BBC News with Jonathan Izard

A Syrian opposition delegate arriving in Switzerland for a peace conference has called for President Assad and his government to stand trial of the International Criminal Court in the light of newly released photographic evidence. It's suggested that the government has starved, tortured and killed about 11,000 prisoners in detention centers. A spokesman for the Syrian government said the report was a political instrument to put pressure on President Assad. The conferences in Montreux on Wednesday will bring together for the first time representatives from the government and the main opposition umbrella group, the National Coalition. Bridget Kendall reports from Montreux.

It’s no coincidence that this new report has been released on the eve of the Swiss talks. For President Assad's opponents had reinforced their claim that his regime is murderous and criminal. But the UN Secretary General won't want his peace talks to collapse into a shouting match, already this talk of possible local truces and humanitarian access to besieged areas. But even that may be a tall order given uncertainty that the Assad government will make real concessions and the lack of sway, the opposition delegation has over many rebel groups fighting in Syria.

One of the main parties in the Libyan government has withdrawn its five ministers in protest against the policies of the Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zeidan. The Justice and Construction Party which has linked to the Muslim Brotherhood holds Mr. Zeidan responsible for the deteriorating security conditions in the country. Mr. Zeidan has again said he will not step down. Rana Jawad reports from Tripoli.

The Justice and Construction Party, the Muslim Brotherhood's political arm has withdrawn its five ministers serving in the cabinet. These include the Ministers of Economy, Oil and Electricity. The latest announcement comes after repeated failed attempts within the country's legislative body, the National Congress to secure a no-confidence vote against the Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zeidan. The latest political developments are likely to introduce bigger challenges in Libya's continuous trouble to rebuild its institutions and to stabilize the country.

A senior Vatican churchman and accountant has been served with an arrest warrant on charges of money laundering and fraud. Prosecutors allege Monsignor Nunzio Scarano siphoned off charitable donations made to a home for the terminally ill in southern Italy to pay off his mortgage. Monsignor Scarano was already under house arrest and on trial for an alleged plot to smuggle 20 million dollars from Switzerland.

In its latest assessment, the International Monetary Fund says the global economic recovery is strengthening but warns that the improvement is also weak and uneven. The IMF has raised its growth forecast for this year and predicts accelerating expansion after that, but it says that as recovery takes hold in rich countries, notably the United States stimulus policies will be curtailed which could disrupt financial markets. The IMF predicts that emerging economies will ultimately benefit because increasingly confident richer nations will buy more from them.

The Georgian government has accused Russia of moving its border 11 kilometers inside the breakaway Georgian territory of Abkhazia for the duration of the Winter Olympic Games. The Foreign Ministry in Tbilisi says it's deeply concerned about what it calls the "illegal expansion" into land that was a focus of a war between Russia and Georgia in 2008." Rayhan Demytrie reports from Tbilisi.

In its statement, the Georgian Foreign Ministry said Russia's decision to move its border deeper into Abkhazia was an "illegal expansion" into Georgia sovereign territory and the violation of international law.

Abkhazia, a breakaway region internationally recognized as part of Georgia is situated close to the Russian city of Sochi which hosting the Winter Olympics early next month. As part of its extensive security measures ahead of the Games, Russia has created a temporary border zone expanding 11 kilometers into several Abkhaz settlements. The area will be patrolled by Abkhaz security forces and local residents will have to carry ID cards at all time.

The court of appeal in France has upheld a ruling that will grant the first compensation payments to women fitted with defective breast implants. It concerns a Germany company TUV Rheinland which certified the implants. Christian Fraser reports from Paris.

The appeal court upheld a lower court decision that the TUV Rheinland, the German company that certified PIP implants must start making interim compensation payments now to over 1,600 women who were part of the first class action. TUV has wanted to delay the initial payments of 3,000 euros per victim until a broader appeal heard later this year on the decision they were part responsible.

World football governing body FIFA has warned the Brazilian authorities that the southern city of Curitiba may be excluded from this year's World Cup.

