Zoom out to wide of cemetery STORYLINE: The body of an Air France 447 flight attendant was buried in Rio de Janeiro on Thursday, more than three weeks after the Paris-bound flight disappeared with 228 people on board. Lucas Gagliano, 23, was the only Brazilian crew member working on the flight. A Rio de Janeiro native, Gagliano had relocated to France and had been working for the airline for more than two years. He had returned to Brazil to attend his father's funeral fifteen days before embarking on the flight on May 31st. Several hundred people attended his funeral at the Sao Joao Batista cemetery, including his mother, relatives and more than a dozen Air France employees in uniform. The Airbus A330 plane came down in the Atlantic after running into thunderstorms en route from Rio de Janeiro to Paris. The Brazilian military has led the search and recovery efforts for bodies and debris, while the French are in charge of investigating the crash and the hunt for the flight recorders, or black boxes. Rescue workers have recovered fifty bodies from the crash region near Brazil's Northeastern coast line. At least eleven bodies have been identified. In a written statement on Thursday, Air France Chief Executive Officer Pierre-Henri Gourgeon said two Air France employees had been identified. According to the release, the flight's pilot and a male flight attendant were identified. The airline could not confirm Gagliano as the identified crew member. The cause of the crash is unclear. The plane's two black boxes could be key to determining what happened. French officials said this week that military ships searching for the wreckage have detected sounds in the Atlantic depths but they are not from the flight recorders. Two French-chartered ships are searching an area with a radius of 50 miles (80 kilometres), pulling U.S. Navy underwater listening devices attached to 19,700 feet (6,000 meters) of cable. A French submarine is also searching.

Wide of vigil, pan to the church STORYLINE: Dozens of protesters, many of them of Iranian origin, demonstrated in parts of Europe on Thursday against Iran's attempts to silence dissent after a disputed election result. In Paris, around 50 Iranians protested in front of the Iranian embassy and in Berlin a candle-lit vigil was held. "European governments need to reconsider the relations with Iran, and also the economic sanctions, and what is most important, the Iranian resistance needs to be recognised as legitimate resistance," said Mansour Voyond, of the Iranian Society in Berlin. The protests came as Iran's embattled opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi vowed on Thursday that he wouldn't back down from challenging what he called a rigged presidential election despite the regime's increasing attempts to isolate him. Incumbent President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, proclaimed the landslide winner of the balloting, has accused US President Barack Obama of meddling in Iran's affairs. On his Web site, Mousavi levelled unusually strong criticism at the Islamic regime's leaders, saying they were "the main factor for the recent violence and unrest and have spilled the blood of the people." His allegation came nearly a week after supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warned the opposition to end street protests or be held responsible for any "bloodshed and chaos." Khamenei has refused to order a new vote despite the biggest demonstrations in the country since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

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.

Mid of Tatyana Golikova, Margaret Chan and interpreter leaving STORYLINE: The swine flu virus is "stable" with no mutations, World Health Organisation (WHO) Director General Margaret Chan said on Thursday in Moscow after a meeting with Russian Health and Social Development Minister Tatyana Golikova. Margaret Chan, how ever, underlined the importance of close monitoring of the spread of the virus, adding that it is "highly unpredictable." Chan arrived in Russia for official talks on the A/H1NA pandemic with the Russian Cabinet. Since the swine flu emerged at the end of April, experts have feared that it could mutate into a virus that combines the contagious nature of swine flu with the virulence of avian flu. The WHO declared a global pandemic earlier this month. In a global update on Wednesday it reported 55,867 laboratory-confirmed cases of the A (H1N1) virus in 108 countries and 238 human deaths from the disease since late March. Only three swine flu cases have so far been confirmed in Russia, with experts predicting the first wave of swine flu in November.

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.

People in front of White House fence STORYLINE: Throngs of people gathered at New York's Times Square on Thursday, stunned by the news on big screens that the "King of Pop", Michael Jackson had died. Gasps could be heard as newcomers read newsflashes that Jackson had died of a heart attack at age 50. People could be seen relaying the news to friends and family, making calls and sending text messages. Some in the crowd danced to Jackson's songs and called his name. Others stood in stunned disbelief. "I will always remember being in Times Square when Michael Jackson died," Michael Harris told AP Television. People danced and chanted Jackson's name outside the Apollo Theatre, where the billboard was cleared for the message, "In Memory of Michael Jackson. A True Apollo Legend." Jackson first performed at the Apollo Theatre with his brothers at age 9 in 1969. The Rev. Al Sharpton spoke to a crowd outside the theatre, many of whom clutched Jackson's pictures, played his music and imitated the singer-dancer's signature moonwalk moves. The civil rights leader remembered how Jackson called him in the middle of the night to ask to view James Brown's body after the soul legend's death in 2006. He said he last spoke with him a few months ago. In Washington DC people also reacted with sadness. 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, died on Thursday at UCLA Medical Centre after being stricken at his rented home in the Holmby Hills section of Los Angeles.

Wide of people crossing the street STORYLINE: People around the world reacted with sadness to news of the death of the "King of Pop" Michael Jackson, who passed away on Thursday aged 50. Uri Geller said Jackson once told him he was a "very lonely man" and that was because "nobody really understood Michael Jackson." "I think he was a happy man when fans were around him," added Geller. "He drank their love. He knew how to absorb their affection; the energy that they were emitting to him." Elsewhere, fans expressed their sorrow across Latin America and in Asia, where he was especially popular. Fans in Japan, South Korea, China, Hong Kong and the Philippines woke on Friday to the news of Jackson's death and spoke of their shock and sadness. Jackson died at UCLA Medical Centre in Los Angeles. Ed Winter, the assistant chief coroner for Los Angeles County, confirmed his office had been notified of the death and would handle the investigation. The circumstances of Jackson's death were not immediately clear. Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was 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. 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. 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 was preparing for what was to be his greatest comeback: He was scheduled for an unprecedented 50 shows at a London arena, with the first set for July 13.
