SOUNDBITE (English) Tiffany Haddish, actress: "I don't know if you've seen my interview that I did on Champs the podcast? I don't know if you listen to that? But I have been a victim. And the whole reason that I said what I said, first off, I had done like 20-something interviews that day. And in every interview you have to be humorous because you're considered a comedian, right? So I was trying to be humorous and maybe it was not the best joke. It was a joke. But at the end of the day, the whole point of it was to say I'm not afraid of the big bad wolf. I'm not afraid to be out here and do my job because people always ask, 'Are you intimidated? Are you afraid?' No! If I was, I wouldn't be doing this. So don't even like, I'll work with whomever. I'm not afraid of nobody. Nobody can do anything to me that I don't allow. So straight up. That's what I meant by that." SOUNDBITE (English) Tracy Morgan, actor: "Tiffany is a good person.

Japan - New discoveries in paper folding
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."

Nepal: Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Visit - 1995
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.

President Bush reacts to Obama's victory in 2008 election
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.

Various of Kalam STORYLINE : A missile scientist who advocates nuclear weapons as a war deterrent was sworn in as India's new president on Thursday. APJ Abdul Kalam took the oath of office given by Supreme Court Chief Justice BN Kirpal at a brief ceremony in India's circular pink sandstone parliament building. The 20-minute ceremony was witnessed by Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, his cabinet members, lawmakers and diplomats. In his acceptance speech, Kalam said India should brace itself to face the growing threats posed by terrorism, internal conflicts and unemployment and have a long term vision to transform itself into a developed country. Kalam was elected last Thursday. Both the Hindu nationalist-led governing coalition and the major opposition Congress party had backed Kalam. The 70-year-old military scientist embodies India's multi-communal makeup as the son of minority Muslim parents who has embraced the Hindu beliefs of the majority. The new president also symbolises his country's political and strategic ambitions. For more than four decades, Kalam worked in India's defence laboratories, spearheading its space and nuclear-capable missile programme. He was part of the team that conducted five underground nuclear tests in May 1998 that triggered a chain reaction of global criticism, economic sanctions and matching tests by neighbouring Pakistan. Kalam strongly advocates scientific education and invited more than 100 schoolchildren to Thursday's ceremony. For many Indians, Kalam's rise, from humble beginnings as the son of an illiterate boatman in southern Tamil Nadu state to the top of India's scientific and political establishment, symbolises the strength of India's democracy. But critics of Vajpayee's Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party say Kalam's choice was to paper over the anti-Muslim image that the government acquired after sectarian violence broke out in Gujarat state in February.

English/Nat British and Dutch scientists using a giant magnetic field have made a frog float in mid- air, and might even be able to do the same thing with a human being. The team from Britain's University of Nottingham and the University of Nijmegen in the Netherlands has also succeeded in levitating plants, grasshoppers and fish. Scientists at the University of Nijmegen in Holland have managed to make a frog float six feet (approximately two metres) in the air - and they say the trick could easily be repeated with a human. The secret is not magic but a powerful magnetic field which overcomes the force of gravity. The field makes the frog's atoms generate a weak magnetic force in the opposite direction. This causes it to be repelled in the same way as like poles of two magnets. Plants, grasshoppers and fish have been levitated by the research team in the same way. NASA, apparently, is extremely interested in the experiment in order to be able to test the effects of weightlessness on astronauts without having to put them into space. Easy, says team leader Dr Andre Geim. SOUNDBITE: (English) There is no problem with putting a man by this magnetic levitation, to fly in the air. Technically we can do it with you without any problems. SUPER CAPTION: Dr Andre Geim, Director of the High Field Magnetic Laboratory of the Catholic University of Nijmegen And for those worried about the effects on the frog - don't worry. He's not hopping mad - quite the opposite, in fact.

Eng/French/Nat Most people grumble when they have to wait too long in an airport lounge but imagine spending nine years living in an airport. For one man, an unusual set of circumstances and bureaucratic red tape means he has done just that. Known to his friends, airport workers, as 'Alfred' he has been living at Paris' Charles de Gaulle Airport since 1988. For one man, Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris has become his home. Each morning, Merhan Karimi Nasseri -- known to his friends as 'Alfred' -- awakens to find himself in the passenger lounge of the airport. Like anyone else, Alfred brushes his teeth every morning and has his morning wash... in one of the airport's public toilettes. This is followed by breakfast from a coffee shop. It's a routine he knows well. SOUNDBITE: (English) "In my experience life here in the Charles de Gaulle Airport is not bad. I try to have a nice day. Everyday I'm thinking, everyday, my future, my past. I could write my story. This is the life for about eight, nine years." SUPER CAPTION: Alfred Nasseri Alfred was born over 50 years ago in a region of Iran then under British jurisdiction. He went to university in Britain. Afterwards, he returned to Iran where he was arrested, his passport revoked and eventually he was sent off with papers that allowed him to leave the country but never return. When he arrived at the airport in 1988 he stopped to make a diary entry while waiting for authorities to sort out an immigration matter. Thousands of diary entries later he's still waiting. SOUNDBITE: (French) "I see him writing in his diary all the time with lots of papers with him. He carries his life in his boxes." SUPER CAPTION: Anna Ramasamy, airport worker and friend of "Alfred" Alfred spent nearly seven years in Brussels where he was granted a form of political asylum. Then he tried to fulfil his dream of returning to Britain. But, along the way his refugee certificate was stolen and without travel documents he ended up at the Paris airport. This is where the red tape becomes complicated. Alfred could go to Brussels in a bid to tackle the bureaucrats, but when he leaves the airport he faces the real fear of arrest by immigration authorities. Along with many others, the airport medical officer has done his best to help Alfred. SOUNDBITE: (French) "Alfred is too frightened to leave because the people working in the airport, the medical services have become his family and his world. And since he doesn't bother anyone by staying, there is no reason why he should leave the airport. No one is interested in him outside except for you, police, lawyers, customs and the airlines. Outside of Aerogare (Terminal) Number One, no one cares about Alfred. He is a man without an identity." SUPER CAPTION: Dr. Philippe Bargain, airport medical officer Since 1992 a lawyer has been working on Alfred's behalf but the documents Alfred needs to safely leave the airport have still not been supplied. His applications to enter Britain remain unsuccessful. He knows where he wants to go, but he's not sure how to get there.

Abbas added that the details of "how Pakistan can be effective" had not yet been discussed. Musharraf, a key ally of the United States in the "War Against Terror", promised support and said Pakistan is always with "our brothers", the Palestinians. Pakistan has no diplomatic ties with Israel and demands that the Jewish state end its occupation of Palestinian territory and give Palestinians the right to an independent homeland with Jerusalem as its capital. Later on Thursday Abbas arrived in India for talks with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on the situation in the Middle East. India has traditionally supported the Palestinian people's right to a state . The Indian government says it believes in the need for a just, comprehensive and lasting Middle East peace based on UN resolutions, and on a roadmap to peace drafted by the United Nations, the United States, the European Union and Russia. Direct two-way trade between India and the Palestinian territories amounts to nearly 20 (m) US dollars (euro15 million) a year. India also has been pursuing a policy of improving ties with Israel, but saying that will not come at the cost of ignoring Palestinians' aspirations.

