The new commission, "Lettres d'Amour," was choreographed by Redha, a French-born Algerian Italian choreographer and onetime "Soul Train" dancer who traded acting for ballet at age 22.

CRACKDOWN BACKING: Algeria quietly sent a special envoy to Washington earlier this month in search of sympathy for its crackdown against fundamentalist Muslim militants and for its cancellation of parliamentary elections. By all accounts, the sympathy came through. . . . The envoy, Redha Malek, said his government canceled elections because the party that appeared almost sure to win--the fundamentalist Islamic Salvation Front--would have "destroyed democracy." U.S.

He was born into money and privilege, the son of immigrants who came to this country from Iraq looking for freedom and a better life. They found it, amassing wealth that gave him a home overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, tuition to a prestigious prep school, and a $50,000 Infiniti for his 16th birthday. But Farris Hassan, a lanky, 6-foot-2 straight-A student who loves to debate world politics and shuns typical teenage hangouts, didn't want it.

Iraqi security forces arrested five U.S. contractors suspected of playing a role in last month's slaying of an American in Baghdad's Green Zone, Iraqi security officials said Sunday. The suspects could face charges in an Iraqi court, which would make them the first Americans to stand trial before the Iraqi judiciary since the U.S. and Iraqi governments signed a bilateral security agreement late last year that in part allowed for such cases. Maj. Gen. Hussein Ali Kamal, the head of the Interior Ministry's intelligence service, said the men were being held for questioning in connection with the death of Jim Kitterman inside the sealed-off enclave, home to the Iraqi government and embassies.

The first program this week by the San Francisco Ballet concentrated on plotless musical visualizations. The second, which included the world premiere of Donald McKayle's "Gumbo Ya-Ya," Thursday at the War Memorial Opera House, was devoted to rituals of community. The actual world premiere of "Gumbo" (which means: everybody talk at once) was supposed to have happened at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, which commissioned the work.

As President Obama spoke, Baghdad barber Raymun Butrus trimmed eyebrows and clipped hair. His customers listened to the president's words between the clicking of scissors and the helicopter-like buzz of the generator that kept the shop lighted. Their feelings about America varied widely, and most said they had made up their minds about the speech beforehand. Atheer Dabagh, a welder with dirt-smudged hands, sat in the brown barber's chair, puffing on a cigarette.

The Shrine high school all-star football game will return to its original format of pitting Northern California against Southern California after seven years of matching California against Texas. The 51st annual game, which benefits Shriners Hospitals for Children, will be held July 13 at Mt. San Antonio College.
