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.

Various of fans holding signs at vigil outside hospital ABC - NO ACCESS NORTH AMERICA / INTERNET Los Angeles, California - 25 June 2009 22. Various aerial shots of fans outside hospital, with large banner reading "Michael Jackson is innocent" STORYLINE Fans stunned by the news of Michael Jackson's death were gathering all around the Los Angeles area, trying to cope with their grief and pay their respects. Jackson's body was taken to the Los Angeles County's Coroner's office on Thursday for an autopsy. His fans gathered across the street, some holding up signs, asking drivers to honk their horns for Michael. "He has left behind a tremendous legacy that will never be touched again by anybody," said fan Willie Green. On Hollywood's Walk of Fame, fans gathered to pray around a sidewalk star bearing the name "Michael Jackson," but it was the star for a local radio personality of the same name. Jackson's own star, in front of the historic Grauman's Chinese Theatre, was unreachable because of a movie premiere taking place there. After the premiere, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce planned to put flowers on it. Motown Record Corporation founder Berry Gordy said he was shocked at the passing of Jackson. At the young age of 11, Jackson became a star as frontman for his family's group The Jackson 5, which went on to become one of Motown's all-time biggest selling artists. "He was like my son," Gordy said, speaking from his Bel Air home late on Thursday afternoon, just hours after getting word of Jackson's death. Gordy remembers him as a man with two personalities. "When he was not on stage, he was loving, respectful and shy. When he was on stage, he was so in charge, you would not believe this was the same person. A showman from his toes to the top of his head," he said. Gordy recalls he was at first reluctant to sign The Jackson 5 to his label, coming off the complications of dealing with another one-time child star, Stevie Wonder. But he was impressed by young Michael. "He always wanted to be the best and was willing to work as hard as it took to be that," Gordy recalled. By the late 70s, both Michael Jackson and his brothers parted professional ways with Gordy, who was hoping they'd nonetheless reunite for a 25th-anniversary Motown celebration. Jackson's "Motown 25" performance of "Billie Jean" would help propel Jackson to his all-time popularity, with the best-selling "Thriller" album, and his being crowned the "King of Pop." Jackson would eventually be dethroned, both in terms of record sales and image. In recent years, he battled a variety of health issues. A number of friends and people who worked with the King of Pop said they were not surprised by his death. Michael Levine, a Hollywood publicist who represented Jackson in the early 1990s, said he had long thought the star was engaged in self destructive behaviour and that it could "only end in an inevitably bad and tragic way as it did today." "I wasn't surprised by this," he said. Fans could also be seen outside Michael's Jackon's parents house, in the Encino section of Los Angeles, laying flowers and candles, where Michael's father Joe Jackson arrived late at night. Fans also gathered outside the hospital where Jackson died, erecting a huge banner reading "Michael Jackson is innocent". 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 (m) 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.

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. Jackson married Lisa Marie Presley in 1994, and they divorced in 1996. Later that year, Jackson married Deborah Rowe, a former nurse for his dermatologist. They had two children together: Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., known as Prince Michael, and Paris Michael Katherine Jackson. Rowe filed for divorce in 1999.

Mid of police truck loaded with damaged motorbikes 7. Various of municipality workers cleaning the site 8. 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 13 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 40 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.

Exterior of Palazzo della Regione, where meetings are being held STORYLINE Security was tight in the port city of Trieste on Friday where the G8 Foreign Minister's were set to discuss a wide range of global issues from instability in Iran and Afghanistan to North Korea's ambitions. Foreign ministers of Group of Eight countries started their meeting with a working dinner on Thursday, and will end it at midday Saturday. On the agenda is a series of global issues, from counterterrorism to organised crime and piracy. According to the agenda, the leaders were seeking to find a common position on Iran's violent crackdown on protesters. Italy, the host of the meeting, said on Thursday it wanted to send a tough message, but Italian officials in Trieste also stressed the need not to further isolate Iran. Benita Ferrero-Waldner, the EU commissioner for external relations condemned the use of excessive force, and called for dialogue among battling parties within Iran. Italy originally invited Iran to attend the three-day gathering as a special guest, arguing that it could play an important role in stabilising Afghanistan, an important focus of the meeting. But Italy retracted the invitation after Iran failed to respond, and after days of violent clashes with demonstrators protesting Iran's disputed June 12 elections. The Afghan conflict will also be discussed on Friday and Saturday, with US envoy Richard Holbrooke and important regional players, including the foreign ministers of Afghanistan and Pakistan, joining in the discussions on five major points of discussion: border management, drug trafficking, economic development, refugees, and food security. In all, 44 delegations will participate in the meeting of the eight industrial powers, including representatives from the Islamic Development Bank, the International Organisation for Migration and the World Food Program.

Various of people loading ballots and voting material into a truck STORYLINE: The Honduran president vowed on Thursday to ignore a Supreme Court ruling ordering him to reinstate the military chief he fired, escalating a showdown that has threatened the leftist leader's hold on power. President Manuel Zelaya's attempt to hold a referendum on reforming the constitution has pitted him against the country's top courts, the attorney general, military leaders and even his own party. "When the army rebels against the President, we are going back in time to the stone age, we are going back to the darkest days of the Honduran nation," he told his supporters at a rally. "Members of the armed forces, you are part of the people of this country, don't let anybody blackmail you, don't let anybody use you. Step up for this country that is in search of reforms and the change that will go down in history," he added. Zelaya fired General Romeo Vasquez as head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff for refusing to support Sunday's non-binding referendum, but the Supreme Court ordered he be reinstated on Thursday. Zelaya, who sympathises with former Cuban President Fidel Castro and Venezuela's Hugo Chavez, has argued that Honduras' social problems are rooted in the 27-year-old constitution. He has not specified what changes he would seek, but opponents accuse him of wanting to emulate Chavez by expanding presidential powers and allowing himself to run for re-election. The referendum asks voters if they want a formal election on whether to call an assembly to write a new charter. The president's dismissal of Vasquez prompted the chiefs of the army, navy and air force to resign. The president himself announced on Wednesday night that Defence Minister Edmundo Orellana had resigned. Vasquez said he could not support a referendum that the courts had declared illegal, but he ruled out the possibility of a coup. Attorney General Luis Alberto Rubi, who asked the court to reinstate the military chief, is also urging Congress to remove Zelaya from office. Zelaya, a wealthy ranch owner grappling with rising food prices and a sharp spike in drug violence, is currently barred from seeking re-election when his four-year term ends in January.

