I Chechen rebels seize 2,000
hostages in southern Russia

MOSCOW (AP) - Chechen rebels
seized a hospital and took 2,000 people
hostage yesterday in a southern Rus-
sian city, battling troops in the streets
and threatening to "turn this city to hell
and ashes" if Russia doesn't pull its
forces out of Chechnya.
At least 23 people were killed in the
bold assault on Kizlyar, in the republic
of Dagestan, 60 miles northeast of the
Chechen capital of Grozny.
President Boris Yeltsin raged at his
military for letting such an attack hap-
pen for a second time, denouncing sol-
diers he said were snoozing when they
should have been blocking rebels. A
similar episode at a hospital in June left
more than 100 people dead.
The attack, led by a son-in-law of
separatist leader Dzhokhar Dudayev,
was the latest sign of new life in the
beleaguered Chechen rebel move-
ment after several months of low-
level activity.
Russian troops sealed off the town
and fought hundreds of rebels in street
skirmishes, news reports said. Chechen
snipers controlled a bridge across the
Terek River and two high-rise apart-
ment buildings near the hospital.
The rebels threatened to kill hostages
if Russia did not withdraw its troops
from Chechnya. An unconfirmed ITAR-
Tass report said rebels killed two of
their hostages.
"We can turn this city to hell and
ashes," the leader of the raid, Salman
Raduyev, 28, saidin an interview broad-

cast yesterday evening by Russian TV.
The attack prompted Yeltsin to call an
emergency session of security chiefs in
the Kremlin and brought renewed ap-
peals from critics to end the unpopular
The raid recalled an attack in June
when Chechen rebels seized about
1,000 hostages in a hospital in the
southern Russian town ofBudyonnovsk.

More than 100 people died before
negotiations won the hostages' re-
lease and the gunmen's free passage
"Budyonnovsk and Kizlyar will re-
peat again until Russia recognizes
Dudayev and the Chechen republic,"
Raduyev said in his statement.
Yeltsin said his troops were caught
off-guard again yesterday.

Clinton vetoes welfare overhaul bill

WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Clinton, just as he promised, yesterday
vetoed a Republican plan to overhaul
the nation's primary welfare programs
and end the federal guarantee of aid to
the poor.
Clinton complained in his veto mes-
sage that the Republican bill "does too
little to move people from welfare to
work," but said he was willing to work
with Congress on a new version "to
enact real, bipartisan reform."
The House and Senate passed the bill
the week before Christmas, but by mar-
gins less than the two-thirds majorities
needed to override Clinton's veto.
But Clinton waited until two weeks
of White House talks with Republicans
over ending federal deficits by the year
2002 and simultaneously cutting taxes

broke down yesterday before taking out
his pen for the welfare bill veto.
The sweeping rewrite of the nation's
60-year-old federal welfare system
would have replaced federal guaran-
tees to the Aid to Families with Depen-
dent Children program with block grants
that could be used by the states to fash-
ion their own welfare plans.
A centerpiece of Republican House
candidates' "Contract With America"
in 1994, thebill also would have capped
the total amount of federal funding for
welfare over the next seven years, with
an estimated savings of $58 billion.
Republicans saw the bill as restoring
the work ethic and binding families
closer together. Democrats said they
also support those values but com-
p] ained that the GOP measure took away

too much at the expense of children.
Clinton said he wanted a welfare re-
form plan that is motivated by the ur-
gency of reform rather than by a "bud-
get plan that is contrary to America's
"The current welfare system is broken
and must be replaced, for the sake of the
taxpayers who pay for it and the people
who are trapped by it," he said in his veto
message. But the legislation is "burdened
with deep budget cuts and structural
changes that fall short of real reform."
Clinton called for Congress to ad-
dress what he called shortcomings in
the legislation, largely in the areas of
work and child care. He also said Con-
gress should abandon efforts to gut the
Earned Income Tax Credit, which he
called a "powerful work incentive."
