Wide of Chavez supporters rioting STORYLINE: An opposition march by thousands of Venezuelans to deliver a petition with 2 million (m) signatures demanding an early vote on Hugo Chavez's presidency disintegrated into clashes among marchers, government supporters and police on Monday At least 16 people were wounded by live gunfire and more than 60 hurt in street battles between National Guardsmen protecting the opposition marchers and the government supporters. Government supporters attacked marchers and police, and soldiers responded with a fusillade of tear gas and rubber bullets. It wasn't immediately clear who fired the live ammunition which caused so many injuries. Among the wounded was Associated Press Television cameraman Mauricio Munoz, who suffered minor chest wound, saved from worse injury or death by his bullet-proof vest. Monday's violence erupted despite pleas from government officials and state television to allow the tens of thousands of opposition marchers to proceed peacefully. According to Venezuela's constitution, a non-binding referendum on matters of national importance can be called with the support of 10 percent of the electorate, or 1.2 million people. Chavez, pressured by a steep plunge in his popularity and a severe economic and social crisis, insists a vote can't be held until August, or halfway into his six-year term, at which point it would be binding. Since his 1998 election and 2000 re-election, Chavez has become an increasingly divisive figure as he tries to appeal to the country's poor and while alienating the wealthy. Rising unemployment, a collapse in the national currency, the unsolved slayings of dozens during the April coup and a paralyzed judicial system fuel opposition claims that Chavez no longer can govern. But the opposition wants a December 4 non-binding vote, saying Venezuela can't wait until next year. The impasse has convulsed Venezuela and raised the spectre of a second military coup since April - or even civil war. Anti-Chavez demonstrators, who want to oust the president who they say is creating a totalitarian regime, have threatened to start an indefinite general strike that could affect oil processing in the world's fifth largest producer.

So basically, it is one of those families where there are so many tragic deaths and obviously that has cast a huge shadow over Benazir herself." PTV - No Access Pakistan Islamabad 17. Wide of President General Pervez Musharraf meeting officials from Pakistan Ministry of Education 18. Mid of Musharraf 19. Various of officials 20. Mid of Musharraf STORYLINE: Former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto said on Friday she would not give in to the militants whom she blamed for an assassination attempt against her - a suicide attack that killed up to 136 people and dampened her long-awaited return to Pakistan. Bhutto said that ahead of her arrival in Karachi on Thursday, she had been warned suicide squads had been dispatched to kill her. She said telephone numbers of suicide squads had been given to her by a "brotherly" country and she alerted President General Pervez Musharraf in a letter dated October 16. "There was one suicide squad from the Taliban elements, one suicide squad from al-Qaida, one suicide squad from Pakistani Taliban and a fourth group I believe from Karachi," she said. Bhutto claimed the next attack against her would target her homes in Karachi and her hometown of Larkana, using attackers posing as supporters of a rival political faction. She said she was confident the government would take measures to prevent it. Baitullah Mehsud, a top militant leader on the unstable Afghan border, threatened this month to meet Bhutto's return to Pakistan with suicide attacks, according to local media reports. An associate of Mehsud, however, denied Taliban involvement. Bhutto also defended her decision to negotiate with Musharraf, who seized power in a 1999 coup, saying it was aimed at a transition to democracy. "To save Pakistan, and to save democracy, because we believe democracy alone can save Pakistan from disintegration and a militant take-over, then we are prepared to risk our lives and we are prepared to risk our liberty. But we are not prepared to surrender our great nation to the militants." Thursday's attack was one of the deadliest in Pakistan's history. The back-to-back explosions went off near a bulletproof truck that was carrying Bhutto and top party officials through the streets of Karachi. Just 10 hours after landing in Pakistan, her jubilant homecoming parade turned into a scene of blood and carnage, ripping victims apart and hurling a fireball into the sky. Bhutto narrowly escaped the attack, which shattered the windows of her truck. In an interview with British broadcaster Sky News on Friday, she described the moments after the second blast. "The whole truck rocked and a huge light went up and there was more splintering of glass and shrapnel and all sorts of gore and it was dark and yet light because of the light of the bomb and then when we looked over, we just sort of peeked over and it was just dead bodies," Bhutto said. Zahid Hussain, a political analyst, told AP Television he believed the attack would "cast a huge shadow" over Bhutto because her father and two brothers had been killed as well. Bhutto picked up the heavy political legacy of her father, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto. During his time as Pakistan's leader, Bhutto introduced parliamentary democracy and pushed what could be described as Islamic socialist policies. He won a landslide election in 1977, but allegations of vote-rigging and corruption hounded him. Civil unrest broke out. In July 1977, General Zia-ul Haq staged a military coup and had Bhutto arrested and executed two years later. Her estranged brother Murtaza died in a gunbattle with police in Karachi in 1996. Bhutto's youngest brother, Shahnawaz, died under mysterious circumstances in France a decade earlier, in 1986. President General Pervez Musharraf phoned Bhutto on Friday to express his profound grief over Thursday's suicide attack that left up to 136 people dead, officials said. Musharraf told the former premier that he was shocked by the attack and that he prayed for her safety and security, his spokesman said. Musharraf and Bhutto both expressed their unflinching resolve to fight extremism, added the president's spokesman.

RODNEY WILLIAM ANSELL ambushed and killed a police sergeant on Tuesday (3/8) from his hiding place in the bushes along a motorway. Another officer returned fire, killing 44yearold Ansell during the confrontation, 30 miles (48 kilometres) south of the Northern Territory capital of Darwin. It was during a shootout at this roadblock, set up by police to catch an unidentified attacker, that the reallife Crocodile Dundee met his death. His barefoot body, found with two highpowered rifles, did not carry any identification. Police had spent the previous 12 hours searching for a man who had attacked a nearby house on Monday night, injuring two people. Police officials said Ansell was probably behind that attack as well. The gunfight brought to a dramatic conclusion the life of a man whose survival instincts and rough wilderness manner made him famous as a symbol of Australian toughness. Ansell became a local hero in 1977 after being swept out to sea and landing on a small island with nothing but wallabies and cattle to sustain him for two months. A rifle and his two dogs were among the few items he was able to salvage. He stayed alive by shooting sharks and buffalo and drinking their blood after a crocodile attacked his small boat. Only the timely visit to the island by an Aboriginal tribe saved him. Ansell's story sparked actor and writer PAUL HOGAN'S imagination and inspired him, KEN SHADIE and JOHN CORNELL to write a film about an Outback superstar. "Crocodile Dundee", which starred Hogan, became an international comedy hit in 1986 and earned its three writers an academy award nomination for best original screenplay. Ansell was named the Northern Territory's 1988 Territorian of the Year for inspiring the film that put the Outback on the map. But Ansell's fortunes fell sharply in the past decade. Financial difficulties forced him to sell his Melaleuca ranch in the early 1990s, and he blamed the Northern Territory government for not compensating him properly during a disease eradication programme that cost him threethousand head of cattle. On Monday (2/8), police responded to reports that a man had fired shots at locals. On Tuesday, two officers were preparing to dismantle a roadblock on the Stuart Highway which they had set up to capture the attacker, when a motorist stopped to ask for directions. Suddenly shots flew from a roadside bush, injuring the motorist in the back and piercing a gap in one of the officers' bulletproof vest. His partner returned fire, killing Ansell. The attack left police baffled and searching fruitlessly for a motive. Different people knew different sides of Ansell. But most people who came across this fiery character had a story to tell. A post mortem examination will be carried out and it's hoped the toxicology results will show whether Ansell was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the attack.

