Mid of Moore and friend looking at her destroyed home  STORYLINE:  Officials in rural Mississippi were trying to finalise the death toll and assess the damage on Sunday after a tornado tore across the state on Saturday.  At least six counties were hit and 10 people killed.  Dozens more were injured and hundreds of homes damaged.  The stories told by survivors on Sunday showed how much higher the toll could have been.  After an aerial tour of the damage, Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour described the scene in Yazoo County, where he grew up, as "utter obliteration.''  Barbour heard first hand from some survivors.  In Yazoo County, home to around 28-thousand, all that remained of Sullivan's Crossroads Grocery was a pile of rubble and some jars of pickled eggs and pigs' feet.  But owner Ron Sullivan, his wife and four other people managed to ride out the storm and suffered only some cuts and bruises.  Sullivan had been on the phone, describing the weather conditions to a meteorologist, when the line went dead and the twister hit, tearing the wooden roof off the store and hurling Sullivan into a brickwork wall.  A steel fuel storage tank, about 10 feet long, was uprooted by the twister and rolled into the store, coming to rest against a freezer.  Another man spoke of how he was forced to take refuge under a communion table as his church was blown to pieces around him.  Hundreds of homes were damaged in the storm, which carved a path of devastation from the Louisiana line to east-central Mississippi, and at least three dozen people were hurt.  Tornadoes also were reported in Louisiana, Arkansas and Alabama. The storm system tracked northeastwards, downing trees in northwest Georgia early on Sunday before moving offshore.  Mississippi's Choctaw County suffered the highest confirmed deaths: five, including a baby and two other children.  On Sunday, many people were focused on cleanup, with the buzz of chainsaws and tractors rumbling across the region.  Rescuers spread out to find anyone who might still be trapped, while survivors returned to demolished homes to salvage what they could and bulldoze the rubble.  Hundreds were still without power, and officials said some may be without power until Tuesday or even Wednesday.  Sharon Moore and daughter Albreshauna surveyed their ruined home in tears. Moore, a single mother with three children, had been participating in a programme to move economically disadvantaged families into new homes.  After spending 500 hours herself working on the house in the past year, she was preparing to move in next weekend.  All that changed after Saturday's tornado tore the roof off their home and left it in a neighbour's yard.  At least four people were killed in Yazoo County, and one died in neighbouring Holmes County.  Mississippi Emergency Management Agency spokesman Greg Flynn said at least three dozen people were hurt and nearly 200 homes damaged in Attala, Holmes, Monroe and Warren Counties.  Officials were still working to assess the total damage in Choctaw and Yazoo counties.  About 40 National Guard soldiers patrolled Yazoo City, some in Humvees and others in a Blackhawk helicopter on Sunday.  Dozens of state troopers and other law enforcement officers also came from far-flung parts of the state to help.  Meteorologists said it was too soon to tell whether a single long-lasting tornado, or multiple shorter ones, carved the path of destruction from northeastern Louisiana to east-central Mississippi.  ===============  Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com (ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.

Mid of Obama walking out, with his arm on mourner's shoulder, shaking hands with people as he walks out (++overlaid with music at source++) 19. Miners' families walking out after memorial service (++overlaid with music at source++)  STORYLINE:  US President Barack Obama paid tribute on Sunday to the coal miners who died in a West Virginia mine accident earlier this month, the worst mining accident in a generation.  He said they had lived and died pursuing the American Dream.  Speaking at a memorial service in Beckley, Obama told the miners' families that the nation would honour the men's memories by improving safety in the mines.  "How can we fail them?" Obama asked.  "How can a nation that relies on its miners not do everything in its power to protect them?" he added.  With the families sitting near him, and the executive from the Massey Energy Company which runs the mine, sitting near the rear of the hall, Obama spoke broadly about the 29 workers killed in the explosion.  "Most days they would emerge, sweaty, dirty, dusted from coal," Obama said. "Most days they'd come home. But not that day."  Investigators have detected high levels of two potentially explosive gases inside the mine, and it could be a month before investigators can get inside to determine what caused the blast on 5 April, 2010 at the Upper Big Branch mine.  Federal regulators have identified highly explosive methane gas, coal dust or a mixture of the two as the likely cause of the blast, but the ignition source is unknown.  The explosion will be the subject of a Senate hearing on Tuesday, with the nation's top mine safety official expected to testify.  Obama has ordered a broad review of coal mines with poor safety records and urged federal officials to strengthen laws which he previously described as "so riddled with loopholes that they allow unsafe conditions to continue."  Vice President Joe Biden, speaking before Obama at the service, called miners "the spine of this nation" and "roughneck angels."  He said the time would come to account for the safety conditions that led to the disaster.  Obama linked the West Virginia deaths with the challenges Americans faced from coast to coast in a moribund economy.  Before the sombre memorial service, Obama and Biden met privately with the miners' families.  At the service a row of 29 white crosses fronted the main stage.  Behind the crosses were photos of the miners, and to the side of the stage stood a large wreath with 29 white roses, with two yellow roses in recognition of two injured miners.  Gayle Manchin, wife of the state governor, read out the miners' names, as a member from each family walked up and placed a miner's helmet on a corresponding cross.  During the service, the lights dimmed and one by one, each helmet-mounted lamp was lit in the darkness.  Governor Joe Manchin also promised action to improve mine safety, making a pledge to the families that their loved ones "would not die in vain."  ===============  Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com (ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.

