Today, we speak with one voice; the rights of the Iranian people to assemble, to speak freely, to have their voices heard, those are universal aspirations.

The violence perpetrated against them is outrageous and despite the government's efforts to keep the world from bearing witness to that violence we see it and we condemn it."

SOUNDBITE (English) Barack Obama, US President: "And I'm really not concerned about Mr. Ahmadinejad apologising to me. I would suggest that Mr. Ahmadinejad think carefully about the obligations he owes to his own people. And he might want to consider looking at the families of those who have been beaten or shot or detained." 5. Cutaway of news media 6. SOUNDBITE (German), Angela Merkel, German Chancellor: "Let me tell you yet again very clearly. We are not going to shirk our particular responsibility, but it needs to be brought in line, as the President says, with the legal situation we have in Germany. We are showing a constructive spirit and we will come to a result. I'm confident of that." 7. Merkel and Obama walk away STORYLINE: Standing next to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, US President Barack Obama said on Friday the United States and Germany shared "one voice" in condemning the Iranian effort to crush dissent. He said Iran's leaders could not hide the "outrageous" behaviour of clamping down violently on their people. "We see it and we condemn it," Obama said. Obama spoke in a joint White House appearance with Merkel after they held talks. The two leaders have met three times since Obama took office, allies linked by such international troubles as the war in Afghanistan and a worldwide recession. Keeping pressure on Iran, Obama hailed the Iranian people. "Their bravery in the face of brutality is a testament to their enduring pursuit of justice," Obama said. "The violence perpetrated against them is outrageous. In spite of the government's efforts to keep the world from bearing witness to that violence, we see it and we condemn it." Obama also scoffed at the idea that he should apologise to Iran's leaders for criticising their violent crackdown on demonstrators. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Thursday compared Obama to his predecessor President George W Bush. Iran's violent post election chaos has captured the world's attention and elicited increasingly sharp condemnations from Obama. Iran's ruling clergy have widened the clampdown on the opposition since a bitterly disputed 12 June presidential election and scattered smaller protests have replaced the initial mass rallies. At least 17 people have been killed in a state-led crackdown on protesters. Ahmadinejad was proclaimed the landslide winner over opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi. On Iraq, Obama sought to offer perspective as sporadic but deadly bombings continued to unnerve the nation. US combat troops face a 30 June deadline to leave cities there, part of a broader and gradual withdrawal that is to end American involvement under Obama's watch. The president said bombings would continue, but overall Iraq's security had continued to dramatically improve." Obama said he hadn't "seen as much political progress in Iraq, negotiations between the Sunni, the Shia, and the Kurds, as I would like to see." Obama said Merkel had not committed to taking detainees from the US prison at Guantanamo Bay, but the German Chancellor said her country would not shirk its responsibilities. She was confident, she said, there would be a satisfactory resolution of the issue.

Pan of Friday prayer ceremony (FIRST RUN 1230 NEWS UPDATE - 26 JUNE 2009) 14. Worshippers praying 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. "About this woman who was killed and Obama (US President) sheds crocodile tears for her and the West makes a prodigy out of it; If any wise person sees this film (shot moments before Neda's death), would understand that this was done by protesters and rioters," he said. Soltan, 27, who was shot dead on a Tehran street a week ago. 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. Her death also has stirred President Barack Obama, who held her up earlier this week as an example for those seeking freedom and said it was a "raw and painful" loss. "This lady was in a quiet side street. If the system wants to crack down, will it do it in a main street. Why in a quiet alley? If that is the case, it would detain not kill," Khatami explained as his reason for Soltan's being shot by protesters. Meanwhile, Basij militiamen are reported to have broken up even small groups of people walking together to prevent any possible gathering. Despite this, 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 diplomats, prompting the tit-for-tat 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.