Col George Krivo, Coalition Military Spokesman "On September 12th at approximately midnight a patrol from the US military operating in the vicinity of a Jordanian run hospital near Fallujah was attacked from a truck by unknown forces. Coalition forces immediately returned fire and the subsequent engagement lasted approximately three hours. Regrettably during the incident extensive damage was done to the hospital and several security personnel were killed including 8 Iraqis and one Jordanian national. The senior military leadership of the coalition has been in contact with the Jordanian military and Iraqi authorities to express our deep regret and apologies. Today the Coalition has initiated an investigation into the incident to get a full accounting of the facts. We wish to express our deepest regret for this incident to the families that have lost loved ones and express our sincerest condolences." 17. Wide shot briefing STORYLINE: The U.S. military apologized on Saturday for the friendly fire killing here of eight Iraqi policemen and a Jordanian guard, but anger washed over the people in Fallujah on Saturday as they buried their dead in scenes that may trigger a new cycle of bloodshed for American troops in the country's most troubled region. Gunfire erupted throughout Fallujah, a city of 200,000 people 50 kilometers (30 miles) west of Baghdad, as residents gathered to bury the eight policemen, whose flag-draped coffins were carried into a mosque for religious rites before they were given to family members for burial. In an ominous message, Fawzi Namiq, the mosque's imam, said through loudspeakers: "Save your bullets for the chests of the enemy." The U.S. military issued an apology for the incident _ the worst case of friendly fire since major hostilities in Iraq were declared over May 1 _ and offered condolences to the victims' families. An investigation had begun, it said. However, military spokesman Lt. Col. George Krivo said the Americans only fired after they had been "attacked from a truck by unknown forces." Relations between Fallujah's residents and U.S. forces in the area have been on a knife's edge since shortly after the city was captured in April. Friday's killings were certain to inflame the smoldering hatred of the American occupation. Fallujah is part of the so-called Sunni triangle _ a vast swath of land astride the Tigris and the Euphrates west and north of Baghdad _ where the mainly Sunni Muslim population gave deposed dictator Saddam Hussein his strongest base of support during his 23-year rule. As mourners assembled some in the crowd chanted: "There is no God but God, and America is the enemy of God." Angry residents roughed up reporters who were in the city to witness the funeral ceremony and burials. A clergyman grabbed one armed man and prevented him from shooting at a departing AP Television News car as it sped from the city. A CNN cameraman was beaten and an Associated Press photographer was hit in the face. The policemen who died were members of the U.S.-trained paramilitary group that did police work in the region around the city and protected infrastructure. Tribal leaders and city dignitaries issued a statement, distributed in mosques, calling for a one-day general strike on Sunday and a three-day period of mourning to begin the same day. U.S. troops who had been directing reconstruction projects from the Fallujah mayor's office were not there Saturday. Police at the mayor's office said the Americans' absence was understandable given Friday's events. Besides the reports of nine deaths, Iraqi police in Fallujah, 50 kilometers (30 miles) west of Baghdad, said nine people were wounded in the incident which occurred as police in three vehicles were chasing a car that had been involved highway banditry. The firing began as the police lost sight of their quarry and turned around in front of the Jordanian hospital, which was badly shot up during the firefight. It appeared that Jordanian guards joined in the shooting thinking they were under attack. The 100-bed Jordanian military field hospital was set up in April to provide Iraqis and others with medical care in Fallujah. It also houses diplomats transferred after a car bomb attack on the Jordanian Embassy in Baghdad last month. The U.S. military said its investigation of the shooting would be lead by Brig. Gen. Jeffrey J. Schloesser of the 101st Airborne Division. Many Iraqis claim friends and relatives have been shot and killed when they failed to stop at U.S. checkpoints in Baghdad, but until Friday there had been no reports of a friendly fire incident of such magnitude involving U.S. forces and the growing U.S.-sponsored Iraqi police, militia and military.

Close of computer screen as Slusher writes to his son 21. Various of Slusher typing on laptop computer STORYLINE As a member of the US Army's 541st Forward Surgical Team stationed in the Zabul mountains in in south-eastern Afghanistan, Captain Richard M. Slusher faces life and death situations everyday, a far cry from his past life as a sports medicine specialist in Cincinnati. Slusher recently found himself unable to save an eight-year-old boy rushed to the US military base after being fatally injured by one of the many unexploded bomb scattered across Zabul's landscape. Hours earlier, Slusher and his colleagues were forced to amputate an Afghan police officer's legs after he was injured in a roadside bomb attack. The attack killed one man and injured six others. "How you deal with somebody coming in and has their leg blown off or their arm blown off or is on the verge of death and you have to try to bring him back. But its always rewarding when you can do something for them," Slusher told an Associated Press Television cameraman embedded with the US Army in Zabul. It's a long way from the small incision, computer-guided arthroscopic surgery on athletes' knees that Slusher is used to performing. Slusher told AP television that he has dealt with situations in Afghanistan that he had never encountered before in his career. He said he has performed more amputations in the past six months than ever before. It does not seem unlikely that things will slow down during the second half of his yearlong tour with the US Army's 541st Forward Surgical Team. The 10-man unit is half the size of a standard Army surgical team. The unit treats mostly US, coalition and Afghan military and police forces. "The majority of the patients that we have seen here have been Afghan National Army. There have been other coalition forces that had come through in addition to US soldiers. But primarily we had seen the vast majority being Afghan National Army and Afghan National Police," said Major George B. Lantz, the anaesthetist of the team. The understaffed unit, housed in two small rooms, is the most sophisticated medical facility in Zabul. Which means that the medical team are often overwhelmed with casualties. But Lantz says that the stress definitely brings the team together. "When we have a mass casualty and there are 10, 15 patients coming in at once, the relationships that we've built over the past few months really strengthen what we do,"said Lantz. In February, nine seriously injured soldiers were rushed to the medical unit after US Chinook helicopter crash in Zabul that killed eight other soldiers. All nine injured soldiers, including ones with severed spinal cords and severe trauma, were stabilised and evacuated from the unit with eight hours. But Slusher is looking forward to the day when he can retire after 17 years in the service and open a private sports medicine practice. He is also looking forward to going home to his family. Slusher keeps a diary of his time in Afghanistan on a laptop computer for his five year old son, back in the United States. He writes to him everyday from his room on Lagman Military Base in Zabul. "I just basically explain to him what I am doing. Why we are here. Why I do what I do and what I do. He is only five right now so he is not able to read it. But hopefully when he is 15, 16 years from now, he will be able to look back on this and he will be able to read this and he will be able to understand why we are here, what I am doing. And explain why I left for a year of his life," said Slusher.

Close pull out to wide of flower memorial outside Domkirke STORYLINE: A memorial of flowers, flags and candles continued to grow in downtown Oslo on Tuesday morning, as people mark their grief for those lost in a bomb attack and shooting rampage. On cobblestone streets outside Oslo's Domkirke, what started as a small tribute has grown to fill a large section of pavement, in memory of the victims of Anders Behring Breivik's attacks on Friday. Over the weekend, police set up a barrier system to more carefully control access, because of the sheer volume of people who wanted to leave flowers. There's still a large international media presence in Oslo, as more details of Friday's attacks continue to emerge. The square near Domkirke has more than a dozen media vehicles, positions for TV crews in tents and satellite dishes. Breivik, the self-described perpetrator of Norway's deadly bombing and shooting rampage, was ordered held in solitary confinement after calmly telling a court that two other cells of collaborators stood ready to join his murderous campaign. Breivik, who has admitted bombing the capital and opening fire on a youth group retreat on an island resort, told authorities on Monday that he expects to spend the rest of his life in prison. Declaring he wanted to save Europe from "Muslim domination", he entered a plea of not guilty that will guarantee him future court hearings and opportunities to address the public, even indirectly.

