Hurricane Roxanne revisits Mexican coast

MEXICO CITY (AP) - A reborn
liurricane Roxanne took aim yesterday
at Mexico's southern Gulf coast, bear-
ing down with 85-mph winds on areas
the storm had sideswiped with heavy
winds and rain just days earlier.
Roxanne, which had been down-
graded to a tropical storm, was a cat-
egory 1 hurricane yesterday, the weak-
jst.n a scale of 1-5. The U.S. National
Hurricane Center in Miami issued a
hit icane warning, from Progreso to

Richard Pasch, a forecaster at the
hurricane center, said Tabasco and
Campeche states on the southern Gulf
rim could be inundated after having
been pounded by Roxanne and by Hur-
ricane Opal a week earlier.
"The big problem is that the dams are
right at the top and the grounds are
saturated," Pasch said. "There is a po-
tential for some serious flooding" in
Tabasco and Campeche.

At 5 p.m., Roxanne was located
about 135 miles north of Ciudad del
Carmen, moving away from that island
shrimping port and nearly stationary
with maximum sustained winds of 85
mph, the weather service said.
The storm was expected to move
slowly south or southwest, possibly
weakening slightly and touching the
Mexican coast at some point yesterday
night. Hurricane-force winds extended
115 miles from Roxanne's center.
The hurricane, which has meandered
erratically in the Gulf ofMexico during
the past three days, was expected to
turn more to the south, he said.
"This storm has made a big loop,"
Pasch said. "The waters have been
stirred up a bit by (the) hurricane cross-
ing its own path."
The National Weather Service said
the Mexican coast within the hurricane
warning area could get 6-8 inches of
rain and that storm-generated tides could
be 4-6 feet above normal.
In the Gulf city of Campeche, streets
were flooded yesterday and rain was
heavy, said Juan Yahvela, a reporter for
the newspaper El Sur de Campeche
there. Winds were picking up by late
yesterday afternoon..
"What we have is very high waves,"
Yahvela said in a telephone interview.

"(The hurricane) wants to stay in
Campeche to vacation. It wants to eat
Roxanne killed at least six people
and has driven tens of thousands from
their homes since slamming into the
resort island of Cozumel on Tuesday
with 110-mph winds.
President Ernesto Zedillo on Satur-
day visited storm-damaged areas of
Campeche and Tabasco states, where
thousands of people remain in shelters.
Health authorities were trying to keep
an outbreak of cholera from spreading
out of control in the flooded lowland
areas of the southern Gulf coast.
Campeche Gov. Jorge Salomon Azar
told the government's Notimex news
agency that more than 100 cargo trucks
were trapped by storm damage to a
major highway linking Yucatan Penin-
sula to the rest of Mexico. He said
repairs might take several days.
Roxanne is the Atlantic storm
season's 10th hurricane.
The U.S. National Hurricane Center
in Miami was also keeping a broad area
of cloudiness across Cuba to south
Florida under watch, said James Lewis
Free, a specialist there.
He said "conditions appear to be fa-
vorable" for the development of a cy-
clone there.

Nunn says U.S. has terrorist targets
WASHINGTON - Sen. Sam Nunn, one of the top authorities in Congress on
security and terrorism, warned yesterday that the United States has many inviting
and inadequately protected terrorist targets and should pay heed to Japan's painful
experience with the Aum Supreme Truth cult.
Nunn (D-Ga.) said a study by his staff shows that the Japanese cult, which is
accused in the deadly nerve gas attack on Tokyo's subways earlier this year, was
working to develop biological weapons and the means to deliver them. He said the
organization also was seeking nuclear technology.
"This gives us the message that we really have a real vulnerability out there
when groups like this that are willing to do the unthinkable are also able to get
unthinkable destructive power in their hands," Nunn said on the CBS program
"Face the Nation."
He said that before the subway attack, U.S. intelligence had detected no sign of
anything awry with Aum Supreme Truth and that the intelligence services could
not be depended on to provide adequate warning of such threats.

