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

A Syrian opposition group says explosions in the province of Darra killed 20people Tuesday. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported clashes and bombardments in almost every province, from Darra in the south to Aleppo in the north. And it said five unidentified bodies were found in the Zahara area. Syria’s SANA News Agency reported Tuesday that the military had killed a group of terrorists and destroyed explosives factories in the city of Aleppo.

In Nigeria, witnesses say gunmen killed at least 25 people at a student housing area in Northeastern Nigeria. The attack took place late Monday at the Federal Polytechnic College in the town of Mubi in Adamawa State. Students at the school say gunshots were heard for at least three hours. Officials say the attackers may have known their victims because they entered a housing area and called out the victims by name. One student told VOA the attackers asked questions about religion and politics and then killed those who gave the wrong answers. An official with Nigeria’s Emergency Management Agency says the incident may have been linked to college politics after recent student elections.

The Obama Administration is refusing to confirm or deny a report that says it is considering using pilotless planes against al-Qaeda agents in North Africa. The Washington Post newspaper reported Tuesday that secret meetings have been held at the White House to consider action against al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb. The group has become increasingly active in Northern Mali. The government there fell earlier this year to Islamist militants connected to al-Qaeda. The National Security Council spokesman did not comment on the news story. But in a statement he said the president has been clear about his goal to destroy al-Qaeda and we work toward that goal everyday.

Major political change may be coming to the Republic of Georgia after the opposition defeated the ruling party of President Mikheil Saakashvili in Monday’s parliamentary election. The president admitted Tuesday his party had been defeated by the Georgian Dream Coalition led by billionaire Bidzina Ivanishvili. In a statement carried on television, Mr. Saakashvili promised to help the opposition form a new government. He will remain Georgia’s president until his term ends next year. Under changes in the constitution, many of the president’s powers will then be turned over to a new prime minister. Mr. Ivanishvili has said he wants to be prime minister.

You are listening to the news in VOA Special English.

Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad has rejected increasing criticism of his economic policies by the Iranian people. Iran’s money is on a path to another record low against the dollar. Street traders said the real traded as low as 39,000 per dollar in the unofficial or black market on Tuesday before rising a small amount. Last week, it traded at about 24,000 to the dollar. Iran’s money has dropped sharply this year as the United States and the European Union increased economic restrictions. The goal is to pressure Iran to suspend its disputed uranium enrichment program. The speaker of parliament says 80% of Iran’s economic problems are linked to government mismanagement. Mr. Ahmadinejad blames what he calls psychological pressure from Iran’s enemies.

The first of three debates between President Obama and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney takes place Wednesday night. VOA’s Pam Dockins asked some observers what the two candidates have to do to win undecided voters. The logra sardine has her report in VOA Special English. “President Obama is said to be leading Mr. Romney in studies of likely American voters. What should Mr. Obama do to win reelection? Larry Sabato is director of the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia. ‘I don’t think he has to join the grand enjoy about a second term.’ But for Mitt Romney Mr. Sabato says that’s a different story. ‘Most people see the debate …… as … moment for him.’ Mark Heatherinton, a professor at vandeville University says the debate gave Mr. Romney a chance to give his campaign a lift. ‘Governor Romney …… generally liked.’ Professor Heatherinton says both candidates will have to work hard to get the attention of and to connect with undecided voters. ‘That’s of course the trick …… in the game.’ The brooklin institution’s Steven head says both men have to worry about how likable they are to voters. President Obama, Mr. Head says, will have to defend his record without looking too aggressive. ‘We can that he’ll be attacked …… looks cool.’ As for Mr. Romney, Steven Head says in general there are two ways of looking at the candidates. ‘There is the one that says the American people are not terribly comfortable with him as a man and that is very important for him to be better liked liability. Then the other school would of course be that this is an opportunity to show a strong leadership.’ Mr. head believes the American economy will be the main issue in the presidential election next month. He says each candidate will have to succeed on that issue to win over voter. I’m Milagrous ardin.”

Finally, a new study says the number of older people around the world is growing faster than any other age group. The study called Aging in the 21st Century—a Celebration and a Challenge—was published by the United Nations Population Fund this week. It says in the year 2000 for the first time in history, there were more people aged 60 and older than there were children under five. Population experts say by the year 2050, there will be more older people than there are young people under the age of 15. The report says aging populations mean that societies around the world will have to figure out how to provide health care, housing and more.

Briefly, here again is the major news.

A Syrian opposition group says explosions in the country’s south killed 20people Tuesday. Nigerian officials say gunmen killed at least 25 people at a student housing area in Northeastern Nigeria. And the Obama Administration will not say if it is considering using pilotless planes against al-Qaeda agents in North Africa.

That’s the news in VOA Special English from Washington.
