And so you have found us here once again at VOA special English at 22:30 universal time in the news of the day

Suicide bombers in Pakistan have killed at least 16 people in Northern Frontier Province. More than 100 others were injured. In one attack police say the attacker in the city of Peshawar throw a small bomb at a crowd outside the bank. The attacker then set off about 100 kg of explosives in his vehicle. The explosion killed at least 10 people. A Taliban commander has warned of further attacks.

Obama administration officials say the United States may not be able to close the Guantanamo Base military prison as early as the President promised. On his first day in office President Obama signed an order to close the detention center for terrorist suspects. But top official say major problems may force the President to miss the appointed day. The administration officials say that they must settle legal issue surrounding the military trial system. They also need to find country’s willing to accept detainees who can be released and present the base in the United States for those who can not be freed.

The President of Iran says his nation's second center for enriching uranium struck what he called “a broke against western powers”. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad returned home on Saturday after attending the opening of the United Nations General Assembly in New York. Mr. Ahmadinejad said that the United States and its allies already regretted criticizing Iran on the existence of the center. On Friday the United States, Britain and France accused Iran’s trying to build the nuclear center in secret. Iran denied that charge.

Palestinian medical workers say that at least 15 Palestinians were wounded on Saturday in Gaza. The workers say that the violence took place when gunfire broke up during a funeral for three militants killed during an Israeli airstrike. They say that Israeli forces along the nearby Gaza border open fire during the services. It is not clear why. The Israeli army plans to close Israeli border with the West Bank late on Saturday on the day before Yom Kippur, the Holies Day for Jews. The military said the closing is for security reasons and will last from midnight on Saturday until midnight Monday local time. Yom Kippur, known as the Day of Atonement started that sun set on Sunday. Observant Jews do not eat for 24 hours and they praise for forgiveness of their wrongdoings.

Venezuela ’s President Hugo Chavez says that South America and Africa will work together to form two great power centers that are free of imperialism. Mr. Chavez spoke from the Caribbean Island of Margarita. He is holding a two-day conference there for leaders from both continents. Nine South American Presidents and 20 African leaders are taking part. President Chavez said that leaders from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean must develop close relations. He said these relations should be needed to answer the strong economic influence of the United States and Europe. He blamed the Europe and United states for much of world’s poverty.

The European Union announced on Saturday that diplomats of member nations who left Honduras will return even as the political crisis there continues. Honduran Police have surrounded the Brazilian Embassy in the capital city, Tegucigalpa . Ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya has been staying at the embassy in order to avoid arrest. The European diplomats left Honduras to protest Mr. Zelaya’s ouster by the temporary government Roberto Micheletti. The EU said the return of diplomats does not mean that the organization recognizes the temporary government.

And you are listening to the news in VOA special English
