The unauthorised images show the executioners mocking the former dictator

just moments before his death

sparking outrage among his supporters. Three days after his execution there's still a huge desire for Sunnis here to pay their respects in person to Saddam Hussein. Thousands have travelled miles to the funeral home in the town of his birth to say farewell and mourn a man who so zealously defended their interests. But while there's sadness here, there's a rising tide of anger too. Saddam's humiliating last moments captured on a cell phone have horrified his followers who now see him as a victim of sectarian lynching. The grainy, unauthorised video shows an undignified end. As he approaches the gallows, a guard taunts Saddam. He's chanting the name of his enemy, Shia leader Moqtada al-Sadr. Another shout "You're going to hell". Seconds later, the trapped door opens. Millions have seen the video posted on the internet

posted on the Internet and the anger it's caused is a terrible blow for government and Sunni-Shia relations.

But a senior prosecutor who observed the execution claims one of those taking pictures was a government official. TRANSLATOR: I was watching carefully. There were two people with phones inside the room. They were filming openly. The claim that a member of the government for taking the pictures, may have been responsible for taking the pictures will enrage Saddam's followers. Some have already vowed they'll avenge his death. Former US president Gerald Ford has been remembered as a "rock of stability" who helped restore trust in democracy. America's political elite gathered in Washington to farewell the nation's 38th president. It has been a long week for the Ford family with personal greetings to mourners and many services but this is the respect they wanted to return to so many who came out

to say a personal goodbye. A solemn tribute and final goodbye at the Washington National Cathedral to a husband of 58 years, a father, friend and president of the United States. On behalf of a grateful nation, we bid farewell to our 38th president.

We thank the Almighty for Gerald Ford's life and we ask for God's blessings for Gerald Ford and his family. It was in 1974 that Gerald Ford stepped in as President right after the Watergate scandal, he took a chance doing what he thought was right in pardoning former president Richard Nixon. It was a time of great divide but he brought the country back together. Gerry Ford's decency

was the ideal remedy for the deception of Watergate.

The body of the late president arrived here with military honours.

Ford was a navy lieutenant commander before entering into politics. It's been said that the office of the presidency wasn't even the job he had his eye on. It was actually speaker of the house, but that wasn't to be. He was elected minority leader and for that, he was honoured earlier in the day as his flag-draped coffin was brought down the east capital's steps. Today's ceremonies marked the end of four days full of tribute in the nation's capital. There was not a lot of pomp of circumstance but it was just as the nation's 38th president had wished. This memorial service was the final goodbye in Washington, the city Ford left over 30 years ago. From here, the family and close friends will fly to Michigan the place that all began for the former president

which will be his final resting place. Oprah Winfrey has delivered a $50 million gift to disadvantaged African children. The talk show host opened a school she built for poor but talented girls. I know what it is like to be abused, sexually abused, physically abused, to be confused, that nobody cares about you, to believe that you don't have a chance in the world, and then to have that all turned around for you. Oprah says she decided to build the academy in South Africa out of love and respect for Nelson Mandela and because of her own African roots. It's that time of the year when many of us are trying to stick to New Year resolutions to lose weight. Now a researcher in the United States has found there's more to dieting than simply willpower.

Why do we eat when we're not hungry? MAN: We're really a nation of mindless eaters. Professor Brian Wansink is taking a scientific approach to that question. His lab at Cornell University often looks more like a restaurant. His theory is this -

we eat with our eyes more than our stomachs. Yeah? You like lasagne? There's all these cues around us that are suggesting how much to eat and what to eat, and, at the end of the day, we've been, essentially, directed by these cues, not necessarily by our own thoughtfulness. In this test, subjects think they're trying a new kind of pasta. They fill their plates, but, after a mishap... (Man coughs)

I need a... That's gross. I'm sorry. ..they serve themselves again. They don't know it, but this time they're given a slightly larger plate. We've done this dozens and dozens of times. People end up serving about 25% more on these bigger plates. Wansink estimates we make 200-plus food choices every day. Most of them are influenced by factors we don't even notice, like the size of the serving dish or the distance back to the kitchen for a refill. In one experiment, It's not only variety that leads people to eat more, it's also simply the perception that there's a lot of variety. And who you sit by can be just as important as what you eat.

One way you can do is just change the pacing. You can key in on the person who's starting last and start after they do.

You key in on the person who's eating slowest and you eat at their speed, not the speed of the person who's the speediest. People think willpower is the key to conquering mindless eating. Wansink's research finds self-control is only part of the puzzle. The biggest mistake people make

is to believe that they are the master and commander of all their food decisions and not realise that a lot of what's tricking them are the barriers and the traps they set up for themselves.

Britney Spears's manager is denying reports the pop princess passed out on New Year's Eve. Spears led the countdown at a Las Vegas party. She had a little bit too much to drink The 25-year-old smiled and waved to fans as she drank and danced. Witnesses claim she collapsed at around 1:00am.

and people say that she may have passed out. Her manager says Britney didn't pass out, claiming the overtired mother of two merely fell asleep.
