Fountain with police crossing in front 13. Police car, police, bystanders STORYLINE: The white marble statues of the beautiful Trevi Fountain in Rome were lapped by red water on Friday afternoon, a spectacle that drew crowds of astonished tourists and Romans. A man threw a bucket of red paint or dye into the fountain, coloring the waters of the 18th century monument bright red in front of a crowd of astonished tourists and locals, witnesses said. The man escaped, leaving the fountain, which normally runs on a closed cycle, spouting red water. Police arrived at the scene and technicians briefly shut off the water before restoring a clear flow. Trevi fountain was completed in 1762 and is is one of the most popular tourist sites in the world. The monument, designed by architect Nicola Salvi, was made famous by Federico Fellini's 1960 movie "La Dolce Vita," which featured actress Anita Ekberg seductively splashing in the fountain's waters. Many visitors flip a coin into the fountain, as tradition says that doing so promises a prompt return to the Eternal City. Police officials did not answer calls seeking comment on the incident. The news agency ANSA reported that a box was found near the fountain containing leaflets by a group that claimed responsibility for the act. The leaflets said the red paint was a protest for expenses incurred in organising the Rome Film Festival and symbolically referred to the event's red carpet, ANSA reported. Keyword wacky bizarre

ENTERTAINMENT DAILY: ENT3- CHOCOLAT VILLAGE
TAPE_NUMBER: EF01/0290 IN_TIME: 14:24:46 LENGTH: 04:35 SOURCES: APTN/MIRAMAX RESTRICTIONS: No re-use/re-sale of film/video/tv clips without clearance FEED: log with tape SCRIPT: xfa Eng/French/Nat STORY: FRENCH VILLAGE WHERE CHOCOLAT WAS FILMED LOCATION: FLAVIGNY DATE: MARCH 2001 If the Academy Awards are just around corner, then Miramax Films will not be far away from the headlines. That is one of the rules of the Oscars. They dominated last year with The Cider House Rules, the year before with Shakespeare in Love. They were also responsible for Good Will Hunting, The English Patient, Pulp Fiction, Life is Beautiful and The Talented Mr Ripley. So with this kind of record it would be a brave man who bet against them earning more Oscars for this year's entry, CHOCOLAT. Lasse Halstrom's acclaimed film has four nominations Best Actress in a Leading Role for Juliette Binoche, Best Actress in a Supporting Role for Judi Dench, Best Music, Original Score for Rachel Portman, Best Picture and Best Writing, Screenplay Based on Material Previously Produced or Published for Robert Nelson Jacobs. The story is set in 1960, in small town France. Vianne Rocher (Juliette Binoche) and her pre-teen daughter move into town and open a chocolate shop just as lent is beginning. The town's small-minded mayor (Alfred Molina) can't accept this and does his best to shut her down, but her warm personality and incredible chocolates manage to win over many townsfolk. APTN visited the village of Flavigny, where much of the film was shot. Has the film changed anything in the town? Does the film reflect the attitudes of the town in anyway? According to bar owner, Bernard Meugnot, he did get a clip around the ear if he forgot his catechism. But that was back in the 1950s. But the pastries were very real too. The chocolate cakes, the tarts, the nut confections and creamy morsels were as sensual as anything conjured up by actress Juliette Binoche in "Chocolat." Every afternoon one of the grandmothers would bake, according to Meugnot, who was born in this pocket-sized Burgundy village, and the boys would compare notes and then all go over and eat it. There is no Oscar for best location, sadly. Flavigny, set amid Burgundy's hilly vineyards and sheep farms about 170 miles south of Paris, with little more than 400 people, matched perfectly Lasse Halstrom's vision of the village described in Joanne Harris' novel. With its narrow houses and looming stone church, it seemed to speak an entire dialogue of its own in "Chocolat." Flavigny might not win any Hollywood statuette on Sunday, but it is bracing for a different sort of prize: an influx of thousands of filmgoers, who will certainly want to see for themselves how such a place can still exist these days. Flavigny will not disappoint. "This village is frozen in time," says the mayor Gerard Fontheneau, 65. "That's why they chose Flavigny. It is very, very authentic." "Chocolat," of course, is a fantasy. For one thing, there is no chocolate shop in Flavigny: the movie's storefront is in reality a grange owned by an Englishman. The school closed six years ago, and the village children now travel to classes in a bigger town. The village is also too small to have its own hair salon: the one in "Chocolat," which served as the women's gossip centre, is in fact an old house in the heart of Flavigny. Fontheneau, a soft-spoken retired businessman, hardly resembles the film's tyrannical mayor. And the 16th century Comte de Reynaud, looming over the square doesn't exist. Flavigny's Place de l'Eglise is a quiet haven dominated instead by the huge, 800-year-old Saint Genest Church. Flavigny's 8th-century Abbey of Saint Peter has, since 1923, housed the village's only industry: an anis-candy factory, where 18 people still make sweet discs by hand. The Troubat family runs it. Hallstrom's film crew last year was not embraced by all of Flavigny's residents. More than anyone, old Nicolas Troubat, now 68, embodies that crusty generation which for so long has resisted the outside world, and whose toughness provided the grist for Vianne in "Chocolat." "We had a lot of doubts about the film," says Troubat. "Flavigny people love the Catholic church, and the film brought out the weakness in the church. It pained me." But during six weeks of shooting "Chocolat" in Flavigny, the villagers began sensing something else: memories of a sweeter past, which still lives on in communities like this. According to Jacques Vanderwalle, it brought people together. It reminded them how the village used to be. And while Flavigny has no chocolatier, "Chocolat" captured one of the most treasured aspects of Burgundy: its food. "This is a magical place, I cannot explain it," says Roberto Livraghi, the Italian head of the European Golf Association, who two years ago bought a house in Flavigny. Now, his friends include the village plumber, the bar tender and cafe owner - a far cry from his upper-class friends in Italy, he says. One of his greatest joys is attending the daily Gregorian mass sung by the Benedictine monks of Flavigny's St. Joseph de Clairval abbey. The village is now braced for an influx of tourists, anxious to experience the magic of Chocolat and Burgundy. SHOTLIST: 1. Film trailer - Chocolat 2. MS Flavigny 3.

Giorgio Armani exalted elegance in a collection that recalled the best in the designer's famed tailored look. The clean cut youths in gray silk, beige tweed or faded blue linen suits with matching shirt and tie, who came down the runway of the Armani theater in downtown Milan accompanied by top-drawer girls in dainty cocktail dresses, looked like they had just stepped out of a 1960's movie. For a more casual look Armani offered cargo bermudas worn with destructured blazers or striped cashmere cardigans. The designer was greeted with extra warm applause as he took his bow at the end of the show, looking gaunt, but wearing his trademark T-shirt and jeans work clothes. It was Armani's first public fashion appearance in several months. The designer had missed the opening of his home furnishing presentation at the Milan furniture fair in April, followed by other no shows, raising concerns about his health. In an interview with the Italian news agency ANSA at the end of May, the designer said he was battling with hepatitis. "It's an illness that takes time to get over, " he said at the time.

The 'Tomorrow Never Dies 'and ' Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon' actress told a press conference at the 12th Shanghai International Film Festival that the Chinese-language film will start shooting in China in September. She said Woo will share directing duties on the film, tentatively called 'The Sword and the Martial Arts World', with Taiwanese filmmaker Su Chao-pin, who directed the horror film ' Silk.' Yeoh is a former beauty queen who first made her name as an action star in Hong Kong. Her recent roles in 'Memoirs of a Geisha' (2005) and ' Far North' (2007) have veered toward drama, but the 46-year-old actress said she still feels fit enough to handle action. The film with Yeoh is Woo's first new project since his $80 million two-part historical epic ' Red Cliff.' The Hong Kong native was supposed to next direct ' 1949 ', an epic romance set against the Chinese civil war in that year, but the project fell through because of a dispute with its Taiwanese investors.

