Shelter Insurance Cos., Home Office: 1817 W Broadway, Columbia, MO 65218 After activist is killed, residents take after marketplace thieves with machetes and sticks By The Associated Press PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — Residents of a slum took up machetes and sticks Saturday against suspected thieves in their midst. At least five people were killed and about 100 homes burned. Many who lost homes in the rampage in Portau-Prince's La Saline slum said they were innocent victims. The violence began about 5 a.m., shortly after residents discovered the bullet-riddled body of a neighborhood activist. People assumed that Guy Jean-Pierre was killed by robbers. Infuriated, they began setting fire to a section of the slum considered a den of thieves. "Finish off these thieves!" the mob shouted. A photographer counted the bodies of four accused robbers, including a man beaten with wooden planks and then stabbed to death. Eric Fait, spokesman for the U.N. military mission, said preliminary reports indicated six deaths — the activist and five people killed by the crowd. A mob of about 50, waving sticks and machetes, prevented a fire truck from approaching the area. Police arrived, shot in the air and dispersed the crowd. They arrested three suspects. T FRANCE Basketball clinic part of girls sports day The YWCA of Salina will be host to a basketball clinic/scrimmage Thursday in recognition of National Girls and Women in Sports Day.

French government tests nuke in Pacific Explosion was the sixth in a series of atomic blasts since September By The Associated Press v-. PARIS — France set off a nuclear test blast Saturday at Fangataufa Atoll in the South Pacific, the sixth and possibly the last in a series of atomic tests that has sparked worldwide protests. France's Defense Ministry announced that the blast had taken place at 10:30 p.m. French time (3:30 p.m. local) at the atoll, which is approximate- ly 750 miles southeast of Tahiti. "The energy released by.the.blast was less than 120 kilotons. This test was carried out in order to guarantee the safety and reliability of weapons in the future," the ministry said in a statement. Saturday's test was the sixth in a series that began last September, ,when France broke a- three-year moratorium. The blasts, conducted in two remote atolls, in French Polynesia, prompted an international outcry by environmental groups and governments in the region. Following those protests, the French government said it would scale back what was planned as an' eight-part series to six tests. However, the government has refused to say exactly how many tests it will conduct. Defense Minister Charles Millori has said only, that the last of the tests will come by the end of February. The fifth was on Dec. 27. Of the tests conducted so far, Saturday's was the most powerful, according to the French statement. However, New Zealand's Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences estimated the yield of the blast at 45 kilotons — well below France's estimate of 120 kilotons. France.has-promised to sign the ,. Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban.' Treaty by May, as well as the South,. Pacific Nuclear-Free Zone Treaty and the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty,. It insists, the tests are needed to. ensure the viability of its indepen-, •: dent nuclear force and to develop simulation technology making fur-\; ther testing unnecessary. ,.-,•;. In December, Foreign Ministry.' spokesman Yves Doutriaux said' that after France completes its se- - ries, a panel from the International • 11 Atomic Energy Agency would be able to check the atolls for any radi*''. ation contamination.
