Iraq told the world yesterday that
all foreign hostages would be freed,
but President Bush said release of the
thousands of hostages would not
weaken American resolve to get Iraqi
troops out of Kuwait.
The releases could begin as early
as tomorrow, Iraqi officials said.
Saddam Hussein told his parlia-
ment yesterday to free all foreign
hostages in response to "positive
changes" in the Persian Gulf crisis,
and he said Iraq should apologize to
the thousands that were held.

The University released informa-
tion yesterday about the eight depu-
tized officers hired by the Depart-
ment of Public Safety and Security
(DPSS) this fall. The officers, the

certified by the state. All have acted
as DPSS security officers, and five
have worked as police officers
elsewhere in the state. Two
members of the fleet are sergeants,
and one is a captain.
Seven of the officers could not

Saddam said the reason for hold-

Saddam also said Iraq had com-
pleted its deployment in Kuwait, and
therefore, the hostages were no
