So the Prime Minister of Turkey was not given that opportunity. He is after all the Prime Minister of Turkey and he wants to speak." (Question: And he was in his right to walk out and make a point?) "This is a different story. He is angry and I believe we are going to see him now." 13. Cutaway delegates ++MUTE++ STORYLINE Turkey's prime minister stalked off the stage at the World Economic Forum on Thursday after reproaching Israel's president over the devastating military offensive in Gaza. The packed audience, which included President Barack Obama's close adviser Valerie Jarrett, appeared stunned as Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Israeli President Shimon Peres raised their voices and traded accusations. Peres was passionate in his defence of Israel's 23-day offensive in Gaza, which it said targeted Gaza-rulers Hamas and aimed to stop Palestinian militant rocket fire into southern Israeli towns. As he spoke, Peres often turned toward Erdogan, who in his remarks had criticised Israel's strict blockade of the Gaza Strip. "Why did they fire rockets? There was no siege against Gaza," Peres said, raising his voice. The heated debate with Israel and Turkey at the centre was significant because of the key role Turkey has played as a moderator between Israel and Syria. Erdogan appeared to express a sense of disappointment when he recounted how he had met with the Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert just days before the offensive, and believed they were close to reaching terms for a face-to-face meeting with Syrian leaders. Obama's new Mideast envoy, George Mitchell, will be in Turkey for talks on Sunday. Erdogan was angry when a panel moderator cut off his remarks in response to an impassioned monologue by Peres defending Israel's offensive. The angry exchange followed an hour-long debate at the forum attended by world leaders in Davos. Erdogan tried to rebut Peres as the discussion was ending, asking the moderator, Washington Post columnist David Ignatius, to let him speak once more. "You killed people," Erdogan told the 85-year-old Israeli leader. "I remember the children who died on beaches." When moderator repeatedly interrupted, asking him to stop, Erdogan angrily stalked off, leaving behind fellow panelists United Nations Secretary-General Ban-Ki Moon and Arab League Secretary-General, Amr Moussa.

President Bush reacts to Obama's victory in 2008 election
 
03:51
SHOTLIST 1. US President George W. Bush walks to podium 2. SOUNDBITE: (English) George W. Bush, US President: "Good morning. Last night I had a warm conversation with president-elect Barack Obama. I congratulated him and Senator Biden on their impressive victory. I told the president-elect he could count on complete cooperation from my administration as he makes the transition to the White House. I also spoke to Senator John McCain. I congratulated him on a determined campaign that he and Governor Palin ran. The American people will always be grateful for the lifetime of service John McCain has devoted to this nation, and I know he will continue to make tremendous contributions to our country. No matter how they cast their ballots, all Americans can be proud of the history that was made yesterday. Across the country citizens voted in large numbers. They showed a watching world the vitality of American democracy and the stride we have made toward a more perfect union. They chose a president whose journey represents a triumph of the American story. A testament to hard work, optimism and faith in the enduring promise of our nation. Many of our citizens thought they would never live to see that day. This moment is especially uplifting for a generation of Americans who witnessed the struggles of civil rights with their own eyes; four decades later, see a dream fulfilled. A long campaign is ended and we move forward as a nation. Embarking on a period of change in Washington, yet there are some things that will not change. The United States government will remain vigilant in meeting its most important responsibility: protecting the American people. And the world can be certain this commitment will remain steadfast under our next commander in chief. There is important work to do in the months ahead and I will continue to conduct the people's business as long as this office remains in my trust. During this time of transition I will keep the president-elect fully informed on important decisions. When the time comes on January 20 Laura and I will return home to Texas with treasured memories of our time here, with profound gratitude for the honour of serving this amazing country. It will be a stirring sight to watch President Obama, his wife, Michelle, and their beautiful girls step through the doors of the White House. I know millions of Americans will be overcome with pride at this inspiring moment that so many have waited so long. I know Senator Obama's beloved mother and grandparents would have been thrilled to watch the child they raised ascend the steps of the Capitol and take his oath to uphold the constitution of the greatest nation on the face of the earth. Last night I extended an invitation to the president-elect and Mrs Obama to come to the White House and Laura and I are looking forward to welcoming them as soon as possible. Thank you very much." 3. Bush walks away STORYLINE: US President George W. Bush fully embraced the election of Democrat Barack Obama as his successor on Wednesday, paying stirring tribute to the election of the first U.S. black president-elect and hailing the campaign of change that led Obama to victory. Bush promised Obama his "complete cooperation" during the Democrat's 76-day transition to the White House. The president said he would keep Obama informed on all his decisions between now and January 20, and said he looked forward to the day - soon, he hopes - that Obama and his family would take him up on his offer of pre-inauguration White House visit. The defeated leader of his own party, John McCain, won accolades not nearly so glowing with Bush hailing his lifetime of service to the US.

Unseen belongings of legend Marilyn Monroe unveiled ++REPLAY++
 
05:03
(11 May 2012) LEADIN Never-before-seen belongings of the Hollywood legend, Marilyn Monroe, are on display in Los Angeles. The show marks the 50th anniversary of the movie star's death at the age of 36. STORYLINE: One of the world's most iconic actresses, Marilyn Monroe, is the star of a million dollar exhibition of some of her most personal belongings. It's taking place here in Hollywood, 50 years after her premature death. Over 50,000 fans from all over the world are expected to arrive to commemorate the anniversary. This exhibit is housed inside an old bank vault, and the contents inside are valuable - maybe priceless because of their association with Monroe. The Marilyn Bank Vault Collection at Ripley's Believe It Or Not is Hollywood's ultimate homage to Marilyn, remembering an era and commemorating the queen of the town. Among the many Marilyn items are a hand knitted cardigan, currently valued at USD $170,000. She wore this on her last photo shoot. These are all personal items belonging to the owner of the Ripley's company. Andrea Silverman, general manager of Ripley's Believe It Or Not says: "We have her famous sweater which was actually the last photograph that she did before her death. You're gong to see her makeup case. It took her over three hours to do her makeup. You guys have to come see all the cool stuff that we have. We have her shoes. We have her nightgown when she was married to Joe DiMaggio for her honeymoon" Personal items include a dresser top of Marilyn's cosmetics and makeup case. She was rumoured to take three hours to put on her makeup on every morning. An old Revlon nail polish bottle sits next to an Erno Laszlo face cream, lavender smelling salts, and an Elizabeth Arden eyeshadow. This black lingerie was worn by Marilyn for baseball legend Joe DiMaggio on their wedding night. Slippers with glass and white faux fur straps were valued 10 years ago at over USD $100,000. Also on display is a USD $12,000 lace nightcap as well as a bathing suit that was quite scandalous at the time for being a midriff baring two piece, in US size 16. A polka dot dress on show is known as the willpower dress because it took sheer willpower in the 50s to wear a strapless dress. Head scarves on display were worn to shield herself from the paparazzi. Jeanne Wolf, a veteran Hollywood journalist says: "We loved and adored her and still do. There's something about her very strong. You know she came form utter poverty. She should have had absolutely no exceptions in life and rose to be well arguably the most famous movie star in the world. There was something about her, that no one looked like her. No one reminded you of her. She invented herself. She created herself and in the midst of all of that, there was something so utterly exposed and fragile about her." Her dresses on display showcase her well documented size fluctuations. Going from 37-23-34 and a US size two when she began her career to 38-23-36 in 1962 - a US size 12. A larger than life poster shows her famous dress blowing scene from the movie "The Seven Year Itch." There are 40 pairs of shoes on display, including a pair of red Salvatore Ferragamo shoes which he made just for her. There is a copy of Marilyn's footprints in cement that were given personally to Sid Grauman, the owner of the famed Grauman's Chinese Theatre. They were made in 1953 on the night of the premiere of the classic film 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes'. A lock of her hair as a child sits in a drawer for tourists to get a glimpse of. It is reported she experimented with 10 different blonde shades before deciding on her legendary platinum colour. Wolf says people will like the feeling of being inside the vault to see her things.

