The world this week
India partially restored internet access in the Kashmir valley, where it has been blocked since August. But the authorities are only allowing Kashmiris to visit 301 “whitelisted” websites. Social-media services remain banned and mobile-data speeds have deliberately been reduced. The government says the measures are needed to impede terrorism.
印度部分恢复了8月以来一直被封锁的克什米尔地区的互联网接入 。但是当局只允许克什米尔人访问301个“白名单”网站 。社交媒体服务仍然被禁止，移动数据传输速度也被故意降低 。政府表示，需要采取这些措施来阻止恐怖主义 。
Authorities in Pakistan arrested Manzoor Pashteen, the head of the Pushtun Protection Movement, which has campaigned for justice for victims of military abuses. He has been charged with sedition, among other crimes. Several supporters protesting against his detention were also arrested.
巴基斯坦当局逮捕了普什图保护运动的领导人曼佐尔·帕什廷，该组织一直为军事虐待的受害者伸张正义 。他被指控犯有煽动叛乱等罪行 。数名抗议拘留他的支持者也被逮捕 。
Democrats pushed their case for witnesses to give evidence in the impeachment trial of Donald Trump. They hoped to call John Bolton, the president’s former national security adviser, who has claimed in a forthcoming book that Mr Trump explicitly withheld military aid from Ukraine to press its government to investigate Joe Biden and his son. This claim is a central plank of the case against Mr Trump, which he denies.
在特朗普的弹劾审判中，民主党人要求目击者提供证据 。他们希望给总统的前国家安全顾问约翰·博尔顿(John Bolton)打电话 。博尔顿在即将出版的书中声称，特朗普明确拒绝向乌克兰提供军事援助，以迫使乌克兰政府调查乔·拜登(Joe Biden)及其儿子 。这一主张是针对特朗普的指控案件的核心，但特朗普予以否认 。
Possibly to take his mind off the impeachment trial, and shore up his support among ardent pro-lifers, Mr Trump gave a speech at the annual March for Life anti-abortion rally in Washington, the first president to do so.

In a 5-4 vote, the Supreme Court let stand a new immigration rule that could stop legal migrants from becoming permanent residents if they use public-welfare programmes, such as food stamps.

Donald Trump’s peace plan for Israel and the Palestinians gave Israel most of what it wanted, such as a green light to annex occupied lands in the West Bank straight away. The Palestinians got conditional promises of something like a state and billions of dollars in investment at some point in the future. They instantly rejected the deal.
特朗普(Donald Trump)提出的解决巴以问题的“和平计划”让以色列实现大部分所愿，如允许以色列直接吞并西岸被占领的土地 。巴勒斯坦人得到了一些有条件的承诺，比如建立一个国家，并在未来某个时候获得数十亿美元的投资 。巴勒斯坦当即拒绝了这笔交易 。
The American embassy in Baghdad was struck by three rockets, wounding three people. America has blamed Iran and its proxies for an increase in attacks on American forces and facilities in Iraq.

Heavy fighting broke out in Libya between forces loyal to the UN-backed government, which is supported by Turkey, and soldiers under the command of Khalifa Haftar, who is supported by Russia, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates. Despite an arms embargo, weapons are pouring in.
在利比亚，效忠于由土耳其支持的联合国承认的政府的部队与由俄罗斯、埃及和阿拉伯联合酋长国支持的Khalifa Haftar指挥下的士兵之间爆发了激烈的战斗 。尽管实行了武器禁运，武器还是源源不断地涌入 。
The biggest infestation of locusts for at least 25 years wrought havoc on east Africa. Heavy rains last year created ideal conditions for the pests. An adult locust can eat its own weight each day.

Holocaust survivors and international leaders gathered at the former Auschwitz death camp in Poland to mark the 75th anniversary of its liberation by Allied troops, amid calls to fight resurgent anti-Semitism. The presidents of Israel and Poland led the commemoration. About 1.1m people, mostly Jews, were murdered at Auschwitz-Birkenau, the Nazis’ biggest death camp.
