From Washington, this is VOA News. President Obama opens 8-day Asia tour in Japan. Ukraine formally calls on Easter truce with pro-Russian separatists. I’m Ray Kouguell, reporting from Washington.

President Obama is in Japan for the start of 4-nation tour of Asia where he will try to convince allies that Washington is committed to its rebalancing in the Pacific region. Security concerns over China’s territorial claims and North Korea’s nuclear program will be a major focus of Mr.Obama’s trip. Besides Japan, he'll also visit South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines. The 8-day tour opened in Tokyo with a meeting with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Japan is embroiled in a growing dispute with Beijing over a group of uninhabited islands in the East China Sea.

The confirmed death toll from the South Korean ferry disaster climbed to 150 Wednesday, one week after the passenger boat capsized off the country’s southwest coast. Divers are slowly working their way through the third and fourth floors of the boat which is submerged upside down in murky waters and surrounded by a strong ocean current. More than 150 other passengers are missing and presumed dead. The captain and six crew members are under arrest. Most of the passengers were high school students, who were headed for an outing on the resort island of Jeju.

The Australian Agency coordinating the search for Malaysia Airlines’ flight 370 says unidentified materials washed ashore on western Australia and officials are investigating whether it’s related to the missing plane. The Joint Agency Coordination Center says officials are looking at photographs of the material to determine whether further physical analysis is required. A massive multinational search uncovered no confirmed trace of the plane now 7 weeks after it disappeared mysteriously while on its way from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board. Australian officials, however, are vowing to continue the search even as a robotic submarine is about to complete the first phase of its, so far, unsuccessful scan of the Indian Ocean bottom.

Ukraine formally called off the Easter truce against pro-Russian separatists in the east and says anti-terrorist operations are on again and Russia is threatening to retaliate. Ukraine’s acting President Oleksandr Turchynov ordered a resumption of anti-terrorist operations against pro-Russian separatists who continued to occupy government buildings in several eastern Ukrainian cities. The presidential order followed discovery of 2 bodies near the rebel-held city of Slovyansk. In Moscow, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told State Television Russia would retaliate if its legitimate interests or the Russian people are attacked.

The two main Palestinian factions Fatah and Hamas have announced a reconciliation deal, saying they will try to form a unity government in the coming weeks. Hamas and Fatah split violently in 2007 and have since divided their people between two sets of rulers. It remains unclear how this plan would succeed where past attempts have repeatedly failed. But the US and Israel condemned the agreement.

The World Health Organization says effective vaccines against killer diseases are averting between 2 to 3 million deaths every year. Lisa Schlein reports. An increasing number of people in all age groups are being immunized against preventable diseases. WHO director of Immunization, Vaccines and Biologicals Jean-Marie Okwo-Bele says polio is on the verge of eradication. He says measles in Africa has gone down dramatically and the disease is being eliminated in the Americas and in the Pacific region including China. He says the meningitis vaccine has been an outstanding success in saving lives in Africa. He says Angola and Congo Brazzaville are launching the introduction of roto-virus vaccines into the national health systems to coincide with World Immunization Week. Lisa Schlein, for VOA News, Geneva.

Kosovo’s lawmakers have approved a motion for a European Union-backed special court to try ethnic Albanians accused of committing war crimes during the 1998-99 war of Independence from Servia. Hundreds of ethnic Serb civilians were allegedly killed so their organs could be harvested and sold on the black market.

Afghanistan’s election commission is delaying release of preliminary results from the country’s April 5th presidential election to allow more time to investigate possible fraud. Partial results put former Afghan Foreign Minister Abdullah Abdullah in the lead with 44%, followed by former World Bank economist Ashraf Ghani with 33%. I’m Ray Kouguell, VOA News.

奥巴马总统正在出访其亚洲之行的首站日本,访问期间他将努力使其盟友相信华盛顿会致力于推进太平洋地区的“再平衡”。围绕中国领土主张的安全忧虑和朝鲜的核计划将会是奥巴马此行的一个焦点。除日本之外,他还将访问韩国、马来西亚和菲律宾。八天的行程安排开始于在东京与安倍首相的会晤。围绕着中国东海一群无人居住的岛屿,日本不断地卷入与中国的争端。

自韩国客轮在该国西南海岸发生倾覆事故以来已过去了一周,本周三,本次事故已确定的死亡人数上升至150人。目前潜水员正在缓慢地搜寻该船的第三和第四层,这部份船体倒栽在昏暗的水中,周围海流湍急。现在仍有超过150人失踪或疑似死亡。船长及六名船员被捕。船上大多数乘客为高中学生,他们本来是要去济州岛游玩的。

协调马航370搜索工作的澳大利亚机构称,有不明物体被冲上了澳大利亚西海岸,工作人员正在调查该物体是否与失踪航班有关。联合协调中心称,工作人员正在对比该物体的照片,判断是否需要更进一步的物理分析。距离航班神秘失踪已经过去了7周,大规模的多国搜索并未发现飞机的明确踪迹,该航班从吉隆坡飞往北京,机上共有239人。澳大利亚官方承诺会继续搜索工作,其水下机器人对印度洋海底的第一阶段的搜索即将结束,而该搜索目前为止并不成功。

乌克兰宣布针对东部地区亲俄分裂分子的复活节停战活动正式取消,并表示恢复反恐行动,俄罗斯威胁称会采取措施进行报复。乌克兰代理总统图尔奇诺夫下令恢复针对亲俄分裂分子的反恐行动,目前这些亲俄分裂分子依旧占据着多个乌克兰东部城市的政府大楼。该总统令是在在斯拉维扬斯克发现了两具尸体后发布的,  目前该城仍由反叛分子控制。在莫斯科,俄罗斯外长拉夫罗夫告诉俄罗斯国家电视台,如若俄罗斯的合法权益受到侵害或者俄罗斯人民受到攻击,俄罗斯将采取报复行动。

巴勒斯坦两大派别法塔赫和哈马斯宣布达成和解协议,表示将在今后几周内组建联合政府。2007年哈马斯与法塔赫产生严重分歧,从此让民众分属两大统治派别。在过去这样的努力一再失败,该计划能否成功依然前途未明。美国和以色列对此协议予以谴责。

科索沃立法者通过了一项议案,同意一家由欧盟支持的特殊法庭审判阿尔巴尼亚部族在1998年至1999年从塞尔维亚独立的战争中犯有战争罪。据称上百名塞尔维亚部族平民遭到屠杀,大量的人体器官被拿来在黑市出售。

阿富汗选举委员会推迟公布4月5日总统选举的初步结果,以获得更多时间调查有可能存在的欺诈行为。目前,根据部分结果,阿富汗前外长阿卜杜拉•阿卜杜拉以44%的得票率领先,紧随其后的是前世界银行经济学家阿什拉夫•贾尼,他的得票率为33%。我是雷•寇格尔,美国之音新闻,更多资讯请登录我们的官网voanews.com
