I'm John Dryden from the VOA News Center in Washington.

 

Zimbabwe's president Robert Mugabe says Friday's presidential runoff election will go ahead as planned despite the withdrawal of opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai. The Opposition Movement for Democratic Change says it hand-delivered its notice of withdrawal from the election. Opposition leader Tsvangirai announced his pullout on Sunday, saying violence against his supporters made the election impossible. Tsvangirai took refuge in the Dutch embassy on Sunday and remains there today. He told VOA that he still does not feel secure, despite assurances of his safety from Zimbabwe's police commissioner.

 

Palestinian militants in the Gaza strip have fired three rockets into southern Israel, wounding two people and straining a 6-day old truce in the region. Two of the rockets landed inside the Israeli town of Sderot on Tuesday, causing some damage while the third rocket fell nearby. The Islamic Jihad militant group claimed responsibility for the rockets, saying they were in retaliation for an Israeli air-raid in the West Bank.

 

U.S. and Iraqi officials say an explosion at a local council building in Baghdad's Sadr city has killed ten people including at least eight Iraqi and American civilians. A U.S. military spokesman tells VOA that two US soldiers and two American civilians were also killed when the bomb exploded during a meeting of an Iraqi-led district council.

 

The commander of U.S. and coalition forces in Eastern Afghanistan says his area has experienced a 40 percent increase in insurgent attacks since January. And the attacks are more complex and more sophisticated than they used to be. VOA's  Al Pessin reports from the Pentagon.

 

The newly-arrived US commander Major General Jeffrey Schloesser, painted a relatively bleak picture of the situation in Eastern Afghanistan. "We think we've had about a 40 percent increase in the number of enemy attacks that we had on our coalition and Afghan partners." General Schloesser says many of the attacks are more complex than they used to be, with insurgents using multiple roadside bombs combined with small arms fire to attack U.S. and NATO convoys. In addition, the general says the insurgents are getting more sophisticated in their choice of targets. "They're burning schools, they are also killing teachers and they're killing students." General Schloesser says the insurgents have even turned to such tactics as using a 10-year-old boy to carry a suicide bomb. The general also says the Afghan military is performing well, and is, in his words, "almost at the tipping point" where its momentum "will not be able to go backwards.” Al Pessin VOA News at the Pentagon.

 

Iran says it will consider any request by the United States to open a diplomatic office in the Islamic Republic if U.S. officials said the Bush administration is considering such a move.  An unnamed official said the proposal will create a US presence in Iran without the formal resumption of diplomatic ties. It calls for setting up an office in Tehran staffed by American diplomats who would process visas for Iranians applying to visit the United States.

 

The Indian government is scrambling to build political support for a controversial landmark nuclear energy pact with the United States. Anjana Pasricha reports from New Delhi.

 

The political spat that is threatening the Congress-led government began after Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said he wants to push through a civilian nuclear deal with the United States, so that it can receive approval of the U.S. Senate before President Bush leaves office in January. Singh's communist allies immediately warned they will withdraw support, if the government goes ahead with the pact. The nuclear deal was clinched in 2006.   It would allow India access to civilian nuclear technology, even though it has not signed the nuclear non-proliferation treaty. But the deal has been in limbo because leftist parties, who staunchly oppose the pact, have not allowed the government to seek approvals needed to make it operational.  They say the pact will build a strategic partnership with the United States and damage India's independent foreign policy. The government and the leftists are scheduled to meet Wednesday to see if they can resolve the impasse. Anjana Pasricha for VOA News, New Delhi.

 

Two new economic reports painted a downbeat picture of the American economy as top central bank officials gathered to discuss US interest rates. The reports show US consumer confidence dropping to the lowest level ever recorded and US home prices falling at the fastest rate on record. The falling consumer confidence could get worse. A separate report says home prices in ten metropolitan areas fell more than 16 percent in April from the same time a year ago.
