Hamas security checking cars STORYLINE: Hamas crushed an al-Qaida-inspired group in an hours-long standoff that came to a fiery end when a large explosion killed the radical Muslim group's leader inside his Gaza home on Saturday. The fighting was sparked by a rebellious sermon by the group's leader, and his dramatic death put an end to the greatest internal challenge to Hamas' rule since it took control of Gaza two years ago. In all, the fighting claimed 24 lives - the highest death toll in the territory since the Israel-Hamas war earlier this year. Funeral processions were carried out for both the sides on the streets of Rafah later on Saturday, where flag draped bodies were carried by crowds of people. The crackdown targeted Jund Ansar Allah, or the Soldiers of the Companions of God, one of a number of small, shadowy groups that are even more radical than Hamas. The decisive confrontation, in which 95 group members were arrested, solidified Hamas' iron rule in Gaza. The radical groups have sought to expand the Palestinians' battle beyond Israel to include the Western World as well. And in Gaza they have tried to enforce an even stricter version of Islamic law than Hamas and have attacked Internet cafes and wedding parties over behaviour they consider improper. The crackdown highlights Hamas' desire to distance itself from militants espousing al-Qaida's ideology and to appear more moderate to the West, though the United States, Israel and others consider Hamas a "terrorist" organisation. The fighting broke out late on Friday when Hamas security men surrounded a mosque in the southern Gaza town of Rafah on the Egyptian border where about 100 members of Jund Ansar Allah were holed up. Their leader, Abdel-Latif Moussa, provoked Hamas by declaring Gaza an Islamic emirate during a Friday prayer sermon and daring its leaders to invade his mosque. They did, setting off a fierce gunbattle. Flares lit up the sky and the sound of machine gun fire echoed throughout the night. Moussa escaped with some bodyguards to his home where another standoff ensued. Early Saturday, an explosives vest was detonated as Hamas was trying to convince Moussa to surrender, said Taher Nunu, a Hamas government spokesman. Hamas' Interior Minister, Fathi Hamad, told reporters that the "operation came after a lot of security research and evidence gathering, which proved that this group had been working illegally and were using weapons against the people, against the government, and had been killing a lot in different areas, so we were forced to stop it." Doctor Moaiya Hassanain of the Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza said 24 people were killed, including six Hamas police officers and an 11-year-old girl. At least 150 people were wounded, he said. Hamas confirmed one of its casualties was a high-ranking commander, Abu Jibril Shimali, whom Israel said orchestrated the capture three years ago of Sergeant Gilad Schalit, an Israeli soldier who is still being held by Hamas. Jund Ansar Allah first came to public attention in June after it claimed responsibility for a failed attempt to attack Israel from Gaza on horseback. The group claims inspiration from al-Qaida's ultraconservative brand of Islam, but no direct links have been confirmed. The group has been critical of Hamas for not imposing a more severe form of Islamic law and for maintaining a cease-fire with Israel for the past seven months. Hamas says it does not impose its religious views on others, but only seeks to set a pious example for people to follow. Hamas also maintains that its struggle is against Israel only, while the radical splinter groups call for a global jihad against the entire Western world. Israel has charged that terrorists with links to Osama bin Laden have infiltrated Gaza. Hamas has denied this, while trying to distance itself from the more radical groups. This weekend's violence marked the most serious internal opposition Hamas has faced since it seized control of Gaza and ousted its rivals in the Fatah movement in a five-day civil war in June 2007. The Gaza Strip and the West Bank are together supposed to make up a future Palestinian state, but the rival governments in the two territories - located on opposite sides of Israel - are complicating Palestinian efforts to gain independence. Fatah official Saeb Erekat was quick to comment on the developments, saying "Gaza is going down the drain in chaos and lawlessness." Hamas security blocked all roads to Rafah on Saturday and declared the town a closed military zone.

We need to abolish the death penalty in Asia. As in the countries of the European Union, where you can't even join if you still have the death penalty, we should have to do the same thing. If the death penalty were abolished, it would change the atmosphere in Asia and also have a positive knock-on effect in Central and South America, and Africa, and the rest of the world. Accordingly, the issue of the death penalty is one of the most serious issues confronting human beings, and I hope that, if possible, the Asian countries will set an example in sorting out this problem." 5.

