On Wednesday a committee of experts from several Arab countries met in Amman, Jordan, to gather documents that will be brought before the International Court of Justice in an attempt to start legal actions against Israel’s archeological excavations in Jerusalem. According to the Jordanian representative to UNESCO, Moawiyah Ibrahim, Israeli authorities are using archeological findings for political gains. “Israel has used Biblical texts to support their national narrative and have disregarded Arab-Islamic heritage,” he said. The committee will also suggest that UNESCO gets an increased role in the old city of Jerusalem which is listed on the organizations endangered heritage sites list.

A plume of white steam billows from ruined reactor 3 (the second structure from the left) at Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, as seen in a Wednesday satellite image—two days after an explosion blew the roof off the unit’s secondary containment building.
Varying levels of damage are visible in the all four reactor units at left, while the two tall white rectangular structures at right, reactor buildings 5 and 6, remain intact.
Authorities on site are resorting to ever more desperate measures to quell the worst nuclear crisis in 25 years, which began after Japan’s recent earthquake and tsunami resulted in loss of power to the generating station’s crucial cooling systems.
To avert a catastrophic meltdown, authorities have tried dropping water from helicopters and shooting it from military trucks’ water cannons. But radiation levels are creating peril for workers, and residents within a 12-mile (20-kilometer) radius have been evacuated. U.S. officials have urged a wider evacuation area and warn that it could take weeks to get the crisis under control.
