Regime leader Pol Pot dies in sleep

BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) - Pol Pot, leader of
the Khmer Rouge regime that sent as many as 2 mil-
lion Cambodians to their deaths, died peacefully in his
sleep yesterday, Khmer Rouge officials said. He was
Pol Pot died before midnight in northern Cambodia
near the Thai border, said Nuon Nou, reached by tele-
phone on the border. Nuon Nou was assigned to guard
Pol Pot after he lost power in a bloody power struggle
within the Khmer Rouge last year.
Nuon Nou said Pol Pot's wife informed Khmer offi-
cials of his death.
"She learned that her husband was dead when she
was tying the (mosquito) net for him, Nuon Nou said.

"Ie died in a but built for him after he lost his power."
Thai military and Khmer Rouge ces, who demand-
ed anonymity, gave heart failure as the cause of death.
Nuon Nol, who said photos had been taken of the
corpse as evidence, dismissed all suggestions of foul
play. "No one has done anything like that," he said.
The Khmer Rouge would hold a traditional Khmer
funeral for its former leader, the Nuon Nou said.
In the Carnbodian capital of Phnom Penh, govern-
ment spokesperson Khieu Kanharith demanded an
autopsy to determine the cause of death.
"We request whoever has his body to turn it over to
the government,' he said, adding, "There are a lot of
coincidences here"

Pol Pot's death, often rumored in recent years,
comes amid reports that Khmer officials were bidding
to hand over their former leader to an international tri-
bunal and as Cambodian forces were drawing near the
last Khmer rebels holed up in mountains near the Thai
Pol Pot orchestrated one of the most violent revo-
lutions of the 20th century, turning Cambodia into a
vast killing field and slave labor camp the 1970s. As
many as one out of five Cambodians perished
through executions, disease and starvation before
neighboring Vietnam invaded in 1979, ending his
campaign to remake Cambodia into a Marxist agrar-
ian utopia.

Judge calls for investigation into Starr
LITT LE ROCK. Ark. (AP) -A federal judge called yesterday for an investi .a-
tion into links among Whitewater prosecutor Kenneth Starr and other conserva-
U.S. District Judge 1lenry Woods said groups accused of funneling money to key
government witness David Hale might also have orchestrated his removal from a
Whitewater case initially assigned to him.
"It is important to me, and I believe to the integrity of the judicial process. to know
whether any person in the justice system, including those in (Starr's office) or in the
legislative branch, was aware of machinations to afTect and determine what judge
would preside over the ... case' Woods said in a statement released by his office.
Woods, a lifelong Democrat, was assigned to hear a fraud and conspiracy case
against then-Gov. Jim Guy Tucker, also a Democrat, until the 8th U.S. Circuit Court
of Appeals removed him in March 1996.
Starr asked that Woods be removed after the judge tossed out Tucker's initial
The bulk of the case against Woods depended on media articles suggesting
Woods had close ties to President Clinton and the first lady. Woods said some arti-
cles were based on an "untrue" and "libelous" op-ed column written by one of h'
polar opponents.

"We've been trying to set up a
meeting with Maureen (Hartford)
all year," Jones said.
"It wasn't until we sent out press
releases and got public pressure that
we got the response we wanted,"
Jones said.
Jones said the students want to
talk to Hartford because she is the
liason between students and admin-
istrators and therefore is account-
able for the unsatisfactory responses
by the University.
Hartford suggested that Dean of

Students E. Royster Harper,
Director of Housing William Zeller
and Associate Dean of Students
Frank Cianciola may be in atten-
Harper said she would "be happy
to attend" if invited.
Derige said the meeting is "essen-
tial" and its goal is to make Hartford
more accessible to students of color
and to draw up a plan of action
regarding these racial issues on

Law Dean Jeffery Lehman said the
Law School was not aware that the
University had published the rankings.
"It's an embarrassing mistake,"
Lehman said. "This is not anything the
Law School would say."
Yale Law School received the No. 1
overall spot in the U.S. News and World
Report rankings.
Lehman said he tried to contact Yale
Law Dean Anthony Kronman to dis-
cuss any misrepresentation of the rank-
"I did try to place a courtesy call to
my friend that's the dean," Lehman
said. "H e will get a chuckle out of
Catherine Cureton, the Law School's
director of publications, said that not
only were members of the Law School
community unaware that the University
was publishing parts of the U.S. News
rankings, but also that many of them do
not like to use the rankings to evaluate

"I don't think applicants for admis-
sion are well-served solely relying on
rankings," Cureton said. "The students
I talk with that are here for school said
they did not use rankings as the one
decision-making consideration:"
Celeste James, director of Media
Relations for U.S. News and Report,
said the University seems to be taking
the steps necessary to clear up any mis-
"I maintain that it is misleading if.
there is no parenthetical information
about where the information came
from," James said. "So, if they're
reprinting them, that seems appropriate
to me."
Peterson said the 22,000 wallet-size
informational guides cost about $7,000
to print, but will cost less than $1,000 to
reprint. The profiles were published by
Marketing Communications and dis-
tributed last week to various University
departments, as well as members of the

Breast exam false
alarms common
A woman who has regular mam-
mograms and clinical breast exams
will almost certainly have at least
one false alarm during her lifetime
that will require stressful, time-con-
suming and expensive further test-
ing to rule out breast cancer, accord-
ing to a new study being reported
One in five of those false alarms will
lead to a breast biopsy in which tissue
is removed from the suspected tumor, a
team from the University of
Washington School of Medicine and
Harvard Medical School report in
today's New England Journal of
According to the study, 50 percent of
women who have 10 mammograms
will have one so-called false positive
result. The high rate is an outgrowth of
physicians' efforts to detect every
breast tumor possible, said Joann
Elmore of the University of

Although increased efforts should be
directed at reducing the number of
false positives, she said, the study car-
ries a hopeful message.
When women receive a positive
result on a mammogram or clinical
examination, "it is very scary,' Elmore

U.N. access to Iraq
still unsettled
arms experts warned yesterday that
access to Iraq's presidential sites "is by
no means solved," despite an agree-
ment allowing inspectors to travel any-
wheice in the country.
In a report to the Security Council,
the U.N. Special Commission also said
diplomats who accompanied inspectors
sided with Iraq in some instances when
minor disputes arose during visits to
President Saddam Hussein's eight
palaces last month.
The report, sent to the council yes-
terday, reviewed the first round of
inspections of the eight palaces per-
mitted under the U.N.-Iraq agree-
ment, signed in February, which
averted a U.S.-led military strike
against Iraq.
Although inspections were carried
out to its satisfaction, the commis-
sion, also known as UNSCOM, said,
problems are "likely to re-emerge,"
especially when teams try to visit
sites with little or no warning to the

"It is essential to note ... the funda-
mental issue of continuing access is by
no means solved and has only been
postponed," the report said.
The report cited remarks attribute
to Iraqi Lt. Gen. Amir Rasheed, who
reportedly said that Iraq "had agreed to
a process of visits of finite duration:'
Israel releases man

JERUSALEM - Under pressure
from human rights groups, Israel yesteO
day released a Palestinian man jailed
since 1992 without being charged ,or
Four other long-term prisoners were
also released, but it was the case-of
Ahmed Qatamesh -- the longest-held
and most prominent of Israel's untried
detainees - that had become a cause
celebrated in recent months.
Qatamesh was arrested Sept. 1, 1992.
Israel never produced evidence that
had been involved in terrorism.
