SOUNDBITE: (English) Steve Helligan, British expatriate in Dubai: "We got into Dubai's property market in the early stages, so we have a very nice apartment here which we paid about 900,000 dirhams for, which in UK currency would be about 150,000 sterling. At its peak, about 18 months ago, it was worth probably 4 or 5 times that, and now, no one's really sure because there are few people buying because even if you have someone interested in your property, the banks have become so tight in terms of what they're lending it's hard for them to get a loan." 5.

Dusty windscreen, words written in dust: "80 billion dollars. What crisis?" STORYLINE As world markets absorbed the shock of Dubai's debt crisis, a British expatriate couple in the emirate who have to return home are having to sell their luxury apartment at a rock bottom price. Dubai's debt crisis became apparent in a surprise announcement on Wednesday, in which Dubai said it was seeking a six-month delay in paying creditors on nearly 60 (b) billion US dollars in debt held by its main development arm, Dubai World. Dubai World's holdings range from port operations around the world, Dubai's iconic palm-shaped island and the luxury retailer Barneys New York. The next tranche to be paid was a 3.52 (b) billion US dollar bond due on December 14 by Dubai World's troubled real estate division, Nakheel. It is the latest sign of Dubai's crash landing about a year ago as the global economic downturn ended a sizzling property boom, which saw prices skyrocket and investors lining up for new projects. The state-backed Dubai World led the charge with a catalogue brimming with ever-bigger ideas and the bold motto: "The sun never sets on Dubai World." Some projects were completed before the bubble burst, such as the Palm Jumeirah island that included a Hollywood A-list opening of the Atlantis resort in November 2008. But dozens of major projects, including entire mini-cities in the desert, have been shelved. On the beaches and in the busy sidewalk cafes of Dubai, there are little signs of that crash landing, but dust covered cars abandoned on streets near the airports tell a different story - many have been left there by expatriates abandoning the country with huge debts. For British couple, Steve and Arti Helligan, their dream of a new life in Dubai began in 1991 when they fled the United Kingdom's recession for Dubai and bought their luxury 3-bedroom apartment. Now they have to return to the UK to care for sick elderly parents, but the property crash means their appartment is worth less than half what it was worth just a year ago. They are selling it on a reverse auction site, rather than by the conventional estate agents method, because there just aren't the buyers around. For Dubai though, there is light at the end of the tunnel; on Saturday the ruler of the once-booming city-state left town for an important meeting in a desert palace. His hosts: the leaders of neighbouring Abu Dhabi whose balance sheets are flush with oil revenue. It's not known what promises were made inside the halls in Al Ain during the parade of visitors for an important Islamic feast day on Friday. But their new relationship is clear; Abu Dhabi has the cash and cachet to be Dubai'swhite knight - in a Gulf version of a too-big-to-fail bailout or to help calm markets with promises to intervene if Dubai's fiscal mess deepens. The direction Abu Dhabi takes will likely set the tone for the coming week as analysts try to sort out what banks and institutions have the most at stake in the money crunch - which has suddenly shifted Dubai's image from a desert dream factory of indoor ski slopes and luxurious hotels to an emirate known for big spending and unable to pay its bills. Much attention will remain on Abu Dhabi's response. It stepped in earlier this year with a 10 (b) billion US dollar bailout for Dubai when the first blast of the recession hit. Dubai ruler Sheik Mohammed has stressed the close bonds between the two most powerful emirates in the UAE, which celebrates its national day on Wednesday and offers a perfect forum to display unity. Yet Abu Dhabi's largesse may be reaching some limits. On the same day that Dubai announced its debt payment freeze, two Abu Dhabi-controlled banks bought 5 billion US dollars in Dubai bonds for a stopgap cash infusion, but went no further. What Abu Dhabi could get for its money, however, is greater long-term influence over Dubai's development policies. That would essentially mean giving the wealthy and more conservative rulers in the UAE's capital the task of trying to rein in Dubai after years of living beyond its means. Dubai's empty pockets - mostly drained by collapsing real estate prices and overambitious development plans - touched off panic selling across world markets on fears that the reckoning from the global recession is not over. On Friday, the Dow Jones industrial average suffered its biggest drop in nearly a month - closing down 154.48, or 1.5 percent, to 10,309.92, in a trading day shortened because of the Thanksgiving break. Asian exchanges fell sharply for a second day, but European markets bounced back on confidence the Dubai damage would not spread to other Gulf economies. Dubai and other Middle East financial markets reopen on Monday after an Islamic holiday.

Cutaway cameraman STORYLINE US Undersecretary of State William Burns arrived in Beirut for talks with Lebanese officials on Tuesday, as part of a Middle East tour set to shore up wider support for a tougher stand against Iran's disputed nuclear programme. Burns met with Lebanese President Michel Suleiman and Prime Minister Saad Hariri. After his meeting with the prime minister, Burns reiterated his country's support for "a just, lasting and comprehensive peace between Arabs and Israelis, with progress on all tracks of the peace process". He went on to reassure his Lebanese hosts by saying, "our efforts on the Palestinian-Israeli track will not come at Lebanon's expense." The US - together with Russia and France - have urged Iran to stop enriching uranium to higher levels and suggested the project reinforces suspicions that Tehran is seeking to make nuclear weapons. Their joint statement, made public on Tuesday, reflects unified Russian and Western opposition to Iran's increased enrichment. Shrugging off international concerns, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced the country was moving ahead to expand its enrichment capacities by installing more advanced machinery at its main enrichment facility. Ahmadinejad told reporters in Tehran on Tuesday the new centrifuges are not yet operational but are five times more efficient than the model now in use at its underground Natanz enrichment plant.

Cutaway of audience 5. SOUNDBITE: (English) Barack Obama, US President "There are 56 nuclear reactors under construction around the world: 21 in China alone; six in South Korea; five in India. And the commitment of these countries is not just generating the jobs in those plants; it's generating demand for expertise and new technologies. So make no mistake: Whether it's nuclear energy, or solar or wind energy, if we fail to invest in the technologies of tomorrow, then we're going to be importing those technologies, instead of exporting them. We will fall behind." 6. Wide of Obama speaking 7. SOUNDBITE: (English) Barack Obama, US President "Investing in nuclear energy remains a necessary step. What I hope is that with this announcement, we're underscoring both our seriousness in meeting the energy challenge and our willingness to look at this challenge not as a partisan issue but as a matter that's far more important than politics - because the choices we make will affect not just the next generation but many generations to come." 8.

Wide shot of Obama walking into job training centre 11. Obama walking through centre and looking at equipment 12. Obama walking into another room STORYLINE: US President Barack Obama announced on Tuesday he is making roughly 8 (b) billion USD in federal loan guarantees available for the first new US nuclear power plant in nearly three decades, underscoring the administration's efforts to reduce dependence on foreign oil. Discussing a plant envisioned for Burke County, Georgia, Obama told a union audience that the initiative will create thousands of construction jobs and 800 permanent jobs. He called it "only the beginning" of efforts to develop "safe, clean" energy-efficient technologies. Obama cast his move as both economically essential and politically attractive as he sought to put more charge into his broad energy agenda. Obama called for comprehensive energy legislation that assigns a cost to the carbon pollution of fossil fuels, giving utility companies more incentive to turn to cleaner nuclear fuel. "On an issue that affects our economy, our security, and the future of our planet, we can't continue to be mired in the same old stale debates between left and right, between environmentalists and entrepreneurs," Obama said in a stop at a job training centre outside Washington. "Our competitors are racing to create jobs and command growing energy industries. And nuclear energy is no exception." Rising costs, safety issues and opposition from environmentalists have kept utility companies from building new nuclear power plants since the early 1980s. Obama has been arguing that the country must develop cleaner energy technologies and modernise the means by which it powers itself. At the same time, he has said that policymakers must not conclude they have to choose between a cleaner environment and sufficient energy supplies to meet demand. Also, nuclear energy would help reduce US dependence on foreign oil and other fossil fuels. Pointing specifically to new nuclear reaction construction in China, South Korea and India, Obama said if the US does not start developing new nuclear power plants, it will "fall behind" the rest of the world and be forced to import "those technologies instead of exporting them." Even in promoting his case, the president conceded that nuclear energy has "serious drawbacks." He said a bipartisan group of leaders and nuclear experts will be tasked with improving and accelerating the safe storage of nuclear waste, and that the plants themselves must be held to strictest safety standards. "That's going to be an imperative. But investing in nuclear energy remains a necessary step," Obama said. But construction of the reactors - and the jobs the project is expected to create - are years away. The new 8 (b) billion USD in federal loan guarantees will go toward the construction and operation of a pair of reactors in Burke County, Georgia, by Southern Co. Southern Co.'s application for a license to build and operate the reactors is pending with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, one of 13 such applications the agency is considering. The earliest any could be approved would be late 2011 or early 2012. Southern Co. says the Georgia project would create about 3,000 construction jobs, while the new reactors would generate power for about 1.4 (m) million people and permanently employ 850 people.

Most of the people in Pakistan, the loving people of Islam, are giving the Taliban places to shelter, so these spy agency people can't follow them and then arrest them." 7. Wide shot of Muhammad meeting with party workers 8. Mid shot of flags flying; the white one represents pro-Taliban and black and white striped one represents support for Jamat Ullama Islam political party 9. Market stalls on street STORYLINE: The head of a pro-Taliban political party said on Tuesday that it did not matter if a senior Taliban commander is captured or killed as a replacement would quickly be appointed. Speaking from the Pakistani city of Quetta, Mualvi Noor Muhammad, the leader of Tehreeq Nifaz Shariat, a movement which supports the Taliban and is for the imposition of Sharia law, said there are over 20 council members that could replace any Taliban commander. Muhammad was referring to the alleged capture of the Taliban's top military commander, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, said to have been arrested in a joint raid by the CIA and Pakistani intelligence agency ten days ago in the Pakistani city of Karachi. Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar is the Taliban's number two leader, behind Afghan Taliban founder Mullah Mohammad Omar. It is claimed Baradar is also a close associated of Osama bin Laden. Muhammad denied widespread beliefs that some elements of the Pakistani intelligence community has supported Taliban leaders. He said people like Mullah Baradar could have received shelter from locals rather than intelligence agencies. He claimed that Taliban fighters used to be able to move freely within Pakistan, but were sometimes followed and arrested. Pakistan's intelligence agency has been accused in the past of protecting top Afghan Taliban leaders believed sheltering in the country, frustrating Washington. Moving against Baradar could signal that Islamabad increasingly views the Afghan Taliban, or at least some of its members, as targets for capture. Baradar headed the Taliban's military council and was elevated in the body after the 2006 death of military chief Mullah Akhtar Mohammed Usmani. He is known to coordinate the movement's military operations throughout the south and southwest of Afghanistan. His area of direct responsibility is said to stretch over Kandahar, Helmand, Nimroz, Zabul and Uruzgan provinces. According to Interpol, Baradar was the deputy defence minister in the Taliban regime that ruled Afghanistan until it was ousted in the 2001 US-led invasion. A Taliban spokesman in Afghanistan told The Associated Press that Baradar was still free, though he did not provide any evidence. Word of Baradar's capture came as US Marine and Afghan units pressed deeper into Marjah, facing sporadic rocket and mortar fire as they moved through suspected insurgent neighbourhoods on the third day of a NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organisation) offensive to reclaim the town.

Ahmadinejad told reporters in Tehran the centrifuges are not yet operational but are five times more efficient than the model now in use at its Natanz enrichment plant. Because enrichment can produce both nuclear weapons as well as reactor fuel, Iran is under three sets of UN Security Council sanctions for refusing to stop its programme. Its determination to expand such activities had been criticised worldwide even before an announcement earlier this month that Tehran would enrich to a higher level. Ahmadinejad on Tuesday showed little sign of bending to the will of his critics. Responding to calls for harsher actions against Tehran, Ahmadinejad said: "If someone wants to act against Iran, our response would not be like previous times; we will not advise or clarify or explain anymore. Definitely there will be a counter action that will make them regret as usual." The enrichment process has been at the heart of a UN-drafted proposal to provide Iran with reactor-ready fuel in exchange for its stockpile of low-enriched uranium. Iran has repeatedly blocked the plan with conditions and caveats. On Tuesday Ahmadinejad said the proposal to exchange fuel "has not been closed yet." "We are ready for (a nuclear fuel) exchange even with America. If the US comes forward to exchange fuel, we will do that. We have no problem with that," he said. New US sanctions imposed on elements of Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps reflect the Obama administration's stated strategy of punishing the elite corps and not the Iranian people over the country's nuclear and missile programmes. The US sanctions expand existing unilateral penalties against elements of the Guard Corps, or IRGC, which Western intelligence officials believe is spearheading Iran's nuclear programme. While the sanctions are aimed at changing the government's behaviour, it will be difficult to gauge their effect as it is not clear what holdings the targets may have in US jurisdictions. The administration is pushing to internationalise such penalties so they will have greater impact, and the announcement came as US officials lobby for similar action at the UN Security Council.

Wide of news conference STORYLINE: US President Barack Obama's top military adviser on Tuesday said all options are on the table to address Iran's controversial nuclear programme. Speaking in the Jordanian capital of Amman, US Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the international community was pushing to move sanctions through the UN. "There is a clear movement inside the international community to move to sanctions through the UN in the near future, and the continued progress that Iran makes with respect to developing nuclear capabilities is very worrisome for all of us," he said. In the past few days, US officials have sought to shore up support for a tougher stand against Iran's nuclear program by saying Tehran had left the world little choice. However, speaking to reporters after meeting with Jordan's King Abdullah II, Mullen said President Obama is still committed to initiating a dialogue and engaging Iran. Mullen insisted that Washington prefers resolving regional crises, including the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and the Iran diplomatic standoff, by diplomatic means. Mullen said Israel was following America's "diplomatic lead" on Iran. Mullen, who held talks in Israel and Egypt, will also travel to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. The US and others suspect Tehran is using its civilian nuclear program as a cover to build nuclear weapons. Tehran denies the charge, saying it has only has peaceful intentions. Shrugging off international concerns on Tuesday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced the country was moving ahead to expand its enrichment capacities by installing more advanced machinery at its main enrichment facility. Ahmadinejad told reporters in Tehran the centrifuges are not yet operational but are five times more efficient than the model now in use at its Natanz enrichment plant.

The administration is pushing to internationalise such penalties so they will have greater impact, and the announcement came as US officials lobby for similar action at the UN Security Council. On Pakistan, Mullen refused to comment on the alleged arrest of the Taliban's top military commander in Pakistan, announced on Tuesday. Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, the group's No. 2 leader behind Afghan Taliban founder Mullah Mohammad Omar and a close associate of Osama bin Laden, was captured in the port city of Karachi, US and Pakistani officials announced on Tuesday. The arrest appeared to have occurred as many as 10 days ago, and it was unclear if it had any effect on the Marjah battle.

Various of makeshift camps 13. Small boy standing outside his tent 14. Boys flying kite made from a plastic bag in front of temporary shelters STORYLINE: The Haitian president has called for a rethink on the reconstruction of his island nation following the devastating magnitude 7.0 earthquake that struck one month ago. In a rare interview, the battered country's president told AP Television on Monday that the country faces a long reconstruction process that will result in fewer people living in Port-au-Prince. President Rene Preval said strengthening infrastructure outside of the capital, in the provinces, will ensure that former Port-au-Prince residents are more likely to relocate outside the city. Preval said the reconstruction could take a very long time and it will take three years just to clear rubble from the shattered streets of Haiti's capital alone. A study by the main development bank for Latin America said the earthquake that ravaged Port-au-Prince might have caused nearly 14 (b) billion US dollars in damage. The preliminary study released on Tuesday said it could be the deadliest and costliest disaster they studied on a list that dates back four decades. Thousands of those who were made homeless by the earthquake were still without tents in Port-au-Prince and instead were living in tented camps and under flapping sheets of plastic. The international community and Haitian officials have decided that the survivors must make do with plastic sheeting until fixed shelters can be built. With an estimated 1.2 (m) million people displaced by the earthquake and some 770-thousand of them still in the capital, officials say there is no room for family-sized tents with their wide bases. Like many Haitians, Preval is scared to sleep inside. He said he was staying with friends until he could move to an earthquake-resistant structure. Days after the quake, Preval said he was considering sleeping in a tent. Preval also welcomed the visit of French President Nicolas Sarkozy, who will be flying to Haiti on Wednesday marking the first visit of a French president to the Caribbean nation. He was elected for a second mandate in 2006 after having led the country in the 1990s. A month after the magnitude-7.0 earthquake hit Haiti - the number of dead is above 200-thousand and is expected to rise as more victims are found.

STORYLINE Dubai police appealed for an international manhunt on Tuesday after releasing names and photos of an alleged 11-member hit squad accused of stalking and killing a Hamas commander last month in a plot that mixed cold precision with spy caper disguises such as fake beards and wigs. Dubai authorities said they would seek assistance from the global police coordination agency Interpol and press individual nations to hunt down the suspects in the killing of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, whose body was found January 20 in his luxury hotel room. Dubai's attorney general, Essam al-Hemaydan, said international arrest warrants had been issued for those accused of links to the slaying. Police issued a document identifying the suspects and their nationalities. They were named as: Michael Lawrence Barney, James Leonard Clarke, Jonathan Louis Graham, Paul John Keeley, Stephen Daniel Hodes and Melvyn Adam Mildiner of Britain; Gail Folliard, Evan Dennings and Kevin Daveron of Ireland; Peter Elvinger of France and Michael Bodenheimer of Germany. There was no immediate comment from Dubai-based diplomats from the countries linked to passports carried by the alleged assassin cell. However, officials in Ireland said the three alleged Irish citizens on the wanted list did not exist and in Germany, officials said the passport number given by Dubai for the lone German suspect was either incomplete or wrong. Other elements also challenged Dubai's narrative, including how investigators pieced together the evidence pointing to an alleged European assassin team, or why such an apparently well-planned operation would forget about Dubai's wide-ranging security camera. Dubai police claim the 10 men and one woman travelled to Dubai with European passports and killed al-Mabhouh less than 24 hours after their arrival. Hamas has accused Israel's Mossad secret service of masterminding the slaying and has vowed revenge. Dubai's police chief, Lieutenant General Dahi Khalfan Tamim, did not directly implicate Israel at a news conference on Monday to announce new details about al-Mabhouh's death. But he noted the possibility that "leaders of certain countries gave orders to their intelligence agents to kill" al-Mabhouh, one of the founders of Hamas' military wing. At least two Palestinians have been taken into custody in Dubai for alleged links to the slaying, according to Adnan Damiri, the police spokesman in the West Bank, citing sources familiar with the investigation. Damiri said the Palestinian suspects were Hamas operatives. But Hamas claimed the suspects were linked to the rival Fatah movement of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas as part of alleged clandestine links with Israeli intelligence. Dubai police did not immediately respond to requests for details on the reported Palestinian arrests. Tamim's news conference attempted to create a full narrative of the plot - including surveillance video clips - from the suspects' airport arrivals to their hasty departures before al-Mabhouh's body was found in Room 230 at the Al-Bustan Rotana Hotel near Dubai's international airport. Police added explanatory notes to the CCTV footage, detailing what they claimed the pictures show. AP Television cannot independently verify the content, date or location of the CCTV footage. Tamim's account portrayed the suspects as operating with chilling efficiency - arriving in Dubai at different times, checking into different hotels and tailing al-Mabhouh from the moment of his arrival in Dubai to when he entered his hotel room. Some of the suspects even rode in the same elevator as al-Mabhouh to verify his room number and later booked a room across the hall, Tamim said. They paid for all expenses in cash and used different cell phone cards to avoid being traced, he added. Tamim said some of the suspects disguised themselves as vacationers, wearing baseball caps or tennis outfits and carrying rackets. Some suspects donned fake beards, he said. Police claimed four assassins later entered al-Mabhouh's room while he was out, using an electronic device to open the door, and waited for him to return. Tamim said forensic tests indicated al-Mabhouh died of suffocation, but lab analyses were still under way to pinpoint other possible factors in his death. Hamas initially claimed al-Mabhouh was poisoned and electrocuted, but later a Hamas leader, Mohammed Nazzal, denied that poison was used. Tamim said that after the killing, the alleged suspects then headed for the airport, some of them flying to Europe and others to Asia. All were out of the United Arab Emirates within 19 hours of their arrivals, he said. Tamim did not say whether any of the suspects had been formally charged by prosecutors in Dubai, one of seven semiautonomous emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates. But local charges would be needed before the suspects could be added to the Interpol database or to begin any possible extradition efforts in the future. A Hamas statement last month acknowledged al-Mabhouh was involved in the kidnapping and killing of two Israeli soldiers in 1989 and said he was still playing a "continuous role in supporting his brothers in the resistance inside the occupied homeland" at the time of his death. Israeli officials have accused al-Mabhouh of helping smuggle rockets into the Gaza Strip, the coastal territory ruled by the militant group. Top Hamas figures have denied reports that al-Mabhouh was en route to Iran, a major Hamas backer, but the group has not given clear reasons for his presence in Dubai.

The Dalai Lama declined to take questions from reporters about the meeting on Tuesday. China has urged the US to cancel the meeting, saying it would damage relations between Beijing and Washington. China accuses the Dalai Lama of pushing to free Tibet from Chinese rule, which he denies. He has been living in the northern Indian town of Dharmsala since he fled Tibet in 1959, when Chinese troops marched in. China maintains that Tibet has been part of its territory for centuries, but many Tibetans say the region was functionally independent for much of its history.

Wide of meeting STORYLINE: The United Sates and Britain closed their embassies in Yemen on Sunday, citing ongoing threats by the al-Qaida group that has been linked to the failed attempt to bomb a Detroit-bound U.S. airliner on Christmas Day. The confrontation with al-Qaida's offshoot in Yemen has gained new urgency since the 23-year-old Nigerian accused in the attack, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, told U.S. investigators he received training and instructions from the group's operatives in Yemen. U.S. President Barack Obama said on Saturday that the al-Qaida offshoot was behind the attempt. White House counterterrorism chief John Brennan said the American Embassy, which was attacked twice in 2008, was shut Sunday because of "indications al-Qaida is planning to carry out an attack against a target inside of San'a, possibly our embassy." A statement on the embassy's Web site announcing the closure did not say how long it would remain closed. In London, Britain's Foreign Office said its embassy was closed for security reasons. It said officials would decide later whether to reopen it on Monday. The closure comes as Washington is dramatically stepping up aid to Yemen to fight al-Qaida, which has built up strongholds in remote parts of the impoverished, mountainous nation where government control outside the capital is weak. Over the weekend, General David Petraeus, the U.S. general who oversees the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, announced that Washington this year will more than double the 67 (m) million US dollars in counterterrorism aid that it provided Yemen in 2009. On Saturday, Petraeus met with Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh in San'a to discuss coordination in the fight against al-Qaida. Britain announced Sunday that Washington and London will fund a counterterrorism police unit in Yemen. Britain will also host a high-level international conference on January 28 to come up with an international strategy to counter radicalisation in Yemen. The U.S. also provided intelligence and other help to back two Yemeni air and ground assaults on al-Qaida hide-outs last month, reported to have killed more than 60 people. Yemeni authorities said more than 30 suspected militants were among the dead. Al-Qaida fighters have dramatically increased their presence in Yemen over the past year, taking advantage of the San'a government's weak control over much of the country. Tribes hold sway over large areas, and many of them are discontented with the central government and have given refuge to al-Qaida fighters, both Yemenis and other Arabs coming from Saudi Arabia or war zones in Iraq and Afghanistan. Yemen, the ancestral homeland of Osama bin Laden, was the scene of the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole, and in the years after the September 11, 2001, attacks in the United States, the Yemeni government worked with Washington to crack down on al-Qaida figures on its soil. But the militant group has rallied, announcing in January 2009 the creation of Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, grouping fighters from Yemen and neighbouring Saudi Arabia. The Yemeni government, meanwhile, has been tied down battling two separate internal rebellions in the north and south. The various conflicts and the country's poverty and lack of resources have raised fears that instability could deepen. There have been a spate of assaults on the U.S. Embassy in Yemen. In an attack in September 2008, gunmen and two vehicles packed with explosives attacked the U.S. embassy, killing 19 people, including an 18-year-old American woman and six militants. None of those killed or wounded were U.S. diplomats or embassy employees. Al-Qaida in Yemen claimed responsibility. In March 2008, three mortars missed the U.S. Embassy and crashed into a high school for girls nearby, killing a security guard. In March 2003, two people were shot dead and dozens more were wounded as police clashed with demonstrators trying to storm the embassy. Last January, gunmen in a car exchanged fire with police at a checkpoint near the embassy, hours after the embassy received threats of a possible attack by al-Qaida. Nobody was injured. In April, embassy personnel were put on a one-week lockdown, barred from leaving their homes or the embassy after al-Qaida suicide bombings that targeted South Korean visitors. As recently as July, security was upgraded in San'a after intelligence reports warned of attacks planned against the U.S. Embassy.

So you put the Gitmo folks together, you put Awlaki (Yemen-based radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki) together, these people have moved an attack on the US homeland to the top of their priority list."

