instrument of violence" represented in the attacks
against students, and also decried "the indifference of
the international community." The newspaper said that
recent attacks on Palestinian schools, carried out for
two consecutive days, imperil "the future of a people,
their dreams and hope for a better world."

official Vatican daily. (L'Osservatore Romano appears
in Rome  in the afternoon, bearing a cover date of the
following day.)
