DISTINGUISHED VISITORS
Nguyen Tan Dung: Prime Minister of Vietnam.

DIED
Madhav Vittal Kamath: Veteran journalist and former chairman of Prasar Bharati, he died on 8

Michael Sata: President of Zambia. Nicknamed “King Cobra” for his sharp tongue and manner, he was elected in 2011 to preside over his landlocked, southern African nation of 15 million people. It was a triumphant post for a man who rose from sweeping London railway stations, through to being a policeman and trade unionist. Vice-President Guy Scott, 70, was named interim leader—making him the first white president of an African nation since FW de Klerk ruled apartheid South Africa more than 20 years ago.
