SEOUL, South Korea - Three U.S. soldiers were assaulted on a Seoul subway over the weekend, and one was briefly abducted by South Korean university students on their way to an anti-American demonstration, the U.S. military reported yesterday. The U.S. Embassy here lodged an immediate protest with the South Korean government over the incident and the way it was handled by local police. There were sharply conflicting versions of who was at fault in what apparently started as a brawl on the subway.

BY LATE FALL, Washington expects to have its first memorial dedicated to black Civil War veterans. As many have acknowledged, it's a long overdue tribute.More than 180,000 black men participated in the war, and the overwhelming majority of those fought for the Union. Many were slaves who became free men by enlisting in the military. A large number were from Maryland, mostly Eastern Shore and Southern Maryland plantations and some from Baltimore.One of those soldiers went on to play a key role in black people's fight for racial equality in Baltimore.

Every hospital in the nation could soon have a device that would show physicians immediately whether a cancer treatment is effective on a tumor, and if it happens, the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory in North Laurel would have royalties for years to come. One of the most recent inventions to come from the lab - and one the technology office is trying hard to license for a commercial product - is an infrared imaging system that will allow physicians a peek inside cancerous tumors, showing activity level, density, size and whether cancer drugs are having an effect.

Last Sunday, The Sun published a comprehensive article by Middle East correspondent John Murphy, reporting that since 2000 Israel has sent more than 5,000 Palestinian juveniles to jail under a largely concealed military justice system. Based on months of detailed work, Murphy documented how a number of juveniles have been arrested - often on trivial charges - and how they are receiving increasingly harsh sentences. Based on statistics from human rights organizations, Israeli military documents and his own reporting, Murphy showed that many of the juveniles are detained for throwing stones and lesser offenses such as membership in a "banned organization" - a charge that can stem from such nonviolent actions as setting up chairs for meetings or putting up posters for militant groups such as Hamas or Islamic Jihad.
