* PARIS
RESEARCHERS using
three-dimensionaltechnology to
study the "Mona Lisa" say the
woman depicted in Leonardo da
Vinci's 16th century masterpiece
was either pregnant or had
recently given birth when she
sat for the painting, according
to Associated Press.
That'was one of many discov-
eries found by French and Cana-
dian researchers during one of
the. most extensive physical
examinations ever carried out
on the artwork.
"Thanks to laser scanning, we
were able to uncover the very
fine gauze veil Mona Lisa was
wearing on her dress. This was
something typical for either
soon-to-be or new mothers at
the time," Michel Menu,
research director of the French
Museums' Center for Research
and Restoration, said Wednes-


day oh LCI television.
Menu said a number of art his-
torians had suggested that she
was pregnant or. had just given
birth.
Researchers have established
that the picture was of Lisa
Gherardini, wife of obscure Flo-
rentine merchant Francesco del
Giocond, and that Leonardo
started painting it in 1503.
The name "Mona Lisa" is the
equivalent of "Madame Lisa."
La Joconde, as the painting is
referred to in many countries, is
,the French version of her mar-
ried name.
The scan revealed depth reso-
lution so detailed it was possi-
ble to see differences in the
height around the paint surface
cracks and in the thickness of
the varnish.
"We now have very precise
information about the thickness
of the layers," Bruno Mottin, of
the French restoration center,


Georgian authorities detain

four Russian military officers
* TBILISI, Georgia
GEORGIAN authorities detained four Russian military offi-
cers on spying charges Wednesday, and security forces surround-
ed Russia's military headquarters in Tbilisi to demand that anoth-
er suspect be handed over, the interior minister said, according to
Associated Press.
Interior Minister Vano Merabishvili said the four Russian mili-
tary intelligence officers had been detained in the Georgian capi-
tal and the Black Sea port of Batumi on charges of espionage.
Interior Ministry forces surrounded the Russian military, head-
quarters in Tbilisi demanding the handover of another Russian offi-
cer accused of spying.
The move highlights escalating tensions in relations between
the ex-Soviet Caucasus nation and its giant northern neighbor,
which has retained military bases in Georgia after the 1991 Soviet
collapse but pledged to withdraw them by the end 2008.


told reporters in Ottawa, Cana-
da. "We know how the painting
'is painted, with very thin layers
of painting. That's one of the
things we couldn't see by the
naked eye, and that Canadian
technology brought us."
John Taylor of Canada's
National Research Council said
there were no signs of any brush
stroke. "That includes the very
fine details of the embroidery
on the dress, the hair," he said.
"This is the 'je ne sais quoi' of
Leonardo. The genius. We don't
know how he applied it."
The scan even revealed
Leonardo's first conception of ...
Mona Lisa.
"The 3-D imaging was able to
detect the incised drawing to
provide us with da Vinci's gen-'
eral conception for the compo-
sition," said Christian Lahanier,
head of the documentation
department of the French ,
research center.
The artist brought the painting "
to France in 1517. It has been in
the Louvre Museum since 1804.
The data collected in 16 hours
of scanning, starting in 2004, ;.
took a year to analyze. It shows -

threatened.
"We didn't see any sign of
paint lifting," Taylor said. "So
for a 500-year-old painting, it's
very good news. And if they con-
tinue to keep it the way.they
have in an environment-con-".
trolled chamber, it could remain
like that for a very long time."
Menu said all the secrets
behind the enigmatic painting
have yet to be revealed, includ- .--
ing Leonardo's techniques.
"We particularly want to.
understand how he painted his
shadows, the famous 'fumato'
effect," Menu said.

French doctors



say pioneering


zero-gravity


surgery on man


was a success


* MERIGNAC, France
A TEAM of French doc-
tors said they successfully
operated on a man in near,
zero-gravity conditions
Wednesday on a flight
looping in the air like a
roller coaster to mimic
weightlessness, according
to Associated Press.
The five-man team and
the patient landed safely at
an airport in southwestern
France after a three-hour
flight, although doctors
said,the.midair surgery to
remove a cyst from the
mans aLrm took only about
10 minutes.
Chief surgeon
Dominique Martin said the
near zero-gravity opera-
tion, the first on a human,
was not technically diffi-
cult, but was aimed at
breaking a barrier in med-
ical expertise.

