From Washington, this is VOA news.

Preliminary results are released from Afghanistan’s presidential runoff election. And Germany’s leader expresses concern about allegations of a German intelligence officer spying for the United States. I’m Michael Lipin reporting from Washington.

Afghan authorities have released preliminary results from last month’s presidential runoff election showing Finance Minister Ashraf Gahni well ahead of his rival Abdullah Abdullah who led the first round of voting. Abdullah has accused Gahni supporters of carrying out massive fraud. Ayaz Gul has more from Islamabad.

“The results were supposed to be announced last week but recounts at nearly 2000 polling stations where fraud was alleged, forced the Afghan Independent Election Commission to delay them for a few days. Even on Monday, journalists had to wait for several hours before commission chief Ahmad Yousof Nooristani arrived to declare the results. He said that more than 8 million Afghan voters in the runoff election and that over 56% of the tally went to Ashraf Gahni while his rival Abdullah Abdullah received approximately 44%. However the chief election commissioner cautioned against drawing any conclusions at this stage. Nooristani says the announcement of preliminary results does not mean that the leading candidate is the winner, adding that proving to rigging complaints might change the outcome. Ayaz Gul for VOA news, Islamabad.”

The United States says it will work with Germany to resolve concerns about whether a German intelligence employee was a double agent spying for Washington. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Monday the US relationship with Germany is broad and important, but he added that he could not comment on intelligence matters. German chancellor Angela Merkel spoke about the issue while on a visit to Beijing. She said the reports that a Germany intelligence employee spying for the United States was the serious case if they are proven to be true, the German federal prosecutor is investigating, the allegations are true, the case would be a clear contradiction of trust and cooperation between agencies and partners. Those comments were Ms. Merkel’s first public remarks since German authorities arrested the 31-year-old man suspected of being a double agent last week.

A strong earthquake has struck Guatemala in southern Mexico, killing at least 5 people. The US Geological Survey says the 6.9 magnitude quake was centered in the Pacific Ocean, 8 kilometers off the coast of southern Mexico near the border with Guatemala. The early Monday quake damaged homes, hospitals and churches, triggered landslides and caused power outrages in Guatemala and Mexico’s Chiapas and Tabasco states.

Guatemalan firefighters say at least 2 people were killed when their homes collapsed in a town of Pati, in the border province of San Marcos.

Dozens of Nigerian women and girls kidnapped by militant group Boko Haram two weeks ago have escaped from their capturers. A vigilante fighting against Boko Haram says about 60 of the captives fled on Friday after the militants left camp to attack a Nigerian military barrack and police station in the town of the Damboa. The female hostages were abducted when Boko Haram attacked the village of Kurmmabza in northern Borno  state on June 18th, killing more than 30 men and burning the village to the ground. Boko Haram is still holding more than 200 teenage girls that kidnapped from the village of Chibok in April.

And an American Naval crew has begun destroying Syrian chemical weapons on board US containership in the Mediterranean. Pentagon says it will take about two months to destroy the 600 metric tons of chemical agents, which include mustard gas and the raw materials for Sarin nerve gas. The US ship Cape Ray is equipped with a system that uses water and sodium hydroxide to make the chemicals safe enough to be disposed of at commercial sites.

美国之音新闻,华盛顿报道。

阿富汗的总统决选有了初步结果。德国领导人就一名德国情报人员为美国从事间谍活动的指控表达了关注。我是 迈克尔·李平 ,华盛顿报道。

阿富汗当局已公布了来自上个月的总统决选的初步结果,结果显示财政部长阿什拉夫·加尼的选票远远领先在第一轮选举中领先的阿卜杜拉·阿卜杜拉。阿卜杜拉已指控加尼支持者实施大规模的舞弊行为。阿亚兹·古尔从伊斯兰堡为您带来更多消息。

阿富汗独立选举委员会本该在上周就公布选举结果,然而因有举报称选举涉嫌舞弊,近2000个投票站需要被重新计票,公布时间也不得不被相应推迟数日。即使在周一,记者也苦苦等待了数个小时才等到了委员会主席Ahmad Yousof Nooristani的到来,选举结果由他来公布。他宣布,此次总统决选有超过800万名阿富汗选民参加,其中超过56%的人把票投给了阿什拉夫-加尼,另外将近44%的人投给了他的对手阿卜杜拉-阿卜杜拉。然而,这位选举委员会主席告诫媒体不要轻易在这个阶段就下任何定论。Nooristani表示,初步结果的公示并不意味着领先者就是赢家,而且一旦操纵选票的指控被证实,结果可能会有变数。这里是美国之音新闻,Ayaz Gul在伊斯兰堡为您报道。

美国表示将会与德国合作,调查德国情报部门一工作人员是否是为美国政府工作的双面间谍。白宫发言人约瑟·厄内斯特周一表示美国与德国的关系是广泛而重要的,但是他又称他无法对这起情报事件作任何评论。德国总理默克尔在访问中国期间谈及此事,她表示,若报道称德国情报部门一工作人员为美国间谍一事一旦被证实为真,那么该事件将非常严重。德国联邦检察官正在调查此事,如果属实,该事件将导致德国情报机构同合作伙伴之间在信任与协作上产生隔阂。双面间谍嫌疑人是一名31岁的男子,于上周被捕,这是默克尔在其被捕后首次在公开场合发表评论。

位于墨西哥南部的国家危地马拉发生强震,造成至少5人死亡。美国地质调查局表示,此次6.9级地震主要集中在太平洋地区,位于临近危地马拉边境的墨西哥南部海岸线8千米开外处。发生在周一凌晨的这场地震毁坏了大量房屋,医院以及教堂,引发了山体滑坡,并造成危地马拉以及墨西哥的恰帕斯州和塔巴斯科州电力中断。

危地马拉消防员称,在边界省份圣马科斯省的帕蒂镇内,有至少2人在其房屋倒塌时丧生。

两周前被激进组织博科圣地绑架的几十名妇女和女孩已逃出魔掌。一名抗击博科圣地的治安员称在激进分子离开营地去袭击丹博阿镇的一所尼日利亚军营和警署后,约有60名被虏者在周五得以逃脱。这些女性人质是博科圣地在6月18日袭击北部的博尔诺州库马布扎(Kurmmabza)村时被绑架的,30多名男子被杀,村庄付之一炬。博科圣地仍劫持有4月份在奇博克村(Chibok)绑架的200多名年轻女孩。

美国海军船员开始在地中海的美国集装箱船上销毁叙利亚化武。美国国防部称要销毁包括芥子气和沙林神经毒气原材料在内的600吨化学试剂需耗时约两个月。美国货轮开普雷号上配备一套使用水和氢氧化钠的系统,能将化武处理得足够安全可在商业区处理。