Various of young people lighting candles STORYLINE: Israeli warplanes, pressing one of Israel's deadliest assaults ever on Palestinian militants, dropped bombs and missiles on a top security installation and dozens of other targets across Hamas-ruled Gaza on Sunday. The strikes continued after nightfall with a hit on a house in Gaza City. The injured, including at least one woman and a child, were taken to hospital for treatment. Also on Sunday night, Palestinians in the West Bank city of Ramallah held a candlelit vigil to show their solidarity with Gazans, and to protest at the intensive Israeli bombardment there. Israel's Cabinet authorised a call up of at least 6,500 reserve soldiers, suggesting plans to expand an offensive against Gaza rocket squads that has already killed more than 280 Palestinians, most of them Hamas police. Israel launched some 250 airstrikes over the first 24 hours of the campaign, which began on Saturday. Witnesses said Israeli warplanes dropped three bombs on Sunday on the Seraya compound in downtown Gaza, including a prison building there. Health officials said four people were killed and 25 wounded in the attack. A column of black smoke towered from the building, and some inmates of the compound's prison fled after the missiles struck. Hamas police recaptured some of them. The compound is a major symbol of the Hamas group's authority. Minutes after the strike, Hamas police defiantly planted the movement's green flag in the rubble. But, even as Israel bombed Gaza, defiant Hamas leaders threatened revenge. Speaking in Gaza City on Sunday, Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum called on the Hamas military wing and all Palestinian factions "to remain on high alert and to take charge and take on the responsibility of defending the Palestinian people, and to target the Zionists deeply with fierce and severe attacks." Meanwhile, residents in southern Gaza were sifting through the rubble of earlier strikes. One airstrike hit the local municipality building, causing major damage, but no injuries were reported. Earlier, Israeli aircraft targeted a tanker truck in the town, touching off a blaze that raged out of control and spread to about a dozen nearby houses. One of the main medicine warehouses supplying local pharmacies in southern Gaza was attacked in another sortie. Local residents said the tanker and the warehouse contained supplies that had been smuggled into Gaza through underground tunnels with Egypt, suggesting Israel was widening its offensive to go after businesses that are a source of income for Hamas. The initial waves of attacks on Saturday focused on key Hamas security installations and rocket-launching pads. The Palestine Liberation Organisation, dominated by Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah movement, called a one-day commercial strike through the West Bank and urged Palestinians to take to the streets in peaceful protests. In east Jerusalem, which is mainly populated by Arabs, youths burned tyres in the streets and threw stones at Israeli police officers to protest the Gaza attacks. The bombing campaign has inflamed public opinion across the Arab world, which has responded with protests and condemnations. Crowds of thousands swept into the streets of cities around the Middle East to protest at Israel's air assault. Meanwhile, militants in Gaza, unbowed, kept up the pressure on Israel, firing dozens of rockets and mortars at Israeli border communities on Sunday. Two rockets struck close to the largest city in southern Israel, Ashdod, some 38 kilometres (23 miles) from Gaza, reaching deeper into Israel than ever before. The targeting of Ashdod confirmed Israel's concern that militants are capable of putting major cities within rocket range. No serious injuries were reported in any of the attacks on Sunday.

A Palestinian man identified as Ahmad Muhammed al-Daneasy, 26, was killed in the Ramallah attack, security officials said. In Gaza, Palestinian Health Ministry officials said a woman named Hayat al-Haitham, 40, was not wounded but died of shock. Forty people were hurt in Gaza, officials added. The Israeli strikes were in retaliation for Palestinian attacks on Wednesday which killed ten Israelis and wounded thirty. During Wednesday's attacks, Palestinians set off a bomb and opened fire on a bus and several cars in the West Bank, at the same time as two Palestinian suicide bombers blew themselves up next to Israeli cars in Gaza. In Jerusalem, Israel increased security in the city's crowded areas after reports that Islamic militants were to carry out further attacks against Israeli targets. CLIP 065 : MIDEAST R; Source: GBRTV; ;VRS;;13-DEC-2001;Audio: NATURAL;Language: ; STORY: Israel severed ties with Palestinian President Yasser Arafat on Thursday (December 13) and struck Palestinian targets after militants killed 10 Israelis in violence that threatened to wreck a U.S. envoy's peace mission. Israeli forces advanced to within 100 metres (yards) of Arafat's headquarters in the West Bank city of Ramallah after Israel, which has long ruled out negotiations under fire, said the Palestinian leader was not a partner for peace. Israeli warplanes carried out more than a dozen strikes in the West Bank and Gaza after Palestinian militants ambushed a bus with a roadside bomb and grenades and machineguns near the Jewish settlement of Immanuel in the West Bank on Wednesday. Ten Israelis and one of the attackers were killed. Many of the Israeli dead were settlers, whom militants consider legitimate targets as occupiers of Palestinian lands. The al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, an armed organisation linked to Arafat's Fatah group, claimed responsibility for the bus attack and said it was in revenge for recent deadly assaults by Israeli forces. But the Islamic resistance group Hamas said one of its members was also among the gunmen. In Gaza, two suicide bombers blew themselves up in a Jewish settlement bloc, wounding three people. Hamas claimed responsibility, saying it was in revenge for Israel's killing of four militants in a helicopter missile strike in southern Gaza on Tuesday night. The dramatic surge in violence dealt another blow to the two-week-old mission of U.S. envoy Anthony Zinni to secure an end to nearly 15 months of Israeli-Palestinian bloodshed. Since Zinni's arrival in the region, 44 Israelis and 21 Palestinians have been killed. U.S. diplomatic sources said the former Marine Corps general would not abandon his quest. After the bus ambush, Arafat took the unprecedented step of ordering the closure of all offices and institutions of Hamas and Islamic Jihad, the groups behind dozens of suicide attacks inside Israel. But Israel said it blamed Arafat "for not reining in these terrorists" and the United States repeated its calls for the Palestinian leader to do more to end the wave of militant attacks that have drawn swift Israeli retaliation. As the security cabinet met, Israeli F-16s pounded the largest security installation in the Gaza Strip and other targets in a wave of raids that lasted hours. They attacked Gaza International Airport, a symbol of Palestinian aspirations for statehood, and an installation in the West Bank city of Nablus which Israel described as a weapons factory. Israeli helicopters fired missiles at a Voice of Palestine transmission mast in Ramallah, near Arafat's headquarters. Officials said he was in the office at the time. Israeli tanks demolished several positions held by Arafat's elite Force-17 and National Security Forces in Ramallah and troops seized five of six entry points into the city and the Voice of Palestine compound, witnesses said.

Israeli troops detonated explosives around the base of the main transmitter of the Palestinian Authority's radio station in Ramallah destroying the antenna and knocking the station off the air. A crowd gathered to watch as the troops prepared to demolish the radio tower. Israeli soldiers tried to force back foreign television crews who had gathered to film the event and a tear gas cannister was fired into the centre of the crowd. People fled in panic and a number of foreign cameramen were overcome by tear gas fumes. Bulldozers destroyed much of a nearby broadcasting building. The Director General of the Radio station, Bassem Abu Sumayeh, said the action was an attack on freedom of speech and a disgrace in a country that claimed to be a democracy. Meanwhile Israeli tanks positioned themselves around Yasser Arafat's headquarters with, Palestinian sources claimed, their gun barrels aimed at his Ramallah base. Israeli troops also entered Ramallah at three points. Brig. Gen. Ron Kitrey said Israeli troops were digging in around that town and others as counter-terror measures.

