The chief prosecutor in Paris has said that a group of three women who were arrested following the discovery of a car loaded with gas cylinders in the center of the capital were receiving instructions from the Islamic State group. Francois Molins also reviewed that one ofthe women had links to Jihadists who carried out terror attacks in France early this year. Here is our Paris correspondent Lucy Williamson.
Mr. Molins described a new kind of threat against France, formed entirely of women and controlled directly from Syria. IS, he said, now wants to make women into fighters.
Ladies and gentlemen, in these last few days and hours, the terrorist cell made up of young women totally under the deadly influence of dash has been dismantled. The execution of their project was being directed remotely by individuals in Syria in the ranks of the terrorist organization. If at first it seemed that women were confined to carrying out family and domestic tasks by the terrorist organization, we are now forced to see that that vision is largely outdated.
The three women were arrested overnight as they left a flat 20 miles south of Paris. During the arrests, one of them, a 19-year old, stabbed an officer with a large kitchen knife and was shot by his colleagues in the legs. She was also found to be carrying a pledge to terrorize France in the name of so-called Islamic State. Investigators say one of her associates had previously been engaged to two men both of whom had carried out Jihadist inspired killings in France this year. The women and their associates had already been under surveillance according France interior minister. The three women, he said, were believed to be planning other imminent and violent attacks.

New research has reviewed that a significant proportion of the world’s wilderness has vanished in the past two decades. The World Conservation Society study is published in the latest edition of the journey Current Biology. Our reporter Helen has been looking at its findings. First, what do we mean by the term “lderness”?
I mean, we all have this idea of wilderness in our heads, mountains and untouched landscapes. And here they are talking very much about intact, pristine landscapes, so ecologically intact, mostly free of human disturbances. So you may have some indigenous people living there, but you don’t have homes. You don’t have roads. You don’t have lights at night. You don’t have farming.
So it’s said to be disappearing. And which parts of the world are most infected?
1. Gas cylinder 煤气罐；气体钢筒；高压气瓶
例：Shipment of a compressed gas cylinder filled without the consent of the owner is a violation of Federal Law.
2. Terror attack恐怖袭击
例：Thousands were on hand in New York for the reading of the names of nearly 3000 victims killed in the worst terror attack in US history.
3. Be confined to + n./-ing 限制在，局限在
例：Uses for this technology would not, of course, be confined to advertising.
4. Under surveillance 处于监视下
例：The police have kept the nightclub under surveillance because of suspected illegaldrug activity.
5. Indigenous people 土著人，原住民
例：This year’s meeting will focus on the health of indigenous people.
巴黎首席检察官称，首都市中心车载煤气罐事件中被捕三名女子系受伊斯兰国组织指挥 。弗朗索瓦·莫林还评论说，其中一女子与年初在法国实施恐怖袭击的圣战主义者有关联 。本台巴黎记者露西·威廉姆森报道 。
莫林先生描述了法国面临的新型威胁——仅由女性组成、由叙利亚直接控制的犯罪团伙 。他说，IS现在想把女性变成战士 。
女士们、先生们，在过去的几天和几个小时内，我们解散了由年轻女性组成的、完全受碰撞的致命影响的恐怖小组 。叙利亚恐怖组织旗下人员遥控指挥她们实施计划 。如果开始似乎女性仅限于从事恐怖组织内部的家务劳动，那么现在我们不得不明白，这个观念大大过时了 。
这三名女子从某公寓出发开到巴黎南部20英里后在夜间被捕 。逮捕过程中，其中一个19岁女孩用厨房大刀刺伤了一名官员，然后他的同事向该女孩的腿开了枪 。调查发现她带有以所谓伊斯兰国名义将法国恐怖主义化的誓言 。侦查员称她的一名社会关系曾与两名男子订婚，这两人今年都在法国实施了圣战主义分子鼓动的谋杀 。据法国内政部长透露，这三名女子及她们的社会关系都受到监视 。他说，这三名女子可能在策划即将发生的其他暴力袭击 。
新研究显示，世界荒野的一大部分在过去的20年消失了 。世界保护协会的研究文章被发表在《当代生物学》期刊的最新一期 。本台记者海伦研究了文章中的新发现 。首先，如何定义“荒野”这个词？
其实我们脑海中都有荒野这个概念，可能是大山和未受污染的风景 。但这里主要说的是未受损伤的原始风景，它们在生态上未受损，也大都不受人类干扰 。可能会有原住民生活在那里，但没有家，没有路，夜间没有灯，没有农耕 。
