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.
