Obama says the world has enough oil to crack down on Iran. According to Reuters, President Barack Obama vowed to forge ahead with tough sanctions on Iran, saying there was enough oil in the world market -- including emergency stockpiles -- to allow countries to cut Iranian imports. In his decision, required by a sanctions law he signed in December, Obama said increased production by some countries as well as "the existence of strategic reserves" helped him come to the conclusion that sanctions can advance.

Reports say North Korea has Launched Two Short-Range Missiles According to Voice of America News, two South Korean newspapers say North Korea has test fired two short-range missiles off its west coast. The Chosun Ilbo [ILL-BO] says the two missiles launched Thursday were surface-to-ship missiles. The newspaper says it learned from an unnamed military official the launch was aimed at improving the missile's performance, and was unrelated to next month's scheduled rocket launch. The JoongAng Ilbo newspaper carried a similar report.

Sudan's Aerial Bombing Aims At Churches In Nuba Mountains. According to Compass Direct News, after Khartoum denied that it had bombed civilians earlier this month, Sudanese aerial strikes last week were aimed at church buildings and schools in Ka-u-da. An-to-nov airplanes dropped bombs destroying some houses and cattle near the church buildings and schools but causing no casualties. Humanitarian agencies consider the Islamic government's targeting of civilians in the Nuba Mountains, which has a large Christian population, an "ethnic cleansing" against non-Arab peoples in the multi-ethnic state, with the added incentive of ridding the area of Christians.
