Hot Issue Reports

U.S. President Barack Obama signs new sanctions against Iran

U.S. President Barack Obama has signed into law far-reaching new sanctions on Iran that aim to squeeze the Islamic Republic's fuel imports and deepen its international isolation.

The Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability and Divestment Act, will make it harder for the Iranian government to continue its nuclear program.

"With these sanctions—along with others—we are striking at the heart of the Iranian government's ability to fund and develop its nuclear programs. We are showing the Iranian government that its actions have consequences. And if it persists, the pressure will continue to mount, and its isolation will continue to deepen. There should be no doubt: the United States and the international community are determined5 to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons."

The new U.S. sanctions go much further than the measures agreed to by the U.N. Security Council in June. They penalize6 companies supplying Iran with gasoline and international banking7 institutions involved with Iran's increasingly powerful Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps9 or its nuclear program.

The United States and its European allies suspect Iran is trying to build an atomic bomb, despite Tehran's insistence10 that its nuclear program is for the peaceful generation of electricity.


Pakistanis Protest Against Bombing in Lahore

Thousands of Pakistanis have marched in Lahore to voice their anger at a deadly bomb attack on one of the country's most important Sufi shrines.

The march, organised by the Ahle Sunnat Islamic Group, took place outside the now shattered Data Darbar Shrine2, which was hit by two suicide bombers11 late on Thursday.

Protesters held up placards and demanded justice for the victims of Thursday's violence.

Mohammad Noor Elahi is leader of the Ahle Sunnat Islamic Group.

"The Sufi saint Data is the chief of Sufis. His message is the message of peace. In Data Darbar Shrine the act of terrorism is a conspiracy12 against human beings. We are requesting that the government eradicate13 these terrorists.

Meanwhile, Pakistan's Interior Minister, Rehman Malik, severely14 condemned16 the attack.

"I condemn15 this, this attack on Data Darbar Shrine in which our faith resides. I feel that these institutions of our ancestors should be protected. Who are these infidels? Don't they understand that they are worse than infidels, worse than animals, that they could commit such brutal17 attacks."

The suicide attack on Data Darbar Shrine has killed at least 42 people and left 180 wounded.

So far, there was no claim of responsibility.


Bail Hearings for Suspect Spies for Russia Finished and Postponed18 in US

A judge has granted bail to one person accused of spying for Russia and denied bail to two others after a prosecutor19 warned that the defendants20 had plenty of helpers in the US to help them flee.

The ruling came from Magistrate21 Judge Ronald Ellis after 90 minutes of arguments at a bail hearing in New York on Friday.

The magistrate said Vicky Pelaez, a Spanish-language journalist who lives in Yonkers, New York, could be freed on bail of 250-thousand US dollars plus house arrest.

Carlos Moreno is the lawyer for Vicky Pelaez.

"Obviously we're excited that bail has been set. It's very early in the case. We still don't know all the facts, but we are confident that Vicky Pelaez is innocent of these charges, and when the time comes, we intend to prove just that."
Ellis denied bail to Richard and Cynthia Murphy of Montclair, New Jersey22.

A bail hearing was postponed for Juan Lazaro, Pelaez' husband.

Prosecutors23 said that Lazaro told investigators24 that Juan Lazaro is not his true name and that he passed letters to Russian intelligence.

A magistrate judge in Virginia postponed a hearing for three other people accused of being foreign agents, Michael Zottoli, Patricia Mills and Mikhail Semenko. It has been rescheduled for tomorrow.

A judge in a federal court in Boston gave another suspect, Donald Heathfield and his wife, Tracey Lee Ann Foley, of Cambridge, until July 16, 2010, to prepare for a bail hearing.


How will the Spy Case Affect US-Russia Relations?

The arrests in America of the alleged25 Russian spies comes at a time of improving relations between the two countries. So, what lies behind the spying allegation? Will the latest incident change things? for more, "People in the Know" host Nigel Ballard talked with Alex Nice from the Russia and Eurasia Programme, at The Royal Institute of International Affairs, in London.

