1) World news roundup


Pentagon spokesman Ken Bacon admitted yesterday that a U.S. missile had
missed its target on Monday, striking an Iraqi civilian neighborbood, but
emphasized that the United States is “not targeting civilians.” Iraq claims
that eleven citizens were killed by three missiles, though the United
States has admitted error in the flight of only one. U.S. forces continued
to bomb Iraq on Tuesday, concentrating on five sites in the no-flight zone.
U.S. and British officials say they intend to continue their policy of air
strikes on individual anti-aircraft sites in retaliation for Iraqi fire on
American planes.

The Senate is expected to vote today on whether to allow witnesses in
President Clinton’s impeachment trial. House prosecutor Henry Hyde called
yesterday for testimonies from Monica Lewinsky, Vernon Jordan, and White
House aide Sidney Blumenthal, as well as requesting that Clinton himself
appear for questioning. If Senators vote to hear witnesses, one proposal
involves videotaping their depositions. Clinton’s lawyers claim that the
testimonies would be unneccesary, as each potential witness has already
been repeatedly interviewed.


The search for survivors continues in Columbia, where an earthquake killed
well over 600 people on Monday… NATO forces in Bosnia will be reduced by
10% within the next two months, according to White House sources… In a
move intended to soften the consequences of welfare reform, Vice President
Al Gore has proposed allocating $1.3 billion of the federal budget for aid
to legal immigrants. The money would be used for food stamps, health care,
and social security benefits.
