Ivory Coast village to mourn King of Pop

An Ivory Coast village visited by Michael Jackson in 1992 will mourn the death of the superstar in a series of special events organisers expect to attract up to a million people.

The tribute events, including traditional dance displays, a film show and reminiscences of his visit, would be held at southeastern Krindjabo village from July 31 to August 2, president of the organising committee Olivier Kattie told reporters in Abidjan.

Kattie said he expected “nearly a million people” to travel to the village to take part. The programme had a budget of around 61,000 euros (86,000 dollars), he said.