I replied: 'If I do cooperate with you, I can continue to live but I will die in history and in people's minds. But if I do not cooperate with you, I know I will die but will live forever in people's minds and in history.' I said, 'I will choose the latter. So, do not try to persuade me, but just kill me'."

Ban and his wife Yoo Soon-taek walking up to place flowers on memorial, Ban reaching down to take incense stick STORYLINE: Human rights group Amnesty International has released footage from interviews the human rights group conducted with former South Korean President, Kim Dae-jung, back in April this year. Kim Dae-jung died at a Seoul hospital on Tuesday after battling pneumonia for weeks, officials at Severance Hospital said. He was 85. In the interviews, Kim Dae-jung tells the story of his fight for democracy and his long opposition to the death penalty. As a pro-democracy opposition lawmaker, Kim built a reputation as a passionate champion of human rights and democracy who fought against South Korea's military dictatorships. As president from 1998-2003, he was architect of the "Sunshine Policy" of reaching out to wartime rival North Korea as a way to encourage reconciliation. His efforts led to an unprecedented thaw in relations with the North and culminated in a historic North-South summit - the first on the divided peninsula - and a jubilant meeting in Pyongyang with leader Kim Jong Il in 2000. His successor, the late President Roh Moo-hyun, maintained the Sunshine Policy but Kim Dae-jung saw his work unravel with the election of conservative President Lee Myung-bak in 2007, who conditioned aid to the North on the regime's commitment to nuclear disarmament. North Korea cut off nearly all reconciliation ties last year and suspended most of the joint projects that had sprung up in the wake of warming relations, though it announced its intention this week to restore some of them, including reunions of families divided for decades after the 1950-1953 Korean War. Over the past year, as international tensions rose over Pyongyang's continued nuclear defiance, Kim rallied up until the end for Seoul to find a way to engage the North. Kim's wife Lee Hee-ho laid a flower and lit incense at a memorial to her husband inside the hospital on Tuesday. She was joined by former president and her husband's longtime rival Kim Young-sam and United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

Close Ed McMahon star on Hollywood Walk of Fame 'TONIGHT' SIDEKICK ED MCMAHON DIES AT 86 Ed McMahon, the loyal "Tonight" show sidekick who bolstered boss Johnny Carson with guffaws and a resounding "H-e-e-e-e-e-ere's Johnny!" for 30 years, died early Tuesday. He was 86. McMahon died shortly after midnight at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center surrounded by his wife, Pam, and other family members, said his publicist, Howard Bragman. McMahon broke his neck in a fall in March 2007, and battled a series of financial problems as his injuries prevented him from working. On Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood on Tuesday, workers placed flowers and a wreath bearing McMahon's name on top of his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Cameramen and reporters gathered as onlookers -- tourists and locals -- remembered McMahon. "He was a great sidekick to Johnny Carson. 'Star Search' -- a lot of stars became famous because of him," tourist Kim Ward said. "Publishers Clearing House -- he could've came to my house and said 'Hey, you're a winner! Ten million dollars!' He was just a great guy." Tom Schriber, another tourist, said: "I mean he was almost as important I think as Johnny himself in those shows. You know, the shows always began with Ed saying at some point along the line 'Here's Johnny!' A very important contribution, I think. Sorry to see him go. I understand in recent years he had fallen on hard times." McMahon and Carson had worked together for nearly five years on the game show "Who Do You Trust?" when Carson took over NBC's late-night show from Jack Paar in October 1962. McMahon played second banana on "Tonight" until Carson retired in 1992. McMahon's medical and financial problems kept him in the headlines in his last years. It was reported in June 2008 that he was facing possible foreclosure on his Beverly Hills home. By year's end, a deal was worked out allowing him to stay in his home, but legal action involving other alleged debts continued. Born Edward Leo Peter McMahon Jr. on March 6, 1923, in Detroit, McMahon grew up in Lowell, Mass. He got his start on television playing a circus clown on the 1950-51 variety series "Big Top." But the World War II Marine veteran interrupted his career to serve as a fighter pilot in Korea. McMahon and Clark also teamed up as pitchmen for American Family Publishers' sweepstakes, with their faces a familiar sight on contest entry forms and in TV commercials. McMahon was known for his ongoing commercials for Budweiser as well. Besides his wife, Pam, McMahon is survived by children Claudia, Katherine, Linda, Jeffrey and Lex. Bragman said no funeral arrangements have been made.