Japan - New discoveries in paper folding
 
02:49
T/I: 10:24:08 Anything made out of paper is generally thought to be structurally weak, but with skilful folding, paper can gain unexpected strength. The Japanese art of origami, or paper folding, has long been admired for its ingenuity, but this traditional pastime is now providing the basis for the foundation of a new technology. Two years ago, Professor Hideyuki Ohtaki, a teacher in mechanical engineering at Saitama University, and his students began conducting research into paper structures. They discovered that long triangular cylinders threaded horizontally through a collection of hexagons produced a strong structure that resisted twisting -- strong enough to hold the weight of a person. A tricycle made entirely out of recycled paper, using joints made from paper cups, was among the objects built to demonstrate the strength of their chosen material. With a fire and water resistant coating, paper could be used in unique ways giving it new options for the years ahead. SHOWS: JAPAN RECENT CU flimsy pieces of paper; Paper being folded into strong structure; Strong paper taking weight of apple; Exterior of Saitama University; Interior shot of researchers in meeting; SOT Professor Hideyuki Ohtaki: "Compared to metals, paper is extremely light-weight and easy to recycle. These advantages create various possibilities for the use of strong paper structures."

Mugabe's address to Earth Summit
 
03:37
1. Various Zimbabwean president, Robert Mugabe, walking onto stage 2. SOUNDBITE: (English) Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe: "Your excellencies we must examine why 10 years after Rio, the poor remain very much with us - poorer and far more exposed and vulnerable as ever before. Our children suffer from malnutrition and diseases, compounded by the deadly HIV-AIDS endemic. The betrayal of the collective agenda we set ourselves at Rio is a compelling manifestation of bad global governance, a lack of real political will by the north and a total absence of rule of law in international affairs." 3. Cutaway 4. SOUNDBITE: (English) Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe: "Indeed, ours is an Agrarian economy, an imperative that renders the issue of access to land paramount. In our situation, Mr. President, this fundamental question has pitted the black majority who are the right holders and therefore, primary stakeholders of our land, against an internationally well connected racial minority, largely of British descent, and brought in and sustained by British colonialism, now being supported and manipulated by the Blair government. We have said, even as we acquire our land, that we shall not deprive white farmers of land completely. Everyone of them is entitled to at least one farm - more than one farm indeed. Fifteen, twenty, thirty-five farms, one person. These are not figures I am getting out of my mind. They are real figures. So no farmer is being left without land." 5. Cutaway audience 6. SOUNDBITE: (English) Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe: "Let no one who is negative want to spoil what we are doing for ourselves, in order to unite Africa. We belong to this continent. We don't mind having and bearing sanctions banning us from Europe. We are not Europeans and we have not asked for any inch of Europe, or any spare inch of that territory. So Blair, keep your England and let me keep my Zimbabwe." 7. Cutaway audience 8. SOUNDBITE: (English) Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe: "People must always come first in sustainable development and later Africans come first in the development of Africa. Not as puppets, not as beggars but as a sovereign people. Thank-you." STORYLINE: Speaking at the Earth Summit in South Africa on Monday, Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe attacked British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, telling him to stop interfering in Zimbabwean affairs. Mugabe told gathered world leaders at the Earth Summit in Johannesburg, "Blair, keep your England and let me keep my Zimbabwe." During his speech, Mugabe also defended his government's land reforms. He said white farmers in Zimbabwe were "an internationally well connected racial minority, largely of British descent, and brought in and sustained by British colonialism, now being supported and manipulated by the Blair government." The British Prime Minister was not in the hall during Mugabe's speech.

UK: FORMER PAKISTAN CRICKET CAPTAIN IMRAN KHAN WINS COURT BATTLE
 
03:43
English/Nat One of the most bitter legal battles in the history of cricket has ended in Britain with victory for the former Pakistan cricket captain, Imran Khan. Khan was found not to have libelled former England cricket stars Ian Botham and Allan Lamb in a London High Court case that is likely to cost the plaintiffs up to half a million pounds ($750-thousand dollars) in legal costs. Botham and Lamb had accused Imran Khan of libelling them by calling them racist, low class and, in the case of Botham, a cheat. After two and a half weeks in court and a bitter legal dispute that has seen the very game of cricket on trial, the end came quickly. Imran Khan -- and his wife, Jemima -- could barely conceal their relief as they stepped out of the High Court into a barrage of press photographers. The libel suit, believed to have cost around half a million pounds in legal fees, ended in victory for Imran after a jury took four hours to throw out accusations that he libelled two of Britain's former test stars. The jury accepted Imran Khan's defence that the libel suit was hollow. His lawyer argued Ian Botham and Allan Lamb's allegations that Imran Khan had called them racists in an Indian magazine -- India Today -- were ill-founded, as Imran Khan had, he said, been misquoted. The defence lawyer also contested Botham's claim that Imran Khan described him as a cheat in an article in Britain's Sun newspaper -- saying that ball-tampering, though technically a breach of cricket rules, was an accepted practice amongst cricketers. Imran Khan -- who is now dedicating himself to a cancer hospital he set up in Pakistan and a new political group, the Justice Party -- said he was just relieved it was all over. SOUNDBITE: Could I just say something in two minutes. Basically, I'm overjoyed. I thank the Almighty that whatever I've been saying for two years, I feel vindicated that I never called anyone a racist, an underclass or a cheat and that has come true and I'm sad that it had to come to this court. SUPERCAPTION: Imran Khan, former captain of Pakistan cricket team He said the case had put great pressure on his wife Jemima, who is pregnant. SOUNDBITE: And also that this awful issue of ball tampering I hope that once and for all it is, the ICC ( International Cricket Conference) deals with it. I also am happy that the Pakistani cricketers have been vindicated because they've been called cheats throughout and I've warned the ICC to clarify the issue and I can say I'm really happy the way Jemima coped with this because it has taken a ... there was a tremendous amount of pressure on her. Thank you. (Question: What do you suppose Ian Botham felt?) I feel very sad about the whole thing. I never wanted this to happen in the first place. SUPER CAPTION: Imran Khan, former captain of Pakistan cricket team Imran and Jemima, the daughter of billionaire tycoon, Sir James Goldsmith, were pursued by press across the road and down an alley, several hundred yards to their barrister's chambers. The press crush was the sort normally reserved for the Princess of Wales -- who recently visited the Khans in their home in Lahore, Pakistan. The case has been avidly followed across the world -- as former foes on the field became foes in the court room. Ian Botham and Allan Lamb both left the High Court by a back exit. In a brief statement, Botham said he was astonished by the verdict. SOUNDBITE: No how can I regret it, you can't regret it. I fought for my dignity and my honesty and one thing I don't think anyone would ever accuse me of being is a racist and I think that my fights and stands on that have been numerous and, excuse me, and to call me a cheat or implications of being a cheat I found quite amazing.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Richard Clarke, Former White House Counter-terrorism Adviser "I also welcome the hearings because it is finally a forum where I can apologise to the loved ones of the victims of 9-11. To them who are here in the room, to those who are watching on television, your government failed you. Those entrusted with protecting you failed you, and I failed you. We tried hard, but that doesn't matter because we failed. And for that failure, I would ask, once all the facts are out, for your understanding and your forgiveness." 6. Various of hearing 7. SOUNDBITE: (English) Timothy Roemer, 9/11 Commission Member "How high a priority was fighting al-Qaida in the Bush administration?" 8. SOUNDBITE: (English) Richard Clarke, Former White House Counter-terrorism Adviser "I believe the Bush administration, in the first eight months, considered terrorism an important issue but not an urgent issue." 9. Wide shots of hearing 10. SOUNDBITE: (English) John Lehman, 9/11 Commission Member "The inconsistency between what your promoters are putting out and what you said as late as August 05, you've got a real credibility problem. And because of my real genuine, long-term admiration for you, I hope you resolve that credibility problem, because I hate to see you become totally shoved to one side during a presidential campaign as an active partisan selling a book." 11. SOUNDBITE: (English) Richard Clarke, Former White House Counter-terrorism Adviser "I've been accused of being a member of John Kerry's campaign team several times this week, including by the White House. The White House has said that my book is an audition for a high level position in the Kerry campaign. So let me say here as I am under oath, that I will not accept any position in the Kerry administration should there be one, on the record, under oath." 12. Mid shot of hearing 13. SOUNDBITE: (English) Richard Clarke, Former White House Counter-terrorism Adviser "In the 15 hours of testimony, no one asked me what I thought about the president's invasion of Iraq. And the reason I am strident in my criticism of the president of the United States is because by invading Iraq - something I was not asked about by the commission, something I chose to write a lot about in the book - by invading Iraq, the president of the United States has greatly undermined the war on terrorism." 14. Wide pan of hearing STORYLINE: The US government's former top counterterrorism adviser apologised to the families of September 11 victims on Wednesday, saying "your government failed you." Richard Clarke made the comments just before testifying before a bipartisan commission investigating the September 11, 2001, attacks. It was the second day of hearings with Bush and Clinton administration officials as the commission tried to determine what went wrong in the efforts to stop al-Qaida before the 9/11 attacks. Clarke, who has received much attention in recent days for the release of his book, which is highly critical of the Bush administration for its response to al-Qaida, delivered a sharp attack against President Bush and his top advisers. He said although he continued to describe terrorism as an urgent problem, the Bush administration never treated it that way. In comparison, Clarke said the Clinton administration had "no higher priority" than combating terror. Clarke said he was so frustrated by the Bush team's lack of urgency that he asked to be reassigned.

