]5, killed i
Imbn of
embassy
Los Angeles Times
NEW DELHI, India-With the dev-
astating car bombing of the Egyptian
Embassy in Pakistan yesterday, Islamic
hard-liners battling the Cairo govern-
ment have apparently carried their ter-
ror campaign to foreign soil.
Pakistani Foreign Minister Sardar
Aseff Ahmad All said the "dastardly"
attack in the capital, Islamabad, which
killed 15 people and left scores more
inijured, was the work of a suicide
bpmber"who may have blasted his way
tbrough the gate and exploded his pickup
truck ."
y:Egypt's most extreme fundamental-
ist group, the Gamaa al Islamiya (Is-
lamic Group), claimed responsibility
for the most destructive and deadly
onslaught on Egyptian interests over-
seas since the group launched an armed
struggle against the govemnmentin 1992.
L~ater, two other groups, Islamic Jihad
and the International Group for Justice,
also claimed responsibility.
In Egypt yesterday, Prime Minister
Atef Sedki denounced the "criminal
act" in Islamabad and called all nations
to unite to confront "international ter-
f trism."
The explosion, at about 9:30 a.m. on
a working day in mostly Muslim Paki-
stan, sheared off a huge chunk of the
two-story building's front wall and
gouged a crater 10 feet deep and 20 feet
wide inside the compound.
At least 59 people, including security
wuards and Pakistanis applying for vi-
sas, were injured, the Egyptian Foreign
Ministry said.
The blast was so intense that it seri-
ously damaged the Japanese Embassy
about 100 feet away, blowing in win-
dows on the north side and injuring

Four Cornell sftudents not
pumished for offensive e-mail

By Zachary M. Ralmi
Daily Staff Reporter
Cornell University decided late
Thursday night not to punish four first-
year students who wrote an offensive e-
mail, saying the students did not violate
Cornell's Code of Conduct.
The students did agree, however, to
do community service, participate in a
workshop and formally apologize to
administrators.
In October, the students composed a
list of "75 reasons why women (bitches)
should not have freedom of speech" and
distributed it to 20 friends via e-mail.
The students said the message was meant
as a joke, and that they did not intend for it to
be forwarded by the20 recipients. However,
the message was forwarded all over the
campus and country.
A spokeswoman for Cornell said sev-
eral members of the university commu-
nity filed complaints under their Code
of Conduct. The complaints were under
two separate sections of the code: sexual
harassment and misuse of the
university's computer resources.

Cornell judicial administrator Barbara
L. Krause, who made the ruling, said in a
statement that the students did not violate
either of these two parts of the code.
"Sexual harassment requires conduct
that is directed at an individual or group,
or conduct that creates a hostile environ-
ment. The authors of 75 Reasons,' how-
ever, did not direct the list at anyone with
the purpose or effect of offending those
recipients.... Moreover, distributing the
list to a handful of friends did not create a
hostile environment," Krause said.
And in response to the charge that the
students misused the university's com-
puting system, she said that the
university's policies "do not prohibit
hate speech."
"To the contrary, they reaffirm the
concept of free speech and recognize
that certain offensive messages may
have to be tolerated in a community
which values the right of all to speak
freely," she said.
Jacqui Powers, a spokeswoman for
Cornell, said Friday that campus reac-
tion to the ruling was mixed "because

not everyone immediately understood
the two aspects of the resolution."
Powers was referring to the three-
part agreement between the adminis-
tration and the four students. The stu-
dents each will perform 50 hours of
community service - most likely at a
local sexual assault clinic - attend a
workshop on sexual sensitivity and for-
mally apologize to Cornell's senior ad-
ministrators in person.
Administrators said the agreement
was not a plea-bargain by the students,
but a gesture of atonement.
"The students themselves recognize
that they have caused great anger and hurt
to many people," Krause said.
The e-mail's authors - Rikus
Linschoten, Brian Waldman, Evan Camps
and Patrick Sicer- published a letter of
apology in Cornell's student newspaper,
The Cornell Daily Sun, earlierthismonth.
"We had no idea that we were really
being taken seriously and seriously of-
fending people until we received a let-
ter from a young woman who had been
sexually assaulted," the students wrote.

explosion yesterday at the diplomatic compound in Islambad, Pakistan.

Bosnia peace talks%, to condlude today

three Japanese and eight local employ-
ees with flying glass.
Retired Gen. Nasirullah Khan Babar,
Pakistan's interior minister, inspected
the damage and assured reporters that
security outside other embassies in the
capital would be tightened.
The Egyptian Embassy is about a
half-mile from the U.S. embassy in the
capital. American diplomats drive by it
to get to work.
Security at the razor-wire-ringed U.S.
compound was tightened after three
American consular workers were
gunned down in a March 8 street am-
bush in the troubled port city of Karachi.
In light of yesterday's bombing, "we' re
reviewing all of our security arrange-
ments," embassy press attache Jack

McCreary said.
Babar downplayed any connection
between yesterday's blast and last
week's fatal attack on a U.S.-run train-
ing center for the Saudi Arabian na-
tional guard in that country's capital,
Riyadh.
Since the Gamaa al Islamiya began
its violent campaign against Mubarak
three years ago, it has targeted top Egyp-
tian government officials, police offic-
ers, Coptic Christians, foreign tourists
and secular intellectuals.
Confronted with the terrorist threats
and deeds, Mubarak's government has
responded fiercely. Thousands of sus-
pects have been arrested and hundreds
sent before military tribunals, which
have sentenced 67 to death by hanging.

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -The Bosnia
peace talks will conclude today with
either the initialing of an accord to end
a 43-war month war in the former
Yugoslav republic or with a breakdown
in efforts to settle it, a State Department
spokesman said yesterday.
At least four major issues are settled,
The Associated Press was told.
A draft provides for a collective presi-
dency, with ethnic groups sharing au-
thority; separation of rival armies with
a demilitarized zone four kilometers
wide; U.S. arming of the Bosnian army
and the Bosnian Serbs' retaining con-
trol of Srebrenica and Zepa, two Mus-

lim enclaves seized by the Serbs, U.S.
officials said.
The Muslims, meanwhile, would re-
tain Gorazde, another enclave that was
on the verge of falling to the Serbs
before NATO air strikes prompted a
cease-fire Oct. 5.
"We just feel that after 19 days the
parties have had a lot of time to debate
these issues," spokesman Nicholas
Burns said as Secretary of State Warren
Christopher met again with Serbian
President Slobodan Milosevic.
With signs pointing to a successful
outcome, Burns said "it could go either
way." He said Milosevic, Bosnian Presi-

dent Alija Izetbegovic and Croatian
President Franjo Tudj man, who was
due to return from Zagreb last night,
"truly want a comprehensive agree-
ment."
Other U.S. officials said several dis-
puted issues were either resolved or
close to settlement. "It all depends on
the map," one of the officials, demand-
ing anonymity, told The Associated
Press.
Talks that began Saturday ended at
3:30 a.m. yesterday, an 18-hour work
day for many of the mediators and
participants, with "significant differ-
ences."W
