我们勤劳的会员“哈哈泰”于2012年3月1日发布了关于这篇文章的精华帖子,全文如下:

  1. It is one hour 30 universal time, time for the news in Special English.
  2. Syrian security forces have attacked the city of Homs with ground forces. They are trying to take over areas controlled by rebels. Government forces have been bombing those areas by air for almost a month. Activists said Wednesday that forces commanded by the brother of Syrian President Bishara Assad were fighting the rebels free Syrian army. The Syrian official promised one area of the city would be in his words cleansed within hours. But an activist in the area told VOA the rebels were still fighting. Separately, Libya said it will give 2932300 million in humanitarian aid to the Syrian opposition. Libya's new government has recognized the opposition Syrian National Council as the official government Syria since October.
  3. Egyptian officials have canceled a ban on trial for seven American pro-democracy activists. The Americans had been charged with illegal activities. Egyptian judicial officials said seven of the Americans may leave the country. One of them is a son of a member of Pres. Obama's cabinet. Nine Americans who were being tried for illegal activities left Egypt before the travel ban was announced. 16 Americans were among 43 people who went on trial Sunday. They were charged with illegally collecting money and doing political work without government permission.
  4. North Korea has agreed to temporarily suspend nuclear tests long-range missile launches and other nuclear activities. The agreement came after talks with Chinese capital Beijing, two months after the death of North Korean leader Kim Jong Il. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told a congressional committee Wednesday that North Korea has also agreed to permit international nuclear inspectors into the country. Inspectors will confirm the suspension of uranium enrichment activities and the closure of a nuclear reactor.
  5. The former Prime Minister of Senegal Maki Saul is asking the opposition to support him. Mr. Saul is a former supporter of Pres. Abdallah Awad. He will face the 85-year-old Mr. Awad in a second election on March 18. He received the second most votes in the election Sunday. But both men failed to get a majority. Mr. Saul said if he becomes president, he will change the Constitution to reduce the length of the presidential term from 7 to 5 years. Early results show Mr. Awad received more than 30% of the votes. Mr. Saul received about 23%.
  6. A debate is taking place in Nigeria over whether the government can punish parents who refused to have their children vaccinated against polio. The government of northern Kano state says it will not charge parents who refuse to have their children vaccinated. Opponents of vaccinations say Nigeria's Constitution gives citizens the right to refuse treatment. But government health lawyers say the Constitution also gives the government the right to be involved where the health and life of other citizens are threatened. They say the government is permitted to give the vaccine to all children without their parents approve.
  7. You are listening to the news in VOA Special English.
  8. A federal judge in the United States says a requirement that cigarette packages have large warning signs is unconstitutional. District Judge Richard Leon said the government rule violates the First Amendment right to free speech warnings were to have failed about half of the label on the package. They were to include color pictures of cancer risk loans and a dead body. The government can appeal the ruling.
  9. The American economy grew faster than first thought in the final months of last year. The Commerce Department reported Wednesday that the nation's gross domestic product expanded at a yearly rate of 3%. The gross domestic product is the total of all the goods and services produced in the nation. The new report is the latest sign that the world's largest economy is expanding as it recovers from the worst recession in years.
  10. The European Central Bank has approved another $712 billion in loans to 800 banks across the continent. The three-year loans carry a very low interest rate of 1%. The central bank is hoping the new loans will strengthen Europe's economy and help it recover from the government debt crisis. The bank also approved $657 billion in loans to Europe's private banks in December.
  11. Belarus has criticized the decision by European Union members to withdraw their ambassadors from the country. The Belarusian Foreign Ministry said the move is unproductive and increases tensions. European Union members decided Tuesday to withdraw their ambassadors after Belarus expelled the Polish and EU ambassadors. Belarus ordered the expulsions after the EU announced measures against Belarusian officials because of the countries human rights record.
  12. The Italian cruise ship coastal Allegre is expected to arrive at the main port in the Seychelles on Thursday. The French fishing boat is pulling the ship to the port. The coastal Allegre lost power in the Indian Ocean after a fire started in its engine room on Monday. No one was injured in the fire, but the 1000 passengers have been without power and communications since the accident. Officials in the Seychelles say airplanes are ready to fly the passengers back to Rome after the ship arrives in port.
  13. And now once again the top news of the hour. Syrian security forces have attacked the city of Homs with ground forces. They are trying to take over areas controlled by rebels. Egyptian officials have canceled a ban on travel for seven American pro-democracy activists who had been charged with illegal activities. And North Korea has agreed to temporarily suspend nuclear tests, long-range missile launches, and other nuclear activities. That's the news in VOA Special English from Washington.