WRAP Prince William and Kate Middleton announce engagement ADDS more
 
05:23
(16 Nov 2010) Prince William has finally became engaged to long-time girlfriend Kate Middleton, giving her his late mother's engagement ring and Britain the prospect of its biggest royal wedding since Prince Charles married Lady Diana Spencer almost 30 years ago. Royal officials announced on Tuesday that William will marry Middleton next spring or summer in London, ending years of rumoured splits, reconciliations and will-they, won't-they speculation. The college romance that seemed to wilt under the pressure of adulthood and the glare of the paparazzi had blossomed at last. "This was my way of making sure that my mother didn't miss out on today," William said as the couple posed for photographers inside St. James's Palace. William proposed during a holiday in Kenya last month and gave Kate the oval blue sapphire surrounded by diamonds, from the jeweller Garrard, that his mother, Princess Diana, once wore. William is second in line to the British throne after Charles, his father. Kate and William's first child would move ahead of his younger brother Prince Harry to become third in line to the throne. "Blimey," said William as he faced a torrent of camera flashes Tuesday at St. James's Palace. He wore a navy suit, Kate a simple blue dress. Kate acknowledged that being queen was "a daunting prospect" and declined to say whether the prince had gone down on bended knee when he proposed. Many in Britain welcomed the royal engagement as a rare piece of good news in a time of economic uncertainty and cutbacks - a time much like 1981, when millions watched Charles and Diana's fairy-tale wedding. Their marriage eventually ended in divorce - but no one was dwelling on that detail on Tuesday. William's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and her husband Prince Philip "are absolutely delighted for them both," Buckingham Palace said. Prince Charles said he was "obviously thrilled," and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, said her stepson's engagement was "the most brilliant news." Middleton's parents, Carole and Michael, also welcomed the prince to their family. "We all think he's wonderful, we're extremely fond of him," Michael Middleton said. "They make a lovely couple." Using Twitter as well as a news release, Clarence House said Charles was "delighted to announce the engagement of Prince William to Miss Catherine Middleton." Few were surprised by the news. Kate and William's engagement was the safest bet in Britain, an event so certain that bookies had stopped taking bets on a 2011 wedding. The date avoids London's Summer Olympics and the queen's Diamond Jubilee, both being held in 2012. No venue has been announced yet. For true pomp, the ceremony is likely to fall between the extraordinary spectacle of Charles and Diana's wedding in St. Paul's Cathedral and Charles' subdued second marriage to Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall at Windsor Guildhall in 2005. The formal engagement is likely to turn the poised, brunette Middleton - already depicted approvingly in the fashion pages - into a global icon. With her confident good looks and long brown hair, Middleton has already become one of the most photographed women in Britain. The palace will be hoping that she combines Diana's glamour and charm with a more commonsense approach to life. At 28, Middleton is considerably older than Diana was when she wed at 20, and has had greater life experiences and longer training in dealing with the media. William and Harry have spent a lifetime in the spotlight, with their drunken nights out and female friends the subject of constant tabloid gossip. William once told an interviewer he wouldn't marry "until I'm at least 28 or maybe 30." He turned 28 in June, Middleton met William at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland.

Various photo opportunities of Israeli Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom and Erdogan STORYLINE Guarded by scores of Israeli and Palestinian security officials, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday visited the Al Aqsa Mosque, Islam's third-holiest site and one of the most politically sensitive areas in the region. Erdogan, in the region on a two-day visit, is meeting Palestinian leaders on Monday. He held talks with Israeli leaders on Sunday in an effort to repair strained relations with the Jewish state. In a sign of closer ties, Israel and Turkey said they would set up a hot line for instant communications on terror threats. On Monday morning, Erdogan, whose party has its roots in Turkey's Islamic movement, arrived at the disputed site in the Old City known as the Temple Mount to Jews and the Noble Sanctuary to Muslims. The site, which once held the biblical Jewish Temples and now holds Al Aqsa, is claimed by both Jews and Muslims. Erdogan was surrounded by dozens of Israeli security guards when he arrived at the compound. In his trip here, Erdogan, only the second Turkish prime minister to visit Israel, said he hoped to offer himself as a mediator in the conflict between the Palestinians and Israel.

PHILIPPINES: IMELDA MARCOS SENATE HEARING
 
02:47
Tagalog/Eng/Nat Philippine senators have grilled the widow of dictator Ferdinand Marcos on her claims that her husband owned much of the Philippines, In a hearing broadcast on nationwide television, she dodged most of the questions, invoking privilege. The government has put claims on about 570 (m) million U-S dollars in Swiss deposits, now held in an account in a Philippine bank. The Swiss accounts are also being claimed by nine thousand five hundred Filipinos who won a class action suit for human rights violations against the Marcos estate and were awarded 2 (b) billion U-S dollars in damages. Draped in pearls and gold jewellery, the sixty-nine year-old who became famous for her massive shoe collection said her husband was not a thief instead that he had amassed his fortune through gold trading. The senate hearing was broadcast live by a cable television company, allowing many Filipinos to see for the first time Mrs. Marcos being questioned about her family's wealth. Marcos and her lawyers are reportedly planning to sue to recover at least 500 billion pesos (12.65 (b) billion U-S dollars) in equity in more than 100 top Philippine corporations allegedly entrusted by Marcos to his associates, who now refuse to return them to Marcos' heirs. In the hearing, Marcos said she agreed to appear in the senate to seek the lawmakers' help in recovering her husband's assets. She suggested the late president had wanted these turned over to the government for the benefit of all Filipinos. SOUNDBITE: (English) "But the most urgent reason I was looking forward to coming to this hearing of the Philippines Senate is to seek your help, honourable Senators, to help me implement the last will and testament of the late President Marcos, to enlist assets in the hands of trustees, to implement the Marcos Humanitarian Foundation, so that we can help the country in our economic crisis and help the Filipino people in their agony and suffering" SUPER CAPTION: Imelda Marcos, former First Lady of the Philippines One of the country's leading newspapers early this month ran a series of articles in which Marcos was quoted as having said her family owns much of the Philippines. Senator Aquilino Pimentel, a former southern Philippine city mayor jailed by Marcos, asked whether it was true that she had given the interview. She denied giving interviews and refused to identify the corporations and assets or the trustees used by her husband as fronts. Senator Pimentel said that among the names she mentioned in the interview was the name of Lucie Otan. But Imelda Marcos remained tight lipped. SOUNDBITE: "Again I would like to revoke my right to remain silent" Question: We are only interested what is the first name of this David that you mentioned? "I think I better obey the orders of my council to invoke my right to remain silent, because of the many cases that I have in Sandigen Buyen (unclear) and elsewhere. Question: What about Eduardo Cuanco? The same right, your honour" SUPER CAPTION: Imelda Marcos, former First lady of the Philippines Marcos was ousted in a popular revolt in 1986 and died in exile in Hawaii three years later. He had denied any wrongdoing. The government has accused the Marcoses of illegally enriching themselves during his 20-year rule. Marcos said she was aware of her husband's huge wealth. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I knew that he was pretty rich. That was why I was telling him why are you in politics with all this wealth that you have. Early on - almost on day one - I knew he had more money than people thought...than I expected he had" SUPER CAPTION: Imelda Marcos, former First lady of the Philippines You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/f03e11a59bad32b4f73d9d6c0604c405 Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork

Nepal: Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Visit - 1995
 
02:30
U-S First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton is taking her campaign for women and children's rights to yet another South Asian nation: Nepal. This is her third stop on a 12 day tour of the region. Her daughter, Chelsea, is with her in Kathmandu where they called on the King and Queen of Nepal and the country's prime minister. They rolled out the red carpet for the U-S first lady. On hand to greet her was Nepal's Queen Aishwarya Shah. Princess Sruti is seen here being introduced to Chelsea, the Clinton's daughter. Mrs. Clinton and her daughter visited this exhibit of crafts made by poor women who are being helped to turn traditional skills into a source of income. She seemed delighted with this hand woven shawl. In fact, she wore it- or one much like it- to this official function later in the day. This is a country where most women have a tough life and few options. The literacy rate for women is 18 per cent- it's 52 per cent for men. Women have a life expectancy of only 52 years and give birth to an average of five children. But most have more then five pregnancies because their babies don't survive. Ten out of every 100 babies die in infancy. The first lady made it a point to visit women from all walks of life. She "did lunch" with prominent Nepali women and visited a heath care centre run by American women in Kathmandu. Her visit also included an audience with Nepal's communist prime minister, Man Mohan Adhikari, and with King Birenda, who four years ago yielded to a pro-democracy movement and accepted a constitutional monarchy. Nepal is the only official Hindu state in world. About 90 per cent of the population are Hindu. Buddhists and Muslims comprise less than 10 per cent. Nepal's 20 million population is expected to double by the year 2025. On Saturday, Mrs. Clinton and Chelsea take a day off their official schedule to relax at an isolated Nepali wildlife retreat. They travel to Bangladesh on Sunday.

CUBA: RUSSIAN PRESIDENT PUTIN VISIT
 
02:29
Natural Sound The first visit to Cuba by a Russian President since the collapse of the Soviet Union entered its first full day on Thursday in Havana with a schedule of talks and official ceremony. Putin arrived in Havana late on Wednesday for a two-day state visit aimed at reviving historic ties between the two former Cold War allies. On Thursday, he joined President Fidel Castro in saluting the Cuban flag in Revolution Palace. Putin, in a dark suit and tie, and Castro, in his customary olive green uniform and cap, then stood to attention as a Cuban military band played the national anthems of both countries outside the Palace of the Revolution. Both leaders then paused for an official photo. The two presidents appeared to be chatting amiably through an interpreter. After greeting a Russian delegation and members of Cuba's top leadership, the two presidents held formal talks inside the palace and signed a series of accords. Six documents were prepared for the trip, including agreements on cooperation in legal affairs and health. Apparently not wanting to interrupt Putin's visit with a public statement on the new American president, Castro's government made no immediate comment on George W. Bush's victory late Wednesday night. But a press conference was scheduled after the two leaders signed documents of cooperation, and questions are expected to be put to Putin. Castro has long said he didn't expect any changes under Bush or Vice President Al Gore, but the vice president was largely seen as the lesser of two evils.

POLAND: KRAKOW: POPE JOHN PAUL II VISITS PARENTS' GRAVE
 
03:07
Natural Sound As his tour of his homeland draws to a close, Pope John Paul the Second has visited the tomb of his parents in Krakow. The pontiff also said Mass at the church where he gave his first service as a priest. And later in the day he visited a new heart surgery clinic that has been named after him. In what many believe will be his last visit to Poland, Pope John Paul the Second visited his parent's grave in Krakow on Monday. There is no mention of the pope, but people visit the tomb to pay their respects to his family, even when the pontiff is not in town. A choir sang as the 77-year-old kneeled before the tombstone and prayed. The simple, granite gravestone is engraved with the names of his mother, father and brother. Just 10 metres (25 feet) away are the graves of Red Army soldiers and a monument dedicated to their heroism in World War Two. The pope lit a candle in front of the tomb. Sprays of roses in the Polish and Vatican colours - red and white and yellow and white - decorated the modest tomb. The pope began the day with a private Mass in a chapel at Wawel Royal Cathedral, where he held his first service as a priest in 1946. Later in the day, he opened a new heart surgery clinic, that has been named after him. The pontiff met with recent transplant patients and told them he understood what they were going through first hand. The ageing pope has gone through a series of operations in recent years, including a hip replacement and removal of what the Vatican says was a benign colon tumour. Many Poles fear this could be the last visit for John Paul. But church officials suggested he may return next year, when he has been invited for the one-thousandth anniversary of the city of Gdansk on the Baltic coast. The pope returns to Rome on Tuesday after spending 11 days in his homeland.

USA: PAKISTAN'S BENAZIR BHUTTO MEETS PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON
 
02:08
English/Nat Pakistan's Prime Minister, Benazir Bhutto, met with U-S President Bill Clinton today (Tuesday) to deliver a clear message: my planes or my money. Benazir Bhutto wants the Clinton administration to either unfreeze the delivery of 28 F- 16 fighter jets or return the one-point-four (b) billion dollars paid for them. Clinton promised to urge Congress to reimburse Pakistan. But he is limited by a 1990 law which freezes U-S military supplies and economic aid to Pakistan due to concerns that it was developing nuclear weapons. Bhutto told Clinton that Pakistan had no nuclear weapons, although she claimed it had the knowledge to build them. President Clinton's administration inherited the uncomfortable situation of Pakistan's payment of one-point-four billion U-S dollars for fighter jets it never received. The 28 F-16 fighter jets were manufactured and paid for, but never delivered. The deal is being held up by a 1990 U-S law freezing economic aid and military supplies for Pakistan over concern that it is acquiring nuclear weapons. Bhutto said Pakistan had the knowledge to develop atomic weapons, but had decided against assembling, exporting or detonating nuclear devices. The measure is known as the Pressler amendment, after its sponsor, Senator Larry Pressler of South Dakota. Following their meeting, President Clinton says the situation is unfair and must be addressed. SOUNDBITE: "I don't think what happened was fair to Pakistan, in terms of the money. Now under the law, we can't give up the equipment, the law is clear. So I intend to consult with Congress on that to see what we can do." SUPER CAPTION: US President Bill Clinton Bhutto felt progress was being made on the five year old dispute. SOUNDBITE: "I'm encouraged by my discussions with the president this morning and with the concern he has shown for Pakistan. I welcome the Clinton administration's decision to work with Congress to revise the Pressler amendment." SUPER CAPTION: Pakistan PM Benazir Bhutto The two leaders also discussed the 48-year-old conflict between Pakistan and India over control of the disputed Kashmir territory on their borders.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Lloyd Blankfein, Goldman Sachs CEO: "The people who were coming to us for risk in the housing market wanted to have a security that gave them exposure to the housing market, and that''s what they got. The unfortunate thing, and it''s unfortunate but it doesn''t, is that the housing market went south very quickly after some of these securities, not all of them because some of them were done early, but they went. And so people lost money in it, but the security itself delivered the specific exposure that the client wanted to have." 4. SOUNDBITE: (English) Senator Carl Levin, Subcommittee Chairman of Homeland Security Committee: "You don''t believe it''s relevant to a customer of yours that you are selling a security to that you are betting against that same security. You just don''t think it''s relevant and needs to be disclosed. Is that the bottom line?" 5. SOUNDBITE: (English) Lloyd Blankfein, Goldman Sachs CEO: "Yes, and the people who are selling it in our firm wouldn''t even know what the firm''s position is." 6. Blankfein sitting before Senate panel 7.

If you came to me and wanted to sell me securities and you didn''t tell me that you have a bet against that same security, you don''t think that affects my thinking?" 8.

They are instruments that are created so that people can bet on them. It''s the la-la-land of ledger entries. It''s not investment in a business that has a good idea. It''s not assisting local governments and building infrastructure. It''s gambling, pure and simple, raw gambling." 10. Witnesses seated at table 11. SOUNDBITE: (English) Michael Swenson, Managing Director, Structured Products Group Trading, Goldman Sachs: "We did not cause the financial crisis, specifically to the mortgage desk, which is what I''m here to speak about.

