Wide of news conference STORYLINE: Hardline students protested outside the British Embassy in Tehran on Tuesday, as Iran expelled two British diplomats and accused Britain of meddling and spying. The government also dealt a fresh blow to the opposition by making clear it will not hold a new vote despite charges of fraud. Iranian state television said hard-line students protested outside the British Embassy in Tehran to protest at what they said was interference by the British in Iran's internal affairs. Witnesses said about 100 people took part, and protesters burned US, British and Israeli flags, pelted the building with tomatoes and chanted: "Down with Britain!" and "Down with USA!" The Iranian Fars News Agency released photographs of protesters burning flags. Iranian state English-Television, Press TV said on Tuesday that the government had refused to grant a permit for a protest by university students outside the British embassy in Tehran, but it appeared that refusal had been flouted. Also in Tehran on Tuesday, a group of hardline students held a news conference outside the building formerly occupied by the US embassy, and called on the government to cut off relations with the United Kingdom. The US embassy building in Tehran has been empty since formal relations were broken off after hardline students stormed it in 1979, sparking the Iranian hostage crisis. Iran's Foreign Ministry said it expelled the two Britons for "unconventional behaviour," state television reported, and Britain announced it was sending two Iranian diplomats home in retaliation. Tensions between Iran and Britain have soared in recent days. During Friday prayers at Tehran University, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei lashed out against Western countries he said were displaying their "enmity" against Iran, "and the most evil of them is the British government." And Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki has accused Britain of sending spies to manipulate the June 12 election. Iran's expulsions came a day after Britain sent home 12 dependents of diplomatic staff because the unrest had disrupted their lives. The US and many European countries have refrained from challenging the election outcome directly, but have issued increasingly stern warnings against continuing violence meted out to demonstrators. Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday praised the courage of Iranian protesters and called Iran the greatest threat to peace. Speaking in Rome on his first visit to Europe as prime minister, Netanyahu said the courage of the protesters "in facing bullets in the streets" deserved the praise of everyone around the world. Netanyahu said the images being shown of the violent crackdown on the protesters showed the true nature of the Iranian regime, and was making governments everywhere reassess their relations with Tehran. Opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi claims he was the true winner of the June 12 election, but the electoral commission declared President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad won by a landslide. Mousavi has been out of sight in recent days and there were no reports of violent clashes Tuesday, possibly a measure of the effectiveness of the crackdown. Residents in Tehran thronged the city's grand bazaar on Tuesday, as Iran's rulers stiffened their stance against protesters, firmly rejecting demands to annul the presidential election over fraud allegations. Authorities have in recent days set up a special court for detained demonstrators, and are keeping troops in riot gear on the streets to break up any gatherings. Shop owners in the bazaar said people were now returning, after several days in which customers had been too scared to venture out of their homes due to the demonstrations. In Italy, two prominent Iranian opposition figures took their case to Europe on Tuesday. Iranian Nobel Peace laureate Shirin Ebadi called on European Union countries to impose political sanctions against Iranian authorities to press for an end to the crackdown on demonstrations. Ebadi said she asked EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana and other EU officials to condemn the violent measures taken by Iranian government in dealing with its citizens. Iranian film director Mohsen Makhmalbaf also said on Tuesday that the government of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was trying to silence the Iranian people. "Either the Iranian people will die, or they will liberate themselves," he said, speaking at the Foreign Correspondent's Association in Rome. Makhmalbaf, who directed the film Kandahar, said he is a close friend of Ahmadinejad's main challenger, Mir Hossein Mousavi, and was speaking on his behalf even though he is not an official spokesman for the opposition. He called on western embassies in Tehran to provide shelter to those injured in violence or seeking to avoid Iranian authorities following street confrontations. He said he had been asked by Mousavi's aides to spread the word on what is happening in Iran. Severe restrictions on reporters have made it almost impossible to independently verify reports on demonstrations, clashes and casualties. Iran has ordered reporters for international news agencies to stay in their offices, barring them from reporting on the streets.

