  1. From Washington here is the news in VOA Special English.
  2. Egyptian media are reporting another serious health crisis for former Egyptian Pres. Hosni Mubarak. A VOA reporter in Cairo says the news comes only weeks after Mubarek was sentenced to life in prison for his role in the killing of protesters who helped oust him. Mr. Mubarak was taken from prison to a military hospital late Tuesday. There are conflicting reports on his condition. Confusion over Mr. Mubarak's condition comes as tens of thousands of protesters once again gather in Cairo. The Muslim Brotherhood, labor groups and the April 6 youth movement called for the protest into * square. The call answered a declaration from the temporary military rulers that gave them and the courts the power to make decisions about local and foreign policy. The move effectively takes away power from a newly elected president. This weekend is the candidate of the once banned Muslim Brotherhood claimed victory in Egypt's first free presidential election. Official results are expected later this week.
  3. Britain says a Russian ship believed to be transporting weapons to Syria appears to have turned back after a British insurance company canceled its insurance. The standard club insurance companies said Tuesday it was told the Russian ship was transporting weapons to Syria. The insurance company said it then told the ship's owners it was canceling the ship's insurance. Separately, the Syrian Foreign Ministry says observers tried to move citizens out of the central city of Homs Tuesday. Syrian officials said the observers were blocked by armed terrorist groups. United Nations observer chief Robert Mood has asked the Syrian government and the rebel forces to permit women children and the wounded to leave.
  4. The leaders of the world's largest economies say they are ready to work together to improve economic growth. G20 leaders have been meeting in Mexico. Reuters news reports that French President Olander said he and German Chancellor * agree that Europe must find its own answer to the debt crisis rather than seek solutions from outside. On Tuesday, President Obama met privately with Chinese President Hu Jintao. China has promised to provide $43 billion in emergency money to the international monetary fund. Brazil, Russia, and India have also each promised to give the fund 300980 billion.
  5. Greek Socialist leader Venizelos says political party leaders hope to have a coalition government formed on Wednesday. He spoke on Tuesday and said that his party might reach an agreement with the conservative New Democracy party and the Democratic Left party on the third and last day of negotiations to form a government. The countries president has given the wave of the new Democracy party in uncial Wednesday to form a coalition that party won the most seats in parliamentary elections on Sunday but did not win a majority. The Liberal * Party came in second in the election. Seras opposes the terms of international rescue loans for Greece, and is refusing to join the coalition. The democratic left party opposes the rescue loans but may also joined a governing coalition with * and a new democracy.
  6. Burmese democracy leader Aung Sun Su Kii is thanks to the British people for 25 years of support. She spoke at the start of her visit to Britain Tuesday on her 67th birthday. She left her husband and sons in Britain 24 years ago when she returned to Burma to care for her sick mother. She was detained for most of the next 20 years by the military rulers in Burma. She spoke at the London school of Economics on Tuesday. Later in the week, she will talk to both houses of parliament. Aung Sun Su Kii was released from house arrest in 2010 and is now been elected to Parliament.
  7. Pakistan's highest court says Prime Minister Yousuf Killarney cannot hold office. The court said Mr. Killarney is guilty of not investigating charges of corruption against President Ali Zardari. The court says that Mr. Killarney is no longer Prime Minister and that President Zardari must begin the process of electing a new prime minister. Under Pakistan's Constitution, the president must call a joint meeting of Parliament to elect the new leader. Mr. Killarney has refused to step down the court ruling Tuesday came as the government in Pakistan struggles with Islamic militants a weak economy and violent protests against continuing losses of electricity.
  8. Doctors in central Afghanistan say they are treating at least 116 Afghan students, mostly girls, after they became sick at school. Health officials in Bamian province made the announcement Tuesday. For the past several weeks hundreds of students across Afghanistan have reported strange smells in their schools and trouble standing up in some cases they vomited. Local hospital officials are investigating whether the students were poison. Afghan intelligence officials have accused the Pakistani military spy agency of being involved in the incidents. Pakistan says the charges are senseless. Other Afghan officials blamed the Taliban which has denied any involvement.
  9. And in Rio de Janeiro Brazil, some delegates to the real +20 environmental meeting have agreed on a proposed plan for world leaders to sign. The early version of the plan calls for protecting the health of the world while working to bring billions of people out of poverty. The protection would come from protecting natural resources instead of using natural resources here responsible. Very few details have been released, but some environmentalists say the plan is too weak. More than 100 world leaders plan to attend the meeting Wednesday in Brazil the gathering comes 20 years after the meeting in Kyoto Japan that led to the Kyoto agreement to cut pollution believed to cause climate change.
  10. And now briefly here again is the major news at this hour. Egyptian media are reporting another serious health crisis for former Egyptian Pres. Mubarak. Britain says a Russian ship believed to be transporting weapons to Syria appears to have turned back after a British insurance company canceled its insurance. And the leaders of the world's largest economies say they are ready to work together to improve economic growth. And that's the news in VOA Special English from Washington.
