Gary Mikulich was arrested 500 miles away in the Upper Peninsula and charged with trying to use an explosive to damage the McNamara Federal Building, which houses the FBI, Internal Revenue Service, immigration court and other agencies.  A tool bag holding a metal cash box was discovered Feb. 26 and brought inside the building, but it sat until a Federal Protective Service officer decided to X-ray it on March 18, saw electrical components inside and summoned the Detroit police bomb squad, which blew it up miles away at a city park, the FBI said.  THIEVES STEAL DIAMOND RING AT TIFFANY'S IN PARIS  PARIS — Police say three men pretending to be cus  74*/M*  SAN GABRIEL, Calif. (AP) — For months, neighbors noticed a number of pregnant Asian women coming and going at all hours at an upscale townhouse development in suburban Los Angeles.  They finally found out the home was being used as a maternity center for Chinese mothers paying thousands of dollars to give birth in the United States so their children would automatically gain citizenship, city officials said.  The discovery of the center where women stayed before and after delivering their babies at local hospitals was unusual and a possible sign that birthright citizenship is being exploited as a lucrative business, an immigration activist said.  “What this could suggest is ... they’re taking it to the next step,” said Mark Kriko-rian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, which advocates stricter limits on immigration. "Whoever is organizing this type of operation is buying or leasing a home to become a clearing house. That’s a serious problem.”  But it’s not illegal.  Women from other countries have long traveled to the U.S. legally on tourist or student visas and given birth because U.S. law automatically entitles children born on U.S. soil to citizenship.  While some stay under the false assumption that they too can gain citizenship if their child is U.S.-born,  'BABY DOC' DUVALIER HOSPITALIZED IN HAITI  PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — Former Haitian dictator Jean-Claude “Baby Doc” Duvalier has been hospitalized after having chest pains, his longtime companion and associates said Thursday without giving details about his condition.  Duvalier, who made a surprise return to the Caribbean nation in January, was admitted Wednesday night, companion Véronique Roy said as she took a break from visiting him at the Canape Vert hospital in Port-au-Prince.  many return to their home countries convinced a U.S. birth certificate will afford their child more opportunities in the future.  Often, the women are wealthy and able to pay the steep costs of the trip and medical care.  Krikorian noted that some travel agencies abroad are known to arrange such trips for individuals but not to specialized clinics such as the one in San Gabriel.  Officials in the suburb that’s home to a large Asian population shut down the house for building code violations earlier this month after receiving a complaint about excessive noise, over-crowding and possible building permit violations, said Clayton A. Anderson, the city’s neighborhood improvement services manager.  Inspectors found seven newborns being kept in clear plastic bassinets in a kitchen converted to a nursery.  "There was a woman there who said she was a nurse but she kind of scram-bled away when we got there,” Anderson said.  FROM THE WIRE  From The Associated Press  tomers stole a $353,200 diamond ring from the Tiffany & Co. store in Paris’ upscale Printemps department  store.  A Paris police official said Thursday’s heist happened at around 10:30 GMT. Three men posing as customers asked to look at several very expensive rings. They eventually decided on a three-carat diamond set on a platinum ring.  The thieves took advantage of a moment’s inattention by the sales person.

The promises were immediately rejected by many activists who called for demonstrations around the country on Friday in response to a crackdown that protesters say killed dozens of anti-government marchers in the city of Daraa.  The coming days will be a crucial test of the surge of popular discontent that has unseated autocrats in Ttinisia and Egypt and threatens to push several others from power.
