BEIRUT - Syrian rebels are demanding the release of 1,000 female government detainees in exchange for the freedom of a group of Greek Orthodox nuns being held by opposition forces, according to an account published Friday in a pan-Arab newspaper. The proposed swap indicates that the nuns are now hostages -- contradicting earlier opposition assertions that the sisters were evacuated for their own safety during heavy fighting early this week in Maaloula, a Christian landmark town outside Damascus.

The announcement was widely viewed as an effort to shore up the standing of the Palestinian leadership in advance of next week's meeting in Berlin of Prime Minister Ahmed Korei and Condoleezza Rice, the U.S. national security advisor.

Israeli troops and militiamen of the South Lebanon Army on Sunday killed two Palestinian guerrillas and captured two others in a shoot-out in southern Lebanon, an army spokesman said. The patrol spotted four guerrillas before dawn inside Israel's self-proclaimed security zone near the village of Marjayoun, a few miles north of the Israeli border, and opened fire. There were no reported casualties among the Israeli or Lebanese troops. "A preliminary investigation established that the terrorists intended to carry out an attack on a northern settlement to kill Israelis," the army spokesman said, adding that the guerrillas carried Soviet-made Kalashnikov assault rifles, a grenade launcher, two American-made anti-tank rockets, wire cutters and explosives.

Madison Avenue-style advertising aimed at "selling" America to Middle Eastern audiences isn't likely to work and could backfire, warned the chairman of a presidential commission on public diplomacy. "There's more to America than Calvin Klein jeans--and that's the point," said Harold C. Pachios, chairman of the U.S. Advisory Commission on Public Diplomacy. "We are thought of as superficial, so we need to avoid anything that smacks of the superficial."