BBC新闻,乔纳森·伊扎德报道。

由于最近披露的影像证据,一名到瑞士参加和平会议的叙反对派代表,要求总统阿萨德及其政府在国际刑事法院受审。该证据表明叙政府在拘留中心饿死,折磨并杀害了大约11,000名囚犯。叙政府的一名发言人表示,该报道是对总统阿萨德施压的政治工具。周三在蒙特勒举行的会议将首次让叙政府和主要反对派综合集团——叙利亚全国联盟的代表们齐聚一堂。布里吉特·堪黛儿从蒙特勒发回报道。

该报告出现在瑞士和谈前夜绝非巧合。对于阿萨德总统的反对力量来说,该报告进一步强化了他们的说词:阿萨德政府是一个残忍而罪恶的政权。但联合国秘书长并不希望此次和谈陷入争执,而是希望达到局部地区停火及人道主义援救进入围攻地区的目的。但即使这样的目标也难以实现,阿萨德是否会做出让步、政府因反对派力量在叙利亚参战的叛军过多而不能控制局面等因素都让前景变得不可确定。

在反利比亚总理阿里·扎伊丹政策中,利比亚政府中一个主要政党撤出了5名部长。与穆斯林兄弟会有联系的正义和建设党坚持认为扎伊丹要对利比亚安全环境的恶化负责。扎伊丹再次表示他不会辞职。Rana Jawad在的黎波里报道。

穆斯林兄弟会的政治党派“公正与建设党”撤回了在经济、石油和电力等部门效力于内阁的五名部长。在国家的立法机关——国会试图发起针对利比亚总理阿里·扎伊丹的不信任投票屡次失败之后,这则最新通告随即发布。最新的政治进展可能会为利比亚政府机构的重建和国家稳定带来更大挑战。

一名在梵蒂冈担任会计的资深神职人员因涉嫌洗钱与欺诈而遭通辑。检察官称,牧师努兹奥·西格拉努挪用为意大利南部的临终病人所募集的善款来为自己偿还贷款。西格拉努牧师现已被软禁,并因涉嫌密谋从瑞士私带2千万美元而受审。

世界货币基金组织在其最新评测中表示,全球经济复苏态势增强,但同时警告称该增长仍是脆弱及不的。世界货币基金组织调高了其今年的增长预期,并预测其后会出现加速膨胀,但称复苏主要是在一些富国,特别是美国的经济刺激政策减缓可能会扰乱金融市场。世界货币基金组织预测,一些新兴经济体将最终获益,因为信心日益增长的发达国家将从这些国家购买更多商品。来自BBC新闻

俄罗斯为举办冬奥会将边界向格鲁吉亚的分裂领土阿布哈兹挪动了11公里,格鲁吉亚政府对此提出指控。第比利斯外交部表示,格鲁吉亚对俄的“非法扩张”深感忧虑。阿布哈兹是俄罗斯与格鲁吉亚在2008年交战的主要原因。瑞汗·德米特里自第比利斯报道。

格鲁吉亚外交部发表声明称,俄罗斯向阿布哈兹移动边界的决定是向格鲁吉亚主权领土的“非法扩张”行为,并违反了国际法。

阿布哈兹被国际社会认定为属于格鲁吉亚的分裂领土,它邻近下月举办本届冬奥会的俄罗斯索契市。俄罗斯在近日强化冬奥会的安保措施时,将其临时边境区向阿布哈兹几个定居点挪动了11公里。该区域将由阿布哈兹安全部队进行巡查,而当地居民必须随身携带身份证。

法国一上诉法庭支持对植入伪劣隆胸填充物的妇女进行首次赔偿的决定。该裁决令德国莱茵集团感到担忧,这种填充物正是由该集团认证的。克里斯蒂安·法索自巴黎报道。

上诉法院维持下级法院判决,负责隆胸假体质检的德国莱茵公司需向超过1600名接受首批隆胸手术的女性发放临时赔偿金。法院判决莱茵公司负部分责任,该公司以截至目前赔偿呼声较小为由,希望推迟发放首批每人3000欧元的赔偿金。

国际足联警告巴西政府,或将取消库里提巴(巴西东南部城市)本届世界杯的参赛资格。国际足协秘书长瓦尔卡称目前形势微妙,关于是否保留库里提巴世界杯东道主资格,足协将在本月内发表相关声明。
