SOUNDBITE: (English) Laura Paulson, New York Director of Contemporary Art, Sotheby's "Michael Jackson is really a subject matter that is popular culture, and by that aspect of it, it's kitschy, it's glossy, it's glittery, and it's outside the realm of, certainly pushes the levels of what we would call standard good taste.

Among the works auctioned on Tuesday were "Michael Jackson and Bubbles," a porcelain sculpture by the artist Jeff Koons. The piece sold for 5 (m) million 615-thousand-750 U-S dollars. It was the highest price ever paid for a work by Koons at auction -- his previous record was 1.8 (m) million U-S dollars. The sculpture is considered by many to be Koons' most significant work and a triumph both technically and conceptually. Koons has said he identifies personally with Michael Jackson. In 1988 the artist said: "If I could be one other living person, it would probably be Michael Jackson." Like Jackson, Koons rose to worldwide prominence in the "excessive, decadent" 1980's, taking the art world by surprise with his sculptures that elevated the commonplace to the level of the devotional. Since the image of pop idol Michael Jackson and his pet monkey burst onto the art scene in 1988, the work has caused sensational interest wherever it's exhibited, drawing crowds and the attention of art critics worldwide. Koons' sculpture was produced in an edition of three - the other two are held in a foundation in Athens and at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Other highlights from the contemporary art sale included a Jackson Pollock painting from 1951 called "Black and White/Number 6" and Andy Warhol's instantly recognizable "Soup Cans." They sold for 7 (m) million 980-thousand-750 and 3 (m) million 745-thousand-750 U-S dollars respectively. Gerhard Richter's painting "Drei Kerzen" or "Three Candles" sold for 5 (m) million 395-thousand-750.

The show was the first of two at Madison Square Garden - the second is tonight (Monday 10th September). They are his first concerts on American soil in more than ten years. Usher, Destiny's Child, and Naomi Campbell were among the stars at the event, which drew a capacity crowd - some of whom had paid up to USD 2,500 per ticket. Promoters said the tickets sold out within hours of going on sale. The stars were eager to sing Jackson's praises, and in many cases, remember a friend. Singer Kenny Rogers told APTN he still has early photographs of the star, taken when he was putting together a photography book. Jackson himself arrived in a white glittery jacket, with his close friend Elizabeth Taylor. The concert started nearly an hour late as the two stars were escorted to their seats. Sitting next to him was Macaulay Culkin, and Jackson's parents, Katherine and Joseph. The star-studded performances included Whitney Houston, who brought the house down with her rendition of 'Wanna be Startin' Somethin' ', a hit from Jackson's 'Thriller' album of 1982. Destiny's Child donned Jackson-style spangled hats and white gloves for a version of 'Bootylicious' performed to the tune of another huge 'Thriller' hit, 'Billie Jean'. Liza Minnelli broke down, declaring "I love you, Michael" as she sang 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' in a cloud of bubbles. But the performance the crowd were really waiting for was Jackson's own - he took to the stage with his brothers, to sing and dance his way through The Jackson 5's 1970 hit 'I Want You Back'. It was his first performace with his brothers since their 1984 "Victory" tour, Other scheduled appearances over the two concerts include Britney Spears, 'N Sync, Usher, Ray Charles, Marc Anthony, Al Jareau, Gladys Knight, Mya, Yoko Ono, Jill Scott, Alicia Keys, Shaquille O'Neal, Samuel L. Jackson, and Marlon Brando. For those with USD 20,000 or more to spend, there was an after-hours party with Jackson. At 43 years of age, and with more than three decades in the spotlight, Jackson has his sights set on another comeback. The concerts are part of Jackson's attempt to reclaim his King of Pop title after a six-year absence between albums. His new album 'Invincible' is due out at the end of October - last week, he released the first single, 'You Rock My World.' On Thursday night Jackson stole the show at the MTV Video Music Awards by appearing briefly on stage with 'N Sync. The Jackson concerts will be broadcast on CBS this autumn.

Joe Jackson says he and his family appreciate the world-wide outpouring of mourning for his son, adding, "I wish that Michael could be here to see all this - had to wait 'till something happened like this before he could be realized."

I have great respect for what he has done in his work over the years, he's a real genius. As far as playing him in a movie that is such an obtuse rumour that I never had the pleasure of cultivating it's not my idea you know." Universal Pictures 20 . Trailer for Public Enemies DEPP DENIES RUMOURS ABOUT A MICHAEL JACKSON FILM Johnny Depp and Oscar winner Marion Cotillard have walked the red carpet at the premiere of their new film Public Enemies in London. (JUN 29 2009) Depp was greeted by hundreds of screaming fans who chanted his name at the event, which brought 1930s gangster glamour to the West End of London. The actor stars as John Dillinger, the charismatic bank robber whose lightning raids made him the No 1 target of J Edgar Hoover's fledgling FBI and its top agent Melvin Purvis, who is played by Christian Bale. He spoke of his "fascination" for the character. "He was public enemy number one but for me myself I never saw him as an enemy of the public I always thought of John Dillinger in a way as a 1930s version of a Robin Hood," said Depp. Depp also paid tribute to Michael Jackson, who died last week, and put to bed rumours that he was interested in starring as the late singer in a film based on his life. "You know it's very, very very tragic you know some children lost a father, some parents lost a child and some brothers and sisters lost a sibling so that's obviously sad. I have great respect for what he has done in his work over the years, he's a real genius. As far as playing him in a movie that is such an obtuse rumour that I never had the pleasure of cultivating it's not my idea you know," said Depp. Dillinger's charm endeared him to girlfriend Billie Frechette (played by Marion Cotillard). In a scene in the film he sees her character from across the room and is instantly enchanted by her. It's a scenario that is familiar to Depp as that is how he fell in love with his current girlfriend Vanessa Paradis. "Yeah we've been together about 11 years and have two children. I saw a back from about 30 yards away, I saw a back and a neck and it turned around suddenly and looked at me and I was stupefied and then it was over," Depp described the first moment he saw Paradis. Cotillard, who won an Oscar for her portrayal of Edith Piaf in La Vie En Rose, wore a strapless Vivienne Westwood red gown on the red carpet, with Dior shoes and a Stella McCartney clutch bag. Her accent in the film was a curious mix of French and mid-western American. "Well she was half French but she wasn't really supposed to have a French accent but Michael Mann chooses a French girl but I work hard to try to be as close as I could to a mid-western accent. So it was really really hard. But I love English language so it was very interesting," said Cotillard. Director Michael Mann said he cast Depp for the role of Dillinger as he'd always wanted to see him in a role like it. "Because I wanted to always see Johnny Depp do this kind of a role. I liked him in Donny Brasco, I like him playing a man a tough guy and also there are deep currents within him and I'd always wanted to see Johnny do a very emotionally open performance and that's what this is," said Mann.

"She is a very loving, kind and gracious woman, and she had a very close relationship with Michael and a very good rapport with her grandchildren," Lester said. "I know the kids are fine. They are deeply saddened by what's happened, but they're coping." Lester made the comments today (29 June 2009), five days after Jackson died in his LA home. Jackson's family moved quickly Monday to take control of his complicated personal and financial affairs, winning temporary custody of his three children and asking a judge to name the King of Pop's mother as administrator of his estate. In documents filed in Superior Court, Jackson's parents said they believe their 50-year-old son died without a valid will.

Young boy dressed as Michael Jackson STORYLINE Michael Jackson, the sensationally gifted child star who rose to become the "King of Pop" and the biggest celebrity in the world only to fall from his throne in a freakish series of scandals, has died. He was 50. Jackson died on Thursday at UCLA Medical Centre after being stricken at his rented home in the Holmby Hills section of Los Angeles. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his home for nearly three-quarters of an hour, then rushed him to the hospital, where doctors continued to work on him. His brother Jermaine said it is believed he suffered cardiac arrest in his home. However, he said the cause of his death "is unknown until results of the autopsy are known." Jermaine Jackson said his brother's personal doctor and paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his rented home in Holmby Hills. A team of doctors at UCLA Medical Centre also tried for more than an hour, Jermaine said. Los Angeles police Lieutenant Gregg Strenk said at a separate news conference that police robbery-homicide detectives have been ordered to investigate, which is common in a high-profile case. Strenk said the coroner's office, which will handle inquiries into the type of death, is taking possession of the body. Across the United States, people reacted in stunned disbelief as word spread of Jackson's death. Within minutes of Jackson's arrival by ambulance at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Centre people began arriving by the hundreds, the crowd quickly filling a grassy entrance outside the hospital. Overhead, news helicopters whirred noisily and TV trucks clogged streets. Hundreds of people gathered outside the hospital as word of his death spread. The emergency entrance at the medical centre, which is near Jackson's rented home, was roped off with police tape. As word spread a few minutes later that Jackson had died, several people burst into tears. Others stood silently, looking pensive, as they waited for official word from the hospital. Angela, one of the fans gathered outside the medical centre, said Jackson's death would affect an entire generation. Another fan in tears said she was in disbelief. A similar scene played out just a couple miles away, in front of Jackson's tony Holmby Hills home, where a Fire Department ambulance had arrived earlier to take him to the hospital. Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music's premier all-around performer, a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage. His 1982 album "Thriller," which included the blockbuster hits "Beat It," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller," is the best-selling album of all time, with an estimated 50 million copies sold worldwide. He was perhaps the most exciting performer of his generation, known for his feverish, crotch-grabbing dance moves and his high-pitched voice punctuated with squeals and titters. His single sequined glove, tight, military-style jacket and aviator sunglasses were trademarks second only to his ever-changing, surgically altered appearance. Jackson ranked alongside Elvis Presley and the Beatles as the biggest pop sensations of all time. He united two of music's biggest names when he was briefly married to Presley's daughter, Lisa Marie, and Jackson's death immediately evoked that of Presley himself, who died at age 42 in 1977. As years went by, Jackson became an increasingly freakish figure, a middle-aged man-child weirdly out of touch with grown-up life. His skin became lighter, his nose narrower, and he spoke in a breathy, girlish voice. He surrounded himself with children at his Neverland ranch, often wore a germ mask while travelling and kept a pet chimpanzee named Bubbles as one of his closest companions.

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

Exterior of Palazzo della Regione, where meetings are being held STORYLINE Security was tight in the port city of Trieste on Friday where the G8 Foreign Minister's were set to discuss a wide range of global issues from instability in Iran and Afghanistan to North Korea's ambitions. Foreign ministers of Group of Eight countries started their meeting with a working dinner on Thursday, and will end it at midday Saturday. On the agenda is a series of global issues, from counterterrorism to organised crime and piracy. According to the agenda, the leaders were seeking to find a common position on Iran's violent crackdown on protesters. Italy, the host of the meeting, said on Thursday it wanted to send a tough message, but Italian officials in Trieste also stressed the need not to further isolate Iran. Benita Ferrero-Waldner, the EU commissioner for external relations condemned the use of excessive force, and called for dialogue among battling parties within Iran. Italy originally invited Iran to attend the three-day gathering as a special guest, arguing that it could play an important role in stabilising Afghanistan, an important focus of the meeting. But Italy retracted the invitation after Iran failed to respond, and after days of violent clashes with demonstrators protesting Iran's disputed June 12 elections. The Afghan conflict will also be discussed on Friday and Saturday, with US envoy Richard Holbrooke and important regional players, including the foreign ministers of Afghanistan and Pakistan, joining in the discussions on five major points of discussion: border management, drug trafficking, economic development, refugees, and food security. In all, 44 delegations will participate in the meeting of the eight industrial powers, including representatives from the Islamic Development Bank, the International Organisation for Migration and the World Food Program.

Various of fans holding signs at vigil outside hospital ABC - NO ACCESS NORTH AMERICA / INTERNET Los Angeles, California - 25 June 2009 22. Various aerial shots of fans outside hospital, with large banner reading "Michael Jackson is innocent" STORYLINE Fans stunned by the news of Michael Jackson's death were gathering all around the Los Angeles area, trying to cope with their grief and pay their respects. Jackson's body was taken to the Los Angeles County's Coroner's office on Thursday for an autopsy. His fans gathered across the street, some holding up signs, asking drivers to honk their horns for Michael. "He has left behind a tremendous legacy that will never be touched again by anybody," said fan Willie Green. On Hollywood's Walk of Fame, fans gathered to pray around a sidewalk star bearing the name "Michael Jackson," but it was the star for a local radio personality of the same name. Jackson's own star, in front of the historic Grauman's Chinese Theatre, was unreachable because of a movie premiere taking place there. After the premiere, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce planned to put flowers on it. Motown Record Corporation founder Berry Gordy said he was shocked at the passing of Jackson. At the young age of 11, Jackson became a star as frontman for his family's group The Jackson 5, which went on to become one of Motown's all-time biggest selling artists. "He was like my son," Gordy said, speaking from his Bel Air home late on Thursday afternoon, just hours after getting word of Jackson's death. Gordy remembers him as a man with two personalities. "When he was not on stage, he was loving, respectful and shy. When he was on stage, he was so in charge, you would not believe this was the same person. A showman from his toes to the top of his head," he said. Gordy recalls he was at first reluctant to sign The Jackson 5 to his label, coming off the complications of dealing with another one-time child star, Stevie Wonder. But he was impressed by young Michael. "He always wanted to be the best and was willing to work as hard as it took to be that," Gordy recalled. By the late 70s, both Michael Jackson and his brothers parted professional ways with Gordy, who was hoping they'd nonetheless reunite for a 25th-anniversary Motown celebration. Jackson's "Motown 25" performance of "Billie Jean" would help propel Jackson to his all-time popularity, with the best-selling "Thriller" album, and his being crowned the "King of Pop." Jackson would eventually be dethroned, both in terms of record sales and image. In recent years, he battled a variety of health issues. A number of friends and people who worked with the King of Pop said they were not surprised by his death. Michael Levine, a Hollywood publicist who represented Jackson in the early 1990s, said he had long thought the star was engaged in self destructive behaviour and that it could "only end in an inevitably bad and tragic way as it did today." "I wasn't surprised by this," he said. Fans could also be seen outside Michael's Jackon's parents house, in the Encino section of Los Angeles, laying flowers and candles, where Michael's father Joe Jackson arrived late at night. Fans also gathered outside the hospital where Jackson died, erecting a huge banner reading "Michael Jackson is innocent". Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music's premier all-around performer, a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage. His 1982 album "Thriller," which included the blockbuster hits "Beat It," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller," is the best-selling album of all time, with an estimated 50 (m) million copies sold worldwide. He was perhaps the most exciting performer of his generation, known for his feverish, crotch-grabbing dance moves and his high-pitched voice punctuated with squeals and titters. His single sequined glove, tight, military-style jacket and aviator sunglasses were trademarks second only to his ever-changing, surgically altered appearance. Jackson ranked alongside Elvis Presley and the Beatles as the biggest pop sensations of all time. He united two of music's biggest names when he was briefly married to Presley's daughter, Lisa Marie, and Jackson's death immediately evoked that of Presley himself, who died at age 42 in 1977.

