1) World news roundup

Presidential candidate George W. Bush confirmed yesterday that he was arrested and pleaded guilty nearly 25 years ago to driving while under the influence of alcohol. Bush’s running mate Dick Cheney also had two driving while intoxicated offenses when he was in his early 20s according to his press secretary.

Prosecutors reported that the Singapore Airlines jumbo jet that crashed in Taipei attempted to take off on the wrong runway. The closed runway was filled with scraps of steel and two construction cranes.

The Palestine demanded a 2,000 armed U.N. protection force to ensure the safety and security of its civilians, but Israel’s prime minister said that the U.S. will veto any Security Council resolution to create such force. During the past five weeks, more than 160 people have been killed, the vast majority of which were Palestinians.