Pan right of Ladies in White surrounded by chanting crowd  STORYLINE  Cuba held elections to fill municipal assemblies across the island on Sunday in a vote the communist government says belies criticism in Washington and Europe that Fidel Castro's half-century old revolution is not democratic.  Almost all of Cuba's 8.4 (m) million eligible voters were expected to turn out for the vote - which will choose 15,000 people to fill seats in 169 municipal assemblies.  Those elected won't be dealing with big geopolitical issues such as how to thaw frozen relations with the United States, or what measures must be taken to revitalise a near-dormant economy. Instead, they will be the first point of contact most Cubans have with their government, the person to see if electricity service is spotty or if the neighbours are making too much noise.  The municipal assemblies also have some role in electing those who will fill more important bodies including the regional assemblies and the national parliament, which in turn decides who will serve on the Council of State, Cuba's supreme governing body.  As president, Raul Castro is head of the Council of State. His brother Fidel, who stepped down permanently in 2008 after an undisclosed illness, remains leader of the Communist Party.  Cuba's leaders have charged that the international news media ignore the local voting as part of a global campaign to discredit the revolution. They say their system is, in fact, the most democratic in the world because it requires participation on a block-by-block level and is not influenced by money.  Critics say the elections are window-dressing since all real power is concentrated in the hands of the Castros and an aging cadre of revolutionaries who have been with them since they overthrew dictator Fulgencio Batista in 1959.  Raul Castro cast his ballot in Havana's Vedado neighbourhood. It was not clear whether Fidel would also venture out to a polling station. In 2007, the last time elections were held, a ballot box was brought to the ailing revolutionary so that he could vote.   Fidel, 83, has looked strong and alert in recent video released by the government, but he has not been seen in public in nearly four years.  Candidates in Sunday's vote are nominated by a show of hands at gatherings organised by the local government. Committees for the Defence of the Revolution - or CDRs - neighbourhood watch groups charged with keeping close tabs on their areas and with reporting seditious activity, help get people out to the gatherings.  While candidates do not need to be members of the Communist Party, the vast majority are in good standing with local authorities. The nomination process is done by a show of hands, but a committee must approve each candidate in order for their names to get on the ballot.  Campaigning is outlawed in Cuba, so voters learn about the candidates based either on word of mouth in the community or through a resume and photograph pasted onto the walls of voting centres.  As in other countries, each voter places a check mark by the name of the candidate they want, and the balloting is secret. While participation is not mandatory, it is strongly encouraged. Cubans 16 years of age or older can vote, and even younger schoolchildren play a role. Each ballot box is "guarded" by two children dressed in their school uniforms. In 2007, the last time municipal elections were held, turnout topped 95 percent.  Results were expected on Monday. A run-off to decide elections in which no candidate received at least 50 percent of the vote will be held on May 2.  Meanwhile, a small group of carefully choreographed government supporters shouted down an even smaller contingent of wives and mothers of jailed opposition activists, preventing their traditional march for the third straight week in another ugly confrontation that may be becoming a Cuban weekend tradition.  After seven years of peaceful protests following Mass in Havana's upscale Miramar neighbourhood, Cuba has begun blocking the "Ladies in White" from marching since the group never obtained written permission to do so.  Officials first broke up their demonstration on April 11, with a pro-government mob and buses that eventually gave the women a ride home.  The following Sunday, counter-demonstrators surrounded the ?Women in White,? refused to let them march and shouted insults in an hourslong standoff that ended with the women again being driven home.  This time, six members - down from nine last week - left the Santa Rita de Casia Church and crossed swank Fifth Avenue to hold their demonstration on a sidewalk that runs down the middle of the boulevard.  A state agent in a Che Guevara T-shirt said they couldn't march and Laura Pollan, one of the group's founders, tried to respond.  But the agent turned and walked away and that cued two waiting groups of about 50 counter-protesters each who came up the sidewalk from both directions hoisting large Cuban flags.  The women marched until they ran into one group, then retraced their steps until meeting the other.  They shouted "Freedom!" and held skyward the pink gladiolas they always carry.  The counter- protesters surrounded them and shouted "Fidel! Fidel!"  Muscular state security agents with earpieces wedged themselves in between the duelling protests to prevent violence.  Organisers in plainclothes moved through the counter-demonstrators suggesting chants.  The women moved to a nearby park, where they were surrounded and remained for more than two hours.  Members of the ?Women in White? are relatives of 75 opposition activists arrested in a 2003 crackdown on dissent, but Cuba claims they are agents of Washington out to destabilise government.  Also on Sunday, Ricardo Alarcon, head of Cuba's parliament, became the first top official to respond to an assertion by US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, that Fidel and Raul Castro don't want Washington's 48-year embargo lifted because they would no longer be able to blame America for their country's problems.  "Mrs. Clinton is a very intelligent woman and I don't want to be rude with her," Alarcon said. "If she really believes the continuation of the embargo is in the benefit of our government, it's very simple for her to ask Congress to lift the embargo."  He also suggested Washington suspend its trade restrictions for one year to see what happens.  ===============  Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com (ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.

