    SEATTLE -- The parents of a 23-year-old activist killed while trying to prevent the demolition of a Palestinian home is suing Caterpillar Inc., the company that made the bulldozer that ran over her. The federal lawsuit, which lawyers said would be filed here Tuesday, alleges that Caterpillar violated international and state law by providing specially designed bulldozers to Israeli Defense Forces that it knew would be used to demolish homes and endanger people. Rachel Corrie, a student at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, was standing in front of a home in a refugee camp in Rafah, near the Egyptian...

    Security officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that in addition to his involvement in the Tel Aviv bombing, the man was part of a cell that had also built a car bomb that IDF troops disarmed last week, and was planning further attacks. In the pre-dawn hours Thursday, members of the IDF paratroop reconnaissance unit surrounded the wanted man in a structure in Nazlat Al Wusta village near Tul Karm, and called on him several times to surrender. Initial reports indicated that the troops sent a dog into the building to locate the fugitive holed up inside. The Jihad...

    TRENTON, New Jersey (AP) -- Animal rights activists are disgusted by a new candy from Kraft Foods Inc. that's shaped like critters run over by cars -- complete with tire treads.   The fruity-flavored Trolli Road Kill Gummi Candy -- in shapes of partly flattened snakes, chickens and squirrels -- fosters cruelty toward animals, according to the New Jersey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals."It sends the wrong message to children, that it's OK to harm animals. And that's the wrong message, especially from a so-called wholesome corporation like Kraft," said society spokesman Matthew Stanton.The society is considering...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - A Virginia man accused of plotting with al-Qaida to kill President Bush should be held indefinitely, federal prosecutors said Wednesday in court filings that also rejected his contention that he was tortured while held in Saudi Arabia. At a court hearing a day earlier in Alexandria, Va., 23-year-old Ahmed Abu Ali offered to display scars on his back as proof that he was tortured by Saudi authorities. In their filing Wednesday, prosecutors said, "There is no credible evidence to support those claims." Abu Ali never complained about his treatment during several meetings with an American diplomat in...

    Greensboro, NC -- An Irving Park home has been condemned in a case animal control officers are calling "extremely unsanitary". Investigators say the homeowner was picking up roadkill and keeping it in her refrigerator, freezer and in plastic bags behind her house. "[There was] just trash, filth and debris throughout the house," says animal control officer Jennifer Welch. "There wasn't anywhere in the house that wasn't covered in it." Welch says the homeowner's sister called animal control after the house was condemned by the city, seeking help in the cleanup. Investigators say the animal carcasses were removed last weekend and...

    <p>" It didn’t sound like a hard question. After George W. Bush delivered a tepidly received address to a convention of minority journalists, a Native-American editor from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer asked, “What do you think tribal sovereignty means in the 21st century?” As president and a former governor, the journalist said, Bush had a “unique experience, looking at [the issue] from two perspectives.” The president fumbled. “Tribal sovereignty means that—it’s sovereignty,” he stammered. “I mean, you’re a—you’re a—you’ve been given sovereignty and you’re viewed as a sovereign entity.” As Bush rambled, looking like a schoolboy unprepared at the front of the class, many of the hundreds of Asian, black, Native American and Hispanic journalists gathered before him…well, snickered.</p>

"It is time for a change," declared a one-page statement by 27 ex-officials released at a press conference here Wednesday. "Never in the two and a quarter centuries of our history has the United States been so isolated among the nations, so broadly feared and distrusted." "The...

The following article, received from the International Solidarity Movement's Media Office, is published in efforts to allow debate from all sides of the political spectrum.

When Corrie died more than a year ago, it was no great stretch to suspect that she and others who converged on Israel's territories knowingly supported terrorists. There was certainly no proof and it was just as difficult to figure out any hard connection. At the time, my chief objection to Corrie and her pals with the International Solidarity Movement was their interference with Israeli military activities. Most are foreigners...

They found a home crawling with life: About 200 creatures — including alligators, scorpions and carnivorous beetles — formed a bizarre menagerie kept alive by a woman who fed them roadkill. "The smell was just unbelievable," said William Mitchell, a state conservation warden who found about 70 ducks cramped in a basement pen with droppings covering the floor. "It was really stinking. ... It made my eyes water." Neighbors had complained about the foul smell. Animal carcasses were in a freezer...

    PHILADELPHIA - (KRT) - For squirrels, October may be the cruelest month. One moment they are bushy-tailed bundles of activity; the next, they are roadkill, victims of their own foraging frenzy and youthful exuberance. In some leafy neighborhoods, dead squirrels lie two or three to a block. The carnage, biologists say, is as much a harbinger of autumn as the falling leaves. And this October may be crueler than usual. An early acorn fall may have heightened the squirrels' voracious activity, some experts say. Squirrels born in late summer are now making their first independent forays into the world. Like...

    About one-fifth of Americans strongly opposed the war in Iraq.

While the level of support increased after the war began, the onset of fighting did not budge the war's strongest opponents. This "peace party" became known to the American public through antiwar protests and demonstrations, but media coverage of these events did not tell us much...

The moose was still alive, but struggling and Baker said he eventually had to shoot it. However, when he talked to Remington, Baker learned it wasn't just the bull that was hit. In a ditch some 75 feet away was a dead...

They mercifully shot the animal to death and told the man he could have the corpse. The man did his butchering in full view of several children, all ages 10 to 12, according to Cynthia.