Trailer, 'Fight Night Round 4' SNOOP OUTBOXES MIKE TYSON -- ON AN XBOX 360 Will Smith once released a song titled "I Think I Can Beat Mike Tyson." Now another veteran rapper really has. Snoop Dogg outboxed the former heavyweight champion on Monday night -- on a video game console. Tyson is featured on the cover of Electronic Arts' new "Fight Night Round 4" for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and Snoop Dogg has an unlockable character in the game named Malice. Tyson said outside the event he was glad to make the cover, with another former champ, Muhammad Ali. "Egotistically speaking, I thought I should've been on the one previous to me. I was jealous and a little upset," Tyson said. "I'm just totally fulfilled to be on the cover now." Inside the House of Blues on Sunset Strip, Tyson faced off against Snoop in a four-round match of "Fight Night" on a big screen. The two have been friends since meeting in 1993, according to Snoop. Snoop said he was a 10-1 underdog but used his jab to knock out Tyson's character: "Fundamentals. Got him in the body. Knocked him out in the fourth round." Tyson has been resurgent in pop culture in recent months, with the release of a documentary about his life, his appearance in the nation's top movie for two straight weeks, "The Hangover," and Jamie Foxx talking about starring in a biopic about him. "I mean, it's great to see his evolution come back around and for him to get what's deserved as far as his notoriety, his respect, his love and you know credibility for who he is and what he's done for the sport of boxing, for humanity, just for people in general," Snoop said of Tyson. "His struggle is our struggle. I'm a fan of his, a friend of his. I'm just happy to see him still relevant after so many years." Tyson has faced highs and lows even in the past several weeks. He married for the third time this month, just ten days after his 4-year-old daughter died in a tragic treadmill accident. He appeared at the "Fight Night" event with his new wife, whose maiden name was Lakiha Spicer. "You know, the growth and development that he's went through," Snoop Dogg said. "Ups and downs. It's part of life. You know, a career where he's had highs and lows, a life with highs and lows. And now he's back on top again, you know. That's where he's meant to be." "Fight Night Round 4" is out this week for Xbox 360 and PS3. APTN APEX 06-23-09 2029EDT ------------------- END -- OF -- ITEM -------------------

SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Ramon Pequeno, head of anti-narcotics force of the Federal Police "Members of the Federal Police detained yesterday at the same time six alleged members of the financial structure of the Michoacan cartel of La Familia." 13. Wide of authorities at news conference STORYLINE Gunmen shot up and torched the home of a Mexican police commander on Wednesday, killing the officer, his wife and his four children, including a six-year-old boy. The interior of the house in the Gulf coast city of Veracruz was completely destroyed and its facade was riddled with bullet holes. Inside, police found the bodies of municipal police commander Jesus Antonio Romero and his family, Veracruz state Public Safety Secretary Sergio Lopez said. Police said the youngest child was a six-year-old boy and the oldest a 15-year-old girl. The motive was unclear, but the pre-dawn attack bore the hallmarks of Mexico's brutal drug cartels. Lopez said police believed the assailants set fire to the house by hurling grenades. He said neighbours reported hearing explosions. Romero was promoted a month ago to deputy operations coordinator for the Veracruz-Boca del Rio area, a hotbed of drug violence and a stronghold of the Zetas, a group of hit men aligned with the Gulf cartel. It was unclear if Romero and his family were shot dead or overcome by the fire. Mexico's drug war has claimed more than 11,000 lives since President Felipe Calderon deployed tens of thousands of soldiers and federal police nationwide to fight the cartels. Drug gangs have stepped up attacks on police and government officials, often gunning them down in front of their homes, but it is rare for their families to be targeted. In one of the boldest offensives against the government, 18 federal agents were killed earlier this month in a series of attacks in western Mexico blamed on La Familia drug cartel. Authorities say La Familia was retaliating for the arrest of one of its top members. The federal government responded by sending 5,500 federal police, soldiers and navy personnel to western Michoacan state and stepping up its offensive against La Familia, which has turned to large-scale methampthetamine production. On Wednesday, Federal Police announced the capture of six more suspected La Familia members, including a man accused of being a chief financial operator. The arrests came a day after soldiers seized almost a half-ton of crystal methamphetamine in raids on two rural drug laboratories in Michoacan. Authorities have raided at least 40 drug labs in Michoacan this year, including 19 in the last 10 days.

