New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - June 14, 2003, New Braunfels, Texas World Briefly- I Death roll rising in Iraqi-American battle BALAD, Iraq (AP) — Iraqis hiding in a thicket of reeds attacked a U.S. tank column, igniting a fierce battle that drew in Apache helicopters and Bradley armored vehicles. Twenty-seven Iraqis were killed Friday, raising to IOO the number of anti-American fighters slain in a U.S. operation to hunt down Saddam Hussein supporters. It’s the biggest U.S. military operation since Saddam s regime fell in April. Staged by the 3rd and 4th Infantry Divisions, the fighting follows the U.S. strategy of luring opposition holdouts into the open, where their assault rifles and rocket launchers are no match for American forces equipped with computerized weaponry and heavy armor. Israel widening its campaign against Hamas JERUSALEM (AP) — Despite appeals to break a cycle of attack and counterattack, Israel broadened its campaign against Palestinian militants Friday, saying it will strike political as well as military leaders who target Israel with terrorism. In new attacks against Hamas on Friday — the sixth and seventh in four days — Israel killed an operative of the group in a missile attack in Caza City and three hours later fired rockets at a building just a block from the home of Hamas founder Sheik Ahmed Yassin. Secretary of State Colin Powell called for restraint by all sides, but he emphasized it was important to halt terror strikes in order to stop the cycle of violence. Militants, .security officers clash in Iran’s city streets TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Hundreds of pro-cleric militants and security forces clashed with Iranians throughout the capital late Friday, firing machine guns in the air and using tear gas and batons to put down public opposition to the country’s hard-line regime. The clashes were the most intense and widespread of four consecutive nights of clashes in Tehran, which were sparked by university students and snowballed into broader displays of opposition to Iran’s clerical establishment. Drop in producer prices brings prospect of deflation WASHINGTON (AP) — The threat of national deflation, an economically dangerous long-term slide in prices, rose anew Friday with a second monthly decline in wholesale costs. The Federal Reserve is expected to shave interest rates this month to guard against possibly worse problems. The Labor Department reported Friday that its Producer Price Index, which measures prices before they reach consumers, fell 0.3 percent in May from April. That decline followed a record 1.9 percent plunge in wholesale prices registered from March to April.
