and injuring 2 others. The

Chilean driver and tour guide were also
injured. The

"The bus in which they were riding
swerved to avoid an approaching truck

on a rugged mountain highway. The bus
apparently ran off the road."



The 14 passengers involved are members
of a 64 person Jewish tour group

from Connecticut and New Jersey. A
Celebrity spokesman says the group

booked the bus excursion on their own
with an independent operator that

the company has never dealt with.

"We encourage our guests to take our
shore excursions because we have

thoroughly checked out the providers
and we have a lot confidence in the

guests what to do on their own

time."



The two injured passengers both
suffered broken bones and are in stable

ages of the 12 deceased range

from 63 to 79.



The Millennium is on a 14-day South

The Oakland Zoo just welcomed its
latest addition-- a baby giraffe named
Chioke (Chee- oh- kee), which is
Nigerian in origin and means A Gift
From God.

The giraffe is only seven weeks old,
but he's already over six feet tall and
weighs over 200 pounds.

Chioke also has an independent

He enjoys helping himself, and doesn't
like assistance with things.
