The Muslim faithful began arriving before dawn, searching for spots to lay down ceremonial prayer rugs. The men and boys sat in neat rows on a baseball field, facing Mecca. Behind them, separated by a dugout, the women gathered with the girls and prepared to chant the Eid, Islam's centuries-old prayer. There were those dressed in the traditional robes of India, Pakistan or the Middle East, but also others wearing three-piece suits or blue jeans. By 8 a.m.

Israel Radio reported that 10 Palestinians and three policemen were hurt during the clash, in which demonstrators and riot police hurled shoes at each other just outside the Al Aqsa Mosque, Islam's third-holiest shrine.

In a move aimed at calming the sometimes frantic pace of Joan Rivers' late-night show and improving its ratings, the show's producer has been replaced with one who used to work for Barbara Walters.

Ramadan Mohamed, who had spent a career riding atop a crudely customized Toyota truck that was mounted with a .50-caliber machine gun, was feeling cheated. Sitting idle in the courtyard of a large residential compound that houses the headquarters of his leader, Mohammed Farah Aidid, Ramadan expressed bitter regret that a final victory had eluded his militia and now might slip away forever. "Everyone knows that Aidid is the power and cannot be stopped," he told a visiting reporter.
