Archbishop’s wife threatens hunger strike
VATICAN CITY (AP) — The wife of an archbishop whose marriage scandalized the Vatican pleaded tearfully Saturday to be allowed to see her husband and threatened to go on a hunger strike if church officials denied her request.
Maria Sung suggested that the church was holding her husband, Archbishop Emmanuel Milingo, against his
will after he met with the pope and Vatican officials in an effort to open a dialogue and avert his excommunication.
Fighting escalates on day of mourning
SKOPJE, Macedonia (AP)
— Macedonian army helicopter gunships rushed Saturday to try rescue a police unit encircled by ethnic Albanian rebels in the mountains of northern Macedonia,
state television reported.
The escalation in fighting — which threatened to further erode confidence in a tentative peace agreement for this troubled Balkan nation — came as Macedonians buried seven soldiers and declared a day of mourning following a spate of deadly rebel attacks.
The rebel fighters reportedly surrounded an unspecified number of policemen in the village of Radusa, near the border with Kosovo.
