WORLD BRAZIL Exit Polls Show Cordoso Likely To Win

Fernando Henrique Cardoso was expected to win Monday's election for the presidency of Brazil, according to exit polls. Cardoso, who tamed Brazil's inflation as finance minister, received 45 percent of the vote, according to a poll by the Gallup Institute. His closest rival, socialist Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, received 25 percent.

The six other candidates polled 17 percent, while 12 percent of voters cast blank or null ballots, according to the Estado de Sao Paulo newspaper, which commissioned the Gallup survey. The official vote-counting was to start this morning. Voters were also choosing 27 state governors, 54 of the 81 senators, all 513 lower house deputies and 1,059 state legislators. AP CROATIA U.S. And U.N. Split On NATO Airstrikes

The United Nations balked Monday when Defense Secretary William Perry asked for support for intensified NATO airstrikes against Bosnian Serb forces.

After a closed-door meeting lasting nearly three hours in Split, the U.N.'s top official in Bosnia made no firm commitment to the airstrike proposal.

Perry and Yasushi Akashi, the U.N. special representative in the region, said they had drawn closer to a "convergence of opinion."

But Akashi said the safety of U.N. peacekeepers, not the forcefulness of NATO airstrikes, remained the top priority. Asked whether he agreed that the United Nations would allow tougher airstrikes, Akashi said, "I can't comment on that." AP SOMALIA Warlord Issues Demands To U.N. Allies

Somalian warlord Mohamed Farrah Aidid marked the anniversary Monday of a battle that killed 18 Americans by making renewed demands for compensation from Washington and the United Nations.

During the clash a year ago, the body of a U.S. soldier was dragged through the streets of Mogadishu as Aidid's supporters laughed and cheered. The battle marked the beginning of the end of U.S. involvement in Somalia. The last U.S. soldiers withdrew March 25.

Aidid told a rally organized to commemorate the battle that relations among Somalia, the United States and the United Nations were linked to payment of compensation for the loss of Somalian lives at the hands of "foreign aggressors." He did not specify an amount. AP NATION WASHINGTON Clinton Makes Appeal For Trade Pact

President Bill Clinton, preaching to open-trade advocates from Congress and five previous administrations, said Monday that failure to pass a new world trade agreement this year could cost the U.S. economy $70 billion.

"The work has been done, the path to the future is clear, our obligations are plain . . . and let's do it now and do it this year," Clinton said.

At issue is a market-opening revision of the 123-nation General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade. The trade pact would cut global tariffs by an average of 40 percent and would provide a new dispute-resolution mechanism.

The House is scheduled to vote on the agreement Wednesday; the Senate will vote on Dec. 1. AP FLORIDA NASA Explores Rwanda's Wild Kingdom
