2)  World news roundup


Delegates from 160 nations opened a U.N. conference on global warming
today in Kyoto, Japan. Over the next 10 days, the negotiators will try to
agree on a plan to reduce emissions of gases believed to contribute to
global warming. The United States wants to bring emissions down to 1990
levels by sometime between 2008 and 2012, and it wants developing nations
to cut their emissions. The European Union wants pollution 15 percent
below 1990 levels by 2010. Developing nations, meanwhile, say their
economies should not have to suffer to solve a problem caused, in large
part, by the past policies of industrialized countries.


Israel’s Cabinet agreed Sunday to a conditional withdrawal of soldiers from
part of the West Bank, but Palestinian officials said Israel should not put
conditions on a move it already promised in an accord signed in January.
Israel set no date for the pullout, did not specify how much territory it
would turn over to the Palestinian Authority, and said the withdrawal would
happen only if Palestinians do more to fight terrorism. The existing
agreement requires Israel to withdraw troops in three stages by mid-1998.


Iraq abandoned its demand that the United Nations drop all economic
sanctions and agreed Saturday to renew the food-for-oil deal that lets Iraq
export oil only to buy humanitarian supplies. … A woman who was injured
by a falling light pole during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade remained
in critical condition Sunday. … Coleman Young, who retired in 1993 after
an unprecedented five terms as mayor of Detroit, died Saturday of
respiratory problems at the age of 79.
