Hello, this is Daniel Iovanescu with the BBC News. Democrats in the United States have strongly condemned Donald Trump's tax arrangements after the New York Times reported that the president had paid no tax at all in 10 of the 15 years before he took office. Mr. Trump, who has long fought to keep his tax returns private, called it fake news. But the speaker of the House of Representatives, the Democrat Nancy Pelosi, said it was clear the president had taken extraordinary measures to avoid paying his fair share of taxes while hardworking Americans were doing so. This voter in Southern California, Alicia Hand, said it was wrong. It's actually really scary and disturbing that it was allowed to go on for so long to find out that. You know I pay once a month for health care, the same amount he paid in taxes, every week having a hard time right now, struggling. And this was very devastating news for a lot of people.

Heavy fighting between Armenia and Azerbaijan has continued for a second day in the disputed region of Nagorno Karabakh. The administration of the mountainous region said that Armenian positions had lost ground, with another 15 of its troops killed today. It also said that Turkey was helping the Azerbaijan military. At least 23 people on both sides were killed in clashes on Sunday, the worst for many years. Eteri Musayelyan is a spokesperson for the International Committee of the Red Cross in Nagorno Karabakh. We call on the sides to take all measures necessary to ensure that civilian life and infrastructure is respected and protected and spared, in line with the obligation to respect basic rules of international humanitarian law or otherwise law of armed conflict.

The Chinese-owned video sharing App, TikTok, has avoided a ban on new downloads in the United States. A judge issued a temporary injunction just hours before it was due to take effect. As James Clayton explains. A decision late into the evening, the court would need more time to ascertain whether TikTok was a security risk. The injunction is temporary, however. The ban could still go ahead unless TikTok can do three things, agree a deal with US companies, Walmart and Oracle, to create a new partnership based in America, get that signed off by Donald Trump and then get that approved by the Chinese government. This TikTok saga isn't even close to being over.

Opposition parties and farmers are protesting in several Indian states against agricultural reforms signed into law on Sunday. A tractor was set on fire near the famous India Gate Monument in Delhi, while Punjab's chief minister joined a sit-in at the village of an independence hero. The reforms liberalize the market for agricultural produce, but critics say small farmers could suffer by losing a guaranteed minimum price.

大家好,我是丹妮尔·伊万聂斯科,欢迎收听BBC新闻。

美国民主党人强烈谴责了特朗普的避税行为,此前,《纽约时报》报道称,在唐纳德·特朗普总统上任前的15年里有10年没有缴税。特朗普长期以来一直没有公开自己纳税申报单,并表示这是假新闻。但众议院议长、民主党人南希·佩洛西表示,很明显,总统采取了非常措施,避免缴纳他应缴的那部分税款,而辛勤工作的美国人却在辛苦纳税。南加州的选民艾丽西亚·汉德表示,这是错误的。这真的很可怕,也很令人不安,总统避税这么长时间才被曝光。你知道我每个月都要为医保缴税,和他付的税一样多,我现在每个星期都过得很艰难,苦苦挣扎。这对很多人来说都是毁灭性的消息。

亚美尼亚和阿塞拜疆在纳戈尔诺-卡拉巴赫争议地区进行的激烈交战已经持续到了第二天。该山区行政当局表示,亚美尼亚已失去阵地,今天又有15名士兵被杀。当局还表示,土耳其正在帮助阿塞拜疆军队。双方至少有23人在周日的冲突中丧生,这是多年来最严重的一次。艾特瑞·穆萨耶利扬是纳戈尔诺-卡拉巴赫红十字国际委员会的发言人。我们呼吁各方采取一切必要措施,确保平民生活和基础设施得到尊重、保护和保留,同时遵循国际人道主义法或其他武装冲突法基本规则的义务。

中国公司旗下的视频分享应用TikTok避开了停止在美国下载的禁令。就在禁令生效前几个小时,一名法官发布了临时强制令。请听詹姆斯·克莱顿的报道。判决直到深夜才正式发布,法院将需要更多的时间来确定TikTok是否存在安全风险。然而,法院的强制令是暂时的。除非TikTok能做三件事,否则禁令仍将继续。这三件事分别是与美国企业沃尔玛或甲骨文达成协议,从而在美国建立新的合作伙伴关系;得到唐纳德·特朗普的批准;得到中国政府的批准。TikTok事件距离结束还很远。

印度几个邦的反对党和农民正在举行抗议活动,反对周日签署为法律的农业改革法案。一辆拖拉机在德里著名的“印度门”纪念碑附近被纵火点燃,而旁遮普首席部长参加了一位独立英雄村庄的静坐示威。农业改革开放了农产品市场,但批评人士说,小农户可能会因为失去保证的最低价格而遭受损失。
