VOA双语新闻 Iraq War Crime Trials Could Begin Next Week

时间:2010-09-19 06:11来源:互联网 提供网友:peibin8412   字体: [ ]

Iraq's interim1 government says war crime trials of members of the former regime of Saddam Hussein could begin as early as next week. In the meantime, at least two people were killed and as many as 13 wounded early Tuesday when, for the second time in as many days, a suicide car bomber2 attacked a security checkpoint in Baghdad. And, a group of celebrities3, accompanied by the head of the Pentagon, arrived in Baghdad to help boost morale4 among U.S. troops in Iraq.

伊拉克临时政府说,对前萨达姆政权成员的战争罪行的审判最早在下个星期开始。与此同时,星期二早些时候,在巴格达北部一个安全检查站发生的一次汽车炸弹袭击事件中,有至少两人丧生,13人受伤。 这是两天来安全检查站第二次遭到自杀式汽车炸弹袭击。另外,美国参谋长联席会议主席迈尔斯在一批知名人士的陪同下抵达巴格达,以期提高驻伊拉克美军的士气。

The interim prime minister of Iraq, Iyad Allawi, told a gathering5 of the interim national assembly Tuesday that trials of suspected war criminals could begin in Iraq as early as next week. If so, senior government officials in Iraq say those trials would likely begin with war council members of the former regime of Saddam Hussein. Mr. Allawi did not specify6 who would be going on trial and it has not been disclosed when Saddam Hussein himself might face trial.


The prime minister also said Iraqi security forces had killed a senior aide to wanted militant7 Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, and took into custody8 two other wanted militants9. Mr. al-Zarqawi is the most wanted man in Iraq. He is believed to be behind numerous car bombings, kidnappings and killings10 of hostages.


Mr. Allawi made his comments just hours following a second car bombing in as many days outside the heavily protected Green Zone in central Baghdad.


Twenty-four hours after a suicide bomber struck Monday at an entrance to the Green Zone, another suicide bomber blew himself up near the same location. An Iraqi National Guard recruiting station is also located in the area.


The area is the most heavily protected and fortified11 section of Baghdad, where several embassies and the offices of the interim government are located. It has become a favorite target of insurgents12 over the past several months, attacking it with car bombs, mortars13 and rockets.


Attacks in Baghdad have become more deadly ever since the U.S.-led invasion last month of the city of Falljuah, west of Baghdad. That assault was intended to root out thousands of insurgents. Since then, interim government officials have said the insurgents have spread throughout Iraq.


Military and interim government officials say they expect the insurgency14 to become more violent as the country prepares for national elections to be held next month.


Meanwhile, Pentagon Joint15 Chiefs of Staff chairman, General Richard Myers, arrived in Baghdad for a visit intended to boost morale among the troops. He was accompanied by actor Robin16 Williams, former American National Football League quarterback John Elway and sportscaster Leeann Tweeden.


General Myers said U.S. troop levels in Iraq will rise to 150,000 by the scheduled January 30 elections. He said events on the ground in Iraq would determine whether the troop level would be scaled back afterwards.

迈尔斯将军说,在1月30日举行大选前, 美军在伊拉克驻扎的人数将增加到15万人。他说,伊拉克局势的发展将决定此后美国是否会减少在伊拉克驻军的人数。

Iraqi voters will go to the polls to elect a 275-seat interim national assembly, that will be responsible for writing a new constitution. They will decide late next summer whether to approve that constitution. Elections for a permanent national assembly are expected by the end of next year.
