It's 15:00 hours, Universal Time, and here is the news from the Voice of America.

I’m David Deforest from the VOA News Center in Washington.

 

President Bush says the struggle to approve a government rescue program for the troubled financial sector is not over. He warned that economic damage will be painful and lasting if a plan is not passed. A proposed 700-billion-dollar rescue measure was defeated in the US House of Representatives on Monday. Speaking before the US markets open today, Mr. Bush said the country is in an urgent situation, and the consequences grow worse for every day we do not act. “I’m disappointed by the outcome. But I assure our citizens, and citizens around the world, that this is not the end of the legislative process.” Mr. Bush said top officials are working with Congress to craft a measure that can pass. Tom Rivers has a report on reaction that European markets are having to the turmoil in the America.

 

After seeing the US House of Representatives reject the 700-billion-dollar rescue deal. European markets strive with difficulty to find a meaningful direction. Sharp declines were seen in the opening but by mid-day some of that lost ground had been crawled back. Despite the midday comeback, however, the battered financial sector in Europe took steps to stem losses. Belgian-French financial services group Dexia got much needed boost of 9.18 billion dollars from public shareholders to help and fight the global credit crisis. Ireland also offered to guarantee all bank deposits for two years to improve bank’s access to funds on international markets. British Prime Minister Gordon Brown says the failure to pass the US bailout plan is being felt far beyond American choice.“I think it is true to say, however, that in recent times, we in Britain have taken decisive steps to ensure the stability of our system.” Markets in Europe are now trying to focus on what the next step will be for rescue-related legislation. Tom Rivers for VOA News, London.

 

The US presidential candidates are proposing temporary measures to ease the economic crisis. Both Democratic Senator Barack Obama and Republican Senator John McCain suggested today that the amount of bank deposits guaranteed by the government be increased from 100,000 to 250,000 dollars per account. McCain and Obama urge lawmakers to keep working on a financial rescue plan.

 

Indian authorities say nearly 150 people are dead after a stampede at a Hindu temple in western India. Authorities say scores of other people were injured in the incident at the Chamunda temple in the town of Jodhpur. Thousands of worshippers were crowded into the temple, inside a historic hillside fort, to mark the start of a Hindu festival. Officials say a panic broke out when some people slipped and fell on a narrow path leading to the temple.

 

Afghan President Hamid Karzai says he is willing to hold peace talks with Taliban insurgents. Mr. Karzai today told reporters in Kabul he had been in regular contact with the King of Saudi Arabia for two years to facilitate talks between the Afghan government and Taliban leader Mullah Omar. Speaking at calling the insurgent leader his brother, President Karzai urged Omar to stop killing fellow Afghans and return home to work for the peace and security of the country. Mr. Karzai promised to personally protect Omar from US and NATO forces operating in Afghanistan if he will agree to negotiations.

 

Washington’s main envoy in talks aimed at getting rid of North Korea’s nuclear weapons is in South Korea. He plans to visit Pyongyang tomorrow to discuss the North’s recent steps toward resuming activity at its main nuclear facility. Kurt Achin has a report.

 

Soon after landing at South Korea's Incheon Airport Tuesday, Assistant Secretary of State Christopher Hill confirmed he will be heading to the North Korean capital Pyongyang on Wednesday. He says his main agenda is getting an agreement to ensure the nuclear declaration  North Korea made earlier this year is accurate.“We need to make sure that we are gonna be able to verify their declaration so let’s see if we can come up with measures that  will allow us to verify the declaration.”North Korea issued a declaration of its nuclear activities as part of a broader six-nation deal reached last year that gradually rewards the North for steps toward getting rid of its nuclear weapons. Senior American and South Korean officials say at the time North Korea made a clear verbal agreement to agree on a mechanism for confirming the accuracy of its declaration. For example, verification steps might include random access by inspectors to suspected nuclear sites. Kurt Achin, VOA News, Incheon, South Korea.
