The UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has strongly condemned an attack on a UN building in Afghanistan. At least 14 people died, among them seven UN staff, when demonstrators stormed and torched the facility in the city of Mazar-i-Sharif. Police said some people were shot, others stabbed, and two were beheaded. The UN Under Secretary General for Peacekeeping Alain Le Roy gave more details of what happened.
联合国秘书长潘基文强烈谴责袭击联合国一座在阿富汗建筑的行为。示威者闯入并纵火焚烧了Mazar-i-Sharif的联合国设施,造成至少14人死亡,其中包括7名联合国工作人员。警方称一些人被枪杀,另外一些被刺死,还有两人被斩首。联合国负责维和事务的副秘书长Alain Le Roy讲述了事件的细节。

"There was an important demonstration, and part of the demonstrator[s] rushed into our compound with weapons. And they stormed the compound, they put fire on it, and they killed several of our staff. They killed seven international staff, three civilian[s] and four international security guards. I understand that also from the demonstrator[s], some of the attackers, some of them were killed too."
“当时发生了大型的示威活动,部分示威者手持武器冲进我们的大楼。他们突袭了我们的大楼并纵火焚烧,他们还杀害了我们的几名工作人员。他们杀害了7个国际工作人员,3个平民,4个国际安全卫士。我从一些示威者那里知道,部分示威者也被杀害。”

The violent protest in Afghanistan was organised in response to the burning in the United States last month of a copy of the Koran in the presence of the American pastor Terry Jones. Pastor Jones rejected accusations that he should be held responsible for this latest violence.
阿富汗发生的暴力抗议是针对美国牧师Terry Jones上个月焚烧可兰经的行为做出的回应。琼斯牧师否认他应该为这次最新的暴力事件负责的说法。

"That is an excuse. If they did not use the Koran burning as an excuse, they would have a different excuse. When they flew the planes into the buildings on 9/11, they also probably had an excuse. They use our government as an excuse because we're in Afghanistan, because we're in the Middle East. They use any excuse that they desire to use."
“这是一个借口。如果他们不把焚烧可兰经作为借口,他们也会有另外一个不同的借口。当他们在9.11那天驾驶飞机撞上美国的大厦时,他们可能也有一个借口。他们将我们的政府作为借口,因为我们出兵阿富汗,因为我们出兵中东。他们可以随心所欲地使用任何借口。”

Forces loyal to the internationally recognised President of Ivory Coast, Alassane Ouattara, have been attacking areas of the main city Abidjan, still controlled by Laurent Gbagbo, who is refusing to give up power. There were explosions and gunfire throughout Friday. A key supporter of Mr Gbagbo, the leader of the Young Patriots militia Charles Ble Goude, told the BBC there was room for dialogue, but warned he could still, if pushed, send his fighters onto the streets.
忠于国际社会公认的科特迪瓦总统瓦塔拉的部队袭击了仍在巴博控制下的主要城市阿比让地区。巴博现在依然拒绝放弃权力。那里整个周五都弥漫着爆炸声和枪声。巴博的一名关键支持者, Young Patriots组织的领导人Charles Ble Goude告诉BBC,目前仍有对话的空间,但是他警告称,如果被逼无奈,他仍然会让他的战士们走上街头。

The International Committee of the Red Cross says it believes at least 800 people were killed in the city of Duekoue in Ivory Coast this week. It said they died in inter-communal violence in one district of the city. Greg Morsbach reports.
国际红十字委员会称,他们相信这星期科特迪瓦的迪埃奎城至少有800人遇难。据说,他们在该市某地社区间暴力中被杀害。Greg Morsbach报道。

The Red Cross said the killings had apparently occurred in just one district of the Ivorian city of Duekoue on Tuesday this week. It said there were a huge number of corpses and the killings were particularly shocking because of their scale and brutality. The Red Cross said the circumstances were being investigated by its Ivorian staff in Duekoue, and it was still waiting for detailed information. But it appealed to the warring parties to remember that they had an obligation under international law to protect civilians.

A government spokesman here has rejected the rebels' ceasefire proposals as mad.

But a ceasefire on its terms would suit the Gaddafi regime rather well now that it's doing so much better in the war. A ceasefire would also suit the rebels if only because they are losing.
