Wide shot, one of six Royal Caribbean boats leaving Haiti with the last remaining employees 17. Man shouting "Bye-bye" to a man on the deck of one of the boats 18. Boy on beach with the boats cruising off shore STORYLINE: Haiti''''''''s second-largest city Cap Haitien experienced a second day of looting on Tuesday after falling to rebel forces on Sunday. Rebels used the tactic of leaving the dead body of an alleged looter in the street to deter others. Later in the day, it was thought that looters had left the area Meanwhile, the last four remaining employees of the Labadie beach resort, located just west of Cap Haitien fled Haiti on Tuesday in a convoy of six boats headed for the Dominican Republic. Labadie is a private resort where Royal Caribbean cruise ships used to stop twice or three times a week. On February 17, the company cancelled the stops for two weeks because of the spreading violence and rebellions. On Tuesday a convoy of five rebel trucks full of soldiers went to Labadie to search the site. They said they were looking for Haitian National Police officers, who they though might have been hiding there. All of Cap-Haitien''''''''s police fled when the rebels entered the city on Tuesday. Other resorts are also in trouble. The 32-room Cormier Plage, just down the coast, has had very few visitors for the past six months. The resort''''''''s owner Kathy B. Dicquemare said they were closing as of today, letting 30 of their employees go with one months'''''''' pay. Labadie was a major money-earner for the Aristide government, although it is clear that little of that money was invested in the region, which has rock and mud roads and mostly wattle houses and shacks. President Aristide has urgently appealed for the world''''''''s help to avert a bloodbath and a new exodus of boat people. Aristide''''''''s impassioned appeal came hours before the Democratic Platform opposition coalition was to respond by 5 pm (2200 GMT) to the international peace plan. Despite last-ditch diplomacy, several opposition leaders indicated they were rejecting a US-backed peace plan. So far, at least 70 people have been killed in the three-week-old uprising.

But motorists are less enthusiastic, fearing the closing of the banks will result in huge traffic jams on parallel avenues.

While many Parisians are heading south for their holidays, those left behind now have the chance to enjoy a little seaside life right on their doorstep. 0018 On Sunday city authorities opened what they've called the "Paris Beach", transforming a stretch of road along the River Seine. Instead of tailbacks, there's palm trees and sun loungers. Tonnes of sand have been dumped at two spots along the road to create small beaches. 0035 The only thing missing was the sea.

People on beach STORYLINE: Europe's heatwave continued on Tuesday as the continent baked in relentless summer weather which has disrupted travel, taxed air conditioners and sent temperatures and pollution levels soaring. Despite the pollution in the French capital Paris, tourists and Parisians alike made their way to traditional landmarks - including the city's main summer attraction, the Paris Plage, or beach. City authorities created the beach in late July for the second year running by dumping three tonnes of sand on the banks of the River Seine. On a scale of 10, pollution hit level eight, while temperatures reached 40 degrees centigrade (104 degrees fahrenheit). Tourists at Montmatre, one of Paris's highest points and home to the famous Sacre Coeur basilica, said they thought the pollution was holding in the heat. Normally cool Britain also sweated as temperatures rose to 30 degrees Celsius (86 Fahrenheit) in London and Manchester. As many Britons took to the beaches to make the most of the sunshine, others had to suffer the sweltering temperatures of the London underground trains. Commuters travelling on the underground in Central London had to endure temperatures as high as 34 degrees Celcius (93.2 Fahrenheit) on Tuesday. Meanwhile, the British capital's most famous department store chose one of the hottest days of the year so far to open its Christmas decoration department. Just 130 days before the festive season begins, Harrods unveiled its 10-thousand square foot (930 square metre) Christmas World Department as temperatures soared above 30 degrees Celcius (86 Fahrenheit) in the British capital. Although temperatures in Britain were much lower than in continental Europe, where they exceeded 40 degrees Celsius (104 Fahrenheit), the government warned Britons about the health dangers, while some of the nation's cows got a good hose down. In Germany, people also continued to swelter in the heat. Tourists in the capital, Berlin, protected themselves from the torrid sun with umbrellas as they sailed in sightseeing boats on the river Spree. Animals in the Frankfurt Zoo swam and played in the pools. On Monday, Frankfurt airport reported a record night-time temperature of 23 and a half degrees Celsius (74 point three degrees Fahrenheit), surpassing the previous record of 22 degrees (71 point six degrees Fahrenheit) set in August 1982. In the Russian capital, Moscow, children and adults alike took to the cities fountains in a bid to stay cool. In Belgium, people flocked to the coastal resorts to make the most of the sea and sand and the slightly lower temperatures. Inland temperatures soared to 33 degrees Celsius (91 point four Fahrenheit), but in the coastal town of Oostende a light breeze cooled things down to about 25 degrees Celcius (77 Fahrenheit).

