From Washington, this is VOA News.    

I'm Ray Kouguell reporting. 

Fate of Jordanian pilot held by Islamic State still unknown.

Jordan's King Abdullah II says his country is doing everything it can to rescue the captured Jordanian fighter pilot being held by the Islamic State. Amman renewed its pledge to release an Iraqi insurgent on death row in Jordan, Sajida al-Rishawi, if given proof that the pilot is still alive.  The new effort came in the aftermath of the jihadists' beheading of a Japanese journalist. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe called the killing of Kenji Goto an "inhumane and contemptible act of terrorism," and vowed he would never forgive the killers. President Barack Obama described the killing as "heinous murder." 

British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond offered his country's response to the Goto killing:

“We stand together with the people of Japan and indeed with all our allies against terrorism wherever it rears its heads and, and I’d like to send my expression of sympathies to the family, the friends of Kenji Goto and indeed to the people of Japan.” 

Analysts believe the executioner had the same British accent as the killer featured in earlier Islamic State execution videos.

Egypt deported an Al Jazeera journalist back to his home in Australia Sunday, releasing him from more than a year's imprisonment after his conviction of allegedly aiding the banned Muslim Brotherhood.  Peter Greste had been imprisoned for 400 days. He had been sentenced last year to a seven-year term on terrorism-related charges in a trial that human rights groups had described as a sham. An Egyptian security official says a second Al Jazeera journalist arrested with Greste in December 2013, a Canadian-Egyptian, could be deported within days to Canada. He also was serving a seven-year term.

At least seven Lebanese Shi'ite pilgrims were killed Sunday in Damascus when a bomb exploded on a bus carrying them to holy sites in the Syrian capital.  Another 20 pilgrims were wounded.  Syria's al-Qaida affiliate, the Nusra Front, claimed responsibility for the attack.

Fighting continued Sunday in eastern Ukraine as government forces and pro-Russian rebels fought for a strategic transport hub, following the collapse of peace talks aimed at de-escalating the crisis. Authorities in Kiev say at least 13 Ukrainian soldiers and 20 soldiers were wounded, over the past 24 hours, as separatists attacked villages near Debaltseve.  

Ten civilians died in fighting and shelling in the self-declared separatist region of Donetsk and around Luhansk.

Nigeria's military says its forces have repelled the latest attempt by Boko Haram fighters to take over the key northeastern city of Maiduguri. Military officials say many militants were killed during the fighting in the capital of Borno state.  Several civilians also died.   Elsewhere, security sources say a suicide bombing targeting a political meeting in the northeastern Nigerian town of Potiskum killed at least seven people.

The International Organization for Migration is condemning growing violence against foreign nationals and their businesses in several Johannesburg townships.  IOM is calling on the South African government to take urgent action to protect the migrants from xenophobic  attacks.  Lisa Schlein reports from Geneva:

“The International Organization for Migration reports attacks against migrants have now spread beyond Soweto to two other Johannesburg townships; Alexandra and Langlaagte. 

In the past two weeks, IOM reports nine people have been killed in the affected areas, with seven deaths directly linked to the violence between migrants and South Africans.  Spokesman Joel Millman says there are more than 700 documented cases of looting of shops owned by migrants:  

“Prejudices and stereotypes about migrants unfortunately fuel the sentiments of those who choose to loot and plunder the shops of hard-working entrepreneurs simply because of their ethnic background.”  

The IOM says measures must be taken to protect their safety, property and dignity.

Thousands of pro-democracy protesters  returned to the streets of Hong Kong for the first mass demonstration since they shut down parts of the city late last year demanding full democracy in the former British colony. There were no reports of disturbances or arrests.

The biggest annual sporting event in the United States, the National Football League championship known as the Super Bowl, kicks off in 90 minutes from now. The defending-champion Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots will clash at University of Phoenix Stadium in the southwestern state of Arizona. Oddsmakers have made New England a slight favorite to beat Seattle.

That’s the latest world news from VOA.   


