Authorities underestimate quake damage

CAIRO, Egypt (AP) - Last
week's earthquake caused greater
damage to Egypt's monuments than
previously believed, including the
rich store of pharaonic relics at
Luxor in southern Egypt, the coun-
try's top antiquities official said
yesterday.
Initial estimates placed the num-
ber of damaged monuments below
50, mainly to ancient Islamic sites in
the Cairo area. But updated figures
released yesterday showed damage
to more than 150 ancient monuments
throughout the country.
Last Monday's quake caused

cracks in some of the country's top
attractions. These include the Valley
of the Kings, the burial site of
Tutankhamun, and Queen
Hatshepsut's temple at Deir el-Bahri
in the south from the 15th century
B.C., said Ibrahim Bakr, chairperson
of Egypt's Antiquities Organization.
There is now fear that landslides
from an unstable ridge lying between
the valley and the queen's temple
could bury the monuments, Bakr
said at a news conference.
Other well-known tourist attrac-
tions that were cracked include the
Oracle Temple at Siwa Oasis near

Libya, Luxor Temple and Ramses
II's mortuary temple opposite Luxor
on the west bank of the Nile River,
he said.
The earthquake, measuring 5.9
on the Richter scale, was centered a
few miles south of Egypt's main
tourist attractions, the Sphinx and
Giza pyramids.
Felt throughout Egypt and as far
away as Jerusalem, it killed almost
550 people, injured more than 6,000
and destroyed or damaged hundreds
of buildings in Cairo alone.
Only a few stones fell from the
Giza pyramids, and Bakr said the

Sphinx apparently suffered no
damage.
But surveys now show the quake
hit other regions rich with antiqui-
ties, such as Luxor, believed earlier
to have been spared.
Bakr said Egypt lacks the exper-
tise and money to tackle repairs that
could take 20 years or more. He es-
timated the initial repair cost at $63
million and appealed for interna-
tional technical and financial help.
"These monuments belong not
only to Egypt but are a world her-
itage," Bakr said.

Kauffman added that Michigan
has a rape-shield law protecting the
survivor, unlike Texas.
"At least in Michigan, a victim
can't be cross examined on her sex-
ual history, except in special cases,"
Kauffman said.
Vikki Pike, an LSA sophomore,
expressed her anger at the jury's
view of contraceptive use in the
Texas case.
"He was going to rape her either
way," Pike said. "If she had used a
gun in order to protect herself, would

In conjunction with similar
events held across the country, The
Islamic Circle sponsored a rally for
Bosnia on the Diag Friday.
The group brought attention to
U.S. policy concerning Bosnian citi-
zens, who have been suffering from
war and ethnic cleansing at the
hands of the Serbian government for
the past eight months.
The demonstrators asked students
to sign a petition aimed at motivat-
ing politicians to help the people of
Bosnia. Some students were respon-
sive and supportive, while others
were indifferent.
"(The protesters) are a little bit
one-sided, but what they are asking
for is right. We should be willing to
listen ... we should be willing to
help," said LSA first-year student
Lisa Hassleman.
Ann Arbor resident Mike
Thompson said, "There ought to be
more rallies. Many people see
what's happening on the TV or read
it in the newspaper. Yet, they treat it
like a mugging or murder."
However, rally participants said
they are still trying to get their mes-
sage across to students.
First-year Nursing student Susan
Lubki, who took part in the rally,
said, "People don't know what's go-
ing on and they need to. So many in-
justices are occurring."

she be punished for that? Because
she's definitely being punished for
protecting herself in this way."
Vito Guerra, a Business School
senior, said he was not as certain
about the legality of the ruling.
"I don't know if the grand jury
was justified," Guerra said. "I find
rape morally disturbing. It's not
more disturbing because she had him
put on a condom. It's still rape to
me."
The survivor in this case has fled
town, but may be compelled to take
the witness stand under Texas law.
Her assailant has been jailed on bur-
glary charges, and is unable to make
the $10,000 bail. The case is set to
go to trial this week.

sophomore Fazia Salem, said, "I'm
so glad we have finally done some-
thing at this university. So many
people don't know what's going on.
Unfortunately, the awful weather
has caused a very low turnout."
The demonstrators encountered
problems publicizing the event.
Rally co-coordiator Mobeen Rab
said, "We put a lot of fliers up and
minutes later people would tear
them down. Some people put up an
article speaking out against Bosnia
in place of our fliers. This only
makes a bad situation even worse."
Students who attended the rally
expressed concern about the vandal-
ism of the fliers.
"These people should come for-
ward. They are hiding behind what
they are saying. The people holding
this rally are stating exactly what is
going on, what has been done, and
what should be done in a very fair
way," said LSA junior JanetvHeald.
Iztok Hozo, a Bosnian from
Sarajevo attending the U-M, said,
"The world is sitting idly by and
watching a genocide go on. Bosnia
is made up of Croats and Serbs who
are both Christian and Muslim. The
area of Bosnia has never fought
amongst itself. It is the Serbian
government of Serbia that is causing
all this pain. I would like people to
know that we need help to defend
ourselves and our homes."