STILLS showing Madonna and her adopted son, Malawi-born David Banda, arriving at London's Heathrow airport from New York STORYLINE Madonna's new daughter was believed to have arrived in London from Malawi early on Saturday, according to two separate sources. An airport employee said that three-year-old Chifundo "Mercy" James flew out on a private jet late on Friday. The girl, the second child Madonna has adopted from Malawi, was reportedly accompanied on the flight by a nanny, a child nurse and a third aide. The employee said the plane was headed to London, with a stop in neighbouring South Africa. He was speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorised to discuss the matter. Meanwhile, a person familiar with the adoption process said the girl should have reached the British capital on Saturday morning. The source also was not authorised to discuss the matter publicly, Madonna has homes in England and in the United States. It was not clear where the singer herself was on Saturday. She arrived at London's Heathrow airport from New York on Friday, accompanied by her adopted son, David, and was rumoured to have left the country again. Reports that Madonna would in the next few days visit her charity's projects in Malawi could not be confirmed. Madonna's request to adopt Mercy was originally rejected in April when a lower court that said she had not spent enough time in the African nation. However, the appeal court ruled on 12 June that that was a narrow interpretation based on old laws and that "in this global village a man can have more than one place at which he resides". It said the singer's commitment to helping disadvantaged children also should have been taken into account in the decision. Madonna has founded a charity, Raising Malawi, which helps feed, educate and provide medical care for some of Malawi's more than one (M) million orphans, half of whom have lost a parent to AIDS. Madonna met Mercy in 2006 at Kondanani Children's Village, an orphanage in Bvumbwe, just south of Blantyre. It was the same year she began the process of adopting David, whom she found at another orphanage in central Malawi. The girl's 18-year-old mother was unmarried and died soon after she gave birth. Since Madonna moved to adopt the girl, a dispute has arisen between the girl's maternal relatives, who agreed to the adoption, and a man who says he is the father and wants to care for the girl himself, but acknowledged he had never seen Mercy. Madonna first traveled to Malawi in 2006 while filming a documentary on its devastating poverty and AIDS crisis. In addition to David, the 50-year-old has two other children: Lourdes, 12, and Rocco, eight.

There were no flames and no one was injured. Former actor Schwarzenegger - who played the hero in numerous action movies - seemed unfazed about the scare, using the Twitter micro-blogging service to tell his followers about the incident.

Queues of visitors lined up - waiting to be the first to visit the new home of the Acropolis antiquities. Entry was a nominal charge of one euro (1.40 US dollars) until the end of the year, when it will increase to five euro (seven US dollars). The first four days of tickets were already completely sold out through internet sales. Crouching 300 yards (metres) from the Parthenon's slender bones like a skewed stack of glass boxes, the 130 (M) million euro (180 (M) million US dollars) museum provides an airy setting for some of the best surviving works of classical sculpture that once adorned the Acropolis. By day, printed glass panels filter the harsh sunlight while revealing the ancient citadel in the background. The internal lighting projects the battered statues outward at night, contrasting with the floodlit ruins on the low hill. The museum is the centrepiece of national efforts to regain the Parthenon Marbles - the two and a half thousand-year-old sculptures that were removed from the ancient citadel by a 19th century British diplomat. The sculptures were part of a stunning 160-metres (525-foot) marble frieze of a religious procession that adorned the top of the ancient citadel's grandest structure, the Parthenon. Britain's then envoy, Lord Elgin, pried them off the building in the early 1800s while Greece was still an unwilling part of the Ottoman Empire. Facing bankruptcy, he eventually sold the artworks to the British Museum, where they have been displayed ever since.

Wide of Stonehenge with people in front STORYLINE Thousands of spectators gathered on Sunday to celebrate the summer solstice at the ancient stone circle of Stonehenge in southern England. The prehistoric monument in southern England is the site of an annual gathering marking the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere. Warm weather and the fact that this year's solstice fell on a weekend helped draw a record crowd. Police said some 35-thousand people had gathered throughout the night though many had dispersed by morning. Police said the annual party at the mysterious monument was mostly peaceful. Stonehenge, which sits on Salisbury Plain about 80 miles (130 kilometres) southwest of London, is one of Britain's most popular tourist attractions, visited by more than 750-thousand people a year. It was built in three phases between 3,000 B.C. and 1,600 B.C. Mystery surrounds the monument's original purpose. Some theories hold that the stone circle was a grave site because 350 burial mounds surround the structure. In May 2009, archaeologists found evidence indicating that pilgrims perceived the stones to have healing powers. Some other experts assert that the structure was part of an ancient astronomical calendar. The solstice is one of the few times during the year that visitors can get close enough to touch the rocks. English Heritage, the organisation which maintains the site, closed Stonehenge at the solstice after clashes between police and revellers in 1985. It began allowing full access again in 2000 and the celebrations since have been largely peaceful.

Wide exterior of museum ACROPOLIS MUSEUM OPENS ITS DOORS The long-awaited Acropolis Museum opened its doors to the public on Sunday (21JUN09). Queues of visitors lined up - waiting to be the first to visit the new home of the Acropolis antiquities. Entry was a nominal charge of one euro (1.40 US dollars) until the end of the year, when it will increase to five euro (seven US dollars). The first four days of tickets were already completely sold out through internet sales. Crouching 300 yards (metres) from the Parthenon's slender bones like a skewed stack of glass boxes, the 130 (M) million euro (180 (M) million US dollars) museum provides an airy setting for some of the best surviving works of classical sculpture that once adorned the Acropolis. By day, printed glass panels filter the harsh sunlight while revealing the ancient citadel in the background. The internal lighting projects the battered statues outward at night, contrasting with the floodlit ruins on the low hill. The museum is the centrepiece of national efforts to regain the Parthenon Marbles - the two and a half thousand-year-old sculptures that were removed from the ancient citadel by a 19th century British diplomat. The sculptures were part of a stunning 160-metres (525-foot) marble frieze of a religious procession that adorned the top of the ancient citadel's grandest structure, the Parthenon. Britain's then envoy, Lord Elgin, pried them off the building in the early 1800s while Greece was still an unwilling part of the Ottoman Empire. Facing bankruptcy, he eventually sold the artworks to the British Museum, where they have been displayed ever since.

The parade, the country's largest, drew a wide cross section of costumes, from elaborately adorned participants wearing feathered headdresses, and glossy high heels to t-shirt and jean-clad participants wearing multi-coloured necklaces. Floats blasting music carried dozens of dancing, costumed young people, as others passed out condoms. Gays, lesbians and straight supporters come from many states throughout the country to support the battle against homophobia in a country where homosexuality is not generally accepted. "This (parade) gives a great opportunity to those who are heterosexuals to explain people's sexuality to their children in the best way possible, to show them how to respect others and how diverse the world is," said Alvaro Vadilla, who came dressed as a boxer. The parade, which started at midday, continued until the evening in spite of a late afternoon downpour. The parade began at the monument of the Angel of Independence and ended in the city's main Zocalo plaza.

Giorgio Armani exalted elegance in a collection that recalled the best in the designer's famed tailored look. The clean cut youths in gray silk, beige tweed or faded blue linen suits with matching shirt and tie, who came down the runway of the Armani theater in downtown Milan accompanied by top-drawer girls in dainty cocktail dresses, looked like they had just stepped out of a 1960's movie. For a more casual look Armani offered cargo Bermudas worn with destructured blazers or striped cashmere cardigans. The designer was greeted with extra warm applause as he took his bow at the end of the show, looking gaunt, but wearing his trademark T-shirt and jeans work clothes. It was Armani's first public fashion appearance in several months. The designer had missed the opening of his home furnishing presentation at the Milan furniture fair in April, followed by other no shows, raising concerns about his health. In an interview with the Italian news agency ANSA at the end of May, the designer said he was battling with hepatitis. "It's an illness that takes time to get over," he said at the time.

