On Oscar 斑竹~

 

Hi, I'm Philip Alexio from the VOA News Center in Washington. 

The U.S.-protected green zone in Iraq's capital Baghdad has again come under attack, leaving two Iraqi guards dead outside Vice President Tariq Al-Hashmi's office. Latest reports from the scene indicate that the Vice President was not there at the time of the attack today. A thick cloud of smoke rose over the zone which houses the U.S. embassy and much of the Iraqi government. Militants have been bombarding the green zone since Sunday. At least two Americans have been killed in the attacks and the U.S. State Department has urged all U.S. embassy personnel to stay inside reinforced buildings. Meanwhile, Iraq's Parliament is holding an emergency session aimed at ending the violence in Basra and other southern Iraqi cities that has killed more than 100 people over the past few days.

 

North Korea is warning it might slow or even halt its cooperation in dismantling key nuclear facilities amid a dispute with Washington over an alleged uranium enrichment program. Pyongyang has also conducted a short range missile test, widely seen by experts as a show of displeasure with hardening policy approaches by South Korea and the United States. VOA Seoul correspondent Kurt Achin reports.

 

North Korea issued one of its most explicit and vehement denials Friday of U.S. allegations it pursued a secret uranium enrichment program and may have lent nuclear assistance to Syria. South Korean officials say a dispute over those allegations is the reason why North Korea is nearly 4 months late in providing a nuclear declaration it promised by the end of 2007. A North Korea spokesman warned Friday that the dispute could have a grave impact on Pyongyang's cooperation in disabling key nuclear facilities. Separately, North Korea test-fired several short range missiles into waters off its western coast. Lee Dong-kwan, spokesman for South Korean President Lee Myung-bak, says Seoul is responding calmly. North Korea does conduct occasional missile tests even when tensions on the peninsula are relatively low. However there is a widespread agreement among analysts here in Seoul that the timing of the tests suggests it represents a show of displeasure by the North.  Kurt Achin, VOA News, Seoul.
              
Zimbabwe state-run media are predicting an overwhelming victory for President Robert Mugabe in Saturday's elections. The state-run Herald newspaper say a new public opinion poll shows Mr. Mugabe likely will win 57% of the vote. But the paper also reported new allegations that the ruling ZANU-PF party is planning to rig the election. Presidential challenger Simba Makoni says the list of registered voters includes the names of dead people and shows up to 75 people living at one address. Zimbabwe's Justice Minister said today there is no basis to the allegations. 


Well Israel is extending an olive branch to Syria. Robert Burger reports from the VOA Bureau in Jerusalem.

Cabinet Minister Benjamin Ben-Eliezer says Israel is making every effort to bring Syria back to the negotiating table. Ben-Eliezer told Israel radio that the purpose of negotiations is to reach a peace agreement, and he said everyone knows the price, namely the return of the Golan heights to Syria. Israel captured the Golan from Syria during the 6-day war in 1967 and annexed it in 1981. Israel is reluctant to give the territory up. It is a strategic high ground and 31 Jewish settlements have been established there. Peace talks between Israel and Syria collapsed in 2000 when the sides failed to agree on the extent of an Israeli withdrawal from the Golan. Robert Burger for VOA News, Jerusalem.
 
A leading Human Rights group says Kosovo criminal justice system is broken and in urgent need of fixing. In a report released today, Human Rights Watch (is) calling on the country's leaders to cooperate with the European Union to improve the system and rebuild the rule of law in Kosovo.