Two shot at podium 15. SOUNDBITE: (English) U.S. Senator Joseph Lieberman, Independent, Connecticut: "I think that one of the shocking facts about al-Qaida in Yemen is that some of its leaders are people that we have previously captured and we're holding at Guantanamo. We released them back to the Saudis for rehabilitation, they were sent back to Yemen. In some cases they were put back into prison and they broke out. It's fair to say that too much of the leadership of al-Qaida in Yemen was previously in a prisoner of war camp in the United States of America and this leads me to say, to appeal to the Obama administration to reconsider any decisions that have been made to send prisoners of war that we are holding at Guantanamo back to Yemen because the odds are that they will end up in the fight against us planning attacks on the United States of America. So I think it would be truly irresponsible for us, America, to send prisoners of war that we hold now at Guantanamo back to Yemen." 16. Wide as Lieberman walks away from podium STORYLINE: US intelligence agencies did not miss a "smoking gun" that could have prevented an alleged attempt to blow up a US airliner on Christmas Day, President Barack Obama's top counterterrorism adviser said on Sunday. Speaking on "This Week" talk show, White House aide John Brennan cited "lapses" and "errors" in the sharing of intelligence and clues about the Nigerian man accused in the foiled attempt. John Brennan said "there was no single piece of intelligence, a smoking gun if you will, that said that Mr. Abdulmutallab was going to carry out this attack against that aircraft." Brennan is leading a White House review of the incident. Obama has said there was a systemic failure to prevent the attack, which he said was instigated by an affiliate in Yemen of the al-Qaida militant network. Obama ordered a thorough look at the shortcomings that permitted the plot, which failed not because of U.S. actions but because the would-be attacker was unable to ignite an explosive device. Also on "This Week" lawmakers alleged that some released Guantanamo detainees have returned to Yemen where Abdulmutallab is believed to have received training from al-Qaida before carrying out his failed attack. "I think that one of the shocking facts about al-Qaida in Yemen is that some of its leaders are people that we have previously captured and we're holding at Guantanamo," U.S. Senator Joseph Lieberman said. "It's fair to say that too much of the leadership of al-Qaida in Yemen was previously in a prisoner of war camp in the United States of America," he added. Brennan said officials will continue reviewing the cases of Yemeni detainees at Guantanamo and decide whether they should be sent home. Obama has promised to close the detention facility. About half of the 90 Yemeni detainees in Guantanamo are scheduled to be sent back to Yemen at some point. The New York Times reported last Tuesday that the government had intelligence from Yemen before Christmas that leaders of a branch of al-Qaida there were talking about "a Nigerian" being prepared for an attack. The newspaper said the information did not include the name of the Nigerian. Intelligence officials would not confirm whether those conversations involved Yemen-based radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, but other US government officials said there were initial indications that he was involved. Al-Awlaki reportedly corresponded by e-mail with Major Nidal Malik Hasan, who is charged with killing 13 people at Fort Hood, Texas, on November 5.

First of all, in airports, people will see gradually being brought in the use of full body scanners. They will see checks for explosive traces, that will be done on hand luggage.

We will work with the American authorities, as General Petraeus is in Yemen at the moment, we'll work with them to improve the counter terrorism of the Yemeni authorities, working in what I think Michael Portillo rightly described as a failing state, and therefore we've got to be very careful who we're supporting and what we're giving them support to do." 4.

Yemen has been recognised, like Somalia, to be one of the areas where we've got to not only keep an eye on but we've got to do more. So it's strengthening counter-terrorism cooperation, it's working harder on the intelligence efforts, and of course it's this same thing that I'm talking about, which is I think going to become a feature of this decade: how we can prevent the perversion of a good religion, Islam, by a group of people who will stop at nothing in a murderous ideology that tries to create a caliphate, tries to create a sense that everybody is an enemy except those people who believe in a particular version of Islam." 6. Black STORYLINE Britain and the United States are assisting a counter-terror police unit in Yemen amid fears of an increasing threat of international terrorism emanating from the country, the British government said on Sunday. In an interview with the BBC's Andrew Marr, Prime Minister Gordon Brown said the UK had been working with the Americans to strengthen their counter-terrorism cooperation in Yemen because the country "has been recognised, like Somalia, to be one of the areas where we've got to not only keep an eye on." Brown's office said that he and US President Barack Obama agreed to "intensify joint US-UK work to tackle the emerging terrorist threat from both Yemen and Somalia" in the wake of the failed Detroit terror plot. "This is a new threat, a new type of threat, and it's from a new source, which is obviously Yemen, but there are many other potential sources, like Somalia, as well as Afghanistan and Pakistan," Brown told the BBC in the interview. He added that tighter security measures at airports would be put in place such as the use of full body scanners, and checks for explosive traces on hand luggage. Both transit and transfer passengers will be checked, the British Prime Minister said. The US embassy in Yemen meanwhile closed on Sunday, citing ongoing threats by the al-Qaida branch that has been linked to the failed Christmas Day bombing attempt of a US airliner headed to Detroit. The embassy would not say if there was a specific threat. The confrontation with the group's branch in Yemen, at the tip of the Arabian Peninsula, has gained new urgency since the 23-year-old Nigerian accused in the attack, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, told US investigators he received training and instructions from al-Qaida operatives in Yemen. Obama said on Saturday that al-Qaida's branch in Yemen was behind the attempt. Downing Street said that Britain is already helping to train Yemeni counter-terrorism officials, but a UK government spokeswoman said this is the first time the counter-terrorism police units have been confirmed. In Washington, a senior administration official said American and British forces already provide the Yemeni police counter-terrorism assistance, and that he's unaware of any new joint effort that is ready to be announced. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity in order to discuss sensitive matters. Asked to clarify, the UK government spokeswoman said the initiatives in Yemen are part of ongoing work between the UK and the US and that the cost of the counter-terrorism police unit will be met by existing funding commitments to Yemen. The spokeswoman said Britain is forecast to give more than 100 million (m) pounds (161 million (m) US dollars) to Yemen in 2011. The spokeswoman, speaking on condition on anonymity in line with UK government policy, was unable to say how long Britain had been working on initiatives in Yemen. Brown called last week for a high-level international meeting later this month to devise ways to counter radicalisation in Yemen. Downing Street said the government of Yemen had been consulted over the decision to boost the country's coast guard and police operations. The White House said Washington stands ready to work with allies to fight extremism. The official welcomed Brown's move earlier to lead an international conference on January 28 to devise ways to counter radicalisation in the country, the poorest in the Arab world.

Street blocked by Jordan's police 11. Pan right of protest STORYLINE: Some 100 people including members of professional unions, leftists and Muslim activists, held a sit-in in front of the Egyptian embassy on Sunday to protest against the Gaza blockade and Egypt's decision to build an underground iron wall along its border with the Palestinian territory. Protesters shouted slogans against Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, accusing him of partnering with Israel against the Palestinian people. One protester, Abeer Al Jammal described Mubarak's decision to build the wall as "worse than Israeli terrorism." Police arrested one protester and blocked all the streets to the embassy. Gaza has been frozen in place in the year since Israel battered the territory with bombs and bullets to subdue Hamas, with entire neighbourhoods of wrecked buildings and traumatised residents unable to rebuild their lives. Egypt has been digging trenches and installing metal sheets underground along its border with Gaza in an apparent attempt to curb smuggling into the Palestinian territory through tunnels. The project appears to be one of a series of measures Egypt has taken, some of them in cooperation with the United States, to crack down on smuggling since the end of Israel's war on Hamas-ruled Gaza last winter. Israel says the tunnels are a key route for funnelling weapons and explosives to the Palestinian militant group Hamas and were a main target of its offensive. The tunnels are also used for smuggling food, medicine, electronics and construction material not otherwise available due to a blockade imposed on Gaza by Egypt and Israel after the Islamic militant group Hamas seized power over the tiny coastal territory in 2007. Egypt has been sharply criticised by Arab and Muslim groups for cooperating with Israel in blockading the 1.4 (m) million residents of the impoverished Gaza Strip for more than two years. Gazans infuriated and frustrated by the blockade blasted holes in a concrete and metal border wall in 2008 and tens of thousands of Palestinians streamed across the border into Egypt unchecked for about a week.

Pan right from picture of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to exit STORYLINE Palestinian security forces in the West Bank have stopped torturing Hamas prisoners, ending two years of systematic abuse, Hamas inmates told The Associated Press in jailhouse interviews. The change in practice, said to have taken effect in October, was confirmed by a West Bank Hamas leader, human rights activists and the Palestinian prime minister. It defuses a potential problem for Washington since the U.S. has been closely involved in training Palestinian troops under the control of Western-backed President Mahmoud Abbas, a rival of the Hamas militants. Hamas legislators and human rights researchers said they still get sporadic reports of prisoners being slapped or forced to stand for several hours during interrogation. And security forces continue to keep a close watch on Hamas activities, often arresting activists and holding them for lengthy periods without charge. However, they said the worst abuses - prisoners beaten with clubs and cables, suspended from the ceiling while tied up in painful positions and forced to stand for days - have ended. Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad confirmed a "dramatic change for the better" in West Bank prisons and said 43 officers have been jailed, fired or demoted for abusing prisoners. In an interview, he denied torture was ever official policy, but acknowledged past "excesses" that he said stemmed from a flawed culture of revenge. President Abbas' security forces, dominated by supporters of his Fatah movement, have been clamping down on Hamas in the West Bank since June 2007, when the Islamic militants wrested control of the Gaza Strip from the Palestinian leader. Since then, some 4,000 Hamas followers were arrested in the West Bank, and 500 are currently in detention, according to Hamas. Just two weeks ago, dozens of Hamas supporters were detained during the group's anniversary celebrations. In Gaza, Hamas has rounded up hundreds of Fatah supporters, who also have complained of severe mistreatment. Hamas and Fatah have failed to reconcile, despite many rounds of Egyptian-brokered mediation. However, Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal said in a visit to Saudi Arabia on Sunday that significant progress has been made in reconciliation talks. In the West Bank, persistent reports of abuse emerged over the past two years from prisons and interrogation centers. Since 2007, eight detainees have died in West Bank lockups and 15 in Gaza, human rights researchers say, though circumstances in some cases remain murky. The abuse was driven both by a desire to take revenge for the Gaza takeover and by fear that Hamas would seize control of the West Bank, said Salah Mousa, a human rights activist and former member of the Palestinian security forces. The worst accounts of abuse came from those held at Jneid Prison, a barbed wire-topped jumble of low buildings in Nablus, a former Hamas stronghold. Last week, an AP team was granted access to the prison, including the wing holding 40 Hamas prisoners. Officials unlocked the metal cell doors on both sides of a hallway and bearded inmates in track suits stepped out. With wardens out of earshot, inmates described past abuse and said it has largely stopped. An inmate at Jneid, 38-year-old shopkeeper Ayman Hamad, leaned forward to show a deep scar on the bald crown of his head, where he said he was clubbed by a security officer a year ago. "Now things are much better. Beating has stopped, except for some violations here and there," such as slapping, Hamad said. Other inmates said interrogation still involves being forced to stand, sometimes for several hours. In the Military Intelligence section of the prison, three windowless isolation cells, each the size of a parking space, are still used at times to hold and pressure those under interrogation, prisoners said. Wardens insisted the cells are only used to punish those breaking prison rules. The AP was not granted access to the interrogation area. However, Hamas officials who debrief released Hamas prisoners said security agents have stopped abusing prisoners. "Torture has stopped, following strong articles in the foreign media and threats by human rights organisations of suing Palestinian Authority officials," said Mahmoud Ramahi, a Hamas leader in the West Bank and a leading critic of the security forces in the past. Two leading Palestinian rights groups, Al Haq and the Independent Palestinian Commission for Human Rights, both confirmed the abuse has stopped. Al Haq said lesser violations persist, such as denying prisoners blankets for days at a time, but the phenomenon is not widespread. Human rights activists say many of the government's measures remain problematic, such as holding Hamas supporters for long periods without charge and firing civil servants believed to be sympathetic to the group. But in Jneid Prison, life is getting a little better. The cells are still grimy and crowded, with prisoners sleeping in metal bunk beds. But last month, each cell got a TV, and lawyers and relatives are now allowed to visit once a week, compared with restricted access in the past. For some of the Muslim prayers, the inmates step out of their cells and kneel on mats on the floor in the hallway. In the past, they were unable to worship as a large group and had to pray in their cells. One of the second-floor tracts is being renovated, with new tiles and wall paint, and hot water boilers have been installed. The human rights groups say their public pressure campaigns helped to persuade the government to change its ways. U.S. President Barack Obama's no-torture position also may have been a factor, though Palestinian officials deny that. U.S. officials wouldn't comment, noting that they do not train the forces accused of past torture.

People in a street of Kabul 15. Wide shot of road in central Kabul with traffic STORYLINE: A spokesman for the United Nations in Afghanistan said on Sunday that he was hoping the Afghan president and the parliament would work closely to "iron out" their differences in order for the country to "have a functioning cabinet as soon as possible." Aleem Siddique was speaking after Afghanistan's parliament dealt a stinging rebuke to president Hamid Karzai on Saturday by rejecting 70 percent of his nominees for a new cabinet, including a regionally powerful warlord and the country's only female minister. In ten hours of voting Saturday, parliament rejected nominees viewed as Karzai's political cronies, those believed to be under the influence of warlords and others deemed unqualified. The vote was a setback to the president, although lawmakers did approve his retention of incumbents in the key portfolios of defence, interior and finance. Karzai will submit new nominations for the empty ministerial posts, Afghan presidential spokesman Waheed Omar said Sunday, but it was not clear when. Siddique said it was urgent to "have these key cabinet positions approved as soon as possible, so we can get on and push ahead with meeting some of the crucial challenges that both the Afghan people and the international community want us to meet over the coming months and years." Abdullah Abdullah, former presidential candidate and former Foreign Minister, said on Sunday he believed that the decision by lawmakers to reject 70 percent of the president's Cabinet nominees showed "a bad choice by the president." "The picture doesn't show that they have been elected or confirmed because of their merits, there were a lot of other issues of dealing and wailing, but as a whole I think it was a vote of rejection for Mr Karzai's choice," Abdullah said. Sayed Naeem, a Kabul resident said he was "saddened" by the rejection of some of the nominees because not all of them deserved to be rejected. The laborious voting that took much of Saturday ended with the rejection of 17 of 24 nominees. The nominations, announced in mid-December, aimed to keep 12 current ministers in their posts for a second term. The new Cabinet is a bellwether for the U.S. and other nations hoping a stronger government will keep disenchanted Afghans from siding with the Taliban after Karzai won a second five-year term last year in a disputed election rife with ballot-box stuffing. The lawmakers approved a handful of incumbent ministers favoured by the West and instrumental to the war effort. Of the 12 incumbent ministers Karzai sought to retain, the parliament approved only five: Defense Minister Gen. Abdul Rahim Wardak; Interior Minister Hanif Atmar; Finance Minister Omar Zakhilwal; Agriculture Minister Muhammad Asif Rahimi; and Education Minister Ghulam Farooq Wardak. Karzai had wanted to keep Water and Power Minister Ismail Khan, a warlord in Herat province during the civil war of the 1990s who retains considerable local power. Critics said keeping Khan proved Karzai remained beholden to regional power brokers at the expense of the country's national interests. Khan's nomination was narrowly defeated.

IRIB newsreader STORYLINE: Iran's interior minister warned on Sunday that a harder line will be taken against anti-government protesters. "We have ordered the police that from now on, they should have no clemency at all and if some people stage a gathering or accompany rioters, the police must strongly crush them," Mostafa Mohammad Najjar said in Tehran. Last Sunday at least eight people died during anti-government protests including opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi's nephew. Sadeq Larijani, the judiciary chief said that the rioters were protesting against the founding principles of the regime itself. "They don't protest against the issue of the election but they are against the foundation of the system and the judiciary will strongly and rapidly look into this case," said Larijani. On Friday Mousavi pledged to remain defiant in the face of new threats - including calls by hard-liners for his execution - and said he would sacrifice his life in defence of the people's right to protest peacefully against the government. Mousavi's remarks come after the worst unrest since the immediate aftermath of the disputed June presidential election. The confrontation between clerical rulers and their opponents has returned to the streets in recent weeks, after a harsh crackdown immediately following the June 12 balloting all but crushed the opposition movement.

The governor of Bilecik, some 250 miles (400 kilometres) south of Istanbul said the accident was caused by an electrical fault that led to a signal failure. The train went through a signal where it should have halted and slammed into another train that was stopped on the line. One driver was killed. The injured included two rail personnel and at least five passengers, said Bilecik's governor, Musa Colak. The trains were travelling in opposite directions between Istanbul and the city of Eskisehir. Turkey's government has been working to improve the country's rail system, which is beset by signalling malfunctions, ill-equipped trains, deteriorating tracks and a lack of barriers at road crossings. In Turkey's worst train accident in recent years, a newly inaugurated high-speed train from Istanbul to Ankara derailed in 2004, killing 37 people and injuring 95 others.

"Before taking off the pilot decided to abort the take-off. Then the aircraft rolled off the runway and now stands behind the runway," Guido Miletic, a Dortmund Airport spokesman said. Despite the snowy conditions the runway was fully operational at the time of the aborted takeoff he added. The aircraft, with 165 passengers and six crew members on board, braked but came off the runway in wintry conditions. Another airline spokeswoman said the pilot of the Boeing 737-800 had decided to abort the takeoff because of a "technical irregularity" that is still being examined. The spokeswoman said the plane was undamaged and passengers were able to leave the aircraft normally using steps. She added that the passengers and their luggage were being taken to nearby Paderborn airport, from where another aircraft was to fly them to Las Palmas. Dortmund airport said the accident happened at 7:05 a.m. (0605GMT). The airport was closed to allow for the aircraft's recovery, and other flights cancelled or diverted, according to its Web site.

So I think the economic challenges or problems will persist in the face of a pretty awesome, I would say, man made structure. But those two ironies will coexist for a while." 5.

Various aerials of the man-made Palm Islands, and The World Islands, construction of which is on hold due to the financial meltdown STORY: Dubai is set to open the world's tallest building amid tight security on Monday, celebrating the tower as a bold feat on the world stage, despite the city state's shaky financial footing. But the final height of the Burj Dubai, Arabic for Dubai Tower, remained a closely guarded secret on the eve of its opening. At more than 2,625 feet (800 metres), it long ago vanquished its nearest rival, the Taipei 101 in Taiwan. The Burj's record-seeking developers didn't stop there. The building boasts the most stories and highest occupied floor of any building in the world, and ranks as the world's tallest structure, beating out a television mast in North Dakota. Its observation deck, on floor 124, also sets a record. Bill Baker, the building's structural engineer, who is in Dubai for the inauguration said the engineers weren't sure how high they could go, and that the process was a learning experience. Baker, of Chicago-based architecture and engineering firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, said early designs for the Burj had it edging out the world's previous record-holder, the Taipei 101, by about 33 feet (10 metres). The Taiwan tower rises 1,667 feet (508 metres). The Burj's developer, Emaar Properties, kept pushing the design higher even after construction began, eventually putting it about 984 feet (300 metres) taller than its nearest competitor, Baker said. He is keeping quiet about the exact height. Dubai's ruler will open the tapering metal-and-glass spire with a fireworks display on Monday evening. "We have to give them credit for an engineering feet and it's also very symbolic, it's the tallest building in the world. It speaks to the economic momentum Dubai has had, for several years now," said Saud Masud, the Head of Research and Senior Analyst, Real Estate at UBS investment Bank in Dubai. But the Burj's opening comes at a tough time for Dubai's economy. Property prices in newer parts of the sheikdom have collapsed by nearly half over the past year. The city-state turned to its richer neighbour Abu Dhabi for a series of bailouts totalling 25 billion (b) US dollars in 2009 to help cover debts amassed by a network of state-linked companies. Burj developer Emaar is itself partly owned by the government, but is not among the companies known to have received emergency cash. Emaar has said the entire Downtown Burj Dubai development, which includes the tower, will cost 20 billion (b) US dollars to build. Sales of properties around the Burj are meant to help pay for the tower itself, which analysts say is unlikely to be profitable on its own. Analyst Saud Masud said the Burj also "puts Dubai on the map in a ironic way because real estate housing downturn, is what is responsible for the current economic down cycle." At their peak, some apartments in the Burj were selling for more than 1,900 US dollars per square foot, though they now can go for less than half that, said Heather Wipperman Amiji, chief executive of Dubai real estate consultancy Investment Boutique. Besides luxury apartments and offices, the Burj will be home to a hotel designed by Giorgio Armani.

Tilt down from gold dome and minarets, past mosque building to large crowd of chanting pilgrims STORYLINE: Hundreds of thousands of Shiite pilgrims marched to Karbala's holy shrine on Tuesday to mark the death of one of their most revered saints - chanting, swaying, and their cutting their bodies in an emotional ritual that had been banned for decades under Saddam Hussein. Up to two million Shi'ite Muslims have joined the pilgrimage to shrines in the holy cities of Karbala and Najaf. During the morning, the streets of Karbala were heaving with thousands of devout pilgrims heading towards the Imam Hussein's shrine, and that of his brother, the Abbas shrine. The city of Karbala is the site of the 7th-century martyrdom of Hussein, a grandson of the Prophet Muhammad and one of the sect's most revered saints. Amid the throng of pious Shi'ites were groups of bloody boys and men carrying out flagellation ceremonies, cutting themselves in the head with swords as part of the ritual to commemorate the death of the third Shi'ite Imam Hussein. Imam Hussein's body is interred in Karbala. Other pilgrims formed into groups, consisting of people from the same community or village, beating their chests and chanting as they passed the shrines. Many of the Shi'ites, who claim they suffered persecution under the largely Sunni controlled (though secular) regime of Saddam Hussein, are making the long journey from Baghdad, and other parts of Iraq, on foot - a practice formerly forbidden. During the regime, Shi'ite Muslims were only allowed to gather in small groups and the rituals that include flagellation, self-beating and crying were banned. The march comes as Shi'ites are flexing newfound strength since the fall of Saddam, whose mostly Sunni Muslim government severely repressed Iraq's Shi'ite majority. Shi'ites have been setting up local administrations to re-establish order, and religious leaders have emerged as key sources of political power, especially in southern Iraq. At the Karbala gathering, Abed Mehdi Karadalai, Imam of Hussein shrine said the pilgrims are against U.S. and British occupation of Iraq. In an apparent attempt to avoid any friction with the pilgrims, no American troops appeared in the city. Over 60 per cent of Iraq's population are Shi'ite Muslims. The annual pilgrimage culminates on Thursday. ****************************************************************************************************************** UK Galloway 11:11:08 British MP denies taking money from Iraqi govt 11:11:28 file vo of Saddam meeting with 11:11:49 audio from : "the oil for food deal, that's why the countries under complete, it's run from the UN nations building in NY, receives it from UN bank account, so it would be easy to determine if any money came to me...funds from 3 sources, UAE and Saudi Arabia..." 11:12:55 newspaper 11:13:01 SOT (audio only): "it's completely false, I have begun libel against the Daily Telegram" 11:13:27 reporter SOT: "I found it in a room, it's authentic..." 11:13:47 reporter gives a tour of the room 11:13:58 reporter looking through documents 11:14:45 File VO of 11:14:52 man being carried away by police STORY: ++UK Galloway - NEW A British MP denies allegations of taking money from Iraqi government LENGTH: 3:40 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: See Script TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: STV/IRAQI TV/SKY STORY NUMBER: 372268 DATELINE: Various, 22 April 2003/ File ANY CLIENT BROADCASTING INTO THE UNITED KINGDOM IS ADVISED TO CONSULT THEIR LAWYERS WITH REGARD TO ENGLISH AND SCOTTISH LIBEL LAWS BEFORE RUNNING THIS STORY.

SOUNDBITE (English) George Galloway, British Member of Parliament (Labour) "Well, there are two things wrong with that allegation. The first is that there is no such thing as an oil programme. The oil-for-food deal specifically excludes any Iraqi citizen from participating in any business, that is why the country is under complete embargo. Secondly, the oil-for-food programme is run not from Baghdad but from the United Nations building in New York and anyone receiving funds from the oil-for-food deal receives it from the United Nations' own bank account. So it would be very simple indeed to establish whether a single brass farthing of the oil-for-food money ever came to me or our organisation. We've campaigned over many years, bitterly, against British and American policy in the region and we received funds from only three significant sources: the governments of the United Arab Emirates and the government of Saudi Arabia - these are public knowledge, as is the third - Fawaz Zureikat, the chairman of Mariam Appeal who is a prominent Middle Eastern businessman, an exceedingly rich man, who does business throughout the world including Iraq." 4.

