**伊斯兰国组织摧毁又一叙利亚稀世古迹**

伊斯兰国组织的激进分子据报摧毁了叙利亚古城帕尔米拉的又一个稀世古迹。

活动人士说,该组织把城里的凯旋门炸得“粉碎”。

叙利亚人权观察说,凯旋门存放了被激进分子视为亵渎神灵的装饰物。

卫星图像证实这则消息。这将是伊斯兰国组织自今年5月夺取帕尔米拉城以来所摧毁的第三个古迹。

目前已经有两座古罗马时期的神庙被炸毁。

极端分子认为这些历史古迹和图画亵渎神灵。联合国和历史学家认为毁坏古迹是战争罪。

Islamic State destroyed another irreplaceable ancient artifact

Islamic State militants have reportedly destroyed another irreplaceable ancient artifact in the ancient Syrian city of Palmyra.

Activists say Islamic State blew up the city's Arch of Triumph, describing it has having been "pulverized."

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says the arch had ornaments that Islamic State militants considered blasphemous.

If the destruction is confirmed by satellite images, it would be the third ancient site destroyed since the Islamic State group seized Palmyra in May.

Two Roman-era temples already have been blown up.

The extremists consider ancient historic artifacts and images to be blasphemous. The United Nations and historians regard such actions to be war crimes.


**美国将设立两个新海洋保护区**

美国总统奥巴马星期一将向智利主办的一个保护世界海洋生态系统的峰会发表视频演讲,宣布美国在马里兰州和威斯康辛州设立两个新的美国海洋保护区。

其他国家预计也会宣布采取类似的行动。

美国国务卿克里在智利参加这次峰会。

几个国家和基金会将承诺投入资金并提出倡议,遏制海洋污染、过度捕捞以及碳排放所导致的海洋酸性化。

美国预计还宣布一项称作“海洋侦察”的计划,希望能制止全球非法和没有管治的捕鱼贸易。

智利总统巴切莱特和外交部长埃拉尔多·穆尼奥斯也将在峰会上发言。

US to set up two new marine sanctuaries

U.S. President Barack Obama will address the summit Monday in a video message to announce the creation of two new U.S. marine sanctuaries in the states of Maryland and Wisconsin.

Other countries are also expected to announce similar moves.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is attending the conference.

Several countries and foundations are set to pledge funds and propose initiatives to fight pollution, overfishing and the acidification of the ocean by carbon emissions.

The U.S. is also expected to announce a plan, called Sea Scout, designed to bring a halt to the world's illegal and unregulated fishing trade.

Chilean President Michelle Bachelet and Foreign Minister Heraldo Munoz will also speak at the conference.
