Bush, Blair discuss timetable for Iraq action
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Bush said Friday he would welcome a second U.N. resolution on Iraq but only if it led to the prompt disarming of Saddam Hussein. Pushing for a new resolution, British Prime Minister Tbny Blair called confronting Iraq “a test of the international community”
Both leaders dismissed Iraq’s offer to host U.N. weapons inspectors before their next interim report, with Bush calling the invitation a charade meant to “string the inspectors along.”
Though the leaders are largely in agreement on most Iraq issues, the news conference after their two-hour White House meeting revealed differences over diplomatic tactics and the extent of Saddam’s threat.
On the idea of a second resolution, Bush said, “It’d be welcome if it is yet another signal that we’re intent upon disarming Saddam Hussein.” He was notably less positive about the idea than Blair, who said it is important that the U.N. “comes together again” and passes a resolution.
Revisions to labor laws could mean no overtime
WASHINGTON (AP) — Heeding the complaints of business, the Bush administration is revamping decades-old labor regulations in an overhaul that could force many Americans to work longer hours without overtime pay.
The administration argues that the pillars of American labor law, which established the 40-hour work week, a minimum wage and overtime pay, are antiquated. But labor unions fear changes would severely restrict who is legally required to be paid for overtime work.
“Nothing prohibits employers from requiring as many hours as they want,” said Chris Owens, public policy director for the AFL-CIO. “The overtime pay requirement is the only thing that acts as a brake on excessive work hours.”
Rioters overrun Ivory Coast’s airport
ABIDJAN, Ivory Coast (AP) — A 5,000-strong stone-throwing mob invaded Ivory Coast’s main airport Friday, storming planes on the tarmac and taunting, slapping and spitting at terrorized French families in flight from their former West African colony.
French forces in cannon-mounted armored vehicles took up positions in and around the runway, backed by helicopters clattering overhead. At one point the French briefly squared off against Ivory Coast forces — rifles locked, loaded and aimed.
The day was one of the most eventful in a week of often-violent protests over a French-brokered deal to end Ivory Coast’s 4-month-old civil war.
