U.N. prepares to inspect Iraq

UNITED NATIONS (AP) - As U.N. weapons.
inspectors moved ahead with plans to return to Iraq,
the United States and Russia clashed yesterday over
whether to take Baghdad at its word or impose a
new ultimatum. "We have seen this game before,"
said a skeptical Colin Powell.
The secretary of state reaffirmed Washington's
call for a tough anti-Iraq resolution by the U.N.
Security Council, despite Iraq's sudden about-face
on inspections.
But Russia's foreign minister said he saw no
immediate need for new U.N. demands if the
inspectors are quickly dispatched. He was backed
up by Arab leaders, Moscow's traditional allies. The
"logic of war" may now be replaced by "the logic
of peace," said one.
The 15-member Security Council majority decid-
ed, despite a U.S. request for more time, to quickly

schedule a meeting, possibly today, with chief
weapons inspector Hans Blix to discuss renewed
inspections. The Americans, supported by Britain
and Colombia, wanted first to prepare a new reso-
lution, diplomats said.
Blix then met with Iraqi representatives, after
which the weapons inspection agency said talks
on final arrangements for the return of inspec-
tors would take place "and be concluded" at a
meeting in Vienna during the week of Sept. 30.
Earlier yesterday, the Iraqis said the talks would
be held in 10 days.
In the Middle East, the business of preparing for
war went on, as American warplanes flew under
aggressive new rules over Iraq, and U.S. command-
ers considered basing heavy bombers closer by.
At a U.N. news conference at which Powell and
Russia's Igor Ivanov laid out conflicting views,

Secretary-General Kofi Annan appealed for them to
stick together on Iraq.
This is "the beginning, not an end," he said. "We
should try to maintain the unity of purpose that
has emerged."
The Secdrity Council then went into closed-door
consultations on a timetable for dealing with the
fast-changing Iraq issue.
The council sent weapons inspectors into Iraq
after the 1990-91 Gulf War, to ensure that President
Saddam Hussein's regime destroyed any chemical
or biological weapons it possessed, and any capaci-
ty to produce those or nuclear weapons.
The inspectors left in 1998, ahead of U.S.
airstrikes, amid Iraqi allegations that some were
spying for the United States and countercharges
that Baghdad wasn't cooperating with the
inspection teams.

H EBRON, West Bank -a
Bomb injures children in school yard
Israeli police and Palestinian officials in the West Bank said they believe
extremist Jewish settlers planted two bombs in a Palestinian school yard yester-
day. One device exploded, injuring five children.
Yehoshua Mor-Yosef, spokesman for the Jewish Settlers' Council, said the
bombing was an "immoral and illegal act."
Israeli military officials said the explosion occurred near a water cooler in the
courtyard of the Ziff junction secondary school south of Hebron. The second
bomb was found and safely detonated. The Israeli military controls the junction, a
remote region populated mainly by Bedouins.
In other developments, the Israeli Supreme Court rejected a petition by the
families of two Palestinian suicide bombers to prevent the destruction of their
homes by Israeli forces, Army Radio reported. The two bombers carried out a
Dec. 1 attack in which 11 Israelis were killed. Relatives denied they knew of the
suicide attackers' plans.
Israeli troops entered the Khan Younis refugee camp in Gaza earlier yes-
terday and blew up metal workshops where the Israelis say Palestinians
were making weapons, the latest in a series of almost nightly raids by Israeli
forces in Gaza.
KARACHI, Pakistan
Musharraf vows to hunt down terrorists
One day after turning over key Sept. 11 suspect Ramzi Binalshibh to American
authorities, Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf yesterday vowed to root out any
al-Qaida operatives remaining in his nation and promised that foreigners among
them would be handed to the United States or other countries to face justice.
Al-Qaida fighters who fled Afghanistan after the fall of the Taliban regime
last year will be hunted down and will not be allowed to make themselves
comfortable in Pakistan, Musharraf said in two appearances in this southern
port city where security forces last week killed two al-Qaida suspects and cap-
tured 10 others.
Musharraf revealed that the captives included a Saudi, an Egyptian and eight
Yemenis. Binalshibh and four others were turned over to U.S. custody Monday;
the other five remain in Pakistan undergoing interrogation by the Inter-Services
Intelligence, the country's security agency.
Musharraf used his two-day visit here to underline his determination to
rid Pakistan of the Islamic extremists who have also targeted him and his
military government.

KIEV, Ukraine -
Police halt protests
against president
Several thousand riot police
armed with shields and rubber trun-
cheons broke up a tent camp and
evicted protesters in front of the
Ukrainian president's office before
dawn yesterday, after tens of thou-
sands of people marched to demand
he resign or call early elections.
Following the country's biggest
demonstrations since Ukraine's
independence from the Soviet Union
11 years ago, protesters representing
an array of opposition groups from
Communists to pro-western reform-
ers set up 167 tents under a heavy
downpour Monday evening.
They vowed to occupy the area
until President Leonid Kuchma steps
down from.his current position.
"If we don't dismantle the system,
there will be no way out of the polit-
ical crisis," former Prime Minister
Viktor Yushchenko, a key opposition
leader, told The Associated Press.
JAKARTA, indonesia
Al-Qaida claims it
planned assassination
Al-Qaida is responsible for a series
of deadly church bombings in Indone-
sia and plotted the assassination of
President Megawati Sukarnoputri,
according to the confession of a top
agent from the terrorist network
caught here.
Omar Faruq, a Kuwaiti who
described himself as al-Qaida's senior
representative in Southeast Asia, said
the group hoped to trigger a religious
civil war in Indonesia that would lead

to the formation of a "pure Islamic
state," according to a confidential U.S.
document obtained yesterday by the
Los Angeles Times.
Faruq's statements indicate that al-
Qaida has been much more active in
Indonesia than the government has
been willing to acknowledge. Top offi-
cials have repeatedly denied that terror-
ists have been operating in Indonesia,
the world's largest Islamic country.
At the same time, Faruq's confession
suggests that the terrorists have had a
high failure rate in Indonesia.
PYONGYANG, North Korea
North Korea, Japan
closer to dialogue
In an astonishing concession at a
summit with Japanese Prime Minister
Junichiro Koizumi, North Korean
leader Kim Jong Il confirmed yesterday
that North Korean spies kidnapped
Japanese citizens decades ago, and said
at least four are still alive.
Ending years of denials, Kim
admitted about a dozen Japanese
were kidnapped by North Korean
agents, said it was "regrettable and
would never happen again," and
added that those responsible would
be punished.
Kim's comments opened the way for
Japan and North Korea to begin long-
stalled talks toward establishing diplo-
matic ties. Kim and. Koizumi
announced in a joint statement the talks
would resume in October.
"I strongly protested the abductions,"
Koizumi said in a news conference,
adding that Kim apologized. "Kim said
it was done by elements in the military,
and an investigation was under way."
