HAITI More Rights Monitors Sought

U.S. officials urged an increase in the number of international human-rights monitors in Haiti on Thursday, rejecting a demand by a senator in Haiti that the mission be removed.

"There needs to be an increase in the number of monitors there who can fully document the instances of human rights abuses that are so appalling," said State Department spokesman Mike McCurry.

In Haiti, Sen. Bernard Sansaricq said the existing U.N. mission, which numbers 100 including administrative help, is illegal and should leave the country.

"The international community wants to wipe us off the face of the earth," Sansaricq said. He was an architect of the move on Wednesday to install Supreme Court President Emile Jonassaint as the replacement for deposed President Jean-Bertrand Aristide. AP

Perez Balladares is a member of theo party that Noriega headed but campaigned hard to separate himself from the toppled general. AP

The war in this impoverished nation on the southwestern corner of the Arabian Peninsula broke out after months of tension between the conservative north and the formerly Marxist-ruled south. The two regions merged in May 1990.

Northern forces have claimed since Saturday to be on the verge of seizing Aden, a southern port on the Arabian Sea and the site of key oil facilities. But U.S. diplomats say the south has put up stiff resistance. The fall of Aden would doom the south's war effort. AP