Galloway walking past reporters Scottish TV - No BBC FILE 16. Galloway signalling a peace sign as he is carried away from an anti-war protest by police STORYLINE: A British politician who vehemently opposed the U.S.-led war on Iraq denied a newspaper's claim on Tuesday that he received money from Saddam Hussein's regime through the oil-for-food programme. George Galloway, an outspoken member of the governing Labour Party, said The Daily Telegraph's report was part of a "smear campaign" against opponents of the war. He said the allegations were untrue and that he was to sue the newspaper for libel. The Daily Telegraph said its correspondent in Baghdad, David Blair, had seen a memo from the Iraqi intelligence service saying Galloway had asked an Iraqi agent for a larger cut of Iraq's exports under the oil-for-food program. The paper claims that the January 2000 memo said Galloway received between ten and 15 (US) cents from each of three (M) million barrels of Iraqi oil a year. Under United Nations sanctions imposed on Iraq after its 1990 invasion of Kuwait, Iraq was allowed to sell some oil to buy humanitarian supplies. The newspaper reported that the memo said Galloway had asked for a bigger share of the oil income and for "exceptional" commercial contracts, and had entered into partnership with an Iraqi broker to sell oil on the international market. The Daily Telegraph said its reporter found the document and other files in Baghdad's looted Foreign Ministry. Galloway said the documents were forgeries or had been doctored and were part of a "smear campaign against those who stood against the illegal and bloody war on Iraq and against its occupation by foreign forces." Galloway has long opposed his government's policy on the Middle East and leads an anti-sanctions organisation, the Mariam Appeal, and has traveled to Baghdad several times to deliver aid. The Mariam Appeal was set up in 1998 to raise funds for medical treatment for an Iraqi girl suffering from leukemia. Galloway said the appeal was funded largely by the governments of the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia and by Jordanian businessman Fawaz Zureikat. ******************************************************************************************************************* 11:15:01 Ppines SARS: new measures introduced to prevent SARS 11:15:40 airport shots 11:15:46 handing out information to passengers at airport 11:16:41 meeting 11:16:47 checking tickets at airport gate 11:16:58 SOT: there are several hours a day the fever is up and gone...period of time when they don't have a fever...I personally..." 11:17:43 Little boy at airport with mask on STORY: ++Ppines SARS - NEW More measures introduced to prevent spread of SARS LENGTH: 2:46 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 372221 DATELINE: Manila - 22 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Very few people have got the morality, shall we say, the ethics to tell the truth when filling in questionnaires. And so I believe, and this is my own personal belief, that there should be some form of legislation to punish people who lie on filling in these questionnaires, because the disease is too important to allow one case to get through undetected." 10.

SOUNDBITE (English) Dr John Simon, Infectious Diseases Specialist: "The cause of fever in SASS is not like you have it 24 hours a day. There are several hours a day where the fever might be up and down. And it might be that as the person was going through the screening in Hong Kong or Singapore, that was a period of time when he did not have fever. And just after two hours, when they get here, they might have fever. I think you should screen, personally, the temperature when they arrive here at all ports of entry." 13. Ninoy Aquino International Airport General Manager Edgardo Manda (left of screen) seated beside a doctor listening to lecture 14. Various of arriving passengers passing quarantine desk STORYLINE: A British infectious diseases specialist has called for the introduction of laws to punish SASS victims who lie about their condition to Philippines airport officials. Dr John Simon also suggested that incoming passengers be temperature-screened at all ports of entry to the country. The Hong Kong-based doctor made the remarks during a lecture to employees at Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila. Dr Simon said few people would possess the "ethics" to tell the truth on airport questionnaires. And the fluctuating nature of the fever associated with SASS would make it possible for victims to pass through Hong Kong or Singapore screenings undetected. Ninoy Aquino International Airport General Manager Edgardo Manda said that he has already ordered three infrared fever sensor machines to monitor passenger body temperatures. The Philippines has two probable cases of SASS - a nursing attendant who worked in SASS-hit Toronto, Canada and her 72-year-old father. Both have died. About 250 people have been placed under quarantine because of contact with the nurse, and Philippine health officials have investigated nearly 100 others for possible SASS. But so far, no SASS cases have been confirmed. ********************************************************************************************************** 11:17:54 Thailand UK: arrested for possession of heroine 11:18:08 men in police custody 11:18:29 shot of their passports 11:18:36 shots of the heroine STORY: ++Thailand UK - NEW Two Brits arrested with 1.3kg heroin LENGTH: 1:48 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: No Thailand TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: ITV STORY NUMBER: 372273 DATELINE: Bangkok, 22 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Wide shot of bus in parking lot carrying postal workers STORYLINE: A mail distribution facility in Tacoma in Washington state, was evacuated early Tuesday after preliminary tests indicated a powder found in two envelopes might be a biotoxin. According to Jerry Hauer, acting assistant secretary for public health preparedness at the Department of Health and Human Services, the tests registered positive for plague and botulism. But he cautioned that the tests used hand-held devices that are notoriously unreliable, and that officials were waiting for results of more sophisticated testing that analyses the material's DNA. More accurate testing is being done by an Army National Guard unit from nearby Fort Lewis. The powder was found in two envelopes early this morning. The building was evacuated and four workers were decontaminated as a precaution. An initial field test had shown the powder might be a biotoxin. A postal inspector later said anthrax had been ruled out. Tacoma Fire Department Captain. Jolene Davis said the material was found about 12:45 a.m. on a table where mail is processed. Four people who were close to it were decontaminated as a precaution and taken to a hospital to be checked out, she said, but no one showed any signs of being ill. Local officials had not requested federal assistance, though federal officials were monitoring the situation. Ninety-four people were evacuated from the building. 11:33:30 end of bulletin ******************************************************************************************************************** 11:35:23 Dubai TV 11:45:33 Egypt TV ****************************************************************************************************************** 12:00:39 Middle East Bulletin 12:00:52 replay Baghdad Wrap: tanks, interim police chief, shooting, gravesite ****************************************************************************************************************** 12:05:07 replay UK Galloway

Amid the throng of pious Shi'ites were groups of bloody boys and men carrying out flagellation ceremonies, cutting themselves in the head with swords as part of the ritual to commemorate the death of the third Shi'ite Imam Hussein. Imam Hussein's body is interred in Karbala. Other pilgrims formed into groups, consisting of people from the same community or village, beating their chests and chanting as they passed the shrines. Many of the Shi'ites, who claim they suffered persecution under the largely Sunni controlled (though secular) regime of Saddam Hussein, are making the long journey from Baghdad, and other parts of Iraq, on foot - a practice formerly forbidden. During the regime, Shi'ite Muslims were only allowed to gather in small groups and the rituals that include flagellation, self-beating and crying were banned. The march comes as Shi'ites are flexing newfound strength since the fall of Saddam, whose mostly Sunni Muslim government severely repressed Iraq's Shi'ite majority. Shi'ites have been setting up local administrations to re-establish order, and religious leaders have emerged as key sources of political power, especially in southern Iraq. At the Karbala gathering, Abed Mehdi Karadalai, Imam of Hussein shrine said the pilgrims are against U.S. and British occupation of Iraq. In an apparent attempt to avoid any friction with the pilgrims, no American troops appeared in the city. Over 60 per cent of Iraq's population are Shi'ite Muslims. The annual pilgrimage culminates on Thursday. ****************************************************************************************************************** UK Galloway 11:11:08 British MP denies taking money from Iraqi govt 11:11:28 file vo of Saddam meeting with 11:11:49 audio from : "the oil for food deal, that's why the countries under complete, it's run from the UN nations building in NY, receives it from UN bank account, so it would be easy to determine if any money came to me...funds from 3 sources, UAE and Saudi Arabia..." 11:12:55 newspaper 11:13:01 SOT (audio only): "it's completely false, I have begun libel against the Daily Telegram" 11:13:27 reporter SOT: "I found it in a room, it's authentic..." 11:13:47 reporter gives a tour of the room 11:13:58 reporter looking through documents 11:14:45 File VO of 11:14:52 man being carried away by police STORY: ++UK Galloway - NEW A British MP denies allegations of taking money from Iraqi government LENGTH: 3:40 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: See Script TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: STV/IRAQI TV/SKY STORY NUMBER: 372268 DATELINE: Various, 22 April 2003/ File ANY CLIENT BROADCASTING INTO THE UNITED KINGDOM IS ADVISED TO CONSULT THEIR LAWYERS WITH REGARD TO ENGLISH AND SCOTTISH LIBEL LAWS BEFORE RUNNING THIS STORY.

SOUNDBITE (English) George Galloway, British Member of Parliament (Labour) "Well, there are two things wrong with that allegation. The first is that there is no such thing as an oil programme. The oil-for-food deal specifically excludes any Iraqi citizen from participating in any business, that is why the country is under complete embargo. Secondly, the oil-for-food programme is run not from Baghdad but from the United Nations building in New York and anyone receiving funds from the oil-for-food deal receives it from the United Nations' own bank account. So it would be very simple indeed to establish whether a single brass farthing of the oil-for-food money ever came to me or our organisation. We've campaigned over many years, bitterly, against British and American policy in the region and we received funds from only three significant sources: the governments of the United Arab Emirates and the government of Saudi Arabia - these are public knowledge, as is the third - Fawaz Zureikat, the chairman of Mariam Appeal who is a prominent Middle Eastern businessman, an exceedingly rich man, who does business throughout the world including Iraq." 4.

Galloway walking past reporters Scottish TV - No BBC FILE 16. Galloway signalling a peace sign as he is carried away from an anti-war protest by police STORYLINE: A British politician who vehemently opposed the U.S.-led war on Iraq denied a newspaper's claim on Tuesday that he received money from Saddam Hussein's regime through the oil-for-food programme. George Galloway, an outspoken member of the governing Labour Party, said The Daily Telegraph's report was part of a "smear campaign" against opponents of the war. He said the allegations were untrue and that he was to sue the newspaper for libel. The Daily Telegraph said its correspondent in Baghdad, David Blair, had seen a memo from the Iraqi intelligence service saying Galloway had asked an Iraqi agent for a larger cut of Iraq's exports under the oil-for-food program. The paper claims that the January 2000 memo said Galloway received between ten and 15 (US) cents from each of three (M) million barrels of Iraqi oil a year. Under United Nations sanctions imposed on Iraq after its 1990 invasion of Kuwait, Iraq was allowed to sell some oil to buy humanitarian supplies. The newspaper reported that the memo said Galloway had asked for a bigger share of the oil income and for "exceptional" commercial contracts, and had entered into partnership with an Iraqi broker to sell oil on the international market. The Daily Telegraph said its reporter found the document and other files in Baghdad's looted Foreign Ministry. Galloway said the documents were forgeries or had been doctored and were part of a "smear campaign against those who stood against the illegal and bloody war on Iraq and against its occupation by foreign forces." Galloway has long opposed his government's policy on the Middle East and leads an anti-sanctions organisation, the Mariam Appeal, and has traveled to Baghdad several times to deliver aid. The Mariam Appeal was set up in 1998 to raise funds for medical treatment for an Iraqi girl suffering from leukemia. Galloway said the appeal was funded largely by the governments of the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia and by Jordanian businessman Fawaz Zureikat. ******************************************************************************************************************* 11:15:01 Ppines SARS: new measures introduced to prevent SARS 11:15:40 airport shots 11:15:46 handing out information to passengers at airport 11:16:41 meeting 11:16:47 checking tickets at airport gate 11:16:58 SOT: there are several hours a day the fever is up and gone...period of time when they don't have a fever...I personally..." 11:17:43 Little boy at airport with mask on STORY: ++Ppines SARS - NEW More measures introduced to prevent spread of SARS LENGTH: 2:46 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 372221 DATELINE: Manila - 22 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Very few people have got the morality, shall we say, the ethics to tell the truth when filling in questionnaires. And so I believe, and this is my own personal belief, that there should be some form of legislation to punish people who lie on filling in these questionnaires, because the disease is too important to allow one case to get through undetected." 10.

SOUNDBITE (English) Dr John Simon, Infectious Diseases Specialist: "The cause of fever in SASS is not like you have it 24 hours a day. There are several hours a day where the fever might be up and down. And it might be that as the person was going through the screening in Hong Kong or Singapore, that was a period of time when he did not have fever. And just after two hours, when they get here, they might have fever. I think you should screen, personally, the temperature when they arrive here at all ports of entry." 13. Ninoy Aquino International Airport General Manager Edgardo Manda (left of screen) seated beside a doctor listening to lecture 14. Various of arriving passengers passing quarantine desk STORYLINE: A British infectious diseases specialist has called for the introduction of laws to punish SASS victims who lie about their condition to Philippines airport officials. Dr John Simon also suggested that incoming passengers be temperature-screened at all ports of entry to the country. The Hong Kong-based doctor made the remarks during a lecture to employees at Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila. Dr Simon said few people would possess the "ethics" to tell the truth on airport questionnaires. And the fluctuating nature of the fever associated with SASS would make it possible for victims to pass through Hong Kong or Singapore screenings undetected. Ninoy Aquino International Airport General Manager Edgardo Manda said that he has already ordered three infrared fever sensor machines to monitor passenger body temperatures. The Philippines has two probable cases of SASS - a nursing attendant who worked in SASS-hit Toronto, Canada and her 72-year-old father. Both have died. About 250 people have been placed under quarantine because of contact with the nurse, and Philippine health officials have investigated nearly 100 others for possible SASS. But so far, no SASS cases have been confirmed. ********************************************************************************************************** 11:17:54 Thailand UK: arrested for possession of heroine 11:18:08 men in police custody 11:18:29 shot of their passports 11:18:36 shots of the heroine STORY: ++Thailand UK - NEW Two Brits arrested with 1.3kg heroin LENGTH: 1:48 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: No Thailand TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: ITV STORY NUMBER: 372273 DATELINE: Bangkok, 22 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Wide shot of bus in parking lot carrying postal workers STORYLINE: A mail distribution facility in Tacoma in Washington state, was evacuated early Tuesday after preliminary tests indicated a powder found in two envelopes might be a biotoxin. According to Jerry Hauer, acting assistant secretary for public health preparedness at the Department of Health and Human Services, the tests registered positive for plague and botulism. But he cautioned that the tests used hand-held devices that are notoriously unreliable, and that officials were waiting for results of more sophisticated testing that analyses the material's DNA. More accurate testing is being done by an Army National Guard unit from nearby Fort Lewis. The powder was found in two envelopes early this morning. The building was evacuated and four workers were decontaminated as a precaution. An initial field test had shown the powder might be a biotoxin. A postal inspector later said anthrax had been ruled out. Tacoma Fire Department Captain. Jolene Davis said the material was found about 12:45 a.m. on a table where mail is processed. Four people who were close to it were decontaminated as a precaution and taken to a hospital to be checked out, she said, but no one showed any signs of being ill. Local officials had not requested federal assistance, though federal officials were monitoring the situation. Ninety-four people were evacuated from the building. 11:33:30 end of bulletin ******************************************************************************************************************** 11:35:23 Dubai TV 11:45:33 Egypt TV ****************************************************************************************************************** 12:00:39 Middle East Bulletin 12:00:52 replay Baghdad Wrap: tanks, interim police chief, shooting, gravesite ****************************************************************************************************************** 12:05:07 replay UK Galloway *******************************************************************

The march comes as Shi'ites are flexing newfound strength since the fall of Saddam, whose mostly Sunni Muslim government severely repressed Iraq's Shi'ite majority. Shi'ites have been setting up local administrations to re-establish order, and religious leaders have emerged as key sources of political power, especially in southern Iraq. At the Karbala gathering, Abed Mehdi Karadalai, Imam of Hussein shrine said the pilgrims are against U.S. and British occupation of Iraq. In an apparent attempt to avoid any friction with the pilgrims, no American troops appeared in the city. Over 60 per cent of Iraq's population are Shi'ite Muslims. The annual pilgrimage culminates on Thursday. ****************************************************************************************************************** UK Galloway 11:11:08 British MP denies taking money from Iraqi govt 11:11:28 file vo of Saddam meeting with 11:11:49 audio from : "the oil for food deal, that's why the countries under complete, it's run from the UN nations building in NY, receives it from UN bank account, so it would be easy to determine if any money came to me...funds from 3 sources, UAE and Saudi Arabia..." 11:12:55 newspaper 11:13:01 SOT (audio only): "it's completely false, I have begun libel against the Daily Telegram" 11:13:27 reporter SOT: "I found it in a room, it's authentic..." 11:13:47 reporter gives a tour of the room 11:13:58 reporter looking through documents 11:14:45 File VO of 11:14:52 man being carried away by police STORY: ++UK Galloway - NEW A British MP denies allegations of taking money from Iraqi government LENGTH: 3:40 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: See Script TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: STV/IRAQI TV/SKY STORY NUMBER: 372268 DATELINE: Various, 22 April 2003/ File ANY CLIENT BROADCASTING INTO THE UNITED KINGDOM IS ADVISED TO CONSULT THEIR LAWYERS WITH REGARD TO ENGLISH AND SCOTTISH LIBEL LAWS BEFORE RUNNING THIS STORY.

SOUNDBITE (English) George Galloway, British Member of Parliament (Labour) "Well, there are two things wrong with that allegation. The first is that there is no such thing as an oil programme. The oil-for-food deal specifically excludes any Iraqi citizen from participating in any business, that is why the country is under complete embargo. Secondly, the oil-for-food programme is run not from Baghdad but from the United Nations building in New York and anyone receiving funds from the oil-for-food deal receives it from the United Nations' own bank account. So it would be very simple indeed to establish whether a single brass farthing of the oil-for-food money ever came to me or our organisation. We've campaigned over many years, bitterly, against British and American policy in the region and we received funds from only three significant sources: the governments of the United Arab Emirates and the government of Saudi Arabia - these are public knowledge, as is the third - Fawaz Zureikat, the chairman of Mariam Appeal who is a prominent Middle Eastern businessman, an exceedingly rich man, who does business throughout the world including Iraq." 4.

Galloway walking past reporters Scottish TV - No BBC FILE 16. Galloway signalling a peace sign as he is carried away from an anti-war protest by police STORYLINE: A British politician who vehemently opposed the U.S.-led war on Iraq denied a newspaper's claim on Tuesday that he received money from Saddam Hussein's regime through the oil-for-food programme. George Galloway, an outspoken member of the governing Labour Party, said The Daily Telegraph's report was part of a "smear campaign" against opponents of the war. He said the allegations were untrue and that he was to sue the newspaper for libel. The Daily Telegraph said its correspondent in Baghdad, David Blair, had seen a memo from the Iraqi intelligence service saying Galloway had asked an Iraqi agent for a larger cut of Iraq's exports under the oil-for-food program. The paper claims that the January 2000 memo said Galloway received between ten and 15 (US) cents from each of three (M) million barrels of Iraqi oil a year. Under United Nations sanctions imposed on Iraq after its 1990 invasion of Kuwait, Iraq was allowed to sell some oil to buy humanitarian supplies. The newspaper reported that the memo said Galloway had asked for a bigger share of the oil income and for "exceptional" commercial contracts, and had entered into partnership with an Iraqi broker to sell oil on the international market. The Daily Telegraph said its reporter found the document and other files in Baghdad's looted Foreign Ministry. Galloway said the documents were forgeries or had been doctored and were part of a "smear campaign against those who stood against the illegal and bloody war on Iraq and against its occupation by foreign forces." Galloway has long opposed his government's policy on the Middle East and leads an anti-sanctions organisation, the Mariam Appeal, and has traveled to Baghdad several times to deliver aid. The Mariam Appeal was set up in 1998 to raise funds for medical treatment for an Iraqi girl suffering from leukemia. Galloway said the appeal was funded largely by the governments of the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia and by Jordanian businessman Fawaz Zureikat. ******************************************************************************************************************* 11:15:01 Ppines SARS: new measures introduced to prevent SARS 11:15:40 airport shots 11:15:46 handing out information to passengers at airport 11:16:41 meeting 11:16:47 checking tickets at airport gate 11:16:58 SOT: there are several hours a day the fever is up and gone...period of time when they don't have a fever...I personally..." 11:17:43 Little boy at airport with mask on STORY: ++Ppines SARS - NEW More measures introduced to prevent spread of SARS LENGTH: 2:46 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 372221 DATELINE: Manila - 22 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Very few people have got the morality, shall we say, the ethics to tell the truth when filling in questionnaires. And so I believe, and this is my own personal belief, that there should be some form of legislation to punish people who lie on filling in these questionnaires, because the disease is too important to allow one case to get through undetected." 10.

SOUNDBITE (English) Dr John Simon, Infectious Diseases Specialist: "The cause of fever in SASS is not like you have it 24 hours a day. There are several hours a day where the fever might be up and down. And it might be that as the person was going through the screening in Hong Kong or Singapore, that was a period of time when he did not have fever. And just after two hours, when they get here, they might have fever. I think you should screen, personally, the temperature when they arrive here at all ports of entry." 13. Ninoy Aquino International Airport General Manager Edgardo Manda (left of screen) seated beside a doctor listening to lecture 14. Various of arriving passengers passing quarantine desk STORYLINE: A British infectious diseases specialist has called for the introduction of laws to punish SASS victims who lie about their condition to Philippines airport officials. Dr John Simon also suggested that incoming passengers be temperature-screened at all ports of entry to the country. The Hong Kong-based doctor made the remarks during a lecture to employees at Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila. Dr Simon said few people would possess the "ethics" to tell the truth on airport questionnaires. And the fluctuating nature of the fever associated with SASS would make it possible for victims to pass through Hong Kong or Singapore screenings undetected. Ninoy Aquino International Airport General Manager Edgardo Manda said that he has already ordered three infrared fever sensor machines to monitor passenger body temperatures. The Philippines has two probable cases of SASS - a nursing attendant who worked in SASS-hit Toronto, Canada and her 72-year-old father. Both have died. About 250 people have been placed under quarantine because of contact with the nurse, and Philippine health officials have investigated nearly 100 others for possible SASS. But so far, no SASS cases have been confirmed. ********************************************************************************************************** 11:17:54 Thailand UK: arrested for possession of heroine 11:18:08 men in police custody 11:18:29 shot of their passports 11:18:36 shots of the heroine STORY: ++Thailand UK - NEW Two Brits arrested with 1.3kg heroin LENGTH: 1:48 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: No Thailand TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: ITV STORY NUMBER: 372273 DATELINE: Bangkok, 22 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Up to two million Shi'ite Muslims have joined the pilgrimage to shrines in the holy cities of Karbala and Najaf. During the morning, the streets of Karbala were heaving with thousands of devout pilgrims heading towards the Imam Hussein's shrine, and that of his brother, the Abbas shrine. The city of Karbala is the site of the 7th-century martyrdom of Hussein, a grandson of the Prophet Muhammad and one of the sect's most revered saints. Amid the throng of pious Shi'ites were groups of bloody boys and men carrying out flagellation ceremonies, cutting themselves in the head with swords as part of the ritual to commemorate the death of the third Shi'ite Imam Hussein. Imam Hussein's body is interred in Karbala. Other pilgrims formed into groups, consisting of people from the same community or village, beating their chests and chanting as they passed the shrines. Many of the Shi'ites, who claim they suffered persecution under the largely Sunni controlled (though secular) regime of Saddam Hussein, are making the long journey from Baghdad, and other parts of Iraq, on foot - a practice formerly forbidden.

Wide shot of bus in parking lot carrying postal workers STORYLINE: A mail distribution facility in Tacoma in Washington state, was evacuated early Tuesday after preliminary tests indicated a powder found in two envelopes might be a biotoxin. According to Jerry Hauer, acting assistant secretary for public health preparedness at the Department of Health and Human Services, the tests registered positive for plague and botulism. But he cautioned that the tests used hand-held devices that are notoriously unreliable, and that officials were waiting for results of more sophisticated testing that analyses the material's DNA. More accurate testing is being done by an Army National Guard unit from nearby Fort Lewis. The powder was found in two envelopes early this morning. The building was evacuated and four workers were decontaminated as a precaution. An initial field test had shown the powder might be a biotoxin. A postal inspector later said anthrax had been ruled out. Tacoma Fire Department Captain. Jolene Davis said the material was found about 12:45 a.m. on a table where mail is processed. Four people who were close to it were decontaminated as a precaution and taken to a hospital to be checked out, she said, but no one showed any signs of being ill. Local officials had not requested federal assistance, though federal officials were monitoring the situation. Ninety-four people were evacuated from the building. 11:33:30 end of bulletin ******************************************************************************************************************** 11:35:23 Dubai TV 11:45:33 Egypt TV ****************************************************************************************************************** 12:00:39 Middle East Bulletin 12:00:52 replay Baghdad Wrap: tanks, interim police chief, shooting, gravesite ****************************************************************************************************************** 12:05:07 replay UK Galloway *******************************************************************

SOUNDBITE (English) George Galloway, British Member of Parliament (Labour) "Well, there are two things wrong with that allegation. The first is that there is no such thing as an oil programme. The oil-for-food deal specifically excludes any Iraqi citizen from participating in any business, that is why the country is under complete embargo. Secondly, the oil-for-food programme is run not from Baghdad but from the United Nations building in New York and anyone receiving funds from the oil-for-food deal receives it from the United Nations' own bank account. So it would be very simple indeed to establish whether a single brass farthing of the oil-for-food money ever came to me or our organisation. We've campaigned over many years, bitterly, against British and American policy in the region and we received funds from only three significant sources: the governments of the United Arab Emirates and the government of Saudi Arabia - these are public knowledge, as is the third - Fawaz Zureikat, the chairman of Mariam Appeal who is a prominent Middle Eastern businessman, an exceedingly rich man, who does business throughout the world including Iraq." 4.