Vandegraft playing anthem on guitar STORYLINE As thousands of US troops head to southern Afghanistan this summer to fight against the Taliban, medical personnel at Bagram Air Base say they've already seen an increase in casualties this year and they are braced for more. The Obama administration has ordered 21-thousand more troops into the violent region to bolster the roughly 40-thousand already in the country. The US military says the deployment will let coalition forces pressure parts of the Taliban-infested south where extremists have not yet been pursued. The flow of dead and wounded at the SSG Heath N. Craig Joint Theater Hospital is putting an enormous strain on the soldiers and the medical staff who must face it head on. They say there is nowhere in the world - except other war zones - where physicians face such intense situations day after day. Medevac flight medic Sergeant Rob Walters says his team "tend to see the worst of the worst all the time". "It's stuff you hear about but you can't imagine it until you've actually seen it and dealt with it," he explains. June 1 was a particularly difficult day. Two roadside bombs hit the same convoy of 10th Mountain Division soldiers only a couple of miles (kilometres) apart in Wardak, a province west of Kabul. The damage was so severe that one of the Humvees split in half. By the time the medevac helicopters arrived, four men were already dead. Back at Bagram, the emergency room waited for the medevac teams to deliver the injured and all medical staff were prepared to move fast. Three of the soldiers injured in the bombings had open fractures in their legs, raw and bleeding. Wounds from blasts and explosive devices are considered the hallmark injuries of the Afghan war - because armour covers the body's core, injuries to arms and legs are common. One of the surviving troops - private first class Anthony Vandegrift of Mililani, Hawaii - had broken both legs and his left eye was swollen shut. Vandegrift called his father while still on the emergency room table. Recovering from his injuries a day later, he spoke about that phone call. "I said, 'Hey dad, remember how you told me not to join the infantry? Well, I don't regret it, but I got blown up,'" Vandegrift says. Recalling the blast, he says it was "like a video game almost". "Everything went black and I just remember 'boom'....when I was able to move around I was upside down. My chunk of the Humvee was blown off from the rest," he says. Vandegrift counts himself lucky to have survived the blast. A record 151 US military personnel died in Afghanistan in 2008, the deadliest year so far since the 2001 invasion. 2009, however, is expected to be even bloodier. According to an Associated Press count, at least 70 US troops have been killed this year so far - a 75 percent increase over the 40 US troop deaths recorded through the first week in June last year.

Low shot of cyclists, tilt up to them drinking water 15. Wide of cyclists riding along Beijing street 16. Mid of man on special bicycle 17. Tracking shot of cyclists STORYLINE: China's chief climate change official said on Friday a major US bill calling for nationwide limits on greenhouse gases is a key step forward but much more action will be needed to reach an agreement during talks on global warming at the end of the year. Speaking in Beijing Xie Zhenhua said the US climate change bill will give further momentum to the talks in Copenhagen and added that China was examining it carefully. The US House of Representatives will vote on Friday on the landmark bill, which introduces sweeping legislation that would impose the first mandatory cap on US greenhouse gas emissions. It would still have to pass the US Senate before becoming law. China and the US have long demanded that the other take steps to control greenhouse emissions. China has said that global warming is largely the responsibility of rich nations, which have historically contributed more to the buildup of greenhouse gases. Global climate change talks have been stalled over the reluctance of both nations to commit to emission reductions. Xie said that developed countries needed to take responsibility for their own history of pollution. Xie called for all countries to protect intellectual property rights of those pioneering new developments in climate change, but at the same time said that countries should also exchange ideas to reduce emissions. Meanwhile, at a Beijing mass bike ride dubbed the "Green Train", organisers called on the Chinese government to involve young people and grassroots organisers who are pushing for change. Erika Helms, from the Jane Goodall Institute, said she hoped there will be a consensus in top-down government policy, and also grassroots involvement in improving the planet. Asked what she hoped China could achieve in the next ten years, Helms said she thought China would lead the development of new technologies. China and the United States, the world's two largest emitters of greenhouse gases, account for an estimated 40 percent of the world's total emissions. Observers have noted that without the cooperation of the two countries, no global framework for climate change will be possible. The current Kyoto Protocol, which expires in 2012, was deemed largely ineffective because it made no demands on developing nations, and the US refused to sign it. This December, United Nations-led talks will seek to forge a framework for a global treaty on climate change in Denmark.