"They are dictators, they are fascists, they are killing people, without reason," said the protester. At least 17 people have been killed in protests in Iran since the disputed presidential election on June 12. Opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi claims he was the true winner of the election, but the electoral commission declared President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad won by a landslide, which sparked angry demonstrations over the past 10 days.

Side shot of Obama ending news conference and walking away STORYLINE: US President Barack Obama on Tuesday declared the United States and the entire world "appalled and outraged by the threats, and the beatings, and imprisonments of the last few days," referring to Iran's efforts to crush dissent. "I strongly condemn these unjust actions," Obama said in a news conference at the White House. But Obama insisted that "the United States respects the sovereignty of the Islamic Republic of Iran, and is not interfering with Iran's affairs," but "must also bear witness to the courage and dignity of the Iranian people, and to a remarkable opening within Iranian society." He said the Iranian government's strategy of blaming Western governments for instigating protests was "a tired strategy." "The Iranian people are trying to have a debate about their future. Some in Iran, some in the Iranian government in particular, are trying to avoid that debate by accusing the United States and others in the West of instigating protests over the election," he said. "This is not about the United States or the West; this is about the people of Iran, and the future that they - and only they - will choose. The Iranian people can speak for themselves," he said. His speech appeared to mark a toughening of his rhetoric after Republican critics at home pounded him for being too passive. When asked by a reporter whether his apparent toughening was influenced by Republicans John McCain and Lindsey Graham, Obama laughingly said "What do you think?" In Tehran, chaotic images of riot police beating and shooting protesters have seized the world's attention and heightened pressure on Obama to act - or at least speak out more strongly. At least 17 people have been killed in protests since Iranian elections last week. Protesters in Iran have demanded that the government there cancel and rerun the elections that ended with a declaration of overwhelming victory for hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Reformist presidential candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi says he won and has claimed widespread fraud. Obama was asked the killing of a young woman, Neda Agha Soltan, whose apparent shooting death was captured on video and circulated worldwide. Asked if he had seen the video and what his reaction was, Obama said it was "heartbreaking", and that anybody who saw it would see there is "something fundamentally unjust about that." Five months into his presidency, Obama defended his response to the Iranian tumult and pushed lawmakers to deliver on ambitious overhauls of health care and energy. Obama's appearance comes as his approval rating, while still high, and a little above average for news presidents, is slipping according to recent polls. The president took the podium after a troublesome week for the new administration. He's seeking to frame the Washington debate on his own terms after a stretch in which he saw even Democrats fret about the jaw-dropping cost estimates of reforming health care, a series of polls underscoring deep unease among independents and moderates over the soaring deficit, and Republicans challenge him to be stronger in his response to post-election turmoil in Iran. Obama didn't rule out shifting the US strategy toward Iran, which calls for an opening of dialogue with the reclusive regime. Obama said the United States has provided a path for Iran to reach out to the international community and engage with global powers.

