KARKUR JUNCTION, Israel (AP) - A car packed
with explosives pulled up to a bus in northern Israel
during rush hour yesterday, igniting a massive fireball
that trapped passengers in the blazing bus and killed at
least 16 people, including two suicide attackers.
About 45 people were wounded in the blast at
Karkur Junction, several miles inland from the
coastli town of Hadera. The army said 15 of the
wounded were soldiers. The body of at least one sol-
dier was seen lying next to the bus.

The militant Islamic Jihad movement claimed
responsibility in a letter faxed to The Associated

was in "retaliation for the series of massacres com-
mitted by the criminal enemy against our people." It
cited recent Israeli military operations that have
resulted in Palestinian civilian deaths in the West

NEW YORK (AP) -- Securities and
Exchange Commission investigators
have notified Martha Stewart that they
plan to recommend civil securities fraud
charges against her in connection with
her sale of ImClone Systems Inc. shares,
according to media reports yesterday.
The Securities and Exchange Com-
mission gave Stewart what is called a
Wells Notice, The Wall Street Journal
and Financial Times reported on their
websites, citing people familiar with the
matter. That offers her a chance to
explain her actions before the full com-
mission makes its final decision.
In most cases, such a notice leads to
filing of charges.
Stewart's attorneys referred calls to
Allyn Magrino, Stewart's spokeswoman,
who declined to comment. Martha Stew-
art Living Omnimedia Inc., where Stew-
art is chief executive and chairman, also
declined to comment, as did an SEC
The news is the latest in a spate of set-
backs for Stewart. She is already under
investigation by the Justice Department,
which is probing whether she lied to
lawmakers about her December sale of
ImClone shares. She resigned earlier this
month from the board of the New York
Stewart sold her almost 4,000 shares
of ImClone on Dec. 27 -one day

A federal grand jury handed up a
two-count indictment of six Americans

North Korea ready to
discuss nuclear arms
North Korea said yesterday it was
ready for talks on its nuclear weapons
program even as South Korea warned
the issue could escalate into a security
crisis on their divided peninsula.
The pledge by North Korea's cere-
monial head of state, Kim Yong Nam,
to resolve the problem through dialogue
was at odds with U.S. demands for an
immediate suspension of the nuclear
activity, which violates international
Moreover, it carried a condition: Kim

withdraw its "hostile policy" toward the

North Korean accusations that Wash-
ington is plotting to undermine its com-
munist system and even use U.S. troops
stationed in South Korea as the van-
guardof an invasion.
Burial artifact may be
connected to Jesus
An inscription on a burial artifact
recently discovered in Israel is "the first
appearance of Jesus in the archaeologi-
cal record," magazine editor Hershel
Shanks announced yesterday.
Writing in the new issue of Shanks'
Biblical Archaeology Review, Andre
Lemaire, a specialist in ancient
inscriptions at France's Practical
School of Higher Studies, says it is
"very probable" the find is an authen-
tic reference to Jesus of Nazareth and
he dates it to A.D. 63 - just three
decades after the crucifixion.
Kyle McCarter, a Johns Hopkins
University archaeologist, told a news
conference that the identification is
probable but he has "a bit of doubt"
"We may never be absolutely certain.
In the work I do we're rarely absolutely
certain about anything," he said.
That Jesus existed is not doubted by
Pig sperm engineered
to carry human genes
In a step toward creating herds of pigs
that could provide organs for transplant-
ing into humans, Italian researchers
manipulated swine sperm to make an
animal strain that carries human genes
in the heart, liver and kidneys.
Researchers at the University of
Milan mixed swine sperm with the
DNA of a human gene called decay
accelerating factor, or DAF, and then
used the modified sperm to fertilize pig
eggs. The eggs were implanted into
sows to produce litters of pigs that car-
ried the human gene.
"What we obtain at high efficiency
and low cost is genetically modified
pigs expressing the human protein,"
said Dr. Marialuisa Lavitrano, a Uni-
versity of Milan researcher and first
author of the study appearing today in
the Proceedings of the National Acad-
emy of Sciences.

Iraq's missiles remain a threat to U.S. forces and allies in the Persian Gulf,
despite nearly a dozen years of American advances in anti-missile technology.
The few dozen longer-range Scud missiles Iraq may have wobble so much in
flight that they make a difficult target for America's most advanced Patriot anti-
missile systems. But Iraq has developed shorter-range missiles that can fly under
or overwhelm U.S. missile defenses. And the United States has fewer than 40 of
its most advanced Patriots ready for use.
That means missiles could be among Saddam Hussein's most threatening
weapons if the United States decides to wage war against Iraq. One of Iraq's tar-
gets could be Kuwait, which the United States wrested away from Saddam in
1991 and where U.S. troops are massing for a possible invasion.
"Part of what the Iraqis would want to do is cause massive casualties in Kuwait
with a chemical attack," said military analyst John Pike of GlobalSecurity.org. "It
could create some real dilemmas for the American commander if the Iraqis are
firing missiles faster than the Patriot can shoot them down."
Iraq's main missile threat during the Gulf war was the Scud, a missile Iraq bought
wholesale from the former Soviet Union and later modified to extend its range.
Court refuses to review execution of minors
A bitterly divided Supreme Court refused yesterday to consider ending the exe-
cution of killers who were under 18 when they committed their crimes.
Four justices said the court should continue a reexamination of the death penal-
ty begun in earnest last year. The court recently abolished executions for the men-
The court passed up a chance to reopen the question of whether executing very
young killers violates the Constitution's ban on "cruel and unusual punishment."
Currently, states that allow the death penalty may impose it on killers who were 16
or 17 at the time of their crimes.
"The practice of executing such offenders is a relic of the past and is inconsis-
tent with evolving standards of decency in a civilized society," wrote Justice John
Paul Stevens, joined by Justices David Souter, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen
Breyer. "We should put an end to this shameful practice."
Breyer also wrote separately to say the court should consider a second death
penalty case that asks whether it was unconstitutional to leave inmates for decades
on death row.
