4) This week's summary
of under-reported news

Compiled by Bob Nixon

* The European Union is breaking with the Bush administration on
Washington's global AIDS policy that pushes an abstinence-only agenda.
* The Pentagon is expanding its domestic intelligence operations and is
planning to conduct its own criminal investigations on terrorism, in
what civil liberties groups say is a White House attempt to expand
military spying on American citizens without a congressional hearing.
* A Truth and Reconciliation Commission is reviewing the Nov. 3, 1979
Greensboro, N.C. massacre of black and white demonstrators by 40 members
of the Ku Klux Klan and American Nazi Party.