While promoting her new film 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" Megan Fox while in Los Angeles, California on Friday (19 June 2009) talked about the comparisons that won't go away.

The actress has recently shot to fame and with new stardom comes dating rumors namely with her co-star Shia LaBeouf after her engagement to actor Brian Austin Green ended. "We have just a real good natural chemistry," Megan Fox said about Shia LaBeouf. "I enjoy the shit out of him. Where are you going to air this? You are going to have to bleep me a lot. I enjoy his personality a lot he is really witty. Like absurdly so he is just relentless in how funny he is.

I get it makes sense to me but it is just a professional relationship, regardless of what my wishes and hopes would be." Fox added, "I wouldn't say its gross the thought of it but they are definitely just rumors." When the Tennessee native hit the big time with her first 'ransformers' film in 2007 she was quite timid in the interviews but recently has made headlines with what she proclaims is her 'loud mouth.' "Well it (the first 'Transformers' film) was my first movie and I was just really overwhelmed and it's such a ridiculous movie to have be your first movie.

The actress is ready to move on from robots and is looking forward to her next film written by Oscar winner Diablo Cody of 'Juno' fame. In the new film "Jennifer's Body," due out in September sexy Megan Fox becomes a man-eater literally. "That movie ('Jennifer's Body') the way Karyn (Kusama) directed it is its sort of feels like a 80's genre film and Diablo Cody wrote it so the dialogue is brilliant.

The 'Tomorrow Never Dies 'and ' Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon' actress told a press conference at the 12th Shanghai International Film Festival that the Chinese-language film will start shooting in China in September. She said Woo will share directing duties on the film, tentatively called 'The Sword and the Martial Arts World', with Taiwanese filmmaker Su Chao-pin, who directed the horror film ' Silk.' Yeoh is a former beauty queen who first made her name as an action star in Hong Kong. Her recent roles in 'Memoirs of a Geisha' (2005) and ' Far North' (2007) have veered toward drama, but the 46-year-old actress said she still feels fit enough to handle action. The film with Yeoh is Woo's first new project since his $80 million two-part historical epic ' Red Cliff.' The Hong Kong native was supposed to next direct ' 1949 ', an epic romance set against the Chinese civil war in that year, but the project fell through because of a dispute with its Taiwanese investors.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Abraham Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League: "How could he (Rev. Raniero Cantalamessa) not understand that anti-Semitism which brought about pogroms and expulsions and inquisitions and death can't be compared to a crisis in the Church, a tragedy in the Church." 13. Foxman talking on the phone 14. SOUNDBITE: (English) Abraham Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League: "It's one thing for a priest somewhere in a parish to say it on Good Friday. It's quite another for a senior priest at the Vatican in the presence of the Pope when this is broadcast to, through the world, through the catholic world - says it. So it has greater ramifications. But in terms of Catholic-Jewish relations I think it's a blip, I think it's not that serious. It's just sad and offensive but I think the relationship is sturdy enough that it has withstood much worse body blows than this absurd analogy." 15. Foxman passing by camera in the Anti-Defamation League offices STORYLINE Jewish leaders in the US on Friday denounced a Vatican official's likening of anti-Catholicism during the church's escalating abuse crisis to "collective violence" against Jews, but predicted it would not deal a severe blow to the two faiths' often-strained relationship. During a Good Friday sermon, Pope Benedict XVI's personal preacher compared accusations against the pope and the Catholic church in the sexual abuse of children scandal to "collective violence" suffered by the Jews. The priest, the Rev. Raniero Cantalamessa, quoted a letter from a Jewish friend who wrote that the accusations reminded him of the "more shameful aspects of anti-Semitism." "How could he? And on this day, on Good Friday, in the Vatican. How ironic. Good Friday for so many years throughout history was a day of anti-Semitism inspired by the Church," said Abraham Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League. There was a long-held Catholic belief that Jews were collectively responsible for executing Christ, and a landmark achievement of the Second Vatican Council of the 1960s was a declaration stating the Jews should not be blamed for the crucifixion. "Anti-Semitism, which brought about pogroms and expulsions and inquisitions and death, can't be compared to a crisis in the Church, a tragedy in the Church," Foxman said. Hours after Good Friday mass the Vatican sought to distance itself from the incident. A Vatican spokesman said that remarks are not the church's official position and that such parallelism can lead to misunderstandings. "It's one thing for a priest somewhere in a parish to say it on Good Friday. It's quite another for a senior priest at the Vatican in the presence of the Pope," Foxman said but called the whole incident a "blip in Catholic-Jewish relations: While Pope Benedict XVI has visited synagogues, travelled to Israel and reached out to Jewish leaders, the relationship has not always been smooth. In 2007, Benedict restored a Good Friday prayer for the conversion of Jews that Jewish leaders deemed offensive. Another sore spot is the ongoing sainthood cause for Pope Pius XII, whom some Jews believe did not do enough to stop the Holocaust.

Fluch looking at photographs 11. Close up of photographs showing Fluch and his sister 12. Close up of photograph of Fluch STORYLINE: An Austrian man who says he was abused by a priest in the 1970s said on Friday the recent cases of clerical sexual abuse reported in Austria are "not even the tip of the iceberg", as the Vatican remains engulfed in its worst crisis in years, with a number of other cases having emerged that indicate the Catholic Church's hierarchy did not take action when notified of abuse. Klaus Fluch says a local priest sexually abused him for five years between the ages of 10 and 15 while he was a student at the Christian school in St. Gallen, central Austria. The priest was his Religious Education teacher and a family friend, Fluch says. "This priest was very important in our family, to my mother, and therefore I could not even imagine that whatever he was doing could be something evil. Much later, I realised what really had happened," he said. Fluch said he did not receive any support from the church when he reported the abuse many years later. Reports of new cases of clerical abuse have been cropping up almost daily in Austria, where the country's top Catholic, Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn, held a service for victims and acknowledged church guilt in the controversy this week. But Fluch criticised the Austrian Catholic church for "repressing" the truth about alleged cases of abuse in the past. "I find it ridiculous, the way all this is being handled by the church, but I didn't expect anything different," he said. Fluch is member of an Austrian group of self-described victims and experts called the "Platform Of Those Affected By Church Violence", which has set up a new hot line for victims of abuse by clergy and church workers. The group says more than 150 people have called the group's new hot line since it was set up on March 23, with about a third claiming they had been sexually abused and the rest reporting physical or verbal abuse. Fluch said the people "who have come forward so far are not even the tip of the iceberg, because I am on the phone for up to ten hours a day with victims who keep coming to me." He said the people calling the hot line often turn down offers of professional help. "They simply want to talk, and they talk to me," he said. Abuse cases with the pontiff's fingerprints, when he was then Cardinal Ratzinger and headed the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith, the Vatican office that typically handled cases of abuse in confessionals, have mushroomed in recent weeks. Fluch's case is not one of these, but adds to the crisis the Catholic Church is facing in Austria and beyond.

Wide of Arch of Constantine, pope standing on hill in red cloak STORYLINE: Pope Benedict XVI knelt in prayer at Rome's Colosseum on Friday as the faithful carried a tall, slim wooden cross in Rome's traditional torch-lit Via Crucis procession to commemorate Christ's suffering and death. Thousands of people clutching prayerbooks and candles crowded around the ancient arena on Good Friday. Benedict delivered brief remarks at the end of the 90-minute ceremony, saying the faithful had meditated on his (referring to Jesus) suffering and discovered how deep his love was and is for us. He then blessed the crowd, prompting cheers and calls of "Long live the pope." Earlier in the day at a solemn Good Friday service, Pope Benedict XVI's personal preacher has stirred controversy, likening allegations that the pontiff had covered up sex abuse cases to the "more shameful aspects of anti-Semitism." But within hours, facing a storm of criticism at the comparison, the Vatican felt it necessary to distance the pope from the preacher's remarks. Both Jewish and victims' groups responded that it was inappropriate to compare the discomfort being experienced by the church leadership in the sex abuse scandal to the violence that culminated in the Holocaust. The Vatican has been on the defensive in recent days, saying the church has been singled out and collectively stereotyped for the problem of paedophilia, which it says is a society-wide issue. Invoking any comparison with anti-Semitism was particularly sensitive on Good Friday, itself a delicate day in a decades-long effort by Jews and Catholics to overcome a legacy of mistrust. There was a long-held Catholic belief that Jews were collectively responsible for executing Christ, and a landmark achievement of the Second Vatican Council of the 1960s was a declaration stating the Jews should not be blamed for the crucifixion. Victims say Benedict - both as a former archbishop of Munich and later as a Vatican cardinal directing the Holy See's policy on handling abuse cases - was part of a culture of cover-up and confidentiality basically devised to protect church hierarchy.

