The Swiss marine explorer and inventor, Jacques Piccard, has died at his home on the edge of Lake Geneva at the age of 86. In 1960, Piccard and his co-pilot took a submersible vessel developed by his father to the bottom of the Mariana Trench in the western Pacific. Their 11km descent beneath the surface of the sea remains the deepest ever carried out. Paul Legg reports.

 

The historic dive attracted worldwide attention and some controversy among marine biologists who disputed Piccard’s claims to have observed flat fish and a new type of shrimp at the bottom of the ocean. In his later years, Piccard became an outspoken critic of marine pollution and over-fishing. He only retired from deep sea diving four years ago at the age of 82.

The French and British Foreign Ministers Bernard Kouchner and David Miliband are in the Rwandan capital Kigali on the second leg of their diplomatic mission to try to find a way to end the violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Thousands of civilians have been displaced by rebel advance on the eastern town of Goma near the Rwandan border and are living in desperate conditions. Congo accuses Rwanda of backing the rebels. After talks in Kinshasa on Saturday with the Congolese President, Mr. Miliband said there was a pressing need for emergency relief to reach camps for people displaced by the conflict with the establishment of a safe humanitarian corridor to Goma a priority. He added that the contingent of 800 UN peacekeepers currently in the city needed to be reinforced. The Under-Secretary-General of the UN responsible for peacekeeping operations Alain Le Roy agreed the UN force in Congo, MONUC (联合国驻刚果()特派团) needs more troops.

MONUC has 16,000 troops, almost the figure that's they need to have in Kosovo and you should know that Congo is 200 times bigger than Kosovo, and our troops are clearly overstretched. We are in the process of reconfiguring the mission, but we / still consider we need additional force.


The former Prime Minister of Thailand, Thaksin Shinawatra, has been addressing tens of thousands of his supporters who gathered at a stadium in the capital Bangkok. Speaking by telephone from his self-imposed exile, Mr.Thaksin greeted them as people who love democracy and regretted he could not be there in person. There was tight security in Bangkok for the rally which aimed to counter months of demonstrations by opponents of the government, who say it’s unduly influenced by Mr. Thaksin. He was sentenced to jail in his absence for abuse of power, but still enjoys significant backing, particularly in rural Thailand.
