Palestinians walk out of peace talks By The Associated Press JERUSALEM — Deepening a sense of crisis in Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, Palestinian negotiators unexpectedly walked out of talks in Jerusalem Monday night. The walkout came hours after U.S. mediator Dennis Ross announced that he was returning to Washington. Israelis and Palestinians blamed each other for an impasse after two weeks of talks. It was not clear when the Palestinians intended to return to the negotiating table. A U.S. official said the talks would resume, but didn't say when. Moshe Fogel, a spokesman for Israel's government, told The As- V' The Associated Press Army Corps of Engineers Park Ranger Brian McCavitt stands watch Monday over a barricaded area at Bonnevllle Dam near Stevenson, Wash., where Nathaniel Milligan was killed by authorities. Extortion standoff FBI agent kills suspect in dam extortion plot By The Associated Press STEVENSON, Wash.— A man who threatened to blow up the Bonneville Dam in an extortion plot was shot to death by an FBI agent when he arrived at the dam to pick up the ransom, authorities said Monday. No explosives found. were MILLIGAN Nathaniel Milligan, 18, who according to his father had mental problems and was convicted of raping a child, died in the confrontation Sunday night near a visitors' center at the dam, about 40 miles east of Portland, Ore. About two hours earlier, tourists found a tape recorder in a telephone booth at the visitors' center. The player, with a sign on it saying "play me," contained a recorded bomb threat and a demand for $15,000, FBI agent Burdena Pasenelli said. Authorities evacuated about 15 people working at the visitors' center and an adjacent powerhouse and warned fishermen away from the dam. Milligan was shot as he approached an FBI agent and an Oregon state trooper with a loaded .22-caliber rifle in one hand and what he said was a detonator in the other, Pasenelli said. She said the "detonator" turned out to be a cell phone. No one else was injured. The shooting took place outside a small brick building where visitors can view salmon as they swim past fish ladders. Milligan lived in a trailer in a fishing camp about a quarter- mile upstream from the dam. His father, John Milligan, said his son — who would have turned 19 Tuesday — was manic- depressive and heard voices, and had been convicted of raping a child. "Ricky does things to get attention sometimes," Milligan told KGW-TV in Portland. "He had a rough life." Skamania County court records showed the younger Milligan was convicted of child sex abuse in 1994. The visitors' center remained closed Monday, but other operations at the dam returned to normal, said Diana Brimhall, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The Corps operates the sprawling hydropower installation on the Columbia River along the Oregon-Washington border. The dam on the Columbia River was built in the 1930s and was the first of eight lock-and-dam projects on the river. The dam's two powerhouses and locks span 2,175 feet. Murder / Warrant may-be delayed FROM PAGE A1 A judge would make the final decision of whether a murder warrant is issued, after considering whether there is probable cause that the suspect committed the crime. "One of the things that I have as an option is to go ahead with the paperwork," McKenna said. "Then, when he's arrested, go ahead and request the (murder) warrant. "That gives us the opportunity to question him and find out what we can under those circumstances. I just don't see the need for expediency and that's why I'm looking at it cautiously and closely." White, 26, is a suspect in the T SUPREME COURT murders of Dolores McKim, 80, her daughter Carol Abercrombie, 56, and McKim's great-grandson Christopher Abercrombie, 5. The three were bludgeoned to death at McKim's home at 1721 Glen Ave. A former Salina resident, White lived in the small Jewell County town of Formoso at the time of the murders. He was questioned by a Kansas Bureau of Investigation agent after McKim family members saw him at the funeral for one of the victims. White was not held. McKenna said she was not notified when White was questioned and that displeases her. "I wish I would have been notified, yes," she said. "This was not a name I am unfamiliar with. If I had been notified initially I could have checked to see if it was a situation where we could have gone with a (probation violation) warrant or not." McKenna said. "That's why it concerns me." Hill said McKenna was not notified because White, at that time, hadn't violated his probation and was not considered a suspect. "We were interviewing lots and lots of people then, and he was in the same boat," Hill said. Salina police said they have no idea where White might be. White applied for welfare benefits in Cleveland, Ohio, in August, but after an extensive search there police concluded he had left the area. Staff writer Sharon Montague contributed to this report. 'Don't ask' policy survives court test By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — President Clinton's "don't ask, don't tell" policy on gays in the military survived its first Supreme Court test Monday as the court rejected the appeal of a former Navy officer dismissed for declaring his homosexuality. The justices rejected former Lt. Paul Thomasson's argument that the policy is unlawful discrimination and a violation of homosexual service members' free-speech rights. Thomasson was forced to leave the Navy last year after writing a letter to his commander that said, "I am gay." He had served for nearly 10 years. The court's action was not a rul- ing on the issue's merits and does not preclude the justices from fully reviewing the policy in a future case. But the court let stand a lower court's decision that upheld the rule barring openly homosexual people from the military. The Clinton administration said the government has a legitimate interest in prohibiting homosexual acts in the military. ON THE RECORD sociated Press that "in principle" the negotiations would continue today. He said the Palestinians seemed angry, "but we believe these are delaying tactics." The latest round of talks began in response to a plea from President Clinton following a week of violence in which Palestinian police and Israeli soldiers opened fire on one another, killing 79 people.
