Micheal Jackson’s Final Farewell

اسٹینڈرڈ

Michael Jackson’s family and about 200 of their closest friends gathered on a hill Thursday evening for their final farewell to the pop singer, who died 10 weeks ago.

Jackson’s burial may lay to rest some of the mystery and controversy that erupted with his sudden death on June 25.

His large family was divided over where the superstar’s final resting place should be, but matriarch Katherine Jackson settled on a crypt inside the well-guarded and ornate Great Mausoleum at Forest Lawn cemetery in Glendale, California.

Thursday’s service began 90 minutes past the announced start time, leaving dozens of celebrities — including Elizabeth Taylor — waiting in their seats for the 26 cars carrying the Jackson clan to arrive. (Source: CNN)

SC gives govt one week to reduce POL prices

A three-member bench of the Supreme Court (SC) on Wednesday directed the government to reduce petroleum and gas prices to reasonable levels within a week and submit compliance report with the SC registrar.

Appearing on notice, Attorney General Sardar Latif Khosa assured the court that oil and gas prices would be reduced within a week and brought in line with international rates after consultations with the prime minister. The SC was hearing constitutional petitions against the hike in petroleum prices and overcharging by the government on petroleum products. Two petitions from politicians had also challenged the price-fixing mechanism of POL prices.