以下是美国之声发自华盛顿的报道。

我是Ray Kouguell。

被伊斯兰国拘押的约旦飞行员至今生死未卜。

约旦国王阿卜杜拉二世称约旦正尽一切可能解决被伊斯兰国扣押的约旦籍战斗机飞行员。约旦重申如果有证据证明这名飞行员还活着,将用其关押的被判死刑的伊拉克籍叛乱份子Sajida al-Rishawi来进行交换。这是在圣战份子斩首被俘日本记者之后约旦官方做出的营救努力。日本首相安倍晋三对斩首后藤健二的行为表示愤慨,称这是惨无人道、卑鄙可耻的恐怖主义行为,宣称将对恐怖分子绝不手软。美国总统奥巴马也称该行为是十恶不赦的罪行。

英国外交大臣菲利普•哈蒙德就后藤健二被处决表示道:

“不管恐怖主义在何地蠢蠢欲动、欲复抬头,我们与日本人民、以至所有盟友一起并肩作战。同时,我也向后藤健二的亲友和日本民众表示深深的同情。”

有分析认为,此次视频中的处决者,与之前伊斯兰国恐怖组织处决视频中的刽子手拥有相同的英国口音。

周日,埃及将一名半岛电视台记者遣返澳大利亚。该记者已服刑超过一年,因涉嫌援助被禁的穆斯林兄弟会而锒铛入狱。彼得-格瑞兹已被监禁了400天。去年,他在审判中以与恐怖主义存在关联的罪名被判处7年有期徒刑,这一指控被人权组织称为莫须有的罪名。据埃及一安全官员透露,另一名在2013年12月与格瑞兹同时遭拘留的半岛电视台记者在数日内也得以遣返加拿大。这名记者是加拿大籍埃及人,当时也被判处了7年有期徒刑。这里是美国之音新闻。

周日在大马士革发生的汽车爆炸案中,造成至少有7名什叶派朝圣者死亡,其余20名朝圣者受伤,当时大巴正搭乘他们前往叙利亚首都的圣地。叙利亚基地组织努斯拉阵线宣布对该次袭击事件负责。

继旨在稳定危机局势的和谈破裂后,周日乌克兰东部的战火仍在持续,政府军队和亲俄派叛军正在对一个具有战略意义的交通枢纽进行争夺。基辅当局表示,在过去的24小时内,分裂分子袭击了杰巴利采韦附近的村庄,造成至少13名乌克兰士兵死亡,20名士兵受伤。

10名平民在自称分裂独立的顿涅茨克州和卢甘斯克州的战火中丧生。

尼日利亚军方表示其军队已击退试图占领东北部关键城市迈杜古里的博科圣地武装分子。军方官员称在博尔诺州首都爆发的战争中,多名武装分子身亡,数位平民也因此丧命。另外,据安全部队透露,尼日利亚东北部城镇波蒂斯库姆发生针对一政治会议的自杀性爆炸事件,导致至少7人死亡。

南非约翰内斯堡数个城镇针对外国侨民及其商业活动的暴力行为日益猖獗,国际移民组织对此予以谴责。该组织号召南非政府采取紧急行动,保护外籍人士免受排外袭击的伤害。丽莎-史莱因于日内瓦为您报道。

“国际移民组织报道称,如今不仅是索韦托市内,约翰内斯堡的亚历山大和朗格拉提这两个城镇内也发生了针对移民的袭击事件。”

过去两周,国际移民组织报道,在受影响的地区,有九人死亡,其中七人之死与移民和南非人之间的冲突有直接联系。发言人 Joel Millman表示,商铺抢劫案中超过700起记录在案的店铺是属于移民的。

“对于移民的偏见和陈旧观念很不幸地助长了抢夺者的情绪,他们仅仅因为这些人的种族背景选择了对那些勤劳工作的店主进行抢劫和掠夺。

国际移民组织表示必须要采取措施保护移民的安全,财产和尊严。

美国之音记者Lisa Schlein ,日内瓦报道。”

自去年亲民主示威者要求在前英国殖民地实行全面民主而造成香港部分城区瘫痪以来,成千上万名亲民主示威者再次来到大街上进行首次大规模的游行示威。目前没有关于骚乱和人员被捕的报道。

美国年度最大的体育盛事,全国橄榄球联赛又称超级联赛,将在90分钟后开赛。卫冕冠军西雅图海鹰队和新英格兰爱国者队将在西南部的亚利桑那州凤凰大学体育馆内狭路相逢。赔率制定者设定新英格兰队略胜西雅图。
