新闻短讯

 

   伊拉克对英美两国在巴格达附近的空袭作出了对抗性反应。萨达姆·候赛因总统誓要奋战到底,直到陆海空三军大获全胜。中国和俄罗斯谴责了这次空袭。但美国辩解说,是伊拉克空防军队首先挑衅正在边界外巡逻的联合空军才发起空袭的。边界线是海湾战争后建立起来的。最新的伤亡统计数字表明,空袭中有两人死亡,20人受伤。今天一早,伊拉克公众的情绪乍看起来似乎对此已麻木不仁。伊拉克遭受了英美空军的另一次空袭。伊拉克老百姓对此毫无办法。昨晚共有24架英美飞机参与空袭,它们从纬度33度以南的地方发射导弹,这是伊拉克飞机的禁区。但它们的目标在纬线以上,与巴格达距离只有5英里。遭摧毁的装置是雷达和指挥中心,美国国防部声称离居民区还很远。

  有消息说欧洲财政部长今天将在布鲁塞尔会面,并对爱尔兰政府作出谴责。当12月爱尔兰共和国的预算中提到减税和增加政府开支时,各国部长已对此感到非常吃惊。其他欧洲国家则担心此举会引起通货膨胀,并影响单一货币欧元的稳定性。

   欧盟15国的财政部长在布鲁塞尔举行每月一次的常规会议,他们将要巧妙地完成一项任务,对爱尔兰共和国政府--也是经济最成功的政府提出批评。在过去5年里,爱尔兰的经济以平均每年8%的速度增长,失业率达到20年来的最低水平,都柏林的物价甚至比伦敦的还要高。

  

   香港迪斯尼乐园工程执行人本周会见商界要人和政府官员,逐项检查建造计划进展情况。迪斯尼的第二个亚洲乐园将在2005年开放。香港政府将提供30亿美元的土地和财政拨款。沃尔特·迪斯尼乐园和度假地的董事长说一切顺利,都在按部就班地进行。

  

   美国东南部的居民现在都在进行打扫清理,因为一场风力强劲的暴风雨刚刚席卷这个地区。五个州内,至少有两人死亡,成千上万的人仍然忍受着暴风骤雨肆虐后留下的后患--停电。政府官员称,有些地区还需要数日才能恢复电力。在德克萨斯州,一辆学校巴士被卷入一条暴雨聚成的洪流中,一个军事医疗疏散小组用一架直升飞机从车顶上救出了三名儿童和一名司机。

  

   最后来看体育新闻,欧洲冠军联赛皇家马德里和利兹联队进入四分之一决赛。在今晚最后的足球新闻中,我们先看看在巴西举行的一场半决赛,由罚点球来决定胜负让人着实捏了一把汗。

   里约热内卢-圣保罗锦标赛半决赛中,圣保罗队主场作战首先攻入一球,以1比零获胜。接下来弗鲁米嫩塞队占尽主场优势,一开场马可·布里托就以一记劲射得分。7分钟后布里托梅开二度,从罚球区外又进一球。尽管弗朗卡为圣保罗队扳回一分,当晚还是以2-1落败,双方总分以2-2踢平。结果共罚了18个点球后,伊兰为圣保罗队攻入决定性的一球,这样圣保罗队进入决赛将与博塔福古队展开对抗。