Image of Mas, made available by Interpol, showing him after he was arrested on a drink-driving offence AP TELEVISION - AP CLIENTS ONLY FILE: Nice - Recent 8. Various of the PIP silicone implants STORYLINE: The former head of a French company at the centre of a breast implant scandal affecting tens of thousands of women worldwide was arrested along with his former deputy on Thursday in southeast France, officials said. Jean-Claude Mas, who founded and ran the now-defunct implant maker Poly Implant Prothese, was detained as part of a judicial investigation in the southeastern city of Marseille into manslaughter and involuntary injuries, an official said. A regional official said the company's former No. 2 executive, Claude Couty, was also detained. The arrest before dawn at a family residence in the Mediterranean resort town of Six Fours Les Plages culminates weeks of speculation about whether judicial investigators would be able to assemble enough evidence to detain Mas on legal grounds. Mas, 72, had been believed to be residing in the home. So far no specific defendant has been named, but an official with knowledge of the probe said Mas was expected to face preliminary charges after appear before an investigating judge in Marseille later on Thursday. The three officials all spoke on condition of anonymity because the case is in the hands of judicial investigators. His defence lawyer Yves Haddad said Mas was "fine". "He's with the gendarmes who are doing their job," Haddad said. Investigating judge Annaick Le Goff opened the probe after a woman in the southwestern Gers region filed a lawsuit in the wake of the 2010 death from cancer of her daughter who had received a suspect implant. Since then, a complaint by the sister of Marseille resident Edwige Ligoneches, a breast implant recipient who died in November of complications from lymphoma, has since been included in the case file, along with as many as 3,000 other complaints by other alleged victims. The suspect PIP implants have been removed from the marketplace in several countries in and beyond Europe amid fears that they could rupture and leak silicone into the body. Mas had run PIP until the company was closed in March 2010. Mas is also on Interpol's most-wanted list, but the international police agency said its "red notice" was issued in June at the request of Costa Rica, where he faces a drunken driving charge.

It's a party, it's a show. It's the little things that mean you are in a free, open and public place. That is what cities are missing nowadays. That is what the mayor wants, that is why it works. I mean it is intuitive. This place is a motorway the whole year, we have turned it into a place to relax in, a place to walk around and a free place. All activities are free. That is what the city government wanted and I this is how I've answered that need." Day shots 10. Various shots of people playing petanque 11. Child playing in sand 12. SOUNDBITE (English) Michele Waters, American from San Francisco who lives in Paris: "It's wonderful for people who can't go to the beach, because it's so expensive with the traffic, this makes it perfect." 13. SOUNDBITE (French) Alain Gerard, Parisian: "It's very good, I think it's handy, it's original. Having this in Paris, in the capital, is excellent. It stops us from having to go to the beach, because it's quite far away. We avoid the traffic jams to go to Normandy or to go to Brittany, it's very good. The only thing that's missing are some platforms to go swimming." 14. Children under showers 15. Tilt down from water outlets to child 16. Mid shot person under umbrella on lounger 17. Wide shot "beach" area STORYLINE: Parisians who have to spend their summer in the city will also have a chance to stroll on the sand and relax under palm trees in lounge chairs. For the second year running, Paris is getting a beach. A three kilometre (1.9-mile) stretch of highway along the Seine River is being closed off to traffic and transformed into a sandy shore. Against the backdrop of the Eiffel Tower, people will be able to picnic, swing in hammocks, play beach volley ball, take tai chi lessons or splash in fountains - all for free. Ahead of the opening on Sunday, about 3,000 metric tons (3,100 short tons) of sand are being poured over the concrete. The project is part of Socialist Mayor Bertrand Delanoe's project to make Paris more livable, and although some Parisian drivers griped about traffic being cut off, the beach drew more than 2.3 (m) million visitors last year. This year, the project is expanding - three times as much sand will cover the quay, doubling the beach area, and there will also be more beach umbrellas and blue-white cabins. The project costs 1.5 (m) euros (1.68 million US dollars), but includes contributions of 800,000 euros (898,240 US dollars) from private sponsors. The city is keeping vending points on the river front to a minimum to keep children from nagging their parents for sweets and trinkets. However, unlike a beach, sunbathers will not be able to go for a swim - it's forbidden to swim in the murky Seine, which is crisscrossed by tourist boats and barges. The "beach" will be open until August 17.

TAPE_NUMBER: EF00/0527 IN_TIME: 07:37:41 - 09:15:34 LENGTH: 02:11 SOURCES: APTN RESTRICTIONS: FEED: VARIOUS (THE ABOVE TIME-CODE IS TIME-OF-DAY) SCRIPT: Natural Sound XFA The work of French painter Claude Monet made quite an impression on art buyers in New York on Wednesday night when one of his paintings sold for 22 (m) million U-S dollars at a Sotheby's auction. Monet, one of the most celebrated Impressionists, led the way with his 1894 painting 'Le Portail (Soleil).' His 'Nympheas' sold for a much lower price of 7.6 (m) million U-S dollars and 'Camille Assise Sur La Plage a Trouville' was a relative bargain at 2.1 (m) million U-S dollars. The collection of work assembled for the auction represented works from a wide variety of famous artists such as Picasso, Degas, Matisse and Van Gogh. Henri Matisse's 'La Serpentine - Femme a la Stele - L'Araignee,' one of the most celebrated sculptures of the 20th Century was sold for 12.75 (m) million U-S dollars. It was executed in the artist's studio in 1909 working not from a live model, but on the basis of a photograph. 'Compotier et Guitare,' Pablo Picasso's still life dating back to 1932 was bought at $9 million. SHOTLIST: New York, United States - 10 May, 2000 1. Wide shot crowd, pan across room 2.