Mid shot of clerk taking notes STORYLINE: Defending his company under blistering criticism, the CEO of Goldman Sachs testily told sceptical US senators on Tuesday that customers who bought securities from the Wall Street giant in the run-up to a national financial crisis came looking for risk. Lloyd Blankfein and other Goldman executives were lambasted by lawmakers for "unbridled greed" in an often-electric daylong showdown between Wall Street and Congress - with expletives frequently undeleted. Unrepentant, five present and two past Goldman officials unflinchingly stood by their conduct before a Senate investigatory panel and denied helping to cause the financial near-meltdown that turned into the worst recession since the Great Depression. "Unfortunately, the housing market went south very quickly," Blankfein told sceptical senators. "So people lost money in it."

UK: PRESIDENT MANDELA'S ROYAL WELCOME TO BRITAIN
 
04:01
(9 Jul 1996) English/Nat Britain is giving the red carpet treatment to Nelson Mandela, the man who smashed apartheid in South Africa. In Britain, on a four-day state visit, the South African President is being hailed as a hero. It's the first state visit to the country by a South African president. President Nelson Mandela's state visit to Britain began according to tradition. Met by the Princess Royal at London's exclusive Dorchester Hotel, the hero of apartheid was whisked off to Horse Guards Parade to inspect a guard of honour. At 12.40 pm local time, a Royal gun salute boomed across the capital as the President's limousine glided into the parade ground. The formal welcoming party, headed by the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, Prime Minister John Major and several top ministers, bore all the traditional pomp and ceremony befitting a visiting head of state. But the South African leader received a rather less formal welcome from the crowd. More than six-thousand people had gathered at the square - the largest turnout for a head of state's welcome since the birth of television. Chanting 'Nelson', 'Nelson', they waved South African flags and craned their necks for a view of the man who was once known as the Black Pimpernel. Britain's Queen Elizabeth appeared pleased to meet Mandela. She made a highly successful visit to South Africa last year, and clearly enjoys Mandela's company. The band of the Irish Guards played the South African national anthem, incorporating the last few bars of the old Afrikaans anthem, signifying the transition from old to new. On Horse Guards Parade, President Mandela, wearing a smart, dark business suit, inspected the honour guard. His walk was stiff, but he appeared as dignified as ever. Then he and daughter Zenani joined their royal escort to parade down The Mall in open carriages to Buckingham Palace. Later in the day, the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh gave a state dinner in Mandela's honour. The Queen Mother paid tribute to the South African President by attending her first Buckingham Palace state banquet in almost three years. The 95-year-old Queen Mother sat on Mandela's right. The Queen was on his left. The Prince of Wales, Duke of York, Princess Royal, and Princess Margaret were also present. As were Prime Minister John Major and senior cabinet ministers. In all, around 200 guests were assembled in the sumptuous Palace Ballroom. In her formal welcome to the guest of honour, Queen Elizabeth II stressed the close ties between Britain and South Africa. SOUNDBITE: Mr President, South Africa has a special place in my heart and in the hearts of the British people. Our two counties are bound together by history, by common interest and by ideals and aspirations. SUPER CAPTION: Queen Elizabeth II The Queen and Mandela then touched glasses in a toast to an even tighter bond between their two nations in the future.

My understanding is that the U.S., even though they may not be able to vote for the Council as it is now currently proposed, will be able to work with the Council, and so I do expect the Council to be established today. I am particularly happy about it because I think it's qualitatively better than the Commission. The President of the General Assembly has done great work working with all the member states to come up with a document that gives us a credible basis to move forward.

School children singing STORYLINE: United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan is sure a UN human rights council would be able to work with the United States, even if the US was to vote against it being established, he said on Wednesday. Annan spoke after meeting former South African president Nelson Mandela at the Nelson Mandela Foundation in Johannesburg. Annan said he was optimistic that member states would approve the creation of a new UN Human Rights Council despite vows by the United States to vote against the new body. US Ambassador John Bolton had rejected any compromise that did not reopen negotiations on the council and reiterated that the United States would vote against a resolution to create it on a Wednesday ballot in the General Assembly. A vote was considered likely despite Assembly president Jan Eliasson's repeated calls for the new council to be approved by consensus of the 191 member states. Annan said, "in a normal democratic process, if you can get unanimity, well and good. But if you can't, and an overwhelming majority of the members go for something, I think it should work." "My understanding is that the US, even though they may not be able to vote for the council as it is now currently proposed, it will be able to work with the council," Annan said. Annan noted that the US had done "so much" for human rights in the past. The 191-member UN General Assembly has been unable to agree on a replacement for the current UN Human Rights Commission, criticised for including among its 53 members notorious human rights abusers such as China, Cuba, Sudan and Zimbabwe, the AFP news agency reported on Wednesday. Annan is in the final year of a decade at the helm of the United Nations. Mandela commended Annan for his ability to identify with different types of people. "Kofi introduced a new approach of respecting everybody whether he is black or white, and trying to serve them. That is the type of Secretary General of the United Nations that we want." After meeting Mandela, the UN Secretary General visited Soweto and laid a wreath at the Hector Peterson memorial, to remember the first victim of the Soweto uprising of 1976.

That's a big part...that's what we do to each other all the time.

It was how he felt about his mother, the love that he felt to his mother, his relationship to women, his work ethic. We worked together in a firm. He did his work, he was good and he was smart and I liked that. He was low key and wasn't impressed with himself and he was funny and we joked a lot and he loved his little sister...those were the things. And he was a community organiser. I really respected that. Here we are in a big law firm, right, and everybody was pushing to make money, he was one of the smartest students at Harvard Law School, one of the smartest associates in our firm.

