我们勤劳的会员“哈哈泰”于2012年5月11日发布了关于这篇文章的精华帖子,全文如下:

  1. It is zero hours 30 universal time. Here is the news in Special English.
  2. Syrian officials say two suicide bomb attacks have killed at least 55 people. About 370 others were wounded. The bombs exploded near the Palestine branch military intelligence building in Damascus. State media say two cars with 1000kg of explosives blew up within seconds of each other Thursday morning. Body parts and burned vehicles covered the streets. Syrian Observatory for human rights said most of the victims were members of the Syrian state security forces. There was no immediate claim of responsibility. The Syrian government blamed terrorists for the attack, but the exiled Syrian National Council accuses the government of plotting the attacks. In New York, the United Nations Security Council condemned the car bombing.
  3. Yemeni officials say airstrikes and shelling have killed at least 17 Al Qaeda militants in southern Yemen. Security official said the airstrikes hit the town of * and an area northeast of Zanzibar. The group Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula uses both areas as a base. Two early-morning airstrikes killed seven militants. Later Thursday, Yemeni soldiers killed 10 people in attacks on militant positions near the Jabar, the capital of * province. The United States has been using drone aircraft to attack Al Qaeda in Yemen. Yemeni officials said that such an aircraft was used to carry out one of the raids on Thursday.
  4. Greek Socialist leader * says progress is being made in the country's third attempt to form a coalition government. Earlier this week, a leftist coalition and the new democracy party failed to form a government. If a deal is not reached, the Greek president will have to call on all parties to form an emergency coalition. If that cannot be done by May 17, new elections will be called.
  5. The government of French President Nicholas * has officially resigned. Prime Minister * informed Mr. * by letter Thursday that he and other cabinet ministers were resigning. However, the cabinet will continue to carry out its duties until the newly elected President Olander takes office on May 15. The new French leader met in Paris on Thursday with the Prime Minister of Luxembourg who leads meetings of euro area finance ministers hours after Mr. Olander is sworn. And he will travel to Berlin for talks with German Chancellor *. They plan to talk about German ordered measures to end the European financial crisis.
  6. Several Chinese travel agencies have suspended trips to the Philippines because of disputes over islands in the South China Sea. China has warned its citizens in the Philippines about anti-China protests planned for later this week. China has demanded that the Philippine government provides for the safety of Chinese nationals. The dispute began on April 10 when Chinese ships prevented the Philippine warship from detaining Chinese fishermen in waters near Scarborough Scholl. Both countries claim ownership of the area. To ease tensions, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations has been negotiating rules for operating in the South China Sea.
  7. You are listening to the news in VOA Special English.
  8. There have been mixed reactions around the world to President Obama's support for same-sex marriage. In Europe, Germany's foreign minister called Mr. Obama's decision a courageous step. The American rights group human rights campaign also released a comment. It said the president's decision is a message of hope to a group of young lesbians, Gay Bisexual, and transgender Americans. But a leader of the Roman Catholic Church in Dublin Ireland said Catholic teaching is very clear. Bishop Darin Martin said marriage should be between a man and a woman. President Obama said Wednesday that he believes same-sex couples should be able to get married. He spoke one day after the state of North Carolina amended its constitution to define marriage as the union between a man and a woman.
  9. The United States has reported its first budget surplus in almost 4 years. The Treasury Department says the country took more money last month that it spends for the first time since September 2008. Americans pay their yearly taxes in April, so an increased is not unusual. Some economists believe the surplus is assigned that the American economy may be recovery. However, the federal government is expected to have another trillion dollar deficits this year.
  10. The Obama administration says it is not displeased that Russian Pres. Vladimir Putin will not attend the group of eight meetings next week. The meetings are to be held at the American presidential home in the mountains of Maryland. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev will attend the meetings in Mr. Putin's place. Mr. Obama and Mr. Putin spoke by telephone on Wednesday.
  11. The organization of petroleum exporting countries OPEC reported Thursday that its 12 member countries produced more than 32 million barrels of oil in March. That is an increase of more than 300,000 barrels of oil since February. OPEC produces about one third of the world's oil. OPEC production in March was its highest since the middle of 2008. The demand for oil has dropped partly because of a mild recession in European countries and weak economic growth in the United States. But OPEC said Thursday that the decrease in demand has stopped. The group said the American economy is firming up, and Japan needs more oil after closing all of its nuclear power centers.
  12. And now briefly here again is the top news for this hour. The United Nations Security Council has condemned suicide bombings in Damascus that killed at least 55 people. Yemeni officials say airstrikes and shelling have killed at least 17 Al Qaeda militants in southern Yemen. And Greek Socialist leader * says progress is being made in his country's third attempt to form a coalition government. That's the news in VOA Special English from Washington.
