Share prices in New York have fallen sharply again for the 7th day in a row.A sudden plunge in the last hour of trading on Wall Street left the key Dow Jones Index below 9000 for the first time in five years.It鈥檚 now lost more than a third of its value since an all-time high a year ago.Laura Trevelyan reports.
US stocks fell for the seventh day in a row,with the Dow Jones Index of 30 leading American companies sinking rapidly in the last hour of trading.Shares in General Motors,a company in the Dow,have been falling all day because of concern about the carmaker鈥檚 performance so that dragged the index down.But beyond that,the markets are twitchy and volatile.Despite the US government鈥檚 bail-out plan,and the coordinated interest rate cuts worldwide,investors are still nervous.Credit remains tight and the fear is that before too long,companies will start to lay people off and there will be a global recession.
The Prime Minister of Iceland Geir Haarde has expressed confidence that the country will recover from its current severe financial crisis.Mr.Haarde said measures to restructure the banking system were allowing normal banking services to resume.Earlier the Icelandic prime minister had accused Britain of contributing to the collapse of his country鈥檚 last remaining but independent bank which was taken over by the Icelandic government on Thursday.
Two neighbors of Europe鈥檚 newest self-declared independent state,the former Serbian province of Kosovo,have officially recognized it as independent.Macedonia and Montenegro rejected strenuous objections from Serbia in doing so.Shortly before the Macedonian decision was announced,Serbia expelled the Montenegrin ambassador to Belgrade in protest at this decision.Montenegro鈥檚 Foreign Minister,Milan Rocen,said the decision was guided by the government鈥檚 desire to have better relations with its neighbors.
鈥淜osovo is above all a political reality,and our biggest interest is to have stable borders,a fact that also guided us in making this decision.The Montenegrin government also took into consideration the prevailing positions of key countries in the world,members of the EU,and NATO.And their assessment of such a move is an important contribution to the security and stability of the region.鈥滭br/>The NATO military alliance has agreed to send warships to help combat piracy off the coast of Somalia.NATO defense ministers meeting in Hungary agreed to dispatch them to the region within weeks.The NATO Secretary General Jaap De Hoop Scheffer said the task force would serve two purposes.
The bottom line here is the following,huh,there will soon be NATO military vessels off the coast of Somalia hopefully deterring piracy and escorting food shipments.And I think that鈥檚 good news for the people of Somalia and as it to be bad news for the pirates.鈥滭br/>World News from the BBC.

This year鈥檚 Nobel Prize for literature has been awarded to the French writer Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clezio.The Secretary of the Academy described Le Clezio as a citizen of the world.Le Clezio has spent time living with indigenous peoples in Central America and described the experience as crucial to his world view.His early work was marked by an experimental approach,but from the late 70s onwards,his style became more conventional.At a press conference Le Clezio said he didn鈥檛 want to define his work.
I鈥檓 just a writer,that鈥檚 all.I don鈥檛 have any definition of writing,just,I鈥檓 just a writer.A writer is a witness,nothing else than a witness.
