Saddam Hussein has promised to carry his "jihad," or holy war, to the streets of the United States. Just last week, the Iraqi president called for worldwide "commando" attacks, proclaiming that those who died committing terrorist acts would be martyrs in the "mother of all battles."

A man accused of being delinquent with more than $200,000 in support payments pleaded not guilty Tuesday in Superior Court to one felony charge of continuing to miss child-support payments. Prosecutors say Larry Lee Roberts, 47, owes more than $260,000 in child-support payments and interest to his three teenage children and their mother in Newbury Park. A judge sentenced Roberts to one year in jail last year after he was convicted of a misdemeanor charge of failing to pay support.

A sports car traveling an estimated 100 m.p.h. and passing cars on the right shoulder of Interstate 5 swerved out of control Sunday night and rammed an embankment, killing its driver and passenger, the California Highway Patrol said. CHP officers said the driver--Gary Lee Roberts of Laguna Hills--and the passenger--William Scott Carpenter, 27, of Memphis--were not wearing seat belts and were thrown from the car. Both died at the scene.
