It is 00:30 universal time. I'm Fritzi Bodenheimer in Washington.

Palestinian leaders say there will be no more direct peace talks with Israel until Israel stops building settlements in the occupied West Bank. The officials announced their position Saturday. They acted after President Mahmoud Abbas met with top officials of the Palestine Liberation Organization and Mr. Abbas's Fatah Movement. On Friday, Mr. Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ended separate talks with America's Middle East representative. There has been no apparent progress on issue of building settlements. Mr. Netanyahu reacted by urging Mr. Abbas to continue peace talks without stopping.

Officials are blaming human error for a deadly train crash in Indonesia early Saturday. 36 people died in the crash, more than 30 others were badly injured. Officials say many of the victims were sleeping when a passenger train traveling from Jakarta to Surabaya smashed into a second train. The second train was sitting at a station in the central Java city. The force of the crash pushed several train cars off the track, leaving bodies and wreckage all around. People who live in the area rushed to help survivors. Police say there were hundreds of people on each of the trains.

The government of Nigeria says a man has been detained in South Africa in connection with 2 car bombings in Abuja, the Nigerian capital. 12 people died in the explosions. Saturday, a spokeswoman for the Nigerian secret police said police in Johannesburg, South Africa seized the man named Henry Okah. He is the former leader of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta, which has claimed responsibility for the bombings. The group said the people of the Niger Delta have had their land and resources stolen from them for 50 years.

Officials in Pakistan say 2 suspected American missile strikes have killed at least 16 militants in the northwestern part of the country. Pakistani intelligence officials say missiles hit 2 houses Saturday in the Data Khel village of North Waziristan, near the border with Afghanistan. Elsewhere in the northwest Saturday, police say gunmen killed an Islamic scholar and an assistant in the city of Mardan. The scholar had been the vice chancellor of Swat University. Increasing American missile strikes and recent NATO border raids have raised tension between foreign forces and Pakistan. Officials say there were 21 American missile strikes in September. That is the highest number ever recorded in one month.

You are listening to the news in VOA Special English.

The Iranian President has awarded Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad Iran's highest Medal of Honor. The award recognizes Mr. Bashar's support of Palestinian rights and his resistance of what he calls Israeli aggression. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad presented the award Saturday after he and Mr. Assad held talks on many issues. The issues included Israeli-Palestinian peace process. Iran's state-operated media reported Mr. Ahmadinejad said no country in the area would be safe from Israel if there were not for Syria's efforts. Earlier Saturday, the 2 leaders discussed peace talks between Israelis and Palestinians.

Union leaders in France say almost 3 million people demonstrated in cities across the nation Saturday. They are protesting plans to raise the country's retirement age. Union officials say large crowds at more than 200 gatherings show opposition to the plan is growing. But official crowd estimates the French government were much lower.

A coalition of United States labor and civil rights groups demonstrated in Washington Saturday to call attention to a number of causes. The One Nation Working Together gathering also was held in reaction to recent events held by conservatives. Thousands of people marched around the United States capital and on the national mall and a way to the Lincoln Memorial. Causes represented included the environment, labor rights and rights for homosexuals. Last month, the conservative Tea Party Movement held gatherings in several United States cities.

Voters in Brazil will choose a new president Sunday. President Luiz Inacio Lula Da Silva and ruling party candidate Dilma Rousseff made a final campaign trip Saturday through a town near Sao Paulo. Ms. Rousseff is the choice of Mr. Da Silva to follow him in office. She is president's former top adviser. Public opinion studies show that Ms. Rousseff could win more than 50% of the vote. That would be enough to prevent a second election against the main opposition candidate, Jose Serra. Mr. Serra is the former governor of Sao Paulo.

Paraguayan President Fernando Lugo has been rushed to hospital in Brazil for treatment of a life-threatening infection. Mr. Lugo left Paraguay Saturday for Brazil. Doctors in Paraguay said he has a throat infection that could leak fluid into his lungs. The president began treatment in August for cancer.

Briefly, here again is the major news of the hour.

Palestinian leaders say there will be no more direct peace talks with Israel until Israel stops building settlements in the West Bank. Officials are blaming human error for a deadly train crash in Indonesia. And the government of Nigeria says a man has been detained in South Africa in connection with 2 car bombings in Abuja, the Nigerian capital.

That's the news in VOA Special English. I'm Fritzi Bodenheimer in Washington.
