Senior United States intelligence officials have for the first time said that Osama Bin Laden was in active control of al-Qaeda right up to his death in the American raid on his compound in Pakistan. The officials said the raid yielded the biggest collection of intelligence ever obtained from a single terrorism suspect. Videos seized during the raid which the Americans have just released show him delivering a video message to the American people and watching himself on television. Our security correspondent Frank Gardner reports.
美国高级情报官员首次表态,本•拉登一直积极主动的控制着基地组织,直到美国袭击他在巴基斯坦的住宅时将其击毙。这些官员表示,这次袭击获得的情报资料是有史以来从单个恐怖主义嫌疑人那里获得的最多的。美国刚刚发布的在袭击期间拍摄的视频资料表明,本•拉登向美国人民传达了视频信息,并且自己在电视上观看。我们的安全通讯员Frank Gardner报道。

The really interesting thing, I think, coming out of all of this is that US intelligence appears to be doing a 180-degree about-turn. Having said for years that "Well, he's on the run, he's not...he's too busy to do any command and controlling," they are now saying that his compound in Abbottabad was the command and control centre, a command and control centre for al-Qaeda, and that he was in operational command of the organisation, which is quite different to what we've been told till now.
我认为其中最有趣的事情是,美国情报官员对于这一切的态度似乎出现了180度的大转弯。他们几年来一直宣称“本•拉登在逃亡,他没有时间来进行任何指挥或控制工作。”而现在,他们则表示,阿伯塔巴德的这座住宅就是指挥和控制中心,基地组织的指挥和控制中心,并且他一直在操纵和指挥该组织,这与此前我们被告知的完全不同。

Afghanistan's second city Kandahar has been paralysed by intense fighting sparked by multiple attacks from suspected Taliban militants on government buildings. At least six of the attacks were carried out by suicide bombers. Afterwards, militants exchanged fire with security forces with both sides using heavy machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades. From Kabul, here's Paul Wood.
阿富汗第二大城市坎大哈的政府建筑遭到疑似塔利班激进分子的多次袭击从而导致陷入瘫痪。至少实施了六起自杀式炸弹袭击。随后,激进分子与安全力量交火,双方均使用了重机枪和火箭推进榴弹。Paul Wood从喀布尔发回报道。

President Karzai said in a statement that killing civilians in Kandahar was the Taliban's response to the death of Osama Bin Laden. They are trying to hide their defeat by taking revenge on the innocent people of Afghanistan, he said. A spokesman for the Taliban denied that, saying that on the contrary, the Kandahar attack had been planned for some time. A week ago, the Taliban did announce the beginning of their spring offensive. They've also put out a statement more recently, saying that what they called the pure blood of Osama Bin Laden would nurture the sapling of jihad.
卡尔扎伊总统在一份声明中表示,坎大哈平民被杀事件是塔利班分子对本•拉登之死做出的回应。他说,他们试图通过对阿富汗无辜的平民进行报复来掩饰自己被打败的事实。一名塔利班发言人否认了这种观点,称这恰恰相反,坎大哈的袭击已经密谋已久。一周前,塔利班分子确实宣布了春季大进攻的开始。他们最近还发表了一份声明,称本•拉登纯洁的鲜血将会滋养圣战的幼苗。

Reports from Syria say tanks have moved into the port city of Baniyas, where there have been persistent demonstrations against the government of President Bashar al-Assad in recent weeks. Some local people are said to have tried to form human chains to stop the tanks. Jim Muir reports.
来自叙利亚的报道称,坦克已经进入港口城市巴尼亚斯,当地抗议阿萨德总统政府的示威活动已经持续了几周。据称一些当地人称,他们试图组成人墙,阻止坦克进入。Jim Muir报道。

