Van carrying Specter from police station to hospital (for unknown injury) MUSIC LEGEND ACCUSED OF SLAYING B-MOVIE ACTRESS Veteran record producer Phil Spector was facing a murder charge today after a B-movie actress was found dead at his Californian mansion. Spector was expected to appear in court within days to be formally charged with first degree murder. The 62-year-old music industry legend was arrested after the body of Lana Clarkson, 40, was found at his palatial home in the Los Angeles suburb of Alhambra yesterday. Ms Clarkson appeared as a dancer in Brian De Palma's 1983 film 'Scarface, 'starring Al Pacino, but was best known for her "sword and sorcery" roles in films such as 'Deathstalker,' 'Barbarian Queen' and 'Barbarian Queen II: The Empress Strikes Back. ' She had also appeared in numerous American TV shows, and her most recent film credit was in 2001 as Dr Ellen Taylor in March, James Mercurio's film about an insurance salesman trying to save his marriage. Accroding to police, she had been shot dead and her body was found sprawled in the marble foyer of reclusive Spector's castle-like home. Police also recovered a gun from the mansion. A chauffeur who drove the actress and Spector to the record producer's home called police after hearing gunshots, sources told the Los Angeles Times. The couple were reported to have met on Sunday night, just hours before Ms Clarkson's body was discovered. Police were called in the early hours of yesterday morning and arrested Spector almost immediately. He was taken into custody at Alhambra Police Department for questioning as part of a murder investigation and later charged. No one else is being sought in connection with the murder and bail for Spector was set at one million dollars. He could appear in court for arraignment as early as tomorrow. Attorney Robert Shapiro, whose clients have included former football star O.J. Simpson, was representing Spector. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989, Spector, who had become increasingly reclusive in recent years, created the "Wall of Sound" effect that involved over-dubbing musicians to create a wide spectrum of sound. It changed pop forever. A wunderkind, Spector had his first hit when he was 17 and produced a string of '60s hits that defined an era. They included the Crystals' 'Da Doo Ron Ron' and 'Then He Kissed Me,' the Ronettes' 'Be My Baby' and 'Walking in the Rain,' and Darlene Love's 'Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)' and '(Today I Met) the Boy I'm Gonna Marry.' He also produced such music greats as Tina Turner the Beatles, the Righteous Brothers and George Harrison. Most recently he had been collaborating with the UK indie band Starsailor. His methods of working however were far from conventional. Appearing to thrive on other people's nervousness; Spector would sometimes behave oddly around recording artists, increasing the tension. In a bizarre 1980 collaboration with punk outfit The Ramones, the session that bassist Dee Dee Ramone recalled that Spector pulled a gun on the band.

Lana Clarkson, 40, was discovered by B-movie king Roger Corman and starred in a series of films including 'Barbarian Queen', a character Corman said was the model for TV's 'Xena: Warrior Princess'. One month before Phil Spector was taken in for questioning in her death, he gave what's described as his first interview in 25 years. Spector told the London Daily Telegraph that he's "probably relatively insane to an extent." He says he takes medication because he's bipolar. Spector says he has "devils inside" and as a result, he has been a "very tortured soul." Entertainment paper 'Variety' says Spector met Lana Clarkson at the House of Blues just hours before police were called to his home. Clarkson started working at the House of Blues as a ticket collector and hostess last month. A friend says Clarkson thought it would be a way "back into the mainstream" of Hollywood. Clarkson spent part of her final days signing autographs at a comic book convention. Spector was arrested before dawn Monday for investigation of first-degree murder after Clarkson's body was found in the foyer of his mansion, about 15 miles (24 kilometers) northeast of Los Angeles. He was freed Monday night after posting $1 million bail. No charges have been filed. Spector gained fame for using a "wall of sound" effect for 1960s pop recordings. He produced 'Let It Be' for the Beatles and records for Elvis Presley, the Righteous Brothers and The Ramones. Spector also produced classic hits including the Crystals' 'Da Doo Ron Ron' and 'Be My Baby', by the Ronettes.

