German professor Gunther von Hagens poses for photographs before his
planned public autopsy in London, November 20, 2002. Von Hagens has
pledged to carry out the first public post-mortem examination in Great
Britain since the 1830s despite being threatened with arrest after Her
Majesty's Inspector of Anatomy ruled on November 19 that he did not
have a licence to carry out the autopsy. REUTERS/Peter Macdiarmid
