The United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon has warned that the situation in Gaza is perilous and has demanded that Hamas stop firing rockets at Israel. He urged the Israeli government to exercise restraint and respect international obligations to protect civilians.

Gaza is on a knife-edge, the deteriorating situation is leading to a downward spiral which could quickly get beyond anyone's control. The risk of violence expanding further's tier is real. Gaza and the region as-a-whole can not afford any other full-blown war.

Mr. Ban is due to brief at an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council on the crisis in Gaza later. Earlier, Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said his country was ready to step up operations against what he called terrorist organizations in Gaza until rocket fire against Israeli targets stopped. The Palestinian politician Mustafa Barghouti said Hamas is acting in self-defence.

Hamas says it's ready to stop all attacks and they called everything they do as in here is in self defence. And they are ready to accept that the problem to them and I'm telling you very clearly. This is what that Americans told us. Israel refuses to stop this operation and now they're preparing a ground operation which could lead this place into a huge massacre.

Iraq has warned the United Nations that Sunni militants have seized nuclear materials used by scientists in the city of Mosul, here is Nick Bryant.

The nuclear materials were seized at Mosul University by ISIS rebels according to a letter sent to Ban Ki-Moon by Iraq's UN ambassador. Some 40 kilograms of uranium compounds were taken which were being used for scientific research. The letter warns that despite the limited amounts involved, the materials could be used in the manufacture of weapons of mass destruction and enable what it calls terrorists groups with sufficient expertise to deploy them either separately or in combination with other materials to carry out attacks.

President Obama has urged parents in Central America not to send unaccompanied children on the dangerous journey through Mexico to try to enter the United States. He called on congress to approve an emergency funding to deal with the problem and said he would consider requests made by Republicans to deploy members of the National Guard along the US-Mexican border.

We have countries that are pretty close to us in which the life chances of children are just far far worse than they are here. And parents who are frightened or are misinformed about what's possible all won't take extraordinary risks on behalf of their kids. The more that we can do to help these countries get their acts together, the less likely we are to have a problem at the borders.

Australia has rejected accusations by Sri Lankan asylum seekers that they were mistreated by Australian officials in the course of being handed back to the authorities in Sri Lanka. The Australian immigration minister Scott Morrison who is on a visit to Sri Lanka, described the allegations as offensive. He defended the return of the 41 Sri Lankans after Australia intercepted that boat in the eastern Indian Ocean.

Police in Brazil say 12 people including the director of World Cup Hospitality Company Ray Whelan have been indicted for illegal ticket selling. Public prosecutors will now decide whether to bring the case to court.

Argentine football fans have been celebrating their team's qualification for a place in the World Cup Final. Argentina played a finally balanced semifinal against the Netherlands in which neither side managed to break down the other's defences. With the score still 0:0 at the end of extra time, the match was decided on penalties. The Argentine player Maxi Rodriguez took the decisive penalty.

This to take Argentina through on a margin of 4 goals to 2. And it's into the net. Cilessen got a hand over the ball but Maxi Rodriguez convert the penalty. And that's the bulletin from BBC News.

perilous :危险的








周边有离我们很近的国家,那里孩子们的生活条件比我们国家差很多。父母如果不是受到惊吓或被误导,他们肯定不会为了孩子冒这么大的风险。我们越努力帮助这些国家团结行动,边界问题就越少。 BBC新闻。
