It is 00:30 universal time, here is the news in Special English.

North Atlantic Treaty Organization airstrikes shook the Libyan capital Tuesday. The alliance said NATO attacked a military command and control center in Tripoli. The center was set to be controlled by pro-government forces. Witnesses say one of the bombs hit a building used by Libya's military intelligence agency. NATO officials again denied that Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi is a target. But one airstrike produced smoke from what appeared to be one of his buildings. In Misrata, a rebel military spokesman said opposition forces have forced government troops about 15 kilometers farther away from the city.

Syrian officials have carried out more raids across the country. Witnesses heard heavy gunfire in the Damascus area community of Maadamiyeh on Tuesday. At the same time, soldiers went from house to house in the area. Officials have sent in tanks and cut communications in several Syrian cities, including Maadamiyeh, Homs and Banias. Rights groups say at least 9,000 people have arrested in Syria since anti-government demonstrations began in March.

American Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner says there have been hopeful changes in China's economic policies. Mr. Geithner spoke Tuesday after two days of talks in Washington between China and the United States. He said American officials urged China to do more to move from an export economy to one that serves its own national market. He urged Chinese officials to not limit the value of Chinese money, but to permit it to gain value equal to the country's strong economy.

In Taiwan, President Ma Ying-jeou is accusing China of pressuring the World Health Organization to recognize Taiwan as a province of China. The Taiwanese leader told reporters Tuesday, he wished to express his protest to China. He urged China not to return to the old ways but to continue better relations with Taiwan. Mr. Ma's government was surprised on Monday, when an opposition lawmaker showed what she said was a World Health Organization document. It's said the island should be described as the Taiwan province of China. Taiwan has been self-governing since 1949. China has said the two must be reunited, and that it will use force if necessary.

India is planning to hire 10,000 teachers from Taiwan to teach the Mandarin Chinese language in its high schools. Taiwan's Education Minister Wu Ching-ji says Indian officials made the proposal during a meeting last week. The education minister also says Taiwan was set up a committee to train teachers going to India.

A human rights group says Bangladesh is failing to stop killings by police. Human Rights Watch released a report Tuesday from their New York headquarters. It said the Bangladesh government was not honorring its promise to end abuse by the crime fighting group called the Rapid Action Battalion. The report says nearly 200 people have been killed in the crime fighting group's operations since 2009. No officers have faced trial for the deaths.

You are listening to the news in VOA Special English.

An American official says Pakistan will soon let American investigators question three wives of Osama bin Laden. Pakistan has been holding the two Saudi women and a Yemeni woman, and their children since the American raid on the al-Qaida leader's home in Abbottabad. American officials said the three women could provide important details about al-Qaida. Pakistan's Foreign Ministry said Tuesday that it has yet to receive an official request from the United States to talk to Osama bin Laden's family members. Other officials said no decision had been made on the issue.

Officials in Afghanistan say hundreds of Taliban militants have launched an attack on police in Nuristan province. Officials reported Tuesday that at least 200 Taliban fighters attacked a police position in Parun, the provincial capital. The fighters had guns and small bombs. At least two police officers were injured in the attack.

President Obama says immigrants have made the United States stronger and wealthier. Mr. Obama spoke Tuesday in the city of El Paso, Texas. He described the United States immigration system as broken. He said this hurts the economy because workers without permits can be paid less and other citizens can not compete. Mr. Obama proposed a system that would permit citizenship for an estimated 11 million immigrants. The system would also make it easier for students from other countries to work and start businesses in the United States.

A human rights group says Bangladesh is failing to stop killings by police. Human Rights Watch released a report Tuesday from their New York headquarters.

And now briefly, here again is the major news of the hour read in VOA Special English.

North Atlantic Treaty Organization airstrikes shook the Libyan capital Tuesday. The alliance said NATO attacked a military command and control center in Tripoli. But NATO has denied that Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi was a target when it bombed Libya's capital on Tuesday. Syrian officials have carried out more raids across the country. Witnesses heard heavy gunfire in the Damascus area community of Maadamiyeh on Tuesday. Officials have sent in tanks and cut communications in Maadamiyeh, Homs and Banias. And an American official says Pakistan will soon let American investigators question three wives of Osama bin Laden.

That's the news in VOA Special English from Washington.
