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.

He was 50. The person said Jackson died in a Los Angeles hospital. The person was not authorised to speak publicly and requested anonymity. The circumstances of his death were not immediately clear. Jackson was not breathing when Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to a call at his Los Angeles home, Captain Steve Ruda told the Los Angeles Times. The paramedics tried to resuscitate him and took him to UCLA Medical Center, Ruda told the newspaper.

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 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.

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.

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".