His skin became lighter, his nose narrower, and he spoke in a breathy, girlish voice. He surrounded himself with children at his Neverland ranch, often wore a germ mask while travelling and kept a pet chimpanzee named Bubbles as one of his closest companions. Jackson married Lisa Marie Presley in 1994, and they divorced in 1996. Later that year, Jackson married Deborah Rowe, a former nurse for his dermatologist. They had two children together: Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., known as Prince Michael, and Paris Michael Katherine Jackson. Rowe filed for divorce in 1999.

Wide of blast site with onlookers standing STORYLINE : A booby-trapped motorcycle loaded with nails and ball-bearings exploded in a crowded bazaar in Baghdad on Friday, killing at least 13 people and wounding dozens, Iraqi officials said. It was the latest in a week of attacks that have killed more than 200 people ahead of next week's deadline for US troops to withdraw from urban areas in Iraq. The explosion occurred just after 9 a.m. (0600 GMT) when the market was packed with young people buying or selling motorcycles in central Baghdad, according to police and hospital officials. Nobody admitted the attack, but insurgents frequently target crowded market districts to try to maximise casualties. The motorcycle bazaar is only open on Fridays. The market has been hit by several bombings in the past, but Iraqis had resumed flocking to the area due to a sharp drop in violence. Attacks have continued on a daily basis despite the security gains of the past two years, but the recent bombings have been larger in terms of numbers killed. A medical assistant at one of the hospitals where the victims were taken, who identified himself as Abu Mohammed, said many of the wounded people had been struck by nails and ball-bearings and suffered severe burns. Police and hospital officials, who gave the death toll on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorised to release the information, said more than 40 people also were wounded. The escalation in violence is overshadowing Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's declaration of a "great victory" in the US pullout from urban areas by Tuesday's deadline. He has declared June 30 a national holiday to be marked with celebrations. US and Iraqi officials have warned they expect more violence in the days surrounding the deadline but insist the withdrawal will go ahead as scheduled. Under a security pact, the Americans must pull back from cities by June 30 and from the entire country by the end of 2011. But the continued violence has raised concerns about the readiness of Iraqi security forces to protect the people.

Pan of theatre entrance STORYLINE People across the world reacted with shock and sadness on Friday to news of Michael Jackson's death in California at the age of 50. Michael Jackson's death on Thursday in California prompted broadcasters from Sydney to Seoul - where the news came early Friday - to interrupt morning programmes, while fans remembered a "tortured genius" whose squeals and sliding moves captivated a generation and who sparked global trends in music, dance and fashion. Japanese fans were always among Jackson's most passionate supporters, and news of his death came as a huge shock. Tower Records' stores across Japan put up a special corner dedicated to Jackson on Friday. In Germany, party goers in Hanover spoke of their sadness at the loss of a musical great. Club DJ Tyron promised to play Jackson's music every night in memory of him. In Paris, early morning commuters couldn't quite believe the "king of pop" was dead. "I didn't think he was dead, are you sure he's dead?" asked one Parisian, Benoit. Another man, Apollinaire Baghnyan, paid tribute to the singer saying that his music "touched people of all age groups and all cultural origins." In Italy one man said despite being a great artist, Jackson "didn't leave a positive message to new generation". And outside London's Lyric theatre, which is currently showing a compilation of Jackson music, one man broke down in tears in disbelief at Jackson's death. "At first I thought it was a PR (public relations) stunt," the man said. "Once it was confirmed I was absolutely devastated, I was completely gutted," he added. Jackson died on Thursday at UCLA Medical Centre after being stricken at his rented home in the Holmby Hills section of Los Angeles. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his home for nearly three-quarters of an hour, then rushed him to the hospital, where doctors tried to revive him. His brother Jermaine says it is believed he suffered a cardiac arrest. However, he says the cause of his death "is unknown until results of the autopsy are known".

BET SHOW HIGHLIGHTS WRAP The BET Awards became the official Michael Jackson TV celebration on Sunday, as the show kicked off with joyous tributes to the King of Pop, from a New Edition-Jackson 5 medley to Jamie Foxx's monologue, delivered in that classic red leather zipper jacket and white glove. Already an affair of major star wattage, the night's show was thrown under a white-hot spotlight in the wake of Jackson's death Thursday, adding attendees and guests, doubling the number of media requests and even lengthening the red carpet to accommodate all who want to take part. Producers of the annual awards show - which recognises the best in music, acting and sports - say they scrapped their plans and revamped the show to meet the moment. While Beyonce and T.I. were the leading award nominees with five apiece, giving out trophies was an afterthought: Honouring Jackson was became the show's main focus. New Edition, the 1980s teen sensations who were considered that generation's Jackson 5 with their own version of bubble-gum soul, ran through several of the Jackson 5's greatest hits, from "I Want You Back" to "ABC," mirroring their idols right down to the group's original choreography. Ne-Yo sang one of Jackson's most sensual songs, "Lady in my Life." Janet Jackson took the stage to speak on behalf of her grieving family and thank fans for their love and support. It was Janet Jackson's first public appearance since her brother died last Thursday. With a deep sadness on her face, she strolled to the microphone and began to speak. She said: "My entire family wanted to be here tonight, but it was just too painful, so they elected me to be here." She noted that the King of Pop was an icon to all in attendance, but that to the Jacksons, "he was family." After her brief comments, Ne-Yo and Jamie Foxx took the stage and sang a poignant "I'll Be There" by the Jackson 5.

TOM JONES ON JACKSON DEATH: IT'S LIKE LENNON OR ELVIS Tom Jones says the world-wide reaction to Michael Jackson's death is similar to the international out pouring of grief for other music legends like John Lennon and Elvis Presley. The Welsh star used to know Jackson well and was shocked by the news when he heard it over the radio last Thursday (25 JUNE 2009): "Michael Jackson was huge, you know, a huge entertainer and had millions of fans all over the world, as did Elvis Presley and so did John Lennon, you know, and I think that it's just as sad and the people, millions of people, have been affected by Michael Jackson dying, you know, because his fans loved what he did and there were millions of them. So yes, I would compare it to Elvis Presley and John Lennon, yes." Talking at the British music festival in Glastonbury on Sunday (28 JUNE 2009), which was held the weekend following the news - Jones describes how he was personal friends with Jackson: "I knew him pretty well. I first met him when he was with the Jackson 5, you know, and over the years I've seen him going from strength to strength. He was a fantastic entertainer and I saw him live, you know, quite a few times and then I had a chance to talk to him. He used to come around my house sometimes in Los Angeles and he was just a lovely fellow." Jones admits that they never discussed things like plastic surgery together - but believes that when it came down to it, Jackson was happier chatting all about the music.

Joe Jackson told reporters outside the family's Southern California compound at midday Monday that the second autopsy is under way, but he expects results soon. The county coroner conducted an autopsy on Friday but has deferred a decision on the cause of death. Joe Jackson denies reports that his son will be buried at his Neverland ranch. He says, "That's not true." He also says he's happy is wife, Katherine, has been awarded temporary custody of Michael's three children. "This is where they belong. We're the parents," Jackson says.

Al Sharpton, who spent the morning with the Jacksons, says consideration of how to celebrate the legacy of the pop star must be done carefully. "We're talking about a historical figure who really changed pop culture around the world. This is not something you do carelessly and spontaneously.' Joe Jackson says he and his family appreciate the world-wide outpouring of mourning for his son, adding, "I wish that Michael could be here to see all this - had to wait 'till something happened like this before he could be realized."

Various aerial shots of crowd around UCLA Medical Centre ++MUTE++ MICHAEL JACKSON DIES AGED 50 Michael Jackson, the sensationally gifted child star who rose to become the "King of Pop" and the biggest celebrity in the world only to fall from his throne in a freakish series of scandals, has died. He was 50. Jackson passed away on Thursday (25 JUNE 2009) at UCLA Medical Centre after being stricken at his rented home in the Holmby Hills section of Los Angeles. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his home for nearly three-quarters of an hour, then rushed him to the hospital, where doctors continued to work on him. His brother Jermaine said it is believed he suffered cardiac arrest in his home. However, he said the cause of his death "is unknown until results of the autopsy are known." Jermaine Jackson said his brother's personal doctor and paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his rented home in Holmby Hills. A team of doctors at UCLA Medical Centre also tried for more than an hour, Jermaine said. Los Angeles police Lieutenant Gregg Strenk said at a separate news conference that police robbery-homicide detectives have been ordered to investigate, which is common in a high-profile case. Strenk said the coroner's office, which will handle inquiries into the type of death, is taking possession of the body. An autopsy was planned for Friday, though results were not likely to be final until toxicology tests could be completed, a process that could take several days and sometimes weeks. Across the United States, people reacted in stunned disbelief as word spread of Jackson's death. Within minutes of Jackson's arrival by ambulance at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Centre people began arriving by the hundreds, the crowd quickly filling a grassy entrance outside the hospital. Overhead, news helicopters whirred noisily and TV trucks clogged streets. Hundreds of people gathered outside the hospital as word of his death spread. Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music's premier all-around performer, a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage. His 1982 album 'Thriller,' which included the blockbuster hits 'Beat It,' 'Billie Jean' and 'Thriller,' is the best-selling album of all time, with an estimated 50 million copies sold worldwide. He was perhaps the most exciting performer of his generation, known for his feverish, crotch-grabbing dance moves and his high-pitched voice punctuated with squeals and titters. His single sequined glove, tight, military-style jacket and aviator sunglasses were trademarks second only to his ever-changing, surgically altered appearance. Jackson ranked alongside Elvis Presley and the Beatles as the biggest pop sensations of all time. He united two of music's biggest names when he was briefly married to Presley's daughter, Lisa Marie, and Jackson's death immediately evoked that of Presley himself, who died at age 42 in 1977. As years went by, Jackson became an increasingly freakish figure, a middle-aged man-child weirdly out of touch with grown-up life. His skin became lighter, his nose narrower, and he spoke in a breathy, girlish voice. He surrounded himself with children at his Neverland ranch, often wore a germ mask while travelling and kept a pet chimpanzee named Bubbles as one of his closest companions.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Reverend Jesse Jackson, Michael Jackson fan: "His business was under attack. He was struggling to maintain his catalogue. His energy level was low. He seemed to me to have lost an awful lot of weight. But he was determined to fight back. The most about Michael that we all knew was the singing and the dancing. He was as tough as he was talented."

SOUNDBITE: (English) Uri Geller, Friend of Michael Jackson: "While he was under deep hypnosis, I asked him 'Did you ever touch a child in an inappropriate way?' and he immediately answered: 'No, I would never do that!' and then I asked him 'Why did you pay off Jodie Chandler millions?', he said 'I couldn't take it anymore. I had enough.' Michael Jackson was totally innocent and he was proven innocent. Can you imagine what this man went through? The tragic trauma that he had to deal with throughout this life? I think this stress got to him finally. Sadly, he died yesterday." AP Television Macau/China, June 26 2009 17. SOUNDBITE (Korean), Rain, Singer: "It's a sad and unfortunate news.

US actress Brooke Shields crying as she walks at airport STARS PAY TRIBUTE TO MICHAEL JACKSON Michael Jackson was due to make his triumphant return to the stage in London next month - but instead his sudden death has left millions of fans feeling they've lost a lifelong friend. Jackson's death on Thursday (25 JUNE 2009) was a shock to stars as well and his passing was the talk of a red carpet event in New York City later that evening. Actress and comedienne Rosie Perez said it was a sad day. Jackson family friend Rashida Jones said Jackson simply was "the greatest." Leonard Rowe, a former manager for Jackson, said he thought something like this might happen. "I felt it was coming. I felt something like this was coming, but there wasn't an intervention," said Rowe, whose home is covered in pictures of Jackson as a young man and entertainer. Rowe blamed what he called "the evils of the entertainment industry" which cared only for "his profitability, not about his health and well being." Jesse Jackson noted that the pop star had recently lost a lot of weight and was struggling financially because his "business was under attack." A friend of the singer, Uri Geller, says he thinks that the stress of going through a public child abuse trial took it's toll: "Michael Jackson was totally innocent and he was proven innocent. Can you imagine what this man went through? The tragic trauma that he had to deal with throughout this life? I think this stress got to him finally. Sadly, he died yesterday."

