A video has been released on the Internet purporting to show the beheading of the US journalist Steven Sotloff by Islamic State militants. The video shows a masked figure with a knife standing over Mr Sotloff, who was abducted in Syria last year. The jihadist also issued a threat against a British hostage and warned governments to end their alliance against IS. Barbara Plett Usher reports from Washington.

一个关于美国记者Steven Sotloff被伊斯兰激进组织成员斩首的视频被发布到网络。视频中一个蒙面人手拿砍刀站在Sotloff后面,Sotloff于去年在叙利亚被绑架。圣战成员同时也对一名英国人质发出威胁,警告英国政府停止与IS组织对抗。Barbara Plett Usher从华盛顿发回报道。

US officials said if the video was genuine they would be sickened and appalled by this brutal act taking another innocent American life. Islamic State had warned it would kill a second US journalist if Washington refused to stop air strikes against its fighters in Iraq. The video apparently highlights the failure of intense US efforts to free a number of American hostages still held by the extremists. None of the countries to which Washington has appealed for help seemed to have any influence on the group. It would also increase pressure on President Obama to go after the militants at their base in Syria, which he has been reluctant to do.

美国官员表示如果视频内容属实的话他们将对此野蛮夺取无辜美国人性命的行为感到恶心和震惊。伊斯兰组织警告华盛顿称其如果拒绝停止对伊拉克武装成员的空袭的话将会再次杀害另外一名美国记者。视频的发布显然强调了美国营救被极端恐怖分子控制的美国人质行动的失败,华盛顿没有寻求任何国家的帮助,似乎也没有什么作用。这同时也增加了奥巴马总统在叙利亚美军军事基地的压力,他一直也不愿意这样做。

The United States Department of Defence has said it had targeted the leader of the Somali Islamist militant group al-Shabab in an air strike. A spokesman, Rear Admiral John Kirby, said it was unclear whether Ahmed Abdi Godane was killed in the attack though he said the targets had been hit.

美国国防部表示其已经在一次空袭中瞄准索马里伊斯兰武装组织青年党领袖。海军少将发言人John Kirby表示目前尚不清楚Ahmed Abdi Gogane是否已经死亡,尽管其称目标已经被击中。

"Yesterday at approximately 11:20 Eastern time, working from actionable intelligence, US special operations forces using manned and unmanned aircraft destroyed an encampment and a vehicle, using several Hellfire missiles and laser-guided munitions. This operation was a direct strike against the al-Shabab network. We are still accessing the results of the operation, and we will provide additional information when and if appropriate."

昨天大约在东部时间11点20左右,从情报工作那里得知美国特种部队载人飞机和无人飞机击毁了一个营地和车辆,采用了几枚地狱之火导弹和激光制导弹。此次行动目的为直接打击al-Shabab的网络。我们目前正在等待行动结果,一有消息马上提供给大家,如果合适的话。

Members of al-Shabab have confirmed Godane was in one of the cars that were struck on Monday night.

青年党已经证实Godane正在周一晚上击中的其中一辆汽车里。

The head of the international medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres has told the United Nations the battle against the Ebola outbreak in West Africa is being lost. Joanne Liu said world leaders were failing to address the worst Ebola epidemic in history and said so few medical staff were available that some treatment centres were now places where patients went to die. The UN's coordinator for the response to the crisis David Nabarro said the world needed to do more.

国际医疗慈善机构负责人Medecins Sans Frontieres告诉联合国称西非对抗埃博拉病毒战争力量正在减弱。Joanne Liu表示世界各国领导人在历史上未能成功领导历史上最糟糕的埃博拉疫情,还说有一些救治中心医疗人员力量相当薄弱,病人只有慢慢死去。联合国协调员戴维纳巴罗回应此危机时称我们有更多的工作要做。

"All we can do is to use every single capacity that we can find to get the necessary scale-up and search of the right responses so that this outbreak is brought back under control."

我们能做的就是利用我们每一个人的力量扩大救助范围,寻找控制埃博拉病毒传播的方法。
