Transcript

From NPR News in Washington, I'm Nora Raum.

President Bush arrived in the United Arab Emirates today, the most recent stop in his eight-day trip to the Middle East. He told an audience in Dubai, the region has played a significant role in the history of the world. 'Thess lands have seen the rise and fall of great civilizations. And in the 21st century, these lands are once again playing a central role in the human story.' Earlier today, the president visited the U.S. Navy's Fifth Fleet in the gulf island Kingdom of Bahrain. The commander said that he told the president that he's taking very seriously last week's encounter with Iranian boats in the Persian Gulf. A fleet of high speed Iranian boats approached U.S. navy convoy. They went away as the American ship commanders were preparing to open fire.

The Nevada state education association has filed a lawsuit against the state's Democratic Party over rules for next week's presidential caucus. Willy Obright of member station KXJZ reports.

According to the union party rules that make it easier for Las Vegas strip shift workers to attend precinct meetings violate state law and federal equal protection guarantees. Caucus rules would allow shift workers employed within two and a half miles of the strip to attend at large precinct meetings in casinos rather than returning to their home precincts. The suit filed in U.S. district court claims this discriminates in favor of some participants based solely on employment. Most of them belong to the Culinary Workers Union which endorsed Barack Obama on Tuesday. Culinary is the largest union in the state. For NPR News, I'm Willy Obright in Reno, Nevada.

The leading Republican presidential hopefuls are campaigning in Michigan this weekend before that state's primary Tuesday. A poll conducted for the Detroit News shows the race of a statistical dead heat with Senator John Mccain at 27%, and former governor Mitt Romney at 26%.

People in Brazil and neighboring countries are crowding clinics to be vaccinated against Yellow Fever. The health ministry confirms a man died from the disease last week. Richard Ronald reports.

The initial panic which has seen over 500,000 people vaccinated in Brazil was started when a dead monkey found in the park in the capital Brasilia tested positive for the disease. Brazil has not seen a case of yellow fever in an urban environment for more than 60 years. A few dozen people do die each year of the disease, but in remote areas. The man who died lived in Brasilia. About eighteen people from the city are suspected of having the disease. Yellow fever is a virulent virus which kills about 60% of those that infect. It is carried by mosquitoes. People in neighboring Uruguay and here Argentina are also getting vaccinated even though they are 1000 miles from the infection site. Media reports indicate that hundreds of thousands in the region where the three countries meet have also been vaccinated in past week. For NPR News, I'm Richard Ronald in Buenos Aires.

Only a few weeks after South Africa's ruling party's president was indicted on charges of racketeering, money laundering and income tax evasion, the country's police commissioner is facing the same charges. NPR's Charlene Hunter-Gault reports.

South Africa's top cop and Interpol head Jackie Selebi has stepped down from his post after the national prosecuting authority filed court papers charging him with corruption and defeating the ends of justice. Selebi is accused of receiving unauthorized gratification from an organized crime figure and a slain mining magnate associated with him. Selebi has consistently professed his innocence saying he was not aware that the mafia kingpin was a criminal, but court papers show Selebi made 223 calls to the known mafia kingpin over a 3.5-year period. Earlier the head of the team investigating Selebi, Gerrie Nel was himself arrested by Selebi's team on charges of defeating the ends of justice. Charlene Hunter-Gault, NPR News, Johannesburg South Africa.

Two Australian adventurers arrived in New Zealand today by kayak, the first people to make the trip across the Tasman Sea in a kayak. It took them 62 days longer than they had expected because of strong winds and currents. They arrived near the town of New Plymouth and were welcomed by thousands of kayak enthusiasts. Last year, another Australian had disappeared while trying to cross the Tasman Sea alone in a kayak.

The National Weather Service predicts a large and complex winter storm over parts of the Upper Midwest and New England today as much as a foot of snow is expected. The fast moving storm may also drop from 6 to12 inches of snow over Michigan.
