Homework

 

It is 15:30 Universal Time. I'm Steve Ember in Washington.

 

[1] In Malaysia, the opposition Democratic Action Party has ousted the ruling national from coalition in the northern state Penang during general election Saturday. Officials and media say the Democratic Action Party is leading in races for at least 17 of the 40 seats in the state legislature. Other opposition parties are expected to win at least 6 other seats in Penang. The opposition Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party would keep control of northeastern state of Kelantan. Since voting started early Saturday, there have been accusations of violence and tends to illegally influents the vote. 

 

[2] Iraqi security forces have found 100 died bodies in a large burial area north of Baghdad. It is one of largest burial areas found in the country in a month. American and Iraqi military officials did not say who was responsible for the grave or who the victims were. 

[3] In other news, American and Iraqi officials are expected to hold talks in Baghdad on agreements that would guide future relations between the two countries. The talks are aimed at region two main agreements. Officials say one agreement would be a guiding plan for American and Iraqi relations. The other agreement would provide a legal explanation for having American forces on Iraqi territory. 

 

[4] Iraqi President Jalal Talabani is urging Turkish to invest in his country as party of cooperative relationship. Mr. Talabani met with a group of Turkish investors Saturday in Ankara. He told the group that Iraq wants to establish relations in every area including economic, political and cultural. The president said Iraq is prepared to support Turkish companies in every area of the country. Mr. Talabani is in Turkey to easy tensions caused by the offensive last month by the Turkish military into northern Iraq.  

 

[5] In Afghanistan, thousands of people demonstrated Saturday. They were protesting the publication in Denmark of carton picture of Prophet Muhammad. Demonstrators in Herat called out words denouncing the Denmark for insulting Islam. The picture was one of 12 that led to riots across Muslim world when they were first published in 2006. Several Danish newspapers published the picture again last month to show support for its artist. Police recently learned about a plot to kill the artist. Moslems consider any images of prophet to be a sign of disrespect.
