NAIROBI, Kenya -- Thousands of frightened Chadians took advantage of a lull in fighting yesterday to flee N'Djamena when rebels withdrew from the capital after two days of heavy clashes with government troops. Officials, however, warned that battles probably were not over, and rebel leaders vowed to attack again. "Rebels still have a capability of fighting," said Capt. Christophe Prazuck, spokesman for the French Ministry of Defense, which has 1,900 troops deployed in the central African country and has evacuated nearly 1,000 foreigners.

JAKARTA, Indonesia - The Indonesian military said yesterday that food and fuel were running short in the northern province of Aceh, where the government began a major military offensive against separatist rebels last week. UNICEF warned of an impending crisis for the civilian population with the collapse of weak health services, and reported arson to more than 200 schools in the past five days. The increasing difficulties for civilians came after the Indonesian government pledged that the offensive, which is intended to suppress the rebels within six months, would be different from those in the past.

In today's culture, rebels often get a bad rap. But not all of them deserve the negative connotations that come with the word. A number of people who were once labeled rebels are now considered heroes by mainstream America, according to Cherrie Woods, the director of marketing and public relations at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History and Culture. The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was once considered a rebel. So was Rosa Parks, she said. "In the '50s and '60s, any African-Americans who were not treated as equals and chose to challenge this system were viewed as rebels," Woods said.

MOSCOW -- Rebels in the separatist republic of Chechnya struck back forcefully against Russian positions yesterday, conducting a series of raids against towns the Russian command had declared secure. The raids -- in which the rebels attacked the military command in two towns and a police checkpoint in a third -- forced Russian officers to admit to major setbacks in their 3-month-old campaign to reclaim rebel territory. Chechen Vice President Vakha Arsanov told Russia's Interfax news agency that the rebels had retaken control of a string of towns in eastern Chechnya.

KATYR-YURT, Russia -- During more than four months of war, this town of 10,000 people seemed to be one of the safest places in Chechnya. Russian troops encircled the community and controlled the roads leading in and out. As federal forces bombed the city of Grozny 22 miles to the east, refugees fleeing the destruction found a haven here. But all that changed Feb. 4 when a band of several hundred rebels arrived in Katyr-Yurt in the dead of night, wet from crossing the icy Sunzha River to escape from the Chechen capital.

LAS VEGAS -- It was a play in the second half Sunday afternoon that did not appear in the box score of top-seeded Nevada-Las Vegas' tense, 62-54 victory over Georgetown in the second round of the National Collegiate Athletic Association West Regional in Tucson, Ariz.UNLV's Larry Johnson had just completed a nine-point run to give the Runnin' Rebels a 44-29 cushion with 16 minutes left. As the muscular 6-foot-7, 250-pound forward ran back on defense, he did not bother to take a detour around the Hoyas' Brian Kelly, who had decked Rebels guard Greg Anthony in the first half.

Reading time, two minutes: Wait just a minute, Rutgers shoots less than 39 percent and blows away UNLV by 21? Serves the Rebels right after they skunked the Scarlet Knights by 42 last year. Coach Tark must have been really moved: he had the team bus take off from the arena without the sports information director and the guy had to find his own way to the Newark Airport, arriving just in time for the flight home.* After finishing dead last in the computer rankings for Division I football, Prairie View is back at it in hoops.