Obama talks about relationship with Australia; joke about local accent
(16 Nov 2011) 1. Wide of U.S. President Barack Obama being introduced to speak 2. Obama walking onto stage 3. 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.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Arnold Schwarzenegger, California Governor-Elect: "I've heard your voices loud and clear. We have... tough choices ahead. The first choice that we must make is the one that will determine our success. Shall we rebuild our state together or shall we we fight amongst ourselves creating deeper division and fail the people of California. Well let me tell you something, the answer is clear. For the people to win politics as usual must lose." 5. Wide shot of rally 6. SOUNDBITE: (English) Arnold Schwarzenegger, California Governor-Elect: "I will reach out to Republicans to Democrats and independents. To those who supported the recall and those who did not.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Vox pop, Schwarzenegger supporter: "I think he can be effective. Because what you need is someone who has leadership qualities and someone who can make, you know, the right decisions, someone who also quite frankly surrounds himself with pretty smart people. And I think he can do that." 11. SOUNDBITE: (English) Vox pop, Schwarzenegger supporter: "I think California is really fed up. They've been fed up with this whole system. And what you mentioned before about no political experience, maybe that's what we need is something fresh and something new." 12. Schwarzenegger waving STORYLINE: Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger celebrated victory in the race to become California governor with hundreds of cheering supporters, including members of America's most prominent Democratic family on Tuesday. Standing hand-in-hand with his wife, Kennedy family member Maria Shriver, with her parents, Sargent Shriver and Eunice Kennedy Shriver, close by Schwarzenegger said he wanted to represent all the people of California. Speaking at the Century Plaza Hotel ballroom Schwarzenegger said he had received a gracious phone call from Governor Gray Davis conceding his defeat. Schwarzenegger pledged to bring jobs back to the state, improve education and restore trust in government, and urged his opponents to join him in solving California's problems. Earlier, as televisions in the ballroom monitored Davis' concession speech, the crowd of about 1,000 applauded when Davis said voters had decided it was time for someone else to serve as governor. Schwarzenegger raised at least 21.5 (m) million US dollars for the race, some 10 (m) million US dollars of which from his own pocket. The celebration must quickly give way to planning for a lightning-fast transition that will take place as soon as the election is certified, and no later than November 15. Schwarzenegger's campaign co-chairman, Republican David Dreier, will lead his transition team, campaign spokesman Todd Harris said.

It's the only difference I can see." 34. Mid press photographers 35. Pearl and Ruby posing for photos LEAD IN: Twins are said to be identical when they develop from one egg that spits into two embryos.

Major archaeological discovery in Northern Iraq
1. Older site with temple and complete winged lion statues 2. Ruins of newly discovered site 3. Various of Iraqi experts excavating the site 5. Man in the Ancient Well at Nimrud 6. SOUNDBITE: (English) Muzahim Mahmoud Hussien, Chief of the Excavation team Nimrud "These two lions are a big size but the upper part is destroyed because it is near the surface, and also because maybe some person attacked it and destroyed it in ancient times. And these two lions are important because on the faces are text and the text was translated by a sepical doctor (expert) in our department in Mosul University who told us it belonged to the King Ashur the second who ruled the Assyrian Empire in the 9th century B-C." 7. Various of previously discovered site with intact winged lions STORYLINE An important archaeological discovery has been unearthed in Northern Iraq. The Iraqi Antiquities and Heritage Department announced Monday the discovery of a temple and two-winged lions in the ancient city of Al-Nimured. The findings date back to 800 (eight hundred years) B-C. In the temple dedicated to the Goddess Ishtar (an ancient Goddess of Love and War) are two-winged standing lions. On each side of the lions, experts found uniform writings and ornamentations which revealed that the two lions date back to the era of Ashur, the most famous Assyrian King who reigned from 883 - 859 B.C. The empire of Assyria was situated in northern Mesopotamia, what is now modern Iraq. Assyria was the major power in the ancient Near East from about 900 to about 600 B-C and the capital cities of Nimrud and Nineveh were unrivalled in size and splendor. Nimrud is already celebrated for its ancient Assyrian tombs and statues.

President Barack Obama, President Bill Clinton and their wives laid a wreath at the John F. Kennedy
U.S. President Barack Obama paid tribute Wednesday to former President John F. Kennedy's legacy, joining former President Bill Clinton to lay a wreath at Kennedy's grave and presenting a freedom medal that Kennedy conceived before his assassination 50 years ago this week. One on each side, Obama and Clinton held the hands of Ethel Kennedy, widow of Robert F. Kennedy, as they made their way up the stairs at Arlington National Cemetery. First lady Michelle Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton joined the two presidents to place a wreath near the eternal flame that marks Kennedy's gravesite. Obama and Clinton placed their hands over their hearts as a bugler played taps near an American flag at half-staff. Obama made no public comments, but greeted Kennedy relatives gathered to honor his legacy ahead of the 50th anniversary of his assassination on Friday. The daylong tribute began earlier at the White House, where Obama bestowed the Presidential Medal of Freedom on prominent Americans including Bill Clinton and Oprah Winfrey. Kennedy established the modern version of the medal, but was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas on November 22, 1963, two weeks before he planned to honour the inaugural group of recipients. In the evening, Obama plans a speech on Kennedy's legacy of service at a dinner at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History attended by current and past medal recipients, including baseball's Hank Aaron, astronaut Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin, singer Aretha Franklin, former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, activist Jesse Jackson and former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. Kennedy's grandson, Jack Schlossberg, is to introduce Obama at the dinner. Other Kennedy relatives are expected to attend, including Robert Kennedy's daughter Kathleen Kennedy Townsend and former diplomat Jean Kennedy Smith, a former medal recipient and John F. Kennedy's only surviving sibling. Friday marks 50 years to the day since Kennedy was slain while riding in an open car in a motorcade during a visit to Dallas. Obama plans to meet privately at the White House on Friday with leaders and volunteers from the Peace Corps program, also established by Kennedy. The Clintons' presence at the eternal flame where Kennedy is buried is sure to spark speculation about whether Obama has a favorite in the 2016 race to succeed him. For Hillary Rodham Clinton, his former secretary of state, her every move is scrutinized for signs of whether she'll run.

President Bush ducks as man throws shoes at him in protest
George W Bush got a size-10 reminder of the fervent opposition to his policies when a man threw two shoes at him - one after another - during a news conference with Iraq Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. 1.

