Police wielding nightsticks clashed with protesters here Tuesday in an increasingly violent weeklong strike by public employees opposed to free-market reforms the government says are essential to rescuing Colombia's economy. Strikers threw stones, and police replied with water cannons and nightsticks, trying to clear protesters from areas around public buildings. Tensions are expected to escalate today, when protesters plan to occupy the capital's main plaza.

April 12, 2006 | From the Associated Press
The National Archives agreed to seal previously public CIA and Pentagon records and to keep silent about the role of U.S. intelligence in the reclassification, according to an agreement released under the Freedom of Information Act. The 2002 agreement, requested three years ago by the Associated Press and released this week, shows archivists were concerned about reclassifying previously available documents -- many of them more than 50 years old -- but nonetheless agreed to keep mum.
