**索马里新议会开始举行第一次会议**

索马里新议会星期一开始会期,与此同时,索马里开始接近于完成建立一个稳定持久政府的复杂方案。

索马里议会应由275名议员组成,一个委员会已经任命了大约220名议员。不过有关官员说,现有议员已可行使议会召开会议。

预计,索马里议员们将在未来几天内选出一位新总统。

按照联合国支持的结束索马里八年过渡政权的方案,星期一是选出议会议长和总统的最后期限。

联合国官员和国际合作者星期天发表联合声明说,现在是索马里进一步实现和平与稳定的一个前所未有的机会。

*New Somali Parliament to Hold First Session *

Somalia's new parliament begins its work Monday, as the country moves closer to completing a complex plan to establish a stable, permanent government.

A selection committee has named about 220 lawmakers for the 275-seat body, but officials say that is enough for the parliament to convene.

The lawmakers are expected to vote for a new Somali president within the coming days.

Monday is the deadline for the election of a speaker of parliament and a president under a United Nations-backed roadmap to end the country's 8-year transitional government.

U.N. officials and international partners issued a joint statement Sunday, saying Somalia has an "unprecedented opportunity for greater peace and stability."

**南非矿主警告罢工工人复工**

南非一座矿场的所属公司说,罢工工人星期一必须复工,否则将被辞退。上星期,警察在这座矿场开枪打死34人。

隆明公司这家矿场星期天发表声明说,对星期一复工的要求是最后通牒。

这座矿场的工人8月10号要求资方提高工资后,大约3千名工人参加了罢工。

上星期四,抗议活动转为暴力,警察向罢工工人开枪。南非警察总监说,警察是出于自卫向罢工矿工开火。

南非总统祖马下令从星期一开始,为死于暴力的南非人举行为期一星期的全国哀悼。

*South African Mine Owner Warns Striking Workers to Return *

The owner of a South African mine where police killed 34 people last week says striking workers must return to the job Monday or face being fired.

Lonmin PLC said in a statement Sunday that the deadline is a "final ultimatum."

About 3,000 people have joined the strike since August 10 to demand higher wages.

The protest turned violent last Thursday when police opened fire on striking workers. The national police chief says police forces shot in self-defense.

President Jacob Zuma has ordered a national week of mourning beginning Monday to remember the lives of all South Africans who died violently.