Mid of sign outside theatre JACKSON REMEMBERED AROUND THE WORLD Word of Michael Jackson's death on Thursday (25 JUNE 2009) jolted nearly everyone, from a man in Mexico City who named his son after the King of Pop, to Malaysians who named a soy drink for him, to a generation of people around the world who have tried, in vain, to moonwalk. The worldwide chorus of grief united the legions of ordinary people who grew up with 'Thriller' and 'Beat It.' Michael Joseph Jackson was born August 29, 1958, in Gary, Indiana. He was 4 years old when he began singing with his brothers - Marlon, Jermaine, Jackie and Tito - in the Jackson 5. After his early success with bubblegum soul, he struck out on his own, generating innovative, explosive, unstoppable music. And his childhood home became a focus for fans dealing with the shock of the news: Local resident Edie Oliver tried to explain how they were feeling: "Well it hurt, it hurt to know that Michael passed on but he'll be remembered and right here in Gary, Indiana, we will always love the Jackson 5, regardless of whatever they say about him or whatever happened in the past, we here in Gary love the Jacksons." At the Apollo Theatre in New York City, where Jackson first performed with his brothers at age 9 in 1969, the billboard was cleared for the message, "In Memory of Michael Jackson. A True Apollo Legend." About a dozen people danced outside the theatre to Jackson's music, with a boom box blaring 'Don't Stop 'til You Get Enough.' Traffic stopped in front of the theatre while cars honked. People clutched the singer-dancer's pictures, played his music and tries to imitate his signature moonwalk moves. The sadness was felt outside of America too. In Seoul, Kim Nam-kyoung spoke of his reaction. "He was a star when I was little. Learning of his death, I felt like losing some of the memories of my childhood." In France the front pages all covered the news. Speaking in Paris, Apollinaire Baghnyan said: "It's a big loss for all music lovers because he had a type of music that touched people of all age groups and all cultural origins, that's why we are going to miss him a lot." Julia Morales from Lima in Peru explained what she thought about Jackson's death: "I feel very sorry, very sorry. We will miss out on musical contributions of someone who brought about a new path to pop music. I feel very sorry for that." And in Mexico City, "King of Pop" impersonator Esteban Rubio was able to physically demonstrated his intense regard for the star by changing his appearance to look like the singer: "Look at the physical change, tell me that he hasn't been an important part of my life. One of my kids is named Michael. I have an academy that's called Studio Jackson. Everything that was Michael Jackson was a fountain of inspiration for me, the strongest kind of inspiration. He was always present with me."

Blond worked with Michael Jackson during his 'Bad' and 'Thriller' days. "By 'Off the Wall' he was doing amazingly well. That was his first cover of Rolling Stone and we were breaking barriers. It was very hard to get someone who wasn't white on the cover of magazines or even MTV but with 'Thriller' every barrier was broken. Stadiums all over the world were sold out and he became the biggest star of all time.' She says the Michael Jackson she knew loved his fans and took his work very seriously. Even at a young age: "He always pushed himself very hard. In fact, every hotel he went to he had to have a dance floor in the hotel. That was what he...he never stopped working. It's funny, it wasn't Studio 54 but once we were at Regines together a long time ago and I said, 'Don't you want to dance?' and he said 'Dance? Dance is work.' So he didn't just go and dance like a regular teenager, you know?" Despite the controversies about the star and the child abuse trial when he was acquitted, Blond says she only looked for the good inside Jackson and specifically remembers meeting him and his family years later: "I did see him once at a kosher restaurant and he was with the two kids and he brought them over and we talked to them for a few minutes. Well, they were pretty little. But they sat like little dolls almost and they ate with perfect, little manners and they said, 'Hello' and he introduced me in such a sweet way so I saw more of the sweet part I remembered that day."

Still photograph showing Gordy presenting Michael Jackson with award STORYLINE: Throngs of fans danced to and sang Michael Jackson's songs outside the UCLA Medical Centre in Los Angeles on Thursday where the pop star died aged 50. Jackson died on Thursday at the medical centre after being stricken at his rented home in Holmby Hills. His brother Jermaine said it is believed Jackson had suffered cardiac arrest but that the cause of death will be unknown until an autopsy has been performed. Cardiac arrest is an abnormal heart rhythm that stops the heart from pumping blood to the body. It can occur after a heart attack or be caused by other heart problems. Paramedics tried to resuscitate Jackson at his home for nearly three-quarters of an hour, then rushed him to the hospital, where doctors continued to work on him. A large crowd formed outside the medical centre trying to come to terms with the shocking news of his death. People could be seen relaying the news to friends and family, making calls and sending text messages. Some in the crowd danced to Jackson's songs and called out his name. Others stood in stunned disbelief. Longtime family friend and lawyer of the Jacksons, Brian Oxman, said "we are devastated, the whole family is so sad and I don't know when I'm going to stop crying." A similar scene played out just a couple miles away, in front of Jackson's tony Holmby Hills home, where a Fire Department ambulance had arrived earlier to take him to the hospital. Motown Record Corporation founder Berry Gordy said he was shocked at the passing of Jackson. At the young age of 11, Jackson became a star as frontman for his family's group The Jackson 5, which went on to become one of Motown's all-time selling artists. "It's like a dream, a bad dream," Gordy said, speaking from his Bel Air home late on Thursday afternoon, just hours after getting word of Jackson's death. "He was like my son, he had warmth, sensitivity and two personalities." Gordy sat in a den surrounded by dozens of photos of himself with Motown and other notables. Gordy said he was at first reluctant to sign The Jackson 5 to his label, coming off the complications of dealing with another one-time child star, Stevie Wonder. But he was impressed by young Michael. "He always wanted to be the best and was willing to work as hard as it took to be that," Gordy recalled. By the late 70s, both Michael Jackson and his brothers parted professional ways with Gordy, who was hoping they'd nonetheless reunite for a 25th-anniversary Motown celebration. Jackson's "Motown 25" performance of "Billie Jean" would help propel Jackson to his all-time popularity, with the best-selling "Thriller" album, and his being crowned the "King of Pop." Jackson would eventually be dethroned, both in terms of record sales and image. In recent years, he battled a variety of health issues. "I was always concerned about his health even when people felt that he wasn't as sick as he really was," said 79-year old Gordy. "I was always telling him to take care of himself." Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music's premier all-around performer, a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage. His 1982 album "Thriller," which included the blockbuster hits "Beat It," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller," is the best-selling album of all time, with an estimated 50 million copies sold worldwide. He was perhaps the most exciting performer of his generation, known for his feverish, crotch-grabbing dance moves and his high-pitched voice punctuated with squeals and titters. His single sequined glove, tight, military-style jacket and aviator sunglasses were trademarks second only to his ever-changing, surgically altered appearance. Jackson ranked alongside Elvis Presley and the Beatles as the biggest pop sensations of all time. He united two of music's biggest names when he was briefly married to Presley's daughter, Lisa Marie, and Jackson's death immediately evoked that of Presley himself, who died at age 42 in 1977. As years went by, Jackson became an increasingly freakish figure, a middle-aged man-child weirdly out of touch with grown-up life. His skin became lighter, his nose narrower, and he spoke in a breathy, girlish voice. He surrounded himself with children at his Neverland ranch, often wore a germ mask while travelling and kept a pet chimpanzee named Bubbles as one of his closest companions. Jackson married Lisa Marie Presley in 1994, and they divorced in 1996. Later that year, Jackson married Deborah Rowe, a former nurse for his dermatologist. They had two children together: Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., known as Prince Michael, and Paris Michael Katherine Jackson. Rowe filed for divorce in 1999.

Young boy dressed as Michael Jackson STORYLINE Michael Jackson, the sensationally gifted child star who rose to become the "King of Pop" and the biggest celebrity in the world only to fall from his throne in a freakish series of scandals, has died. He was 50. Jackson died on Thursday at UCLA Medical Centre after being stricken at his rented home in the Holmby Hills section of Los Angeles. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his home for nearly three-quarters of an hour, then rushed him to the hospital, where doctors continued to work on him. His brother Jermaine said it is believed he suffered cardiac arrest in his home. However, he said the cause of his death "is unknown until results of the autopsy are known." Jermaine Jackson said his brother's personal doctor and paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his rented home in Holmby Hills. A team of doctors at UCLA Medical Centre also tried for more than an hour, Jermaine said. Los Angeles police Lieutenant Gregg Strenk said at a separate news conference that police robbery-homicide detectives have been ordered to investigate, which is common in a high-profile case. Strenk said the coroner's office, which will handle inquiries into the type of death, is taking possession of the body. Across the United States, people reacted in stunned disbelief as word spread of Jackson's death. Within minutes of Jackson's arrival by ambulance at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Centre people began arriving by the hundreds, the crowd quickly filling a grassy entrance outside the hospital. Overhead, news helicopters whirred noisily and TV trucks clogged streets. Hundreds of people gathered outside the hospital as word of his death spread. The emergency entrance at the medical centre, which is near Jackson's rented home, was roped off with police tape. As word spread a few minutes later that Jackson had died, several people burst into tears. Others stood silently, looking pensive, as they waited for official word from the hospital. Angela, one of the fans gathered outside the medical centre, said Jackson's death would affect an entire generation. Another fan in tears said she was in disbelief. A similar scene played out just a couple miles away, in front of Jackson's tony Holmby Hills home, where a Fire Department ambulance had arrived earlier to take him to the hospital. Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music's premier all-around performer, a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage. His 1982 album "Thriller," which included the blockbuster hits "Beat It," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller," is the best-selling album of all time, with an estimated 50 million copies sold worldwide. He was perhaps the most exciting performer of his generation, known for his feverish, crotch-grabbing dance moves and his high-pitched voice punctuated with squeals and titters. His single sequined glove, tight, military-style jacket and aviator sunglasses were trademarks second only to his ever-changing, surgically altered appearance. Jackson ranked alongside Elvis Presley and the Beatles as the biggest pop sensations of all time. He united two of music's biggest names when he was briefly married to Presley's daughter, Lisa Marie, and Jackson's death immediately evoked that of Presley himself, who died at age 42 in 1977. As years went by, Jackson became an increasingly freakish figure, a middle-aged man-child weirdly out of touch with grown-up life. His skin became lighter, his nose narrower, and he spoke in a breathy, girlish voice. He surrounded himself with children at his Neverland ranch, often wore a germ mask while travelling and kept a pet chimpanzee named Bubbles as one of his closest companions.

Elsewhere, fans expressed their sorrow across Latin America and in Asia, where he was especially popular. Fans in Japan, South Korea, China, Hong Kong and the Philippines woke on Friday to the news of Jackson's death and spoke of their shock and sadness. Takeo Kawamura, the Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary, said he was "sorry" that Jackson has passed away. Jackson died at UCLA Medical Centre in Los Angeles. Ed Winter, the assistant chief coroner for Los Angeles County, confirmed his office had been notified of the death and would handle the investigation. The circumstances of Jackson's death were not immediately clear. Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage. His 1982 album "Thriller" - which included the blockbuster hits "beat It," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller" - is the best-selling album of all time, with an estimated 50 (m) million copies sold worldwide.

US actress Brooke Shields crying as she walks at airport STORYLINE: Fans formed a prayer circle in the front yard of Michael Jackson's modest childhood home on Thursday and hundreds more crowded the street after word spread that the "King of Pop" had died. Stuffed teddy bears and roses were left on the porch of the small white frame house in Gary, Louisiana, where Jackson grew up, which now sits empty, as neighbours gathered to light candles and pen notes of condolence. Jackson was born the seventh of nine children in Gary on August 19, 1958. He was 11 years old when the family moved out of the city after the Jackson 5 recorded their first album in 1969. Gordon Keith signed the Jackson Five to his Gary-based Steeltown Records in 1967. Decades later he sued Jackson family members over the rights to their early recordings with Steeltown. Keith, who still lives in Gary, recorded the Jacksons' first record, a 45 with side one "Big Boy" and flip side "You've Changed" released in 1967. Michael Jackson was 7 or 8 at the time. The Jackson 5 played two concerts at West Side High School in 1971, but Michael Jackson did not return to Gary until June 2003. It was his last trip to his hometown. Meanwhile in New York, people gathered outside the Apollo Theatre, where Michael Jackson performed as a child. At the Apollo, where Jackson first performed with his brothers at age 9 in 1969, the billboard was cleared for the message, "In Memory of Michael Jackson. A True Apollo Legend." About a dozen people danced outside the theatre to Jackson's music, with a boom box blaring "Don't Stop 'til You Get Enough." Traffic stopped in front of the theatre while cars honked. People clutched the singer-dancer's pictures, played his music and tries to imitate his signature moonwalk moves.

He surrounded himself with children at his Neverland ranch, often wore a germ mask while travelling and kept a pet chimpanzee named Bubbles as one of his closest companions. -- APTN APEX 06-26-09 0236EDT ------------------- END -- OF -- ITEM ------------------- AP-APTN-0600: US Jermaine Jackson Friday, 26 June 2009 STORY:US Jermaine Jackson- REPLAY Jermaine speaks about brother's death LENGTH: 01:51 FIRST RUN: ready RESTRICTIONS: Check script for details TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: Pool STORY NUMBER: 610863 DATELINE: Los Angeles, 25 June 2009 LENGTH: 01:51 Pool Los Angeles - 25 June 2009 1.

