Rockland Journal-News The World Friday, July 17, 1992 A15 Police arrest 7 in occult slaying The Associated Press RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil (AP) Police seized an image of the devil and other black magic materials at the home of two cult leaders being sought in the ritual murder of a 7-year-old boy. Police have launched a manhunt for Jose Taruggi, an Argentine citizen, and his wife, Valentina de Andrade, who are suspected of killing and mutilating the child, Evandro Ramos Caeta-no. The couple also is wanted in' connection with the Feb. 15 disappearance of an 8-year-old boy, Leandro Bossi, whose whereabouts are unknown, police said. The case broke early this month when police arrested seven people allegedly involved in the murder of Caetano, whose body was found in a field near Guaratu-ba five days after he disappeared on April 6. Police have traced his death to the wife of Guaratuba's mayor, who they allege turned to a Satanic cult to try to improve her husband's sagging political and business fortunes. Celina Abagge allegedly paid cult members about $2,000 to kill the boy in a good-luck ritual, police said. Detective Joao Arnaldo Hobmeir said the boy was sacri- Islands new security The Associated Press HONG KONG - A collection of 105 rocky atolls and reefs, many of which spend half their time under water, has emerged as the latest flashpoint in Southeast Asia. Situated between Vietnam and the Philippine's island of Palawan, the islands are significant not for what's on them but for what may be underneath oil and gas. Six countries China, Vietnam, Taiwan, Malaysia, the Philippines and Brunei claim the chain known as the Spratly Islands. All except Brunei station Archaeologists say U.S. Embassy on historically important land The Associated Press SANTA TECLA, El Salvador The huge new U.S. Embassy, widely considered a white mastodon, was built on what archaeologists say is one of the most important sites in Central America. To complicate matters further, the location in this western suburb outside San Salvador is technically illegal. Salvadoran law stipulates that foreign embassies be in the capital. U.S. Embassy spokeswoman Sonja Sweek said: "When we bought the land, it was a working China raises economic growth rate The Associated Press BEIJING In a major policy shift, China's planned annual economic growth rate has been raised to 10 percent for the rest of the decade from the previously rate of 6 percent, a government spokesman said yesterday. The spokesman, Yuan Mu, said China's gross national product reached $174 billion in the first half of this year, up 10.6 percent over the same period in 1991. He predicted the growth rate for the full year would be 9 to 10 percent, but said some localities would grow even faster. China should maintain a 9 to 10 percent annual growth rate through the end of the century, Yuan said. Conservatives in the leadership have fought to keep the growth rate low, while reformers have argued that economic reforms should be accelerated and economic growth expanded after a three-year retrenchment program. Earlier this year, Premier Li Peng announced that the growth rate for 1991-1995 would be kept to 6 percent annually even though many experts believed the figure was low. Yuan said senior leader Deng Xiaoping felt 6 percent was too low. But Deng did not say how much it should increase, Yuan said. Last month, even Li acknowledged that keeping growth to 6 percent was unlikely. r - j, -1 ' f ; .'

The boy's ears, hands and genitals were cut off, and his' heart, liver and intestines removed, Hobmeir said in a telephone interview from Curitiba, capital of Parana state. His blood was collected, mixed with sawdust and thrown into the sea, the detective said. Spirit cults, notably Umbanda and Candomble, have millions of believers. Members call on gods who mostly correspond to Roman Catholic saints for help in daily affairs. Animals such as chickens and goats are sometimes sacrificed to the deities, but devil worship and human sacrifice are not part of cult rituals. troops on them. China and Vietnam have twice fought battles over the reefs and atolls in the last 18 years. Western analysts believe more fighting is likely, in part because the disengagement of the superpowers from the region has left a power vacuum. If war comes, the victims won't be confined to Southeast Asia. Western and Japanese oil companies have been eyeing the chain for decades since the Vietnam War, when Mobil Oil found an estimated 600 million barrels of oil in Vietnam's Big coffee farm. We have no knowledge of any archaeological finds or any finds of historical significance on this site." Yet a study for the National Museum in 1985-1986 found the site was archaeologically significant. The report recommended the site be preserved or that the artifacts there be salvaged before development. The United States apparently could not find a site large and secure enough inside the capital for what became the biggest U.S. mission in the Western Hemisphere.

The car carrying Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Velayati was hit by several eggs and one bottle yesterday as it pulled up to the gate of Cecilienhof palace in Potsdam. Nobody was hurt, and the car was only lightly damaged, police said. Three Iranian activists were arrested from a group of about eight that took part, they said. A spokesman for the Iranian Mujahadeen opposition group, who did not give his name, called The Associated Press from Cologne to claim responsibility.