And we started the fight, we were first to fight." 28. Wide of Wojciechowski walking to memorial tablets at the battlefield of Mokra STORYLINE Just before dawn on September 1, 1939, Eugeniusz Kolodziejczyk, a 13-year-old Pole, stood on a train station platform in Wielun and watched as the bombs began to fall. The explosions set off a worldwide conflict that would rage for more than half a decade and leave more than 40 (m) million military personnel and civilians dead: World War II had began. As the bombs fell, Kolodziejczyk remembers running to help a small girl who was lying on a heap of rubble, her face covered in blood. "This girl who was lying several metres from here... I ran up to her after the planes passed over. I tried to pick her up, her dark hair was hanging and her face was full of blood, and her hands dropped lifelessly. I could see she was dying," Kolodziejczyk said, recalling the first few moments after the bombing. The Polish town of Wielun was the first victim of the war in Europe, even before the tiny Polish military outpost on Westerplatte, in Gdansk, some 250 miles (400 kilometres) to the north on the Baltic Sea, which was shelled by the German battleship Schleswig-Holstein just five minutes after Wielun. Westerplatte is the site of Monday's state ceremonies marking the 70th anniversary of the start of the war in Poland, to be attended by German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Russia's Prime Minister Vladimir Putin. But Wielun defends its place in history and will hold its own anniversary ceremonies with the participation of President Lech Kaczynski. Last year it nominated itself for the Nobel Peace Prize, arguing that its wartime past qualifies it to carry a message of pacifism, along with Guernica, the Spanish town in the Basque Country that was heavily bombed on market day by the German air force, with the collusion of Franco, during the Spanish Civil War, and became a symbol of war's barbarity. The attack on Wielun was a harbinger of what Poland and the rest of Europe had in store for them as the continent faced total war: some 1,200 of the town's 15,000 citizens were killed and more than 70 percent of the buildings turned to rubble. During the Nazi occupation, Poland lost some six (m) million citizens and more than half its national wealth in destroyed factories, burned down museums, libraries and villages. The country was also to be used as a base for the occupying Nazis' genocide machinery; the concentration camps Auschwitz, Majdanek, Sobibor were all located there, among others. It is not entirely clear why Germany chose Wielun, just 20 kilometres (12 miles) from the border, as its first target. But in a book published in Berlin in 1939 German Luftwaffe (Air Force) officers said they believed Polish troops were stationed in the city. "The entire Second World War was a war of total destruction. And this did actually start in Wielun. Westerplatte is the symbol of bravery, and Wielun is the symbol of annihilation of defenceless civilians," said Jan Ksiazek, head of the town's historical museum. Today, the main square is framed by low, modern houses that filled in the void left after the old, historic buildings were demolished. There are no reminders of the bombings except for the stone foundations of a 14th century church in the town centre. Despite vivid memories of wartime horror, Kolodziejczyk has a message of reconciliation: "Unfortunately it happened. But it was not the fault of the German people," he said. "It was the fault of madmen who wanted to rule the world, and they met their end the way they did," he added. At 95 years-old, Marian Wojciechowski is now the oldest surviving soldier from the 21st regiment of the Nadwislanski Lancers in the Wolynska Cavalry Brigade. He fought in the battle of Mokra, a small town between Wielun and Czestochowa, known for its famous monastery of Jasna Gora. Wojciechowski has lived in the US for nearly fifty years now, and is the only Polish veteran from the US joining ceremonies in Mokra. His regiment fought against German tanks despite poor supply lines and inferior weaponry. "We didn't have enough ammunition, we did not have enough weapons, we were not prepared at all, " Wojciechowski said. Wojciechowski's unit, the 21st regiment, received the highest Polish military award for bravery in battle, the Virtuti Militari. Wojciechowski is also a former prisoner of the Gestapo in Radom, and of the concentration camps in Auschwitz, Gross Rosen and Leitmeritz, from April 1942 to May 1945. But he says he feels no bitterness. "All the other countries were also fighting later on for freedom. And we started the fight, we were first to fight."

