The security forces in the Yemeni capital Sanaa have opened fire with machine guns on tens of thousands of anti-government protesters, killing at least 25 people and injuring hundreds more.

The new upsurge in violence happened as the Yemeni opposition stepped up protests, calling on President Ali Abdullah Saleh to hand over power. Witnesses said tens of thousands, or by some accounts more than 100,000 opposition supporters came out onto the streets of the capital and a number of other towns and cities. As a huge crowd surged towards the presidential palace, witnesses described how the security forces opened fire with machine guns and even anti-aircraft weapons.

A BBC investigation has heard allegations of the abuse of African migrant workers in Libya by anti-Gaddafi forces. Interviews detailed a violent campaign of intimidation against the black migrant community with hundreds of men imprisoned accused of being mercenaries for Colonel Gaddafi, and women and girls beaten and raped. Ian Pannell heard from one of the victims.
BBC一个调查小组听取了利比亚反卡扎菲力量虐待非洲移民工人的指控。调查详细描述了针对黑人移民社区的暴力恐吓活动,数百名男子被指控为卡扎菲上校担任雇佣兵而被监禁,妇女和女孩被殴打和强奸。Ian Pannell听了其中一名受害者的描述。
In a particularly brutal case, 20 fighters allegedly broke into one house, searching for mercenaries. They beat the people living there, stole their possessions, dragged the father of the house away and then raped his 16-year-old daughter.
在一个极其残暴的案件中,20名战士闯入一个家庭搜索雇佣兵。他们殴打了住在这里的人,盗窃了他们的财产,把父亲拖出房子,强奸了16岁的女儿。
"They locked my father and my mother inside the toilet. Six of them, they raped me. They took our belongings. My father tried to stop them. They hit my father with gun and carried him away. Since that day, I've not heard from my father. He's nowhere to be found."
“他们把我的父母锁在厕所内。六个人轮奸了我。他们拿走了我们的财产。我的父亲试图制止他们。他们用枪打我父亲,后来把他带走了。自那天以后,我再也没有听到父亲的消息。我们找不到他。”
In his first interview since losing his job as the head of the International Monetary Fund, Dominique Strauss-Kahn has admitted that he was morally at fault when he had sex with a hotel maid in New York, but he told French television that he hadn't raped her. From Paris, Christian Fraser reports.
自辞去国际货币基金组织总裁以来的第一次采访中,卡恩承认他在纽约与一名酒店女服务员存在暧昧关系在道德方面有错。但是他告诉法国电视台,他并没有强奸这名女服务员。Christian Fraser在巴黎报道。
If Dominique Strauss-Kahn still harbours any ambitions as a politician - and from the tenor of this interview, clearly he does - then this was a performance that ticked all the right boxes. There was humility: first an apology to his wife, Anne Sinclair, who has stood so loyally by him; and second to the French people, with whom he said "I have missed my appointment", referring to his aborted campaign to run for president. He admitted his actions in the Manhattan hotel room were a "moral failing", but he denied passionately quoting from the prosecutor's report in his hand that he sexually assaulted the maid.
如果卡恩作为一名政治家仍然藏有雄心的话——从采访中可以看出很明显他还有——这种表现是完全正确的选择。他非常谦卑:首先向一直忠诚地支持他的妻子Anne Sinclair道歉;然后向法国人民道歉,他说,“我辜负了大家的期望”,他指的是竞选总统的活动被迫中断。他承认自己在曼哈顿酒店房间作出了“不道德的行为”,但是他强烈否认检控官报告中所说的性侵犯这名女服务员。

A small group of online gamers has solved a problem that's baffled scientists for a decade. The gamers, who call themselves the Contenders, used a video game called Foldit to produce a three-dimensional image of an enzyme of an Aids-like virus. It took them just three weeks. Scientists say the breakthrough will provide new insights into the design of antiretroviral drugs for people with HIV.

About 50 women wearing miniskirts, tank tops and tight leggings gathered in the centre of Jakarta. They carried placards reading "My miniskirt, my right" and "Don't tell us how to dress, tell them not to rape". They were furious about comments last Friday by the Jakarta city governor suggesting that women who wore tight or revealing clothing were to blame for an increase in the number of rapes on public transport. The governor quickly apologised, but his comments were publicised widely.
身穿迷你裙,吊带衫和丝袜的大约50名女子在雅加达中部聚集。他们举着大幅标语“穿迷你裙是我们的权利”“不要告诉我们怎么着装,告诉他们不要强奸”。上周五,雅加达地方长官评论称,最近公共交通工具上强奸案的增加是由于女性身穿紧身或暴露的服装。女性们对此非常愤怒。这位长官立即道歉,但是他的言论已经广为人知。
