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

Libya's rebel National Transitional Council says it is moving its political leadership to the capital, Tripoli, from the city of Benghazi. Ali Tarhouni is in charge of the council's money. He said the council's work in Tripoli officially began Thursday. Separately, Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi has urged his supporters to rise up and defeat the rebels trying to oust him. In a short radio broadcast Thursday, he described his opponents as "rats." He denounced foreign countries for their involvement. It is not clear where Mr. Gadhafi is. American officials believe he is still in Libya. In Tripoli, fierce gunbattles between fighters loyal to Mr. Gadhafi and opposition fighters have taken place in areas of the capital. Libyan rebels have come to Tripoli in an effort to fight the remaining pro-Gadhafi forces. They are also moving toward Sirte, Mr. Gadhafi's hometown.

Syrian security forces have attacked the country's best-known political cartoon artist. Human rights activists say witnesses found Ali Ferzat Thursday on a street in Damascus, after he was kidnapped, beaten and thrown on the side of a road. A family member of Mr. Ferzat said the attackers threatened to break the cartoonist bones as a warning for him to stop drawing pictures of government officials. Mr. Ferzat is a noted critic of Syria's government and its five-month campaign against pro-democracy demonstrators and dissent. Some of his drawings have insulted President Bashar al-Assad. Separately, activists say Syrian tanks have been shelling areas near the eastern city of Deir al-Zour.

Palestinian sources say 10 people have died and at least 20 have been wounded in recent Israeli airstrikes in the Gaza Strip. Israeli warplanes carried out air raids over the Gaza Strip Wednesday and Thursday after Palestinian militants fired rockets into southern Israel. More rockets struck southern Israel Thursday. Palestinian sources said at least one militant from the Islamic Jihad group was among those killed in the airstrikes. Israeli forces and Palestinian militants have attacked one another near the Gaza border for the past week. The fighting followed an attack by militants in southern Israel on August 18. Eight Israelis were killed in the attack.

Officials in the eastern United States are ordering people to leave coastal areas because of a powerful ocean storm. The governors of North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey and New York have declared states of emergency. Weather officials have ordered a hurricane watch or warning for much of the east coast from North Carolina to New Jersey. The powerful storm continues to hit the Bahamas with winds of up to 185 kilometers an hour. The storm is expected to continue strengthening Thursday evening and move north along the eastern coast. The National Hurricane center calls the storm dangerous. The director of the center says even Washington D.C. maybe affected.

You're listening to the news in VOA Special English.

Officials in Nigeria say suspected members of a militant Islamist group have attacked a police station and two banks. At least 12 people were killed. The attackers happened in the northeast town of Gombi Thursday. Officials say the attackers entered the town quickly. They bombed the police station, then raided First Bank and Union Bank. Police say at least four police officers, one soldier and seven bank workers were killed. They say the gunmen left the banks with an unknown amount of money. Police blame the killing on the Boko Haram group, which has carried out a series of attacks, mostly in northeastern Nigeria. The group is believed to be responsible for attacks on police, politicians, community leaders and religious leaders.

A rights group says Nigeria's anti-corruption agency has done little to stop powerful politicians who are corrupt. Human Rights Watch released a report Thursday. It said Nigeria's Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, has not been effective because of poor supervision, influence from politicians and its own corruption. The rights group criticized the group for convicting just four nationally known politicians since it was established in 2003. The report also noted accusations against the commission's chief, Farida Waziri, of poor supervision and accepting illegal payments.

Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is asking a well-known anti-corruption activist to end his 10-day hunger strike. Mr. Singh told parliament he wants his government to consider all ideas for reform, including the one proposed by activist Anna Hazare. The prime minister praised Hazare. He said he respects Mr. Hazare, and he said 74-year-old man's life is "too precious" to waste. Mr. Hazare said he would end his hunger strike only if parliament begins discussing his anti-corruption ideas on Friday. On Thursday, news agencies said the government had agreed to Mr. Hazare's demand. The hunger strike has caused large anti-corruption protests in many areas of India.

Pakistani officials say at least nine people have been killed in a bomb explosion at a crowded market in the northwest Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province. The blast happened later Thursday in the town of Risalpur as people were shopping for the Muslim festival of Eid. At least 12 people were wounded in the attack. Police say the bomb was left on a bicycle. The explosion damaged several stores and a hotel.

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

Libya's rebel National Transitional Council says it is moving its political leadership to the capital, Tripoli, from the city of Benghazi. Palestinian reports say 10 people have died and at least 20 have been wounded in recent Israeli airstrikes in the Gaza Strip. And officials in Nigeria say suspected members of a militant Islamist group have attacked a police station and two banks. At least 12 people were killed.

And that's the news in VOA Special English.
