Soldiers sealed off Suva with roadblocks Friday and fired on Melanesian youths who rampaged through the streets of the capital, looting shops and setting fire to buildings. At least 13 people were arrested and 12 were injured when the troops opened fire. There was no immediate word on what started the rioting in this South Pacific island nation, which was the scene of a military coup last May that overthrew Prime Minister Timoci Bavadra.
