Police battled machete-wielding mobs in Kenya's Rift Valley today as the country's post-election violence spread to more areas. Witnesses say hundreds of people from the rival Luo, Kikuyu tribes, many of them bearing axes, clubs and rocks confronted each other today in the city of Naivasha. The groups retreated only when police fired shots in the air. Police also fired bullets and tear gas to control mobs in the western city of Kisumu. Residents say Luo set fire that killed at least one person and that police shootings killed two.

A roadside bomb in southern Somalia killed at least 4 people including 2 foreign aid workers. Police and witnesses say the victims were killed today driving in the poor city of Kissmile. They say 2 Somalis, a Kenya and a French citizen were killed.

President Bush is preparing to deliver his final State of the Union address, the annual speech before the U.S. Congress that outlines the president's policy agenda for the coming year. White House aides said the president will focus on discussing plans to keep the US economy from slipping into a recession. VOA White House Correspondent Paula Wolfson previews the president's address.

White House officials say the president will not spend much time looking back; instead, they say he will look to the future in his final State of the Union Address. White House spokeswoman Dana Perino says he will talk about areas where he feels he can work in concert with the Democratic majority in Congress. Key among them is the enactment of measures intended to stimulate the US economy, and enhance efforts to counter the terrorist threat. The president will call on Congress to act quickly to pass an economic stimulus package along the lines of the agreement the White House recently reached with Democratic and Republican leaders in the House of Representatives. Mr. Bush is also likely to talk at some length about his hopes for a Mideast peace deal that would lay down the parameters of a Palestinian state. And there is no doubt he will speak at some length about his desire to see democracy take solid root in a stable Iraq. Paula Wolfson, VOA News, the White House.

US stocks have been slightly lower today resisting the steep losses recorded earlier in Asia. Major Stock Indexes in New York fell last 1% soon after the opening bell. In Asia earlier, markets fell between 4 and 7 percent on fears of a recession in the United States will weaken the demand for Asian exports. The major European indexes in London, Paris and Frankfurt were also down in Monday's trading.

Egyptian border guards have begun restricting traffic across the border from the Gaza Strip. This comes 5 days after parts of a border security fence were blown up, allowing Palestinians to flood into Egypt to buy food and supplies. VOA Correspondent Charles McDonna has more details from the border town of Rafah.

After 5 days of virtually unrestricted traffic, Egyptian border guards began exerting some control over the vehicles crossing the border. But pedestrians continue to pass through freely. The rain kept crowds thinner than on previous days and turned the town into a muddy mass. But there were still thousands of people gingerly navigating around badly flooded streets and slogging through ankle-deep mud to cross the border in both directions. Egyptian security forces brought in more reinforcements and set up scores of checkpoints on every road leading out of Rafah to prevent Palestinians from Gaza from heading for the nearby town of El-Arish, about 35 kilometers away. The Rafah border post is the only way in or out of Gaza that bypasses Israel. But it is almost entirely closed since Hamas violently took control of Gaza in June. Charles McDonna, VOA News, Rafah.

Pakistan's Interior Ministry says gunmen have released all the children briefly held hostage at a high school in North-west Frontier Province. A ministry spokesman says the gunmen surrendered to the local tribal council along with their weapons and released the children. The ministry said up to 250 students were being held.

Meanwhile, Pakistan's President Pervez Musharraf and British Prime Minister Gordon Brown have opened talks in London as opponents of the Pakistani leader demonstrated nearby. The talks at 10 Downing Street are expected to focus on the struggle against terrorism as well as efforts to guarantee that next month's parliamentary elections in Pakistan will be free and fair.

President Bush is preparing to deliver his final State of the Union Address, the annual speech before the U. S. Congress that outlines the president's policy agenda for the coming year. White House aid said the president will focus on discussing plans to keep the US economy from slipping into a recession. VOA White House Correspondent Paula Wolfson previews the president's address.

White House officials say the president will not spend much time looking back; instead, they say he will look to the future in his final State of the Union Address. White House spokeswoman Dana Perino says he will talk about areas where he feels he can work in concert with the Democratic majority in Congress. Key among them is the enactment of measures intended to stimulate the US economy, and enhance efforts to counter the terrorist threat. The president will call on Congress to act quickly to pass an economic stimulus package along the lines of the agreement the White House recently reached with Democratic and Republican leaders in the House of Representatives. Mr. Bush is also likely to talk at some length about his hopes for a Mideast peace deal that would lay down the parameters of a Palestinian state. And there is no doubt he will speak at some length about his desire to see democracy take solid root in a stable Iraq. Paula Wolfson, VOA News, the White House.

US stocks have been slightly lower today resisting the steep losses recorded earlier in Asia. Major Stock Indexes in New York fell last 1% that after the opening bell. In Asia earlier, markets fell between 4-7% on fears of a recession in the United States or weaken the demand for Asian exports. The major European indexes in London, Paris and Frankfurt were also down in Monday's trading.

Egyptian border guards have begun restricting traffic across the border from the Gaza Strip. This comes 5 days after parts of a border security fence were blown up, allowing Palestinians to flood into Egypt to buy food and supplies. VOA Correspondent Charles McDonna has more details from the border town of Rafah.

After 5 days of virtually unrestricted traffic, Egyptian border guards began exerting some control over the vehicles crossing the border. But pedestrians continue to pass through freely. The rain kept crowds thinner than on previous days and turned the town into a muddy mass. But there were still thousands of people gingerly navigating around badly flooded streets and slogging through ankle deep mud to cross the border in both directions. Egyptian security forces brought in more reinforcements and set up scores of checkpoints on every road leading out of Rafah to prevent Palestinians from Gaza from heading for the nearby town of El-Arish, about 35 kilometers away. The Rafah border post is the only way in or out of Gaza that bypasses Israel. But it is almost entirely closed since Hamas violently took control of Gaza in June. Charles McDonna, VOA News, Rafah.

Pakistan's Interior Ministry says gunmen have released all the children briefly held hostage at a high school in northwest Frontier Province. A ministry spokesman says the gunmen surrendered to local tribal council along with their weapons and released children. The ministry says that 250 students have been held.

Meanwhile, Pakistan's President Pervez Musharraf and British Prime Minister Gordon Brown have opened talks in London as opponents of the Pakistani leader demonstrate nearby. The talks at 10 Downing Street are expected to focus on the struggle against terrorism as well as efforts to guarantee that next month's parliamentary elections in Pakistan will be free and fair.