Pilgrims and Calvaire Miracle crucifix STORYLINE: Christian worshippers have marked Good Friday, the day of Jesus' crucifixion, in Latin America with prayer, marches and song. In the southern Mexican town of Taxco worshippers marked the occasion late on Thursday with a large procession re-enacting the Passion of Christ. Faithful and visitors alike gather in the southern colonial town every year for a procession that is most famous for its participants who bear large bundles of thorny sticks tied to their shoulders. The men carry their bundles to re-enact Jesus Christ carrying the cross. They prepare throughout the entire year for this special ceremony which ends with penitents whipping themselves at the local cathedral in front of the altar to symbolise Christ's suffering. Thousands of tourists attend the religious parades each day in Taxco during the holy week. In the Mexico City neighbourhood of Iztapalapa, thousands of the faithful donned crowns of thorns as performers carried out yet another representation of the Passion of the Christ. As it has become customary, massive crowds gathered to see one of the largest and most traditional representations of Good Friday in Mexico. 1,200 policemen were deployed across the main avenues where the procession took place to guarantee the safety of visitors and participants. In Haiti, thousands of Christian pilgrims trekked to the countryside on Friday (2 April) to climb a hill to pray, worship and sing hymns in French and Creole at a mountaintop crucifix called the Calvaire Miracle. The large silver cross is near Haiti's border with the Dominican Republic Buses and trucks began arriving before dawn with passengers preparing to hike up the rock and dirt path littered with brambles. Pilgrims came with prayers following the January earthquake that devastated the country and killed more than 200,000 people. Many came to grieve or ask for help. Some clutched passports, praying for help in securing visas to leave the country.

Various of police searching apartment STORYLINE: Russian investigators have identified one of the two female suicide bombers who struck Moscow's subway as a 17-year-old from the North Caucasus who reportedly was the widow of a slain Islamist rebel. Federal investigators identified one of the attackers as Dzhanet Abdurakhmanova, a resident of the southern province of Dagestan. They said they were still trying to identify the second bomber and track down the organisers of the attack. The Russian newspaper Kommersant published what it said was a picture of Abdurakhmanova, also known as Abdullayeva, dressed in a black Muslim headscarf and holding a pistol. A man with his arm around her, also holding a gun, is identified as Umalat Magomedov, whom the paper describes as an Islamist militant leader killed by government forces in December. AP Television has no independent means of verifying the identities of the couple seen in the images. Investigators did not confirm that the photo published in Kommersant was that of the bomber. A Kommersant report, giving no sources, said the second bomber has been tentatively identified as 20-year-old Markha Ustarkhanova from Chechnya. On Thursday, the paper said she was the widow of a militant leader killed last October while preparing to assassinate Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov, who is backed by the Kremlin. In recent months, police and security forces have killed at least two high-profile Islamic militants, but they have been unable to capture the veteran Chechen militant Doku Umarov, who has claimed responsibility for the Moscow subway attacks. The FSB released footage on Friday of what it claimed was the aftermath of a raid against a group of militants in Khasavyurt, a town in northern Dagestan, on 31 December 2009, in which it says Magomedov was killed. The FSB also distributed photographs it claims were seized in the raid, showing a group of armed men, one of whom bears a resemblance to the man in the Kommersant photograph identified as Magomedov. AP Television has no independent means of verifying the authenticity of the video or the photographs, which were broadcast by state-owned television channel RU-RTR. The number of dead from Monday's subway bombings rose to 40 on Friday after a man died in the hospital of his injuries. At least 90 others were injured. Female suicide bombers from the North Caucasus are referred to in Russia as "black widows" because many of them are the wives, or other relatives, of militants killed by security forces. Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and Prime Minister Vladimir Putin have called for those accused of attacks to be destroyed and on Friday, Medvedev broadened the targets to include their accomplices. Russian police and security forces have long been accused of seizing people suspected of aiding militants. Some people were tortured and many disappeared, and human rights workers trying to document the abuses have also been slain, kidnapped, threatened or have disappeared.

Various of Chavez and Putin meeting inside palace STORYLINE Russia has offered to help Venezuela set up its own space industry, including a satellite launch site, as Prime Minister Vladimir Putin makes his first visit to the South American country. Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez announced Russia's offer before Putin arrived on Friday, saying officials would discuss the possibility of setting up a satellite launcher and a factory Chavez didn't give details, or say how much that might cost. The two countries are also discussing weapons deals, some of which are new, Chavez said on Thursday night in televised remarks, without giving details. Chavez has built close ties with Russia in recent years and has spent more than 4 (b) billion US dollars on Russian weapons since 2005, including helicopters, fighter jets and 100,000 Kalashnikov rifles. Russian and Venezuelan officials also planned to sign new agreements for energy projects in Venezuela, as well as industrial, commercial and agriculture projects. Chavez also reiterated that Russia will help Venezuela develop nuclear energy - a plan he has mentioned previously that has yet to take shape. Chavez said Venezuela was going to develop atomic energy with peaceful aims. As part of Putin's visit, he and Chavez toured the Russian tall ship Kruzenshtern, which is docked in Venezuela on a visit. Chavez chatted with Russian sailors through an interpreter and presented a copy of a sword used by South American independence hero Simon Bolivar, telling Putin he would show him the real sword used by Bolivar - the namesake of Chavez's socialist-inspired "Bolivarian Revolution." Putin also visited Bolivar's tomb in Caracas before holding talks in private at the presidential palace. Political analysts in Moscow say Russia is drawn to Venezuela because of the its anti-US rhetoric above everything else, but they also note that business deals have helped cement the growing relationship.

These issues should be resolved by the correct means instead of imposing pressure on other countries. It is an undesirable approach to try to have negotiations and pressure applied simultaneously." 11. Wide pan of Jalili leaving STORYLINE Tehran's top nuclear envoy called for negotiations without threat of sanctions on Friday, following meetings in Beijing in the wake of US reports claiming that China had dropped its opposition to possible new UN measures against Iran. Saeed Jalili sidestepped questions on whether China had confirmed to him that it had changed its opposition to a fourth round of UN sanctions against Tehran for its nuclear programme. The secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council maintained that both his country and China sought a return to the negotiating table. "Our Chinese friends all say this problem can only be solved through negotiations and peaceful means and some big countries should give up their incorrect actions. Pressuring through sanctions will be ineffective," he told reporters. China has veto power in the UN Security Council and its support would be key to passing a resolution against Iran, which is suspected of developing nuclear weapons. Tehran claims its nuclear programme is for peaceful power generation. China has refused to confirm reports that it is willing to consider new sanctions. A Foreign Ministry spokesman on Thursday said that Beijing was "concerned about the current situation", but repeated the country's long-time stance of wanting the dispute settled through negotiations. US President Barack Obama raised the issue of Iran's nuclear programme on Friday when he spoke on the phone for an hour with his Chinese counterpart Hu Jintao, welcoming his decision to attend a nuclear security summit in Washington in less than two weeks. "Obama underscored the importance of working together to ensure that Iran lives up to its international obligations," a White House statement said. China depends on oil and gas rich Iran for 11 percent of its energy needs and last year became Tehran's biggest trading partner, according to Iranian figures. China traditionally opposes sanctions. And although it went along with three earlier UN resolutions against Iran, Beijing has been a vocal opponent of a fourth round, insisting that further negotiations with Tehran were needed. But US officials say a Chinese representative made a commitment in a phone call on Wednesday with officials of the US, Russia, Britain, France and Germany to discuss specifics of a potential resolution, and that on that basis, the US would press ahead with efforts to pass such a measure. The officials cautioned that this did not mean there was a full consensus yet on UN sanctions. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the diplomatic talks were ongoing. The Obama administration is hoping to get a UN resolution on Iran passed by the end of April. According to well-informed UN diplomats, speaking on condition of anonymity, the proposed new sanctions would target Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guard and toughen existing measures against Iran's shipping, banking and insurance sectors.

