发表时间:2018-02-21内容来源:VOA英语学习网

AP NEWS一分钟,是美联社(Associated Press)推出的长度约一分钟的新闻简讯形式的报道。它因短小简洁、时效性强,深受广大英语爱好者追捧。美联社是美国最大的通讯社,也是国际性通讯社之一,全称为“美国联合通讯社”,英文简称AP。 马克·吐温曾说:“给地球各个角落带来光明的只有两个:天上的太阳和地上的美联社。”“美联社时事精华,一分钟展现鲜活世界”不但是英语听力训练的好素材,也是通晓国际时事的窗口。

This is AP NEWS minute.

1. Three people are dead after a car rammed into crowded protesters and a helicopter crash into the woods Saturday, as tensions boiled over a white supremacist rally in Virginia. Dozens were injured after chaos erupted around what is believed to the largest group of white nationalists to come together in a decade, rallying against plans to remove a confederate statue in Charlottesville.

2. President Donald Trump blamed "many sides" for the violent clashes between protesters and white supremacists  in Virginia, and asserted the hatred and bigotry across the country have taken root long before his political ascendancy. Trump spoke from his golf club house in New Jersey.

3. In Caracas, thousands of Venezuelan opposition supporters marched peacefully Saturday against the government of president Nicolas Maduro. Many in the march say they are against president Trump's talk of a potential military option to resolve their country's political CRIsis.

4. Hundreds of Iraqi civilians are fleeing the villages around Tal Afar daily, in anticipation of a government attack on one of the last towns under the control of Islamic State group in northern Iraq. Around 150 people arrived on Saturday at a collection point just west of Mosul, exhausted after a long strenuous journey.
