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

 

A special tribunal in Nigeria has upheld the April 2007 election of President Umaru Yar'Adua, after allegations of widespread rigging. A five-judge panel ruled today that challenges from two opposition candidates had failed to prove election irregularities were substantial enough to invalidate the result. Both of the candidates had argued that ballot papers were not numbered correctly and alleged other election irregularities.

 

The head of the African Union travels to Kenya today to try to break a deadlock in political crisis talks between the government and opposition. AU chairman and Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete is expected to meet with Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki, opposition leader Raila Odinga and the head of mediation efforts, former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan. Government officials and opposition leaders resumed negotiations today after talks deadlocked Monday after just a few hours.

 

A leading human rights group has denounced what it says is a Russian crackdown on freedoms of assembly and expression ahead of Sunday's presidential election. London-based Amnesty International, in a report, cites recent instances of police using force to break up anti-Kremlin demonstrations. It also criticizes new Russian laws restricting activities of non-governmental organizations.

 

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has launched a multi-year campaign to end violence against women and girls. From UN headquarters in New York, VOA's Margaret Besheer has more details.

 

The UN chief cited the ugly statistics on violence against women and girls around the world. "At least one out of every three women is likely to be beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused in her lifetime." Mr. Ban noted that through the practice of prenatal sex selection, countless other females are even denied the right to exist. Others suffer from trafficking, sexual harassment, female genital mutilation, dowry murder, honor killings, and female infanticide. UN statistics show more than 100 countries have no specific legal provisions against domestic violence. Marital rape is not a prosecutable offense in at least 53 countries and only 93 of nearly 200 countries reviewed have some legal provisions against human trafficking. The secretary-general called for all governments to review their laws and to enact new ones to be sure that violence against women is made a crime. Margaret Besheer VOA News, the United Nations.

 

The United States' oldest symphony orchestra performed in North Korea today with both sides saying they hope the concert would help bring more harmony to relations between Washington and Pyongyang. The New York Philharmonic opened with the national anthems of North Korea and the United States for a packed audience at the East Pyongyang Grand Theater. The North Korean leader Kim Jong-il did not attend the concert but other top officials were in the audience.

 

US Defense Secretary Robert Gates is in India today seeking closer military ties with the world's second fastest growing major economy. "We have as broad a range of interactions between the American and the Indian militaries as, certainly from our side, we have almost anywhere in the world. And I'm here to look at ways in which we can further expand that relationship." During his two-day trip, Gates will meet with top Indian officials who also have said they hope to expand strategic ties with the United States.

 

Iraqi army officials say a suicide bomber has killed at least 9 people travelling on a bus outside the northern city of Mosul. The officials say the bomber detonated his explosives today after ordering the bus driver to change direction. Meanwhile, the US military offered a different explanation saying the bomber blew himself up after leaving the bus at a routine checkpoint. The American official said the blast killed 8 people and wounded 8 others.

 

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert says a peace agreement with the Palestinians will not necessarily be concluded by the end of this year. Speaking during a four-day visit to Tokyo, Olmert said Israel has the desire to reach an agreement with the Palestinians this year, but added he was not sure Israel would be able to meet that goal.

 

Russian tennis star Maria Sharapova has pulled out of the Dubai Championships Tournament in the United Arab Emirates with a viral infection. The world number 5 Sharapova said Tuesday she was disappointed to have to withdraw from the event, but she has been battling a virus for several days. Sharapova was seeded fifth in the Dubai event.

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

 

A special tribunal in Nigeria has upheld the April 2007 election of President Umaru Yar'Adua, after allegations of widespread rigging. A five-judge panel ruled today that challenges from two opposition candidates had failed to prove election irregularities were substantial enough to invalidate the result. Both of the candidates had argued that ballot papers were not numbered correctly and alleged other election irregularities.

 

The head of the African Union travels to Kenya today to try to break a deadlock in political crisis talks between the government and opposition. AU chairman and Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete is expected to meet with Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki, opposition leader Raila Odinga and the head of mediation efforts, former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan. Government officials and opposition leaders resume negotiations today after talks deadlocked Monday after just a few hours.

 

A leading human rights group has denounced what it says is a Russian crackdown on freedoms of assembly and expression ahead of Sunday's presidential election. London-based Amnesty International, in a report, cites recent instances of police using force to break up anti-Kremlin demonstrations. It also criticizes new Russian laws restricting activities of non-governmental organizations.

 

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has launched a multi-year campaign to end violence against women and girls. From UN headquarters in New York, VOA's Margaret Besheer has more details.

 

The UN chief cited the ugly statistics on violence against women and girls around the world. "At least one out of every three women is likely to be beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused in her lifetime." Mr. Ban noted that through the practice of prenatal sex selection, countless other females are even denied the right to exist. Others suffer from trafficking, sexual harassment, female genital mutilation, dowry murder, honor killings, and female infanticide. UN statistics show more than 100 countries have no specific legal provisions against domestic violence. Marital rape is not a prosecutable offense in at least 53 countries and only 93 of nearly 200 countries reviewed have some legal provisions against human trafficking. The secretary-general called for all governments to review their laws and to enact new ones to be sure that violence against women is made a crime. Margaret Besheer VOA News, the United Nations.

 

The United States' oldest symphony orchestra performed in North Korea today with both sides saying they hope the concert would help bring more harmony to relations between Washington and Pyongyang. The New York Philharmonic opened with the national anthems of North Korea and the United States for a packed audience at the East Pyongyang Grand Theater. The North Korean leader Kim Jong-il did not attend the concert but other top officials were in the audience.

 

US Defense Secretary Robert Gates is in India today seeking closer military ties with the world's second fastest growing major economy. "We have as broad a range of interactions between the American and the Indian military(请问如果从语法角度,这里要militaries吗?) as, certainly from our side, we have almost anywhere in the world. And I'm here to look at ways in which we can further expand that relationship."
