SOCHI, Russia (AP) — Salvage workers scrambled Friday to collect wreckage from the Black Sea, gathering evidence that might tell whether a terrorist attack or an errant Ukrainian missile brought down a Russian plane full of Israelis. Grief-stricken relatives gathered in this southern resort to identify bodies of their loved ones.
Seventy-eight people — most of them Russian immigrants in Israel returning to Russia for the Jewish Sukkot, holiday — were killed when the Sibir Airlines flight from Tel Aviv to Novosibirsk exploded over the Black Sea on Thursday.
U.S. intelligence officials believe the plane was accidentally hit by a Ukrainian S-200, or SA-5, missile — a large sur
face-to-air missile built to shoot down heavy bombers flying at high altitudes.
The United States tracked the missile during a Ukrainian military exercise with satellites that sense the heat of its launch, and officials said the time of the launch coincided with the disaster.
Ukrainian officials heatedly denied the allegation, but Ukrainian Prime Minister Anatoliy Kinakh appeared to soften Kiev’s stance on Friday with the comment that the U.S. version “has a right to exist.”Troops seize Palestine towns
HEBRON, West Bank (AP) — Mideast truce efforts crumbled Friday as Israeli troops backed by dozens of armored vehicles seized two Palestinian neighborhoods in this West
Bank city in retaliation for deadly attacks on Israelis.
Five Palestinians — two gunmen and three civilians - -were killed by Israeli fire in the pre-dawn incursion. More than 10,000 angry mourners poured into the streets for the funeral procession, led by dozens of men firing in the air. Elsewhere in the West Bank, an Israeli motorist was killed in a Palestinian shooting ambush.
One of Yasser Arafat’s top lieutenants on Friday openly defied the Palestinian leader, who had ordered his forces to try to prevent attacks on Israelis as part of the truce deal.
Marwan Barghouti, a leader of Arafat’s Fatah movement in the West Bank, said the Palestinian uprising would continue. “This uprising didn’t begin with a decision and will not end with a decision from anyone,” Barghouti said.Timetables set for wireless 911
WASHINGTON (AP) — The government gave some of the nation’s mobile phone carriers more time to develop technology that allows emergency personnel to quickly locate callers who dial 911 from wireless phones.
The Federal Communications Commission approved plans from five companies trying to comply with a 1996 rule requiring that they have the system by the end of 2005, the agency said Friday.
The five carriers — Nextel, Sprint, Verizon, AT&T Wireless and Cingular — had sought revised schedules, with some citing problems getting equipment from manufacturers. These companies serve more than three-quarters of the country’s cell phone subscribers.