FERNANDES WALKS AWAY STORY: A group of armed men opened fire in India's parliament complex on Thursday (December 13), killing several people in an unprecedented attack on the seat of government in the world's largest democracy. Several ministers were in the building, next to the prime minister's office, but were not hurt. There was no immediate indication of the reason for the attack in a country plagued by a separatist revolt in the disputed state of Kashmir, intermittent political unrest in the rugged northeast and the south and occasional religious unrest. Eyewitnesses say the raid was carried out by five terrorists, four of whom were killed in a shootout with security guards. Doctors at a nearby hospital said at least six guards were killed and 14 seriously injured. The fate of the fifth attacker was not known. Witnesses heard gunfire from the building for at least an hour after the attack began about 11:45 a.m. (0615 GMT), soon after both houses of parliament were adjourned for the day. Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee's office at first said he was in the complex, but officials later said he had not yet arrived when the shooting started and had since been taken to a safe location under heavy guard. Hundreds of troops in full battle gear took up position around the parliament, sealing off the area as security forces throughout Delhi were put on red alert. Authorities fear there are several more casualties in the building and dozens of stretchers were being readied at a nearby hospital, witnesses said. All streets leading to the parliamentary complex, home to both houses of parliament and almost 800 MPs, were closed. It is the first time such an attack has been launched on the heavily guarded parliamentary complex. On October 1, 38 people were killed in a suicide-bomb attack on the state assembly in the troubled state of Jammu and Kashmir in India's far north. A Pakistan-based militant group first claimed responsibility for that attack, but later denied having carried it out. Sikh separatists assassinated prime minister Indira Gandhi in 1984. A Tamil suicide bomber killed her son, Rajiv Gandhi, who also served as prime minister, in 1991.

A Palestinian man identified as Ahmad Muhammed al-Daneasy, 26, was killed in the Ramallah attack, security officials said. In Gaza, Palestinian Health Ministry officials said a woman named Hayat al-Haitham, 40, was not wounded but died of shock. Forty people were hurt in Gaza, officials added. The Israeli strikes were in retaliation for Palestinian attacks on Wednesday which killed ten Israelis and wounded thirty. During Wednesday's attacks, Palestinians set off a bomb and opened fire on a bus and several cars in the West Bank, at the same time as two Palestinian suicide bombers blew themselves up next to Israeli cars in Gaza. In Jerusalem, Israel increased security in the city's crowded areas after reports that Islamic militants were to carry out further attacks against Israeli targets. CLIP 065 : MIDEAST R; Source: GBRTV; ;VRS;;13-DEC-2001;Audio: NATURAL;Language: ; STORY: Israel severed ties with Palestinian President Yasser Arafat on Thursday (December 13) and struck Palestinian targets after militants killed 10 Israelis in violence that threatened to wreck a U.S. envoy's peace mission. Israeli forces advanced to within 100 metres (yards) of Arafat's headquarters in the West Bank city of Ramallah after Israel, which has long ruled out negotiations under fire, said the Palestinian leader was not a partner for peace. Israeli warplanes carried out more than a dozen strikes in the West Bank and Gaza after Palestinian militants ambushed a bus with a roadside bomb and grenades and machineguns near the Jewish settlement of Immanuel in the West Bank on Wednesday. Ten Israelis and one of the attackers were killed. Many of the Israeli dead were settlers, whom militants consider legitimate targets as occupiers of Palestinian lands. The al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, an armed organisation linked to Arafat's Fatah group, claimed responsibility for the bus attack and said it was in revenge for recent deadly assaults by Israeli forces. But the Islamic resistance group Hamas said one of its members was also among the gunmen. In Gaza, two suicide bombers blew themselves up in a Jewish settlement bloc, wounding three people. Hamas claimed responsibility, saying it was in revenge for Israel's killing of four militants in a helicopter missile strike in southern Gaza on Tuesday night. The dramatic surge in violence dealt another blow to the two-week-old mission of U.S. envoy Anthony Zinni to secure an end to nearly 15 months of Israeli-Palestinian bloodshed. Since Zinni's arrival in the region, 44 Israelis and 21 Palestinians have been killed. U.S. diplomatic sources said the former Marine Corps general would not abandon his quest. After the bus ambush, Arafat took the unprecedented step of ordering the closure of all offices and institutions of Hamas and Islamic Jihad, the groups behind dozens of suicide attacks inside Israel. But Israel said it blamed Arafat "for not reining in these terrorists" and the United States repeated its calls for the Palestinian leader to do more to end the wave of militant attacks that have drawn swift Israeli retaliation. As the security cabinet met, Israeli F-16s pounded the largest security installation in the Gaza Strip and other targets in a wave of raids that lasted hours. They attacked Gaza International Airport, a symbol of Palestinian aspirations for statehood, and an installation in the West Bank city of Nablus which Israel described as a weapons factory. Israeli helicopters fired missiles at a Voice of Palestine transmission mast in Ramallah, near Arafat's headquarters. Officials said he was in the office at the time. Israeli tanks demolished several positions held by Arafat's elite Force-17 and National Security Forces in Ramallah and troops seized five of six entry points into the city and the Voice of Palestine compound, witnesses said.

Israeli troops detonated explosives around the base of the main transmitter of the Palestinian Authority's radio station in Ramallah destroying the antenna and knocking the station off the air. A crowd gathered to watch as the troops prepared to demolish the radio tower. Israeli soldiers tried to force back foreign television crews who had gathered to film the event and a tear gas cannister was fired into the centre of the crowd. People fled in panic and a number of foreign cameramen were overcome by tear gas fumes. Bulldozers destroyed much of a nearby broadcasting building. The Director General of the Radio station, Bassem Abu Sumayeh, said the action was an attack on freedom of speech and a disgrace in a country that claimed to be a democracy. Meanwhile Israeli tanks positioned themselves around Yasser Arafat's headquarters with, Palestinian sources claimed, their gun barrels aimed at his Ramallah base. Israeli troops also entered Ramallah at three points. Brig. Gen. Ron Kitrey said Israeli troops were digging in around that town and others as counter-terror measures.

FERNANDES WALKS AWAY STORY: A group of armed men opened fire in India's parliament complex on Thursday (December 13), killing several people in an unprecedented attack on the seat of government in the world's largest democracy. Several ministers were in the building, next to the prime minister's office, but were not hurt. There was no immediate indication of the reason for the attack in a country plagued by a separatist revolt in the disputed state of Kashmir, intermittent political unrest in the rugged northeast and the south and occasional religious unrest. Eyewitnesses say the raid was carried out by five terrorists, four of whom were killed in a shootout with security guards. Doctors at a nearby hospital said at least six guards were killed and 14 seriously injured. The fate of the fifth attacker was not known. Witnesses heard gunfire from the building for at least an hour after the attack began about 11:45 a.m. (0615 GMT), soon after both houses of parliament were adjourned for the day. Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee's office at first said he was in the complex, but officials later said he had not yet arrived when the shooting started and had since been taken to a safe location under heavy guard. Hundreds of troops in full battle gear took up position around the parliament, sealing off the area as security forces throughout Delhi were put on red alert. Authorities fear there are several more casualties in the building and dozens of stretchers were being readied at a nearby hospital, witnesses said. All streets leading to the parliamentary complex, home to both houses of parliament and almost 800 MPs, were closed. It is the first time such an attack has been launched on the heavily guarded parliamentary complex. On October 1, 38 people were killed in a suicide-bomb attack on the state assembly in the troubled state of Jammu and Kashmir in India's far north. A Pakistan-based militant group first claimed responsibility for that attack, but later denied having carried it out. Sikh separatists assassinated prime minister Indira Gandhi in 1984. A Tamil suicide bomber killed her son, Rajiv Gandhi, who also served as prime minister, in 1991.

