From Washington, this is VOA News.

Three missing Israeli teenagers found dead. President Obama vows to act alone in immigration changes. I'm Ray Kouguell reporting from Washington.

Israeli security forces have found the bodies of three teenagers who went missing in the West Bank almost three weeks ago. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Hamas is responsible for the killings and that the group will pay a heavy price. Hamas denies any involvement in the teenagers' disappearance. The three vanished while hitchhiking home from school near Hebron on June 12th. Reports say their bodies are found in a nearby village.

The Jihadist militant Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant formally proclaim the establishing of the Caliphate, or Islamic state, in the territory it controls in Iraq and Syria. Edward Yerainian reports.

It was a symbolic declaration and one that many supporters of an Islamic world order have long awaited. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant's spokesman spiced his declaration with verses from the Koran and insisted the Caliphate would be for the glory of the Islamic nation. Abu Mohammad al-Adnani insisted the historic borders of the region including those of Syria and Iraq have now fallen, and proclaimed the group's leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi to be caliph of the self-proclaimed state. He warned Muslims of the region to support him. Edward Yerainian for VOA News, Cairo.

The French President's Office says the leaders of Ukraine and Russia have agreed to work toward a bilateral ceasefire between Kiev and pro-Russian separatist forces as a unilateral ceasefire announced by Kiev on June 20th is set to expire. The statement from French President Francois Hollande's office followed a four-way phone call Monday between Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, Russian President Vladimir Putin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Mr. Hollande. The statement said Mr. Poroshenko and Mr. Putin also agreed to establish effective border control and discuss freeing prisoners.

Pakistan's military is conducting a ground offensive against terrorist hideouts in North Waziristan after two weeks of aerial bombing and evacuation of civilians from the region. Ayaz Gul has more.

After evacuation of all civilian population, the army says its troops and commandos have started a house-to-house search in and around Miranshah, the administrative center of North Waziristan. The army says the initial ground offensive has killed 15 terrorists and found tunnels and bomb-making factories. Islamabad began the counter-terrorism operation on June 15th by bombing suspected targets from the air. Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif ordered the action after peace talks with the Pakistani Taliban collapsed because of repeated terrorist attacks. Ayaz Gul for VOA News, Islamabad.

President Obama is vowing to take executive action to change the country's immigration policies after being told that Republican opponents in Congress will not vote on the contentious issue this year. President Obama says that he's tired of waiting for the House of Representatives to act on a Senate-passed measure approved a year ago that over several years would allow the 11 million illegal immigrants already in the U.S. to become citizens.

I take executive action only when we have a serious problem, a serious issue, and Congress chooses to do nothing.

President Obama will ask the country's top legal official, Attorney General Eric Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to give him recommendations over the next two months on possible immigration changes. He could legally make on his own without Congressional approval.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled for the first time that some private corporations have some right to exercise religious beliefs in the workplace and can refuse to provide female workers with contraceptives that are against the employers' beliefs. The Court ruled Monday in a challenge to one part of the four-year-old health-care law that requires employers to cover contraception for women.

A compensation expert hired by General Motor says the company will offer millions of dollars in compensation to victims of accidents caused by defective ignition switches. Kenneth Feinberg says claims will be paid to people who were driving cars of a specific make, model and year known to have problems with ignition switches.

I'm Ray Kouguell in Washington. That's the latest world news from VOA.


这里是来自华盛顿的美国之音新闻。

以色列三名失踪的青少年被证实死亡。奥巴马总统发誓在移民变动中采取单独行动。Ray Kouguell在华盛顿为您报道。

以色列安全部队日前发现三名青少年尸体,这三名受害者于三周前在约旦河西岸地区失踪。以色列总理本杰明-内塔尼亚胡声称,哈马斯是这起事件的罪魁祸首,他们应当对此付出沉重代价。哈马斯否认了与这起失踪事件的任何关联。这三名青少年在6月12日从学校搭便车回家的途中失踪,事发地点临近希伯伦市。据报道,他们的尸体在临近的村庄被发现。

圣战武装伊拉克和黎凡特伊斯兰国正式宣布在其控制的伊拉克及叙利亚领土范围内成立“哈里发国”,即“伊斯兰国”。爱德华·耶瑞利亚为您报道。

这个公开声明具有象征意义,它是支持建立伊斯兰世界秩序的人长期以来所梦寐以求的。伊拉克和黎凡特伊斯兰国发言人在公开声明中引用《古兰经》的经节,并坚称“哈里发国”将是伊斯兰国家的荣光。阿布-穆罕默德-阿德纳尼坚称,该地区历史上的边界包括现已沦陷的叙利亚和伊拉克国土范围,并奉组织领导人阿布-贝克尔-巴格达迪为该自行成立的国家的最高领袖“哈里发”。他警告当地穆斯林教徒需对其给予支持。美国之音新闻,爱德华·耶瑞利亚在开罗为您报道。

法国总统办公室称,乌克兰与俄罗斯领导人已经同意,在乌克兰于6月20日宣布的单方面停火即将到期时,努力实现基辅与亲俄分裂势力之间的双方面停火。周一,乌克兰总统波罗申科,俄罗斯总统普京,德国总理默克尔,和法国总统奥朗德之间进行了四方电话会议,随后法国总统奥朗德的办公室就发表了该声明。声明宣称波罗申科和普京同意建立有效的边界管控,并商讨释放战犯事宜。

经过两周空袭和平民疏散疏行动后,巴基斯坦军方对藏匿于北瓦济里斯坦地区的恐怖分子发动地面进攻。阿亚兹·古尔为您带来详细报道。

在疏散全部平民后,军方称军队和突击队已经在北瓦济里斯坦的行政中心——米兰沙阿内部和周边地区展开挨家挨户的搜寻行动。军方表示最初的地面进攻已经打死15名恐怖分子并发现了隧道和炸弹制造工厂。伊斯兰堡通过从空中轰炸嫌疑目标展开了6月15日的反恐行动。由于反复的恐怖袭击导致与巴基斯坦塔利班的和谈破裂,之后,总理纳瓦兹·谢里夫下令展开行动。阿亚兹·古尔,VOA新闻,伊斯兰堡报道。

美国总统奥巴马郑重声明,因今年共和党反对派不会针对移民改革这一有争议的议题进行投票,他将采取行政措施,改变国家的移民政策。参议院一年前通过了一项法案,这项法案将在几年内让1100万在美非法移民正式成为美国公民。奥巴马称他已疲于等待众议院对此做出回应。

我只在以下几种情况采取行政措施:我们面临了严峻问题或严肃议题,而议会却选择不做回应的时候。

奥巴马总统向国家最高司法官员——司法部部长艾瑞克哈德,和国土安全部部长杰约翰逊征询两个月后移民法案的修改意见。这样无需国会同意,奥巴马总统可以合法地自主制定移民政策。

美国高院首次裁定一些私企有权在工作场所践行宗教信仰。若违反了宗教信仰,他们可以拒绝向女性员工提供避孕药,周一高院批准通过这一法律,这与实施了四年的医保法案部分条款矛盾。医保法案要求雇主向女性员工提供避孕药。

一名通用汽车雇用的赔偿专家称,公司将对由汽车点火器开关缺陷造成事故的受害者提供百万美元的赔偿。肯尼斯 费恩伯格表示,那些驾驶特定批次、型号和年份,有点火器开关缺陷的车主将得到赔偿。