Various of large group of displaced people sitting on ground STORYLINE A government-appointed commission looking into Sri Lanka's civil war began public hearings on Wednesday amid international scepticism about its credibility as it has no mandate to investigate allegations that thousands of civilians died in the final months of the conflict. The United Nations says at least 7,000 civilians were killed in the last five months before the war ended in May 2009 when government forces finally crushed ethnic Tamil rebels who had been fighting for an independent state for a quarter-century. The rebels had claimed marginalisation of minority Tamils by ethnic Sinhalese-controlled governments. President Mahinda Rajapaksa appointed the commission in May, a year after the end of the war, to determine why a Norway-brokered cease-fire signed by the government and Tamil Tigers in 2002 collapsed and who was responsible. Human rights groups say the commission is aimed at deflecting calls for an international probe of alleged war crimes, including government shelling of civilians and other issues. In June, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon appointed a three-member panel to advise him on ensuring accountability for the alleged abuses during the war. Sri Lanka has refused to cooperate with the panel or issue visas for its members, saying an external panel is an infringement of the country's sovereignty. Commission Chairman C.R. de Silva said in his opening remarks on Wednesday that the time had come to "consolidate the military victory by addressing the root causes of the conflict and establish national unity and reconciliation." The commission began its hearings with presentations by the former Sri Lankan ambassador to the US, Bernard Gunatillake, and a former government peace negotiator with the Tigers. Gunatillake said that the Tigers were not sincere in peace talks that followed the 2002 cease-fire and were buying time for another war. The government has accused the rebels of having used the truce to smuggle in weapons, including a set of small airplanes, by sea, and to build berms and other defences around their stronghold in the north of the island. Gunatillake called for the immediate resettlement of tens of thousands of war-displaced civilians still living in camps and the return of private land and houses occupied by the army as important steps for long-term peace. Hearings also will be conducted in ethnic Tamil areas to allow people there to air their grievances, de Silva said. The hearings will be held in public except when witnesses ask for a closed session or when sensitive security details are discussed, he said. In addition to accusations of indiscriminate shelling, rights groups have also accused government forces of having blocked access to food and medicine for minority Tamil civilians trapped in the war. The rebels have been accused of holding civilians as human shields, killing those trying to escape the violence and forcibly recruiting children as fighters. The International Crisis Group think tank said in a report early this year that at least 30-thousand civilians could have died in the last phase of the war. It said it calculated the figure by comparing the original population of the war zone with the number who escaped the fighting. On Tuesday, a group of 57 US lawmakers wrote to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton urging her to push for an international investigation of war crimes allegedly committed by Sri Lankan government forces and the Tamil Tigers. The lawmakers said the Sri Lankan commission had a narrow scope and no mandate to investigate abuses.