Galloway walking past reporters Scottish TV - No BBC FILE 16. Galloway signalling a peace sign as he is carried away from an anti-war protest by police STORYLINE: A British politician who vehemently opposed the U.S.-led war on Iraq denied a newspaper's claim on Tuesday that he received money from Saddam Hussein's regime through the oil-for-food programme. George Galloway, an outspoken member of the governing Labour Party, said The Daily Telegraph's report was part of a "smear campaign" against opponents of the war. He said the allegations were untrue and that he was to sue the newspaper for libel. The Daily Telegraph said its correspondent in Baghdad, David Blair, had seen a memo from the Iraqi intelligence service saying Galloway had asked an Iraqi agent for a larger cut of Iraq's exports under the oil-for-food program. The paper claims that the January 2000 memo said Galloway received between ten and 15 (US) cents from each of three (M) million barrels of Iraqi oil a year. Under United Nations sanctions imposed on Iraq after its 1990 invasion of Kuwait, Iraq was allowed to sell some oil to buy humanitarian supplies. The newspaper reported that the memo said Galloway had asked for a bigger share of the oil income and for "exceptional" commercial contracts, and had entered into partnership with an Iraqi broker to sell oil on the international market. The Daily Telegraph said its reporter found the document and other files in Baghdad's looted Foreign Ministry. Galloway said the documents were forgeries or had been doctored and were part of a "smear campaign against those who stood against the illegal and bloody war on Iraq and against its occupation by foreign forces." Galloway has long opposed his government's policy on the Middle East and leads an anti-sanctions organisation, the Mariam Appeal, and has traveled to Baghdad several times to deliver aid. The Mariam Appeal was set up in 1998 to raise funds for medical treatment for an Iraqi girl suffering from leukemia. Galloway said the appeal was funded largely by the governments of the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia and by Jordanian businessman Fawaz Zureikat. ******************************************************************************************************************* 11:15:01 Ppines SARS: new measures introduced to prevent SARS 11:15:40 airport shots 11:15:46 handing out information to passengers at airport 11:16:41 meeting 11:16:47 checking tickets at airport gate 11:16:58 SOT: there are several hours a day the fever is up and gone...period of time when they don't have a fever...I personally..." 11:17:43 Little boy at airport with mask on STORY: ++Ppines SARS - NEW More measures introduced to prevent spread of SARS LENGTH: 2:46 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 372221 DATELINE: Manila - 22 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Very few people have got the morality, shall we say, the ethics to tell the truth when filling in questionnaires. And so I believe, and this is my own personal belief, that there should be some form of legislation to punish people who lie on filling in these questionnaires, because the disease is too important to allow one case to get through undetected." 10.

SOUNDBITE (English) Dr John Simon, Infectious Diseases Specialist: "The cause of fever in SASS is not like you have it 24 hours a day. There are several hours a day where the fever might be up and down. And it might be that as the person was going through the screening in Hong Kong or Singapore, that was a period of time when he did not have fever. And just after two hours, when they get here, they might have fever. I think you should screen, personally, the temperature when they arrive here at all ports of entry." 13. Ninoy Aquino International Airport General Manager Edgardo Manda (left of screen) seated beside a doctor listening to lecture 14. Various of arriving passengers passing quarantine desk STORYLINE: A British infectious diseases specialist has called for the introduction of laws to punish SASS victims who lie about their condition to Philippines airport officials. Dr John Simon also suggested that incoming passengers be temperature-screened at all ports of entry to the country. The Hong Kong-based doctor made the remarks during a lecture to employees at Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila. Dr Simon said few people would possess the "ethics" to tell the truth on airport questionnaires. And the fluctuating nature of the fever associated with SASS would make it possible for victims to pass through Hong Kong or Singapore screenings undetected. Ninoy Aquino International Airport General Manager Edgardo Manda said that he has already ordered three infrared fever sensor machines to monitor passenger body temperatures. The Philippines has two probable cases of SASS - a nursing attendant who worked in SASS-hit Toronto, Canada and her 72-year-old father. Both have died. About 250 people have been placed under quarantine because of contact with the nurse, and Philippine health officials have investigated nearly 100 others for possible SASS. But so far, no SASS cases have been confirmed. ********************************************************************************************************** 11:17:54 Thailand UK: arrested for possession of heroine 11:18:08 men in police custody 11:18:29 shot of their passports 11:18:36 shots of the heroine STORY: ++Thailand UK - NEW Two Brits arrested with 1.3kg heroin LENGTH: 1:48 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: No Thailand TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: ITV STORY NUMBER: 372273 DATELINE: Bangkok, 22 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Up to two million Shi'ite Muslims have joined the pilgrimage to shrines in the holy cities of Karbala and Najaf. During the morning, the streets of Karbala were heaving with thousands of devout pilgrims heading towards the Imam Hussein's shrine, and that of his brother, the Abbas shrine. The city of Karbala is the site of the 7th-century martyrdom of Hussein, a grandson of the Prophet Muhammad and one of the sect's most revered saints. Amid the throng of pious Shi'ites were groups of bloody boys and men carrying out flagellation ceremonies, cutting themselves in the head with swords as part of the ritual to commemorate the death of the third Shi'ite Imam Hussein. Imam Hussein's body is interred in Karbala. Other pilgrims formed into groups, consisting of people from the same community or village, beating their chests and chanting as they passed the shrines. Many of the Shi'ites, who claim they suffered persecution under the largely Sunni controlled (though secular) regime of Saddam Hussein, are making the long journey from Baghdad, and other parts of Iraq, on foot - a practice formerly forbidden. During the regime, Shi'ite Muslims were only allowed to gather in small groups and the rituals that include flagellation, self-beating and crying were banned. The march comes as Shi'ites are flexing newfound strength since the fall of Saddam, whose mostly Sunni Muslim government severely repressed Iraq's Shi'ite majority. Shi'ites have been setting up local administrations to re-establish order, and religious leaders have emerged as key sources of political power, especially in southern Iraq. At the Karbala gathering, Abed Mehdi Karadalai, Imam of Hussein shrine said the pilgrims are against U.S. and British occupation of Iraq. In an apparent attempt to avoid any friction with the pilgrims, no American troops appeared in the city. Over 60 per cent of Iraq's population are Shi'ite Muslims.

Wide shot of bus in parking lot carrying postal workers STORYLINE: A mail distribution facility in Tacoma in Washington state, was evacuated early Tuesday after preliminary tests indicated a powder found in two envelopes might be a biotoxin. According to Jerry Hauer, acting assistant secretary for public health preparedness at the Department of Health and Human Services, the tests registered positive for plague and botulism. But he cautioned that the tests used hand-held devices that are notoriously unreliable, and that officials were waiting for results of more sophisticated testing that analyses the material's DNA. More accurate testing is being done by an Army National Guard unit from nearby Fort Lewis. The powder was found in two envelopes early this morning. The building was evacuated and four workers were decontaminated as a precaution. An initial field test had shown the powder might be a biotoxin. A postal inspector later said anthrax had been ruled out. Tacoma Fire Department Captain. Jolene Davis said the material was found about 12:45 a.m. on a table where mail is processed. Four people who were close to it were decontaminated as a precaution and taken to a hospital to be checked out, she said, but no one showed any signs of being ill. Local officials had not requested federal assistance, though federal officials were monitoring the situation. Ninety-four people were evacuated from the building. 11:33:30 end of bulletin ******************************************************************************************************************** 11:35:23 Dubai TV 11:45:33 Egypt TV ****************************************************************************************************************** 12:00:39 Middle East Bulletin 12:00:52 replay Baghdad Wrap: tanks, interim police chief, shooting, gravesite ****************************************************************************************************************** 12:05:07 replay UK Galloway

SOUNDBITE (English) George Galloway, British Member of Parliament (Labour) "Well, there are two things wrong with that allegation. The first is that there is no such thing as an oil programme. The oil-for-food deal specifically excludes any Iraqi citizen from participating in any business, that is why the country is under complete embargo. Secondly, the oil-for-food programme is run not from Baghdad but from the United Nations building in New York and anyone receiving funds from the oil-for-food deal receives it from the United Nations' own bank account. So it would be very simple indeed to establish whether a single brass farthing of the oil-for-food money ever came to me or our organisation. We've campaigned over many years, bitterly, against British and American policy in the region and we received funds from only three significant sources: the governments of the United Arab Emirates and the government of Saudi Arabia - these are public knowledge, as is the third - Fawaz Zureikat, the chairman of Mariam Appeal who is a prominent Middle Eastern businessman, an exceedingly rich man, who does business throughout the world including Iraq." 4.

Galloway walking past reporters Scottish TV - No BBC FILE 16. Galloway signalling a peace sign as he is carried away from an anti-war protest by police STORYLINE: A British politician who vehemently opposed the U.S.-led war on Iraq denied a newspaper's claim on Tuesday that he received money from Saddam Hussein's regime through the oil-for-food programme. George Galloway, an outspoken member of the governing Labour Party, said The Daily Telegraph's report was part of a "smear campaign" against opponents of the war. He said the allegations were untrue and that he was to sue the newspaper for libel. The Daily Telegraph said its correspondent in Baghdad, David Blair, had seen a memo from the Iraqi intelligence service saying Galloway had asked an Iraqi agent for a larger cut of Iraq's exports under the oil-for-food program. The paper claims that the January 2000 memo said Galloway received between ten and 15 (US) cents from each of three (M) million barrels of Iraqi oil a year. Under United Nations sanctions imposed on Iraq after its 1990 invasion of Kuwait, Iraq was allowed to sell some oil to buy humanitarian supplies. The newspaper reported that the memo said Galloway had asked for a bigger share of the oil income and for "exceptional" commercial contracts, and had entered into partnership with an Iraqi broker to sell oil on the international market. The Daily Telegraph said its reporter found the document and other files in Baghdad's looted Foreign Ministry. Galloway said the documents were forgeries or had been doctored and were part of a "smear campaign against those who stood against the illegal and bloody war on Iraq and against its occupation by foreign forces." Galloway has long opposed his government's policy on the Middle East and leads an anti-sanctions organisation, the Mariam Appeal, and has traveled to Baghdad several times to deliver aid. The Mariam Appeal was set up in 1998 to raise funds for medical treatment for an Iraqi girl suffering from leukemia. Galloway said the appeal was funded largely by the governments of the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia and by Jordanian businessman Fawaz Zureikat. ******************************************************************************************************************* 11:15:01 Ppines SARS: new measures introduced to prevent SARS 11:15:40 airport shots 11:15:46 handing out information to passengers at airport 11:16:41 meeting 11:16:47 checking tickets at airport gate 11:16:58 SOT: there are several hours a day the fever is up and gone...period of time when they don't have a fever...I personally..." 11:17:43 Little boy at airport with mask on STORY: ++Ppines SARS - NEW More measures introduced to prevent spread of SARS LENGTH: 2:46 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 372221 DATELINE: Manila - 22 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Very few people have got the morality, shall we say, the ethics to tell the truth when filling in questionnaires. And so I believe, and this is my own personal belief, that there should be some form of legislation to punish people who lie on filling in these questionnaires, because the disease is too important to allow one case to get through undetected." 10.

SOUNDBITE (English) Dr John Simon, Infectious Diseases Specialist: "The cause of fever in SASS is not like you have it 24 hours a day. There are several hours a day where the fever might be up and down. And it might be that as the person was going through the screening in Hong Kong or Singapore, that was a period of time when he did not have fever. And just after two hours, when they get here, they might have fever. I think you should screen, personally, the temperature when they arrive here at all ports of entry." 13. Ninoy Aquino International Airport General Manager Edgardo Manda (left of screen) seated beside a doctor listening to lecture 14. Various of arriving passengers passing quarantine desk STORYLINE: A British infectious diseases specialist has called for the introduction of laws to punish SASS victims who lie about their condition to Philippines airport officials. Dr John Simon also suggested that incoming passengers be temperature-screened at all ports of entry to the country. The Hong Kong-based doctor made the remarks during a lecture to employees at Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila. Dr Simon said few people would possess the "ethics" to tell the truth on airport questionnaires. And the fluctuating nature of the fever associated with SASS would make it possible for victims to pass through Hong Kong or Singapore screenings undetected. Ninoy Aquino International Airport General Manager Edgardo Manda said that he has already ordered three infrared fever sensor machines to monitor passenger body temperatures. The Philippines has two probable cases of SASS - a nursing attendant who worked in SASS-hit Toronto, Canada and her 72-year-old father. Both have died. About 250 people have been placed under quarantine because of contact with the nurse, and Philippine health officials have investigated nearly 100 others for possible SASS. But so far, no SASS cases have been confirmed. ********************************************************************************************************** 11:17:54 Thailand UK: arrested for possession of heroine 11:18:08 men in police custody 11:18:29 shot of their passports 11:18:36 shots of the heroine STORY: ++Thailand UK - NEW Two Brits arrested with 1.3kg heroin LENGTH: 1:48 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: No Thailand TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: ITV STORY NUMBER: 372273 DATELINE: Bangkok, 22 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Up to two million Shi'ite Muslims have joined the pilgrimage to shrines in the holy cities of Karbala and Najaf. During the morning, the streets of Karbala were heaving with thousands of devout pilgrims heading towards the Imam Hussein's shrine, and that of his brother, the Abbas shrine. The city of Karbala is the site of the 7th-century martyrdom of Hussein, a grandson of the Prophet Muhammad and one of the sect's most revered saints. Amid the throng of pious Shi'ites were groups of bloody boys and men carrying out flagellation ceremonies, cutting themselves in the head with swords as part of the ritual to commemorate the death of the third Shi'ite Imam Hussein. Imam Hussein's body is interred in Karbala. Other pilgrims formed into groups, consisting of people from the same community or village, beating their chests and chanting as they passed the shrines. Many of the Shi'ites, who claim they suffered persecution under the largely Sunni controlled (though secular) regime of Saddam Hussein, are making the long journey from Baghdad, and other parts of Iraq, on foot - a practice formerly forbidden. During the regime, Shi'ite Muslims were only allowed to gather in small groups and the rituals that include flagellation, self-beating and crying were banned. The march comes as Shi'ites are flexing newfound strength since the fall of Saddam, whose mostly Sunni Muslim government severely repressed Iraq's Shi'ite majority. Shi'ites have been setting up local administrations to re-establish order, and religious leaders have emerged as key sources of political power, especially in southern Iraq. At the Karbala gathering, Abed Mehdi Karadalai, Imam of Hussein shrine said the pilgrims are against U.S. and British occupation of Iraq. In an apparent attempt to avoid any friction with the pilgrims, no American troops appeared in the city. Over 60 per cent of Iraq's population are Shi'ite Muslims.

Wide shot of bus in parking lot carrying postal workers STORYLINE: A mail distribution facility in Tacoma in Washington state, was evacuated early Tuesday after preliminary tests indicated a powder found in two envelopes might be a biotoxin. According to Jerry Hauer, acting assistant secretary for public health preparedness at the Department of Health and Human Services, the tests registered positive for plague and botulism. But he cautioned that the tests used hand-held devices that are notoriously unreliable, and that officials were waiting for results of more sophisticated testing that analyses the material's DNA. More accurate testing is being done by an Army National Guard unit from nearby Fort Lewis. The powder was found in two envelopes early this morning. The building was evacuated and four workers were decontaminated as a precaution. An initial field test had shown the powder might be a biotoxin. A postal inspector later said anthrax had been ruled out. Tacoma Fire Department Captain. Jolene Davis said the material was found about 12:45 a.m. on a table where mail is processed. Four people who were close to it were decontaminated as a precaution and taken to a hospital to be checked out, she said, but no one showed any signs of being ill. Local officials had not requested federal assistance, though federal officials were monitoring the situation. Ninety-four people were evacuated from the building. 11:33:30 end of bulletin ******************************************************************************************************************** 11:35:23 Dubai TV 11:45:33 Egypt TV ****************************************************************************************************************** 12:00:39 Middle East Bulletin 12:00:52 replay Baghdad Wrap: tanks, interim police chief, shooting, gravesite ****************************************************************************************************************** 12:05:07 replay UK Galloway *******************************************************************

SOUNDBITE (English) George Galloway, British Member of Parliament (Labour) "Well, there are two things wrong with that allegation. The first is that there is no such thing as an oil programme. The oil-for-food deal specifically excludes any Iraqi citizen from participating in any business, that is why the country is under complete embargo. Secondly, the oil-for-food programme is run not from Baghdad but from the United Nations building in New York and anyone receiving funds from the oil-for-food deal receives it from the United Nations' own bank account. So it would be very simple indeed to establish whether a single brass farthing of the oil-for-food money ever came to me or our organisation. We've campaigned over many years, bitterly, against British and American policy in the region and we received funds from only three significant sources: the governments of the United Arab Emirates and the government of Saudi Arabia - these are public knowledge, as is the third - Fawaz Zureikat, the chairman of Mariam Appeal who is a prominent Middle Eastern businessman, an exceedingly rich man, who does business throughout the world including Iraq." 4.

Galloway walking past reporters Scottish TV - No BBC FILE 16. Galloway signalling a peace sign as he is carried away from an anti-war protest by police STORYLINE: A British politician who vehemently opposed the U.S.-led war on Iraq denied a newspaper's claim on Tuesday that he received money from Saddam Hussein's regime through the oil-for-food programme. George Galloway, an outspoken member of the governing Labour Party, said The Daily Telegraph's report was part of a "smear campaign" against opponents of the war. He said the allegations were untrue and that he was to sue the newspaper for libel. The Daily Telegraph said its correspondent in Baghdad, David Blair, had seen a memo from the Iraqi intelligence service saying Galloway had asked an Iraqi agent for a larger cut of Iraq's exports under the oil-for-food program. The paper claims that the January 2000 memo said Galloway received between ten and 15 (US) cents from each of three (M) million barrels of Iraqi oil a year. Under United Nations sanctions imposed on Iraq after its 1990 invasion of Kuwait, Iraq was allowed to sell some oil to buy humanitarian supplies. The newspaper reported that the memo said Galloway had asked for a bigger share of the oil income and for "exceptional" commercial contracts, and had entered into partnership with an Iraqi broker to sell oil on the international market. The Daily Telegraph said its reporter found the document and other files in Baghdad's looted Foreign Ministry. Galloway said the documents were forgeries or had been doctored and were part of a "smear campaign against those who stood against the illegal and bloody war on Iraq and against its occupation by foreign forces." Galloway has long opposed his government's policy on the Middle East and leads an anti-sanctions organisation, the Mariam Appeal, and has traveled to Baghdad several times to deliver aid. The Mariam Appeal was set up in 1998 to raise funds for medical treatment for an Iraqi girl suffering from leukemia. Galloway said the appeal was funded largely by the governments of the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia and by Jordanian businessman Fawaz Zureikat. ******************************************************************************************************************* 11:15:01 Ppines SARS: new measures introduced to prevent SARS 11:15:40 airport shots 11:15:46 handing out information to passengers at airport 11:16:41 meeting 11:16:47 checking tickets at airport gate 11:16:58 SOT: there are several hours a day the fever is up and gone...period of time when they don't have a fever...I personally..." 11:17:43 Little boy at airport with mask on STORY: ++Ppines SARS - NEW More measures introduced to prevent spread of SARS LENGTH: 2:46 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 372221 DATELINE: Manila - 22 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Very few people have got the morality, shall we say, the ethics to tell the truth when filling in questionnaires. And so I believe, and this is my own personal belief, that there should be some form of legislation to punish people who lie on filling in these questionnaires, because the disease is too important to allow one case to get through undetected." 10.

SOUNDBITE (English) Dr John Simon, Infectious Diseases Specialist: "The cause of fever in SASS is not like you have it 24 hours a day. There are several hours a day where the fever might be up and down. And it might be that as the person was going through the screening in Hong Kong or Singapore, that was a period of time when he did not have fever. And just after two hours, when they get here, they might have fever. I think you should screen, personally, the temperature when they arrive here at all ports of entry." 13. Ninoy Aquino International Airport General Manager Edgardo Manda (left of screen) seated beside a doctor listening to lecture 14. Various of arriving passengers passing quarantine desk STORYLINE: A British infectious diseases specialist has called for the introduction of laws to punish SASS victims who lie about their condition to Philippines airport officials. Dr John Simon also suggested that incoming passengers be temperature-screened at all ports of entry to the country. The Hong Kong-based doctor made the remarks during a lecture to employees at Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila. Dr Simon said few people would possess the "ethics" to tell the truth on airport questionnaires. And the fluctuating nature of the fever associated with SASS would make it possible for victims to pass through Hong Kong or Singapore screenings undetected. Ninoy Aquino International Airport General Manager Edgardo Manda said that he has already ordered three infrared fever sensor machines to monitor passenger body temperatures. The Philippines has two probable cases of SASS - a nursing attendant who worked in SASS-hit Toronto, Canada and her 72-year-old father. Both have died. About 250 people have been placed under quarantine because of contact with the nurse, and Philippine health officials have investigated nearly 100 others for possible SASS. But so far, no SASS cases have been confirmed. ********************************************************************************************************** 11:17:54 Thailand UK: arrested for possession of heroine 11:18:08 men in police custody 11:18:29 shot of their passports 11:18:36 shots of the heroine STORY: ++Thailand UK - NEW Two Brits arrested with 1.3kg heroin LENGTH: 1:48 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: No Thailand TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: ITV STORY NUMBER: 372273 DATELINE: Bangkok, 22 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Up to two million Shi'ite Muslims have joined the pilgrimage to shrines in the holy cities of Karbala and Najaf. During the morning, the streets of Karbala were heaving with thousands of devout pilgrims heading towards the Imam Hussein's shrine, and that of his brother, the Abbas shrine. The city of Karbala is the site of the 7th-century martyrdom of Hussein, a grandson of the Prophet Muhammad and one of the sect's most revered saints. Amid the throng of pious Shi'ites were groups of bloody boys and men carrying out flagellation ceremonies, cutting themselves in the head with swords as part of the ritual to commemorate the death of the third Shi'ite Imam Hussein. Imam Hussein's body is interred in Karbala. Other pilgrims formed into groups, consisting of people from the same community or village, beating their chests and chanting as they passed the shrines. Many of the Shi'ites, who claim they suffered persecution under the largely Sunni controlled (though secular) regime of Saddam Hussein, are making the long journey from Baghdad, and other parts of Iraq, on foot - a practice formerly forbidden. During the regime, Shi'ite Muslims were only allowed to gather in small groups and the rituals that include flagellation, self-beating and crying were banned. The march comes as Shi'ites are flexing newfound strength since the fall of Saddam, whose mostly Sunni Muslim government severely repressed Iraq's Shi'ite majority. Shi'ites have been setting up local administrations to re-establish order, and religious leaders have emerged as key sources of political power, especially in southern Iraq. At the Karbala gathering, Abed Mehdi Karadalai, Imam of Hussein shrine said the pilgrims are against U.S. and British occupation of Iraq. In an apparent attempt to avoid any friction with the pilgrims, no American troops appeared in the city. Over 60 per cent of Iraq's population are Shi'ite Muslims.

Wide shot of bus in parking lot carrying postal workers STORYLINE: A mail distribution facility in Tacoma in Washington state, was evacuated early Tuesday after preliminary tests indicated a powder found in two envelopes might be a biotoxin. According to Jerry Hauer, acting assistant secretary for public health preparedness at the Department of Health and Human Services, the tests registered positive for plague and botulism. But he cautioned that the tests used hand-held devices that are notoriously unreliable, and that officials were waiting for results of more sophisticated testing that analyses the material's DNA. More accurate testing is being done by an Army National Guard unit from nearby Fort Lewis. The powder was found in two envelopes early this morning. The building was evacuated and four workers were decontaminated as a precaution. An initial field test had shown the powder might be a biotoxin. A postal inspector later said anthrax had been ruled out. Tacoma Fire Department Captain. Jolene Davis said the material was found about 12:45 a.m. on a table where mail is processed. Four people who were close to it were decontaminated as a precaution and taken to a hospital to be checked out, she said, but no one showed any signs of being ill. Local officials had not requested federal assistance, though federal officials were monitoring the situation. Ninety-four people were evacuated from the building. 11:33:30 end of bulletin ******************************************************************************************************************** 11:35:23 Dubai TV 11:45:33 Egypt TV ****************************************************************************************************************** 12:00:39 Middle East Bulletin 12:00:52 replay Baghdad Wrap: tanks, interim police chief, shooting, gravesite ****************************************************************************************************************** 12:05:07 replay UK Galloway

SOUNDBITE (English) George Galloway, British Member of Parliament (Labour) "Well, there are two things wrong with that allegation. The first is that there is no such thing as an oil programme. The oil-for-food deal specifically excludes any Iraqi citizen from participating in any business, that is why the country is under complete embargo. Secondly, the oil-for-food programme is run not from Baghdad but from the United Nations building in New York and anyone receiving funds from the oil-for-food deal receives it from the United Nations' own bank account. So it would be very simple indeed to establish whether a single brass farthing of the oil-for-food money ever came to me or our organisation. We've campaigned over many years, bitterly, against British and American policy in the region and we received funds from only three significant sources: the governments of the United Arab Emirates and the government of Saudi Arabia - these are public knowledge, as is the third - Fawaz Zureikat, the chairman of Mariam Appeal who is a prominent Middle Eastern businessman, an exceedingly rich man, who does business throughout the world including Iraq." 4.