STORYLINE Thailand's anti-government protesters, known as the Red Shirts, converged on the US Embassy in Bangkok on Friday to hand in a letter to US Secretary of State Hilary Rodham Clinton, thanking the US government for supporting non-violent, democratic means of demonstration. The protesters have been camped in the historic district of Bangkok since 12 March. They are asking Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva to dissolve Parliament and call fresh elections. The Red Shirts are mostly supporters of ex-leader Thaksin Shinawatra, deposed in a 2006 military coup, and pro-democracy activists who opposed the army takeover. They have blocked major roads, snarled traffic and raised concerns of violence that have prompted several dozen countries to issue travel warnings. Also on Friday, hundreds of self-proclaimed "pro-peace" demonstrators, wearing pink shirts, gathered in front of a statue of Thai King Bhumibol Adulyade to voice their opposition to the dissolution of parliament. The so-called Pink Shirts are pro-government and say they are frustrated by their rivals' noisy, traffic-clogging protests that are hurting Bangkok businesses.

SOUNDBITE: (Arabic) Fuad Saniora, Prime Minister: "I nominated Sheik Saad Hariri so he can be designated to form the new government." 17. Various of meeting Suleiman and Aoun STORYLINE Lebanon's president consulted with lawmakers on Friday on their choice for a prime minister to unify the nation after parliamentary elections in which a pro-Western coalition defeated a Hezbollah-led alliance. Political and sectarian tensions have sharply declined following the June 7 election as rival political leaders seek a fresh start. The new 128-member legislature on Thursday re-elected Hezbollah ally Nabih Berri as parliament speaker for the fifth consecutive term, a move expected to smooth the way for a unity government. In the same spirit, parliamentary majority leader Saad Hariri is tipped to be the next prime minister with support from both camps. Saad Hariri's father, Rafik, held the post for 10 years. He was killed by a truck bomb in 2005 after resigning. The assassination sparked massive protests against Syria, which many including Saad Hariri blamed for the attack. The demonstrations, coupled with intense international pressure, forced Syria to pull its tens of thousands of troops out of Lebanon, ending nearly three decades of Syrian control of its smaller neighbour. The consultations by President Michel Suleiman are expected to last through Saturday, after which he would designate a premier, who will begin consultations with parliamentary blocs to form a Cabinet that can win a vote of confidence in the legislature. Under Lebanon's sectarian divisions of political power, the prime minister must be a Sunni Muslim, the president a Maronite Catholic and the parliamentary speaker a Shiite Muslim. In a move that is likely to facilitate the formation of such a unity government, Hariri met with Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah on Thursday night, according to a statement from the two and footage from Hezbollah controlled broadcaster Al-Manar.

Wide of news conference 9. SOUNDBITE: (English) Sergey Lavrov, Russian Foreign Minister: "We want to achieve full-fledged resumption of direct negotiations of the peace process between the parties themselves on all tracks, but with the certain priority given to the Palestinian track, and also to promote the practical implementation of the Arab peace initiative beginning with small steps on all sides. The initiative which eventually will bring full, normal, cooperative relations between Israel and all Arab states." 10. Wide of news conference STORYLINE: The Quartet of Mideast negotiators, taking advantage of a "historic" opportunity for Mideast peace with the new Obama administration, urged Israel on Friday to freeze all settlement activity and to lift its blockade of the Gaza Strip. The Quartet - the United States, Russia, United Nations and European Union - met on Friday for its first formal session since US President Barack Obama came to office. It issued a statement as the participants attended a meeting of the Group of Eight foreign ministers, who made an identical call for an end to all settlement construction and a lifting of the Gaza blockade. Israel has rejected demands that it halt all settlement building, saying it must accommodate "natural growth" in the Israeli enclaves. However the Quartet urged Israel to freeze all settlement activity, including natural growth, and to dismantle settlement outposts erected since March 2001. The negotiators also called for a "sustained reopening" of Gaza's crossing points to ensure a regular flow of people, as well as humanitarian and commercial goods into the isolated territory. Gaza's borders were closed by Israel and Egypt after the takeover two years ago of the territory by Hamas, considered a terrorist organisation by many in the West. Hamas militants have repeatedly fired rockets from Gaza on Israeli border towns, the reason Israel cited as starting a three-week war on Gaza's Hamas leaders in the winter. Israel has allowed some humanitarian aid and food supplies into Gaza, but the reconstruction of Gaza's war damage, including thousands of damaged or destroyed homes, is on hold because Israel won't allow in cement or other building materials. The call of both the Quartet and the G-8 for a settlement freeze signalled broad international support for Obama's Mideast policy. The Bush administration had accepted the need for some settlement growth, something the Palestinians long rejected. But just last week, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton reiterated that the United States seeks a halt to settlement activity in the West Bank, saying no informal agreement that Israel may have reached with the Bush administration was valid. Clinton spoke after a meeting with Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, who said he wanted the Bush administration understandings to remain. The United States and Israel have at least publicly given no ground in their opposing views, though Israeli officials say they are trying to find a formula agreeable to Washington that would allow at least limited construction. The US special Mideast peace envoy, George Mitchell, denied the United States and Israel were heading in opposite directions under Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, saying the US and Israel were "close friends and allies." The settlement issue is a major obstacle both to the resumption of Israeli-Palestinian negotiations and to an eventual peace deal. Nearly 300,000 Israelis live in West Bank settlements, along with 180,000 Israelis in Jewish neighbourhoods of east Jerusalem. The Palestinians seek both areas, captured by Israel in the 1967 Mideast war, as parts of a future state. Earlier this month, Netanyahu grudgingly yielded to Obama's demand that Israel endorse the idea of Palestinian independence, albeit with a host of conditions the Palestinians reject. But he rejected US pressure for a settlement freeze. U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said there was a "historic" opportunity for Mideast peace, praising Obama's speech delivered in Cairo earlier this month. In the speech, Obama called for a new beginning between the United States and Muslims to confront violent extremism and advance Mideast peace.

We have to work to it that the Iranian nuclear programme is stopped, that Iran does not get possession of any nuclear weapon. In this context it is very desirable of course that the peace process in the Middle East gains momentum, that there is visible progress here because that too might send out a positive message to those forces in the Middle East who are not ready to be peaceful." 5. Wide shot Merkel and Obama STORYLINE 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 German Chancellor Angela Merkel after they conferred privately. 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," he said. Merkel backed Obama's stand adding that work had to be done to ensure the "Iranian nuclear programme is stopped, that Iran does not get possession of any nuclear weapon". 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. Incumbent President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was proclaimed the landslide winner over opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi.

