French FM: Envoys sayGadhafi ready to go
US strikes in Pakistanfollow aid cut, kill 38
PARIS (AP) — France’sforeign minister said todayParis has had contact withemissaries from MoammarGadhafi who say the embat-tled Libyan strongman is “pre-pared to leave.”Alain Juppe said that whilethe contacts do not constituteproper negotiations, “every-one (involved in Libya’s civilwar) has contacts with every-one else. The Libyan regimesends its messengers all over,to Turkey, to New York, toParis.“We receive emissarieswho are saying, ’Gadhafi isprepared to leave. Let’s dis-cuss it.”’Foreign Ministry spokes-man Bernard Valero stressedthat the contacts with Libyansclose to Gadhafi do not con-stitute negotiations. He alsodenied suggestions that Franceis acting as a go-between forLibyan rebels by passing mes-sages when French officialsmeet with Gadhafi emissariesor that the French are takinga leading role in such con-tacts. The rebels, “if they havethe intention of sending mes-sages,” can do so themselves,Valero said at a briefing.He refused to identifythe Libyan emissaries otherthan to say they were close toGadhafi and travel to variousmajor capitals.France was instrumentalin launching the NATO-ledoperation of airstrikes againstGadhafi’s forces, in a U.N.-mandated mission to protectcivilians resisting his four-decade regime.NATO flew more than 100sorties Monday and hit severalkey targets in western Libya,including a military storagefacility, three military facilitiesand seven military vehicles,according to an operationalreport issued today.French officials haveinsisted that Gadhafi’s givingup power is key to endingthe hostilities, which beganin mid-March, and Juppe saidthat more and more countriesare now in agreement on thatpoint.“There is a consensus onhow to end the crisis, whichis that Gadhafi has to leavepower,” Juppe said. “That(consensus) was absolute-ly not a given two or threemonths ago.“The question is no longerwhether Gadhafi is going toleave power, but when andhow,” he added.Parliament is due to votelater today on whether to con-tinue French participation inthe operations in Libya.French law requires parlia-mentary approval for all mili-tary campaigns lasting morethan four months. The Libyaoperation has wide supportamong lawmakers from boththe governing conservativeparty and among the opposi-tion Socialists, and the vote isexpected to pass with a broadmajority.Juppe insisted the opera-tion was helping shape thesituation on the ground inLibya.“Contrary to what wemight hear, things are evolv-ing in Libya,” both from astrategic and political perspec-tive, he said.DERA ISMAIL KHAN,Pakistan (AP) — Three sus-pected U.S. missile strikesin northwestern Pakistan inless than 12 hours killed atleast 38 alleged militants, anunusually heavy barrage at atime when relations betweenthe two countries are badlystrained, Pakistani intelli-gence officials said today.The strikes follow theObama administration’sannouncement that it is sus-pending more than one-thirdof U.S. military aid to Pakistanuntil disagreements are workedout. The attacks indicate theWhite House has no inten-tion of stopping the unmanneddrone program even thoughthe attacks have increasinglycaused tension with Pakistan.In the latest strike, sus-pected U.S. missiles hit ahouse in Dremala village inthe South Waziristan tribalarea early today, killing atleast eight alleged militants,said two Pakistani intelli-gence officials. Two otherPakistani intelligence offi-cials put the death toll fromthe strike at 13. The villageis located close to the borderwith North Waziristan.Before dawn today, sus-pected U.S. missiles hit ahouse in Shawal area of NorthWaziristan, killing 10 allegedmilitants, said Pakistani intel-ligence officials.Late Monday, suspectedU.S. missiles hit a housein Gorvak village in NorthWaziristan, killing at least20 alleged militants, said twoPakistani intelligence offi-cials. Two other Pakistaniintelligence officials put thedeath toll at 23. The villageis located very close to theAfghan border and is oftenused as a route for militantsto cross into Afghanistan.The Pakistani intelligenceofficials spoke on conditionof anonymity because theywere