Jewish pavilion struck by arsonists E

A pavilion in a Jewish cemetery was burned to the ground and assailants threw a
fire bomb at a synagogue in new attacks on a Jewish targets yesterday, even as hun-
dreds of families held Passover prayers at another charred synagogue attacked here
over the weekend. In the latest attack yesterday, assailants threw a Molotov cocktail
at a Marseille synagogue despite two police guards having been posted at there as
part of a new government effort to stem a recent wave of anti-Semitic violence in
France.The Molotov cocktail landed only a few yards from the officers. No one was
injured and the synagogue was not damaged. The two assailants got away.The inci-
dents came as hundreds of families took part in an evening Passover ceremony
across town beside the charred remains of the Or Aviv synagogue, which burned
down after a nighttime attack on Sunday.
"This is unacceptable. I'm now expecting a synagogue to burn every night,"
Clement Yana, regional leader of the Representative Council of French Jewish
Groups, told The Associated Press.
After the Sunday attack, Prime Minister Lionel Jospin pleaded yesterday that the
violence in the Middle East not be allowed to bleed over into France. Israel has
launched a large-scale invasion of Palestinian towns in the West Bank after a string
of suicide bombings.

Police raided more suspected al-Qaida hide-outs, arresting 16 people in an
ongoing crackdown against Osama bin Laden's terror network in Pakistan, offi-
cials said yesterday.
The country's major Islamic parties called on the government to end military
cooperation with the United States in the war on terrorism and announced plans
for nationwide protests against Israel's military offensive against the Palestinians
- a move the clerics sought to link to U.S. policies.
The latest raids occurred Monday at two houses in Lahore, Pakistan's second-
largest city, a senior police official said. Two of the 16 people arrested are Pakista-
nis and the other 14 are foreigners, said the official, who spoke on condition of
anonymity. He said most of the foreigners are Arabs - Saudis, Libyans and Syri-
ans - but "a few" are Afghans.
All admitted they had entered Pakistan after the collapse of Taliban rule in
Afghanistan last year, Lahore police chief Javed Noor said. Other police officials
said they expected further raids on suspected al-Qaida hide-outs in Punjab
province, which includes Lahore.

VIEQUES, Puerto Rico
Na ships deploy
shells at Vieques
Thuds from inert shells shook
Vieques island yesterday as Navy ships
deployed for a second day of exercises
at the U.S. military's prized Caribbean
bombing range, which it says is critical
for troops facing combat in the war
against terrorism.
The exercises, opposed by a protest
movement that has lost strength since
the Sept. 11 terror attacks, continued as
a Puerto Rican court considered an
appeal by Vieques Mayor Damaso Ser-
rano, who wants the court to order a
halt to the maneuvers on the outlying
Puerto Rican island. Serrano is appeal-
ing a decision from the District Court
in the eastern city of Fajardo, which
decided to move the case to a U.S. Fed-
eral Court.
"We are now a nation fighting a war
against terrorism ... American military
personnel are being injured or killed on
the battlefield of Afghanistan," the
Navy said in its court motion.
Jury selection begins
for 25-year-old case
Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel went
on trial for murder yesterday, accused of
bludgeoning a neighbor girl to death 27
years ago when they were both 15.
Superior Court Judge John
Kavanewsky Jr. introduced prospective
jurors to Skakel, who stood and gave a
slight smile. Later, as he left the court-.

Vatican quiet on the 6
Pope's condition

house and was asked how the day went,
Skakel replied: "It was good"
Two jurors were chosen, but lawyers
said it could take over a month to seat
all 12 and the four alternates. The rest
of the trial may take up to two months.
Skakel, 41, is accused of beating
Martha Moxley with a golf club in their
wealthy Greenwich neighborhood in
1975. The nephew of the late Sen.
Robert F Kennedy was arrested in Jan-
uary 2000 after a one-judge grand jury
investigated the murder following arti-
cles and books about the old case.

Deadline for all applications is Friday, April 5, 2002.


The Vatican denied yesterday that
doctors are considering surgery on
Pope John Paul II's ailing right knee.
The frail pope cut back his participa-
tion in several Holy Week ceremonies
because of what the Vatican described
as arthrosis, a joint disease involving
destruction of cartilage. The Rome
newspaper, II Messaggero, reported
Sunday that knee surgery was planned
within days. Surgeon Alfredo Carfagni
at San Carlo di Nancy near the Vatican
also said the hospital was on alert, wait-
ing for the Vatican to decide whether
the pontiff would have his knee exam-
ined there to see if surgery should be
performed. But John Paul's spokesman,
Joaquin Navarro-Valls, said the reports
that John Paul would be hospitalized
and that such. surgery was planned are
"without any foundation."
