NEWS REPORT

1) World news roundup

JUST CAN’T SHAKE THOSE KOSOVO BLUES

Thursday marked the ninth day of NATO’s bombardment of Serbian targets in
Yugoslavia, but the most attention in the United States has been focused on
three American soldiers captured by Yugoslav forces near the Macedonian border
on Wednesday. Serbia announced plans to bring the soldiers before a military
court Friday, drawing a quick response from the USA that such a move would
violate international law. It is not clear whether the soldiers were captured
inside Macedonia or Yugoslavia. Thursday also saw the crossing of some 22,000
new Kosovar refugees into Albania, bringing the total number of displaced
ethnic Albanians to as many as 150,000 or more. … The four white New York
City police officers who killed Amadou Diallo, an unarmed Guinean immigrant,
with a barrage of bullets on February 4 were each indicted with second-degree
murder in the Bronx County Courthouse on Thursday. The officers all pleaded
innocent. … Peace talks in Northern Ireland, which had been going around the
clock since Monday night, were adjourned on Thursday until April 13, marking
the most recent sign of trouble of last year’s Good Friday accords. …
According to the American Automobile Association, gasoline prices have jumped
an average of over eleven cents across the country in the last two weeks,
putting an end to the long run of extremely low prices that car owners have
enjoyed.

INDECISION, VICTORY, AND MORE INJURIES…

Jim Harrick isn’t quite sure what he wants these days.  On Wednesday, he was
introduced as new head coach of Georgia basketball, only to change his mind
and
stay with Rhode Island. Then on Thursday he changed his mind yet again and
reaccepted Georgia’s offer. Only time will tell what he will do next. …Karl
Malone pulled up with the game winning jumper with 2.7 ticks left to give the
Utah Jazz an 88-87 win over the Houston Rockets. …The Nets suffered their
biggest loss in a season of losses Thursday, when Jayson Williams broke his
right leg during New Jersey’s 90-85 win over the Atlanta Hawks. …Christian
Laettner broke a rib, but that didn’t stop his Detrot Pistons from routing the
Chicago Bulls 107-75.
