2)  World news roundup

*Early Tuesday, the United Nations Security Council passed a resolution
calling for the end of Israeli military operations near Ramallah, where
forces are besieging Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.  Coming in the
wake of a new Israeli military incursion into Gaza City left nine
Palestinians dead, the resolution also demands a withdrawal from all
other Palestianian towns.  Israel has dismissed the “unbalanced”
resolution and seems prepared to ignore it.  

*A law passed to ban all computer games in Greece is being revised and
clarified after the gaming community expressed outrage at the failure to
differentiate between online gambling and gaming.  Now the government is
issuing guidelines that delineate that only games related to gambling
are covered by the legislation, much to the relief of internet cafe
owners and tourists.  So far, about 50 people have been arrested for
flouting the new law. 

*As new heavy fighting broke out from the city of Bouake on the Ivory
Coast, a special representative United Nations Secretary-General has
urged Ivory Coast President Laurent Ghagbo to negotiate a peaceful
resolution to the five-day-old rebel uprising.  The rebels claim they
are protesting a scheme to expel them from the army, while the
government alleges they are trying to stage a coup.