Galloway walking past reporters Scottish TV - No BBC FILE 16. Galloway signalling a peace sign as he is carried away from an anti-war protest by police STORYLINE: A British politician who vehemently opposed the U.S.-led war on Iraq denied a newspaper's claim on Tuesday that he received money from Saddam Hussein's regime through the oil-for-food programme. George Galloway, an outspoken member of the governing Labour Party, said The Daily Telegraph's report was part of a "smear campaign" against opponents of the war. He said the allegations were untrue and that he was to sue the newspaper for libel. The Daily Telegraph said its correspondent in Baghdad, David Blair, had seen a memo from the Iraqi intelligence service saying Galloway had asked an Iraqi agent for a larger cut of Iraq's exports under the oil-for-food program. The paper claims that the January 2000 memo said Galloway received between ten and 15 (US) cents from each of three (M) million barrels of Iraqi oil a year. Under United Nations sanctions imposed on Iraq after its 1990 invasion of Kuwait, Iraq was allowed to sell some oil to buy humanitarian supplies. The newspaper reported that the memo said Galloway had asked for a bigger share of the oil income and for "exceptional" commercial contracts, and had entered into partnership with an Iraqi broker to sell oil on the international market. The Daily Telegraph said its reporter found the document and other files in Baghdad's looted Foreign Ministry. Galloway said the documents were forgeries or had been doctored and were part of a "smear campaign against those who stood against the illegal and bloody war on Iraq and against its occupation by foreign forces." Galloway has long opposed his government's policy on the Middle East and leads an anti-sanctions organisation, the Mariam Appeal, and has traveled to Baghdad several times to deliver aid. The Mariam Appeal was set up in 1998 to raise funds for medical treatment for an Iraqi girl suffering from leukemia. Galloway said the appeal was funded largely by the governments of the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia and by Jordanian businessman Fawaz Zureikat. ******************************************************************************************************************* 11:15:01 Ppines SARS: new measures introduced to prevent SARS 11:15:40 airport shots 11:15:46 handing out information to passengers at airport 11:16:41 meeting 11:16:47 checking tickets at airport gate 11:16:58 SOT: there are several hours a day the fever is up and gone...period of time when they don't have a fever...I personally..." 11:17:43 Little boy at airport with mask on STORY: ++Ppines SARS - NEW More measures introduced to prevent spread of SARS LENGTH: 2:46 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 372221 DATELINE: Manila - 22 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Very few people have got the morality, shall we say, the ethics to tell the truth when filling in questionnaires. And so I believe, and this is my own personal belief, that there should be some form of legislation to punish people who lie on filling in these questionnaires, because the disease is too important to allow one case to get through undetected." 10.

SOUNDBITE (English) Dr John Simon, Infectious Diseases Specialist: "The cause of fever in SASS is not like you have it 24 hours a day. There are several hours a day where the fever might be up and down. And it might be that as the person was going through the screening in Hong Kong or Singapore, that was a period of time when he did not have fever. And just after two hours, when they get here, they might have fever. I think you should screen, personally, the temperature when they arrive here at all ports of entry." 13. Ninoy Aquino International Airport General Manager Edgardo Manda (left of screen) seated beside a doctor listening to lecture 14. Various of arriving passengers passing quarantine desk STORYLINE: A British infectious diseases specialist has called for the introduction of laws to punish SASS victims who lie about their condition to Philippines airport officials. Dr John Simon also suggested that incoming passengers be temperature-screened at all ports of entry to the country. The Hong Kong-based doctor made the remarks during a lecture to employees at Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila. Dr Simon said few people would possess the "ethics" to tell the truth on airport questionnaires. And the fluctuating nature of the fever associated with SASS would make it possible for victims to pass through Hong Kong or Singapore screenings undetected. Ninoy Aquino International Airport General Manager Edgardo Manda said that he has already ordered three infrared fever sensor machines to monitor passenger body temperatures. The Philippines has two probable cases of SASS - a nursing attendant who worked in SASS-hit Toronto, Canada and her 72-year-old father. Both have died. About 250 people have been placed under quarantine because of contact with the nurse, and Philippine health officials have investigated nearly 100 others for possible SASS. But so far, no SASS cases have been confirmed. ********************************************************************************************************** 11:17:54 Thailand UK: arrested for possession of heroine 11:18:08 men in police custody 11:18:29 shot of their passports 11:18:36 shots of the heroine STORY: ++Thailand UK - NEW Two Brits arrested with 1.3kg heroin LENGTH: 1:48 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: No Thailand TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: ITV STORY NUMBER: 372273 DATELINE: Bangkok, 22 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Up to two million Shi'ite Muslims have joined the pilgrimage to shrines in the holy cities of Karbala and Najaf. During the morning, the streets of Karbala were heaving with thousands of devout pilgrims heading towards the Imam Hussein's shrine, and that of his brother, the Abbas shrine. The city of Karbala is the site of the 7th-century martyrdom of Hussein, a grandson of the Prophet Muhammad and one of the sect's most revered saints. Amid the throng of pious Shi'ites were groups of bloody boys and men carrying out flagellation ceremonies, cutting themselves in the head with swords as part of the ritual to commemorate the death of the third Shi'ite Imam Hussein. Imam Hussein's body is interred in Karbala. Other pilgrims formed into groups, consisting of people from the same community or village, beating their chests and chanting as they passed the shrines. Many of the Shi'ites, who claim they suffered persecution under the largely Sunni controlled (though secular) regime of Saddam Hussein, are making the long journey from Baghdad, and other parts of Iraq, on foot - a practice formerly forbidden. During the regime, Shi'ite Muslims were only allowed to gather in small groups and the rituals that include flagellation, self-beating and crying were banned. The march comes as Shi'ites are flexing newfound strength since the fall of Saddam, whose mostly Sunni Muslim government severely repressed Iraq's Shi'ite majority. Shi'ites have been setting up local administrations to re-establish order, and religious leaders have emerged as key sources of political power, especially in southern Iraq. At the Karbala gathering, Abed Mehdi Karadalai, Imam of Hussein shrine said the pilgrims are against U.S. and British occupation of Iraq. In an apparent attempt to avoid any friction with the pilgrims, no American troops appeared in the city. Over 60 per cent of Iraq's population are Shi'ite Muslims.

Wide shot of bus in parking lot carrying postal workers STORYLINE: A mail distribution facility in Tacoma in Washington state, was evacuated early Tuesday after preliminary tests indicated a powder found in two envelopes might be a biotoxin. According to Jerry Hauer, acting assistant secretary for public health preparedness at the Department of Health and Human Services, the tests registered positive for plague and botulism. But he cautioned that the tests used hand-held devices that are notoriously unreliable, and that officials were waiting for results of more sophisticated testing that analyses the material's DNA. More accurate testing is being done by an Army National Guard unit from nearby Fort Lewis. The powder was found in two envelopes early this morning. The building was evacuated and four workers were decontaminated as a precaution. An initial field test had shown the powder might be a biotoxin. A postal inspector later said anthrax had been ruled out. Tacoma Fire Department Captain. Jolene Davis said the material was found about 12:45 a.m. on a table where mail is processed. Four people who were close to it were decontaminated as a precaution and taken to a hospital to be checked out, she said, but no one showed any signs of being ill. Local officials had not requested federal assistance, though federal officials were monitoring the situation. Ninety-four people were evacuated from the building. 11:33:30 end of bulletin ******************************************************************************************************************** 11:35:23 Dubai TV 11:45:33 Egypt TV ****************************************************************************************************************** 12:00:39 Middle East Bulletin 12:00:52 replay Baghdad Wrap: tanks, interim police chief, shooting, gravesite ****************************************************************************************************************** 12:05:07 replay UK Galloway

SOUNDBITE (English) George Galloway, British Member of Parliament (Labour) "Well, there are two things wrong with that allegation. The first is that there is no such thing as an oil programme. The oil-for-food deal specifically excludes any Iraqi citizen from participating in any business, that is why the country is under complete embargo. Secondly, the oil-for-food programme is run not from Baghdad but from the United Nations building in New York and anyone receiving funds from the oil-for-food deal receives it from the United Nations' own bank account. So it would be very simple indeed to establish whether a single brass farthing of the oil-for-food money ever came to me or our organisation. We've campaigned over many years, bitterly, against British and American policy in the region and we received funds from only three significant sources: the governments of the United Arab Emirates and the government of Saudi Arabia - these are public knowledge, as is the third - Fawaz Zureikat, the chairman of Mariam Appeal who is a prominent Middle Eastern businessman, an exceedingly rich man, who does business throughout the world including Iraq." 4.

Galloway walking past reporters Scottish TV - No BBC FILE 16. Galloway signalling a peace sign as he is carried away from an anti-war protest by police STORYLINE: A British politician who vehemently opposed the U.S.-led war on Iraq denied a newspaper's claim on Tuesday that he received money from Saddam Hussein's regime through the oil-for-food programme. George Galloway, an outspoken member of the governing Labour Party, said The Daily Telegraph's report was part of a "smear campaign" against opponents of the war. He said the allegations were untrue and that he was to sue the newspaper for libel. The Daily Telegraph said its correspondent in Baghdad, David Blair, had seen a memo from the Iraqi intelligence service saying Galloway had asked an Iraqi agent for a larger cut of Iraq's exports under the oil-for-food program. The paper claims that the January 2000 memo said Galloway received between ten and 15 (US) cents from each of three (M) million barrels of Iraqi oil a year. Under United Nations sanctions imposed on Iraq after its 1990 invasion of Kuwait, Iraq was allowed to sell some oil to buy humanitarian supplies. The newspaper reported that the memo said Galloway had asked for a bigger share of the oil income and for "exceptional" commercial contracts, and had entered into partnership with an Iraqi broker to sell oil on the international market. The Daily Telegraph said its reporter found the document and other files in Baghdad's looted Foreign Ministry. Galloway said the documents were forgeries or had been doctored and were part of a "smear campaign against those who stood against the illegal and bloody war on Iraq and against its occupation by foreign forces." Galloway has long opposed his government's policy on the Middle East and leads an anti-sanctions organisation, the Mariam Appeal, and has traveled to Baghdad several times to deliver aid. The Mariam Appeal was set up in 1998 to raise funds for medical treatment for an Iraqi girl suffering from leukemia. Galloway said the appeal was funded largely by the governments of the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia and by Jordanian businessman Fawaz Zureikat. ******************************************************************************************************************* 11:15:01 Ppines SARS: new measures introduced to prevent SARS 11:15:40 airport shots 11:15:46 handing out information to passengers at airport 11:16:41 meeting 11:16:47 checking tickets at airport gate 11:16:58 SOT: there are several hours a day the fever is up and gone...period of time when they don't have a fever...I personally..." 11:17:43 Little boy at airport with mask on STORY: ++Ppines SARS - NEW More measures introduced to prevent spread of SARS LENGTH: 2:46 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 372221 DATELINE: Manila - 22 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Very few people have got the morality, shall we say, the ethics to tell the truth when filling in questionnaires. And so I believe, and this is my own personal belief, that there should be some form of legislation to punish people who lie on filling in these questionnaires, because the disease is too important to allow one case to get through undetected." 10.

SOUNDBITE (English) Dr John Simon, Infectious Diseases Specialist: "The cause of fever in SASS is not like you have it 24 hours a day. There are several hours a day where the fever might be up and down. And it might be that as the person was going through the screening in Hong Kong or Singapore, that was a period of time when he did not have fever. And just after two hours, when they get here, they might have fever. I think you should screen, personally, the temperature when they arrive here at all ports of entry." 13. Ninoy Aquino International Airport General Manager Edgardo Manda (left of screen) seated beside a doctor listening to lecture 14. Various of arriving passengers passing quarantine desk STORYLINE: A British infectious diseases specialist has called for the introduction of laws to punish SASS victims who lie about their condition to Philippines airport officials. Dr John Simon also suggested that incoming passengers be temperature-screened at all ports of entry to the country. The Hong Kong-based doctor made the remarks during a lecture to employees at Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila. Dr Simon said few people would possess the "ethics" to tell the truth on airport questionnaires. And the fluctuating nature of the fever associated with SASS would make it possible for victims to pass through Hong Kong or Singapore screenings undetected. Ninoy Aquino International Airport General Manager Edgardo Manda said that he has already ordered three infrared fever sensor machines to monitor passenger body temperatures. The Philippines has two probable cases of SASS - a nursing attendant who worked in SASS-hit Toronto, Canada and her 72-year-old father. Both have died. About 250 people have been placed under quarantine because of contact with the nurse, and Philippine health officials have investigated nearly 100 others for possible SASS. But so far, no SASS cases have been confirmed. ********************************************************************************************************** 11:17:54 Thailand UK: arrested for possession of heroine 11:18:08 men in police custody 11:18:29 shot of their passports 11:18:36 shots of the heroine STORY: ++Thailand UK - NEW Two Brits arrested with 1.3kg heroin LENGTH: 1:48 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: No Thailand TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: ITV STORY NUMBER: 372273 DATELINE: Bangkok, 22 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Up to two million Shi'ite Muslims have joined the pilgrimage to shrines in the holy cities of Karbala and Najaf. During the morning, the streets of Karbala were heaving with thousands of devout pilgrims heading towards the Imam Hussein's shrine, and that of his brother, the Abbas shrine. The city of Karbala is the site of the 7th-century martyrdom of Hussein, a grandson of the Prophet Muhammad and one of the sect's most revered saints. Amid the throng of pious Shi'ites were groups of bloody boys and men carrying out flagellation ceremonies, cutting themselves in the head with swords as part of the ritual to commemorate the death of the third Shi'ite Imam Hussein. Imam Hussein's body is interred in Karbala. Other pilgrims formed into groups, consisting of people from the same community or village, beating their chests and chanting as they passed the shrines. Many of the Shi'ites, who claim they suffered persecution under the largely Sunni controlled (though secular) regime of Saddam Hussein, are making the long journey from Baghdad, and other parts of Iraq, on foot - a practice formerly forbidden. During the regime, Shi'ite Muslims were only allowed to gather in small groups and the rituals that include flagellation, self-beating and crying were banned. The march comes as Shi'ites are flexing newfound strength since the fall of Saddam, whose mostly Sunni Muslim government severely repressed Iraq's Shi'ite majority. Shi'ites have been setting up local administrations to re-establish order, and religious leaders have emerged as key sources of political power, especially in southern Iraq. At the Karbala gathering, Abed Mehdi Karadalai, Imam of Hussein shrine said the pilgrims are against U.S. and British occupation of Iraq. In an apparent attempt to avoid any friction with the pilgrims, no American troops appeared in the city. Over 60 per cent of Iraq's population are Shi'ite Muslims.

Wide shot of bus in parking lot carrying postal workers STORYLINE: A mail distribution facility in Tacoma in Washington state, was evacuated early Tuesday after preliminary tests indicated a powder found in two envelopes might be a biotoxin. According to Jerry Hauer, acting assistant secretary for public health preparedness at the Department of Health and Human Services, the tests registered positive for plague and botulism. But he cautioned that the tests used hand-held devices that are notoriously unreliable, and that officials were waiting for results of more sophisticated testing that analyses the material's DNA. More accurate testing is being done by an Army National Guard unit from nearby Fort Lewis. The powder was found in two envelopes early this morning. The building was evacuated and four workers were decontaminated as a precaution. An initial field test had shown the powder might be a biotoxin. A postal inspector later said anthrax had been ruled out. Tacoma Fire Department Captain. Jolene Davis said the material was found about 12:45 a.m. on a table where mail is processed. Four people who were close to it were decontaminated as a precaution and taken to a hospital to be checked out, she said, but no one showed any signs of being ill. Local officials had not requested federal assistance, though federal officials were monitoring the situation. Ninety-four people were evacuated from the building. 11:33:30 end of bulletin ******************************************************************************************************************** 11:35:23 Dubai TV 11:45:33 Egypt TV ****************************************************************************************************************** 12:00:39 Middle East Bulletin 12:00:52 replay Baghdad Wrap: tanks, interim police chief, shooting, gravesite ****************************************************************************************************************** 12:05:07 replay UK Galloway

SOUNDBITE (English) George Galloway, British Member of Parliament (Labour) "Well, there are two things wrong with that allegation. The first is that there is no such thing as an oil programme. The oil-for-food deal specifically excludes any Iraqi citizen from participating in any business, that is why the country is under complete embargo. Secondly, the oil-for-food programme is run not from Baghdad but from the United Nations building in New York and anyone receiving funds from the oil-for-food deal receives it from the United Nations' own bank account. So it would be very simple indeed to establish whether a single brass farthing of the oil-for-food money ever came to me or our organisation. We've campaigned over many years, bitterly, against British and American policy in the region and we received funds from only three significant sources: the governments of the United Arab Emirates and the government of Saudi Arabia - these are public knowledge, as is the third - Fawaz Zureikat, the chairman of Mariam Appeal who is a prominent Middle Eastern businessman, an exceedingly rich man, who does business throughout the world including Iraq." 4.

Galloway walking past reporters Scottish TV - No BBC FILE 16. Galloway signalling a peace sign as he is carried away from an anti-war protest by police STORYLINE: A British politician who vehemently opposed the U.S.-led war on Iraq denied a newspaper's claim on Tuesday that he received money from Saddam Hussein's regime through the oil-for-food programme. George Galloway, an outspoken member of the governing Labour Party, said The Daily Telegraph's report was part of a "smear campaign" against opponents of the war. He said the allegations were untrue and that he was to sue the newspaper for libel. The Daily Telegraph said its correspondent in Baghdad, David Blair, had seen a memo from the Iraqi intelligence service saying Galloway had asked an Iraqi agent for a larger cut of Iraq's exports under the oil-for-food program. The paper claims that the January 2000 memo said Galloway received between ten and 15 (US) cents from each of three (M) million barrels of Iraqi oil a year. Under United Nations sanctions imposed on Iraq after its 1990 invasion of Kuwait, Iraq was allowed to sell some oil to buy humanitarian supplies. The newspaper reported that the memo said Galloway had asked for a bigger share of the oil income and for "exceptional" commercial contracts, and had entered into partnership with an Iraqi broker to sell oil on the international market. The Daily Telegraph said its reporter found the document and other files in Baghdad's looted Foreign Ministry. Galloway said the documents were forgeries or had been doctored and were part of a "smear campaign against those who stood against the illegal and bloody war on Iraq and against its occupation by foreign forces." Galloway has long opposed his government's policy on the Middle East and leads an anti-sanctions organisation, the Mariam Appeal, and has traveled to Baghdad several times to deliver aid. The Mariam Appeal was set up in 1998 to raise funds for medical treatment for an Iraqi girl suffering from leukemia. Galloway said the appeal was funded largely by the governments of the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia and by Jordanian businessman Fawaz Zureikat. ******************************************************************************************************************* 11:15:01 Ppines SARS: new measures introduced to prevent SARS 11:15:40 airport shots 11:15:46 handing out information to passengers at airport 11:16:41 meeting 11:16:47 checking tickets at airport gate 11:16:58 SOT: there are several hours a day the fever is up and gone...period of time when they don't have a fever...I personally..." 11:17:43 Little boy at airport with mask on STORY: ++Ppines SARS - NEW More measures introduced to prevent spread of SARS LENGTH: 2:46 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 372221 DATELINE: Manila - 22 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Very few people have got the morality, shall we say, the ethics to tell the truth when filling in questionnaires. And so I believe, and this is my own personal belief, that there should be some form of legislation to punish people who lie on filling in these questionnaires, because the disease is too important to allow one case to get through undetected." 10.

There are several hours a day where the fever might be up and down. And it might be that as the person was going through the screening in Hong Kong or Singapore, that was a period of time when he did not have fever. And just after two hours, when they get here, they might have fever. I think you should screen, personally, the temperature when they arrive here at all ports of entry." 13. Ninoy Aquino International Airport General Manager Edgardo Manda (left of screen) seated beside a doctor listening to lecture 14. Various of arriving passengers passing quarantine desk STORYLINE: A British infectious diseases specialist has called for the introduction of laws to punish SASS victims who lie about their condition to Philippines airport officials. Dr John Simon also suggested that incoming passengers be temperature-screened at all ports of entry to the country. The Hong Kong-based doctor made the remarks during a lecture to employees at Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila. Dr Simon said few people would possess the "ethics" to tell the truth on airport questionnaires. And the fluctuating nature of the fever associated with SASS would make it possible for victims to pass through Hong Kong or Singapore screenings undetected. Ninoy Aquino International Airport General Manager Edgardo Manda said that he has already ordered three infrared fever sensor machines to monitor passenger body temperatures. The Philippines has two probable cases of SASS - a nursing attendant who worked in SASS-hit Toronto, Canada and her 72-year-old father. Both have died. About 250 people have been placed under quarantine because of contact with the nurse, and Philippine health officials have investigated nearly 100 others for possible SASS. But so far, no SASS cases have been confirmed. ********************************************************************************************************** 11:17:54 Thailand UK: arrested for possession of heroine 11:18:08 men in police custody 11:18:29 shot of their passports 11:18:36 shots of the heroine STORY: ++Thailand UK - NEW Two Brits arrested with 1.3kg heroin LENGTH: 1:48 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: No Thailand TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: ITV STORY NUMBER: 372273 DATELINE: Bangkok, 22 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Tilt down from gold dome and minarets, past mosque building to large crowd of chanting pilgrims STORYLINE: Hundreds of thousands of Shiite pilgrims marched to Karbala's holy shrine on Tuesday to mark the death of one of their most revered saints - chanting, swaying, and their cutting their bodies in an emotional ritual that had been banned for decades under Saddam Hussein. Up to two million Shi'ite Muslims have joined the pilgrimage to shrines in the holy cities of Karbala and Najaf. During the morning, the streets of Karbala were heaving with thousands of devout pilgrims heading towards the Imam Hussein's shrine, and that of his brother, the Abbas shrine. The city of Karbala is the site of the 7th-century martyrdom of Hussein, a grandson of the Prophet Muhammad and one of the sect's most revered saints. Amid the throng of pious Shi'ites were groups of bloody boys and men carrying out flagellation ceremonies, cutting themselves in the head with swords as part of the ritual to commemorate the death of the third Shi'ite Imam Hussein. Imam Hussein's body is interred in Karbala. Other pilgrims formed into groups, consisting of people from the same community or village, beating their chests and chanting as they passed the shrines. Many of the Shi'ites, who claim they suffered persecution under the largely Sunni controlled (though secular) regime of Saddam Hussein, are making the long journey from Baghdad, and other parts of Iraq, on foot - a practice formerly forbidden. During the regime, Shi'ite Muslims were only allowed to gather in small groups and the rituals that include flagellation, self-beating and crying were banned. The march comes as Shi'ites are flexing newfound strength since the fall of Saddam, whose mostly Sunni Muslim government severely repressed Iraq's Shi'ite majority. Shi'ites have been setting up local administrations to re-establish order, and religious leaders have emerged as key sources of political power, especially in southern Iraq. At the Karbala gathering, Abed Mehdi Karadalai, Imam of Hussein shrine said the pilgrims are against U.S. and British occupation of Iraq. In an apparent attempt to avoid any friction with the pilgrims, no American troops appeared in the city. Over 60 per cent of Iraq's population are Shi'ite Muslims. The annual pilgrimage culminates on Thursday. ************************************************************************************************************** 11:22:41 iraq garner 2 11:22:49 flying shot, helicopter shot 11:23:06 walking shot of Garner amons 11:23:14 Garner holding hands with other Iraqis 11:23:25 Garner sits down for presser 11:23:36 Garner SOT: for the past 12 years have established a model for freedom and leadership...you can see it in the faces of the people...take this type of experience and spread it through all of Iraq..." 11:24:20 Tim Cross (UK) SOT:"...I congratulate these leaders in what they have accomplished in these past 12 years..." 11:24:52 SOT from Iraq with translation 11:25:03 SOT from IRaqi: "Our dream is to base it on the democracy...and equal citizenship rights for everyone 11:25:32 Garner SOT: "Our desire is the new govt of Iraq represent the Iraqi people...represent the authenticity of Iraq" ******************************************************************************************************************* 11:26:01 UN Blix 11:26:04 exterior shots of UN in NY 11:26:17 Blix walks into building 11:26:25 Blix at stake out mic: "the need for some signals and ajustments for the basis of our work there, we are serving the council as you know" 11:26:49 SOT:" they want to have stability before you can have inspections all over, more scientific groups can do" 11:27:16 Blix walks away 11:27:31 Russia: "we want to know that there are no WMDs in Iraq, and report back to the Security Council" ***************************************************************************************************************** 11:28:17 Egypt Necropolis 11:28:28 shots of pyramids 11:28:36 Egyptians looing in underground hole 11:28:51 writing, hyrogliphics on the walls of the cave, 11:29:16 underground tunnel 11:29:39 SOT: the discovery is important because we discovered old tumes...important cemetery that...is a tume of a priest..." 11:30:23 bones in a bucket 11:30:34 SOT: the tumes are full of scenes...the has been working in one year, it's a french expedition...the scenes are telling us about the daily life of this kingdon" **************************************************************************************************************** 11:31:20 US Toxin 11:31:27 tents in parking lot 11:31:36 military setting up satellite dish 11:31:40 fire truck 11:32:03 more tents 11:32:14 crime tape around scene 11:32:23 pan to firetruck and emergency crew 11:32:32 sign on door, temporarily closed 11:32:49 police blocking entrance 11:33:05 people on bus one with a mask 11:33:11 sot with woman wiht mask on: "we've both been burned..."

