4) This week's summary of under-reported news

Compiled by Bob Nixon

 Anti-poverty activists blasted the dubious pledge made by rich nations at the G8 Summit, committing $60 billion to the fight against global AIDS and to recommit to the pledge made in 2005 to double aid to Africa by 2010.

 In February, the Bolivian Supreme Court indicted the former president Gonzalo Sanchez de Lozada, and pushed for his extradition from the U.S. on murder and other charges related to what is known in Bolivia as "Black October" -- but Washington has ignored the extradition request.

 Gay rights groups are gearing up opposition to the nomination of Dr. James W. Holsinger as U.S. surgeon general, who claimed same-sex relationships were not natural and could lead to public health problems.
