much" for human rights in the past. The 191-member UN General Assembly has been unable to agree on a replacement for the current UN Human Rights Commission, criticised for including among its 53 members notorious human rights abusers such as China, Cuba, Sudan and Zimbabwe, the AFP news agency reported on Wednesday. Annan is in the final year of a decade at the helm of the United Nations. Mandela commended Annan for his ability to identify with different types of people. "Kofi introduced a new approach of respecting everybody whether he is black or white, and trying to serve them. That is the type of Secretary General of the United Nations that we want." After meeting Mandela, the UN Secretary General visited Soweto and laid a wreath at the Hector Peterson memorial, to remember the first victim of the Soweto uprising of 1976.

Obama talks about relationship with Australia; joke about local accent
 
03:19
(16 Nov 2011) 1. Wide of U.S. President Barack Obama being introduced to speak 2. Obama walking onto stage 3. SOUNDBITE: (English) Barack Obama, U.S. President: "Our guys, the Americans, couldn't figure out why your guys were always talking about cheese. All day long. Morning, noon and night. 'Why are the Aussies always talking about cheese?' and then finally, they realised it was their Australian friends just saying hello. Just saying 'Cheers.' So, we Americans and Australians, we may not always speak the same way or use the same words, but I think it's pretty clear, especially from the spirit of this visit and our time together this evening, that we understand each other." 4. Wide of Obama speaking 5. SOUNDBITE: (English) Barack Obama, U.S. President: ++part of soundbite is overlaid with wide of Obama speaking, applause, close up of Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard++ "I know there's some concern here that your Australian language is being Americanised. So, perhaps it's time for us to reverse the trend. Tonight, with your permission, I'd like to give it a "burl" (I'd like to give it a try). I want to thank the prime minister for a very productive meeting that we had today. I think she'll agree that it was a real 'chinwag' (discussion/gossip). When Julia and I meet, we listen to each other, we learn from each other. It's not just a lot of 'earbashing', that's a good one, 'earbashing', I can use that in Washington, because there's a lot of 'earbashing' sometimes." 6. Wide of Obama speaking 7. SOUNDBITE: (English) Barack Obama, U.S. President: ++part of soundbite is overlaid with wide of audience, applause++ "It's that moment, in the midst of battle, when the bullets are flying and the outcome is uncertain, when Americans and Aussies look over at each other, knowing that we've got each other's backs, knowing in our hearts: 'no worries, she'll be right" (all will be ok). And so tonight, as we mark 60 years of this remarkable alliance through war and peace, hardship and prosperity, we gather together amongst so many friends who sustained the bonds between us and we can say with confidence and with pride, the alliance between the United States and Australia is deeper and stronger, than it's ever been, 'spot on' (exactly), 'crackerjack" (the best), 'in top nick' (perfect condition). Thank you very much everybody." 8. Wide of Obama walking back to table STORYLINE: US President Barack Obama endeared himself to the Australians in a Wednesday night dinner speech calling them "Aussies" and trying his hand at some local slang. "We can say with confidence and with pride, the alliance between the United States and Australia is deeper and stronger, than it's ever been, 'spot on' (exactly), 'crackerjack" (the best), 'in top nick' (perfect condition)," he said. Obama, who has announced a new security agreement with Australia that is widely viewed as a response to Beijing's growing aggressiveness, is on the second stop on a nine-day tour of the Asia-Pacific region. The agreement will expand the U.S. military presence in Australia, positioning more U.S. personnel and equipment there, and increasing American access to bases. About 250 U.S. Marines will begin a rotation in northern Australia starting next year, with a full force of 2,500 military personnel staffing up over the next several years. The U.S. and smaller Asian nations have grown increasingly concerned about China claiming dominion over vast areas of the Pacific that the U.S. considers international waters, and reigniting old territorial disputes, including confrontations over the South China Sea.

Close-up of Nelson Mandela nodding STORYLINE: Former South African President Nelson Mandela beamed on Monday as he watched his grandson reclaim a traditional leadership post that Mandela had renounced decades ago to become a lawyer and dedicate his life to fighting apartheid. 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.

Natural Sound The eldest son of Britain's Prince Charles and the late Diana, Princess of Wales, became a godfather for the first time on Thursday at the age of sixteen. Prince William, who is second in line for the British throne, took on his new role at a Christening attended by several members of European royal families. Queen Beatrice of Spain was among several members of European royal families to attend the Christening of six-month-old Prince Konstantine Alexios, son of Crown Prince and Princess Pavlos of Greece.

