AB THURSDAY, APRIL 12, 2001 THE SAUNA JOURNAL T MIDEAST UNREST mm m The Associated Press Palestinian mother Nabila Aburiduan holds her 3-mpnth- old daughter Nabila as she sits among the rubble of her damaged house in Khan Yunis refugee camp in the southern Gaza Strip Wednesday. Israel calls tank barrage defensive Israelis to meet with Palestinians despite violence By KARIN LAUB The Associated Press JERUSALEM — Israeli and Palestinian security chiefs met Wednesday in a U.S.-sponsored effort to reduce violence, Palestinian officials said, hours after Israeli tanks rumbled into a refugee camp and reduced a neighborhood to rubble — the first such foray into Palestinian territory during seven months of violence. The U.S. administration is reluctant to help broker peace talks before violence ends, but U.S. mediators stepped in after the latest flare-up to arrange the meeting between Israeli and Palestinian security commanders, with the participation of U.S. diplomats and CIA officials. The Palestinians initially said they hesitated to attend the talks, following the Israeli assault with tanks and bulldozers on a neighborhood in the Khan Yunis refugee camp in the Gaza Strip. Israel said the predawn raid was in response to mortar fire. Two Palestinians were killed, more than two dozen wounded and 30 homes razed or heavily damaged in the raid that left hundreds homeless, according to Palestinian officials. The Israeli troops came under heavy return fire, witnesses said. At daybreak, two camp residents with hoes tore into the rubble, retrieving blankets and pillows, while a woman collected pots and pans. Nine-year-old Osama Hassouneh picked up the pieces of a red fire engine that he said was a gift from his father and his only toy. • SOUTH AFRICA PENTAX 2320 Planet Galaxy Center, 827-2497 .faitfocusinccom YEN CHINO Chinese Restsaurant DELIVERY 823-1685 Open 7 days a week Dine In & Carryout 540 S.

Illinois Soccer tragedy kills at least 45 Oversold tickets leads to stampede at soccer match in South Africa By RAVI NESSMAN The Associated Press JOHANNESBURG, South Africa — A stampede that began when fans tried to push their way into a packed soccer stadium left at least 45 people dead Wednesday, with bodies strewn across the field, emer­ gency officials said. The stampede occurred during a match between the Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates at Ellis Park stadium. Emergency Services said 45 people had been killed, according to the South African Press Association. The South African Broadcasting Corp., however, put the death toll at 47. Television footage showed blanket-covered bodies lying on the field. At least 25 injured people were being ferried to a hospital by bus and others were being sent by helicopter, emergency services spokesman Piet Olivier told SAPA. SABC reported that too many tickets had been sold for the match. People outside tried to push into the stadium and were trapped against barbed wire. Emergency vehicles outside the stadium were unable to move amid the soccer traffic. Police had earlier fired tear gas at people outside the stadium, according to SAPA. Several fans at the stadium told a radio station the stadium had been vastly overcrowded and appeared to have inadequate security to handle the problem. The Chiefs and the Pirates are major rivals in the local soccer league and their matches are extremely popular.