Pan of theatre entrance STORYLINE People across the world reacted with shock and sadness on Friday to news of Michael Jackson's death in California at the age of 50. Michael Jackson's death on Thursday in California prompted broadcasters from Sydney to Seoul - where the news came early 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. Japanese fans were always among Jackson's most passionate supporters, and news of his death came as a huge shock. Tower Records' stores across Japan put up a special corner dedicated to Jackson on Friday. In Germany, party goers in Hanover spoke of their sadness at the loss of a musical great. Club DJ Tyron promised to play Jackson's music every night in memory of him. In Paris, early morning commuters couldn't quite believe the "king of pop" was dead. "I didn't think he was dead, are you sure he's dead?" asked one Parisian, Benoit. Another man, Apollinaire Baghnyan, paid tribute to the singer saying that his music "touched people of all age groups and all cultural origins." In Italy one man said despite being a great artist, Jackson "didn't leave a positive message to new generation". And outside London's Lyric theatre, which is currently showing a compilation of Jackson music, one man broke down in tears in disbelief at Jackson'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. 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 tried to revive him. His brother Jermaine says it is believed he suffered a cardiac arrest. However, he says the cause of his death "is unknown until results of the autopsy are known".

Female fan dancing 30. People chanting "Michael Jackson" in front of the Apollo Theatre 31. Apollo Theatre sign 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's family, friends, and fans reacted to his passing with shock, surprise, and sadness. Jackson died on Thursday at UCLA Medical Center 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 says it is believed he suffered cardiac arrest in his home. However, he says the cause of his death "is unknown until results of the autopsy are known." Police are investigating, standard procedure in high-profile cases. Fans formed a prayer circle in the front yard of Michael Jackson's modest childhood home on Thursday and hundreds more crowded the street after word spread that the "King of Pop" had died. Stuffed teddy bears and roses were left on the porch of the small white frame house in Gary, Louisiana, where Jackson grew up, which now sits empty, as neighbours gathered to light candles and pen notes of condolence. Jackson was born the seventh of nine children in Gary on August 19, 1958. He was 11 years old when the family moved out of the city after the Jackson 5 recorded their first album in 1969. Gordon Keith signed the Jackson Five to his Gary-based Steeltown Records in 1967. Decades later he sued Jackson family members over the rights to their early recordings with Steeltown. Keith, who still lives in Gary, recorded the Jacksons' first record, a 45 with side one "Big Boy" and flip side "You've Changed" released in 1967. Michael Jackson was 7 or 8 at the time. The Jackson 5 played two concerts at West Side High School in 1971, but Michael Jackson did not return to Gary until June 2003. It was his last trip to his hometown. Jackson's death was also the talk of a red carpet event in New York City Thursday evening. Actress and comedienne Rosie Perez said it was a sad day. Jackson family friend Rashida Jones said Jackson simply was "the greatest." Leonard Rowe, a former manager for Jackson, said he thought something like this might happen. "I felt it was coming. I felt something like this was coming, but there wasn't an intervention," said Rowe, whose home is covered in pictures of Jackson as a young man and entertainer. Rowe blamed what he called "the evils of the entertainment industry" which cared only for "his profitability, not about his health and well being." Jesse Jackson Junior noted that the pop star had recently lost a lot of weight and was struggling financially because his "business was under attack." 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 (m) 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. 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. Jackson also faced allegations of child abuse. He was first accused of molesting a 13-year-old boy in 1993; no charges were ever filed, a civil lawsuit was settled out of court and he always maintained his innocence. Although he had a chart-topping album with "HIStory" in 1995 and was still a superstar, he was a damaged one - and would never fully recover from the allegation. A criminal charge of molestation of another young boy in 2004, which resulted in his acquittal in 2005, further stripped his marketability and his legacy; after the trial ended, he went into seclusion, and while top hitmakers from Ne-Yo to Akon courted him to make new music, no new CD was ever released. Illusionist Uri Geller, a close friend of Jackson's, insisted he was innocent, saying he knew so by questioning Jackson while he was hypnotised. "I asked him 'Did you ever touch a child in an inappropriate way?' and he immediately answered: 'No, I would never do that!' and then I asked him 'Why did you pay off Jodie Chandler millions?', he said 'I couldn't take it anymore. I had enough'," claimed Geller. This "tragic trauma" and stress "got to him finally," Geller said. He went on to say that Michael Jackson would live on forever through his musical legacy and his fans, who have been filling the streets in cities across the US to pay tribute to their beloved star. At the Apollo Theatre in New York City, where Jackson first performed with his brothers at age 9 in 1969, the billboard was cleared for the message, "In Memory of Michael Jackson. A True Apollo Legend." About a dozen people danced outside the theatre to Jackson's music, with a boom box blaring "Don't Stop 'til You Get Enough." Traffic stopped in front of the theatre while cars honked. People clutched the singer-dancer's pictures, played his music and tries to imitate his signature moonwalk moves.
