Havana, AP


               Increasingly dangerous Hurricane Michelle picked up speed overnight and was


lashing Cuba’s small Isle of Youth with its winds early yesterday before taking aim at


the main island, and possibly Florida and the Bahamas later.


               After entering Cuba on its south – western coast, the storm late November 4, 2001


was projected to move north across the island, passing to the east of Havana on the


northern coast, home to two million of the island’s 11 million citizens.


               Tens of thousands of people have been evacuated from low – lying areas across Cuba


over the past several days. Civil defence authorities on Saturday ordered 150000 people


evacuated in flood – prone areas of Havana alone.


               Describing Michelle as “an extremely dangerous hurricane,” the U.S National


Hurricane Service in Miami said the storm was about 230 kms south – southwest of


Havana at 7 p.m. yesterday Thai time.


               Michelle was moving northward at 19 kphs. The storm had sustained winds near


215 kphs, with hurricane force winds extending out 75 km.


               Forecasters said a storm surge of nearly six metres, in which a huge, fast – moving


wall of ocean water could flood a large area, was possible near and to the east of where


Michelle makes landfall on Cuba’s southern coast.


               Michelle, which has killed 12 prople in Central America and Jamaica, picked up


much of its strength afterward but now was not expected to strengthen more, the


centre said. Its winds were stronger than Hurricane Lili, Which wiped out crops and left


thousands homeless in Cuba in 1996

Sydney, AP


               More than one – third of surgeons interviewed for a new survey admitted


administering high doses of pain killers to hasten the deaths of terminally ill patients.


               Australia’s most vocal mercy killing advocate, Dr. Philip Nitschke, said yesterday


the government should review euthanasia legislation in the light of the findings.


               The University of Newcastle’s survey of 683 surgeons in New South Wales state,


Published in the respected Medical Journal of  Australia, found that 247 had  given a


terminally ill patient high doses of painkillers with the intention of hastening death.


               That intention was defined as euthanasia under Australian law, the study’s author,


Dr. Charles Douglas, said.


               The study published yesterday said that only a few of the patients had clearly asked for


euthanasia.


               “The vast majority of patients were only a few hours of days away from their death,”


Dr. Douglas said. “The patient is barely conscious and not in a situation to discuss what


happens next.”


               Euthanasia is illegal in Australia. One province, the Northern Territory, briefly


Legalized mercy killing in 1996 and Dr. Nitschke carried out euthanasia on four people


Before federal parliament overturned the legalization.


               About 5% of surgeons surveyed admitted to giving a patient a single, lethal


injection upon the patient’s clear request. This result was consistent with findings in


other countries Dr. Douglas said.
