Police Seek Consulate Bomb Witnesses Captured on CCTV; World at a Glance

Article excerpt

. POTENTIAL witnesses to the predawn bombing of the British consulate in New York yesterday are being asked to come forward after police began studying CCTV camera images.

Detectives are watching 17 different tapes in search of a motive and any clues to who was responsible for the blasts.

They exploded at 3.35am, forcing a chunk of concrete through the front door and shattering a panel of glass. No-one was injured.

Police commissioner Ray Kelly said although they had found no footage of an actual perpetrator, a handful of potential eyewitnesses were filmed near the scene. He appealed to them to come forward.

Robson, 22, a former child dance prodigy, said Jackson had never touched him in a sexual way, while Barnes, 23, flatly rejected any suggestion of inappropriate behavior by the entertainer, adding: "If he had I wouldn't be here right now."

The defence case is likely to last several weeks, with celebrity witnesses such as Macaulay Culkin and Diana Ross giving evidence.
