It is 00:30 universal time, now here is the news in VOA Special English. I'm Christopher Cruise reporting live from Washington.

Pro-government forces clashed with opposition fighters in at least two areas in Libya Saturday. Rebels appear to be losing their control of the eastern town of Ajdabiya. Pro-government forces shelled areas near the town. Witnesses reported seeing rebel vehicles leaving the area. Witnesses also reported a large explosion near Ajdabiya. It is not clear what caused the explosion. The French News Agency AFP reports NATO as saying its forces have not completed any airstrikes in Ajdabiya. Separately, rebels said they have moved closer to the oil town of Brega. The town has changed back and forth between rebel and government control several times since the unrest began. In other violence, the Reuters news agency reports rebel forces as saying eight of their fighters have been killed in clashes with government forces near Misrata.

Egypt's military rulers say they are ready to use force to remove protestors from Cairo's Tahrir Square. They say, in their words, that they want life to go "back to normal". Thousands of the demonstrators remained in the square Saturday. They were refusing to obey an order to leave. They demand the removal of the military council that has ruled Egypt since the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak in February.

Witnesses say Syrian security forces fired on opposition activists in the southern city of Daraa and the port city of Latakia on Saturday. Witnesses in Daraa say security forces fired at mourners attending funerals for some of the victims of unrest Friday. Officials said 36 people were killed on Friday during the anti-government unrest. Earlier Saturday, witnesses said security forces fired at anti-government demonstrators in Latakia in an attempt to end their protest.

Yemeni security forces and opposition activists clashed for a second day in Taiz Saturday. Medical workers say at least 13 people were wounded when security forces fired guns and used tear gas on protestors. The Reuters news agency says the incidents happened after protestors try to break through a police barrier.

Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said Saturday, that Iran has started reloading fuel into a reactor at its Bushehr nuclear power center. Iran had halted the operation in February because of technical concerns. Mr. Salehi said officials help the center would reach an important level of production by May 10. The Russian-built power center's project has been affected by delays for years.

You are listening to the news in VOA Special English coming to your life from Washington.

Palestinians are seeking diplomatic talks to help ease an increase in tensions between Israel and militants in the Gaza Strip. The Palestinian news agency WAFA says President Mahmoud Abbas has called for an emergency meeting of the Arab League. The news agency reports Arab League Secretary General Amr Moussa as saying the meeting will take place on Sunday.

Japan's Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry visited the damaged Fukushima nuclear power center Saturday and met with workers there. Banri Kaieda asked the workers to continue their efforts to prevent more damage to the plant. It was the first visit to the power center by a member of Japan's cabinet since the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. Mr. Kaieda told reporters after his visit that working conditions had improved, but, he said, the crisis is far from over.

Forces loyal to Ivory Coast President Laurent Gbagbo have attacked the headquarters of his political opponent. Reports say soldiers have fired heavy weapons at the Golf Hotel in Abidjan, the country's main city. Ivory Coast's internationally recognized President Alassane Ouattara has been living there since the disputed presidental election in November. Earlier French forces said they were forced to stop trying to move diplomats safely out of Abidian. They said forces loyal to Mr. Gbagbo fired on French helicopters during the operation. The French forces fired back, destroying a tank. France said earlier, that pro-Gbagbo forces shelled the French embassador's home Friday.

Election officials in Nigeria are counting votes from the parliamentary elections on Saturday. Many Nigerians voted, though bombings and other violence happened. Counting began as soon as the election centers closed. Election officials throughout the country showed the ballots and called the results to people who had gathered to make sure the process was fair. Nigeria's election chairman, Attahiru Jega, said the elections seem to have gone well, even though there was violence in some parts of the country. He said he believes about 75 percent of those registered vole did so.

And finally of this hour. In the Netherlands officials say a man began firing a gun in a market near Amsterdam Saturday killing six people. At least, 11 others were wounded, four of them seriously. The attacker then killed himself. The mayor of the town said children were among the victims. Witnesses said the shooter appear to be about 25 years old, and was wearing military or hunting clothes. Official say he is believed to have acted alone. They did not provide his identity, but they said he was known to police.

Now briefly, here again is the major news of the hour in VOA Special English.
