4-A THE GALVESTON DAILY NEWS FRIDAY MORNING. OCTORPtt IB. WORLD BRIEFS Two convicted in activist's murder JOHANNESBURG, South Africa (AP) — A pro-apartheid politician and a Polish immigrant who feared communism were convicted Thursday of murdering popular black leader Chris Hani. But a third defendant was acquitted, evoking cries from black leaders that the "master- mind'' of the assassination had been freed. A gasp went through the packed courtroom as Judge Frikkie Eloff announced Gaye Derby-Lewis played no role in the death of Hani, the Communist Party leader and a top African National Congress official. Eloff had just convicted her husband, Clive, and Janusz Walus of killing Hani in his driveway on April 10. Obituaries The shooting touched off rioting but did not derail talks on ending apartheid. Human rights talks go forward BEIJING (AP) — China agreed Thursday to further talks with the United States about human rights issues, but rejected a link between an improved rights record and trade privileges. "The human rights issue in essence falls within the scope of a country's sovereignty," Foreign Ministry spokesman Wu Jian- min said. "To attach any conditions ... is unacceptable to the Chinese side." The Clinton administration has said China must improve its human rights record if it expects a renewal next year of its most- favored-nation trade status, which guarantees it lower tariffs. Sarajevo shelled; aid convoys canceled Associated Press SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina — The ominous boom of heavy artillery returned to Sarajevo on Thursday, and an aid convoy was canceled in the north as Bosnia approached another winter of war. ^State-run radio said about 150,000 Muslim civilians in Maglaj in the north, cut off since June by Serb and Croat forces, begged the Muslim-led government: "Maglaj is expecting urgent help from you, because soon you won't have anybody to help here." U.N. relief officials said they had to scrub the relief convoy intended for Maglaj and nearby Tesanj after Serbs refused to guarantee safe passage. Bosnian radio said both towns came under heavy shelling Thursday. That report could not be confirmed. In Sarajevo, officials warned residents to stay inside as the city came under some of the worst shelling in weeks. Lt. Col. Bill Aikman, a spoke- man for U.N. peacekeeping forces AP A woman weeps as she leans on the window bars of her apartment In Sarajevo Thursday after returning from a cemetery where she had burled her brother. in Sarajevo, said snipers shot at four U.N. vehicles within 36 hours, wounding an Egyptian soldier in the shoulder. Thursday's shelling appeared to be in retaliation for a mortar attack by government forces on the Serb- held northern suburb of Vogosca. "The Serbs decided to fire back with everything they've got," Aikman said. Aikman said he did not know whether the shelling foreshadowed a new surge of fighting in Sarajevo, which has been relatively quiet recently. But he added: "We are at risk here. Tensions are rising." In Vitez, a town in central Bosnia contested by Croat and government forces, an undetermined number of Muslim troops were killed in a huge blast. Croats apparently mined trenches, then set off the charges after Muslim soldiers moved in, said officials at a local British U.N. base. Bosnia's war started 18 months ago when Serbs rebelled after the republic's Muslims and Croats voted for independence from Serb- dominated Yugoslavia. The fighting has left up to 200,000 people dead or missing, and 70 percent of Bosnia in Serb hands. A member of Bosnia's collective presidency, Tatjana Ljujic- Mijadovic, expressed fear that Bosnia would suffer another winter of misery. Some 300,000 refugees lack shelter, and care is inadequate for the tens of thousands of prisoners, former prisoners and invalids who need it. Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic and Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic pledged Thursday to maintain a cease-fire in Bosnia and allow "free passage" of aid convoys through Serb territory, the Tanjug news agency reported. But Bosnian Serbs said earlier they could not guarantee the safety of U.N. aid trucks headed for the Maglaj-Tesanj area. A separate Red Cross convoy v/as damaged by a land mine Wednesday just beyond the last Serb checkpoint. U.N. officials said they would try again next week to get aid there. The joint message by Karadzic and Milosevic blamed Bosnian President Aljja Izetbegovic and his "extremist" Muslim followers for prolonging the war.
