[00:06.32]On Thursday,about three hundred American law enforcement agents
[00:13.37]raided the small Puerto Rican island of Vieques.

[00:24.66]at a United States military base for almost a year.
[00:30.09]No one was hurt in the action.

[01:13.51]of Vieques as a United States navy training center.
[01:18.76]They especially object to bombing exercises carried out there.

[01:31.95]killed a Puerto Rican civilian1 security guard last year.
[01:37.80]The navy suspended exercises at Vieques after the accidental death
[01:45.53]In January,President Clinton and the Governor of Puerto Rico

[02:06.33]However,only non-explosive bombs could be used in the exercises.
[02:13.67]The people of Vieques are to decide by vote
[02:19.10]whether the navy trining center should remain on the island.

[02:48.91]from the American federal government.

[02:58.29]or congressionsl elections.

[03:07.48]bought two-thirds of Vieques.
[03:11.11]The Navy has used the area to train
[03:16.08]for every major conflict since World War Two.

[03:38.33]It is close to the eastern coast of the United States.
[03:43.97]Pilots and naval3 gun operators can train easily with United States marines
[03:52.93]as they land on the island's beach.
[03:57.06]The navy says pilots who train at Vieques learn to drop their bombs
[04:04.51]with much more exactness than pilots who do not train there.
[04:10.54]Opponents say the bombing exercises have damaged the environment
[04:17.88]and the health of the people on Vieques.
