French and United Nations military forces in Ivory Coast have been using helicopters to attack the presidential compound in the main city of Abidjan. The compound is the base of Laurent Gbagbo who has refused to give up power since elections last year. From the UN headquarters in New York, here is Barbara Plett.
法国与联合国驻科特迪瓦联的部队使用直升飞机袭击了位于主要城市阿比让的总统府。该建筑是从去年选举以来拒绝放弃权力的巴博的基地。Barbara Plett从联合国纽约总部发回报道。

A UN official said attack helicopters fired missiles at heavy armaments in a pro-Gbagbo military camp. The aim was to destroy weapons which forces loyal to the incumbent president are using against civilians and against UN personnel, he said, noting the decision to attack was taken in light of the UN’s mandate to protect civilians. French forces have also launched attacks in support of the UN operation. This marks an escalation for the UN mission in Ivory Coast. It’s been guarding Mr Gbagbo’s rival, Alassane Ouattara, after declaring him the winner of disputed presidential elections in December. But it has come under increasing pressure from the Security Council to take more aggressive action to protect civilians.
一名联合国官员称,攻击机使用导弹轰炸了支持巴博的重武器军营,这样做的目的是药摧毁忠于现任总统巴博的军队用于攻击平民和联合国人员的武器。他指出,该袭击的决定是根据联合国下达的保护平民的命令。法国部队也发动了配合联合国行动的袭击。这表明联合国在科特迪瓦任务的升级。他们一直在保护在12月份的总统选举中宣布获胜瓦塔拉。但是他们受到安理会越来越大的压力,要求采取更加积极的行动来保护平民。

‘He deserves another chance. He’s had a rough four years and it’s gonna take another four years for this country to stand back up on its feet.’
“他理应得到另一个机会。他经历了艰苦的四年,这个国家还需要另外四年的时间重新站立起来。”

‘I think that he got off for a rocky start with a really tough economy and I don’t think anyone could have done any better than he’s done. I think that he is really finding his way as a president.’
“我认为他在经济情况非常糟糕的时候开始了执政生涯。我认为,换成其他人也不会比他做的更好。我想他已经知道如何当好总统了。”

The American Attorney General, Eric Holder, has confirmed that the man accused of masterminding the September 11th attacks in the US 10 years ago, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, will now be tried by a military commission at the Guantanamo Bay. Paul Adams reports from Washington.
美国司法部长埃里克•霍尔德(Eric Holder)已经证实,被指控策划了十年前9.11袭击事件的男子,哈立德•谢赫•穆罕默德(Khalid Sheikh Mohammed)将交由关塔纳摩湾军事委员会审判。Paul Adams从华盛顿发回报道。

When he came into office, President Obama promised to close Guantanamo Bay within a year. Several months later, his Attorney General Eric Holder announced that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed would be tried in a civilian court in New York. But in the teeth of widespread opposition, particularly from Congress, the administration’s plans have been gradually shelved. Announcing that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his four alleged co-conspirators would after all face a military commission at Guantanamo Bay, a frustrated Mr Holder blamed Congress for blocking the administration from bringing any Guantanamo Bay inmates to trial in the Untied States.
当奥巴马开始执政的时候,他承诺将在一年之内关闭关塔纳摩监狱。几个月之后,他的司法部长埃里克•霍尔德(Eric Holder)宣布穆罕默德将在纽约民事法庭接受审判。但是各界人士普遍反对,特别是国会,政府的计划逐渐被搁置。在宣布穆罕默德和他的四名同谋将接受关塔纳摩湾军事委员会的审判时,沮丧的霍尔德谴责国会阻止政府在美国审判关塔纳摩监狱任何囚犯。
