Five years since the King of Pop died

Michael Jackson fans laid flowers at the mausoleum where the pop icon is interred to mark the fifth anniversary of his death. Around 100 fans, some dressed as the King of Pop, gathered on Wednesday at the Forest Lawn cemetery outside Los Angeles, where the 50-year-old died while rehearsing for a comeback tour. Jackson died on June 25, 2009 of an overdose of the clinical anesthetic propofol, administered by his doctor to help treat insomnia as the singer prepared for “This is It” shows in London. His personal medic Conrad Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2011 and released in October after two years. — AFP
