From the VOA News Center in Washington, I am Robert Burns.

 

The U.N. Security Council has failed to pass sanctions against Zimbabwe after both China and Russia vetoed the measure. The U.S.-sponsored draft resolution has called for financial and travel restrictions against President Robert Mugabe and 13 others for violence leading up to last month's presidential vote. Zimbabwe said in a letter to the United Nations that international sanctions against the government could lead to a civil war.


Lebanon has formally formed a national unity government with the job of  solving a political crisis that threatens to spiral into a civil war. The new government is established by a presidential decree  because the Hezbollah-led opposition veto  power and eleven seats of the 30 member cabinet. The majority coalition supported by the west hold 16 seats. President  Michel Suleiman  assigned the remaining seats.


The Secretary of U.S. Treasury says federal regulators are backing two troubled financial companies in their current form. The statement by Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson appeared to rule out a government takeover of  the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac  companies, the two largest mortgage finance firms as their debts mount and their stock prices plunge. U.S. consumers said they worried about high oil prices, falling home values and the declining  stock market. A gauge of consumer sentiment showed American's views of the economy remaining closely  most pessimistic level  in 28 years. Speaking to reporters on Friday, President Bush said he understands what Americans are going through. "It's a tough economic time for American citizens. There is a way forward to help relieve  some of the pressure on your pocketbooks and I am looking forward to watching this congress respond in a positive way."

 

The United Nations officials say the International Criminal Court may seek an arrest warrant Monday for Sudanese President Omar Al-Bashir  in connection with war crimes in the Darfur region. The court says the chief prosecutor will submit evidence, alleging crimes committed in the region over the last five years. President Al-Bashir was among several top Sudanese government officials that could be named in the case. The United States Friday warned Sudan against retaliating against U.N. peacekeepers, foreign diplomats and others. U.S. State Department spokesman Sean McCormack: "It is our view that all parties involved, including Sudan, need to abide by their international obligations. In the case of Sudan, this means their international obligations vis-a-vis the deployment of peacekeepers, and of course, we deplore any violence that takes place, whoever is responsible for that."

 

Members of Congress are investigating the electrocutions of 12 soldiers in Iraq. Critics say  faulty electrical work done by U.S. contractor KBR is to blame for the deaths. While Senate Democrats held a hearing on the matter Friday, as VOA's Deborah Tate  reports from Capitol Hill.

 

Members of the Senate Democratic Policy Committee heard emotional testimony from the mothers of two soldiers who were electrocuted in Iraq. Cheryl Harris lost her 24-year-old son, Staff Sergeant Ryan Maseth, in January, after a jolt of electricity shot through his body and killed him while he took a shower at his base. The water pump had not been properly grounded. Harris, the mother of three sons serving in Iraq, reacted in disbelief when she was informed of his death. "While I was always prepared to hear one of my sons died by way of a firefight or a roadside bomb, I was dumbstruck to hear in the days following the news of my son's death that he was electrocuted while taking a shower in his living quarters on his army base at the Radwaniyah Palace complex in Baghdad." Harris said she later learned that the U.S.-funded contractor responsible for maintaining American bases in Iraq and Afghanistan, KBR, had inspected the building and found serious electrical problems 11 months before her son was electrocuted. Deborah Tate, VOA news, Capitol Hill.

 

America's major film and television studios said the union representing more than 120,000 actors has turned down the final offer for a new contract. The Alliance of Motion Pictures says they propose three year deal that would have given Hollywood actors salary raises, but the union refused to put it to a vote.

The U.N. Security Council has failed to pass sanctions against Zimbabwei after both China and Russia vetoed the measure. The U.S.-sponsered draft resolution has called for financial and travel restrictions against President Mugabe and 13 others for violence leading up to last month's presidential vote. Zimbabwe said in a letter to the United Nations that international sanctions against the government could lead to a civil war.

The Secretary of the U.S. Treasury says federal regulators are backing two troubled fincial companies in their current form. The statement by Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson appeared to rule out a government takeover of  the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac  companies, the two largest mortgage finance firms as their debts mount and their stock prices plunge.

Speaking to reporters on Friday, President Bush said he understands what Americans are going through."It's a tough economic time for American citizens. There is a way forwad to help relieve  some of the pressure on your pocketbooks and I am looking forward to watching this congress respond in a positive way."

 

The United Nations officials say the Internatinal Criminal Court may seek an arrest warrant Monday for Sudanese President Omar Al-Bashir  in connection with war crimes in the Darfour region. The court says the chief prosecutor will sumbit evidence, alleging crimes committed in the region over the last five years. President Al-Bashir was among several top Sudanese officials that could be named in the case. The United States Friday warned Sudan against retaliating against U.N. peacekeepers, foreign diplomats and others. U.S. State Department spokesman Sean McCormack: "It is our view that all parties involved, including Sudan, need to abide by their international obligations.

The U.N. Security Council has failed to pass sanctions against Zimbabwe/ after both China and Russia vetoed the measure. The U.S.-sponsered draft resolution has called for financial and travel restrictions against President Robert Mugabe and 13 others for violence leading up to last month's presidential vote. Zimbabwe said in a letter to the United Nations that international sanctions against the government could lead to a civil war.


Lebanon has formally formed a national unity government with the job of  solving a political crisis that threatens to aspiring into a civil war. The new government is established by a presidential decree  because the Hezbollah led opposition veto all power and eleven seats of the 30 member cabinet. The majority coalition supported by the west hold 16 seats. President  Michel Suleiman  assigned the remaining seats.


The Secretary of the U.S. Treasury says federal regulators are backing two troubled financial companies in their current form. The statement by Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson appeared to rule out a government takeover of  the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac  companies, the two largest mortgage finance firms as their debts mount and their stock prices plunge. U.S. consumers said they worried about high oil prices, falling home values and the declining  stock market. A gauge of consumer sentiment showed American's views of the economy remaining closely to the most pessimistic level  in 28 years. Speaking to reporters on Friday, President Bush said he understands what Americans are going through."It's a tough economic time for American citizens. There is a way forwad to help relieve  some of the pressure on your pocketbooks and I am looking forward to watching this congress respond in a positive way."

 

The United Nations officials say the International Criminal Court may seek an arrest warrant Monday for Sudanese President Omar Al-Bashir  in connection with war crimes in the Darfur region. The court says the chief prosecutor will sumbit evidence, alleging crimes committed in the region over the last five years. President Al-Bashir was among several top Sudanese officials that could be named in the case. The United States Friday warned Sudan against retaliating against U.N. peacekeepers, foreign diplomats and others. U.S. State Department spokesman Sean McCormack: "It is our view that all parties involved, including Sudan, need to abide by their international obligations. In the case of Sudan, this means their international obligations vis-a-vis the deployment of peacekeepers, and of course, we deplore any violence that takes place, whoever is resposible for that."