Prince William, who is second in line for the British throne, took on his new role as Godfather during the Greek Orthodox ceremony. He was one of seven other godparents. The 16-year-old prince, his left arm in a sling from a recent operation on a broken finger, took his hand out of the sling in order to hold baby Konstantine during part of the christening ceremony. Prince Pavlos said a close link between the two royal families was continuing as exiled King Constantine is William's godfather and the Prince of Wales is godfather of Prince Pavlos and of his daughter, Maria-Olympia.

Neither of course do I see my books subjected to a boycott. Finally however, after careful consideration, I made up my mind to come here.

It is something I keep in my mind, always keep in my mind while I am writing fiction. I have never gone so far as to write it on a piece of paper and paste it to the wall, rather it is carved into the wall of my mind.

In remarks he made after he received the 2009 Jerusalem prize, Murakami said he had been "advised" not to visit Israel after its ferocious assault on the Gaza Strip. But he said he ignored the warning. "Like many other novelists I tend to do the exact opposite of what I'm told," he said, to raucous applause. On a more serious note the novelist added, "I chose to see for myself rather than not to see." He had thought long and hard about his decision, he told the audience, which included Israeli President Shimon Peres. "I asked myself whether travelling to Israel at a time like this and accepting a literary prize is a proper thing to do and whether this creates the impression I supported one side in the conflict and that I endorse the policies of a nation that chose to unleash it's overwhelming military power." Murakami had said in an earlier interview with Israeli newspaper Yediot Ahronot that his main criticism of the Israeli offensive in Gaza was over the vast difference in size between the two sides.

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.

Mandela's former jailer on Robben Island talks about his former prisoner
 
03:30
The former Robben Island prison guard who befriended Nelson Mandela during his time on the island prison described him as a "father" and "a person which you can look up to." Christo Brand was a young jailer when Mandela, who had already spent a number of years in prison, was assigned to his guard. Brand and Mandela developed a friendship over the years of Mandela's imprisonment on Robben Island. Mandela was sent to Robben Island prison after being convicted of treason. The anti-apartheid campaigner was sentenced to life imprisonment in 1964 for leading a campaign of sabotage against the government. Brand was his prison warder from 1978 until Mandela's release in 1990. "We as a country will miss him, I will also very much miss his voice. Even to see him on a regular basis, I will miss that a lot," said Brand on Saturday. The anti-apartheid leader died on Thursday aged 95. Brand expressed his wishes for Mandela's family and said, "I am thinking of the family today, what they go through." "All these arrangements they have made for the funeral, and I hope everything run very smooth, and then also that they are not fighting, the family, that they can reconcile, and everything is quiet and that everything will be done. Mandela would want to go out really as quiet as possible," he said. Brand recollected the leader's wish to be buried in his rural hometown, Qunu. "If his last resting place was Qunu, that's what he said to me, I say to Mandela, "We must bury you on Robben Island." Then he just laughed he said "Why?', I said, "For tourist attraction". He said, '(For) that you should have made money, but I think I must go to Qunu.' That was him making a joke," Brand said. The state funeral and burial for the Nobel Peace Prize laureate will be held in Qunu, in the Eastern Cape province, on Sunday December 15.

