Front Page: War Crimes Suspect Captured, US Ready to Cut Farm Aid, Bulldozer Attack

  • War Crimes Suspect Captured:
    Celebrations swept the streets in Sarajevo over the news that Bosnian Serb war crimes suspect, Radovan Karadzic, had been captured. He'd been hiding in Belgrade, Serbia, on the run for more than 10 years. Charged with using 284 UN peacekeepers as human shields, the UN says Karadzic's forces killed up to 8,000 in 1995 as part of a campaign to "terrorize and demoralize the Bosnian Muslim and Bosnian Croat population."
  • US Ready to Cut Farm Aid:
    The US is ready to drop the maximum for farm subsidies to $15 billion a year to under pressure during talks for a global trade deal. The trade offer is hinged to other partners at the WTO also opening up their markets for agricultural and industrial goods. The ceiling for farm subsidies, freeing trade, is a key component of the deal.

  • Bulldozer Attack:
    A bulldozer driver rampaged in Jerusalem today, crushing vehicles close to the hotel where Obama is expected to stay later today. The driver of the bulldozer was shot dead. Police are describing the incident, the second one in less than a month, as a "terrorist" attack. Officials say that 11 people were injured, and no one has yet claimed responsibility.