The 50-year-old musical superstar died on Thursday, just as he was preparing for a series of 50 concerts starting on July 13 at London's O2 arena. He died at UCLA Medical Center after being stricken at his rented home in the posh Los Angeles neighbourhood of Holmby Hills. Across the United States, people reacted in stunned disbelief on Friday as word spread that the star had passed away. 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, moonwalking headliner. The worldwide chorus of grief united the famous - statesmen and superstars alike - and the legions of ordinary people who grew up with "Thriller" and "Beat It." Early on Friday, mourning fans placed floral tributes outside the Jackson family home in Encino in California. Fans also gathered outside another family home in Gary, Indiana, some dressed as the star and emulating his famous dance moves as his songs played on outdoor speakers. On Hollywood's Walk of Fame, fans gathered to pray around his star, and lay flowers and other tributes there. Meanwhile, US authorities were seeking to clear up the mystery surrounding Jackson's death, including whether prescription drugs could have been a factor. The autopsy was scheduled to begin on Friday, though results weren't likely to be final until toxicology tests could be completed, a process that could take several days and sometimes weeks. In a news conference on Friday, Lieutenant Ed Winter, assistant chief coroner, said the likelihood was slim that the coroner's office would have anything to release Friday and said results could take six to eight weeks. Police said they were investigating, standard procedure in high-profile cases. Michael Jackson's brother Jermaine said it was believed that Jackson suffered cardiac arrest at his home. In Washington, members of the House of Representatives honoured Jackson's memory with moment of silence. Representative Diane Watson led the tribute to the "King of Pop" saying he had left behind a legacy, while Jesse Jackson Jr lead a prayer. In Times Square on Friday morning live television billboards and news tickers continued to tell the news as tourists and commuters watched on. Among them Carmen Hooker, a 58-year-old fan from Los Angeles, expressed her sadness. "I think he was trying to make a comeback and all his trials and tribulations. I was looking forward to him making a comeback and he dies," she said. Todd Ruoff, a 38-year-old New Jersey resident said he didn't think there would be another entertainer like Jackson. "You've got to think of the moon walk, his dance, his songs, the energy, you know there is really no one who is reminiscent of that type of performer and I don't know that there is going to be another one like him." Other people heading to work in the Harlem neighbourhood in New York City stopped at a makeshift memorial outside Harlem's Apollo Theatre, where Michael Jackson performed as a child. The tributes were being written on Friday on pieces of cardboard, and on newspapers bearing his photo. Fatimah Smalls was among those paying respects, said she had felt really close to Jackson. "We're not related by blood, but his music brought us together, and that's what the love is and that's why I'm here." Fans also gathered to remember him at Detroit's famous Motown museum, where they brought flowers, cards and teddy bears to a makeshift shrine. "He was a legend and I'd like to pay my respect to him, he was great," Larry Smith, a Jackson fan said. Others described how they had grown up listening to Jackson's music and how saddened they were by his death. 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. An entertainer who united black and white music and one who broke racial barriers on MTV, becoming the first black artist to be prominently featured on the youth-oriented cable TV channel. He 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 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. As word of his death spread, radio stations began playing marathons of his hits. The public first knew him 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."

Mid of news conference 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 nearly everyone, 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, moonwalking headliner. A sombre crowd of about 100 young people gathered in Beijing for a candle lit vigil to mourn the singer's death. Michael Jackson fans arranged candles in the shape of the singer's name, carried posters of the pop star and sang his songs. In Germany, people on the streets of Berlin and Hamburg said the singer would be remembered for his catchy music and great dancing performances. 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. In London, shocked fans gathered at the Lyric Theatre, where a live show based on Jackson's record-selling album "Thriller" is being performed. Flowers were laid on the theatre steps and a fan had taped a hand-drawn poster of Jackson to the door, reading "Gone too soon." The cast of the musical told a news conference at the theatre that the show would go on, but that they were "devastated" by the news. Ricko Baird, one of the singers and a former choreographer for Michael Jackson, said he remembered the singer being "an extreme perfectionist, very serious about his work", but despite all the stories about his eccentricities, said he was just "a normal person." UK fans were waiting for news about refunds for some 750,000 tickets to his sold-out, 50-night run at the O2 arena. A spokeswoman for AEG Live, the promoters for the London concerts, declined to say how ticket refunds would be handled. She spoke on condition of anonymity, saying she was not authorised to speak to the media. There were poignant memories of Jackson's final public appearance when he came to London for a March news conference to announce his "This is it" concerts, which he said would mark his farewell to the London stage. A candlelight vigil at London's Trafalgar Square was planned to honour the singer. 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.

STILL: AP PHOTOS - NO ACCESS CANADA/ FOR BROADCAST USE ONLY - STRICTLY NO ACCESS ONLINE OR MOBILE FILE: London, UK - 20 October 2009 20. In this file photo, Britain's Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, head of the Anglican church speaks during a news conference in London. STORYLINE The spiritual leader of Church of England says the Roman Catholic church in Ireland had lost all credibility because of its mishandling of abuse by priests. The remarks released on Saturday marked the first time Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams had spoken publicly on the crisis engulfing the Catholic church. The comments came ahead of a planned visit to England and Scotland by Pope Benedict XVI later this year. Williams told the BBC the Catholic church's loss of credibility was not only a problem for the church, but also a problem for everybody in Ireland. The comments have been described as stunning and discouraging by a leading Catholic archbishop. Dublin Archbishop Diarmuid Martin said he had "rarely felt personally so discouraged" as when he heard Williams' opinions. Meanwhile, Williams telephoned Martin on Saturday, according to Britain's Press Association (PA) news agency. PA said a statement released by the Dublin Archdiocese read: "The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, this afternoon telephoned Archbishop Diarmuid Martin to express his deep sorrow and regret for difficulties which may have been created by remarks in a BBC interview concerning the credibility of the Catholic Church in Ireland," the statement said. Williams comments came in a BBC Radio 4 interview recorded on 26 March and due to be broadcast on Monday on the BBC's 'Start the Week' programme. "I was speaking to an Irish friend recently who was saying that it's quite difficult in some parts of Ireland to go down the street wearing a clerical collar now," Williams told the BBC. He described the abuse scandal in Ireland as a "colossal corporate trauma." His remarks were part of a general discussion of religion to mark Easter. Relations between the two churches were strained last year after the Vatican invited conservative Anglicans to join the Catholic Church. How many will take up the offer is still unknown. The Vatican on Saturday distanced the Pope from a storm of criticism following comments by Benedict XVI's personal preacher, who likened the tide of allegations that the leadership of the Catholic church had covered up sex abuse cases to the "more shameful aspects of anti-Semitism." The remarks came during a homily given by the the Reverend Raniero Cantalamessa during a solemn Good Friday service. Both Jewish and victims' groups responded that it was inappropriate to compare the discomfort being experienced by the church leadership in the sex abuse scandal to the violence that culminated in the Holocaust. The Vatican has been on the defensive in recent days, saying the church had been singled out and collectively stereotyped for the problem of paedophilia, which it says is a society-wide issue. Invoking any comparison with anti-Semitism was particularly sensitive on Good Friday, itself a delicate day in a decades-long effort by Jews and Catholics to overcome a legacy of mistrust. There was a long-held Catholic belief that Jews were collectively responsible for executing Christ and a landmark achievement of the Second Vatican Council of the 1960s was a declaration stating the Jews should not be blamed for the crucifixion. As the pope listened in a hushed St. Peter's Basilica, Cantalamessa likened accusations against the pontiff to "collective violence" suffered by the Jews. Benedict, 82, looked weary as he sat near the central altar at the early evening prayer service. Cantalamessa, in his reflections for the pope on the Catholic church's most solemn day, said he was inspired by a letter from an unidentified Jewish friend who was upset by the "attacks" against Benedict. Jews "know from experience what it means to be victims of collective violence and also because of this they are quick to recognise the recurring symptoms," said Cantalamessa, a Franciscan priest. Quoting from the letter, Cantalamessa said his Jewish friend was following "with indignation the violent and concentric attacks against the church, the pope and all the faithful of the whole world." "The use of stereotypes, the passing from personal responsibility and guilt to a collective guilt remind me of the more shameful aspects of anti-Semitism," he said, quoting from the letter. The Reverend Federico Lombardi, a Vatican spokesman, later contacted The Associated Press and said Cantalamessa wasn't speaking as a Vatican official when he compared "attacks'" on the pope to "collective" violence against Jews. Such parallelism can "lead to misunderstandings and is not an official position of the Catholic church," Lombardi said, adding that Cantalamessa was speaking about a letter from a friend who lived through a "personal experience of suffering." Although the Vatican said Cantalamessa wasn't speaking as an official of the Holy See, its official daily newspaper L'Osservatore Romano ran the text of the homily in full. Marco Politi, a Vatican Correspondent for La Repubblica daily newspaper in Italy said the abuse scandal hit the Church "like an avalanche." "So now it's a very serious crisis. One German bishop has said that it will take 10 years to restore the confidence towards the Church," Politi said. Benedict didn't speak after Cantalamessa's homily, but chanted prayers in a tired voice. He leaned up to remove a red cloth covering a tall crucifix, which was passed to him by an aide. He took off his shoes, knelt and prayed before the cross. Two hours later, Benedict, wearing a red cloak in the breezy night, knelt in prayer at the Colosseum as he watched the faithful carry a tall, slim wooden cross in Rome's traditional torchlit Via Crucis procession that commemorates Christ's suffering and death. Thousands of people clutching prayerbooks and candles crowded around the ancient arena. The Vatican is facing one of its gravest crises of modern times as sex abuse scandals move ever closer to Pope Benedict XVI, threatening not only his own legacy but also that of his revered predecessor. Benedict took a much harder stance on sex abuse than John Paul II when he assumed the papacy five years ago, disciplining a senior cleric championed by the Polish pontiff and defrocking others under a new policy of zero tolerance. But the impression remains of a woefully slow-footed church and of a pope who bears responsibility for allowing paedophile priests to keep their parishes. The pope is scheduled to lead Easter Vigil Mass on Saturday night, and Easter Mass with the Urbi et Orbi blessing on Sunday.