Robots
The experiment is part of
a broader effort to develop
robots for future opera-
tions from a distance in
space or on Earth.
The surgery went "exact-
ly as we had expected,"
Martin told reporters near
Merignac airport, outside
Bordeaux.
"All the data we collect-
ed allow us to think that
operating on a human in
the conditions of space


Five-man team and

patient land safely


would not present insur-
mountable problems."
The medical team was
strapped down to the walls
of the Airbus 300 Zero-G
plane as it looped up and
down in a total of 25 roller
coaster-like maneuvers,
called parabolas.

Dive
Each dive, creating con-
ditions close to weightless-
ness, lasted 22 seconds -
and the doctors operated
during those intervals only.
The operation,
announced Monday by
Martin and the French
National Center for Space
Studies, is part of a project
backed by the European
Space Agency that aims to
develop Earth-guided sur-.
gical space robots.
The patient, Philippe
Sanchot, was chosen
because he is an avid
bungee-jumper, and accus-
tomed to dramatic gravita-
tional shifts, said Fred-
erique Albertoni, a spokes-
woman for the Bordeaux
hospital where Martin
works.


Sanchot and the six-
member medical team
underwent training in zero-
gravity machines --much
like astronauts use-- to
prepare for the opera-
tion.
The cyst removal opera-
tion was chosen because it
is relatively simple- and
involves a local anesthetic,
Martin said, adding that
the procedure was mainly
used as a "feasibility study"
for possible surgery in
space one day.

Artery
Martin and his team
became the first doctors to
perform microsurgery
under zero-gravity condi-
tions in 2003., mending the
artery in a rat's tail an
operation far more com-
plex than the one Wednes-
day.
NASA has carried out
some robotic surgery
experiments on animal
models at its undersea lab
off the coast of Florida,
which recreates what life
would be like at an orbital
outpost.

Romania has totally reformed




its institutions, EU official says


ROMANIA
Bucharest
THE EU's top enlargement
Official Olli Rehn said Wednes-
S day that Romania, set to join
the EU next year, had com-
pletely reformed its institutions
in the last 20 months since a
centre-right government came
-' to power, according to Associ-
Sated Press.
Rehn thanked Prime Minister
SCalin Popescu Tariceanu, the
Parliament and other institu-
tions for implementing reforms
since they came to power
almost two years ago in prepa-
ration for joining the EU. On
Tuesday the EU told Romania
and Bulgaria they could join the
bloc on January 1.
Romania's four-party gov-
ernment defeated the leftist
Social Democracy Party in
December 2004. There were
doubts about its full commit-
Sment to reforms.
"In the last 20 months we saw
Sa complete transformation in


the way institutions functioned.
I trust Romania will achieve its
objectives and I can hardly wait
to work with Romania for a
stronger Europe, and I can
hardly wait to have a strong ally
that wants peace and coopera-
tion in southeast Europe," he
told reporters after arriving in
the Romanian capital.
However, European Com-
mission President Jose Manuel
Barroso travelling with Rehn
to Bulgaria and Romania said
that Romania should keep up
the hard work to reform its
economy and society.

