STORYLINE

US President George W Bush let loose to African tribal music on Wednesday during the first ever Malaria Awareness Day at the White House.

Bush danced alongside tribal music performers on stage on the south lawn of the White House, and tried playing one of the performer's drums.

Bush has made combating malaria one of his global health priorities.

"With the support of our malaria initiative, local residents launched a campaign called 'Kata Malaria,' which is Swahili for 'Reject Malaria,'" Bush said.

"Workers went door to door to teach people how to use bed nets," he added.

The event at the White House came as Africa marked its annual anti-malaria day on Wednesday with new hope that political will, a cash boost and better treatment and prevention methods may finally overcome one of the continent's biggest killers.

Poverty, faltering health systems and drug resistance have contributed to the rise of malaria infections over the last 30 years to between 350 (m) million and 500 (m) million cases a year.

In some sub-Saharan countries malaria accounts for up to half of hospital admissions.

Bush also praised the work being done by World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz in curtailing the spread of malaria world wide.

"Thank you for your leadership of the World Bank," Bush said.

Wolfowitz has come under international scrutiny over allegations that he showed favouritism in arranging a promotion and pay package for his girlfriend.

2. Wide of table

STORYLINE:

US President George W. Bush expressed his apparent frustration with the situation in the Middle East by using an expletive in comments to British Prime Minister Tony Blair on Monday.

Not realising his remarks were being picked up by a microphone at a G8 summit of world leaders in Russia, Bush bluntly expressed his frustration with the actions of Hezbollah.

"See, the irony is what they really need to do is to get Syria to get Hezbollah to stop doing this s***, and it's over," Bush told Blair in a discussion before the Group of Eight leaders began their lunch.

Bush's remarks were picked up by the summit's closed-circuit television, which was filming the leaders sitting down to eat.

Normally, the images are transmitted with sound that does not allow reporters to pick out individual comments.

But in this case a microphone picked up Bush's comments to Blair.

Blair, whose remarks were not as clearly heard, appeared to be pressing Bush about the importance of getting international peacekeepers into the region.

SHOTLIST

1. US President George W. Bush walking to podium

2. SOUNDBITE: (English) George W. Bush, US President:

"And I know the decision to call for an immediate withdrawal of our troops by (Democrat) Congressman (John) Murtha was done in a careful and thoughtful way. I disagree with his position. An immediate withdrawal of our troops from Iraq will only strengthen the terrorists' hand in Iraq, and in the broader war on terror. That's the goal of the enemy. They want to break our will in Iraq, so that we leave and they can turn Iraq into what Afghanistan was under the Taliban, a safe haven for terror, a place where they can plot and plan attacks against America and freedom-loving countries around the world."

3. Pan from reporters to President Bush

4. SOUNDBITE: (English) George W. Bush, US President:

"Well, they go hand-in-hand. A society which recognises religious freedom is a society which will recognise political freedoms, as well. China has undergone an amazing transformation in its economy. It's a much freer economy than any time in its past. And as a result, the people are becoming more prosperous. I've always believed that a free economy will yield a freer political system. I think about South Korea. South Korea opened its economy up and then political reforms followed. And part of a system which recognises the right of people to express themselves is a system which also recognises the right of people to worship freely. And in my discussions with the leadership in China, of course, I talked about both, political and religious freedom."

5. Wide view as reporter asks question

6. SOUNDBITE: (English) George W. Bush, US President:

"Well, I'm not surprised that people are talking about Iraq. Iraq is a vital issue for the United States of America. And it's... we're at war, and people, of course, have got strong opinions about war. On the trip here, by the way, I was most pleased that many of the leaders at the APEC (Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum) conference understood the stakes in Iraq, that a democracy in the heart of the Middle East will make the entire world more peaceful."

7. Pan, as President Bush tries to leave the room cannot open door and has to walk to back of room

STORYLINE

The political rancor in Washington over the Iraq war continued to shadow the Asian trip of United States President George W. Bush on Sunday, as he was holding his last press conference in Beijing.

Bush's two-day China stop - his third as president to the communist giant - was the centrepiece of a week-long Asia tour, but an acrid debate at home about the war in Iraq has followed him.

Congressman John Murtha, a Democrat who is a decorated Marine Corps veteran of the Vietnam War, last week urged the withdrawal of all US troops within six months because the U.S. cannot accomplish anything further militarily.

His statement touched off a bitter debate between Republicans and Democrats.

President Bush said that while Murtha's call for an immediate withdrawal was done in thoughtful way, but Bush said he disagreed with his position.

While overseas, the White House has not let a day go by without a no-holds-barred verbal counterattack against Democratic critics of the president's war policies.

But Bush appeared determined Sunday to scale back the rhetoric.

Appearing before reporters at his hotel before he attended a lavish dinner with his Chinese hosts, Bush rejected the notion that it is unpatriotic to disagree with him.

President Bush on Sunday also pushed for the Chinese leadership to expand religious, political and social freedoms and won renewed promises - but no concrete actions - from President Hu Jintao to open China's huge markets to U.S. farmers and businesses.

No questions from the press were permitted during the joint appearance by Bush and Hu, so the US president's give-and-take with reporters on his own was scheduled later in part to make a point about press freedom.

Bush said pressing for religious freedom was a good way to ensure that other freedoms follow.

He said: "They go hand in hand. A society which recognises religious freedoms a society which will recognise political freedom as well. President Hu is a thoughtful fellow, and he listened to what I had to say."

The president's visit had also more relaxed moments.

After the meetings with Hu and Premier Wen Jiabao, Bush went for a vigorous hour-long mountain bike ride with six young men and women vying for spots on China's Olympic mountain biking team.
