BBC News with Blerry Gogan.

Finance ministers from the G7 group of rich industrialized countries have announced a five-point plan to counter the world financial crisis. After a hastily arranged meeting in Washington the ministers issued a brief statement saying the current situation calls for urgent and exceptional action. Andrew Walker has the details.

The G7 promised decisive action using all available tools to prevent the failure of key financial institutions, and to take all necessary steps to unfreeze credit markets. And they said they'll ensure banks can raise capital from public as well as private sources. The statement seems to identify the main areas noted by commentators as requiring urgent action but is short on detail. All the main recent proposals made by G7 governments are implicit in the communique but they appear to be options, much will now depend on how each government takes its own plans forward.

The G7 talks came at the end of a week in which stock markets in Europe, Asia and the United States lost as much as 20% of their value. A volatile day in New York on Friday saw the Dow Jones index plunged 10% in early trading before recovering to close just one and a half percent down. European stock markets had closed between seven and nine percent lower, echoing similar falls earlier in Asia.

Members of the State Legislature in Alaska are meeting to decide whether to publish a report into allegations that the Governor Sarah Palin is guilty of abuse of power in connection with a family feud. Sarah Palin, now the vice presidential candidate for the Republican Party, denies any wrongdoing as supporters say the charges are motivated by her political opponents. From the Alaskan capital Anchorage, Rajesh Mirchandani reports.

Behind closed doors, Alaska's Legislative Council is debating the report into whether the state governor abused her power, whether she fired a public official because he would not sack a state trooper who had gone through a bitter divorce with her sister. The complicated trooper-gate report is a thousand pages long and legislators could yet take hours to wade through it.

The Defense Ministry of Peru has blamed the Shining Path guerrilla group for an ambush in which at least 18 people were killed. At least six civilians and 12 soldiers died in the attack on a military convoy. Dan Collyns reports from Lima.

This ambush, the worst in ten years, comes at a time when Peru's military has begun an ambitious plan to eliminate around 300 Shining Path rebels, who work closely with the cocaine traffickers in the region. The soldiers killed in this attack were part of that operation which is focused on the isolated jungle, Ene-Apurimac valley, which is a hotbed for drug traffickers and guerrillas. At the same time, confrontations between Peru's armed forces and the rebel groups, which the authorities call "narco-terrorists", are increasing. That was Dan Collyns reporting from Lima.

This is Blerry Gogan with the latest international news from the BBC.

The United States and India have signed a landmark nuclear agreement which will allow American business to sell nuclear fuel and technology to India. In return, India will permit United Nations inspections at its civilian nuclear plants. Critics of the new deal argue it could stimulate an arms race between nuclear-armed India and Pakistan. From Washington ** reports.

US Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, told those present for the signing that many thought this day would never come, she went on to say that the doubts had now been silenced. This pact has been sometime in the making, three years of negotiations, it reverses three decades of US policy. In 1974, Washington imposed a ban on civilian nuclear trade between the two countries. Now American businesses can enter India's multibillion-dollar nuclear market.

A suicide bomber attack has killed at least 20 people in northwest Pakistan, about 60 were injured. Officials said the attacker had driven an explosive-laden car into a tribal gathering and detonated it. The meeting in the Orakzai region had been called to set up a tribal militia to tackle the Taliban who’ve been operating in the area.

Two aid workers who were kidnapped in Ethiopia have appealed for their freedom during a clandestine meeting arranged by their capturers with journalists in the Somali Capital Mogadishu. The two were working for the medical charity Medecins du Monde when they were seized by Islamist rebels in the Ogaden region of eastern Ethiopia and then moved across the border into Somalia.

This year's Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to the Finnish former President Martti Ahtisaari. The Norwegian Nobel Committee said Mr. Ahtisaari had been an outstanding mediator who for more than three decades had helped resolve complicated conflicts in many parts of the world. It mentioned particularly Kosovo and the Indonesian province of Aceh. Speaking to the BBC, Mr. Ahtisaari said he'd come to believe that every conflict could be settled.

