Explosion, Chemical Ali, Turkey Withdraws

Front Page: Explosion, Chemical Ali, Turkey Withdraws

  • A huge explosion in a retail center near Chicago injured eight people, including two who were trapped in the rubble and were rescued by firefighters. The explosion happened around noon, and fire officials are now speculating the cause of the explosion was a gas leak, though nothing is conclusive due to the severe damage of the building. Nearby Tuxedo World, Cleopatra’s Unisex Hair Salon and a Cellular Concepts store were also severely damaged.
  • Chemical Ali, Saddam Hussein's cousin — whose real name is Hassan al-Majid — has had his execution approved by the Iraqi president. He was sentenced to death last June for his role in the 1988 Anfal Campaign, a genocide which killed 100,000 people, mostly Kurds in northern Iraq. Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Maliki said of the timing for his execution, "it will be a matter of days."
  • Turkey says it has withdrawn its troops from northern Iraq, after a ground offensive against Kurdish rebels proved controversial. The Turkish army said the goals of their operation "had been reached and the units have returned to their bases." The decision to withdraw comes just one day after President Bush and Secretary of Defense Robert Gates urged Turkey to wrap up their mission and respect Iraqi sovereignty. Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshiyar Zebari said, "we think this is the right thing for Turkey to do."