IAN SMITH TALKS ABOUT PRESIDENT ROBERT MUGABE
 
02:31
English/Nat XFA With the opposition trying to impeach him and his popularity at an all-time low, President Robert Mugabe has lashed out at Zimbabwe's white minority, threatening genocide trials for all who fought against him in the independence war. Mugabe told supporters on Wednesday that Ian Smith, the white leader he helped overthrow two decades ago, and all whites who fought against black guerrillas would face trials for war crimes. Speaking as he arrived for a debate in Oxford on Thursday, Ian Smith responded to these latest threats, saying Mugabe's actions belonged to a man clinging onto the last vestiges of power. He challenged Mugabe to set up a truth and reconciliation committee, saying that he had nothing to fear. Arriving at Oxford Union Thursday night, the former white leader of the former British colony of Rhodesia, Ian Smith laughed off President Mugabe's latest threat to put him on the stand. Mugabe is calling for all whites who fought against black guerrillas to face trials for war crimes. Mugabe has said the nation's 70,000 whites - less than 1 percent of the population of 13 million - mostly opposed his government and had spurned offers of forgiveness and reconciliation. Smith rejected Mugabe threat, saying that the blame for the violence lay squarely on Mugabe's shoulders. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Well he is the one who should be put on trial for genocide isn't he, Mugabe -- not Smith." SUPER CAPTION: Ian Smith, former Rhodesian Prime Minister SOUNDBITE: (English) "Well because he killed so many people, massacred them by the thousands, I mean Gurugundi and Matabeleland land, when he massacred 30,000 Matabeleles, I never remember massacring a single person in my life." SUPERCAPTION: Ian Smith, former Rhodesian Prime Minister Smith said Mugabe's belligerent style of government had forced him into a corner - one which had made him desperate and dangerous. SOUNDBITE: (English) "He is in a state of panic, he doesn't know whether he is coming or going, he is like a wounded animal in a corner, dangerous and unpredictable. So I don't know what to say or what to think, it is difficult." SUPERCAPTION: Ian Smith, former Rhodesian Prime Minister When asked if he feared a trial, Smith openly challenged Mugabe to carry out his threats, saying he had nothing to fear. SOUNDBITE: (English) "No I would love it, let's get the truth, when your conscience is clear you have got no problem, have you?" SUPERCAPTION: Ian Smith, former Rhodesian Prime Minister However, when questioned if he felt any responsibility for the current state of the economy in Zimbabwe, Smith said the blacks had actually benefitted under British rule. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Certainly not, the black community will tell you they lived better under Smith than under Mugabe, they were brain washed by a communist propaganda machine into believing that things were going to improve, sadly they were taken for a ride." SUPERCAPTION: Ian Smith, former Rhodesian Prime Minister He said that the only way to establish the truth of Mugabe's accusations was to follow in the footsteps of South Africa's truth and reconciliation commission. SOUNDBITE: (English) I've challenged Mugabe to set up a commission of truth and reconciliation similar to the one they had in South Africa. My word I think that would frighten him if he had to face up to that thing, I would welcome it." SUPERCAPTION: Ian Smith, former Rhodesian Prime Minister Mugabe's threats come the same day a poll was released showing that 75 percent of Zimbabweans want Mugabe to resign and 51 percent want him prosecuted for human rights abuses.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Barack Obama, U.S. President: "Our guys, the Americans, couldn't figure out why your guys were always talking about cheese. All day long. Morning, noon and night. 'Why are the Aussies always talking about cheese?' and then finally, they realised it was their Australian friends just saying hello. Just saying 'Cheers.' So, we Americans and Australians, we may not always speak the same way or use the same words, but I think it's pretty clear, especially from the spirit of this visit and our time together this evening, that we understand each other." 4. Wide of Obama speaking 5. SOUNDBITE: (English) Barack Obama, U.S. President: ++part of soundbite is overlaid with wide of Obama speaking, applause, close up of Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard++ "I know there's some concern here that your Australian language is being Americanised. So, perhaps it's time for us to reverse the trend. Tonight, with your permission, I'd like to give it a "burl" (I'd like to give it a try). I want to thank the prime minister for a very productive meeting that we had today. I think she'll agree that it was a real 'chinwag' (discussion/gossip). When Julia and I meet, we listen to each other, we learn from each other. It's not just a lot of 'earbashing', that's a good one, 'earbashing', I can use that in Washington, because there's a lot of 'earbashing' sometimes." 6. Wide of Obama speaking 7. SOUNDBITE: (English) Barack Obama, U.S. President: ++part of soundbite is overlaid with wide of audience, applause++ "It's that moment, in the midst of battle, when the bullets are flying and the outcome is uncertain, when Americans and Aussies look over at each other, knowing that we've got each other's backs, knowing in our hearts: 'no worries, she'll be right" (all will be ok). And so tonight, as we mark 60 years of this remarkable alliance through war and peace, hardship and prosperity, we gather together amongst so many friends who sustained the bonds between us and we can say with confidence and with pride, the alliance between the United States and Australia is deeper and stronger, than it's ever been, 'spot on' (exactly), 'crackerjack" (the best), 'in top nick' (perfect condition). Thank you very much everybody." 8. Wide of Obama walking back to table STORYLINE: US President Barack Obama endeared himself to the Australians in a Wednesday night dinner speech calling them "Aussies" and trying his hand at some local slang. "We can say with confidence and with pride, the alliance between the United States and Australia is deeper and stronger, than it's ever been, 'spot on' (exactly), 'crackerjack" (the best), 'in top nick' (perfect condition)," he said. Obama, who has announced a new security agreement with Australia that is widely viewed as a response to Beijing's growing aggressiveness, is on the second stop on a nine-day tour of the Asia-Pacific region. The agreement will expand the U.S. military presence in Australia, positioning more U.S. personnel and equipment there, and increasing American access to bases. About 250 U.S. Marines will begin a rotation in northern Australia starting next year, with a full force of 2,500 military personnel staffing up over the next several years. The U.S. and smaller Asian nations have grown increasingly concerned about China claiming dominion over vast areas of the Pacific that the U.S. considers international waters, and reigniting old territorial disputes, including confrontations over the South China Sea.

I would say we are very, very happy if we can have some 99 percent (of the) crew that's smiling every time we go past through the serving line. Other than that we have one or two there that have small issues about the food." 7. Various of serving line 8. SOUNDBITE (English) Vox pop, Sailor "It is not the greatest but it is not the worst either." 9. SOUNDBITE (English) Vox pop, Sailor "Its all right. They do the best they can. For feeding 5,000 people they do what they have to do. Yeh, mess is all right." 10. Various of people eating in the mess STORYLINE: It's always said that an army marches on its stomach and, of course, that's also how the navy sails. On the huge aircraft carrier the U-S-S Carl Vinson, feeding 5-thousand sailors is a daily challenge. The challenge for the catering crew is to provide plenty of quantity and variety, even if the ship is at sea for weeks on end. The USS Carl Vinson, which is launching bombing raids on Afghanistan from the northern Arabian Sea, has seven galleys ranging from the exclusive admiral's mess to the two huge eating areas for the enlisted men and women. You name it, they've probably got it: from machines dispensing root beer and pink lemonade all the way to an expensive cappuccino maker. The 140 cooks on board will fry up a hamburger, veggie burger or a grilled cheese sandwich. Then there are taco bars, salad bars, a pasta bar, bagels, and hot dogs. Many items are available round the clock. The crew gets four meals a day: breakfast, lunch, dinner and a late-night offering called "mid rats." That's short for 'midnight rations' and has nothing to do with the ingredients. The immense freezer can hold 120 truckloads of food. Its supplies include boxes of lobster tail and steak for a special dinner to celebrate the Navy's birthday, 226 years ago. The specialist mess chef, Moises, whose full name cannot be used under military ground rules, says all but a few seem happy with the results.

Bush, US President: "Laura and I join people across the earth in mourning the passing of Pope John Paul II. The Catholic church has lost its shepherd, the world has lost a champion of human freedom and a good and faithful servant of god has been called home. Pope John Paul II left the throne of Saint Peter in the same way he ascended to it: as a witness to the dignity of human life." 3. SOUNDBITE:(English) George W. Bush, US President: " Pope John Paul II was himself an inspiration to millions of Americans and to so many more throughout the world. We will always remember the humble, wise, and fearless priest who became one of history's great moral leaders. We are grateful to god for sending such a man, a son of Poland,who became the bishop of Rome and a hero for the ages." 4. Laura and George W. Bush walk away 5.

SOUNDBITE:(English), Theodore McCarrick, Archbishop of Washington "Your presence here is because you know how important it is to the world that this extraordinary man has gone back to god and we thank the Lord for his presence." 13. Cutaway of media STORYLINE: President Bush led the United States in mourning Pope John Paul II on Saturday, saying the Pontiff's quarter century as head of the Roman Catholic Church and his lifetime of dedication to freedom and values made him a "hero for the ages." "The Catholic Church has lost its shepherd. The world has lost a champion of human freedom," the president said in a brief televised statement from the White House. Both he and first lady Laura Bush, who stood at his side, wore black suits and sombre expressions. "A good and faithful servant has been called home," the president said. Shortly after his remarks at the White House, the president went by motorcade to St. Matthew's Cathedral in Washington for a memorial mass. Bush was expected to travel to Rome for the funeral, but the White House held off making an official announcement of the delegation it would send out of respect for protocol. A White House press secretary said Bush aides expected to hear about funeral arrangements from the Vatican on Sunday and said it would be inappropriate to discuss the president's plans before then. The president immediately ordered that US flags on all federal government buildings be flown at half-mast until the pope is buried. Bush articulated the grief felt by the nation's 67 (m) million Catholics as well as the many outside the faith who revered the man for his long service to the church and the poor. "We will always remember the humble, wise and fearless priest who became one of history's great moral leaders," he said. "We're grateful to God for sending such a man, a son of Poland who became the Bishop of Rome and hero for the ages," the president said. Meanwhile in Washington's Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, officials lowered a drape and rang church bells for Pope John Paul II. A wreath and drapes were also placed at Washington's Saint Matthew's Cathedral, where Archbishop Theodore McCarrick was expected to say the memorial mass. McCarrick also made a brief statement to the press.

