WORLD NEWS – May 9th, 2009

Written by the Voice of America

And you have found us here in VOA Special English at twenty-three hours thirty universal time.

In the news of this day, President Obama will travel to Egypt next month to give a speech to the Moslem world. Mr. Obama has promised to seek a new relationship with Moslems around the world, one that is based on shared interests and respect. He also will visit Germany and France during his trip. Many Moslems have welcomed some of Mr. Obama’s actions since he took office including closing the Guantánamo military prison and banning torture.

Pope Benedict arrived in Jordan on Friday for a week-long trip to the Middle East. The Woman Catholic Church leader expressed his deep respect for Islam. He also praised Jordan’s efforts in support of Middle East peace and talks among religious leaders. The Pope told a gathering in Amman that religious freedom is a very important human right. During his stay in Jordan, Pope Benedict will meet with Moslem leaders, visit an Islamic center as well as Christian Holy places.

Afghanistan’s President Hamid Karzai is demanding an end to American air strikes. He says the war against terrorism should not be fought in Afghanistan’s villages. Mr. Karzai made the comments during a discussion on the Cable News Network Television. Mr. Karzai said that an Afghan delegation has confirmed that the American air strikes in Farah Province killed more than one hundred civilians earlier this week. American officials say about fifty people were killed and that most of them were militants. American officials also say that Taliban fighters were responsible for some of the civilian deaths. Mr. Karzai disputes that claim.

In Pakistan, Major General Athar Abbas promised on Friday to force militants from a northwestern valley. The army spokesman announced the military offensive as thousands of civilians fled from fighting there. He said that more than one hundred forty Taliban fighters have been killed in the Swat Valley since Thursday along with seven soldiers. Witnesses say some civilians also died. The number of dead has not been confirmed.

Venezuela has seized the property of sixty fuel-related companies including an American based oil services business called Williams Companies. The Venezuelan government announced on Friday that the property was seized under a law passed on Thursday by the National Assembly. The move increases the government control of Venezuelan’s oil industry. Workers at the seized companies are to become employees of Venezuelan’s state oil company. The Williams Companies said on a statement that Venezuela’s government has taken control of two natural gas operations. The statement also said that Venezuela owed the Williams Companies millions of dollars in services.

The United States has extended economic restrictions against Syria for another year. A spokesman at the American State Department said that President Obama felt the restrictions were necessary because of serious problems with the Syrian government. The United States has accused Syria of supporting terrorism. It also has expressed concern about Syria’s part in the rebellion in Iran. 

And you’re listening to this news in VOA Special English.

At least three people have been arrested in Lebanon on suspicion of spying for Israel. A security official says the suspects were detained in a separate raid in Southern Lebanon. The official says security forces were searching the home of two men who are brothers. It was not clear whether officials believe the suspects have ties to others who were arrested recently on spying and related charges.

The United States says trade restrictions and fearful buying caused the price of rice to rise too quickly last year. The diet of half the world’s population is based on rice. Researchers at the American Department of Agriculture say record high prices for oil also cause the price of rice to increase. The price increase was linked to the lack of supply. Rice prices were three times higher by April 2008 than they have been five months earlier in November of 2007.

Canada is reporting its first death of a person infected with the virus called Swine Influenza of H1N1. The Chief Medical Officer in Alberta said the dead woman had other health problems. The official said it is not yet clear how the Swine Flu helped to bring about her death.

Mexico has confirmed one more death from the virus that brings the number of influenza H1N1 death in Mexico to forty-five. The United States has confirmed two deaths from the virus.

And the European Union has signed an agreement with four countries to build new natural gas lines. The new fuel supply will reduce the EU’s energy dependence on Russia. Top EU officials and leaders of gas-rich Azerbaijan and Egypt as well as Georgia and Turkey signed the deal on Friday at a conference in Par in the Czech Republic. Officials from Kazakhstan Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan also were present but they did not sign the agreement. Representatives from Iraq were expected to the meeting but nor Iraqi is attentive.

And so briefly again the major news of the hour. President Obama will travel to Egypt next month to give a speech to the Moslem world. President Obama will travel to Egypt next month to give a speech to the Moslem world.
