Thousands of heavily armed police are searching houses in Boston in an attempt to capture one of the two men suspected of bombing the city’s marathon on Monday. Reports name him as Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, a 19-year-old ethnic Chechen. Police believe he’s hiding in the Cambridge or Watertown neighbourhood of Boston. The suspect’s brother died after a shootout during a car chase with police overnight. Mark Mardell is in Boston.
波士顿数千名全副武装的警察挨家挨户搜查,试图逮捕周一马拉松爆炸案的两名嫌犯之一。报道称此人是19岁的车臣少数民族男子焦哈尔·特萨尔纳伊夫,警方认为他藏在波士顿的剑桥或水镇社区。嫌犯的哥哥在警察夜间汽车追击中死于枪击,马克·马德尔在波士顿报道。

In the dead of night, a ferocious gun battle began. It killed one suspect, but led to a massive manhunt. The city of Boston is frozen in lockdown. About the only people on the streets-- heavily armed police. But there are troops of them searching door-to-door for the bomber who’s still alive. They’ve warned he’s very dangerous. It’s feared he may be wearing a suicide vest. Boston police commissioner Ed Davis warned the people of Watertown not to venture out.
夜深人静时发生了一场激烈的枪战,一名嫌犯被杀,但也使得大规模的追捕由此开始。波士顿市处于以及防范状态,大街上只有全副武装的警察。有的警察挨家挨户寻找仍活着的那名爆炸者,他们警告这名嫌犯处境不妙。警方担心此人可能身穿自杀式背心,波士顿警署总督艾德·戴维斯警告水镇人不要冒险出来。

"We are concerned about securing that area and making sure that this individual is taken into custody. We believe this to be a terrorist. We believe this to be a man who’s come here to kill people. We need to get him in custody.”
“我们关注该地区的安全问题,确保将嫌犯捉拿归案。我们认为这是一名恐怖分子,认为此人来这里是要杀人的,我们必须抓住他。”

That warning was then extended to cover the whole of the Boston area. Businesses are closed. Public transport is shut down.The city is living on its nerves locked inside as a desperate manhunt for a killer continues.
随后整个波士顿地区都发布了这则警告,店铺都关门了,公共交通关闭了。整个波士顿的人呆在家里小心谨慎,而警方不顾一切追捕凶手的行动仍在继续。

The suspect moved to America from the Caucasus about 10 years ago. He and his elder brother lived in Dagestan but are ethnic Chechens. Their father, who now lives in Dagestan, says his sons have been framed. But their uncle, who lives in the US, told an American television that his nephews had brought shame on the family and the Chechens. The Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov said the bombing suspects had no connection with his country.
这名嫌犯10年前从高加索移到美国,他和哥哥曾在达吉斯坦生活过,但仍是车臣少数民族。他们的父亲目前住在达吉斯坦,他说儿子们是被陷害的。但他们生活在美国的叔叔告诉美国电视台,两个侄子令家族和车臣人蒙羞。车臣总统拉姆赞·卡德罗夫说爆炸案嫌犯和车臣毫无关联。

"As far as the Tsarnaev is [the Tsarnaevs/ Tsarnaev brothers are] concerned, we do not know such people. They did not live here. According to the media, including American ones, they lived, studied and grew up in America. It means it’s their American upbringing not ours. Therefore, we bear no responsibility for this.”
“就特萨尔纳伊夫兄弟而言,我们并不认识这两人。他们不生活在这里,据美国等国家的媒体报道,他们在美国生活、学习和长大。这意味着他们是美国人养育大的,不是我们。因此,我们不对此承担责任。”

Kosovo and Serbia have agreed to normalise their relations five years after Kosovo’s ethnic Albanian majority declared independence. The deal was agreed in Brussels after months of negotiations mediated by the European Union. Guy De Launey reports from Belgrade.
5年前,科索沃占多数的阿尔巴尼亚族宣布独立,随后科索沃与塞尔维亚的关系就出现问题,目前两国同意恢复正常关系。在欧盟的斡旋下,经过数月的协商两国在布鲁塞尔达成该协议。Guy De Launey在贝尔格莱德报道。

The deal has only been initialled, but already the spinning has begun. Kosovo’s foreign minister took to Twitter to declare that Serbia had recognised his country’s independence. Meanwhile, Serbian government officials told the media that Kosovo had yielded to all their demands. The agreement basically says that Serbs in northern Kosovo will have their own police and appeal court. But beyond that, there’s none of the autonomy that Serbia had originally been demanding, and certainly no recognition of Kosovo’s independence by Belgrade.
目前两国只是草签了该协议,但两国已经开始付诸行动了。科索沃外长在Twitter上宣布塞尔维亚承认本国的独立,同时,塞尔维亚政府官员告诉媒体,科索沃已放弃所有要求。协议规定科索沃北部的塞尔维亚人将拥有自己的警察和上诉法院。但除此之外,并没有塞尔维亚最初要求的自治权,当然贝尔格莱德也没有承认科索沃的独立。

Nicolas Maduro has been sworn in as president of Venezuela after his narrow victory over the opposition leader Henrique Capriles last Sunday. Dozens of leaders from across the region, Iran and some Arab countries attended the ceremony. The United States, however, has not yet recognised the election.
尼古拉斯·马杜罗上周日在选举中险胜反对派领袖卡普里莱斯,目前他已宣誓就任总统。来自该地区各国、伊朗和一些阿拉伯国家的数十名领导人都参加了仪式,然而美国仍未承认选举结果。

The United States regulators have approved modifications made by the aircraft giant Boeing to the battery system for its 787 Dreamliner, a key step if the plane is to return to the sky after being grounded. The Federal Aviation Administration will now instruct operators to make changes to Dreamliner jets. Here’s our transport correspondent Richard Westcott.
美国监管机构批准航空巨头波音公司对其787梦幻客机电池系统的条款修订,如果该飞机在被禁飞后重新飞行,这将是关键一步。联邦航空管理局将指导操作员对梦幻客机做出修正。交通记者理查德·威斯克报道。

The 787 Dreamliner was grounded around the world in January after two different aeroplanes had problems with their state of the old lithium-ion batteries. One of those batteries caught fire while the plane was being cleaned on the ground in Boston and it took crews more than an hour and a half to control the blaze. Since then safety regulators and Boeing have been working around the clock to find out what caused the fire and how to fix it. Now they still don’t know the cause they may never know, but Boeing has come up with a fix to make sure any future problem wouldn’t risk the safety of the plane.

And Ghanaian health officials have seized more than 100 million faulty condoms, which were given away as part of an Aids-prevention programme.

He told the BBC they were imported via Kenya from a Chinese manufacturer.