CIA seeks speedier
analysis of pictures
fromw Spy satellites
WASHINGTON - The sophisti-
cated system of U.S. spy satellites pro-
duces more images than can be pro-
cessed and analyzed as quickly as intel-
ligence officials want, congressional
and administration sources say.
Faced with what one key official de-
scribed as the need to decide whether to
collect less or analyze more, the intelli-
gence community has decided it must
upgrade its processing operations.
Central Intelligence Agency Direc-
tor John Deutch is studying a plan to
consolidate the image-analysis opera-
tions of the numerous military and in-
telligence agencies that order the satel-
lite pictures.
Now, every day at 3 p.m. in the first
floor ofa windowless building in north-
ern Virginia, a dozen people represent-
ing individual organizations in the in-
telligence community sit around a con-
ference table and decide which targets
the spy satellites should focus on dur-
ing the next 24 hours.
The targets are passed to officials at
the National Reconnaissance Office,
whose staff controls the four or five

sophisticated electro-optical and radar
satellites that race around the world in
low orbits.
Each spy satellite spends just min-
utes over target areas, a senior intelli-
gence official said.
Bosnia is targeted every day now but
other targets are studied as demanded.
English may become
Ohio's sole lagage
FIN DLAY, Ohio - Like a prosecu-
tor eager to share damning evidence,
state Rep. George E. Terwilleger shoves
a grainy Polaroid across his desk.
Some people might strain their eyes to
spot some irregularity in this shot of a
government building and a placard read-
ing, "Department of Human Services-
El Departamento de Servicios Humanos."
But Terwilleger sees such signs-of-
the-times asproofofmulticulturalchaos
to come.
In April, he introduced a bill that
would make Ohio the 23rd state to
declare English the sole language of
Abruptly, the self-described "famr
boy" found himself slugging it out on
the local front of a "culture war" issue
that has also seeped into the 1996 Re-
publican presidential race.

Fighting ebbs in
Bosnia after
exhausting battle
BANJA LUKA, Bosnia-Herzegovina
- Fighting ebbed yesterday in north-
western Bosnia where up to 50,000
exhausted Serbs were struggling to sur-
vive after fleeing advances by govern-
ment and Croat forces.
In a bitter twist in the 3 1/2-year-
long war, many of the refugees are
now at Omarska, site of one of the
most notorious prison camps set up
when Serb rebels overran much of
Bosnia in 1992.
A field hospital has been treating
both civilians and soldiers wounded in
the latest fighting. Aid workers say some
older refugees are dying, apparently
exhaustedafterbeing uprooted by rapid
shifts in front lines in northern Bosnia
in the past six weeks.
The U.S.-brokered truce that started
Thursday was largely observed through-
out the country, U.N. officials said yes-
terday. The Muslim-led Bosnian gov-
ernment claimed on Saturday that it
was halting its offensive, amid reports
Serbia had to threaten to send in the
Yugoslav army.
Government army commanders met
for five hours in the Bosnian capital late

Saturday and dispatched a senior of-
ficer to the bitterly contested north-
west, apparently to ensure that govern-
ment troops there observed the truce,
army sources said.
Islamic scholar wins
German prize
BERLIN - A pre-eminent scholar
of Islam accepted Germany's top liter-
ary prize yesterday, saying that critics
who claim she condones Muslim ex-
tremism have only hurt her efforts to
bridge a dangerous cultural divide.
Since Annemarie Schimmel was
named the award recipient in April,
hundreds of German intellectuals have
signed petitions or letters in protest,
primarily for her apparent sympathy for
Iran's 1989 death threat against British
author Salman Rushdie.
Rushdie's novel "The Satanic
Verses" was deemed blasphemous by
Islamic clerics. Rushdie has been living
in hiding ever since.
At yesterday's ceremony,
Schimmel, a 73-year-old Harvard
University professor emeritus, ac-
cepted the Peace Prize, saying that
she rejects "the sinister holy war"
against Rushdie, but also simplistic
Western preconceptions that equate
Islam with intolerance.
