Mike Tyson is expected to attend a noon news conference today at the Lincoln Theatre in Washington, where the former world champion will announce his intentions to fight Ireland's Kevin McBride on June 11 at MCI Center, his adviser, Shelly Finkel, said last night. The Sun reported last month that McBride (32-4-1, 27 knockouts) and Germany's Andreas Sidon (26-5, 20 KOs) were among Tyson's prospective rivals for a bout on Showtime pay per view. Tyson (50-5, 44 knockouts) has, in fact, chosen to meet McBride, who has won his past seven fights by knockout.

Cardinal Johannes Joachim Degenhardt, 76, archbishop of Paderborn, died yesterday of heart failure in Paderborn, in western Germany. Viewed as a conservative, he was appointed cardinal last year by Pope John Paul II. Cardinal Degenhardt was known as a staunch opponent of abortion as well as an advocate of political cooperation in Europe and tolerance between Germans and foreigners. In 1941, at age 15, he was arrested and imprisoned by the Gestapo for three weeks for his work as a youth leader in the Catholic group Bund Neudeutschland, or New German Union, which was banned by the Nazis.

RAMIEH, Lebanon - Lebanon's border with Israel was quiet yesterday as the Lebanese army and local Palestinian officials confined angry Palestinian protesters to their refugee camps. Although renewed clashes along the border were widely expected after Thursday's steep escalation of violence between Israelis and Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza strip, beefed-up army checkpoints along the coastal road and orders from camp leaders kept protesters away. "This is important and significant," said a high ranking official with the United Nations peacekeeping force in southern Lebanon, known as UNIFIL.

Anderson, held for nearly seven years.