A Palestinian man identified as Ahmad Muhammed al-Daneasy, 26, was killed in the Ramallah attack, security officials said. In Gaza, Palestinian Health Ministry officials said a woman named Hayat al-Haitham, 40, was not wounded but died of shock. Forty people were hurt in Gaza, officials added. The Israeli strikes were in retaliation for Palestinian attacks on Wednesday which killed ten Israelis and wounded thirty. During Wednesday's attacks, Palestinians set off a bomb and opened fire on a bus and several cars in the West Bank, at the same time as two Palestinian suicide bombers blew themselves up next to Israeli cars in Gaza. In Jerusalem, Israel increased security in the city's crowded areas after reports that Islamic militants were to carry out further attacks against Israeli targets. CLIP 065 : MIDEAST R; Source: GBRTV; ;VRS;;13-DEC-2001;Audio: NATURAL;Language: ; STORY: Israel severed ties with Palestinian President Yasser Arafat on Thursday (December 13) and struck Palestinian targets after militants killed 10 Israelis in violence that threatened to wreck a U.S. envoy's peace mission. Israeli forces advanced to within 100 metres (yards) of Arafat's headquarters in the West Bank city of Ramallah after Israel, which has long ruled out negotiations under fire, said the Palestinian leader was not a partner for peace. Israeli warplanes carried out more than a dozen strikes in the West Bank and Gaza after Palestinian militants ambushed a bus with a roadside bomb and grenades and machineguns near the Jewish settlement of Immanuel in the West Bank on Wednesday. Ten Israelis and one of the attackers were killed. Many of the Israeli dead were settlers, whom militants consider legitimate targets as occupiers of Palestinian lands. The al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, an armed organisation linked to Arafat's Fatah group, claimed responsibility for the bus attack and said it was in revenge for recent deadly assaults by Israeli forces. But the Islamic resistance group Hamas said one of its members was also among the gunmen. In Gaza, two suicide bombers blew themselves up in a Jewish settlement bloc, wounding three people. Hamas claimed responsibility, saying it was in revenge for Israel's killing of four militants in a helicopter missile strike in southern Gaza on Tuesday night. The dramatic surge in violence dealt another blow to the two-week-old mission of U.S. envoy Anthony Zinni to secure an end to nearly 15 months of Israeli-Palestinian bloodshed. Since Zinni's arrival in the region, 44 Israelis and 21 Palestinians have been killed. U.S. diplomatic sources said the former Marine Corps general would not abandon his quest. After the bus ambush, Arafat took the unprecedented step of ordering the closure of all offices and institutions of Hamas and Islamic Jihad, the groups behind dozens of suicide attacks inside Israel. But Israel said it blamed Arafat "for not reining in these terrorists" and the United States repeated its calls for the Palestinian leader to do more to end the wave of militant attacks that have drawn swift Israeli retaliation. As the security cabinet met, Israeli F-16s pounded the largest security installation in the Gaza Strip and other targets in a wave of raids that lasted hours. They attacked Gaza International Airport, a symbol of Palestinian aspirations for statehood, and an installation in the West Bank city of Nablus which Israel described as a weapons factory. Israeli helicopters fired missiles at a Voice of Palestine transmission mast in Ramallah, near Arafat's headquarters. Officials said he was in the office at the time. Israeli tanks demolished several positions held by Arafat's elite Force-17 and National Security Forces in Ramallah and troops seized five of six entry points into the city and the Voice of Palestine compound, witnesses said.

FERNANDES WALKS AWAY STORY: A group of armed men opened fire in India's parliament complex on Thursday (December 13), killing several people in an unprecedented attack on the seat of government in the world's largest democracy. Several ministers were in the building, next to the prime minister's office, but were not hurt. There was no immediate indication of the reason for the attack in a country plagued by a separatist revolt in the disputed state of Kashmir, intermittent political unrest in the rugged northeast and the south and occasional religious unrest. Eyewitnesses say the raid was carried out by five terrorists, four of whom were killed in a shootout with security guards. Doctors at a nearby hospital said at least six guards were killed and 14 seriously injured. The fate of the fifth attacker was not known. Witnesses heard gunfire from the building for at least an hour after the attack began about 11:45 a.m. (0615 GMT), soon after both houses of parliament were adjourned for the day. Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee's office at first said he was in the complex, but officials later said he had not yet arrived when the shooting started and had since been taken to a safe location under heavy guard. Hundreds of troops in full battle gear took up position around the parliament, sealing off the area as security forces throughout Delhi were put on red alert. Authorities fear there are several more casualties in the building and dozens of stretchers were being readied at a nearby hospital, witnesses said. All streets leading to the parliamentary complex, home to both houses of parliament and almost 800 MPs, were closed. It is the first time such an attack has been launched on the heavily guarded parliamentary complex. On October 1, 38 people were killed in a suicide-bomb attack on the state assembly in the troubled state of Jammu and Kashmir in India's far north. A Pakistan-based militant group first claimed responsibility for that attack, but later denied having carried it out. Sikh separatists assassinated prime minister Indira Gandhi in 1984. A Tamil suicide bomber killed her son, Rajiv Gandhi, who also served as prime minister, in 1991.

VARIOUS OF POLICE WITH THE SECRETARY OF THE ECONOMY STORY: Argentines took to the streets of Buenos Aires on Wednesday (December 12) in yet another series of protests that have intensified in the country by workers struggling with economic uncertainty as the government buys time with its restrictive regulations. With the economy approaching a 20 percent unemployment rate, workers fortunate enough to have a job are holding fast to them. But civil employees especially are concerned the government won't have the money to finance its payroll. Half-naked protesters marched down the street with signs reading "They've left us naked." Priest and leftist leader Father Luis Farnello says the people feel victimized. "What is happening in Argentina today is inadmissible and very sad," said Farnello. "It is the dictatorship of the financiers, in which the people are marginalized and killed. It is a death culture. " Although the economic instability has sparked protests, Argentine President Fernando de la Rua claims the rules may save the country from a dreaded debt default or devaluation of its peso currency and lashed out at the protesters. "These strikes are needless, unjustified, because they have a purely political purpose," said de la Rua "And those that organize them should think the nation needs a respite to overcome these difficulties, without opening up controversy or paralysing the country, How are we going to get out of this, if not with dialogue, and not by analysing the effects but rather the causes?" De la Rua is betting that the economic restrictions will buy the government time to rally Congressional support for its 2002 budget which is said to be a condition for needed cash from the International Monetary Fund.

