NATION/WORLD

Clinton uneasy
about Israeli plan

The Washington Post
WASHINGTON - President
Clinton yesterday intensified his
criticism of Israel's plan to construct
new housing for Jewish residents in
'mostly-Arab East Jerusalem, and he
appealed to "the people in the Arab
world" to understand why the United
States vetoed a U.N. Security
Council resolution denouncing the
project.
"It's obvious that who owns the
land is disputed," Clinton said, chal-
lenging Israel's assertion of a right to
build there. In an allusion to Israel's
decision to go ahead with the project
without negotiating with the
Palestinians over it, Clinton chided
those who "attempt to preclude the

process of negotiations or pre-empt it,
or are insensitive to the needs and
feelings" of others involved.
Nevertheless Clinton said the United
States "did the right thing" to veto the
anti-Israel U.N. resolution on Friday.
Speaking at a White House news con-
ference with Egyptian President Hosni
Mubarak, the president said the resolu-
tion contained language that
Washington has regarded as veto-bait in
the past, such as an assertion that Israeli
settlements are "illegal." He also argued
that the United Nations is not the prop-
er forum for matters that are under
negotiation between parties in the
region.
The U.S. position is that the future of
Jerusalem is a matter to be resolved in

President, FBI clash over policies
WASHINGTON -The White House and the FBI clashed in a rare public quar-
rel yesterday after President Clinton said 'he should have been alerted when the
bureau told national security officials that the Chinese government might be trying
to influence U.S. elections.
The FBI said it did not try to keep the information from Clinton's senior staff last
year. But the White House said the FBI imposed specific limits that restricted the
information to two people on Clinton's National Security Council staff.
"Therefore, the White House considers the FBI's statement to be in error," pre,-
idential spokesperson Mike McCurry said, leaving the FBI and the White House at
an embarrassing impasse at day's end.
Four hours earlier, Clinton complained that he should have been told about the
FBI's suspicions. "It didn't happen. It should have happened. It was a mistake."
"The president should know," he said when questioned by a reporter.
Indeed, FBI agents had briefed at least one member of Congress about the
alleged plot as long ago as 1991 during the Bush administration, a congressperson
said.
Late yesterday, the FBI issued a statement contradicting White House assertions
that the bureau had restricted the two national security officials from telling their
bosses about the FBI warning. ,

"final status" negotiations that Israel
and the Palestinians have agreed to con-
duct and that neither side should take
actions that prejudge the outcome.
Israel's position is that all of Jerusalem
will forever be the Jewish state's undi-
vided capital and that as the sovereign

power there Israel can build wherever it
wants.
Clinton acknowledged that "In all
candor I'm very concerned" about
damage done by the veto to U.S.
credibility as a Middle East peace
broker.

fever, severe headaches, a stiff neck and
back pain.
LSA junior Tal Sapeika said she is
frightened by the rapid progression of
the disease, which can be treated, but
only if detected early.
"By the time you realize you're sick,

you could be dead," she said.
Meningitis causes inflammation of
the meninges - the membranes cover-
ing the brain and spinal cord. It is trans-
mitted by fungi, viruses and bacteria, by
which the most severe cases occur.
LSA senior Kate Glickman said she
wouldn't consider flu-like symptoms to
be lethal. "I would probably igntre the
symptoms until I was writhing in pain."

Water shortage
causes healthcrisis
WASHINGTON - Dwindling
water supplies around the world are
threatening food shortages and health
crises and raising the possibility of
armed conflicts, a food policy research
group says.
"New strategies are urgently needed
to avert severe national, regional and
local scarcities that will depress agri-
cultural production, parch the house-
hold and industrial sectors, damage the
environment and escalate water-related
health problems," the organization con-
cluded in a study released Sunday.
In a survey of global water use, the
International Food Policy Research
Institute found rising demand at the
same time supplies are shrinking
because of waste, groundwater deple-
tion and pollution.
"Unless better water policies are
adopted internationally, we may see
large-scale conflicts and catastrophes
resulting from water shortages," writes

Balkans war crimes
tribunal opens third
trail in Netherlands
THE HAGUE, Netherlands - The
United Nations Tribunal for War Crimes
in the former Yugoslavia opened its third
trial yesterday, with a prosecutor accus-
ing four defendants of murdering, rap-
ing and committing other violent crimes ;
against Bosnian Serbs.
It marked the first time Muslims and
Croats had been brought into interna-
tional court for crimes against Serbs
during the war. And it was an opportu-
nity for the U.N. tribunal to dispute
charges it is biased against Serbs, who
comprise the bulk of the 74 men cur-
rently under indictment. In this case,
three of the defendants are Bosnian
Muslims and the fourth is a Bosnian
Croat.
Critics of the Tribunal also have
complained it is wasting firepower on
the petty criminals of the Balkan war
while the main quarries - Bosnian
Serb leader Radovan Karadzic and his
military leader Ratko Mladic -

Rosegrant believes that countries

increase tenfold.
White House to hire
welfare recipient
WASHINGTON - President
Clinton said yesterday he wants to
hire someone off welfare as a White
House employee - if there's a vacati-
cy.
Speaking during a news confere~e
with Egyptian President 1osni
Mubarak, Clinton said the possibility
of hiring a former welfare recipient at
the White House depends on whether
vacancies are available, and what thpe
vacant positions are.
"I'd like to see us set an example, if
we have a chance to do so," Clinton
said.

the new trial represent an entire spec-

local area.
Albania's southern,
rebels seize towns
TIRANA, Albania - Rebels in
southern Albania seized more territory
yesterday, looting assault rifles, heavy
machine guns and MiG fighter planes
from government bases as police and
army units fled north.
In Kucova, 75 miles south of the
capital Tirana, rebels towed three
Chinese-made MiGs off the tarnV
of Albania's largest military air base
- now abandoned - to hide them
from government forces. A shop-
keeper pleaded for people to put
down their guns, but they answered
by firing Kalashnikovs into the air.
Violence in the town injured eight
people, the Health Ministry said.
Security forces withdrew 25 miles
north, to the town of Lushnja.
