STORYLINE:

Bloody clashes between protesters and police marred bicentennial celebrations on Haiti's 200th anniversary of independence on Thursday as embattled President Jean-Bertrand Aristide faced growing unrest in his shattered country.

After a ceremony attended by over 10-thousand supporters of the beleaguered President Jean-Bertrand Aristide ended, anti-government protesters -- with students, business people and local music stars in their ranks -- began marches from various points in the capital.

Police broke up the marches using teargas and by firing their guns into the air.

North of the capital in Gonaives, Haiti's "City of Independence," Aristide and other officials held a brief ceremony to a crowd of bussed-in supporters.

The event was held in the city's main square which was blocked off from the rest of the city by walls made from containers.

Gonaives has been the scene of anti-government protests for the past three months, as an armed formerly pro-government gang turned on the president and began a serious of sometimes violent demonstrations.

Police have retaliated with repeated raids, killing at least 30 mostly innocent bystanders over the past three months, but they still do not control the poor seaside slum of Raboteau whose residents vowed to fight to the death in their quest to force Aristide to resign before his five-year term is over.

Police patrolled the city before the arrival of officials and guests who came by airplane and helicopter. During his brief speech, Aristide stressed that he will serve out his term.

Local priests refused to say mass as the government requested and locked the doors of the cathedral. A week ago, most of the priests of the Artibonite region, including in the city of Gonaives, asked the president to step down.

As the official convoy and police were leaving Gonaives, they were fired on by unknown gunmen and their cars hit with rocks.

STORYLINE:

Thousands of anti-government demonstrators pushed into the Thai prime minister's office compound on Tuesday and tens of thousands rallied outside in the latest protest aimed at deposing a prime minister they accuse of close ties to his disgraced predecessor.

The People's Alliance for Democracy, which is aligned with conservative factions of the monarchy and the military, said the protests and the seizure of a state-run television station by a masked faction of the crowd were a "final showdown" in its efforts to oust the government.

The group has been protesting sporadically across the capital, Bangkok, since May to demand the resignation of Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej.

They contend he is a proxy for former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, who was ousted in a 2006 coup and is living in self-imposed exile in England.

Protesters scaled fences and helped push each other over to gain entry to Samak's compound, called Government House, and they encamped in a huge garden outside the prime minister's office.

The protesters remained peaceful and did not try to enter any government buildings.

Up to 30-thousand protested outside four government ministries and Government House, according to deputy police spokesman Maj. Gen. Surapol

Tuanthong.

Some carried placards that said: "The Evil Government, Get out Now." It had a photo of Samak with a red 'X' through it. Police monitored the rallies but did not intervene. It appeared the protesters planned to remain in the prime minister's compound indefinitely.

Most of the protesters wore yellow shirts, which were promoted in 2006 as a way of showing loyalty to King Bhumibol Adulyadej on the 50th anniversary of his enthronement.

After keeping silent for most of the day, Samak held a news conference at which he stated that the government would not use force to eject the protesters, but was preparing legal action against them.

"No force of any kind, no suppression of any kind. It's my order to him (the police commander) 'soft and gentle'. Ask them (protesters) to come out (of the government premises), no weapons," he said.

The prime minister said he had no intention of resigning and accused the protest alliance of trying to provoke bloodshed that would spark a coup to oust his government.

"They want bloodshed in the country. They want the military to come out and stage a coup again," Samak said.

But he refused to declare a state of emergency and said the authorities would surround the protesters encamped at his office, letting people leave but not allowing any new protesters to enter.

Still, thousands were encamped Tuesday night, when a relaxed, even festive, atmosphere prevailed.

Many enjoyed picnic dinners with their families outside the building that houses the prime minister's offices.

The prime minister accused the protest alliance of trying to provoke bloodshed that would spark a coup to oust his government, but he refused to declare a state of emergency.

Authorities set a 6 p.m. (7 a.m. EDT) deadline for protesters to leave and it passed. But police said that was set simply to allow authorities to launch legal action against the occupiers if they overstayed.

