up opposition protest in Azerbaijan
BAKU, Azerbaijan (AP) —Thin-cheon-wielding police in riot gear beat opposition protesters who gathered in Azerbaijan’s capital shouting “Freedom!” and demanding a redo of disputed parliamentary elections.
Some 15,000 opposition activists rallied in Baku to protest the outcome of the Nov. 6 parliamentary elections, which they claimed were rigged. The rally was the latest in a series of opposition protests.
When the demonstrators tried to set up a permanent protest on a square in downtown Baku, police rushed in to disperse them. Some protesters, including women, were beaten while lying on the floor. Others threw stones at police, who protected themselves with shields.
Authorities rushed in after demonstrators said they were going to hold a permanent protest in a downtown square. Hundreds of soldiers, police and plainclothes police agents pushed protesters away from the square, shattered a stand used by opposition leaders and broke the opposition’s orange banners.

SUPPORTERS, OPPONENTS ATTEND DUELING RALLIES
— Three months after the mother of a fallen soldier led a 26-day anti-war vigil near President Bush’s ranch, dueling rallies for peace activists and Bush supporters drew much smaller crowds Saturday.
About a dozen Bush supporters gathered in downtown Crawford on the rainy, cool morning with several signs, one saying “Real America won’t wimp out." Throughout the morning a dozen or so others, including some tourists leaving nearby souvenir stores, stopped by the tent for a few minutes and said they also supported Bush.
Gary Qualls, whose son Louis died with other Marines in Iraq last fall, said war protesters are being disrespectful by using the names of fallen soldiers whose families support Bush.
“They have no right to drag their names through the dirt,” said Qualls, who created a pro-Bush camp in downtown Crawford in August.
Several miles away, fewer than IOO war protesters gathered on the same I-acre private lot that a landowner let them use during the last few weeks of the August vigil led by a fallen soldier’s mother, Cindy Sheehan. The group used the lot about a mile from Bush’s property after Sheehan’s origin^ site, in ditches off the main road leading to the ranch, became too crowded.
Protesters returned this week as Bush spends the Thanksgiving holiday at his ranch.
PROMINENT SITE CHOSEN FOR EISENHOWER MEMORIAL
— Dwight D. Eisenhower had been dead for more than a decade before scholars began calling him one of the greatest
presidents in American history.
Now planners have chosen one of Washington’s most prominent sites for a grand memorial to the humble man from Abilene, Kan.
The plaza-style memorial across the street from the National Mall would honor Eisenhower’s legacy of public service, joining the collection of nearby monuments to Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
“It was his total approach to domestic and international politics that set him apart," said Retired Air Force Brig. Gen. Carl Reddel, executive director of the Eisenhower Memorial Commission. “He's a much more profound figure than many realized.”
The memorial site, selected earlier this year, was approved this month by the National Capital Memorial Advisory Commission. If it passes muster with two other advisory groups, the commission will formally recommend it to Congress next year.

EARTHQUAKE IN CENTRAL CHINA KILLS 14 - An earthquake with a magnitude of at least 5.5 shook part of central China on Saturday, killing at least 14 people and injuring nearly 400.
The official Xinhua News Agency said the quake happened at about 9 a.m., with the epicenter in Ruichang, a city of 420,000 in Jiangxi province.
Hundreds of homes collapsed and thousands were damaged, Xinhua said.
“The earthquake this morning was quite scary,” said a shopkeeper in Ruichang reached by telephone who would only give her surname, Zhou.
Many people in Ruichang were staying outside for fear of aftershocks. Zhou said she felt a milder trembling at about I p.m.

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s hard-line president said Saturday the Bush administration should be tried on war crimes charges, and he denounced the West for pressuring Iran to curb its controversial nuclear program.
“You, who have used nuclear weapons against innocent people, who have used uranium ordnance in Iraq, should be tried as war criminals in courts,” Mah-moud Ahmadinejad said in an apparent reference to the United States.
Ahmadinejad did not elaborate, but he apparently was referring to the U.S. military’s reported use of artillery shells packed with depleted uranium, which is far less radioactive than natural uranium and is left over from the process of enriching uranium for use as nuclear fuel.
Since the Iraq war started in 2003, American forces have fired at least 120 tons of shells packed with depleted uranium, an extremely dense mate-

“Who in the world are you to accuse Iran of suspicious nuclear armed activity?" Ahmadinejad said during a nationally televised ceremony marking the 36th anniversary of the establishment of Iran’s volunteer Basij paramilitary force.
Iran has been under intense international pressure to curb its nuclear program, which the United States claims is part of an effort to produce nuclear weapons. Iran denies such claims and says its pro
gram is aimed at generating electricity.
Iran insists that it has the right to fully develop the program including enrichment of nuclear fuel.
On Thursday, the European Union accused Iran of having
documents that show how to make nuclear warheads and joined the United States in warning Tehran it could be referred to the U.N. Security Council for possible sanctions.
Iran has temporarily stopped its enrichment pro-

Iran also has rejected Euro pean calls to halt work at it: uranium conversion facility near the central city of Isfa han.
