Monday, 20 July 2009 London Lite World at a glance ObamacondemnsYouTube videoofTalibansUScaptive BARACK OBAMA was today set to condemn a humiliating video showing a US soldier captured in Afghanistan effectively pleading for his life. The US President was expected to speak out at a White House reception to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the moon landings. The 28-minute video, posted on YouTube, shows Private Bowe Bergdahl, 23, being prompted by his captors to call for US forces to be withdrawn from Afghanistan. He also says he is scared he will not be able to go home. Pentagon top brass led the furious reaction to the video. We condemn the use of this video and the public humiliation of prisoners. It is against international law, said U.S. military spokesman Colonel Greg Julian. White House officials said Mr Obama was appalled by the propaganda video and has ordered forces in the region to do whatever is necessary to secure the safe return of Private Bergdahl, who was captured when he fell behind during a patrol.

Officials deathby drinking Jackson brothers say doc panickedBy GeorGina LittLejohn Picture of the day TWO of Michael Jacksons brothers have spoken of their concern over the minutes leading up to his death -- and criticised the personal doctor who tried to save him. Tito and Jermaine Jackson both said they had worries about Conrad Murray, who attempted to resusci- tate the 50-year-old pop star after he suffered a cardiac arrest at his Los Angeles home. LA Police and the US Drug Enforcement Agency have not ruled out a murder probe. Jermaine, 54, told The Sun: The first time I m e t D r Murray was at the hospital. I felt that if he was a doctor, why was Michael dead? Tito, 55, told a Spanish TV station: My opinion is that he panicked when my brother didnt wake up. I believe that if he had immediately called for help we might still have Michael here today. Dr Murray is under 24-hour guard amid fears he may be attacked by Jackson fans. A friend said: He did all he could to resuscitate Michael. He is in a terrible situation.Doubt: Tito and Jermaine, far right LonDon eye: PaGe 11 index.html2.html3.html4.html5.html6.html7.html8.html9.html10.html11.html12.html13.html14.html15.html16.html17.html18.html19.html20.html21.html22.html23.html24.html25.html26.html27.html28.html29.html30.html31.html32.html33.html34.html35.html36.html37.html38.html39.html