FERNANDES WALKS AWAY STORY: A group of armed men opened fire in India's parliament complex on Thursday (December 13), killing several people in an unprecedented attack on the seat of government in the world's largest democracy. Several ministers were in the building, next to the prime minister's office, but were not hurt. There was no immediate indication of the reason for the attack in a country plagued by a separatist revolt in the disputed state of Kashmir, intermittent political unrest in the rugged northeast and the south and occasional religious unrest. Eyewitnesses say the raid was carried out by five terrorists, four of whom were killed in a shootout with security guards. Doctors at a nearby hospital said at least six guards were killed and 14 seriously injured. The fate of the fifth attacker was not known. Witnesses heard gunfire from the building for at least an hour after the attack began about 11:45 a.m. (0615 GMT), soon after both houses of parliament were adjourned for the day. Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee's office at first said he was in the complex, but officials later said he had not yet arrived when the shooting started and had since been taken to a safe location under heavy guard. Hundreds of troops in full battle gear took up position around the parliament, sealing off the area as security forces throughout Delhi were put on red alert. Authorities fear there are several more casualties in the building and dozens of stretchers were being readied at a nearby hospital, witnesses said. All streets leading to the parliamentary complex, home to both houses of parliament and almost 800 MPs, were closed. It is the first time such an attack has been launched on the heavily guarded parliamentary complex. On October 1, 38 people were killed in a suicide-bomb attack on the state assembly in the troubled state of Jammu and Kashmir in India's far north. A Pakistan-based militant group first claimed responsibility for that attack, but later denied having carried it out. Sikh separatists assassinated prime minister Indira Gandhi in 1984. A Tamil suicide bomber killed her son, Rajiv Gandhi, who also served as prime minister, in 1991.

A Palestinian man identified as Ahmad Muhammed al-Daneasy, 26, was killed in the Ramallah attack, security officials said. In Gaza, Palestinian Health Ministry officials said a woman named Hayat al-Haitham, 40, was not wounded but died of shock. Forty people were hurt in Gaza, officials added. The Israeli strikes were in retaliation for Palestinian attacks on Wednesday which killed ten Israelis and wounded thirty. During Wednesday's attacks, Palestinians set off a bomb and opened fire on a bus and several cars in the West Bank, at the same time as two Palestinian suicide bombers blew themselves up next to Israeli cars in Gaza. In Jerusalem, Israel increased security in the city's crowded areas after reports that Islamic militants were to carry out further attacks against Israeli targets. CLIP 065 : MIDEAST R; Source: GBRTV; ;VRS;;13-DEC-2001;Audio: NATURAL;Language: ; STORY: Israel severed ties with Palestinian President Yasser Arafat on Thursday (December 13) and struck Palestinian targets after militants killed 10 Israelis in violence that threatened to wreck a U.S. envoy's peace mission. Israeli forces advanced to within 100 metres (yards) of Arafat's headquarters in the West Bank city of Ramallah after Israel, which has long ruled out negotiations under fire, said the Palestinian leader was not a partner for peace. Israeli warplanes carried out more than a dozen strikes in the West Bank and Gaza after Palestinian militants ambushed a bus with a roadside bomb and grenades and machineguns near the Jewish settlement of Immanuel in the West Bank on Wednesday. Ten Israelis and one of the attackers were killed. Many of the Israeli dead were settlers, whom militants consider legitimate targets as occupiers of Palestinian lands. The al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, an armed organisation linked to Arafat's Fatah group, claimed responsibility for the bus attack and said it was in revenge for recent deadly assaults by Israeli forces. But the Islamic resistance group Hamas said one of its members was also among the gunmen. In Gaza, two suicide bombers blew themselves up in a Jewish settlement bloc, wounding three people. Hamas claimed responsibility, saying it was in revenge for Israel's killing of four militants in a helicopter missile strike in southern Gaza on Tuesday night. The dramatic surge in violence dealt another blow to the two-week-old mission of U.S. envoy Anthony Zinni to secure an end to nearly 15 months of Israeli-Palestinian bloodshed. Since Zinni's arrival in the region, 44 Israelis and 21 Palestinians have been killed. U.S. diplomatic sources said the former Marine Corps general would not abandon his quest. After the bus ambush, Arafat took the unprecedented step of ordering the closure of all offices and institutions of Hamas and Islamic Jihad, the groups behind dozens of suicide attacks inside Israel. But Israel said it blamed Arafat "for not reining in these terrorists" and the United States repeated its calls for the Palestinian leader to do more to end the wave of militant attacks that have drawn swift Israeli retaliation. As the security cabinet met, Israeli F-16s pounded the largest security installation in the Gaza Strip and other targets in a wave of raids that lasted hours. They attacked Gaza International Airport, a symbol of Palestinian aspirations for statehood, and an installation in the West Bank city of Nablus which Israel described as a weapons factory. Israeli helicopters fired missiles at a Voice of Palestine transmission mast in Ramallah, near Arafat's headquarters. Officials said he was in the office at the time. Israeli tanks demolished several positions held by Arafat's elite Force-17 and National Security Forces in Ramallah and troops seized five of six entry points into the city and the Voice of Palestine compound, witnesses said.

Israeli troops detonated explosives around the base of the main transmitter of the Palestinian Authority's radio station in Ramallah destroying the antenna and knocking the station off the air. A crowd gathered to watch as the troops prepared to demolish the radio tower. Israeli soldiers tried to force back foreign television crews who had gathered to film the event and a tear gas cannister was fired into the centre of the crowd. People fled in panic and a number of foreign cameramen were overcome by tear gas fumes. Bulldozers destroyed much of a nearby broadcasting building. The Director General of the Radio station, Bassem Abu Sumayeh, said the action was an attack on freedom of speech and a disgrace in a country that claimed to be a democracy. Meanwhile Israeli tanks positioned themselves around Yasser Arafat's headquarters with, Palestinian sources claimed, their gun barrels aimed at his Ramallah base. Israeli troops also entered Ramallah at three points. Brig. Gen. Ron Kitrey said Israeli troops were digging in around that town and others as counter-terror measures.

In Gaza, Palestinian Health Ministry officials said a woman named Hayat al-Haitham, 40, was not wounded but died of shock. Forty people were hurt in Gaza, officials added. The Israeli strikes were in retaliation for Palestinian attacks on Wednesday which killed ten Israelis and wounded thirty. During Wednesday's attacks, Palestinians set off a bomb and opened fire on a bus and several cars in the West Bank, at the same time as two Palestinian suicide bombers blew themselves up next to Israeli cars in Gaza. In Jerusalem, Israel increased security in the city's crowded areas after reports that Islamic militants were to carry out further attacks against Israeli targets. CLIP 065 : MIDEAST R; Source: GBRTV; ;VRS;;13-DEC-2001;Audio: NATURAL;Language: ; STORY: Israel severed ties with Palestinian President Yasser Arafat on Thursday (December 13) and struck Palestinian targets after militants killed 10 Israelis in violence that threatened to wreck a U.S. envoy's peace mission. Israeli forces advanced to within 100 metres (yards) of Arafat's headquarters in the West Bank city of Ramallah after Israel, which has long ruled out negotiations under fire, said the Palestinian leader was not a partner for peace. Israeli warplanes carried out more than a dozen strikes in the West Bank and Gaza after Palestinian militants ambushed a bus with a roadside bomb and grenades and machineguns near the Jewish settlement of Immanuel in the West Bank on Wednesday. Ten Israelis and one of the attackers were killed. Many of the Israeli dead were settlers, whom militants consider legitimate targets as occupiers of Palestinian lands. The al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, an armed organisation linked to Arafat's Fatah group, claimed responsibility for the bus attack and said it was in revenge for recent deadly assaults by Israeli forces. But the Islamic resistance group Hamas said one of its members was also among the gunmen. In Gaza, two suicide bombers blew themselves up in a Jewish settlement bloc, wounding three people. Hamas claimed responsibility, saying it was in revenge for Israel's killing of four militants in a helicopter missile strike in southern Gaza on Tuesday night. The dramatic surge in violence dealt another blow to the two-week-old mission of U.S. envoy Anthony Zinni to secure an end to nearly 15 months of Israeli-Palestinian bloodshed. Since Zinni's arrival in the region, 44 Israelis and 21 Palestinians have been killed. U.S. diplomatic sources said the former Marine Corps general would not abandon his quest. After the bus ambush, Arafat took the unprecedented step of ordering the closure of all offices and institutions of Hamas and Islamic Jihad, the groups behind dozens of suicide attacks inside Israel. But Israel said it blamed Arafat "for not reining in these terrorists" and the United States repeated its calls for the Palestinian leader to do more to end the wave of militant attacks that have drawn swift Israeli retaliation. As the security cabinet met, Israeli F-16s pounded the largest security installation in the Gaza Strip and other targets in a wave of raids that lasted hours. They attacked Gaza International Airport, a symbol of Palestinian aspirations for statehood, and an installation in the West Bank city of Nablus which Israel described as a weapons factory. Israeli helicopters fired missiles at a Voice of Palestine transmission mast in Ramallah, near Arafat's headquarters. Officials said he was in the office at the time. Israeli tanks demolished several positions held by Arafat's elite Force-17 and National Security Forces in Ramallah and troops seized five of six entry points into the city and the Voice of Palestine compound, witnesses said.

