From Washington, this is VOA NEWS.

A suicide attack in northern Iraq kills at least twelve, and the US government shutdown up ramping up a fifth day as furloughed workers get hope of back pay. I'm Vincent Bruce reporting from Washington.

At least twelve people reportedly have been killed in Balad, an Iraqi Shi'ite town north of Baghdad in a suicide bomber attack. The attack follows an almost identical incident that killed at least sixteen people at the same cafe six weeks ago. Authorities in Balad say a suicide bomber detonated explosives inside the cafe. No one has claimed responsibility for either attack. In a separate incident on Saturday, a suicide bomber killed nearly fifty Shi'ite pilgrims who were on their way to a prominent Shi'ite shrine.

Some residents of eastern Afghanistan reportedly are angry with the United States after five civilians were killed in what Afghan officials say was a NATO air strike. Initial reports by NATO indicated there were no civilian casualties.

Federal workers who have been furloughed during the government shutdown could be looking at some relief. The Republican-led US House of Representative Saturday afternoon unanimously passed a bill guaranteeing that all federal workers laid off during the government shutdown, up to 800,000 people, will eventually be paid the wages they would've earned if there were no mass furloughs. A partial US government shutdown now is near its sixth day. Congressional Democrats and Republicans differed in resolving the fiscal impacts and each side appears to believe that standing firm will cause the other to relent, thereby propagating the standoff. VOA's Michael Bowman reports from Washington.

Complicating the dispute is the fact that many Democrats and Republican lawmakers both appear to believe their stances will prevail eventually if they maintain party unity and hold out long enough. What Republicans want is to derail President Obama's signature health care law and to shrink the size of government overall. For now, President Obama and Congressional Democrats are speaking with one voice demanding an extension of government funding at reduced levels previously agreed upon. A few Republican lawmakers in the House and Senate have openly questioned their party's tactics, but Republican divisions have yet to become so pronounced as to force House Speaker John Boehner to allow a vote on a simple bill to fund the government. Michael Bowman, VOA NEWS, the Capitol.

US President Obama says US intelligence estimates show Iran is a year or more away from building a nuclear weapon. In an interview with Associated Press, Mr.Obama acknowledged that US estimates are more conservative than those of Israel which says Iran is much closer than that to building an atomic weapon. President Obama also said the world must test whether Iran's President Hassan Rouhani is serious about resolving its nuclear dispute diplomatically.

If I were the prime minister of Israel, I'd be very wary as well of any kind of talk from the Iranians. But what I said to Prime Minister Netanyahu is that the entire point of our setting up sanctions and putting pressure on the Iranian economy was to bring them to the table in a serious way to see if we can resolve this issue diplomatically and we're gonna to test that.

A Kenyan military spokesman has confirmed the names of four men, he says, took apart in last month's deadly Islamist militant attack on a shopping mall in Kenya. He says all four died in a raid.

Officials in southern Somalia say foreign troops staged a pre-dawn attack today on an announced al-Shabab safe house. Sources told VOA that a top al-Qaeda militant working with al-Shabab was the target of the attack in the militant controlled town of Barawe, 250 kilometers south of the capital Mogadishu.

Police in the US capital say a man who set himself on fire Friday on the National Mall has died of his injuries. A Washington police spokesman said the man died Friday night at a local hospital just hours after witnesses say he doused himself with gasoline and set himself ablaze. His identity is not known nor what was his motive for setting himself a fire.

In an interview with Associated Press today, US President Obama said he believes an agreement could be reached quickly to allow an end to the partial government shutdown. Here is his comments.

We can vote to open the government today. We know that there are enough members in the House of Representatives, Democrats and Republicans who are prepared to vote to reopen the government today. The only thing that is keeping that from happening is Speaker Boehner has made a decision that he's gonna to hold out to see if he can get additional concessions from us. And what I've said to him is we are happy to negotiate on anything.

来自华盛顿,这里是VOA新闻

伊拉克北部一名自杀式袭击者造成至少12人死亡,美国政府关门停摆升至第五天,休假的公务员希望获得欠薪。我是文森特·布鲁斯从华盛顿发回报道。

据报道,在伊拉克巴格达北部什叶派小镇巴拉德,一名自杀式炸弹袭击者造成至少12人死亡。这起袭击事件与六周前发生在咖啡馆造成至少16人丧生的那起爆炸事件如出一则。巴拉德当局称,一名自杀式炸弹袭击者在咖啡馆内引爆了炸弹。没有人声称对这两起袭击负责。在周六发生的另一起事件中,一名自杀式炸弹袭击者造成将近50名什叶派朝圣者死亡,当时他们正前往什叶派著名圣地的途中。

在5名平民被杀、而阿富汗当局称这是北约的一次空袭造成的之后,报道称阿富汗东部的一些居民对美国表示愤怒。而北约的初步报道表示没有平民伤亡。

在政府关门期间休假的联邦员工有望获得一些救济。共和党主导的美国众议院在周六下午全体一致地通过了一项法案,确保所有在政府关门期间暂时休假的联邦员工最终将会得到假如没有大休假时所能挣得的工资,这些员工总达80万人。部分美国政府部门停摆现已接近第6天。国会民主和共和两党在解决财政冲击方面存在分歧,而两边似乎都认为坚定立场将能促使对方软化,因而僵局持续。美国之音迈克尔•鲍曼发自华盛顿的报道。

争论复杂化事实上是因为许多民主与共和党的立法者似乎都相信只要能维本党团结并坚持足够长的时间,他们的立场就会最终占上风。共和党想把奥巴马总统签署的医疗法案剔除,并且全面精简政府规模。就目前情况来看,奥巴马总统和国会的民主党人异口同声的要求在最初商定的削减规模上加大对政府的资助。少数参众两院的共和党人公开质疑本党的策略,但是共和党内部的分裂尚未显著,并没有形成力量推动众议院议长约翰·博纳允许就资助政府的简单法案举行投票。迈克尔·鲍曼,VOA新闻,国会大厦报道。

奥巴马总统称美国情报机构的预测显示,伊朗只需一年或一年多的时间就可造出核武器。在美联社的采访中,奥巴马总统承认美国的预测要比以色列的更保守,以色列估计伊朗可以很快制造出原子弹。奥巴马总统也称,世界各国必须检验伊朗总统哈桑•鲁哈尼是否真正地想以外交途径解决核武纷争。

如果我是以色列总理,我将会非常谨慎的与伊朗人进行任何形式的会谈。但是,我想要对内塔尼亚胡总理说的是,对伊朗经济实施制裁并施压的全部重点都是为了以一种严肃的方式将伊朗引向谈判桌,看看是否能用外交途径解决问题,我们就是要做这种尝试。

一名肯尼亚军方发言人已经证实参与上个月发生在肯尼亚一家购物中心的伊斯兰极端分子袭击事件中四名男子的姓名。他称,四人都是在一次突袭中身亡的。

索马里南部官员称,今天外国军队在黎明前对宣称是青年党藏身之地的区域发动攻击。有消息人士告诉VOA称,一名协助青年党的基地组织高级激进分子成为袭击的目标,袭击地点发生在激进分子控制的布拉瓦镇,距离首都摩加迪沙以南约250千米、

美国首都警方证实,周五在国家广场点火自杀的男子因为伤势过重而死亡。一名华盛顿警方发言人称男子周五晚上在一所当地医院死亡,仅在数小时之前,目击者称这名男子往身上淋上汽油点火自杀。他的身份和自杀的动机都尚未确定。
