Front Page: Missiles in Somalia, Whaling, Rice Calls for Peace

  • American naval forces continued to fire missiles into southern Somalia yesterday, aiming at what the Defense Department called terrorist targets.The missile strike was aimed at Kenyan Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan. He is wanted by the FBI for questioning in nearly simultaneous attacks in 2002, including one on a hotel in Mombasa, Kenya. Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman said the target is a “known Al Qaeda terrorist.” Three civilians have been wounded in the attacks, with no casualties yet.
  • Japan has escalated the situation surrounding an environmental group's attack on one of its whaling ships using rotten butter. Japan has summoned senior diplomats to complain about the activist attack, calling attention to the fact that rotten butter is a mild acid. The Sea Shepherd group carried out the attack. The International Whaling Commission will meet soon in London for a three-day meeting, an attempt to break the deadlock between pro-whaling and anti-whaling nations.
  • US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is in the Middle East calling for a renewal of the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. Her arrival comes a day after Israel withdrew from a five-day operation in Gaza to hunt down Palestinian militants, who have been firing dozens of rockets into Israel. Rice called attention to both Israel and Hamas-backed militants responsibility for the violence. Rice said, "There needs to be a stop to the rockets. There needs to be an awareness of what is happening to innocent civilians and an effort to prevent innocent people from being harmed."