Wide shot of bus in parking lot carrying postal workers STORYLINE: A mail distribution facility in Tacoma in Washington state, was evacuated early Tuesday after preliminary tests indicated a powder found in two envelopes might be a biotoxin. According to Jerry Hauer, acting assistant secretary for public health preparedness at the Department of Health and Human Services, the tests registered positive for plague and botulism. But he cautioned that the tests used hand-held devices that are notoriously unreliable, and that officials were waiting for results of more sophisticated testing that analyses the material's DNA. More accurate testing is being done by an Army National Guard unit from nearby Fort Lewis. The powder was found in two envelopes early this morning. The building was evacuated and four workers were decontaminated as a precaution. An initial field test had shown the powder might be a biotoxin. A postal inspector later said anthrax had been ruled out. Tacoma Fire Department Captain. Jolene Davis said the material was found about 12:45 a.m. on a table where mail is processed. Four people who were close to it were decontaminated as a precaution and taken to a hospital to be checked out, she said, but no one showed any signs of being ill. Local officials had not requested federal assistance, though federal officials were monitoring the situation. Ninety-four people were evacuated from the building. 11:33:30 end of bulletin ******************************************************************************************************************** 11:35:23 Dubai TV 11:45:33 Egypt TV ****************************************************************************************************************** 12:00:39 Middle East Bulletin 12:00:52 replay Baghdad Wrap: tanks, interim police chief, shooting, gravesite ****************************************************************************************************************** 12:05:07 replay UK Galloway *******************************************************************

Wide of crash scene STORYLINE An Air India Express plane trying to land at a tricky hilltop airport in southern India overshot the runway early on Saturday, crashed over a cliff and burst into flames, killing nearly 160 people, officials said. There were eight survivors. Scores of villagers scrambled over the hilly terrain to reach the wreckage, and began aiding in the rescue operation. Dense black smoke billowed from the wreckage of the flaming Boeing 737-800 aircraft in a hilly area with thick grass and trees just outside Mangalore's Bajpe airport, which lies around 12 miles (19 kilometres) from Mangalore itself. Firefighters sprayed water and foam on the plane - which had travelled from Dubai - as others struggled to find survivors. An Associated Press photo showed two rescuers running up a hill carrying a young child covered in foam to waiting medics. The child's fate was not immediately known. The plane was carrying 160 passengers - all Indian - and six crew members, according to Air India official Anup Srivastava. The pilot and co-pilot were among the dead. Workers pulled scores of burned bodies from the blackened tangle of aircraft cables, twisted metal, charred trees and mud at the crash site. Many of the dead were strapped into their seats, their bodies burned beyond recognition. Relatives of the victims, who had come to the airport to meet them, stood near the wreckage weeping. One survivor, who suffered burns on his face and hands, said it felt like a tyre burst after the plane landed. "There was a blast and plane was filled with smoke and there was total chaos," he told local media. By Saturday afternoon, rescuers had pulled 146 bodies from the wreckage. Eight other passengers had been rescued and were being treated in local hospitals, the airline said. Indian External Affairs Minister S. M. Krishna visited the injured in the hospital at Mangalore later on Saturday. In New Delhi, Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel addressed reporters following a meeting with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. He said the plane had been in contact with air traffic control prior to the crash and had not reported any problems. He added that the reason behind the crash would only be known after the high level inquiry which has been ordered by the Director General of Civil Aviation is completed. Earlier in New Delhi, M. Madhavan Nambiar, Secretary of India's Ministry of Aviation, M. Madhavan Nambiar, confirmed that the crash had happened around 0600 local time (0030 GMT) and that the plane had been just two years old and had an experienced pilot and co-pilot. He refused to speculate on whether the situation of the runway itself had been a contributory factor, saying that there had been more than 32-thousand safe landings on it since it came into operation in 2006. Indian Home Minister Palaniappan Chidambaram previously said the plane's pilot was a British citizen with more than 10-thousand hours of flying experience, including 26 landings at Mangalore. The Indian co-pilot had more than 3,750 hours of experience and 66 landings at Mangalore, he said. Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel said that conversations with the cockpit and other records showed the flight was operating normally before touchdown. Air India runs cheap flights under the Air India Express banner to Dubai and other Middle Eastern destinations where millions of Indian expatriate workers are employed. The crash was the deadliest in India since the November 1996 midair collision between a Saudi airliner and a Kazakh cargo plane near New Delhi that killed 349 people. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh expressed condolences and promised compensation for the families of the victims. Boeing said it was sending a team to aid in the investigation. Meanwhile, at Dubai International Airport, a special room was set up to assist relatives and friends of the passengers at Terminal 2, a hub for many budget and small airlines.

Ambulance driving away through crowd STORYLINE Relatives flooded into a hospital mortuary in Mangalore on Saturday to try to identify the bodies of the victims from the crash of an Air India Express plane that was carrying 166 people. Eight people escaped after the plane overshot a hilltop runway in southern India and plunged over a cliff, officials said. At least some of the survivors managed to jump from the wreckage just before it burst into flames. By Saturday night, rescuers had pulled 158 bodies from the wreckage. The eight survivors were being treated in hospitals, the airline said. Bereaved relatives waited their turn at the mortuary in Mangalore to identify the remains of their loved ones while volunteers pored over passenger lists. Bodies that were positively identified were wrapped up and taken away in ambulances. One man said he had identified five relatives on the flight from Dubai to the port city of Mangalore, and was still trying to find his uncle's remains. Firefighters struggled to reach the twisted, smoking wreckage of the Boeing 737-800, which was scattered along the hillside of thick grass and trees just outside Mangalore's Bajpe airport. But after the first few minutes, there were no more survivors to be found. Instead, scores of burned bodies were pulled from the blackened tangle of aircraft cables, twisted metal, charred trees and mud at the crash site. Many of the dead were strapped into their seats, their bodies burned beyond recognition. Air India, the country's national carrier, runs inexpensive flights under the Air India Express banner to Dubai and other Middle Eastern destinations where millions of Indians are employed. The plane was carrying 160 passengers - all Indian - and six crew members, an Air India official said. Four infants and 19 other children were among the passengers. The British pilot, who was of Serbian origin, and an Indian co-pilot were among the dead, officials said. The crash was the deadliest in India since the November 1996 midair collision between a Saudi airliner and a Kazakh cargo plane near New Delhi that killed 349 people.

Rana Ashraf talking on phone 9. Tilt down exterior Hanif Rajput Catering Services office STORYLINE A catering company executive who was among six men detained by Pakistan for allegedly helping the Times Square bombing suspect had differences with American policy in the region but no hatred toward the country, his father said on Saturday. Rana Ashraf Khan's son, Salman, was one of six suspects arrested by Pakistani authorities following the failed New York attack, although the timing of their detention remains unclear. Five of the men were picked up in the capital, Islamabad, a senior Pakistani intelligence official told The Associated Press. He spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the investigation. The official claimed that Salman Ashraf Khan - who co-owned the upscale Hanif Rajput Catering Service - had been recruited because two other suspects "wanted him to help bomb a big gathering of foreigners" whose event his company was catering for. Hanif Rajput Catering Service in Islamabad is popular among foreign embassies and many of Pakistan's wealthiest companies and individuals. In a statement on its website, the US embassy warned that the catering company was suspected of ties to insurgent groups and said American diplomats had been instructed to stop using it. But Khan's father on Saturday said he was baffled by the accusations, adding his son was a successful businessman who lived happily as a student in the US for four years. The younger Khan studied hotel management in Florida and computer science in Houston, returning to Pakistan in 2001 to take over the family business. His family reported him missing after he failed to turn up at his office on 10 May. A neighbour's guard saw a man drop off Khan's car at the family home about an hour after he left for work, then speed off in a taxi with several others, the father said. Like Faisal Shahzad, the Pakistani-American accused in the failed New York bombing, the six suspects held in Pakistan were all members of the country's so-called urban elite, some of them educated in the United States. But Khan's father said it was unlikely that his son had anything to do with Shahzad as he had been ""always more than preoccupied with his business for the last five to six years". "There might have been a chance he might have come across this guy...but having any connection with him - totally out of question," he added. He continued accusing the authorities of denying his son his legal rights. "Why they don't bring him in front of the court? Why don't they produce him? There has been no word from them. It is the 13th day, the family is going through its most terrible time," he said. The detainees are believed to be in the custody of Pakistani intelligence, which has been known to hold people for months - if not years - without trial. It cooperates closely with the CIA, which is often given access to detainees.

Now we may not always agree on every issue, but we should seek and seize opportunities such as this Expo, to build greater understanding between our peoples." 5. Wide of Clinton speaking on stage 6. Mid of attendees clapping 7. Mid of Clinton walking over to sculptures of pandas to pose for photographs with US Pavilion officials STORYLINE The United States and China should seek greater cooperation, the US Secretary of State told US and Chinese officials during a tour of the World Expo in Shanghai on Saturday. Speaking at a dinner in the US Pavilion, Hillary Rodham Clinton extolled the virtues of cooperation between the nations in a major charm offensive ahead of talks in Beijing on Sunday. "If our relations are defined by win-win solutions rather than zero-sum rivalries, we will thrive and prosper together," Clinton told the fifty or so US and Chinese officials and delegates. Clinton's tour of the US and Chinese Pavilions, seeking to strengthen US-Chinese ties, marks a major US push to win China's support for penalising its ally North Korea over the sinking of a South Korean warship. In Tokyo on Friday, Clinton said the evidence was "overwhelming" that North Korea was behind the sinking of the South Korean ship Cheonan in March, which killed 46 sailors, and demanded that the communist country must face international consequences. North Korea denies it was responsible and has threatened to retaliate against any attempt to punish it with "all-out war." On Sunday, Clinton will lead a delegation with US Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, for high-level US-Chinese talks in Beijing expected to be dominated by the South Korean ship incident. The second round of the so-called "Strategic and Economic Dialogue" was supposed to be the main thrust of Clinton's trip, but with the release of a report on Thursday blaming Pyongyang for sinking the South Korean vessel, Clinton's main task now is persuading China to support United Nations Security Council action against Pyongyang. China, North Korea's primary ally and financial supporter, has been neutral on the conclusions of the report that found Pyongyang responsible for firing a torpedo that sank the Cheonan. On Saturday, the UN Command's Military Armistice Commission, which oversees the 1953 Korean War truce agreement, said it would review the findings of the report and determine the scope of North Korea's armistice violation. Chinese officials have appealed for calm, calling the sinking "unfortunate," but they have stopped short of backing Seoul in the growing dispute, instead reiterating long-standing views on the need to maintain peace on the peninsula. As a veto-wielding permanent member of the Security Council, China's backing for any UN Security Council move will be key. US officials travelling with Clinton say she will push Chinese leaders to "acknowledge the reality" of what happened and support measures to convince the North to change its behaviour.

Various of pyrotechnics going off on stage 12. Santos and Garzon onstage with their wives, waving to audience STORYLINE Colombian presidential candidate Juan Manuel Santos closed his campaign on Friday night with a crowded gathering in a Bogota theatre where he pledged to continue with president Alvaro Uribe's work. Nine days ahead of the May 30th presidential elections, Colombia's former Defence Minister held the last act of his presidential campaign in El Campin theatre in front of five-thousand people. Well known Colombian musicians entertained the crowd who waved banners in support of the Partido de la U candidate. According to the most recent surveys, 58-year-old Santos regained the lead in the polls for the first round of voting with 35 percent of the vote intention. But his main contender, former Bogota mayor Antanas Mockus, from the Green Party, follows him extremely close with 34 percent. After Mockus' popularity skyrocketed over a month ago, Santos, who as Uribe's political heir had always been the favourite to win the election, had to change his strategy. "We are going to vote for continuity, to move forward, to strengthen what president Uribe left us, so all Colombians, we get a job, that's what we need, more and more jobs," he said. Santos pledged to continue Uribe's path and to work towards strengthening the economy, seen as one of Uribe's great achievements, but softened his tone when he referred to his political opponents, inside and outside the country. "I don't see enemies in my political adversaries, nor in foreign government. Ideological differences cannot divide us. Our enemies and common enemies, and you know them well, my enemy is unemployment, my enemy is poverty, my enemy is corruption," he said. The former Defence Minister is well known for his non-diplomatic manners and his promptness to sharply react to any criticism. None of them, Santos or Mockus who is closing his campaign on Sunday, seem to have a chance to win in the first round where 50 percent of the votes are necessary. Polls indicate that they will have to go to the run-off round on June 20th.

Hundreds of thousands of people gathered at the imposing 9 de Julio (9 of July) Avenue to watch the parade, despite the threat of rain due to grey clouds over the capital. Five thousand soldiers and members of the state's security forces took part in the parade. Only once before in almost 30 years, during Carlos Menem's presidency, has the army paraded in the streets of the capital. Numerous activities to celebrate the bicentenary of Argentina's independence have been scheduled in the upcoming days. The 9 of July Avenue, stage to most of them, has been closed to traffic since Friday night and it will be closed until Tuesday. Stalls representing the Argentinean provinces have been set along the avenue to display to visitors the history, charms and peculiarities of each one.

Mid shot road policeman in the street 17. Wide of traffic on street, vehicle with lights and siren driving away in far lane STORYLINE About 200 people protested in Moscow on Saturday against special flashing blue lights used by officials to get around traffic rules. The protesters wore blue buckets and cups on their heads in imitation of the blue lights, called migalki, that the drivers for VIPs attach to their cars allowing them to ignore traffic rules so they can get to meetings on time. Participants at previous protests have been detained by police but Saturday's event was peaceful. For the protesters, the lights have come to symbolise Russia's elite because they allow the officials to escape the chronic traffic congestion on Moscow's road network. Regular car owners have previously held flashmob protests against the use of the lights and have put blue buckets on their cars to imitate them. Muscovites are all too accustomed to seeing luxury sedans driving in the opposite lane to escape gridlock. The cars often have flashing blue lights, issued mainly to government officials. In one incident in March, a black Mercedes with a flashing blue light on the roof and a VIP inside collided head-on with a little hatchback, killing the two women in the car. The VIP - a vice president of Lukoil, Russia's largest private oil company - left in another car, and police blamed the hatchback for swerving into oncoming traffic. Some of the strongest support for the dead women came from civic organisations formed to defend the rights of drivers.

Jardinero snore a bit. Snore! Snore!" (animal with eyes closed can be heard snoring) STORYLINE The Cuban town of Vinales, set in a lush green valley 200 kilometres west of Havana, is known for its beautiful karst scenery and tobacco leaf farms as well as trained livestock that can entertain foreign tourists. Most of the town's inhabitants make their living attending to the visitors. That includes Tomas, a water buffalo who on one particular morning was taking his usual shower before heading off to work. The guy with the garden hose is his trainer, 31-year-old Javier Pimentel. People come from miles around to see 14-year-old Tomas perform. His isn't some amazing acrobatic act or life-risking stunt show. Tomas simply listens. Tourists mount his saddle and he takes them for a short stroll around a local park while while obeying verbal commands from Pimentel. "Turn right", says Javier, and there goes Tomas. "A little to the left", and Tomas adjusts. "Stop!", says Javier and Tomas stops flat in his tracks. Certainly not your usual water buffalo behaviour. Especially when he's asked to take just one or two steps forward and he does just that without overstepping his bounds. Tomas is the only known water buffalo on the Caribbean island trained like a domesticated pet. Pimentel and Tomas have been a staple of the Vinales tourist trade for years. Pimentel trained Tomas when the Asian water buffalo was just two years old. They have been working together for 12 years now. "A family picture at my house is not a picture if it's without Tomas," said Javier. This particular species of buffalo was introduced to Cuba back in the 1980s to replenish a dwindling heard of cattle, but Pimentel said most people are afraid of the breed and somewhat cautious of their large horns and therefore unwilling to work with them. Day after day, Javier and Tomas leave their home and head to the park one kilometre (about half a mile) away to await the tourists. Pimentel charges the equivalent of about 1 US dollar for a ride on Tomas' back. Business isn't bad for the duo although tourism in the area has dropped a bit. But there's always competition. Meet Jardinero, a 17-year-old white ox who's also peddling his act with visiting tourists. Jardinero and his trainer, Alejandro Perez, have been together for 14 years and performing in Vinales for the past 8 years. Perez said he's uneducated, having dropped out of school after the fifth grade, but said he has an extraordinary knack at communicating with Jardinero. Jardinero's act is the opposite of Pimentel's: Jardinero gets paid to sleep and snore. People come from afar to see how this enormous beast is told to lay down, go to sleep, and snore. The pair don't charge a set price but they do accept tips.

People paying respects at grave, tilt down to view of grave STORYLINE Nicolaus Copernicus, the 16th-century astronomer whose findings were condemned by the Roman Catholic Church as heretical, was reburied by Polish priests as a hero on Saturday, nearly 5-hundred years after he was laid to rest in an unmarked grave. His burial in a tomb in the cathedral where he once served as a church canon and doctor indicates how far the church has come in making peace with the scientist whose revolutionary theory that the Earth revolves around the Sun helped usher in the modern scientific age. Copernicus, who lived from 1473 to 1543, died as a little-known astronomer working in what is now Poland, far from Europe's centres of learning. He had spent years labouring in his free time developing his theory, which was later condemned as heretical by the church because it removed Earth and humanity from their central position in the universe. His revolutionary model was based on complex mathematical calculations and his naked-eye observations of the heavens because the telescope had not yet been invented. After his death, his remains rested in an unmarked grave beneath the floor of the cathedral in Frombork, northern Poland, the exact location unknown. On Saturday, his remains were blessed with holy water by some of Poland's highest-ranking clerics before an honour guard ceremoniously carried the coffin through the imposing red brick cathedral and lowered it back into the same spot where part of his skull and other bones were found in 2005. A black granite tombstone now identifies him as the founder of the heliocentric theory, but also a church canon, a cleric that ranks below a priest. The tombstone is decorated with a model of the solar system, a golden sun encircled by six of the planets. At the urging of a local bishop, scientists began searching in 2004 for the astronomer's remains and eventually turned up a skull and bones of a 70-year-old man - the age Copernicus was when he died. A reconstruction made by forensic police based on the skull showed a broken nose and other features that resemble a self-portrait of Copernicus. In a later stage of the investigation, DNA taken from teeth and bones matched that from hairs found in one of his books, leading the scientists to conclude with great probability that they had finally found Copernicus. In recent weeks, a wooden casket holding those remains has lain in state in the nearby city of Olsztyn, and on Friday they were toured around the region to towns linked to his life. The pageantry comes 18 years after the Vatican rehabilitated the Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei, who was persecuted in the Inquisition for carrying the Copernican Revolution forward. Saturday's Mass was led by Jozef Kowalczyk, the papal nuncio and newly named Primate of Poland, the highest church authority in this deeply Catholic country. Poland also is the homeland of John Paul II, the late pope who said in 1992 that the church was wrong in condemning Galileo's work. Copernicus' burial in an anonymous grave in the 16th century was not linked to suspicions of heresy. Copernicus' major treatise - "On the Revolutions of the Heavenly Spheres" - was published at the very end of his life, and he only received a copy of the printed book on the day he died - 21 May 1543.

Workers raking oil from sand STORYLINE: The gooey oil washing into the maze of marshes along the Gulf Coast could prove impossible to remove, leaving a toxic stew lethal to fish and wildlife, government officials and independent scientists said. Officials are considering some drastic and risky solutions: They could set the wetlands on fire or flood areas in hopes of floating out the oil. The only viable option for many impacted areas is to do nothing and let nature break down the spill. More than 50 miles of Louisiana's delicate shoreline already have been soiled by the massive slick unleashed after the Deepwater Horizon rig burned and sank last month. Officials fear oil eventually could invade wetlands and beaches from Texas to Florida. Louisiana is expected to be hit hardest. Oil that has rolled into shoreline wetlands coats the stalks and leaves of plants such as roseau cane, the fabric that holds together an ecosystem that is essential to the region's fishing industry and a much-needed buffer against Gulf hurricanes. Soon, oil will smother those plants and choke off their supply of air and nutrients. In some eddies and protected inlets, the ochre-coloured crude has pooled beneath the water's surface, forming clumps several inches deep. With the seafloor leak still gushing at least hundreds of thousands of gallons a day, the damage is only getting worse. Coast Guard officials said the spill's impact now stretches across a 150-mile swath, from Dauphin Island, Alabama to Grand Isle, Louisiana. Anger was growing along the US Gulf Coast on Saturday, with many wondering how to clean up the monthlong mess - especially now that BP's latest try to plug the blown-out well won't happen until at least Tuesday. "We're going to ask the national government, the federal government to step in and take over this operation from BP because BP is not putting the resources in place to stop this horrible environmental tragedy from occurring," said Deano Bonano, the Homeland Security Chief for Jefferson Parish, which stretches from the New Orleans metropolitan area to the coast. The oil has forced officials to close a public beach on Grand Isle, south of New Orleans, as globs of crude that resembled melted chocolate washed up. Others have questioned why BP PLC was still in charge of the response. "We're tired of being told that resources are available and doing the job, and they don't ever show up. Quite frankly, we're getting to point where we think we're being lied to," said Bonano. After the 1989 Exxon Valdez spill in Alaska, Congress dictated that oil companies be responsible for dealing with major accidents - including paying for all cleanup - with oversight by federal agencies. BP, which is in charge of the cleanup, said it will be at least Tuesday before engineers can shoot mud into the blown-out well at the bottom of the Gulf, yet another delay in the effort to stop the oil. A so-called "top kill" has been tried on land but never 5,000 feet (1,500 metres) underwater, so scientists and engineers have spent the past week preparing and taking measurements to make sure it will stop the oil that has been spewing into the sea for a month. They originally hoped to try it as early as this weekend. Crews will shoot heavy mud into a crippled piece of equipment atop the well, which started spewing after the drilling rig Deepwater Horizon exploded April 20 off the coast of Louisiana, killing 11 workers. Then engineers will direct cement at the well to permanently stop the oil. BP, which was leasing the rig and is responsible for the cleanup, has tried and failed several times to halt the oil. Chief Operating Officer Doug Suttles said Friday that a mile-long (1.6-kilometre-long) tube inserted into the leaking pipe is sucking about 92,400 gallons (350,000 litres) of oil a day to the surface, a figure much lower than the 210,000 gallons (795,000 litres) a day the company said the tube was sucking up Thursday. Suttles said the higher number is the most the tube has been sucking up at any one time, while the lower number is the average. Even under the most conservative estimate, about 6 (m) million gallons (22.7 million litres) have leaked so far, more than half the amount spilled by the Exxon Valdez. The month-old oil disaster has unleashed a gusher of congressional hearings that may prove nearly as hard to cap as the blown BP well. On Saturday, the blossoming investigation into the spill progressed when President Barack Obama announced that former Florida Senator Bob Graham and former EPA Administrator William K. Reilly will lead a presidential commission probing the spill. In an election year rife with political posturing, the spill is proving an easy target for lawmakers, whose fears of being swept out of office by an anti-incumbent wave were reinforced by Tuesday's batch of primaries. One Republican senator said there would be plenty of time later for hearings into the Gulf oil spill. As he criticised Democrats for holding hearings, David Vitter of Louisiana said the focus now should be on stopping the oil flow and protecting the coastline. He spoke in his party's weekly address. Public interest in the spill is high - after lawmakers pressed BP for a live video feed of the leak this week, so many people tried to view it that they crashed the government Web site where it was posted. BP executives say the only guaranteed solution to stop the leak is a pair of relief wells crews have already started drilling, but the work will not be complete for at least two months. That makes the stakes even higher for the top kill. BP is also developing several other plans in case the top kill doesn't work, including an effort to shoot knotted rope, pieces of tyre and other material - known as a junk shot - to plug the blowout preventer, which was meant to shut off the oil in case of an accident but did not work.

Aerial of cameras filming men with banner outside courthouse STORYLINE: Security was tight at a federal courthouse in Detroit, Michigan, on Friday as a young Nigerian man arrived for his arraignment on charges that he tried to blow up a packed US jetliner on Christmas Day. Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab has been indicted by a grand jury on six charges, including attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction aboard Detroit-bound Northwest Airlines Flight 253. Conviction carries up to a life in prison. A dark Chevy Suburban drove into an underground entrance to the downtown courthouse about 10:40 a.m. (1540 GMT). The US Marshals Service says Abdulmutallab was inside the sport utility vehicle. Outside the courthouse, authorities set up metal barricades outside the courthouse and limited foot traffic in the area. Experts say that with so much evidence stacked against Abdulmutallab, his defence team has been left with few options as the case moves forward. According to the government, Abdulmutallab tried to blow up an Amsterdam-to-Detroit flight by igniting an explosive under his clothes. The FBI says Abdulmutallab tried to detonate it with a syringe of chemicals. Outside the courthouse, two men unfurled a banner reading: "Not in the name of Islam." There is a large Muslim population living in and around Detroit. Abdulmutallab's defence was being handled by Detroit federal defenders including the head of the office, Miriam Siefer, a highly regarded lawyer. But Abdulmutallab's lawyers didn't get the case until he was charged the day after the failed attack. By then he had talked to investigators about training with al-Qaida operatives in Yemen. With the syringe, the fire, explosive material, burns and other evidence, some lawyers are saying this is a "classic smoking gun" case.