Finance ministers from the G7 Group of rich industrialized countries have announced a five-point plan to counter the world financial crisis. After a hastily arranged meeting in Washington the ministers issued a brief statement saying the current situation calls for urgent and exceptional action. Andrew Walker has the details.

 

The G7 promised decisive action using all available tools to prevent the failure of key financial institutions, and to take all necessary steps to unfreeze credit markets. And they said they'll ensure banks can raise capital from public as well as private sources. The statement seemed to identify the main areas noted by commentators as requiring urgent action but it is short on detail. All the main recent proposals made by G7 governments are in present communiqué but they appear to be options, much will now depend on how each government takes its own plans forward.

 

The G7 talks came at the end of a week which stock markets in Europe, Asia and the United States lost as much as 20% of their value. A volatile day in New York on Friday saw the Dow Jones Index plunged 10% in early trading before recovering to close just one and a half percent down. European stock markets had closed between seven and nine percent lower, echoing similar falls earlier in Asia.

 

Members of the State Legislature in Alaska are meeting to decide whether to publish a report into allegations of the Governor Sarah Palin is guilty of abuse of power in connection with a family feud. Sarah Palin now the vice presidential candidate for the Republican Party denies any wrongdoing as supporters say the charges are motivated by her political opponents. From the Alaskan capital Anchorage, Rajesh Mirchandani reports.

 

Behind closed doors Alaska's Legislative Council is debating the report into whether the state governor abused her power, whether she fired a public official because he would not sack a state trooper who had gone through a bitter divorce with her sister. The complicated trooper-gate report is a thousand pages long and legislators could yet take hours to wade through it.

 

The Defense Ministry of Peru has blamed the Shining Path guerilla group for an ambush in which at least 18 people were killed. At least six civilians and 12 soldiers died in the attack on a military convoy. Dan Collyns reports from Lima.

 

This ambush, the worst in ten years, comes at a time when Peru's military has begun an ambitious plan to eliminate around 3000 Shining Path rebels, who have closely / with the cocaine traffickers in the region. The soldiers killed in this attack were part of that operation which is focused on the isolated jungle in the Ene-Apurimac Valley which is a hotbed for the drug traffickers and guerillas. At the same time confrontations between Peru's armed forces and the rebel groups, which the authorities call "narco-terrorists", are increasing. That was Dan Collyns reporting from Lima.

 

This is Blerry Gogan with the latest international news from the BBC.

 

The United States and India have signed a landmark nuclear agreement which will allow American business to sell nuclear fuel and technology to India. In return, India will permit United Nations’ inspections at its civilian nuclear plants. Critics of the new deal argued it could stimulate an arms race between nuclear- armed India and Pakistan. From Washington ** reports.

 

US Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, told those present for the signing that many thought this day would never come, she went on to say that the doubts have now been silenced. This pact has been sometime in the making, three years of negotiations, it reverses three decades of US policy. In 1974, Washington imposed a ban on civilian nuclear trade between the two countries. Now American businesses can enter India's multibillion-dollar nuclear market.

 

A suicide bomber attack has killed at least 20 people in northwest Pakistan, about 60 were injured. Officials said the attacker had driven an explosive-laden car into a tribal gathering and detonated it. The meeting in the Orakzai region had been called to set up a tribal militia to tackle over / Taliban who’ve been operating in the area.

 

Two aid workers who were kidnapped in Ethiopia have appealed for their freedom during the clandestine meeting arranged by their capturers with journalists in the Somali Capital Mogadishu. The two were working for the medical charity Medicins du Monde when they were seized by Islamist rebels in the Ogaden region of eastern Ethiopia and then moved across the border into Somalia.

 

This year's Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to the Finnish former President Martti Ahtisaari. The Norwegian Nobel Committee said Mr. Ahtisaari had been an outstanding mediator who for more than three decades had helped resolve complicated conflicts in many parts of the world. It mentioned particularly Kosovo and the Indonesian province of Aceh. Speaking to the BBC Mr. Ahtisaari said he'd come to believe that every conflict could be settled.