STORYLINE: The Los Angeles Fire Department on Friday released the emergency call from Michael Jackson's home in which the caller said the singer wasn't breathing or responding to efforts to revive him. The 911 call was reportedly made late on Thursday. The unidentified caller reported that a fifty-year-old male was on a bed, he wasn't breathing and wasn't responding to resuscitation efforts and was with his personal doctor at the time. Jackson was pronounced dead later on Thursday at University of California Los Angeles Medical Center. Medical examiners began an autopsy for Jackson on Friday morning, which was expected to last several hours. Additional laboratory tests, including toxicology tests, are likely and those results wouldn't be known for several weeks. Police investigating Jackson's death have seized a car that they said may contain drugs or other evidence. A police spokeswomen said the car belongs to one of Jackson's doctors whom police wanted to interview. She said she did not know the doctor's identity and stressed the doctor was not under criminal investigation.

During a meeting with Donald Tsang, Hong Kong's Chief Executive, Hau invited him to the opening ceremony, but Tsang said he would not be able to go due to work commitments. Hau has also proposed direct flights between Hong Kong International Airport and Taipei's Songshan Airport. It takes about one hour to travel to downtown Taipei from Taiwan's Taoyuan International Airport, where there are direct flights from Hong Kong now. Hau said it will be more convenient to the tourists and businessmen if the travelling time could be shortened. Hau also met Hong Kong athletes who will attend the Deaflympics and played table tennis with some of them. The 2009 Summer Deaflympics will be held in Taipei from 5 to 15 September and about 4,000 deaf athletes from 101 countries are expected to attend. In the wake of the swine flu pandemic, Hau said all the athletes going to Taipei for the games would need to go through checks to make sure they were well. When asked about a recent proposal to legalise prostitution in Taiwan, Hau said as the Taipei mayor, he and other Taiwanese wouldn't welcome any legalised prostitution zone in the city.

Various shots of fans singing "I'll be there" STORYLINE: Fans across the world on Friday reacted with shock and sadness to the death of Michael Jackson, one of the world's iconic pop idols. The 50-year-old musical superstar suffered 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 O2 arena. Word of Jackson's death jolted thousands, from Chinese students, to UK fans hoping to see their idol on stage this summer, to a generation of people around the world who have tried, in vain, to moonwalk. The dramatic death of the singer seemed to obscure his recent controversies and kindle warmer memories of Jackson the child star and Jackson the show-stopping, moon-walking headliner. A sombre crowd of about 100 young people gathered in Beijing for a candle lit vigil to mourn the singer's death. Fans arranged candles in the shape of the singer's name, held posters of the pop star and sang his songs. In the French capital Paris, hundreds of Jackson fans gathered in front of Notre Dame Cathedral. They held up his pictures, sang his songs, danced, cried and shouted in grief. 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. 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. Jackson's death prompted broadcasters from Sydney to Seoul to interrupt 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.

