From Associated Press reports
CARACAS, Venezuela New
riots broke out in the western slums
Wednesday despite martial law
imposed because of two days of
disturbances, and at least four people
were reported killed.
Venezuelans jammed the few
remaining food stores, guarded by
soldiers, to stock up after two days
of riots and looting during which
more than 100 people have been
reported killed and 800 injured.
Thousands have been reported
detained during the protests against
Witness in outlying areas of
Caracas said police exchanged gun
fire with snipers and drove mobs
away from stores. Other witnesses
saw four bodies in the streets of Catia
on Wednesday, including one woman
who had been killed by police as she
tried to loot a store. Police helicopters
circled the capital.
Radio reporters said delinquents
tried to break into homes in Guar
enas, 30 miles west of Caracas, while
homeowners were defending them
selves with guns.
, President Carlos Andres Peres
declared martial law late Tuesday,
saying the "incredible tragedy" of the
violence threatened Venezuela's "con
solidation of democracy."
The president also announced an
agreement between industry and
labor for an immediate wage increase
that would raise the pay of those
earning the minimum wage by more
than 50 percent.
Bus fare increases of 30 percent to
50 percent and price gouging by
drivers were the immediate cause of
the riots, but oil accounts for 90
percent of Venezuela's export
income, and the economy never
recovered from the plunge in world
prices several years ago.
Inflation is expected to reach 70
percent this year, double the 1988
level, and the foreign debt is $33
Peres, in office only four weeks,
announced a sweeping reform pack
age under pressure from international
creditors. It includes freeing interest
rates, doubling gasoline prices and
letting the currency float, which
means higher prices for imports.
Downtown Caracas was calm
Wednesday. Most banks remained
closed, and those, that opened let
customers in one at a time. Other

In a rare reference to the officiat

final seconds. "Bobby (Cremins) was
saying to foul, and I thought he
(Scott) did a great job fouling," he
Cremins, who had a closer look at
Scott's "steal" and winning hoop, had
an entirely different view of the play.
"Dennis made a clean steal, an
absolute clean steal," Cremins said.
"And he turned around and made a
"It was wild, absolutely wild."
UNC forward Steve Bucknall, in
a silent North Carolina locker room,
said he thought that the Tar Heels
had the game won. "Then, I turned
around and Scott had the ball,"
Bucknall said. "And he put it up from
way out there, and it fell for him."
The Tech victory marks the first
time in Hammonds career that the
Yellow Jackets have prevailed over
the Tar Heels.
The win upped Tech's record to 20

In addition to Reid's 20, Williams
and Fox also reached double figures
for the Tar Heels with 17 and 14

all players with eight assists.
