Israeli leaders vow to renew talks

JERUSALEM (AP) - Israeli lead-
ers told Secretary of State Colin Powell
yesterday that they will do their utmost
to allow Palestinian elections to take
place, including easing travel restric-
tions in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
In a sign of improving ties after four
years of Mideast fighting, Israeli offi-
cials also said they are willing to renew
talks with the Palestinians on some
issues, including security, and to coor-
dinate the aftermath of Israel's planned
withdrawal from Gaza and parts of the
West Bank in 2005.
Israel had refused to negotiate with
Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.
Arafat's death Nov. 11 provided a
"moment of opportunity that should not
be lost," Powell said.
He told Israeli Prime Minister Ariel
Sharon and Foreign Minister Silvan
Shalom that the United States wants to
seize the moment, and to make sure Pal-
estinian presidential elections are held
Jan. 9, as planned.
Later yesterday, Powell met with Pal-
estinian officials in the West Bank town
of Jericho and visited a voter registra-
tion office there.
Palestinian officials asked Powell to
ensure that Israel withdraws troops from
West Bank population centers ahead of
the elections. They said he did not pass
along any specific Israeli commitments

regarding the vote.
Shalom said it is in Israel's interest to
see the Palestinian elections go forward.
"The first priority is the Palestinian elec-
tion which will hopefully bring about a
Palestinian leadership with whom we
can sit down and address all the issues
on our agenda," he said after a meeting
with Powell.
"I have reassured the secretary today
that Israel will do everything in its
power to ensure their smooth running,"
he said.
Shalom did not say whether Israel
would pull back troops.
He said the Palestinians would have
"freedom of movement" in the run-up
to the elections. He said Israel would
coordinate the arrangements with the
Palestinians but would not compromise
on security.
An Israeli official, speaking on condi-
tion of anonymity, said Shalom also told
Powell that Israel is willing to resume
talks with the Palestinians on some
issues, including security.
Israel reoccupied West Bank towns
during a 2002 military offensive aimed
at halting Palestinian suicide bombings
in Israel. Troops have since withdrawn
from some areas, but continue to enforce
travel restrictions on Palestinians. Pales-
tinians say they need freedom of move-
ment for the vote.
Arrest
made in
hunter
deaths
BIRCH WOOD, Wis. (AP) - A deer
hunter shot and killed five people and
wounded three others after he was spot-
ted on private land and was asked to
leave, authorities said.
A 36-year-old man was arrested Sun-
day afternoon when he came out of the
woods after the shootings during the
hunt's opening weekend, sheriff's offi-
cials said. Two of the wounded were in
critical condition yesterday.
Deputy Jake Hodgkinson identified
the suspect as Chai Vang but would give
no details. Vang is from St. Paul, Minn.,
said Paul Schnell, a spokesman for the
St. Paul police department.
The victims were part of a larger
group hunting near a rural cabin on
private land in Sawyer County in north-
western Wisconsin.
One hunter spotted someone in their
tree stand, a raised platform in a tree
used by hunters, and he and several oth-
ers approached the man and asked him
to leave, Sawyer County Sheriff James
Meier said yesterday.
The man got down from the stand
and was walking away, then "for some
apparent reason he turned and opened
fire on them," Meier said.
One hunter radioed to others in
the party for help, and more people
were shot as they arrived on all-ter-
rain vehicles to rescue the first group,
authorities said. Someone in the
group wrote the suspect's hunting
license number, which hunters wear
on their clothing, by tracing it on a
dirty vehicle, Meier said.
"It's absolutely nuts. Why? Over sit-
ting in a tree stand?" Chief Deputy Tim
Zeigle said earlier.
Zeigle said the suspect was "chas-
ing after them and killing them," with
an SKS 7.62 mm semiautomatic rifle.
Wisconsin's statewide deer gun hunt-