Israeli troops detonated explosives around the base of the main transmitter of the Palestinian Authority's radio station in Ramallah destroying the antenna and knocking the station off the air. A crowd gathered to watch as the troops prepared to demolish the radio tower. Israeli soldiers tried to force back foreign television crews who had gathered to film the event and a tear gas cannister was fired into the centre of the crowd. People fled in panic and a number of foreign cameramen were overcome by tear gas fumes. Bulldozers destroyed much of a nearby broadcasting building. The Director General of the Radio station, Bassem Abu Sumayeh, said the action was an attack on freedom of speech and a disgrace in a country that claimed to be a democracy. Meanwhile Israeli tanks positioned themselves around Yasser Arafat's headquarters with, Palestinian sources claimed, their gun barrels aimed at his Ramallah base. Israeli troops also entered Ramallah at three points. Brig. Gen. Ron Kitrey said Israeli troops were digging in around that town and others as counter-terror measures.

FERNANDES WALKS AWAY STORY: A group of armed men opened fire in India's parliament complex on Thursday (December 13), killing several people in an unprecedented attack on the seat of government in the world's largest democracy. Several ministers were in the building, next to the prime minister's office, but were not hurt. There was no immediate indication of the reason for the attack in a country plagued by a separatist revolt in the disputed state of Kashmir, intermittent political unrest in the rugged northeast and the south and occasional religious unrest. Eyewitnesses say the raid was carried out by five terrorists, four of whom were killed in a shootout with security guards. Doctors at a nearby hospital said at least six guards were killed and 14 seriously injured. The fate of the fifth attacker was not known. Witnesses heard gunfire from the building for at least an hour after the attack began about 11:45 a.m. (0615 GMT), soon after both houses of parliament were adjourned for the day. Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee's office at first said he was in the complex, but officials later said he had not yet arrived when the shooting started and had since been taken to a safe location under heavy guard. Hundreds of troops in full battle gear took up position around the parliament, sealing off the area as security forces throughout Delhi were put on red alert. Authorities fear there are several more casualties in the building and dozens of stretchers were being readied at a nearby hospital, witnesses said. All streets leading to the parliamentary complex, home to both houses of parliament and almost 800 MPs, were closed. It is the first time such an attack has been launched on the heavily guarded parliamentary complex. On October 1, 38 people were killed in a suicide-bomb attack on the state assembly in the troubled state of Jammu and Kashmir in India's far north. A Pakistan-based militant group first claimed responsibility for that attack, but later denied having carried it out. Sikh separatists assassinated prime minister Indira Gandhi in 1984. A Tamil suicide bomber killed her son, Rajiv Gandhi, who also served as prime minister, in 1991.

VARIOUS OF POLICE WITH THE SECRETARY OF THE ECONOMY STORY: Argentines took to the streets of Buenos Aires on Wednesday (December 12) in yet another series of protests that have intensified in the country by workers struggling with economic uncertainty as the government buys time with its restrictive regulations. With the economy approaching a 20 percent unemployment rate, workers fortunate enough to have a job are holding fast to them. But civil employees especially are concerned the government won't have the money to finance its payroll. Half-naked protesters marched down the street with signs reading "They've left us naked." Priest and leftist leader Father Luis Farnello says the people feel victimized. "What is happening in Argentina today is inadmissible and very sad," said Farnello. "It is the dictatorship of the financiers, in which the people are marginalized and killed. It is a death culture. " Although the economic instability has sparked protests, Argentine President Fernando de la Rua claims the rules may save the country from a dreaded debt default or devaluation of its peso currency and lashed out at the protesters. "These strikes are needless, unjustified, because they have a purely political purpose," said de la Rua "And those that organize them should think the nation needs a respite to overcome these difficulties, without opening up controversy or paralysing the country, How are we going to get out of this, if not with dialogue, and not by analysing the effects but rather the causes?" De la Rua is betting that the economic restrictions will buy the government time to rally Congressional support for its 2002 budget which is said to be a condition for needed cash from the International Monetary Fund.

Wide shot, soldiers and bystanders at scene STORYLINE: Israeli soldiers fired tear gas into a crowd of Palestinians and foreign journalists filming the destruction of the Palestinian radio antenna in the West Bank city of Ramallah on Thursday. Israeli troops detonated explosives around the base of the main transmitter of the Palestinian Authority's radio station in Ramallah destroying the antenna and knocking the station off the air. A crowd gathered to watch as the troops prepared to demolish the radio tower. Israeli soldiers tried to force back foreign television crews who had gathered to film the event and a tear gas cannister was fired into the centre of the crowd. People fled in panic and a number of foreign cameramen were overcome by tear gas fumes. Bulldozers destroyed much of a nearby broadcasting building. The Director General of the Radio station, Bassem Abu Sumayeh, said the action was an attack on freedom of speech and a disgrace in a country that claimed to be a democracy. Meanwhile Israeli tanks positioned themselves around Yasser Arafat's headquarters with, Palestinian sources claimed, their gun barrels aimed at his Ramallah base. Israeli troops also entered Ramallah at three points. Brig. Gen. Ron Kitrey said Israeli troops were digging in around that town and others as counter-terror measures.

FERNANDES WALKS AWAY STORY: A group of armed men opened fire in India's parliament complex on Thursday (December 13), killing several people in an unprecedented attack on the seat of government in the world's largest democracy. Several ministers were in the building, next to the prime minister's office, but were not hurt. There was no immediate indication of the reason for the attack in a country plagued by a separatist revolt in the disputed state of Kashmir, intermittent political unrest in the rugged northeast and the south and occasional religious unrest. Eyewitnesses say the raid was carried out by five terrorists, four of whom were killed in a shootout with security guards. Doctors at a nearby hospital said at least six guards were killed and 14 seriously injured. The fate of the fifth attacker was not known. Witnesses heard gunfire from the building for at least an hour after the attack began about 11:45 a.m. (0615 GMT), soon after both houses of parliament were adjourned for the day. Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee's office at first said he was in the complex, but officials later said he had not yet arrived when the shooting started and had since been taken to a safe location under heavy guard. Hundreds of troops in full battle gear took up position around the parliament, sealing off the area as security forces throughout Delhi were put on red alert. Authorities fear there are several more casualties in the building and dozens of stretchers were being readied at a nearby hospital, witnesses said. All streets leading to the parliamentary complex, home to both houses of parliament and almost 800 MPs, were closed. It is the first time such an attack has been launched on the heavily guarded parliamentary complex. On October 1, 38 people were killed in a suicide-bomb attack on the state assembly in the troubled state of Jammu and Kashmir in India's far north. A Pakistan-based militant group first claimed responsibility for that attack, but later denied having carried it out. Sikh separatists assassinated prime minister Indira Gandhi in 1984. A Tamil suicide bomber killed her son, Rajiv Gandhi, who also served as prime minister, in 1991.

