The Obama administration is suspending about a third of its annual aid to the Pakistani military, worth about $800m. The White House chief of staff Bill Daley said Pakistan was an important ally against terrorism but some of its conduct had given Washington reason to act. Rajesh Mirchandani reports.
奥巴马政府中止了对巴基斯坦军方三分之一的年度援助,价值约8亿美元。白宫办公厅主任威廉•戴利(William Daley)称,在打击恐怖主义方面,巴基斯坦是重要的盟友,但是巴基斯坦的部分行为给了华盛顿采取行动的理由。Rajesh Mirchandani报道。

Relations between the two countries have been increasingly strained since May when US troops went into Pakistan in secret and killed Osama Bin Laden. Pakistani leaders were furious the US did not consult them while US officials wondered out loud who in Pakistan might have known where Bin Laden was hiding. Last week, a senior US official suggested Pakistan was involved in the killing of a journalist. Prior to that, Islamabad expelled US military trainers. Washington may hope holding back aid is persuasive.
从五月份美国军队秘密进入巴基斯坦,击毙本•拉登以来,两国之间的关系日趋紧张。美国官员并未征询他们的意见就大声质疑巴基斯坦某些人可能知道本•拉登的藏身之处,巴基斯坦官员对此感到非常愤怒。上周,美国一名高级官员指出巴基斯坦参与了杀害一名记者的事件。在此之前,伊斯兰堡驱逐了美国军方训练人员。华盛顿可能希望撤销援助有利于起到劝服作用。

The aid agency Oxfam has called on the Kenyan authorities to allow Somali drought victims into a camp inside Kenya but which is empty. Aid workers say the empty camp, known as Ifo Two, is close to another one, Dadaab. Here's Martin Plaut.

Dadaab camp is bursting at the seams, and every day more than 1,000 Somalis stream in. Yet just down the road is another camp, Ifo Two. It's ready and waiting, complete with latrines and water supplies. For the past two years, the United Nations refugee agency says it's tried to get it opened, but the Kenyan authorities have been blocking their attempts. The head of the UNHCR, Antonio Guterres, is due to meet the Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki on Monday to try to remove the obstacles.
达达阿布难民营已经人满为患,每天都有超过1,000名索马里人涌入。然而,沿着这条路下去就是另外一个难民营Ifo Two。这个难民营已经做好了准备,配备了公厕和水。在过去的两年中,联合国难民署称,他们试图开放这个难民营,但是肯尼亚当局一直阻止他们的努力。联合国难民署高级专员安东尼奥•古特雷斯(Antonio Guterres)将于周一会见肯尼亚总统姆瓦伊•齐贝吉(Mwai Kibaki),尝试消除障碍。

The President of Sudan, Omar al-Bashir, has said Sudan could take up arms against the newly independent Republic of South Sudan over the disputed region of Abyei.

France and the United States have protested to Syria about demonstrations outside their embassies on Saturday. The French government summoned the Syrian ambassador to issue what it called a "vigorous protest" about damage to its embassy and a consulate in Syria. The United States accused the Syrian authorities of organising a protest, at which its embassy was pelted with eggs and tomatoes. The demonstrations followed Syrian complaints about visits made by the French and American ambassadors last week to the town of Hama, where the authorities have been trying to crush anti-government protests.
