The US will not go it alone in Libya, but President Obama says it will join the international community in enforcing a UN resolution aimed at stopping the Libyan regime's attacks on demonstrators.

"It authorizes1 the use of force with an explicit2 commitment to pursue all necessary measures to stop the killing3, to include the enforcement of a no-fly zone over Libya. It also strengthens our sanctions and the enforcement of an arms embargo4 against the Gaddafi regime."

Mr. Obama said the terms are not open to negotiation5, and the resolution will be enforced with military action.

Four New York Times journalists who disappeared while covering the conflict in Libya have been found. The Times said on its website the four were captured by forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi and will be released today.

The first radiation levels from the vicinity of the heavily damaged Japanese power plant show there may not be significant health risks. NPR's Richard Knox says while this is reassuring6, things could change.

Monitoring of radioactivity from 12 to 37 miles away from the disabled power plant largely reveals very low levels, not much higher perhaps than normal background radiation from rock outcroppings, cosmic rays and other natural sources. There is one spot about 20 miles northwest of the plant, where radiation levels are somewhat elevated. But radiation scientist Evan Douple, who studies the health of atom bomb survivors7, says it's not enough to pose an immediate8 or long-term health risk.

"These levels so far, I don't think that a study would be able to measure and be able to determine that there would be health effects."

Experts say health risks could go up if plant emissions9 increase. Nearly 200,000 residents have been evacuated10 within a 12-mile radius11 of the plant. Richard Knox, NPR News.

The political and legal juggling12 over Wisconsin's new collective bargaining law continues. Wisconsin Public Radio's Shawn Johnson reports a state judge has temporarily blocked implementation13 of the law.

The order by Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi means that at least temporarily, Wisconsin's recently signed collective bargaining law can't be published. And as long as it's on hold, unions retain their collective bargaining rights. A complaint before the judge alleged14 lawmakers broke the open meetings law when they called the special committee to vote on this bill and then passed it less than two hours later. Judge Sumi said it was likely the complaint had merit, and that if the court didn't act, there would be irreparable harm.

"This was something that would and did catch the public unaware15."

Attorneys representing the state may appeal the case. For NPR News, I'm Shawn Johnson in Madison.

The US and Chile have quietly signed a nuclear energy accord even as Japan continues to grapple with its earthquake-triggered nuclear disaster. The signing was supposed to be a high-profile moment in President Obama's meeting with the Chilean president in Chile on Monday, but it was signed by the US ambassador and Chile's foreign minister.

US diplomatic posts shut down in Pakistan today amid protests over the release of the CIA contractor17 who was accused of murdering two Pakistanis. In Islamabad, NPR's Julie McCarthy says the government declared a high alert during protests that also denounced US drone missile attacks.

One of the biggest demonstrations18 was in Islamabad. Former cricketer turned politician Imran Khan condemned19 the government for the release of Raymond Davis. The deaths of three Pakistanis in the Davis affair have inflamed20 anti-American passions that coincide with public outrage21 over civilian22 casualties caused by US drone attacks. Pakistan summoned the US ambassador in protest over a drone strike yesterday. It killed dozens of people, reportedly many civilians23. Imran Khan told demonstrators: "We should decide that whenever any Pakistani is killed in a drone strike, the entire nation will take to the street." Similar demonstrations were held in Lahore and Karachi. Julie McCarthy, NPR News, Islamabad.
