Hundreds of Ku Klux Klan members and their supporters hurled rocks, bottles and mud on Saturday to interrupt a smaller group's "anti-intimidation march" through a county that has been all white for decades. Several of the marchers, estimated to number about 75 blacks and whites, were struck or grazed by the debris, but no serious injuries were reported. Eight members of the rock-throwing group were arrested, police said.

A band of seven white supremacists who marched through downtown Atlanta on Saturday to protest the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. national holiday met with a hail of bricks, rocks and bottles hurled by angry counterdemonstrators along the route. None of the marchers were hit as they paraded and chanted along the mile-long route, but several National Guardsmen and law enforcement officers were struck by projectiles from the crowds of counterdemonstrators, officials said.

For 23 hours a day, 169 men are confined to tiny two-man cells in an enclosed, three-level cell block called H-Unit. They can't eat in the mess hall. They can't mix with the other prisoners. They can't take a prison job. They can't leave their cells without handcuffs and shackles. The men in H-Unit are kept in "lock-down" not because they have committed worse crimes than the assorted bank robbers, drug dealers and kidnapers in the general population of the U.S. Penitentiary at Lompoc.
