It is now 23:30 universal time and here is the news in Special English from the Voice of America. I'm Robert Cohen in Washington.

Pakistani intelligence officials say a suspected American missile attack has killed sixteen suspected militants. The officials say the militants included a foreign born Al-Qaeda leader. Pakistani news reports said Al-Qaeda leader Abu Ahmad was among the dead after the Saturday morning missile attack in the North Waziristan tribal area. The attack came the same day that Pakistan's Foreign Minister announced that American Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will visit Islamabad in July.

Afghan officials say a NATO air attack in eastern Afghanistan has killed five civilians including three children. Officials say the attack happened early Saturday in the Musa Khel area of Khost province. NATO says Afghan and international forces had carried out air strikes during operations against Haqqani (哈卡尼组织)militants along the border of Khost and Paktia provinces. It's said that the forces are examining the report about injured civilians and will accept full responsibility if civilians were accidently hurt.

A leading critic of Rwandan President Paul Kagame was shot and wounded Saturday in South Africa. General Kayumba Nyamwasa was taken to a hospital in Johannesburg for medical care. General Nyamwasa is the former chief of staff of the Rwandan Army. He lives in exile in South Africa. His wife said a gunman shot her husband in the stomach. Rosette Nyamwasa told Voice of America that she believes her husband's condition is good. She says she suspects the government of Rwanda is responsible for the shooting. South African police are investigating.

Officials in Yemen say gunmen wearing military clothing carried out a deadly attack against country's intelligence services in Aden on Saturday. Eleven people were killed. The gunmen were able to escape with several prisoners. Officials said the gunmen fought their way into an intelligence office and detention center. The attackers were carrying guns and small bombs. Yemen's official news agency says seven security officers, three women and one child were killed. At least nine others were wounded. Yemeni officials said they believe the gunmen have links to Al-Qaeda.

Turkish military planes have launched air raids against suspected Kurdish rebel positions inside northern Iraq. The air raids come after fighting between soldiers and militants killed at least twenty three people. Turkish military officials say fighting began early Saturday when militants with the Kurdistan Workers' Party known as PKK attacked an army base near Semdinli. The town is close to the Iraqi border. The military says at least nine soldiers and twelve rebels died. A buried bomb killed two other soldiers. The soldiers were involved in an operation to capture Kurdish rebels in the area.

You are listening to the news in VOA Special English.

Officials in Kyrgyzstan have charged a human rights activist with inciting violence. Amnesty International (国际特赦组织)says it is calling for his release. Amnesty says Azimzhan Askarov was arrested for gathering evidence of abuses during fighting between Kyrgyz and ethnic Uzbeks in southern Kyrgyzstan. Mr. Askarov had accused Kyrgyzstan's military of helping the attackers. Two thousand people died in the fighting and hundreds of thousands of Uzbeks fled their homes. The government said Mr. Askarov was charged with inciting ethnic hatred, rioting and urging disobedience. Rights Organization say they believe he has been severely beaten since his arrest on Tuesday.

The BP Company says one of its oil containment systems is operating again at a leaking well in the Gulf of Mexico. A company official says BP stopped the work late Friday to fix a problem with the fire prevention equipment. The energy company says the crew shut down a heat reducing device for cleaning. BP also says lightning storms moving through the area prevented the system from restarting sooner. Another ship, the Q-four-thousand, kept operating during the shutdown. That ship burns off oil and gas collected from the leaking well. Government estimates say up to sixty thousand containers of oil may be leaking from the well every day. oil may be leaking from the well every day.

President Barack Obama welcomed China's announcement Saturday that it plans to ease exchange rate restrictions on China's money. Other leaders and the head of the International Monetary Fund also praised China's decision. Mr. Obama said the Chinese Central Bank decision will help protect the world economic recovery. Other countries have been pressing China to left Yuan rise in value to help cut world economy in balances. The United States, for example, has a large trade deficit with China.

And supporters of Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi, around the world, have celebrated her sixty-five birthday. The celebrations came among many renewed causes for her release from house arrest. World leaders mark the event with praise for Aung San Suu Kyi.

Now briefly, here again is the major news of the hour.

Pakistani intelligence officials say a suspected American missile attack has killed sixteen suspected militants. Afghan officials say a NATO air attack in eastern of Afghanistan has killed five civilians. And in Yemen, officials say gunmen wearing military clothing attacked the country's intelligence services in Aden on Saturday.

And that's the news in VOA Special English coming to you from Washington D.C.

这篇就几个地方,嘿嘿

1Officials in Yemen say gunmen wearing military clothing carried out a deadly attack against country's intelligence services in Aden on Saturday.

感觉有个theagainst the country’s。。。

2The air raids come after fighting between soldiers and militants killed at least twenty three people.

这句比较诡异,come killed使句子在语法上讲不通啊,会不会播音员读错了,漏读了,要是在killed前边加个and就好了。

也可能是after a fighting,搞不懂

3Other countries have been pressing China to left Yuan rise in value to help cut world economy in balances.

这个left我也感觉是let530号的那篇也有个你感觉是left我感觉是let的地方,嘿嘿

in balances在这里怎么看也讲不通,我一开始也觉得是in balances,想可能问题出在cut上,找来找去,最后发现inbalance这个词,见http://www.engkoo.com/#inbalance,但是在词典里查不到这个词,网上也不大常用,如果inbalance(不平衡)这个词对的话,就符合语境了,搞不懂

4And supporters of Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi, around the world, have celebrated her sixty-five birthday.

sixty-five65th吧,笔误吧

5Afghan officials say a NATO air attack in eastern of Afghanistan has killed five civilians.

