Powell goes disco for Asean forum

US Secretary of State Colin Powell has wowed fellow foreign ministers at an Asean security meeting, with a rousing rendition of a disco classic.
Mr Powell donned a hard hat and stuffed a hammer in his belt for the Village People’s YMCA, a massive 1970s hit.
He was backed by five US officials, all imitating the gaily flamboyant outfits of the original band.
Ministers regularly give their own take on classic tunes at the after-dinner show, a highlight of the annual forum.
Mr Powell and his colleagues – in costumes including those of a policeman and a native American – were happy to wind down from a hard day discussing security issues.
