From Washington, this is VOA news. South Sudan peace talks getting ready to roll. Another delay in Musharraf’s Pakistani court appearance he didn’t show up. I’m Ray Kouguell, reporting from Washington.

Delegates for South Sudan’s warring sides are gathering in Ethiopia for peace talks in a bid to end weeks of violence that has left more than 1,000 people dead. Representatives of president Salva Kiir and rebel leader Riek Machar arrived in the capital Addis Ababa Wednesday. Talks are not expected to begin until Thursday. There were renewed clashes between government troops and forces loyal to Machar in Bor, the capital of South Sudan’s Jonglei state. President Salva Kiir declared a state of emergency in Jonglei state, as well as the oil-producing Unity state.

3 car bombs have at least killed 8 people outside a major hotel used by foreigners in Mogadishu, Somalia. Government security forces and African Union peacekeepers sealed off the streets around the hotel Wednesday. Two bombs went off in quick succession near the hotel gate, the third blast a little bit later. No one has claimed responsibility for the bombings.

As violence continues in the central African republic, conditions for aid organizations like doctors without borders have become dangerous. In just the last week, twice hospitals and clinics had to be evacuated when armed men entered those facilities. Peter Cocks reports.

Teams with doctors without borders say the violence has been escalating despite the increase presence of French and African troops. Sylvain Groulx the head of mission for doctors without borders in the central African republic says medical staff had to temporarily evacuate their facilities on December 24th and 25th due to threats by armed men and close gunfire. Essentially they have been threatening medical personnel. They have been threatening staff as well. It’s been very difficult to manage those incidents. Doctors without borders is providing general medical care for thousands of people and says its teams have been treating up to 20 people a day who have been injured in the violence. Peter Cocks for VOA news, Johannesburg.

The Palestinian ambassador to the Czech republic was killed in an explosion at his apartment in Prague. Authorities say the blast was most likely an accident. Palestinian officials say the explosion occurred Wednesday as the ambassador was opening an old safe that had been brought to his quarters. There were reports which say the explosives may have actually been a part of a security device on the safe.

Russian president Vladimir Putin paid a visit to Volgograd, the site of this week’s twin suicide bombings that have left 34 people dead. Mr.Putin laid flowers at the scene of one of those bombings and visited with survivors at a hospital in the city Wednesday. Mr.Putin said there was no justification for the attack. There’s been no claim of responsibility for it. Volgograd is now under heavy security with authorities deploying more than 5,000 security personnel in and around the city.

Violence in Iraq reached its worst level in years in 2013 with one organization saying almost 9,500 people died from bombings and militant assault across the country. The United Nations and the Britain-based NGO, Iraq body count say the number of deaths last year surpassed levels of violence last seen in 2008.

Pakistan’s former military ruler Pervez Musharraf went on trial for treason Wednesday but defense lawyer has told the court security threats preventing from attending the proceedings. Ayaz Gul has more.

Security arrangement was tight for Pervez Musharraf's scheduled appearance before a three-member special court hearing the high treason case. But shortly before the legal proceedings were to open, Pakistani police reported a bomb along the road Mr. Musharraf's convoy was to take to the court, preventing him from leaving his residence. Defense lawyer Ahmed Raza Kasuri says the court accepted their arguments about security threats facing Mr. Musharraf.

You can't arrange foolproof security and plug in all the gaps, if something goes wrong, the court also be a target of that attack. So the court realize that I'm talking sense and they were not adamant that no proceeding can take place without him. A treason trial is unprecedented in Pakistan where the military remains the country's most powerful institution. Ayaz Gul for VOA news, Islamabad.

Pope Francis called for greater tolerance in solidarity among human kind during his first new year’s day blessing. Pope Francis spoke to tens of thousands of people in St.Peter's Square on Wednesday.