Medium of officials watching recovery effort 12. Wide of workers and search dog at crash site 13. Medium of wreckage STORYLINE: Investigators looking into the deadly crash of two Metro transit trains in Washington DC focused on Tuesday on why a computerised system failed to halt an oncoming train, and why the train failed to stop even though the emergency brake was pressed. At the time of the crash, the train also was operating in automatic mode, meaning it was controlled primarily by computer. In that mode, the operator's main job is to open and close the doors and respond in case of an emergency. Debbie Hersman, an investigator with the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), said it was unclear whether the emergency brake actually was engaged when Monday's crash occurred. Hersman told reporters in Washington, DC on Tuesday that the mushroom-shaped button that activates it was found pushed down in the operator's compartment. Hersman said it was not clear when the button was pressed or how it got that way, and also said there was evidence of braking on the train's rotors, indicating it was likely that the operator tried to slow down. The train ploughed into a stopped train ahead of it at the height of Monday's evening rush hour, killing nine people and injuring more than 70 in the deadliest accident in the 30-year history of the Metro. Crews spent Tuesday pulling apart the wreckage and searching for bodies. Washington's mayor, Adrian Fenty, confirmed that all of the deceased had been pulled from the wreckage. Authorities also worked to determine why the train's safeguards apparently did not kick in. Investigators want to examine the mobile phone and texting records of the train operator, identified as Jeanice McMillan, to determine whether she was distracted before the crash, Hersman said. Safety officials were also investigating a passenger's statement that the train had stopped briefly then started again before the crash. On Tuesday, all Metro trains were running on manual control as a precaution against computer malfunction. The cars in the moving train were some of the oldest in the transit network, dating to the founding of the system. Federal officials had sought to phase out the aging fleet because of safety concerns, but the transit system kept the old trains running, saying it lacked money for new cars. Hersman told the Associated Press that the NTSB had warned in 2006 that the old fleet should be replaced or retrofitted to make it better able to survive a crash. "To date those recommendations have not been accomplished," she said. Metro has long pleaded for more funding to ensure the system's safety. The transit network is supported by the District of Columbia, Maryland and the Virginia jurisdictions that it serves. However, unlike other major systems, Metro has no dedicated funding source. Metro officials have long argued that the federal government should contribute because the trains serves the capital, and some 40 percent of rush-hour riders are federal workers. Metro General Manager John Catoe said last year it would take seven (b) billion US dollars just to maintain current service and keep the system running safely and reliably from 2010 to 2020. That includes replacements for aging rail cars. It would take (b) billions more, he said, to deploy longer trains and more buses to meet the projected increase in demand. The number of trips taken on Metro trains is expected to grow 22 percent to about one (m) million a day by 2020.

Close of rain falling on car 20. Various of cars driving through flooded streets STORYLINE: The tropical tempest Andres strengthened into the Pacific season's first hurricane on Tuesday, flooding homes, toppling trees and killing at least one person as it swiped Mexico's southwestern coast with wind and rain. Andres packed maximum winds near 75 mph (120 kph), just over the threshold of hurricane strength, but was expected to weaken over the next day or two, the US National Hurricane Center said. The centre of the storm as of 5 p.m. EDT (2100 GMT) was about 65 miles (105 kilometres) west-southwest of the port city of Manzanillo. Moving near 13 mph (21 kph) toward the northwest, it was forecast to pass very close to or over the southwestern coast later on Tuesday. Mexican authorities had posted a hurricane warning for the coastal strip from just south of Manzanillo to near Puerto Vallarta, and heavy rain flooded homes and wind blew down trees in the states of Jalisco, Colima and Guerrero. Rain poured down on Tuesday on the port of Manzanillo, where authorities opened 14 shelters amid forecasts that the storm would likely graze the city. Forecasters said Andres would then churn past tourist towns such as Barra de Navidad that are home to some American and Canadian expatriates. It was raining lightly in Barra de Navidad on Tuesday afternoon but hotels were already preparing for the storm. To the south, rain on Monday caused flooding in the resort of Acapulco that forced about 200 people to evacuate their homes. A fisherman drowned when choppy currents overturned his boat in a lagoon in Tecpan de Galeana, between Acapulco and Zihuatanejo, a state police report said. The sun peeked through cloudy skies in Acapulco on Tuesday, but the government closed all schools. The US National Hurricane Center said Andres could bring a coastal storm surge as much as three feet (nearly one metre) above normal while dumping as much as 8 inches (200 millimetres) of rain in a few spots. The forecast track showed the storm then weakening as it continued northwest along the coast before veering west into the open Pacific and just south of the Los Cabos resorts at the tip of the Baja California peninsula on Thursday morning. Late on Sunday, Andres became the first named storm of the eastern Pacific hurricane season, which began May 15 and ends November 30.

