Unless a solution is reached, flimsy boats filled with desperate asylum seekers may be pushed back into the sea, they said.

Everyone picking tunes Saturday at the Coronet Theatre sure was on friendly terms: Bob Neuwirth introduced lute player Sandy Bull as a pal of 28 years and said he goes back 11 with salsa specialist Ruben Blades; local folk singer Peter Case introduced close personal friend (and wife) Victoria Williams; and well, who hasn't been produced by, written songs with or at least been chummy with T Bone Burnett?

Notable achievements from the L.A. rock scene, 1987: THE HARDEST-WORKING MAN IN SHOW-BIZ: Chris D., hands down. Doing two terrific albums and regular live performances with his Divine Horsemen wasn't enough for Mr. DeJarnette in 1987. He also found time to take a sizable role as a government hit man in the big-screen thriller "No Way Out" (he also starred with John Doe and other locals in "Border Radio," which--though filmed a couple of years ago--just saw daylight this year).

Bodyguards of the minister of displacement and migration, who has been telling Iraqis it is safe to come home after five years of war, were involved in a rush-hour shooting Monday that police said killed a woman and injured six other people. Circumstances surrounding the incident were unclear. The ministry said traffic police fired toward the minister's convoy and that the bodyguards only fired into the air. Police said the bodyguards were trying to clear traffic by shooting into the air and that one of them accidentally aimed his gun into nearby cars.