PORTUGAL: POPE JOHN PAUL II VISIT
 
02:01
Part mute XFA More than half a (m) million pilgrims gathered in the Portuguese town of Fatima to attend the pope's beatification of a shepherd boy and girl whom he credits with a miracle that saved his life in a 1981 assassination attempt. The crowds watched the pope beatify Jacinta Marto and her brother Francisco, who said the Virgin Mary appeared to them and their cousin Lucia dos Santos above an olive tree six times in 1917 and told them three secrets. Dos Santos, who is now 93 and the only one of the three still alive, met the pope in Fatima on Saturday. Pope John Paul the Second weaved through the cheering throng in Fatima for 40 minutes in his popemobile before the beatification. The pope is said to have a special fondness for Fatima since 1981, when he was wounded in an assassination attempt in St. Peter's Square. The shooting happened on May 13, the anniversary of the first apparition of the Virgin in Fatima, 110 kilometres (70 miles) north of Lisbon. One of the two bullets that hit the pope is placed in a statue of the Virgin Mary at Fatima - a town of 8-thousand people. When he came to Fatima on May 12 the following year to thank the Virgin, he survived another assassination attempt by a fundamentalist Spanish priest who lunged at him with a bayonet, accusing him of betraying the Church. On Saturday, the crowds watched the pope beatify Jacinta Marto and her brother Francisco, who said the Virgin Mary appeared to them and their cousin Lucia dos Santos above an olive tree six times in 1917 and told them three secrets. Many pilgrims hoped the pope would reveal the last of three secrets the shepherd children said the Virgin told them. The first two foretold the end of World War I and the rise and fall of Communism. Dos Santos, who is now 93, has told the third secret to the Vatican but successive popes have refused to disclose it. She sat in silent prayer beside the tombs of her cousins before joining the beatification ceremony in Fatima's neo-Baroque basilica and meeting the pope. The beatified shepherd children died of pneumonia two years after the visions, at the ages of 9 and 11. The pope's visit to Fatima was expected to be his last foreign trip this year amid a heavy agenda of 2000 Holy Year commitments.

USA: NOBEL PRIZE FOR CHEMISTRY AWARDED TO SCIENTIST ZEWAIL
 
02:36
Los Angeles, USA, 12 October 1999 The Nobel Prize for Chemistry has been awarded to an Egyptian-American for his pioneering work with lasers. Scientist, Ahmed Zewail has shown that a rapid-firing laser can observe the motion of atoms in a molecule, during chemical reactions. The Nobel Prize is the latest in a series of plaudits offered to Zewail and his colleagues at the California Institute of Technology for work in this field. It was congratulations all round when Ahmed Zewail arrived at work on Tuesday morning The 53-year-old scientist had just found out that he had been awarded the Nobel Prize for Chemistry for his work capturing ultrafast snapshots of atomic reactions. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Well in the excited state as they say, I feel well, very, very well. (Q) Did you expect it? You can never expect a Nobel Prize, nobody ever expects a Nobel Prize. People tell you that you can get it but you never expect a Nobel Prize so it was very thrilling to get the call at 5.30 this morning. (Q) What happened with the telephone call? Well the Royal Swedish Academy, the secretary-general called and he said 'I'm sorry to wake you up and I have some good news' and then he told me about the award and the significance and so on. (Q) How did you feel when you got off the phone? Did you jump in the air? I went and kissed my wife and kissed my children and she made a cup of coffee and the phone did not stop until now. It just did not stop." SUPER CAPTION: Ahmed Zewail, Nobel Laureate Colleagues who work with Zewail are elated at the award and say he's a deserving recipient. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Yeah I was excited, I woke up at six and went and turned on the computer and went on-line and there he was, Ahmed Zewail, it was unbelievable. I'm really excited, I'm so happy and I'm one hundred percent sure he deserves it, it's great." SUPER CAPTION: SOUNDBITE: (English) "He did some very good experiments in the late 80s and he's the founder of the field. Now there's hundreds of groups all over the world doing the same thing and I think many people didn't believe it was possible but he showed it was and now it's a standard thing, text-books, conferences, everywhere." SUPER CAPTION: Zewails' development known as femtochemistry, uses ultra-fast lasers to measure the movement of atoms during chemical reactions. His ground-breaking research has helped explain the way the human eye adjusts to the dark and the way plants convert light to food in photosynthesis. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Until the work at CalTech you could not really see them in real time, you could not see the motion of the atoms." SUPER CAPTION: Ahmed Zewail, Nobel Laureate Zewail grew up in Egypt and got his first science degree from Alexandria University in 1967. From there he went to the United States, where he earned a PhD from the University of Pennsylvania. He then performed research at the University of California in Berkeley and was appointed to CalTech's faculty in 1976. Zewail and his team have been showered with honours over the years, the Nobel prize is the latest.

STORYLINE: Members of the British royal family bid a final farewell to Princess Margaret at Windsor Castle on Friday, 50 years after her father, King George VI, was buried nearby. The service at Saint George's Chapel was private, though a subdued crowd of nearly three thousand wellwishers had gathered outside the gates. The principal mourners were Margaret's children, Viscount Linley and Lady Sarah Chatto, along with the queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Margaret's former husband, the Earl of Snowdon. The 101-year-old Queen Mother arrived in a people carrier and entered the building through a different entrance to the rest of her family. Some 450 people, including more than 30 royals, attended the funeral service for the 71-year-old younger sister of Queen Elizabeth II.

Close-up of Nelson Mandela nodding STORYLINE: Former South African President Nelson Mandela beamed on Monday as he watched his grandson reclaim a traditional leadership post that Mandela had renounced decades ago to become a lawyer and dedicate his life to fighting apartheid. Mandla Mandela, 32, was draped in a lion skin, the symbol of royalty, and officially installed as head of the Mvezo Traditional Council by the king of the AbaThembu, Zwelibanzi Dalindyebo, one of six kings of the Xhosa people. The ceremony took place in front of hundreds of well wishers, including tribal royalty from across the country, most of them clad in brightly coloured traditional dress and beaded headdresses. It was the first time in nearly 70 years that a member of Mandela's family from the Madiba clan took up the mantle of traditional leadership. Dressed in a black and white animal print shirt, he walked with difficulty up the stairs but otherwise looked in good health and in radiant spirits as he delivered a short speech in Xhosa in a firm voice. "That will make me sleep forever being a happy man in my grave knowing that Mandla has taken this chieftaincy that I was supposed to have taken," said Nelson Mandela. Mandla Mandela's father Makgatho, Nelson Mandela's last surviving son, died in 2005 of AIDS-related complications. His mother, Rayne Mandela-Perry, said her late husband would have been proud to see his son carry on the family legacy. Mandla Mandela, who graduated from Rhodes University's political science program last week, now has the power to decide disputes and try certain criminal and civil cases.

UK: INDONESIAN VICE PRESIDENT HABIBIE SPEAKS AT BUSINESS LUNCH
 
03:10
English/Nat Indonesian Vice-President Bacharuddin Habibie says his government is committed to reviving the country's stalled economy -- but not at the cost of prolonged social instability. Habibie predicted the Indonesian economy would rebound within two to three years, but said the government would proceed slowly to avoid provoking social unrest. Habibie is in London for a two-day summit of Asian leaders and spoke to a luncheon of British business people on Wednesday. Indonesia's new Vice President Bacharuddin Habibie was greeted warmly as he arrived for his speech to London's business elite on Wednesday afternoon. Habibie is in the U-K for a two-day summit of Asian leaders. The summit is launching a trust fund to build grassroots financial expertise in Asian countries. And Indonesia is facing its worst economic crisis in 30 years. Habibie earlier held talks with Britain's finance chief, Chancellor of the Exchequer Gordon Brown. But he used his luncheon speech to ensure potential British investors that Indonesia's economy has bottomed out. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The fact is we are coming out of this problem and if we come out we will be even better than before because we are going to learn from our mistakes and also from other mistakes and the best thing to convince you that you have to change is if you have to face that problem and if you have to solve it and indeed time is money and because of that we are not allowed to waste our time." SUPER CAPTION: Habibie Indonesia is suffering from the worst economic crisis in 30 years. The currency, the rupiah, has plunged about 70 percent and inflation and unemployment has soared. Habibie ensured his audience that Indonesia's government is in the midst of revising legislation that has led to a chokehold on the economy, especially laws which relate to banking. SOUNDBITE: (English) "We are about to get the credibility back for our bank, our banking system is very dependent on the law that is controlling, say the bankruptcy law and controlling the supervision of the banking and banking system, and even supporting the bank of Indonesia to make it more stronger than ever. I'd like to confirm that we are just in the middle of doing that. It will happen and must happen in the near future." SUPER CAPTION: Habibie The world's fourth most-populous nation has already experienced widespread social unrest. Student protests have been gathering force and there has been scattered rioting over rising food prices. However, Habibie said the government was not prepared to act on improving the economy at any cost. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I think it will take two to three years before we are back again in full speed but the most important thing is in that we have in the next weeks or next months to come out from, what you call the, minimum, we are just coming back now. And I think the Indonesian government has committed themselves to bring it back. But of course without ignoring the existing Indonesian constitution. Otherwise, we cannot bring it back at all costs and get a social political instability. Its bad." SUPER CAPTION: Habibie Habibie's lunch was sponsored by the U-K's non-profit cultural exchange group Asia House. About 60 British executives attended the lunch at a London hotel.

