From Washington this is VOA News.

Deadly explosions rock central Nigerian city. China warns of repercussions over US cyber indictments. I'm Ray Kougouell, reporting from Washington.

Nigerian police say a pair of explosions in the central city of Jos killed at least 118 people, according to eyewitnesses the blasts went off several minutes apart near a bus terminal and a hospital both located in a busy market area. There has been no claim over responsibility for the attack. Jos is known as a flashpoint for sectarian violence.

The African Union force in Somalia known as AMISOM launched new airstrikes aimed at the militant group al-Shabab. The attack near the southern town of Jilib on Tuesday killed more than 50 al-Shabab insurgents. There's no independent confirmation of that claim however.

Libya's electoral commission announced that it will hold national parliamentary elections on June 25th.The announcement comes as days of clashes between government forces and those loyal to a rogue general renewed fears of a descent into civil war. At least 70 people have been killed in fighting since last week.

Russia's Defense Ministry says its 40,000 army troops near the Ukraine border have started dismantling their positions but NATO and US government officials have said that they had seen no immediate sign of Russian forces withdrawing after President Vladimir Putin's orders to do so.

US vice president Joe Biden is in Bucharest Romania as part of Washington's campaign to reassure east European allies of its support for the region. Vice President Biden said Europe's border in his words should never again be changed at the point of a gun.

The United Nations Refugee Agency says 10,000 civilians have been displaced so far by the unrest in Ukraine and the number is continuing to climb.

China and Russia failed to reach a 400 billion dollar natural gas supply agreement Tuesday despite high expectations as the political interest to both countries would push them to complete the deal. In a visit to Shanghai, Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping signed 49 agreements on energy, transportation and communications but they did not agree on how much China would pay Russia to supply gas over the next 30 years. The two countries still could reach a gas deal before Mr.Putin ends his two day visit to China later Wednesday.

Thailand's military says martial law will stay in place until peace and order are restored following months and sometimes the deadly anti-government protests. Army chief general Prayuth Chan-Ocha says he declared martial law to end the political stalemate and prevent violence after the country's top court ousted Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra for abuse of power. Military officials deny they are staging a coup.

India's Bharatiya Janata Party leader Narendra Modi will be sworn in as the country's next Prime Minister May 26th. He was called Tuesday to form the next government following his party's landslide victory in national elections. Anjana Pasricha reports.

The invitation from Indian President Pranab Mukherjee to Narendra Modi to form the next government came just days after the BJP swept India's parliamentary elections. Tuesday's meeting in the Indian capital was an emotional moment for Modi who has risen from a humble background to the highest office in India. The 63 years old bowed and kissed the steps of parliament as he entered. He says the clear majority won by the party shows that is a verdict filled with hope, faith and trust. Modi expressed optimism that the nation he said to march ahead, urging party members to dedicate themselves to the nation, he called it a need of responsibility. Anjana Pasricha, for VOA News, New Delhi.

South Korea offered condolences to North Korea for last week's collapse of an apartment building in the capital Pyongyang. The South Korea Red Cross sent a letter Tuesday via a dialogue channel at the truce border village of Panmunjom. North Korea is not disclosing how many people were killed or injured in the collapse of the 23-storey building. However South Korean officials say the casualties may be in the hundreds because the building had 92 housing units.

来自华盛顿,这里是VOA新闻。

致命的爆炸袭击了尼日利亚的中心城市。中国警告要对美国的网络起诉进行回应。我是雷·库格尔,从华盛顿发回报道。

尼日利亚警方称诺斯城的中心发生两起爆炸至少造成118人死亡,据目击者称相隔几分钟的爆炸分别发生在一个公交站台和一家医院附近,而两处事发地都位于繁忙的市场区域。还没有人声称对袭击事件负责。诺斯被认为是宗派暴力事件的爆发点。

非盟驻索马里特派团针对激进组织青年党发动了新的空袭。袭击于周二在南部城镇吉利卜附近爆发,造成50多名青年党叛乱者丧生。目前没有独立消息来源对此进行证实。

利比亚选举委员会宣布将在六月二十五日举办全国议会选举。该消息出台时政府军和效忠另一桀骜不驯将军的拥簇者爆发冲突。这场冲突持续多日,重新引起人们对此演变成内战的担忧。自上周以来,至少有70人已经死于战乱。

俄罗斯国防部表示,乌克兰边界附近的四万俄军已经开始撤退。然而,北约和美国政府官员称,普京虽然下达了这样的命令,但他们并没有看到俄军撤退的迹象。

目前,美国政府正积极活动,向东欧盟友确保美国对东欧地区的支持,因此,美国副总统拜登正在罗马尼亚首都布加勒斯特进行访问。拜登表示,欧洲边界,用他的话来说,不应再因战争而改变。

联合国难民署称,截止目前,乌克兰的动荡局势已致一万名平民流离失所,而这一数字仍在上升。

周二,中俄四千亿美元的天然气供应协议未能达成一致,尽管外界普遍认为共同的政治利益会促使双方达成协议。在访问上海期间,俄总统普京和中国国家主席习近平就能源,交通和通信签署了49项协议,但双方就未来30年俄罗斯供给中国天然气的价格未能达成一致。两国在周三晚些时候,也就是普京结束对中国的两天访问前仍有可能就天然气达成一致。

泰国军方表示,除非在未来几个月里社会秩序得到恢复,暴力反政府抗议得以结束,戒严令才会解除。陆军司令巴育•占奥差表示,他实行戒严令的目的是为了在英拉下台后能够结束政治上的僵局和暴力,英拉总理此前因滥用职权罪被泰国最高法庭罢免。军方官员否认政变一事。

印度人民党领袖纳伦德拉•莫迪将在5月26日就职印度新一任总理。莫迪所在党派全国大选中取得压倒性的胜利后,他于周二受命组建新一届政府。安迦娜.帕斯理查报道。

在印度人民党横扫议会选举仅数天后,印度总统普拉纳布•慕克吉就邀请纳伦德拉•莫迪组建新一届政府。从贫苦出生到身居印度最高权位,对于莫迪来说,周二在印度首都举行的会议令他百感交集。进入国会时,这位63岁的老人俯身亲吻台阶。他表示,人民党取得压倒性胜利表明,印度人民对人民党怀抱希望,充满信心,并全然信任。莫迪对印度未来表示乐观,他呼吁党内人士积极进取,为国奉献,并表示国家兴旺人人有责。阿贾楠•帕斯里查,美国之音新闻,新德里报道。

上周,朝鲜首都平壤发生公寓楼倒塌事件,韩国为此向朝鲜表达了慰问。周二,韩国红十字会通过位于边界停战村板门店的南北双方对话渠道向朝鲜递交了一份信函。朝鲜方面并未透露这栋23层建筑倒塌造成的伤亡人数。但是,韩国方面称,因为这栋建筑有92个房屋单元,所以可能有数百人伤亡。