Impulse

Barroso said that joining the
EU would be a "a strong
impulse for economic and social
development. This doesn't
mean it will be easy, it will
require hard work and co-oper-
ation between the EU and
Romania," he said.
Earlier in Sofia, Barroso tried


to allay fears that the entry of
Bulgaria and Romania two of
Europe's poorest countries -
could pose a threat to the
union's development.
Romanian Prime Minister
Tariceanu said the economy
would continue to grow strong-
ly, but "there won't be only
milk and honey." He said that
while the EU will provide funds
for development projects, the
money is not for wages, which
will only grow if the economy
performs better. "That will be
achieved through the work of
Romanians," he said.
The average monthly wage is
about US$400, while unem-
ployment is 5 per cent. The
economy is expected to grow
by about 7 per cent this year.
The EU report, acknowledg-
ing that both nations have come
up short in their race to catch up
with Western Europe, urged the
bloc to make economic aid con-
ditional on continued progress
in efforts to stamp out corrup-
tion, crack down on organized

Sri Lankan air force strikes


Tamil Tiger base in north


SRI LANKA.
Colombo
SSRI Lankan warplanes'
pounded separatist Tamil Tiger
rebel positions in the north on
SWednesday, the military said.
No information on casualties or
damage was available, accord-
ing to Associated Press.
Meanwhile, a man who
joined the Tamil Tigers in east-
ern Sri Lanka defected from the
group and surrendered to the
country's army, the.military
;" *' said. He claimed to have been
S' beaten by the insurgents.
Arumugan Thanidan, 20,
j. joined the rebels four months
earlier and had received
weapons training, said a
spokesman at the Media Center
for National Security, speaking
on condition of anonymity cit-
ing policy.
Thanidan surrendered to the
army on Tuesday near the east-
ern port town of Trincomalee.
Fighter jets Wednesday
attacked a Tiger base in the
north as months of fighting con-
tinued. "The air force launched
strikes on an identified rebel
Base in Mullativu," said mili-
"':'-tary spokesman Brigadier
.7'Prasad Samarasinghe. He did
not give any details.
Rebel officials were not avail-
able to comment on either gov-
ernment statement.


Separately, troops recovered
50 powerful bombs each weigh-
ing seven kilograms in
Chavakachcheri town in north-
ern Jaffna peninsula, the
defense ministry said.
A spike in violence since
April has killed hundreds of
civilians and combatants from
both sides, leaving the island
nation's four-year-old ceasefire
accord all but disintegrated.
Meanwhile, Suppiah Thamil-
selvan, the rebels' political
leader, onWednesday com-
plained to Nordic cease-fire
monitors that the closure of a
highway that connects the
Tamil-majority north from the
rest of the country has caused a
"human tragedy," with food
and fuel shortages.
Chief truce monitor Lars
Solvberg met Thamilselvan the
in the guerrillas' northern
stronghold, Kilinochchi.
The main access road to
Jaffna was closed when fight-
ing broke out between govern-
ment forces and Tamil rebels
on August 11.
Foreign mediators are strug-
gling to restore life to the
comatose Norwegian-brokered
cease-fire accord, which both
sides say they still endorse
despite clashes that have killed at
least 1,000 combatants and more
than 100 civilians since July.

A GERMAN entrepreneur,
who 'printed crossed-out

and T-shirts as part of a cam-
paign against far-right extrem-

in a case that challenges post-
World War II laws banning the

ing to Associated Press.

bols through his mail-order

Despite a May 5 peace deal
between Darfur's main rebel
group and the government in
i. Khartoum, a large military cam-
r paign has been launched against
g rebels refusing to join the peace
d agreement, the UN and aid
n agencies have said. The'new
1 violence has left at least 350,000
, people cut off from aid in the
north, and created another
t 100,000 or more refugees in the
e past three months.
n "The EU is alarmed about
d the recent developments in
s Sudan, especially the deterio-
e rating humanitarian and secu-
rity situation in Darfur," said
Finland's Minister for European
Affairs Paula Lehtomaki, whose
country now holds the rotating
EU presidency..
"The Darfur conflict has
implications on regional stabil-
ity, on Chad, on the Central
African Republic," Lehtomaki
said. "The only viable and real-
istic.option for p.Lc.iCi- eping in
Darfur is through the UN. The1
Darfur security situation can-
not improve without a UN con-
tribution."
The United Nations has