ing season started Saturday and lasts for
nine days.
About 20 shots were fired but it was
unclear if any of the hunters had fired
at the man or who might have shot
first, Zeigle said. There was just one
gun among the eight people killed or
wounded, he said.
The dead included a woman and a
father and his 20-year-old son, Zeigle
said. Some of the victims were shot
more than once. All five were from the
Rice Lake area, about 15 miles south-
west of Birchwood in northwestern
Wisconsin, he said.
Authorities found two bodies near
each other and the others were scattered
over 100 yards.
The suspect, who did not have a
compass, got lost in the woods and two
other hunters who didn't know about the
shootings helped him find his way out,
Zeigle said.
The man was arrested when he
emerged from the woods and a Depart-
ment of Natural Resources officer rec-
ognized the deer license on his back
from a description given by one of the
shooting victims, Zeigle said. The man
was out of ammunition, he said.
One of the injured hunters was in crit-
ical condition yesterday at St. Joseph's
Hospital in Marshfield. Another was in

NEWS IN BRIEF
BAGHDAD, Iraq
Allawi: Few will boycottJan. election
Iraq's interim prime minister said yesterday he's confident only a small number of
people will boycott the Jan. 30 elections despite anger among many Sunni Muslims
over the Fallujah offensive and a deadly U.S.-Iraqi raid on a Baghdad mosque.
"The forces of darkness and terrorism will not benefit from this democratic
experience and will fight it," Ayad Allawi told The Associated Press. "But we are
determined that this experiment succeeds."
Allawi spoke as violence raged in the capital and other cities, and U.S. officials
said a bomb was discovered on a commercial flight inside Iraq. Gunmen in the
north assassinated a prominent election opponent, and five decapitated bodies were
discovered south of the capital. Insurgents ambushed a U.S. convoy in western
Baghdad, but there were no reports of casualties.
A U.S. soldier died yesterday of wounds suffered in an attack in Baghdad the
night before. The Pentagon also announced yesterday that three Marines wounded
in Fallujah have died, raising the U.S. death toll in the offensive to at least 54. At
least 1,227 members of the U.S. military have died since the beginning of the Iraq
war in March 2003, according to an AP count.

Tens of thousands of demonstrators jammed downtown Kiev yesterday night
denouncing Ukraine's presidential runoff election as fraudulent and chanting the name
of their reformist candidate who authorities said was trailing in the vote count.
Viktor Yushchenko stood beaming on a platform with campaign aides and flashec
a "V" for victory sign - even though the Central Election Commission said earliei
that with nearly all the votes counted, he was losing to Kremlin-backed Prime Min-
ister Viktor Yanukovych.
"Yushchenko - our president!" chanted the crowd, many of whom waved orange
scarves - his campaign color in Independence Square.

CHICAGO
McDonald's CEO resigns due to cancer
McDonald's Corp. CEO Charlie Bell, who was diagnosed with colorectal cancer
in May, resigned yesterday to focus on his battle with the disease, forcing the com-
pany to make a sudden leadership switch for the second time in seven months.
The fast food giant named vice chairman Jim Skinner as its new CEO, and
the board elected Mike Roberts, CEO of McDonald's USA, to the position of
president and chief operating officer.
"Charlie is a remarkable leader and well loved by the McDonald's family, and
we fully understand and respect his decision," McDonald's chairman Andrew
McKenna said in a statement.
Bell will remain on the company's board of directors, company spokesman
Walt Riker said. Bell, 44, was diagnosed with cancer soon after succeeding Jim
Cantalupo in April, when Cantalupo died of an apparent heart attack. Bell has
missed significant time at work because of the cancer.
TEHRAN, Iran
U.N. agency: Iran nuclear enrichment ended
Iran announced yesterday it has suspended uranium enrichment, and the head of
the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency said he believed all Iran's enrichment activities
have stopped, the central part of an agreement with Europe designed to head off
possible U.N. sanctions.
The suspension fulfills a pledge Iran made earlier this month and came days ahead
of a key meeting of the agency's board to judge Tehran's compliance with the agency's
investigation into nearly two decades of hidden nuclear activities.
If the International Atomic Energy Agency rules that Iran is honoring its com-
mitment to suspend enrichment, it will be a setback to U.S. hopes of referring Iran I
to the U.N. Security Council, a step that could lead to sanctions.
Iranian state-run radio made a brief announcement of the suspension yesterday,
saying it aimed "to build confidence."
