NATION CALIFORNIA 2 On O.J. Jury Dismissed, Paper Reports

Two of the jurors in the O.J. Simpson murder case have been dismissed by Judge Lance Ito less than a week before opening arguments in the case, it was reported Saturday.

The Los Angeles Daily News identified the jurors as a 38-year-old Hispanic female letter carrier and a 48-year-old black man who works for the Hertz rental car corporation.

The letter carrier has been in an abusve relationship and the Hertz employee had falsely told lawyers during jury selection that he had never met Simpson, the newspaper said.

The two were expected to be replaced by alternate jurors, the paper said. Reuters

Del Amo is a former rubber manufacturing plant, from which benzene emissions are considered dangerous, said EPA regional spokeswoman Paula Bruin. Montrose is a former DDT plant. Reuters

The U.S. Army peacefully invaded Haiti to help restore exiled President Jean-Bertrand Aristide.

Although no date for the pullout has been announced, speculation has been that the Americans would hand over military control to a U.N. force sometime in March. Reuters

***** SOMALIA Gunmen Holding 15 Foreign U.N. Staff

The gunmen barricaded the office and began negotiations, Chattha said.
