Malaysia leadrarrested


- Malaysia's sacked deputy prime
minister was arrested late yesterday
after thousands of his supporters
marched to the prime minister's house
and demanded the ouster of Asia's
longest-serving leader.
Hundreds of Anwar Ibrahim's
allies shouted angrily, "God is
great!" and "Long live Anwar!"
shaking their fists as police led him
away from the house where he had
conducted almost two weeks of
protest rallies against the 17-year
rule of Prime Minister Mahathir
The violence sullied a state visit by
Queen Elizabeth It, who worshiped at a

church not far from a mass opposition
rally yesterday and was to meet with
Mahathir today.
Anwar, once Mahathir's handpicked
successor, is now his principal foe. His
arrest appeared to be an attempt to
thwart the kind of large-scale protests
earlier this year that led to the ousting
of Indonsesia's President Suharto.
Mahathir became Asia's longest-
serving leader after Suharto was
forced out in May after 32 years by
violent protests against alleged gov-
ernment corruption and a severe
economic crisis.
Anwar was led away yesterday from
his home and pushed into a van by
police carrying assault rifles and firing

tear gas to break up the crowd.
Helmeted special reserve police,
armed with assault rifles, parked jeeps
in front of Anwar's house and blocked
off roads in the well-heeled neighbor-
hood to prevent his supporters from
marching after the van.
Also arrested was Roslan Kassim, a
northern state youth-wing leader from
the ruling party, who was in the house
during an Anwar news conference.
Matthew Moore, a journalist with
Australia's Sydney Morning Herald,
said when police came through the
door, "They jumped on me, screamed at
me and knocked me down." He said
they demanded his tape recorder and
notebook at gunpoint.

recalled Giacherio's warm personality.
"Chris and I started our first day of
kindergarten together." Jerue said. "I
know there are people here who know
him better than I did butI know that he
had this ability to speak to and commu-
nicate with such a broad range of'peo-
ple and all of us could see it'if he was
here tonight."
Speakers included one ofGiacherio:
high school teachers, fellow Pioneer
graduates. classmates and other friends
who shared stories ofGiacherio's child-
hood, softball teams and more recent
interests including his employment at
Grizzly Peak Brewing Company on
West Washington Street.

U.S., Japan to work on defense system
NEW YORK Concerned about North Korea's ballistic missile deelopment,
the United States and Japan agreed yesterday to conduct joint research on a mis-
sile defense system that could protect the island nation from attack.
"No one should doubt our commitment to detend our interests and to work togeth-
er for peace and stability in Asia," Defense Secretary \William ('ohen said at a joint
news conference with Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and their Japanese c4
terparts. "And this is the best way to protect both time United States and Japan

guarding the always tense demilitarized zone betveen North and South Korea.
Yesterday's agreement comes after North Korea launched a rocket over Japar
on Aug. 31 in a failed attempt to send a satellite into orbit. It was the latest exam-
ple of Pyongyang's aggressive program to develop long-range missiles that could
one day hit American shores, U.S. officials said.
Japan has conducted preliminary studies, some with the United States, on ways
to defend against missiles. The United States is developing several theater missile
defense systems as well, although American scientists has en't been able to over-
come technological hurdles to knock a fast-moving target out of the sky.
Now, U.S. and Japan will work together on research and development, w h
could lead to a missile defense system in the future. No target date was set.
