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.

 

Leaders of the world's largest economies confronted a global financial system in disarray today, as they gathered in Washington to cope with a plunging stock market, a frozen credit market, and fears the world is headed for a recession. Key European stock market indexes were down between 9 and 10 percent in afternoon trading. In Russia, financial regulators suspended trading on the country's two main indexes until further notice. Japan's Nikkei Index was off nearly 10 percent at the close, the biggest one-day loss since 1987. Officials from the Group of Seven industrialized nations will meet with President Bush on Saturday. Mr. Bush today commented on the financial crisis.

 

"We've seen that problems in the financial system are not isolated to the United States. They're also affecting other nations around the globe. So we're working closely with partners around the world to ensure that our actions are coordinated and effective. Tomorrow I'll meet with the finance ministers from our partners in the G7, and the heads of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank." President Bush.

 

Fears that the global financial crisis is about to get worse have sent oil prices falling to less than $80 a barrel. The price of crude oil for future delivery fell more than $7 to $79.57 a barrel during trading in New York today before easing upward again. Oil prices have now lost more than 10 percent just this week, and are down more than 45% since hitting a record high in July.

 

The Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to former Finnish President Martti Ahtisaari for his work negotiating peaceful solutions to conflicts from Namibia to Kosovo. The Norwegian Nobel Committee made the announcement. "The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided to award the Nobel Peace Prize for 2008 to Martti Ahtisaari for his important efforts on several continents and over more than three decades to resolve international conflicts."  The committee says the 71-year-old played a significant part in the establishment of Namibia's independence in 1990. More recently he crafted a plan for Kosovo to be granted internationally supervised independence. That plan has now been implemented. He and an organization he founded also worked to facilitate peace in Iraq, Indonesia and Northern Ireland.

 

Pakistani officials say a suicide bomber has killed at least 15 people and wounded dozens of others in one of Pakistan's tribal regions near the Afghan border. Authorities say the bomber attacked a tribal council meeting in Orakzai district, long regarded as the most peaceful of Pakistan's seven semi-autonomous  tribal regions.


NATO has agreed to grant a US request to allow direct attacks against Afghanistan's drug trade. A spokesman for the alliance announced the agreement today. He said it would allow international troops to work with Afghan forces to act against drug facilities that help fund the Taliban insurgency. He said any action will need the approval of all of the involved nations.

 

Turkey's military says it launched air strikes in northern Iraq against Kurdish rebels, who were trying to cross the border. A military spokesman said today the rebels were detected while trying to sneak into Turkey, and that most of them were killed.

 

Israeli police are on high alert after a mixed Jewish-Arab town was hit by ethnic violence. Robert Berger has a report from Jerusalem.

 

About 700 Israeli police have deployed in the historic Mediterranean coastal town of Acre, after clashes between Jews and Arabs damaged dozens of cars and shops. The violence erupted on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, the holiest day on the Jewish calendar. Residents and police say an Arab drove his car through a Jewish neighborhood playing loud music, infuriating Jews observing the solemn Yom Kippur fast. It is customary not to drive in Israel on Yom Kippur. Jews threw stones at the car and beat the man, as word spread about the incident, angry Arabs took to the streets. Since it was a high holy day, police were understaffed and it took a long time to deploy reinforcements. Police finally restored order using tear gas and water cannon. Robert Berger for VOA News, Jerusalem.

 

Taking a brief look at market activities. On Wall Street at this hour, US stock indexes are way down once again. And major Asia-Pacific markets were lower at the close of trade today.