The day began with a violent, pre-dawn raid by about 80 masked alliance members on the main studios of the government-run National

Broadcasting Services of Thailand, known as NBT.

The protesters claim the station is a government mouthpiece.

NBT footage of the incursion showed the attackers, armed with clubs and iron rods, herding staff out of the building and smashing property.

The invaders prevented the station from broadcasting for about an hour, after which police officers arrested them. Samak said police were holding them pending charges.

Samak moved Tuesday's weekly Cabinet meeting from Government House to the military's headquarters elsewhere in Bangkok to avoid

the protesters, a government spokesman said.

Israeli police blocked hundreds of Israeli peace activists from reaching the West Bank city of Hebron on Sunday, arresting at least 20 Peace Now members.

Five policemen were slightly wounded in scuffles with the protesters.

Jewish settlers in Hebron, with government ministers and officials, were holding a special Passover celebration, larger than usual because Israel celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.

Some 500 settlers live in Hebron, surrounded by 120,000 Palestinians.

But a few hours later, police let the protesters through as far as the entrance to the city.

Confrontation on Sunday at the Gush Etzion Junction, on the highway north of the West Bank city of Hebron.

Israeli police had stopped hundreds of Israeli peace activists from reaching Hebron itself.

After the group was stopped on the highway demonstrators spilled out of the buses and into the road, chanting "Peace yes, Occupation No."

Their banners read "Settlements in Hebron - a stain on Zionism" and "50th celebrations in Hebron - a disgrace for Israel."

Five hundred Jewish settlers live in the city -- totally outnumbered by its population of 120,000 Palestinians.

Some protesters linked arms and lay down in the road, blocking traffic and chanting.

They were pulled away by police.

Israeli Knesset (Parliament) member Renan Cohen, who was involved in the scuffles, said that the Jewish settlers were as much the enemies of peace as Islamic extremists.

SOUNDBITE: (English)

"They are the enemy for the peace process as the Hamas and the Islamic Jihad are the enemies of the process, they do everything in provocation to prevent the peace process and we would like to call our opinion there in the front of Hebron today."

SUPER CAPTION: Renan Cohen, member of Israeli Knesset

Some 21 peace activists were arrested for holding an illegal demonstration and disturbing the peace.

Five policemen were slightly wounded.

And, after several hours, police agreed to let the Peace Now protesters go through to the entrance of Hebron.

STORYLINE:

Protesters faced off with riot police in the closest mainland city to the G-8 summit on Thursday, but the confrontations ended without violence or arrests.

Around twenty people marched through historic downtown Savannah as several shouted at a line of 35 riot officers carrying shields and batons.

A march in Brunswick, which included close to 200 protesters, led to some minor shoving between officers in patrol uniforms and some of the marchers on the only mainland road that eventually leads to Sea Island, the summit site.

There were no reported injuries.

They were the most intense demonstrations, and the first ones drawing officers in riot gear, since the Group of Eight summit began on Tuesday.

STORYLINE:

Police fired tear gas and bullets to disperse protesters in several Kenyan cities on Wednesday at the start of three days of opposition rallies that threatened to plunge the nation's streets back into post-election violence.

Opposition leader Raila Odinga, whose supporters believe he was robbed of the presidency through vote rigging in last month's election, called the protests in 42 locations nationwide, despite a government ban.

Odinga vowed he would lead the march himself on Nairobi's Uhuru Park in the city centre, which is ringed by riot police and shadowed by skyscrapers.

In Nairobi's Kibera and Mathare slums, police fired tear gas and bullets to disperse hundreds of young men and opposition party ODM (Orange Democratic Movement) supporters.

An opposition parliament member said police wounded three protesters in Kibera.

The opposition was bolstered on Tuesday by the election of their candidate for parliament speaker, but Odinga's supporters promised to continue protesting until President Mwai Kibaki and his government acknowledge that his re-election was flawed.

A national police spokesman said turnout for the rallies was low nationwide and people were getting tired. He had no word on casualties.