Pull back wide, man throws second shoe, Bush ducks. Security hold man on the floor UPSOUND: shouting 4. Slow Motion sequence of man throwing shoes STORYLINE His legacy forever linked to an unpopular war, President George W. Bush visited Iraq under intense security on Sunday and declared that the long, hard conflict was necessary to protect the United States and give Iraqis hope. But he got a size-10 reminder of the fervent opposition to his policies when a man threw two shoes at him - one after another - during a news conference with Iraq Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. This is the end," shouted the man, later identified as Muntadar al-Zeidi, a correspondent for Al-Baghdadiya television, an Iraqi-owned station based in Cairo, Egypt. Bush ducked both throws. Neither leader was hit. In Iraqi culture, throwing shoes at someone is a sign of contempt - Iraqis whacked a statue of Saddam Hussein with their shoes after US Marines toppled it to the ground after the 2003 invasion. "All I can report," Bush joked after the incident, "is a size 10." The US president visited the Iraqi capital just 37 days before he hands the war off to President-elect Barack Obama, who has pledged to end it.

Various of car driving off STORYLINE Church and state, hundreds of warriors of other battles and ordinary townsfolk paid final tribute on Thursday to Britain's last World War I infantry veteran, in a memorial service marking his death at age 111. Several hundred people gathered under leaden skies on the green outside Wells cathedral in Somerset to watch Harry Patch's coffin, shrouded in a Union flag, being carried off for burial. As the hearse passed townspeople paid a silent tribute. An hour before the service, people lined up along the mile-long (two kilometre-long) route from the nursing home where Patch had spent his last days to the cathedral. Among the crowd were many elderly men with military medals on their chests. The top commander of British forces also attended the service at Wells Cathedral, and an honour guard was drawn from The Rifles regiment, successor to Patch's unit. Soldiers from France, Germany and Belgium were also escorting the coffin, in tribute to Patch's respect for all the soldiers in the war. Patch, who died July 25, only began talking about his experience of trench warfare in his last years. He had returned, wounded, from the Western Front and quietly lived out his life as a plumber. Patch boasted that he hadn't killed anyone in combat, but he did shoot at the legs of a German soldier who had charged with a bayonet. At least 8.5 (m) million soldiers are reckoned to have died in the war. Patch will be buried where he was born, in the mining village of Combe Down, 20 miles (33 kilometres) northeast of Wells. He was part of a British offensive which began on July 31, 1917, in the third battle of Ypres. He was wounded on September 22 in a shell blast which killed three members of his gun team. The offensive carried on until November 6 when the British claimed victory, having advanced five miles (eight kilometres) in three months to capture what was left of the village of Passchendaele. There were nearly 600-thousand dead and injured on the two sides. He returned to the battlefield for the first time in September, laying a wreath which he said was in remembrance all who served "on both side of the line." Working with historian Richard van Emden, Patch produced a book in 2007, 'The Last Fighting Tommy,' a reference to the nickname given to soldiers of that era. Patch joined two other veterans - Henry Allingham and Bill Stone - on November 11 at the national Remembrance service in London, all in wheelchairs. Allingham, 113, an air force veteran, died a week before Patch. Royal Navy veteran Stone, 108 and the last British veteran to serve in both World Wars, died on January 10.

US President Bush visits the Islamic Centre - 2001
1. Wide shot Bush and Arab American representative addressing journalists 2. SOUNDBITE (English) George W Bush, U -S President: "Thank you all very much for your hospitality. We just had some wide-ranging discussions on the matter in hand. Like the good folk standing with me, the American people were appauled and outraged at last Tuesday's attacks and so were Muslims all acros the world. Both Americans, our Muslim friends, our citizens, our tax-paying citizens and Muslims in (other) nations were just appaulled - could not believ - what we saw on our TV screens. These acts of violence against innocents violate the fundamental tenets of Islamic faith and it is important for our fellow Americans to understand that. The English translation is not as eloquent as the original Arabic, but let me quote from the Qoran itself: 'In the long run evil in the extreme will be the end of those who do evil. For that they rejectedthe signs of Allah and held them up to ridicule.' The face of terror is not the true faith of Islam. That's not what Islam is all about. Islam is peace. These terrorisrts don't represent peace -they represent evil and war. When we think of ISlam we think of a faith that brings comfort to a billion people around the world - billions of people find comfort and solace in peace. And that has made brothers and sisters out of every race - out of every race. America counts millions of Muslims amongst our citizens and Muslims make an incredibly valuable contribution to our country: Muslims are doctors, lawyers, law professors, members of the military, entrepreneurs, shopkeepers, moms and dads and they need to be treated with respect. In our anger and emotion, our fellow Americans, we must treat each other with respect. Women who cover their heads in this country must feel comfortable ghoing outside their homes. Moms who wear covermust not be intimidated in America. That's not the America I know. That's not the America I value. I hjave been told that some fear to elave, some don't want ot go shopping for their families, some don't want to go back to ordinary daily routines because by wearing cover they are aftraid that they will be intimidated. That should not - and that will not - stand in America. Those who feel like they can intimidate our fellow citizens to take out their anger, they don't represent the best of America, the represent the worst of hunman kind and they should be ashamed of that kind of behaviuor. And this is a great country, it;s a great xountry because we share the same values of respect and dignity and human worth. And it is my honour to be meeting with leaders who feel jst the same way that I do. They are outraged, they are sad, they love America just as much as I do. And I want to thank you all for giving me a chance to come by and may God bless us all. " 3. Cutaway wide shot Bush and others 4. SOUNDBITE (English): " 5. Various Bush being shown around the Islamic Centre STORYLINE: President Bush visited the Washington Islamic Center about two miles (3.2 kilometers) from the White House and decried prejudice against Muslim and Arab- Americans. Those venting such anger "don't represent the best of America, they represent the worst of humankind and they should be ashamed of their behavior," Bush said. In stockinged feet, he stood with his back to an ornately tiled prayer alcove and read a passage from the Koran: "In the long run, evil in the extreme will be the end of those who do evil." Added Bush: "Islam is peace. These terrorists don't represent peace."

