From Washington, this is VOA news. I'm Dave DeForest reporting.

The U-S president defends his Iran agreement: Barack Obama says the Iran nuclear accord represents the world's best means of ensuring that Iran does not get a nuclear weapon.

“This nuclear deal meets the national security interests of the United States and our allies.  It prevents the most serious threat: Iran obtaining a nuclear weapon…”

Mr. Obama faces wide opposition to the pact, mainly from Republicans.
That was the sound as demonstrators threw Molotov cocktails at police guards in front of Greece's parliament building, as lawmakers began debate on demands by lenders.  European creditors have demanded parliamentary approval of austerity demands as a starting point for negotiations on the new bailout for the debt-ridden country.

Suspected Boko Haram militants have killed at least 45 people in northeastern Nigeria. Witnesses say gunmen stormed the town of Mainok on Monday and killed at least 30 people.  The gunmen set fire to hundreds of houses and one report said some of the dead were burned beyond recognition. Late on Tuesday, gunmen attacked the village of Warsala on the border between Borno and Yobe states. A resident of the village says 15 people were killed.

Ukrainian officials say eight soldiers have been killed and 16 wounded in fighting between government forces and pro-Russian rebels, as it intensifies. The death toll released Wednesday was the highest one-day toll in more than a month. A truce signed by Russia, Ukraine, France and Germany requires both sides to withdraw heavy weapons from the line of fire, but violations are regularly reported on both sides. This is VOA news.

The leader of Afghanistan's Taliban insurgency has endorsed the group's political negotiations with the Kabul government and foreign countries.  Ayaz Gul reports.

"Taliban chief Mullah Omar annually releases messages in connection with the Muslim Eid festival.  But his statement Wednesday offered an unprecedented defense of the recent engagement with Afghan and foreign peace negotiators. The reclusive Taliban leader said the dialogue is a religiously "legitimate" strategy and is part of efforts aimed at driving foreign troops from Afghanistan. Therefore, Mullah Omar says, the Taliban's political endeavors as well as its interactions with Afghans and foreign countries are aimed at bringing an end to the so-called occupation and to establish an independent Islamic system. Ayaz Gul, Islamabad."

A group of human rights organizations has urged U.S. President Barack Obama to use his upcoming trip to Kenya to press the government to improve its human rights record. Human Rights Watch released a letter Wednesday on behalf of 17 rights organizations. The letter said the organizations are concerned that Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta is undermining Kenya's constitution and its commitment to international human rights laws.

The U.S.-based Committee to Protect Journalists has released a report on what it calls the "deteriorating climate for press freedom" in Kenya.  Hilary Heuler reports.

"The report, released Wednesday, paints a bleak picture of Kenya's media, long considered the most robust in East Africa.  It documents cases of journalists being beaten, arrested and intimidated for their work, especially outside the capital, Nairobi. CPJ's Tom Rhodes says that since Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta came to power two years ago, journalism has become a more dangerous profession. Hillary Heuler, Nairobi"

Mexican troops were deployed Wednesday in the municipality of Badiraguato, including roads leading to La Tuna, the birth place of drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman.  Officials are trying to re-capture him following his recent escape from prison. Mexican police are engaged in a manhunt throughout the country, stepping up border security and shutting down an international airport, in addition to setting up checkpoints.

New close-up photos of Pluto, are a surprise to scientists at the U.S. Space Agency, NASA. The region near Pluto's equator reveals a range of young mountains rising as high as 3,500 meters. The mountains are one revelation of New Horizons, the unmanned NASA spacecraft that whizzed by the dwarf planet Tuesday following a nearly 10-year journey.

A German court Wednesday sentenced a 94-year-old former Nazi officer to four years in prison.   Oskar Groening had worked as a bookkeeper in the Auschwitz death camp during World War Two. The court found him guilty of more than 300,000 counts of being an accessory to murder. I’m Dave DeForest. That’s the latest world news from VOA.

【key point】
a range of young mountains rising as high as 3,500 meters.这里的rising应是指山脉的高度,即高达3500米。发回的几张照片很难鉴证一座山脉的上升过程,而且山脉的隆起也应该是个过程,既然是过程,就很难确定一准确的高度。

The mountains are one revelation of New Horizons, the unmanned NASA spacecraft that whizzed by the dwarf planet Tuesda……。后面部分应是前面的原因,







乌克兰官方表示,随着乌政府军和亲俄叛军之间的战斗加剧,已有8名士兵丧生,16人受伤。周三公布的死亡人数是一个多月以来的单日死亡人数最多的。一份由俄罗斯、乌克兰、法国和德国签署的停火协议要求双方将重武器撤离战线。不过,时常有报道称双方均有违反停火协定之举。 VOA新闻报道。