Group of students STORYLINE: Throngs of people gathered at New York's Times Square on Thursday, stunned by the news on big screens that the "King of Pop", Michael Jackson had died. Gasps could be heard as newcomers read newsflashes that Jackson was believed to have died of a heart attack at age 50. People could be seen relaying the news to friends and family, making calls and sending text messages. Some in the crowd danced to Jackson's song and called his name. Others stood in stunned disbelief. "I will always remember being in Times Square when Michael Jackson died," Michael Harris told AP Television. At the Apollo Theatre in New York, where Jackson first performed with his brothers at age 9 in 1969, the billboard was cleared for the message, "In Memory of Michael Jackson. A True Apollo Legend." The Rev. Al Sharpton spoke to a crowd outside the theatre, many of whom clutched Jackson's pictures, played his music and imitated the singer-dancer's signature moonwalk moves. The civil rights leader remembered how Jackson called him in the middle of the night to ask to view James Brown's body after the soul legend's death in 2006. He said he last spoke with him a few months ago. In Washington DC people reacted with sadness. A tourist from Texas, Helen Moyo, described the news as "devastating." "He's one of those people that you never thought of dying so soon," she said. Jackson, the former child star who became known the world over as the "King of Pop" before his life and career deteriorated in a freakish series of scandals, died on Thursday in a Los Angeles hospital, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press. The person was not authorised to speak publicly and requested anonymity. The circumstances of his death were not immediately clear. Jackson was not breathing when Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to a call at his Los Angeles home, Captain Steve Ruda told the Los Angeles Times. The paramedics tried to resuscitate him and took him to UCLA Medical Centre, Ruda told the newspaper. Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music's premier all-around performer, a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage. He was perhaps the most exciting performer of his generation, known for his feverish, crotch-grabbing dance moves, his high-pitched voice punctuated with squeals and titters. His single sequined glove and tight, military-style jacket were trademarks second only to his ever-changing, surgically altered appearance. Over the years, his skin became lighter and his nose narrower.

HUNDREDS OF MICHAEL JACKSON FANS CONVERGE ON HOSPITAL Within minutes of Jackson's arrival by ambulance at UCLA Medical Center people began arriving by the hundreds, the crowd quickly filling a grassy entrance outside the hospital. As word spread that Jackson had been pronounced dead, several people burst into tears. Others simply stood in disbelief. Still others whipped out cell phones and began calling or texting friends. During Los Angeles' notoriously slow-paced rush-hour commute, Jackson's music could be heard blaring from several cars along busy Wilshire Boulevard. As the crowd at the hospital increased by the minute, police and security officers in plainclothes quickly blocked off entrances. When word spread that a news conference was scheduled for a hospital auditorium hundreds of people tried to rush in and police had to quickly shut it down. Jackson, the 'King of Pop' who once moonwalked above the music world, died Thursday (25JUN09) as he prepared for a comeback bid to vanquish nightmare years of sexual scandal and financial calamity. He was 50. Jackson died at UCLA Medical Center after being stricken at his rented home in Holmby Hills. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his home for nearly three-quarters of an hour, then rushed him to the hospital, where doctors continued to work on him.

Undated still image: Berry Gordy and Michael Jackson 18. Still image: Berry Gordy at press conference GORDY REMEMBERS JACKSON Motown Record Corporation founder Berry Gordy said he was shocked at the passing of pop star Michael Jackson, who died Thursday at age 50. At just age 11, Jackson became a star as frontman for his family's group The Jackson 5, which went on to become one of Motown's all-time selling artists. "It's like a dream, a bad dream," Gordy said, in a press conference at his Bel Air home late Thursday afternoon, just hours after getting word of Jackson's death. "He was so much like a son to me. It's just hard to realise that Michael Jackson is not here." Gordy sat in a den surrounded by dozens of photos of himself with Motown and other notables. "There is a picture back there where we played baseball every week when Michael was a kid," Gordy noted. "He was a catcher and my son was the pitcher, and they're back there doing it together. He just grew up under the Motown banner. And while most people think he had no fun in his childhood, he did a lot that brought joy to him." Gordy said he was at first reluctant to sign The Jackson 5 to his label, coming off the complications of dealing with another one-time child star, Stevie Wonder. But he was impressed by young Michael. "He always wanted to be the best and was willing to work as hard as it took to be that," Gordy recalled. "And we could all see that he was a winner at that age. I've believed that winners are winners long before they win and picking them out before they win was very easy with Michael Jackson." By the late '70s, both Michael Jackson and his brothers parted professional ways with Gordy, who was hoping they'd nonetheless reunite for a 25th-anniversary Motown celebration. "We were doing the TV show and the word came back that he couldn't do it because he was doing too much television," Gordy said. "I called Michael up and I said 'Michael, I know you and you know me and this television is not a television show. It is Motown 25.' and he said 'I'll be there.' He came there and then he did the moonwalk." Jackson's "Motown 25" performance of "Billie Jean" would help propel Jackson to his all-time popularity, with the best-selling "Thriller" album, and his being crowned the "King of Pop." Jackson would eventually be dethroned, both in terms of record sales and image. In recent years, he battled a variety of health issues. "I've been concerned about it all the time," said Gordy, 79. "I've always been concerned about it. In fact, I was always concerned about his health even when people felt that he wasn't as sick as he really was. But I always felt that he had problems and I would always -- I'm into health myself, so I was telling always to take care of himself, do things that would change his lifestyle from a health standpoint." "Michael was and will remain one of the greatest entertainers that ever lived," Gordy concluded. "One of the greatest entertainers that ever, ever lived."

Jackson, who was 50, died at UCLA Medical Centre in Los Angeles. Ed Winter, the assistant chief coroner for Los Angeles County, confirmed his office had been notified of the death and would handle the investigation. The circumstances of Jackson's death were not immediately clear. Jackson was not breathing when Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to a call at his Los Angeles home about 12:30 p.m., Capt. Steve Ruda told the Los Angeles Times. TV crews from Hollywood TV took video of the paramedics leaving Jackson's home. The paramedics performed CPR and took him to UCLA Medical Centre, Ruda told the newspaper. Hundreds of people gathered outside the hospital as word of his death spread. The emergency entrance at the UCLA Medical Centre, which is near Jackson's rented home, was roped off with police tape. Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music's premier all-around performer, a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage.

Takeo Kawamura, the Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary, said he was "sorry" that Jackson has passed away. Jackson died at UCLA Medical Centre in Los Angeles. Ed Winter, the assistant chief coroner for Los Angeles County, confirmed his office had been notified of the death and would handle the investigation. The circumstances of Jackson's death were not immediately clear. Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage. His 1982 album "Thriller" - which included the blockbuster hits "beat It," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller" - is the best-selling album of all time, with an estimated 50 (m) million copies sold worldwide. He was perhaps the most exciting performer of his generation, known for his feverish, crotch-grabbing dance moves and his high-pitched voice punctuated with squeals and titters. Jackson ranked alongside Elvis Presley and the Beatles as the biggest pop sensations of all time. He united two of music's biggest names when he was briefly married to Presley's daughter, Lisa Marie. As years went by, Jackson became an increasingly freakish figure - a middle-aged man-child weirdly out of touch with grown-up life. His skin became lighter, his nose narrower, and he spoke in a breathy, girlish voice. He surrounded himself with children at his Neverland ranch, often wore a germ mask while travelling and kept a pet chimpanzee named Bubbles as one of his closest companions. Jackson was preparing for what was to be his greatest comeback: He was scheduled for an unprecedented 50 shows at a London arena, with the first set for July 13.

Paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his home for nearly three-quarters of an hour, then rushed him to the hospital, where doctors continued to work on him. His brother Jermaine said it is believed he suffered cardiac arrest in his home. However, he said the cause of his death "is unknown until results of the autopsy are known." Jermaine Jackson said his brother's personal doctor and paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his rented home in Holmby Hills. A team of doctors at UCLA Medical Centre also tried for more than an hour, Jermaine said. Los Angeles police Lieutenant Gregg Strenk said at a separate news conference that police robbery-homicide detectives have been ordered to investigate, which is common in a high-profile case. Strenk said the coroner's office, which will handle inquiries into the type of death, is taking possession of the body. Across the United States, people reacted in stunned disbelief as word spread of Jackson's death. Within minutes of Jackson's arrival by ambulance at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Centre people began arriving by the hundreds, the crowd quickly filling a grassy entrance outside the hospital. Overhead, news helicopters whirred noisily and TV trucks clogged streets. Hundreds of people gathered outside the hospital as word of his death spread. The emergency entrance at the medical centre, which is near Jackson's rented home, was roped off with police tape. As word spread a few minutes later that Jackson had died, several people burst into tears. Others stood silently, looking pensive, as they waited for official word from the hospital. Angela, one of the fans gathered outside the medical centre, said Jackson's death would affect an entire generation. Another fan in tears said she was in disbelief. A similar scene played out just a couple miles away, in front of Jackson's tony Holmby Hills home, where a Fire Department ambulance had arrived earlier to take him to the hospital. Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music's premier all-around performer, a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage. His 1982 album "Thriller," which included the blockbuster hits "Beat It," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller," is the best-selling album of all time, with an estimated 50 million copies sold worldwide. He was perhaps the most exciting performer of his generation, known for his feverish, crotch-grabbing dance moves and his high-pitched voice punctuated with squeals and titters. His single sequined glove, tight, military-style jacket and aviator sunglasses were trademarks second only to his ever-changing, surgically altered appearance. Jackson ranked alongside Elvis Presley and the Beatles as the biggest pop sensations of all time. He united two of music's biggest names when he was briefly married to Presley's daughter, Lisa Marie, and Jackson's death immediately evoked that of Presley himself, who died at age 42 in 1977. As years went by, Jackson became an increasingly freakish figure, a middle-aged man-child weirdly out of touch with grown-up life. His skin became lighter, his nose narrower, and he spoke in a breathy, girlish voice. He surrounded himself with children at his Neverland ranch, often wore a germ mask while travelling and kept a pet chimpanzee named Bubbles as one of his closest companions.

Wide of blast site with onlookers standing STORYLINE : A booby-trapped motorcycle loaded with nails and ball-bearings exploded in a crowded bazaar in Baghdad on Friday, killing at least 15 people and wounding dozens, Iraqi officials said. It was the latest in a week of attacks that have killed more than 200 people ahead of next week's deadline for US troops to withdraw from urban areas in Iraq. The explosion occurred just after 9 a.m. (0600 GMT) when the market was packed with young people buying or selling motorcycles in central Baghdad, according to police and hospital officials. Nobody admitted the attack, but insurgents frequently target crowded market districts to try to maximise casualties. The motorcycle bazaar is only open on Fridays. The market has been hit by several bombings in the past, but Iraqis had resumed flocking to the area due to a sharp drop in violence. Attacks have continued on a daily basis despite the security gains of the past two years, but the recent bombings have been larger in terms of numbers killed. A medical assistant at one of the hospitals where the victims were taken, who identified himself as Abu Mohammed, said many of the wounded people had been struck by nails and ball-bearings and suffered severe burns. Police and hospital officials, who gave the death toll on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorised to release the information, said more than 50 people also were wounded. The escalation in violence is overshadowing Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's declaration of a "great victory" in the US pullout from urban areas by Tuesday's deadline. He has declared June 30 a national holiday to be marked with celebrations. US and Iraqi officials have warned they expect more violence in the days surrounding the deadline but insist the withdrawal will go ahead as scheduled. Under a security pact, the Americans must pull back from cities by June 30 and from the entire country by the end of 2011. But the continued violence has raised concerns about the readiness of Iraqi security forces to protect the people.

SOUNDBITE (Farsi) Ahmed Khatami, member of Assembly of Experts: "In this unrest, Britons have behaved very mischievously and it is fair to add the slogan of 'down with England' to the slogan of 'down with USA'." 9. Pan of Friday prayer ceremony STORYLINE A senior Iranian cleric called on Friday for harsh punishment for leaders of the country's post-election protests, even as a G8 foreign ministers meeting in Italy urged Iran's rulers to seek a peaceful resolution to the tense two-week confrontation over the disputed presidential vote. Iran's ruling clergy has widened its clampdown on the opposition, led by presidential candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi, who says he is the rightful election winner. Hundreds have been detained and according to state media 17 have been killed since the June 12 vote, in which President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was proclaimed the winner. In the latest sign that the regime is not bending, Ayatollah Ahmed Khatami, a senior cleric, said during a nationally broadcast sermon on Friday that the government should punish the "leaders of the protest, who are backed by the United States and Israel, strongly and with cruelty." In his sermon at Tehran University, Khatami also accused foreign journalists of false reporting on post-election Iran. He alleged that an icon of the protests, Neda Agha Soltan, was killed by protesters, not by Iranian security forces quelling unrest. "All the proof and evidence shows that they (protesters) have done it (killing of Neda Agha Soltan) themselves and then have raised propaganda against the system," he said of Soltan, who was shot to death a week ago. Soltan, 27, who was shot dead on a Tehran street, and grainy videotape that captured her bleeding to death was viewed by (m) millions on YouTube, has become an undisputed icon in the bloody struggle between Iran's ruling clerics and opposition protesters challenging the regime over the presidential election they contend was rigged. Basij militiamen have broken up even small groups of people walking together to prevent any possible gathering. Still, dozens of friends and relatives of Soltan managed to pay tribute on Friday, arriving at Tehran's Behesht-e Zahra cemetery in groups of two and three, uttering brief prayers, placing flowers on Soltan's grave and then leaving, witnesses said. Vigils for Soltan have been held around the world. During the Friday prayers, Khatami also singled out Britain for new criticism. "In this unrest, Britons have behaved very mischievously and it is fair to add the slogan of 'down with England' to the slogan of 'down with USA'," he said. Iran's rulers have accused the West, which has become increasingly vocal in its condemnation of the post-election clampdown, of meddling in Iran's internal affairs. Earlier this week, Iran expelled two British diplomat, prompting the expulsion of two Iranian diplomats by Britain. Iran has been restricting international news agencies from reporting events related to the recent election. AP Television applied to cover Friday Prayers in Tehran and authorities granted the request to do so.