English/Nat More than 150 illegal immigrants were brought ashore after their ship began to sink off the southern Italian coast on Friday. The Turkish ship, the Magnolia, was towed to safety by the Italian coast guard after it sent out a distress signal that it was taking on water. The immigrants are spending Friday night in Puglia police station. The Magnolia was taken into port in Gallipoli on Italy's southern Puglia coast after being found three kilometres (two miles) out to sea by an air rescue search team. The rescue operation was mounted after the ship radioed that it was taking on water. The vessel was said to be carrying more than 150 illegal immigrants. The immigrants, including four women and five children, came from half a dozen countries: India, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Senegal and Turkey. Some identification problems arose due to the lack of passports and other documents. The illegal immigrants were brought into port by three small boats. Those taken ashore were reported to be in good health following the rescue. One report said the ship began sinking due to a gash in its side. Illegal immigration is an increasing problem for the Italian authorities, with thousands of new arrivals coming in every year. Puglia is a common arrival point for new immigrants entering by sea in the hope of a new life in Europe. This immigrant aboard the sinking boat had come from Istanbul and was making his way to France. SOUNDBITE: (English) "We are from Pakistan we have got three-thousand dollars from Istanbul our agent to go to France. We come by ship, we don't know how they bring us here. Ship was out of water and we just in the sea. The Italian police come and take us outside." SUPER CAPTION: Immigrant passenger aboard the rescued boat The problem with immigration is so bad the local police station, where the immigrants are spending the night, has rooms specially designated for illegal immigrants. The Italian Foreign Ministry citing estimates by the Roman Catholic charity Caritas, says at least half a (m) million illegal immigrants reached Italy in 1996. About half of those were eventually allowed to stay. Many illegal immigrants slip through the net, taking advantage of the European Union's free movement laws by moving on to other countries, such as Germany and France. These immigrants, however, will probably find that their rescuers - the Italian authorities - having brought them ashore, will send them straight back home.

Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry arrive at velodrome
(2 Aug 2012) STORYLINE: Cycling fans arrived at the Olympic velodrome on Thursday for the track cycling events - with Britons having high hopes for their country's competitors. Members of the British royal family were there, too, including Prince William, the Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince Harry. Inside the velodrome, the women's team sprint world record fell three times in rapid succession - with home favourites Victoria Pendleton and Jessica Varnish clocking 32.526 seconds over the two laps of the velodrome during qualifying to improve on the previous mark of 32.549 set by Germany in April. But British fans were quickly silenced by the Chinese pairing of Gong Jinjie and Guo Shuang, who went on to beat the record twice. And, in a huge upset for the home fans, Pendleton and Varnish saw their medal hopes vanish when they were later relegated for making an early change in the first round. More controversy erupted in the final when China won, but were then eliminated themselves, giving gold to Germany, which had already seen defeat turn to victory against Britain. But British fans had something to cheer when Chris Hoy has won a fifth Olympic gold medal with victory in the men's team sprint alongside Philip Hindes and Jason Kenny in a world record time of 42.6 seconds.

Eng/Khmer/Nat Cambodia's Second Prime Minister Hun Sen agreed on Tuesday to let opposition politicians return home and permit the United Nations to observe next year's election. But he hinted he might withdraw the offer if his government was denied a U-N General Assembly seat. Hun Sen also refused to guarantee that his rival, the deposed co-prime minister Prince Norodom Ranariddh, would be immune from prosecution if he returned. The prince was ousted last July in a violent coup staged by Hun Sen. Cambodia's warring factions aired their differences at the United Nations on Tuesday. Second Prime Minister Hun Sen and his ousted rival, former first Prime Minister Prince Norodom Ranariddh, met separately with U-N Secretary-General Kofi Annan to discuss the status of Cambodia's General Assembly seat. The U-N credentials committee has delayed a decision on whether to accredit delegations loyal to Hun Sen or Ranariddh during the current General Assembly debate. The diplomatic conflict comes three months after Hun Sen engineered a coup in the Cambodian capital, Phnom Penh, and deposed Ranariddh. Hun Sen said it had been necessary to seize total control because Ranariddh was allegedly plotting with the Khmer Rouge to assassinate him. SOUNDBITE: (Khmer) "According to the plan that we captured, there was some plan to assassinate me and also in one of the statement of his chief cabinet, he told foreign correspondents (that) Hun Sen was already killed the fifth of July." SUPER CAPTION: Hun Sen, Second Prime Minister, Cambodia Hun Sen said it was up to the courts to decide whether to prosecute Ranariddh for allegedly cooperating with Khmer Rouge guerrillas in Cambodia and maintained that he had no right to intervene. SOUNDBITE: (Khmer/English) "Prince Ranariddh is in conflict with the law prohibiting movement of Khmer Rouge troops inside the city of Phnom Penh. (English translation follows) Prince Ranariddh is in conflict with the law prohibiting the illegal import of weapons into the country. " SUPER CAPTION: Hun Sen, Second Prime Minister, Cambodia Following his talks with Annan, Hun Sen said he agreed to allow the U-N to organise and guarantee the safe return of opposition politicians who fled the country during the coup. He also revealed that they had discussed preparations for the U-N to monitor next May's elections. But Hun Sen added that the issues of the U-N General Assembly seat and the world body's role in the elections were inter-related, suggesting that Cambodia would withdraw its offer if a seat was denied to his government. His rival, Prince Ranariddh, on the other hand, praised the U-N committee for its decision to leave the Cambodian seat vacant. He insisted that all opposition politicians - including himself - be allowed to return unconditionally and without fear of prosecution or reprisals. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I have said that first of all we have to talk about the return, safe return of all politicians, activists, personalities, members of government, members of parliament who are in exile for opposing Mr. Hun Sen, and when we are talking about personalities, we have to talk about myself without any charges, any criminal charges." SUPER CAPTION: Prince Norodom Ranariddh, deposed First Prime Minister, Cambodia Ranariddh said the elections would not be credible without his participation. Hun Sen said he had no plans to meet Ranariddh while in New York. The second prime minister rapidly consolidated his power in Cambodia after the takeover but has to win international acceptance. The coup broke up a coalition put into place after the 1993 elections, which were held under the most costly United Nations peacekeeping mission ever mounted.

Iraq federal police battle IS militants in Mosul
(31 May 2017) On the edges of Mosul's old city, Iraqi federal police on Wednesday continued to fight a low-scale war of attrition with Islamic State militants. There has been no movement on this section of the frontline for many weeks but the two sides continue to target each other with harassing fire. Most of the movement recently has been in the northern part of western Mosul where different Iraqi units have been trying clear the remaining neighbourhoods outside the old city. Here, the police are watching IS with drones and observation cameras, and they call in airstrikes or mortar fire whenever they spot an enemy unit. They also try to hit each other with snipers that are positioned all along the line. The police think that there are no more than 400 to 500 IS fighters left in the old city. They say that the IS fighters try to make up for their low numbers by moving around quickly and probing different sections of the Iraqi line.