In the western town of Kisumu, about 1,000 rowdy young men were on the streets carrying a coffin with Kibaki's name on it.

"What we want is negotiation. Even dialogue we don't need no dialogue," said Eric Anyango, a demonstrator.

Protesters threw rocks at police who let loose volleys of rifle-fire into the air. One bloodied demonstrator was wounded, though it was not clear how.

One Kisumu protester said he saw the body of one man, apparently shot in the head lying on the ground near three other wounded men who had been shot in the chest.

Foreign and local election observers have said the vote count in the December 27 presidential election was deeply flawed.

And although the electoral chief pronounced Kibaki the victor, he later said he had been pressured to release the results and did not know who won.

The post-election violence, in which more than 600 people have been killed and a quarter of a (m) million displaced, has marred Kenya's image as a stable democratic oasis in a war-ravaged region and damaged its tourist-dependent economy.

It has also aggravated long-simmering ethnic tensions and ethnic conflicts over land ownership.

Tahiti's intl airport has been closed after a day of running battles between stone-wielding demonstrators and police. What started as a peaceful anti-nuclear protetest by Tahiti's indep. party and its supporters turned into a full-blown riot. Police firing tear-gas clashed with the crowd of between -500 & 1000 - both on the runway and in the airport terminal and car parks. One section of the terminal building has been destroyed by fire dozens of cars were wrecked and set on fire in the rampage.

It should have been the end of a holiday in paradise but for passengers trying to fly out to LA Paris and NZ it turned into a day in hell. As a thick plume of smoke hung over Tahiti's airport staff desperately tried to get passengers off flights and to safety.

The crowd had already set fire to part of the terminal missiles were raining in from every direction. The airport fire brigade was called in both to douse the demonstrators and quell the flames. At one point demonstrators hijacked a tractor and rammed it through the front of the airport. Tables and chairs were hurled - inevitably injuries resulted. This passenger, bloodies in the cross-fire, protest leaders claim four of their people have been hurt. Police say two of their men are seriously injured in the mayhem.

As the airport cafe was smashed up and its shelves looted, masked demonstrators ominously threatened to single out French people.

International anti-nuclear protesters trying to leave after protesting yesterday's blast were caught up in the trouble.

SOUNDBITE:

"I think it's very heavy - a great over-reaction, these people came here to peacefully demonstrate, I saw their marchers there were women with them and they had flowers and they had banners saying "We are striking, we're just going to blockade the airport peacefully".

SUPER CAPTION: Nula Ahearn - Irish Euro MP

By the hour more demonstrators were arriving armed with rocks. Police in riot vehicles returning their fire with tear gas. Buildings and property all round the airport were smashed up and vehicles were set on fire and overturned.

The inside of part of the terminal building was blackened by the flames. Outside as fires burnt all over the main concourse and car parks police backed up firemen trying to douse the flames.

But the running battles continued ebbing and flowing between demonstrators and police enjoying the upper hand. Many superficial injuries occurred and at one point police turned on journalists. This female television producer involved in a furious argument with riot police. Late this afternoon late plumes of smoke can be seen hanging over the airport area in Papeete though the airport itself is now calmer.

STORYLINE:

About a thousand anti-globalisation protesters marched the streets of Busan on Saturday to express their displeasure with US President George W. Bush and policies of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in South Korea.

The demonstrators were protesting against the Iraq war, the US stationing troops in Asia and against the potential trade deals that would affect domestic industries particularly agricultural free trade policies.

Protestors attempted to march towards the meeting venue, but were blocked by security forces and dispersed peacefully after several hours.

On Friday, police clashed with activists from a crowd of about four-thousand protesters outside the leaders' meeting.

Hundreds of riot police were deployed to the area. They were backed up by water cannons and other heavy machinery.

But buses were set out to block the road to avoid a confrontation between police and protestors.

Busan University has been the epicentre of the protest movement during APEC.

But the demonstration ranks have been filled out by farmers and young professionals as well.

32-thousand US soldiers are deployed in South Korea, mostly as a deterrent to an attack from North Korea.

