Jolted awake by a dawn barrage of tank and mortar fire, Muazam Zesnuli predicted, correctly, that his barn stood no chance against the Macedonian army. So he raced to free his herd--a horse, two cows and a donkey--before huddling with his wife and two children in their basement. Ten hours later, the ethnic Albanian family emerged unharmed to find the barn burned and the farmhouse pocked with bullets and littered with broken glass. But that was not the end of their ordeal.

The United Nations envoy to Sudan said Wednesday that the Sudanese government had stopped militia attacks on villages in the crisis-ridden Darfur region and was making progress in improving security there.

After its troops blasted guerrillas in the foothills overlooking this city with tank shells Tuesday, the Macedonian government gave ethnic Albanian rebels until midnight tonight to give up or face all-out war.

As leaders of the 12 European Community nations committed themselves to their historic first steps toward full political, economic and monetary union, one fact was clear: Germany had become a model. The German Bundesbank, with its degree of freedom from political control and tough anti-inflationary policies, the experience of Germany's recent monetary union and the country's loose federal structure all have emerged as important working examples for those shaping the future of Western Europe.
