VOA NEWS

May 8, 2018

(From) Washington, this is VOA news. I'm Christopher Cruise reporting.


The Trump administration is fighting hard for the nomination of Gina Haspel as director of the Central Intelligence Agency.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Monday Haspel is qualified for the position.

"We think all of the issues surrounding her record, her experience, will be brought up. And we're fully confident in her ability to answer those questions."

President Trump tweeted a message of support for Haspel on Monday following earlier news reports that she had offered to withdraw her nominations last week. She had learned that White House officials were worried that her role in the harsh interrogation of terror suspects would keep her from being confirmed by the Senate.

Haspel decided against withdrawing and will face a confirmation hearing this week.


President Trump will announce Tuesday afternoon whether he will pull the U.S. out of the 2015 agreement restricting Iran's nuclear activities in exchange for the dropping of economic sanctions.

Associated Press White House correspondent Sagar Meghani reports.

The president's self-imposed deadline for making the decision is Saturday, but tweets he'll announce it tomorrow. He's been signaling he'll pull out of an agreement he says is one of the worst ever negotiated unless it's revised.

European leaders who also signed on to the deal with Tehran are strongly pushing him not to withdraw, saying they are open to working on a side agreement, but that the nuclear deal's existing framework must not be touched.

A 17-year-old girl who was set on fire after being raped in eastern India is now fighting for her life in a hospital with more than 50 percent of her body covered in burns.

A Turkish court on Monday ordered the continued detention of an American pastor. Andrew Brunson faces 35 years in prison on terrorism and espionage charges. The case has worsened U.S.-Turkish tensions.

The U.S. State Department has labeled the charges "groundless and without credible evidence."

In court, Brunson called the charges "shameful and disgusting."

The case was continued until July 18.


Lava flowing from a volcano in Hawaii continues to cause destruction.

Reuters correspondent Nathan Frandino reports.

A new fissure that opened up on Sunday night is spewing more lava flows and threatening homes near Kilauea volcano on Hawaii's big island.

The Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency says the flows have already destroyed at least 26 homes and forced 1,700 people to evacuate since Kilauea erupted last Thursday.

The latest fissure sits 12 miles from the volcano.

So far, no fatalities or major injuries have been reported. But authorities say that could change at a moment's notice.

There is more lava and gas eruptions expected.

Authorities are taking no chances in warning everyone to stay away.

Reuters correspondent Nathan Frandino, who says some of the more than 1,700 residents who have been evacuated are being allowed to briefly return to gather medicine, pets and other belongings.

There is no indication when the lava might stop or how far it might spread.


A report released Monday by the Anti-Defamation League says millions of anti-Semitic messages on Twitter have spread negative stereotypes and conspiracy theories about Jews across the social media platform.

Associated Press correspondent Ed Donahue reports.

The Anti-Defamation League estimates there are about 81,000 anti-Semitic tweets per week. The report says it's a small number, compared to all the tweets that are sent out. But for Jews, Twitter is a toxic environment.

Twitter says it has made more than 30 changes to its platform, policies and operations in the past 16 months to protect its users from abuse and hateful images.

The ADL says Twitter has made real progress in fighting online hate and harassment.

In an effort to discourage more people from illegally entering the United States, the Trump administration will increase criminal prosecutions of parents doing so and will separate them from their children.

On Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions told a group of police officers if you're smuggling a child, then we will prosecute you, and that child will be separated from you, as required by law. If you don't like that, then don't smuggle children over our border.