demanded Sudan accept a UN
force in the region, but Khar-
toum has opposed it and said it
will only accept strengthening
the current AU mission.
Danger
The AU peacekeepers' man-
date runs out in late December.
If no new arrangement is
reached, they could withdraw.
and leave the region open to
more violence.
Some 200,000 people have
been killed and 2.5 million dri-
ven from their homes by fight-
ing since 2003, when the con-
flict started after mainly ethnic
African rebel groups launched a
revolt in protest to what they
said was discrimination by the
Arab-dominated government.
The government responded
with a military assault, and pro-
government militias have sys-'
tematically attacked villagers.
Lehtomaki said it was
increasingly difficult to distrib-
ute humanitarian aid in Darfur,
with only about half of it reach-
ing its destination.

Declarer should not be satisfied
with adopting a promising line of
play when there might be a better
approach available. Any move that
increases his chances of making the
contract without risking it is a step in
the right direction.
Take this case where West led a
spade against six diamonds. South
could see at once that his only poten-
tial losers were two clubs. But rather
than pin his hopes solely on a suc-


cessful finesse an even-money
shot South resolved to augment
his chances by attempting an end-
play.
Accordingly, he took the spade
with the king, drew trumps, cashed
the ace of spades and ruffed a spade.
He then played the K-A of hearts and
ruffed the eight in dummy.
This series of plays eliminated all
the spades'and hearts from the North-
South hands. With the lead now in
dummy, the plan was to lead a club
and, if East followed low, insert the
eight. This would assure the slam
regardless of where the king was
located, since with West on lead any
return was.certain to hand South the
rest of the tricks.
But even the best-laid plans have
been known to go awry, and East
upset the apple cart when he pro-
duced the nine on the first club,
However, declarer had one more
string to his bow. There was no need
to finesse at the moment, he rea-
soned, since the club finesse was still
available if it became necessary.
He therefore ducked the nine -
on the off chance that it might be a
singleton and it was this final
flourish that did his opponents in. It
did not matter whether East or West
won the trick; either way the slam
was in the bag.

Joost Weise v John Cox,
Amsterdam Open 2006.
Sometimes chess can prove a
real heartbreaker. Here Black (to
move) was an international
master much higher rated than
his opponent, and duly
outplayed his stubborn rival by
ever strategic finesses. In the
diagram Black has two extra
pawns, an active king and a
space advantage. It's really a
simple rook endgame; surely
nothing can go wrong? So
thought John Cox, one of only
two Old Etonians to reach the
top levels of British chess. There
are several ways for Black to
proceed, and 1...Rh7
threatening Rh2+ would put
White on the ropes. But the

puzzle, sadly for Cox, is to find the

disaster.

Pope: tourism should



help cultures bridge gaps


SVATICAN CITY
POPE Benedict XVI said
Wednesday that' tourism
should help different cultures
bridge gAps and promote dia-
logue between the world's dif-
ferent people, according to
Associated Press.
Wednesday was World
Tourism Day, and the pontiff
made the remarks before
about 30,000 pilgrims and
tourists gathered in a sunny
St. Peter's Square to attend
his weekly general audience.
"I hope that tourism will
increasingly promote dialogue
and respect between cultures,
thereby becoming an open


door to peace and harmonious
cohabitation," Benedict said.
His words came two days
after Benedict met with Mus-
lim envoys at the papal sum-
mer residence of Castel Gan-
dolfo in an attempt to end
anger in the Islamic world
caused by his recent remarks
on holy war.
Faiths
In that meeting, Benedict
has told the Muslim ambas-
sadors that the two faiths must
overcome any historic enmi-
ties and together reject vio-
lence, since the future of
humanity is at stake.


Benedict angered the Mus-
lim world when he quoted in a
speech during a trip to
Germany words attributed to
a 14th century Byzantine
emperor: "Show me just
what Mohammed brought
that was new, and' there
you will find things only
evil and inhuman, such as his
command to spread by
the sword the faith he
preached."
Benedict has expressed
regret for offending Muslims .
by his remarks and said they
did not reflect his personal
views, but he has not offered a
complete apology as some had
sought.