Waterspout hits Sydney to Hobart yacht race
(27 Dec 2001) Off east coast of Australia - 27 December 2001 1. Various of twister in front of Nicorette yacht 2. Nicorette crew below decks 3. Wide shot Nicorette yacht battling through high seas 4. Zoom in on twister from coast STORYLINE: A big twister struck the Sydney to Hobart yacht race late on Wednesday, nearly knocking out favourites the Nicorette team. Disaster struck the Swedish maxi yacht off the east coast of Australia, tearing its mainsail and nearly carrying away skipper Ludde Ingvall. He described the experience as "surreal". Seasoned sailor Ingvall said he'd seen twisters before but had always managed to avoid them. But this one followed the boat and they had no choice but to go through the middle of it. Nicorette managed to get back on track by Thursday, closing the gap on race leader and Volvo around-the-world entrant Illbruck of Germany. The encounter with the twister had forced Nicorette to drop back into 15th place overnight. Skipper Ludde Ingvall said the 80-foot maxi was now in about sixth position and making up ground with the use of its backup mainsail. Nicorette last year recorded the second fastest line-honours victory in the 57-year history of the 630-nautical-mile Sydney to Hobart race. The race record of 1 day, 19 hours, 48 minutes and 2 seconds was set in 1999 by Danish 60-footer Nokia. Earlier Thursday, eight of the 75 starters had retired after a night of thunderstorm activity and southwesterly winds of up to 30 knots. Boats contesting the Volvo Ocean Race filled the top positions. They are en route to Auckland, New Zealand on the third leg of the around-the-world race, with a stop in Hobart. Illbruck is the overall race leader after winning the first two legs.

Japanese PM Shinzo Abe begins a three-day official visit to Russia

Mid of troops marching 9. Army band marching past plane 10. Abe entering building 11. Close-up of national Russian and Japanese flags 12. Abe's motorcade leaving STORYLINE Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe arrived in Moscow on Sunday, on the first leg of an "economic diplomacy" tour to Russia, Turkey and the Middle East aimed at building business ties and possibly reaching a breakthrough with Moscow. Japan's relations with Russia are taking a decidedly business-like turn, as the countries put economic imperatives ahead of a longstanding territorial dispute. Japan and Russia have yet to sign a peace treaty formally ending hostilities from World War II thanks to a group of four islands north of Hokkaido that were captured by Russian forces at the war's end. Yet, the legacy of antagonism over the islands was utterly absent from a forum of businessmen gathered this week in one of Tokyo's poshest hotels to drum up Japanese investments in the Russia's Far East island of Sakhalin. The discussions of huge energy projects planned or already built suggest that economic prerogatives are overriding other concerns as both sides focus on their mutual interest in boosting trade and investment. With rival China also pursuing closer energy cooperation, Japan has more incentive than ever to put historical roadblocks aside and get down to business. Abe said recently he will seek to resume stalled talks on the territorial dispute when he meets Russian President Vladimir Putin, the first official visit by a Japanese prime minister to Moscow in a decade. He told parliament said he hoped to build "new momentum" and set a future course for relations during his visit. He will also visit Turkey, where Japan is hoping to seal a deal to export nuclear technology, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Japan, the world's biggest consumer of natural gas, imports 39 percent of the liquefied natural gas from Sakhalin I, a huge, multinational project between Russia's Rosneft, Japan's Sodeco, ExxonMobil and other major partners that pooled resources to exploit the reserves found off the island's coast in the 1970s and 1980s. The closure of most of Japan's nuclear power plants following the disaster in Fukushima has boosted demand for LNG and other conventional fuels.

Her Majesty was expected to watch the opening game on Centre Court between British number one, Andy Murray and Finnish player, Jarkko Nieminen. The queen emerged from a car near Wimbledon's practice courts an hour before the day's first matches, and walked toward Centre Court along a walkway lined with spectators. When she reached the members' lawn, she met several players, including Roger Federer, Venus and Serena Williams, Andy Roddick, and former Wimbledon champions Martina Navratilova and Billie Jean King. Serena Williams greeted the queen with the curtsey she had been practicing. Roddick and Federer bowed. Spectators cheered as the queen then walked to the clubhouse for lunch. The last time the queen visited in 1977, she presented Virginia Wade with the ladies' singles championship. No Briton has won a singles title since. Murray is the only British singles player left in this year's tournament. Although in decades past the tennis club maintained a tradition of a bow or curtsey to royal attendees, that practice was dropped in 2003. Murray says he still may bow.

Mattis hosts Saudi Crown Prince at Pentagon
(16 Mar 2017) US Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis hosted and roundtable meeting at the Pentagon Thursday with Saudi Arabia's Deputy Crown Prince and Minister of Defense. The Pentagon visit followed a White House meeting between Prince Mohammad bin Salman and President Trump on Tuesday. In opening remarks before the meeting, Secretary Mattis said the U.S.-Saudi relationship "has held firm through good times and bad" over many decades. And he thanked the 31-year-old leader for his "vigorous leadership" and "willingness to broaden and deepen" Saudi Arabia's support for common efforts. For his part, the Crown Prince said his nation is "on the front line facing" very serious dangers in the region and the world. He listed Iran and extremist organizations as the top challenges Saudi Arabia faces but said his country is "very optimistic under the leadership of President Trump." During the White House meeting earlier in the week, Trump reportedly emphasized the need to normalize relations between the US and Saudi Arabia, which had soured in recent years over Saudi objections to the Iran nuclear deal, reached by the Obama administration.

Wide of Graham being interviewed STORYLINE The head of an American Christian aid agency held talks with North Korea's foreign minister in an "amicable atmosphere" on Wednesday, Pyongyang's official news agency said. Reverend Franklin Graham, the son of late American evangelist Billy, arrived in Pyongyang on Tuesday to deliver aid, saying he hoped his visit would "play the role of a bridge for better relations" between the US and North Korea, according to the North's official Korean Central News Agency. On Wednesday, Graham held talks with North Korean Foreign Minister Pak Ui Chun "in an amicable atmosphere," KCNA said in a one-sentence dispatch. Graham offered a gift to North Korean leader Kim Jong Il via Kim Yong Dae, the country's vice parliamentary speaker, KCNA said later. APTN North Korea filmed Graham meeting Kim Yong Dae and explaining the gift. Graham's visit marks the first by an American aid agency in months. In March, North Korea began refusing American food shipments and booted out all US aid groups operating in the country. Then it launched a long-range rocket and conducted a nuclear test, drawing a raft of United Nations sanctions. In response to the measures, North Korea pulled out of international disarmament talks. But more recently, the North has indicated it would be willing to restart those negotiations if it were able to hold direct talks with Washington - a long-held goal of the reclusive regime. In an apparent attempt to bolster its negotiating position ahead of any talks, the North fired several missiles off its eastern coast on Monday. North Korea has suffered chronic food shortages since flooding and mismanagement destroyed its economy in the mid-1990s. Widespread famine is believed to have killed some two (m) million North Koreans, with more than six (m) million needing food handouts, according to the UN World Food Programme. APTN filmed Graham and his delegation touring a mobile dental clinic. Billy Graham's family has had relations with the communist North for years.

