From Washington, here is the news in VOA Special English.

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moom says the situation in Syria is very bad and getting worse. Mr. Ban told the UN General Assembly in New York that UN efforts to help Syrian refugees are not well-financed. He said only half the money needed has been given so far. He praised nearby governments for being generous in opening their borders to refugee camps. He said those governments urgently need more support. Jordan, Iraq, Lebanon and Turkey have all welcomed Syrians fleeing violence in their country.

President Obama’s wife Michelle speaks to the delegates as the Democratic Party opens its convention Tuesday. Michelle Obama is to make the case for reelecting her husband. She will be the main speaker on the opening night of the three-day Democratic National convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. Former President Bill Clinton will officially nominate Mr. Obama on Wednesday. The president is expected to accept the nomination the following day.

Police faced a group of about 100 protesters near the Democratic National Convention Tuesday. The protesters began gathering just before mid-day not far from the convention center. Some shouted Obama is a traitor. Others lay down in the street. Local police surrounded the protesters telling them to move toward a nearby park. Police said most of the protesters eventually moved, but that at least one person was arrested.

American Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is in Beijing on her third stop in the Asia-Pacific area. The visit is aimed partly at urging China and its neighbors to agree on a method for settling territorial disputes in the South China Sea. China claims nearly all of the area. It has refused to agree to a process for negotiating disputes over the oil-rich area. Chinese officials want to deal individually with the opposing nations. Other nations with claims to the sea include Taiwan, the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia and Brunei. Secretary Clinton met Tuesday with China’s Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi. She said the United States is committed to building a cooperative partnership with China.

Indian police have raided homes and offices across the country as part of an investigation into suspected corruption by the country’s ruling coalition. The Central Bureau of Investigation says law enforcement officials organized the raids to learn if there was cheating and criminal plotting in the award of coal fields to private companies. A CBI spokeswoman told the French news agency that police held raids in ten cities. She said police searched coal company offices in New Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata. The opposition Bharatiya Janata Party insisted that all coal awards be cancelled immediately. India’s government has denied the accusations of corruption.

You are listening to the news in VOA Special English.

Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos has announced a deal with the country’s main leftist rebel group to begin talks. The talks are aimed at ending nearly 50 years of war. Mr. Santos announced the deal Tuesday to a national television audience. He asked the Colombian people for patience and strength. He called the agreement with the revolutionary armed forces of Colombia, better known as Farc, a road map to peace. The president said the talks to end the hemisphere’s longest-running conflict will begin next month in Norway with a meeting later moving to Havana.

Afghan officials say a suicide bombing has killed at least 20 people. The attack took place Tuesday at a funeral in the Dur Baba area in eastern Nangarhar Province. A spokesman for the province says at least 25 people died in the explosion. It was one of the deadliest attacks on civilians in recent weeks. Officials say the target of the attack probably was a district governor who was among the 50 people injured.

French President Francois Hollande and Italian Prime Minister Mario Munti have called for urgent efforts to restore economic growth and create jobs in Europe. After meeting in Rome Tuesday, Mr. Hollande told reporters that economic growth will allow Euro Zone countries to honor their budget commitments. He expressed confidence that even Greece can recover. Mr. Munti has urged the European Union and financial markets to recognize efforts by members to begin financial reforms.

The United States Treasury Department confirms that for the first time the national debt is now more than 304726trillion. Officials said the country will likely reach its legal debt limit later this year. The last time the United States reached its debt limit disputes in Congress delayed new laws to increase the legal amount of debt. And the nation’s credit rating was down-graded. Republican officials blame the high debt on President Obama. An Obama reelection campaign official told Yahoo News that when it comes to the nation’s debt, Republicans should be repeating a line they used often during their national convention last week. “We built this.”

Spanish police have removed more than 80 illegal migrants from a very small Mediterranean island. Spanish officials say police handed over most of the migrants to Moroccan officials early Tuesday. Some women and children were taken to a Spanish hospital. Rights groups say the migrants should have been given lawyers and allowed to request asylum in Spain.

And now, briefly, here again is the major news at this hour read in VOA Special English.

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moom says the situation in Syria is very serious and getting worse. President Obama’s wife Micelle is set to speak to delegates as the Democratic Party opens its convention Tuesday evening. And America’s top diplomat, Ms. Clinton, has arrived in Beijing on a visit aimed in part at urging China and its neighbors to agree to a method for settling territorial disputes.

And that’s the news in VOA Special English coming to you from Washington.
