BBC News with Ian Perdon.

The United States /Treasury Secretary, Henry Paulson, has warned that despite the huge government rescue package to shore up the financial system, some banks will still fail. He called for swift implementation of the 700-billion-dollar plan approved by Congress last week but added that getting it right was as important as doing it quickly. Mr. Paulson added that the financial crisis would not end soon and that significant challenges remained.

"We will continue to coordinate with other federal regulators to address the four key challenges in our financial markets today -- confidence, capital, systemic risk and liquidity. Although we are facing particularly difficult circumstances, I remain confident that we will work through this challenge as we have always successfully worked through every economic challenge in the history of the United States.”

In a move designed to show a unified approach to dealing with the global financial turmoil, many of the world’s major economies have taken unprecedented coordinated action to tackle the crisis. Central banks in Britain, the Eurozone, and the United States have simultaneously cut interest rates by half of one percent.

Meanwhile, the Italian government has approved an emergency measure guaranteeing bank deposits up to $140, 000. The British government announced an unprecedented 90-billion-dollar plan to support the country’s largest banks.

The Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko has dissolved parliament and called for earlier elections, following the collapse of the pro-western governing coalition. The president’s Our Ukraine party and the bloc of the Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko fell out last month with Mr. Yushchenko accusing the prime minister of siding with Russia over the conflict in Georgia. Gabriel Gatehouse reports.

In a televised address, Viktor Yushchenko said he tried but failed to bring the bickering parliamentarians together and he had no option but to dissolve the assembly. The choice he said is now with the people. The latest crisis was triggered last month when a number of the president’s supporters walked out of a coalition with the Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko .There is intense personal rivalry between the two former allies who together led mass street protests in 2004 in what became known as the Orange Revolution.

Russia has confirmed the withdrawal of its peacekeeping troops from occupied territory in Georgia adjacent to the breakaway region of South Ossetia. A senior Russian commander in the area said they’d pulled out personnel, weapons, hardware and equipment. Earlier the Georgian government said that Russian troops had also left areas next to the other breakaway region Abkhazia. The Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said he trusted European Union monitors and the Georgian police to deal with any problems in the vacated areas. Mr. Lavrov said the monitors would not be allowed into Abkhazia or South Ossetia where Russia says it has the right to keep nearly 8,000 troops.

The world's fishing fleets are losing out on about 50 billion dollars every year largely because stocks are poorly managed. That’s according to a new report from the World Bank and the UN Food and Agricultural Organization. It says there are too many fishing boats chasing too few fish. From the World Conservation Congress in Barcelona where the report is being discussed, here’s our environment correspondent Richard Black.

Many academics cite subsidies as the main reason for the current situation. One recent study calculated subsidies at 30 billion dollars per year. Cutting them comes with political pain, as fishing is a politically important industry in many countries. However, the World Bank says that with its new report, it’s providing the economic justification for the steps that policymakers have to take.

A government report in Brazil says the country’s population is getting older and will start to decline in just over two decades from now, much earlier than expected. The report says Brazilian women are having fewer children now, compared with the 1960s, when most of the population still lived in the rural areas and the workforce was predominantly male. From Sao Paulo, Gary Duffy reports.

According to the research, there will be 204 million Brazilians in the year 2030, but five years later, the population will have fallen back to 200 million. However, it is the changing profile that seems to have attracted most attention, with one publication appearing to lament in its words, that Brazil is no longer going to be known as a country of young people.

President Bush has signed into law a bill allowing American businesses to sell nuclear fuel and technology to India. It ends a long-running ban on American nuclear sales to India, imposed after Delhi exploded a nuclear device in 1974. The landmark agreement has been criticized because it allows India to obtain US nuclear materials even though Delhi has not signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
