US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton walking in to news conference 2. Cutaway of reporter asking question 3. SOUNDBITE: (English) Hillary Rodham Clinton, US Secretary of State: "Well, I'm not going to speculate on, you know, what happens with their internal regime. Obviously, they have a huge credibility gap with their own people as to the election process, and I don't think that's going to disappear by any finding of a limited review of a relatively small number of ballots." 4. Cutaway of reporter 5. SOUNDBITE: (English) Hillary Rodham Clinton, US Secretary of State: "But clearly, these internal matters are for Iranians, themselves, to address, and we hope that they will be given the opportunity to do so in a peaceful way that respects the right of expression, and it has been, you know, my position and that of our administration, that we support the fundamental values of the people's voices being heard, their votes being counted." 6. Cutaway of reporter 7. SOUNDBITE: (English) Hillary Rodham Clinton, US Secretary of State: "We're going to take this a day at a time. We're going to watch and carefully assess what we see happening." 8. Clinton leaving briefing room STORYLINE US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Monday said the partial recount of ballots in Iran's disputed presidential election would be unlikely to heal the divisions between the Iranian regime and opposition supporters. Clinton told reporters in Washington the Tehran authorities were facing a "credibility gap with their own people" with regards to the election process and that this was unlikely to disappear "by any finding of a limited review of a relatively small number of ballots". Iran's election oversight body on Monday declared the disputed presidential vote to be valid after a partial recount, rejecting opposition allegations of fraud that set off an extraordinary wave of protests. Asked if the United States would recognise President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as Iran's legitimate president, she said the US government would "take this a day at a time". Clinton said she hoped the government would give people the opportunity to address their concerns in a "peaceful way that respects the right of expression" and that the US administration supported the "fundamental values of the people's voices being heard, their votes being counted".

She did not make any comments before being escorted inside. Thatcher had a pin surgically inserted into her upper left arm following her June 12 hospitalisation. She was Britain's first female prime minister and served three terms from 1979 to 1990. She has suffered deteriorating health in recent years, particularly from a series of minor strokes.

And we've got six killed, six injured." 7. Wide shot of the garden of Attorney General's office, where the battle happened STORYLINE President Hamid Karzai accused Afghan guards working for US coalition forces of killing a provincial police chief and at least five other security officers during a gunbattle outside a government office on Monday. In a harshly worded statement, Karzai demanded that coalition forces hand over the guards involved. But the governor of Kandahar, Dr Thoryalai Wesa later said 41 Afghan private security guards connected to the incident had been disarmed and arrested by Afghan authorities. Gunfire broke out after Afghan forces moved into a heavily protected government complex in Kandahar and demanded the release of a man accused of forging documents who was being held there, said Kandahar's district attorney. The Afghan forces had allegedly threatened to release the suspect by force. "There was some kind of verbal dispute, some words were exchanged and eventually the shooting took place. And we've got six killed, six injured," the Governor of Kandahar, Dr Thoryalai Wesa said. Among the officials killed were provincial police chief Matiullah Qati and the province's criminal investigations director. Total death tolls from Afghan officials ranged from between five and 10 police killed. The killing of Kandahar's top police officer is a blow to security efforts in a province from which Taliban leader Mullah Omar once ruled the country. The US military said it was not involved in the shooting, calling it an "Afghan-on-Afghan incident". However, Karzai's statement suggested that the guards sought refuge at a US coalition base after the killings, and he "demanded that coalition forces prevent such incidents, which weaken the government". The situation lays bare the often testy relations between Karzai and American officials. The president's accusations come as thousands of US Marines and soldiers are deploying across southern Afghanistan, the Taliban's stronghold and a region where Karzai is also seeking votes from his Pashtun tribesmen ahead of the August 20 presidential election.

