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

President Obama told the British Parliament Wednesday that the United States and Britain support people who want to be free. Mr. Obama spoke about the political changes taking place in the Middle East and North Africa. He said the United States and Britain will work together to make the world more peaceful and wealthy. He rejected the idea that the rise of nations like China, India and Brazil means a reduction of American and European influence.

President Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron have promised a strong military campaign in Libya. The president discussed the situation in Libya with Mr. Cameron in London on Wednesday. They spoke to reporters after their meeting. Both leaders again rejected sending ground troops to Libya. But Mr. Obama said there would be no weakening in allied efforts to force Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi from power. He said he could not predict when Mr. Gadhafi may be forced to resign. Earlier, people living in Tripoli reported six loud explosions during the night. NATO began increasing its bombing raids on the city on Monday. Some of the targets are areas around Mr. Gadhafi's headquarters.

Several major European nations have released an early version of a resolution to the United Nations Security Council. The resolution from Britain, France, Germany and Portugal condemns Syria for its attacks on protesters, and calls for an immediate end to the violence. The resolution condemns the violation of human rights, including the killing, detention and torture of peaceful protesters and reporters by Syrian officials. It also calls on Syria to remove restrictions on the media and to launch an investigation to punish those responsible for the violence. The Security Council is to meet Thursday to discuss the document.

The Palestinian president has again said he plans to seek United Nations recognition of a Palestinian state, if there is no progress in talks with Israel by September. Mahmoud Abbas spoke in Ramallah Wednesday. He said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did not help the peace process when he spoke to the United States Congress on Tuesday. In London Wednesday, President Obama said it would be a mistake for Palestinians to seek statehood at the U.N. instead of talking to the Israelis. Last week, Mr. Obama called for a Palestinian state based on borders that existed before the 1967 Six-Day War. On Tuesday, Mr. Netanyahu strongly rejected returning to those borders.

You are listening to the news in VOA Special English.

Pakistani police say at least eight people were killed and about 30 more wounded in an attack Wednesday in Peshawar. Most of the dead were police officers. Police said a suicide bomber driving a vehicle struck a police building. the vehicle reportedly was carrying 300 kilograms of explosives. The Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for the bombing. A Taliban spokesman said the attack was the latest in a series of actions to answer the killing of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden.

New York court officials say the former head of the International Monetary Fund will be moved to a new home while he awaits trial under house arrest. Dominique Strauss-Kahn is to be tried on charges of sexual violence. A court spokesman would not say where he will be moving or when. Earlier Wednesday, French Finance Minister Christine Lagarde announced her candidacy to lead the International Monetary Fund. The position opened last week after Mr. Strauss-Kahn resigned. European Union leaders say they want another European to lead the IMF at a time when it is helping Greece, Ireland and Portugal with debt problems. But several major developing economies are calling for a non-European to lead the organization.

A major American magazine publisher has signed a $2 billion agreement to move its headquarters to the One World Trade Center building. This skyscraper in New York City is being built in the area where the September 11 terrorist attacks took place in 2001. Publisher Conde Nast signed a 25-year lease on Wednesday. The company will use about one-third of the building. The building is expected to be finished by 2013. It is to stand 541 meters hight. This will make it the tallest building in the United States.

Severe storms and tornadoes have killed at least 14 more people in the central United States. Emergency officials reported deaths in the states of Oklahoma, Kansas and Arkansas. Over 30 tornadoes were reported in the area Tuesday and early Wednesday. Recovery efforts continued in Joplin, Missouri Wednesday. A severe tornado struck the city on Sunday, 125 people have been reported killed. The number of deaths is expected to increase. About 1,500 people are missing.

A husband and wife working to protect people living in the Amazon rain forest of Brazil have been killed. Officials say Joao Claudio Ribeiro da Silva and Maria do Espirito Santo were shot by gunmen in the northern Brazil state of Para on Tuesday. President Dilma Rousseff's office says she has ordered a federal investigation. The couple had received death threats from workers angry about their attempts to stop companies from cutting down trees in the forest. The couple also worked to protect people who live in the forest and harvest rubber, nuts and other renewable resources. On Wednesday, the lower house of Brazil's Congress approved a bill that reduces the amount of protected land in the Amazon. The bill must still be approved by the Senate and president.

And now briefly, here agin is the major news of the hour.

President Obama has told British lawmakers that the United States and Britain will work together to make the world more peaceful and wealthy. Several European nations have released an early version of a resolution to the U.N. Security Council that condemns Syria for its attacks on protesters. And Pakistani police say at least eight people were killed in an attack Wednesday in Peshawar.

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