Mandela amongst mourners for veteran of anti-apartheid struggle
SHOTLIST 1. Former South African President Nelson Mandela arriving at the home of Adelaide Tambo, getting out of car 2. Mandela greeting Dali Tambo, son of Adelaide Tambo 3. SOUNDBITE (English) Nelson Mandela, Former South African President: "I am so sorry, about what has happened. Very sorry, but these things happen. It is painful of course, but you must forget them. I know how brave you are and you have taken after your father Oliver. He was one of the bravest persons I have come across and I am sure you can take courage from his bravery. I came here because I thought that it is necessary for those that you know to be present and to come and say to you (He speaks in Zulu)Whatever happens to you, do not let it hinder your life." 4. Mandela greeting supporter 5. SOUNDBITE (English) Nelson Mandela, Former South African President: "Ma-Tambo (Adelaide Tambo) has been a powerful and effective personality in the ANC (African National Congress), she coped with problems very well and encourage all others to cope with problems." 6. Various of Mandela and wife Gracia Machel walking into house 7. Mid shot of car arriving carrying South African President Thabo Mbeki 8.

And maintained contact with her and she was fine. So indeed it came as a very big shock." 9. Cutaway of cameras 10. Mbeki greeting family members STORYLINE Former South African President Nelson Mandela joined the nation on Thursday in mourning his long-time friend and fellow veteran of the anti-apartheid struggle, Adelaide Tambo. Tambo, widow of African National Congress hero Oliver Tambo, died at her home in Johannesburg on Wednesday evening, according to an African National Congress (ANC) statement that gave no other details. She was 77. The governing African National Congress said funeral arrangements had not yet been completed. Like her husband, Adelaide Tambo, fondly known as Ma-Tambo or Mama Adelaide, was a lifelong political activist. Mandela, who shares a birthday with Adelaide Tambo, gathered with family and friends at the Tambo home. "I came here because I thought that it is necessary for those that you know to be present and to come," Mandela told Adelaide's son, Dali Tambo. South African President Thabo Mbeki arrived shortly after, describing Adelaide's death as a "very big shock". Born July 18, 1929, Adelaide Tambo became involved in politics when she was 10 years old. Her ailing grandfather, aged 82, was arrested in a police raid following a riot in which a police officer had been killed. He collapsed and while she awaited for him to regain consciousness, she decided to devote her life to the fight against white racist rule. Five years later she started working for the ANC as a courier, while still studying. She joined the ANC Youth League and was almost immediately elected chairperson. She met her future husband at the launch of a new youth league branch and agreed to marry him in 1956. Three weeks before their wedding, Oliver Tambo was arrested and charged with 155 other ANC members, including Nelson Mandela, for high treason. The wedding went ahead four days after the suspects were released on bail. The trial lasted for more than three years, ending in the acquittal of all the accused. The Tambos fled from South Africa in 1960 upon the advice of other ANC activists. Oliver Tambo won support around the world for the anti-apartheid movement. He died of a stroke in 1993, one year before the country's first multiracial democratic elections.

English language could rival French in Algeria
(23 Jan 2017) LEADIN: English is starting to surpass French as the main foreign language in Algeria. Changing attitudes have contributed to the shift. STORY-LINE: The streets outside the University of Algiers are bustling. Traditionally this is a Francophone institution, where key subjects such as Law and Medicine are taught in French. Since the French colonisation of Algeria in the 19th Century, this has been a Francophone country. But this could soon change, as interest in the English language increases. The British Institute is a language college that caters to the increased demand for English lessons. It's a piece of the United Kingdom in the Algerian Capital, and is full of students eager to begin learning or improve their English. It has been open since 2012 and offers accredited Cambridge English language assessments. It is a "learning centre and it is also an organisation with a mission to promote expertise and excellence in teaching, learning, and assessment of the English language of the students," explains British Institute director Jalil Gosab. Tarik Touati is a teacher at the Institute. He has witnessed increasing interest in learning English. "We still consider that nowadays more and more students are getting involved, so they realise more that English is very important nowadays in terms of the work, the studies," he says. According to official statistics, only five percent of Algerians can speak English, while the number of French speakers is estimated to be around 30 percent. This may change for several reasons, one of them being that English is now taught in Algerian middle schools. Gosab believes English may overtake French. "Back then, like if you go back nine or ten years ago, there was a phobia of the English language here, especially by those Francophones. But now since English is spoken by a significant, well you like it or not, whether we like it or not, English is spoken by a significant number," he says. Hundreds of private English institutes are opening their doors across the country, and the change can be seen in the streets of Algiers, where many shops now have English names. Arabic and Tamazight are the two officially recognised languages of Algeria, and French is spoken in most of the big cities.

Mid shot of packaged basil in produce area LEADIN Farming in abandoned warehouses has become a hot trend in Chicago and other parts of the the United States - with varying degrees of success. But few, if anyone, in America has tried it at the "mega farm" level, as one outlet is now trying to do. STORYLINE: Sowing the seeds of success - these are often called "vertical" farms because, within the buildings, farmers build tall structures with several levels of growing beds, often lined with artificial lights. Elsewhere, growers are incorporating greenhouses and natural light into their models - on rooftops, or in large fields. "Aquaponic" farms, which also raise tilapia and other fish, use water circulated to the plants that is fertilized with fish excrement. How is FarmedHere different than other vertical farms in the United States? But challenges remain.

Natural Sound The Irish President, Mary Robinson, has met Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace on her four-day visit to Britain. She is the first Irish head of state to make an official trip to Britain. Earlier, Robinson met the opposition leader Tony Blair. President Robinson is on the second of her four day visit to Britain. She arrived at Buckingham Palace for lunch as London's temperature hit the mid 70s (around 24 centigrade). Observers are seeing the visit as a sign of warming relations between London and Dublin. Her trip is the first official visit to Britain by an Irish President. Irish Foreign Minister, Dick Spring, was also at Buckingham Palace to attend the lunch. Before lunch, President Robinson was saluted by the 1st Battalion Irish Guards. She then inspected the 100 members of the Irish Guards, while a band played Irish tunes.

US First Lady Michelle Obama meets Chinese President  Xi Jinping and his wife Peng Liyuan
US First Lady Michelle Obama met Chinese President Xi Jinping on the first day of her visit to China on Friday. Accompanied by his wife Peng Liyuan, Xi had a group photo with Obama, her mother Marian Shields Robinson and two daughters Sasha and Malia. In the meeting, Xi recalled his meeting with President Obama at Sunnylands estate in California last June and asked Michelle Obama to come back to China with her husband in November when Beijing hosts this year's APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation) leaders' summit. Michelle Obama arrived in Beijing on Thursday. She visited a high school in Beijing and toured the Forbidden City earlier on Friday with Chinese First Lady Peng Liyuan. The visit marks the first meeting between Obama and Peng, whose husbands run the world's first and second largest economies and have sought to build a new relationship based on trust and mutual respect. Her China visit has been seen as a prelude to an upcoming meeting between Xi and Obama at a nuclear security summit in The Hague, when more thorny issues would be raised. Aides for the First Lady have said she is staying away from contentious issues but is keen to promote education and people-to-people exchanges during the seven-day, three-city visit.

