美国驻阿富汗特别部队将有两周时间来离开具有战略意义的瓦尔达克省,阿富汗总统哈米德·卡尔扎伊之所以采取该决定,是因为与美国特殊部队一道共事的阿富汗人被控有凌辱行为。凯伦·阿伦报道。

President Karzai's spokesman said US special forces would be expelled from the strategically significant province of Wardak within the next two weeks. It comes made allegations that Afghan units which the government says are working and paid for by the US teams are linked to allegations of torture and disappearances. A preliminary investigation also blames them for beheading university students in the province. Wardak has been the focus of recent counter insurgence operations and seen as a gateway for the Taliban to target Kabul. A spokesman for US forces in Afghanistan said they take all allegations of misconducts seriously.

A leading opposition figure in Egypt has called on President Morsi not to go ahead with parliamentary elections in April. In an interview with the BBC, Mohamed ElBaradei said that to do so would risk bringing total chaos and instability to a society that was ready polarized.
埃及一位高对党高层呼吁总统穆尔西不要坚持4月份的议会选举。穆罕默德·埃尔巴拉迪在接受BBC的采访时说,这会令已经分裂的埃及陷入完全的混乱和不安。

We need to send the message loud and clear, to the people here, to the people outside of Egypt, that this is not a democracy, that we have not participated in an uprising two years ago, to end up with, you know, a recycling of the Mubarak regime, when torture still there, when abduction is still there, when a lack of social justice - basic needs. So, I took the decision that we will not participate in a sham election.
我们需要向国内外的人们清楚表示,这不是民主制度,两年前我们开始了起义,而我们的目的并不是重复穆巴拉克政权,不是让拷打、绑架继续存在,不是丧失最基本的社会正义。因此,我认为我们不应该参加这个虚假的选举。

Polling stations are closing in Italy at the end of the first day what has been seen as the country's most important parliamentary election for a generation. There will be a second and final day of voting on Monday. Gavin Hewitt reports.
意大利举行该国几十年来最重要的议会选举,今天是选举第一天,目前投票站已经关闭。周一将进行第二天也是最后一天的投票。盖文·赫威特报道。

The front-runner is the centre-left candidate Pier Luigi Bersani who will make growth rather than an austerity his priority. Europe leaders hope he can form a coalition with Mario Monti - the former unelected prime minister and a man credited with restoring some stability to Italy's government. Silvio Berlusconi may not win, but he does well as in the senate may end up with influence. Much attention will focus on Beppe Grillo - a comedian who is attracting a large protest vote, potentially making it very difficult to form a credible administration.
遥遥领先者是中间左派候选人贝尔萨尼,他将把发展而非紧缩作为重要工作。欧洲领导人们希望他能与前总理蒙蒂组建联盟,蒙蒂曾为意大利政府带来了一定稳定局面,因此赢得赞誉。西尔维奥·贝卢斯科尼可能无法胜出,但他在参议院一样表现不错,也有一定影响力。人们更多关注的是喜剧演员毕普·格里罗,他吸引了很多逆反票,这样使得组建可靠政府的工作更加艰难。