Mid shot sign STORYLINE: Police investigating Michael Jackson's death were looking for one of the pop king's doctors after seizing a car that they said may contain drugs or other evidence. As medical examiners began an autopsy for Jackson, police towed a BMW from rented home "because it may contain medications or other evidence that may assist the coroner in determining the cause of death," a police spokeswoman said. She said the car belongs to one of Jackson's doctors whom police wanted to interview. Rayner said she did not know the doctor's identity and stressed the doctor was not under criminal investigation. The autopsy began on Friday morning and was expected to last several hours. An official determination on cause of death was not expected for weeks or longer, until more sophisticated tests are completed. In a transcript of the emergency call released by fire officials, a caller reports Jackson was on a bed and not breathing or responding to cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The unidentified caller said Jackson only was with his personal doctor at the time. The pop star died later on Thursday afternoon at University of California Los Angeles Medical Centre. As stores reported they were inundated with orders for Jackson's music, a chorus of grief for the megastar spread around the world, from statesmen to icons of music to legions of heartbroken fans. Diana Ross, who helped launch Jackson's career, said she couldn't stop crying at the sudden and shocking death. Lisa Marie Presley, briefly married to the pop icon in the mid-1990s, said he had confided to her 14 years ago that he worried about facing the same tragic fate as her father, Elvis Presley, who died of a drug overdose at age 42. "The world is in shock but somehow he knew exactly how his fate would be played out some day more than anyone else knew, and he was right," she wrote in a long, emotional statement on her MySpace page online. The White House also weighed in for the first time, with a spokesman saying President Barack Obama saw Jackson as a spectacular performer and music icon whose life nonetheless had sad and tragic aspects. The House of Representatives observed a moment of silence. Brian Oxman, a former Jackson attorney and a family friend, said Friday he had been concerned about Jackson's use of painkillers and had warned the singer's family about possible abuse. Oxman claimed Jackson had prescription drugs at his disposal to help with pain suffered when he broke his leg after he fell off a stage and for broken vertebrae in his back. After Jackson was acquitted on child molestation charges in 2005, prosecutors argued against returning to Jackson items including syringes, the drug Demerol and prescriptions for various drugs, mainly antibiotics, in different people's names. Jackson died after being stricken at his rented home in the posh Los Angeles neighbourhood of Holmby Hills. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him for three-quarter of an hours there before rushing him to the hospital. His brother Jermaine said Jackson apparently suffered cardiac arrest, 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 was preparing for a monster comeback bid - a series of 50 concerts that was to begin next month in London. A handful of bleary-eyed fans camped out throughout the night with media outside the Jackson family house in the San Fernando Valley and near his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. People heading to work in New York stopped to pay respects outside Harlem's Apollo Theater, where Jackson performed as a child. A producer said Sunday's BET Awards would be dedicated to Jackson because of his influence on music and pop culture. And a screening of Universal Pictures' "Bruno" in Los Angeles on Thursday night cut a scene involving Jackson's sister La Toya. 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. His 1982 album "Thriller" - which included the blockbuster hits "Beat It," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller" - is the best-selling album of all time worldwide. Yet after selling more than 61 million albums in the U.S. and having a decade-long attraction open at Disney theme parks, Jackson died reportedly awash in about 400 million (m) US dollars in debt, on the cusp of a final comeback after well over a decade of scandal. The public first knew Jackson as a boy in the late 1960s, when he was the precocious, spinning lead singer of the Jackson 5, the singing group he formed with his four older brothers out of Gary, Indiana. Among their No. 1 hits were "I Want You Back," "ABC" and "I'll Be There." He was perhaps the most exciting performer of his generation, known for his backward-gliding moonwalk, his feverish, crotch-grabbing dance moves and his high-pitched singing, punctuated with squeals and titters. His single sequined glove, tight, military-style jacket and aviator sunglasses were trademarks, as was his ever-changing, surgically altered appearance. "For Michael to be taken away from us so suddenly at such a young age, I just don't have the words," said Quincy Jones, who produced "Thriller." "He was the consummate entertainer and his contributions and legacy will be felt upon the world forever. I've lost my little brother today, and part of my soul has gone with him." Jackson ranked alongside 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. Jackson's sudden death immediately evoked comparisons to 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 often wore a germ mask while travelling, kept a pet chimpanzee named Bubbles as one of his closest companions and surrounded himself with children at his Neverland ranch, a storybook playland filled with toys, rides and animals. The tabloids dubbed him "Wacko Jacko." After the enormous success of "Thriller," Jackson had strong follow-up albums with 1987's "Bad" and 1991's "Dangerous," but his career began to collapse in 1993 after he was accused of molesting a boy who often stayed at his home. The singer denied any wrongdoing, reached a settlement with the boy's family, reported to be 20 million (m) US dollars, and criminal charges were never filed. Jackson caused a furore in 2002 when he playfully dangled his infant son, Prince Michael II, over a hotel balcony in Berlin while a throng of fans watched from below. In 2005, he was cleared of charges that he molested a 13-year-old cancer survivor at Neverland in 2003. He had been accused of plying the boy with alcohol and groping him, and of engaging in strange and inappropriate behaviour with other children. The case followed years of rumours about Jackson and young boys. In a TV documentary, he acknowledged sharing his bed with children, a practice he described as sweet and not at all sexual. Despite the acquittal, the lurid allegations that came out in court took a fearsome toll on his career and image, and he fell into serious financial trouble. 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, now 12; and Paris Michael Katherine Jackson, 11. Rowe filed for divorce in 1999. Jackson also had a third child, Prince Michael II, now 7. Jackson said the boy, nicknamed Blanket as a baby, was his biological child born from a surrogate mother.