The TV report Sunday said five ground-to-sea and sea-to-sea missiles were simultaneously fired.  It did not elaborate on the specifications of the missiles or say whether they are new.  However, the semiofficial Fars news agency said on Saturday that four types of short-range missiles would be launched on Sunday in the war games, including Nasr 1, a short-range cruise capable of destroying targets up to 3,000 tons in size.  Iran's Revolutionary Guard began the war games on Thursday, an annual show of military strength that often leads to heightened tension in the region. ===============  Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com (ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.

End of news conference  STORYLINE  Greece's finance minister expressed confidence on Sunday that European governments and the International Monetary Fund soon would provide (b) billions of US dollars in emergency aid so his debt-burdened nation could make a large repayment on time in May.  George Papaconstantinou said that Greece had no intention of defaulting on its debt obligations by repaying creditors less than what they are owed.  After weekend talks at the International Monetary Fund's headquarters blocks from the White House, he said he expected the IMF's executive board in early May to approve Greece's request for about 13.4 (b) billion US dollars in loans.  The IMF's managing director, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, said he was optimistic that "we will conclude discussions in time to meet Greece's needs."  The Greek government, which is putting in place austerity measures, faces a debt payment of 11.3 (b) billion US dollars on May 19.  "We are all aware of the seriousness of the situation and the courageous efforts being made by the Greek people," Strauss-Kahn said in a statement.  In addition to the 13.4 (b) billion from the IMF, Greece is hoping to obtain loans of about 40 (b) billion US dollars from a group of 16 European countries that use the euro.  Strauss-Kahn said everyone involved in trying to help Greece sees "the need for speed," given the severity of the debt crisis.  Greece's woes weighed heavily on financial leaders as they wrapped up the spring meetings of the IMF and World Bank with a pledge to address the risks facing the global economic recovery.  The bank's steering committee discussed how to increase support to cushion the world's poorest countries from a recession that appears to be ending, even though serious threats such as high government debt and unemployment remain.  Crippled by soaring borrowing costs, Greece on Friday made a formal request for the aid. Prime Minister George Papandreou declared in a televised address that his country's economy was a "sinking ship."  European and IMF officials have made clear that their support will carry a high price: putting Greece's fiscal house in order. Greece has already agreed to begin an austerity program that cuts civil servants' pay, freezes pensions and raises taxes. But the country faces years of painful cutbacks and doubts about its long-term finances.  The austerity programme has already generated massive street protests and labour strikes in Greece.  Meanwhile the World Bank has agreed to dramatically increase the voting power of China, lifting it to the No. 3 spot in the 186-nation lending organisaton.  World Bank President Robert Zoellick said that the decision was made on Sunday by the organisation's policy-setting Development Committee.  The Committee also agreed to increase raise extra capital.  Briefing reporters, Zoellick welcomed the developments by saying, "today was a very good day for multilateralism."  The United States will retain the No. 1 spot in terms of voting power followed by Japan.  Before the realignment, China had ranked below a number of European countries. It has been pushing for a bigger say in international organisations to reflect its growing importance in the global economy.  ===============  Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com (ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.