Wide of the USS Arleigh Burke's deck STORYLINE: Fans on Friday reacted to the death of one of the world's most iconic pop idols, Michael Jackson. Jackson, defined in equal parts as the world's greatest entertainer and perhaps its most enigmatic figure, was about to attempt one of the greatest comebacks of all time. The 50-year-old musical superstar suffered a cardiac arrest and died on Thursday, just as he was preparing for what would have been a series of 50 concerts starting July 13 at London's famed 02 arena. The news stunned nearly everyone, from the young man in Colombia who was named after the King of Pop, to Malaysians who named a soy drink for him, to a generation of people around the world who have tried to moonwalk. Jackson's death on Thursday in California prompted broadcasters from Sydney to Seoul - where the news came early on Friday - to interrupt morning programmes, while fans remembered a "tortured genius" whose squeals and sliding moves captivated a generation and who sparked global trends in music, dance and fashion. France's new culture minister, Frederic Mitterrand, said Jackson's death held "incredible symbolic power." In Paris' streets, grief crossed generations who woke up to the news on Friday morning. At a music shop fans bought his records and said they would remember him "as the best" in the world. In Italy one man said Jackson hadn't left a positive message to new generation but the sadness was still great "because he was a great artist." In London, shocked fans gathered at the Lyric Theatre, where a live show based on Jackson's record-selling album "Thriller" is being performed, and waited for news about refunds for some 750,000 tickets to his sold-out, 50-night run. One man broke down in tears in disbelief at the pop star's death. "At first I thought it was a PR (public relations) stunt," the man said. "Once it was confirmed I was absolutely devastated, I was completely gutted," he added. In Germany, fans at the Madame Tussaud's wax museum signed a condolences book next to a Jackson statue. Stephen Heinze, from Madame Tussauds said despite Jackson's troubled life, his body of work remained and "we still see that people still like taking photos with the statue, and dance the 'Moonwalk' in the exhibition." In Moscow, Russian fans brought flowers and photographs of Jackson to the American Embassy. Admirers of the King of Pop left the numerous mementos on the fence near the Embassy to pay their respects. "It's a pity. I am so sorry. I think not only Russia, but the whole world marks it," said one man. Jackson visited Russia twice - in 1993 and 1996 and both times he was warmly welcomed Tickets to his concerts there were sold out long beforehand. In 1996 the Russian military officers, knowing his passion for various uniforms, presented him with a Russian military uniform and even taught him how to conduct the military orchestra. The passing of the music hero was also marked by US Navy sailors aboard the USS Arleigh Burke on course to the Seychelles. One sailor said his death had "hurt my heart" while another said she felt devastated and the news hadn't quite sunk in yet, because "he is not supposed to die; he is an icon." An autopsy was planned for Friday, though results were not likely to be final until toxicology tests could be completed, a process that could take several days and sometimes weeks. However, if a cause can be determined by the autopsy, they will announce the results, said a Los Angeles County Coroner Investigator. Jackson died at UCLA Medical Centre after being stricken at his rented home in the posh Los Angeles neighbourhood of Holmby Hills. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his home for nearly three-quarters of an hour, then rushed him to the hospital, where doctors continued to work on him. His brother Jermaine said he was believed to have suffered cardiac arrest in his home but the cause of his death was unknown until results of the autopsy were revealed. Cardiac arrest is an abnormal heart rhythm that stops the heart from pumping blood to the body. It can occur after a heart attack or be caused by other heart problems. Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music's premier all-around performer, a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage. His 1982 album "Thriller" - which included the blockbuster hits "Beat It," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller" - is the best-selling album of all time, with an estimated 50 million copies sold worldwide.

Young boy dressed as Michael Jackson STORYLINE Michael Jackson, the sensationally gifted child star who rose to become the "King of Pop" and the biggest celebrity in the world only to fall from his throne in a freakish series of scandals, has died. He was 50. Jackson died on Thursday at UCLA Medical Centre after being stricken at his rented home in the Holmby Hills section of Los Angeles. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his home for nearly three-quarters of an hour, then rushed him to the hospital, where doctors continued to work on him. His brother Jermaine said it is believed he suffered cardiac arrest in his home. However, he said the cause of his death "is unknown until results of the autopsy are known." Jermaine Jackson said his brother's personal doctor and paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his rented home in Holmby Hills. A team of doctors at UCLA Medical Centre also tried for more than an hour, Jermaine said. Los Angeles police Lieutenant Gregg Strenk said at a separate news conference that police robbery-homicide detectives have been ordered to investigate, which is common in a high-profile case. Strenk said the coroner's office, which will handle inquiries into the type of death, is taking possession of the body. Across the United States, people reacted in stunned disbelief as word spread of Jackson's death. Within minutes of Jackson's arrival by ambulance at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Centre people began arriving by the hundreds, the crowd quickly filling a grassy entrance outside the hospital. Overhead, news helicopters whirred noisily and TV trucks clogged streets. Hundreds of people gathered outside the hospital as word of his death spread. The emergency entrance at the medical centre, which is near Jackson's rented home, was roped off with police tape. As word spread a few minutes later that Jackson had died, several people burst into tears. Others stood silently, looking pensive, as they waited for official word from the hospital. Angela, one of the fans gathered outside the medical centre, said Jackson's death would affect an entire generation. Another fan in tears said she was in disbelief. A similar scene played out just a couple miles away, in front of Jackson's tony Holmby Hills home, where a Fire Department ambulance had arrived earlier to take him to the hospital. Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music's premier all-around performer, a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage. His 1982 album "Thriller," which included the blockbuster hits "Beat It," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller," is the best-selling album of all time, with an estimated 50 million copies sold worldwide. He was perhaps the most exciting performer of his generation, known for his feverish, crotch-grabbing dance moves and his high-pitched voice punctuated with squeals and titters. His single sequined glove, tight, military-style jacket and aviator sunglasses were trademarks second only to his ever-changing, surgically altered appearance. Jackson ranked alongside Elvis Presley and the Beatles as the biggest pop sensations of all time. He united two of music's biggest names when he was briefly married to Presley's daughter, Lisa Marie, and Jackson's death immediately evoked that of Presley himself, who died at age 42 in 1977. As years went by, Jackson became an increasingly freakish figure, a middle-aged man-child weirdly out of touch with grown-up life. His skin became lighter, his nose narrower, and he spoke in a breathy, girlish voice. He surrounded himself with children at his Neverland ranch, often wore a germ mask while travelling and kept a pet chimpanzee named Bubbles as one of his closest companions.

Various of fans holding signs at vigil outside hospital ABC - NO ACCESS NORTH AMERICA / INTERNET Los Angeles, California - 25 June 2009 22. Various aerial shots of fans outside hospital, with large banner reading "Michael Jackson is innocent" STORYLINE Fans stunned by the news of Michael Jackson's death were gathering all around the Los Angeles area, trying to cope with their grief and pay their respects. Jackson's body was taken to the Los Angeles County's Coroner's office on Thursday for an autopsy. His fans gathered across the street, some holding up signs, asking drivers to honk their horns for Michael. "He has left behind a tremendous legacy that will never be touched again by anybody," said fan Willie Green. On Hollywood's Walk of Fame, fans gathered to pray around a sidewalk star bearing the name "Michael Jackson," but it was the star for a local radio personality of the same name. Jackson's own star, in front of the historic Grauman's Chinese Theatre, was unreachable because of a movie premiere taking place there. After the premiere, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce planned to put flowers on it. Motown Record Corporation founder Berry Gordy said he was shocked at the passing of Jackson. At the young age of 11, Jackson became a star as frontman for his family's group The Jackson 5, which went on to become one of Motown's all-time biggest selling artists. "He was like my son," Gordy said, speaking from his Bel Air home late on Thursday afternoon, just hours after getting word of Jackson's death. Gordy remembers him as a man with two personalities. "When he was not on stage, he was loving, respectful and shy. When he was on stage, he was so in charge, you would not believe this was the same person. A showman from his toes to the top of his head," he said. Gordy recalls he was at first reluctant to sign The Jackson 5 to his label, coming off the complications of dealing with another one-time child star, Stevie Wonder. But he was impressed by young Michael. "He always wanted to be the best and was willing to work as hard as it took to be that," Gordy recalled. By the late 70s, both Michael Jackson and his brothers parted professional ways with Gordy, who was hoping they'd nonetheless reunite for a 25th-anniversary Motown celebration. Jackson's "Motown 25" performance of "Billie Jean" would help propel Jackson to his all-time popularity, with the best-selling "Thriller" album, and his being crowned the "King of Pop." Jackson would eventually be dethroned, both in terms of record sales and image. In recent years, he battled a variety of health issues. A number of friends and people who worked with the King of Pop said they were not surprised by his death. Michael Levine, a Hollywood publicist who represented Jackson in the early 1990s, said he had long thought the star was engaged in self destructive behaviour and that it could "only end in an inevitably bad and tragic way as it did today." "I wasn't surprised by this," he said. Fans could also be seen outside Michael's Jackon's parents house, in the Encino section of Los Angeles, laying flowers and candles, where Michael's father Joe Jackson arrived late at night. Fans also gathered outside the hospital where Jackson died, erecting a huge banner reading "Michael Jackson is innocent". Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music's premier all-around performer, a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage. His 1982 album "Thriller," which included the blockbuster hits "Beat It," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller," is the best-selling album of all time, with an estimated 50 (m) million copies sold worldwide. He was perhaps the most exciting performer of his generation, known for his feverish, crotch-grabbing dance moves and his high-pitched voice punctuated with squeals and titters. His single sequined glove, tight, military-style jacket and aviator sunglasses were trademarks second only to his ever-changing, surgically altered appearance. Jackson ranked alongside Elvis Presley and the Beatles as the biggest pop sensations of all time. He united two of music's biggest names when he was briefly married to Presley's daughter, Lisa Marie, and Jackson's death immediately evoked that of Presley himself, who died at age 42 in 1977.

His skin became lighter, his nose narrower, and he spoke in a breathy, girlish voice. He surrounded himself with children at his Neverland ranch, often wore a germ mask while travelling and kept a pet chimpanzee named Bubbles as one of his closest companions. Jackson married Lisa Marie Presley in 1994, and they divorced in 1996. Later that year, Jackson married Deborah Rowe, a former nurse for his dermatologist. They had two children together: Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., known as Prince Michael, and Paris Michael Katherine Jackson. Rowe filed for divorce in 1999.

Mid of police truck loaded with damaged motorbikes 7. Various of municipality workers cleaning the site 8. Wide of blast site with onlookers standing STORYLINE : A booby-trapped motorcycle loaded with nails and ball-bearings exploded in a crowded bazaar in Baghdad on Friday, killing at least 13 people and wounding dozens, Iraqi officials said. It was the latest in a week of attacks that have killed more than 200 people ahead of next week's deadline for US troops to withdraw from urban areas in Iraq. The explosion occurred just after 9 a.m. (0600 GMT) when the market was packed with young people buying or selling motorcycles in central Baghdad, according to police and hospital officials. Nobody admitted the attack, but insurgents frequently target crowded market districts to try to maximise casualties. The motorcycle bazaar is only open on Fridays. The market has been hit by several bombings in the past, but Iraqis had resumed flocking to the area due to a sharp drop in violence. Attacks have continued on a daily basis despite the security gains of the past two years, but the recent bombings have been larger in terms of numbers killed. A medical assistant at one of the hospitals where the victims were taken, who identified himself as Abu Mohammed, said many of the wounded people had been struck by nails and ball-bearings and suffered severe burns. Police and hospital officials, who gave the death toll on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorised to release the information, said more than 40 people also were wounded. The escalation in violence is overshadowing Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's declaration of a "great victory" in the US pullout from urban areas by Tuesday's deadline. He has declared June 30 a national holiday to be marked with celebrations. US and Iraqi officials have warned they expect more violence in the days surrounding the deadline but insist the withdrawal will go ahead as scheduled. Under a security pact, the Americans must pull back from cities by June 30 and from the entire country by the end of 2011. But the continued violence has raised concerns about the readiness of Iraqi security forces to protect the people.

Exterior of Palazzo della Regione, where meetings are being held STORYLINE Security was tight in the port city of Trieste on Friday where the G8 Foreign Minister's were set to discuss a wide range of global issues from instability in Iran and Afghanistan to North Korea's ambitions. Foreign ministers of Group of Eight countries started their meeting with a working dinner on Thursday, and will end it at midday Saturday. On the agenda is a series of global issues, from counterterrorism to organised crime and piracy. According to the agenda, the leaders were seeking to find a common position on Iran's violent crackdown on protesters. Italy, the host of the meeting, said on Thursday it wanted to send a tough message, but Italian officials in Trieste also stressed the need not to further isolate Iran. Benita Ferrero-Waldner, the EU commissioner for external relations condemned the use of excessive force, and called for dialogue among battling parties within Iran. Italy originally invited Iran to attend the three-day gathering as a special guest, arguing that it could play an important role in stabilising Afghanistan, an important focus of the meeting. But Italy retracted the invitation after Iran failed to respond, and after days of violent clashes with demonstrators protesting Iran's disputed June 12 elections. The Afghan conflict will also be discussed on Friday and Saturday, with US envoy Richard Holbrooke and important regional players, including the foreign ministers of Afghanistan and Pakistan, joining in the discussions on five major points of discussion: border management, drug trafficking, economic development, refugees, and food security. In all, 44 delegations will participate in the meeting of the eight industrial powers, including representatives from the Islamic Development Bank, the International Organisation for Migration and the World Food Program.

