Serb gangs pillge
Sarajevo suburbs

The Washington Post
GRBAVICA, Bosnia-Herzegovina-
Smoke spiraled from the last Serb-held
area of Sarajevo last night as gangs of
Serb toughs set buildings ablaze, raped
ld women and ransacked apartments in
Qfinal spasmofviolence before this deso-
late stretch of battered high-rises returns
to Muslim control tomorrow.
While NATO soldiers, who are sup-
dosed to have secured the area, carried
but individual acts of heroism, U.N.
officials were vicious in their criticism
of the NATO operation as a whole in
Orbavica, the last offive Serb-held sub-
irbs to be transferred to the mostly
Muslim Bosnian government.
The growing chaos in Grbavica fol-
lows claims by NATO spokespeople that
they would increase their presence after
similar destruction in the other suburbs.
Western officials say that the terror
unfolding here is part of a plan by
ultranationalist Serbs to force as many
Serbs as possible to leave Sarajevo. The
scheme, carried out by Serb gangs tied
to Bosnian Serb leader Radovan
Karadzic, aims at proving that Serbs,
Muslims and Croats cannot coexist,

thereby bringing into question the im-
age of a multiethnic Bosnia envisaged
under the Dayton peace accord.
Muslim officials have also done little
to encourage the Serbs to stay. While
until recently they had dispatched gov-
ernment fire trucks into Grbavica to
extinguish blazes, several days ago
they stopped, arguing that NATO had
failed to offer the firefighters adequate
protection. The real reason, Western
officials argued, was that the Sarajevo
government was willing to let the fires
burn if that meant the Serbs would go.
Of an estimated 70,000 people who
were living in the five Serb-held sub-
urbs, about 10 percent are staying, less
than half the number the United Na-
tions initially had projected.
Problems in implementing the Day-
ton peace agreement prompted the
United States to call a meeting for
today in Geneva ofthe leaders of Serbia,
Croatia and Bosnia. Secretary of State
Warren Christopher is to go on from
there to Moscow to meet with the other
members of the international contact
group for the Balkans - Russia, Ger-
many, France and Britain.

SYMPOSIUM

afternoon. The students, including mem-
bers of India Development Services,
passed out fliers and held signs show-
ing opposition to World Bank processes.
The protesters urged audience mem-
bers to challenge Brown during the
question-and-an-
swer section of a
panel Friday. There
"It was not a
disruptive pro- reas n f
test," LSA senior
CarmenGlen said. To Po
"A number of - Mu
people, including
panelists, said, Managing
'We're glad Grameen Bank
you're here and
we really agree."'
The symposium featured more than
30 speakers, including leading officials
in developmental organizations. Along
with Brown, the symposium also at-
tracted U.N. Ambassador Jayantha
Dhanapala, a Sri Lanka delegate who is
viewed as a contender for the post of
U.N. secretary-general when current
Secretary-General Boutros-Boutros
Ghali's term ends.
Organizers said attracting the
speakers was a challenge. "This is an
ambitious project, seeing as this is the
first year (of the symposium)," said
School of Public Policy first-year stu-
dent Nami Ohtomo. "It has brought
together people from different disci-

a
t

plines."
Aside from the political leaders and
distinguished academics who spoke,
two community leaders from Chiapas,
Mexico, participated to discuss the prac-
tical needs of their community.
"The people that do have the money
want products for almost free," said
panelist Petrona de la Cruz Cruz.
"(People) don't realize how much work
it takes, and I
think it would be
is no better if the work
of indigenous
)r p op le women were rec-
ognized."
In addition to
shammed Yunus the recommenda-
tions considered
director of the by the panels, sev-
in Bangladesh eral members of
the conference
suggested
microfinancing as a possible solution
to the problems of the Third World. In
microfinancing, large numbers of poor
people receive small loans, usually un-
der $50.
Panelist Muhammed Yunus, manag-
ing director of the Grameen Bank in
Bangladesh, said microfinancing not
only gives borrowers money to start
cottage businesses, it also instills a sense
of pride. As loans are paid back with
interest, microfinancing is commer-
cially profitable for banks.
The benefits of microfinancing hold
great potential for helping combat Third
World poverty, Yunus said. "There is
no reason for people to be poor."

