Front Page: Peace Talks to Resume, China Upholds One Child


  • Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, said today that he intends to resume negotiations on a plan for peace with Israel. The agreement came after a visit from US Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice and heavy pressure from the United States. He did not set a date to resume talks and faces great political pressure at home to stay away from the table if the Palestinian death toll continues to rise from Israeli attacks on Gaza. Recent reports show that conditions in Gaza are the worst they've been in 40 years.
  • China is now denying suggestions that it is about to change its controversial one-child policy. The Family Planning Chief said that the rule limiting families to one child, or two in rural areas, will remain in place, though the rules have been blamed for a gender imbalance as families are eager for sons rather than daughters. The Director of the State Population and Family Planning Commission said, "Changes to the family planning policy now could lead to population rises, posing higher pressure on China's future development."
