BBC News with Sue Montgomery.

President Obama has announced a series of measures aimed at ending America's dependence on foreign oil. He said this was one of the most serious threats the US faced as oil money bankrolled dictators, paid for nuclear proliferation and funded terrorism. Mr. Obama said his plans would create nearly half a million jobs and double the amount of energy produced from alternative sources within three years. James Coomarasamy reports from Washington.

President Obama said he wanted the United States to lead on climate change. In a clear swipe at his predecessor’s skeptical view of global warming, he said his administration would not deny facts but would be guided by them. Mr. Obama is taking practical steps. He’s called on the environmental protection agency to re-examine California’s request to impose its own greenhouse gas emission standards which go further than federal requirements and which have been fought against by car manufacturers.

The new US ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice has said Washington is prepared to engage in direct diplomacy with Iran, but only if it meets the United Nations Security Council’s demand that it suspend uranium enrichment. Ambassador Rice was speaking following talks with the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in New York.

The rival Palestinian factions Fatah and Hamas have held their first direct talks in ten months. Representatives of the groups met in Cairo where Egyptian officials have been mediating with Israel, and trying to promote Palestinian reconciliation. Laura Trevelyan reports.

The Fatah representative at the meeting Azzam Al-Ahmad gave few details, but said the talk was a chance to break the ice. He said both sides would now consult their leaderships about how to take a reconciliation process forward. It's the first direct talks between Fatah and Hamas since March last year when meetings collapsed over demands that Hamas should immediately reverse its takeover of Gaza. Hamas had no comments on the latest talks. It's indicated that its most immediate concern is to consider Israeli proposals for extending the ceasefire in Gaza.

The Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich who is accused of trying to sell the Senate seat vacated by Barack Obama failed to appear in the opening day of his impeachment trial, saying he wouldn’t get a fair hearing. Instead, he was interviewed in several TV and radio shows, insisting he’d done nothing wrong.

The Vatican has said that comments by recently rehabilitated bishop that no Jews were gassed in the Holocaust are unacceptable and a violation of Church teaching. Last week, Pope Benedict lifted the excommunication of British Bishop Richard Williamson, who has denied that six million Jews were murdered during World War Ⅱ. Since then, the Vatican has stressed that the lifting of excommunication by no means implies support for Bishop Williamson’s views. A front-page article in the Vatican newspaper says that the holocaust denial is a lie.

Islamist insurgents in Somalia have taken control of large areas of Baidoa, a key stronghold of the transitional government, hours after its Ethiopian allies pulled out. Reports say the al-Shabab militants seized the airport, parliament building and presidential palace from pro-government militias. The last Ethiopian troops left Somalia on Sunday, two years after they entered the country to help the transitional government fight Islamist militants. Mohammad Olad Hassan reports from Mogadishu.

According to the local residents I spoke to on the phone, the situation of Baidoa has been very tense since this morning. After the last Ethiopian troops pulled out from the town overnight, the town has apparently fallen into al-Shabab, violence has been rampant, armed tribal militias and government soldiers could be seen carrying guns separately in the streets. Explosions and gunfire could be heard, so far, four people were killed and nearly 20 others were wounded in the violence.

A senior United Nations spokesman in Sri Lanka Gordon Weiss says UN staff have seen the bodies of about ten civilians killed in the shelling around Mullaitivu, a day after the town was taken by government forces. He told the BBC it wasn’t clear which side the shells had come from. Mr. Weiss added the civilians were suffering terribly as the fighting intensified.

They are really beaten down and worn out at the stage, you know, some of them have had to move 12, 15 times by carrying small children with them, a large proportion of the population are in fact children. They are tired. They are short of food.

Liberia's President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has declared a state of emergency in response to a plague of crop-destroying armyworms. She said all possible resources would be mobilized to fight the caterpillars which have already spread to neighboring Guinea and are now in the Sierra Leone border.

Mr. Obama is taking practical steps. He's called on the Environmental Protection Agency to reexamine California's request to impose its own greenhouse gas emission standards which go further than federal requirements and which have been fought against by car manufacturers.

 

The new US ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice has said Washington is prepared to engage in direct diplomacy with Iran, but only if it meets the UN Security Council's demand that it suspend uranium enrichment. Ambassador Rice was speaking following talks with the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in New York.

 

The rival Palestinian factions Fatah and Hamas have held their first direct talks in ten months. Representatives of the groups met in Cairo where Egyptian officials have been mediating with Israel and trying to promote Palestinian reconciliation. Bob Trevelyan reports.

 

The Fatah representative at the meeting Azzam al-Ahmed gave few details but said the talks were chance to break the ice. He said both sides would now consult their leaderships about how to take reconciliation process forward. It's the first direct talk between Fatah and Hamas since March last year when meetings collapsed over demands that Hamas should immediately reverse its takeover of Gaza. Hamas had no comment on the latest talks. It's indicated that its most immediate concern is to consider Israeli proposals for extending the ceasefire in Gaza.

 

The Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich who is accused of trying to sell the senate seat vacated by Barack Obama failed to appear in the opening day of his impeachment trial saying he wouldn't get a fair hearing. Instead he was interviewed in several TV and radio shows insisting he had done nothing wrong.

 

The Vatican has said that comments by a recently rehabilitated Bishop that no Jews were gassed in the Holocaust are unacceptable and a violation of Church teaching. Last week, Pope Benedict lifted the excommunication of a British Bishop Richard Williamson, who has denied that 6 million Jews were murdered during World War II. Since then, the Vatican has stressed that the lifting of the excommunication by no means implies support for Bishop Williamson's views. A front-page article in the Vatican newspaper says that Holocaust denial is a lie.

Islamist insurgents in Somalia have taken control of large areas of Baidoa, a key stronghold of the transitional government hours after its Ethiopian allies pulled out. Reports say the al-Shabab militants seized the airport, parliament building and presidential palace from pro-government militias. The last Ethiopian troops left Somalia on Sunday, 2 years after they entered the country to help the transitional government fight Islamist militants. Mohammed Olad Hassan reports from Mogadishu.

 

According to the local residents I spoke to on the phone, the situation of Baidoa has been very tense since this morning after the last Ethiopian troop is pulled out from the town overnight. The town has apparently fallen into power vacuum. Violence has been rampant. Armed tribal militias and government soldiers could be seen carrying guns separately in these streets. Explosions and gun fire could be heard. So far 4 people were killed and nearly 20 others were wounded in the violence.

 

A senior United Nations spokesman in Sri Lanka Gordon Weiss says UN staff has seen the bodies of about 10 civilians killed in shelling around Mullaitivu, a day after the town was taken by government forces. He told the BBC it was not clear which side the shells had come from. Mr. Weiss added that civilians were suffering terribly as the fighting intensified.

 

"They are really beaten down and worn out at this stage. You know, some of them have had to move 12, 15 times. They are carrying small children with them. A large proportion of the population are in fact children. They are tired. They are short of food."

 

Liberia's President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf has declared a state of emergency in response to a plague of crop-destroying army worms. She said all possible resources would be mobilized to fight the caterpillars which have already spread to neighboring Guinea and now on the Sierra Leone border.

In a clear swipe at his predecessor’s skeptical view of global warming, he said his administration would not deny facts but would be guided by them.

If you take a swipe at a person or an organization, you criticize them, usually in an indirect way.

In a swipe at the president, he called for an end to `begging for aid around the world'.


The Fatah representative at the meeting Azzam Al-Ahmad gave / few details, but said the talk was a chance to break the ice.

参加会议的法塔赫代表Azzam Al-Ahmad没有透露具体细节,但表示此次协商对于打开僵局是一次机会。
