Young boy dressed as Michael Jackson STORYLINE Michael Jackson, the sensationally gifted child star who rose to become the "King of Pop" and the biggest celebrity in the world only to fall from his throne in a freakish series of scandals, has died. He was 50. Jackson died on Thursday at UCLA Medical Centre after being stricken at his rented home in the Holmby Hills section of Los Angeles. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his home for nearly three-quarters of an hour, then rushed him to the hospital, where doctors continued to work on him. His brother Jermaine said it is believed he suffered cardiac arrest in his home. However, he said the cause of his death "is unknown until results of the autopsy are known." Jermaine Jackson said his brother's personal doctor and paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his rented home in Holmby Hills. A team of doctors at UCLA Medical Centre also tried for more than an hour, Jermaine said. Los Angeles police Lieutenant Gregg Strenk said at a separate news conference that police robbery-homicide detectives have been ordered to investigate, which is common in a high-profile case. Strenk said the coroner's office, which will handle inquiries into the type of death, is taking possession of the body. Across the United States, people reacted in stunned disbelief as word spread of Jackson's death. Within minutes of Jackson's arrival by ambulance at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Centre people began arriving by the hundreds, the crowd quickly filling a grassy entrance outside the hospital. Overhead, news helicopters whirred noisily and TV trucks clogged streets. Hundreds of people gathered outside the hospital as word of his death spread. The emergency entrance at the medical centre, which is near Jackson's rented home, was roped off with police tape. As word spread a few minutes later that Jackson had died, several people burst into tears. Others stood silently, looking pensive, as they waited for official word from the hospital. Angela, one of the fans gathered outside the medical centre, said Jackson's death would affect an entire generation. Another fan in tears said she was in disbelief. A similar scene played out just a couple miles away, in front of Jackson's tony Holmby Hills home, where a Fire Department ambulance had arrived earlier to take him to the hospital. Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music's premier all-around performer, a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage. His 1982 album "Thriller," which included the blockbuster hits "Beat It," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller," is the best-selling album of all time, with an estimated 50 million copies sold worldwide. He was perhaps the most exciting performer of his generation, known for his feverish, crotch-grabbing dance moves and his high-pitched voice punctuated with squeals and titters. His single sequined glove, tight, military-style jacket and aviator sunglasses were trademarks second only to his ever-changing, surgically altered appearance. Jackson ranked alongside Elvis Presley and the Beatles as the biggest pop sensations of all time. He united two of music's biggest names when he was briefly married to Presley's daughter, Lisa Marie, and Jackson's death immediately evoked that of Presley himself, who died at age 42 in 1977. As years went by, Jackson became an increasingly freakish figure, a middle-aged man-child weirdly out of touch with grown-up life. His skin became lighter, his nose narrower, and he spoke in a breathy, girlish voice. He surrounded himself with children at his Neverland ranch, often wore a germ mask while travelling and kept a pet chimpanzee named Bubbles as one of his closest companions.

Wide of blast site with onlookers standing STORYLINE : A booby-trapped motorcycle loaded with nails and ball-bearings exploded in a crowded bazaar in Baghdad on Friday, killing at least 15 people and wounding dozens, Iraqi officials said. It was the latest in a week of attacks that have killed more than 200 people ahead of next week's deadline for US troops to withdraw from urban areas in Iraq. The explosion occurred just after 9 a.m. (0600 GMT) when the market was packed with young people buying or selling motorcycles in central Baghdad, according to police and hospital officials. Nobody admitted the attack, but insurgents frequently target crowded market districts to try to maximise casualties. The motorcycle bazaar is only open on Fridays. The market has been hit by several bombings in the past, but Iraqis had resumed flocking to the area due to a sharp drop in violence. Attacks have continued on a daily basis despite the security gains of the past two years, but the recent bombings have been larger in terms of numbers killed. A medical assistant at one of the hospitals where the victims were taken, who identified himself as Abu Mohammed, said many of the wounded people had been struck by nails and ball-bearings and suffered severe burns. Police and hospital officials, who gave the death toll on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorised to release the information, said more than 50 people also were wounded. The escalation in violence is overshadowing Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's declaration of a "great victory" in the US pullout from urban areas by Tuesday's deadline. He has declared June 30 a national holiday to be marked with celebrations. US and Iraqi officials have warned they expect more violence in the days surrounding the deadline but insist the withdrawal will go ahead as scheduled. Under a security pact, the Americans must pull back from cities by June 30 and from the entire country by the end of 2011. But the continued violence has raised concerns about the readiness of Iraqi security forces to protect the people.