The official version of events at Baniyas announced on Syrian state TV is that army and security forces have moved into the coastal town to chase what they called "armed terrorist elements". It said a number of wanted men have been arrested and quantities of arms and ammunition found. Activists said the troops and tanks moved in under cover of darkness and began house-to-house searches with lists of people they were after. Women staged a protest on the road outside the town, demanding the release of the detained men.
叙利亚国家电视台对巴尼亚斯事件的官方报道是,军队和安全力量进入这个海岸城市,追捕他们所说的“武装恐怖分子”。电台报道称,他们逮捕了几名通缉犯,并缴获了大量武器弹药。活动积极分子称,军队和坦克在夜幕的掩护下进入这座城市,开始逐家搜索他们追捕的几人。妇女们在城外的道路上举行了抗议活动,要求释放被拘留者。

Rebel leaders in Libya say Italy has agreed to supply weapons to help them defeat Colonel Gaddafi's forces. The Italian government has denied the deal. A foreign minister spokesman said Italy would only provide the rebels with self-defence equipment.
利比亚反叛力量领导人称,意大利已经同意为他们提供武器,帮助他们打败卡扎菲上校的部队。意大利政府否认这一说法。外交部长一名发言人表示,意大利只会为叛军提供自卫设备。

Tunisian police have used tear gas and batons to disperse hundreds of demonstrators in the capital Tunis. The demonstrators were calling for the resignation of the government and protesting against what they saw as the heavy-handed response of the police to other demonstrations in recent days. An overnight curfew has been declared in and around the capital. Meanwhile, a Tunisian court has sentenced Imed Trabelsi, a nephew of the wife of ousted President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, to two years in jail for drug use.
突尼斯警方使用催泪弹和警棍来驱散突尼斯首都的数百名示威者。示威者要求政府解散,并抗议最近几天警方对其他示威活动的严厉镇压。首都与周边地区都宣布了夜间宵禁。与此同时,突尼斯法庭判决被推翻的总统本•阿里的妻子的侄子Imed Trabelsi两年的监禁,原因是吸毒。

The BBC has learnt that the European Commission is willing to cut the interest rate on the emergency loans made to the Irish Republic last year. If agreed by fellow EU member states, the reduction could save $570m a year. Here's our business correspondent Joe Lynam.
BBC获悉,欧洲委员会愿意削减去年为爱尔兰共和国提供的紧急贷款的利率。如果欧盟其他成员国通过,这次削减利率每年将会为爱尔兰节约5.7亿美元。我们的商业通讯员Joe Lynam报道。

Last November, Ireland agreed emergency funding from EU buddies and the IMF worth $100bn at an average rate of 5.8%. That was widely felt to be excessive by Irish voters, who elected a new government in February with a strong mandate to re-negotiate the terms. What Ireland must give up in return, though, is unclear. The new coalition in Dublin has consistently said that its 12.5% corporation tax rate would not be raised, despite French and German demands to do so.
去年11月,爱尔兰同意向欧盟伙伴和国际货币基金组织寻求1000亿美元的紧急贷款,平均利率为5.8%。爱尔兰选民普遍认为利率过高,他们在2月份选举出了新的政府,强烈要求重新协商贷款条件。然而,爱尔兰必须为此放弃的条件还不清楚。尽管法国和德国提出要求,都柏林新的联盟政府依然坚持12.5%的法人税不会提高。

The governing party in Singapore has won all but six seats in Saturday's elections for parliament, but the opposition has described its advances as a political landmark. The People's Action Party, which have been in power for more than 40 years, won 81 out of 87 seats. Among those who lost their seats is Singapore's Foreign Minister George Yeo.
新加坡执政党在周六的议会选举中获得了压倒性的胜利,只失去了六个席位,但是反对派形容此次进展为新加坡政治的里程碑。执政的人民行动党已经当权超过40年的时间,他们赢得了所有87个席位中的81个。在失去议席的人之中包括新加坡外交部长杨荣文。

Tributes have been paid to one of the world's great golfers, Severiano Ballesteros, who's died of cancer at his home in Spain. Flags flew at half-mast and a minute's silence was observed at the start of Saturday's round of the Spanish Open, which is held this year in Barcelona.
世界上伟大是的高尔夫球手之一塞弗•巴耶斯德罗斯(Seve Ballesteros)因癌症在西班牙家中去世。于周六在巴塞罗那举行的西班牙公开赛(Spanish Open)开幕之时,降半旗并默哀一分钟向他表达敬意。
