美国疾病控制与预防中心公布的初步数字显示,15岁至19岁的女性生育率去年同比下降8%,比1991年下降了64%。

2015年,美国新生婴儿398万,略少于2014年,平均每1000名女性生育62.5个婴儿。

Births Among Young Women Hit Records Lows in US

The number of babies born to young women continues to decline in the United States.

A record low number of teenagers and women in their 20s gave birth in the U.S. in 2015, according to new government data released Thursday.

Preliminary figures from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention showed the birth rate among mothers ages 15 to 19 fell by 8 percent last year, and has dropped 64 percent since 1991.

Overall, U.S. mothers gave birth to 3.98 million babies in 2015, only slightly fewer than the year before. The birth rate was 62.5 per 1,000 women.

The numbers continue the trend of women giving birth later in life.

Those age 20 to 24 had 3 percent fewer births last year, a figure that has declined by 27 percent during the past decade. For those 25 to 29, the birth rate fell by 1 percent.

But women in their 30s saw their fifth consecutive year of increases, while the birth rate for women 40 to 44 jumped by 4 percent last year.

索马里酒店袭击至少10人丧生

索马里首都的目击者说,武装分子星期三袭击当地一家大酒店,至少10人丧生,超过15人受伤。

索马里一名议员告诉美国之音说,两名国会议员在袭击中丧生,还有一名议员受伤。

当时在酒店的一名议员描述袭击的情景时说:“我正在房间里睡觉,被巨大的爆炸声震醒。飞来的一扇门和窗砸到我身上,我从酒店后门跑出来,死里逃生。”

一名为美国之音工作的自由撰稿人报道说,他看到酒店门前躺着5具尸体。

据报大多数伤亡是由一辆装满炸药的汽车在很多人进行晚间祈祷时引爆造成的。

对摩加迪沙“大使酒店”的突袭发生几小时前,索马里官员表示,激进组织青年党的一位最高指挥官在一次深夜军事行动中被击毙。

这名青年党头目穆罕默德·马哈茂德涉嫌策划了2015年4月在肯尼亚的加里萨大学学院的袭击行动。那次袭击导致148人丧生,几乎全部是学生。

At Least 10 Killed in Somalia Hotel Attack

Witnesses in Somalia's capital say at least 10 people were killed and more than 15 others wounded when militants attacked a major hotel Wednesday.

A Somali lawmaker told VOA that two parliamentarians were killed during the attack. He said a third lawmaker was injured.

One of the lawmakers at the hotel described the attack, saying: "As I was sleeping in my hotel room, I was shocked by a huge explosion. A flying door and window fell on me. I ran toward the back door of the hotel and managed to survive," he said.

A freelance journalist working for VOA reported seeing five dead bodies lying in front of the hotel.

Most of the casualties were reported to be caused by a car bomb that detonated while many people were performing evening prayers.

The assault on Mogadishu's Ambassador Hotel came hours after Somali officials said a top commander of militant group al-Shabab was killed in a late-night military operation.

Mohamed Mohamud allegedly masterminded the April 2015 attack on Kenya's Garissa University College that left 148 people dead, nearly all of them students.
