Issuing his strongest hint yet that Israel might target Hamas's political leaders for assassination, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert warned that no "special consideration" would be given to anyone after the latest cross-border rocket attacks. Two Israeli children were wounded seriously when a rocket fell on the town of Sderot Saturday. Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni told reporters that there was "no hope" for peace with the Palestinians as long as rocket fire from Gaza continued. Hamas also has claimed responsibility for a terrorist bomb attack last week that killed one Israeli.

Opposition leader Raila Odinga of Kenya said Sunday he was "prepared" for a political solution to the postelection violence that has wracked the nation for weeks. But he also told reporters he would not "betray our supporters" in talks being mediated by ex-UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan. On Saturday, Odinga said he wouldn't compromise in his demand that President Mwai Kibaki resign. Two days earlier, however, he maintained that Kibaki's resignation was not essential.
