Baltimore police are investigating what appears to be the city's latest case of witness intimidation - the ransacking and burning of a Northwest Baltimore family's home. The family, who have been living in Howard Park since 1999, found the phrase "rats must be killed" spray-painted in bright red on a wall inside their burned-out foyer last week. In addition to the graffiti and fire, intruders had upended furniture, tipped over a cabinet and smashed drinking glasses in the two-story, four-bedroom home that had been renovated by the family over the years.

CHAGUGANG, China - Believing that a school would be turned into a hospital for urban SARS patients, thousands of residents of this rural town ransacked the interior of the four-story building Sunday night. Chagugang, an agricultural market town about 12 miles northwest of the port of Tianjin, was quiet yesterday morning, but the mood was taut a day after the first riot in China related to the deadly disease, severe acute respiratory syndrome. Scores of police officers and two buses of paramilitary troops in riot gear guarded the ravaged junior high school, which was suddenly closed last week to be rebuilt into a facility with 200 individual bedrooms.

KUNDUZ, Afghanistan - The cabinets at Kunduz Public Hospital were smashed and looted, trash and filth were everywhere, wide puddles of blood pooled on the floor, a Taliban fighter lay dead on a rug and another lay dying, and Dr. Mohammed Usman was furious. Not only had the hospital been stripped bare of medicine, bandages and other supplies by the retreating Taliban, but all its doctors had been conscripted by Northern Alliance commanders to minister to their wounded, leaving hundreds here uncared for. Usman is not on the staff - he works for the Swedish Committee for Afghanistan - but he had come in yesterday to offer help and found himself working alone.