Various of people loading ballots and voting material into a truck STORYLINE: The Honduran president vowed on Thursday to ignore a Supreme Court ruling ordering him to reinstate the military chief he fired, escalating a showdown that has threatened the leftist leader's hold on power. President Manuel Zelaya's attempt to hold a referendum on reforming the constitution has pitted him against the country's top courts, the attorney general, military leaders and even his own party. "When the army rebels against the President, we are going back in time to the stone age, we are going back to the darkest days of the Honduran nation," he told his supporters at a rally. "Members of the armed forces, you are part of the people of this country, don't let anybody blackmail you, don't let anybody use you. Step up for this country that is in search of reforms and the change that will go down in history," he added. Zelaya fired General Romeo Vasquez as head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff for refusing to support Sunday's non-binding referendum, but the Supreme Court ordered he be reinstated on Thursday. Zelaya, who sympathises with former Cuban President Fidel Castro and Venezuela's Hugo Chavez, has argued that Honduras' social problems are rooted in the 27-year-old constitution. He has not specified what changes he would seek, but opponents accuse him of wanting to emulate Chavez by expanding presidential powers and allowing himself to run for re-election. The referendum asks voters if they want a formal election on whether to call an assembly to write a new charter. The president's dismissal of Vasquez prompted the chiefs of the army, navy and air force to resign. The president himself announced on Wednesday night that Defence Minister Edmundo Orellana had resigned. Vasquez said he could not support a referendum that the courts had declared illegal, but he ruled out the possibility of a coup. Attorney General Luis Alberto Rubi, who asked the court to reinstate the military chief, is also urging Congress to remove Zelaya from office. Zelaya, a wealthy ranch owner grappling with rising food prices and a sharp spike in drug violence, is currently barred from seeking re-election when his four-year term ends in January.

Pan of theatre entrance STORYLINE People across the world reacted with shock and sadness on Friday to news of Michael Jackson's death in California at the age of 50. Michael Jackson's death on Thursday in California prompted broadcasters from Sydney to Seoul - where the news came early Friday - to interrupt morning programmes, while fans remembered a "tortured genius" whose squeals and sliding moves captivated a generation and who sparked global trends in music, dance and fashion. Japanese fans were always among Jackson's most passionate supporters, and news of his death came as a huge shock. Tower Records' stores across Japan put up a special corner dedicated to Jackson on Friday. In Germany, party goers in Hanover spoke of their sadness at the loss of a musical great. Club DJ Tyron promised to play Jackson's music every night in memory of him. In Paris, early morning commuters couldn't quite believe the "king of pop" was dead. "I didn't think he was dead, are you sure he's dead?" asked one Parisian, Benoit. Another man, Apollinaire Baghnyan, paid tribute to the singer saying that his music "touched people of all age groups and all cultural origins." In Italy one man said despite being a great artist, Jackson "didn't leave a positive message to new generation". And outside London's Lyric theatre, which is currently showing a compilation of Jackson music, one man broke down in tears in disbelief at Jackson's death. "At first I thought it was a PR (public relations) stunt," the man said. "Once it was confirmed I was absolutely devastated, I was completely gutted," he added. Jackson died on Thursday at UCLA Medical Centre after being stricken at his rented home in the Holmby Hills section of Los Angeles. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his home for nearly three-quarters of an hour, then rushed him to the hospital, where doctors tried to revive him. His brother Jermaine says it is believed he suffered a cardiac arrest. However, he says the cause of his death "is unknown until results of the autopsy are known".

Female fan dancing 30. People chanting "Michael Jackson" in front of the Apollo Theatre 31. Apollo Theatre sign STORYLINE Michael Jackson, the sensationally gifted child star who rose to become the "King of Pop" and the biggest celebrity in the world only to fall from his throne in a freakish series of scandals, has died. He was 50. Jackson's family, friends, and fans reacted to his passing with shock, surprise, and sadness. Jackson died on Thursday at UCLA Medical Center after being stricken at his rented home in the Holmby Hills section of Los Angeles. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his home for nearly three-quarters of an hour, then rushed him to the hospital, where doctors continued to work on him. His brother Jermaine says it is believed he suffered cardiac arrest in his home. However, he says the cause of his death "is unknown until results of the autopsy are known." Police are investigating, standard procedure in high-profile cases. Fans formed a prayer circle in the front yard of Michael Jackson's modest childhood home on Thursday and hundreds more crowded the street after word spread that the "King of Pop" had died. Stuffed teddy bears and roses were left on the porch of the small white frame house in Gary, Louisiana, where Jackson grew up, which now sits empty, as neighbours gathered to light candles and pen notes of condolence. Jackson was born the seventh of nine children in Gary on August 19, 1958. He was 11 years old when the family moved out of the city after the Jackson 5 recorded their first album in 1969. Gordon Keith signed the Jackson Five to his Gary-based Steeltown Records in 1967. Decades later he sued Jackson family members over the rights to their early recordings with Steeltown. Keith, who still lives in Gary, recorded the Jacksons' first record, a 45 with side one "Big Boy" and flip side "You've Changed" released in 1967. Michael Jackson was 7 or 8 at the time. The Jackson 5 played two concerts at West Side High School in 1971, but Michael Jackson did not return to Gary until June 2003. It was his last trip to his hometown. Jackson's death was also the talk of a red carpet event in New York City Thursday evening. Actress and comedienne Rosie Perez said it was a sad day. Jackson family friend Rashida Jones said Jackson simply was "the greatest." Leonard Rowe, a former manager for Jackson, said he thought something like this might happen. "I felt it was coming. I felt something like this was coming, but there wasn't an intervention," said Rowe, whose home is covered in pictures of Jackson as a young man and entertainer. Rowe blamed what he called "the evils of the entertainment industry" which cared only for "his profitability, not about his health and well being." Jesse Jackson Junior noted that the pop star had recently lost a lot of weight and was struggling financially because his "business was under attack." Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music's premier all-around performer, a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage. His 1982 album "Thriller," which included the blockbuster hits "Beat It," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller," is the best-selling album of all time, with an estimated 50 (m) million copies sold worldwide. He was perhaps the most exciting performer of his generation, known for his feverish, crotch-grabbing dance moves and his high-pitched voice punctuated with squeals and titters. As years went by, Jackson became an increasingly freakish figure, a middle-aged man-child weirdly out of touch with grown-up life. His skin became lighter, his nose narrower, and he spoke in a breathy, girlish voice. He surrounded himself with children at his Neverland ranch, often wore a germ mask while travelling and kept a pet chimpanzee named Bubbles as one of his closest companions. Jackson also faced allegations of child abuse. He was first accused of molesting a 13-year-old boy in 1993; no charges were ever filed, a civil lawsuit was settled out of court and he always maintained his innocence. Although he had a chart-topping album with "HIStory" in 1995 and was still a superstar, he was a damaged one - and would never fully recover from the allegation. A criminal charge of molestation of another young boy in 2004, which resulted in his acquittal in 2005, further stripped his marketability and his legacy; after the trial ended, he went into seclusion, and while top hitmakers from Ne-Yo to Akon courted him to make new music, no new CD was ever released. Illusionist Uri Geller, a close friend of Jackson's, insisted he was innocent, saying he knew so by questioning Jackson while he was hypnotised. "I asked him 'Did you ever touch a child in an inappropriate way?' and he immediately answered: 'No, I would never do that!' and then I asked him 'Why did you pay off Jodie Chandler millions?', he said 'I couldn't take it anymore. I had enough'," claimed Geller. This "tragic trauma" and stress "got to him finally," Geller said. He went on to say that Michael Jackson would live on forever through his musical legacy and his fans, who have been filling the streets in cities across the US to pay tribute to their beloved star. At the Apollo Theatre in New York City, where Jackson first performed with his brothers at age 9 in 1969, the billboard was cleared for the message, "In Memory of Michael Jackson. A True Apollo Legend." About a dozen people danced outside the theatre to Jackson's music, with a boom box blaring "Don't Stop 'til You Get Enough." Traffic stopped in front of the theatre while cars honked. People clutched the singer-dancer's pictures, played his music and tries to imitate his signature moonwalk moves.

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

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

Various of people loading ballots and voting material into a truck STORYLINE: The Honduran president vowed on Thursday to ignore a Supreme Court ruling ordering him to reinstate the military chief he fired, escalating a showdown that has threatened the leftist leader's hold on power. President Manuel Zelaya's attempt to hold a referendum on reforming the constitution has pitted him against the country's top courts, the attorney general, military leaders and even his own party. "When the army rebels against the President, we are going back in time to the stone age, we are going back to the darkest days of the Honduran nation," he told his supporters at a rally. "Members of the armed forces, you are part of the people of this country, don't let anybody blackmail you, don't let anybody use you. Step up for this country that is in search of reforms and the change that will go down in history," he added. Zelaya fired General Romeo Vasquez as head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff for refusing to support Sunday's non-binding referendum, but the Supreme Court ordered he be reinstated on Thursday. Zelaya, who sympathises with former Cuban President Fidel Castro and Venezuela's Hugo Chavez, has argued that Honduras' social problems are rooted in the 27-year-old constitution. He has not specified what changes he would seek, but opponents accuse him of wanting to emulate Chavez by expanding presidential powers and allowing himself to run for re-election. The referendum asks voters if they want a formal election on whether to call an assembly to write a new charter. The president's dismissal of Vasquez prompted the chiefs of the army, navy and air force to resign. The president himself announced on Wednesday night that Defence Minister Edmundo Orellana had resigned. Vasquez said he could not support a referendum that the courts had declared illegal, but he ruled out the possibility of a coup. Attorney General Luis Alberto Rubi, who asked the court to reinstate the military chief, is also urging Congress to remove Zelaya from office. Zelaya, a wealthy ranch owner grappling with rising food prices and a sharp spike in drug violence, is currently barred from seeking re-election when his four-year term ends in January.

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

Young boy dressed as Michael Jackson STORYLINE Michael Jackson, the sensationally gifted child star who rose to become the "King of Pop" and the biggest celebrity in the world only to fall from his throne in a freakish series of scandals, has died. He was 50. Jackson died on Thursday at UCLA Medical Centre after being stricken at his rented home in the Holmby Hills section of Los Angeles. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his home for nearly three-quarters of an hour, then rushed him to the hospital, where doctors continued to work on him. His brother Jermaine said it is believed he suffered cardiac arrest in his home. However, he said the cause of his death "is unknown until results of the autopsy are known." Jermaine Jackson said his brother's personal doctor and paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his rented home in Holmby Hills. A team of doctors at UCLA Medical Centre also tried for more than an hour, Jermaine said. Los Angeles police Lieutenant Gregg Strenk said at a separate news conference that police robbery-homicide detectives have been ordered to investigate, which is common in a high-profile case. Strenk said the coroner's office, which will handle inquiries into the type of death, is taking possession of the body. Across the United States, people reacted in stunned disbelief as word spread of Jackson's death. Within minutes of Jackson's arrival by ambulance at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Centre people began arriving by the hundreds, the crowd quickly filling a grassy entrance outside the hospital. Overhead, news helicopters whirred noisily and TV trucks clogged streets. Hundreds of people gathered outside the hospital as word of his death spread. The emergency entrance at the medical centre, which is near Jackson's rented home, was roped off with police tape. As word spread a few minutes later that Jackson had died, several people burst into tears. Others stood silently, looking pensive, as they waited for official word from the hospital. Angela, one of the fans gathered outside the medical centre, said Jackson's death would affect an entire generation. Another fan in tears said she was in disbelief. A similar scene played out just a couple miles away, in front of Jackson's tony Holmby Hills home, where a Fire Department ambulance had arrived earlier to take him to the hospital. Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music's premier all-around performer, a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage. His 1982 album "Thriller," which included the blockbuster hits "Beat It," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller," is the best-selling album of all time, with an estimated 50 million copies sold worldwide. He was perhaps the most exciting performer of his generation, known for his feverish, crotch-grabbing dance moves and his high-pitched voice punctuated with squeals and titters. His single sequined glove, tight, military-style jacket and aviator sunglasses were trademarks second only to his ever-changing, surgically altered appearance. Jackson ranked alongside Elvis Presley and the Beatles as the biggest pop sensations of all time. He united two of music's biggest names when he was briefly married to Presley's daughter, Lisa Marie, and Jackson's death immediately evoked that of Presley himself, who died at age 42 in 1977. As years went by, Jackson became an increasingly freakish figure, a middle-aged man-child weirdly out of touch with grown-up life. His skin became lighter, his nose narrower, and he spoke in a breathy, girlish voice. He surrounded himself with children at his Neverland ranch, often wore a germ mask while travelling and kept a pet chimpanzee named Bubbles as one of his closest companions.

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

"He drank their love. He knew how to absorb their affection; the energy that they were emitting to him." Elsewhere, fans expressed their sorrow across Latin America and in Asia, where he was especially popular. Fans in Japan, South Korea, China, Hong Kong and the Philippines woke on Friday to the news of Jackson's death and spoke of their shock and sadness. Jackson died at UCLA Medical Centre in Los Angeles. Ed Winter, the assistant chief coroner for Los Angeles County, confirmed his office had been notified of the death and would handle the investigation. The circumstances of Jackson's death were not immediately clear. Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage. His 1982 album "Thriller" - which included the blockbuster hits "beat It," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller" - is the best-selling album of all time, with an estimated 50 (m) million copies sold worldwide. He was perhaps the most exciting performer of his generation, known for his feverish, crotch-grabbing dance moves and his high-pitched voice punctuated with squeals and titters.