Australia agrees deal to reduce new mining tax

The Australian government has reached a deal with mining companies over controversial tax plans.

Former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd had announced plans for a 40% tax on miners' profits.

But a compromise agreement negotiated by his successor, Julia Gillard, has now reduced the rate to 30% for coal and iron ore miners.

Gillard announces the new profit-based resources rent tax in Canberra.

"This will deliver better returns for the resources that Australian own and it can only be dug up once. It will end uncertainty26 and division. It will invest a portion of the value of our resources into better superannuation for our people"

The government says petroleum27 and gas operations will still pay a pre-existing 40% tax rate, but that will now cover onshore oil and gas projects as well as the offshore28 operations previously29 subject to it.

The plans are still expected to raise billions of dollars for the government.


China Launches Real-Name Registration30 for Online Shops

Online shop owners in China are now required to submit their personal information, including real names and addresses, to e-commerce regulators before they can operate online businesses.

The country's first regulation for online goods and services transactions, issued by the State Administration for Industry and Commerce, China's market regulator has taken effect.


ECFA Boost Economic Development of the Mainland and Taiwan

The Economic Cooperation Framework Agreement, or ECFA between the Chinese Mainland and Taiwan is bringing mutual31 benefit to both sides.

Wen Rende, a fruit trader from Taiwan, says more Taiwan fruit is exported to the mainland since the deal was signed.

"Preciously, only 15 kinds of Taiwan fruit have been granted zero-tariff32 treatment on the mainland. After the ECFA was signed, people from the mainland can buy more kinds of Taiwan fruit. Agriculture products from Taiwan only account for 4.5 percent of the mainland market. I believe it has room to grow."

The free-trade deal provides Taiwan firms tariff advantages in some 530 categories of goods bound for the mainland, of which 18 items are agricultural and fish products. These include 5 kinds of Taiwan fruit such as pitaya and orange. The mainland also promises to remove tariffs33 on these items within 2 years.

The pact34 will also give Taiwan firms access to 11 service sectors35 on the mainland including banking, accounting36, insurance and hospitals. Taiwan will open 9 service sectors to the mainland.


Enthusiastic Chinese World Cup Fans Ready for Quarter Finals

Some abroad may assume that because China's football team didn't qualify for the 2010 World Cup, this would dampen the enthusiasm that Chinese fans have for the internationally renowned37 sport. In the big cities at least, it appears that nothing could be further from the truth.

This year's World Cup, espoused38 with innovative39 technology and a completely unpredictable group stage round, has led to unprecedented40 exposure in China.


Media Digest

From the Los Angeles Times: Many Starbucks consumers are worried that there might not be much room for them in the chain's shops in the future.

Starbucks had just instituted a free, unlimited41 Wi-Fi Internet policy for patrons at its nearly 6,800 company-operated stores in the U.S., plus 750 locations in Canada.

Six months ago, McDonald's launched free Wi-Fi at about 11,500 U.S. locations. Starbucks and McDonalds have been butting42 heads ever since McDonald's debuted43 its McCafe line of coffee drinks.

Starbucks hopes it will reap financial rewards from coffee drinkers who stay longer and buy more drinks to fuel marathon Internet sessions.


Out of the New York Times: Tibetans live at altitudes of 13,000 feet, breathing air that has 40 percent less oxygen than is available at sea level, yet suffer very little mountain sickness. The reason, according to a team of biologists in China, is human evolution, in what may be the most recent and fastest instance detected so far.

Comparing the genomes of Tibetans and Han Chinese, biologists found that at least 30 genes44 had undergone evolutionary8 change in the Tibetans as they adapted to life on the high plateau. The Beijing Genomics Institute said Tibetans and Han Chinese split apart as recently as 3,000 years ago.

Until now, the most recent such change was the spread of lactose tolerance — the ability to digest milk in adulthood — among northern Europeans about 7,500 years ago
