VOA新闻:2015-02-11 一名在叙利亚被劫持的美国女性人质死亡

An American woman held hostage in Syria is dead.

The confirmation of 26-year-old Kayla Mueller's death by U-S officials and her family comes four days after Islamist State militants said a coalition air raid killed the aid worker. Terrorists claim the woman died when the airstrike hit a building in the Syrian city of Raqqa. White House Spokesman Josh Earnest says U.S. intelligence analysts have not determined when or how the woman died after being kidnapped in August 2013.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad says his government receives information about U.S.-led airstrikes against Islamic State militants in Syria, but stresses there is no direct cooperation. Mr. Assad told the BBC in Damascus there are exchanges of messages through third parties such as Iraq, but they do not include tactical information. He said Syria would not join the U.S.-led coalition.

The U.S. Embassy in Yemen is closing due to deteriorating security conditions since the resignation of the country's president. A U.S. official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, confirmed Tuesday an earlier statement by Yemeni employees at the embassy in Sana'a.

President Barack Obama called President Vladimir Putin of Russia on Tuesday to address the escalating violence in eastern Ukraine and Russia’s ongoing support for the separatists there. President Obama reiterated America’s support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine. Rocket strikes in the eastern Ukrainian city of Kramatorsk on Tuesday hit the headquarters of the military's operation against Russia-backed separatists and residential areas. The Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council says "preliminary data," shows the rebel rocket attacks killed 15 people.

Russia and Egypt have signed several agreements to reinforce military and economic ties. They were announced at the end of Russian President Vladimir Putin's two-day visit to Cairo. Edward Yeranian reports:

“The audience applauds Russian President Vladimir Putin and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi as they agree to strengthen mutual ties in the face of a growing terrorist threat and outside economic pressures. At a news conference Tuesday, the two leaders also announced a nuclear deal to help Egypt develop its power capabilities. Mr. Putin said both sides had agreed to intensify cooperation in various areas, including Russian investments in Egypt, tourism, and cooperation in the battle against terrorism.

The number of deaths from Ebola is now more than 91-hundred-50 --a sharp increase following weeks in which the outbreak appeared to be weakening. The death toll reported Tuesday by the World Health Organization represents a jump of almost 150 deaths since the agency's last update three days earlier. The highest number of new cases are reported in Liberia, followed by Sierra Leone and Guinea. U.N. special envoy on Ebola, Dr. David Nabarro says the new numbers show the outbreak is not yet under control:

"Good progress is being made, but the outbreak still represents a grave threat and we really hope that there will be no complacency among anybody involved in the response. We have to really work hard to get zero cases, zero transmissions."

The WHO says there is an urgent need to end the outbreak before the wet season begins and access to remote areas becomes more difficult.

Italian authorities say at least 29 African migrants have died of hypothermia while crossing the Mediterranean in freezing weather and rough seas. The Italian coast guard says all the victims were men from sub-Saharan Africa. Another 76 migrants survived the journey, which began on a tightly-packed inflatable boat.

Suspected Boko Haram militants from Nigeria have killed some of the passengers they seized from a bus in Cameroon on Monday. A witness tells VOA that the kidnappers killed seven of the 20 hostages and dumped their bodies on Cameroon's northern boundary with Nigeria. The principal of a government school in the area, says the kidnappers freed three elderly women and are still holding 10 hostages, including eight girls ages 11 to 14.

And Witnesses in central Somalia say at least 12 people were killed and 30 others wounded on Tuesday when a moderate Islamist group clashed with Somali government troops.

伊斯兰国武装分子称四天前,26岁的援救人员Kayla Mueller在联合空袭中遇难,4天后美国官方和其家人确认了她的死亡。恐怖分子宣称她是在叙利亚城市拉卡的一栋大楼被空袭击时死亡的。白宫发言人Josh Earnest称美国情报分析师还未确定Mueller的死亡时间和方式。她是在2013年8月被绑架的。

叙利亚总统 Bashar al-Assad表示政府最近收到有关以美国为首的联盟对叙利亚进行了空袭以打击伊斯兰武装分子的消息,但是消息称联盟国家之间并无直接合作。Assad在大马士革告诉BBC记者,叙利亚与第三方国家如伊拉克之间有信息交流,但并未包括战略方面的消息。他还表示叙利亚不会加入以美国为首的联盟组织。