Various shots of Michael Jackson on stage and fans in crowd when announcing series of comeback shows STORYLINE Michael Jackson, the moon-walking former child star who became known the world over as the "King of Pop" before his life and career deteriorated in a freakish series of scandals, died on Thursday, at the UCLA Medical Centre in Los Angeles. Jackson died at the medical centre after being taken ill at his rented home in Holmby Hills. His brother Jermaine said it is believed Jackson had suffered cardiac arrest but that the cause of death will be unknown until an autopsy has been performed. An autopsy is planned for Friday, though results are not likely to be final until toxicology tests could be completed. Police said they are investigating. Cardiac arrest is an abnormal heart rhythm that stops the heart from pumping blood to the body. It can occur after a heart attack or be caused by other heart problems. Paramedics tried to resuscitate Jackson at his home for nearly three-quarters of an hour, then rushed him to the hospital, where doctors continued to work on him. Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music's premier all-around performer, a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage.

SOUNDBITE (Farsi) Ahmed Khatami, member of Assembly of Experts: "In this unrest, Britons have behaved very mischievously and it is fair to add the slogan of 'down with England' to the slogan of 'down with USA'." 9. Pan of Friday prayer ceremony STORYLINE A senior Iranian cleric called on Friday for harsh punishment for leaders of the country's post-election protests, even as a G8 foreign ministers meeting in Italy urged Iran's rulers to seek a peaceful resolution to the tense two-week confrontation over the disputed presidential vote. Iran's ruling clergy has widened its clampdown on the opposition, led by presidential candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi, who says he is the rightful election winner. Hundreds have been detained and according to state media 17 have been killed since the June 12 vote, in which President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was proclaimed the winner. In the latest sign that the regime is not bending, Ayatollah Ahmed Khatami, a senior cleric, said during a nationally broadcast sermon on Friday that the government should punish the "leaders of the protest, who are backed by the United States and Israel, strongly and with cruelty." In his sermon at Tehran University, Khatami also accused foreign journalists of false reporting on post-election Iran. He alleged that an icon of the protests, Neda Agha Soltan, was killed by protesters, not by Iranian security forces quelling unrest. "All the proof and evidence shows that they (protesters) have done it (killing of Neda Agha Soltan) themselves and then have raised propaganda against the system," he said of Soltan, who was shot to death a week ago. Soltan, 27, who was shot dead on a Tehran street, and grainy videotape that captured her bleeding to death was viewed by (m) millions on YouTube, has become an undisputed icon in the bloody struggle between Iran's ruling clerics and opposition protesters challenging the regime over the presidential election they contend was rigged. Basij militiamen have broken up even small groups of people walking together to prevent any possible gathering. Still, dozens of friends and relatives of Soltan managed to pay tribute on Friday, arriving at Tehran's Behesht-e Zahra cemetery in groups of two and three, uttering brief prayers, placing flowers on Soltan's grave and then leaving, witnesses said. Vigils for Soltan have been held around the world. During the Friday prayers, Khatami also singled out Britain for new criticism. "In this unrest, Britons have behaved very mischievously and it is fair to add the slogan of 'down with England' to the slogan of 'down with USA'," he said. Iran's rulers have accused the West, which has become increasingly vocal in its condemnation of the post-election clampdown, of meddling in Iran's internal affairs. Earlier this week, Iran expelled two British diplomat, prompting the expulsion of two Iranian diplomats by Britain. Iran has been restricting international news agencies from reporting events related to the recent election. AP Television applied to cover Friday Prayers in Tehran and authorities granted the request to do so.

