A court ruled that investigators may test the DNA of all young men in a French town, acceding to a request from the parents of a 13-year-old British girl raped and slain in a youth hostel. Caroline Dickinson was visiting the town of Pleine-Fougeres with schoolmates when she was raped and killed in July 1996. A homeless man was charged with the crime after police said he confessed, but his DNA tests did not match the sperm found on the victim's body.

TEHRAN -- She was known to Western media as "Mary" when she appeared before the world's cameras to speak for the Iranian Islamic revolutionaries who seized 52 Americans at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran in 1979. Masoumeh Ebtekar served as spokeswoman for the hostage-takers during the 444-day standoff, chosen for the English fluency she acquired growing up in the United States. But she was also a believer 30-some years ago, she has conceded in recent interviews, in the cause of punishing Washington for its role in a 1953 coup that brought to power the hated shah, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.

A scandal about the sexual abuse of Congolese women and children by U.N. officials and peacekeepers intensified Friday with the broadcast of explicit pictures of a French U.N. worker and Congolese girls and his claim that there was a network of pedophiles at the U.N. mission in Congo. ABC News' "20/20" program showed pictures taken from the computer of a French U.N. transport worker. The hard drive reportedly contained thousands of photos of him with hundreds of girls.
