“使馆附近的这场自杀式爆炸显然是恐怖行为,是恐怖主义者的袭击。然而,我们目前尚不清楚袭击者,也不知道其动机何在。这场袭击显然是恐怖行径。”

Outside Mr Morsi's palace in northern Cairo, the night sky is lit up by fireworks and patrol bombs thrown by protesters and the white trails of teargas fired by the security forces. There are also skirmishes close to Tahrir Squre in the heart of the capital. Earlier thousands of people took to the streets after youth groups called for demonstrations against the Islamist leader who they are accuse of betraying the value of their uprising two years ago.

Rescue teams in Mexico City are still sifting through rubble at the heavily damaged headquarters of the state oil company Pemex to try to find anyone who could remain trapped there after Thursday’s explosion. At least 33 people are now known to have been killed and over 100 injured in the explosion which severely damaged the high-rise building. The head of Pemex said it was still too early to determine the cause of the blast.

Heavily armoured columns of French troops are pouring into northern Mali in the newest phase of the operation against Islamist militants. It’s important for the future of the country as Mark Doyle reports from Mali.
大批装备精良的法国士兵冲向马里北部,开始与伊斯兰武装分子作战的新阶段。此次行动对该国的未来非常重要,马克·多伊勒在马里报道。

This military deployment signals the next phase in the war against the Islamic militants. The first French tactic was airstrikes—Mirage jets dropped guided bombs on buildings across northern Mali that had been occupied by the Islamists. But because the Malian army was chased out of the north by the Islamists last year, it also left a power vacuum. This is the vacuum the new French deployment hopes to fill. Soldiers from an African force are also beginning to deploy here. But as these allied armies establish their presence, it seems likely some of the Islamists will also regroup.
这次军事部署标志着与伊斯兰武装分子作战的新阶段,法国的第一个策略是空袭,在之前被伊斯兰占领的马里北部地区,幻影战斗机向各处建筑投掷制导炸弹。但由于马里部队已于去年被逐出北部,目前该地区处于权力真空期。法国新的军事行动希望能填补这个空缺,非洲部队的士兵也将开始在该地区进行部署。但随着盟军开始扩大势力,一些伊斯兰分子也有可能再次建立组织。

In what the French are calling the first deal of its kind ever, Google and media companies in France have settled a long-running dispute over the internet search giant’s right to use content it hasn’t produced. Google has agreed to set up an $82m fund to help old media to adapt to the digital age. Dayan Radosevich reports.
谷歌与法国的媒体公司化解了一项争论已久的事宜,允许谷歌这个网络搜索巨头使用非自己创造的内容,法国称这是法国的首个此类协议。谷歌同意成立8200万美元的基金来帮助旧媒体适应数字时代。Dayan Radosevich报道。

President Hollande’s office said France was proud to be the first country in the world to sign this deal with Google. It came after months of negotiations and threats by the government in Paris that it would pass a law targeting the internet giant. French news websites had demanded a share of advertising revenues that Google earns by providing links to their content. The search engine reportedly rejected the idea under grounds that it would threaten its very existence. In the end, it seems they’ve met somewhere in the middle.