要是有of的话语法上讲不通,可能没有of,听着也像没有

 

这篇就这些,烦请Libra指教哦

亲爱的orihelion,你指出的本人的错误非常正确,一个一个来:

1 、Officials in Yemen say gunmen wearing military clothing carried out a deadly attack against the country's intelligence services in Aden on Saturday.

你说感觉有"the",的确,很清晰的" the "就在那里,可我把它忽略了,呜呜呜!

2 、 The air raids come after a fighting between soldiers and militants killed at least twenty three people.

第一,fighting 前面是漏了"a",播音员跟after连读了。

第二,咱们商量一下这句,我觉得括号中的内容是raids的后置定语,主体结构为:The air raids killed at least 23 people.

试着翻译一下:军队和武装分子交火后的空袭造成至少23人死亡。 这样解释不知是否OK?

3 、 Other countries have been pressing China to left let the Yuan rise in value to help cut world economy in balances economic imbalances.

第一,"let the" 错听成left了,不应该啊!

第二,说实话,in balances 我当时也没看懂,放在句子里与cut 搭配也不通。直到今天看到你指出这里有问题,再听才发现有两个严重错误,一是economy应为economic,形容词形式,二是in balances 应为imbalances,失衡的意思。这样cut would economic imbalances就顺理成章了,削减世界经济的失衡,对吗?

4 、And supporters of Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi, around the world, have celebrated her sixty-five sixty-fifth birthday.

呜呜,不是笔误,是严重的低级错误,当时听这里还觉得奇怪,five为什么念成[fif],根本没往序数词形式这方面想,不过这个错误倒是提醒自己,还是用英文听写数字,更能检查听写是否正确。

5 、Afghan officials say a NATO air attack in eastern of Afghanistan has killed five civilians.

对!没有"of",之所以听着有 [əf] 这个音,是被eastern 的尾音[n]Afghanistan 的头两个字母[aef] 连读后造成的困扰。

再次感谢orihelion的指教,你这种认真执着的精神非常值得我学习!

也许有些人会认为抠诸如"a"、 "the"这些细节的地方太较真儿了,不过我觉得恰恰是这些小词儿最困扰自己,最难捕捉住,最容易被忽略,也是最锻炼听力的。你在这些细节的处理上很细腻,判断也很准确,继续加油啊!

多谢Libra的积极互动,哈哈。

我觉得小词a,an,the等是有意义的,并不是可有可无,如果认为可有可无,说明英语功力还欠一些火候,嘎嘎。这些小词(冠词、介词)是一些弱读顽固份子,不过体会其中的连读艺术也是一种乐趣,如果再掌握这一手艺,说出来的英语硬度就会大大降低,更好听的,呵呵

下面再进一步探讨下哈

2 、 The air raids come after a fighting between soldiers and militants killed at least twenty three people.

你说“括号中的内容是raids的后置定语,主体结构为:The air raids killed at least 23 people. ”

我觉得也是这样的,但是这样的话come的形式就不对了,应该是coming吧,但是听起来肯定不是coming。

除了我第一次说的and killed,还有一种可能就是...raids that come after...,但是听上去也不是。

会不会是播音员犯错误了,他毕竟也是人啊,说不定因为这个错误被罚扣工资了呢,哈哈哈

3 、 Other countries have been pressing China to left let the Yuan rise in value to help cut world economy in balances economic imbalances.

第一,"let the" 错听成left了,不应该啊!

第二,说实话,in balances 我当时也没看懂,放在句子里与cut 搭配也不通。直到今天看到你指出这里有问题,再听才发现有两个严重错误,一是economy应为economic,形容词形式,二是in balances 应为imbalances,失衡的意思。这样cut would economic imbalances就顺理成章了,削减世界经济的失衡,对吗?

是的,但不知怎么就把inbalance写上了,还一本正经的挂了个inbalance的链接,可能是查来查去就迷糊了,看来查完还要好好回归听力录音来检验。

从你的这两条回答中看到你的进步非常明显啊,今天的你就是明天的我,努力就有收获,人人都能成功,哈哈

orihelion,你的语法基本功比我强很很很多!本人听写中好多错误都是你通过语法分析指正出来的,真的非常非常感谢!

特别是那个迷惑人的imbalance,要不是你的质疑,in balance不知要搅和自己多长时间呢,呵呵。

咱们再商量一下这句吧:come after a fighting 中的come,如果理解为单词的完成时态,而不是一般时态,作定语修饰raids

是否合适些呢?

至于播音员念错的情况的确是有滴,不过时态错误应该很少吧?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
献丑了,我从你那里学到的东西更多啊,不过大家总是要感恩的,多说谢谢有益身心健康,哈哈
这一句,若come是完成时,那么就得理解为被动时态了,即raids were come或者raids have been come,做定语要省略be动词,就成了...raids come after..., 但come是不及物动词,不会有什么东西被发生或被来的说法,不可能是被动的呀。
我体会你的意思是说raids是在fighting后发生的,而且是过去的事情,已经完成,即raids came after a fighting...但这种情况下把这个主谓结构转换为定语后置结构的话就是应该用raids coming agter...因为这里是没有be动词的。虽然这样子看不出来是过去发生的,只能看出时间上的前后关系,但通过整个句子可以看出是过去的事情,也不会妨碍表达。你可以看一下这里http://www.engkoo.com/#coming%20after的第7、9个例句。
嘿嘿要是能联系一下那个播音员就好了
