The US military says another airport will open in Haiti by tomorrow. This will allow rescue teams to bring more help into the earthquake-stricken nation. Supplies have been backed up at the single airport open in Port-au-Prince, the capital. NPR's Jackie Northam is there where she says relief aid is trickling1 in.

 

The US took over the airport several days ago, and there were some complaints that all that we are trying to do, the US was putting their military people, which makes sense to help keep the distribution centers safe and that type of thing, but there have been complaints that not enough aid flights were getting in because the US was putting its military flights in it. So now the US who are taking , have taken over the airport saying fine, the priority now is to get the aid in whether be fuel or water or medicine or what have yielded. But at this point, there are many many people who still haven't seen any relief whatsoever2.

Iran has formally turned down an offer to ship much of its enriched uranium out of the country, and have it reprocessed into nuclear fuel rods. Iran had originally agreed to the proposal made last year by the United States. Iran objects now because officials say the process takes too long. Instead, Iran offered a counterproposal suggesting an immediate4 swap5, but the United States objected to that. Iran's decision came in a letter to the International Atomic Energy Agency.

 

Defense6 Secretary Robert Gates is holding what the Pentagon says are productive talks with top officials in New Delhi, among the issues discussed: joint7 counter-terrorism efforts, relations with Pakistan and China's rising military might. From New Delhi, NPR's Mary Louise Kelly reports.

 

Secretary Gates is in Delhi for two days of talks aimed at strengthening the defense partnership8 between India and Washington. A senior defense official who briefed reporters after the first round of talks says the secretary delivered this key message - the US has learned from past mistakes and plans "to be involved in the region for a very long time". The official added that the US, India and its neighbors will need to make a collective effort to defeat the terrorism syndicate that's hogged9 in the region. Gates and top Indian officials also shared concerns about China's expanding military strength, and Secretary Gates is managing to fit in a bit of sightseeing in India with a quick visit to the Taj Mahal.

The American Kraft Foods Company is buying the English chocolate maker11 Cadbury, paying more than 19 billion dollars. Larry Miller12 reports from London.

 

After Kraft boosted its initial offer, the possibility of a hostile takeover faded, and the Cadbury board advised the shareholders13 to accept the Kraft bid. Kraft said the deal creates a global confectionery leader. Since being founded 186 years ago, Cadbury has been the English candy company, but it's also seen as far more than a chocolate maker, and has a history of good employee relations and remains14 a successful company. Kraft says it will respect Cadbury's brands, heritage and people. Yet, there is apprehension15 that in the hands of an American conglomerate16, its character and taste will change, and that UK production will go elsewhere. One immediate result of the Kraft takeover is that the Cadbury production facility earmarked for closure will now remain open. For NPR News, I'm Larry Miller in London.

 

Internet company Google has delayed the launch of its mobile phone in China. Google hasn’t officially said why, but the company and the Chinese government are at odds17 over China's Internet censorship practices and recent episodes of email hacking18 into Google accounts.

 

Reports from Nigeria say there has been more fighting between Christians19 and Muslims in the central part of the country. At least 27 people are dead in the city of Jos and the military has imposed a curfew. Fighting began over the weekend when a Catholic church was burned and rioters attacked passers-by. More than eight years ago, fighting between the Christians and Muslims in the same area left more than 1,000 people dead.
