Transcript SEVENTEENTH TWENTY-THIRD Death row inmate Martin Gurule, who broke out of the Ellis Unit in Huntsville late Thanksgiving night, was found dead one week later in Harmon Creek. Gurule, 29, who was facing the death penalty for killing two men during a 1992 Corpus Christi robbery, was the only one of seven condemned killers to succeed in escaping. After using a hacksaw blade to cut through the fence of a recreation yard just before midnight on Thanksgiving, the group spent several hours on the roof of a prison building before sliding to the ground and running for the fences before dawn. Gurule was sentenced to death for shooting Minas "Mike" Piperis Oct. 12, 1992, during a robbery at a Corpus Christi restaurant which Piperis co-owned with his brother, George. Gurule was also charged with killing restaurant worker Anthony Staton, but that case never went to trial. On the eve of his impeachment hearings, President Bill Clinton ordered strikes against Iraq for not complying with United Nations arms inspectors. Four days of US and British raids on Iraq set back Baghdad's ballistic missile program by at least a year, said General Anthony Zinni, commander-in-chief of the US Central Command. Zinni said US forces hit 85 percent of their targets in Iraq and 74 percent of the strikes were "fully successful." The most surprising aspect of the operation was "the complete lack of resistance in any form" from Iraq. "He didn't react to us at all for some military reason," Zinni said, suggesting Saddam lacked confidence in his military ability. Baghdad ruled out future talks with the United Nations until Washington and London were brought to book for their four days of deadly seven missile attacks and crippling UN sanctions were lifted. Former UN weapons inspector Scott Ritter, who resigned his post last August to protest what he saw as lukewarm US and UN support for the inspection program, claimed the strikes had failed "to degrade Saddam's capabilities" and "actually made him stronger." "I can say without a shadow of doubt that ... those buildings (targeted in the raids) were empty, evacuated," Ritter told NBC television. "I think history will show that that Operation Desert Fox was a watershed event towards the resurgence of Iraq. This was a horrible mistake on the part of the United States," he added. LLXASl —K.1E,!, Gymnast Dominique Moceanu won court protection from her father, who she claims stalked her and tried to have her friends killed. But the Olympic gold medalist holds out hope of an even tual family reconciliation. "I was sad," Moceanu told The Associated Press hours after a state district judge ordered Dumitru Moceanu to stay away from his daughter for a full year. Judge John D. Montgomery issued his ruling that included innuendo from Dumitru Moceanu's attorney that the gymnast had been romantically involved with a married man. In the end, Montgomery ruled that Moceanu's father, not any of her friends, was the current threat in her life. While nothing during the hearing led Montgomery to believe Dumitru Moceanu set out to harm his daughter, he found the Romanian native's actions qualified as abuse under Texas law. "I do find family violence ... has occurred," the judge explained. "And it is likely to occur in the future." The ruling sent Ms. Moceanu into tears of relief and sorrow, while Dominique's father sat stunned. The injunction against him was only the latest chapter in a dramatic sequence that started when the gymnast decided to sue her parents for independence so she could force them to answer questions about the status of her finances. Moceanu, 17, was declared a legal adult, with her parents' begrudging consent in October. But that ruling only seemed to make her life more difficult. Moceanu said her father told her after her emancipation that a private investigator was watching her every move. Then, on Nov. 13, three Houston homicide detectives came to her new apartment with news that her father had allegedly asked a private investigator to arrange the murders of Brian Hug gins, who worked at the Moceanu gym, and Luminita Miscenco, her coach. When questioned about the murder-for-hire plot, Moceanu invoked his constitutional right to not offer self-incriminating testimony. timeline The pretrial of John William King began in Jasper, TX. King was the first of three men tried for the June 7 dragging death of James Byrd. The House Judiciary committee voted that the President Clinton impeach ment hearings should go before the House floor. President Clinton said that he has no intention of resigning and urges the House Judiciary committee to cen sure him instead of impeachment. President Bill Clinton traveled to Israel to help save the mideast peace process. Ricky Williams, running back for the University of Texas Longhom football team, won the Heisman Trophy. Veteran comidian-actor Norman Fell, who was best known as the cranky landlord on the hit series "Three's Company," died of cancer at the age of 74. The 22 hours of taped conversations between Monica Lewinsky and Linda Tripp were released to the media, giv ing the world the opportunity to hear Lewinsky's voice for the first time. 140- WORLD NEWS December • 1 4" 1