We only realised the next day that the car hit my son." 10. Muhammet Dirlik walking down steps, zoom out to mid 11. Mid of Muhammet Dirlik being photographed STORYLINE CCTV images broadcast on Turkish television showed a small boy being hit by a car and flying through the air, before getting up and walking away. The accident happened on 20 June in the town of Sanliurfa in the south east of the country. The CCTV video showed a car flying off the street and hitting four-year-old Muhammet Dirlik, knocking him down a flight of steps. He then picked himself up and walked off. A second taller boy can be seen running away from the fast-moving vehicle. The car crashed through the front window of a shop and was hauled back up onto the street with the help of a crowd of onlookers. In an interview on Monday, the boy, Muhammet Dirlik, said he had been wandering around on the pavement when the car knocked into him, but he had not been hurt. The boy's father Ibrahim Halil Dirlik, said the family had not realised until the next day that Muhammet had actually been hit by the car, and has assumed he was crying because he had been upset at witnessing the accident. The car's driver reportedly said he swerved to avoid running over a puppy and lost control of the car.

"Seven." 22. Wide of anti riot police at the airport STORYLINE: Peruvian miners in the Province of Junin blocked a major road on Tuesday as they demanded the government provide financial help to the mining industry, which is threatening to close a major operation in the region, leaving thousands unemployed. Protesters covered the road with large rocks and boulders, bringing traffic to a standstill. A day earlier, farmers gathered in front of Cusco's Airport to protest the privatisation of water sources. A man carrying seven home made bombs in a backpack was arrested at the protest, an unidentified airport security guard said. Meanwhile, the government on Tuesday authorised the use of military force in the country's south eastern region where anti-government protesters have blocked highways and burned down a local customs house. A declaration announcing the government decision was published in Tuesday's official gazette. The document also suspended a state of emergency in Peru's jungle provinces, where police clashes with Amazonian Indian protesters in early June left at least 30 dead. Indigenous protesters started blocking highways, rivers and a state oil pipeline in the Amazon beginning in early April, and violence erupted on June 5 when police broke up one road blockade. The protests eased after Congress revoked decrees that opened Amazonian tribal lands to private development. Peru's Indigenous people have been opposing the 11 decrees since last year that they fear would make it easier for private oil, logging and biofuel companies to acquire their traditional lands. The government argued the decrees were needed to bring investment and development to Peru's impoverished jungle.

SOUNDBITE (English) Leisel Jones, Swimmer and anti-whaling campaigner: "No, there's certainly no humane way to kill a whale and that is what we thoroughly believe in and Australians believe in that as well. I mean, these whales take an hour to die, they are using harpoons that denote inside the whales body." 15. Wide of news conference STORYLINE The International Whaling Commission on Tuesday met for a second day of talks on a possible deal which would reduce the number of whales killed each year. As the IWC continued its discussions, Australia's Environment Minister Peter Garrett joined representatives from the NGO: the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) to release a report about the growing popularity of whale watching. IFAW said during the last year 13 (m) million people around the world took whale watching tours, generating over 2.1 (b) billion US dollars in income. Garrett supported the findings of the report, and said it was possible to generate a "sustainable livelihood" from watching whales, rather than killing them. Anti-whaling campaigner Leisel Jones, who is an Australian Olympic gold medal-winning swimmer, presented Garrett with a poster displaying the names of 10-thousand Australians who rejected whale hunting. Japan, Iceland and Norway run commercial whaling operations which kill around two-thousand whales a year and they are reluctant to give up the trade. Anti-whaling countries including the United States, the European Union and Australia want to tighten the restrictions introduced by a 1986 moratorium. The Japanese fleet hunts in Antarctica and the northwestern Pacific Ocean under an IWC exemption for scientific research. Japan's government also argues that the international ban on commercial whaling violates its cultural traditions. Critics say the research programme is merely a cover for commercial whaling and that technological advances make it unnecessary to harpoon the whales. Militant environmentalists have clashed with Japan's whaling fleet in recent years in attempts to thwart its whale hunt. Delegates from more than 80 countries are examining an IWC compromise proposal under which Japan would swop at least part of its Southern Ocean research quota for permission to hunt in its coastal waters. The IWC last year asked a group of experts to seek a compromise deal on stock management and conservation. But in a report published last month the experts conceded an agreement on key issues was still beyond reach. Australia and New Zealand announced last week they will conduct a non-lethal whale research expedition to the Antarctic, a direct challenge to Japan's research program that kills up to one-thousand whales a year. The six-week expedition, to set sail in a New Zealand ship early next year, will prove that whales can be studied without killing them, the two governments said in a joint statement. In the latest Japanese hunt that ended in April, its fleet killed 679 minke whales and one fin whale over five months, below its stated goals of up to 935 minke whales and 50 fin whales. The international whaling body, the IWC, holds its annual plenary sessions from June 22-26 in Madeira, Portugal.