Wide of audience applauding STORYLINE Faced with the prospect of new sanctions because of Iran's nuclear defiance, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Saturday that new penalties would only strengthen the country's technological progress by encouraging it to become more self-sufficient. In a speech, Ahmadinejad also said US steps to pressure Iran have backfired and instead have isolated Washington in the eyes of the world. "They say they have extended a hand to Iran, but the Iranian government and nation have declined to welcome that. What kind of hand did you extend towards the Iranian nation? What has changed?" the Iranian president said in remarks broadcast live on state television. US President Barack Obama said on Thursday that six world powers dealing with Iran's nuclear programme will develop a package of serious new punitive measures over its refusal to halt uranium enrichment in coming weeks. China has not confirmed US reports that it has dropped its opposition to possible new UN sanctions against Iran. China has veto power in the UN Security Council and its support would be key to passing a resolution against Iran. "We expected, and keep expecting Mr. Obama to change his diction and path. It is said that he is under pressure by the Zionists," Ahmadinejad said. Iran's economy has suffered over the past year, and parliament approved a cut in subsidies that keep fuel prices low, a further blow to Iranians already experiencing high unemployment and inflation. Iran has periodically boasted of what it says is growing self-sufficiency in technological sectors like its satellite programme and other scientific work. Seeking to demonstrate that point, Ahmadinejad's speech on Saturday was to workers at the inauguration of an industrial project at Sirjan in southern Iran.

Other three coffins, relatives shouting near the pickup truck while leaving STORYLINE : Gunmen in Iraqi military uniforms raided a village outside Baghdad and killed at least 24 people in an execution-style attack, apparently targeting a Sunni group that revolted against al-Qaida and helped turn the tide of the Iraq war, authorities said on Saturday. The attack late on Friday comes amid increasing concerns that insurgents will take advantage of Iraq's political turmoil to further destabilise the country, nearly a month after parliamentary elections failed to give any candidate a decisive win. Many fear a drawn-out political debate could spill over into violence and complicate American efforts to speed up troop withdrawals in the coming months. Some of the victims in Friday's attack suffered broken arms and legs, indicating they had been tortured before they were shot, police said. One witness said many of the victims were so badly brutalised that they were beyond recognition. Five of the dead were women. At least seven people were found alive, bound with handcuffs, authorities said. Baghdad's security spokesman said the killings about 15 miles (25 kilometres) south of Baghdad bore "an obvious al-Qaida hallmark." Police cordoned off the area and forced residents to stay inside their homes as helicopters swarmed overhead and authorities searched for suspects. By late afternoon, 25 people had been arrested, the spokesman said. Many of the dead were members of a local Sahwa, or Awakening Council - one of several names for the Sunni fighters who changed the course of the war when they revolted against al-Qaida in Iraq and joined the Americans in late 2006 and 2007, officials said. The fighters also are known as Sons of Iraq. The killings are reminiscent of those that plagued Baghdad at the height of the sectarian bloodshed of 2006 and 2007, when men, sometimes dressed in police or army uniforms, snatched people from their houses at night before killing them and dumping the bodies. Similar violence still plagues the country, although not as frequently.

Armoured vehicles driving away STORYLINE German soldiers travelling to the scene of a deadly firefight with Taliban insurgents accidentally killed six Afghan troops, the Afghan military said on Saturday. The German central command confirmed Friday's friendly fire incident, but put the number of Afghan casualties at five. The deaths occurred amid heavy fighting between German troops and militants near the northern city Kunduz. Three Germans died in the course of the fighting. "A German patrol, they became under contact, probably under a very complex attack by the insurgents, and got fixed on the ground with an improvised explosive devices, small arms fire, and RPG (rocket propelled grenade) fire," said International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) spokesman Brigadier General Eric Tremblay. Tremblay went on to say that the friendly fire incident occurred when German soldiers who were rushing from Kunduz to the scene of the fighting on Friday afternoon encountered two civilian vehicles and demanded that they stop. When they did not, a German armoured personnel carrier opened fire on them, he said. "The Afghan national army soldiers were in the Chardara district, when they were out on a logistic distribution mission. Unfortunately, when they were on their way, the PRT soldiers fired on them and six Afghan soldiers were killed," said Kunduz provincial governor, Mohammad Omar. A Kunduz provincial government spokesman said Afghan commanders were meeting on Saturday with coalition forces to discuss the incident. The Afghan Defence Ministry issued a statement condemning the incident and expressing condolences to families of the dead soldiers. An investigation is pending, ISAF said. Kunduz is one of the principal bases for the 4,300 German troops currently deployed in Afghanistan. The German parliament recently approved the deployment of 850 reinforcements. The German presence has been controversial, particularly since a German-ordered air strike last September on two tanker trucks that had been captured by the Taliban in Kunduz killed up to 142 people. Growing Taliban influence in Kunduz has threatened a key military supply line which opened last year following painstaking negotiations between neighbouring counties and the United States.

