Sharon wins crushing
victory in Israeli election
JERUSALEM (AP) — Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, who has taken a hard line against the Palestinian uprising, won a crushing victory in Israel’s election Tuesday, and TV projections showed his Likud and other hawkish parties easily winning most seats in parliament.
The prospect of progress on the Palestinian front now appears to depend on whether Sharon can form a coalition that will include the opposition Labor party, which campaigned on a pledge to restart peace negotiations with the Palestinians.
Troops clash with rebel fighters in Afghan battle
BAGRAM, Afghanistan (AP) — Hundreds of U.S. troops pressed toward rebel fighters in rugged mountain caves Tuesday, while warplanes bombed enemy positions in the fiercest battle in Afghanistan in nearly a year.
At least 18 rebels were killed in the assault. The U.S. military believes the fighters are loyal to renegade warlord Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, a powerful Pashtun strongman who has vowed to link his forces with remnants of al-Qaida and the ousted Taliban regime.
Putin raises specter of taking tougher line on Iraq
KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — Russian President Vladimir Putin warned Tuesday that Moscow, which has consistently pushed for a diplomatic solution to the crisis with Iraq, “may change its position” if Baghdad hampers U.N. weapons inspectors.
In London, British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw said the “damning and disturbing” report by U.N. weapons inspectors Monday proved Iraq was in “material breach* — or violation — of a U.N. disarmament resolution and inade war more likely. It was the first time Britain branded Iraq in material breach since inspectors resumed their work in November.
And in the Arab world, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak issued a vivid and grim warning that war will come “unless Iraq abides by the resolutions of international legitimacy and ceases to put obstacles in front of the international inspection operations.”