Wide of old market, traffic and pedestrians STORYLINE: Yemen's leaders have insisted that they will not accept any direct intervention by US combat troops in the fight against al-Qaida, and this sentiment was echoed by its citizens on Friday. In the past week, Yemen has beefed up its ground forces in several provinces, setting up checkpoints and carrying out searches, particularly north of the capital San'a where it's hunting for the leader of a cell believed to have plotted attacks on the US and other embassies in San'a. Hundreds of al-Qaida fighters are believed to be operating in Yemen, many finding refuge with tribes disgruntled with the central government. Washington and San'a are still feeling out how far they can go in their newly intensified partnership against al-Qaida, whose fighters have dug roots into the mountains of this impoverished Arab nation and now, the US administration says, present a global threat. But following Friday prayers, San'a resident Ahmed Shawky, said: "We will not accept any foreign intervention, whether it is American or international. We, the Yemeni, will defend our country." On Thursday, Yemen provided the most comprehensive account yet of contacts between al-Qaida and a Nigerian man accused of trying to blow up a US airliner, saying he may have met with a radical US-born cleric. Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who was tackled by a passenger on board a packed US jetliner on Christmas Day as flames shot from his clothes, has told investigators about training with al-Qaida operatives in Yemen. Abdulmutallab came to Yemen in August, ostensibly to study Arabic at a San'a language institute where he previously studied from 2004-2005. But he disappeared in September, and his whereabouts were unknown until he left the country on December 4. US President Barack Obama has called him a "suspected terrorist" and an al-Qaida branch has taken responsibility. Abdulmutallab is due in US federal court on Friday for his arraignment on charges that he failed to detonate a chemical-laden explosive on the Detroit-bound Northwest Airlines flight. On Sunday, Obama's counter-terrorism adviser said Abdulmutallab would be offered a plea deal in exchange for valuable information about his contacts in Yemen and elsewhere. San'a resident Hussein Aly said on Friday that Abdulmutallab's actions would not affect Yemen. "We do not accept any foreigner coming to our country to commit terrorist acts. We love our country," said Aly. The weak central government in Yemen has little control outside the capital and is burdened with crises, including a war in the north with Shiite rebels and frequent deadly clashes with separatists in the south, which was once independent.

Defne Bayrak, the wife of bomber Humam Khalil Abu-Mulal al-Balawi, said in an interview with The Associated Press that hatred of the United States had motivated her husband to sacrifice his life on December 30 in what he regarded as a holy war against the US. "My husband was in a struggle against America," she said during the interview at an Istanbul park. "I think the war against America must go on. We must oppose it (US) as it tries to put the entire world under its sovereignty." Turkish police questioned and released Bayrak on Thursday. She said her husband had "no friends," and only spent time with his family in Jordan. But she said he was an outspoken critic of the United States on Jihad Web sites. "He never digested the US invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq," she said. "He was very disturbed. For example he was outraged over news that our sisters were raped at Abu Ghraib. He was constantly expressing his anger about the invasion of Muslim lands." Asked whether she was angry at him for abandoning her with two young daughters, 5-year-old Lina and 7-year-old Leyla, she said: "I can fully understand him, for us the meaning of life is not only this world. God willing, we will be united in the afterlife." Humam Khalil Abu-Mulal al-Balawi killed seven CIA employees at a base in Afghanistan on December 30. Jordanian intelligence officials have said they believed the devout 32-year-old doctor had been persuaded to support US efforts against al-Qaida in Afghanistan. They say al-Balawi was recruited to help capture or kill Ayman al-Zawahri, a doctor from Egypt who is bin Laden's right-hand man, according to a counterterrorism official based in the Middle East. Bayrak has denied that her husband had been recruited to work for the CIA. A federal law enforcement official said the bomber entered the base by car and detonated a powerful explosive just outside the base's gym, where CIA operatives and others had gathered. It was unclear whether the explosives were hidden in a suicide vest or belt, but they set off a "significant blast," said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the investigation.

Various of Karroubi's website Sahamnews with news on armed pro-government demonstrators opening fire on Karroubi's car STORYLINE Armed pro-government demonstrators opened fire on the car of an Iranian opposition leader shattering its windows, his Web site reported on Friday. Sahamnews said the shooting happened late on Thursday while former presidential candidate Mahdi Karroubi was leaving a building in Qazvin, some 90 miles (140 kilometres) west of Tehran. The report added that some 500 hardliners had been demonstrating outside the building where he was staying since the day before. The site described the demonstrators as armed pro-government paramilitary Basij forces and said police were unable to disperse them. The website said the crowd were chanting "We sacrifice our blood for our supreme leader." The shooting represents a rare armed attack on an opposition figure. In 1999, pro-reform politician Saeed Hajjarian was shot in the face, paralyzing him. The attack is an indication of the political turmoil rocking the country. Karroubi's car was earlier attacked by a mob wielding bricks in late December, just days after a harsh crackdown on opposition protests. At least eight people died in clashes between security forces and opposition supporters last month in one of the worst bloodsheds since the unrest following the disputed June re-election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Since then death threats against opposition leaders have been on the rise. In a state arranged demonstration in late December protesters called for Karroubi's execution and that of fellow opposition leader, Mir Hossein Mousavi. On Friday, the senior cleric Kazem Sedighi leading Friday prayers in the capital appeared to be giving a green light for hardliners to take matters into their own hands against the opposition figures, if authorities didn't act. "I am concerned that people will lose patience if the legal apparatus does not conduct its affairs in a timely manner," he said, while admonishing that acts of extremism would be against the wishes of the supreme leader. Sedighi also claimed that some of the 500 protesters arrested around the Shiite holy day of Ashoura December 27 were intoxicated. Opposition members have on several occasions since the June election poured into the streets to protest the results. The opposition says more than 80 protesters have been killed in the post election crackdown, but the government puts the number of confirmed dead at less than 40.

Various of funeral procession of third Palestinian man killed, mourners holding Islamic Jihad flags STORYLINE Hundreds of mourners gathered on Friday in Rafah for the funerals of three Palestinian men killed in overnight Israeli airstrikes against smuggling tunnels along the Gaza-Egypt border. The Israeli strikes came in retaliation for a rocket and mortar barrage launched into Israel on Thursday. Two of the men that were killed were identified as members of Hamas and the third was a member of the Islamic Jihad faction. Dozens of Palestinians have died in collapses and strikes against the tunnels, which are used to bring everything from cigarettes and chocolate to livestock and weapons into the impoverished, blockaded territory. Israel and Egypt imposed the blockade to weaken Gaza's rulers, Hamas, who seized power there in 2007. Israel's military said that in addition to the smuggling tunnels, its aircraft also targeted a weapons manufacturing facility and another tunnel meant to allow militants to sneak into Israel for an attack. In a statement, the military said Israel would not tolerate the "firing of rockets by terrorist organisations at Israel." The statement said that Israel would continue to respond against any attempt to disrupt the "calm in Israel's southern communities." Israel has developed an anti-rocket system, dubbed Iron Dome, which is slated to be deployed along the Gaza border later this year and could neutralise the crude rockets that have become the Gaza militants' most effective weapon. Egypt has also begun building an anti-tunnel barrier along its border with Gaza, potentially ending Hamas' supply of cash and weapons. Together, the two moves by Gaza's neighbours could soon change the strategic equation in and around the territory. Violence in Gaza has dropped but not ceased since Israel's devastating offensive in the territory a year ago.

Truck entering salt mine STORYLINE Severe winter weather continued to cause havoc across large parts of Europe on Friday, although the conditions have created a boom time for some businesses. The European cold snap saw snow clog roads and airports on Friday, knock out electricity and close schools. In France, snow piled up from Normandy to Marseille on the Mediterranean shore. Skis became a popular mode of transport in the Normandy town of Alencon, while the top official in France's Drome region urged residents to stay home. Some truck drivers perhaps wished they had, as they were left to battle icy roads and long delays. Snowstorms also cut electricity to thousands of homes, according to Electricite de France. Meanwhile, at Berlin Zoo, African antelopes appeared to be coping well with the freezing conditions. "They are still allowed to go out for periods of time. In principle, all our animals go outside for shorter periods of time. Even the elephants have been out, but only for an hour," said Berlin Zoo curator, Regner Kuehne. Children across the German capital were also out and about - many of them on sleds. Sledging has proved such a popular pastime in recent days that shops are starting to run out of stock. "Yes we had to re-order (sleds) but it does not have any effect because the supplies are out. There are no deliveries to Berlin anymore said our supplier - and our supplier is a big one," said hardware shop manager, Sylvia Wesolowski. Manufacturers of all types of snow-slipping vehicles, from traditional wooden-runner sleds to plastic bobsleds with breaks are thrilled at the boom after years of fearing they had become victims of global warming. Another product in great demand across Europe is road salt. The Klodawa Salt Mine in central Poland has stopped taking new orders because supplies are so low. "The need for salt in this period is very high and the producers aren't able to provide as much salt as is needed on the roads," said Klodawa Salt Mine board member, Marek Skrzypczak. Europe's low temperatures, prompted by an Arctic weather system, are set to continue through the weekend.

During the training on Friday, the special warfare forces practiced physical training and gymnastics as well as swimming in the cold water to adapt themselves to severe weather conditions. According to Korea's Yonhap news agency, more than 200 rangers participated in the winter drill in minus 30 degrees weather to build shelters in the snow and penetrate into mountains. The manoeuvre also included rangers skiing, a vital transport system in severe weather condition. The commander of a patrol team in Special Forces, Hwang Jin-ha, who participated in the training said the South Korean rangers were ready to "beat the enemy." According to the commander, the winter drill which is held every year has been designed to improve the ability of the Special Forces in extreme weather situations. South Korea conducts annual joint military drills with the United States as well. North Korea has routinely condemned the annual manoeuvres, saying they are preparations for an invasion of the communist country, while South Korea and the US have characterised them as purely defensive.

Various of audience singing Happy Birthday to mark 75th anniversary of birth 22. Elvis lookalike claps and applauds STORYLINE: Elvis Presley lookalikes from across Europe converged at a hotel in the English seaside town of Blackpool on Friday to take part in the European Elvis championships. The three-day event was for professional singers who make their living from impersonating the King of rock and roll. It has attracted dozens of contenders including a number from Germany. Jonny Sunrise, aged 42, was a body builder from Munich before becoming a professional Elvis performer three years ago. As he prepared to go on stage, Sunrise said Elvis was still alive in the hearts of people around the world. Outside the hotel hall, Elvis impersonators gathered in the foyer to swap stories and compliment each other on their costumes. Another German Elvis, Guido Elvoice from Bremen, who sported an Elvis tattoo on his chest, said it was like a religion for him. One contender came all the way from New Zealand to take part in the event. Other Elvises toured stalls selling Elvis memorabilia, including 3,000 pound (4,806 US dollar) jumpsuits made by the same company that designed Presley's original costumes. Also at hand was Presley's official photographer and tour manager from the 1970s, Ed Bonja. The contest was halted briefly so contenders and audience members could sing Happy Birthday to mark the 75th anniversary of Presley's birth.

SOUNDBITE (English) Jack Brockbank, Guinness World Records adjudicator: "It therefore gives me great pleasure to award the new Guiness World Record." 19. Brockbank awarding the record STORYLINE: Israel on Friday took the upper hand in a new kind of Mideast conflict - one involving chickpeas - via it's minority Arab population. Using a satellite dish on loan from a nearby broadcast station, cooks in an Arab town near Jerusalem whipped up more than four metric tons of hummus, the chickpea paste that is a staple for many in the Middle East. The cooks doubled the previous record for the world's biggest serving of hummus, set in October by cooks in Lebanon. That record broke an earlier Israeli record and briefly put Lebanon ahead. Hundreds of jubilant Israelis, a mix of Arabs and Jews, gathered around the giant dish in the town of Abu Ghosh on Friday, many of them dancing as a singer performed an Arabic love song to the beige chickpea paste. Just after midday, an adjudicator sent from London by Guinness World Records, Jack Brockbank, confirmed that the Israeli chefs now held the record. He put the exact amount of hummus in the giant dish at 9,017 pounds (4,090 kilograms). Lebanon and Israel have officially been at war for six decades. Three months ago, when the Lebanese chefs prepared their record-breaking dish, they called it a move to reaffirm ownership of a Lebanese food they claimed had been appropriated by Israelis. The driving force behind the Israeli hummus dish, Jawdat Ibrahim, an Israeli Arab restaurateur who became a millionaire after winning a lottery in the US, played down the conflict, saying "competition is a healthy thing." "Today we have the hummus, and hopefully we will have the talks for peace in our region," he said. The hummus "war" has been simmering for some time. In 2008, a group of Lebanese businessmen announced plans to sue Israel to stop it from marketing hummus and other regional dishes as Israeli. "It is not enough they are stealing our land. They are also stealing our civilisation and our cuisine," said one of the businessman, Fadi Abboud. Many in the Arab world see Israel as a colonial, Western implant in the region, though a number of Israel's population is of Middle Eastern and North African descent. The chefs responsible for Friday's record were from the country's one-fifth Arab minority. Israel has launched two ruinous wars against Lebanon - and occupied the south of the nation in a self-proclaimed security zone for some 20 years - in 1982 and in 2006. Both wars resulted in widespread bloodshed and devastation in Lebanon and helped give birth to and sustain Hezbollah as a militant Lebanese resistance group. On Friday, a newscaster on Israel's Army Radio flippantly referred to the hummus clash as the "third Lebanon war".

Various of Alhegelan and Al Neyadi posing for pictures in front of tower STORYLINE: Two sky divers leaped off the world's tallest building on Friday, setting a new record for the highest ever base jump from a man made structure. The two base jumping enthusiasts, Nasser Al Neyadi, and Omar Alhegelan, descended 672 metres (2020 feet) from a platform near the top of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. The distance was covered with 10 seconds of freefall followed by a 30-40 second parachute flight. Both jumpers landed safely. Nasser is the 2007 Accuracy Sky Diving UAE national champion and Omar has previously jumped from the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur as well as holding multiple world and US skydiving titles. The pair previously set another world record when they jumped from 29,500ft on Mount Everest. Dubai opened the world's tallest skyscraper on Monday, and in a surprise move renamed the gleaming glass-and-metal tower Burj Khalifa in a nod to the leader of neighbouring Abu Dhabi - the oil-rich sheikdom which came to its rescue during the financial meltdown. The developer of the newly opened tower said it cost about 1.5 (b) billion US dollars to build the tapering metal-and-glass spire billed as a "vertical city" of luxury apartments and offices. It boasts four swimming pools, a private library and a hotel designed by Giorgio Armani. The Burj's developers say they are confident in the safety of the tower, which is more than twice the height of New York's Empire State Building's roof. The tower is 1,000 feet (305 meters) higher than the skyscraper known as Taipei 101 in Taiwan, which at 1,667 feet (508 meters) had been the world's tallest since 2004.

Wide of news conference ending STORYLINE Suicide bombers attacked in the heart of Kabul on Friday, triggering a series of explosions and gunbattles that police and witnesses said killed at least 17 people in an area of residential hotels rented by Indian embassy workers and other foreigners. An Afghan Interior Ministry spokesman, Zemari Bashari later put the number of dead from the attacks at 16, although no immediate explanation was available for the discrepancy in the figures. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the blasts, saying five suicide bombers struck, although police said there were just three people involved. "According to our preliminary investigations it shows that there were two suicide attackers and one guy was supporting them. The suicide attackers blew themselves up and we killed the third attacker," said Afghan police chief, General Abdul Rahman Rahman. Police said Indian nationals were among those killed in the blasts. Head of criminal investigation, Abdul Ghafar Sayedzada said three of the dead were police officers and most of the civilians killed were Indians. Bashari also confirmed the death of one Italian citizen among the foreigners who have been killed. "During the operation, an Italian national bravely helped the Afghan police in order to kill the terrorists who had entered the Guesthouse, unfortunately this Italian national was also killed and has sacrificed his life," Bashari said. Italian Foreign Minister, Franco Frattini also confirmed that an Italian diplomat who had been staying in one of the hotels targeted by bombers was among the dead. He said the diplomat had worked at the Italian Embassy as a diplomatic counsellor to the premier's office. Afghan President Hamid Karzai condemned suicide attacks saying the strikes won't hurt Afghan-Indian relations. India is among the largest economic donors to Afghanistan apart from countries that have sent troops to the NATO-led mission. India is seeking regional allies and access to oil- and gas-rich central Asia. But India's growing role here is strongly opposed by Pakistan, which wants a friendly government without ties to its archrival, and by the Taliban because of Indian links to rival ethnic communities here. Karzai expressed his sadness to the people and government of India, and sent his condolences to the families of those killed and wounded. He said Afghan officials were investigating the incident and who is behind it. The targets included two residential hotels. A car bomb flattened the Hamid Guesthouse and assailants also attacked the nearby Park Residence, Kabul police chief said. An Associated Press reporter saw police carry seven bodies from the Park Residence. The explosions woke up residents near the Kabul City Center, a nine-story shopping area that includes the four-star Safi Landmark Hotel. Witnesses said one explosion created a crater about 3 feet (1 meter) wide and windows of the nearby Safi hotel were blown out. A large plume of black smoke rose from the area. Shattered glass littered the streets, which were mostly emptied because it was the first day of the Afghan weekend. Afghan police, armed with Kalashnikov rifles, crouched behind traffic barriers with guns ready as a light rain fell and shots sounded from multiple sides. More than two hours after the first explosion, gunfire continued to ring out around one of the guesthouses. The attacks come as thousands of US, Afghan and NATO soldiers were in their second week of a major offensive against a Taliban stronghold in the town of Marjah in southern Afghanistan. It was the first attack in the Afghan capital since January 18, when teams of suicide bombers and gunmen targeted government buildings, leaving 12 dead, including seven attackers.

Various of voting STORYLINE Germany's plan to send up to 850 extra troops to Afghanistan cleared its final hurdle on Friday when parliament gave it strong backing. Lawmakers voted 429-111, with 46 abstentions, to increase the maximum number of German troops serving in Afghanistan to 5,350 from 4,500. Under the government plan announced last month, Berlin will send 500 extra troops to Afghanistan and focus more on training local forces. The new mandate, valid for a year, allows for another 350 soldiers to be deployed as a "flexible reserve" - for example helping secure elections. Parliamentary approval is required for German deployments abroad. Germany currently has 4,340 troops in northern Afghanistan. It hopes to start reducing its contingent next year and complete handing over security responsibilities to Afghan authorities in 2014, but isn't setting a specific withdrawal date. At least part of the biggest opposition party, the centre-left Social Democrats, supported the plan as a route toward an eventual pullout. The deployment is unpopular at home. A German-ordered airstrike near Kunduz last September in which civilians died has coloured recent discussion of it. A parliamentary committee is investigating the strike, which Defence Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg has said was "militarily inappropriate." "Germany is involved in a war against the ordinary population in Afghanistan," Christine Buchholz of the opposition Left Party said during Friday's debate. Lawmakers with the Left Party, which advocates an immediate withdrawal, held up placards with names of the Kunduz attack victims. That prompted speaker Norbert Lammert to order them out of the chamber for violating parliamentary rules. Friday's vote came a week after the neighbouring Netherlands' government collapsed over a plan to keep its 2,000-strong contingent from going home this year.

Wide pull out from snow on trees to frozen pond in park STORYLINE: New Yorkers woke up on Friday morning with 17 inches (43 centimetres) of snow on the ground and another 12 to 15 inches (30 - 38 centimetres) of snow expected over the weekend. A man was killed by a falling snow-laden tree branch in Central Park, one of at least three deaths being blamed on the storm. Overnight, the city mobilised over four thousand workers to run split shifts to keep the snow removal effort going until clean up is complete. Some 16-hundred ploughs are out on the streets of New York City. The city has also hired private contractors with heavy equipment to help move the snow from Staten Island and the Bronx. On Friday morning, the public school system of New York City was ordered closed for a snow day. That's the second snow day in a month and the fourth over the past six years. Mayor Michael Bloomberg was reluctant to close the nation's largest school system because of the economic impact many parents suffer when they can't go to work because of childcare issues. Ever one to put a smile on an otherwise grim situation, Bloomberg noted that the weekend might be a great time to find tickets to a Broadway show. In the New York suburbs west of New York City, conditions continue to deteriorate. New Jersey Transit cancelled all buses in the northern half of the state, including those that take workers to New York. Government offices in New Jersey were opening two hours late. Homeowners were out early with shovels and snowblowers in an attempt to get ahead of the storm. Others were resigned to the snow and simply planned to spend the day admiring Mother Nature's work. Snow is expected to continue falling throughout the New York metropolitan region throughout the weekend as the storm appears to stall just off Long Island, delivering band after band of snow.

Mid of traffic STORYLINE Turkey's prime minister vowed on Friday to put everyone who conspired against the country's democracy on trial, as the number of military officers charged and jailed for allegedly plotting a 2003 coup against his Islamic-based government rose to 31. The number includes seven admirals and four generals and it represents the largest-ever crackdown on Turkey's military, which has ousted four civilian governments since 1960. In a new nationwide sweep on Friday, police detained 18 more officers, all but one of whom are still on active duty, television stations said. The officers were detained in 13 different cities and were being transferred to Istanbul, the reports said. It brings the total of officers detained this week to 67. The military has wielded strong influence on politics for decades, but has seen its powers dramatically curtailed by Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's government, which took steps to put the military under civilian rule. "Those conspiring behind closed doors to trample on the nation's will from now on will find themselves facing justice," Erdogan told lawmakers at a televised meeting. The probe has fuelled tensions between the government and the fiercely secular military and shaken the markets, but Erdogan has dismissed calls by opposition parties for early elections. Deputy Prime Minister Cemil Cicek stressed the need to overhaul the Constitution, a legacy of the 1980 military coup, to elevate democratic standards to the level of the European Union in an effort to boost Turkey's membership bid. Erdogan, President Abdullah Gul and military chief General Ilker Basbug held a rare meeting on Thursday, later issuing a joint statement seeking to ease tensions. The 11 most recently charged officers included two active-duty admirals and one retired general. The court's decision to jail them came after prosecutors late on Thursday released the former chiefs of the navy and air force and another top general without immediately charging them, saying they were unlikely to flee. On Friday morning, police escorted more officers to the court for questioning, including General Cetin Dogan, the former chief of the 1st Army based in Istanbul and General Engin Alan, former head of the Special Forces. All suspects have reportedly denied the allegations, which include plotting to blow up mosques and kill some non-Muslim figures to foment chaos and trigger a military takeover. Wiretap evidence and the discovery of alleged plans for a military coup prompted this week's detentions. The recordings published on leading Web sites were allegedly conversations between ranking commanders at a military unit under Dogan's command in Istanbul. Alan is best known for supervising the transfer of imprisoned Kurdish rebel chief Abdullah Ocalan from Kenya to Turkey after his capture there in 1999. He is a highly respected commander within the military for his role in the fight against autonomy-seeking Kurdish guerrillas. Opposition leaders claim the coup probe is tinged by politics, a charge the government rejects. It is widely believed that General Hilmi Ozkok, then head of the military, did not back his subordinates. He has not been implicated in the alleged plot.

Its not about the religious dimension to any of this it's about the the political dimension." 16. Mid Fayyad leaving 17. Mid of convoy of vehicles leaving area STORYLINE Palestinians clashed on Friday with Israeli soldiers in the west bank town of Hebron, during a protest over a controversial decision by the Israeli government to declare the town's cave of patriarchs as a national heritage site. Earlier in the day security was tight in Hebron as Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad attended Friday prayers at the disputed site in the West Bank town. "The political dimension of this decision as our people understood it, as I understand it, its effectively to consider precisely where we are standing now, a few metres from the al-Ibrahimi mosque as part of the state of Israel - it isn't. Our people are unified in saying no to that," he told media before leaving Hebron after Friday prayers. Palestinians have been protesting in Hebron since Israel declared on Sunday that it would add the town's Cave of Patriarchs and Rachel's Tomb in nearby Bethlehem to its list of national heritage sites. The move angered Palestinians, who want Israel out of the territory. Jews revere the Hebron site where the Bible says the patriarchs Abraham, Isaac and Jacob were buried along with three of their wives. Muslims call it the al-Ibrahimi mosque, reflecting the fact that Abraham is considered the father of both Judaism and Islam. On Thursday, the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC), representing 57 predominantly Muslim states, strongly condemned the Israeli government's decision, calling it illegal and an attempt "to trigger religious confrontation." In a statement issued after a meeting of its ambassadors at United Nations headquarters in New York, the OIC urged the UN Security Council to take immediate steps "to compel the Israeli government to revoke this illegitimate action." It called on the Quartet of Mideast peacemakers - the UN, the US, the European Union and Russia - "to stand up to this blatant act of aggression which represents a serious provocation to Muslims ... and has the serious potential to incite yet another cycle of violence to further destabilise the fragile situation in the occupied Palestinian territories." The US, UN and some European nations have also expressed opposition. US State Department spokesman Mark Toner said on Wednesday the decision was "provocative" and unhelpful to the goal of restarting peace talks. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said the region could plunge into a "religious war" over the issue. In an interview with Israeli TV, Benjamin Netanyahu called the affair a "misunderstanding," saying there was no intention to infringe on Muslim freedom of worship. He said the intent was to protect and maintain the sites. Hebron has been a flashpoint for decades. Several hundred ultranationalist Jewish settlers live in heavily guarded enclaves in the midst of some 170-thousand Palestinians. Under accords signed in the 1990s, the Palestinians control 80 percent of the city and the Israeli military controls 20 percent.