Pan from young protesters to wide of march STORYLINE Peace activists took to the streets of Munich on Saturday to call for an end to Germany's involvement in the war in Afghanistan, as it was confirmed that three German soldiers had been killed in a fire fight with insurgents. Up to six Afghanistan soldiers had also been accidentally killed by their German troops in a friendly fire incident. Friday's deaths occurred in heavy fighting between German troops and militants near the northern city of Kunduz. The German central command confirmed Friday's friendly fire incident, but put the number of Afghan casualties at five. NATO and Afghan army officials said six Afghan soldiers were killed and more were wounded. The discrepancy was not immediately explained. Reaction to the incident was a point of focus for the hundreds of peace activists in Munich taking part in an Easter peace march. Protesters, many dressed in masks, marched through Munich carrying banners against the Afghanistan war and calling for the immediate return of the German troops. "The policy of the government is responsible for these tragic events. Germany has no right to be in Afghanistan," said one protest organiser in Munich on Saturday. Germany has more than 4-thousand troops in Afghanistan as part of the NATO presence fighting the Taliban and seeking to establish central government authority. The German military said German soldiers who were rushing from Kunduz to the scene of the fighting on Friday afternoon encountered two civilian vehicles and demanded that they stop. When they did not, a German armoured personnel carrier opened fire on them, the statement said. The vehicles were later found to have been transporting Afghan troops and an investigation was pending, the military added. Shortly before, German troops had been attacked while on a bridge-building and mine-clearing mission southwest of Kunduz city, formerly a relatively calm area in the north which has lately seen a rising level of insurgent violence. A Kunduz provincial government spokesman said Afghan commanders were meeting on Saturday with coalition forces to discuss the incident. The Afghan Defence Ministry issued a statement condemning the incident and expressing condolences to families of the dead soldiers. The German presence in Afghanistan has been controversial, particularly since a German-ordered air strike last September on two tanker trucks that had been captured by the Taliban in Kunduz killed up to 142 people. Kunduz is one of the principal bases for the 4,300 German troops currently deployed in Afghanistan. The German parliament recently approved the deployment of 850 reinforcements. The Munich march was one of a series of demonstrations taking place across 70 German towns and cities over the weekend as part of the 50th anniversary of the country's Easter peace marches.

His comments come after eyewitnesses and medical workers said at least 13 people were killed in overnight fighting in Somalia's capital of Mogasdishu. "Al-Shabaab and their ally, Hisbul Islam, attacked our military positions. They gained nothing, but they suffered casualties. We have killed many of them including three of their commanders. For our part we have received no casualties and you can see we still manning our large part in which we have taken over the insurgents," Siad said. Ambulance service chief Ali Muse said he saw five dead in south Mogadishu after fighting erupted early on Saturday. He said ambulances took 25 wounded people to hospitals around Mogadishu. Two other eyewitnesses said they saw eight dead, including women and children. The latest round of fighting began on Friday and follows a lull of about two weeks. Military officials said Friday's clashes started when insurgents attacked government soldiers. Islamic insurgents control much of Mogadishu and have been trying to topple the fragile government for three years. Somalia has not had an effective government for 18 years.

We hope that the people will exercise their constitutional rights in a peaceful manner." 6. Various of military in armoured personal cars STORYLINE Sudan's incumbent president Omar al-Bashir continued his campaigning in the north-eastern city of Kassala on Saturday, as hundreds turned out to show their support, despite calls to boycott and postpone the Sudan's presidential elections scheduled to take place on 11 April. The president said he would "provide a fair and transparent election". "There will be no delay. Not postponement. No cancellation. It is the right of the people of Sudan to elect their representatives," he said. "We want this election to be complete, so that we can continue the vote regarding the fate of South Sudan, and whether we will have a united Sudan or two states. We want to have a united Sudan from Nimole (village in the south) to Halfa (village in the north)." The election has been billed as a chance to bring democracy to Sudan and start to heal a history of turmoil: 50 years of civil war between north and south which killed two (m) million people, repeated military coups, and years of violence in the western Darfur region that brought international war crimes charges against al-Bashir. Experts say the elections are likely to be deeply flawed and won't resolve the deep mistrust between the multiple sides - leaving the divisions that could once again re-ignite into violence. Many in the south are already looking forward to a more crucial vote next year: a referendum on independence for their oil-rich region. But many fear the north will do anything to prevent the referendum from being held, which could bring the two sides again to the brink of war. The mainly Christian south fought for decades against rule by the mainly Muslim north. The separate conflict in the western region of Darfur erupted in 2003, when ethnic African tribes rose up complaining of discrimination by the Arab-led government in Khartoum. The theory behind this month's local, parliamentary and presidential elections has been that they would loosen al-Bashir's autocratic control and decentralise power to address the factors which fuelled conflicts in Africa's largest nation ahead of the crucial referendum. In the capital Khartoum, thousands of police paraded in a show of force ahead of the elections. Khartoum's Chief of Police, Mohamed Al-Hafeaz Hassan, said the police will carry out its duties "professionally and impartially". "Our forces will remain loyal to the constitution and law of the land. The judiciary will monitor the election process and we will do our job professionally. We hope that the people will exercise their constitutional rights in a peaceful manner," he said Arrangements for the referendum and crucial demarcation of the north-south border around oil-rich areas are still not in place, angering southerners. Darfur remains under a state of emergency, many of its refugee community disenfranchised or intimidated by the state presence, while violence continues, bringing the legitimacy of any voting there into question. Opposition parties accuse al-Bashir's government of seeking to keep its monopoly on power despite the vote. Candidates, backed by reports from international observers and rights groups, complain al-Bashir's party has used state resources for campaigning, arrested and intimidated activists, denied them free access to the media, and co-opted the independent National Election Commission. The Umma Party and other major opposition groups threatened to boycott the vote, saying they won't participate in "incomplete" elections that would "falsify the people's will," and have demanded a delay to address the problems. Two of 11 opposition presidential candidates - including the sole southern candidate Yasser Arman - already have withdrawn from the race, while others said they were considering following suit.

It's the first museum of its kind in Poland, and the only one which has a collection of eggs from all over the world. It was established in 2004. The founders of the museum, Irena Stasiewicz-Jasiukowa and Jerzy Jasiuk, have been collecting eggs for 30 years. Antoni Mosiewicz from the museum said it was a rare collection. "It's the only museum in the world. There is no other museum which would collect Easter eggs from all over the world, from every continent, except Antarctica, and from every region in Poland," he said The collection is made up of eggs decorated with wax, paint, colour paper, bulrush, knitting wool, as well as rice and poppy seeds. Each egg is a piece of art, unique in its type and come from finch, quail, chicken, goose and ostriches. There are those which are man-made. There are wooden and iron crafted eggs in the collection. Visitors to the museum have the chance to compare different styles and techniques which decorate the eggs to create works of art. Most of the techniques are now confined to history and aren't in use today. Polish folk Easter eggs form the majority of the exhibition, but there are eggs decorated in styles from countries such as China, Kenya, Japan and Russian.

Various of people at the counter paying for their iPad STORYLINE Apple Inc. began selling its much-anticipated iPad on Saturday, drawing eager customers from as far away as Europe, intent on being among the first owners of a tablet-style device that the company is hoping to convince more people they actually need. Some of these initial iPad buyers were drawn by the ability to read electronic books, watch video and run a myriad of useful or fun applications, including Scrabble. The iPad is essentially a much larger version of Apple's popular iPhone, without the calling capabilities. The new device is a half-inch (1.25 centimetres) thick, weighs 1.5 pounds (680 grams) and has a touch screen that measures 9.7 inches (24.6 centimetres) on the diagonal - nearly three times the iPhone's. Also like the iPhone, it has no physical keyboard, but sports an accelerometer, which lets gamers tilt the device to control what's happening on the screen. For now, Apple is selling versions of the iPad that can only connect to the Internet using Wi-Fi. Those models start at 499 US dollars. Versions that also have a cellular data connection will be available by the end of the month. They will cost 130 US dollars more, with the most expensive at 829 US dollars. Although Apple is adept at generating frenetic buzz for not-yet-released products, it may have to work extra hard once the initial iPad excitement settles. Many companies have tried to sell tablet computers before, but none have caught on with mainstream consumers. Apple will need to convince people who may already have smart phones, laptops, set-top boxes and home broadband connections to buy yet another Internet-capable device with many of the same functions. And while people who pre-ordered an iPad in recent weeks gush about all the ways they hope to use it - casual Web searches on the couch, sharing photo albums with friends, reading books - sceptics point to all the ways the iPad comes up short. They argue the on-screen keyboard is hard to use and complain that it lacks a camera and ports for media storage cards and USB devices such as printers. They also bemoan the fact that the iPad can't play Flash video, which means many Web sites with embedded video clips will look broken to Web surfers using Apple's Safari browser. And the iPad can't run more than one programme at a time, which even fans hope will change one day soon.
