Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich said he invited all parties, including the opposition, for talks to find a political compromise to a growing political crisis.
In a statement on his website, Yanukovich said the opposition should not refuse and should "not go down the road of confrontation and ultimatums". EU and US officials had demanded he launch a dialogue with all parties after more than two weeks of protests in central Kiev.
The mystery of a man who was reportedly gesticulating gibberish during the memorial to Nelson Mandela has deepened as no authorities connected with the event claim they do not to know who he is.
The government, which was officially in charge of the ceremony said it had tried and failed to get to the bottom of the matter:
"Government is looking in to this matter but has not been able to conclude this inquiry due to the demanding schedule of organising events," Presidency Minister Collins Chabane told a news conference.
Jacob Zuma's spokesman Mac Maharaj said he was checking the reports, while the SABC state broadcaster, which covered the memorial, said it was not involved as it had its own on-screen signers.
The ruling African National Congress (ANC) also professed no knowledge, even though several television clips from a big party meeting a year ago showed the same man gesticulating on stage alongside Zuma.
"I don't know this guy. He doesn't work for the ANC. It was a government event. Ask them," spokesman Jackson Mthembu said.
A police call-handler would go onto work and "habitually" monitor events in the area, looking for information to feed back to her boyfriend during the manhunt for Dale Cregan, a court has heard.
Kathryn Smith, 25, is accused of looking at information that she was not supposed to access which she then passed onto her boyfriend Sean Booth and Anita Cregan.
The jury were shown screen-shots of Smith's computer use on the evening of September 4 last year, allegedly showing how she viewed details of a call taken by police giving details of a possible sighting of Cregan on Manchester Road in Droylsden.
She allegedly used her computer to look up the exact locations of all the officers and police cars and vans in the area, and accessed maps showing armed response patrols in the vicinity.
Prosecutor Nicholas Clarke QC told Manchester Crown Court: "She concentrated on the high level of police activity surrounding the manhunt for Dale Cregan and the Sutton Drive area where his family reside. Smith's role does not permit her to act this way."
Smith, Booth and Cregan all deny the offence.
– Delphin Hlungwane, an official sign language interpreter at DeafSA
He was basically gesturing. He didn't follow any of the grammatical rules and structure of the language. He just invented his signs as he went along.
There was zero percent accuracy. He couldn't even get the basics right. He couldn't even say 'thank you'.
Hlungwane said the interpreter also failed to impart to television viewers - as he should have done - that the crowd gave a hostile reception to Jacob Zuma.
"You're supposed to indicate with your facial expressions, even if it's not an exact sign," she said. "He didn't indicate that at all. It just passed him by."