Ruling may be grounds for Salvi appeal.
BOSTON -A judge's refusal to let John Salvi III testify on his own behalf
even though he had said he didn't want to take the stand - could provide
lawyers grounds for an appeal, legal experts said yesterday.
"In a case like this, a defendant's testimony is not just testimony, he is an exhib'
for his own insanity," Harvard University Law Prof. Alan Dershowitz sai
yesterday. "It sounds like a classic appellate issue."
Defense attorneys asked to put Salvi on the stand Wednesday to re*a
prosecution psychologist who testified that Salvi was sane when he opened fire o
two abortion clinics in December 1994.
Dr. Joel Haycock also said he thought Salvi was smart enough to fake mental illneg
"We thought the best way would be to let them (the jury) see with their own ey
and hear with their own ears" how delusional Salvi was, defense attorney J:
Carney Jr. said Saturday.
Superior Court Judge Barbara Dortch-Okara said the testimony would
irrelevant because Salvi would use the time to talk about his belief in a worldwid
anti-Catholic conspiracy, Carney said.
Nina Flaherty, spokesperson for the Norfolk County district attorney's offic
would not comment on the defense request or the judge's response. d

in the island's history. Although Tai-
wanese President Lee Teng-hui has
publicly stated he is in favor of reunifi-
cation with China, Chinese leaders be-
lieve Lee is promoting an independent
Taiwan.
Political science Prof. Kenneth
Lieberthal said he believes that after
the elections, Lee will make a "serious
gesture to improve ties with Beijing."
"I don't think there's any chance at
all that Lee will be elected and de-
clare independence," he said. "If he
does continue to promote indepen-
dence status then tensions will in-
crease."
Lieberthal is the author of the book
"Governing China," which chronicles
China's political history and its gov-
ernment structure.
Yasheng Huang, who has family in
China, said he does not support Tai-
wanese independence.
"China will not allow it and (Taiwan-
ese independence) is an invitation for
war," he said. "Taiwan should be more

responsible."
Although LSA senior Jason Wang is
in favor of Taiwanese independence,
he said he thinks the Taiwanese people
do not really care who runs the govern-
ment.
"People in Taiwan are more con-
cerned about their money than who's
running the country," he said.
Elise Dang, a member of Taiwanese
American Students for Awareness, said
some of her family members in Taiwan
are ready to "stand up for what (they)
believe."
"I talked to my grandma and she said,
'If they want to come over then let them
come over,"' Dang said. "They're not
as scared as everyone thinks. They're
ready to stand up for what they believe
Dang, who is going to Taiwan to
work this summer, said she is not afraid
to go back.
"Everyone is sick of China's
threats," she said. "If China does at-
tack, it would be a bad move on their
part because it shows they're moving
backwards from their goals to be-
come part of the international com-
munity."

Peace Corps a steady
employer of grads
WASHINGTON - For Americans
finishing college this year, the Peace ;
Corps isthe employer with themostjob
openings, says a survey of employment
prospects.
The federal volunteer overseas ser-
vice operating in 94 countries plans to
recruit 3,292 members of the Class of
1996 and led the list of 100 employers
with openings for new graduates who
responded to an annual survey by The
Black Collegian magazine.
The only others planning to hire more
than 2,000 graduates this year were two
Chicago-based consulting and account-
ing firms, Andersen Consulting LLP
and Arthur Andersen LLP and Enter-
prise Rent-A-Car.
Peace Corps headquarters in Wash-
ington called attention over the week-
end to the survey in the New Orleans-
based magazine's winter semester is-
sue.
Black Collegian is published twice a
year as a career and self-development
journal for African American students.

However, its survey covers the tt
number of anticipated college. hir
"not simply their minority hires,"
said.