Medium same STORYLINE Honduras' new leaders on Monday defied growing global pressure to reverse a military coup, arguing that they had followed their constitution in removing a leftist president who attacked it. The Obama administration and European governments denounced the military's action. US officials said they were working for the return of ousted President Manuel Zelaya and European officials offered to mediate talks between the two sides. Zelaya was seized by soldiers and hustled aboard a plane to Costa Rica early on Sunday, just hours before a rogue referendum he had called in defiance of the courts and Congress, and which his opponents said was an attempt to remain in power after his term ends on January 27. The Organisation of American States on Sunday approved a resolution demanding "the immediate, safe and unconditional return of the constitutional president, Manuel Zelaya". "We cannot allow Latin America to return to the past that has been completely overcome," OAS chief Jose Miguel Insulza said, adding his organisation would "make no concessions to a regime that has installed itself in this way". Zelaya, meanwhile, on Monday joined presidents from around Latin America in Nicaragua for meetings on how to reverse the first coup in Central America in at least 16 years. On Sunday, before travelling to Managua for the talks with Central American leaders and the leftist alliance of nations, known as ALBA, he told reporters soldiers had seized him in his pyjamas at gunpoint in what he called a "coup" and a "kidnapping". Zelaya's close ally, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, took centre stage in the region as he defended the president by casting the dispute as a rebellion by the region's poor. He also threatened to "overthrow" the new leader sworn in by Honduran lawmakers on Sunday. Congress leader Roberto Micheletti has said he would only serve out the end of Zelaya's term, which ends in January following presidential elections set for November. His designated foreign minister, meanwhile, told Honduran radio on Monday that no coup had occurred, saying the military had merely upheld the constitution "that the earlier government wanted to reform without any basis and in an illegal way". Troops with riot shields surrounded the presidential palace on Monday and armoured military vehicles were parked in front. But soldiers made no attempt to clear pro-Zelaya protesters who were burning tyres and other debris, as well as blocking streets with downed trees and billboards. The Honduran constitution limits presidents to a single four-year term and forbids any modification of that limit. Zelaya's opponents feared he would use the referendum results to try to run again, just as Chavez reformed his country's constitution to be able to seek re-election repeatedly. Micheletti on Sunday that the army acted on orders from the courts and that the ouster was carried out "to defend respect for the law and the principles of democracy". But he threatened to jail Zelaya and put him on trial if he returned. Coups were common in Central America until the 1980s, but Sunday's ouster was the first military power grab in Latin America since a brief, failed 2002 coup against Chavez. It was the first military ouster of a Central American president since 1993, when Guatemalan military officials refused to accept President Jorge Serrano's attempt to seize absolute power and removed him.

Wide of Pop star Michael Jackson, centre, and director Kenny Ortega, left, are shown during rehearsals for 50-date comeback 'This Is It' concerts that were scheduled to take place in London prior to the singers death 2. Various of Jackson during rehearsals for London concerts STORYLINE Michael Jackson cuts a thin, gaunt figure in photographs of rehearsals for the "This Is It" London comeback shows he never got to perform. Mounting a comeback aimed at least in part on erasing the taint of years of scandal, Michael Jackson was to due to play a staggering 50 shows at the O2 arena, the first of them in mid-July. It was a schedule daunting enough that Jackson was training in recent months with Lou Ferrigno, the star of TV's "Incredible Hulk." But those involved in the production said Jackson was heavily involved in all aspects of the concert rehearsals. He had hired a personal trainer and was practicing with backup dancers and choreographers several hours a day. Randy Phillips, president and CEO of AEG Live, the producers of the London show, said Jackson was dancing as well or better than the 20-year-old dancers we surrounded him with. Maryss Courchinoux, a 29-year-old from Paris who said she had been selected as a backup dancer for the show, described the tour rehearsals as more arduous than the performances themselves. Jackson's family said he died of cardiac arrest on Thursday at UCLA Medical Centre. A person familiar with the situation, speaking on condition of anonymity because the person had not been authorised to speak publicly, said it was an apparent heart attack. Los Angeles County medical examiners completed their autopsy on Friday and said Jackson had taken unspecified prescription medication. Los Angeles County coroner's officials said their autopsy found no indication of trauma or foul play. But because of additional tests, an official cause of death could take weeks to determine. Jackson's family have requested a second private autopsy. There was no word from the family on funeral plans. Many of Jackson's relatives have gathered at the family's Southern California compound, to care for Jackson's three children. Michael Jackson's mother, Katherine, is taking care of the singer's three children and the family will go to court in part to protect her rights to custody, the family's spokesman said on Monday.

Various of investigators examining crime scene STORYLINE A Japanese man has been found dead on a small island off Java, Indonesia, according to an Indonesian television report. Broadcaster TV One said local police reported on Monday they had found the body of pearl expert Torao Inagaki on the coast of Ngrembeng Island, located in East Java Province. Video footage broadcast on TV One showed police cordoning off the ruins of a house which appeared to have been partly destroyed and burnt. Japan's Kyodo news agency reported local police suspect that Inagaki had been murdered. A local police chief said Inagaki had probably "been hit with something heavy", and that his body had been "dragged for around five metres" after he had been hit. Inagaki was found with injuries on the back of his head and bruises around his neck, and there was evidence to suggest his body might have been thrown into the sea, Kyodo reported. A few days prior to his death, Inagaki had told police he saw two men trying to access his office, Kyodo reported. Inagaki worked as a consultant at a pearl cultivation centre, the agency said.