UK: JAPANESE EMPEROR AKIHITO & EMPRESS MICHIKO VISIT
 
03:17
Japanese/English Former prisoners of war in Britain will on Thursday take their protest to the gates of Downing Street and deliver a letter to the prime minister before a visit by Emperor Akihito. It will be their fourth protest in three days as they continue to haunt the emperor during his visit. On Wednesday, Emperor Akihito managed to keep his composure as he was dogged by protesters during his visit to Wales. Former POWs also turned up later in the day as the emperor and his wife attended a white-tie dinner in London's financial district hosted by the Lord Mayor of London. The shouts of about 30 former civilian prisoners could be heard over the bagpipers welcoming the Emperor and Empress to London's Guildhall on Wednesday night. But once again, Emperor Akihito took the demonstrators in stride, continuing with his official duties, including inspecting the honour guard stationed outside Guildhall. It was the second day of protests over Akihito's state visit to the U-K, a visit which was at the invitation of Queen Elizabeth II. His trip has angered former prisoners of war in Britain, who are demanding a formal apology for Japan's treatment of them in the Second World War. But the host of the Guildhall banquet - London's Lord Mayor, Alderman Richard Nichols - assured his Japanese guests that they were very welcome. He added that Britain and Japan both wished to see a stable climate for investment. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Our countries have common interests and aspirations and we both wish to see a stable and prosperous world where investment in free trade and industrial services and products thrive." SUPER CAPTION: London's Lord Mayor, Alderman Richard Nichols At a Buckingham Palace banquet on Tuesday, Akihito had alluded to the protests, saying he and the empress could never forget the suffering of so many people during the war. During his speech at Guildhall 24 hours later, he said he hoped his visit would bring Britain and Japan closer together. SOUNDBITE: (Japanese) "The relationship between the two countries has developed into something important, not just in the economy or finance, but both countries can make contributions to each other. It is a development that I could not have expected during my first visit." SUPER CAPTION: Emperor Akihito Japan's Kyodo News Agency has quoted Prime Minister Ryutaro Hashimoto as saying that the emperor has done his best to express his own thoughts frankly without getting involved in politics. Hashimoto reportedly added that he hoped the Emperor's feelings would be accepted by the British people. But that hasn't been the case. Earlier on Wednesday, dozens of former prisoners-of-war turned their backs on Akihito as he arrived in Wales, the main centre of Japan's massive investment in Britain. The POWs have vowed to protest for the duration of the Emperor's stay in Britain. Later on Thursday, they will take their protest to 10, Downing Street where they will hand a letter to Prime Minister Tony Blair. The protesters have rejected his attempts at reconciliation. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Tony Blair said yesterday give him a warm welcome. I think he must be out of his tiny mind." SUPER CAPTION: Former P-O-W The emperor is due to attend a reception and lunch hosted by the prime minister at Downing Street on Thursday. The POWs have promised they'll be there to continue their campaign for an apology from Akihito and compensation from the Japanese government.

PAKISTAN: PRINCESS DIANA ARRIVES TO RAISE MONEY FOR CANCER HOSPITAL
 
04:56
English/Nat Britain's Princess Diana flew into Pakistan on Thursday to raise money for a cancer hospital, only to find herself accused of flirting and smack in the middle of a political scandal. The ex-wife of Prince Charles is in the eastern Punjab city of Lahore as the guest of cricket star turned politician Imran Khan and his wife Jemima. Diana stepped from the private Boeing 757 of billionaire financier Sir James Goldsmith with his daughter, Jemima and her six-month-old son Sulaiman. The former wife of Britain's Prince Charles was greeted by former Pakistan cricket captain, Imran Khan. Wearing a powder-blue shalwar kameez -- the traditional dress in Pakistan -- Diana looked cool despite the intense heat. Khan's wife Jemima seemed happy to allow her friend to remain in the spotlight of the world's press. Diana, who is the guest of the Khan's, is on a mission to help raise 27 (m) million dollars for her host's cancer hospital. It is her second fund-raising visit in as many years. That controversial visit led to critics at the time accusing her of trying to boost Khan's political career. His Justice Movement failed to win a single seat in national elections in February. But Diana's last visit remains controversial, with a Lahore socialite accusing her of having flirting with a waiter in Lahore in 1996. In Islamic Pakistan, where sex outside marriage is a criminal offence and many women do not venture outside the home without a veil, flirting is considered scandalous. Unperturbed by the accusations, which were making headline news in the local press, Diana toured Khan's Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre shortly after her arrival on Thursday. Khan, who led Pakistan's team to victory in the World Cup in 1992, set up the hospital in 1994 in memory of his mother, who died of cancer. He believes Diana's high-profile visit will have the donations flooding in. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Her (Diana) coming here and launching this fund mean we have a chance of collecting our 25 (m) million dollars. It gives us public-relationing, profile, we were able to because of her, invite the top donors in this country which we wouldn't have got normally." Q: How vital is it for you to get that money? A: "It is vital because it is very difficult to constantly keep raising money, eighty percent of patients are treated free. No government help and a hospital of this calibre an expense, especially a cancer hospital, we need an endowment fund otherwise we just cannot sustain this effort." Q: Bearing in mind what happened last year, have you been worried about her security and safety? A: Not at all, last year, I don't expect it to be the rule, and secondly the government has given her a complete state protocol, she is a state guest, OK." SUPER CAPTION: Imran Khan, founder of hospital, politician Diana will host a tea for hospital staff and top Punjab officials on Friday before returning to Britain on Saturday.

