Gunmen in Pakistan have killed a senior member of Imran Khan's Movement for Justice Party outside her home in the city of Karachi. Zahra Shahid Hussain was shot twice in the head. The killing took place on the eve of a fiercely contested partial re-run of the votes in Karachi following last Saturday's election. Shahzeb Jillani reports.
巴基斯坦武装分子杀害伊姆兰汗的正义运动党高级成员,案发地是遇害者在卡拉奇的家房外。萨拉·舍希德·侯赛因头部中了两枪,上周六举行了选举,但卡拉奇即将对部分选票重新选举,此事引起了激烈争议。Shahzeb Jillani报道。

Zahra Shahid Hussain was 60 years old. She was the senior vice-president of Imran Khan's party. Initial reports suggested that it may have been a case of robbery. But later we are hearing that the gunmen try to snatch home a mobile phone of hers and then shot her in the head at a close range, which gives rise to suspicion that this was actually a targeted attack. It was a murder. Imran Khan has been quick to point a finger at MQM party, which dominates Karachi's politics. MQM has denied any involvement.
萨拉·舍希德·侯赛因现年60岁,她是正义运动党副主席。最初的报道称这是一起抢劫案,但随后我们听说枪手试图抢走她的手机,然后近距离对她开枪,这让人怀疑这是有针对性的袭击,是一场谋杀。伊姆兰·罕当即指出统领卡拉奇政界的MQM党有嫌疑,但MQM否认参与此案。

The authorities in Ivory Coast have arrested a militia leader accused of participating in one of the worst massacres during post-election violence in 2011. Human rights groups say Amade Oueremi's fighters executed hundreds of supporters of the former President Laurent Gbagbo in the western town of Duekoue. Our Africa editor Richard Hamilton reports.
科特迪瓦当局逮捕一名民兵领袖,此人涉嫌参与2011年选举后暴力期间的大屠杀。人权组织称Amade Oueremi的武装人员在西部城镇杜奎处决了前总统洛朗·巴博的数百名支持者。非洲编辑理查德·汉密尔顿报道。

Amade Oueremi was detained in a village close to a national park where he'd been based for more than 20 years. Some reports suggested he turned himself in. Human rights groups had criticized the new government's failure to arrest Mr. Oueremi, saying that it showed it was not pursuing justice against both sides in the conflict. Around 3,000 people were killed in Ivory Coast after Laurent Gbagbo refused to acknowledge that his rival Alassane Ouattara had won a presidential run-off. Mr. Gbagbo is currently awaiting trial at the International Criminal Court.
Amade Oueremi是在国家公园附近的村庄被捕的,他在那里已经驻扎20多年。有报道称他是自首的,人权组织批评新政府未能逮捕Oueremi,称这说明政府未能追究冲突双方的责任并伸张正义。由于洛朗·巴博拒绝承认其对手乌阿塔哈赢得总统决胜选举,有3000多人被杀。巴博目前正等待国际刑事法庭的审判。

The Nigerian military says it has arrested 65 Islamist militants as it continues its operation in the northeast of the country. There's been no independent confirmation. Will Ross is in Abuja.
尼日利亚军方称逮捕了65名仍在该国东北部兴风作浪的伊斯兰武装分子,目前尚未对该消息进行独立确认。威尔·罗斯在阿布贾报道。

The Nigerian military says 65 people were apprehended as they try to reach the town of Maiduguri. All the men were described in the statement as terrorists. In some areas of Maiduguri, which has a strong Boko Haram presence, the army has now extended the night-time curfew to 24 hours. The BBC has also received reports of civilians fleeing remote towns of Borno state as a result of the military offensive. They've been arriving in towns on the Cameroonian border.
尼日利亚军方称这65人是在试图抵达迈杜古里镇被捕的,军方在声明中称所有这些人都是恐怖分子。博科圣地组织在迈杜古里势力很大,在该镇的有些地区,军方目前将宵禁延长到24小时。BBC接到报道称,由于军事进攻,博尔诺州的平民正在逃离这个偏远地区,他们来到与喀麦隆接壤的城镇。

Syrian state television says a powerful explosion has hit the capital Damascus. There're reported to be a number of casualties caused by the blast in the northern neighborhood of Ruken Al Deen. And reports from Syria say the father of a deputy Foreign minister Faisal Mekdad has been kidnapped in the southern province of Daraa. Government and opposition sources said the man in his 80s was abducted from his village.
叙利亚国家电视台称首都大马士革发生严重爆炸案,据悉北部社区Ruken Al Deen发生爆炸,导致多起伤亡。来自叙利亚的报道称副外长Faisal Mekdad之父在南部城市德拉遭绑架。政府和反对派都称这位80多岁的老人是在村庄被绑架的。

"The damage's absolutely staggering. The sides of cars are torn away like ribbons of cloths. Tons of metal tossed around like toy things. Insides of the cars are shattered.