Various of delegates at climate change conference 2. Wide of US envoy for climate change, Todd Stern, taking seat at conference 3.

The legislation that I referred to a few minutes ago, the so called Waxman-Markey legislation would envision about a 17 per cent reduction from 2005 levels, again ramping up year by year all the way up to over 80 per cent by 2050. So, we will continue working with congress, trying to get legislation passed." 4. Mid of attendees at conference 5. People gathered in foyer 6. Wide of delegates at conference 7. Mid of conference sign reading (Spanish): "Third preparatory meeting of the Major Economies Forum on Energy and Climate." STORYLINE: US President Barack Obama's climate envoy dismissed recommendations that the United States and other developed countries reduce their emissions of greenhouse gases 40 per cent by 2020. "Our proposal involves about a 14 or 15 per cent reduction below 2005 levels by 2020, rising up to over an 80 per cent reduction by 2050," Todd Stern said on Tuesday at a conference on global warming in Morelos, just south of Mexico City. Stern was speaking at the end of a two-day meeting of the Major Economies Forum on Energy and Climate, a gathering of 19 nations and the European Union that together produce 80 per cent of the world's greenhouse gases. The group, called together by Obama, was trying to build a replacement climate change treaty for the expiring Kyoto Protocol. A panel of United Nations scientists had recommended that industrial countries cut carbon emissions by 25 per cent to 40 per cent by 2020 to avoid a catastrophic rise in sea levels, harsher storms and droughts and climate disruptions. Some poorer and island countries are pushing for reductions of as much as 45 per cent. After rejecting that idea, Stern pointed to progress on legislation before the US Congress that would require lesser reductions. He said the Waxman-Markey bill was expected to move to the floor of the US House this week for debate. The bill calls for a 17 per cent cut in US emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases by 2020 from 2005 levels, and an 83 per cent reduction by mid-century. Carbon dioxide, produced by burning coal and other fossil fuels, is the leading manmade greenhouse gas that scientists have linked to global warming. Such measures may not be enough to bring agreement on a climate change accord, which the United Nations hopes will be agreed on at a conference in Copenhagen next December. Stern said there were "still significant differences between the parties" on emissions levels at the talks. But the final document from the Mexico talks indicated only that "many leaders' representatives expressed support for agreeing to a long-term goal by 2050," indicating there wasn't even complete agreement on the idea of emission caps by that late date. Somewhat more progress was made on financing for emissions reduction, technology and adaptation to climate change. Mexico's proposal for a "green fund" to which all but the very poorest countries would contribute, and then receive funding for clean energy and environmental projects, appeared to be gaining traction. Stern voiced support for the proposal, adding that "there are a number of countries that sat around the table that also think it's an interesting idea." Unlike the current, largely private carbon credit market in which polluting companies pay to offset their emissions, the new, 10 (b) billion US dollar fund would be financed through government contributions and run by a multilateral agency, possibly the World Bank. Mexico's government said on Tuesday that it was open to including carbon credits in the framework of the proposed fund, to make more money available to poor countries to develop cleaner technologies and prepare for climate change phenomena like floods and droughts. Environmental activists said that while Mexico's proposal lacked compliance mechanisms to ensure that wealthy countries contribute, it was preferable to the current carbon credits market. Stern agreed there would be a need for "some sort of mechanism for a more regular provision and a more dependable provision of funding to poor countries." Norway has suggested a fund financed by proceeds from auctioning emission permits, but Stern said that proposal was "more amenable to some countries than others," without offering any specifics.
