From the VOA News Center in Washington, I am Frances Alonzo.

US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and British Foreign Secretary David Miliband have made an unannounced visit to Afghanistan’s Kandahar province. Rice and Miliband met with NATO commanders and troops today at an airbase there before heading back to Kabul to meet with Afghan president Hamid Karzai. Earlier the US Secretary of State told reporters the NATO forces are facing a real test in Afghanistan and stresses that alliance members must share the burden of combat against the Taliben. "We shouldn’t underestimate the transformation that NATO itself has gone through and being able to really learn how to fight this fight. This is a differnet fight than NATO was structured to do. It's taken some time. It may take some more time." The US and British secretaries’ visit comes as NATO defense ministers meet in Lithuania today to discuss the alliances' deployment in Afghanistan.

Israeli troops backed by warplanes and tanks killed six Palestinian militants and one civilian during a raid in the Gaza early today. Officials of the Islamic militant group Hamas say five of the Palestinians who died in the fighting in the northern Gaza Strip were Hamas members. Palestinian hospital officails say an Israeli missile stripped a school in the town of Beit Hanoun. Israel's military meanwhile says it is investigating the incident.

Turkey’s parliament has approved of a constitutional amendment to lift a decades-old ban on women wearing Islamic headscarves at the country’s universities. In a vote early Thursday, the bill won more than the two-thirds majority required for it to become law. A second and final vote is scheduled for Saturday. The text of the amendment says no one can be deprived of the right to higher education, alluding to Muslim women who cannot attend classes while wearing headscarves. Deputy Prime Minister Cemil Cicek said the reform will end an injustice. He said in a democracy everybody is equal before the law and the lifting of the ban is being done to end discrimination. He says the change is being made in the name of freedom. However, the main opposition People's Party has condemned the vote.

The government of Chad has imposed a dust-to-dawn curfew in the capital and six interior regions in an effort to restore calm after a rebel offensive. The prime minister today announced that the six thirty PM to six AM curfew will take effect immediately. French radio quotes the chadian rebel leaders denying President Idriss Deby’s claim that the government is in total control of the country.

Kenyan police say they will charge one of their officers with murder after he was filmed shooting to dead two protesters last month. Police say today that constable Edward Kirui will be charged with the January 16th killings of two men in the western town of Kisumu.

India meanwhile is sticking by its position that it cannot make any binding commitments on reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Anjana Pasricha reports on an international conference on sustainable development being held in the Indian capital of New Delhi.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh says India will ensure that its per capita emissions of green house gases never exceed those of developed countries. Since the country’s per capita emissions are far below those of richer countries, that essentially means that India will not commit to reducing carbon dioxide emissions which many people see as key to slowing climate change. Prime minister Singh was addressing a conference on sustainable development in New Delhi Thursday. He says India still needs to pull vast sections of its population out of poverty. “We need to ensure an acceptable standard of living for all of our people, but would choose a sustainable path for that development." Mr Singh says India will prepare a national plan to tackle issues of climate change by June. India is the world's fifth largest emitter of greenhouse gases which many scientists think contribute to global warming. New Delhi has repeatedly rejected its demands for specific reduction targets saying they would hurt its economy. Anjana Pasricha for VOA News, New Delhi.

The US military says Iraqi and coalition forces have killed a suspected insurgent and detained fifteen others in a raid on Baghdad's southern city district. The military says the operation targeted criminals responsible for attacks on US and Iraqi foreces.

US stock market indexes were down as today’s trading got underway. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was lost one-tenth of a percent at twelve thousand and eighty seven. US and P. 500 droped one–tenth of a percent at one thousand three hundred twenty six.
