Verona area is scoured for kidnapped general

Paramilitary security forces carried out another massive hunt for Brig. Gen. James Dozier Tuesday while police in Rome questioned two suspected Red Brigades urban guerrillas about the abduction.

Hundreds of heavily armed police combed apartments, cellars, and garages in Verona and industrial estates and disused farm buildings on its outskirts in search of General Dozier, who was kidnapped almost three weeks ago.