Wide of Gadhafi seated on stage with other officials 9. Wide pull out of crowd STORYLINE Libya's leader called for a jihad, or holy war, against Switzerland on Thursday because of its ban on mosque minarets - escalating a long-running diplomatic feud between the two countries. Moammar Gadhafi also urged Muslims everywhere to boycott Swiss products and to bar Swiss planes and ships from the airports or seaports of Muslim nations. "If Switzerland was on our border, we would have fought it while it was destroying God's houses. Jihad against those who destroy God's mosques, destroy the minarets!" Gadhafi said in a speech before a gathering marking the birthday of the Islamic Prophet Muhammad in the Libyan city of Benghazi. The Swiss Foreign Ministry declined to comment on Gadhafi's call for a holy war against the neutral Alpine republic. In November, Swiss voters overwhelmingly approved a constitutional ban on minarets, in a controversial decision that put Switzerland at the forefront of a European backlash against a growing Muslim population. Muslim groups in Switzerland and abroad condemned the vote as biased and anti-Islamic and business groups warned that the decision could damage relations with Muslim nations and wealthy Islamic investors who bank, travel and shop there. Any Muslims who deal with Switzerland are "apostates," Gadhafi said on Thursday. "Boycott Switzerland, boycott its goods, boycott its planes, boycott its ships, boycott its embassies, boycott this apostate, dissolute nation, which has assaulted Allah's houses," he told his audience. Relations between Libya and Switzerland turned icy after Gadhafi's son, Hannibal, and his wife were arrested in a luxury hotel in Geneva in 2008 for allegedly beating up their servants. Gadhafi was released after two days, but Libya retaliated by recalling diplomats from Switzerland, taking its money out of Swiss vaults and interrupting oil shipments to the Swiss. In 2009, former Swiss President Hans-Rudolf Merz apologised in Libya and agreed to possible compensation claims. But Switzerland backed out of the deal after two Swiss businessman were blocked from leaving Libya. One left earlier this week after more than 19 months in the Swiss Embassy in Tripoli. The other has been convicted of violating residency laws and remains in Libyan custody. Earlier this month, Tripoli responded to a Swiss travel ban on Gadhafi, his family and ministers by banning citizens of 25 European countries from travelling to Libya. The visa restrictions threatened lucrative work for Europeans in Libya's booming oil and gas industries, but mediation from Italy and Spain has eased the constraints. Anxieties about growing Muslim minorities have rippled across Europe in recent years, leading to legal changes in some countries. France has banned headscarves in schools and is considering legislation to ban head-to-toe coverings for women. Some German states have introduced bans on head scarves for Muslim women teaching in public schools. But the Swiss ban on minarets was one of the most extreme reactions. Muslims comprise about six percent of Switzerland's 7.5 (m) million people. Many are refugees from the Yugoslav wars of the 1990s and about one in 10 actively practices the religion, the government says.

Mid of Thaksin supporters clapping outside the Puea Thai political party headquarters 24. High angle shot of Thaksin supporters clapping and cheering STORYLINE Thailand's highest court ruled on Friday to seize 46 (b) billion baht (1.4 (b) billion US dollars) from ousted Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra's 2.29 (b) billion US dollars in frozen assets, saying he had abused his political power for personal gain. The Supreme Court said seizing all the frozen wealth "would be unfair as some of it was made before Thaksin became prime minister." The verdict brings an end to a case that began after Thaksin, a former telecommunications tycoon, was deposed by a 2006 military coup for alleged massive corruption and abuse of power. Corruption investigations began immediately after the coup, and 76 (b) billion baht in accounts in Thailand belonging to Thaksin and his family was frozen pending legal action. Friday's verdict was expected be celebrated by Thaksin's foes, protested by his supporters and potentially inflame Thailand's four-year political crisis. Security was tight around the courthouse as the nine-judge panel took seven-and-a-half hours to read the verdict against Thaksin and his family. The proceedings were broadcast live on national television. Thaksin, who faces a two-year jail term from an earlier conviction, monitored the proceedings from exile in Dubai, where he provided a commentary via a video link and Twitter. "I knew yesterday that this would happen, but I just wanted to know how it would happen," Thaksin said shortly after the verdict. He said the Thai government had known about the verdict in advance. An unknown portion of Thaksin's wealth was earlier moved abroad. Hundreds of Thaksin supporters at the headquarters of the opposition Puea Thai party, which is allied to Thaksin, booed as the verdict was read. Some women began crying and one man jumped up on a chair and started screaming at a television screen showing the court proceedings. The court ruled that Thaksin illegally concealed his ownership of stock in Shin Corp., the family's telecommunications empire, and abused his authority by crafting government policies to benefit Shin Corp.'s businesses. The court addressed five cases of alleged "policy corruption" and ruled that in four of the five Thaksin was guilty of abusing his authority during his 2001-2006 tenure as prime minister. One of the most prominent cases involved a 127 (m) million US dollar low-interest government loan to Myanmar in 2004, which the court ruled Thaksin had endorsed with the intention of securing its purchase of satellite services from Shin Satellite, then controlled by Thaksin's family. Thaksin's government billed the loan as a way to help the impoverished military-run country finance telecommunications projects. The court ruled that Thaksin's government set domestic satellite policies that benefited his businesses. It also ruled that a policy to convert part of a telecommunications concession fee into an excise tax "favoured Shin Corp. at the expense of the state." The government of Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva hopes that Friday's ruling will lead to a return of stability, but has ordered a security crackdown around the country, claiming that the pro-Thaksin "Red Shirt" movement may be planning violence. Thaksin's critics will see the guilty verdict as the culmination of a process to cleanse Thai politics that began with protests in 2006 calling for his ouster for alleged corruption which segued into a military coup in September that year. They also accuse him of disrespecting the country's constitutional monarch, 82-year-old King Bhumibol Adulyadej. His supporters will view the ruling as the latest in a series of injustices that drove a democratically elected leader from office despite two sweeping election victories. They believe he is being persecuted because the traditional urban ruling class felt threatened when he empowered the country's rural majority, which was grateful for Thaksin's innovative social welfare programmes. The passions held by the two sides led to the occupation of the seat of government for several months and the seizure of the capital's two airports for a week by Thaksin's opponents in 2008, and rioting and disruption of a conference of Asian heads of government by his supporters last year. His Red Shirt supporters continue to rally on his behalf and have promised a "million-man" march next month. Thaksin, who fled into exile ahead of a 2008 conviction on a conflict of interest charge, rallies his followers by video and over the Internet. His opponents accuse him of funding the Red Shirt movement to topple the government and hope that seizing his assets will starve the movement.

Pan of meeting STORYLINE Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad met with the leaders of Lebanon-based Hezbollah, and Gaza's Hamas during a visit to the Syrian capital Damascus. According to Iran's state TV, Ahmadinejad met with Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah on Thursday to discuss "the latest developments in the region, and Zionist threats against Lebanon and Syria." Broadcaster IRIB showed Ahmadinejad and Nasrallah at an official dinner reception, hosted by Syrian President Bashar Assad. IRIB also showed Ahmadinejad visiting Khaled Mashaal, political leader of Hamas, who is in exile in Damascus. Hezbollah has long been associated with Iran, with many accusing the Islamic republic of arming and supporting the group. Iran has denied the charges and maintains that it does not interfere in the internal matters of other countries. Israel also accuses Iran of supplying weapons to Hamas. Iran, which does not recognise Israel, denies the charge and says it only gives the group money for reconstruction. Ahmadinejad's trip to Syria comes amid US calls to Syria to loosen ties with Iran. On Thursday, Assad said his long-standing alliance with Tehran remains strong despite overtures from Washington intended to shift his loyalties. The US has reached out to Syria in recent months by nominating the first US ambassador to Damascus since 2005 and sending top diplomats to meet with Assad.

We were trying to find out what happened, but there was not any power outage or power failure, well there was a failure just in this room in the Miraflores palace, that uses a power generator and it allows us to remember that it's necessary to save (energy)." 10. Chavez speaking with Nicolas Maduro, Venezuelan Foreign Minister STORYLINE A sudden power failure interrupted Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez in mid-sentence during a televised news conference at the presidential palace on Thursday. The emergency lights turned on in Miraflores palace, while ministers, military officials and workers tried to find out what the failure was. Power was restored after a minute and 20 seconds, and an employee explained to the president what had happened. Chavez then informed the journalist and the TV audience that the interruption had been caused by problems with a power generator. "We are still here, we have not disappeared," he joked. Chavez added that the incident would remind people about the necessity to save energy. Power failures have become increasingly common in Venezuela, but the energy problems had not affected the presidential palace, until Thursday's incident. Chavez blames energy shortages on a drought and low water levels at the Guri Dam, which supplies about 70 percent of Venezuela's electricity. Critics argue Chavez has failed to invest enough in electricity production.

A surf school on the island is using the dog to promote the sport to China's growing middle class, Australian Broadcasting Corporation. Surf instructor Dahai Zhang told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation that if he can teach his pet dog Dan-dan to surf, anyone can learn. "I thought, why don't Chinese people surf? Then I thought, I have to learn to surf and learn it well," said Zhang. The school opened two years ago and continues to attract interest from local people, as well as offering packages to Chinese and international tourists. Zhang's business partner Brendan Sheridan predicted the sport was going to take off in a big way in China, as members of the growing middle class get used to having some fun in their spare time.

STILL photo of Guevara before being kidnapped STORYLINE: Colombia's largest rebel group on Thursday turned over the remains of a police officer who died while being held captive in 2006. It was the latest gesture by The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or the FARC aimed at persuading the government into negotiating a prisoner exchange. The FARC, gave a humanitarian mission led by Colombian Senator Piedad Cordoba the coordinates of the spot for the handover of the remains of Police Major Julian Guevara. A Super Cougar helicopter flown by a Brazilian crew ferried the mission into the Colombian jungle and returned them along with Guevara's remains to the southeastern city of Villavicencio. The dead police officer's mother, Emperatriz Castro de Guevara, and his daughter, Ana Maria, received the coffin holding his remains at the airport. Authorities plan to use DNA testing to confirm the bones are those of Guevara. Guevara was captured by the FARC in November 1998 and he died in January 2006 while still a prisoner. Cordoba said the rebels handed over the remains inside the coffin after holding a ceremony. The International Red Cross played a key role in the mission. The return of the remains came a day after rebels freed two captive soldiers, the first such move in more than a year. And on Tuesday, Colombian soldier Pablo Emilio Moncayo was released by FARC after being held for 12 years one of the longest-held hostages by the guerrilla group. He was 19 years old when he was captured. FARC leaders hope the releases, along with Thursday's action, will eventually lead to an agreement with the government for a swap of jailed rebels in exchange for soldiers, police and civilians being held by the FARC. Estimates vary as to how many Colombian hostages remain in captivity. The National Fund for Personal Freedom says there are 77 hostages in the country, including 21 police officers or soldiers and 27 civilians held by the FARC. Other hostages are held by common criminals or by a smaller rebel group, the National Liberation Army. Some groups estimate there are more captives. The non-governmental group Pais Libre says there are at least 136.

So we are going to be offering them tents, some tarps, bags of rice, soap, water canisters and, in extreme cases, help to cover the cost of their education, because, I mean, our goal is, you know, to prevent further separation.

Various of children being hugged by their cousin as Valcy and the Heartland Alliance team say goodbye STORYLINE: Since the devastating earthquake which struck Haiti in January, five international aid groups have been working to trace children living in orphanages or homeless camps and return them to their families. Stranded since the earthquake, 9-year-old Ana toes the dusty concrete outside her orphanage and tells a social worker she wants to go back to live with her half-sister. Within hours, the aid worker finds the adult sister in a sprawling shantytown. But there's a problem. The sister, an impoverished woman with two children of her own, was the one who dropped the girl at the orphanage in the first place. The aid groups have already found 700 children they believe were separated from their families by the earthquake, and they expect the number to rise dramatically because of a new hot line set up to report cases of separated children. The work is painfully slow, especially for younger children who can't give phone numbers or details of their families in a city where hundreds of thousands have been forced from their homes into makeshift camps. And too often, days of sleuthing lead not to joyful reunions but to parents and guardians too overwhelmed to take the children back. "We listen to them and see if they know if they lived near a hospital, a church or a school that would permit us to look for where they lived before and to find a relative nearby," said Mario Marcellus, a Haitian caseworker for World Vision, one of five international aid groups trying to place kids back to their families. World Vision has managed to find families for only 12 of its 300 cases so far and only five children have been reunited with their families. In seven other cases, the families did not want them back. The magnitude-7 earthquake that the government estimates killed 230,000 people proved the breaking point for many families that could barely afford to feed their children before. The World Vision team found Ana on Monday at a partially collapsed orphanage in the Tabarre flatlands on the northern edge of Port-au-Prince, sleeping with 17 other children in a tent rigged from bed sheets. She has a rash covering her face and body that is going untreated, and the orphanage director said the girl is so traumatised that she has no memory of the earthquake. Ana huddled in an alley with Marcellus, the caseworker, who gently prodded for clues about her life before the January quake: What does your house look like? What do you remember about your neighbourhood? The orphanage director took Marcellus aside and warned him that a reunion may not be possible for Ana and her half-sister. The girl's mother died when she was younger. Her father, who lives nearby, visited after the earthquake and complained that she does not belong in an orphanage. But he offered no alternative, the orphanage director said. Even amid the dire conditions since the quake, the guiding principle of the aid groups is that children's best protectors are their families. To that end, they have developed strategies to win over reluctant guardians like Ana's sister. Aid groups refer parents and guardians in the desperately poor country to earning opportunities such as the U.N. work-for-food programme. To make the children seem less of a burden, they are sent home with parcels of rice, sandals, toothpaste and cooking oil. World Vision also provides 60 to 150 US dollars in cash, depending on how many children the family has. "We have appreciated the conditions of the parents are not the greatest, but we have been shocked to learn the parents have not been looking for them, or they have not expected them back," said Noah Ochola, the leader of World Vision's Children in Emergencies programme. The disaster heightened an already existing problem: the institutionalisation of children in a country where roughly 40 percent of the population is under age 14. Outside of Port-au-Prince, near the Malpasse border crossing to the Dominican Republic, a Heartland Alliance team receives a call from the Albert Einstein Israeli field hospital to check on cases of unaccompanied children. Dolan Valcy, leading a team of three other case workers, sits down to question a girl whose mother has just succumbed to AIDS the day before. The 13-year-old girl, along with her 8-year-old brother, are now orphans. The children, whose names Heartland Alliance asked not be used, must now seek out a relative or other guardian. The task is complicated. The girl is HIV-positive, and a family friend who had helped to look after the children while their mother was sick cannot take them. The are no fathers. The case workers gently console the girl, who has been crying, as they prod her for information on relatives. With the help of the family friend, they come up with a number for an uncle. Valcy phones him, and he agrees to drive out to the field hospital to meet with the case workers. The children draw pictures and colour them in with crayons as Valcy and the others meet with the uncle. The uncle is reluctant: he has two children of his own and he lost his house during the quake. The case workers promise to return and check on the kids For now they are being looked after by neighbours in the encampment. "It's a shame when you can do all the work," said Ramsey Ben-Achour, the Haiti director for Heartland Alliance, another of the five groups under UNICEF, "find a family and them not have them take them back." The less time that has passed since the separation, the easier it is to reunite families. In Ana's case, there are already signs of progress as her sister agreed in a later conversation to meet with Ana at the orphanage next week.

SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) Alberto Bazbaz, Mexico State Attorney General: "Her death was ultimately the result of mechanical asphyxiation by suffocation through the blocking of the airways." 11. Wide of news conference STORYLINE: A disabled 4-year-old Mexican girl has been found dead in her own bedroom more than a week later. Prosecutors say Paulette Gebara Farah had been asphyxiated, and her mother was now a suspect. Since the child was reported missing on March 22 by her parents, the family and friends had scattered images of the child on billboards and flyers across Mexico City, riveting people's attention in a region where occasional reports of child snatching have created dread among many parents. The shocking discovery of the child's body under the mattress of her bed at her wealthy parents' apartment late on Tuesday left prosecutors struggling to explain how multiple searches could have been conducted without the body being found. Investigators weren't even looking for the girl in the apartment on the outskirts of Mexico City when they found her body, but were searching for suitcases or other family possessions that might have been missing or moved. Speaking at a news conference on Wednesday, Mexico State Attorney General Alberto Bazbaz said investigators had detected a strong odour which alerted them to the discovery. "She was found in her own room, by the foot of her bed, in between the mattress and the structure that holds it, and covered by the sheets and covers from the bed," Bazbaz said. Bazbaz said he had talked with the mother, Lisette Farah, in the bedroom where Paulette was found but had not detected anything. His comment suggested the grisly possibility that the mother, a lawyer, had spoken with authorities and journalists while sitting on the same bed under which the body was found. The family lives in an upscale suburb of Mexico City located in Mexico State, which borders the capital. In previous television interviews, the mother said she had put Paulette to bed in her bedroom the night of March 21. The next morning, one of her nannies reported Paulette wasn't in her room, and investigators found no signs of forced entry to the apartment. Speaking last Friday, Farah pleaded for her daughter's safe return. "I don't want to say that someone took her, or blame anyone. The only thing I want is to get my daughter back." "She is a special girl that needs her parents, she cannot fend for herself," Farah added. Paulette had difficulties walking and talking due to an unspecified disability. Bazbaz said prosecutors initially assumed they were dealing with a case in which the child had somehow been taken from the luxury apartment building. But he said they later became suspicious of Farah after she was overheard telling her other daughter not to talk because the family might be blamed for the disappearance. On Monday, Lisette Farah, her husband, Mauricio Gebara, and two nannies were put under a form of house arrest for questioning, after authorities said they detected contradictions in their statements to police. Authorities had previously said on Monday said that the four were not suspects. The group were being held at a hotel in Toluca and were not available to comment on the prosecutors' statement on Wednesday. It was unclear whether the spot where the body was found wrapped in sheets was where the girl died, or whether the body had been moved, authorities said. While the results of an autopsy are pending, Bazbaz said the death was caused by "asphyxiation by suffocation," but no other signs of violence were immediately found. Bazbaz said investigators were treating the case as a homicide.

Peru's No. 1 tourist site had been shut down since late January, when heavy rains disrupted the rail link from the city of Cuzco and trapped some 4,000 tourists, many of whom had to be rescued with helicopters. Workers have now finished repairing the last 17 miles (27.3 kilometres) of the tracks, though service has not been restored all the way to Cuzco. Officials have said the entire route is not expected to reopen until June. Until then, tourists can travel by bus from Cuzco to Piscachuco and from there by train to Machu Picchu Pueblo at the base of the ruins. The train is the only form of transportation to the fortress, though hardier tourists can also hike there along the steep Inca Trail. Machu Picchu, nestled atop a verdant mountain in the Andes, averages 1,500 to 2,000 visitors a day.

And the elections, where everyone participates, would also provide national reconciliation. So the fact that are certain laws that look quite discriminatory in the sense you are providing amnesty only to the military leadership and not to the rest of the, I think, the political opposition side of it - that might have created some difficulty for the national reconciliation." 4.

So it is up to their judgement what is reality from their point of view." 9. Mid of Kasit in interview 10. SOUNDBITE: (English) Kasit Piromya, Thai Foreign Minister: "The Russians has not given us a reasonable explanation. And we are a bit disappointed with the Russians. And my Prime Minister had been invited to visit Moscow in June. We hope to settle this issue before we go to Moscow." 11. Wide of Kasit during the interview STORYLINE: Thailand will be pressing Myanmar's military leaders in the coming week to open its first elections in two decades to all political opponents and ethnic minorities, the country's foreign minister said on Friday. "I'm concerned about the national reconciliation and the inclusiveness of the whole new political process," Kasit Piromya said in an interview with The Associated Press. Last week, opposition leader and Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, who is under house arrest, denounced the government's newly announced laws guiding the election as undemocratic and recommended a boycott of the election, expected later this year. Her National League for Democracy party, which swept the last vote in 1990 but was barred from taking power, decided on Monday to opt out of the election and now faces dissolution under the junta's laws. Commenting on other pressing issues in his interview with the AP Mr Kasit said he was disappointed in Russia's government for giving Thai deposed former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra passage into their country. "The Russians haven't given us a reasonable explanation", said the foreign minister adding he's hoping the issue will be resolved before upcoming bilateral meeting in June. Thaksin Shinawatra was removed from office by a 2006 coup while abroad, returning briefly in 2008 only to flee ahead of a conviction on a conflict of interest charge. Recently other governments have given him permission to stay in their country including Dubai and Sweden. Kasit said he could understand the "predicament" of foreign governments and their "difficulty in making a distinction" between Mr Thaksin's "semi-political exile" and Mr Thaksin "a convicted criminal on the run." Thai officials accuse Thaksin of drumming up support from afar among his loyal Red Shirt protestors. Thaksin has orchestrated, and to some extent funded, the Red Shirt protesters who are demanding that Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva call fresh elections. It is "a step forward" the Red Shirts haven't brought up Thaksin's return in recent negotiations, Kasit said in the interview. The protesters have been camped in an historic district of Bangkok since March 12 and are planning another mass march this Saturday. Earlier marches have snarled traffic and drawn upward of 100,000 people.

Ulysse and Dieuvil drive away in car STORYLINE: More than 30 Haitians who boarded US-bound planes without paperwork in evacuations after the earthquake were freed from immigration detention centres on Thursday after spending about two months behind bars, lawyers for the Haitians said. Some of the Haitians said they boarded US military planes because they were hungry or simply desperate to escape the humanitarian crisis. US immigration officials warned Haitians they might be detained if they entered the country illegally, yet the country also suspended deportations after the January 12 quake. A total of 65 Haitians had been detained in Florida and other states, said a spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security. It's not immediately clear what will happen to the rest of the detainees. A story about the detainees was first reported in The New York Times. Jackson Ulysse, 20, walked out of the Pompano Beach detention centre on Thursday with plans to reunite with an uncle in Connecticut, learn English and attend a trade school. "He said that he is very happy, first because he is still alive after the earthquake, and second that he is released," said a family friend translating from Haitian Creole for Ulysse. When Ulysse arrived in Orlando with his brother on January 19, he was shocked when his Haitian passport wasn't enough to gain him entry to the US. Ulysse said he must report to immigration officials later this month. The survivors' accounts reflect the chaos at the Port-au-Prince airport soon the earthquake. While the US military worked to establish order, air traffic snarled and aid workers, journalists, international troops and evacuees competed for space between luggage carousels and under jetways. The disorder continued in Florida, where hospitals were overwhelmed with injured survivors and state officials complained about a lack of communication about the evacuations, prompting the US military to halt medical airlifts for several days. By the end of February, US Customs and Border Protection processed more than 31,000 people evacuated from Haiti, including roughly 7,200 foreign nationals. About 1,100 received humanitarian parole while others received tourist visas.

Exterior of Rotana Salam Hotel where opposition parties met 9. Exterior of the SPLM (Sudan Peoples' Liberation Movement) headquarters 10. Various of people reading newspapers STORYLINE Southern Sudan's main political party has withdrawn its candidate from the country's upcoming presidential election, a surprise move that erodes the credibility of the nation's first multiparty election in decades. The Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM) pulled Yassir Arman - widely considered the most serious challenger to President Omar al-Bashir's re-election bid - from the race late on Wednesday. The party also announced that it will not field candidates in the volatile Darfur region for local or nationwide parliamentary elections being held at the same time as the presidential vote. The announcement comes as more than a dozen northern opposition parties and independent candidates also consider a boycott of the 11 April vote amid concerns that alleged government control of the media and biased legislation make a fair vote impossible. The decision was made as the US envoy to Sudan, Scott Gration, arrived in Khartoum late on Wednesday. Gration was holding talks on Thursday with political leaders in Khartoum about the upcoming vote, US Embassy spokeswoman Judith Ravin said. SPLM party spokesman Yien Matthew said party officials planned to meet with Gration for talks aimed at warding off a crisis 10 days ahead of the country's first multi-party elections in 26 years. Matthew said the party decided late on Wednesday to withdraw Arman from the presidential race and withdraw candidates from the votes in Darfur because of what he called numerous violations committed by al-Bashir's ruling National Congress Party and instability and state of emergency in Darfur. The party will still participate in local and parliamentary elections in the rest of Sudan's regions, he said. Matthew said the party is in talks with other opposition groups and warned they could decide in unison for a total election boycott within days. The SPLM is the junior partner in al-Bashir's governing coalition, and the party's boycott throws its relations with the president's party into jeopardy. However, Arman was considered al-Bashir's most serious challenger in the presidential race. Meanwhile Hassan Al Turabi, a leading Muslim opposition leader described the SPLM's decision to boycott the presidential elections as a mistake. The national and presidential elections are a crucial step in the 2005 north-south peace deal that ended a 21-year civil war and paves the way for a referendum when southerners would decide whether they will opt for secession from the Muslim-dominated north. Some two (m) million people died during the war. It is separate from the Darfur conflict which erupted in 2003 and has left 300,000 people dead. No comprehensive peace deal has been reached for Darfur. Al-Bashir has already obtusely snubbed his southern partner, warning that the much-coveted 2011 referendum for southern Sudan is in danger if opposition parties pressed for postponing the elections. The opposition has accused the president's National Congress Party of using state resources, limiting their access to the media and controlling the independent National election commission, undermining their chances and the fairness of the process. International observers and rights groups have said all signs point to a flawed process where the National Election Commission is unlikely to deliver a free and fair process and on time. On Wednesday the United States, Norway and Britain expressed worry about reports of restrictions on political freedoms, saying in a statement that all parties must make sure peaceful and credible elections are held in April.