Various of protesters STORYLINE: Muslim protesters took to the streets of major cities around the world on Friday to demonstrate against the publication of caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad in European newspapers. In the Palestinian Territories, tens of thousands of angry Muslims marched through Palestinian cities after Friday prayers. In Jerusalem's Old City, a group of around one hundred men, carrying a large green Hamas banner, chanted slogans in defence of the Prophet Muhammad and denounced Israel. There were scuffles between Israeli police and Palestinian worshippers trying to gain access to the al-Aqsa mosque compound. But entry to the compound was limited by the Israeli authorities to men aged 45 and above - a measure often used to suppress demonstrations at prayer time. Large rallies were held also in Gaza City and Nablus and Ramallah in the West Bank. Emotions were also running high in the Palestinian refugee camps around the Lebanese capital. Protesters burnt various European flags and products and carried banners calling for the boycott of Danish and Norwegian goods. The Grand Ayatollah Muhammad Hussein Fadlallah, spiritual leader of Lebanon's 1.2 (m) million Shiites, called on Muslims in the world to "continue to exercise their peaceful pressures, to make the world know that this is not just a matter of freedom of expression but a war on the sanctities and values of the Muslims in the world." Across Iraq, Sunni and Shiite Islamic leaders called for demonstrations after Friday prayers to denounce the cartoons. Iraq's top Shiite cleric Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani has condemned the publication of the caricatures but suggested that militant Muslims were partly to blame for distorting the image of Islam. Meanwhile in Tehran, protesters chanted slogans and held banners denouncing Denmark - the country that first published the pictures. Addressing worshippers at Friday prayers, former Iranian president Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani said he believed the cartoons were linked to the International Atomic Energy Agency's imminent decision on whether to refer Iran to the UN Security Council over the country's nuclear programme. Also on Friday, around 800 people turned out to protest in Islamabad. The Secretary General of Jamaat-e Islami, Liaquat Baluch, said the cartoons were "insulting the feelings of the Muslim ummah (community)". Under Pakistani law, anyone insulting Muhammad or Islam's holy book, the Quran, can be sentenced to death. The 12 cartoons first appeared in September in Denmark's largest broadsheet newspaper, Jyllands-Posten. They have since been reprinted across Europe. The pictures include an image of the Prophet Muhammad wearing a turban shaped as a bomb with a burning fuse, while another portrays him holding a sword, his eyes covered by a black rectangle. Islamic tradition bars any depiction of the Prophet Muhammad, favourable or otherwise, to prevent idolatry.

BUSH OVER GRAPHIC OF PRESIDENT++ 1. SOUNDBITE: (English) George Bush, United States President: "For more than a week, the people of the nation of Georgia have withstood assault from the Russian military. The world has watched with alarm as Russia invaded a sovereign neighbouring state and threatened a democratic government elected by its people. This act is completely unacceptable to the free nations of the world. The United States and our allies stand with the people of Georgia and their democratically elected government. We insist that Georgia's sovereignty and territorial integrity be respected. And Moscow must honour its pledge to withdraw its invading forces from all Georgian territory. Earlier this week I directed a series of steps to demonstrate America's solidarity with the Georgian people and to help bring about a peaceful resolution of the conflict. On Thursday, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was in France, where she conferred with President Sarkozy about the diplomatic effort that the French government is leading on behalf of the European Union. She was in the Georgian capital of Tbilisi, where she conveyed America's support for Georgia's democratic government. And next week, Secretary Rice will travel to Brussels, where she will meet with the foreign ministers of our NATO allies and EU officials to continue our efforts to rally the free world in defence of a free Georgia. Secretary of Defence Robert Gates is overseeing a mission by the United States military to provide humanitarian aid for the people of Georgia. In recent days, US cargo planes carrying humanitarian supplies have arrived in Georgia. In the days ahead, we will continue using US aircraft and other assets as needed to deliver more humanitarian and medical supplies. Russia has agreed to let in all forms of humanitarian assistance, and Russia must keep open all lines of communication and transport, including seaports, airports, roads, and airspace for civilian transit and the delivery of humanitarian assistance. Georgia's emergence as a young democracy has been part of an inspiring and hopeful new chapter in Europe's history. Europe has moved beyond the world wars that killed (m) millions of people and the Cold War that divided its citizens between two superpowers. For the first time in memory, Europe is becoming a continent that is whole, free, and at peace. And it is essential that America and other free nations ensure that an embattled democracy seeking to stand with us remains sovereign, secure, and undivided. Russia's actions in Georgia raise serious questions about its role and its intentions in the Europe of the 21st century. In recent years, Russia has sought to integrate into the diplomatic, political, economic, and security structures of the West. The United States has supported those efforts. Now Russia has put its aspirations at risk by taking actions in Georgia that are inconsistent with the principles of those institutions. To begin to repair the damage to its relations with the United States, Europe, and other nations, and to begin restoring its place in the world, Russia must act to end this crisis." STORYLINE: US President George W. Bush continued to voice his support of Georgia on Friday, insisting that Moscow must honour its pledge to withdraw its invading forces from all Georgian territory. Speaking at his weekly Saturday morning radio address, which was released a day earlier, the US president said that his country and its allies stood by the people of Georgia and its democratically elected government. "We insist that Georgia's sovereignty and territorial integrity be respected," Bush said speaking from his ranch in Crawford, Texas where his radio address is recorded. "I directed a series of steps to demonstrate America's solidarity with the Georgian people and to help bring about a peaceful resolution of the conflict," he added. Bush was referring to US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's visit to France earlier in the week, "where she conferred with President Sarkozy about the diplomatic effort that the French government is leading on behalf of the European Union." Sarkozy worked out the peace pact that both sides had said they had agreed with. Bush also said Secretary of Defence Robert Gates was overseeing a mission by the United States military to provide humanitarian aid for the people of Georgia. Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili grudgingly signed a truce with Russia in Tbilisi on Friday, even as he denounced the Russians as invading barbarians and accused the West of all but encouraging them to overrun his country. Russian President Dmitry Medvedev's press office had no information on Friday night on whether he had signed the cease-fire agreement. Russia's foreign minister assured Rice later that his country would implement the deal faithfully, a US official said. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because Rice's conversation was private, said Russia was likely to sign the deal on Saturday. The cease-fire document sets out no specific penalties or deadlines. It contains concessions to Russia that Saakashvili obviously found hard to swallow. Russia could retain peacekeeping forces in the separatist region of South Ossetia and another breakaway region, Abkhazia, and the forces would have a broader mandate in South Ossetia. And as Rice spoke in Tbilisi, Russian forces remained camped out just 25 miles (40 kilometres) away. Associated Press reporters had seen a convoy of some 50 Russian army trucks and armoured personnel carriers roar without warning southeast from the city of Gori on Wednesday, some shouting they were heading to Tbilisi. But they veered into a field outside the town of Igoeti and set up camp conspicuously within sight of the road. The Kremlin said in a statement that Russia would sign the France-brokered deal "as a mediator." That is an apparent reference to UN Security Council resolutions that define Russia as a "facilitator" in the dispute between Georgia and its nominally sovereign breakaway regions. Even if Russia fully complies with the cease-fire, the Bush administration says there will be more consequences to come. Bush's advisers are settling on penalties that would be intentionally modest and subtle, such as continuing to exclude Russia's foreign minister from discussions among his counterparts in elite gatherings of the world's leading economies. "Russia's actions in Georgia raise serious questions about its role and its intentions in the Europe of the 21st century," Bush said. "In recent years, Russia has sought to integrate into the diplomatic, political, economic, and security structures of the West. The United States has supported those efforts. Now Russia has put its aspirations at risk by taking actions in Georgia that are inconsistent with the principles of those institutions," he added. The idea is to give Moscow the diplomatic cold shoulder while offering face-saving leeway for Russia to turn away from a mentality the West sees as throwback to its empire days. Russia would then have motivation, and some wiggle room, to seek inclusion in Western economic, political and security institutions. There was no immediate clue to the Russians' intentions a week after their tanks and bombers entered Georgia in retaliation for Georgia's attempt to retake a disputed province by force.

SOUNDBITE (English) Jasper Becker, Author of "The Chinese": "One idea is that they basically would like to turn the Communist Party into a sort of Social Democratic Party but without having too much of the Democracy there. So it's clear that he's (Hu) someone who's been given the role to think about these things but what he himself would think about it or whether he himself would take any risks, we don't know but most people suspect he isn't going to do that and in fact he won't have the opportunity as long as Jiang Zemin is around." APTN Beijing - 8 November 2002 27. Wide shot of the opening ceremony of the National People's Congress 28. Mid shot of Hu (in the middle) sitting down STORYLINE: The man expected to be China's next leader became the only top politician re-elected to the Communist Party's ruling elite on Thursday, the most solid sign yet of Hu Jintao's ascent to the acme of Asia's largest, fastest-growing country. As China's 16th National Party Congress ended, the official Xinhua News Agency said President Jiang Zemin's name was not on the list of those re-elected, indicating his expected retirement from a formal party role. Five of his colleagues also were not re-elected, Xinhua said in what appears to be the first orderly transfer of power since the communists took China in 1949. Xinhua specifically identified 59-year-old Vice President Hu as "the only member" of the previous party congress' Standing Committee to be re-elected to the Central Committee. The Standing Committee of the party's Politburo is the inner circle of party leadership - and, by extension, the leadership of China. Hu is expected to become general secretary, though the details of exactly when he will be elected by his peers remained unclear Thursday afternoon. Jiang, 76, general secretary of the Communist Party since he replaced Zhao Ziyang in a 1989 purge after the Tiananmen Square democracy protests, will remain president until March. Hu, was designated as Jiang's heir apparent by the late senior leader Deng Xiaoping. His ascent has been widely expected, though little is known about him. He has taken on a higher profile in recent months and traveled to the United States in the spring, a signal that he was being readied. The former hydropower engineer was elected to the Chinese Communist Party's Politburo Standing Committee in 1992 becoming its youngest member. A colleague from his days at the Central Youth Committee recalled a person who was down to earth and sharp. Nevertheless, Hu had no notable record of accomplishment in his previous posts. However, as Party Secretary for the Tibet province Hu attracted controversy by declaring Martial law in Lhasa, capital of Tibet in March 1989. It was the first time martial law had ever been enforced in the People's Republic of China and set a precedent for the declaration of martial law in Beijing two months later. Little is known of where Hu is likely to take China in the future. Though none have suggested that he harbours any surprising liberal views, Hu seemed to have begun looking elsewhere for models of a socialist order. According to Jasper Becker, author of "The Chinese", Hu had encouraged members of the Central Party school, to look at other left wing socialist parties and see what China could learn from them. Left wing philosophers from Germany and France have been invited to lecture at the school. Wherever it is that Hu wants to take China, foreign analysts say the new generation clearly see the system needs wholesale change. Politically, members of the younger generation are believed to be trying to mix in elements of democracy to stay in touch with the masses while keeping the Communist Party in overall control. What seems increasingly clear is that Hu Jintao is unlikely to effect much change so long as Jiang Zemin remains, albeit behind the scenes, ever watchful. China's rulers say they want to convey a sense of calm and thoughtfulness at the top so money from abroad continues pouring in, raising living standards and keeping people happy - or at least unwilling to oppose party rule.

