More than 600 passengers and crew members who fell ill aboard a Royal Caribbean cruise ship last week were stricken by shigellosis, a virulent intestinal disease, investigators from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Monday. The source of the shigella bacteria aboard the San Pedro-based Viking Serenade had not yet been determined, and CDC investigators were sampling the ship's food and water and testing its food preparers for signs of infection.

Los Angeles County health officials Monday announced a sharp increase in the number of reported cases of shigella, a bacteria-induced disease that most commonly strikes infants, causing diarrhea, fever, nausea and cramping. As of Nov. 19, there were 2,335 cases reported this year in the county, contrasted with 1,298 in the same period of 1987, the Department of Health Services said.

A city bulldozer on Thursday razed a downtown alley full of lean-to shelters where 125 homeless people had been living. The encampment, made up of shelters built with wooden pallets, cardboard and sheets of plastic, sprang up nine months ago in a filthy alley behind the Union Rescue Mission. On Thursday morning, the alley denizens awakened to the sight of the bulldozer, backed by three dump trucks, poised to mow down their belongings.
