I'm David Deforest from the VOA News Center in Washington.

 

Iraqi Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr is threatening a nationwide civil revolt. His threat comes as security forces engage in heavy fighting with a militia from Sadr's Mahdi Army. A statement read today by a Sadr aide says the cleric will launch the revolt if the attacks against members of his movement continue.

 

Iraqi officials say fighting today between government security forces and Shiite militias in the city of Basra has killed at least 12 people and wounded more than 18. It is the first day of a major military operation targeting militia factions in the south. Witnesses reported hearing gunfire and seeing columns of smoke shortly after the fighting erupted. Police today imposed curfews in several southern cities. A curfew was already in place for all of Basra province. Fighting also erupted in the capital Baghdad between suspected Mahdi fighters and members of a rival Shiite faction.

 

A new prime minister has been sworn into office in Pakistan. VOA correspondent Steve Herman reports from Islamabad.
                  
At exactly noon, President Pervez Musharraf administered the oath of office to the new Prime Minister, Yousuf Raza Gilani, who spent more than 4 years in jail under Mr. Musharraf's rule. "May Allah Almighty help and guide me, Amen. May Allah Almighty help and guide me, Amen. " Some supporters of the prime minister then began chanting "Long live Bhutto." If she had not been assassinated on December 27, it is possible former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto would have been the one taking the oath of office. Her Pakistan People's Party swept to victory on a wave of sympathy in last month's elections. The runner-up party, led by former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, has joined the party of his rival, the late Ms. Bhutto, to form an anti-Musharraf coalition. A showdown is looming between the new government and the president concerning the judiciary. The coalition has pledged to restore to the bench judges removed last year by the president. But the replacement Supreme Court has ruled the dismissals of their predecessors to be constitutional. After his selection by parliament, the new prime minister immediately freed the ousted judges, who had been under house arrest for more than 4 months. Steve Herman, VOA News, Islamabad.
               
U. S. Deputy Secretary of State John Negroponte and Assistant Secretary of State Richard Boucher held talks with President Musharraf. They also met with Nawaz Sharif, a senior partner in the new coalition. Later, Sharif told reporters the incoming administration will review President Musharraf's counter-terrorism strategies. He said he told the U. S. officials Mr. Musharraf will no longer have the sole power to make security decisions.

 

An Egyptian military court has again postponed its verdict in the trial of 40 Muslim Brotherhood members facing charges of belonging to a banned organization. The verdict is now scheduled for April 15, days after the country's local elections, in which the Brotherhood is challenging Egypt's ruling party. Officials for the opposition group today called the postponement a political move.

 

South Korea's Human Rights Commission says it will investigate human rights abuses in North Korea. The move is a departure from the past, when the commission has focused almost exclusively on issues within South Korea's borders. VOA Seoul correspondent Kurt Achin has a report.

 

The South Korean National Human Rights Commission says the former investigation of abuses within North Korea's borders will get underway next month. Cho Young-guk, senior policy researcher at the commission, says North Korean defectors in the South will be the main source of information. Cho says there are about 13,000 North Korean defectors living in South Korea. He says it would be too time-consuming and costly to do thorough interviews with all of them. Instead, researchers will consult a sample group of the North Korean population. North Korea is widely considered to be one of the world's worst abusers of its own citizens' human rights. United Nations-appointed special researcher Vitit Muntabhorn told the U. N. Human Rights council this month, the North makes "extensive use of torture and public executions." His report also criticized the imprisonment of entire families under what he calls "appalling" conditions. Kurt Achin, VOA News, Seoul.

 

The government of Comoros says its forces have captured the capital of the rebel-controlled island Anjouan with the help of African Union forces. Troops landed on the island today to try to seize control from Anjouan's self-declared leader, Colonel Mohamed Bacar. Officials say they have located Bacar, but have not captured him.

Iraqi officials say fighting today between government security forces and Shiite militias in the city of Basra has killed at least 12 people and wounded more than 18. It is the first day of a major military operation targeting militia factions in the south. Witnesses reported hearing gunfire and seeing columns of smoke shortly after the fighting erupted. Police today imposed curfews in several southern cities. A curfew was already in place for all of Basra province. Fighting also erupted in the capital Baghdad between suspected Mahdi fighters and members of a rival Shiite faction.

 

A new prime minister has been sworn into office in Pakistan. VOA correspondent Steve Herman reports from Islamabad.
                  
At exactly noon, President Pervez Musharraf administered the oath of office to the new Prime Minister, Yousuf Raza Gilani, who spent more than 4 years in jail under Mr. Musharraf's rule. "May Allah Almighty help and guide me, Amen. May Allah Almighty help and guide me, Amen. " Some supporters of the prime minister then began chanting "Long live Bhutto." If she had not been assassinated on December 27, it is possible former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto would have been the one taking the oath of office. Her Pakistan People's Party swept to victory on a wave of sympathy in last month's elections. The runner-up party, led by former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, has joined the party of his rival, the late Ms. Bhutto, to form an anti-Musharraf coalition. A showdown is looming between the new government and the president concerning the judiciary. The coalition has pledged to restore to the bench judges removed last year by the president. But the replacement Supreme Court has ruled the dismissals of their predecessors to be constitutional. After his selection by parliament, the new prime minister immediately freed the ousted judges, who had been under house arrest for more than 4 months.

U. S. Deputy Secretary of State John Negroponte and Assistant Secretary of State Richard Boucher held talks with President Musharraf. They also met with Nawaz Sharif, a senior partner in the new coalition. Later, Sharif told reporters the incoming administration will review President Musharraf's counter-terrorism strategies. He said he told the U. S. officials Mr. Musharraf will no longer have the sole power to make security decisions.

 

An Egyptian military court has again postponed its verdict in the trial of 40 Muslim Brotherhood members facing charges of belonging to a banned organization. The verdict is now scheduled for April 15, days after the country's local elections, in which the Brotherhood is challenging Egypt's ruling party. Officials for the opposition group today called the postponement a political move.

 

South Korea's Human Rights Commission says it will investigate human rights abuses in North Korea. The move is a departure from the past, when the commission has focused almost exclusively on issues within South Korea's borders. VOA Seoul correspondent Kurt Achin has a report.

 

The South Korean National Human Rights Commission says the former investigation of abuses within North Korea's borders will get underway next month. Cho Young-guk, senior policy researcher at the commission, says North Korean defectors in the South will be the main source of information. Cho says there are about 13,000 North Korean defectors living in South Korea. He says it would be too time-consuming and costly to do thorough interviews with all of them. Instead, researchers will consult a sample group of the North Korean population. North Korea is widely considered to be one of the world's worst abusers of its own citizens' human rights. United Nations-appointed special researcher Vitit Muntabhorn told the U. N. Human Rights council this month, the North makes "extensive use of torture and public executions." His report also criticized the imprisonment of entire families under what he calls "appalling" conditions. Kurt Achin, VOA News, Seoul.