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

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

Mid shot sign STORYLINE: Police investigating Michael Jackson's death were looking for one of the pop king's doctors after seizing a car that they said may contain drugs or other evidence. As medical examiners began an autopsy for Jackson, police towed a BMW from rented home "because it may contain medications or other evidence that may assist the coroner in determining the cause of death," a police spokeswoman said. She said the car belongs to one of Jackson's doctors whom police wanted to interview. Rayner said she did not know the doctor's identity and stressed the doctor was not under criminal investigation. The autopsy began on Friday morning and was expected to last several hours. An official determination on cause of death was not expected for weeks or longer, until more sophisticated tests are completed. In a transcript of the emergency call released by fire officials, a caller reports Jackson was on a bed and not breathing or responding to cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The unidentified caller said Jackson only was with his personal doctor at the time. The pop star died later on Thursday afternoon at University of California Los Angeles Medical Centre. As stores reported they were inundated with orders for Jackson's music, a chorus of grief for the megastar spread around the world, from statesmen to icons of music to legions of heartbroken fans. Diana Ross, who helped launch Jackson's career, said she couldn't stop crying at the sudden and shocking death. Lisa Marie Presley, briefly married to the pop icon in the mid-1990s, said he had confided to her 14 years ago that he worried about facing the same tragic fate as her father, Elvis Presley, who died of a drug overdose at age 42. "The world is in shock but somehow he knew exactly how his fate would be played out some day more than anyone else knew, and he was right," she wrote in a long, emotional statement on her MySpace page online. The White House also weighed in for the first time, with a spokesman saying President Barack Obama saw Jackson as a spectacular performer and music icon whose life nonetheless had sad and tragic aspects. The House of Representatives observed a moment of silence. Brian Oxman, a former Jackson attorney and a family friend, said Friday he had been concerned about Jackson's use of painkillers and had warned the singer's family about possible abuse. Oxman claimed Jackson had prescription drugs at his disposal to help with pain suffered when he broke his leg after he fell off a stage and for broken vertebrae in his back. After Jackson was acquitted on child molestation charges in 2005, prosecutors argued against returning to Jackson items including syringes, the drug Demerol and prescriptions for various drugs, mainly antibiotics, in different people's names. Jackson died after being stricken at his rented home in the posh Los Angeles neighbourhood of Holmby Hills. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him for three-quarter of an hours there before rushing him to the hospital. His brother Jermaine said Jackson apparently suffered cardiac arrest, an abnormal heart rhythm that stops the heart from pumping blood to the body. It can occur after a heart attack or be caused by other heart problems. Jackson was preparing for a monster comeback bid - a series of 50 concerts that was to begin next month in London. A handful of bleary-eyed fans camped out throughout the night with media outside the Jackson family house in the San Fernando Valley and near his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. People heading to work in New York stopped to pay respects outside Harlem's Apollo Theater, where Jackson performed as a child. A producer said Sunday's BET Awards would be dedicated to Jackson because of his influence on music and pop culture. And a screening of Universal Pictures' "Bruno" in Los Angeles on Thursday night cut a scene involving Jackson's sister La Toya. Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music's premier all-around performer. His 1982 album "Thriller" - which included the blockbuster hits "Beat It," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller" - is the best-selling album of all time worldwide. Yet after selling more than 61 million albums in the U.S. and having a decade-long attraction open at Disney theme parks, Jackson died reportedly awash in about 400 million (m) US dollars in debt, on the cusp of a final comeback after well over a decade of scandal. The public first knew Jackson as a boy in the late 1960s, when he was the precocious, spinning lead singer of the Jackson 5, the singing group he formed with his four older brothers out of Gary, Indiana. Among their No. 1 hits were "I Want You Back," "ABC" and "I'll Be There." He was perhaps the most exciting performer of his generation, known for his backward-gliding moonwalk, his feverish, crotch-grabbing dance moves and his high-pitched singing, punctuated with squeals and titters. His single sequined glove, tight, military-style jacket and aviator sunglasses were trademarks, as was his ever-changing, surgically altered appearance. "For Michael to be taken away from us so suddenly at such a young age, I just don't have the words," said Quincy Jones, who produced "Thriller." "He was the consummate entertainer and his contributions and legacy will be felt upon the world forever. I've lost my little brother today, and part of my soul has gone with him." Jackson ranked alongside Presley and the Beatles as the biggest pop sensations of all time. He united two of music's biggest names when he was briefly married to Presley's daughter, Lisa Marie. Jackson's sudden death immediately evoked comparisons to that of Presley himself, who died at age 42 in 1977. As years went by, Jackson became an increasingly freakish figure - a middle-aged man-child weirdly out of touch with grown-up life. His skin became lighter, his nose narrower, and he spoke in a breathy, girlish voice. He often wore a germ mask while travelling, kept a pet chimpanzee named Bubbles as one of his closest companions and surrounded himself with children at his Neverland ranch, a storybook playland filled with toys, rides and animals. The tabloids dubbed him "Wacko Jacko." After the enormous success of "Thriller," Jackson had strong follow-up albums with 1987's "Bad" and 1991's "Dangerous," but his career began to collapse in 1993 after he was accused of molesting a boy who often stayed at his home. The singer denied any wrongdoing, reached a settlement with the boy's family, reported to be 20 million (m) US dollars, and criminal charges were never filed. Jackson caused a furore in 2002 when he playfully dangled his infant son, Prince Michael II, over a hotel balcony in Berlin while a throng of fans watched from below. In 2005, he was cleared of charges that he molested a 13-year-old cancer survivor at Neverland in 2003. He had been accused of plying the boy with alcohol and groping him, and of engaging in strange and inappropriate behaviour with other children. The case followed years of rumours about Jackson and young boys. In a TV documentary, he acknowledged sharing his bed with children, a practice he described as sweet and not at all sexual. Despite the acquittal, the lurid allegations that came out in court took a fearsome toll on his career and image, and he fell into serious financial trouble. Jackson married Lisa Marie Presley in 1994, and they divorced in 1996. Later that year, Jackson married Deborah Rowe, a former nurse for his dermatologist. They had two children together: Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., known as Prince Michael, now 12; and Paris Michael Katherine Jackson, 11. Rowe filed for divorce in 1999. Jackson also had a third child, Prince Michael II, now 7. Jackson said the boy, nicknamed Blanket as a baby, was his biological child born from a surrogate mother.

Tracking shot over Jackson records and dvds to fan Leandro STORYLINE: People all over Brazil on Friday mourned Michael Jackson's death, recalling his many visits to South America's largest country. In Salvador's historical city centre, people from the band Olodum reminisced about playing drums alongside the the King of Pop during the filming of the 1996 video "They Don't Really Care About Us." More than one-hundred drummers participated in the video, including Jason de Jesus Queiroz, who was twelve at the time. Queiroz told TV Globo he still could not believe the 50-year-old singer was "gone." The video, which was directed by Spike Lee, also used the Rio de Janeiro shantytown Santa Marta as part of the backdrop of the song, which focuses on class inequality and racism. At the time, Santa Marta was controlled by drug gangs, which caused controversy around the filming since local media reported it was authorised by the community's infamous trafficker Marcinho VP. Today, residents in the revitalised community, which was declared drug-free by Rio de Janeiro's state government in 2008, only remember Michael Jackson's kindness and sensibility. "He chose to come here, as opposed to choosing some of Rio de Janeiro's other wonderful sights like Copacabana and the like. He chose to come into our community," DJ and Santa Marta native Thiago Firmino said. The ledge with a view of Rio de Janeiro's mountains and city landscape, where Jackson did most of the filming, is known as "Michael's ledge" within the community. Jackson impersonators gathered on the commemorative space to celebrate the artist's life. Santa Marta residents placed a memorial sash reading "Be with God Michael." Fan and impersonator Antonia Carlos Gomez said she wanted to keep a small piece of him with her always, as she showed off Jackson-inspired dance moves to local and international press. In Sao Paulo, fans gathered to express their sadness at the loss of their idol who had sold out two shows in Morumbi stadium in 1993. Leandro's devotion was printed all over his arms, with several large tattoos of Jackson's likeliness. Fans Kevin and Gustavo Alves were particularly sad because they had been planning to see Jackson in concert in London, for his "This is It" tour this summer. "His music was a source of happiness, love and hope for us all," Alves told TV Globo. Jackson visited South America's largest country three times. His first visit to Brazil was in 1974, when he was still performing with the Jackson 5.

Fans chanting "Michael" STORYLINE: Fans across the world on Friday reacted with shock and sadness to the death of Michael Jackson, one of the world's iconic pop idols. The 50-year-old musical superstar suffered cardiac arrest and died on Thursday, just as he was preparing for what would have been a series of 50 concerts starting July 13 at London's O2 arena. Word of Jackson's death jolted thousands, from Chinese students, to UK fans hoping to see their idol on stage this summer, to a generation of people around the world who have tried, in vain, to moonwalk. The dramatic death of the singer seemed to obscure his recent controversies and kindle warmer memories of Jackson the child star and Jackson the show-stopping, moon-walking headliner. A sombre crowd of about 100 young people gathered in Beijing for a candle lit vigil to mourn the singer's death. Fans arranged candles in the shape of the singer's name, held posters of the pop star and sang his songs. In the French capital Paris, hundreds of Jackson fans gathered in front of Notre Dame Cathedral. They held up his pictures, sang his songs, danced, cried and shouted in grief. Similar scenes took place in both London and Berlin. An autopsy was planned for Friday, though results were not likely to be final until toxicology tests could be completed, a process that could take several days and sometimes weeks. However, if a cause can be determined by the autopsy, they will announce the results, said a Los Angeles County Coroner Investigator. Jackson died at UCLA Medical Centre after being stricken at his rented home in the posh Los Angeles neighbourhood of Holmby Hills. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his home for nearly three-quarters of an hour, then rushed him to the hospital, where doctors continued to work on him. His brother Jermaine said he was believed to have suffered cardiac arrest in his home but the cause of his death was unknown until results of the autopsy were revealed. Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music's premier all-around performer, a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage. His 1982 album "Thriller" - which included the blockbuster hits "Beat It," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller" - is the best-selling album of all time, with an estimated 50 (m) million copies sold worldwide. Jackson's death prompted broadcasters from Sydney to Seoul to interrupt programmes, while fans remembered a "tortured genius" whose squeals and sliding moves captivated a generation and who sparked global trends in music, dance and fashion.

Wide of audience clapping STORYLINE: With backing from Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez, Honduras' leftist president pushed ahead on Friday with a referendum on revamping the constitution, risking his rule in a standoff against Congress, the Supreme Court and the military. Thousands of anti government protestors gathered in the capital Tegucigalpa on Friday and called for the president to step down and many shops, gasoline stations and some schools were closed for fear of disturbances. Meanwhile, government supporters began distributing ballots at 15 thousand voting stations across the country, defying a Supreme Court ruling declaring Sunday's referendum illegal and ordering all election material confiscated. President Manuel Zelaya had led thousands of supporters to rescue the material from an air force warehouse before it could be confiscated. Under Honduran law, soldiers are normally responsible for distributing ballots ahead of elections, but the military leadership has opposed the vote. Zelaya has fired military chief General Romero Vasquez for refusing to support the referendum and vows to ignore a Supreme Court ruling ordering him reinstated. Speaking to journalists on Friday, Vasquez denied that the military was planning a coup against the president, and said they were in fact trying to find a solution to the crisis. Zelaya has the vocal support of his fellow leftist Latin American leaders as he seeks to follow in the path of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez in transforming his country through a constitutional overhaul. The Venezuelan leader and former Cuban President Fidel Castro have warned a coup is under way in Honduras and pledged their support for Zelaya. Zelaya says the constitution protects a system of government that excludes the poor, but has not specified what changes he will seek. Opponents fear he will try to extend his rule by lifting a ban presidential re-election. The showdown between the president and virtually all other circles of power in Honduras has plunged the impoverished Central American state into a political crisis with no solution in sight. Congress, led by members of Zelaya's own Liberal Party, has opened an investigation into his mental stability and could declare him unfit to govern. Zelaya lashed out at Congress late on Thursday for considering his ouster. "What congress is doing is wrong. Congress did not elect the president. The president was elected by the people. I can only be censured by the people, and the people censor me at the polls," he said. In Washington, the Organisation of American States held a session to discuss the situation in Honduras. Sunday's referendum has no legal effect - it merely asks people if they want to have a later vote on whether to convoke an assembly to rewrite the constitution. The Supreme Court, Congress and the Attorney General have all said the referendum he is sponsoring is illegal because the constitution says some of its clauses cannot be changed. The constitution, approved in 1982 as Honduras was throwing off two decades of nearly uninterrupted military rule, states that any politician who promotes presidential re-election will be barred from public service for 10 years. The showdown over Sunday's referendum has all but overshadowed the election campaign, which pits Porfirio Lobo of the opposition National Party against Liberal Party candidate Elvin Santos, who resigned as vice president last year complaining that Zelaya had been trying to sideline him in the government. Zelaya, whose four-year term ends in January, has seen his approval ratings fall over the past year as the country grapples with soaring food prices and a spike in drug violence that has saddled Honduras with one of the highest homicide rates in Latin America. At the same time, Zelaya began promoting the constitutional overhaul and deepened his alliance with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, who has offered Honduras (m) millions of US dollars in agricultural investment.

