In the news of this day, a suicide bomber in Pakistan has attacked a police emergency course centre in the capital Islamabad. The attack killed two police officers. At least four other people were wounded in the explosion. But the security officers shot the bomber dead before he could enter the main police building. Earlier on Saturday, two aids of Islamic clergymen Sufi Mohammad died in a bomb and gun fire attack. The men were being moved in military vehicles from Malakand to the city of Viershower for questioning. Major General Athar Abbas said one soldier was killed and five others were injured in the incident.

President Obama joined French President Nicolas Sarkozy and other leaders in Normandy for a ceremony marking the sixty-fifth anniversary of D-day. That is when the Allies invaded Germany occupied France during World War Two. Mr. Obama said that the world will not forget the good works of allied soldiers who landed on Normandy Beaches. He said that a time of extreme danger was then and the men who thought they were average found inside themselves the ability to do something extraordinary. The President said they fought to stop the evil of Nazism. .

The United Nations Refugee Agency says Iraq still is not common enough to deal with the return of one and half million Iraqis living outside the country. An Agency spokesman said that the Iraqi government must develop a plan for the safe return of refugees and for people displaced inside the nation. He said the plan should include programs on ways of providing land and rebuilding housing.

Israel has accused Syria of trying to hide evidence of nuclear activities at a complex destroyed by Israeli airplanes back in 2007. Israel’s Atomic Energy Agency made the accusation in a report on Saturday. On Friday the International Atomic Energy Agency said that instance inspectors found new signs of man-made Uranium at a nuclear centre near Demaskas. An IAEA report said that the particles are of a time normally not found there. The Agency also said that Iran continues to expand its Uranium program as international efforts to end it continue. Israel’s atomic Agency report said that other countries are showing weakness that permits North Korea to continue an aggressive nuclear policy. It says Iran is learning from the policies.

Brazilian searchers have found the bodies of two men believed to have been on the Air France Fight that crashed into the Atlantic Ocean on Monday. A Brazilian Air Force officer told reporters that the bodies and some wreckage were found on Saturday. Ramon Borges Cardoso said that searchers found airplane seat and other objects. He said officials will study records to see if the seat was from the Air France flight.

And you are listening to this new in VOA special English.

The number of children killed in a fire at the Day Care Centre in Mexico has reason to thirty-five. Officials say the fire broke out on Friday at the ABC Day Care Centre in the northern city of Hermosillo. More than one hundred forty children were inside the building when the fighting started. Witnesses said fire blocked the only way to the leave the building. One parent used his pick-up truck to break through the wall so children could be rescued. Some of the survivors are in Mexican hospitals, while others were flown to medical centers in the United States. Officials say many victims killed by smoke were under the age of five. It was not clear what caused the fire. Mexico’s President Felipe Calderón has called for an investigation.

Officials in Beirut said nine police officers during an attempt to rescue thirty-eight police hostages at a rural oil centre in the Amazon River area. Twenty-two hostages were rescued. Seven are missing. The hostages were being held by native peoples. On Friday more than thirty people were killed during protests against energy exploration by foreign companies on native land in the Amazon. The demonstrators said police shot hundreds of protesters from helicopters. But the officials said the police were attacked. Protesters have also stopped oil production in the area.

And many of Lebanon’s army and police officers were guarding the streets on Saturday before a disputed parliamentary election. The election, which will be on Sunday, could decide the country’s future. Officials say at least forty thousand police officers have been deployed to keep the peace during the voting. Lebanon’s Interior Minister Ziad Baroud says police are sure that the election will take place without trouble. Mr. Baroud tried to dismiss accusations of unfair actions before the election. In Beirut, acting governor Arcif Birlush said the election centers are ready, but the election officials in some rural areas said the situation is disorganized. The election is between a governing coalition known as “March fourteen” and opposition group led by Hesmula.

And so briefly now here again is the major news of this hour.

President Obama joined French President Nicolas Sarkozy and other leaders in Normandy on Saturday to mark the sixty-fifth anniversary of D-day.
