Some information appearing in two stories in the Daily Nebraskan on Fri
day, Feb. 14, was incorrect.
In the Law and Order briefs for Friday, the address for Lincoln Southeast
High School was incorrectly given as 2635 S. 63rd St.
The correct address is 2930 S. 37th St.
Also, in the story “Fighter jet rests in Lincoln; students inspired by sight,”
the students were identified as members of ROTC. They are specifically mem
bers of the Naval ROTC program.
In the same story, Kent Leonard was identified as a cadet. Leonard’s offi

North Korean defector shot
Attack on Lee Han
young further height
ens tensions between
the two Koreas.
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — A
North Korean defector with family ties
to the leader of the communist country
was shot and critically wounded Sat
urday in an attack that South Korean
police blamed on North Korean agents.
The man shot was not Hwang Jang
Yop, who defected Wednesday and was
a close confidant of North Korean
leader Kim Jong Jl. *
Lee Han-young, 36, was shot Sat
urday night outside the apartment
where he had been staying in Bundang,
police said. Bundang is a southern sub
urb of Seoul. A
Lee, a nephew of North Korean
leader Kim’s first wife, Sung Hae-rim,
defected to South Korea in 1982.
The attack further heightened ten
sions between North and South Korea,
which have been locked in a hostile
standoff this week over the defection
of Hwang. North Korea alleged Hwang
had been kidnapped, and had threat
ened unspecified retaliation.
South Korea put its police and mili
tary on high alert after Hwang defected
while visiting China, and it stepped up
security even moreafter Lee was shot.
It called an emergency meeting Sun
day of top security officials.
Authorities said they were trying to
determine if there was a connection
between the defection in China and the
shooting in South Korea.
Before the attack, a woman pur
porting to be a magazine reporter
called the apartment to ask when Lee
would be home, police said.
A neighbor told police he heard a
scream and looked out of his home to
see two men confronting Lee at the
entrance to the apartment. One man
held a gun to Lee, neighbor Park Jong
eun said. The man shot Lee in the chest
and head, and both attackers ran away.
Lee uttered only two words alter the
shooting: “Spy, spy,” said Nam Sang
won, an owner of the apartment where
Lee had been staying.
Lee held up two fingers, perhaps
indicating the number of attackers.
Ydnhap news agency said police
found two shells from a Belgian-made
Browning pistol—a standard weapon
for North Korean agents.
Military plans hostage rescue in Peru
LIMA, Peru (AP)—U.S. and Pe
ruvian paratroopers would plunge into
the compound from whirring helicop
ters, plant explosives at six points
around the diplomatic mansion and
storm the building.
In a nighttime operation that would
take oily seven minutes — but could
leave as many as 90 people dead —
soldiers would seize leftist Tupac
Amaru rebels and try to rescue 72 hos
At least that’s the military plan, if
Peru’s hostage standoff cannot be re
solved peacefully, a major Peruvian
newspaper reported Sunday.
But Diaro La Republica reported
that the army, fearing high casualties,
wants to leave the raid as a last resort.
The newspaper quoteda Feb. 5 “In
tervention Plan” by the Army Intelli
gence Agency as saying “it cannot be
assured that a military action will be
clean; there could be numerous ...
An assault on the residence could bring
with it the deaths of everyone who is in
Ttipac Amaru spokesman
In fact, “an assault on the residence
could bring with it the deaths of every
one who is in there,” a Tupac Amaru
spokesman, Isaac Velazco, told The
Associated Press on Sunday.
A spokesman for the U.S. South
ern Command reached in Panama de
nied any U.S. military planning to free
“We are not involved in the situa
tion down there,” said the spokesman,
who would not give his name. “There
are no American citizens inside and we
are not involved. It is a matter for the
La Republica said that the military
plan calls for backup from the U.S.
Southern Command, using Hispanic
soldiers from the U.S. Special Forces.
Fujimori said several weeks after
the crisis began that he twice turned
down offers by the U.S. government
for use of its Delta Force commandos
to help resolve the crisis.
Hate broccoli? It’s genetic
SEATTLE (AP) — Knowing
this may not make broccoli taste any
better, but if you find the stuff dis
gusting the reason may be in your
Scientists studying people’s
food preferences are finding a
strong inherited tendency to like or
reject all sorts of foods — includ
ing many that the health gurus say
are good for you.
Foods like broccoli, Brussels
sprouts and mustard greens, which
are naturally bitter anyway, can
seem unpleasantly so to some be
cause of the taste genes people in
Indeed, it seems the whole world
can be split up into three categories
— non-tasters, tasters and super
tasters — depending on the inten
sity of the way they perceive bitter
ness, sweetness and other taste sen
“Super-tasting children will
probably not like Brussels sprouts
or broccoli, no matter what you do.
The reasons are genetic,” said
Adam Drewnowski of the Univer
sity of Michigan.
Researchers in this emerging
field categorize people by the way
they respond to the taste of a thy
roid medicine called 6-n-propylth
iouracil, or PROP. About 25 percent
of white people cannot taste PROP
at all, so they are known as non-tast
ers. Half are considered tasters be
cause they find it mildly bitter. An
other 25 percent, the super-tasters,
find it grossly bitter.
Women are more likely than
men to be super-tasters, and Asians
and blacks are more apt than whites
to have this trait.
The field of research is so new
that some of the findings seem to
conflict with each other. But in gen
eral, here is what the studies show:
■ Super-tasters are apparently
more sensitive to tastes because
they have more taste buds on-their
■ Super-tasters are more likely
to find bitter foods to be nastily bit
ter and sweet things to be cloyingly
