The problem, said one con-

with avowed homosexuals if the
ban is overturned after six months.
The administration was work-

block Republican plans for an
early vote preserving the ban. An
intense effort was under way to
win the support of Nunn.

Soldier's death shows
difficulties in Somalia
MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) -
The screams were distinct - the
chilling call of the fallen. A sniper's
bullet in his chest, Lance Cpl.
Anthony Botello was carried from
harm's way clinging to the sleeve of
his comrade's camouflaged blouse,
his last link to life.
The manner of his untimely death
illustrated the dilemma of the nearly
9,000 Marines in Somalia: To show
restraint while going down the dark
and lawless corridors of a country
where the gun rules.
Botello, 21, from Wilburton,
Okla., had volunteered that fateful
Monday night as the point man on a
patrol looking for snipers who had
been firing on the Marines.
Rounding the corner, the 20-man
patrol made a left turn onto a path-
way shown on their map as a road
that turned out to be a trail dotted.
On previous patrols, Somalis had
come out of their homes when they
heard the Marines passing through.
But when they realized they were
U.S. Marines, they went right back
