and a truck accident prevented

Opponents of Syria have
blamed the regime in Damas-
cus for the al-Hassan's killing
in a Beirut car bomb on Friday.
With Lebanon already tense and
deeply divided over the civil war
next door, the assassination has
threatened to drag the country
back into the kind of sectarian
strife that plagued it for decades
- much of it linked to Syria.
In the Lebanese capital, sol-
diers backed by armored personal
carriers with heavy machine
guns took up position on major
thoroughfares and dismantled
roadblocks. At times, troops
exchanged gunfire with Sunni
Al-Hassan was a Sunni who
challenged Syria and its pow-
erful Lebanese ally, the Shiite
militant group Hezbollah. The
uprising in Syria is dominated
by the Sunni majority fighting
Syrian President Bashar Assad,
who like many in his regime is a
member of the Alawite sect - an
offshoot of Shiite Islam. Lebanon
and Syria share similar sectarian
divides that have fed tensions in
both countries.
Most of Lebanon's Sunnis have
backed Syria's mainly Sunni reb-
els, while Lebanese Shiites tend
to back Assad.
The assassination has imper-
iled Lebanon's fragile political
balance. Many politicians blamed
Damascus for the killing and
angry protesters tried to storm
the government palace after
al-Hassan's funeral on Sunday,
venting their rage at leaders they
consider puppets of a murderous
Syrian regime. But were pushed
back by troops who opened fire in
the air and lobbed volleys of tear
Meanwhile, cease-fire efforts
by U.N. and Arab League envoy to
Syria Lakhdar Brahimi appeared
to be faltering.

Brian Jones was given six
months of community control,
which strictly limits his free-
dom with measures including
frequent check-ins with proba-
tion officials. Following that, the
23-year-old from Parrish, Fla.,
will serve another two years of
probation. He's also required to
perform 200 hours of commu-
nity service.
Judge Marc Lubet said Jones's
role in the hazing death of Robert
Champion was relatively mini-
mal and that Jones did not beat
or hit Champion. Champion died
last November after being beaten
by fellow band members dur-
ing a hazing ritual aboard a bus
parked outside an Orlando hotel
after a football game.
"This young man's part in
this horrible act ... as compared

with many others from what I've
seen is minimal," Lubet said. "It
was an isolated incident in this
man's life for which he's shown

Adamson noted that only two
of the 90 witnesses even said he
was on the bus.
Eleven other band members
are awaiting trial on felony haz-
ing charges, while another band
member faces a misdemeanor
hazing count.
Jones had entered ano-contest
plea Oct. 9 to the third-degree
felony hazing charge after ini-
tially pleading not guilty. The
maximum penalty for the charge
was five years in prison.
Champion's parents 'and
friends say the drum major was
a vocal opponent of hazing, but
finally relented last November
and got aboard "Bus C," which
was known for hazing.

Pam Champion challenged the
idea that his role had been minor,

not true. You played a critical

pion with her to the podium
before she spoke.

"You won't be able to put it out
if your mind...It will haunt you,"
she told Jones.
Jones said in a recorded
audio statement with investiga-
tors that he was on the bus when
another hazing victim - Lis-
sette Sanchez - went through
the ritual. But Jones told police
that he only retrieved his light-
er and left to smoke, getting off
the bus before Champion got

queline Jones, told the court

Brian Jones tearfully apolo-
gized to the Champion family
in court.
"No family should have to
go through what you've gone
through," he said.
After the sentencing, Pam
Champion said she gave Jones
credit for "taking responsibil-
ity" in the case.
"Initially my reaction was
disappointment, but I do under-
stand," she said. "The mere fact
that Brian stepped up and took
the initiative, which should be