They would smoke a joint the last night, they would drink the last bottle of wine, they would make jokes, even bad jokes, but they would still fight it to the end.

SOUNDBITE (Mandarin) Lou ye, Director: "First of all I had the same feelings that there are parts of the film that I am still figuring out what they really mean to me. So basically the film is about different people that come together and what are the factors that bring them together and why they meet up and why they get separated later. It is about destiny, fate and so there can be many answers. I tried to use the film to try and understand fate and destiny because I don't have the answers myself. Through the film I hope that I can help myself to come to understand these matters." Wild Bunch 12. Film Clip - 'Purple Butterfly' CRITICAL ACCLAIM FOR FRENCH COMPETITION RUNNER, AND ASIAN HOPE FOR PALME D'OR LES INVASIONS BARBARES A few days ago, critics had put 'Dogville' at the front running to win the prestigious Palme D'Or but now many have changed their minds after the screening of 'Les Invasions Barbares' by acclaimed Canadian director DENYS ARCAND. Arcand has long been a film festival favourite, but has never yet lived up to the reputation he gained after the 1989 Grand Jury prize winner 'Jesus of Montreal' until now. 'Les Invasions Barbares' may appear to be a follow up to his 1986 film 'Le Declin de L'Empire Americain' as it contains the same cast playing the same characters but Arcand states that he in no way wants the new film to be viewed as a sequel. The film follows the story of Remy, who is terminally ill in hospital. Remy (Canadian actor Remy Girard) is a middle-aged divorcee and former swinger. His ex-wife Louise (Dorothee Berryman) persuades their son Sebastien (STEPAHNE ROUSSEAU), a millionaire financier, to come home from London to visit his dying father. Estranged children (Marie-Josee Croze, Marina Hands), old friends (Pierre Curzi, Yves Jacques), and former mistresses (Louise Portal, Dominique Michel) gather around his bedside with their emotional support and their memories. A passing reference to September 11th introduces Arcand's theme of modern barbarians at the gate of civilization, and the director uses Remy's situation to look at the personal and the political in today's society, and the universal themes of love, faith, family and death. At its screening, 'Les Invasions Barbares' received a standing ovation, building on the strong opening it received when it was released in Canada recently. Arcand had to edit the movie down by 12 minutes for his Cannes appearance on the insistence of his distributors as they felt the film was too localized in areas. The film is Arcand's second film in French since 1989 and his 22nd film in total. PURPLE BUTTERFLY Although fear of spreading SARS prevented many Chinese filmmakers from coming to Cannes, the cast from LOU YE's film 'Purple Butterfly' premiered the film at the festival, with the beautiful 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon' star Zhang Zi Yi. 'Purple Butterfly' is set in 1928 when Shanghai had been unofficially occupied by Japan. It centres around Cynthia, also known in the film as Ding Hui, who is working for Purple Butterfly, a resistance group planning to assassinate the Japanese head of the secret service, Yamamoto.. It contains numerous subplots and the theme focuses on people not having control of their own destinies. It follows three stories interwoven within the plot. One plotline follows Itami (Tori Nakmura), Cynthia's former lover, forced to leave when he was called home from his military service. In '28, Itami is also in Shanghai, operating as a secret agent and reporting directly to Yamamoto. Arriving at Shanghai station to meet his fiancee, Szeto, a young Chinese man, is mistaken by the assembled resistance fighters for the assassin they have hired to kill Yamamoto. Violence erupts and Szeto's fiancee is shot dead in the crossfire. Szeto escapes with the Purple Butterfly members, all of whom believe him to be the hired killer. Only Ding Hui realises the truth. The film has received mixed reviews from the notoriously harsh Cannes critics. 'Purple Butterfly' is the third feature from director Lou Ye, and the first to be selected in Cannes.
