我们勤劳的会员“哈哈泰”于2011年12月30日发布了关于这篇文章的精华帖子,全文如下:

  1. It is 22 hours 30 universal to hear now the news in VOA Special English. I'm Christopher Curies reporting live from the VOA headquarters in Washington.
  2. Activists say Syrian security forces killed at least 25 people Thursday. The Syrian Observatory for human rights says at least four of the deaths happened in Dumas near Damascus. The observatory says security forces fired on thousands of people, as those people began protesting outside the Moslem religious center. Some witnesses said Arab League observers were present. Activists also say at least six people were killed in Homa on Thursday. Separately, the Syrian government says observers from the Arab League met a numbers of people in Damascus and Homas, as well as in the Dara and Homa areas. About 60 Arab League observers or in Syria to see if the government is stopping its violence against protesters and is freeing political detainees.
  3. A Turkish official has confirmed that airstrikes by the Turkish military killed 35 people in Iraq by mistake. Ruling party official Hussein Chadwick said new information shows the victims were not terrorists. He apologized for the deaths. Earlier, the Turkish military said its jets bombed an area often used by the Kurdistan Workers Party or PKK rebels. But pro-Kurdish officials said most of the dead were teenagers, illegally carrying gas and sugar across the border into Turkey from northern Iraq. They described the attack as a massacre.
  4. The United States says it will provide fighter airplanes to the Saudi Air Force on the road new agreement worth more than $29 billion. In the statement Thursday the office of President Obama said the United States and Saudi governments signed an agreement for the sale of F15 SA fighter planes to the Royal Saudi Air Force. The agreement includes the sale of 84 new airplanes and the modernization of 70 existing planes.
  5. The French government says an Afghan soldier has shot and killed two members of the French foreign legion. French Pres. Nicolas Saccos official said a soldier in the Afghan National Army opened fire Thursday in the Tonga Valley of * of the provinces. NATO released a statement earlier saying a man wearing Afghan army clothing that killed two coalition troops but did not give details. And the Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack. At least 78 French troops have been killed in Afghanistan since the start of the conflict in 2001. 26 of them died this year. President * said his country remains loyal to the NATO-led force in Afghanistan.
  6. A police doctor who testified against Pakistani security forces has been shot and killed by unknown attackers. Police officials say * was killed Thursday in Quatar, the capital of the * province. They said gunmen who were close to Shaw's body fired three shots at him. Mr. Shaw had complained of constant death threats. He examined the bodies of foreigners who had been killed by police. He was severely beaten earlier this year after he ruled that Pakistani forces shot and killed a group of five men and women from Russia and Tajikistan. The leaders of the security team had said the five were suicide bombers who died when they exploded a small bomb at a security station near Quanta. But Shaw's examination found the men and women had been shot to death.
  7. You are listening to the new was in VOA special English live from Washington.
  8. The number of Americans who are asking for unemployment payments increased last week. That development is a change from the last several months. During that time the American job market improved. But the Labor Department reported Thursday that first time jobless claims rose 15,000 to a national total of 381,000. Economists say taking an average of unemployment claims over a four week period gives a clearer picture of the economy. By that measure jobless claims soar at the lowest level in more than three years.
  9. China has announced a five-year plan to explore outer space. The plan includes the earlier announced goals of putting a man on the moon and building a space station with a Chinese national space administration released a policy paper on Thursday. The policy paper said the nation will make technological preparations for building a space station by the end of 2016. Preparations will include the claimant of space laboratories and the launch of manned spaceships and space supply vehicles.
  10. In North Korea Kim Jong En has been declared supreme leader of the North's ruling party and military. The declaration came at a memorial service for his father Kim Jong Il in Pyongyang. State television showed a huge crowd for the service in Kim square. The nation observed 3 min. of silence as the ceremony ended at noon local time. The memorial service was part of the second day of funeral ceremonies for Kim Jong-Il who died of a heart attack on December 17.
  11. And finally at this hour, a Russian court has rejected an attempt by government lawyers to ban a Hari Krishna version of a Hindu religious document. The Indian Foreign Ministry said the court's decision was a sensible answer to a sensitive issue. The proposed ban had angered Hindus in Russia India and in other parts of the world. The document is a mixture of parts of the Hindu book called the Bhagavad-Gita and comments by the man who began the Hare Krishna movement. Government lawyers in the Siberian city of * tried to ban the book in June. They said it was extremist material. But Hare Krishna spokesman rejected that claim, he said the book teaches peace between all humans.
  12. Now briefly here again is the major news of the hour in VOA special English.
