伊拉克选举委员会表示,由世俗性较强的前总理阿拉维领导的政治团体赢得了伊拉克议会选举。阿拉维团体以两票的优势战胜了由现任什叶派总理马利基领导的团队。马利基对选举中可能存在的谬误表示担忧,他还表示将在法庭挑战该选举结果。阿拉伯事务分析家Magdi Abdelhadi报道。

不出所料,该选举结果会使伊拉克进入漫长的政治冲突的境况,而暴力风险从未走远。选举委员会宣布阿拉维领导的团体赢得选举胜利之后,现任总理马利基马上表示拒绝接受该结果。他还一再要求重新计票,甚至要求在所谓“有问题的省份”进行重新投票。在没有有效的政府的情况下,伊拉克难以应对目前的政治冲突。

在宣布选举结果之前,两枚炸弹在巴格达北部的Khalis爆炸,造成至少40人死亡。两次爆炸均发生在一个餐馆外,另外还造成60人受伤。

美国总统奥巴马和俄罗斯总统梅德韦杰夫就削减核武器储备达成一致。在电话会谈中完成该协议之后,奥巴马总统表示,其他国家也应该履行不扩散核武器条约规定的职责。Kevin Connolly报道。

莫斯科和华盛顿之间的核武器削减会谈是世界上最大,最重要的外交问题的时代已经成为历史,但是这仍然是具有重大意义的条约。该条约进一步降低了对双方可以部署的核弹头,导弹,潜艇和轰炸机的数量限制。奥巴马曾经谈到建造无核世界的梦想,对他来说,该条约还进一步传达了这个现代关键问题的强烈信号。白宫相信,如果美国首先削减自己的核装备,那么,试图阻止伊朗和朝鲜获得核武器的努力将会得到加强。

以色列军方表示,士兵在加沙地带南部与巴勒斯坦战士发生冲突,造成两名以色列士兵死亡,另外两人受伤。以色列表示,试图在边境安装炸药的巴勒斯坦人也被击毙。我们的中东记者Jon Donnison在耶路撒冷报道。

冲突的起因是,加沙地带好战组织企图再俘获一名以色列士兵。此前,被俘的以色列士兵Gilad Shalit已被他们关押了三年多的时间。加沙地带当地消息来源称,以色列侵入加沙地带之后,冲突随即爆发。在加沙地带,这种冲突相对来说比较频繁。加沙地带好战分子似乎还想抓获至少两名以色列士兵。哈马斯好战分子已经声称对两名以色列士兵的死亡负责,但是表示这是出于自卫。

据报道,冲突过后,以色列坦克已经进入加沙地带。

韩国一艘军舰在与朝鲜有争议的海上边境附近沉没。该事件最初引起人们对冲突的担忧,韩国首都首尔还召开了特别安全会议。但是韩国官员随后表示,目前还不清楚此事是否与朝鲜有关。John Subworth在韩国报道。

过去几年,在朝鲜半岛西部海岸海上边境,朝鲜和韩国海军之间经常发生激烈交火。所以,有媒体猜测朝鲜可能与该船只的沉默有关。但是目前为止,韩国政府非常谨慎,他们表示,船只沉没原因仍然不清楚,当务之急是进行搜救行动。尽管只是预防措施,韩国首都首尔的警力已经处于高度戒备状态。

乌干达警方表示,在悼念一系列王室陵墓被大火烧毁的仪式上发生踩踏事件,造成一人死亡。首都坎帕拉卡郊外苏比王陵举行为期一周的纪念活动,今天是最后一天,数千人参加了该仪式。这些王陵是联合国教科文组织世界遗产,一直是乌干达最大的传统王国各位国王的埋葬地点。

Health care reform enters a new era in about two hours. President Obama is scheduled to sign that bill into law. Then, he is going to travel around the country to sell the plan to skeptics. But Republicans say that battle is on to get ready for legal challenges, nearly a dozen states plan to argue that it's not constitutional. As early as tomorrow, the debate moves to the Senate where lawmakers will consider a companion measure, and Republicans plan, parliamentary objections that could change that bill and force it back to the House. Now, even before the first votes were cast in the health care debate, Barack

Obama's overall approval rating dropped to his lowest level ever recorded in a CNN poll. Check out the results of the CNN/Opinion Research Corporation Poll conducted between last Friday and Sunday, when asked how he is handling the job as president, 46 percent approved, just over a half disapproved.Late (ph) for the numbers of health care reform, it will offer insurance to 32 million Americans who currently are not covered. You are about to meet one of them. Kalila Kelley (ph) was born without the frontal lobes of her brain. At 12 years old, she has the physical and mental abilities of an infant. Within a few months, the government will subsidize a private insurance plan for her and others who are uninsurable because of preexisting conditions.

NEKIA KELLEY, PARENT: Her condition causes her to seize constantly. So, therefore, that's an automatic no, you know, because seizures can cause death and so on and so forth. So, they don't want to ensure her. It's frustrating, because I can't get her covered, and it's frustrating that the coverage that she is getting currently through Medicaid is not substantial enough.

ELIZABETH BURAK, ARKANSAS ADVOCATE FOR CHILDREN & FAMILIES: This is a huge, huge win for Arkansas' kids and families. I hope the next few years, virtually, every family will have access to some sort of affordable coverage.
