由于土耳其总理雷杰普·塔伊普·埃尔多安拒绝放弃在该市重建一座公园的要求,几小时后,数千名抗议者聚集在伊斯坦布尔塔克西姆广场。他说极端分子操纵了这场游行,上周先从环境抗议开始。詹姆斯·雷诺兹在伊斯坦布尔报道。

A lot of them just sitting on the verges of the park, others are chanting as one group which have been dancing a tango, other people are buying slices of watermelon and having barbeques. Most people here say that they will continue to protest and to come here in order to stop the government for redeveloping this area. And people here say that they were disappointed but not surprised by the Prime Minister's comments. People here say that if he's been stubborn their point of view, then they will be stubborn as well. One man said we would stay here till the ends; if they want to get us, they would have to use an awful lot of tear gas.
很多抗议者坐在公园的边缘,还有人一起喊口号,还跳起了探戈,还有人购买西瓜块、吃野餐。大多数人都说将继续抗议,来这里是想阻止政府重新开发这个地方。人们说,虽然对总理的言论感到失望,但并不吃惊。人们说,如果总理固执己见,他们也要坚持自己的要求。一个人说,我们应该一直等到最后,如果他们想赶走我们,就必须使用很多催泪弹。

Austria says it will withdraw its UN peacekeepers from the Golan Heights after fighting between Syrian government forces and rebels. Officials say the mission is no longer tenable. Austria provides nearly 400 soldiers about a third of the UN peacekeeping mission. A UN spokesman, Kieran Dwyer insisted their work would go on. The mission in the Golan was set up 40 years ago to monitor the ceasefire line between Israel and Syria. This is no less important today than it was all those years ago. And with the fighting becoming more and more intense, this is a really serious risk to regional spillover of the conflict inside Syria. So rather than talking about the mission now becoming viable, what we focusing on it is making sure that it remains viable.
奥地利称,将在叙利亚政府和叛军战斗后从戈兰高地撤出其联合国维和人员。官方称该任务已不再合理,奥地利提供了近400名士兵,约占联合国维和使团的近三分之一。联合国发言人Kieran Dwyer表示将把任务继续进行下去,格兰使团是40年前成立的,目的是监督以色列和叙利亚的停火情况。该使团今天已不像以前那样重要,随着战斗越来越激烈,叙利亚国内的冲突很有可能向地区蔓延。因此,目前我们关注的焦点不是使团是否合理,而是确保依然有效。

A senior administration official, unnamed and choosing his words very carefully, didn't directly confirm the existence of the court order. However, he pointed out that it didn't include the contents of conversations or the names of any callers, and was limited only to metadata such as numbers and durations of calls. The Official went on to say that such information has been a critical tool in protecting American from terrorist threats. Civil rights organizations have long warned that this kind of widespread surveillance is going on.
一位不透露姓名的政府高级官员措辞谨慎,没有直接证实该法院命令的存在。然而,他指出数据并不包括任何聊天内容或呼叫者的名字,仅限于诸如号码和呼叫时长这样的元数据。官方表示,这样的信息是保护美国人免受恐怖威胁的关键工具。民权组织一直警告说,这类无处不在的监督还会继续下去。