Obviously we don't have all the means otherwise we would not go outside Africa. We don't have all the means but nevertheless it is an African problem and clearly though the countries of the regions are the ones who have met for this problem, we can't envisage an African force seeking assistance from the outside world, we can't envisage a force that does not have South Africa"'; C/A press; SOT Mandela: "The supply of arms to Rwanda was influenced by humanitarian considerations that people who were unarmed are going to be victims of that party outside the border which is being trained and prepared to go back and commit those massacres.

UK QUEEN HOSTS JUBILEE LUNCH FOR SOVEREIGN MONARCHS
 
03:19
(18 May 2012) Britain has come under criticism for inviting the king of Bahrain, whose Gulf state has been engaged in a brutal crackdown on political dissent, to a lunch on Friday celebrating Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee. The lunch in Windsor Castle was the largest gathering of foreign royals in Britain since Queen Elizabeth II's grandson, Prince William, was married to Kate Middleton last year. Then, as now, the decision to extend an invitation to members of the Bahraini royal family has angered whose who are upset by the deadly violence deployed against demonstrators since protests erupted in the Gulf state. Bahrain's Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa eventually skipped the royal wedding, saying he didn't want the controversy to tarnish the couple's happy day. But on Friday Buckingham Palace confirmed that his father, King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, attended the queen's lunch, along with some 45 other royal guests from around the world. The Foreign Office, which advised Buckingham Palace on the invitations, said that Britain's ties to Bahrain allowed UK officials to talk frankly with the strategic island nation's rulers about "a range of issues including those where we have concerns." Al Khalifa wasn't the only controversial guest dining at Windsor Castle. Swaziland's King Mswati III, who is accused of living in luxury while his people go hungry, also attended the lunch. Other guests included Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands; Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko of Japan; the Emir of Qatar Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani and Saudi Arabia's Prince Mohammed bin Nawwaf bin Abdulaziz al Saud. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry also attended the lunch. The Diamond Jubilee marks 60 years of Elizabeth's reign as Britain's monarch.

Philippines: Cebu Province: Illegal Gun-Manufacturing Centre - 1997
 
03:23
Cebu province in the Philippines is known for its beautiful beaches and resorts. But Cebu is known to Filipinos for its illegal gun-manufacturing centred in the city of Danao. Recently, the government has approved licences for two gun manufacturing companies in Danao. But some remain in operation even without a permit, and this is likely to continue. UPSOUND: (Sound of rapid gunfire from Uzi-gram) Byron Garcia is testing what he calls an "uzi-gram". It's one of the products being manufactured by the Danao Arms Manufacturing Corporation, or Damcor - the first licensed gun manufacturer in Danao City. The city of Danao, in the Philippine central island of Cebu, has always been notorious as the centre of illegal gun manufacturing. Here, thousands of residents have been involved for decades in what is virtually considered a cottage industry, making home-made guns, popularly known as "paltik". By establishing Damcor, Garcia has legalised gun manufacturing in Danao. Damcor specialises on the 38-revolver, and is also producing machine pistols and shotguns mainly to supply the country's security agencies. Garcia has invested more than 40 (m) million pesos in Damcor, some of which were spent on machines with state of the art technology to produce some of the gun parts. But most of the work is left for the 70 workers that Garcia has employed since his company opened last year. Most of their experience is based on what they've been clandestinely doing in their backyard for years. 30-year old Lito Gonzales was into illegal gun making for ten years before he decided to work for Damcor. Here, he earns about 600-dollars a month, and is free from the anxiety of being arrested by the authorities. SOUNDBITE: (Tagalog) "Now, we're okay here, because we don't need to worry about being arrested today or tomorrow, that the police will arrest us because it's illegal to do guns outside. No more." SUPER CAPTION: Lito Gonzales, worker Danao Arms Manufacturing Corporation But despite the entry of Damcor and another licensed gun company, Garcia believes that the illegal gun- manufacturing industry in Danao will continue to flourish, mainly because of the lack of political will to remove it. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Maybe it will change a bit. But it cannot totally eradicate the illegal business here." SUPER CAPTION: Byron Garcia, President Danao Arms Manufacturing Corporation And for most of the illegal gun makers in this city, making the "paltik" in their backyards will surely be a hard habit to break. For 20-year-old Julius Capuyan, it's the only job he's known since he was 13 years old. SOUNDBITE: (Tagalog) "There's no other way of life for us here. We'd rather live this way, illegally making guns. SUPER CAPTION: Julius Capuyan Most of the people in Danao have relied on this illegal industry as their livelihood for decades making the government's job of curbing the unlicensed gun-manufacturing operations a difficult task.

Pope Benedict arrives at Elysee Palace

Pope greeting officials inside walks upstairs with Sarkozy STORYLINE Pope Benedict XVI on Friday arrived at the presidential Elysee Palace in Paris for a reception hosted by the French president and his wife. Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy earlier greeted the pontiff when he landed at Orly airport just after 11:00 a.m. (0900 GMT). On the plane, Benedict expressed understanding for France's long tradition of separating church and state, but added that, nonetheless, that religion and politics should be open to each other. Sarkozy was to host Benedict for talks at the Elysee Palace Friday. The president's office said Sarkozy planned to discuss his idea of "positive secularism" - upholding the separation of church and state, while considering religions as beneficial for society, not a danger- during talks at the Elysee Palace. Afterwards, Benedict will meet members of the Jewish community before leading a ceremony at Notre Dame cathedral. He also plans to address Muslim leaders. France is home to a growing number of Muslims whose visible customs, such as wearing headscarves in public schools, have raised the hackles of officials determined to preserve the boundaries between church and state. France, a fiercely secular country that is traditionally Roman Catholic, has Western Europe's largest population of both Jews and Muslims. French authorities will mobilise 9,200 police and other security officers for the Pope's visit, the Interior Ministry said on Wednesday. A Saturday morning Mass in central Paris is expected to draw between 150,000 and 200,000 people, the Interior Ministry has said. Later on Saturday, the pontiff will visit the Roman Catholic shrine of Lourdes in the south of France near the Pyrenees while the sanctuary celebrates the 150th anniversary of apparitions of the Virgin Mary to a local 14-year-old, Bernadette Soubirous. The shrine draws 6 million people annually, some of them disabled or desperately sick, many of them hoping for a miracle. Lourdes was the last trip abroad for Benedict's predecessor, John Paul II. When John Paul visited in 2004, he was 84 and suffering the final ravages of Parkinson's disease. He needed to be helped by aides. He died in 2005.

Audience clapping STORYLINE: Former South African President Nelson Mandela says he hopes to visit Cuba soon, perhaps before the end of the year. Mandela made the announcement with Cuban leader Fidel Castro at his side after talks in Johannesburg on Sunday. Castro spoke warmly of Mandela, saying he was glad to find him in such good health. The Cuban leader also met Blade Nzimande, the head of the South African Communist Party. Earlier in Durban, where he had been attending the racism summit, Castro spoke at a solidarity rally for Cuba and South Africa's A-N-C (African National Congress) party. Castro last visited South Africa in 1994, when he attended Nelson Mandela's presidential inauguration. This week's visit was be the first major road trip for Castro, 75, since a June 23 fainting spell that sparked concerns about his well-being. Castro and his aides insist his health is good. Communist Cuba began forming links with Africa in the first years after the January 1, 1959, revolutionary triumph that brought Castro to power. As early as 1964, revolutionary Ernesto "Che" Guevara portrayed Cuba as an advocate for black Africa in its struggle against racism and colonialism. Since the collapse of apartheid, Castro has had strong links with the South African government. South African President Thabo Mbeki joined Castro during an official visit in Havana in March for the unveiling of a bust of the late anti-apartheid leader Oliver Tambo.
