Senior advisors to the American President-elect Barack Obama say the economic stimulus package under preparation should be much bigger than earlier expected. His aides have indicated a likely sum of several hundred billion dollars. It comes as Barack Obama prepares to formally announce his economic team. Sebastian Usher reports.

 

The comments from Barack Obama’s economic team are aimed at getting the message cross that the new administration will hit the ground running when it takes over in January. And that its economic stimulus plan may have to be as big as the recent 700-billion-dollar financial bailout. The two-year stimulus plan will be aimed at saving or creating some two and half million jobs. During the election campaign, Mr. Obama said it would cost 175 billion dollars. But on Sunday, senior Democrat senator Charles Schumer said that between 500 and 700 billion dollars might now be needed. A Mr. Obama’s top economics advisor, David Axelrod said it would have to be large enough to cope with a huge problem America is facing.

 

A court in Israel has convicted eight people of involvement in neo-Nazi attacks. The defendants were found guilty of desecrating synagogues and carrying out a string of attacks. Paul Wood reports from Jerusalem.

 

Shock and revulsion swept Israel when the activities of the gang who called themselves, Patrol-36 were first revealed and carried out attacks on religious Jews, the homeless and drug addicts. When the Israeli police raided their homes, they found Nazi uniforms and portraits of Adolf Hitler whose birthday the gang were planning to celebrate. All were descendents of immigrants from the former Soviet Union, many thousands of whom while Israeli do not consider themselves fully Jewish. However one of the eight defendants was the grandson of Holocaust survivors.

 

Voting has been extended in Venezuela to allow tens of thousands of people who have been queuing up for hours to cast their votes in regional elections. Voters are choosing 22 state governors and more than 300 mayors. The poll has been seen as a critical test for President Hugo Chavez who last year lost referendum that would have allowed him to seek reelection indefinitely. Opposition leaders have expressed concern that the extension could lead to possible vote of fraud, but Mr. Chavez dismissed their claims.

In Venezuela, it is impossible for there to be any fraud, impossible. Our electoral system is shielded, from all points of view, previous audit, like no other country in the world.

 

The American pop star Michael Jackson has reached an out of court settlement with the Bahraini prince who had been suing him for seven million dollars. Sheikh Abdulla Bin Hamad Al-Khalifa claimed that Michael Jackson had reneged on a deal to record songs that he’d written, write an autobiography and produced a stage show.
