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.

Stock markets fell sharply around the world today because of fears there's more serious damage to come from a bank credit crisis and a weakening global economy. Fears about the economy also caused oil prices to drop to an eight-month low, less than ninety dollars a barrel during electronic trading in New York. The markets fell despite new pledges from top US and European officials to do what is necessary to restore confidence and stability in the financial system.

South Korea, meanwhile, is taking a lead in creating a prospective pool of money with its neighbors to prevent the worst effects of the American economic situation from spilling over into the region. VOA correspondent Kurt Achin reports.

South Korean President Lee Myung-bak is proposing a joint fund of about 8 billion dollars between South Korea, Japan and China to shield the region from the American credit problems. Lee administration officials are expected to push for the plan on the sidelines of an International Monetary Fund meeting next week. Mr. Lee is scheduled to discuss it in a three-way Beijing summit later this month. South Korea's Finance Minister Kang Man-soo warned a gathering of bankers Monday in Seoul it may take a long time for President Bush's signing of the financial bailout law last week to have positive effects. In the meantime, he's telling banks to get proactive about turning their overseas holdings into dollars that can be lent to South Korean businesses. He is telling the business community not to rely on the government alone. He says banks need to work their way out of the problem. He advises them to raise dollars by selling foreign assets as soon as they can. Kurt Achin, VOA News, Seoul.

Pakistani authorities say a suicide bombing has killed twelve people at the home of an opposition lawmaker in eastern Pakistan. Police official Khadim Hussain says Rashid Akbar Nawani, a member of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's party, was wounded in today's blast at his home in the Bhakkar area in Punjab province. Hussain says the bomb, the bomber blew himself up in the middle of a crowd of the politician's supporters. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.

Sri Lankan police say a suicide bomber killed an opposition leader and at least 26 other people today in the north-central town of Anuradhapura. About eighty people were wounded. Police say the bomber attacked during a ceremony to open the new office of the main opposition United National Party. UNP's leader, former army general Janaka Perera and his wife were among the dead.

An emergency official says an earthquake in southern Kyrgyzstan completely destroyed the village of Nura, killing at least sixty residents and injuring more than one hundred. The Emergency Situations minister says search and rescue operations are under way.

UN High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres warns adverse economic social and political trends are threatening to trigger large-scale displacement if the international community neglects the world's poor. Lisa Schlein reports from the annual UN Refugee Conference in Geneva.

UN High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres says thousands of Africans have fled their homes this year and gone to neighboring countries such as Botswana, Chad, Kenya, South African and Zambia in search of asylum or jobs. He says the work of the UN refugee agency has become more difficult and more expensive. He says expenses have risen from 1. 1 billion dollars in 2006 to 1. 6 billion dollars in 2008. Guterres says high food and energy prices are putting the welfare of refugees seriously at risk. "It would be tragic if the funds available to the humanitarian community as a whole, and UNHCR in particular, were to decline at the very time when the demands made upon us are increasing so dramatically. "


High Commissioner Guterres ends with a stark warning. He notes a hungry man is an angry man. Lisa Schlein for VOA News, Geneva.

United States Supreme Court returned to work today following nearly three and a half months in recess. Cases this session include tobacco advertising and a dispute between the US military and environmentalists.

Brief look at markets. Once again on Wall Street, US stock indexes are way down at this hour.