The statue will be place in the famed Grevin French Wax Museum alongside other heads of state including French President Nicolas Sarkozy, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin. Founded in 1882 and modelling itself on London's Madame Tussauds, the Grevin wax museum recreates the world's great and the good, bringing back to life historical events. The waxwork of President Obama will join nearly the recreations of almost all US Presidents since 1882. Sculptor Eric Saint Chaffray explained that it wasn't easy to create a model of a man that he had never met, relying solely on press releases and photos. "We're presenting Barack Obama at the Grevin Museum in the context of a gathering of heads of state which is why he has kind of an official attitude, a little bit stiff," he added.

Close-up of hand dialling on a mobile phone with message reading on phone screen (English) "connection error" 9. Mid of hand holding cell phone STORYLINE Iran's election oversight body on Monday declared the hotly disputed presidential vote to be valid after a partial recount, rejecting opposition allegations of fraud and further silencing calls for a new vote. State television reported that the Guardian Council presented the conclusion in a letter to the interior minister following a recount of what was described as a randomly selected 10 percent of the almost 40 (m) million ballots cast on 12 June. Opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi had claimed that he, not incumbent President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, was the rightful winner and called for a new election, something the government repeatedly said it would not do. Mousavi supporters took to the streets in protest after the election, outraged by official results that gave Ahmadinejad the victory by a roughly 2-1 margin. The recount conducted on Monday appeared to be an attempt to cultivate the image that Iran was seriously addressing fraud claims, while giving no ground in the clampdown on opposition. Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and the Council already had pronounced the results free of major fraud and insisted that Ahmadinejad won by a landslide. Even if errors were found in nearly every one of the votes in the recount, Ahmadinejad, according to the government's count, still would have tallied more votes than Mousavi. In the hours leading to the announcement of the recount result, riot police were seen on the capital's streets and the mobile phone network appeared to have been cut off. Authorities cracked down hard on dissent, most recently on Sunday when riot police clashed with up to three-thousand protesters near the Ghoba Mosque in north Tehran. It was Iran's first major post-election unrest in four days. The reports could not be independently verified because of tight restrictions imposed on journalists in Iran.

The Iraqi government plans to hold a large party on Tuesday in one of Baghdad's main parks on the west side of the Tigris River that will include popular singers and fireworks. The celebration will be broadcast on the other side of the river on a giant screen that was being installed on Monday. US combat troops must withdraw from Iraqi cities by June 30 according to a security agreement that also requires all American forces to leave the country by the end of 2011. Some Americans will remain in the cities as trainers and advisers, but the bulk of the more than 130-thousand US troops in Iraq have assembled in large bases outside urban centres. The top American military commander in the Middle East, General David Petraeus, expressed confidence on Monday that Iraqi security forces are ready despite a string of deadly bombings in recent days. The blasts, which have killed more than 250 people in a little over a week, have raised concerns that violence will spike in Iraq's urban areas after the last US troops leave. But the Iraqi government has said its forces are prepared and has declared Tuesday "National Sovereignty Day," a public holiday that will be marked by festivities. Iraqi Foreign minister Hoshyar Zebari said the Iraqi government is "confident of the capabilities of our armed and security forces to handle security issues". US and Iraqi officials have warned they expect more violence in the coming days as militants try to undermine confidence in the government.

Honduras' newly appointed leader vowed to resist pressure from across the Americas to reinstate the president ousted in a military coup, as protesters burned tires outside the occupied presidential palace. Leaders from Hugo Chavez to Barack Obama called for the reinstatement of Manuel Zelaya, who was arrested in his pajamas Sunday morning by soldiers who stormed his residence and flew him into exile. Eight leftist countries pulled their ambassadors from Honduras. Roberto Micheletti, appointed president by Congress, insisted that Zelaya was legally removed by the courts and Congress for violating Honduras' constitution - allegedly to extend his rule. Zelaya's ouster was Central America's first coup in at least 16 years.