not authorized to talk tothe media.The areas where the strikesoccurred are very dangerous,so it is difficult to indepen-dently confirm the intelli-gence officials’ accounts.Pakistan’s reluctance to tar-get Afghan militants based inNorth Waziristan who stagecross-border attacks againstNATO troops in Afghanistanhas been one of the main sourc-es of tension with the U.S.Pakistan says its troops arestretched too thin by opera-tions in other parts of thecountry, but many analystsbelieve the government ishesitant to cross militantswith whom it has historicalties and who could be use-ful allies in Afghanistan afterforeign forces withdraw.In response, the Obamaadministration has dramati-cally increased drone strikesin North Waziristan overthe past couple of years andhas also hit areas in SouthWaziristan. The U.S. refusesto publicly acknowledge thecovert CIA drone program inPakistan, but officials havesaid privately that the strikeshave killed senior Talibanand al-Qaida officials.Pakistan is widely believedto have supported the strikesin the past, even though offi-cials often criticize them pub-licly as a violation of thecountry’s sovereignty. Butthat support has become lesscertain in recent months, espe-cially following the covertU.S. raid that killed al-Qaidachief Osama bin Laden onMay 2 in a Pakistani garrisontown not far from Islamabad.The raid humiliated thePakistani military, which wasnot told about it beforehand.U.S. officials said they keptPakistan in the dark becausethey were worried that some-one would tip off bin Laden.Corn: $6.82Wheat: $6.09Beans: $13.62

Syrian protesters attackUS, French embassies
BEIRUT (AP) —Hundreds of Syrian govern-ment supporters attacked theU.S. Embassy in DamascusMonday, smashing windowsand spray-painting walls withobscenities and graffiti thatcalled the American ambas-sador a “dog.” Guards at theFrench Embassy fired in theair to ward off another groupof protesters.The sharp escalation intensions followed a visit lastweek by the American andFrench ambassadors to thecity of Hama, a strongholdof opposition to authori-tarian President BasharAssad. Syrian authoritieswere angered by the visitand American AmbassadorRobert Ford’s harsh criticismafterward of the governmentcrackdown on a four-month-old uprising. Ford’s resi-dence was also attacked onMonday.The U.S. and France bothaccused Syrian forces of being too slow to respond anddemanded the governmentabide by its international obli-gations to protect diplomaticmissions and allow envoysfreedom of movement. TheU.S. formally protested, call-ing the attacks “outrageous,”and saying protesters wereincited by a television stationheavily influenced by Syrianauthorities.“Ford get out now,” pro-testers wrote on a paper hungon the U.S. Embassy’s fence.“The people want to kickout the dog,” read graffitiscrawled in red on the wallof the embassy, along withanother line cursing America.The protesters smashed theembassy sign hanging overone gate.The U.S. said it would seekcompensation for damage.Syrian-U.S. relations havebeen mired in mutual dis-trust for years. But Monday’sattacks were the worst suchviolence since 2000, when astone-throwing mob attackedand vandalized the U.S.Embassy and ambassador’sresidence over American andBritish airstrikes against Iraq.The attacks pose arenewed challenge to theObama administration. TheWhite House has criticizedthe Syrian regime’s violentcrackdown on peaceful pro-tests but has refrained fromcalling for an end to theAssad family’s four decadesof rule, seemingly wary of pressing too hard as it triesto wind down wars in Iraqand Afghanistan and facescriticism for being part of thecoalition battling MoammarGadhafi in Libya.The U.S. said about 300“thugs” breached the wall of the embassy compound beforebeing dispersed by AmericanMarine guards. No injurieswere reported.State Department spokes-woman Victoria Nuland saidthe mob got onto the roof of the chancery building, spray-painted graffiti and brokewindows and security cam-eras. They lobbed fruits andvegetables at the compound.A witness told TheAssociated Press that protest-ers scaled a fence, smashedwindows and raised a Syrianflag at the embassy.
