From NPR News in Washington I am Lakshmi Singh.

Air travel in Europe is described as the worst since 9/11. More airports across the continent are shutting down because of the huge cloud of ash from Iceland’s volcanic eruption is spreading. NPR’s Eric Westervelt says Germany is among the latest to expand its airport closures.

German authorities today have stopped flights to most of the country’s 16 International Airports including Frankfurt,Germany’s busiest airport and a key hub in Europe. Traffic was also stopped at airports in Berlin, Dusseldorf, Hamburg and Cologne. Germany’s air traffic controllers say the air space over much of northern and western Germany will remain closed today. They added that flights have been so disrupted across Europe that it’s hard to say when air travel will get back to normal. Eric Westervelt , NPR News, Berlin.

NPR’s Rob Gifford is in the thick of it. He and his wife have been traveling back from Shanghai to London but they are stuck in Lyon France where he and many others are trying to board the Euro Star train since flying off-limit.

Any one who is trying to get to Britain is converting on Lyon the town where I am now,to trying get on to the Euro Star train. And Euro Star that go underneath the English Channel, they have laid on extra train for trying to take the capacity but there’s a long backlog and the tickets are very difficult to come by. NPR’s Rob Gifford in Lyon, northern France.

The Investment Bank Goldman Sachs is charged with fraud over the way it marketed a mortgage back financial product to investors. Our member station WNYC in New York … reports.

The SEC says Goldman failed to inform customers about the true origin of the collateralized debt obligation, or CDO they were purchasing, specifically the fact that these instruments had been created at the request of an outside hedge fund Paulson & Co. And that Paulson had deliberately chosen risky mortgages for collateral. SEC Director of Enforcement Robert Khuzami says Paulson then shorted it or bet against the CDO and its value quickly deteriorated.

“As a result investors in the CDO lost approximately one billion dollars and Paulson's positions yielded a profit in approximately same amount.”

A Goldman/ vice president is also charged in the complaint. But Paulson & Co is not facing SEC’s action. Goldman Sachs says it will fight the charges. For NPR News I am …

In a related issue President Obama is pledging to veto a financial overhaul bill if it does not regulate the derivatives market.

“The devastating recession that we just went through offered a very painful lesson in what happens when we don't have adequate accountability and transparency and consumer protection.”

Congress is considering a bill that for the first time regulates derivatives which are complex financial tools such as mortgage backed securities.

On news about Goldman Sachs stocks continue to decline,Dow is down nearly 120.

This is NPR News.

A UN commission into the 2007 assassination of former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto issued a withering report condemning the then government of General Pervez Musharraf for failing to protect her or vigorously investigate her killing. From Islamabad, NPR’s Julie McCarthy has details.

A three-member UN commission was charged with investigating the assassination of Pakistan’s popular leader as she was on the verge of a political comeback. Their report called the security arrangements for Bhutto fatally insufficient. Bhutto was vocal about the dangers that al-Qaeda and the Taliban posed to Pakistan. And the militants had motive to remove her from the scene,the government’s announcement to 24 hours after her killing that militants have done yet was, said the commission not only premature but prejudiced any further investigation. The UN report found the performance of the police lacked both independence and the political will to find the truth. The crime scene had been hosed down within hours of Bhutto’s murder,washing away evidence as the UN reports said was deliberate. The investigators also said intelligence agencies and other government officials had hampered the UN’s own probe. Julie McCarthy NPR News, Islamabad.

The spreading ash cloud from Iceland’s volcanic eruption this week is complicating matters in Poland where President Lech Kaczynski’s State Funeral is scheduled for Sunday. His families insist the funeral will move forward as planed but the airport where world leaders are supposed to arrive on Sunday that is closed because of dangerous posed by the volcanic ash. President Kaczynski and many of Poland’s top civilian and defense chiefs were among 95 people killed in a plane crash last week.