Miniature train passing by  STORYLINE  Greece's finance minister said on Sunday he was confident that his country would be able to secure (b) billions of dollars in emergency loans from the International Monetary Fund and European countries - but many Greeks are worried about what the consequences of the borrowing will be for them, according to a Sky News report.  Many Greeks are struggling with the effects of the country's crippling debt crisis.  The government has already implemented painful cuts to try to improve the national finances.  But it is likely the IMF and the euro-zone governments will require even tougher measures in return for assistance, which many Greeks are worried could lead to further public sector job losses, Sky said.  In central Athens on Sunday, many people said the effects of the crisis could be felt across the whole economy.  Street artist Sava Relu-Ionel, who moved to Greece from his native Romania in 2001, said his income had shrunk dramatically.  Life now was "incomparable" to how it was before, he said.  Other people complained that the government's request for aid had come too late.  According to a poll published on Saturday in the weekly Proto Thema newspaper, more than 37 percent of Greeks believed the government, led by Prime Minister George Papandreou, had been too slow in responding to the crisis.  Greece's government was forced to formally request assistance from other European nations and the IMF on Friday, after months of saying it would be able to weather the debt crisis using its own resources.  Greece is now hoping to obtain emergency loans of about 40 (b) billion US dollars from the group of 16 European countries which, like Greece, use the euro as a common currency, and an additional 13.4 (b) billion US dollars from the IMF.  Many public sector workers are worried that the emergency aid will have tough consequences for them.  Teacher Anna Skoura was taking part in a protest outside the parliament building in Athens on Sunday.  She blamed government corruption for the debt crisis but said ordinary people would end up paying for it.  "I think that we all have to pay things that we're not responsible about. People in Greece haven't created the crisis," she said.  In Washington on Sunday, Greek Finance Minister George Papaconstantinou said he had no doubts that his country would be able to secure the emergency aid, and warned market speculators betting against Greece would "lose their shirts."  Papaconstantinou told reporters that he expected the IMF board would approve its portion of the loan support within the first 10 days of May and that approval would be in time to meet a large payment of 11.3 (b) billion US dollars on Greek bonds due on May 19.  He said that he expected the support from the IMF and the European governments to be provided at the same time, but said if some European parliaments were delayed in approving their contributions, the IMF support could be used to obtain bridge financing from other sources.  ===============  Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com (ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.

Wide of crowd outside bullfighting ring, ambulance driving away  STORYLINE  One of Spain's top matadors was seriously injured in Mexico when a 1,100-pound (500-kilogram) bull gored him in the groin and hoisted him into the air, causing major blood loss, his manager said on Sunday.  Jose Tomas received a transfusion of eight litres (17 pints) of blood after being gored on Saturday by a beast named Navegante in the Mexican city of Aguascalientes.  The bull's horn penetrated 4 inches (10 centimetres) into Tomas' groin and punctured a vein and an artery, Tomas' manager told Spanish radio.  Tomas, one of Spain's most popular matadors, has a relatively rare blood type; A- , and bled so profusely that bullring officials appealed over the arena loudspeakers for compatible donors to come forward for transfusions, Boix said.  Bullring doctors operated on the 34-year-old Tomas immediately to stabilise him, and he underwent more surgery later at a hospital for more than three hours.  Television footage broadcast by Aguascalientes TV showed Tomas working the animal with his cape, when the bull made a quick turn towards him and caught him in the groin, lifting him into the air for a few seconds and shaking its head with Tomas dangling from its left horn.  Once on the ground, Tomas rolled away and held his hands up as if to say he was OK, but a large, dark red stain was already spreading through his glittering gold suit.  The newspaper El Pais said Tomas' injury was so serious that the bullring doctors who first operated on him did not even take time to anesthetise him.  Tomas is known for a daring bullfighting style in which he gets particularly close to the bull.  His full name is Jose Tomas Roman Martin, but he goes by just Jose Tomas.  In Spain, he has been something of an enigma: in 2002, at the peak of his career, Tomas suddenly retired without saying why.  Tomas returned to the ring in 2007 to tremendous fanfare - he told one interviewer that "living without bullfighting is not living."  Since then he has suffered a number of serious gorings in Spain.  ===============  Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com (ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.

Wide of blue stork walking in field  STORYLINE  The village of Biegen in Germany has become home to a rare specimen which is ruffling feathers: a stork with a striking blue plumage.  How the normally white bird got its unusual colouring isn't certain, although experts believe the most likely explanation is that the stork took a bath in some blue paint or coloured water. Storks migrate long distances and often rest in rubbish dumps where it is thought this individual may have picked up its distinctive hue.  Tourists have travelled from around Germany to catch a glimpse of the animal.  "It is the first blue stork in my life," said one visitor from Berlin.  Local restaurant owner Martin Pfeiffer is selling postcards of the stork and its white mate and he says the bird has been good for business generally.  "It became an attraction in Biegen. It is good for the economy, for the small economy of Biegen, starting with the small carpentry, to the cafes and restaurants," Pfeiffer said. ===============  Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com (ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