STILL of Debbie Rowe at court for Michael Jackson's trial STORYLINE: Michael Jackson's father told journalists on Monday that the planning for the pop star's funeral depends on the results of a second autopsy. Joe Jackson told reporters outside the family's Southern California compound that the second autopsy was under way, but he expected results soon. The county coroner conducted an autopsy on Friday, but deferred a decision on the cause of death. Joe Jackson denied reports that his son would be buried at his Neverland ranch. He also said that Michael Jackson's children were happy and are in the company of other children. Meanwhile, civil rights activist, Reverend Al Sharpton, who spent the morning with the Jacksons, said consideration of how to celebrate the legacy of the pop star must be done "carefully". And Michael Jackson's mother asked a Superior Court judge on Monday to name her administrator of her late son's estate so she can ensure the King of Pop's three children are its beneficiaries. The court filing states that Jackson's parents believe he died without a valid will. Supporting Katherine Jackson in her petition bid to administer the estate was Jackson's father, Joe Jackson. The court documents state that Katherine Jackson "intends to marshal assets of the decedent for the exclusive use of the deceased's three children - her grandchildren - after payment of debts and expenses of administration." Earlier, Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff granted Katherine Jackson's request to assume temporary guardianship of her son's children, but did not immediately rule on her request to administer their estate. Beckloff scheduled hearings for July 6 and August 3 to take up the matters, including whether to also approve a request by Jackson to become permanent guardian of her son's children. So far, a will for Michael Jackson, which might spell out his wishes for care of his children and his estate, has not surfaced. Jackson never told his family who he had in place to handle his business affairs, a person close to the family has told The Associated Press. The person, who requested anonymity because of the delicate nature of the situation, said they were told by the singer's phalanx of advisers that he likely had a will, but it may be many years old. When Jackson died on Thursday, he left behind three children: Michael Joseph Jackson Jr, known as Prince Michael, 12; Paris Michael Katherine Jackson, 11; and Prince Michael II, 7. The youngest son was born to a surrogate mother. The filing lists the children as living at the Jacksons' family compound in Los Angeles' San Fernando Valley. In her request to take over the children's estate, Jackson's mother listed its value as "unknown." "Minor children are currently residing with paternal grandmother," the filing states in an explanation of why Katherine Jackson should be appointed guardian. "They have a long established relationship with paternal grandmother and are comfortable in her care." The declaration states that Deborah Rowe is the mother of Jackson's two eldest children, but lists her whereabouts as "unknown." A family attorney said the Jacksons haven't heard from Rowe since Michael Jackson's death. For Jackson's youngest child, nicknamed Blanket, Monday's court filing states "None" for the mother. It also states that all three of children "have no relationship with their biological mother."

Pan of Bernie Madoff exiting car and walking into courthouse STORYLINE Convicted Wall Street swindler Bernard Madoff was sentenced to 150 years in prison on Monday for a fraud so extensive that the judge said he needed to send a message to potential imitators and to victims who demanded harsh punishment. Scattered applause and whoops broke out in the crowded Manhattan courtroom after US District Judge Denny Chin issued the maximum sentence to the 71-year-old defendant, who said he lived "in a tormented state now, knowing all the pain and suffering I've created". Chin rejected a request by Madoff's lawyer for leniency and said he disagreed that victims of Madoff's Ponzi, or pyramid, scheme were seeking mob vengeance. The judge said the estimate that Madoff had cost his victims more than 13 (b) billion US dollars was conservative because it did not include money from feeder funds. "Here the message must be sent that Mr. Madoff's crimes were extraordinarily evil and that this kind of manipulation of the system is not just a bloodless crime that takes place on paper, but one instead that takes a staggering toll," the judge said. Chin announced the sentence with Madoff standing at the defence table, wearing a dark suit, white shirt and a tie, and looking thinner than his last court appearance in March. He gave no noticeable reaction when the sentence was announced. When asked by the judge whether he had anything to say, Madoff slowly stood, leaned forward on the defence table and spoke in a monotone for about 10 minutes. At various times, Madoff referred to his historic fraud as a "problem", "an error of judgement" and "a tragic mistake". He claimed he and his wife were tormented, saying she "cries herself to sleep every night, knowing all the pain and suffering I have caused". "That's something I live with, as well," he said. Madoff showed no emotion earlier in the hearing as he listened to nine victims spend nearly an hour describing their despair. He then finally looked at the victims lining the first row of the gallery. "I will turn and face you," he said. "I'm sorry. I know that doesn't help you," Madoff added. One of the victims, Dominic Ambrosino, told reporters outside court that Madoff looked him in "right in the eye and it felt good". "He faced us, but the message the judge sent today, we're just hoping that things follow through," Ambrosino added. Before Madoff became a symbol of Wall Street greed, he earned a reputation as a trusted money manager with a Midas touch. Even as the market fluctuated, clients of his secretive investment advisory business, from Florida retirees to celebrities such as Steven Spielberg, actor Kevin Bacon and Hall of Fame pitcher Sandy Koufax, for decades enjoyed steady double-digit returns. But late last year, Madoff made a dramatic confession: authorities say he pulled his sons aside and told them it was "all just one big lie". Madoff pleaded guilty in March to securities fraud and other charges. The 171 (b) billion US dollars forfeiture figure used by prosecutors merely mirrors the amount they estimate that, over decades, "flowed into the principal account to perpetrate the Ponzi scheme". The statements sent to investors showing their accounts were worth as much as 65 (b) billion US dollars were fiction. The investigation found that in reality, Madoff never made any investments, instead using the money from new investors to pay returns to existing clients, and to finance a lavish lifestyle for his family.
