Jackson father on grandchildren

A court in Los Angeles has awarded temporary custody of Michael Jackson's three children to his mother, Katherine.

The family of the pop singer, who died last Thursday, will look after the children until another hearing set for August.

They are also waiting for the results of a second post mortem examination.

The father of Michael Jackson has said his family is not yet ready to set a date for the star's funeral service.