Mid shot of poster announcing that Poland is joining the Schengen area 14. Close up of poster reading "Schengen" 15. Wide of border control point with big poster STORYLINE: On the Polish-German border officials were preparing on Thursday for the former communist country to join the EU's passport-free travel zone. Border controls along the old Iron Curtain from the Baltic Sea to the Adriatic cease to exist from midnight on Thursday. The entry of nine nations into the EU's Schengen area means citizens can travel by land or sea between 24 European nations from Portugal to Poland, Iceland to Estonia without facing border checks. As a condition for joining, the new members have tightened controls on their borders with non-EU nations and linked into an information exchange system for police and border guards around the EU. "The one-stop control will be abolished, but we are well equipped to guarantee the monitoring of the borders in the area around the borders in the future,'' said Jens Schobranski, the press officer for Federal police in Frankfurt/Oder. However some residents did have concerns. "It's going to be difficult for the police to control, but I hope everything is going to be fine,'' said a German citizen. Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Malta joined the EU in 2004, but have had to wait before gaining access to the frontier-free zone pending reforms to bring standards of their police and border guards in line with EU norms. Travellers from outside the EU will be able to move freely within the extended zone on a visa obtained from any one of the member nations. Among the changes expected Friday, controls will fade away on the busy land crossings between Germany and Poland. Air passengers flying between the old and new EU member states will continue to face passport controls, although they too are scheduled to disappear on March 30. The Schengen agreement is named after the village in Luxembourg where it was signed in 1985 by France, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands to allow citizens to travel freely between them. Since then they have been joined by Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Austria, Denmark, Sweden and Finland, as well as non-EU nations Norway and Iceland.

Spanish/Nat President Ernesto Zedillo used his most important speech of the year on Monday to pledge his cooperation with Mexico's first opposition-led Congress in more than 68 years. Zedillo promised he would respect Congress and was ready to share responsibility with the body, which formally began its three-year term on Monday after elections on 6 July. Mexican President Ernesto Zedillo entered the country's Congress chamber on Monday to deliver one of his most important speeches - his state of the nation address. But for the first time in decades the president addressed a Congress over which he now has little control. For 68 years Mexico's lower house was in the control of the president's ruling party, the Institutional Revolutionary Party (P-R-I). But this is no longer the case following opposition gains in the July elections. Members of Zedillo's P-R-I had threatened a boycott prior to the State of the Nation address, in protest at what they called irregularities in tactics used by the opposition. Four opposition parties banded together on Saturday to appoint a Speaker of the Congress. Despite this, President Zedillo pledged his party's cooperation with the legislature. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "I reiterate strongly, with an unshakable promise, that the government will continue working with all state and local governments regardless of their political party." SUPER CAPTION: Ernesto Zedillo, President of Mexican Congressional deputies listened quietly as he said that Mexico was capable of ironing out its political problems without outside help. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "We have clearly insisted that all negotiation with Mexico is our national sovereignty. We Mexicans govern ourselves and we don't accept external interference in our internal affairs." SUPER CAPTION: Ernesto Zedillo, President of Mexican He urged the Congress not to abandon work started before the elections, most notably on the thorny issue of drug trafficking. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "We should all give the firm promise that we will not give up until we have vanquished the crime of drug trafficking." SUPER CAPTION: Ernesto Zedillo, President of Mexican Although the U-S is a partner with Mexico in fighting the drug war, Mexico has sometimes complained that it has been an overbearing ally. Zedillo has praised the democratic reforms which allowed the opposition Democratic Revolution Party to succeed at the polls. But he urged the new Congress not to abandon the economic policies that his P-R-I party had implemented. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "Today I convoke all parties represented in this Congress that we work together so that Mexico can count on a government policy and a state policy of economic improvement to reach social justice." SUPER CAPTION: Ernesto Zedillo, President of Mexican But the new legislature is likely to spend the last three years of Zedillo's term attacking his economic policies, ending decades of rubber-stamping of nearly all presidential initiatives. Opposition leader Porfirio Munoz Ledo, who has been elected Speaker of the Congress, gave a guarded response to the presidential speech. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "We will carefully analyse the contents of the address you have given to the Congress to meet your constitutional duties. I'm certain that the Chamber of Deputies will appreciate sharing with you in the next meeting the results of our deliberations. If we aim for the health of the republic, that is what we will achieve." SUPER CAPTION: Porfirio Munoz Ledo, Opposition Leader Opposition deputies have vowed to maintain the fragile unity that has put Mexico's ruling party into a legislative minority for the first time since it was founded in 1929.

English/Nat Mother Teresa, the Roman Catholic nun who devoted her life to helping the world's poor, died on Friday, aged 87. Her death comes less than a week after the tragic death of Diana, Princess of Wales, also remembered as a woman of great compassion. Hundreds of mourners have gathered outside Mother Teresa's home in Calcutta, devastated at the news of her passing. But there were angry and emotional scenes there on Saturday morning after nuns blocked access to the Chapel where Teresa's body lies. Mother Teresa's body in the chapel of the Missionaries of Charity order. Her body lies on a bed of ice . Teresa's hands are clasped and she wears the simple habit of her order - a blue- trimmed white sari and long-sleeved blouse. Young nuns who filed past touched and kissed her feet in a traditional Indian gesture of respect. Mother Teresa, who won a Nobel peace prize for her life-saving work around the world, died in Calcutta, the Indian city where her charitable works began. Her heart gave out on Friday evening, at home in her convent. For more than 40 years, Mother Teresa and the order she founded, the Missionaries of Charity, comforted the destitute and cared for the sick and insane. The 87-year-old nun was adored by millions as a living saint for caring for the human castoffs the world wanted to forget. Mourners paid their respects as she lay on her deathbed - many greatly saddened by the news of her passing. Outside her home at her Missionaries of Charity headquarters in a poor central Calcutta neighborhood, hundreds of people were gathered in the rain as news of the death of Calcutta's most famous personality spread. Many of them were weeping. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I am very distressed and sorry to hear of the death of Mother Teresa. She was a very great person. I'm very sorry." SUPER CAPTION: Vox pop Those waiting to pay their respects recited prayers as they stood outside. Later in the morning, nuns shut the gates at the Charity as the crowds grew large, and halted public access to the chapel. This caused anger and upset in a crowd wanting to pay their last respects to Mother Teresa - nuns and police tried to calm the emotional mourners. The funeral of Mother Teresa of Calcutta will be held on Wednesday - the 51st anniversary of the day Mother Teresa received what she said was a calling from Jesus. A site has been chosen in the Missionaries of Charity's headquarters and nuns are consulting the Vatican before finalising arrangements.