Wide of military official in trailer 22. Wide of drone being moved into hangar STORYLINE Israel''s drones are an important tool in its war against Palestinian militants, military officials say, just as Palestinians see the unmanned plane as an ever-present menace. One of Israel''s most essential and controversial weapons is operated from a nondescript beige trailer topped with antennae only a short distance away from Tel Aviv - but it is a top-secret nerve centre operating Israel''s force of unmanned airplanes. One year after Israel''s devastating assault on Gaza, the Associated Press was given a rare glimpse into the arcane control room where drone operators track targets and assist ground forces, putting Israel at the forefront of this remote-controlled technology. The soldiers behind the changing face of Israel''s warfare sit removed from the battlefield, in a room that could be mistaken for a very expensive video arcade. Second Lieutenant Bar, whose last name has been omitted in line with military guidelines, is part of an elite group of Israeli soldiers in a unit that operates drones. At work, the 21-year-old plants herself in front of an array of screens, fastens a set of earphones around her head and secures her hand around a joystick. But Bar insists: "It''s not a game at all. It''s very serious." Seeking to keep its enemies in the dark, Israel says little about its drone programme. It refuses to confirm accounts from Palestinian witnesses and other observers that drones are used in deadly airstrikes, admitting only that they are used for surveillance. Second Lieutenant Bar and her colleagues station themselves in front of their computer screens and equipment 60 kilometres from the streets and sandy dunes of Gaza where the last war was mounted. The use of drones was essential to that war, which Israel dubbed Operation Cast Lead. About 1,400 Gazans were killed, more than half of them civilians including women and children - according to Palestinian and Israeli human rights researchers - in the massive Israeli aerial bombardment that opened the campaign and in the subsequent ground warfare. One group, Human Rights Watch, charged that Israeli drone pilots had fired before making sure their targets were actual threats at least six times during the Gaza war, firing missiles that killed at least 29 civilians. Israel rejected the accusations. During a mission, drone operators work in tandem with forces on the ground, warning them of obstacles in their way and pointing out enemy positions as they advance. The drone pilots watch the operation unfold on their monitors. "Everything in the army is involved with UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles)," says Second Lieutenant Bar. "I don''t think there is something in the ground force or the air force that goes out without a UAV that follows them." Israel''s was the first military to make widespread use of drones in its 1982 Lebanon invasion, according to Mark Daly, an expert on drones at Jane''s defence publications. The use of drones in conjunction with ground and air forces was seen as crucial to the Gaza conflict of 2008 because they allowed soldiers to have eyes in the air, keeping watch over nearby roofs and alleyways. Though it is assumed by outside observers that Israel''s drones have attack capability, the military will not comment on whether that is true. The accuracy of drone surveillance and intelligence-gathering abilities has been challenged in past missions. The Israeli military said a video filmed by an unmanned drone in southern Lebanon in October showed Hezbollah militants scampering to retrieve rockets from the site of an explosion. Hezbollah said what appeared to be rockets was debris from the blast. In harsher accusations, international and Palestinian human rights groups have accused and lambasted Israel for using drones in strikes that killed civilians in Gaza. Drones also interfere with daily life of Palestinians, charges Issam Younis, the head of Mezan, a Gaza-based human rights group. "The killer is there every minute in the sky of Gaza," said Younis. "This has also resulted in a state of fear amongst the community, especially children who live in panic." The planes can remain in the air for up to 40 hours - that''s their most important asset. With no tired pilot to ground, the operators rotate while the drone remains in the air. Only one drone was downed during the war, according to a lieutenant, who operates takeoffs and landings, and it was felled accidentally by Israeli helicopter fire. While recognising the high civilian casualties wrought by the war, military analyst Shlomo Brom said the contribution of unmanned planes to Israel''s achievements in Gaza were "enormous." Drones "enabled the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) to acquire real-time intelligence and to be capable of differentiating in many cases between the fighting forces of Hamas and the civilians," said Brom, a former Israeli general and a security expert at the Institute for National Security Studies. Even after the Gaza fighting, Israel continues to rely on drones for its security. Second Lieutenant Bar says she has participated in missions where drones identify Gazan rocket launchers, alerting a fighter plane to their location. Most recently, a new military plan calls for the deployment of unmanned spy drones to photograph illegal construction in West Bank settlements to enforce a 10-month construction slowdown.

Mexico Calderon - President says jobs, poverty now top 2 priorities; fighting crime close third

Various of military troops arriving in convoy at Ciudad Juarez STORYLINE Mexican President Felipe Calderon said on Wednesday that creating jobs and reducing poverty were now his top two priorities, with the fight against crime falling to third place in his list of objectives for 2010. The fight against violent drug cartels has been the most prominent focus in the first half of Calderon''s six year-term, with drug-related violence costing over 15,000 lives since he took office. In a televised speech on Wednesday, Calderon listed creating jobs and fighting poverty as the first and second most important objectives for 2010. "Creating jobs, because that is the most important thing for a family to get ahead in life," said Calderon, whose 2006 election campaign cast him as the jobs president, only to see the drug war and the economic recession overshadow that goal. Calderon promised major funding for roads, seaports and airports in a bid to create jobs. The latest available figures showed nationwide unemployment at 5.26 percent last November. But that number may be an underestimate as most of Mexico has no welfare system and unemployed people usually seek to eke out a living as street vendors or in other occupations outside the official system. The country''s economy grew 2.9 percent in the third quarter over the previous one, but officials estimate Mexico''s GDP (Gross Domestic Product) will have fallen about 7 percent in 2009. The country''s Treasury Department said it expects the economy to grow by around 3 percent in 2010. Calderon said he will fight poverty by spending more money to build schools and hospitals, and to fund programmes for poor families. A government published report in July showed that extreme poverty in Mexico, defined as people who cannot buy enough food to eat, rose from 13.8 (m) million in 2006 to 19.5 (m) million in 2008, in a country of almost 107 (m) million inhabitants. A broader poverty definition, including families who could not meet housing, transport, education and other normal costs, reached 50.6 (m) million, up from 42.6 (m) million in 2006. But Calderon also made it clear he was not giving up the fight against crime. "I know that in many parts of Mexico, criminals continue to harass, threaten and practise extortion against many Mexican families. For that reason, we will continue to combat all criminal groups in the country, without distinction," he said.