The Korean War ended in the 1950s but a peace treaty has never been signed.

And three-thousand South Korean troops are in Iraq, working with US forces to provide security there.

"As much as there is sorrow, there is also a sense that perhaps this will be an opportunity for all of us, who like Benazir have spent their lives fighting against dictatorship.

STORYLINE:

Hundreds of protesters marched through the street of the southwestern Pakistani city of Quetta on Sunday to voice their anger at the slaying of opposition leader Benazir Bhutto.

Some six hundred demonstrators, mostly supporters of Bhutto's Pakistan People's Party, chanted slogans against the government and against President Pervez Musharraf.

In Karachi, meanwhile, police fired tear gas into a crowd staging a protest rally and arrested supporters of the slain opposition leader.

Elsewhere in the city, people gathered at Bhutto's house to read the Holy Quran and say prayers.

And in Rawalpindi, about 50 people gathered to lit candles and scatter rose petals at the scene of the suicide attack that killed the former prime minister.

Also in Rawalpindi, police arrested a number of people for setting fire to tyres in the streets.

AP Television footage showed a police officer using a stick to hit one of the men.

At least four arrests where made, according to an AP reporter at the scene.

In the capital, Islamabad, mourners held a candlelight vigil outside the headquarters of Bhutto's political party.

The protesters cried and decorated a shrine to the slain leader with flowers.

AP Television footage showed one man overcome with grief over the death of the former prime minister.

"I'm very sad. I'm very angry as well. I'm very angry at the government, I'm very angry with the way they've dealt with it, I'm very angry with the lies that they're telling at this time," said Asha Amirali, an attendant of the vigil.

Aasim Sajjad, a fellow mourner, expressed hope that Bhutto's death would present an opportunity to her party.

"Maybe this will be the catalyst to bring us all together and help us achieve what it is she struggled (all her) life for," he said.

Bhutto's slaying last Thursday plunged the nuclear-armed country into a political crisis and triggered nationwide riots that left at least 44 people dead ahead of the parliamentary polls, seen by the West as key to promoting stability in the country.

STORYLINE:

Thousands of protesters gathered in Germany on Wednesday ahead of the start of the Group of Eight (G-8) summit, blocking a road which led to a stand off with police.

Earlier the demonstrators, carrying banners, and dressed in costumes, played instruments through the area of Bad Doberan towards Heiligendamm.

The protesters then spread out through a field before crossing a railway track. They were stopped by police on a nearby road, leading to a stand off with the demonstrators.

The meeting of the Group of Eight industrialised nations, to be held in the picturesque vacation town of Heiligendamm on the Baltic coast, has already been the subject of violent protests.

Protesters are being held at bay from Heiligendamm by a 2.5-metre-high, 12-kilometre-long, razor-wire-topped fence.

Despite that deterrent, the area was rocked over the weekend by violent demonstrations that were Germany's worst in decades as anti-globalisation protesters hurled rocks and bottles at police.

Bracing for what is likely to be a contentious round of talks aimed at combating climate change, and for a chiding from aid groups over previous pledges to relieve African poverty, leaders of the G-8 nations were heading to Germany for their annual summit starting on Wednesday.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel will lead the discussions with leaders of Britain, France, Japan, Italy, Russia, Canada and the United States.

US President George W. Bush is to meet on Wednesday - before the summit begins - with Merkel, who has insisted she would like to reach agreement with the other seven G-8 leaders on having the United Nations oversee the establishment of a future pact on curbing global warming.

The major source of diplomatic tension at the G-8 meeting is likely to be the US proposal to place elements of a missile defence system in the former Soviet satellite countries of Poland and the Czech Republic.

The G-8 includes Russian President Vladimir Putin and Bush.

Russia and the United States have been sparring over the proposal.

Washington says the plan is aimed at intercepting possible missile strikes from rogue states such as Iran and North Korea, but Russia says such attacks are virtually impossible and claims the proposed system is aimed at weakening Russia's missile capabilities.
