RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) - At
the United Nations yesterday, the United
States vetoed a Security Council resolu-
tion that would have condemned Israel's1
assassination of Hamas leader Ahmed
Yassin, because it made no mention of
"terrorist atrocities" committed by 1
Also, 60 prominent Palestinians urged
their people yesterday not to retaliate for
Israel's killing of the Hamas founder, but
instead to transform the 3 1/2-year-old
violent uprising into a peaceful protest
A call for restraint came from a sec-
ond direction yesterday - relatives of a
Palestinian youth caught with a suicide
bomber's vest at an Israeli roadblock
demanded that militants stop recruiting j
In the most serious incident since the1
assassination of Hamas founder Sheik j
Ahmed Yassin on Monday, Israeli forcesI
killed three Palestinians who opened firej
on a civilian car and an Israeli outpost at
a Jewish settlement in Gaza late yester-
day, the military said.
After the shootings, Israeli tanks and
bulldozers entered the area late yester-
day. Palestinian security officials said 15
Israeli vehicles, including tanks and
bulldozers, moved about 400 yards into
areas next to the town of Deir el-Balah.
Two Israeli helicopters were hovering
over the scene, they said.
Despite the appeals for restraint, the
Hamas military wing yesterday issued a
rare videotaped statement, threatening
retaliation against Israelis in graphic
terms, after marking Israeli Prime Min-
ster Ariel Sharon as a target.
The statement pledged "a strong, earth-
shaking response to make the sons of
monkeys and pigs taste a painful death."
In the videotape, given to the Dubai-
based Al-Arabiya TV channel, a masked
man declared, "We say to the pig Sharon
that we will pound your fortresses and
make you curse yourself 1,000 times for
merely thinking of assassinating our lead-
ers and symbols."
However, some Palestinians are ques-
tioning whether violent resistance has
done them more harm then good. Their
economy has been decimated. Israeli
checkpoints, closures and other restric-
tions, which Israel says are necessary to
stop attackers, have made their lives
Since violence erupted in September
2000, 2,762 people have been killed on
the Palestinian side and 942 on the
Israeli side - but Palestinians are hard
pressed to show any accomplishments.
Yesterday, a group of respected Pales-
tinians put a half-page advertisement in
the PLO's Al-Ayyam newspaper calling
on Palestinians to lay down their arms
and turn to peaceful means of protest
toward ending Israel's occupation of the
West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Similar calls in the past have had little
impact on public opinion, and yester-
day's ad was greeted with little enthusi-
asm by many Palestinians.

Senate passes bill protecting fetuses
The Senate voted yesterday to make it a separate crime to harm a Cetus during the
commission of a violent federal crime, a victory for those seeking to expand the legal
rights of the unborn. The 61 to 38 vote on the Unborn Victims of Violence Act sends
the legislation, after a five-year battle in Congress, to President Bush for his signa-
ture. The White House said in a statement that it "strongly supports protection for
unborn children." The House passed the bill last month.
Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn) said the bill was "powerful because
this act is about simple humanity, about simple reality."
But abortion rights lawmakers contended that giving a fetus, from the point of
conception, the same legal rights as its mother sets a precedent that could be used
in future legal challenges to abortion rights. It was the second big win for social
conservatives pushing protections for the unborn following enactment of the so-
called partial birth abortion ban last year. That ban is now tied up in the courts.
The Senate cleared the way for passage with a 50 to 49 vote to defeat an
amendment, backed by opponents of the bill, that would have increased penalties
but maintained that an attack on a pregnant woman was a single-victim crime.

Rebels and the main opposition party pulled out of Ivory Coast's power-sharing
government yesterday after 25 people died in deadly clashes between security
forces and opposition supporters, who marched in defiance of a government ban.
The street skirmishes were the bloodiest to hit this West African nation's com-
mercial capital since a failed September 2002 coup bid split the country in two.
Among the dead were two police and 12 civilians killed by protesters armed
with machetes, Abidjan Police Chief Yapo Kouassi told reporters. Security forces
struggling to maintain order shot dead several others, he said, giving no details.
Amid the violence, Air France suspended flights to the country, and the French
Foreign Ministry called on all parties to show restraint. There are about 4,000
French soldiers in the Ivory Coast.
The events dealt a serious blow to the January 2003 peace deal brokered by
France that established a power-sharing government.
"We have suspended our participation in the government to protest against
today's killings," rebel spokesman Alain Lobognon said.

Al-Qaida tape calls
for Pakistani revolt
A tape purportedly recorded by
Ayman al-Zawahri, the No. 2 figure in
the al-Qaida terror group, called Pak-
istani President Pervez Musharraf a
"traitor" yesterday and urged people
to overthrow his government.
The pan-Arab satellite channel Al-
Jazeera broadcast a seven-minute
excerpt from a tape it received yesterday.
Its authenticity could not immediately
be verified, but the speaker sounded like
al-Zawahri and made references to the
Islamic holy book, the Quran, which is
known to be al-Zawahri's style.
The speaker also called for a military
uprising in Pakistan.
FBI director warns
of Olympic attacks
Emboldened by their deadly suc-
cess in Spain, terrorists could attempt
to influence the U.S. election and
shock the world by launching attacks
during this year's presidential nominat-
ing conventions or at the Olympics in
Greece, FBI Director Robert Mueller
"We understand that between now and
the election, there is a window of time in
which terrorists may well wish to influ-
ence events, whether it's in the United
States or overseas," Mueller said.
He also said that Islamic extremists are
changing tactics to focus on recruitment
of local sympathizers less likely to arouse
suspicion than outsiders.
And terrorist groups may well move
away from fortified targets, such as air-
ports and government buildings, he said.
