  1. It is zero hours 30 universal time and here is the news in special English.
  2. United Nations observers in Syria have raised new charges of execution like killings with the discovery of 13 bodies. The latest violence took place in northeastern* province. The bodies were found there late Tuesday. The victims were found with their hands tied behind their backs and their eyes covered. A statement by the UN operations said some of the dead appeared to have been shot in the head. UN Observer Robert Mood said the discovery was deeply disturbing.
  3. The United States ambassador to the United Nations is warning that the conflict in Syria is likely to increase and spread to other countries in the area. Susan Rice spoke after a closed meeting of the UN Security Council in New York. She said the crisis in Syria appears to be getting worse. This becomes a proxy conflict with arms flowing in from all sides and members of this council and members of the international community are left with the option only of having to consider whenever prepared to take action outside of the end plan and the authority in this council. The 15 member Security Council has been trying to avoid an expansion of the crisis with the peace plan negotiated by UN diplomat Kofi Anna. But Ms. Rice said the responsibilities now rest with the Syrian government. She said if the Syrian government does not fulfill its responsibilities. Then, the UN Security Council should act quickly and surely. But she did not say what action the council should take.
  4. The special court in The Hague has sentenced former Liberian leader Charles Taylor to 50 years in prison for war crimes and crimes against humanity. The Special Court for Sierra Leone said the former president used his position to help the rebels instead of working for peace and security. Judge Richard lovesick said Taylor's actions of supplying arms and providing support and guidance to the rebels added to his criminal behavior. He added that if the rebels had not had his support, the conflict and associated crimes might not have happened. Court lawyers had asked for an 80 year sentence. The court found Taylor guilty of all 11 charges against him. These included charges of murder, rape, sexual slavery, and using child soldiers. Taylor's legal team is expected to appeal the sentence.
  5. A Tibetan mother has died after setting herself on fire to protest Chinese rule. The 33-year-old woman named Riccio died in front of a religious center in an area Tibetans called * in Sichuan province. A head of Joe Maung Welfare Association told VOA that protester was a neighbor of three young Tibetans who set themselves on fire earlier this year. They were demanding the safe return of their exiled spiritual leader the Dalai Lama. The woman suicide brings to 38 the number of people who have set themselves on fire to protest Chinese rule in areas with large Tibetan populations. Chinese officials say Tibetan activists living outside of China incite others to burn themselves to death.
  6. A court document shows that the Pakistani doctor who helped the United States find Osama bin Laden was not jailed for working with American agents. Instead it says the court sentenced * to 33 years in prison because he helped militants in northwest Pakistan. The document said the doctor met with commanders of the banned militant group * Islam. He reportedly gave them medical treatment and financial help. Tribal court sentenced the doctor last week. He was also accused of organizing a vaccination campaign to help the Central intelligence agency collect DNA or genetic material from Osama bin Laden. American special forces killed the Al Qaeda leader in a raid at his home in Pakistan over a year ago.
  7. You are listening to the news in VOA Special English.
  8. The space X Dragon space capsule is preparing to return to Earth. It is the first reusable privately owned space supply vehicle. Dragon is set to leave the international space station Thursday and return to Earth six hours later. The spaceship made a successful orbital test in 2010. The chief of the operation John Cloris says the landing in water is a very difficult part of the flight. He called the operation a major success. The Dragon was launched May 22 its goal was to bring supplies to the space station space X was cofounded by Elon Musk. Mr. Musk plans to carry astronauts to the space station by 2015.
  9. Colombia's FARC rebels have released a French news reporter who was held hostage for months. * was captured April 28 during the rebel attack on Colombian troops. The troops were involved in the operation to destroy illegal drugs. Mr. * was writing a story about them at the time pictures from Colombian media showed him smiling and saying after his release that he was treated well. A delegation of Red Cross workers, a member of the French government, and three representatives of the local human rights group helped the exchange. The Colombian Army agreed to suspend all military operations in the area for at least 36 hours in order to get the release.
  10. The Supreme Court in Britain has ruled that Julian *, an Australian citizen, can be sent to Sweden to face sex crimes charges. The High Court 522 ruling supports earlier decisions by two lower courts. Mr. Sanchez founded the wiki leaks website. He is wanted in Sweden for questioning over reports that he raped one woman and sexually attacked another in 2010. The Supreme Court gave his lawyers two weeks to study the ruling and appealed to reopen the case. Julian Sanchez has denied the charges against him. He can make one last appeal to the European Court of human rights. Also, Wednesday Russia's * state news agency said it will continue to broadcast a talk show starring Mr. Hassan.
  11. And now briefly here again is the major news at this hour. United Nations observers in Syria has raised new charges of execution like killings with the discovery of 13 bodies. The special court in The Hague has sentenced former Liberian leader Charles Taylor to 50 years in prison for war crimes and crimes against humanity. And a Tibetan mother has died after setting herself on fire to protest Chinese rule. That's the news in VOA Special English from Washington.
