Two fourth-graders die ENQUIRER NEWS SERVICES MIAMI Two 9-year-old boys were killed and a teacher critically injured Monday when a wheel snapped off the front of a truck, bounced across the median and smashed through the windshield of their school bus. The bus was carrying fourth-graders from Tropical Elementary School to a downtown museum for a field trip, said Dade County Schools spokesman Harry Fraind. A dozen children and two adults were treated for cuts and bruises. But a third adult was in "gravely critical condition," and one child was admitted to a hospital, a spokesman said. There was no warning of the accident, said Michelle Ca-sas, a chaperone accompanying the children. The 70-pound tire, 3V2 feet in diameter, slammed into two boys in a front passenger seat, killing them, and landed on a teacher. About 90 children were on two buses, one of which continued to the museum, its occupants initially unaware of the accident. Officials took all the children to hospitals to meet their parents, and sent counselors to the school.

Brown, 53, last month scrapped plans to run for the U.S. Senate in 1992 so he could pursue a third presidential campaign. "There's an undercurrent of resentment against the current state of politics and democracy, and people are literally crying out for a voice to express what they are feeling," said Brown, a Democrat.

U.S. Muslims freed from jail THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PESHAWAR, Pakistan Two American Muslim brothers were set free Monday after the Supreme Court overturned their robbery convictions and an order to cut off their right hands and left feet. "God is great!" shouted Charles Boyd, 29, and his brother, Daniel, 23, as they left the Central Jail, where they had been held since June. An Islamic court convicted the brothers Sept. 25 of robbing $3,200 from a suburban bank and ordered their right hands and left feet cut off. The sentence drew fire from fundamentalists and Islamic scholars, who said the Koran called for amputating the left hand, not the , right, for theft but never on the first offense. The Koran also mentions nothing about cutting off feet for theft. The brothers, from Alexandria, Va., converted to Islam nine years ago and moved to northwest Pakistan in 1989 to help more than 3 million refugees from the war in Jordan OKs conditions for peace talks ENQUIRER NEWS SERVICES AMMAN, Jordan: King Hussein told Secretary of State James Baker on Monday that Jordan was satisfied with U.S.-proposed conditions for a Middle East peace conference and that his country would attend all phases of the talks.

Formation of such a delegation is the last major obstacle to the convening of such a conference, which the United States hopes to sponsor jointly with the Soviet Union by Oct. 31. Leader accepts cabinet KINSHASA, Zaire: President Mobutu Sese Seko on Monday accepted a cabinet dominated by opposition figures, a development marking his first significant surrender of power in 26 years of often autocratic rule. But a Mobutu supporter was put in charge of the army. The agreement, under which former Interior Minister Etienne Tshisekedi becomes prime minister, ends two weeks of drift without a government as Zaire tries to recover from lethal riots that prompted a mass flight of foreigners and the intervention of French and Belgian paratroopers. Foes celebrate unofficial win SOFIA, Bulgaria: Thousands of Bulgarians took to the streets Monday night to celebrate an opposition group's claim of victory in parliamentary elections that could oust the government of former Communists. Projections based on partial returns gave the Union of Democratic Forces a narrow lead, but the ruling Socialists said it was too early to concede defeat. Final returns from Sunday's vote were not due until late in the week. Poor nations face health woes GENEVA: New health threats linked to changes in society, combined with AIDS and traditional disease, risk overwhelming medical care in developing nations, the World Health Organization said Monday. The U.N. agency suggested donor countries and international lending agencies require governments of developing nations to meet certain health goals in aid packages. Banks could attach similar conditions to loans, it said. Developing countries should not try to adopt the Western model of expensive, high-tech health care, the World Health Organization report said.
