It's 15:00 hours, Universal Time, and here is the news from the Voice of America.

 

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

 

A head of the International Monetary Fund says the world is on the brink of a global recession, but predicts the economy will begin to recover by late 2009.  Dominique Strauss-Khan says nations must work together to avert a global recession, and warns there is no domestic solution to the crisis. He says this week's coordinated interest rates cuts around the world are a good example of the international cooperation needed to restore faltering economies. The IMF chief made his remarks in Washington D.C. today as top officials of the IMF nations and G-7 industrialized countries are gathering for meetings on economic issues.

 

Stocks in the United States and Europe gained somewhat in today's early trading. Analysts say the latest developments indicate investors think the recent sell-off in global stock markets may have been overdone and that things may stabilize in the days ahead. Earlier, most Asian markets closed lower, but without the panic that was seen on Wednesday. Ron Corben reports on that from Bangkok.

 

Interest rates cuts by central banks in South Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan on Thursday followed cuts in the United States, Europe and China overnight. Anusorn Buranankanonda, managing director of BT Asset Management in Thailand says the cuts had a calming effect.  "The market was panicked yesterday, most markets that were panicked. Although there are some selling pressure, but the pressure today is not as intense, as you would like, as yesterday." On Thursday, the panic selling seen for most of the week eased, Hong Kong's Hang Seng Index gained more than 3 percent, and Seoul's Kospi was up more than half a percent. Other markets saw losses, but they were far milder than on Wednesday. In Tokyo, the Nikkei Average lost just half a percent after plunging nine percent a day earlier. Ron Corben for VOA News, Bangkok.

 

The Iraqi Shi'ite faction led by cleric Moqtada al-Sadr says one of its senior lawmakers has been killed in a bomb attack in Baghdad's Sadr city neighborhood. Iraqi authorities say a bomb exploded near a car carrying Lawmaker Saleh al-Auqaeili today. Officials say at least two other people were killed. The official was a member of the Sadrist political faction that holds 30 seats in the Iraqi parliament.

 

Two attacks in Pakistan including a suicide bombing inside the main police complex in Islamabad have killed at least ten people and wounded many others. Ayaz Gul reports from Islamabad.

 

Pakistani police say that the deaths occurred when a remote-controlled bomb struck a police vehicle carrying suspected criminals in the northwestern district of Dir, a region infested with pro-Taliban militants. Several policemen are said to be among those killed, while children on a nearby school bus were also reported to be among the victims. The blast occurred hours after a suicide bomber struck police headquarters in the Pakistani capital city, wounding several policemen. Officials say they have found body parts of the suspected bomber and have launched an investigation. The attack in Islamabad happened two weeks after a powerful suicide bombing targeted the city's Marriott Hotel, killing at least 55 people including several foreigners. Thursday's violence happened as top military officials briefed Pakistan's nearly eight-month-old parliament for a second day on the country's internal security situation. Ayaz Gul for VOA News, Islamabad.

 

Officials in Zimbabwe report the nation's annual inflation rate rose to a record 231 million percent in July. The state-run Herald newspaper today says Zimbabwe's Central Statistical Office is reporting higher food prices are the primary cause of the increase in inflation.

 

Diplomats say NATO defense ministers have agreed to send ships to escort humanitarian relief vessels off the coast of Somalia in an effort to combat piracy. The NATO  diplomats say the defense ministers  agreed during a meeting in Hungary today to dispatch the ships soon and work with other organizations including the European Union to address the privacy problem.

 

Diplomats in Geneva say North Korea has banned United Nations' monitors from its main Yongbyon nuclear complex. The diplomats say North Korea  told the International Atomic Energy Agency it will no longer have access to Yongbyon.

 

US stock indexes are down at this hour.

I am David Deforest, from the VOA News Centre in Washington.

 

A head of the International Monetary Fund says the world is on the brink of a global recession, but predicts the economy will begin to recover by late 2009. Dominique Strauss-Khan says nations must work together to avert a global recession, and warns that there is no domestic solution to the crisis. He says this week’s coordinated interest-rate cuts surround the world are good example of the international cooperation needed to restore faltering economies. The IMF Chief made his remarks in Washington D.C. today, as the top officials of the IMF nations and the G7 industrialized countries are gathering for meetings on economic issues.

 

Stocks in the United States and Europe gained to somewhat in today’s early trading. Analyst says the latest developments indicate investors think the recent sell-off of global stock markets may have been over-done and things may stabilized in the days ahead. Earlier, most Asian markets closed lower, but without the panic that was seen on Wednesday.

Ron Corben reports on that, from Bangkok.

Interest cuts by central banks in South Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan on Thursday followed cuts in the United States, Europe and China overnight. Anusorn Buranankanonda, Managing Director of BT Asset Management in Thailand, says the cuts had a calming effect.

It's 15:00 hours, Universal Time, and here is the news from the Voice of America.

 

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

 

A head of International Monetary Fund says the world is on the brink of a global recession, but predicts the economy will begin to recover by late 2009.  Dominique Strauss-Khan says nations must work together to avert a global recession, and warns there is no domestic solution to the crisis. He says this week's coordinated interest rate cuts around the world are a good example of the international cooperation needed to restore faltering economics. The IMF chief made his remarks in Washington D.C. today as top officials of the IMF nations and G-7 industrialized countries are gathering for meetings on economic issues.

 

Stocks in the United States and Europe gained somewhat in today's early trading. Analysts say the latest development indicate investors think the recent sell-off in global stock markets may have been overdone and that things may stabilize in the days ahead. Earlier, most Asian markets closed lower, but without the panic that was seen on Wednesday. Ron Corben reports on that from Bangkok.

 

Interest rate cuts by central banks in South Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan on Thursday followed the cuts in the United States, Europe and China overnight. Anusorn Buranankanonda, managing director of BT Asset Management in Thailand says the cuts had a calming effect.  "The markets were panicked yesterday, more markets will panic. Although there are some selling pressure, but the pressure today is not as intense as yesterday."
On Thursday, the panic selling seen for most of the week eased, Hong Kong's Hang Seng Index gained more than 3 percent, and Seoul's Kospi was up more than half a percent. Other markets saw losses, but they were far milder than on Wednesday. In Tokyo, the Nikkei average lost just half a percent after plunging nine percent a day earlier. Ron Corben for VOA News, Bangkok.

 

The Iraqi Shi'ite faction led by cleric Moqtada al-Sadr says one of its senior lawmakers has been killed in a bomb attack in Baghdad's Sadr city neighborhood. Iraqi authorities say a bomb exploded near a car carrying Lawmaker Saleh al-Auqaeili today. Officials say at least three other people were killed. The official was a member of a Sadrist political faction that holds 30 seats in the Iraqi Parliament.

 

Two attacks in Pakistan including a suicide bombing inside the main police complex in Islamabad have killed at least ten people and wounded many others. Ayaz Gul reports from Islamabad.

 

Pakistani police say that the deaths occurred when a remote-controlled bomb struck a police vehicle carrying suspected criminals in the north-western district of Dir, a region infested with pro-Taliban militants. Several policemen are said to be among those killed, while children on a nearby school bus were also reported to be among the victims. The blast occurred hours after a suicide bomber struck police headquarters in the Pakistani capital city, wounding several policemen.
