At a ceremony in the Italian town of Bari, Mr. Medvedev was handed the keys to the church by his Italian counterpart Giorgio Napolitano. The church is the burial site of Saint Nicolas, the patriot Saint of Russia who is revered by the Orthodox Church. He is popular in the West as Santa Claus. A BBC correspondent says the gesture is aimed at improving the often-tense relations between the Orthodox and Catholic faiths, Christianity's two biggest churches.

 

And with that story, we come to the end of this bulletin of BBC News.

BBC news with Michael Polls.

 

There's renewed concern about security inside the democratic republic of Congo. Only a few days after Rwandar withdrew its forces from the east of the country, Hutu rebels have re-taken positions they'd lost during military operations against them. Mark Doll is in Congo and sent this report.

 

A UN spokesman said he had reports that the Rwandar rebels had retaken several positions in eastern Congo, including a former military training school. The Congolese government said these were just hit and run attacks of a type which would also occured when the troops of the powerful Rwandar government army was still inside Congo. However there are abound of fears among Congolese civilians that their Congolese army has shown to be weak or is failing to stand up to the rebels.

 

Europen Union leaders have ended an emergency signed in Brussels with a pledge to respect rules of a single market in the face of the worsing economic crisis. But there was no agreement on a 230 billion dollar regional emergency fund proposed by Hungary. Wild Jusgo reports from Brussels.

 

The President of the European Commission José Manuel Durão Barroso said there was a great deal of concensus on avioding  unilateral measures that would affect others in the EU, both in bailing-out banks and the car industry. We need a Europe with rules and common principles, he stressed. The Czech Prime Minister Mirek Topolánek  dismissed the talk of  a massive regional aid plan for eastern Europe but said the EU wouldn't leave anyone in the lurch.

 

The Amercia Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has arrived in Egypt on her first vist to the middle east  since taking office. She will attend an International Dona conference for Gaza Strip on Monday at which she expected to pledge a 900 million dollars on behalf of the United States. The Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has devoted almost 3 billion dollars, much of it for rebuilding Gaza after Israle's recent offensive. After the talk in Egypt, Mrs. Clinton will travel onto Israel on the west bank.

 

The American defence secretary Robert Gates has said the United States is in a better position than in the past to offer military support to the neighbouring Mexico in its fight against drug trafficking. As million sent petrol along America's desperate reports, the comments may be aimed at smoothing over the diplomatic row between the two countries over Mexico's drug violence.

 

Mr. Gate's comments on a major television network comes just days after the Mexican president Felipe Calderon  expressed outrage of report by the US defence department which said the drug related violence could turn Mexico into a fail state. Now in his first comments since that row, the American defence secretary had nothing but praises for the Mexican President. He said it was mostly due to Calderon's courageous efforts against the drugs' cartels that Washington now is more willing than it had ever been to offer Mexico more military assistants to take on the drugs' traffickers.

 

A media sent petrol. This is Michael Polls with the latest world news from the BBC.

 

An international tribunal set up to try the suspected killers of the former Lebanese prime minister Rafiq Hariri is formally opened in Netherlands. But his chief prosecutor Daniel Badmar said the tribunal was not about revenge for the Bayroot bomb attack which killed Mr. Harare and 22 others four years ago but about finding the true and credible justice.

 

Thousands of opposition supporters have been attending the a rally in the central of Arminia capital Alavan to mark the 1st anniversary of the country's worst political violence since independence from Soviet Union. The protesters are demanding an early elections and release of people they say of political prisoners. The former president * told the rally that the government need to change its methods and open a dialogue with the opposition. Thomas * reports from Yella Van.

 

This demonstration is by far the biggest to be held in Yellavan since clashes a year ago left ten people dead and plunged Arminia into the state of emergency. On Mar. 1st, 2008, Arminian police dispersed hundreds of supporters of the defeated presidential candidate * who'd rallied for 11 days  denouncing president *  Febrary election win as fraudulent. In the following days, more than 100 people were arrested. More than 40 are received jails sentences and some are still in trial.

 

The Russian president * has taken * position to an important Russian orthodox church built in Italy a century ago. In the ceremony, the Italian * was handed the keys of church by his Italian counterpart *. The church is? the patriant saint in Russia who's severed by the orthoxy church, he's popular in the west with Saint Clause. Our BBC correspondant says the gesture is aimed at improving the often tense relations between the Orthodox and Catholic faiths. Christianity's two biggest churches.

 

And That were our story, come to the end of this bulletin of BBC news.

the keys 那里 我再听了几次,还是觉得明显是 of, 且跟前面s 连读。真是很奇怪。

 搜到也是to 和of 两种情况都有 (很多情况是the keys to)

 

 

 

不过既然那么多听友听得 是to,就暂时保留罢。
