本月初一名印度妇女在德里被轮奸,此事已激起民愤,目前这名女子已死去,她的遗体由印度政府的飞机接回国。周六凌晨,这名23岁的医学生因重伤在新加坡死去。当天印度全国数千人发起和平抗议,要求对妇女给予更多保护。Andrew North在德里报道。

They said it went as big as the authorities are think were fearing, but they were significant nonetheless, but the reason for that is because the police amounted a massive operation with thousands deployed across the heart of Delhi, simply to cordon it off, even Metro stations were closed. And I think that's a sign of just how nervous the authorities are at the backlash and, of course, fearing a repeat of the clashes that we saw earlier in the week.
他们称这件事如当局所想的那样令人害怕,但意义重大,这是因为德里中心地区已部署了数千名警察,他们封锁该地区,就连地铁站也关闭了。我想这表明当局对这件事很重视,当然,也害怕本周初的事故再次发生。

The French government says it will drop revised proposals to increase taxes on the country's richest citizens after the original measure was struck down by the constitutional council. The council said the plan for a temporary wealth tax of 75% would create inequalities between households. From Paris, Hugh Schofield.
法国政府称将放弃对该国富人增税的修订议案,原因是原来的措施遭到宪法委员会的否决。委员会称暂行75%的财产税计划会造成家庭之间的不平衡。Hugh Schofield在巴黎报道。

It's the big issue of the moment in France to what extent on the socialist's right or sensible in putting up taxes on the well-off in order to raise money and bring down the budget deficit. Now the country's highest court, the Constitutional Council, has stepped into the row, striking down a centerpiece of President Hollande's tax reforms. Ministers say the essence of the tax hike has not been challenged, so it will go ahead eventually once redrafted. Still it is a big embarrassment for the French government when sloppy drafting leads to the annulment of one of its most emblematic economic measures.
在法国,社会主义者有多大的权利提高富人的税收以增加财政收入并减少预算赤字是个大问题。如今,该国最高法院即宪法委员会在吵闹中否决了总统奥朗德税改方案的核心部分。部长们称并未否定增税的实质内容,因此将在重新起草后付诸实施。法国政府因粗心起草方案导致最具象征性的经济措施遭到否定,实在是一大尴尬。