INDONESIA: MEDAN: VICTIMS OF AIR CRASH BURIED IN MASS GRAVE (2)
 
02:39
Natural Sound Forty-eight victims of Indonesia's worst air disaster were buried on Monday as weeping relatives threw flowers into a mass grave. The victims and 186 others were killed on Friday when a Garuda Airlines Airbus A-3000 B-4 slammed into the jungle in a thick haze near Medan airport on Sumatra island. Most of the bodies had been turned over to their families Sunday for private burial after having been identified. Rows of sombre looking Garuda Airlines employees watched quietly during Monday's mass burial ceremony in the western Indonesian town of Medan. The half-hour ceremony at the Mamborano Monument was held for 48 un-identified victims. The cemetery - just outside the fence of Medan's Polonia Airport - already contains 57 victims of a 1979 Garuda commuter plane crash. Indonesia's Transportation Minister Haryanto Dhanutirto led other officials in placing wreaths on two of the coffins and shovelling dirt onto them as the crowd of hundreds wept at the mass grave. Workmen then shovelled earth onto the coffins. As soil dropped onto the caskets marked with symbols for male or female, sobbing relatives pushed near to throw flowers and cry out names. The wails of distraught relatives grew until they were muffled by the motor of a bulldozer finishing the job. Investigators continued their search in the mud and jungle growth of the crash site for the flight data and cockpit voice recorders that could explain why the plane crashed on approach to the Sumatra island airport. President Suharto has asked Haryanto to move the airport and to review all operations connected with flights, pilots and safety. The haze that blanketed Medan on Friday and Saturday lifted enough on Sunday to allow 300 mourners to fly in and attempt to claim their dead. The state-run insurance company, P-T Jasa Raharja, said it will pay up to 13-thousand (US) dollars in compensation for each victim. It is awaiting details from Garuda to confirm the identity of the passengers. The dead included four Americans, two Britons, four Germans, three French, two Italians on their honeymoon, one Dutch, one Australian and six each from Taiwan and Japan. The haze that enshrouded the airport - caused by hundreds of forest and brush fires across Indonesia - is one of the possible causes being investigated. However, an airport official said the plane had been on instrument approach for the main runway.

SOUTH AFRICA: UNEMPLOYED & HOMELESS PROBLEMS
 
02:40
Afrikaans/Eng/Nat The homeless problem in South Africa used to be a problem that was confined to black people only. Now things are very different. Today, on the eve of South Africa's second all-race elections, stripped of their rights under apartheid, some whites find themselves in the same boat as their poor black compatriots. For some white people, begging is the only way out. Under the old political system their jobs were protected by law simply because they were white. That has changed. Today, everyone competes equally for the same jobs. For many whites, the 1994 elections changed their lives for the worse. Without legal protection for employment, they lost their competitive edge in the labour market and became redundant. SOUNDBITE: (Afrikaans) "For me the doors are closed, no open doors, that's why I'm on the streets because the promises that were made are closed. And now it's going to be closed again." SUPER CAPTION: Johnny Fourie, Homeless Person If it was not for handouts and relief help, Johnny Fourie and James Brown would not make it. Once a day they join a queue for food on Church Square Pretoria once the administrative capital of the apartheid state. Today it has become a haven for many of South Africa's white homeless people. Johnny and James lost their jobs shortly after the 1994 elections and have not been able to find work since. Without work there is no warm bed at night and no guaranteed meals. SOUNDBITE: (Afrikaans) "For whom are you going to vote? Nobody wants to unite. Everybody wants to have their own part. We are going to lost again." SUPER CAPTION: James Brown, Homeless Person For them the struggle of daily living has become a constant search for a safe place to sleep and odd jobs that will put food in their mouths. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The queue is getting longer by the day." SUPER CAPTION: Johan Smit, Salvation Army Official The Salvation Army runs a daily soup kitchen on Church Square. When they started out three years ago, there were only four to five people in their queue and they ran the service twice a week. Today they feed at least thirty people every day.

Wide of the meeting in the Palace STORYLINE: Former U.S. President George Bush and his wife Barbara joined the King and Queen of Thailand at the Chakri Maha Prasart Throne Hall in the Grand Palace in Bangkok on Monday. Bush, acting as a special envoy for his son, U.S. President George Bush, arrived in Bangkok on Sunday with his wife for a three-day official visit to deliver the U.S. message of goodwill for the 60th anniversary of His Majesty the King's accession to the Thailand throne. Their official visit is a reflection of long, cordial ties between the two countries. King Bhumibol Adulyadej - the world's longest-reigning monarch - is scheduled to host a formal dinner at the royal palace for his American guests, according to U.S. embassy officials and the Foreign Ministry. Bush is the third former U.S. President to visit Thailand this year, following the visits of Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton. Former President Bush was to be escorted to the dinner by Thai Prime Minister Surayud Chulanont whom he met in the Throne Hall. Surayud became Thailand's interim prime minister after a 19 September coup that Washington criticised as a setback to democracy. The coup ousted elected Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, who was widely accused of corruption and abuse of power.