VARIOUS OF WORKERS PROTESTING IN THE PLAZA DE MAYO 10. VARIOUS OF POLICE WITH THE SECRETARY OF THE ECONOMY STORY: Argentines took to the streets of Buenos Aires on Wednesday (December 12) in yet another series of protests that have intensified in the country by workers struggling with economic uncertainty as the government buys time with its restrictive regulations. With the economy approaching a 20 percent unemployment rate, workers fortunate enough to have a job are holding fast to them. But civil employees especially are concerned the government won't have the money to finance its payroll. Half-naked protesters marched down the street with signs reading "They've left us naked." Priest and leftist leader Father Luis Farnello says the people feel victimized. "What is happening in Argentina today is inadmissible and very sad," said Farnello. "It is the dictatorship of the financiers, in which the people are marginalized and killed. It is a death culture. " Although the economic instability has sparked protests, Argentine President Fernando de la Rua claims the rules may save the country from a dreaded debt default or devaluation of its peso currency and lashed out at the protesters. "These strikes are needless, unjustified, because they have a purely political purpose," said de la Rua "And those that organize them should think the nation needs a respite to overcome these difficulties, without opening up controversy or paralysing the country, How are we going to get out of this, if not with dialogue, and not by analysing the effects but rather the causes?" De la Rua is betting that the economic restrictions will buy the government time to rally Congressional support for its 2002 budget which is said to be a condition for needed cash from the International Monetary Fund.

I know I speak for everyone in expressing my sympathy to those who have been caught up in these events, and above all to the relatives and friends of those who have lost their lives. My thoughts are also with the injured, some of whom I've been able to see and talk to today. I also want to thank you and all members of the emergency services and Transport for London who are working with such care, professionalism and sensitivity often in very difficult circumstances. You have the respect of all of us as you go back to your businesses. Finally I want to express my admiration for the people of our capital city who in the aftermath of yesterday's bombings are calmly determined to resume their normal lives. That is the answer to this outrage. Sadly we in Britain have been all too familiar with acts of terror and members of my generation, especially at this end of London, know that we have been here before. But those who perpetrate these brutal acts against innocent people should know that they will not change our way of life. Atrocities such as these simply reinforce our sense of community, our humanity, our trust in the rule of law. That is the clear message from us all."

Various of South Korean troops in Afghanistan STORYLINE: South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun vowed on Saturday to make sincere efforts to win the quick release of South Koreans kidnapped by Taliban militants in Afghanistan as the Taliban threatened to kill them by midday unless Seoul removes its soldiers. The militant group in Afghanistan "should send our people home safely as soon as possible," Roh said in a brief televised statement in Seoul, adding that the hostage-taking of innocent civilian cannot be justified under any circumstances. "The Dongui and Dasan troops working in Afghanistan are noncombatants. They have worked everyday to examine hundreds of Afghan civilians and have tried to build bridges and facilities for welfare to help reconstructing of Afghanistan. These works are in the way almost finished," he added. However, Roh did not elaborate what efforts his government will make to secure the freedom of the abductees. Roh's appeal came as Taliban militants renewed a threat to kill at least 18 South Koreans, including 15 women, if Seoul did not pull out its 200 soldiers from Afghanistan. Roh also spoke with his Afghanistan counterpart Hamid Karzai and asked for cooperation to quickly win the release of South Koreans, Roh's office said. A purported Taliban spokesman said the Koreans had until noon on Saturday to withdraw their troops from Afghanistan, otherwise the Korean hostages would be killed. On Saturday he said there had been no change in those demands. Purported Taliban militants also claimed on Saturday to have killed two German hostages because their government didn't submit to Taliban demands that German troops leave Afghanistan. Qari Yousuf Ahmadi, a purported Taliban spokesman, told The Associated Press by telephone from an undisclosed location that the German and Afghan governments had not met their conditions and pulled out their troops. Ahmadi offered no proof for the claim of the killings. He said the Taliban would give further information about the two bodies later. The Afghan government, however, said one of the Germans died of a heart attack and that the second was still alive. Foreign Ministry spokesman Sultan Ahmad Baheen said he hoped the hostage would be released soon and that all efforts were being made to get him released. German Foreign Ministry spokesman Martin Jeager said a crisis team was pursuing "every clue" and was in close contact with the Afghan government. Reports of the deaths were not immediately confirmed by the German government. The two Germans and five of their Afghan colleagues were kidnapped on Wednesday while working on a dam project in central Wardak province. A day later, militants kidnapped the South Koreans riding on a bus in Ghazni. However, Ahmadi made no mention of the fate of the South Korean hostages. "Since the incident happened we launched a serious operation in the area but unfortunately we have heard that the kidnappers have said that if we continue our operations they will kill all the foreigners they have kidnapped," said Ghazni district police chief Ali Shah Ahmadzai. South Korea, meanwhile, is in contact with the Taliban to secure the release of South Koreans kidnapped in Afghanistan, a senior official said on Saturday. South Korea "is maintaining the contact" with the militant group to try to win their freedom, South Korean Foreign Ministry spokesman Cho Hee-yong told The Associated Press. He said more time is needed to get a clear picture of the situation but declined to give further details. Earlier in the day, South Korean Foreign Minister Song Min-soon said Seoul has not received any official demand from the militant group. But he reiterated Seoul's plans to withdraw noncombatant troops from Afghanistan by the end of this year as previously scheduled. The South Korean government informed parliament late last year that it would terminate its troop mission in Afghanistan and bring them home before the end of this year. Song said that 23 South Koreans were kidnapped and indicated that they were safe. It was not immediately clear why there was a discrepancy in the number of kidnapped South Koreans. Song said he had spoken by phone to his Afghan counterpart and that officials from both countries were working to secure the group's release. He said a South Korean team would leave for Afghanistan later on Saturday, and that the Afghan side had already set up a special task force to deal with the kidnapping. On Saturday, relatives of the abductees asked the government to withdraw its troops to save the lives of their loved ones. "The South Korean Government had already decided to withdraw the troops at the end of this year," said Cha Sung-min, abductee Cha Hye-jin's younger brother. "Then withdraw them right now and save the life of 20 Koreans who are valuable to their families and can't be replaced with anything else," he added. Also on Saturday, Afghanistan's foreign ministry announced it was doing whatever it could to secure the release of the South Korean hostages. "We hope that those who have kidnapped them will respect the Afghan and Islamic culture not to harm them and let them go back to their homes safe and sound," he added. In the largest-scale abduction of foreigners since the fall of the Taliban regime in 2001, the South Koreans were kidnapped at gunpoint from a bus in Ghazni province's Qarabagh district on Thursday as they travelled on the main highway from Kabul to the southern city of Kandahar. South Korea has about 200 troops serving with the 8,000-strong U.S.-led coalition.