English/Nat With only 169 days left before the change of sovereignty, Hong Kong held another one of the British styled ceremony to mark the beginning of its official legal year, for the last time. Although the legal system is to remain unchanged after the Chinese takeover, many fear that the current laws will not survive under Chinese rule. Judges and lawyers in traditional wigs and robes marched to the church Monday afternoon to open the last legal year under British rule in Hong Kong. In less than 6 months time, these judges and lawyers will face the same legal system, but under a different government. To them and the entire Hong Kong population of 6-point-2 (m) million, it is yet unknown whether the legal system could be fully functional under Chinese sovereignty. After July 1st, a detailed written constitution will replace the current constitution which is based on the Letters Patent and Royal Instructions originated to late 19th century models. Instead, the new constitution will be the first modern constitution written specifically just for Hong Kong and will be applied for the next 50 years. Another change will be the application of a bilingual court system to replaced the current English speaking one which is widely welcomed by the majority non-English speaking Chinese. With closer ties between Hong Kong and China, many question whether the one country two system will be feasible. SOUNDBITE (English) "That transfer is to take place in accordance with the terms of a binding treaty between the Governments of the United kingdom and of a binding treaty between the Governments of the United Kingdom and of the People's Republic of China; a treaty which we who are its objects have ultimately few, if any, means of enforcing. Even so, we must by our own efforts seek to ensure that the assurances in the Joint Declaration are realised and implemented insofar as we can and, by whatever legal means are available to us, to prevent a violation of those assurances if a violation is threatened." SUPER CAPTION: Gladys Li, chairman of the Bar Association Former Chief Justice T-L Yang resigned from the post last October to run for the post of Chief Executive, Hong Kong's first Chinese governor after its handover to China but failed in the many say China's handpicked selection precess. Deputy Chief Justice Noel Power praised the efficiency of Hong Kong's judiciary system in comparison with major cities of its size, such as London, Sydney, New York. He also assured the people of Hong Kong that the law will stand independent after the handover. SOUNDBITE (English) "Let me finally assure all of the people of Hong Kong that they have an independent, capable and hard working judiciary versed in the common law and that they have a judiciary which will, without fear or favor, administer that law in the coming years." SUPERCAPTION: Noel Power, Deputy Chief Justice However the people of Hong Kong know that there will be no guarantees of judicial independence after the handover to Beijing on June 30.

The two Chinese ships, marked as fishing boats, cut across the bow of the Philippine navy vessel Benguet on Saturday as it sailed towards the Spratlys. The boats then approached the tank landing ship from either side. Later, two Chinese warships appeared 15 nautical miles away. Philippine officials described the incident as Manila's first direct confrontation with China over the Spratlys. The 39 journalists were travelling at the invitation of the Philippines government, despite protests from Beijing.

Libya sends more than 150 migrants back to Mali
(29 Dec 2016) Dozens of Malian migrants queued outside the departure hall of Tripoli's Maetiga airport on Thursday ahead of their deportation from Libya. The Libyan Department of Anti-Illegal Immigration, with the help of the International Organisation for Migration (IOM), is sending home 157 Malian migrants due to overcrowding at Libya's detention centres. There are more plans to deport more migrants in the near future, especially now that African embassies in Tripoli are starting to cooperate with the immigration department. Libyan detention centres currently house migrants from across the continent - most notably Mali, Nigeria, Niger, Gambia and Somalia. The migrant crisis began to escalate dangerously in 2015 when high numbers of unauthorised foreign nationals attempted to travel to the European Union. According to the United Nations, the most dangerous migration route is from Libya to Italy, where the UN estimates one in every 47 refugees dies. The UN recently reported that migrants in Libya are subject to serious human rights violations and abuses.

Philippine volcano spews lava fountains, 56,000 people flee
(23 Jan 2018) The Philippines' most active volcano spewed fountains of red-hot lava and massive ash plumes on Wednesday morning in a dazzling but increasingly dangerous eruption that has sent 56,000 villagers fleeing to evacuation centres. Lava fountains gushed up 700 metres (2,300 feet) above Mount Mayon's crater and ash plumes rose up to 3 kilometres (1.9 miles) at least twice Tuesday, according to the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology. An explosive eruption at noon Monday was the most powerful since the volcano started acting up more than a week ago. Authorities warned a violent eruption may occur in hours or days, characterized by more rumblings and pyroclastic flows - superheated gas and volcanic debris that race down the slopes at high speeds, vaporizing everything in their path. At least 56,217 people were taking shelter in 46 evacuation camps Tuesday and army troops and police were helping move more villagers from their homes, officials said.

Eng/Russian/Nat Thousands of miles from the shores of the United States, a little piece of America has taken root in Russia. Four years ago Charles Edgemon left his native state of Texas and set up a model farm to teach U-S farming techniques to Russian farmers. Four years on the project is coming to an end but now Edgemon doesn't want to pull up his newly dug roots and return home. 100 kilometres from the old world charm and beauty of St Petersburg is the tiny Russian village of Volkov. In this cold and inhospitable environment, a US-government project has been quietly bringing about an agricultural revolution. Following an agreement between the U-S Department of Agriculture and the mayor of St Petersburg, Texan farmer Charles Edgemon packed his bags in 1992 and went east to set-up this model farm. The land, on the site of a former state-run farm, was provided by the Russians - the know-how by the Americans. Together with a colleague from Wisconsin, Edgemon teaches and demonstrates techniques to Russian farmers as well as growing vegetable and grain crops using Russian seeds and equipment. Russian agriculture has been in a state of collapse for several years, a situation which Edgemon believes must be rectified if Russia wants to become a real force on the world stage again. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Any country that is strong. Any country that is great has to have an agricultural base and Russia must have a strong agricultural base to be a leader in the western world." SUPERCAPTION: Charles Edgemon, U-S farmer And his hard work has already had an impact. Seven Russian farmers who have used the newly-taught methods have managed to improve their crops. The money they've earned has been spent on buying new buildings and equipment and some are in the process of constructing their own homes. The local farmers have warmed to their American neighbours, who give their produce to local children's homes, churches and other needy groups. SOUNDBITE: (Russian) "What marks out American farmers is their friendliness to other people, they seem to like everyone without exception." SUPERCAPTION: Sergei Legonkov, Russian farmer Charles' wife Lyndell also acts as an adviser on the farm. The couple have adjusted well to the life here, even developing a taste for Russian cooking. The Edgemon's contract finishes in October but the couple are looking at ways to stay on. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Russia is very close to the heart. Russia is very special to us. I would never have thought 20 years ago that I would be working in Russia and having so many Russian friends. But now it's different and we have found that Russians are just like Americans. There is no difference. We just speak a different language and have a little bit different cultural background. We're all the same." SUPERCAPTION: Charles Edgemon, U-S farmer The transition from state-run farming to privately managed agriculture has not been easy for the Edgemons' Russian protégés. They often have to overcome impassable roads, poor irrigation, blackouts and a lack of equipment and supplies. But Edgemon believes success will come even if it is only the next generation of farmers that will reap the benefit. By that time Charles and Lyndell may have returned to Texas but thanks to their efforts, in Volkov there'll always be a corner of a distant land that will be forever - America.
