It is zero hours thirty Universal Time. I am Jim Tedder in Washington.

An Internet website has released video recorded pictures of a man who says he is the leader of al-Qaida in Iraq Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. The man says the United States will be defeated in Iraq. The pictures show a man wearing protected military clothing. They are believed to be the first pictures to show al-Zarqawi's face. The pictures had not yet been confirmed to be real.

Also Tuesday Iraqi police said a bomb attack killed 2 people in the Sadr city area of Baghdad; 3 others were wounded.

Egyptian officials say 10 people are being held in connection with the bomb attacks Monday in the city of Dahab. Police now say the attacks killed 18 people including 6 foreigners. Earlier reports said 23 were killed. An interior ministry official says 62 people were wounded. He also said police are attempting to learn if the bombs were exploded with a timing device or by another method.

The supreme leader of Iran says his country is willing to share nuclear technology with other countries. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei told visiting Sudanese President Omar al Bashir that Iran is prepared to share the nuclear experience, knowledge, and technology of its scientists. Their talks came as Iran's top nuclear negotiator warned that Iran would stop cooperating with the United Nations Nuclear Agency if the Security Council places restrictions on Iran.

Four afghan soldiers have died in a bombing near a road as they took part in a joint operation with United States forces against rebels in Konar province.

On Monday an air strike by American-led forces in Helmand province killed 3 suspected Taliban members. And in another clash, five rebels and one policeman were killed in a gun battle in Qandahar province. It happened when Taliban rebels attacked a police security area.

The Sri Lankan military has launched air attacks against Tamil Tiger rebel positions in northeastern Sri Lanka. The military accused the rebels of trying to kill the country's top military commander in a bombing. Earlier Tuesday, the military said a woman wearing a bomb attacked the army's headquarters in the Sri Lankan capital Colombo; at least 8 people were killed including the bomber. The attack wounded about 30 other people including Sri Lanka's army chief. The United States and the United Nations condemned the bombing.

About 3,000 people have demonstrated in East Timor's capital in support of soldiers who lost their army jobs last month. Almost 600 soldiers from western areas have threatened to start a guerrilla war if the government does not settle their dispute with army leaders. The soldiers say they were dismissed unfairly after accusing their commanders of creating poor working conditions. Most of the ousted soldiers are from western areas. They say soldiers from eastern areas receive better treatment. A government spokesman said officials are seeking to deal with the soldiers' accusations.

Media rights groups and Burmese pro-democracy groups are protesting the trial of three Burmese students. Two of the defendants were among a group of students arrested in late March for publishing a pro-democracy poem. The other students were later let go. The third defendant was arrested separately but in connection with the same poem. Reporters Without Borders, the Democratic Voice of Burma, and the Burma Media Association said the students were to go on trial Tuesday. No information is known about the result.

Official remembrances have begun in Ukraine to mark the exact time of the Chernobyl nuclear explosion 20 years ago. Ukrainians are holding ceremonies near the former nuclear center and in towns across the country. The opposition in Belarus has called for a protest; they say the Belarusian government is moving too slowly to clean up affected areas. Nuclear radioactivity from Chernobyl spread over a large part of Belarus. Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday gave awards to workers who clean up the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.

President Bush has announced proposals to help end what he calls America's dependence on oil. In a speech in Washington Tuesday the president called for less use of fuel. He urged American drivers to purchase vehicles called hybrids, which run on a combination of electricity and gasoline. The president also urged congress to cut tax breaks to energy companies. He gave examples of the companies' high profits. He also said energy companies should use profits to invest in the development of new kinds of fuels. Members of the Democratic Political Party made a statement about the president's speech. They said they offer proposals on other kinds of energy months ago.

The Bush Administration has announced plans to investigate the personal history of 400,000 workers at the nation's ports. Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said Tuesday that it is important that individuals who are a security threat not be permitted to work near American ports. The names of port workers will be compared to lists of suspected terrorists. Records will also be examined to make sure people working at ports are working in the United States legally. The Homeland Security Department said the first part of the investigation will be completed by the middle of the year.

Briefly here again is the major news of the hour. An Internet website has released video recorded pictures of a man who says he is the leader of al-Qaida in Iraq Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Egyptian officials say 10 people are being held in connection with the bomb attacks Monday in the city of Dahab. And the supreme leader of Iran says his country is willing to share nuclear technology with other countries. And that's the news in VOA Special English from Washington, Jim Tedder reporting.
