文字稿

Wildfires in California have forced thousands of people to evacuate their homes. High winds and hot weather are causing difficulties for the 3,000 firefighters tackling the blazes in the south and centre of the state.

美国加利福尼亚州的野火迫使上千名居民撤离了他们的家园。大风和炎热的天气给对抗加州南部和中部大火的三千名消防员的工作带来了困难。

Scientists at Nottingham University say they are confident that cloned animals do not age prematurely. That’s raised hopes that cloning as part of medical research might lead to major advances. The first animal cloned from an adult cell, known as Dolly the sheep, did die prematurely. Researchers say her four cloned siblings are in good health.