Wide of the USS Arleigh Burke's deck STORYLINE: Fans on Friday reacted to the death of one of the world's most iconic pop idols, Michael Jackson. Jackson, defined in equal parts as the world's greatest entertainer and perhaps its most enigmatic figure, was about to attempt one of the greatest comebacks of all time. The 50-year-old musical superstar suffered a cardiac arrest and died on Thursday, just as he was preparing for what would have been a series of 50 concerts starting July 13 at London's famed 02 arena. The news stunned nearly everyone, from the young man in Colombia who was named after the King of Pop, to Malaysians who named a soy drink for him, to a generation of people around the world who have tried to moonwalk. Jackson's death on Thursday in California prompted broadcasters from Sydney to Seoul - where the news came early on Friday - to interrupt morning programmes, while fans remembered a "tortured genius" whose squeals and sliding moves captivated a generation and who sparked global trends in music, dance and fashion. France's new culture minister, Frederic Mitterrand, said Jackson's death held "incredible symbolic power." In Paris' streets, grief crossed generations who woke up to the news on Friday morning. At a music shop fans bought his records and said they would remember him "as the best" in the world. In Italy one man said Jackson hadn't left a positive message to new generation but the sadness was still great "because he was a great artist." In London, shocked fans gathered at the Lyric Theatre, where a live show based on Jackson's record-selling album "Thriller" is being performed, and waited for news about refunds for some 750,000 tickets to his sold-out, 50-night run. One man broke down in tears in disbelief at the pop star's death. "At first I thought it was a PR (public relations) stunt," the man said. "Once it was confirmed I was absolutely devastated, I was completely gutted," he added. In Germany, fans at the Madame Tussaud's wax museum signed a condolences book next to a Jackson statue. Stephen Heinze, from Madame Tussauds said despite Jackson's troubled life, his body of work remained and "we still see that people still like taking photos with the statue, and dance the 'Moonwalk' in the exhibition." In Moscow, Russian fans brought flowers and photographs of Jackson to the American Embassy. Admirers of the King of Pop left the numerous mementos on the fence near the Embassy to pay their respects. "It's a pity. I am so sorry. I think not only Russia, but the whole world marks it," said one man. Jackson visited Russia twice - in 1993 and 1996 and both times he was warmly welcomed Tickets to his concerts there were sold out long beforehand. In 1996 the Russian military officers, knowing his passion for various uniforms, presented him with a Russian military uniform and even taught him how to conduct the military orchestra. The passing of the music hero was also marked by US Navy sailors aboard the USS Arleigh Burke on course to the Seychelles. One sailor said his death had "hurt my heart" while another said she felt devastated and the news hadn't quite sunk in yet, because "he is not supposed to die; he is an icon." An autopsy was planned for Friday, though results were not likely to be final until toxicology tests could be completed, a process that could take several days and sometimes weeks. However, if a cause can be determined by the autopsy, they will announce the results, said a Los Angeles County Coroner Investigator. Jackson died at UCLA Medical Centre after being stricken at his rented home in the posh Los Angeles neighbourhood of Holmby Hills. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his home for nearly three-quarters of an hour, then rushed him to the hospital, where doctors continued to work on him. His brother Jermaine said he was believed to have suffered cardiac arrest in his home but the cause of his death was unknown until results of the autopsy were revealed. Cardiac arrest is an abnormal heart rhythm that stops the heart from pumping blood to the body. It can occur after a heart attack or be caused by other heart problems. Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music's premier all-around performer, a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage. His 1982 album "Thriller" - which included the blockbuster hits "Beat It," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller" - is the best-selling album of all time, with an estimated 50 million copies sold worldwide.
