Financial regulators in the United States have accused the investment bank Goldman Sachs of fraud related to the collapse of the American housing market in 2007. The security in the exchange commotion is taking civil action against the bank. Mitchell Floray said this report from the floor New York stock exchange.

The security in the exchange commotion alleges the bank sold the investors a financial product based on some private mortgages that was designed to lose value. Goldman Sachs has denied the allegations and says it will defend the fame and its reputation. This is the first time that the US government has explicitly accused one of the Wall Street premier institutions of fraud relating to the collapse of the US housing market.

The prime minister of the Thailand Abhisit Vejjajiva has put the head of the army in charge of national security. As he fights his campaign by opposition protesters demanding that he step down. Mr. Abhisit needed the decision hours after the security forces publicly failed to arrest leaders of the rallies that have paralyzed part of the capital Bangkok for weeks. Clashes last week during protest led more than 20 people dead. From Bangkok, here is Rachel Harvey.

The president said he was appointing the head of the armed forces General Anupong - to take charge of national security in order to stream line operations. A government spokesman contacted by the BBC said the General would be better able to deal with what he called the terrorist threat. He now has the power to make decisions directly, the spokesman said. The move comes amid speculation that the security forces might be planning another operation to evict the protesters from the sites they currently occupying in the commercial heart of Bangkok.

Aviation experts have warned that a drifting cloud of volcanic ash from Iceland will continue to cripple air transport in much of Europe at the weekend. The European air travel agency said there would be further significant disruption. Britain has extended the closure of much of its air space until medium Saturday. The International Air Transport Association said the disruption was costing the airlines more than 200million dollars a day.

The number of people known to have died in an earthquake in northwest China has risen to more than 1100 with over 400 others still missing. Rescuers fear the figure is likely to rise again. Heavy earth moving equipment has been used in the search for trapped survivors. In the worst time of Jiegu a local official told the BBC that they badly needed supplies.

The security situation is good in the town. There is no looting or rioting. Security forces are out of control. The main priority for us is relief work to rescue people. We urgently need tons of food and drinking water. We urgently need these supplies.

The BBC investigation has found months before a Goregian luger crashed and died during a training session of this year's Vancouver Winter Olympics. Several top athletes warned the organizers that the luge tracks were dangerous. Olympic officials initially said that the death of the luger Nodar Kumaritashvili was due to human error. Rebecca Catsby reports.

21 year old luger Nodar Kumaritashvili was killed when he crashed on the final bent during training. He was thrown from the track at more than 100 km an hour and collided with a still pillar. Test athletes and all three of the sliding sports bobsleigh, skeleton and luge say they told the organizers that the track was too fast too difficult and that less experienced athletes would be the most vulnerable to the accidents. A Spokesman for the international bobsleigh federation told the BBC that some changes were made in response to concerns and that safety of athletes was absolutely paramount.

Italy says two of its citizen who were kidnapped last year in - by al-Qaeda have been freed. The Italian government said the hostages were released after intense diplomacy and were taking to a safe place.

Reports from Iran say the former president Mohamed al-Khatani had been bared from leading the country to attend a nuclear disarmament conference in the Japanese city Hiroshima. Mr al-Khatani lawyers told the BBC that there's been no legal order that Mr. al-Khatani decided not to travel after receiving what he called official advice to cancel his trip.

And finally while volcanic ash from the Iceland is causing unprecedented disruption to air travel across Europe, a taxi driver in Moscow has seen it as a business opportunity. He's offering to drive people to any location in Europe for a fee of 1300 dollars. He said for a person who really wanted to get to somewhere that was a reasonable price to ask.
