raid kills

11. Arhan Shiites protest U.S.-backed government


officials Say

KANDAHAR, Afghanistan (AP) -
A U. S. air raid in southern Afghanistan
killed 11 villagers, including four chil-
dren, Afghan officials said yesterday.
The U.S. military said it killed five
militants in the weekend raid in the
insurgency-plagued Uruzgan province.
Sunday's incident came as American
commanders and Afghan officials hunt
for Taliban and al-Qaida suspects and
try to improve security in the lawless
south and east ahead of planned sum-
mer elections.
Their task was highlighted anew by
a bold daylight raid on a remote mili-
tary base that injured three American
Abdul Rahman, chief of Char
Chino district in Uruzgan, said the
attack occurred around 9 p.m. Sun-
day in Saghatho, a village where he
said U.S. forces hunting for insur-
gents had carried out searches and
made several arrests.
He said the victims were outside a
house and a helicopter was hovering
nearby when "a big plane came and
dropped bombs."
"They were simple villagers, they
were not Taliban. I don't know why the
U.S. bombed this home," he told an
Associated Press reporter by telephone
in the southern city of Kandahar.
The provincial governor, Jan
Mohammed Khan, confirmed Rah-
man's account that four men, four chil-
dren and three women were killed in
the American attack.
He said U.S. authorities told him
they found ammunition in a search of
the village. During the search, "The
people were afraid, they started run-
ning," Khan said.
Lt. Col. Bryan Hilferty, a U.S. mili-
tary spokesman, said a warplane killed
five armed militants north of Deh
Rawood, a town in Uruzgan where the
American military has a base, but had
no more information on the exact loca-
tion or time, and no word of any civil-
ian casualties. Saghatho is 25 miles
north of Deh Rawood.
He said an AC-130 gunship attacked
the men when they left a house fre-
quented, by insurgents. ",They were
running away from a known bad-guy
site," Hilferty told AP, insisting mili-
tary planners "carefully weigh the use
of deadly force."

Tens of thousands of Shiite Muslims marched peacefully in Baghdad
yesterday to demand an elected government, as U.S. and Iraqi officials pre-
pared to seek U.N. endorsement of American plans for transferring power
in Iraq.
Secretary-General Kofi Annan has been reluctant to let the United Nations play a
greater role in Iraq until he is convinced the country is safe.
Underscoring those dangers, 31 people were killed and about 120 were
wounded Sunday when a suicide bomber blew up his pickup truck at a gate
to the headquarters compound of the occupation authority in Baghdad,
Iraq's Health Minister Khudayer Abbas said yesterday.
Huge crowds of Iraqi Shiites, estimated by reporters at up to 100,000,
marched about three miles to the University of al-Mustansariyah, where a
representative of Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Husseini al-Sistani delivered a
speech he said was directed at Annan, the U.S.-led occupation authority
and its Iraqi allies.
It was the biggest display of Shiite political power in Baghdad since Sad-
dam Hussein's regime collapsed in April. It followed a similar demonstra-
tion on Thursday by some 30,000 Shiites in the southern city of Basra.
Sharon: Peace with Syria requires withdrawal
Addressing two of Israel's thorniest issues, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon told law-
makers yesterday that peace with Syria would require a full withdrawal from the
Golan Heights and ordered a review of the contentious West Bank separation barrier.
Sharon's comments on the Golan, made to parliament's Defense and Foreign
Affairs Committee, were an unprecedented admission by the career hard-liner. In the
past, right-wing Israeli governments insisted a peace deal could be reached without a
withdrawal from the strategic plateau captured in the 1967 Mideast war.
The prime minister did not tell the closed-door meeting whether he was
willing to pay what he defined as the price for peace. However, one com-
mittee member said it was clear from the context that Sharon is not ready to
return the Golan in exchange for a peace deal.
Also yesterday, the Hamas founder announced a change in strategy, saying the
Islamic militant group would increasingly recruit female suicide bombers. Last week,
Hamas sent its first female assailant, a 22-year-old woman who blew herself up at the
Gaza-Israel crossing and killed four Israeli border guards.

Episcopalian faction to
establish protest group
Conservative Episcopalians opposed
to a gay bishop's consecration and other
liberal trends were on track to establish a
nationwide protest organization by the
close of a two-day meeting today.
Planners insist the budding Network of
Anglican Communion Dioceses and
Parishes is not a schism or denomination-
al split but a "church within a church"
whose backers will remain Episcopalians.
The immediate cause of dissent was
the Episcopal Church's decision last
summer to elevate Bishop V Gene
Robinson of New Hampshire, who has
lived for years with a gay partner.
But the meeting's chairman, Bish-
op Robert~Duncan of Pittsburgh,,
told a news briefing that the denom-
ination "split from its own history
this past summer, so who left?"

get tested for the leg disease, called
peripheral arterial disease or PAD.
Severe PAD can lead to amputation.
Worse, if your leg arteries are clogged
and stiff, your heart arteries are too.
Having PAD quadruples your risk of a
heart attack or stroke, important to
know so you can seek protective treat-
ment.Anybody can get PAD. At least 12
million Americans are thought to have
it, most of them undiagnosed.
Janklow resigns prior
to court sentencing
Whether they loved him or hated him
South Dakotans will notice when Rep.
Bill Janlow leaves the political stage he
has dominated for nearly three decades.
Janklow's resignation from Congress
takes effect today, six week after the for-
mer four-term Republican governor was
convicted of manslaughter, speeding and
running a stop sign in an Aug. 16.acci
dent that killed a motorcyclist.
On Thursday, Janklow, 64, will be
sentenced and could get a maximum
of just over 11 years in prison.
Whatever the legal penalty, his
remarkable public life is over.
" I just wish we could wave a magic
wand and make this all go away and end
his career on a positive note;' said Har-
vey Woliman, a Democrat who preceded
Janklow as governor.

High cout Study: Most diabetics
_ risking pDoor health

to rule on
WASHINGTON (AP) - An inter-
rogator begins questioning an al-Qaida
prisoner who may know of a pending
attack. The captive turns to his lawyer,
who tells him that he can remain silent.
The suspect clams up.
The scenario is the Bush administra-
tion's legal nightmare, but there is signif-
icant concern that it could come true. The
Supreme Court will decide this year
whether U.S.-designated "enemy com-
batants" can be detained indefinitely
without lawyers and hearings.
"Any lawyer worth his salt will say
(to a client), 'Don't say anything
because it can be used against you,'
said Lee Casey, a Justice Department
lawyer in the Reagan and first Bush
Several former Justice Department
officials and the former highest-ranking
Army lawyer said if the Supreme Court
sides with the combatants, it could be
devastating for intelligence-gathering.
"It'~s vital to national security to inter-
rogate individuals and obtain informa-
tion about threats, including immediate
threats to our country," said Alice Fish-
er, who recently left the Justice Depart-
ment as a deputy assistant attorney
general overseeing counterterrorism
cases. "A private attorney may stunt the
ability to get vital information."
There are two U.S. citizens being held
as enemy combatants, while more than
600 suspected al-Qaida and Taliban
fighters are detained at the U. S. Navy
base in Guantanamo, Cuba.

There's grim news on the diabetes
front: Nearly two-thirds of diabetics
aren't properly controlling their blood
sugar. And one in three older diabetics
likely also has a serious leg disease that
could cost their limb.
This year, specialists for the first time
are urging every diabetic older than 50 to