Mid shot sign STORYLINE: Police investigating Michael Jackson's death were looking for one of the pop king's doctors after seizing a car that they said may contain drugs or other evidence. As medical examiners began an autopsy for Jackson, police towed a BMW from rented home "because it may contain medications or other evidence that may assist the coroner in determining the cause of death," a police spokeswoman said. She said the car belongs to one of Jackson's doctors whom police wanted to interview. Rayner said she did not know the doctor's identity and stressed the doctor was not under criminal investigation. The autopsy began on Friday morning and was expected to last several hours. An official determination on cause of death was not expected for weeks or longer, until more sophisticated tests are completed. In a transcript of the emergency call released by fire officials, a caller reports Jackson was on a bed and not breathing or responding to cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The unidentified caller said Jackson only was with his personal doctor at the time. The pop star died later on Thursday afternoon at University of California Los Angeles Medical Centre. As stores reported they were inundated with orders for Jackson's music, a chorus of grief for the megastar spread around the world, from statesmen to icons of music to legions of heartbroken fans. Diana Ross, who helped launch Jackson's career, said she couldn't stop crying at the sudden and shocking death. Lisa Marie Presley, briefly married to the pop icon in the mid-1990s, said he had confided to her 14 years ago that he worried about facing the same tragic fate as her father, Elvis Presley, who died of a drug overdose at age 42. "The world is in shock but somehow he knew exactly how his fate would be played out some day more than anyone else knew, and he was right," she wrote in a long, emotional statement on her MySpace page online. The White House also weighed in for the first time, with a spokesman saying President Barack Obama saw Jackson as a spectacular performer and music icon whose life nonetheless had sad and tragic aspects. The House of Representatives observed a moment of silence. Brian Oxman, a former Jackson attorney and a family friend, said Friday he had been concerned about Jackson's use of painkillers and had warned the singer's family about possible abuse. Oxman claimed Jackson had prescription drugs at his disposal to help with pain suffered when he broke his leg after he fell off a stage and for broken vertebrae in his back. After Jackson was acquitted on child molestation charges in 2005, prosecutors argued against returning to Jackson items including syringes, the drug Demerol and prescriptions for various drugs, mainly antibiotics, in different people's names. Jackson died after being stricken at his rented home in the posh Los Angeles neighbourhood of Holmby Hills. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him for three-quarter of an hours there before rushing him to the hospital. His brother Jermaine said Jackson apparently suffered cardiac arrest, an abnormal heart rhythm that stops the heart from pumping blood to the body. It can occur after a heart attack or be caused by other heart problems. Jackson was preparing for a monster comeback bid - a series of 50 concerts that was to begin next month in London. A handful of bleary-eyed fans camped out throughout the night with media outside the Jackson family house in the San Fernando Valley and near his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. People heading to work in New York stopped to pay respects outside Harlem's Apollo Theater, where Jackson performed as a child. A producer said Sunday's BET Awards would be dedicated to Jackson because of his influence on music and pop culture. And a screening of Universal Pictures' "Bruno" in Los Angeles on Thursday night cut a scene involving Jackson's sister La Toya. Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music's premier all-around performer. His 1982 album "Thriller" - which included the blockbuster hits "Beat It," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller" - is the best-selling album of all time worldwide. Yet after selling more than 61 million albums in the U.S. and having a decade-long attraction open at Disney theme parks, Jackson died reportedly awash in about 400 million (m) US dollars in debt, on the cusp of a final comeback after well over a decade of scandal. The public first knew Jackson as a boy in the late 1960s, when he was the precocious, spinning lead singer of the Jackson 5, the singing group he formed with his four older brothers out of Gary, Indiana. Among their No. 1 hits were "I Want You Back," "ABC" and "I'll Be There." He was perhaps the most exciting performer of his generation, known for his backward-gliding moonwalk, his feverish, crotch-grabbing dance moves and his high-pitched singing, punctuated with squeals and titters. His single sequined glove, tight, military-style jacket and aviator sunglasses were trademarks, as was his ever-changing, surgically altered appearance. "For Michael to be taken away from us so suddenly at such a young age, I just don't have the words," said Quincy Jones, who produced "Thriller." "He was the consummate entertainer and his contributions and legacy will be felt upon the world forever. I've lost my little brother today, and part of my soul has gone with him." Jackson ranked alongside Presley and the Beatles as the biggest pop sensations of all time. He united two of music's biggest names when he was briefly married to Presley's daughter, Lisa Marie. Jackson's sudden death immediately evoked comparisons to that of Presley himself, who died at age 42 in 1977. As years went by, Jackson became an increasingly freakish figure - a middle-aged man-child weirdly out of touch with grown-up life. His skin became lighter, his nose narrower, and he spoke in a breathy, girlish voice. He often wore a germ mask while travelling, kept a pet chimpanzee named Bubbles as one of his closest companions and surrounded himself with children at his Neverland ranch, a storybook playland filled with toys, rides and animals. The tabloids dubbed him "Wacko Jacko." After the enormous success of "Thriller," Jackson had strong follow-up albums with 1987's "Bad" and 1991's "Dangerous," but his career began to collapse in 1993 after he was accused of molesting a boy who often stayed at his home. The singer denied any wrongdoing, reached a settlement with the boy's family, reported to be 20 million (m) US dollars, and criminal charges were never filed. Jackson caused a furore in 2002 when he playfully dangled his infant son, Prince Michael II, over a hotel balcony in Berlin while a throng of fans watched from below. In 2005, he was cleared of charges that he molested a 13-year-old cancer survivor at Neverland in 2003. He had been accused of plying the boy with alcohol and groping him, and of engaging in strange and inappropriate behaviour with other children. The case followed years of rumours about Jackson and young boys. In a TV documentary, he acknowledged sharing his bed with children, a practice he described as sweet and not at all sexual. Despite the acquittal, the lurid allegations that came out in court took a fearsome toll on his career and image, and he fell into serious financial trouble. Jackson married Lisa Marie Presley in 1994, and they divorced in 1996. Later that year, Jackson married Deborah Rowe, a former nurse for his dermatologist. They had two children together: Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., known as Prince Michael, now 12; and Paris Michael Katherine Jackson, 11. Rowe filed for divorce in 1999. Jackson also had a third child, Prince Michael II, now 7. Jackson said the boy, nicknamed Blanket as a baby, was his biological child born from a surrogate mother.

Coroner's spokesman Craig Harvey said Jackson's body showed no sign of trauma and foul play was not suspected. The pop star died after on Thursday after being stricken at his rented home in the upmarket Los Angeles neighbourhood of Holmby Hills. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him for three-quarter of an hours there before rushing him to the University of California Los Angeles Medical Centre. His brother Jermaine said Jackson apparently suffered cardiac arrest, an abnormal heart rhythm that stops the heart from pumping blood to the body. It can occur after a heart attack or be caused by other heart problems. Dr Lori Mosca, Director of Preventive Cardiology at New York Presbyterian Hospital said it was not "uncommon" to administer CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) for that length of time but in "those situations it's very unlikely that the person will survive." The autopsy came as police investigating Jackson's death were looking for one of the pop king's doctors after seizing a car that they said may contain drugs or other evidence. Police towed a BMW from a rented home "because it may contain medications or other evidence that may assist the coroner in determining the cause of death," a police spokeswoman had said on Friday. She said the car belonged to one of Jackson's doctors whom police wanted to interview. She said she did not know the doctor's identity and stressed the doctor was not under criminal investigation. Brian Oxman, a former Jackson attorney and a family friend, said on Friday he had been concerned about Jackson's use of painkillers and had warned the singer's family about possible abuse. Oxman claimed Jackson had prescription drugs at his disposal to help with pain suffered when he broke his leg after he fell off a stage and for broken vertebrae in his back. After Jackson was acquitted on child molestation charges in 2005, prosecutors argued against returning to Jackson items including syringes, the drug Demerol and prescriptions for various drugs, mainly antibiotics, in different people's names. "Toxicology can certainly be done to check whether Demoral was present in a person's blood or urine and it can tell you the concentration that was in the patient's blood or urine," Dr Jane Prosser, a toxicologist at the NYU Medical Centre said. "It's up to the medical examiner to make the determination as to what may have happened to a person because someone can die with Demoral in their blood or they can die because there was Demoral in too high of a concentration." Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music's premier all-around performer. His 1982 album "Thriller" - which included the blockbuster hits "Beat It," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller" - is the best-selling album of all time worldwide. Yet after selling more than 61 (m) million albums in the US and having a decade-long attraction open at Disney theme parks, Jackson died reportedly awash in about 400 (m) million US dollars in debt, on the cusp of a final comeback after well over a decade of scandal. Jackson became an increasingly freakish figure - a middle-aged man-child weirdly out of touch with grown-up life. His skin became lighter, his nose narrower, and he spoke in a breathy, girlish voice. He often wore a germ mask while travelling, kept a pet chimpanzee named Bubbles as one of his closest companions and surrounded himself with children at his Neverland ranch, a storybook playland filled with toys, rides and animals. The tabloids dubbed him "Wacko Jacko." Sherrell J. Aston, a doctor commenting on Jackson's plastic surgery claimed that it was an indication of "other psychological issues going on." "I think that the plastic surgery he had was just one manifestation of a lot of issues going on." Jackson was preparing for a monster comeback bid - a series of 50 concerts that was to begin next month in London.

Two STILL photos showing Dr Conrad Murray posing for a photo as he opens the Acres Homes Cardiovascular Centre at the Tidwell Professional Building, in Houston STORYLINE US police are seeking to speak to the doctor who was with pop icon Michael Jackson during his last minutes of life and who pumped his chest in a vain attempt to save his life. Authorities said they wanted to speak with the doctor, identified by the Los Angeles Times as cardiologist Conrad Murray, and said they had towed his car from Jackson's rented mansion because it could contain medication or other evidence. Police stressed that the doctor was not a criminal suspect. A spokesman for the Los Angeles County coroner, said there were no signs of foul play. He said Jackson was taking some unspecified prescription medication but gave few other details. Jackson died at UCLA Medical Centre after being stricken at his rented home in the upmarket Los Angeles neighbourhood of Holmby Hills. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his home for nearly three-quarters of an hour, then rushed him to the hospital, where doctors continued to work on him. His brother Jermaine said he was believed to have suffered cardiac arrest in his home but the cause of his death was unknown until results of the autopsy were revealed. The autopsy was completed in a matter of hours, but an official cause of death could take up to six weeks while medical examiners await toxicology tests. No funeral plans had been made public. Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music's premier all-around performer, a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage. His 1982 album "Thriller" - which included the blockbuster hits "Beat It," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller" - is the best-selling album of all time, with an estimated 50 (m) million copies sold worldwide.

Fans chanting "Michael" STORYLINE: Fans across the world on Friday reacted with shock and sadness to the death of Michael Jackson, one of the world's iconic pop idols. The 50-year-old musical superstar suffered cardiac arrest and died on Thursday, just as he was preparing for what would have been a series of 50 concerts starting July 13 at London's O2 arena. Word of Jackson's death jolted thousands, from Chinese students, to UK fans hoping to see their idol on stage this summer, to a generation of people around the world who have tried, in vain, to moonwalk. The dramatic death of the singer seemed to obscure his recent controversies and kindle warmer memories of Jackson the child star and Jackson the show-stopping, moon-walking headliner. A sombre crowd of about 100 young people gathered in Beijing for a candle lit vigil to mourn the singer's death. Fans arranged candles in the shape of the singer's name, held posters of the pop star and sang his songs. In the French capital Paris, hundreds of Jackson fans gathered in front of Notre Dame Cathedral. They held up his pictures, sang his songs, danced, cried and shouted in grief. Similar scenes took place in both London and Berlin. An autopsy was planned for Friday, though results were not likely to be final until toxicology tests could be completed, a process that could take several days and sometimes weeks. However, if a cause can be determined by the autopsy, they will announce the results, said a Los Angeles County Coroner Investigator. Jackson died at UCLA Medical Centre after being stricken at his rented home in the posh Los Angeles neighbourhood of Holmby Hills. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his home for nearly three-quarters of an hour, then rushed him to the hospital, where doctors continued to work on him. His brother Jermaine said he was believed to have suffered cardiac arrest in his home but the cause of his death was unknown until results of the autopsy were revealed. Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music's premier all-around performer, a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage. His 1982 album "Thriller" - which included the blockbuster hits "Beat It," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller" - is the best-selling album of all time, with an estimated 50 (m) million copies sold worldwide. Jackson's death prompted broadcasters from Sydney to Seoul to interrupt programmes, while fans remembered a "tortured genius" whose squeals and sliding moves captivated a generation and who sparked global trends in music, dance and fashion.

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

But certainly, both the tone and substance (of the talks) are reflecting a steady drift towards the IWC becoming a conservation forum and away from being a whalers' club." 9. Cutaway of sea STORYLINE: The new head of the International Whaling Commission (IWC) said on Friday there were no guarantees that negotiators from pro and anti-whaling nations would settle their dispute within the 12-month deadline they have set themselves. Cristian Maquieira said he could not promise a final solution within a year, but hoped "at the very least we have the framework of an agreement at the end of that period." Maquieira was speaking at the end of the IWC's week-long annual meeting. Delegates from more than 80 countries attended the gathering in Portugal's Madeira islands, but remained split between nations which support whaling and those that demand its end. The deadlock has lasted since a 1986 ban on commercial whaling, angering conservation groups. Japan, Norway and Iceland continue to harpoon around 2,000 whales annually. They argue that many species, such as minke whales, are abundant enough to continue hunting them. The United States, Australia and the European Union want whaling to stop, or at least be reduced. Maquieira, a veteran Chilean diplomat who was elected IWC president on Thursday, said both sides would have to compromise. "In the final outcome, everybody's not going to get what they want. If they want to have an agreement they're going to have to swallow very difficult decisions," he said in an interview. Maquieira noted an improvement in the tenor of negotiations in recent years. In the past, delegates have stormed out of meetings and environmentalists were not allowed to attend. Conservation groups attending the Madeira meeting as official observers were mostly unhappy about the IWC's decision to extend the negotiations for another year. Other groups, however, said they were encouraged by IWC's willingness to address climate change and other environmental concerns. "You're kind of seeing the final, the final desperate attempts by a dying industry to maintain itself," said Patrick Ramage, of the International Fund for Animal Welfare, a US-based conservation group. The IWC was set up by whaling countries in 1949 to oversee their industry but it now has to deal with 21st-century threats to whales such as noise and water pollution.

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