Mother Teresa receives honorary citizenship WASHINGTON — President Clinton has signed legislation conferring honorary U.S. citizenship on Mother Teresa, saying the famous Roman Catholic nun has demonstrated "how we .can make real our dreams for a just and good society." In signing a congressional resolution Tuesday making MOTHER TERESA Mother Teresa an honorary citizen, Clinton said that since founding the Missionaries of Charity in 1950, "she has brought hope and love into the lives of millions of orphaned and abandoned children the world over." - Mother Theresa, 86, operates 517 Missionaries of Charity centers around the world. She returned to her work earlier this month after two weeks of hospitalization for malaria, a chest infection and cardiac problems.

Gang member may be linked to Shakur killing COMPTON, Calif. — A man wanted for questioning in the drive-by slaying of rapper Tupac Shakur was arrested in a roundup of 22 gang members before dawn Wednesday, police said. Orlando Anderson, arrested in suburban Lakewood, was to be questioned Vegas, where the gangland-style •shooting took place Sept. 7. Police Chief Hpurie Taylor released few details about Anderson, saying only that he was in his early 20s and believed to be a gang member. No immediate charges were filed in connection with Shakur's slaying. Spy suspect ordered held without bond ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Citing "overwhelming" evidence indicating that Robert Kim gave classi-. fied documents to South Korea, a federal judge ordered the former government computer analyst held without bond Wednesday. U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema reversed a magistrate's decision that would have allowed Kim to go free while awaiting trial on charges he provided South Korean officials documents obtained while he worked for Navy Intelligence. • "At this point the evidence appears to be overwhelming," Brinkema said after a hearing. Because Kim is deeply in debt, Brinkema said, he poses a threat to flee the country. She noted he has family and other close ties to "South Korea. From Wire Service Reports I RAIPH WEIGELI Bonds - Insurance I Phone 827-2906 I mimmHrnSmmSiimmiik T MIDDLE EAST T BOSNIA Cows become an economic lifeline for Bosnian farmers Cattle being supplied as part of aid effort by United Nations agency By JOHN MADELEY London Observer Service The Associated Press Orthodox Jewish men mingle at the exit of the controversial archaeological tunnel In the old city of Jerusalem on Wednesday as Israeli policemen stand guard. Tunnel of tumult In eternal city, fury erupts from hole in the wall By MORT ROSENBLUM The Associated Press JERUSALEM — The fury started over a hole in the wall in the heart of Old Jerusalem, covered by two blue-gray metal doors that open hardly wide enough to let through a pair of tourists with fanny packs. Inside is a clammy, narrow passageway toward the Western Wall, about the length of two football fields, through an underground water main no one has used for 2,000 years. And yet in an eternal city anchored in symbols as solid as its stone foundations, the violence unleashed over Jerusalem's tunnel of tumult may shape Holy Land politics for years, if not decades. Israelis punched the hole in the wall to triple the flow of tourists from the Western Wall Heritage Museum by providing a back door. Also, they wanted to show they could do it. Archeologists say the interesting parts were explored and opened to visits years ago. Demolition experts laugh off Palestinians' complaint that the tunnel could hide explosives that could threaten holy mosques above it. But Palestinians object because the new exit disgorges a '- stream of Jews into the Muslim Quarter, a tenuous toehold in a Jerusalem to which they claim equal rights. The doors open directly under an Islamic boys' school in a residential section where Arabs saw only the occasional Israeli patrol.- To them, it's a hard slap in a collective face. "What shall we do?" lamented Isaac Abu Hani, a Palestinian whose souvenir shop is suffering, and so is he. "You must have patience with these people," he said. "If you say too much, you are silenced. When we see them, we do this." He bowed his head in mock submission. "What is our choice?' Tourists buy cold drinks but do not linger over Abu Hani's fashionwear. They hurry up the Via Dolorosa, some not even realizing that they are retracing the route Jesus reputedly took as he labored under the cross. Tourists now exit by the tunnel, but instead of increasing the daily flow of 900, the visits average near 200. People exit the doors and disappear. With all the troubles in the ancient neighborhood, merchants and customers are staying home. At the end of the souk, Israeli troops guard an entrance to Islam's holy Temple Mount. Along one wall, Arabs sit in a row sipping mint tea and cardamom- laced coffee served from brass urns heated by coals. None seems happy at the uniformed Israelis among them, whom no one invited. "We need war," pronounced Kad Abu Khaled, a short, fastidious retired teacher. He figures that if conflict killed most Arab leaders, including Yasser Arafat, new ones would face down Israel. The tunnel dated back to the Prophet Mohammed and therefore belonged to Muslims, he said, neglecting to explain the discrepancy of 15 centuries. Yusef Mohammed, a builder, made no claims nor offered any ideology. He just wanted to feel like he belonged to Jerusalem. Fighting was no answer, he said, but neither was doing nothing. A short walk from the disputed tunnel, the mood is clearly lighter. Tourist swarms bargain for assorted artifacts. Guides drone on in polyglot spiel fit for the Tower of Babel. And outside the old city walls, life is all but normal. During the Sukkot holiday, Israeli mounted police officers lazed in the shade as their tethered horses nibbled the grass nearby. But near the tunnel mouth, tension remains high. With plenty of time to think and to chat, Abu Hani tried to explain why. "Of course, there is bitterness," he offered. "People feel alone, rejected by the world. America gives Israelis $3 billion and Palestinians $20 million. What do you think?" With mounting frustration, and no way to let off steam, he concluded, a hole in the wall is enough to trigger cataclysm. SARAJEVO — The cows didn't want to move. For a month after arriving in trucks from Germany, Austria and Switzerland, they had lived in the peace and quiet of a quarantine station on the outskirts of Sarajevo. Now they were being prodded and shoved back into a truck — but not without staging an enormous struggle. Eventually, the rear doors closed on 42 reluctant beasts and, although they couldn't know it, their journey would be short and their new home would be among people who would cherish them as an economic lifeline. Bosnia's livestock had dwindled by 70 percent during the four-year war, wiping out the livelihoods of hill farmers of this mountainous country. The International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), the U.N. agency that helps the world's rural poor and was brought in to assess the post-war rural situation, concluded that reequipping farmers with cattle was the chief priority. Some 2,800 pregnant heifers and 94 bulls are being supplied under this aid effort, part of a wider World Bank-IFAD farm reconstruction project for Bosnia. The first 42 cows deployed in this mission were sent on their way flanked by armed soldiers in three NATO Implementation Force (IFOR) vehicles, camera crews and officials from the World Bank and IFAD. Their destination was the village of Praca, 30 miles to the southeast. Praca was virtually abandoned in the war. Only recently did people return and begin the huge job of rebuilding their lives and their homes. The farmers, mostly women, were waiting to meet the convoy as it arrived. As a cow was handed over to Monira Cutuk, in exchange for the required $33 insurance, she wept tears of joy. Cutuk's own house barely has a roof, but she had built a makeshift barn for the new cow and the calf that is due. The animal will give her the chance of a new start. It will not only give her milk to drink and sell, but it will enable her to make butter and cheese. It will give her an income. The cow is just about her only productive asset, a four-legged passport back to normality in this bruised country. Guard unit to return to Kansas By Harris News Service TOPEKA — Thirty members of a Kansas Army National Guard unit from Great Bend are scheduled to return home Saturday from Bosnia where they have been since February as part of a peacekeeping mission.
