President Bush says the United States is doing all it can for the people of Darfur in Sudan and reaffirmed his decision not to commit troops to the region. In an interview with BBC World TV, Mr. Bush said he'd continue to raise Beijing's dealings with Sudan in his talks with the Chinese leadership. His comments followed the action of the Hollywood filmmaker Steven Spielberg, who resigned this week as the artistic director of the Beijing Olympics because of his concern that China was not using its close economic ties with Sudan to put pressure on the Khartoum government over Darfur. President Bush said he wanted to keep the Olympics and politics separate.

I'm going to the Olympics. I view the Olympics as a sporting event. On the other hand, I have a little different platform than Steven Spielberg, so I get to talk to President Hu Jintao, and I do remind him that he can do more to relieve the suffering in Darfur. I am not gonna go and use the Olympics as an opportunity to express my opinions to the Chinese people in a public way 'cause I do it all the time with the President.

The Serbian Foreign Minister, Vuk Jeremic, has addressed the United Nations Security Council to underline his country's opposition to plans for the province of Kosovo to declare independence unilaterally. The ethnic Albanian majority in Kosovo is expected to announce its breakaway from Serbia within days. Matt Wells reports from New York.

The Serbian Foreign Minister said after the meeting that it was not too late for diplomats to prevent Kosovo's unilateral declaration of independence. He called on the Security Council to continue to negotiate and he claimed that a majority of member states agreed that the search for a compromise should continue. He promised that Serbia would not resort to force to try to prevent Kosovo's independence, and he warned that allowing it to go ahead would give the green light to separatist movements around the world.

The president of world football's governing body FIFA has denounced plans by the English Premier League to play ten fixtures at foreign venues each season, saying it will never happen while he is in charge. The Premier League says the plan is aimed at promoting a successful brand, but in a BBC interview, Sepp Blatter said the proposal amounted to abuse of association football.

It gives the impression that they just want to go on tour to make some money. This is something clearly that I cannot understand and definitely the FIFA executive committee will not sanction such an initiative.

After a marathon vote count which went on for nine days, it's been announced that Senator Hillary Clinton narrowly won the New Mexico Democratic caucuses that choose the party's candidate for the US presidency. The system of proportional representation means that New Mexico which voted on Super Tuesday will be sending to the Democratic convention 14 delegates for Mrs. Clinton and 12 for her rival Senator Barack Obama. The two are still running practically neck and neck in the race for their party's nomination.

Police in the United States say a gunman has opened fire at a university west of Chicago, wounding up to 15 people before killing himself. Students at the Northern Illinois University described how they rushed away from lecture halls after hearing shots, banging on dormitory doors to tell other people of the danger. Vincent Dowd reports from Washington.

It's reported that a white man burst into a lecture hall in the middle of the afternoon at Northern Illinois University and opened fire with a shotgun or a pistol or perhaps both. The nearby Kishwaukee Community Hospital says it's admitted 17 people, three in a critical condition. It's known some of those hurt have head injuries. Little more than an hour after the incident began, police said the gunman was no longer a threat and it's now been confirmed he is dead. There're unconfirmed reports of one other fatality.

The United States says it intends to shoot down a malfunctioning spy satellite expected to fall to earth early next month. A Pentagon spokesman said the aim was to prevent the satellite causing damage on the ground by destroying it before it enters the atmosphere with a specially adapted missile fired from a warship.

There's anger amongst women's rights groups in Italy after police in the city of Naples confiscated an aborted fetus. The police are investigating whether the abortion was carried out too late. Doctors had concluded that the woman involved was within the 24-week time frame during which abortion is legal in Italy if a fetus is malformed.

An international team of scientists signed up has unveiled the first global map showing the full extent of damage done to the oceans by human activity. More than 40% of marine waters have suffered a major destructive impact due to climate change, pollution, oil exploration and commercial fishing. Worst affected are the eastern Caribbean, the North Sea and waters of Japan. Only 4% of the oceans remain relatively pristine.
