The sale of sacred Native American objects went ahead in Paris Monday despite objections from Arizona tribes and the U.S. embassy in France. Over 20 sacred effigies, called Kachina dolls, from the Hopi and the neighboring Zuni tribe of New Mexico were included in the sale, as well as items from Arizona's San Carlos Apache tribe. The masks date from the 19th and early 20th centuries and are viewed by the Native American Hopi tribe as representatives of messengers to the gods, and the spirits of ancestors and natural forces. The Native American tribes want the sale suspended because of the masks' cultural and religious significance, but a French judge dismissed their legal challenge last week. (SOUNDBITE) PIERRE SERVAN-SCHREIBER, LAWYER FOR HOPI TRIBE, SAYING: "After having massacred them two centuries ago, after having parked them in reservations one century ago, after having pretty much deprived them of the right to work normally last century, you now deprive th

At the African National Congress in Johannesburg, a condolence book is running out of pages.

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel meets Pakistan's Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Army Chief Raheel Sharif in Islamabad, to discuss security and the use of U.S. drones against militants in remote areas. "The General and I had a very good and productive meeting. We talked about many of our mutual common interests and the things that are important to both sides. And how we very much look forward to working together and strengthening our relationship," Hagel said. The United States has long had a complicated relationship with Pakistan and ties have been further soured by a dispute over U.S. drones targeting militants. Islamabad says such strikes kill too many civilians and violate its sovereignty. A senior U.S. defense official said Hagel hoped to work with Pakistan to deepen the security partnership.
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. President Barack Obama embarked on a three-day trip on Monday (December 9) with former President George W. Bush, leading a U.S. contingent to attend a memorial service in South Africa for the late Nelson Mandela. On board Air Force One for a flight estimated at 16 hours were Obama and his wife, Michelle; Bush and his wife, Laura; and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Flying separately to Johannesburg were former Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter. The only surviving former president not traveling was Bush's father, George H.W. Bush, who is 89 and had a health scare year ago. The rare gathering of American presidents is a sign of the respect Mandela - who died on Thursday (December 5) at age 95 - has held among both political parties in the United States. They will join more than 70 leaders from around the world for a ceremony at Johannesburg's Soccer City stadium.