Pakistani students are very aware that this is the purpose of our rally." 14. Wide pan right of protest STORYLINE: More than a thousand people, including many school pupils, took to the streets of Islamabad on Wednesday, protesting against perceived US involvement in Pakistan's affairs. The protest was organised by the student wing of Jamat-e-Islami, a Pakistani religious political party. Protesters waved Pakistani and Jamat-e-Islami flags and banners which read "World terrorist America." They also chanted anti-American slogans, including "Crush, crush USA!" as well as "Fighting is the only way to deal with America!" One man said that, today, the students were fighting by marching in the streets, but they could in the future fight with rocket launchers against America. Anti-American sentiment is pervasive throughout Pakistan, with suspected US missile strikes on the northwest border with Afghanistan fuelling anger. American officials generally do not acknowledge the unpopular attacks. The Pakistani government publicly condemns the US strikes as violations of its sovereignty, but many analysts believe the two countries have a secret deal allowing them. American security and government leaders have frequently visited Pakistan in recent weeks, including a recent trip by US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, to urge the government to do more against militants on its side of the border blamed for violence inside Afghanistan. But the government has been coming under increasing domestic pressure not to be seen simply taking orders from the United States and to give the impression it has a say in any new policy in neighbouring Afghanistan.

STORYLINE: Scattered clashes erupted on Friday in Jerusalem between Israeli police and Muslim protesters, following days of tension around the most sacred Muslim and Jewish site in the Holy Land. The unrest appears to have been sparked by rumours among Palestinians about a possible attempt by Jewish extremists to harm the Islamic holy sites in the Old City compound known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary. Brief clashes were reported on Friday with stone-throwing youths being chased by Israeli police forces. Similar incidents occurred in Qalandiya on the West Bank. Earlier in the day, police mobilised reinforcements from across the country in an attempt to prevent any potential trouble. Officers also restricted access to prayers at the Al-Aqsa mosque to men aged over 55. Israel and the Palestinians both lay claim to Jerusalem, with Israel insisting it will retain control of the whole city, including the eastern sector it captured and annexed in 1967. The Palestinians want east Jerusalem, with its major Jewish, Muslim and Christian holy sites, for their future capital. Like the rest of the international community, they do not recognise the Israeli annexation. They also regard the Jewish neighbourhoods, which ring east Jerusalem, as settlements, which Israel does not. Jerusalem's 220-thousand Arabs and 550-thousand Jews live in an uneasy coexistence that frequently leads to tension and outbursts of conflict and violence. A perceived Israeli aggressiveness aimed specifically at the Al Aqsa mosque helped to trigger a series of protests across the region on Friday. Marches took place in Jebaliya, Khan Younis, Hebron, Tulkarem and in Jordan, where demonstrators burnt an Israeli flag. In Amman, protesters also chanted slogans against the Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, also head of the Fatah movement in charge of the Palestinian territory of West Bank. Abbas has been weakened by public protests against his decision not to pursue a UN report that said Israel and Hamas, the Islamist movement in control of Gaza, committed war crimes in the Gaza fighting earlier this year. Some criticise Abbas for buckling to Israeli and US pressure on the 575-page report which accused Israel of using disproportionate force and failing to protect civilians. The report also referred to Hamas' firing of rockets at civilian areas in southern Israel as a war crime.
