Students travel to D.C. for protest

University students united
with protesters from across the
country in Washington, D.C. in
opposition to United States mili-
tary intervention in the Carib-
bean and Central America.
Michigan students made up
120 of the 50,000 demonstra-
tors, gathering first near the State'
Department for speakers and
music before marching to the
White House.
"Most people here already
know the problems," said gradu-
ate student Patrick Jones. "Oth-
ers need to be convinced that the
blood of the people of Nicaragua
is on their hands."

After 65 years in Ann Arbor,
Drake's Sandwich Shop on North
University Avenue closed unex-
pectedly.
Owner Truman Tibbals had
recently been diagnosed with
cancer and his children made the
decision to close the shop.
Drake's was known for its
archaic interior and famously
named sandwiches the "Michi-
gan," "Purdue," and "Northwest-
ern," among others.
TEN YEARS AGO THIS
WEEK (NOV. 17,2003):
The University received a fed-
eral grant of $421,589 to conduct
virtual reality simulations to

train first responders in emergen-
cy medical situations.
The money from the Centers
for Disease Control and Preven-
tion went to the University's Vir-
tual Reality CAVE to fund the
disaster simulation program.
"People who are very profes-
sional, well-trained through
lectures, low-level drills - like
disaster drills where people will
have pinned on them, 'my leg
is broken,' - and other regular
training exercises may not per-
form optimally when they are
actually immersed in the chaos
of a real-life disaster," said James
Woolliscoft, then executive asso-
ciate dean of the Medical School.

HUED,,

Francois Bochud, director of
Switzerland's Institute of Radi-
ation Physics, which carried out
the investigation, said at a news
conference.
Bochud and Patrice Mangin,
director of the Lausanne Uni-
versity Hospital's forensics cen-
ter, said they tested and ruled
out innocent explanations, such
as accidental poisoning.
"I think we can eliminate this
possibility because, as you can
imagine, you cannot find poloni-
um everywhere. It's a very rare
toxic substance," Mangin told
The Associated Press.
Palestinian officials, includ-
ing Arafat's successor, Pales-
tinian President Mahmoud
Abbas, had no comment on the
substance of the report but
promised a continued investi-
gation.
The findings are certain to
revive Palestinian allegations
against Israel, a nuclear power.
Polonium can be a byproduct of
the chemical processing of ura-
nium, but usually is made arti-
ficially in a nuclear reactor or a
particle accelerator.
Arafat's widow, Suha, called
on the Palestinian leadership
to seek justice for her hus-
band, saying, "It's clear this is a
crime."
Speaking by phone from the
Qatari capital Doha, she did
not mention Israel but argued
that only countries with nuclear
capabilities have access to polo-
nium.
In another interview later
Thursday, she described her
husband's death as a "political
assassination" and "the crime of
the century" and called the new
testing conclusive for poisoning.
She said she couldn't predict
who was behind the death, but
she added, "Whoever did this
crime is a coward."
Israel has repeatedly denied
a role in Arafat's death and
did so again Thursday. Paul
Hirschson, a Foreign Ministry
official, dismissed the claim as
"hogwash."

Residents walk beside a large ship that was washed ashore by strong waves caused by Typhoon Haiyan in Tacloban city,
Leyte province central Philippines on Sunday
Typhoonz survvors struggle
for aid in the Philippines

Death toll estimated
at 10,000 in worst
storm in country's
history
TACLOBAN, Philippines
(AP) - Rescuers faced blocked
roads and damaged airports on
Monday as they raced to deliver
desperately needed tents, food
and medicines to the typhoon-
devastated eastern Philippines
where thousands are believed
dead.
Three days after the Typhoon
Haiyan ravaged the region, the
full scale of the disaster - the
biggest faced by the Philip-
pines - was only now becoming
apparent.
The winds and the sea waves
whipped up were so strong
that they washed hulking
ships inland, which now stood
incongruously amid debris of
buildings, trees, road signs and
people's belongings.
Authorities estimated that up
to 10,000 people may have died.
But the government, stunned by

w

the scale of the disaster, has not
given an official death toll yet.
Still, officials said after survey-
ing the areas there is little doubt
that the death toll will be that
high, or even higher.
In Tacloban city, the capital
of Leyte province, corpses hung
from trees and were scattered
on sidewalks. Many were bur-
ied in flattened buildings. The
entire city appeared to have
been obliterated. From the air
the landscape resembled a giant
garbage dump punctuated by a
few concrete buildings that still
stood.
Survivors wandered through
the remains of their flattened
wooden homes looking to sal-
vage belongings or to search for
loved ones.
Very little assistance had
reached the city, residents
reported. Some took food, water
and consumer goods from aban-
doned shops, malls and homes.
"This area has been totally
ravaged", said Sebastien Sujob-
ert, head of the International
Committee of the Red Cross in
Tacloban. "Many lives were lost,
a huge number of people are

missing, and basic services such
as drinking water and electricity
have been cut off," he said.
He said both the Philippine
Red Cross and the ICRC offices
in Tacloban had been damaged,
forcing staff to relocate tempo-
rarily.
Haiyan hit the eastern sea-
board of the Philippines on Fri-
day and quickly barreled across
its central islands, packing winds
of 235 kph (147 mph) that gusted
to 275 kph (170 mph), and a storm
surge of 6 meters (20 feet).
Even though authorities had
evacuated some 800,000 people
ahead of the typhoon, the death
toll was so high because many
evacuation centers - brick-and-
mortar schools, churches and
government buildings - could
not withstand the winds and
water surges. Officials said peo-
ple who had huddled in these
buildings drowned or were
swept away.
It inflicted serious damage to
at least six islands in the middle
of the eastern seaboard, with
Leyte, Samar and the northern
part of Cebu appearing to bear
the brunt of the storm. About 4
